Why Did Jesus Say this about Abraham?

Abraham Saw My Day

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day: and he saw it, and was glad.” John 8:56

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
It is one of the most dramatic scenes in the Old Testament: Isaac, the promised son, was stretched out on an altar. His father Abraham lifted a gleaming knife into the sky, prepared to plunge it into the heart of his son. But then he heard a voice: “Abraham, Abraham, don’t harm the lad. I have provided a substitute.” Abraham looked—and there was a ram caught in a thicket. The Hebrew word means “a thicket of thorns.” His head was caught in the thorns. God said “Abraham, take the ram I have provided and sacrifice him instead.” That ram caught in a thicket, crowned with thorns, became the sacrifice that day in the place of the one who would have been sacrificed.

No wonder Jesus said, “Abraham saw My day and was glad.” God preached the gospel to Abraham long ago.

ACTION POINT:
Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son, Isaac, has always portrayed for us the Father’s willingness to sacrifice His only Son, the Lord Jesus. Thank Him again today for that holy sacrifice. “Jesus paid it all,” so we might have it all—eternal life, eternal joy—through Him.

John Kanzius Found a Way to Beat Cancer

Cancer Killing Machine: New Way to Fight Cancer & Win!

john kanziusFebruary 18 marks an important day for Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation, its donors and followers.  We remember John Kanzius, a common yet extraordinary man, who lost his battle with cancer on this day in 2009. John was a husband, father, friend, and radio broadcast engineer. Throughout his life, John never put limits on what he could accomplish or the problems he could solve in both his personal life and his career.

 

John’s educational background included study of electronics and electrical engineering at the Allegheny Technical Institute and the University of Pittsburgh; he did not complete a degreed program.  He spent his entire career in an area that fascinated him – the broadcasting industry.  Beginning with work in the high-power AM/FM/television engineering department of Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in Meadowlands, Pa., he gained notoriety in the engineering community by solving, with a fifty-cent part, an engineering phenomenon regarding high powered color television transmission distortion.

After leaving RCA, John embarked upon a venture in the management and ownership of broadcast properties.  These included WJET-TV, JET-102 FM, and WFGO-FM, all in Erie, Pennsylvania; WHOT-AM/FM in Youngstown, Ohio; WWOW-AM in Conneaut, Ohio; and KRRT-TV in San Antonio, Texas. For several years, WJET-TV was recognized by the American Broadcasting Company (ABC) for having the highest local ratings of any affiliate in the United States. Throughout three decades of station ownership and management, he made continuous improvements, always keeping the stations on the cutting edge of broadcast engineering. In 2000, John and his partner finalized the sale of their remaining businesses and then…retired!

Unfortunately, in 2002, a lifestyle of family, leisure, and golf immediately changed when John added “cancer patient” to his list of attributes; he was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia.  It was while receiving treatments that John noticed small children undergoing the same invasive and debilitating therapies that he was.  His heart grew heavy with sadness. Being the problem solver that he was, he thought to himself, “there has to be a better way!” And that thought was the humble beginning for the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment theory – a noninvasive, alternative cancer treatment that would not have harsh side effects; a drastic contrast to the current traditional cancer therapies that he was undergoing.

John knew the power of radiowaves. The same waves that carry music to our car stereos, and he knew these waves could heat metal at certain frequencies. Using a hot dog and pie pans from his wife’s kitchen, he created a research lab in his garage.  By inserting a metal probe into a hot dog and then by placing it in a radio field, John found the immediate area around the metal cooked while the rest of the specimen remained cold and unaffected.

Encouraged and full of hope, John began sharing his idea with doctors, manufacturers and the media. This simple device evolved into much more sophisticated machinery designed to prove his theory to the most demanding medical journals and professionals in the world.

Sadly, John died from complications of his own battle with cancer. However, Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation continues the research of John’s astonishing theory today in the state-of-the-art laboratories led by Dr. Steven Curley at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Dr. David Geller at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Dr. Dustin Kruse at University of California in Davis. Since John’s passing, the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment has been proven to destroy 100 percent of cancer cells with no damage to the surrounding healthy tissue in small laboratory animals. That is why many call his theory “the world’s most promising cancer treatment!”

Each and every day of the long, tedious journey, John’s legacy comes closer to a reality. His dream of “a better way” to treat cancer continues to inspire our committed researchers, chemists and doctors to aggressively prove that this same theory is safe and effective in large laboratory animals with the ultimate goal of reaching human trials.

Thank you, John! We believe “a better way” is possible. Together, we will change the world for all kids, young and old!

