DAILY BIBLE PROMISE

** God put His Cross where His Mouth Was - all along! ** Today's Bible Promise is ... "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate [to be] conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified." Rom 8:29-30

MORNING

My God shall supply all your need
according to his riches in glory by
Christ Jesus.

S EEK ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all . . . things shall be added unto you.--He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?--All things are yours: whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ's; and Christ is God's.--As having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.--The LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.--The living God . . . giveth us richly all things to enjoy.--God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.

PHIL. 4. 19. Mat. 6. 33.--Ro. 8. 32.--
1 Co. 3. 21-23.--2 Co. 6. 10. Ps. 23. 1.--
Ps. 84. 11.--1 Ti. 6. 17.--2 Co. 9. 8.


EVENING

What communion hath light with
darkness?

M EN loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.--Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

Darkness hath blinded his eyes.--Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

The dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty.--Love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble. The path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

Ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.

2 COR. 6. 14. John. 3. 19.--1 Th. 5. 5.

A time for WAR!

Is war Hell? There is plenty of war on earth. And there always has been. Man hates others. Those that are not 'of his like'. Man justifies war by whatever rationale his 'like' will accept. And most human hoards thrill at rattling sabers.

And God says there is a time or season FOR war. The translators of the KJV did not translate it that way. They said, "a time to hate; a time OF war". What's the difference? Not much. And, as with any such translator's distinctions - let us HOPE we know God well enough to ask Him - DIRECTLY - and then wait to Hear His Voice - for our Answer!

Man hates. There are even whole religions that teach hate instead of love. Hating is a hardened religion where millions and millions of souls are concerned. It is sanctioned by their 'god'. Well, we might expect this from any 'god' that confuses suicide with martyrdom - ehwhat?? (especially when the aim of that suicide/martyrdom is to murder and maim as many others as possible!)

But there is war - and then, there is WAR!! A physical war can kill bodies. But a Spiritual War kills SOULS! Jesus Warns us not to fear the death of our bodies - but rather to Fear The only One Who can DESTROY our soul - GOD!

The Christian Weapons of Spiritual Warfare are MIGHTY. What do they DO? They 'pull down strongholds' (breaking every yoke) - take captivity (adiction/bondage/idolatry) captive! These Weapons are SPIRIT - they are not physical. They are The Fruit of The Spirit - LOVE - JOY - PEACE - PATIENCE - KINDNESS - GOODNESS - GENTLENESS - SELF-CONTROL - LOWLINESS - MEEKNESS, etc. These are Super-Natural - that is, they are Native ONLY to God and His Own - that is, God's "LIKE".

To war against Love - we have but to remain carnal. Rebel. Resist. Defy.

There has never been such a Call to War as in Jesus Christ. And His War is PEACE - The Government of God in man! Only He HAS It - only He GIVES It - only His very Own KEEP It! We WIN It by SURRENDER and KEEP It by PATIENCE!

How you doing, Pilgrim? How's your PEACE? (How goes The WAR?)

DAILY HYMN (LYRICS & MUSIC)



THE QUIET HOUR

Speak, Lord, in the stillness
While I wait on Thee;
Hushed my heart to listen,
In expectancy.

Speak, O blessèd Master,
In this quiet hour,
Let me see Thy face, Lord,
Feel Thy touch of power.

For the words Thou speakest,
“They are life” indeed;
Living Bread from heaven,
Now my spirit feed!

All to Thee is yielded,
I am not my own;
Blissful, glad surrender,
I am Thine alone.

Fill me with the knowledge
Of Thy glorious will;
All Thine own good pleasure
In my life fulfill.

Like “a watered garden”
Full of fragrance rare
Ling’ring in Thy presence
Let my life appear.

CHRISTIAN STUDY RESOURCES

'Darkness of ignorance,
dungeons of falsehood, and
chains of superstition!'

from Spurgeon’s,"WHAT GOD CANNOT DO!"

Truth once reigned supreme upon our globe, and
then earth was Paradise. Man knew no sorrow
while he was ignorant of falsehood.

The Father of Lies invaded the garden of bliss,
and with one foul lie he blighted Eden into a
wilderness, and made man a traitor to his God.
Cunningly he handled the glittering falsehood
and made it dazzle in the woman's eyes- “God
knows that in the day you eat thereof, then your
eyes shall be opened, and you shall be as gods,
knowing good and evil.”

Proud ambition rode upon that lie as a conqueror
in his chariot, and the city of Mansoul opened its
gates to welcome the fascinating enemy.

As it was a lie which first subjugated the world to Satan's
influences, so it is by lies that he secures his throne.

Among the heathen his kingdom is quiet and secure,
because the minds of the people are deluded with a
false mythology. The domains of Mohammed and the
Pope are equally the kingdom of Satan, and his reign
is undisturbed, for human merit, priestly efficacy,
and a thousand other deceptions buttress his throne.

The darkness of ignorance, the dungeons of falsehood,
and the chains of superstition, are the main reliance of that
monster who oppresses all the nations with his infernal tyranny!

NOTABLE QUOTES (Various Authors)

"A mere head-believer is on a par with fallen angels, and he will have his portion with them forever unless grace shall change his heart."
--Spurgeon

(providing that is yet possible! see Heb6:4-6)

"Reader, remember this: if your biblical knowledge
does not now affect your heart, it will at last, with
a witness, afflict your heart.

If it does not now endear Christ to you, it will at
last provoke Christ the more against you.

If it does not make all the things of Christ to be
very precious in your eyes, it will at last make
you the more vile in Christ's eyes."
--Thomas Brooks
