Do you ever feel like the world is out of control? I do, but this truth keeps me sane.
“And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.” ~ Revelation 19:6
Humanist philosophies, in various forms, teach that the universe exists in chaos without thought or intention. This lie causes many believe that life is a series of accidents and coincidences. Not so, my friend!
I take great comfort in knowing that my God is in full control. The Bible plainly teaches that God is (more…)

I love Thanksgiving. The good food, time with family, and football are enjoyable. I even love the name – Thanksgiving. It boldly declares the purpose of the day. Let’s give God thanks today!
We are to be thankful all the time, but it is human nature to look at what we lack instead of what we have. This creates a feeling of loss and dissatisfaction. Furthermore, we have a short memory when it comes to God’s blessings and people’s sacrifices for us. Add that to a sense of entitlement and we have a recipe for ingratitude!
There is a simple recipe for gratitude. Realize that you deserve nothing and that every good thing in your life is a gift from God. Consider that things could always be worse if God was not caring for you. Compare your life now to how terrible it could be. Things could always be worse. This awareness creates a profound sense of thanksgiving.
Let’s look at 3 areas of gratitude we can be thankful for today.
The world is in shambles today. More examples of riots, racism, terrorism, bigotry, class warfare and social unrest are in the news every night. Everyone is talking about the problem, but no one seems to have the answer. New laws and politicians are not the answer. You cannot legislate righteousness. You can preach righteousness. God’s people cannot be silent on the issues of the day. The world needs the Light desperately. It’s time to look to God’s Word for the solution.
For more in-depth content on this subject, the full audio of a recent sermon is at the end of this post.
God sees the world differently.
Most people in the world focus on differences and declare one segment of society better or more deserving than another.
One group is declared more worthy, deserving and therefore protected by special rules or unique liberties.
Rich vs. Poor
Old vs. Young
White vs. Black
American vs. Mexican
Police vs. Minority
There are much more examples of class warfare. I’m sure you can think of a few not listed here. While it is true that we have problems in each of these areas that need to be addressed, pitting one group against another is not the answer. We don’t need a revolution. We need revival!
Jesus taught that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand. There are those that have found that inciting division is a way to increase their power and wealth. We must not fall for their devices. (more…)
