Present Facts

As the people of God assemble today they must beware of reaching a point where they are merely dwelling on just the present facts. “Such and such” circumstances/factors may be the present facts but they are not the conclusion of the matter. In the Bible, present facts and final conclusions always looked very different from one another. Phil.1:6 — “I am convinced and confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will [continue to] perfect and complete it until the day of Christ Jesus [the time of His return].”


Living With God’s Purpose

ThinkingHandMouthFor 400 yrs. Israel had been in a situation where they knew what to expect every day and at every turn. Their surroundings were so familiar that they had become acceptable. It was predictable and even appeared to be logical but… it wasn’t necessary. We don’t have to learn to live with anything that is not God’s purpose for our lives. (Ps.57:2; 138:7-8; Phil.1:6; 1Thess.5:23-24)
