Thinking About NVCC 2/12/2017

When Adam sinned he broke his fellowship with God for himself and his descendants. The first family was cast out of fellowship with God, and “Cherubim and a flaming sword guarded their way back” (Gen 3:24). Since then man has groped in the darkness after God. The ministry of Jesus has opened the spiritual world again to man. He has given us a way back into fellowship with God.

Yes, Jesus has opened the spiritual world again to man, but we still have sorrow, but not as those who have no hope. Because of Jesus we laugh at the terror of the tomb, for we know, “Absent from the body, present with the Lord,” (Paraphrased 2Cor 5:8).We know that when Christ appears again, those who we cry for, because they are gone, will appear with Him in glory. G. Campbell Morgan put it this way, “He has not killed the capacity for sorrow; but he has gilded the teardrop with His smile.” If we follow this king we no longer stumble in darkness, for we are now citizen of his kingdom that is to come. “When the end comes, the followers of this Christ, this king, will look into the face of the rider upon the pale horse, and hail as friend rather than foe,” (Ibid)

This king’s kingdom is over all things that are material, mental, moral, and spiritual, and for that we rejoice, we wait with great expectation, and say in all circumstances of our life, “Your will be done O Lord!”

Amen,

Kirby

Thinking About NVCC 3/29/2015

I read the following saying this week, “A painted fire throws off no heat.” It caused me to think, for it accurately describes the perilous state of today’s Christian. What is a painted fire? A painted fire is: Ethics without enthusiasm, principles without passion, and desires without denial of wrong; all these are painted fires throwing off no heat.

Our land, our families, our churches are filled with painted fires; those who attend the right church, sing the hip hymns, and don’t speak his name in vain, but find the whole thing boring and lame. There is no passion, no heat, no flame, for they have come so far and see it all as no gain.

The Christian today has no fire, no force, no light, and no song in their heart; they have become just painted flames. A poem by G. Campbell Morgan’s accurately states what the Christian has become, “Faultily faultless, icily regular, splendidly null.”

Acquire the fire,

Kirby
