By John Miltenberger 3/31/2017 1 Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? 2 The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the LORD and against His Anointed, [saying], 3 “Let us break Their bonds in pieces And cast away Their cords from us.” 4 He who sits in the heavens shall laugh; The Lord shall hold them in derision. 5 Then He shall speak …

By John Miltenberger 3/30/2017 But whatever things were gain to me, those things I have counted as loss for the sake of Christ. More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ, [Philippians 3:7-8; NASB] Here is the statement of a …

By John Miltenberger 3/28/2017 For the last month or so, I’ve felt pressed to focus my prayers on the United States, as the spiritual battle, contrary to many, was not finished with the last presidential election, but in fact it only opened the door to the real conflict. The election opened a window for the people of God, a window of time and opportunity, a firm place to pray and fight from, solid ground. That …

By John Miltenberger 3/23/2017 For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.

By John Miltenberger 3/21/2017 “Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you.” [Isaiah 42:9; NASB] I think it was in 2015 that the word came to my wife and I, “Downsize.” Up to that time, we had been living a fairly average life while accumulating many things. The closets were full of clothing we just might need in the future, if …

By John Miltenberger 3/16/2017 For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time – to show us His grace through Christ Jesus. [2 Timothy 1:9; NLT] Today I feel a deep sense of melancholy. By definition, the word means a ‘pensive sense of sadness; typically with no obvious cause..’ We all have …

By John Miltenberger 3/11/2017 He sent out his word and healed them, snatching them from the door of death. [Psalm 107:20; NLT] We humans like quick fixes. That’s just the way we are. That’s why there is so much money to be made with pharmaceuticals. The proliferation of diet pills in our day is mute testimony to our penchant for quick fixes, as opposed to processes. The problem, is that in God’s Kingdom, as we …

He must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must be able to teach. He must not be a heavy drinker or be violent. He must be gentle, not quarrelsome, and not love money. He must manage his own family …