Forget Not the Wonderful Holy Spirit

By Charles H. Spurgeon, London’s Great Pastor, now in Heaven Nehemiah 9:20
Thy good Spirit.
Mr. Spurgeon
Mr. Spurgeon

Common, too common is the sin of forgetting the Holy Spirit. This is folly and ingratitude. He deserves well at our hands, for He is good, supremely good. As God, He is good essentially. He shares in the threefold ascription of Holy, holy, holy, which ascends to the Triune Jehovah. Unmixed purity and truth, and grace is He.

He is good benevolently, tenderly bearing with our waywardness, striving with our rebellious wills;

quickening us from our death in sin, and then training us for the skies as a loving nurse fosters her child. How generous, forgiving, and tender is this patient Spirit of God. He is good operatively. All His works are good in the most eminent degree:

He suggests good thoughts,

prompts good actions,

reveals good truths,

applies good promises,

assists in good attainments,

and leads to good results.

There is no spiritual good in all the world of which He is not the author and sustainer, and heaven itself will owe the perfect character of its redeemed inhabitants to His work. He is good officially; whether as Comforter, Instructor, Guide, Sanctifier, Quickener, or Intercessor, He fulfils His office well, and each work is fraught with the highest good to the church of God.

They who yield to His influences become good,

they who obey His impulses do good,

they who live under His power receive good.

Let us then act towards so good a person according to the dictates of gratitude. Let us revere His person, and adore Him as God over all, blessed for ever; let us own His power, and our need of Him by waiting upon Him in all our holy enterprises; let us hourly seek His aid, and never grieve Him; and let us speak to His praise whenever occasion occurs. The church will never prosper until more reverently it believes in the Holy Ghost. He is so good and kind, that it is sad indeed that He should be grieved by slights and negligences.

College of Contentment

By Charles H. Spurgeon / One of London’s Greatest!
Philippians 4:11
I have learned, in whatever state I am, therewith to be content.
Charles H Spurgeon
Charles H Spurgeon

These words show us that contentment is not a natural propensity of man. “Ill weeds grow apace.” Covetousness, discontent, and murmuring are as natural to man as thorns are to the soil. We need not sow thistles and brambles; they come up naturally enough, because they are indigenous to earth: and so, we need not teach men to complain; they complain fast enough without any education. But the precious things of the earth must be cultivated. If we would have wheat, we must plough and sow; if we want flowers, there must be the garden, and all the gardener’s care. Now, contentment is one of the flowers of heaven, and if we would have it, it must be cultivated; it will not grow in us by nature; it is the new nature alone that can produce it, and even then we must be specially careful and watchful that we maintain and cultivate the grace which God has sown in us. Paul says, “I have learned . . . to be content;” as much as to say, he did not know how at one time. It cost him some pains to attain to the mystery of that great truth. No doubt he sometimes thought he had learned, and then broke down. And when at last he had attained unto it, and could say, “I have learned in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content,” he was an old, grey-headed man, upon the borders of the grave-a poor prisoner shut up in Nero’s dungeon at Rome. We might well be willing to endure Paul’s infirmities, and share the cold dungeon with him, if we too might by any means attain unto his good degree. Do not indulge the notion that you can be contented with learning, or learn without discipline. It is not a power that may be exercised naturally, but a science to be acquired gradually. We know this from experience. Brother, hush that murmur, natural though it be, and continue a diligent pupil in the College of Content.

All Choices Have Consequences

CHOICES AND CONSEQUENCES

By Michael Guido / Now in Heaven

Guido pixFailure is never a welcome guest. Nor does one choose failure to be an associate or companion. Yet it is something that often invades our lives even though it is unwanted. Yet, from it we learn some of life s most valuable lessons.
In Psalm 21 David begins with shouts of praise: How the king rejoices in Your strength, O Lord…how he shouts with joy because You gave him victory…how You gave him a crown…how You preserved his life. Here we find David rejoicing and praising His Lord for the gracious gifts that He gave him. He praised God for granting him the desires of his heart and giving him victory over his enemies.
But notice carefully: he realized that the source of his strength, the joy of his victories, his golden crown and the preservation of his life all came from his Lord. He recognized God as his source of strength, survival and success. And in doing so, he gave thanks!
David learned from his mistakes. And wisely, when he came confident from his victories, he knew whom to thank. His victories came from the Lord.
God often allows us to experience the agony of defeat and the sorrow of disappointment to learn that we must rely on Him for everything, every day. In this Psalm David reminds us that his strength, joy, victory, rewards and protection all come from God. He learned from experience to trust God. What a great lesson for us.

Prayer: Help us, Lord, to realize that we can only expect victory if we look to You for our needs. In Jesus Name, Amen.

Scripture for Today: Psalm 21:1 The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord; And in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!
