The Dumb Teach

The Dumb Will Teach is a play on a phrase that the dumb will speak… we know that the Bible in the Old Testament taught that when the Messiah would come, certain signs and wonders would accompany that coming. The phrase the dumb speak of course concerns a man without the ability of speech.  He is dumb.  Today the word dumb doesn’t only refer to a person without the ability for speech, it also refers to a person that is unintelligent or that is uneducated etc…  You’ve all heard of the d …

The Lost Generation

Deuteronomy 11:18-21
18Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.  19And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.  20And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of th …

What a Difference Perspective Makes

Joshua 2:23-24
“So the two men returned, and descended from the mountain, and passed over, and came to Joshua the son of Nun, and told him all things that befell them: And they said unto Joshua, Truly the Lord hath delivered into our hands all the land; for even all the inhabitants of the country do faint because of us.”

It seems that today all we can think of and talk about concerning the next generation is that they are worse than the previous. However this is not always the case. These men w …

Remember When

Deuteronomy 24:17-22

Thou shalt not pervert the judgment of the stranger, nor of the fatherless; nor take a widow’s raiment to pledge: But thou shalt remember that thou wast a bondman in Egypt, and the LORD thy God redeemed thee thence: therefore I command thee to do this thing. When thou cuttest down thine harvest in thy field, and hast forgot a sheaf in the field, …

First Gear

I needed you to know where my mindset is.  It matters not where anyone else is, we’re out of the garage my friend!

First gear and more!

When was the last time you were in a car? Most likely it was today or at the very least this week.  Do you recall the feeling as the transmission worked its way up through the gears?  You could feel it, hear it and experience the results of it.  The car continued to accelerate and onward you went on your journey ever more rapidly to the intended goal.

Empty Seats

The following is from a member of our church who has wonderful insight into the inner workings of what we call church.  Please read this with an open heart and maybe let it change how you “do” church!In every service I see empty seats.  But that need not make me miss the filled seats.  A filled seat falls into one of two categories.  It holds someone I either know or don’t know.  I don’t mean someone I recognize or know their name.  Knowing someone means

I’ve taken …

Worship

On next Lord’s Day morning, if the ministers over this land of ours were to ask this question: “How many of you have ever worshiped God?” no doubt virtually every hand would be lifted. Therefore, it would be presumptuous, would it not, for me to say that very few people have actually worshiped God? But there are some Christians who have never really worshiped Him. We feel that is revealed today in the lack of vitality and vigor in our worship. It is a fact that public worship is anemic and …

What’s in a Name

Several years ago now, I had the opportunity to merge the church the Lord had raised up with another church that was in the process of dying.  That church was and is still Landmark Baptist Church.  To prepare my baby church for the transition I preached a message entitled “What’s in a Name”.  This baby church was about to merge with another church and it was going to lose it’s identity as Lighthouse Baptist Church.  To some this was a terrible thing.  This name carried ‘blood, sweat and tea …

The Great Commission

The Great Commission is found in all four Gospel accounts.  In Matthew 28:18-20 there is the most popular and perhaps the most detailed account of the Great Commission, In

Mark 16:15-18 there is a dispensational account, dealing with signs and wonders that would follow true believers, in Luke 24:47-49 the need for repentance is taught as well as the emphasis on tarrying for the power of the Holy Spirit and in John 20:21-23 one should note that the …

Operation Renovation

Acts, Galatians, Romans 12, James, Sermon on the Mount, the Gospels

Operation Renovation…  As I think of the title of my blog I realize that it incorporates many things.

It is the theme of our church for this year.  It has led us to renovate our property to be more suitable for the type of ministry the Lord has called me to.  We are changing our foyer into a gathering place, a lobby where people can sit and talk, where teaching and fellowship can happen.  It …

Traditions

Matthew 15:1-9(KJV) 1Then came to Jesus scribes and Pharisees, which were of Jerusalem, saying,  2Why do thy disciples transgress the tradition of the elders? for they wash not their hands when they eat bread.  3But he answered and said unto them, Why do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition?  4For God commanded, saying, Honour thy father and …
