3-4-2016 God Is Creator Of Order

The magnificent design and order to life demands faith in the Creator God. Jesus pointed to inherent order in agriculture when He said: “the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come” (Mark 4:28-29 NKJV). Such order is impossible without law from a Higher Power. God decreed, “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.” (Genesis 8:22 NKJV). Abraham “waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder (Greek word, “technician, craftsman”) and maker (Greek word, “artisan, framer”) is God” (Hebrews 11:10 NKJV). Truly, the “technology” of life is impossible and nonsensical without the All-powerful, All-intelligent Creator God!

2-6-2015   Dis-orderly Life

“Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40 NKJV). Whose “order?” God said: “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge” (Hebrews 13:4 NKJV). Those who disregard God don’t have “illegitimate” children, just “single mothers;” there’s no “marital spats,” just “domestic violence;” there’s no “parental responsibility,” just “it takes a village;” there’s no “faithfulness,” just “divorce for every cause;” there’s no “wedding ceremony,” just “living together;” there’s no “loving commitment,” just “hooking up!” The “PC” change of terms doesn’t change the fact that disregarding God only confuses and degrades morals. “Fornicators and adulterers” have illegitimate children because God’s Law has been violated! “For God is not the author of confusion but of peace, as in all the churches of the saints” (1 Corinthians 14:33 NKJV).

Organize In 2011?

How will I organize in 2011? The same way I organized in 2010. Keep my bills organized as to date due, my personal files in alphabetical order, and prioritize my many other duties, one day at a time. I don’t use a planner, pda, or anything else. Mostly, just keep it in my head.

Since we have been studying the book of …

Since we have been studying the book of Joshua on Wednesday nights, I’m amazed at the great detail in God’s plan of allocating the parcels of land to the various tribes. Not only is God the God of order, but the God of great detail as well.

When God lays out a pattern or plan, there’s no wondering about it – God lays it out in great detail, and then expects us to carry it out with the same detail.
