Welcome to the Table of Family

Imagine coming to the table for a meal. The whole family is waiting and the announcement begins: “There’s no food. The cupboard is bare.” Last week (date of this teaching was August 5, 2012) there was a real announcement that in the United States over half (3/4) of the counties are in drought. In Oklahoma, […]

Welcome to the Table of God’s Best

We ought to always bring our best to the Lord. It is what He brought, when He brought Himself to this table, giving His life to give us life. When we think of the word best, let’s spell it this way: bring everything superior to Him. Thank God for He is the best. In Colossians […]

Welcome to the Table of God’s Garden

THE FIRST THING ELOHIM DID AFTER CREATION OF MAN WAS TO MAKE A HOME FOR HIM. HE MADE IT A GARDEN – A SEPARATE PLACE FROM THE REST OF CREATION. MAN WAS TO “DRESS” THE GARDEN – TO BEAUTIFY IT. IMAGINE THAT WITHIN ALL THE SCOPE OF THE LUSCIOUS GROUNDS, MAN WAS THE FINISHING TOUCH. […]

Welcome to the Table of God’s Truth

Welcome to God’s dinner table, so to speak. As we approach it, we realize that normally we all arrive initially at God’s table through one of its utensils: the fork in the road. That place where two sides converge and we have to decide which road to travel. If one road said: “dead end”, would […]

Welcome to the Table of Labor and Learning

WE ALL COME TO THE DINNER TABLE, WHETHER ON SUNDAY MEALS, HOLIDAYS OR SPECIAL OCCASIONS AND IT IS OBVIOUS THAT SOMEONE PREPARED THE TABLE AHEAD OF US.

Don’t Seat Yourself

In 2009, at a White House State Dinner, it was discovered that a man named Tareq Salahi and his wife were seen in pictures with V.P. Biden and others, even though they were not on the official invitation list. They had the help of Michele Jones, a defense department aide, who hinted prior to the […]

Welcome to the Table of Seasons

WE ARE BLESSED TO LIVE IN A STATE WITH ALL FOUR SEASONS. A SEASON IS A DIVISION IN TIME – A SUBDIVISION MARKED BY CHANGES IN WEATHER, ECOLOGY, AND HOURS OF DAYLIGHT. IT RESULTS FROM THE YEARLY REVOLUTION OF THE EARTH AROUND THE SUN AND THE LIFTING OF THE EARTH’S AXIS. NOTICE ITS USE IS […]

Welcome to the Table of Thanksgiving

Welcome to the table of thanksgiving. Our annual Thanksgiving holiday is almost upon us. We will each celebrate a little differently, perhaps, but the tradition of that table being turkey, dressing, potatoes, sweet potatoes, dinner rolls, and so forth, still strongly permeates our society. The purpose of the feast is as a national day of […]

Welcome to the Table of the King

WELCOME TO THE TABLE OF THE KING. IF, AS IN THE CASE OF ESTHER, THE KING PRESENTS THE SCEPTER, SO SHE CAN COME FORTH, WE SHOULD ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT WE ARE DRAWN BY THE LOVING KINDNESS OF THE KING OF KINGS, AS WE APPROACH HIS TABLE OF GRACE. MESSAGE: THE “A”MEN OF ADVENT – PART […]
