@US Speaking of Noah I was looking for a book I knew I once had in my possession and found another 'General Directions for a Comfortable Walking With God' by Robert Bolton. It begins with Gen 6:8,9

The Lord has had my mind much in Gen 6 lately and so though I remember picking the book up before, it didn't impact me as it did last night. It was so weighty that one page was enough to sleep on and this morning it was really thought provoking as I read on.

Small sample:

"Doctrine: The servants of God are men of singularity. I mean not in respect of any fantasticalness of zeal or turbulency of faction, truly so called; but in respect of abstinence from sin, purity of heart and holiness of life."

He then gives 6 reasons for this doctrine supported too well from Scripture to deny. I'm going to have to give a serious consideration to his six points this Lord's Day

He did say in pt.5 Methinks worldly wisdom would rather wonder that anyone is won unto God, then cry out and complain, Is it possible there should be so few?

Just Noah's and his family, now that is a few!

I'm not singling you out for any reason, it's just I've been thinking of judgment all day and you mentioned Noah.

Good Lord's day and Good night

My grandparents farmed, raised cattle, gardened, raised honey bees, fruit trees, chickens, eggs and my summers were the best memory for a boy in a west Texas city wishing it could be Dallas, ugh.
My paternal grandfather was an orphan. He lived on a small piece of property that would have made pennned proud, fits her description of the ideal.

He grew up being farmed out for labor and his delight was the glory of creation on the farm. As a little girl I'd listen for hours about his love for the earth and his boyhood memories of farm adventures. My grandmother was the domestic par excel lance. She cooked, baked, canned, had a root cellar, dried flowers, fed hobo's, stray dogs, cats and tamed out door criters. The best of my family life was at their house. It was her death that God used to draw me at least where he began the process.

I wish for all children a chance to visit a grandparent's farm, if they don't have their own.

Local chickens, on small farms here that I know of, have been disease free but not too productive, been waiting for the pouletts to start laying for some time. The best price of eggs here is $2 that's the poor local farmer. God reigns over agriculture on all scales.

@ Lurker Yes, I've spent some time in Deut.32 and just looked at Romans 15:10

I have continued to consider the verse with the helps I have; related to the original language. Also found an interesting outline in a study Bible of Isa. 13:1-27:13. The main part was fearful judgment but in Isa 14:1-3 mercy & 14:24-32 deliverance only for the Israel of God. It saw v.4-23 the burden of Babylon (King.)

While working, listened to a young man on Isa.13:1-16 I must say, there were a number of positions he held (that I could not support) which affected what he said in a general manner. I am an exclusive psalmist and therefore he didn't begin well with me. I am not an Amil and the fact that he was seemed to influence the way he thought about the day of the Lord, in part.

Though he did not go into a verse by verse exposition he had a general sense that this was a very sobering and fearful portion of Scripture reminding me of what J Renwick called the 'terror of the Lord'. The young man was consistent with what he believed. He was however sober and left none thinking that sin was a light matter. He made one statement and it was very relative to other threads here in my mind.

O to be Phil. 3:9 found..

Job 28:28

The "man more precious than fine gold" is Christ Paul preached. The KJV gives the sense God intended.
Isa.13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

The original Hebrew gives the sense God intended. What He intends to reveal and to whom by his Word and Spirit is according to His Sovereign good pleasure.

I read your post and the prophets you quote speaking of Christ to come. There is no greater treasure than Jesus Christ freely offered to every nation in the gospel.

However, I reread the text in context and there were a couple of verses that came to my attention. I do not know the Hebrew, I compared Scripture with Scripture. Then looked at the Geneva Notes and TSK from e-sword all of which led me to disagree with your interpretation of this specific text.

My conclusion related to v. 1-5,17

17 Behold, I will stir up the Medes against them, which shall not regard silver; and as for gold, they shall not delight in it.

I believe the whole of the chapter speaks to the fact that God was intent on the destruction of Babylon. His providential instruments, the Medes were not moved by gold or silver v. 17 from their fulfilling of God's decree v. 1-5

Some reactions point to the fact that many Christians think inside rigid frames of Theology, say as ...calvinist, reformed ... , etc. which eventually govern the understanding of Scripture.
Based on the teaching of Ephesians 4; It appears to me, that is what pastor /teachers are suppose to do under the governance of the Holy Spirit, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. They oversee the doctrine of those under their charge, in order to bring unity in the body, by helping their brethren understand the Scripture. What you call rigid frames, I call imperfect obedience to the revealed will of God, through the appointed means. Always dependent on Christ.

I agree Christ understood Scripture as a whole; as the author of it that is certainly expected. As the Mediator truly God and truly man he lived perfectly in precepts, thoughts, values and revealed character that is taught in Scripture when he analyzed matters, facts or situations.

As you see it, How does one become so one with Christ that he can move beyond Ephesians 4. I thought the purpose of reformed and Confessional Christianity was unity in the body and conformity to Christ, by imperfect sanctification this side of glory.

