Exodus 10-12

The Lord performed two more miraculous signs that were plagues in the land of Egypt; a plague of locust that ate the remaining crops and then darkness over the land for three days. Just as before the Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart and he did not let the people go.

One more miraculous sign, the Passover and Pharaoh under compulsion would let the people go. Both the Passover feast and the feast of unleavened bread were instituted by this sign. Both of these are a type and picture of Jesus Christ and His church.

On the 10th day of the month a perfect lamb (could be a sheep or a goat) was selected out of the herd for each household. The lamb was to live with them for four days. Jesus walked amongst us for approximately 33 years, most of us would consider that to be a young man. At twilight on the evening of the 14th day (the Sabbath begins at twilight) the lamb was sacrificed and its blood was spread on the lintel and door post. Jesus was sacrificed for our sins, His blood must be on your heart and mind. The Lord past over all who had the blood of the lamb on the lintel and door post, the Lord will pass over all who have the blood of Jesus on their heart and mind. They ate the lamb quickly, devouring it, with nothing left over. Christ is to be totally consumed, He is not consumed in part, you cannot be a partial Christian.

The feast of unleavened bread was instituted to remember how the Israelites departed quickly from Egypt. They did not have time to allow the dough to rise. The Christian is to depart from this world and make haste to the door which is faith in Jesus Christ the Lord.

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
