The Fast I Have Chosen Part 1

How goes it with you this time of year, dear reader? Are you ready to make room for Jesus, for Emmanuel  – God With Us? In the scheme of things, are there “stable” conditions for this? Or is there “no room at the inn”?     Curious?    Read more:

November Night

“He lays the beams of His upper chambers in the waters;

He makes the clouds His chariot; He walks upon the wings of the wind;

He makes the winds His messengers, Flaming fire His ministers.

He established the earth upon its foundations,

So that it will not totter forever and ever.”

Psalm 104:3-5

“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”

Hebrews 11:1-3

Confronting Christophobia

As Christians confronting a Christophobic world, it might be important to ask ourselves, what do we actually stand for? Are we slowly (or not so slowly) being conditioned to be Christophobic and to hate ourselves, all that we stand for, and eventually even our Lord Jesus Christ?

Ryle Had It Right

“Let it be a settled resolution with us to ‘keep our hearts with all diligence,’ all the days of our lives. (Prov. 4:23.) Even after renewal they are weak. Even after putting on the new man they are deceitful. Let us never forget that our chief danger is from within. The world and the devil combined, cannot do us so much harm as our own hearts will, if we do not watch and pray. Happy is he who remembers daily the words of Solomon, ‘One who trusts in himself is a fool.'” (Prov. 28:26.) ~ J.C. Ryle

“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9

The “heart” is not a blood pumping organ in the middle of your chest. It is the core of being, and without regeneration and the path of the cross, it cannot be trusted. This is one of the chief differences between Biblical Christian teaching and New Age thought which encourages people to “follow their heart.” This idea has infiltrated the churches to dismantle the truth of our need of the Savior. Ultimately it will lead you astray and entangle you in many a snare.

Been there, done that. Thank you, Jesus, for Your Holy Spirit’s power to deliver from darkness and deception.
