06/05 BRING TWO LOAVES OF BREAD…There are two loaves of bread, side by side, on the offering table to the Lord. This unusual offering was appointed for this time of the year for God’s chosen people. Since both loaves are leavened, they appear to be spiritually significant as sinful types of mankind. But this is a heavenly offering... More...

05/26 THIS SAME JESUS… The book of Acts records the last words of Jesus, spoken from the eastern slope of the Mount of Olives at Bethany. "’...You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.’ After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight. They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. ‘Men of Galilee,’ they said, ‘why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.’” Acts 1:8-10. More...

05/20 THEY BURIED THE PEOPLE WHO HAD THE CRAVING…3500 years ago, during May 20-24 on our 2022 Gregorian calendar, God sent a plague upon a nation who claimed to worship Him but were never satisfied with His direction and provision. God's Word records many of them complained to death, literally. “Now the rabble that was among them had a strong craving...They buried the people who had the craving.” Numbers 11:4,34. More...

05/15 IN THE MORNING YOU WILL SEE THE GLORY OF THE LORD…Lately we Christians have been reduced to just plain-old grumbling about our current circumstances. It is no coincidence that God Almighty has appointed this lesson for us at exactly this time. Like the ancient Israelites, we have been crying out to God for deliverance, and our patience is fading fast. Listen now as the Lord speaks: “… In the morning you will see the glory of the Lord, because he has heard your grumbling against him…” Exodus 16:6. More...

05/03 ON THE MOUNTAIN OF THE LORD IT WILL BE PROVIDED… When Abraham faithfully obeyed God’s call to sacrifice his son on the mountain, a ram was provided, and Isaac was spared. Genesis 22:14 records, "So Abraham called that place The Lord Will Provide. And to this day it is said, “On the mountain of the Lord it will be provided.” 2000 years later when Jesus, the Firstborn Son of God Almighty, was NOT spared, He became God’s appointed provision for the sins of the entire human race on the very same “mountain of the LORD”. More...

05/01 EVERY MAN BY NAME...The Lord said to Abraham in Genesis 15:5: “Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them…so shall your offspring be.” Today, astronomers estimate there are ten thousand billion trillion stars. That’s a 1 followed by 25 zeros and lots of exclamation points. 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000!!! More...

04/24 PEACE BE WITH YOU! Following the morning Resurrection of Jesus, this incredible account is recorded in John 20:19-20: “On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you!’ After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.” More...

04/18 “THE SPIRIT OF GOD WHO RAISED JESUS FROM THE DEAD, LIVES IN YOU. AND JUST AS GOD RAISED CHRIST JESUS FROM THE DEAD, HE WILL GIVE LIFE TO YOUR MORTAL BODIES BY THIS SAME SPIRIT LIVING WITHIN YOU.” Romans 8:11. Jesus also said this in John 5:28-29: “Do not be amazed at this, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.” More...

04/13“LET MY PEOPLE GO so that they may hold a festival to me in the desert.” 3500 years ago under a full moon during the spring season, The Almighty announced His presence to a world power that had a stranglehold over the people who worshipped Him. God announced His intention to free them through a series of plagues which rearranged their daily lives, decimated their national economy, wracked them with disease, disrupted their weather patterns, devastated their food supply, increased insects to unbearable swarms, and plunged them into darkness for days. Finally, with the 10th plague of death, even people who didn’t worship Him were brought to their knees. More...

04/10 I WILL BRING ONE MORE PLAGUE… 3500 years ago, under the midnight illumination of a full moon, God brought a final plague upon a proud, haughty nation that would convince them once and for all that He was God. He would bring death to every household. Only the life’s blood of an innocent lamb could save them. But they would have to choose that lamb themselves, care for it in their homes, and together, sacrifice it so that they might live. Appointed death would “pass over” them if the innocent’s blood marked their abode. Exodus 11-12 More...

04/02 IN THE BEGINNING GOD… When Apollo 8 carried mankind into lunar orbit for the first time on December 24, 1968, a billion people on Earth heard the Word of God being broadcast 240,000 miles above them. "We are now approaching lunar sunrise. For all the people back on earth, the crew of Apollo 8 has a message we would like to send to you. 'In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth...’”

