Main reason you’ve not seen posts last two day? It’s time to prepare to have a garden & “green thumb” or no, I’m trying to do that. Been making another (different) raised bed for okra. 5/3/18

 

Pro 22.6

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

 

If you were the devil would you leave Home Schooling alone? Of course not. Home schooling parents have the greatest possible avenues toward holy influence. But a hasty decision about text materials, careless associations with other home schoolers who aren’t strongly interested in heaven, an over emphasis on the same subjects the state school is pushing, can do great damage to this golden opportunity. Don’t muff it.

Speaking of George Whitefield, “…it is doubtful whether he ever made a congregation laugh…”

– Able Stevens, History of Meth.

 

“…If I  [Jesus Christ speaking] be lifted up…” (Joh 12.32) – Is Christ lifted up by our conversations?  By our clothing?  Is He lifted up by our cultural involvement?  By our financial commitments?

HIS SUN  

If all you have is a single tree

Beneath which to sit or stand,

And all beyond is a

Nondescript, ordinary land.

No mountain draws you eye

To its upward soaring crest,

No river rolls at your feet

Churning at a river’s best.

And you don’t even have a hill

On which to contemplate.

Your world seems so “samish”

Nothing your quick mind to bait;

Thank God each day

For His warm rising sun,

For its slipping upward, then

Downward till it’s day is fully run.

And enjoy its change of shadow,

First great then lessening through noon,

Then an opposite shadow grows,

Filling space slowly or soon.

The daily sun gives the plain,

The simple landscape, though flat,

A lustrous changing, almost living.

Friend, enjoy where ever you’re “at.”

Jas 2.19

“Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.”

 

You don’t feel at home in this world? That’s encouraging. Please though, for your soul’s sake, do not read that as a sure sign you’re a Christian. Many a level-headed, non-faddish sinner is “put out” with this or that aspect of a world headed to perdition. (What un-awakened sinners don’t see but saints do, is that all sin connects back to satan.) No thinking Christian is more “at-home” on earth than he was a year ago.

[Its] almost impossible to get Christians to attend a service where God is the only attraction.”

– A W Tozer

 

Read the prophetic Books/Book sections (OT & NT) & ask the Author to help you understand what He wants/needs you to understand *today*. (Your understanding may well be deeper a year later.) Flee, however, whole-sale acceptance of any man’s “prophecy charts.” In the process, be much more in love with the Christ of Prophecy than with prophecy itself.
