Intro

Saturday, May 30 2020
from the Brisbane Revival Fellowship

If you are still alive it is a very good day.


Only 216 days to the year 2021


Scripture Of The Day

But godliness with contentment is great gain.
1 Timothy 6:6

Read The Bible In a Year

2 Chronicles 10-12 ; John 11:30-57

Thoughts For The Day

"Always do right. This will surprise some people and astonish the rest."

The older you get, the better you realize you were.

The reason most people never reach their goals is that they don't define them, or ever seriously consider them as believable or achievable. Winners can tell you where they are going, what they plan to do along the way, and who will be sharing the adventure with them

Personal Story Of The Day



    Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: Matthew 7:7

References from Mark 10:46-52


Bartimaeus may have been a blind roadside beggar who occupied one of the lowest rungs on Israels social ladder. But Bartimaeus knew what he needed from Jesus and he wouldnt be silenced until he got it. His persistence is remarkable considering that everyone around him did their best to shut him up and keep him from interrupting Jesus. This story is also interesting because by this time Jesus was on a determined course to Jerusalem to face His impending death on the cross (Mark 10:3234). But even with His own rejection and unspeakable suffering weighing on His mind, Jesus took the time to love and heal a poor blind man.

Bartimaeus was not only persistent in calling for Jesus help, but in one very important way he saw things more clearly than many people in Israel who had not lost their eyesight. His shout, Jesus, Son of David (v47), was an acknowledgment of the Savior as Israels Messiah, a statement of faith that relatively few Israelites were willing to make. Jesus made no attempt to silence the beggar or deny that He deserved this messianic title. Obviously, God had opened Bartimaeuss spiritual eyes, and he had genuine faith.

When Jesus had Bartimaeus brought to Him, there was no hesitation in the blind mans request. He believed that Jesus could give him his sight, and Jesus honored the boldness of Bartimaeuss faith. His sight returned immediately, and he then gave evidence of the genuineness of his faith by following Jesus on the road (v52).



Jokes Of The Day

Judge Jerry Buchmeyer of the US District Court for the Northern District
of Texas writes a monthly article for the Texas Bar Journal. Often, he
cites unusual exchanges between lawyers and witnesses during trials.

The following true exchange says it all:

Lawyer: "So, Doctor, you determined that a gunshot wound was the cause
of death of the patient?"
Doctor: "That's correct."
Lawyer: "Did you examine the patient when he came to the emergency
room?"
Doctor: "No, I performed the autopsy."
Lawyer: "OK, were you aware of his vital signs when he was at the
hospital?"
Doctor: "He came into the emergency room in shock and died a short
time later."
Lawyer: "Did you pronounce him dead at that time?"
Doctor: "No, I am the pathologist who performed the autopsy. I was
not involved with the patient initially."
Lawyer: "Well, are you even sure then, that he died in the emergency
room."
Doctor: "That is what the records indicate."
Lawyer: "But if you weren't there, how could you have pronounced him
dead, having not seen or physically examined the patient at
that time?"
Doctor: "The autopsy showed massive hemorraging in the chest area and
that was the cause of death."
Lawyer: "I understand that, but you were not actually present to
examine the patient and pronounce him dead, isn't that
right?"
Doctor: "No, sir, I did not see the patient or actually pronounce him
dead, but I did perform an autopsy and right now his brain is
in a jar over at the county morgue. As for the rest of the
patient, for all I know, HE COULD BE OUT PRACTICING LAW
SOMEWHERE!!"

