Mundy's Quote for the Day

Mundy's Quote for the Day
Be very careful how you treat people when you are in good health and have the necessities of this world. Before you can blink your eyes ... all can be lost: Health and worldlypossessions.
For that same person that you looked down upon, maybe the one to care for you in your infirmities. Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy

Sunday School Lesson, Outline

September 7 Lesson 1
A VISION OF THE FUTURE
DEVOTIONAL READING: Jeremiah 29:10–14BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: Jeremiah 30JEREMIAH 30:1–3, 18–22
1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,
2 Thus speaketh the LORD God of Israel, saying, Write thee all the words that I have spoken unto thee in a book.
3 For, lo, the days come, saith the LORD, that I will bring again the captivity of my people Israel and Judah, saith the LORD: and I will cause them to return to the land that I gave to their fathers, and they shall possess it.

18 Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I will bring again the captivity of Jacob’s tents, and have mercy on his dwelling places; and the city shall be build-ed upon her own heap, and the palace shall remain after the manner thereof.
19 And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.

International Sunday School Lesson

LessonSeptember 7, 2014A Vision of the FutureJeremiah 30This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the August 31 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Sam E. Stone  Even while the people of Israel were living as exiles in Babylon, they still received encouragement and hope from the Lord. In this month’s study we focus on the messages God sent through the prophet Jeremiah. James E. Smith pointed out that the material in chapters 30-33 was not part of a public discourse (see Jeremiah 30:2). “In written form these chapters must have been an encouragement to the captives during the long years of exile in Babylon.” Even while the nation suffered punishment for their sins, the prophet held out hope for the future of God’s people.
Message TransmissionJeremiah 30:1, 2
This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord. This refrain is repeated t…

God Rides to BattleJoel 1:1–2:21; Acts 7:1–53; Job 18:1–21
God is good, but in the words of C.S. Lewis, “He is not tame.” When it comes time for evil to be purged from the world, He is not timid, and when He acts, He rarely holds back. We see such a scene prophesied concerning the Day of Yahweh—the day He will return to the earth as Christ—in Joel 2:1–11.
“Blow the trumpet in Zion, and sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of Yahweh is coming—it is indeed near. A day of darkness and gloom, a day of cloud and thick darkness, like the dawn spreads on the mountains, a great and strong army! There has been nothing like it from old, and after it nothing will be again for generations to come” (Joel 2:1–2).

When God charges into battle, He seizes control of all that must be yielded so His purpose is not hindered. He then performs great and mighty deeds on behalf of His people. As Joel says, “There has been nothing like it.” So …