Are you a woman? yes or no? please

@ B. McC,

You're an interesting mix of data but for me it doesn't compute.

in P#1 you sound like a theonomist, contrary to the other thread, there you didn't and the rest did. I've been lead to think you're a woman, but that was implied by you more than admitted.

I think evangelical/fundamentalist/reformed setting a good definition of sa
and your "so like the children of Israel, the 'smiths ‘of the Word figure in the Philistine court."

Checking the context and being familiar with both portions in 1 Sam 13 and Psalm 11, I recall from Scripture in much the same way Lurker did earlier.

Isa.54:16 Behold, I have created the 'smith' that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.

Remember there's what you say and what I hear, God being Sovereign over both; so who ever you are and whatever you believe it will only come to rest upon my heart by His Word and Spirit if the Father through the son be so pleased to remember me in my weak estate for his name's g

Trying to follow the comments, I looked up Scripture and checked context and referred to trusted teachers in print; pastor/teachers Ephesians.4:11-15 Just an observation:

Isa 13:12 I will make a man more precious than fine gold; even a man than the golden wedge of Ophir.

I believe that pastor/teachers are required to know the original languages. M. Poole and M. Henry did.

M. Poole (teacher) gives his understanding of the meaning of Isa. 13:12 in context and says: "The city and nation will be depopulated, that few men will be left in it."

M. Henry (pastoral) "There shall be so great a slaughter as will produce a scarcity of men I will make a man more precious than fine gold. You could not have a man to be employed in any of the affairs of state, not a man to be enlisted in the army, not a man to match a daughter to, for the building up of a family, if you would give any money for one. The troops of the neighbouring nations would not be hired into the service of the king of Babylon, because they saw every thing go against him. Populous countries are soon depopulated by war. And God can soon make a kingdom that has been courted and admired to be dreaded and shunned by all, as a house that is falling, or a ship that is sinking.”

See WCF Chap 1, section 4,5,6

... Can't beat reading the bible itself and nothing trumps it. Will look into what you posted. Thanks.
I don't like pointing someone to something I didn't listen to. So I did. I appears it was information given to students at the Met. Tabernacle to warn them about the mysticism of the emergent church, so as to avoid it (assumed). However the whole of what I heard (stopped just short of the end) was a presentation of false teaching and not of truth and it made me uncomfortable.

There are varying degrees of mysticism coming out of Rome and it seems for some time it has had post reformation undermining tendencies and sadly success.
But the Lord will preserve the Father's little flock.

Reading the Scripture is good and necessary and so is good teaching and preaching. May the Lord send faithful laborers into the fields and protect his church from all His and her adversaries.

...Personally, I would much rather see whatever movie over reading the book because I am very visual and learn faster that way. The movie brings the book to life and gives me not only a whole new perspective, but I will remember every detail as opposed to the bits and pieces I would remember from reading because my mind wanders.[/QUOTE]You sound like other young men I know. I seems you are saying that the senses instruct the mind; when it is the mind that must instruct the senses.

I was looking for a sermon to recommend on the 'emergent church'. I picked one and changed my mind not related to what I was hearing by the man, but related to what I read while listening. I said, No.

Yesterday I was trying to understand who was William Law (the author John's reading) I learned a number of things in the process. While trying to recommend to you a sermon, what I learned of William Law coincided with it. This was done at the Met Tabernacle, I believe.

I listen to men with trepidation and ask for the Lord's protection. This man speaking is an ex Roman priest. I leave it to you if you choose to listen.

My motherly advice is less stimulation of the senses so more quiet time for the reading of Scripture is best.

Interesting or should I say troubling article. For a number of reasons.

It would certainly appear this is not about shades of brown as Ken Ham states but possibly more related to what Archestor, on another thread pointed out. It is about cultural integration that doesn't work.

American culture has been in the process of confusion for sometime now. It would seem that the cultural model that exists in the mind of power must increase and opposition to it, decrease.

What one would think to be the best cultural model to put in power seems related to one's own culture or delusion of it. Don't misunderstand what I'm saying, I believe that there should be national culture and a nation's culture will be determined by Who those in power to affect culture believe God is and what He requires of them or to say it another way their revelation of God and obedience to his revealed will.

Learning your nations culture begins in your family, you know, the one under attack from every side. Is the prevailing culture in the USA Scriptural or Against it?

I'm sure glad God is ruling over all and that Christ is the ascended Mediator even now enthroned in glory. Now His enthroned glory and power that is something to sing about.

Psalm 94

If Britain began the integration of 'culture' sooner than most and Lisa states it doesn't work then it might be helpful to know: Why Britain was the leader of this integration? or Who was leading Britain astray? Why cultural integration doesn't work? and What is a better option and What should be done about it if as Archestor said dim politicians seem to need more light on the subject?

