By Roy Burner - Minister of the Gospel
Timeless messages are endless in value. I have heard many messages ministered that I have never forgotten over the years; they are of value and at times even recalled to my mind. These timeless messages, placed on this Webpage, will be purged from time to time; out of necessity, but others will be added.
Job cried out: Oh, that my works were now written! Oh, that they were printed in a book (Job 19:23)! Job received his desire; as his words are forever embedded in the Scriptures. I have drawn many times from previous timeless messages of great men of God who have since passed on but their words have been recorded for others to benefit from.
History would have eventually died out; had it not been inscribed for future generations. It is promised in God's Word that its timeless message will endure forever: That Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away (Matthew 24:35).
A HEALTHY BODY
is imperative towards sustaining life; whether it be physical or
spiritual. In regards to the physical side the Israelites were given an
extensive list of clean and unclean animals according to the Law.
BREATHING ROOM is sufficient space to permit freedom of movement. It gives a person room to study the situation at hand. In our society today there is a tendency to allow others to evaluate and persuade rather than each individual coming to their own conclusion.
CLEANSING OF THE TEMPLE is key to individual lives when realization comes into focus that such refers to Christianity and living a sanctified life in Christ.
DEPLORABLE STATE A deplorable state is being in a condition of contempt. Life's evils are of such a nature; if one allows themselves to embrace such a lifestyle.
EXPOSING OF SIN has become more prominent in recent days. There is a saying that "Old sins cast long shadows" which is bearing fruit in the hour in which we are living as the destructive nature of sinful living comes to the forefront.
FORCES OF DARKNESS is a catalyst toward the goal of defusing the light of the Gospel; by attempting to undermine its influence on mankind.
GLIMMER OF HOPE lies within each individual even in midst of drastic circumstances; especially if that hope is intertwined with faith in God.
HARMLESS AS DOVES Harmless as doves is the term Jesus used in sending His disciples out to minister (Matthew 10:16). Such a term advocates peace not conflict.
HOPE VERSUS DESPAIR Hope versus despair is an essential part of a Christian's life; not mere expectation or desire, but that which includes trust, confidence, and refuge in the God of hope.
IN THE BACKGROUND infers one who is seemingly unnoticed; does not shine out as others. They are behind persons in the foreground who are taking the bows and more prominent in stature.
LIFELINES IN TROUBLESOME TIMES is needful to have a peace of mind towards what one may be facing. We live in difficult times with much turmoil that could readily make one fearful.
MARCH IN CADENCE is to do so in uniform time with whom one is marching with. If one person is out of step it is readily noticeable. When a large group of people march for a cause, they are in unison in expressing their ideals or to protest a supposed injustice.
OBSTACLES IN LIFE need to be removed; surmounted or circumvented. Such brings opposition, hinders progress, or an impediment towards a desired goal. We are living in times in which freedom of speech is being pushed to the hilt circumventing its original intent; helping create some of the obstacles faced.
ONE FAMILY OF GOD
goes beyond the descriptive narrative of the modern day family. In our
modern day family we are seeing; in many cases, traits of disparity and
a dysfunctional family. The New Testament concept of the family is to
live together in harmony and love.
POWERFUL INFLUENCE TO DECEIVE Powerful influence to deceive flourishes in the world today.
PRESENT DAY MENTALITY is notably different than of yesteryear. We live in an electronic age that changes the thoughts and patterns of many individuals. A new scope of reasoning plays into focus that can either be of a beneficial or destructive nature.
RECEIVING THE MARK is much enhanced in the world today through modern day communication and technology. This technology appears as beneficial to mankind but often is but a preclude to what is warned against in God's Word.
REVIVE US AGAIN is to recover from a state of neglect. The fruition of openly flaunted ungodliness has hasten the probability of judgment being exercised by God; not only punishment for a sin-driven people, but to induce a return to God.
THE AWAKENING HOUR comes into focus when the consciousness of people are stirred; when the reality of what one is facing is realized.
THE CLUTTER OF LIFE can be overbearing and intimating; if not dealt with. It does not take long to accumulate in one's mind that which can be either beneficial or destructive in nature.
THE VISIBLE HORIZON can be the limit of a person's range of perception, capabilities, or experience; or one can go beyond such perception where new knowledge or experiences may be found.
TIME OF THE HEATHEN caught my attention in the Book of Ezekiel and I began to reflect on the current situation in America, and other once godly nations, who have entered into evil ways of their own choosing.
TIME TO VACATE Is it not time to vacate a life that has been out of tune to God's Word and to "Tune in" to "What Thus saith the Lord?" America, as well as many other countries, are experiencing hatred and false accusers who rise up with a ugliness that leaves scars on the lives of many.
VEHICLE FOR GOD'S USE Vehicle for God's use is one which can be utilized as an instrument of conveyance; not merely as a sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal (1 Corinthians 13:1), but of real value to a world in need of reconciliation to God.
WAKE UP CALL is to cause one to become awake or conscious as to what is happening. In America we are seeing sobering record breaking occurrences in the form of natural disasters; with enormous loss of property, millions of lives affected; and loss of life.
WITHDRAWAL FROM GOD is a retraction of a previously held position. It is a retreat and abandonment of previously gained ground.
