Intro

Friday, March 22 2019
from the Brisbane Revival Fellowship

Good morning all......


Only 285 days to the year 2020


Scripture Of The Day

O LORD of hosts, blessed [is] the man that trusteth in thee.
Psalms 84:12

Read The Bible In a Year

Joshua 10-12 ; Luke 1:39-56

Thoughts For The Day

God answers prayers because he has promised he would, not because you make promises to him.

It is unwise to be too sure of one's own wisdom. It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.

Most of the methods that Satan uses to confuse and tempt can be very beautiful and very alert. He seems to be not the enemy of God, but the uplifter and edifier of man.


Motivation For The Day

There is no chance, no destiny, no fate, that can hinder or control the firm resolve of a determined soul.

Personal Story Of The Day

That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:14 References from Galatians 3:10-14 If youve ever spent time around toddlers, you can understand the emphasis of Pauls argument in our verses today. As soon as you warn a two year old not to put his fingers in the fan, nothing seems more enticing to him. If you instruct her that carrots are good for her, she wants nothing to do with them. Everything Paul has said since Galatians 2:15 regarding Jews, Gentiles, Law, faith, righteousness, justification, the Spirit, and Abraham comes into focus in this passage. His main point is simple: observing the Law never produced righteousness. He knows this because Scripture says very clearly that those whom God deems righteous live by faith (Hab 2:4), while those who live by observing the Law are not living by faith (Lev 18:5; Gal. 3:1112). The problem with this latter way of life is that it places one under the Laws curse since no one can actually do all that the Law commands (v10). Paul is probably thinking about the blessings and curses pronounced when the Law was given again in Deuteronomy. Deuteronomy 28:114 promised blessing to Israel so long as they did all the Law said. Deuteronomy 28:1568 recounts all the curses that would come for failure to obey. Paul knew Israels history. Israel had been forced into exile in the past and, even after they had returned to the Promised Land, they had lived for most of that time under the rule of foreign overlords (see Deut 28:3266). Israel continually found itself under the curse of exile and foreign domination predicted by the Law. For Paul this could only mean one thing... those who had tried to live by the Law had inherited curse rather than blessing. The promised blessing had to come from some other source.

Jokes Of The Day

Another installment aimed at helping understand advertising lingo.

"A number of different approaches are being tried."
(We are still grasping at straws.)

(We are so far behind schedule the customer should be happy
just to get it delivered.)

"Test results were extremely gratifying."

"The entire concept will have to be abandoned."
(The only person who understood the thing, quit.)

"We'll look into it."
(Forget it! We have enough problems for now.)

"Please read and initial."
(Let's spread the responsibility around for the mistakes.)

"Rugged."
(Too heavy to lift!)

"Lightweight."
(Lighter than rugged.)

Devotional Thoughts Of The Day

A friend told me that he feels closest to God when he's the busiest. He explained that when demands are the greatest, he finds himself most reliant on the Lord's strength. He pointed out, however, that unless he takes time for daily worship, his work can quickly become an escape. Many people engage in activity for activity's sake and use busyness as a device to avoid facing reality. Just as alcohol can deaden the senses to personal relationships, family obligations, and community responsibilities, so also constant work can be a narcotic. It dulls our sensitivity to the deeper issues of life. About 3,000 years ago, the author of Ecclesiastes discovered this. He sought satisfaction by busying himself with building houses and planting vineyards. But then as he thought about the work he had done, he realized it was full of emptiness (2:10-11). We can make the same mistake, even in the name of the Lord. Could this be the reason some of us try to keep the church running by our own efforts but forget that fulfillment comes only from using the power of the Holy Ghost? Are we equally laboring towards worship, prayer and meditation? If so, it's time now to worship before we get caught again in the trap of working merely for work's sake. *********** Love is the summary of all things Christian. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 There was once a man and his betrothed (Joseph and Mary) that found she was 'with child'. He loved her, but feared she loved another... he didn't know at this stage that God had caused her pregnancy, One thing was certain, he was not the father. Joseph was chosen to be the adoptive father of Jesus Christ... he must have had a great knowledge of God's love, because it was his job to teach the young Jesus the principles of life. Joseph demonstrated his knowledge of love and Godly judgment right at the beginning. What would God want us to do if we discovered our fiancee had been unfaithful? This is what the law demanded... " If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her; Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you." De 22:23-24. According to the bible... Joseph was a just man. What would a man endowed with the knowledge of justice do? The answer is here... "Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily." Mt 1:19. Joseph demonstrated his love for his chosen virgin and demonstrated his worthiness to tutor the saviour of the world. Rather that obey the law, he obeyed the Spirit. He was intending to divorce her quietly, to protect her from shame and judgment. He was willing to love her, despite her apparent sin... he was going to set her free. There is no greater love than this. This is the type of love that God wants us to understand and practice. You can imagine his relief when he discovered the truth about Mary's pregnancy... it was of the Holy Ghost. Do you still feel unloved? Jesus Christ has set us free... let's go and tutor those who don't understand God's love and build a church upon it.
