Monday August 13th – Open Thread

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    All This And A Crown, Too

    “There is laid up for me the crown of righteousness.” 2 Timothy 4:8

    Doubting one, you have often thought, “I fear I shall never reach Heaven.” Fear not! All the redeemed people of God shall be taken there. I like the quaint saying of a dying Christian who exclaimed, “I have no fear of going Home; I have sent all ahead of me. God’s finger is on the latch of my door and I am ready, yea, eager for Him to enter.” “But,” said one, “are you not afraid lest you should miss your inheritance?” “Afraid? Nay,” said he, “How can I miss it? There is one crown in Heaven which the angel Gabriel could not wear; it will fit no head but mine. There is one place on my Savior’s throne which Paul the apostle could not fill; it was made for me, and I shall have it.”

    O believer, what a joyous thought! Your portion is secure. “There remains a rest.”(1) But cannot I forfeit it? No, it is yours by inheritance (2). If I be a child of God I shall not lose it. It is mine as surely as if I were already there.

    Come with me, believer, and let us sit upon the top of Mt. Nebo and view the goodly land, even Zion. Do you see that sparkling river of living water glistening in the sunlight, and across it do you see the pinnacles of the Eternal City? Do you mark the pleasant country, and all its secure and joyous inhabitants? Know, then, that if we could fly across to there just now you would see written upon one of its many mansions “This awaits such a one, reserved for him; he shall be caught up in glory to dwell here in exceeding joy with God forever.”(3)

    Poor doubting one! If you could only see the fair inheritance; it is yours. For if by God’s grace you have turned from your sin and by faith alone received the Lord Jesus as your Savior, believed in His finished work for you dying on the cross as your substitute, and, transformed by the Spirit of God, confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead (4), then you have been born anew from above (5); He is yours and you are His. You are God’s adopted child in Christ! A glorious dwelling place remains reserved for you, personally prepared for you by your Savior (6), a robe of righteousness made just for you, a crown of righteousness laid up for you — all specially provided, just for you. No one else shall have your portion, for indeed it was reserved long ago for you by promise (7). Beloved believing one, there will be no vacant mansions or missing sheep in Heaven when all the saints are gathered in (8).

    Why Paul’s Ministry Was So Effective

    We have Christian friends who have a close relationship with an outstanding Bible teacher. They tell the story of going on a cruise with this teacher. At the time, the husband knew Christ as Savior, but the wife was still unsaved and somewhat leery of letting go of the doctrines learned as a child in her church.

    The teacher disarmed this lady by seeking her out, sharing a meal with them, being very personable, and lovingly sharing the Scriptures she needed. The end result was that this lady trusted Christ as her Savior, became a vibrant believer, and the couple became lifelong friends with this teacher who had been so used of the Lord in their lives.

    Have you ever wondered how the Apostle Paul had such an effective ministry with so many during his lifetime? He gives his testimony about this in the Scriptures. It began with a genuine burden for lost souls.
    Paul tells us “That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren…” (Rom. 9:2,3).

    Lost souls seem to be able to sense when one deeply cares for their spiritual welfare. Paul was ready to share the eternal life-giving gospel “in season, out of season” (2 Tim. 4:2).

    No matter where he was, from prison to the palace, he was constantly giving out the message of salvation by grace alone. He sowed the seed of the gospel frequently enough that many were saved. Paul said, “I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more” (1 Cor. 9:19).

    His attitude was one of surrendering as a willing bond slave to the Savior; then, he served others, in a spiritual sense, willingly and humbly attending to their needs. Paul approached the lost in a personable way, finding common ground with the lost so he’d have greater credibility when presenting the gospel. He says: “…unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews…

    To them that are without law, as without law…I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some…” (1 Cor. 9:20-22). Paul was also tireless, working “night and day” (Acts 20:31; 1 Thes. 2:9), in his care and prayer for those he led to Christ.

    If you’d like to be more greatly used of the Lord, follow this pattern used by the Apostle Paul and the teacher who reached our friend.

      Sorry, but I disagree with this pastor. Paul’s teachings were very different from Jesus’s. Jesus clearly taught that belief, confession of faith is not enough. Faith MUST be backed up by obedience to the Mosiac moral laws (as he told the rich young ruler and scribe), repentence and good deeds. As he said, “When the dead hear the voice of God, they will awaken. Those who have DONE good to eternal life; those who have PRACTICED evil, to eternal damnation.” Nothing about faith alone or believing in Jesus’s “atoning sacrifice”. Jesus was a jew and very much concerned with deeds. Paul too often says that we receive salvation by belief alone. He never knew Jesus and fixated on the final few days of his life, saying that we are saved by Jesus substitionary atoning blood sacrifice. He almost never mentions Jesus’s actual words and teachings and the fact that salvation is a long hard road starting from a very narrow gate. Hence the doctrine of Cheap Grace and Easy Believism that permeates the church today. It’s a good idea to always check paul’s words against the only teacher and master we should be paying attention to: Jesus of Nazareth.

