"HEROD'S FOLLY" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-17

Herod's Folly




Mt. 2:13, '...for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.'



MATTHEW 2:13-15



Herod had ruled over Judaea for nearly forty three years at the time of these events. He had the title of King conferred on him by the Roman senate at the recommendation of Antony and Octavius. His accomplishments included the building of the temple in Jerusalem which was one of the most magnificent structures in the world. Most people would have thought that Herod had it 'made'.

However, history reveals that Herod was extremely paranoid. He actually killed his wife and one of his sons because he feared they would take the kingdom from him. All his power and fame couldn't buy him the peace that the angels proclaimed (Lk. 2:8-14). His paranoia led him to kill the innocent children in Bethlehem. His insecurity was evident. He had everything and yet he had nothing.

In contrast, the King that Herod was trying to dispose of came humbly, not exalting Himself. He gained the acclaim of others by serving them, not oppressing them. The scepter of Jesus was righteousness; not tyranny. Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice; Himself, because of His great love for people.

Today, Herod's only claim to fame is that he was the man who tried in vain to kill the King of Kings. Remember, it is worth nothing if you gain the whole world and lose your own soul (Mt. 16:26). Make today count for God.


"YOU CAN TRUST GOD'S WORD" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-17
YOU CAN TRUST GOD'S WORD

 

WHEN YOU ARE IN CHURCH LISTENING TO THE PREACHER OR TEACHER, OR LISTENING TO A MINISTER ON THE RADIO OR TV, ARE YOU REALLY LISTENING TO LEARN ABOUT GOD OR ARE YOU TRYING TO FIND SOME FAULT IN WHAT THEY ARE SAYING?  I KNOW PEOPLE WHO DO THIS.  I KNOW WE ARE SUPPOSED TO SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES TO MAKE SURE THAT WHAT WE ARE BEING TAUGHT LINES UP WITH GOD'S WORD, HOWEVER, I BELIEVE IT IS WRONG TO JUST TRY TO FIND FAULT WITH A TEACHING WITHOUT FIRST CHECKING IT OUT.  

 

THERE ARE FALSE TEACHERS OUT THERE AND WE HAVE TO BE CAREFUL, BUT DON'T DISMISS SOMEONE JUST BECAUSE HE GETS THE NUMBER OF A VERSE OF SCRIPTURE WRONG.  WE ALL MAKE MISTAKES SOMETIMES.  I HAVE HEARD OF SOMEONE WHO WAS OPENLY CRITICIZED BECAUSE THEY GOT THE NUMBER OF A VERSE WRONG.  I DON'T BELIEVE THIS WAS WHAT THE BIBLE MEANT WHEN IT SAID WE ARE SUPPOSE TO BE CAREFUL OF FALSE TEACHERS.  I HAVE GONE BACK OVER SOME OF MY MESSAGES FROM SEVEN YEARS AGO AND FOUND MISTAKES THAT I HAD MADE ON VERSE NUMBERS.


IF I EVER WRITE SOMETHING YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH AND YOU CAN'T FIND THAT IT LINES UP WITH GOD'S WORD, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.  I NEVER WANT TO WRITE ANYTHING WITHOUT BACKING IT UP WITH  SCRIPTURE.  AND, IF I MAKE A MISTAKE ON THE NUMBER OF A VERSE, PLEASE FORGIVE ME BECAUSE IN NO WAY WAS I TRYING TO GO AGAINST GOD'S WORD.  I LOVE THE WORD AND BELIEVE EVERY PART OF IT WITH ALL MY HEART BECAUSE IT IS INSPIRED BY HOLY SPIRIT.  I KNOW MEN WROTE IT BUT HOLY SPIRIT TOLD THEM WHAT TO WRITE.  I LEAVE YOU WITH 2ND TIMOTHY 3:16-17 WHERE IT SAYS "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works."  SHARE THE WORD WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW TO LET THEM KNOW HOW MUCH GOD LOVES US. 


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"AGREEING TOGETHER" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-16
AGREEING TOGETHER

 

IN PRAYING THIS MORNING FOR OUR CHILDREN  IN THE ARMED FORCES, THE VERSE MATTHEW 18:19 CAME TO MIND WHERE JESUS SAYS  "Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven."  

