- Tuesday, 7/11/17  Leviticus 11:45, For I am the Lord that bringeth you up out of the land of Egypt, to be your God: ye shall therefore be holy, for I am holy. A reminder that we all are to be striving to become holy. Very simply...are you more so than a year ago? What’re you doing to become more so?

Allen Domelle 

Ecclesiastes 1:4
“One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh: but the earth abideth for ever.”

One thing that every person should realize is that life is short, and that there is another generation that will soon take our place. James 4:14 says, “Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.” As quickly as we go through this life, we should always be cognizant of the fact that another generation is following us. There are several responsibilities we have concerning the next generation.

Allen Domelle 

Ecclesiastes 8:11
“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.”

One of the training techniques used in training dogs is called marker training. The key to this training technique is to reward or punish the dog at the moment that they do good or bad so that they can mark in their minds what they did so they will know whether or not they should do that action again. If the trainer delays in marking the action, that action, whether good or bad, will not be remembered by the dog; thus, the dog continues its bad habits.

Allen Domelle 

Song of Solomon 2:3
“As the apple tree among the trees of the wood, so is my beloved among the sons. I sat down under his shadow with great delight, and his fruit was sweet to my taste.”

Every person who is married desires to have a strong and loving relationship with their spouse. You don’t get married with hopes that your marriage will be miserable.

Allen Domelle 

Isaiah 1:11
“To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.”

God asked an important question to His people. He asked, “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me?” God saw the sacrifices they made, how often they frequented the temple, He heard the prayers they prayed, but He still didn’t understand their purpose as to why they continued to do these things.

Allen Domelle 

Isaiah 9:12
“The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.”

There is a game many youth play where you clasp hands and see who will cry, “Mercy” first. Each person tries to push the hands back in such a manner that it becomes so painful for the one losing that they cry, “Mercy.” It is the mercy of the one winning that keeps them from inflicting more pain on the losing person. If they wanted, they could hurt them, but their mercy is what causes them to stop.

Allen Domelle 

Isaiah 22:13
“And behold joy and gladness, slaying oxen, and killing sheep, eating flesh, and drinking wine: let us eat and drink; for to morrow we shall die.”

The inevitable invasion of the Assyrian army revealed the mindset of the Jewish people. Even though they sacrificed and frequented the temple, it was the impending invasion of this army that revealed their heart and mind. The mindset that was so destructive was that they thought they should just live for the moment because they felt they were going to die on the morrow.

Allen Domelle 

Isaiah 32:15
“Until the spirit be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted for a forest.”

A prophecy of desolation is found in Isaiah 32. God talks about the palaces being forsaken, the inhabited city being desolate, the forts becoming a den for the wild animals, the homes of the city being dilapidated, and the people of God becoming servants to the enemy. It seems as if there is no hope for God’s people until you come to the verse above.

Allen Domelle 

Isaiah 39:8
“Then said Hezekiah to Isaiah, Good is the word of the LORD which thou hast spoken. He said moreover, For there shall be peace and truth in my days.”

Hezekiah achieved much good for the LORD in the early years of his reign. He was probably the third greatest king in Israel’s history, yet his reign was tainted by faulty focal points at the end of his life. What is sad is that his focal points were right when he just began to reign, but his confidence in himself is what led him to faulty focal points. The verse above shows us three faulty focal points that became the eventual destruction of a good man.

Allen Domelle 

Isaiah 47:10
“For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.”

It is said twice in Isaiah 47 that the Babylonians said, “I am, and none else beside me.” These people had become so confident in themselves that they placed themselves above God. They thought that nobody could ever remove them from their status; however, they found out that their confidence was misplaced. Their false confidence led to their demise. There were three things in which they placed their confidence.

Allen Domelle 

Isaiah 58:14
“Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.”

God always gives motivation for His people to get right with Him. You would think when a Christian learns of the LORD’s blessings that every Christian would want to serve Him, but sadly, many continue in the way of sin and reap the heartache it causes. In Isaiah 58, God shows several benefits you receive when you choose to serve Him.

- Tuesday, 6/13/17  Jeremiah 25:4, And the Lord hath sent unto you all his servants the prophets, rising early and sending them; but ye have not hearkened, nor inclined your ear to hear. “To hearken”: to hear intelligently, with the implication of attention and obedience. The modern version is “Listen to hear and not to respond.”

Allen Domelle 

1 Chronicles 12:33
“Of Zebulun, such as went forth to battle, expert in war, with all instruments of war, fifty thousand, which could keep rank: they were not of double heart.”

Not much is said about Zebulun in the Scriptures, but the verse above speaks volumes about this little-known tribe. One thing we do know about the tribe of Zebulun is that they were with Barak when he fought against Sisera, they were with Gideon when he fought the Midianites, and they stood with David when he was made king of Israel.

Allen Domelle 

1 Chronicles 9:19
“And Shallum the son of Kore, the son of Ebiasaph, the son of Korah, and his brethren, of the house of his father, the Korahites, were over the work of the service, keepers of the gates of the tabernacle: and their fathers, being over the host of the LORD, were keepers of the entry.”

In a world when feminists push the woman-led agenda for the home and society, the Scriptures still dictate for the man to be the leader in the home. It is no wonder that our society is dysfunctional because we have left God’s order of how the home and society should be led. God has always shown through the Scriptures that the men are to be the leaders.

Allen Domelle 

Psalm 78:4
“We will not hide them from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.”

When you were a child, you probably played the game, “Hide and Seek.” Someone was chosen to be “it,” they would cover their eyes and count to a certain number while the other children went to hide, and once they counted to that certain number, they would go and seek to find the children who were hiding. The children hiding provoked the one person to seek.

Allen Domelle

2 Chronicles 6:14
“And said, O LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth; which keepest covenant, and shewest mercy unto thy servants, that walk before thee with all their hearts:”

I love what Solomon said about God when he dedicated the temple. He said, “…O LORD God of Israel, there is no God like thee in the heaven, nor in the earth…” Solomon must have been overwhelmed with all that the LORD had done for him that he couldn’t help but proclaim that God is better than all the gods.
