Genesis 21:12 "AndGod said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad & because of thy bondwoman--in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearten unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called."
"He that sitters in the heavens shall laugh---the Lord shall hv them in derision. Be wise now therefore O ur kings, be instructed ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear & rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son lest he be angry & ye perish fr the way when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trustin him!!" Ps 2-
All glory to God! "The Word was made flesh & dwelt among us & we beheld His glory--the glory of the only begotten Son of God." Thank you Father for sending your Son. Thank you Jesus for coming to give your life as a sacrifice for our fallen race. Thank you Father & Jesus for sending the Holy Spirit to be our Comforter & to guide us into allllllo
Jesus said, Go ye into all the world & make disciples of every nation baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son & the Holy Ghost." However we do that by word, deed or godly living our faith will be shared---others will see ur good works & glorify the Father in heaven.
Why the vitriol. I commend President Bush for his faith. Don't judge God's servant " to his own master he standeth or falleth." We need to take the beam out of our own eye before taking the "mote" out of our brother's eye. He that is without sin let him cast the first stone!!
"Not everyone that saith unto me Lord, Lord shall enter intto the kingdom of heaven but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord hv we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you, depart fr me ye that work iniquity. Sobering words fr our Lord. Our words mean nothing to God unless backed up by action! God alone knows the heart & our motives. I pray for our president.
God is in control of the universe not man. The world will endure & be inhabited by man until He gives the order that a new heaven & a new earth comes into existence wherein dwells righteousness!! Oh the foolishness of those who chase after the wind & think otherwise--what arrogance to think man is in control. Yes, I do my part to be a good steward but God is in control!!
"Upon this Rock (Christ) I will build my church! (1 Corinthians 10:4). I take the word of God as my guide & not tradition or man made religion. Be people of the Book & with guidance of the Holy Spirit you will walk in God's truth!
