Your Personal Invitation to be Saved
and go to Heaven when your life on earth is over!!!
(1) God loves You!!
Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
(2) Your Sin (or Disobedience to God) has Separated You from God!!
Romans 5:12, Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all
men, for that all have sinned:
(3) Only Jesus-Christ
can Forgive Your Sins!!
Acts 4:12, Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
(4) Will You Receive Jesus-Christ as
Your Lord (or Authority) & Savior (or Rescuer)??
Mark 1:15, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
(Through Prayer) Sorrowfully tell God Your a Sinner, willing to turn from Your Sins and trust Jesus-Christ's shedding of Blood
and Death on the Cross for Full Payment of Your Sins and will Follow Him.

|Busy About the Lord's Business|
Today's Scripture: Ezekiel 32
| | 1And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month, in the first day
of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king
of Egypt, and to his multitude; Whom art thou like in thy greatness?
3Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon
with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the thick boughs.
waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her rivers running round about his plants, and sent her little
rivers unto all the trees of the field.
5Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the field,
and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.
the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth
their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.
7Thus was he fair in his greatness, in
the length of his branches: for his root was by great waters.
8The cedars in the garden of God could not hide
him: the fir trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his branches; nor any tree in the
garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.
9I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches:
so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him.
10Therefore thus saith the Lord
GOD; Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart
is lifted up in his height;
11I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen; he shall surely
deal with him: I have driven him out for his wickedness.
12And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him
off, and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken
by all the rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him.
his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:
end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among the
thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto
death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit.
saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and
I restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all
the trees of the field fainted for him.
16I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast
him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all
that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth.
17They also went down into hell with him unto
them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the midst of the heathen.
whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the
trees of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that
be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord GOD.
|Today's Scripture Meaning: |
The fall of Egypt. (1-16) It is like that of other nations. (17-32)
Verses 1-16: It becomes us to weep and tremble for those who will not weep
and tremble for themselves. Great oppressors are, in God's account, no better than beasts of prey. Those who admire
the pomp of this world, will wonder at the ruin of that pomp; which to those who know the vanity of all things here
below, is no surprise. When others are ruined by sin, we have to fear, knowing ourselves guilty. The instruments of
the desolation are formidable. And the instances of the desolation are frightful. The waters of Egypt shall run like
oil, which signifies there should be universal sadness and heaviness upon the whole nation. God can soon empty those
of this world's goods who have the greatest fulness of them. By enlarging the matters of our joy, we increase the
occasions of our sorrow. How weak and helpless, as to God, are the most powerful of mankind! The destruction of Egypt
was a type of the destruction of the enemies of Christ.
Divers nations are mentioned as gone down to the grave before Egypt, who are ready to give her a scornful reception; these
nations had been lately ruined and wasted. But though Judah and Jerusalem were about this time ruined and laid waste,
yet they are not mentioned here. Though they suffered the same affliction, and by the same hand, yet the kind design
for which they were afflicted, and the mercy God reserved for them, altered its nature. It was not to them a going
down to the pit, as it was to the heathen. Pharaoh shall see, and be comforted; but the comfort wicked ones have after
death, is poor comfort, not real, but only in fancy. The view this prophecy gives of ruined states shows something
of this present world, and the empire of death in it. Come and see the calamitous state of human life. As if men did
not die fast enough, they are ingenious at finding out ways to destroy one another. Also of the other world; though
the destruction of nations as such, seems chiefly intended, here is plain allusion to the everlasting ruin of impenitent
sinners. How are men deceived by Satan! What are the objects they pursue through scenes of bloodshed, and their many
sins? Surely man disquiets himself in vain, whether he pursues wealth, fame, power, or pleasure. The hour cometh,
when all that are in their graves shall hear the voice of Christ, and shall come forth; those that have done good
to the resurrection of life, and those that have done evil to the resurrection of damnation.
|Today's Scripture Application: |
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in
the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue the Book of Ezekiel with
Chapter 32. In our text today we see that all of Israel's enemies will perish. Today we see all the enemies of God still
not able to remove Israel from its position and power due to the covenant with Abraham. In making application
we see that God is sovereign and the enemies of God will perish and the rapture is coming ever so near which should
cause us to be busy about the Lord's business by reaching the world with the Word of God. How about you? Do
you see the writing on the wall and does this truth compel us to witness to everyone that the Lord brings across

that spirit of materialism and self-seeking and lust for power and vengeance which has plunged the family of nations
into war, until in Thy just wrath the world suffers that punishment which, by turning from Thee, it has brought upon
itself. In humility and penance, may we lessen the guilt and hasten true peace, without victory, save the victory
of union with Thee. Amen.Let Us Pray: O God, from Whom proceed all holy desires, all right counsels and all
just works, grant unto us Thy servants that peace which the world cannot give, that our hearts may be devoted to Thy
service, and that being delivered from the fear of our enemies, we may pass our time in peace under Thy protection,
through Christ Our Lord. Amen WORLD WIDE PASTORS AND EVANGELISTS ,Prayer Teams, AND THEIR FAMILIES,
