READ and HEED
READ AND HEED,
MESSAGE FROM SCM 3/20/2020
We will from time to time be sending out short messages in which we pray you will find a help in this time of confusion surrounding the Coronavirus. It is evident that many of us will have time on our hands and looking for something to occupy that time as we are asked to stay home, and as many churches are not having services for the next few weeks. What could be better than reading God’s Word; the Study of God’s Word; and Praying? We hope you will read this, study the Scriptures, take heed, and pray! We call it a short Bible Study, something to READ AND HEED! Read these statements, then take Heed as to what they say!
1. God knows what is happening, this has not taken Him by surprise. Proverbs 15:3 The eyes of the LORD are in every place, beholding the evil and the good.
2. God has warned us through His Word that these days would come.
Mt 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers’ places.
3. From history, we understand mankind will not for the most part heed what God says and does.
Ec 1:9-11 The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was
before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.
4. God never sends judgement without first giving a warning. He has warned us through His written Word and the preaching of His Word.
Amos 3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
5. There are a few who will heed, Are you one of them?
1Ti 4:16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
Our prayer is while you have time on your hands, study God’s Word, knowing He is in control, He has a plan, you are in His plan! We will be glad to try to answer any questions you may have; just send us an email and we will do our best to get back with you soon.
