Something to think about

PROFESSIONAL SPORTS AND WORSHIP

compiled by Michael Jeshurun

‘Professional Sports’ be it Boxing, Football, Soccer, Cricket or whatever – is an ABOMINATION TO GOD! And you CANNOT take something which God hates and clean it up to ‘give Him glory’! Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh! When you see someone bragging about Floyd Mayweather, Lionel Messi or Tiger Woods etc you have to wonder WHO truly is their God. For the true Christian this is not even an option, for with the Apostle he says – “God forbid that I should glory, save in the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world!” [Gal 6:14]

Are you telling me that God hates all sports and is against it?

Let us make this plain – it is not wrong or sinful for a father to take his…

He Hath Said

…as of one born out of due time. – 1 Corinthians 15:8

There have been some dear friends, who may be said to have been “born out of due time,” for they have been converted to God after it seemed impossible that they ever should be. I recollect well reading of one who imbibed sceptical notions, and became exceedingly furious against the preaching of the Word. One day, in Edinburgh, he heard it said that, a certain eminent minister of the gospel intended, if he met him, to speak with him about his soul; whereupon the man uttered some very strong expressions, and, amongst other wicked things, he said, “I shall never be converted unless I lose my senses:” All who were acquainted with him, and who knew how desperately he was set against the gospel, thought that his was indeed a hopeless case; but, in the infinite mercy of…

GOD’S FAITHFULNESS MY ONLY HOPE FOR THE YEAR AHEAD

by A.W. Pink

UNFAITHFULNESS is one of the most outstanding sins of these evil days. In the business world, a man’s word is, with exceedingly rare exceptions, no longer his bond. In the social world, marital infidelity abounds on every hand, the sacred bonds of wedlock being broken with as little regard as the discarding of an old garment. In the ecclesiastical realm, thousands who have solemnly covenanted to preach the truth make no scruple to attack and deny it. Nor can reader or writer claim complete immunity from this fearful sin: in how many ways have we been unfaithful to Christ, and to the light and privileges which God has entrusted to us! How refreshing, then, how unspeakably blessed, to lift our eyes above this scene of ruin, and behold One who is faithful, faithful in all things, faithful at…

Simple but true.

The Domain for Truth

I want to make a bite size witty ditty to make a point memorable.

For Christians the Bible should be important since it is God’s Word.

Christians should have two proper relationship to the Bible.  What are they?

Here’s a little rhyme to drive the point home:

Are we ready to take up the sword of the spirit?

FOR THE RECORD “I AM A PROTESTANT – LOCK, STOCK AND BARREL!”

Michael Jeshurun

Yeah we’ve been crying out against Christmas, Easter and Halloween for many years now and those who have their mind set to compromise will continue to observe these abominations using all sorts of sickening justifications. But that isn’t going to stop me from crying out against it; because the divine admonition to me as a servant of God is not to trim my sails to the breeze of popular opinion, but to tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may!

“And thou shalt speak My words unto them, WHETHER THEY WILL HEAR, OR WHETHER THEY WILL FORBEAR: for they are most rebellious!” [Ezk 2:7]

But that will not make you ‘popular’ nor draw crowds will it?

“No, it will not, and knowing this, those who love the praise of men…

It is just a simple fact.

Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts

During the times of the Old Testament world, there were a lot of things that weren’t really clear. They were mysteries to some extent. Some of the prophets caught glimpses of the revelation of Jesus and truth. They spoke them to the people and wrote them down.

When Jesus came, it all burst into the open. I am so thankful that Jesus is the truth and pulled down the covering of the mystery of God. Jesus shows me who God is. I don’t have to be in the dark. I am in the light of the truth of Jesus. That is amazing. I can know who God is through Jesus.

God wants everyone to know the truth of Jesus. It is now a up to us to reveal the rich and glorious secret inside and out. It doesn’t matter who it is, I must show everyone I can who Jesus…

A Good Life

soulgifts - Telling Tales

Harvard University has conducted a fascinating

longitudinal study over 75 years of men in two very different cohorts –

268 were healthy college sophomores  from the classes of 1939 – 1944

465 were disadvantaged non delinquent inner-city youths from Boston between 1940 – 1945

 The goal of the study was to identify predictors of healthy aging.

The main conclusion is that “warmth of relationships throughout life has the greatest positive impact on ‘life satisfaction'”.

Raili Tanska

The study shows: “Happiness is love. Full stop.”