 

I HAVE MENTIONED THIS BEFORE IN TALKING ABOUT GETTING A PRAYER PARTNER TO PRAY WITH EVERY DAY.  IT CAN BE YOUR SPOUSE, A RELATIVE OR A FRIEND. YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE TOGETHER TO DO THIS.  IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE YOU CAN CALL ON THE PHONE, EVEN IN ANOTHER STATE, THAT WILL WORK. THE MAIN THING IS AGREEING ON WHAT YOU ARE PRAYING FOR.  

 

THIS OLD WORLD IS GETTING WORSE EVERY DAY AND OUR KIDS CAN BE CALLED ON TO GO TO MANY BAD PLACES.  THEY REALLY NEED OUR HELP.  

 

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS DOING WHAT HE CAN TO HELP, BUT SINCE HE HAS SO MUCH OPPOSITION HE NEEDS OUR PRAYERS.  WE CHRISTIANS REALLY NEED TO STAND TOGETHER IN PRAYER FOR HIM.  LET'S ALL AGREE THAT HOLY SPIRIT WILL SHOW HIS OPPOSITION HOW MUCH THEY NEED TO SUPPORT HIM AND IN TURN, THIS WILL HELP OUR KIDS.  THIS IS THE LEAST HIS OPPOSITION CAN DO SINCE OUR MILITARY IS RISKING THEIR LIVES FOR THEIR  PROTECTION.  


 

I AM ASKING ALL OF YOU CHRISTIANS READING THIS TO AGREE WITH ME, AND EACH OTHER, THAT GOD WILL KEEP ALL OF OUR CHILDREN  SAFE.  

 

WE ALSO NEED TO PRAY FOR ALL THE CHRISTIANS AROUND THE WORLD THAT ARE BEING PERSECUTED AND AGREE THAT THEY WILL ALSO BE SAFE.   

 

IF YOU WILL PRAY EACH MORNING AND AGREE WITH ME, WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  WE HAVE JESUS ON OUR SIDE AND HE IS THE ONE TELLING US TO DO THIS.  WILL YOU AGREE?  

 

GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"BELIEVE THE WORD" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-16

Believe The Word




Matthew 2:1, 'Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.'



MATTHEW 2:1-12



How could this be? The greatest event in the history of God's dealings with mankind was taking place and the leaders of God's people didn't even know about it. Foreigners who were unfamiliar with the covenants of God perceived what God was doing more than His own chosen people! (Eph. 2:12)

The apparent answer to this is that these Persian wise men were more in tune to the prophecies of scripture than the Jews were. Daniel had been promoted to be the head of all the wise men of Babylon (Dan. 2:48). While in Babylon, Daniel had come through the lions' den victoriously and had no doubt gained the reputation as the greatest wise man of all (Dan. 6).

It was during this time that Daniel wrote the prophecy of Dan. 9:24-27, which pinpointed the time of the Messiah's birth. This no doubt provided the inspiration for these wise men. The star simply served as a sign that the prophesied event had come and directed them towards where the king was born.

The Jews had these same prophecies. They just weren't waiting in anticipation for the birth of the Messiah. The Word of God only profits us if we believe it (Heb. 4:2). Let's not make the same mistake. Mix the truths that you know from God's Word with faith.




YOU ARE HEALED, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, SO ACCEPT IT

 

I KNOW SOME OF YOU HAVE READ THIS MESSAGE BECAUSE I WROTE IT A WHILE BACK BUT IT POPPED UP ON MY MEMORY WALL AND I FELT THE LORD WAS TELLING ME TO POST IT AGAIN.....SO HERE IT IS. 

 

THERE IS SOMEONE NEW READING THIS THAT NEEDS TO ACCEPT THEIR HEALING.  YOU ARE BORN-AGAIN BUT HAVE NEVER REALLY STUDIED WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT HEALING.  YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS.  YOU BELIEVE THAT GOD HEALS SOME PEOPLE AND YOU KNOW HE CAN DO ALL THINGS BUT YOU ARE NOT YET CONVINCED THAT HE WILL DO THIS FOR YOU.  YOU HAVE GOT TO CHANGE YOUR THINKING.  THIS COULD BE A MATTER OF LIFE OR DEATH.


