"MY MESSAGES" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

MY MESSAGES




FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW, AND HAVE ASKED, WHO WRITES THE MESSAGES I POST EVERY MORNING, I WRITE THEM. WHEN I RETIRED YEARS AGO I WAS WONDERING WHAT I COULD DO TO SPREAD THE LOVE OF JESUS AS I HAD DONE WHEN I WAS WORKING AS A TRAVELING SALESMAN. I PRAYED ABOUT IT AND CAME UP WITH THE IDEA OF WRITING A MESSAGE ABOUT THE LOVE OF JESUS AND PUTTING IT ON FACEBOOK. I KNOW THE LORD HAD A HAND IN IT BECAUSE I'M NOT THAT SMART TO COME UP WITH AN IDEA LIKE THAT. SINCE EVERYONE POSTS WHAT THEY WANT TO ON IT, WHY COULDN'T I SHARE JESUS WITH YOU ALL. SO, I STARTED WRITING MY MESSAGE.


WHEN I FIRST WROTE ABOUT THIS I SAID THAT IT IS NOT EASY WRITING A MESSAGE EVERY MORNING BUT I FIND NOW THAT IT REALLY IS. I...

"GIVE AGAPE LOVE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK

Give Agape Love




Matthew 23:12 'And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.'



MATTHEW 23:10-12



In Romans 12:10 we are admonished to desire the welfare of others more than our own; to like others better than ourselves. That is an awesome command that is only obtainable through God's supernatural love. If this very simple, yet very profound truth could be understood and applied, then strife would cease (Prov. 13:10). The world would see Christianity as never before, and we would discover the true joy that comes from serving someone besides ourselves.

There is much confusion today on the subject of love because we have only one English word (love) to describe a broad aspect of...


DON'T WORRY ABOUT MATERIAL THINGS




I WAS READING MATTHEW 6 AND IN VERSES 25 JESUS SAYS NOT TO THINK ABOUT OUR LIVES OR THE THINGS WE NEED TO SURVIVE. (MATTHEW 6:25 Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?)

 

I WONDERED ABOUT THIS BECAUSE HOW COULD WE NOT THINK ABOUT THESE THINGS. JESUS, HIMSELF, THOUGHT ABOUT PAYING HIS TAXES. (MATTHEW 17:27 Not withstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an...

"SEEK GOD'S WISDOM" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-09-23

Seek God's Wisdom




Matthew 23:1 'Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,'



MATTHEW 23:1-9



This rebuke by Jesus to the scribes and Pharisees for their hypocrisy was the harshest treatment that He ever gave to any group. He did this publicly before the multitude, the people the hypocrites most wanted to impress.

Jesus had faced many prior battles with the scribes and Pharisees. On this particular day, the encounter started with the chief priests and elders challenging Jesus' authority. Jesus stunned them by replying with a question that challenged their authority. He then used three parables to illustrate that the leaders of the Jews had rejected the rule of God in their lives, despite their pious religious acts....

"JESUS THE SERVANT" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-09-21

Jesus The Servant




Mark 12:29 'And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord':



MARK 12:28-30



Jesus repeatedly made reference to His deity for which the Jews had sought to kill Him, and yet He quotes from Deuteronomy 6:4, that 'The Lord our God is one Lord.' There are not two or three Gods and yet Jesus claimed to be God just like God the Father. This union is a great mystery that defies human understanding but can be accepted and believed.

Jesus in His pre-existent state was in the form of God. 'In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.' Jesus is God manifested in the flesh (1 Tim. 3:16). However, Jesus did not demand or cling to His...

"THE TWO GREATEST COMMANDMENTS" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-09-20

The Two Greatest Commands




Matthew 22:36 'Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.'



MATTHEW 22:34-46



Jesus revealed that all of the Old Testament laws were designed to instruct us how to love God and love others. Therefore, the two commands that dealt directly with loving God and others (Lev. 19:18 and Dt. 6:5) were the most important.

The religious leaders had become so obsessed with keeping every minor detail of the law that they had lost sight of its ultimate purpose. They neither loved...

"Marriage is For This Life" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-09-19


















Marriage is For This Life




Luke 20:33-34 'Therefore in the resurrection whose wife of them is she? for seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering said unto them, The children of this world marry, and are given in marriage:'



LUKE 20:27-40



It is very doubtful that the situation that the Sadducees were relating ever took place. It is more probable that they were...

Heaven




Mark 12:25 'For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.'




The word heaven comes from the Greek word meaning 'the sky; heaven as the abode of God'; by implication, 'happiness;...

"THE RESURRECTION POWER" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2021-09-17

The Resurrection Power




Matthew 22:23 'The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,'




The Greek word used here for resurrection means 'a standing or rising up.' The resurrection is a major theme of New Testament teaching. Out of the 13 sermons in the book of Acts, 11 stress or simply mention the resurrection.

Man consists of three parts - a spirit, a soul, and a body (1 Th. 5:23). The body is mortal while the spirit and soul are immortal. At death, man's body goes through the decomposition process and returns to its original elements.

At the resurrection, man's departed soul and spirit are called forth from either heaven or hell. The material elements of the body are raised up, reassembled, and united...
