Malachi Prepares the Way for Jesus
Post Date: 2022-12-13 17:32:57 by Charles_Byrd
The lesson of Malachi reveals Gods love for his people. When the people ask for proof of Gods love, he reminds them of their election. The Jews had returned to Jerusalem from Babylon. They had listened to Gods prophets, Haggai and Zechariah. They rebuilt Gods temple. And then nothing happened. No Messiah. No great divine war against Israels enemies. No worldwide kingdom of God. None of the good things Haggai and Zechariah said would happen, happened. Click for Full Text!

At that time, declares the Lord, I will be the God of all the clans of Israel, and they shall be my people. Thus says the Lord: The people who survived the sword found grace in the wilderness; when Israel sought for rest, the Lord appeared to him from far away. I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore I have continued my faithfulness to you (Jer. 31:1-3). What a scene! Those words dripping with promise begin a chapter with hardly a parallel in all Scripture. And to hear them in their context! After so much rebuke from the iron prophet of the LORD (Jeremiah 1:18), for a people who would lose their homeland, their daily life, and their ...

One of these is not like the other. The home Synod of Constantinople in 448 condemned Eutyches as a heretic. The issues involved were directly relevant to subsequent councils at Chalcedon and beyond. Eutyches was not a theologian of any standing. He was a monk who held some standing in the monastic circles around Constantinople, having directed more than 300 monks over thirty years. He was a friend of Cyril, and an indefatigable supporter of the Alexandrine cause at the capitol. He had direct access to the emperors court. Click for Full Text!
‘A way to serve’: Organist honored for 70 years at same congregation
Post Date: 2022-12-08 20:50:17 by Charles_Byrd
On May 22, the congregation of Emmanuel Lutheran Church in Britton, Mich., honored Eileen Jones for 70 years of service as Emmanuels organist. The Rev. David McCarty, pastor of Emmanuel, has worked with Jones for the last eight of those years. Eileen is the epitome of a faithful servant of the Lord, McCarty said. This was my first congregational call, and Eileens support and encouragement, along with that of so many others, has helped enormously. Click for Full Text!

Prestonwood Baptist Church continues to receive backlash after a TikTok video of flying drummers and a massive LED wall flashing JESUS went viral. The video titled a Casual Worship Service in TX captured flying drummers traversing the ceiling of the Plano, Texas, megachurchs worship center suspended on cables. Tony Daussat, not a Prestonwood member, posted the video, which was shared over 34,000 times. Click for Full Text!
Dallas-area Pastor Matt Chandler Reinstated to Pulpit by Church Elders
Post Date: 2022-12-07 20:00:29 by Charles_Byrd
Dallas-area megachurch pastor Matt Chandler returned to the pulpit Sunday (Dec. 4) after a three-month leave of absence. The Village Churchs board of elders reinstated him following disciplinary actions for Chandlers inappropriate social media relationship with a woman who is not his wife. His congregation greeted his return with a standing ovation. In an email to the congregation obtained by Julie Roys, the elders told the church congregation Chandler had been diligently working through the development plan they gave him, including time spent in study and prayer, personal reflection, and multiple intensives with trusted outside experts. ...
Word and Sacrament: The marks of the church
Post Date: 2022-12-06 20:11:35 by Charles_Byrd
The LCMS seeks church fellowship with churches around the world who clearly confess and hold to the marks of the church. Having faith or being a pious person is not a sufficient mark upon which the church and its unity depend. Faith is unseen. The appearance of it can be faked, or it can contain errors. The true marks of the church are evident to all and provide sufficient grounds to identify the presence of true fellowship. As Luther notes, even when they are present but obscured by false teaching or belief, they still gather Christians. Article VII of the Augsburg Confession defines the marks of the church as the pure preaching of the ...
Old Testament: Isaiah 7:10-17 (Advent 4: Series A)
Post Date: 2022-12-05 18:01:34 by Charles_Byrd
This is a great text to take us one step deeper into trusting God during the season of Advent. First, some background information. The context for this section of scripture can be found in 2 Kings 16 where political and military trouble surrounds Ahaz in the year 735 BC. The Northern Kingdom together with Syria sought an alliance with Judah against Tiglath-Pileser III who was advancing with his Assyrian troops onto their lands. Israel had already suffered defeat from the Assyrians and knew they needed more help to resist them. So, with threats from the Assyrians and warnings that he had better capitulate to this coalition, Isaiah comes to offer Ahaz the most gracious alternate proposal from ...
Gospel: Matthew 1:18-25 (Advent 4: Series A)
Post Date: 2022-12-05 17:55:05 by Charles_Byrd
he Gospel reading for this last Sunday in Advent tells the other version of the Christmas story. Now the birth of Jesus took place in this way... (verse 18). Unlike Luke, Matthew makes no mention of a census or shepherds or multitudes of angels. Instead, he tells of a scandalous pregnancy, a quietly planned divorce, and a dream-induced change of plans. This is Christmas from Josephs point of view. We do not know much about Joseph. He was a descendent of David (ÅἱὸÂ ±Å¯´ son of David) and a good (´¯º±¹¿Â righteous) man. He also seems to have been thoughtful. He ...
Epistle: Romans 1:1-7 (Advent 4: Series A)
Post Date: 2022-12-05 17:21:26 by Charles_Byrd
t seems as if we are working backwards after hearing the pericope lesson from Romans 15:4-13 during the second week in Advent. We saw how Saint Paul concluded his epistle by revisiting the principle theses laid out in Romans 1:4-5. This week we go to that lesson. Why? Why read the beginning after the end, as it were? Simple: Romans 1:1-6 proclaims the Gospel of Christmas with power to bring to a crescendo our collective anticipation for the Advent of our King and Savior, the Messiah of God, Jesus. Verse 1 introduces Paul, a joyful and willing servant of King Jesus. He is an apostle, which means he has a direct commissioning, a calling from the King to speak with the authority of the King, ...
Church Fathers on Christmas: St. Augustine
Post Date: 2022-12-05 16:59:27 by Charles_Byrd
That day, Christmas, is called the birthday of the Lord on which the Wisdom of God manifested himself as a speechless Child and the Word of God wordlessly uttered the sound of a human voice. His divinity, although hidden, was revealed by heavenly witness to the Magi and was announced to the shepherds by angelic voices. With yearly ceremony, therefore, we celebrate this day which saw the fulfillment of the prophecy: Truth is sprung out of the earth: and justice hath looked down from heaven (Ps. 84:12). Truth, eternally existing in the bosom of the Father, has sprung from the earth so that he might exist also in the bosom of a mother. Truth, holding the world in place, has sprung ...

In many COVID hot spots, a pattern: High concentrations of white evangelicals
Post Date: 2021-07-22 02:52:11 by Gatlin
In many COVID hot spots, a pattern: High concentrations of white evangelicals By Jack Jenkins Its clear that the pattern is more white evangelical Protestants equals lower vaccination rates, said Natalie Jackson, research director at the Public Religion Research Institute. As COVID-19 cases surge again, two things are true about many counties considered hot spots: Vaccination rates are low and white evangelical Protestant populations are high, according to a new data analysis. Concern about vaccine hesitancy or outright anti-vaccine sentiment among white evangelicals has persisted since at least March, when, according to a poll from Pew Research Center, those who ...
