All Pointing to Jesus

Behold Our Shield


In the first chapter of Mathew,  at the very start of the synoptic Gospels we are confronted with 17 verses worth of names.  And it is so easy to skip past these names , and in doing so we would miss out  on forty two generations of Gods marvellous working and also we miss out on seeing how each of these individuals were used by God in order to point towards the coming Messiah.
All these verses are in the Bible for a reason as we have it being in 2 Timothy 3 verse 16 :
“All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,”

Inspirational Bible Verses – Joel 2:25 – God Has Plans to Restore Your Life

Darrell Creswell - A Study of Christian Grace

Joel 2 25 I will restore what the locust has eaten“I will restore to you the years that the locust has eaten.” – Joel 2:25

This is one of the most incredible promises found in scripture. Many times because of past sin and indiscretions we promise to make it all up to God, and we promise to make amends. God tells us here that we have it all wrong. He promises us that he will make up for our destroyed years, all those years of being wasted, stripped, broken  by the enemy.

Memories That Stir – Memorial Day 2010

Loving the Word with the MudPreacher

As Capt John Rasmussen reports, “Iwas in a hurry to get to his physical training exercise. It was raining “cats and dogs”. Traffic was backed up at Fort Campbell, Ky., and was moving way too slowly. I was probably going to be late and I was growing more and more impatient. The pace slowed almost to a standstill as I passed Memorial Grove, the site built to honor the soldiers who died in the Gander airplane crash, the worst redeployment accident in the history of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). Because it was close to Memorial Day, a small American flag had been placed in the ground next to each soldier’s memorial plaque. My concern at the time, however, was getting past the bottleneck, getting out of the rain and getting to PT on time.All of a sudden, infuriatingly, just as the traffic was getting started again, the car in…
