I love, I love my Master... Thank you Rev. Stewart for such a precious word which draws the soul out to love and cling to a Saviour whose great love, mercy and compassion for guilty souls is a stark contrast to Satan's malice, shrewdness and hatred. Exceedingly precious are those words of Christ; "the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." In this blessed Saviour our souls find rest, our lives know hope and our hearts rejoice.
Hope maketh not ashamed A word much needed and much appreciated. Thank you for such a gracious sermon guiding poor souls home out of the ruins. Not a change in circumstances is needed, but a change in heart so that we can say, like Mary, "be it unto me according to thy word."
The Word speaks plainly True believers who are born again have nothing to worry about ever because the Word gives us assurance of our Eternal Salvation.
Jude 24-25King James Version (KJV)
24ï¿½Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25ï¿½To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
Romans 8:38 Context
35Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We don't trust in 'feelings' but in Christ and faith in Him, is a gift from Him.
John 3:3 and John 3:16 and .....
Well, at least now we have a name to include in our prayers! $3,000+ monthly rent would drive anyone nutty! Maybe try a different Hospital, that one gets bad reviews. Pro 10:18 He that hideth hatred with lying lips, and he that uttereth a slander, is a fool. Pro 10:23 It is as sport to a fool to do mischief: but a man of understanding hath wisdom.
Dave from oz, I hope you can meditate on these precious verses and have God's peace over sins forgiven.: 1Cor. 6.9-11, 1 John 1.9, Matthew 6.37, Matthew 12.31, Mark 3.28, Isaiah 53, Isaiah 55.7. Each of us has turned in our own way and sinned terribly. Dont despair. Ask the Lord for Godly sorrow- repent and believe. Dont leave out the believe. Have faith.
There was a time not too many years ago when US Navy warships flew the "church pennant" to signify that church services were taking place. It was a long and thin flag as are all pennants, for those unfamiliar, with a Cross. Official regulations at that time had the pennant flying above the National ensign/the American flag, showing that our nation is/was "under God." But those days are most likely behind us now...sadly. Church pennants are probably no longer flown and chaplains are hounded for being too tied to God rather than the secular. Argue as you must, for it is your natures, but there is precendent.
Helpful counsel about ADHD Incredible perspective on ADHD! A few key quotes:
"We have a whole generation of disobedient children in our nation who are proud, self-centered, and indulgent to their own drives and lusts. Parents who have been programmed not to spank them because thatâ€™s been reclassified as child abuse, parents who really donâ€™t know what moral system to teach them...Parents are now trying to deal with these children in the most frightening ways."
"turning that child into a drug addict, is that a solution?"
"'Studies indicate that those with untreated ADHD are more likely to become alcoholics, smokers or drug abusers than the general population.' Sure, undisciplined people with no self-control are more likely to behave like that."
On the 6 signs a child has ADHD: "You know who theyâ€™re describing? All of our children."
"every time I took home a note like that, I got spanked... Iâ€™m glad my parents didnâ€™t turn me into a drug addict. "
Of inestimable help! This preaching was an inestimable help to me during my trials with cancer. God's word is sufficient! I learned all the more to turn to God's word above and before any writing of man. This sermon also helped to further my departure from the charismatic church. Years ago, when I was in really hard trials I used to turn to the Bible plus certain charismatic books, and even "The Imitation of Christ", where the authors claim revelation from God. I also used to turn to really emotional, repetitive music, like Hillson. This sermon, and the trials I have gone through, have really broken me into believing and knowing that God's word alone is the counsel to turn to. How incredible it is that the Scriptures come through ever time for every problem.
