Unconditional Love PDF Print E-mail

A thought for today:

Though God is not pleased with sin, He loves you no less when you are engaged in grievous sin. Though God is pleased with righteousness, He loves you no more when you are walking obediently. His love is everlasting and unconditional.

"Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." - Romans 8:35-39

"The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee." - Jeremiah 31:3

Isn't that amazing?

 
Interesting Quote: Public Education and Humanism PDF Print E-mail

I found this quote very interesting. I stumbled upon it while reading the newly released 2nd Edition of Be Ready To Answer by Elder Michael Gowens. See if the words trouble you as they should.

‎"Education is thus a most powerful ally of Humanism, and every American public school is a school of Humanism." - Charles Francis Potter, a signer of the Humanist Manifesto


Troubling indeed. This is the primary reason our family chooses to home school and also the primary reason home schooling is so fervently opposed by the far left in America.

No Pleasure in Wickedness PDF Print E-mail

For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. - Psalms 5:4

My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure... - Isaiah 46:1

For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. - Philippians 2:13


Observe, God has no pleasure in wickedness, period. This includes your own personal sinfulness and the sinful actions of others.

Concerning the actions of God, He will do all His Will according to His good pleasure, but at no time is He pleased with wickedness. This means that God is never the cause of sin, ever.

In consideration of our daily activities and behavior, since God works in us to do His good pleasure, this CANNOT include sin because God has no pleasure with sin. The sinful actions we do are from the nature of the flesh, a product of the sin of Adam.

Again, God has no pleasure in wickedness, period.

My Soul Thirsteth PDF Print E-mail

This evening I would like to share with you the 42 Psalm. No extra commentary is needed for this beautiful out pouring of the soul.

Psalms 42
1 To the chief Musician, Maschil, for the sons of Korah. As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.
2 My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?
3 My tears have been my meat day and night, while they continually say unto me, Where is thy God?
4 When I remember these things, I pour out my soul in me: for I had gone with the multitude, I went with them to the house of God, with the voice of joy and praise, with a multitude that kept holyday.
5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance.
6 O my God, my soul is cast down within me: therefore will I remember thee from the land of Jordan, and of the Hermonites, from the hill Mizar.
7 Deep calleth unto deep at the noise of thy waterspouts: all thy waves and thy billows are gone over me.
8 Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
9 I will say unto God my rock, Why hast thou forgotten me? why go I mourning because of the oppression of the enemy?
10 As with a sword in my bones, mine enemies reproach me; while they say daily unto me, Where is thy God?
11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted within me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God.

Sermon Notes From June 26, 2011 PDF Print E-mail
Written by Josh Winslett

Most Surely Believed: The Godhead

  • Reminder that articles of faith and confessions are not cannon.

  • Article 1. We believe in one true and living God, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, and these three are one.

Waldensian 1120 2. We believe that there is one God - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Midland Confession 1st. We believe and profess, that there is only one true God, who is our God, who is eternal, almighty, unchangeable, infinite, and incomprehensible; who is a Spirit, having His being in Himself, and giveth being to all creatures; He doth what He will, in heaven and earth; working all things according to the counsel of His own will.

2nd. That this infinite Being is set forth to be the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three agree in one.

London Confession 1689 01.02 Chapter 2 Of God and of the Holy Trinity 3. In this divine and infinite Being there are three subsistences, the Father, the Word or Son, and Holy Spirit, (27) of one substance, power, and eternity, each having the whole divine essence, yet the essence undivided,(28) the Father is of none, neither begotten nor proceeding; the Son is eternally begotten of the Father;(29) the Holy Spirit proceeding from the Father and the Son;(30) all infinite, without beginning, therefore but one God, who is not to be divided in nature and being, but distinguished by several peculiar relative properties and personal relations; which doctrine of the Trinity is the foundation of all our communion with God, and comfortable dependence upon Him.

 

  • First thing to remember- We can’t fully understand the Godhead -1 Timothy 3:16

 

  • What is the Godhead -1 John 5:7

    Deuteronomy 6:4 One God

    Genesis 1:26 Let US- not royal plural

    John 1:1-3 In beginning was Word, Word is God

    John 3:13 Jesus was from heaven, on earth, and in heaven

    John 14:11 I am in the Father, and the Father in me….. the very works' sake.

    John 10:30 I and my Father are one!

 

 

  • All powerful, ever present, omniscient, self sustaining

    Psalms 115:3 God does whatsoever he pleases

    Daniel 4:34-35 Power on earth inhabitants and heavens armies

    Psalms 139:1-24 God is omniscient and omnipresent

    Exodus 3:14 The great I AM; self sustaining

    Psalms 90:2 Everlasting to everlasting

    This God does not change –Malachi 3:6

 

 

  • Dumb idols? Our God Lives!!

    Psalms 115 Dumb Idiols

    Psalms 42:2 Living God

    Hebrews 4:15 He lives and feels our problems, Our God!!
