For the past 13 years, Nancy Missler has been involved in The King’s High Way Ministry (www.kingshighway.org) which is dedicated to encouraging and teaching Christians how to walk out their faith. It focuses on the ‘practical application’ of Biblical principles.

I have excerpted a short study of Nancy’s titled “Our Free Will”.

It has been helpful to me in understanding that my best choices are always based on pleasing God.

For example, I may not feel like making that particular best choice which the Holy Spirit is prompting me to make; I might feel like my choice is the right one for my circumstances. Because, sometimes, when I choose to please God and make that best choice, it does not feel ‘honest’ to me, since I’m making it for Him and it’s not how I really feel (my own choice).

Nancy explains that when making what she calls a ‘contrary choice’ that is not my usual pattern of choice, but one that is being mindful of God’s holiness, “we are permitted to choose something we don’t feelWe have the authority – the word of the person in charge (which, of course, is God) - and we also have His power and His ability – to make that choice happen in our lives.

And, when my will gets softened and used to yielding to God’s best choices, they will not ‘feel’ so external, but will be internal and inborn.

(Yes! That’s sanctification!!) Amen,

Editor

congratsThe McClatchy Report: “UK Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted his congrats to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his victory Tuesday. So did Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. And Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who said “ Israel has no greater friend than Canada.”

But not U.S. President Barack Obama.

Obama’s delay led some to question whether Obama was just snubbing Netanyahu after a weeks-long feud over a potential nuclear deal with Iran.”

Opinion: Interesting that President Obama had the time to congratulate:

  • Vladimir Putin, Russia – 2012
  • Mohamed Morsi,  Egypt – 2012 (now in prison)
  • Hassan Rouhani, Iran – 2013
  • Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey 2014

Josh Earnest used an excuse about the president waiting until a government is formed but immediately turned the conversation to Netanyahu’s pre-election promises:

  1. No Palestinian state
  2. No division of Jerusalem
  3. More building in East Jerusalem

Earnest: “It has been the policy of the United States for more than 20 years that a two-state solution is the goal of resolving the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinian people,” he said. “And that two-state solution has been pursuit of a democratic and Jewish state of Israel living side by side in peace and security with an independent and sovereign Palestinian state. That has been the policy of the United States under both Democratic and Republican presidents.”

And Both Democrat and Republican presidents have been defying a sovereign God for more than 20 years:

  • Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse …”
  • Joel 3:1-2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”

The judgment for those who defy God’s command:

Joel 3:20-21 “Judah will be inhabited for ever and Jerusalem through all generations. Shall I leave their innocent blood unavenged? No, I will not”

Zechariah 12:3 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”

Sunday Post: MOSES AS A TYPE OF CHRIST

Foreshadowing, ‘typology’, or pre-figuring is God’s way of showing us in OT persons or events, future events or aspects of Christ in the NT. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 10:10-11 that many things “were written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.” Moses was a servant, friend, and prophet of
