Do not try to “improve” on preaching with lights, camera, drama.

If preaching is Holy Ghost anointed it CANNOT be improved.

“…it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save…” 1Co 1.21

The Blessed, Triune God-Head can do more in a few seconds

than all the “Hollywood wannabes” can do in a life-time.

You can try to glorify your own little name

“Prop it up” a minute (in your “moment” of fame),

Then turning, limp off life’s stage – increasingly lame.

But God’s name, anciently Past, Future, remains the same.

ON THIS DATE

Queen Elizabeth I of England died 3/24/1603.  This daughter of Henry VIII (& second wife, Anne Boleyn) was born 9/7/1533 at Greenwich.  She became queen (after her half-sister’s death) November 1558.  She was well educated (commanded 6 languages) & as known, never married, being called the “Virgin Queen.”

She did England the favor of making the Anglican Church the “state church” but held a short (plain) theology. She is said to have said she would not put “windows into men’s souls…there is only one Jesus Christ & all the rest is a dispute over trifles.”  This final break with Rome brought 25 attempts on her life & brought the catholic Spanish Armada.  God helped (via storm) defeat it & preserved Christian England.  

This date’s second British event is naturally the next ascension – 3/24/1603, King James VI of Scotland (1566-1625) became also James I of England.  He was next in line being a descendent of Henry VIII.  James I became the most published monarch; had he not be of royal blood he would’ve been a compliment to any university of his day.  Some vehement anti-KJV men have dropped low enough to attack the CLASSIC of all Classics by attacking James I.  Though human, his monarchy, his morals, & his marriage (1 wife – 8 children) show God allowed a descent man to preserve His Word in TODAY’S lingua franca.
