Let's begin again today with the amplified version of Jesus' declaration of blessing for those who are persecuted:
Whenever we think of the term, "persecution," in today's vernacular, and especially among those who have an "end times" mindset, we tend to view it as a lead-in to "tribulation" -- and for some, the so-called "Great Tribulation."
In this week's Coffee Break, while we continue with the same theme we began last week in dealing with being God's peacemakers, I'd like to share with you a story from my early childhood years -- a story which marked the beginning of my parents' miraculous years of ministry in Alaska -- a story which illustrates the authority that we have. Once again, here is what Jesus said:
In the next couple of Coffee Breaks, as we continue with the truths of Jesus' character expressed in the Sermon on the Mount, I'd like to deal with something that some folks may consider as controversial and even heretical -- and that is the ability we have IN CHRIST to literally change the chaos and strife around us by the same simple declaration that Jesus used.
To repeat what we started with last week in this series, we are talking about the personality, the makeup, the very essence of the Lord Jesus Christ.
During the past few months, I've been sharing in our local fellowship a revelation from what we commonly refer to as The Sermon on the Mount.
Solutions, Salutations, Greetings, Blessings, etc., etc., etc.! In case you missed that, Hi! Been another one of those weeks, folks! Can't seem to catch up with myself. Everything that can interrupt our activities has.
This is a bit tardy, but allow me to express my thanks to the more than one thousand people who sent me individual birthday greetings for my 70th birthday!
Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord and Bridegroom, Jesus Christ! With all that the Lord has been doing in our midst, and all the changes that have been and are occurring, it seemed appropriate to cover the significant things He has been speaking, as well as some of the things we have been experiencing.