Costello: I just got my first computer.
Abbott: That's great Lou. What did you get?
Costello: A Pentium II-266, with 40 Megs of RAM, a 2.1 Gig
hard drive, and a 24X CD-ROM.
Abbott: That's terrific, Lou
Costello: But I don't know what any of it means!!
Abbott: You will in time.
Costello: That's exactly why I am here to see you.
Abbott: Oh?
Costello: I heard that you are a real computer expert.
Abbott: Well, I don't know-
Costello: Yes-sir-ee. You know your stuff. And you're going
to train me.
Abbott: Really?
Costello: Uh huh. And I am here for my first lesson.
Abbott: O.K. Lou. What do want to know?
Costello: I am having no problem turning it on, but I heard
that you should be very careful how you turn it off.
Abbott: That's true.
Costello: So, here I am working on my new computer and I want
to turn it off. What do I do?
Abbott: Well, first you press the Start button, and then-
Costello: No, I told you, I want to turn it off.
Abbott: I know, you press the Start button-
Costello: Wait a second. I want to turn it off. Off. I know
how to start it. So tell me what to do.
Abbott: I did.
Costello: When?
Abbott: When I told you to press the Start button.
Costello: Why should I press the Start button?
Abbott: To shut off the computer.
Costello: I press Start to stop.
Abbott: Well Start doesn't actually stop the computer.
Costello: I knew it! So what do I press.
Abbott: Start
Costello: Start what?
Abbott: Start button.
Costello: Start button to do what?
Abbott: Shut down.
Costello: You don't have to get rude!
Abbott: No, no, no! That's not what I meant.
Costello: Then say what you mean.
Abbott: To shut down the computer, press-
Costello: Don't say, "Start!"
Abbott: Then what do you want me to say?
Costello: Look, if I want to turn off the computer, I am
willing to press the Stop button, the End button
and Cease and Desist button, but no one in their
right mind presses the Start to Stop.
Abbott: But that's what you do.
Costello: And you probably Go at Stop signs, and Stop at
green lights.
Abbott: Don't be ridiculous.
Costello: I am being ridiculous? Well. I think it's about
time we started this conversion.
Abbott: What are you talking about?
Costello: I am starting this conversation right now. Good-bye.

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day


 As a deadly tornado ripped through Will County, Illinois, a young father sat cradling his infant child, born just 3 weeks before. When the fierce, howling winds finally subsided and calm had returned, the man's house was gone... and so was his baby. But according to the news report, the father found his child in a field near his house... alive and well! And so was the rest of his family.

When asked by a reporter if he was angry that he had lost everything he owned, he replied, "No, I just thank God I have my baby and my family. Some people don't even have that. Nothing else is important."

Often it takes times of tragedy to remind us what really matters in life. When things are going well, we can easily get preoccupied with what we own. We become tied to so many nonessential, unimportant things. We tend to grow overly concerned about cars, houses, furniture, appliances, clothes, and countless other trappings of modern life. But when life is reduced to the essentials, as it was in the Illinois tornado, we recall again that life itself is enough reason to give thanks to God.

Have you spent time today praising God for your life and for the people He has given you to share it with? That's what really matters.

Jerusalem, Jerusalem

O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!
Matthew 23:37

The judgment over the world, over sin, was about to come. But prior to this, Jesus cried out lamentation after lamentation. Like darts of fire, the Word pierced hard and unrepentant hearts. Up to this point, the religious leaders might have repented, but it seemed the more God's glory was revealed, the harder their hearts became. Jesus ends His speech in the temple court by prophesying about Jerusalem's future. Anguish is evident in His voice. He so wants to gather all the residents of Jerusalem, the house of Israel, but you were not willing.

Human will has an ability to resist even the most loving appeal from God. God respects our integrity and does not force us into anything, but He requires us to face the consequences of our decisions. For Jerusalem the consequences were great. The temple was destroyed, the town was burned to the ground and its residents were injured, killed or taken prisoner.

Jesus saw this plainly, and He wept. No one else understood. Superficial confidence refused to face reality. Pride became more arrogant than ever. But a mere forty years later, one generation later, every word Jesus said was completely fulfilled. The army of Titus, the tenth Roman legion, was as merciless as the wild beast in Daniel's vision about the fourth empire. It crushed, trampled and swallowed up everything under its feet so that not a single stone was left upon another. The time of seeking was over.
