Thoughts of the Day

A Berean’s Breakfast on Facebook @comequicklylord

ReFrain, RePent…ReFresh!

Many think the word repent means “to get your act together” or to “get religion” or “fly straight”; as if we could. Repentance requires taking in a whole new point of view; Looking at it God’s way. God simply asks us to turn. This is the way we accept His gift. When we do, certain outcomes are promised.
If we don’t, or we “turn back”, alternate outcomes are promised. Luke 13:3b (NIV) “But unless you repent, you too will all perish.” [This is often termed the “Turn or Burn” passage.]

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.
Profitable… Meaning all that is necessary and helpful for a joyful, fruitful, and triumphant Christian life, whenever in history and wherever in this world in any culture one my live. Mighty Counselor!! Isaiah 9:6 To whom shall you turn…

Isaiah 55:6-9 Seek the LORD while He may be found;
Call upon Him while He is near.

7Let the wicked forsake his way
And the unrighteous man his thoughts;
And let him return to the LORD,
And He will have compassion on him,
And to our God,
For He will abundantly pardon.

8“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.

9“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.

Things are going to get much darker soon..


A Berean’s Breakfast.. Soon, they may put you to death for the Truth, but they can’t “kill your spirit,” but you will be set free!! The Truth Shall Make You Free!! 31Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Maranatha!

It’s Never too Late…

Today, if you are thinking that your whole life has offered nothing to the LORD and that at his appearing you might say, “Father, I have done very little (or nothing) and came to you very late in my life, with little or no fruit to show you.” Just remember the thief on the cross who in the very last hour, said, “Lord when you come into your kingdom, remember me.” Jesus said, “Today you will be with me in paradise.” What fruit he might have thought or work had he done to deserve such GRACE! Who could he effect on his way to eternity, it was too late, right? He might have responded… “I have done nothing and shared with no one! And Jesus might have responded, “Your confession will be a testimony forever in my Word and will save many!” If you haven’t lived well, you can still spend the little time left to tell of His Mercy and Grace for a wretched sinner like you and me!!

A Berean’s Breakfast…

“My way or the Highway.” An old saying that many of us probably used once or twice. Never gave it a lot of thought, except to mean I was in charge. I see know, like so many idioms, sayings derived from scripture with an earthly twist. Matt 7:13 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. 14 But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
People say that all roads lead to God. Only in the sense that, Isa 45:23 says, “By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear.”
All will fall on their face before the Lord & Savior, when absent from the body, finding themselves “present with the Lord” and cry “my Lord and my God” in response they will hear either, “well done my good and faithful serve,” or “be gone, I never knew you!” Matt 25:23
John 17:3 This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. God’s judgement will come upon them, “He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. 9They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might… 2 Thes 1:8
Acts 4:10-12 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. 11This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. 12Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Summary adapted from -The Second Coming-, by John MacArthur


1. The Promise of God Demands It

The Old Testament is full of Messianic promise–that promised is its main focus. From beginning (Genesis 3:15) to end (Malachi 4:2), the entire Old Testament is filled with prophecies of the coming Deliverer–at least 333 distinct promises, by one count.

Of the more than 100 prophecies dealing with the first advent of Christ, all of them were fulfilled precisely, literally. His riding on a donkey, the parting of his garments, the piercing of His hands and feet, and the vivid prophecies of His rejection by men in Isaiah 53–all these might have been interpreted symbolically by Old Testament scholars before Christ. But the New Testament record repeatedly reports that such things were fulfilled in the most literal sense, so “that the Scriptures of the prophets might be fulfilled” (Matthew 26:56; cf. 2:15; 4:14-16; 8:17; 12:17-21; 13:35; 21:4-5; 27:35; John 12:38; 15:25; 19:24, 28)

Scripture says God “cannot lie” and that He will not change His mind (Numbers 23:19Titus 1:2). What He has promised, He will do. The truthfulness of the Bible is at stake in the Second Coming.

2. The Teaching of Christ Demands It

Christ’s earthly teaching was filled with references to His Second Coming (Matthew 24Luke 21). When He was on trial for His life, Jesus defended His own deity with a bold declaration of the Second Coming in the most triumphant terms. He told the High Priest, “You will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven” (Mark 14:62).

On the night of His betrayal, Christ told the disciples, “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself” (John 14:2-3). Not only is the credibility of God at stake in the Second Coming, but so is the credibility of His Son. If Jesus doesn’t return, He’s a liar.

3. The Testimony of the Holy Spirit Demands It

Since “God … cannot lie” (Titus 1:2), His promise guarantees Christ’s return. Jesus is truth incarnate (John 14:6); so His teaching also infallibly confirms the fact of the Second Coming. And the Holy Spirit, who is called “the Spirit of truth” (John 14:17; 15:26), also testifies of the Second Coming of Christ through the New Testament writers.

Whether the apostle Paul (1 Corinthians 1:4-7Philippians 3:20Colossians 3:41 Thessalonians 4:16-17; etc.), the apostle Peter (1 Peter 1:131 Peter 5:42 Peter 3), or the apostle John (1 John 3:2), again and again, through the inerrant Scriptures, the Holy Spirit adds His witness to that of the Father and the Son–Jesus is coming.

4. The Program for the Church Demands It

God is currently “taking from among the Gentiles a people for His name” (Acts 15:14) and gathering His elect into one great body, the church. The church’s role is to be like a pure bride for God’s own Son, ready to be presented to Him at His Second Coming.