1517 wrote:
My point is the Creation Museum is based in entertainment.... Yes, Ken Ham is good at creation apologetics, but the approach he takes is part of the youth exodus from churches problem.
Just trying to follow what your saying, Are you saying that children are leaving the Church's who have given into our entertainment oriented culture for by so doing these Churches have lost the necessary power or authority of the preached word and God's true worship has been compromised? No power to hold their minds unless the power is of God?

If I rightly understand the article it is related to some parents thinking Ken Ham is not as "scientific" as evolutionists and he countered with telling parents they were the ones at fault for handing their children over to the public schools 'science so called' and that was the reason their children were questioning the Scripture and leaving. If Ken Ham is a science teacher then he couldn't teach in a public setting, he could teach in a Christian School or home school, but he'd have a smaller hearing. If he is a Christian apologist how and in what manner do you think he should exercise that ability? Is it just the entertainment element that you find offensive 1517? Trying to understand.

Integration of 'culture' never has worked and never will. Lets hope these dim politicians learn that soon.
Jer 13:23
Certainly that would be the best option but I fear it is too late and divine judgment is close at hand for the West.

I do not think it the final judgment related to unfulfilled prophecy but fearful judgment none the less. I would think Peter's words would also apply in this case as well as the final judgment he speaks to here.

2 Peter 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

Genesis 6:11 The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

From Poole's Commentary:

The inhabitants of the earth were known for violence, injustice, fraud, rapine (deliberate destruction of a town or country during war, especially when it involves theft)and oppression. The generality having become universally corrupt before God in their duties;

1. towards God and his worship, corrupted by horrible superstition and idolatry

2. towards men in the duties of righteousness.

Poole had stated that there was a mixing of sons of God (the seed of the woman) and the daughters of men (the seed of the serpent) because the godly now in the minority were promiscuously choosing wives without any regard for their sobriety and religion; minding only their fancies and lusts and not the pleasing and serving of their Lord and maker, nor the obtaining of a godly seed which was God's end in the institution of marriage (Mal.2:15) and should have been theirs too.

Can anyone explain to me what 'crying sins' are? I've heard the term used before but wasn't sure of the meaning from context?

All things seem to be coming together into one focus since the Lord's Day or even before, the preservation of the next generation. Mr. Poole's explanation of Genesis 6 comes to my mind. In his Commentary of the Bible his opening summary states: Unlawful matches of the sons of God with the daughter's of men v. 1-2 grieve the Spirit of God, who threatens their destruction v.3 Giants and mighty men born; a general degeneracy of mankind, v.4,5 God repents that he had made man, and resolves to destroy the world, v.6,7 Noah is excepted, and finds favour with God v. 9 The earth corrupt and filled with violence v.11,12 God declares to Noah his purpose to destroy it, v. 13 Directs him to make an arch v.14-16 Mentions a deluge v.17 His covenant with Noah to preserve a seed, v. 18-21 Noah's obedience v.22

I remember the Sabbath I read Poole's Commentary on Gen 6 and it's profound impact, please consider reading it in the interest of the next generation.

It is too easy to be taken up with what is present, but Scripture, history and common sense gives us reason enough to be concerned for the west and I believe the British Isles in particular. They have known great privilege in days of old.

@J4J in response to your post.

To be Reformed is to be reformed *from* Romish doctrine and worship; idolatry, and holy days and to keep a Christian Sabbath. By Lou Veiga http://www.sermonaudio.com/playpopup.asp?SID=121414152918 was helpful as was most of what I listened to so far in his teaching through Genesis.

I didn't agree with the last part of this sermon because of the reference to man-made hymns and holy days, but I spoke to him first before commending what was helpful to others.

It is easy to be misinformed these days and Mr.Trump is not alone.

@ Sad grandma, I retired considering what you said. I was encouraged by your response 7/21. I was thinking that without contrast there is no clarity of the beauty of light. As parents and grandparents, there are days of joy and sorrow. In the days of joy, sin is still present and in the nights of sorrow sin appears per-eminent. Christ's love and power alone is a cord strong enough not to be broken. By the power of His word and Spirit, He will draw all the elect in his time. The great Physician heals sins consequences, pouring in the wine and oil to heal, he places us where we are protected until we can continue on in a way of his appointment and not in our own. His way is perfect. Psalm 18:30,32

From the article, "No-one becomes a terrorist from a standing start," said the PM.

And in that one phrase lies the core of Mr Cameron's argument: people become terrorists gradually.

They start with intolerant views towards democracy, freedom of expression and sexual equality. If this is not challenged they often gravitate to even more extreme views.

And this over time can lead to violence and terrorism.

In other words, tackling the ideology of IS involves confronting people over intolerance, prejudice and hostility to British values."

Not sure I'm clear on what he means by "British values." The problem may be that they are for the most part not consistent with God's when compared to His revealed will in the Scriptures of Truth? Would he take offense at that statement, as being contrary to "British values?"
