• Awakest, Thou That Slumbereth!

    You can walk through life with no consciousness of your real spiritual condition, in a dream-like state, believing that you are what you are not. You can be active in your church, praying, fasting, studying, and all the while be sleeping spiritually. How do I know? It happened to me.

  • Made in God's Image

    One of the characteristics of man in the last days is that he will be high-minded. We must not seek after the wisdom of men. Our goal must be to redeem the times we are in and seek God while He may be found so that we are conformed into His image and prepared for every good work.

  • What Was Crucified at Calvary?

    We know that Jesus came as the second Adam to crucify the old sin nature which man was born with as a result of the fall. However, Scripture also makes plain what exemplifies that nature and shows exactly what was crucified on the cross.

  • The Ol' Switcheroo

    Don't think that a bunch of activity means you are close to the Lord. Oftentimes, a bunch of fervor in religious circles is a cover for those who are actually running away from Christ. They are a lot of good - but dead - works.

  • Gentleness

    When God changes your heart into a reflection of His own and grants you new life in Him by His Spirit, the natural result is gratitude

  • Ishmael Shall Be Cast Out

    What God decrees is not up for human debate or input. God is not concerned with humanistic perspectives of "fairness". He does exactly what He wants to do, for He is sovereign. Further, even His enemies can only do what He allows and likewise serve to fulfill His purposes.

Sympathy From the Devil

"And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness." I John 5:19

These are days that will test what we think we know and believe.  The "whole world" lies in wickedness.
wickedness:  Greek word pon─ôros meaning full of labours, annoyances, hardships; of an evil nature or condition; bringing toils, annoyances, perils; of a time full of peril to Christian faith and steadfastness; causing pain and trouble.
Do we believe that? Do we believe that everything of the world is grounded in evil?

"But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them." II Corinthians 4:3-4

Do we truly believe that Satan is the god of this world? That every single world system is under his jurisdiction and infuence?

If we believe the word of God, then isn't it illogical to seek sympathy from the devil?  Why seek retibution, understanding, compassion, equality, and justice from the devil?  Why appeal for mercy to the one who is determined to steal from, kill. and destroy you? Why expect Satan to do what is right? What sense does that make? Absolutely none.

When I Was A Child...

"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things." I Corinthians 13:11

Recently, my husband was speaking with my father and said to him, "I want to apologize for not originally asking for your daughter's hand in marriage."   My father was surprised, and this began a deeper conversation between the two.

As my father relayed the conversation to me, I recalled that period in my life.  I even remember my grandmother meeting my then fiance and saying, "I approve.  I give my blessing for this marriage."  I looked at her strangely and said, "Ok." because we were already engaged.  I wondered to myself, "Why did she think I needed her approval or blessing?"  I think upon this perspective now in shame.

This is the sort of ignorant blindness many young adults walk in.  Having perhaps been under the tutelage of a parent for most of your life, you begin to equate maturity (being fully developed) with self-reliance (depending on yourself alone for everything).  To such persons, doing things your way becomes your proof that you are are grown...and nothing could be further from the truth.

Such is the attitude of a child - no matter the age of the person - and it is rampant in the church. People are running around as renegades trying to "prove" that they know the Lord by going rogue. "They don't need anyone but Jesus." they claim, except it is clear by that attitude that they do not yet have Him. While they wear their independence as a badge of honor, all it does is make obvious that they have yet to know the ways of the Lord.

Doors in Life

The following is taken from the Lavender Lens blog.

Doors in Life

"I know thy works: behold, I have set before you an open door, and no man can shut it:for thou has little strength, and had kept  my word and hast not denied my name." -Revelation 3:8

We serve a God that opens doors that no one can shut, and shuts doors no one can open.

So if we have an open door we are to stay there till the Lord moves us. Honestly, it can be hard sometimes to tell if the "door" to something is opend or closed, whether we are suppose to go right or left. But even when it seems like we are all alone and don't know where to go, we must remember the Lord will guide our steps (Prov. 16:9). As long as we follow the Lord and seek Him he will be our guide.

In Need of Grace?

Grin and Bear it

This past summer, I was visiting family and walking up the main street in town.  The sidewalk was just big enough for two people to walk side by side.  Typically, people walking down the sidewalk made room for each other.  If they were walking with someone and saw another coming in the opposite direction, one would move over so that there was room for all to pass.

However, I noticed that not everyone did.  Some would walk with others down the street and continued to do so, even as they saw people coming towards them.  When I encountered such persons, I would automaticaly step on to the grass or street so that they could pass.  In response, they did not say thank you nor even give a smile of acknowledgement or apology; they just kept walking as if I was not even there.

After this happened for the third time, I realized in shock that these people expected me to move out of their way.  They felt entitled and had no consideration for others. They would just bogart their way and expected everyone else to just get out of their way.  Even worse was the realization that I instinctively deferred to these persons every time, without hesitation. Why was I so diffident?

The next time I saw such persons, I did not move.  I did not sidestep into the street.  I stood my ground right where I was. Some eventually moved over so that we all could pass each other.  Some never did, even bumping into me and looking at me as if I had lost my mind for not moving out of their way. I began to wonder why some - by their behavior - seemed to believe that they were worth more than others, while such as myself - by our behavior - seemed to believe that we were worth nothing.
