  • Vision and darkness
    An horror of great darkness fell upon him. Genesis 15:12. Whenever God gives a vision to a saint, He puts him, as it were, in the shadow of His hand, and the saint’s duty is to be still and listen. There is a darkness which comes from excess of light, and then is the time […]

This is the view from my office window this morning. It is just beautiful. The picture of the snow and our sins being made whiter than snow. I am also reminded that the blood of Jesus Christ covers and cleanses us from all sin, where the snow only covers the speck of dust it surrounds. ...

What a year 2018 has become already! We have had temperatures from 20 degrees below zero to now 50 degrees above zero and now lows back down below zero all within the first 14 days. Then we have had more sickness throughout the Church family than I have ever seen at one time. But in all this, our Lord hasn’t changed! His power hasn’t changed, His grace hasn’t changed, His accessibility hasn’t changed, His love hasn’t changed, His omniscience hasn’t changed, nor His ever presence. So, as we face this New Year’s challenges, how are we going to face them? The same way we have always faced the challenges that have come to us, BY FAITH! Our Heavenly Father has from the beginning presented us with opportunities to demonstrate His power, His love, and His grace by obeying His word and applying its principles to the situations we face. Though the year may be a New Year, the responsibility is the same. “For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, ‘The just shall live by faith.’” Romans 1:17 This statement is made in 3 other places in the Scripture, two more of which are in the New Testament and once in the Old Testament. That makes four different times our LORD says, “The just shall live by faith.” So, how are we going to face whatever we must face in 2018? FAITH! Faith, requires us to trust our Lord and obey the instructions He has given us in every given situation. Where can God’s instructions be found? In His word, the Bible. Now, herein lies the responsibility for us. This is the “Work” that is required for us to see our Lord’s hand at work in our lives. We must learn His word in order to live His word! I can’t exercise faith in what I don’t know. Therefore, I must find our what God’s word says if I am to know how to respond in a way that will demonstrate God’s power, love, grace, righteousness, or His deliverance. Daniel and the Disciples knew from God’s word that they were to obey God rather than men and that led them to stand in obedience and see God’s deliverance. What opportunities will our Lord provide you and me this year that will enable us to demonstrate His power, love, grace, righteousness, and/or deliverance? DLT ...

Let this year be focused on the brevity of life and the eternality of God! DLT

Only One Life

“Two little lines I heard one day,
Traveling along life’s busy way;
Bringing conviction to my heart,
And from my mind would not depart;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Soon will its fleeting hours be done;
Then, in ‘that day’ my Lord to meet,
And stand before His Judgement seat;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, the still small voice,
Gently pleads for a better choice
Bidding me selfish aims to leave,
And to God’s holy will to cleave;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, a few brief years,
Each with its burdens, hopes, and fears;
Each with its clays I must fulfill,
living for self or in His will;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

When this bright world would tempt me sore,
When Satan would a victory score;
When self would seek to have its way,
Then help me Lord with joy to say;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Give me Father, a purpose deep,
In joy or sorrow Thy word to keep;
Faithful and true what e’er the strife,
Pleasing Thee in my daily life;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Oh, let my love with fervor burn,
And from the world now let me turn;
Living for Thee, and Thee alone,
Bringing Thee pleasure on Thy throne;
Only one life, “twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.

Only one life, yes only one,
Now let me say, “Thy will be done”;
And when at last I’ll hear the call,
I know I’ll say “twas worth it all”;
Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.”

Only one life, ’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.
And when I am dying, how happy I’ll be,
If the lamp of my life has burned out for Thee.”

Charles Thomas (C.T) Studd

This is the 1st Sunday of the year. In light of Matthew 6:33 and Colossians 1:18, what does it mean to give God 1st place in your life? If He is 1st, how does this affect your life? DLT ...

If the word of God is the source of faith (Romans 10:17) and without faith it is impossibe to please God (Hebrews 11:6), then wouldn't it make sense to read, memorize, meditate, and live the word of God? The Book, God's word, also says, "Whatsoever is not of faith is sin..." (Romans 14:23) So, I ask again, doesn't this knowledge cause us to desire to get in God's word for increased faith so that we may live by faith? Just pondering....... DLT ...

If we can stop justifying our sin by the language of the world and start judging our sin by the language of the Word, we have hope. Dr. Jim Binney

Proverbs 13:12 "Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desireth cometh, it is a tree of life."
Psalm 62:5 "My soul, wait thou only upon God: for my expectation is from Him."

We will start this New Year on a Monday and guess what day we will end the coming year? Oh, you are way ahead of me… on a Monday! Now the question is, what are you going to do between those two Mondays? We will have 53 Mondays in 2018, which means we will have 51 Mondays between these two Mondays. So, what can be done for the Lord during these 52 weeks? What can you do as an individual for the Lord during these 52 weeks? What can your family do for our Lord during these 52 weeks? Then, what can we do together as a Church Family during these 52 weeks? For me, it means I have several different situations which involves different groups of people as well as my own personal time and life. With this understanding, I must consider what personal goals and plans do I want to see accomplished for my Lord this year? Because this only involves me, I need to get with the Lord in prayer to consider His will and priorities. Next, it would be a blessing for the head of every household to sit down with their family and discuss their vision for the coming year. Today, consider what you would like to see accomplished through the ministry of VBBC. What would our Lord have us do as a Church family this year? Let’s be in fervent prayer to get our Lord’s mind…..

Wow! How often do we get to start a year off on the Lord’s day and end the same year on the Lord’s day! This is what happened in 2017! This isn’t a blessing that we can enjoy every year, because it happens in a pattern or cycle. It happened 11 years ago, and it will happen again in 2023, six years from now. The next time it happens will be eleven years from 2023 and them again in 2034, after eleven more years. So, it runs 6-11-11-6-11-11-6, and so on. But, be that as it may, it is a blessing to start the year off with our Church Family and finish the year with our Church family. We CAN do this every year by always meeting with the Church on the FIRST Sunday of the year and being faithful throughout the year, so that we end each year by meeting with the Church Family on the last Sunday of the year! Ahhhh, there is a thought every Pastor would readily accept!!! ...

There are many opinions as to when Christ was born. I have read many hypotheses as to how the date of December 25th, became the date set aside as the date of celebration. However, nothing I have read in absolutely conclusive in its evidence. But I do think that as we recognize and remember His resurrection, we should also recognize and remember His birth. Our Lord’s birth is a fulfilment of a Scriptural promise that was given in the garden by our Heavenly Father. Without His birth there would not have been an atoning, sacrificial death and without His atoning, sacrificial death there would not have been a resurrection. Without His atoning sacrificial death and resurrection, there would have been no just means of redeeming mankind. So, I am very thankful for God’s love, mercy, and grace that prompted the promise of a Saviour and its fulfilment in Jesus Christ. The greatest gift ever given was wrapped in swaddling clothes and not placed under a tree, but in a manger and would later be hung on an accursed tree. Only God could love like that! Only God could give like that! Only God could provide Himself and adequate sacrifice to fulfil all righteousness!!!!

Thank you, Lord!!!!
What an all knowing, all powerful, and ever-present God we serve!!!!

Our Lord is more concerned with the condition of your heart than your accomplishments. Out of a right heart will come right accomplishments, but accomplishments out of an unholy heart, a self-serving heart, or a self-promoting heart have their own reward and that very temporal. DLT ...
