Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading 1 Timothy  Chapter 3 & Chapter 4

Today I’m departing from our daily format in order to share what and why The Feast is.

What is “The Feast”? The Feast is a daily study in God’s word. By reading a chapter a day (sometimes two) we go through every word in the bible in about three years. I send the Feast out usually seven days a week, sometimes the weekend Feast is for Friday Saturday and Sunday. We host a prayer list which we keep up on prayer every day. http://www.admenu.com/prayer.htm. We would count it a blessing if you asked us to pray for you! 

You can always reach me by email at: mike@admenu.com  I don’t solicit money and I do accept prayerful correction. The Saints that subscribe to the Feast love to pray & they know how to be forgiving because some of them have been putting up with me for years.  We don’t promote any particular version of the bible because if you pray before you read the scripture the Holy Spirit will bless you with understanding.

Our Mission; Faith through the Word We know where faith comes from; “So then faith [comes] by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.Romans 10:17. We also know that you need to belong to a fellowship lead by God. We are not trying to fill that need.  We just want to help with prayer when you need it and nourishment on a daily basis.  Our Bible reading plan, takes about 15 minutes a day.  We read every word in the Holy Bible in about three year cycles.

16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;  John 4:23-24 ESV.

Who Did Jesus Come to Save?

 

Today’s Feast

Jan. 30, 2014 – 1 Timothy 1 & 2

Those Who Jesus Came to Save?

 

“15 and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” 2 Corinthians 5:14

 

1st Timothy an overview; “The design of the epistle appears to be, that Timothy having been left at Ephesus, St. Paul wrote to instruct him in the choice of proper officers in the church, as well as in the exercise of a regular ministry. Also, to caution against the influence of false teachers, who by subtle distinctions and endless disputes, corrupted the purity and simplicity of the gospel. He presses upon him constant regard to the greatest diligence, faithfulness, and zeal. These subjects occupy the first four chapters; the fifth chapter instructs respecting particular classes; in the latter part, controversies and disputes are condemned, the love of money blamed, and the rich exhorted to good works.” –  Matthew Henry Concise

1 Timothy Chapter 1, “The apostle salutes Timothy. (1-4) The design of the law as given by Moses. (5-11) Of his own conversion and call to the apostleship. (12-17) The obligation to maintain faith and a good conscience. (18-20)”    Matthew Henry Concise

1 Timothy Chapter 2, “Prayer to be made for all persons, since the grace of the gospel makes no difference of ranks or stations. (1-7) How men and women ought to behave, both in their religious and common life. (8-15)”    Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading 1 Timothy  Chapter 1 & Chapter 2

 

In today’s Feast In Chapter 1 the people are warned against promoting un-repentant sinners as members of the Church.  The stratagem of God’s law and Paul’s call to the apostleship.  The Saints are prompted to carry on sharing the gospel in good faith imitating Jesus.  In Chapter 2 we are told to pray for all persons, with no regard for their positions or their outward appearance. How men and women ought to behave in an orderly manner, in every aspect of their life.  We are reminded there is one mediator between men and God.  18 This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 19 holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith,1 Timothy 1:18-19  (English Standard Version) ESV.   Jesus said if we have faith and do not doubt, we will have the power to move mountains (see Matthew 21:21).   Jesus came and died on the cross for any person willing to repent from their sin and accept the gift of salvation.  16 From now on, therefore, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we once regarded Christ according to the flesh, we regard him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 18 All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation;  John 4:23-24 ESV.  Jesus is sent from God the Father to redeem the sinners (see 1 Timothy 2:5).  Jesus didn’t come to save the righteous; he came to rescue those who are lost in sin.

 

Is Jesus calling you?  Do you want to be clean, free from condemnation?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.  John 4:23-24 ESV.

Jan. 29, 2014 – Proverbs 31

Why Should We Fear the Lord?

