A frontlet is something taken from the Old Testament. Some OT believers would literally tie little boxes called 'frontlets' around their foreheads. "Therefore you should lay up these words in your heart and in your soul...may they be as frontlets between your eyes." Deut.11:18 Inside these boxes were reminders; mostly scripture readings and/or things to remind them of God. These devotions are based on this coming week's scripture readings and are intended to both remind you of God, receive the blessing of His Word (for it never returns void-Isaiah 55:11) and prepare your heart and mind for this, His Word for this Sunday.

TITLE: Which Gospel Do You Live By
"But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach a gospel other than we preached to you, let him be eternally condemned." Galatians.1:8
A different Gospel! Could Paul mean, "There's many ways to heaven, not just one." (see John 14:6) or, "Mary was sinless and a co-redemptress!" or "Joseph Smith was a prophet who gave us additional scriptures equal to the Bible." or "If you're a good person you'll go to heaven?" The Bible says, "There's a way that seems right unto a man but leads to destruction." That way would be following these different gospels. Our one true Gospel (in a nutshell); "For God so loved the world that He gave His only-begotten Son, and whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16) There is no other Gospel by which we can be saved.
Ours is a world of subtlety and deception and the enemy is a master at both. Using subliminal messages through such things as TV, movies, music, and print, he can lull the unaware into believing just about any different gospel. Once "hooked," the less subtle and more blatant he can be. For example; "God is Dead!" Time magazine cover; April 8, 1966. However, God's Spirit moves us to search the scriptures. Like modern-day Bereans, we use them as a litmus test for what's out there while God's Spirit teaches us 'all things!' Praise God for His gift; ears to hear and eyes to see His one, true Gospel!
Heavenly Father, give us discerning hearts that we may hear Your Word, believe and ever follow Your Will, In Jesus Name, Amen.
