Hiya, Folks! Top o' the mornin' to you. I'd forgotten to mention earlier that we were hosting the Washington, DC Victory Campaign with Kenneth Copeland live on the big screen here at River Worship Center this weekend.
Yawn! Got any toothpicks to prop my eyes open, anyone? Whoa! Gooooooodddd Morrrrrrrnnnnniiinnnnggg! Let's get this day cookin' the right way! You didn't hear me say that about toothpicks, did you? Nawwww. Sometimes, though, I think I need them when I first wake up in the morning with all the hours I've been keeping lately. Brother!
G'Mornin', Folks! Bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, are you? Good! Let's get going on this day. I'm doing some coffee-blending today again. Costco has been offering its usual San Francisco Bay French Roast -- which we've been buying -- along with a privately-labeled Columbian Supremo.
Well, let's see if we can get on with the day today. Hi, Y'all! Have you ever heard, or heard about, Ed Silvoso and Market Place Ministries? Ed is an Argentinean businessman and evangelist to whom the Lord revealed a unique methodology for transforming communities with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Over the course of the past few years, Ed has been personally involved in the transformation of some 50 communities.
Greetings! A few weeks ago, I shared with you the transition we’ve been going through with our ministry and the fact that we have suspended our regular daily operation of River Worship Center in preparation for team ministry traveling throughout the arctic.
Good Morning! Longtime friend and former VP of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Jim Bramlett, sent me the following link to some pretty amazing footage out of Egypt.At about 1:19 into the piece shown on MSNBC (see the piece on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWQKOj9Sxkg) there is a very clear image of a pale green rider on a pale green horse appearing in the crowd, riding through the crowd and vanishing into thin air.
It may appear that I go overboard with this but I can't help it. I get started with this stuff and can't stop. I love the parallels in Scripture. Math and mathematical principles abound in the Word of God. God is very precise in everything that He does, and we govern our lives according to that precision.
Well, did I leave you scratching your head last week? Let’s see if we can do some more head scratching this week as we look at more mathematical arrangements in the Word of God. A lot of people don’t realize just how precise God is! Think about the layout of the Universe. There is nothing random about it. When God spoke those fateful words, “Light be!” (“Let there be light, KJV”) Creation began unfolding instantly. He never told it to stop, and as a matter of fact, the Universe is still expanding as we speak. It has never stopped. In any case, let’s continue where we left off last week.
We’ve been dealing with some pretty weighty topics over the last months. Let’s take a break for the next few weeks and take a look at some unusual mathematical features that appear repetitiously in the Word. I’ve always been a math hound and numbers played a great part in my early education (hence, a substantial part of my business career being based in math).
Well, I’m hoping I can wrap up this part of the series today in our look at the life of David and what he had to overcome between the time he was anointed by Samuel and took the throne of Judah and Benjamin some 13 years later prior to taking the throne of the entire nation of Israel.