    FED Up With Creeping Socialism, Conservatives In BIG Push For Constitutional Convention

    so…what’s being “pushed”….

    “On the agenda for convention of the states : an amendment to require a balanced budget, term limits for Congress, repealing the federal income tax, and giving states the power to veto any federal law, supreme court decision or executive order with a three fifths vote from the states .”

    2/3 or 34 states are required to pass resolutions calling for a Constitutional Convention, at which point Congress would be required to convene one under Article V.

    according to the article, Michigan became the 34th state in 2014.

      “a ‘bilateral femoral osteotomy’”

      The most important thing for her to do afterwards is follow the surgeon’s and physical therapists’ directions EXACTLY for her recuperation. I am not familiar with that particular procedure, but I know failure to follow directions such as taking “shortcuts” or walking before you are suppose to can often lead to permanent damage that cannot be reversed after other surgeries involving the lower extremities.

      I don’t know if you have experience in dealing with “special needs” & education. Depending on the complexity of your child’s needs there are special laws in place to protect your child in school & education. IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) & Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act provide specific protections.

      http://www.yellowpagesforkids.com/

      wrightslaw.com

      These are 2 sites with reams of info on managing the special needs of a child. The top one has a clickable map so you can find state-level resources to assist you.

      My son had a Liver Transplant about a month before his Junior Year of High School began & we were able to incorporate many of his (temporary) medical needs into his IEP (Individualized Education Plan, under IDEA) so that returning to school was somewhat less burdensome than it would otherwise have been.

      If you get the chance, please post a brief update about how you & your daughter are doing. God Bless & Keep you both during this challenging, healing season…

    Ezra Levant from the Rebel Media August 9th
    They’re trying to send Tommy Robinson back to prison. (Please help.)

    Tommy Robinson just phoned me.

    He’s supposed to be having a quiet vacation with his family. But he can’t. He’s had to go to the hospital twice, because of the physical abuse he suffered in prison.

    They starved him. He lost 40 pounds in two months. He clearly has a form of post-traumatic stress, too, from being locked up in solitary confinement for so long, and being constantly threatened with violence from Muslim prison gangs.

    You can see that just by watching the video of him when he was released. He’s not quite himself yet. But, he will get better. Even just being out of prison, and playing with his kids, will help him heal.

    Tommy told me the bad news: they want to send him back to prison.

    Three weeks from now.

    On September 4th.

    It’s outrageous.

    Just last week the Court of Appeal confirmed that Tommy was improperly tried, improperly convicted, improperly sentenced, and improperly imprisoned. That’s why they set him free. It was a total vindication of everything Tommy had said.

    But now the UK government wants to do it all over again. They’re not done with Tommy.

    They want to put him through a second trial — for the exact same thing, his Facebook livestream that day back in May, in Leeds.

    They want to put him in prison again. That will probably kill him.

    You saw him after two months in solitary confinement. Now imagine him after 13 months.

    Tommy is in jeopardy. So Tommy phoned me and asked me to help him one more time. Just until he’s better.

    And I told him I would.

    He needs help to pay for the lawyers — because they’ve got to prepare for that September hearing. So I’ve talked to the lawyers. They’ve started preparing.

    And I’ve set up a crowdfunding page again. You can contribute below or click here to donate in British pounds.

    The British government has unlimited funds. I think they’re trying to break Tommy — physically, psychologically and now financially.

    There’s no way he can do this by himself. But if enough of us stand together with him, we’ve got a chance.

    We’re also starting a massive petition, that we will personally deliver to the new Attorney General, demanding that they suspend their persecution of Tommy.

    Tommy’s already served two months in prison improperly — it’s astounding that the UK government wants him to serve more time. Please sign our petition here.

    I thought we were done last week with the Court of Appeal victory. But we’re not. The UK government wants to fight with Tommy — now that they think he’s weakened. Well, they forgot about one thing — they forgot about us, didn’t they?

    Please help with Tommy’s legal fees. His lawyers need to prepare for the case immediately. You can contribute below now — let’s help our friend one last time.

    If you prefer to send a cheque by snail mail, please write “Tommy” in the memo line and make it payable to “The Rebel” and send it to:

    This week, Joe Bonamassa featured a video of the Marshall Tucker Band (MTB) performing his favorite song, “Can’t You See.” I agree it’s a great tune but my all time favorite MTB song is “Heard It In A Love Song” from their Carolina Dreams album. This performance is from 1981. Loved that refrain, “Cain’t be wrong.” 😍

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.

    Gen 6:5 ¶ And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. Gen 6:7 And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. Gen 6:8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.