More...

03/27 HE SET HIS FACE TO GO TO JERUSALEM…2000 years ago, in a beautiful spring season just like today, Jesus journeyed from the countryside of the Holy Land, up to the Holy City of Jerusalem—one last time. Along the way, He traveled through town after town, teaching what it really meant to follow Him. And what He said was never EVER what folks expected to hear.

More...

03/20 LIKE BRIDEGROOM COMING OUT OF HIS CHAMBER… “The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course. It rises at one end of the heavens and makes its circuit to the other...” Psalm 19:1-6. More...

03/13 “I AM THE LORD…FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS…DAY BY DAY, THE KING GAVE” For the past month, the Almighty has gathered together a heavenly collage of Bible lessons. Perfectly scheduled and executed for the benefit of all mankind, they are out-of-this-world lessons that only He could have appointed. God began on the very first day of His 12th month with the announcement “…Then they will know that I am the Lord.” Since that anniversary date was February 3 on our 2022 calendar, it is impossible not to recognize the timing of the Almighty in delivering this powerful, ancient lesson to our contemporary world. More...

03/05 I AM THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE… During the last winter of His life, Jesus made an earth-shattering statement that literally brought the future into the present. “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives by believing in Me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25-26.

More..

02/27 DAY BY DAY, THE KING GAVE… Just when you feel like you've hit rock bottom, imprisoned by your own poor choices, the King can still part the sky, set you free and treat you like royalty for the rest of your days. Today’s Bible lesson recounts just such an event.

More...

02/17 THEN THEY WILL KNOW THAT I AM THE LORD…These are God's Words, delivered through the Watchman Ezekiel, as He pronounced judgment on ancient Egypt. The phrase or its subject equivalent is used 68 times in the book of Ezekiel. Millennia later, her legendary pyramids now function as a tourist attraction viewed through the front window of the “Pizza Tut” across the street.

More...

02/12 FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS… It all began with a government official who had an intense personal prejudice and hatred for a group of people who had become part of his nation. He used his position of governance to schedule their total annihilation. God intervened, prompting an unlikely savior of the people through these timeless words: "And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” More...

02/04 I AM THE LORD AND THERE IS NO OTHER…These are the words of God Almighty crossing the chasm of time to remind us that His choices are perfect. Incredibly, He ordained the Father of Iran, King Cyrus of Persia, to rebuild the Temple, and supervise the return of His exiled people to Jerusalem, guaranteeing the survival of the line of David, and the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ. More...

01/27 BABYLON…COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE. We need this timely warning that the infamous biblical Babylon and her expansive walls still exists. We Christians are literally surrounded by her idols and mindset. Given the call of the Almighty to "Come out of her, my people!", will we listen and repent?

More...

01/22 A CITY WITHOUT WALLS...God's Word crosses the chasm of 2700 years with a timeless message for 2022. When the prophet Zechariah had a vision of “a man with a measuring line in his hand” headed to measure Jerusalem's walls, God dispatched an angel with this chastising message: "Jerusalem will be a city without walls... And I myself will be a wall of fire around it," declares the Lord, "and I will be its glory within." More

01/15 A MAN RIDING A RED HORSE…About 2700 years ago during this time of the year, the ancient prophet Zechariah's night-visions began with a man riding a red horse. These revelations continue to encourage God’s people, reminding us He is interested in every detail of our lives, and is working behind the scenes with a perfect plan for restoring His heavenly and earthly Temple on this earth and in the hearts of His people. More...

01/04 YOU HAVE STAYED LONG ENOUGH AT THS MOUNTAIN… Around 1500 BC, God Almighty announced through Moses that the Israelites had to move forward away from their comfort zone in order to follow Him. “In the fortieth year, on the first day of the eleventh month, Moses proclaimed to the Israelites all that the LORD had commanded him concerning them…The LORD our God said to us at Horeb, ‘You have stayed long enough at this mountain. Break camp and advance…” Deuteronomy1:3,6. More...