I KNOW YOU DO NOT BELIEVE THAT GOD PUT THIS SICKNESS ON YOU TO TEACH YOU SOMETHING OR TO MAKE YOU A BETTER WITNESS.  SOME PEOPLE BELIEVE THAT WAY.  A FATHER WOULD NOT DO THIS TO ONE OF HIS CHILDREN AND DO THEY THINK THAT GOD, WHO IS LOVE, WOULD EVER PUT A SICKNESS ON ONE OF HIS OWN?   NEVER, NEVER, NEVER.



YOU BELIEVE IT WHEN THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS DIED FOR YOUR SINS, THAT HE ROSE FROM THE DEAD AND THAT HE ASCENDED INTO HEAVEN AND IS SEATED AT THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD.  I KNOW YOU BELIEVE THIS SO WHY IS IT SO HARD TO BELIEVE IT WHEN THE BIBLE ALSO SAYS THAT BY THE STRIPES OF JESUS YOU WERE HEALED.  (1ST PETER 2:24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.)  HE HAS ALREADY DONE IT FOR YOU.  BOTH SALVATION AND HEALING WERE IN THE ATONEMENT.  (ROMANS 5:8-11 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.  Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.  For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.  And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.


LIKE I SAID AT THE BEGINNING OF THIS MESSAGE, MANY OF YOU HAVE READ THIS BEFORE BUT THIS IS ALSO FOR YOU WHO HAVEN'T READ IT.  PEOPLE ARE DYING THAT DON'T REALLY HAVE TO.  WHAT THEY NEED TO DO IS BELIEVE THIS AND ACT ON IT.   IF SOMEONE GAVE YOU A MILLION DOLLARS AND YOU DIDN'T TAKE IT, IT CERTAINLY WOULDN'T DO YOU ANY GOOD ALTHOUGH IT WOULD BE YOURS.  THE WAY YOU GET YOUR HEALING IS THROUGH YOUR FAITH AND BELIEVING THAT JESUS DID THIS FOR YOU AND THAT NO MATTER WHAT THE DOCTORS SAY OR EVEN YOUR OWN BODY, YOU KNOW YOU ARE HEALED.  ONE THING THOUGH, DON'T EVER STOP SEEING YOUR DOCTOR OR TAKING YOUR MEDICATIONS UNTIL YOU KNOW, WITHOUT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT,THAT YOU ARE HEALED.  HOLY SPIRIT WILL LET YOU KNOW IF YOU JUST ASK HIM AND BELIEVE.



MARK 16:17-18 SAY THAT THESE SIGNS SHALL FOLLOW THEM THAT BELIEVE, IN JESUS' NAME THEY SHALL LAY HANDS ON THE SICK AND THEY SHALL RECOVER.  THIS IS TRUE.  IF YOU HAVE ALREADY HAD AN OPERATION AND YOU ARE STANDING ON THIS VERSE, THAT IS GREAT.  IN HEALING, RECOVER MEANS TO REGAIN STRENGTH OR RESTORE FROM SICKNESS.  SO, IF YOU HAVE HAD SOMEONE LAY HANDS ON YOU, THEN BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE HEALED AND RECOVERING. 


THE BIBLE SAYS "THEY SHALL" RECOVER.  IT MIGHT TAKE MORE THAN AN HOUR OR A DAY BUT IF YOU TRULY BELIEVE, IT WILL HAPPEN.   JUST START THANKING GOD FOR YOUR TOTAL HEALING RIGHT NOW.   IF YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE HEALED, WHY WOULD YOU NOT THANK HIM FOR IT.   IF SOMEONE ASKS HOW YOU ARE, YOU HAVE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO TELL THEM HOW JESUS HEALED YOU.  TURN THIS THING THAT THE DEVIL DID TO YOU INTO SOMETHING GOOD FOR GOD.  DON'T LET THE DEVIL WIN.  JUST CLAIM PHILIPPIANS 4:13 WHERE IT SAYS "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me."   HE IS STRENGTHENING YOU RIGHT NOW.  RECEIVE IT!!!  


SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT IT IS LYING TO SAY THAT YOU ARE HEALED WHEN IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE YOU ARE BUT LOOK WHAT GOD DID WHEN HE TOLD ABRAHAM HE HAS MADE HIM A FATHER OF MANY NATIONS.  (ROMANS 4:17 (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.)   GOD DOES NOT LIE.  


SO CLAIM YOUR HEALING AND THANK JESUS EVERY DAY FOR IT.  HE LOVES YOU AND WANTS THE BEST FOR YOU AND SUFFERED THOSE SICKNESSES SO YOU WOULD NOT HAVE TO.  I AM PRAYING FOR YOU.



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.

"GOD'S CHOICE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-15

God's Choice




Luke 2:37, 'And she [was] a widow of about fourscore and four years, which departed not from the temple, but served [God] with fastings and prayers night and day.'



LUKE 2:36-40



Let's suppose that Anna was fourteen years old when she married. She would have been 105 years old. Yet she was still fasting and praying night and day! Satan tries to convince us that God won't use us. He may cite things like age or lack of abilities, or failures that we've had. But just like Anna, there are many scriptural examples of the Lord using those who would be considered unusable by worldly standards.

Moses was eighty years old before he began to fulfill God's plan for his life and he worked right up until he was 120 years old. Abraham was in his nineties before he had the son that God had promised him.

Gideon was another one who looked unusable. He was hiding from the Midianites when an angel of God appeared and told him he was a mighty man of valor (Judg. 6:11-12). He couldn't believe it at first and had to have the Lord confirm it three times.

Truly, ...God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty... (1 Cor. 1:27-28).

If you feel foolish or weak, then you qualify. Let the Lord use you today.


"WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-14

WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?




WHEN PEOPLE TALK ABOUT THE GOSPEL, DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT?  MOST PEOPLE KNOW THAT THE "GOSPELS", PLURAL, ARE THE FIRST FOUR BOOKS OF THE NEW TESTAMENT, MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE AND JOHN.  THESE ARE CALLED THE "GOSPELS". 




NOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT WHEN THEY SAY "THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST"?  PAUL TELLS US IN 1ST CORINTHIANS 15:3-4  "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"  TO BE BORN AGAIN OR SAVED, THIS IS WHAT YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE, REPENT OF YOUR SINS, ASK JESUS TO BE YOUR SAVIOR AND BE BAPTIZED.  




LOOK AT A FEW PASSAGES:  (LUKE 8:12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.).....(ACTS 16:29-31 Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas, And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved? And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christand thou shalt be saved, and thy house.)  PAUL EVEN TOLD THE JAILER THAT ALL THE ONES IN HIS HOUSE COULD ALSO BE SAVED IF THEY BELIEVED.).....(ROMANS 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.).....AND THE LAST ONE.....(MARK 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.)  





NOW, IF ANY OF YOU CHRISTIANS HAVE ANY PROBLEMS LEADING SOMEONE TO JESUS, USE THESE PASSAGES.  AND, TO YOU THAT ARE NOT YET BORN AGAIN (SAVED), THIS IS ALL YOU HAVE TO DO.  THE MOST IMPORTANT THING IS TO HAVE FAITH TO TRULY BELIEVE ALL OF THIS AND RECEIVE IT.





IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS BELIEVING, GET A BIBLE AND JUST READ MATTHEW, MARK, LUKE AND JOHN.  THESE FOUR BOOKS TELL OF THE LIFE OF JESUS AND ALL THAT HE DID AND IT WILL BUILD YOUR FAITH AS IT IS SAID IN THE SCRIPTURES.  (ROMAN 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.)  YOU WILL SEE THE LOVE HE SHOWED BY HEALING THE PEOPLE AND FORGIVING THEIR SINS.  THE BIBLE IS GOD'S WORD, A REAL BOOK WITH REAL HISTORY.  AFTER YOU READ IT YOU WILL KNOW MORE ABOUT JESUS.  TALK TO HIM AND TELL HIM YOU BELIEVE AND WANT HIM IN YOUR LIFE.  THANK HIM FOR HIS FORGIVENESS AND ACCEPT THE GIFT OF SALVATION.  YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT. 




