Our gracious Heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day, a beautiful rainy Monday morning, the first day of the work week, a fresh start, a new chance to learn more of Your word, and to share it with others. Lord, as we study Your word today, we pray You will increase our ability to learn, and to retain the information so we can follow Your direction more closely each day. We pray You will increase our knowledge daily, and reveal deep, and secret things that will give us that deeper understanding of Your word, and give us a clearer picture of You, and to have a deeper appreciation of the work, and grace that was performed for us through Your son, and our savior, Jesus Christ. Lord, help us to have a deeper, more accurate understanding of kindness, so that we can be kind to others in truth. Help all of us understand when we accept and give approval of another asking for approval of a sinful life, we are not being kind, but sinning by leading that person to a hell without reprieve. Lord, give us the power, the courage, and strength to be truly kind, and encourage the person living in sin to examine their ways, change their ways according to scripture so they too may enjoy eternal life in heaven, that eternal life Your son suffered so much for, so it would be available. Lord, we continue to knock at Your door, to be a clanging gong in behalf of the homeless, the helpless, and those who have lost all hope. We pray for the child who suffers, the child who is being taught a false doctrine, and others who are not taught anything about You. We pray for the orphan, the widow, and widower. We pray for the single parent, and the one parent child. We pray for all these suffering people that You will provide comfort, protection, peace, and knowledge of Your word so they too can find their way to a place where suffering and death no longer exist. Lord we thank You for the work at the prison last night, blessing us with a good service, and I pray the sermon will touch at least one heart in such a way they will come to a greater commitment to You, to serving You. Please be with the prisoners keeping them safe. Lord we thank You for all our great blessings, and repent and ask forgiveness for all our sins. We thank you for providing our daily needs, and continue to come to You to fulfill those needs, and we come in full faith, knowing You will provide as You have promised. Finally Lord, we once again pray for America, bring her to a glory she has never know Lord, through a commitment to You she has never known. Let us carry the banner of Christianity to all the world, that other nations may turn from their evil ways as well. We pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
About me…Jim Carmichael
I am committed to the re-establishment of truth. I am convinced there is only one truth, there can only be one truth, and that is found in scripture.
I believe that no one man has the complete understanding of the absolute total truth of scripture.
I believe that we can have a great command of the truth by studying scripture, and considering each others positions in understanding scripture with an open but firm mind.
I want to share as many articles from various writers as possible, read their articles, and as an old friend used to say, eat the meat, spit out the bones. However, in the process we can come up with the truth of the scriptures. With today's technology, there is no reason we can not come to a common ground of understanding, based on absolute truth of scripture and not based upon opinion.
