The view towards the Old City of Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives. Mt. Zion is central on the horizon. The City of David is on the left and in the foreground is the high point on the wall which is known as the pinnacle of the Temple.

Key Verses: John 12:10-11, 31

But the chief priests plotted to put Lazarus to death also, because on account of him many of the Jews went away and believed in Jesus… Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.

 

Like Lazarus, we who believe in Jesus have been raised from the dead. Ephesians 2:1 describes us as “dead in trespasses and sins,” but now “made alive.” We are living proof that Jesus is real and that He brings new life where there was death.

Our second key verse declares the reality of what happened at the Cross. The world, with its pride and rejection of God, mistakenly thought it was judging Jesus. The opposite is true. God was judging the world by the way it treated His Son. The so-called “ruler of this world” thought he was the winner, but again the opposite is true. The pretender to the throne was cast out. Jesus is King. His eternal Kingdom was established forever and ever. Amen!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Jesus, You are Lord of all. Grant that I may demonstrate that I’ve come out of the grave and discarded the grave clothes. May my life be the proof that You judged the world and deposed its ruler. I celebrate my new life with great joy. Thank You, Jesus! Amen!

100 PERSONAL WORDS:

I thank you who send me a reply. I read what you have written. The best way to get answers is by asking your Pastor or a Bible teacher at your local congregation. You can critique what I have written with your friends on facebook, or better still, in a home Bible Study with your brothers and sisters in Christ and potential new believers. If you start a home study group, get the blessing of your church. Beware of false teachers who may come to your door or who may be on radio or TV. There is protection in the fellowship of a church which is affiliated with an established denomination. Here in Canada, you can check the website of The Evangelical Fellowship of Canada for affiliated churches. Also, there are local congregations of the historic denominations which may not be a part of the EFC, but they are true to the historic Christian faith. Check out the church. Click here for the most ancient declaration and summary of our faith, “The Apostles Creed.” Still have questions? Make an appointment with a Pastor.

Yours for the glory of the One Who said, “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself” (John 12:32),

David

  2. Beverley, I just wanted you to know how blessed I am by the music you recommend listening to. What a beautiful praise song this morning. Thank you.

    Thank you David for being faithful in your boots every morning. Some days it is the only scripture I get to read.

    To God be the glory. Blessings to all today.

  3. PLEASE pray for my son, he may be having a heart attack, he is only 38 years old. He is a Christian , and has a wife and 3 young children. He is in emergency right now. Thanks.

    • Hi,Mary,I trust your son is stable now?I just now prayed,a day late but for recovery.God bless
      Our Father

      Oh God our Father you love us so,
      We are blind and can not know
      Just how great and kind you are,
      Content to love us from afar.

      We turn our backs and still you care;
      We close our eyes but you are there.
      Oh,why are we so far gone:
      We must choose freely for Zion.

      We hurt you daily by endless sin
      But still your light guides us in.
      You could not know how weak we are
      So you sent us Jesus to bear our scars.

      We are a mixture of sin and praise,
      But still you lift our spirits to raise
      The love that you see in us still,
      A desire to follow your holy will.
      G W (Bill) Marshall /Oct 10,2011

  5. Praying for you pastor David and 100 Huntley ST.What a blessing to have this program in our country.I look forward to each day hearing and reading God’s inspired word.Also reading the comments and prayer requests.

    • I pray for him often.It was a ‘quiet confidence’ that caused me to write this poem:
      Catch The Fire (4 David Mainse)

      Though you have walked many oceans
      And spread My word to many nations,
      I saw in you and your devotions
      A servant of joyous exhalations.

      You have not asked for earthly wealth,
      But just to be my most humble voice
      And when adversity was kept in stealth
      You still worshiped Me out of free choice.

      So out of free choice I give you
      More time upon the stage of learning,
      Whereby My word you show to be true
      And catch the fire that’s forever burning.
      G W(Bill) Marshall / 01 February, 2014

      I just found this earlier prayer in another file which I had forgotten:
      In The Blood (4 Pst.David Mainse )

      I pray for healing in the blood,oh Lord,
      I pray You will stretch out your hand,
      That You,my Lord,with Your fiery sword,
      Will show justice and not let evil stand.

      I know,my Lord,that Satan has cursed me
      And that only you can remove this hex,
      For it is you,Most High,that none can see,
      Who can take any scourge from our necks.

      So I pray for healing in the blood,my God,
      That you allow me to serve you,
      So as I spread your word all may laud,
      The name of the Father in all we do.
      G W (Bill) Marshall / 12 September, 2013

      12 No one has ever seen God. But
      if we love each other, God lives in us.
      If we love each other, God’s love has
      reached its goal—it is made perfect
      in us. 1 John 4:12 (ERV)

  6. Thanks again,David.My short Christian life has a long testimony to it which my mentors,several Pastors and a deacon(and CMA) who are now my close friends,know.I do share portions with links on my FB.If you find time to check it,I’m standing next to my DL 1000.Mt leather jacket has a large cross on the front compliments indirectly of the CMA.The poems I write and how they started is the reason for my faith.Besisde most of today’s scripture,I posted these words below.I’m about half way through my second trip through 100 Words.Thank you for leading.God bless

    ” Without Sin?

    Without sin how would we know where the beginning of truth is?There is no definite boundary to the light of a candle.A ‘white lie’ is still a lie and,arguably,close to (on which side?) this boundary.Satan hides his lies inside a lot of truth.Here’s an anology:
    Experts on counterfeit money don’t study the bogus money but instead they study the genuine money so well that they know the bogus money by what it does NOT have.
    Knowing God’s word is the only way to spot Satan’s lies when you here it from bogus (Prosperity preachers are good examples.) preachers who know the bible inside and out and use it to ‘their’ advantage.

    11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. “