GOD BLESS YOU ALL.





"REVELATION KNOWLEDGE" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-14

Revelation Knowledge




Luke 2:26, 'And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.'



LUKE 2:25-35



Simeon didn't receive this knowledge through the normal method of learning. This knowledge was revealed to him directly from the Holy Spirit. This revelation knowledge which comes only from God is distinctly different than knowledge acquired through study. Man's knowledge is based on observation. It cannot give perfect instruction about the future. God's knowledge can. Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit we can know things to come (Jn. 16:13).

When dealing with God, revelation knowledge is essential. The Lord's ways are not always our ways (Isa. 55:8). A fear of trusting the intuitive knowledge that God gives us will cause us to miss many blessings of God.

If he hadn't received it and anticipated its fulfillment, what a blessing he would have missed! He would not have been led into the temple at exactly the right moment to see the salvation of the Lord.

We need to ask for and expect to receive revelation knowledge from the Lord. God desires to impart it more than we desire to receive it. Great blessings await those who will not depend solely on their own understanding (Prov. 3:5).


"GOD LOOKS FOR AVAILABILITY" BY ANDREW WOMMACK


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-13

God Looks For Availability




Luke 2:24, 'And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.'



LUKE 2:21-24



The Old Testament passage being quoted is from Lev. 12:6-8. There the Lord commanded a lamb and a young pigeon or a turtledove as the prescribed sacrifice. If the woman was unable to offer a lamb, then two young pigeons or two turtledoves were acceptable. Mary would not have offered the lesser offering if it had been in her power to provide the lamb.

This reveals that Joseph and Mary were not well off financially, yet the Lord chose them to be the earthly parents of His only begotten Son.

The Lord doesn't choose the way man chooses. Man looks on the outward appearance but God looks on the heart (1 Sam. 16:7).

Mary and Joseph were chosen when they were without: without fame, without position, without money. God entrusted the most precious gift He had to a couple who would surely have been overlooked if men had been conducting the search.

God isn't looking for ability, but rather availability. D. L. Moody once heard a preacher say, 'The world has never seen what God can do with one man who is totally yielded to Him.' In response, D. L. said, 'By the grace of God, I'll be that man.' This uneducated man went on to shake three continents for God.

God will choose you too, if you'll make yourself available to Him (1 Cor. 1:26-28).


"ARE YOU STRESSED?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN


By DAVID A. MCMILLEN, 2020-01-13

ARE YOU STRESSED?





STRESS CAN COME IN MANY FORMS, SOME WORSE THAN OTHERS.  YOU MIGHT THINK IT IS STRESSFUL WHEN YOU ARE LATE GETTING TO A PARTY OR THE TRAFFIC IS BAD AND YOU ARE RUNNING LATE FOR WORK.   WHAT IF YOU HAVE LOST YOUR JOB AND YOU HAVE NO MONEY FOR RENT OR TO BUY FOOD FOR THE KIDS?   THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE IN THE STRESS LEVELS, RIGHT?




IT CAN GET UGLY BUT, PRAISE GOD, WE HAVE A WAY OUT.   MATTHEW 11:28-30 SAYS "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light."  AND 1ST PETER 5:6-7 SAYS "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:  Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you."    




WE CAN CAST ALL OUR CARE UPON JESUS.  DOESN'T THAT SOUND BETTER THAN TRYING TO HANDLE THINGS BY YOURSELVES?  JUST ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT GOD IS LOVE AND HE LOVES US AND WANTS THE BEST FOR US.  WE JUST HAVE TO LET HIM DO IT.  WANT YOU JUST TRY IT AND DO AWAY WITH THAT STRESS?  IF YOU PUT IT ALL ON JESUS, THEN YOU HAVE TO HAVE FAITH THAT HE WILL TAKE CARE OF IT.  AND, DON'T TRY TO HELP....I AM SURE HE CAN GET THE JOB DONE.  JUST TRUST HIM.  



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
