  •  The Blessedness of the Lord’s Return

     

    “Lo, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is he who is awake…” (See Revelation 16:15, RSV).

    The return (or second coming) of Jesus is one of the great doctrines/themes of the Bible. In studying this teaching many devise complicated schemes using maps, charts, and timetables which are far more complicated than the simple, straight-forward proclamation of Jesus himself. The text in Revelation 16:15 mercifully gives us a very simple agenda.

  • One of the bravest sermons I have ever heard

     

     “We urge you, brethren, to recognize those who labor among you, and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake” (1 Thessalonians 5:12-13).

  • Fourth of July and miner’s vacation

     

    First let me tell you about the place we lived from 1947 until 1964. I was eight years old when we moved to Leatherwood, Ky. My dad Walter “Dink” Bryant worked for Blue Diamond Coal Company as a motorman. We had lived in Harlan County, Kentucky up until this time, at a place called Twila, Ky. Dad worked for Creech Coal Company. There was a bus to and from Harlan several times a day.

  • The Blessedness of a Christian Death

     

    “…Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord henceforth…” (See Revelation 14:33, RSV).

    There is a blessedness (happiness) in being able to face death as a Christian – a believer – someone who is confident of God’s love and grace. The Psalms, especially, are filled with the idea that there are blessings to be gained in death (see Psalms 23:4, 49:15, 116:15). The second of the seven beatitudes in Revelation speaks of the blessedness of a Christian death.

  • The wonder of watching our children cross the threshold of adulthood

  • Our sincere prayers are heard

     

    I heard a remark recently that I had never heard put that way before. The subject was concerning Satan and his plans and cunning ways. The statement was; “satan has had practice in deception for thousands of years, while every generation is new to his steal, kill and destroy methods” John 10.10.

    The speaker was reminding us that our enemy is real, but our hope lies in following Christ and depending on Him. Prayer is real, it is the way we communicate with our Heavenly Father.
