ON THIS DATE 

Civilla Durfee Martin died 3/9/1948 at Atlanta, GA.  She was born 8/21/1869 at Jordan, Nova Scotia, Canada.  She was the daughter of James & Irene (Harding) Holden & became a school teacher.  Later she married Walter Stillman Martin, a Harvard graduate, who was a preacher & a musician.

 She left a history of one of her song favorites:

“I was confined to a sick bed in a Bible school in Lestershire [now Johnson City], NY husband was spending several weeks at the school, making a songbook for the president of the school. God Will Take Care of You was written one Sunday afternoon while my husband went to a preaching appointment. When he returned I gave the words to him. He immediately sat down to his little Bilhorn organ and wrote the music. That evening he and two of the teachers sang the completed song. It was then printed in the songbook he was compiling for the school.

 

Be not dismayed whate’er betide, God will take care of you;

Beneath His wings of love abide, God will take care of you.

Refrain

God will take care of you, Through every day, over all the way;

He will take care of you, God will take care of you.

“…the devil’s cunning…if he cannot hurt by persecuting and destroying,

he doth it under color of correcting and building up.

Earth’s night is coming with such speed.

Dark’ning shades fall – take heed.

Evil shall multiply worse and worse

Sinful sowing – a harvest of the curse,

Do not expect world-wide-awakening

Satan’s grip – death’s final shaking

Await the world’s wide worship of self,

Fully more evil than myth, fairy, or elf

Antichrist comes; perhaps lives this hour,

Shaping his groups, sharpening his power,

Earth and heaven will both pass away.

The above could sound like a gloomy day

The Bible foretells of earthquake and dark,

Pestilence, famine, sights harsh and stark.

Sin, so rampant since Eve’s disloyal act

Has grown, “gathered steam” on its wild track

Today’s the day Friend, if you’re going to come back.

– eab,  3/6/12

There has always been (NT & since) a line between believers & the state. God & “Caesar” are not partners.

It’s a mistaken mind which seeks to erase that line. 

No Christian Entity needs (or should desire) the approval of a state. 

State – “christian” coalitions can be dangerous.

“And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature

after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth

after his kind: and it was so.” Gen 1.24

>> I’ll easily take Sovereign God’s “after his kind” over a silly evolutionist’s “missing link.” <<
