THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: Therefore is the anger of the Lord kindled against his people, and he hath stretched forth his hand against them, and hath smitten them: and the hills did tremble, and their carcases were torn in the midst of the streets. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still. And he will lift up an ensign to the nations from far, and will hiss unto them from the end of the earth: and, behold, they shall come with speed swiftly: None shall be weary nor stumble among them; none shall slumber nor sleep; neither shall the girdle of their loins be loosed, nor the latchet of their shoes be broken: Whose arrows are sharp, and all their bows bent, their horses’ hoofs shall be counted like flint, and their wheels like a whirlwind: Their roaring shall be like a lion, they shall roar like young lions: yea, they shall roar, and lay hold of the prey, and shall carry it away safe, and none shall deliver it. And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof. (Isaiah 5:25-30)

Text: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:1-2)

Tweet: It’s not your job to find God’s will for your life. It’s God’s job to reveal it to you. It’s your job to be committed to do it even before you know what it is. The prior sacrifice of your will to God’s will leads to His perfect will being proven in your life.

THE TWEETED BIBLE

Text: But the righteousness which is of faith speaketh on this wise, Say not in thine heart, Who shall ascend into heaven? (that is, to bring Christ down from above:) Or, Who shall descend into the deep? (that is, to bring up Christ again from the dead.) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Romans 10:6-13)

Text: The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. (Psalm 34:18 NIV)

Text: The Lord is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. (Psalm 145:18)

Tweet: Christ is as near as a prayer and Heaven within speaking distance to all who pray.

Text: Moreover the Lord saith, Because the daughters of Zion are haughty, and walk with stretched forth necks and wanton eyes, walking and mincing as they go, and making a tinkling with their feet: Therefore the Lord will smite with a scab the crown of the head of the daughters of Zion, and the Lord will discover their secret parts. In that day the Lord will take away the bravery of their tinkling ornaments about their feet, and their cauls, and their round tires like the moon, The chains, and the bracelets, and the mufflers, The bonnets, and the ornaments of the legs, and the headbands, and the tablets, and the earrings, The rings, and nose jewels, The changeable suits of apparel, and the mantles, and the wimples, and the crisping pins, The glasses, and the fine linen, and the hoods, and the vails. And it shall come to pass, that instead of sweet smell there shall be stink; and instead of a girdle a rent; and instead of well set hair baldness; and instead of a stomacher a girding of sackcloth; and burning instead of beauty. (Isaiah 3:16-24)

Tweet: Strutting, swaying, and seducing women will be put to shame. Their stylish raiment replaced with sackcloth, their jingling jewelry with shackling chains, the scent of their perfume with the stench of putridity, and their beautiful hairstyles with baldheadedness.

Text: But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. (1 Corinthians 15:10)

Tweet: Many supposed recipients of God’s grace raise their hand today in the worship of God, but refuse to lift a finger in the work of God.

Text: The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah. (Isaiah 1:1)

Tweet: Isaiah, whose name means “the salvation of the Lord,” is called the “Messianic Prophet,” for he prophesied more of the coming Messiah than any other Old Testament Prophet. All God’s prophets preach Christ; those who don’t are certainly no prophet of God.

Text: And David the king came and sat before the Lord, and said, Who am I, O Lord God, and what is mine house, that thou hast brought me hitherto? (1 Chronicles 17:16)

Tweet: The story is told of an elderly man who continued to sit solitarily in a sanctuary long after the service had ended. When finally asked by the pastor if he was alright, the old gentleman simply responded, “Yes; I’m just sitting here looking at Him, while He looks at me.” Truth is; most Christians today are too uncomfortable to sit and stare at God, while He stares at them. Are you?

Tweet: Sacred sittings turn prayer closets into palaces, but the spurning of such solitude is a sure sign of one’s apprehensiveness over a divine audience.