 

“No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13

 

Proverbs 31, Verse1-9. “An exhortation to king Lemuel to take heed of sin, and to do duties.” Verse 10-31. “The description of a virtuous woman. (10-31)”    Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading proverbs Chapter 31.

 

In today’s Feast The King is advised to live an upright and sin free life as a leader f the land.  The good wife is pictured as living a life dedicated to God and her family.   9 Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy; 31 Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates.Proverbs 31:9; 31 (English Standard Version) ESV.   The words of king Lempel would be good advice to any person at home, work and as a parent (see 1 Timothy 3:12).  Those women who would have the perfect family would be wise to conduct their affairs like the good wife pictured in these verses (see Proverbs 31:10-31).  The most important relationship any man or woman has is the spiritual one with God.  23 But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.  John 4:23-24 ESV.  Keep this in mind; unless a person is born again they can’t be in a real relationship with Jesus (see 1 Peter 1:3).  Let’s worship Jesus in spirit and truth acknowledging that, the fear of the Lord is just the beginning of knowledge.

 

Do you hear Jesus calling you?  Do you want to answer the call?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.  Galatians 1:6-8 ESV.

Jan. 28, 2014 – Proverbs 30

Do It With Love And Compassion

“He who trusts in himself is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom is kept safe.” Proverbs 28:26

 

Proverbs 30, Verse 1. “Agur speaks of himself as wanting a righteousness, and having done very foolishly. And it becomes us all to have low thoughts of ourselves.”  Verse 29-33. “We may learn from animals to go well; also to keep our temper under all provocations. We must keep the evil thought in our minds from breaking out into evil speeches. We must not stir up the passions of others. Let nothing be said or done with violence, but every thing with softness and calmness. Alas, how often have we done foolishly in rising up against the Lord our King! Let us humble ourselves before him. And having found peace with Him, let us follow peace with all men.” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading proverbs Chapter 30.

 

In today’s Feast Can be used for all godly instruction; We take a good look at where and in whom the saints should be putting our trust.   27 An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous, but one whose way is straight is an abomination to the wicked.Proverbs 30:27 (English Standard Version) ESV.   Pride and cruelty, exalts wicked men who are not worthy to hold power; foolish men who punish their piers rob them of succor (see Proverbs 19:10, 28:3).  Those who add to God’s Word will be found out as liars (see Proverbs 30:6).  We need to hold fast to God’s Word persons who pervert God’s words will earn a liars reward.  6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel— 7 not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.  Galatians 1:6-8 ESV.  Stand fast in your faith and the gospel we have received from Jesus (see Romans 10:17).   If someone comes with other books or bible versions that say “Jesus is not the only begotten son of God” (see John 3:16) witness to them.  Don’t act foolish or slam the door in their face.  Be a loving witness to the power of God’s love.  Tell them that Jesus loves them.  Tell them that all they need is the whole Word of God and the Holy Spirit to give them understanding. You may even ask them to pray with you.  Jesus will bless the faithful.

17 Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. 18 They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. 19 They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. 20 But that is not the way you learned Christ! Ephesians 4:17-20 ESV.

Jan. 27, 2014 – Proverbs 29

We Discern Or Become Worldly?

“4 You adulterous people! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” James 4:4

 

Proverbs 29, Verse 1. “If God wounds, who can heal? The word of God warns all to flee from the wrath to come, to the hope set before us in Jesus Christ.”  Verse 27. “The just man abhors the sins of the wicked, and shuns their company. Christ exposed the wickedness of men, yet prayed for the wicked when they were crucifying him. Hatred to sin in ourselves and others, is a needful branch of the Christian temper. But all that are unholy, have rooted hatred to godliness.” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading proverbs Chapter 29.

