I’d just like to share what is written in God’s Word, regarding ‘giving’ (or giving alms). Do you give alms? An alm is a charitable donation, according to my dictionary in my computer. I’m just sharing this because I came across it today, and thought it might be good for us to see, because everyone in Blanco gives to charities.

Read Galatians 1:1-5. Verse 4 in particular says, “Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father.” Over the past couple of weeks we have looked at different fundamental roles of Jesus. Jesus our Intercessor and Jesus our Sacrifice.

The prophet Isaiah in about 700 BC said “It is He who sits above the vault (circle) of the earth” (Isaiah 40:22). The earth is of course not a perfect circle but the Hebrew word translated circle means circle, round, or sphere. It seems that in some ancient cultures, Babylonian, Egyptian, and China, there was a belief in a flat earth.

Astronomers and mathematicians of centuries past have attempted to calculate the number of stars in the heavens. Hipparchus, a Grecian (190-120 BC), gave the number of stars as 1,026. Ptolemy of Egypt (85-165 AD) suggested 1,056 stars. Kepler, a German (1571-1630), after which the Kepler satellite is named, gave the number as 1,006 stars.

Ephesians 5:2 says, “And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor.” Two weeks ago we talked about the wonderful fact that Jesus is our intercessor. He stands in the gap for us as Christians.

What makes us think we are not included in the blessings and curses found in God’s Word? I’ve heard preachers say what God said in the Old Testament does not apply to us living now, since Christ came and died for our sins. I have to disagree. That just can’t be, because in the Old Testament we see how God sent His Word to the prophets to prophecy Jesus would come, and He did.

“Many do not resist Satan for fear that it may be the reproof of the Holy Spirit. They cannot distinguish between satanic accusation and the reproach of the Holy Spirit. Hence, they accept Satan’s accusation as a reproach of the Holy Spirit. How can one tell the difference? Accusation from Satan is never clear and sharp; whereas revelation from God through the Spirit is always distinct and to the point.” - Watchman Nee. James tells us to resist the devil, and he will flee from us.

It’s so important for us to have a continual communication with our Lord God, because He is our ‘All In All.” He wants to be our best friend, and is always willing to give us His wisdom; all we have to do is ask! James 1:5-8 “5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Paul wrote to Timothy that he might know how to “conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth” (I Timothy 3:15). This is a spiritual house which is the body of Christ, the church. As is the case with all houses, this house has an architect.

I encourage you to read Isaiah 59:9-16. Verse 16 says, “And he saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him.” God has always sought for an intercessor. An intercessor stands in the gap; he makes up the breach; he is a mediator; an advocate; a defense attorney.

God created perfect foods for us to eat and most people are not eating enough of them. New discoveries are being made about the healing benefits of fruits, vegetables and grains, yet many people will never know, because they just don’t read that stuff. They’ll Google information on their hobbies, but not good health & nutrition. It’s not the devil that causes sickness and disease!

Sir Isaac Newton formulated the laws of gravitation and motion, and his achievements in science are very well known, but it is not so well known that he spent more time studying the Bible than studying the stars. He said, “There are more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history.

Read Romans 8:28-39. Verse 39 says, “Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Thus far we have covered: 1.God’s love is the greatest thing in the world. It is towards us and in us (Rom 5:5).

Isaiah 58:1-14 – 1“Shout with the voice of a trumpet blast. 
 Shout aloud! Don’t be timid.
 Tell my people Israel of their sins! 2 Yet they act so pious!
 They come to the Temple every day
 and seem delighted to learn all about me. 
They act like a righteous nation
 that would never abandon the laws of its God.
 They ask me to take action on their behalf,
 pretending they want to be near me. 3 ‘We have fasted before you!’ they say.
 ‘Why aren’t you impressed?
