The Roller Coaster Ride Is Over !!!!!!

Originally posted on Levi's Daily Thoughts:

Great news! After the ROLLER COASTER ride of our lives we have come to the end of the ride. Today, the final pathology report came in and our son, Caleb, does NOT have lymphoma as we had previously been informed. PRAISE BE TO GOD!!!!! He had a rare thing called a lymphangioma. It should cause no further problems for him and he should be completely fine after the surgical healing process. I wanted to tell everyone as quickly as possible. We had already dealt with the news that he had cancer and were trusting God for complete healing.  I want to thank you all who prayed so much for your prayers. God truly does answer them. Our God does all things well and in His own time. Thank you all so much!!!

Shalom, until next time, Lord willing,

What a Marvelous Way of Speaking!

Originally posted on Life Is Worship:

So far as justification is concerned, Christ and I must be so closely attached that He lives in me and I in Him. What a marvelous way of speaking!

Because He lives in me, whatever grace, righteousness, life, peace, and salvation there is in me is all Christ’s; nevertheless, it is mine as well, by the cementing and attachment that are through faith, by which we become as one body in the Spirit.

Since Christ lives in me, grace, righteousness, life, and eternal salvation must be present with Him; and the Law, sin, and death must be absent. Indeed, the Law must be crucified, devoured, and abolished by the Law—and sin by sin, death by death, the devil by the devil.

In this way Paul seeks to withdraw us completely from ourselves, from the Law, and from works, and to transplant us into Christ and faith in Christ, so that…

The Revelation Of Jesus Christ: “he that hath the seven Spirits of God” (1)

Originally posted on SettledInHeaven.org Blog:

SIH TOTT ICONRevelation 3:1 KJV

“And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.”

In this text, our Lord is described as having “the seven Spirits of God”.  The last time I looked in the Bible there was only one Holy Spirit.  So what in the world could “the seven Spirits of God” be talking about?

We find the answer to our question in Isaiah 11:2…

“And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;”

Here, we find listed the seven-fold ministry of the Holy Spirit in the lives of God’s people.  It is in that…

Letter Two By Mrs. Marjorie Bond

Dear Dr. Cole:

Do you think you can stand another letter from me? I shall try not to be so verbose this time!

Your wonderful and most helpful letter came two weeks ago tomorrow, so you can see it was in plenty of time for our meeting last night. I was going to acknowledge it immediately; then it occurred to me that if I waited till after the meeting, I could “kill two birds with one stone,” so to speak—thank you for the letter and report on the meeting as well.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate the time and trouble you have taken to help a complete stranger—and yet, perhaps, we are not such strangers after all, as we are related through the bonds of the gospel. But you went to a great deal of work, I…

The Great Business of Your Life

Originally posted on Still They Speak:

“It is ‘through much tribulation that we enter the kingdom of heaven.’ This is the way in which you must go, if you would ever enter there. You must make religion the great business of your life, to which everything else must give place. You must engage with your whole soul in the work, looking to the cross of Christ for strength against your spiritual enemies; and you will come off ‘conqueror at last,’ through him that hath loved us, and given himself for us.” –Harvey Newcomb “A Practical Directory” (1851) p. 25

And Why Do We Not See Him?

Originally posted on He Hath Said:

“But their eyes were holden that they should not know Him.”-Luke 24:16

The disciples ought to have known Jesus, they had heard His voice so often, and gazed upon that marred face so frequently, that it is wonderful they did not discover Him. Yet is it not so with you also? You have not seen Jesus lately. You have been to His table, and you have not met Him there. You are in a dark trouble this evening, and though He plainly says, “It is I, be not afraid,” yet you cannot discern Him. Alas! our eyes are holden. We know His voice; we have looked into His face; we have leaned our head upon His bosom, and yet, though Christ is very near us, we are saying “O that I knew where I might find Him!” We should know Jesus, for we have the Scriptures to reflect His image…

ON REFORMATION DAY

Originally posted on Samuel at Gilgal:

Samuel A CainOn October 31, 1517, a young monk in Wittenberg, Germany posted 95 Theses on the door of the Castle Church. His intention was to begin a discussion with other scholars in the Catholic Church over the abuse of Scriptures by the church. Little did Luther know that God had chosen him to hammer out the beginnings of what came to be known as the Reformation. Scripture (Sola Scriptura), not tradition, was to be lifted up once again as the true and only word of salvation provided by God.

As the Reformation spread over Europe, the Protestant reformers summarized their basic theological principles into five Latin phrases. These phrases or slogans are known as the Five Solas. They stand in direct contrast to some of the medieval teachings of the Catholic Church. The Five Solas are: “Sola Scriptura” (Scripture alone); “Sola Gratia” (Grace Alone); “Sola Fide” (Faith Alone); “Solus Christus” (Christ…
