A great perspective to focus on & remind oneself daily, as their is no faithful Friend like Christ Alone amen!
The sermon from Apologia Church that was mentioned on here is a good listen of information from scriptures amen!
Pro 4:23-27 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, & put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look straight ahead, & your eyelids look right before you. Ponder the path of your feet, & let all your ways be established. Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove your foot from evil.
Oâ Lord encourage Your people Lord to stay safe, to stay encourage & lifting up others to the Throne of God! Thank You precious Lord, that the Gospel isnât quarantined, that their is hope, as Hope comes with a holy & bloody price with it.
As true hope that brings real peace into ones heart, mind & soul, is only found in & through Christ Alone, at Holy Calvary Alone! Oâ Lord remove the veil off others, who have spiritual hearts of Stone, who arenât prepared for mortal death outside of Christ Alone amen!
Spurgeon; Keep your eye simply on Him; let His death, His sufferings, His merits, His glories, His intercession, be fresh upon thy mind; when you wake in the morning look to Him; when thou lie down at night look to Him. Oh! let not your hopes or fears come between thee and Jesus; follow hard after Him, and He will never fail you.
Dr. Tim; Time after time when Jim posts on here, you get to see how shallow & absurd his worldview reduces one too. Jim is a ungrateful grumbler, as when one is seeking to live in a pleasing way of the Lord, ones speech. Will be reflective of I am what I am but by the Grace of God Alone, I am & go Alone amen!
2 PT 2:21 For it would have been better for them nât to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered to them.
Jim; You sure are consistent on pushing your Socialist Comrade Kingdom ways on these threads. Sprinkle in a little jesus here & there, but the Jesus you sprinkle in. Is another Jesus taken out of His context & character, accordingly to Scriptures Alone!
Spurgeon; Many a man has died from internal bleeding, & yet there has been no wound whatever to be seen by the eye. You may go to hell as well dressed in the garnishings of morality as in the rags of immorality. Unless the very center of your soul & the core of your being be made obedient to the living God, He willnât accept you, for He looks nât only to your outward condition, but to your heartâs secret loyalty or treachery toward Himself.
Thank You Lord for the preciousness of contentment, peace & hope, through the storms of life. What a blessed Friend we have in Christ, to cast our burdens on Him. As He is utterly faithful, thank You Precious Lord amen!
Hope is Never Quarantined, in & through Christ Alone amen!
Spurgeon; The very happiest persons I have ever met with have been departing believers. The only people for whom I have felt any envy have been dying members of this very church, whose hands I have grasped in their passing away. Almost without exception I have seen in them holy delight & triumph. & in the exceptions to this exceeding joy I have seen deep peace, exhibited in a calm & deliberate readiness to enter into the presence of their God.
Here is what happening across the land in different Planned Parenthoodâs across the land! As some cops are being tyrants & hypocrites. As they arenât practicing social distancing themselves, & they hate Free Speech. Religious exemption has been said itâs fine from many governors, as itâs protected under our 1 st amendment rights to do so!
Jim; This so fits your logic & reasoning as this is whatâs happening at Murder Mills, across the Land. Multiple moms going in & out wearing masks for fear of the CCP virus, but nât a shred of fear of the Lord.
Pro 17:15 He who justifies the wicked, & he who condemns the just, Both of them alike are an abomination to the Lord.
Jim; One isnât Born into this world in a state of neutrality, apart from Christ, Jim. One stands in a state of justifiable condemnation, as none are innocent, or good or seeking, Christ apart from Christ Alone!
So Jim, what you are saying you know what Morality is, the Only Triune God of the Bible Alone is all wrong & anyone who disagrees with you is wrong then too!
Jim; Itâs a unloving Act towards a image barrier of God, in nât in love to warm them, why itâs a fearful thing to die in spirit of hostilely, apart from Christ Alone!
Jim; As thatâs liken to 1 going into a car with no brakes & a 500 FT cliff awaiting them a mile away. You know that & they donât. How unloving itâs for one nât to stop one & warn them, in the great danger they are facing upon themselves!
Jim; Pro 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom & instruction.
Thank You precious Lord in the importance of daily reminding to ones own self daily. I am what I am but by the Grace of God Alone. I amnât better than the unregenerate just better off, Oâ how sweet & precious is His Saving truths, are amen.
Spurgeon; Born, as all of us are by nature, an Arminian, I still believed the old things I had heard continually from the pulpit, and did not see the grace of God. When I was coming to Christ, I thought I was doing it all myself, and though I sought the Lord earnestly, I had no idea the Lord was seeking me.
Thank goodness that God doesnât give us fairness of what we all are deserving of. Apart from Him removing ones spiritual heart of stone away, as grace humbles ones & nât meant to puff one up amen.
Spurgeon; I donât believe that we can preach the gospel if we donât preach justification by faith, without works. Nor unless we preach the sovereignty of God in the dispensation of grace. Nor unless we exalt the electing, unchangeable, eternal, immutable, conquering love of Jehovah. Nor do I think we can preach the gospel, unless we base it upon the particular redemption which Christ made for His elect & chosen people. Nor can I comprehend a gospel which lets saints fall away after they are called.
May the Lord bring comfort to the family of Mike, in their time of grieving. May the presence of the Lord, through His Word, bring hope, through ones access they have in & through Christ Alone. In what a Faithful Friend Christ is to us, despite the difficult seasons of life, we go through. Oâ How precious Jesus is to lead one too Him, as being a refuge & shelter in all storms & seasons of life amen!
We live & die; Christ died & lived! John Stott
Up from the grave he arose; with a mighty triumph oâer his foes; he arose a victor from the dark domain..from âUp from the Grave He Aroseâ
Thank You Oâ Lord for Your glorious sovereignty, for Heaven would have none, if the Great, I am, didnât come to seek & save, those who wouldnât be seeking on their own, utterly amazement of wonder in why He would save many & nât any at all amen.
Spurgeon; If there existed only one man or woman who didnât love the Saviour, & if that person lived among the wilds of Siberia, & if it were necessary that all the millions of believers on the face of the earth should journey there, & every one of them plead with him to come to Jesus before he could be converted, it would be well worth all the zeal, labour, & expense. If we had to preach to thousands year after year, & never rescued but one soul, that one soul would be full reward for all our labour, for a soul is of countless price.
Oâ Lord may Your people use this time we have given to us each day we get breath & life in our bodies. As judgement starts in the house of the Lord first. May we be weeping over the souls of others, as we examine our lives out, Oâ Lord search me out too amen!
Spurgeon; I would sooner bring one sinner to Jesus Christ than unravel all the mysteries of the divine Word, for salvation is the one thing we are to live for.â
George Whitefield; True conversion means turning nât only from sin but also from depending on self-made righteousness. Those who trust in their own righteousness for conversion hide behind their own good works. This is the reason that self-righteous people are so angry with gospel preachers, because the gospel does not spare those who will not submit to the righteousness of Jesus Christ!
Jim without true life changing peace in & through Christ Alone. That shows & reflects in ones life, as one is in a active on going fight against their fallen flesh. In submitting to Christ in knowing that one is only cleansed, sanctified & justified, by what only Christ can & has to do for one alone.
As you are just merely giving lip service, as those who are outside of Christ & are still in a active state of hospitality towards Christ!
Jhn 8:44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, & doesnât stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar & the father of it.
Powerful here when people see the truth that is done with in the Murder Mills, as itâs nât little puppies but Babies!
Pro 6:16-18 These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil,
