God is Good

God is Good
Video: http://www.getthegist.net/
Romans 8:28…… And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
I am amazed and blessed by how good God is. I am grateful to God for all that I have; my health, my family and my life. I am alive because of the goodness of God. Hallelujah.
This week’s Gist shares the same title as the first lesson of the first module in our online discipleship course called GlobalTFL. You can sample the ‘God is Good’ Teaching Note from the GlobalTFL website by following this link: http://www.globaltfl.com/free-note.html Please take a look and tell us what you think.
The course teaching is much more comprehensive than the Gist. The full Training for Life (TFL) curriculum is aimed to take the student into a profound revelation of God’s word in order to raise-up Christians who are alive and active in the 21st century church. The Gist is an appetizer and TFL is the main course.
Now, back to the subject for this Gist…… Everything that is good has God in it.
The word G-o-o-d has G-o-d in it. The word G-o-d is not in s-i-c-k nor is it in b-a-d. Amen?
It is God who puts a spring in our step and a song in our heart. It is God who causes us to rejoice in the sunshine and in the rain. It is God who has enabled us to help each other. It is God who works all things together for good because God is good all the time.
Thank you Jesus, you have given us life for ever more. Amen.

Get Ready

Get Ready
Video: http://thegist.weebly.com/
Matthew 3:3….. This is he who was spoken of through the prophet Isaiah: "A voice of one calling in the desert, 'Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.' "
We can never say this too often; “the time is short and Jesus Christ is coming back soon”. There have appeared a fresh outpouring of End Time products, everything from movies, TV programmes, books and radio broadcasts. They are flooding into not only Christian but secular outlets. It seems that everybody is aware of the turbulent acceleration of catastrophic events pointing the way to an inevitable conclusion.
Now, more than ever, we need to appropriate the same spirit that raised-up John the Baptist to prepare the way for the arrival of Jesus. For John it was to herald the first coming of Jesus but for the new generation of prophetic proclaimers it is for His second coming.
People from all walks of life and all faiths are looking for answers; explanations for the out-of-control instability for our deranged planet and equally the lawless, sordid and unrestrained expressions of man’s inhumanity to man.
Now is the time for Holy Spirit fuelled Christians to cry out with one voice, “repent and get ready, Jesus is on His way back”. This is no time for apathetic excuses or well-informed discussions. It is a time for action.
Politicians have let us down, the banks have let us down and religion has let us down. It is time for a Christian Revival, it is time to wake up the dead church and bring back numbed and dumbed Christians to life. It is time for a Resuscitation Revolution; a spiritual defibrillation. Are we too focussed on 666 when we should be calling 999 – this is an emergency….
Listen, can you hear the sound of Jesus approaching? Get ready!
Lord Jesus, thank you for the wake-up call. Amen

The Heavenlies

The Heavenlies
Video: http://thegist.weebly.com/
Hebrews 13:2…… Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by so doing some people have entertained angels without knowing it.
Last week we talked about ministering angels. This week I want to talk about the activity that takes place in an unseen realm around us and in the heavenlies above us often without us knowing anything about it. A lot of what does not happen to us is a result of this unseen angelic activity.
When we started to pioneer the church in Drumchapel, Glasgow we stirred-up a hornet’s nest in the heavenly realms. The local youths threw petrol bombs at the church building, they stole our cars and they set them on fire. We know that our battle is not against people but against spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12) so, we prayed.
Initially, the situation got worse until, one night, something happened in the worship. It was as though the musicians had improved dramatically and the quality of the sound system was excellent. There was an element to the worship that we had never heard before. On reflection, we are all convinced that angels had joined in.
Before the end of the worship, a woman with five children burst through the door of the sanctuary. “I had to come, I had to follow the light!”
Apparently, from some considerable distance, she had seen a light in the sky and she had followed it. It led her to us where the light shone directly above our building. We believe that angels had led this lady, with her children, to what for her became a haven of peace.
We also believe that on that very night there was a spiritual bi-election and Jesus was voted into the seat of government. The enemy was ousted-out and Jesus took up His rightful place of authority as governor of the area.
Soon the local people began to get saved and become active in the church. Dramatic changes took place in many lives over the next eight years. The whole community was miraculously transformed.
Without a doubt, from that eventful night of worship, many angels came and went. Some came to assist us and others came to our rescue. Most of the time we did not see them, they mingled with the others, to us they were benevolent strangers.
Lord Jesus, thank you for helping us in ways we don’t even know. Amen.

Angels

Angels
Video: http://thegist.weebly.com/
Hebrews 1:14 …… Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
With our minds still full of images of nativity angels and the Christmas card angels fluttering away for another year, it is as good a time as any to ask the question; are angels still around today?
Personally, I have heard some fantastic accounts of angelic visitations from people that I know and trust. However, my encounters with angels have been, on the most part, less flamboyant but none the less overwhelming.
The accompanying video with this Gist tells the story of a snow angel. Rather than repeat it I will tell you of another occasion, this time with an invisible angel.
Again, it was winter-time and I was rushing to catch a plane. After driving for fifteen minutes or so, my road was blocked by a fallen tree. The police told me to take another route but it was many miles of a diversion. I was going to be cutting it fine to reach the airport on time.
In my haste, I took a bend too quickly and the front near-side of my car hit a crash barrier. I felt the thud and I heard the sound of the headlight breaking. Despondent, I thought, “that is enough! Clearly I am not destined to go on this trip”.
I reversed into a small lane to turn around and go home but decided to inspect the damage to my car. When I looked there was no damage at all.
Immediately I knew that an angel had buffered my crash and God had mended the damage. I knew that it was the devil who was trying to stop me and I now knew that God was on my side.
I decided to carry on even although I was well delayed by all these shenanigans, or so I thought…..
If there had been no delays, it would have taken me an hour to reach the airport. Now, with the addition of another 20 miles detour plus stoppage time, well you can do the maths. When I reached the airport I looked at my watch and it was one hour since I had left home. My detour and delays had not added any extra time.
Are angels still around today? You bet they are!
Lord Jesus, thank you for despatching angels to look after us. Amen.

Redemption

Redemption
Video: http://thegist.weebly.com/
Ephesians 1:7 ……. In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace…
Praise God that those of us who know Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Saviour can enter into this New Year with a clean slate. The blood of Jesus has bought us back from sin and death and we have been redeemed by the grace of God.
The wonderful, good news is that anyone who repents, asks for forgiveness and turns away from their sinful, selfish ways will be forgiven and restored into a living relationship with God our Father, through Jesus His Son in the power of the Holy Spirit.
What a great start to the New Year. What a great start to a whole new life.
All of us want to change in some way, many of us make New Year’s Resolutions and almost all of us break those resolutions before the end of January. We need help to change and God Almighty has made a way. The blood of Jesus can purify us from all unrighteousness. When we meet Jesus at Calvary, He washes us clean, we are born again and we have a completely new start in life.
The Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness and we become progressively stronger as we resolve to follow Jesus.
Even if we sin, there is a way of restoration outlined in 1 John 1:9.
God wants us to succeed, He wants us to be victorious, to be overcomers, to be more than conquerors.
If you are reading this and you are not a Christian, you can become a Christian today. You will be born again as a brand new creation in Christ. If you have strayed away from Jesus you can choose to get back on course by asking His forgiveness. God loves prodigals.
One way or another, today can be the day of a fresh start for you, a completely new beginning in the grace of God.
Lord Jesus, thank you for your blood that still flows from the cross at Calvary. Amen
