The Urgency of National Repentance

America's most urgent need as the New Year begins is national repentance.

"I am struck by the high level of anxiety and worry on all fronts," said Robert Jones, CEO of the Public Religion Research Institute, as PRRI released its American Values Survey November 17.

There are many obvious causes of national nervousness: terrorism, crime and domestic unrest, political weakness and uncertainty, economic woes, and moral collapse, to name a few.

Yet there is unidentifiable angst in the national soul. In our travels and interactions with people across the United States, we conclude this hidden distress is spiritual. ...

Hi John UK, yes, we had a wonderful time just watching her having this celebration for her. She had a school friend attending also and it was a lot of difference in their health and ability to move around. Her friend had to hold onto her daughter to even walk. The one that is in our class, still zips around in her Jaguar. I help a friend of mine to teach that class. They are all widows, and still come to Sunday School, one has a walker and most live in assistant living but some still live in their homes. They bless me to watch them interact. Very sweet ladies and not concerned about death at all. They love each other and their Lord, Jesus Christ. Way off the thread but wanted to share how even in their twilight years they still have a desire to meet and worship together.
Hi Dolores, thanks for telling me more about that event, and about the regular group that meets together. Wonderful. I hope that if I ever reach a ripe age, I will still wish to meet together with others to talk about the Lord and how wonderful he is, giving testimony, and still learning from the word, praying together and worshipping together.

Yes, John Uk, I still read Charles Spurgeon's Morning and Evening devotional. Something to set my mood and thoughts to face the day and something to mediate on at night to give me peace and tranquility to sleep well and pray over things that I encountered that day. I, too, hear the noisy sounds and maybe a little less tranquility this New Year's Eve. 9:30 here so a few more hours yet. Blessings to all for the coming new year, 2016.
Glad to hear it, Dolores. Spurgeon never fails to warm the spiritual heart.

Last night wasn't too bad here. I think the fireworks budget had a squeeze.

Lord's blessings to you also for 2016, and I hope the class gets well blessed as you meet together.

As a whole are we really that confused on Mary being a virgin? C'mon if anyone is splitting hairs and trying to find scripture to the contrary I suggest you get off line , pick up the bible and read it. Seriously.

looks like we have a person who is getting their toes stepped on by the truth, you should take up your double standard and juvenile barb with the Holy Spirit

For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

One does not invoke God's blessings by misusing Scripture as a formula.
The verse misused by Penny is in reference to discipline only and is not laying out a principal/model for gathering for prayer.
Again,"2 or 3".
There are,however,principles laid out for worship in the bible-not mixing the profane with that which is Holy is one of them.
Anonymous should stay anonymous.And I have never revealed anything personal about myself...again,don't refer to me as "she". You don't know me and if you think that you do,you,again,as is typical,are sorely confused.
Easter is correct in the KJV.
The celebrating of the spring equinox/asherath,etc. preceded Christ's resurrection. He is our Passover but the Jewish Passover had already passed along with the days of the unleavened bread.
This is easily researched and rightly divided by many if one so chooses to be a berean.
I won't respond to juvenile barbs and if one wishes to make them,they can count them among their other idles words for which they will answer.

Trial and tribulation as applied by God, on HIS Christians, using the experience of life on earth builds Christian character and reveals potential and strength in faith.

Thus trial and trib has a very useful and practical purpose both for God and in the life of the Christian. Election and the gift of faith are simply the beginnings of this process.

Where in the Bible does it reveal God's purpose of trial and trib have this 'good' effect?
Hebrews 11 is a good start.
2Cor 1:5-10.
Job 2:10 reminds us of reality.
Psalm 26:1-2 Are good questions in relation to effect.
Ephesians 6 ... The 'armour' of God. Why might you require armour down here on earth?
Trial and trib builds character.
Trial and trib demonstrates grace at work in the Christian life.