Paul uses that wedding imagery in 2 Corinthians 11:2: “I am jealous for you with godly jealousy; for I betrothed you to one husband, that to Christ I might present you as a pure virgin.” Marriage is a beautiful metaphor that pictures Christ’s love and care for His church (Matthew 25Ephesians 5:25-27Revelation 19:6-9). And that’s why we can be certain He will return to claim her, just as He promised (John 14:2-3). He will come back to get His bride.

5. The Corruption in the World Demands It

The world is a very wicked place, and when the “Son of Man [comes] in the glory of His Father with His angels … [He] will recompense every man according to his deeds” (Matthew 16:27). “An hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs shall hear His voice, and shall come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment” (John 5:28-29).

That blessed hope of every believer (Titus 2:13) is the terror of the world. For unbelievers, His coming means immediate, impartial judgment (1 Thessalonians 1:7-10Jude 1:14-15Revelation 19:11-16); for believers–unmitigated joy! Jesus must return in order to execute just retribution on sinners and carry out the judgment He has promised.

6. The Future of Israel Demands It

In Paul’s day Gentiles were coming into the church in greater numbers than Jewish converts, and in Romans 11, Paul reminded them, “You, being a wild olive tree, were grafted in among them and became a partaker with them of the rich root of the olive tree” (v. 17). But the time is coming when the natural branches will be grafted back into the olive tree (vv. 23-24), a phenomenon that Paul expressly connected with the return of Christ (v. 26). That is the day when Israel will mourn over the One whom they pierced (Zechariah 12:10), and God will save them all (Romans 11:26).

7. The Vindication of Christ Demands It

It is inconceivable that the last public view the world would have of Jesus Christ would be that of a bleeding, dying, crucified criminal, covered with blood, spit, and flies, hanging naked in the Jerusalem twilight. Did you realize that after His resurrection, He never appeared in a public venue before unbelievers? Plenty of believers saw Him, touched Him, spoke to Him, and gave unanimous testimony that He was risen from the dead. But there is no record that unbelievers ever saw Him.

But the unbelieving world will see His glory displayed to everyone. Scripture says, “Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him” (Hebrews 9:28; cf. Matthew 24:27). The Savior who was humiliated, taunted, and put to death in a public display of humanity’s hatred of God will return as conquering Lord in view of the entire world (Luke 21:25-27). And every eye will see Him (Revelation 1:7).

8. The Destruction of Satan Demands It

Satan, though an already-defeated foe as far as Christians are concerned, still exercises a kind of dominion over this world (John 12:31John 14:30John 16:112 Corinthians 4:4Ephesians 2:2Ephesians 6:121 John 5:19). But Christ is the only rightful ruler of this world, and when He returns, He will overthrow and destroy Satan completely.

In Revelation 5, when Christ receives the seven-sealed scroll, the title deed of the earth, He unleashes judgment with the crack of each seal (Revelation 6). The seal judgments give way to the judgment of the seven trumpets (Revelation 8); the trumpet judgments lead to the judgment of the seven bowls (Revelation 16). Finally, after one last-ditch effort by Satan to retain his unlawful dominion over the earth, Christ Himself returns to vanquish the foe–He chains him, casts him into a bottomless pit, and finally confines him to an eternal lake of fire (Revelation 19). With that, Christ’s victory over Satan the usurper is complete.

9. The Hope of the Saints Demands It

Only Christ’s glorious, triumphant return can fulfill the hope of the saints–every true believer longs for that day. Paul characterizes Christians as those who “love his appearing” (2 Timothy 4:8). The apostle John says, “Now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is” (1 John 3:2). The return of Christ will instantly usher in the fullness of our glorification.

John then adds these words: “And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure” (v. 3). This is the test of a healthy eschatology: Is your hope a sanctifying influence on your soul? Are you looking beyond the commotion of this world with the realization that you could soon meet Christ face to face, and are you preparing your heart and soul for that? Are you eager and watchful? Are you filled with joyful hope and expectation? That is the attitude to which Scripture calls us.

The Second Coming is not supposed to make you stop what you’re doing to wait for the Lord’s return. And neither should it motivate you to focus all your attention on the events and political developments of this world. Instead, it should prompt you to holiness as you direct your heart toward Christ, whose coming every believer anticipates with joy.

Eric Metaxas – Faith Without Works is DEAD 

Godspeak Calvary Chapel Thousand Oaks



We do not “earn our way to Heaven,” but accept this Free gift from God when we serve in gratitude for what He has done for us. I am justifed by His death and resurrection because the Father is “Satisfied,” with His payment at the cross. There is nothing you can add to it! 


Connect With Great Teachings

There is a pethora of great teachings on the internet and Godspeak and others like Kindred Community Church are leading the way… I will post and share those who have never stopped defending the Faith in this attack we are experiencing…

Godspeak in Southern California was and is my home church and Pastor Rod McCoy has been a trailblazer over this pandemic disaster without apology. Here is another freind of the ministry…

Another favorite teaching that reminds us who we are in Christ…


Missions… Go F.I.S.H.

We believe God’s word therefore it’s our mission to, “Go into the World…” and; F.I.S.H. for men:

Find people in the midst of their need.
nitiate a relationship with them.
erve them as Christ serves the Church.
elp them find hope for eternity.

In Mark 16:15 Jesus said “Go into  all the  world”. In Matthew 28:19, 20 Jesus said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” It’s our desire to obey our Lord’s command by joining with Him to make disciples. At Cornerstone we believe a disciple to be an individual who has: Placed their faith in Christ alone as Lord and Savior, has turned from a lifestyle of sin, is denying self, and is seeking wholeheartedly to fulfill all Christ’s commands as they strive to become like Him. We believe that being a true disciple of Christ is life long process!

As a non-denominational ministry, in other words, we are not handed down doctrine from, or governed by a church hierarchy. We have no creed other than the Word of God.
