_ Preachers 11-15-14

Today I was sitting on the side of the bed thinking about those who preached down through the ages from the bible and the subjects of the messages that they preached. I went into scripture to find a few to share. If you want to discover more, you have to dig a little deeper into the word.

Today’s Prayer

Father, I come to You this morning standing in the gap for my brothers and sisters everywhere to ask that You would remind us that our prayer-line to You is a two-way one. It is not just for us to call You in a crisis situation, it is also for You to call us. How can we know Your will for us if we are never “at home,” quiet enough, to receive Your calls? Are we so preoccupied with our worldly cares that we don’t hear and recognize Your voice? Do we not take time to be still and to wait upon You, Lord? Remind us that You don’t just call on Sundays. You want to be able to reach us any time and any place, when You might need us, or when You know that we need You. Our lives could be so much richer and fuller, so much more Christian and worthwhile if we talked with You every day! Help us to see this, Lord. It’s ourcall, isn’t it? In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

Some Old Time Preachers and Their Subjects

Enoch preached Judgment to Come

Jude 14-15 – 

Enoch, who lived in the seventh generation after Adam, prophesied about these people. He said, “Listen! The Lord is coming with countless thousands of his holy ones 15 to execute judgment on the people of the world. He will convict every person of all the ungodly things they have done and for all the insults that ungodly sinners have spoken against him.”

Noah preached Righteousness

2 Peter 2:5 – 

And God did not spare the ancient world—except for Noah and the seven others in his family. Noah warned the world of God’s righteous judgment. So God protected Noah when he destroyed the world of ungodly people with a vast flood.

Nathan preached Sin

2 Samuel 12:7 – 

Then Nathan said to David, “You are that man! The Lord, the God of Israel, says: I anointed you king of Israel and saved you from the power of Saul.

Elijah preached Decision

1 Kings 18:21 – 

Then Elijah stood in front of them and said, “How much longer will you waver, hobbling between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow him! But if Baal is God, then follow him!” But the people were completely silent.

John preached Repentance

Matthew 3:1-2 – 

In those days John the Baptist came to the Judean wilderness and began preaching. His message was, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.

Peter preached Christ

Acts 4:11-12 – 

For Jesus is the one referred to in the Scriptures, where it says, ‘The stone that you builders rejected has now become the cornerstone.’ There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.”

Quote of the Day

Our first problem is that our attitude towards sin is more self-centered than God-centered. We are more concerned about our own “Victory” over sin than we are about the fact that our sin grieves the heart of God. We cannot tolerate failure in our struggle with sin chiefly because we are success oriented, not because we know it is offensive to God.
