We are having a wonderful time studying the Old Testament book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah had a very hard job: to prophesy the end of the kingdom of Judah where they would go into captivity for 70 years.

In Chapter 14 God explains to Jeremiah that the prophets of his day were liars and deceivers. They are telling the people that there will be peace and not war, but God is telling Jeremiah that there will be war not peace. These prophets were not preaching the word of God but their own words. They were not sent by God, but they sent themselves to be prophets to the people.

Today we have many preachers who were not sent of God but have taken up their post as preachers on their own. Therefore, many are preaching false doctrine. They preach a prosperity gospel and are denying the judgment of God.

God is a God of love, but he is also a God of anger and judgment. We must always fear him, not only as our Lord and king, our daily Comforter, but we should also understand that he is a God of judgment, and he will judge all who sin against him.

Creation Sunday

Today in Sunday School I taught a lesson on creation. I told about the scientists who believed in God and Jesus Christ and in creation. Until about 1850 almost all scientists believed in creation without doubt. After Charles Darwin published his "Origin of Species," many scientists began to believe that creation did not come from God but that evolution came from the elements of the world. This brought a complete change in scientific theories, and today most scientists are directly opposed to creation and teach instead a humanist theory of beginnings--historical evolution.

Bro. Bob Jones preached a good message on creation in the morning service. Then, he, his wife, Sue, and the Kittle family went out with me to eat with my three grandsons. We had a good time of fellowship; then I took my grandsons to my house for the afternoon.

Ge 1:1 ¶ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Ec 12:1 ¶ Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;

Mr 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.

Col 1:16 For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:

Rev 10:6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

Snow Again!

Oh, no! Not snow again! Meteorologists are expecting from two to four inches of snow for our area again today. We just went through a week of ice and snow, and now here we go again.

I still cannot get into the office at the church because of the ice, and it looks like I may not be able to get into the office for another day or two. I have not been able to update the church's web site because of this. I need to be at the office in order to update it. All the files are there.

But I can sure study at home, and I can pray at home, and I can call people at home, and I can write e-mails at home and write sermons at home. So I suppose that is what I will do today.
