His Stripes ~

March 31, 2018

This sums it up so well…

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

His stripes,
my forgiven sin
His chastisement
my peace within.

His wounds,
my transgression
His death
my redemption.

His bruising,
my iniquity
His crown
my victory.

His sorrow,
my corruption
His grief
my adoption.

His stripes,
my healing
His Spirit
my sealing!

~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:4-5

“Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.

“But he was wounded
for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace
was upon him;
and with his stripes
we are healed.”

King Jesus is Lord of All

March 17, 2018

Sherry’s blog, “He Hath Said” is a great place to get a good dose of the wonderful messages that came from the “Prince of Preachers.” Lately, I have been reading every post. Here is one of the latest…

He Hath Said

Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free… – Colossians 3:11

Observe, “there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free,” in the new creation, but “Christ is all, and in all.” In the new world there is no difference between Jew and Gentile; Barbarian simplicity and Greek cultivation are as nothing. I suppose as long as we are in the flesh we shall set some store by our nationality, and like Paul shall somewhat glory that we were free born: but surely the less of this the better. Within the gates of the Christian church we are cosmopolitan, or rather we are citizens of the New Jerusalem only. As a man, I rejoice that I am an Englishman, but not with the same holy joy which fills me when I remember that I am a Christian. When…

Conversing With God ~

February 13, 2018

It’s been way too long since I’ve shared one of Deborah Ann’s poems here. She is continually putting out encouraging and truth-filled posts to help keep God’s Word where it should be: at the fore. I love this poem. It is so true. Our God is not limited. We can praise Him or cry out for help whenever and wherever necessary. He will never leave us or forsake us!

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

You can pray to God,
from anywhere . . .
whether you’re outside
or home in your chair.

God is always listening,
His ear is always near
He has the capacity
for every prayer to hear.

You can pray to God,
about everything
He is receptive . . .
to hear anything.

God is always willing,
to listen to your heart
in your supplications
He wants to take part.

You can pray to God,
He loves to converse
you can just let it go
no need to rehearse.

God is available,
morning, noon or night
it doesn’t matter . . .
the time is always right.

You can pray to God,
have a real conversation
whether out in the open
or in quiet mediation!

Psalm 55:17

“Evening, and morning,
and at noon, will I pray,
and cry aloud: and he
shall hear my voice.”

Empowered Saints

December 21, 2017

Sherry continues to find these wonderful quotes that may be a bit old to us but they are full of truth and wisdom, something very lacking in our times. It is an encouragement to know the holiness and power of our Lord.

He Hath Said

Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. -Ephesians 6:10

With God there is power in the ministry, power in prayer, power in all holy work. We may do a vast deal of work, and yet nothing may come of it; and, on the other hand, we may only be able to do comparatively little, and yet great results may flow therefrom: for results depend not on the quantity of the machinery, but on the presence of the Lord.

Do you not all know persons who are not peculiarly gifted, and yet are eminently useful? You do not remark anything about them that is specially noticeable, and yet their whole career enlists attention by its power. Their words tell, for there is character behind them. A consistent life gives force to a plain testimony. It is not so much what is said as who says it…

A regrettable decision to “dialogue” with spiritually deadly error

June 21, 2017

I’ve spent a bit of time on this particular issue lately. Tom of excatholic4Christ has written an excellent post which mirrors my position on this topic. I must add a link to a Youtube channel where I first heard about this issue. I’ve had to criticize the young Christian apologist Keith Thompson for a picture he put up with one of his videos on this topic but I think Keith is correct about the main issue. Tom confronts the same issue in his post.

excatholic4christ

Thanks to Chris at Wings of the Wind for his indirect contributions to this post.

In my last “Weekend Roundup” post, I commented on a recent “dialogue” session held in Idaho featuring evangelical and Mormon apologists. The purpose of that dialogue was to promote understanding between the two “parties” and find common ground. Argh! I’m definitely of the opinion that evangelical apologists should debate false religionists rather than dialogue with them. Accommodation and cooperation with error are slippery slopes that always lead to compromise and betrayal of the Gospel. Try to imagine the apostle Paul endeavoring to dialogue with the priests of 1st-century Roman paganism in order to benefit “mutual understanding and respect.” Imagine, if you can, Charles Spurgeon, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, John R. Rice, or James R. White having dialogue sessions with clerics of false religions. Stop the tape! James R. White? I should definitely rewind that statement in…

Never Alone ~

May 14, 2017

Many of you know that recently my father passed out of this world. I have been trying to put up a video that was shown at his funeral celebration. The video includes family pictures throughout the years. I have been unable to accomplish this due to either lack of technical skill or a lock on the DVD I’m trying to load. No matter. My point is that this poem from Deborah Ann explains why I have been given a peace that passes all understanding during this time. I will see my father again and will get to spend as much time as I like with him.

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

I once thought,
I could do it alone
but, then I invited Jesus
to come into my home.

Now He resides,
inside of these walls
He’s always around
when His name I call.

His very presence,
gives me such peace
for, on Him my worries
I am free to release.

He brings me comfort,
just knowing He’s here
He fills my heart and soul
with joy and good cheer.

I once thought,
I’d be left on my own
but since I found Jesus
I am never alone!

in your hearts by faith;
