1 Corinthians 2:10-16 10 Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not […]
PSALMS 64 1 (To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer: preserve my life from fear of the enemy. 2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked; from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity: 3 Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend […]
IN TROUBLED TIMES! “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?” —Psalm 27:1 “It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be with you; he will not leave you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed.” […]
Psalm 74 74 O God, why hast thou cast us off for ever? why doth thine anger smoke against the sheep of thy pasture? 2 Remember thy congregation, which thou hast purchased of old; the rod of thine inheritance, which thou hast redeemed; this mount Zion, wherein thou hast dwelt. 3 Lift up thy feet unto the perpetual […]

HAGMANN/IMPE/LINDSEY/MARKELL- WE BRING YOU PROPHETIC UPDATES
Jan Markell’s first guest is Dr. Dave Reagan. They discuss his new book, “The Jewish People: Rejected or Beloved.” In the short segment, they discuss “Dual Covenant Theology” and Reagan’s efforts to reach out to Dr. John Hagee who embraces this theology though he will often deny it. In the last two segments, Jan interviews Ann Graham Lotz on her concerns which include the great falling away in the church, her new-found concern for Israel, and her belief that the Lord’s return is imminent. She concludes encouraging listeners to trust God even when we don’t understand His ways in our lives.
Ben-hadad’s escape an encouragement for sinners
So they came to the king of Israel, and said, thy servant Ben-hadad saith, I pray thee, let me live. And he said, is he yet alive? he is my brother. Then he said, go ye, bring him. 1 Kings 20:32-33
How does your child come to you when he wants anything? Does he open a big book, and begin reading, My dear, esteemed, and venerated parent, in the effulgence of thy parental beneficence? Nothing of the kind. He says, Father, my clothes are worn out, please buy me a new coat; or else he says, I am hungry, let me have something to eat. That is the way to pray, and there is no prayer which God accepts but that kind of pray right straight from the heart, and right straight to God’s heart. We miss the mark when we go about to gather gaudy words. What! gaudy words on the lips of a poor sinner? Fine phrases from a rebel? There is more true eloquence in God be merciful to me a sinner than in all the books of devotion which bishops, and archbishops, and divines ever compiled. â€˜Thy servant Ben-hadad saith, I pray thee, let me live. I feel inclined to stop and ask you to bow your heads, and pray that prayer. O God, thy servant saith, I pray thee, let me live. O cut me not down as a cumberer of the ground, but let me live; I am dead in trespasses and sins; quicken me, O Lord, and let me live; and when thou comest to slay the wicked on the earth, I pray thee, let me live; and when thou shalt destroy the ungodly, and sweep them with the broom of destruction into the pit that is bottomless, I pray thee, let me live. You see there is not a word of merit; there is nothing about what man has done; Ben-hadad only calls himself a servant. Make me as one of thy hired servants. Thy servant Ben-hadad saith, I pray thee, let me live.
For meditation: There are three kinds of prayers which cut no ice with God’s publicity-seeking prayers (Matthew 6:5), padded-out prayers (Matthew 6:7) and pretended prayers (Mark 12:40). Jesus taught His followers to pray privately and pointedly (Matthew 6:6,9-13). Have you truly prayed for your sins to be forgiven (Luke 11:4)?

On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
This blog is to present Up To Date Prophetic News. My prayer is that this blog will bring others to know Jesus as their Savior if they do not know him the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
