Watchman Daily Devotional: God Has Shown Us Over and Over That He Is Faithful, One Little Test Comes Along and We Ask if He Is Really With Us or Not

King James Version And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not? Once more, the people became upset due to the lack of water. Once more, Moses was held responsible. They had not absorbed the final teaching from the miracle of daily provision. The provider of our needs is the Lord. This time, a new element was added to the situation. They inquired about the presence of the God among them. They witnessed and encountered the remarkable events that occurred in Egypt – from crossing the sea to witnessing water changing, experiencing fear, and receiving bread in the wilderness. After witnessing the glory of the LORD in the guiding cloud, they now question whether God…

THE ‘HOW TO’ AND ‘HOW NOT TO’ OF THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION!- 2Cor.5:19

By Edward O’Hara, Adam was only flesh when he was made. Even with the knowledge of good and evil he was still only flesh. This is why God wouldn’t allow him to continue to eat from the tree of life to live forever. Because…. “Flesh and blood can not inherit the kingdom of God”. 1Cor.15:56 Adam was an earth suit. A living soul that was only equipped to live here on earth. Made of flesh alone and without spirit. But, because God ultimately wants man in heaven with Him. And heaven is a spiritual kingdom. This is why Adam was placed in circumstances where he was to most likely eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. This would give to him free will and dominion, in a place surrounded by choices he was not yet fully…

EDWARD O’HARA: FREE WILL… BECAUSE REAL LOVE IS A CHOICE WITH THIS IN MIND

To begin I would like to list a few things we know about Adam from what the word of God says. And afterward show what these mean in regard to the question asked by those at Rome who Paul wrote to. Is God the author of sin for grace to abound? Or the author of free will? 1. Contrary to popular belief Paul said Adam was not a spiritual being when God made him. He was natural. 1Cor.15:45-48.  2. Paul also says that the natural man can not perceive the things of the Spirit of God. 1Cor.2:14.  3. God said he had no knowledge of good and evil until after he ate the fruit. Gen.3:22.  4. And again contrary to popular belief Paul said there was no law in the garden. Rom.5:13. 5. His sin was not imputed to him…

[2] CHOKED AND FRUITLESS OR HEARING AND FRUITFUL?

In this country, we have the freedom to stand against unjust laws that circumvent clear biblical morality. Our country and its leaders (sic) have gone rogue in subjecting this country to laws that were not meant for free people. I am reminded of what the founding fathers wrote when they broke away from the tyranny of England in the Declaration of Independence: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.” How can we continue to live under government tyranny without taking back what we loaned to others in the government to represent us…? Is it so far gone that we have not got…
