Just Repent

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Isaiah 13:19 Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms, the pride and glory of the Babylonians, will be overthrown by God like Sodom and Gomorrah. O-bservation: Isaiah, the prophet of God, predicted that just like Sodom and Gomorrah, Babylon's great nation/city would fall. Nebuchadnezzar was a ruthless king. What he built in Babylon was beyond description. This great king built the city into an art, literature, and science center. It became the splendor of the Middle East and the envy of the Assyrians. Yet Babylon became so full of itself that it imploded. In one night, under...

Spiritual Leaders Must Lead The Way

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Joel 1:13a,b Put on sackcloth, you priests, and mourn; wail, you who minister before the altar. Come, spend the night in sackcloth, you who minister before my God. O-bservation: The prophet Joel wrote this during the time of Nebuchadnezzar’s rule in Babylon. It most likely was just before God's impending judgement upon Judah at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar. In fact, in 586 BC the powerful king burned Jerusalem and the temple to the ground.

Our Only Message

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Matthew 4:17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.” O-bservation: Jesus had been baptized in water, had been tempted by the devil in the wilderness after forty days of fasting, and had just learned that His cousin, John the Baptist, had been imprisoned.

When TROUBLE Is At The Door

S. O. A. P. Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional! S-cripture: Zephaniah 2:3a Seek the Lord, all you humble of the land, you who do what he commands. O-bservation: There was a time in Judah's history when they had reached the "Tipping Point" of unrighteousness as a nation. The Lord said, through His Prophet Zephaniah, "Before My wrath comes upon you, seek me, those of you who have lived a humble and holy life." Then the Lord said in effect, "Perhaps you will be sheltered when the TROUBLE comes" (v. 3c). A-pplication: Throughout history, when calamity comes in any culture in the form of War, Terrorism, or Natural...