 

In today’s Feast We see the comparison of those who love God’s wisdom to those who embrace foolishness.   27 An unjust man is an abomination to the righteous, but one whose way is straight is an abomination to the wicked.Proverbs 29:27 (English Standard Version) ESV.   A wise person uses discernment choosing to befriend believers while offering God’s love to the worldly (see 2 Corinthians 6:14). Offer the love of God through Jesus to the unsaved.  If they reject your witness leave them alone (see Matthew 10:14).  We should continue to love our neighbor, recognizing and separating ourselves from their evil practices.  17 Now this I say and testify in the Lord, that you must no longer walk as the Gentiles do, in the futility of their minds. 18 They are darkened in their understanding, alienated from the life of God because of the ignorance that is in them, due to their hardness of heart. 19 They have become callous and have given themselves up to sensuality, greedy to practice every kind of impurity. 20 But that is not the way you learned Christ! Ephesians 4:17-20 ESV.  Who are we to recognize who we fellowship with and whom we leave alone?   We are God’s children friends of Jesus (see James 4:4).   We believe God, and it is counted to us as righteousness.

Do you hear Jesus calling you?  Do you want to be free from your sins?  Do you want to find true happiness, peace and purpose in your life?  If the answer is yes to any of these questions please click the following link; http://www.admenu.com/calling.htm

37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40 ESV.

The Gospel Leads To Jesus, The Love For Others Will Lead To Life

 

“Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

 

Proverbs 28, Verse 1. “Sin makes men cowards. Whatever difficulties the righteous meet in the way of duty, they are not daunted.” Verse 28. ”When power is put into the hands of the wicked, wise men decline public business. If the reader will go diligently over this and the other chapters, in many places where at first he may suppose there is least of Christ, still he will find what will lead to him.” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading proverbs Chapter 28.

 

In today’s Feast the stingy and foolish are compared to the faithful wise.   25 A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the Lord will be enriched.  26 Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.Proverbs 28:25-26 (English Standard Version) ESV.   A wise and humble believer will be exalted by Jesus (see James 4:10). While a greedy person will lose all that they possess (see Proverbs 28:22).  Jesus said that the wise and faithful believer who loves their neighbor and Jesus is fulfilling God’s commandments.  37 And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:37-40 ESV.  We must love the sinner not judge them.  Faith in Jesus is useless without love (see 1 Corinthians 13:1-4).  It’s more important to tell a sinner what faith in Jesus does for them, than to tell them what the wages of their sin will get them.

What Are We In Need Of?

Jan. 25, 2014 – Proverbs 27

What Are We In Need Of?

 

For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live by faith.” Romans 1:17

 

Proverbs 27, Verse 1. “We know not what a day may bring forth. This does not forbid preparing for to-morrow, but presuming upon to-morrow. We must not put off the great work of conversion, that one thing needful.” Verse 23-27. We ought to have some business to do in this world, and not to live in idleness, and not to meddle with what we do not understand. We must be diligent and take pains. Let us do what we can, still the world cannot be secured to us, therefore we must choose a more lasting portion; but by the blessing of God upon our honest labours, we may expect to enjoy as much of earthly blessings as is good for us.” –  Matthew Henry Concise

Dear Saints,

 

 

Today we prayerfully continue our Feast reading proverbs Chapter 27.

 

In today’s Feast we are learning to depend on God for our daily needs.  Salvation and faith is our number one priority, knowing that God will provide for our daily needs.   25 When the grass is gone and the new growth appears and the vegetation of the mountains is gathered, 26 the lambs will provide your clothing, and the goats the price of a field.  27 There will be enough goats milk for your food, for the food of your household and maintenance for your girls.Proverbs 27:27-28 (English Standard Version) ESV.  Saints, have no need to fret or worry about their daily needs (see Matthew 6:25-34) because we know that Jesus will provide for us.  By the same token there is no need for us to worry about the future (see Matthew 6:34).  Our future is bright in the light of our Lord Jesus.  8 Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. Galatians 6:1 ESV.  You and I will stand secure living in our faith because our righteousness is in Jesus (see Romans 1:17).  And through Jesus we attain our freedom from sin.
