Scripture of the Day

Isaiah 7

 1And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it.

 2And it was told the house of David, saying, Syria is confederate with Ephraim. And his heart was moved, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.

 3Then said the LORD unto Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shearjashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller’s field;

 4And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.

 5Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have taken evil counsel against thee, saying,

 6Let us go up against Judah, and vex it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeal:

 7Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.

 8For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.

 9And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah’s son. If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established.

 10Moreover the LORD spake again unto Ahaz, saying,

 11Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.

 12But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD.

 13And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?

 14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

Joel Osteen and Larry King-Part 2

Maybe I am gullible, but there was a part of me that wanted to think that Joel Osteen would come out and be a man of courage and committment on his appearance tonight on Larry King Live. But alas, it was Osteen as usual, with his rambling responses, his unwillingness to stand for the Gospel and his wishy-washy “theology”. He stammered on trying to quote John 3:16, still danced around the exclusiveness of the Gospel, and NEVER once mentioned repentance from sin and turning in faith to Christ as Lord. I am going to go back and listen to it again, but I can’t recall very many times when he even mentioned the Name of Jesus, something he apparently learned from the Rick Warren school of tv interviews.

What was displayed on the King program was so far removed from the authentic Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ that it is unbelieveable. Yet, sadly, it is the false gospel of the Osteens, Hybels, and Warrens that are pushed off being the true gospel and thus gets all the attention. Oh Lord save us from ourselves.