When God calls HIS elect to HIM, HE does not just leave them to their own devices. God works HIS plan and purpose in each life which HE saves. God chastises HIS elect Proverbs 3:11/12. God does allow Satan to trial and trib as Book of Job teaches.

2Corin. 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

although sc states she can apply verses to situations that don't relate to the context of the passage, Penny and others cannot, got it, that is consistent.

Barney, here is another example, specifically mentioning the verse in Isaiah:

Matthew 1:18-23 KJV
(18) Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
(19) Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
(20) But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
(21) And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
(22) Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
(23) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

Note the words, "before they came together..."

Scripture interprets scripture, as Bro Lurker always says.

Barney Fife wrote:
...can we also look at other 'explanations' of other things that are wrong in the KJV?
I have heard the Isaiah quote used frequently in the Christmas season, 'a virgin shall give birth' really only means a young woman, not a virgin.
Who are we to believe?
Barney, it is a good question, and it needs a good answer. I'm surprised no-one has explained why "virgin" is absolutely correct as a translation in this instance.

Please observe:

Luke 1:34-35 KJV
(34) Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
(35) And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Mary here is perplexed about a forthcoming prophesied pregnancy. Why? Because she has "not known" a man, thusly, a virgin. Therefore, if a word can have several meanings, checking other scriptures may help to get the right translation, as it does here.

The "Easter" problem has no such difficulties. It plainly should not be there at all. And don't forget that the TBS only publish the KJV in English and give it full support - apart from the blemishes.

For your encouragement.

What sins we have committed! What duties we have neglected! What privileges we have slighted!
How faithless we have been, and yet how faithful our GOD!

Live upon His Word. Look to His fullness.
Act for His glory.Cleave to His saints

Hitchcock Dictionary wrote:
Repentance:
...the cognate noun _metanoia_, is used of true repentance, a change of mind and purpose and life, to which remission of sin is promised. Evangelical repentance consists of (1) a true sense of one's own guilt and sinfulness; (2) an apprehension of God's mercy in Christ; (3) an actual hatred of sin (Ps. 119:128; Job 42:5, 6; 2 Cor. 7:10) and turning from it to God; and (4) a persistent endeavour after a holy life in a walking with God in the way of his commandments. The true penitent is conscious of guilt (Ps. 51:4, 9), of pollution (51:5, 7, 10), and of helplessness (51:11; 109:21, 22). Thus he apprehends himself to be just what God has always seen him to be and declares him to be. But repentance comprehends not only such a sense of sin, but also an apprehension of mercy, without which there can be no true repentance (Ps. 51:1; 130:4).
The article title still irritates me. During this church age, there isn't anything like a national repentance. It is only of individuals The only national repentance is by the nation of Israel, which won't happen until after the Tribulation. Happy New Year, because we getting ever closer to Christ's return.

A prayer for the new year....

Oh LORD,

A long life does not profit me except the days are spent

in Your presence,

In Your service,

for Your glory.

Give me a grace that precedes, follows, guides, sustains,

sanctifies, and aids every hour,

that I may not be one moment apart from You.

May I rely on Your Spirit to

supply every thought,

speak every word,

direct every step,

prosper every work,

build up every ounce of faith.

Give me a desire to

show forth Your praise,

testify of Your love and

advance Your kingdom.

I launch my ship on the unknown waters of this year,

with You, O Father, as my harbor,

You, O Son, at my helm,

You, O Holy Spirit, filling my sails.

Guide me to heaven with

my lamp burning,

my ear open to Your calls,

my heart full of love,

my soul free.

Give me Your grace to sanctify me,

Your comforts to cheer,

Your wisdom to teach,

Your right hand to guide,

Your counsel to instruct,

Your law to judge,

Your presence to stabilize.

May Your fear be my awe,

Your triumphs my joy.

from the 'valley of vision'

What wonderful words of encouragement sister Dorcas, bless you for sharing.

'He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us after our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.' ~ Psalm 103:10-12
