Scripture reading: Psalm 25:22

I really praise God to be part of the family of God. A family is a unit, though many different members or parts. So, if we are united as the family of God, then we can accomplish great things for we feel for each other. We understand each other’s problems because we feel and experience some of them. That is how a family goes. If one member of the family hurts, then all feel the pain. I am so glad I am a part of the family of God, and we appreciate the prayers of the saints. It is what has kept us going, what has kept us in the Lord, that we can stand before you at the different times, and say, “Praise God for His goodness. Praise God for His glory. Praise God!”

One day the Lord came to me and said, “I am your preserver. I have preserved you.” For the first time my eyes were open to the true understanding of being preserved. I reflected to the times during different attacks of the enemy, physical attacks, and different attacks, that He has preserved. Praise God. The song said, “When we’ve been there ten thousand years, bright shining as the sun, we’ve no less days to sing God’s praise, than when we first begun.” After the ten thousand years have gone, you have no less than when you first begun. The ten thousand years are not the end, but it is the beginning. Praise God. All that we enjoy now, it is only storing up, building up for after, to continue in His praises and in His glory. So don’t be discouraged. Don’t be faint hearted. Only trust Him. Only trust Him. He will lead the way. He will get us out of all the problems. He is the solver of problems, hallelujah. He is our healer! He is our deliverer! He is our fortress. He is our strong tower in which we can hide. Sometimes when the enemy comes pressing in, we forget those words, because he deceives us. But when we are in trouble is the time that we are to seek the Lord, and begin to speak the word of deliverance that he can hear, that he can depart. God is everything. Amen.

Thought for today: So don’t be discouraged. Don’t be faint hearted. Only trust Him. Only trust Him. He will lead the way. He will get us out of all the problems.

Scripture reading: Judges 11:29-40

In the book of Judges, Jephthah, a judge of Israel, swore to God to give as an offering the first thing that met him on his return from a victorious battle. His beloved and only daughter met him and he had to give her to the Lord.

His character was under severe testing. He did not flinch or say. “Lord, I did not mean this.” He just turned her over to God, and since we know that God does not accept human sacrifice, then this scripture could only mean that she was given to God as a bond servant of the temple for the rest of her life.

Numbers 30:2, “If a man vow a vow unto the Lord, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.”

When one reads a law as the above, the first thought which comes is, “What relationship does this have to us and our time?” The Scripture says that the law was a school-master to bring us unto Christ. When therefore we come to Christ, we do not destroy the Law. Through Christ in me I will not become a Covenant breaker. My vows at Baptism – that I will follow the Lord in death, burial and resurrection – are kept by the power of the Holy Ghost.

Paul describes “Covenant Breakers” as one of the signs of the end-time and in our time we have seen some of the greatest examples of Covenant Breakers – Hitler for instance, signed a non-aggression pact with Russia while he was preparing to attack them. More recently Russia signed a S.A.L.T. treaty with the West and has broken almost every line of it. Nearer to home – husbands and wives make matrimonial vows to one another and break them in record numbers all over the world today.

Let us return unto the Lord, to our vows of salvation, our vows of baptism, and our vows to follow the Lord wherever He goes. Let us recommit ourselves to our families and to the family of God.

(Excerpt from The Omega Message, October 1983)

Thought for today: Let us return unto the Lord and keep the covenants we have vowed unto Him.
