“Happy They That Trust In Jesus”

 

HAPPY they who trust in Jesus;
Sweet their portion is and sure;
When the foe on others seizes,
God will keep His own secure:
Happy people!
Happy, though despised and poor.

Since His love and mercy found us,
We are precious in His sight;
Thousands now may fall around us,
Thousands more be put to flight,
But His presence
Keeps us safe by day and night.

Lo, our Saviour never slumbers,
Ever watchful is His care;
Though we cannot boast of numbers,
In His strength secure we are:
Sweet their portion,
Who our Saviour’s kindness share.

As the bird beneath her feathers
Guards the objects of her care,
So the Lord His people gathers,
Spreads His wings, and hides them there:
Thus protected,
All their foes they boldly dare.

~By Thomas Kelly (1769-1854)~

 

“God Is Good”

“God Is Good”

I faced a future all unknown,

No opening could I see,

I heard without the night wind moan,

The ways were dark to me,–

“I cannot face it all alone

O be Thou near to me!”

I had done sums, and sums, and sums,

Inside my aching head.

I’d tried in vain to pierce the glooms

That lay so thick ahead.

But two and two will not make five,

Nor will do when I’m dead.

And then I thought of Him who fed

Five thousand hungry men,

With five small casual loaves of bread,–

Would He were here again!–

Dear God! hast Thou still miracles

For the troubled sons of men?

He has, He will, He worketh still,

In ways most wonderful.

He drew me from the miry clay,

He filled my cup quite full.

And while my heart can speak I’ll tell

His love unspeakable.

“Rest in the Lord!”–I saw it there,

On the tablets of the night.

And, comforted, I dropped my care

Where burdens have no weight.

Then, trustfully, I turned and slept,

And woke, and it was light.

God works to-day as He did of old

For the lightening of men’s woes.

His wonders never can be told,

His goodness no man knows,–

His Love, His Power, His Tenderness,–

Nor shall do till life’s close.

His kindness is so very great,

His greatness is so good.

He looks upon my low estate,

He gives me daily food.

And nothing is too small for Him,–

Yes, truly! God is good.

“Today’s Update: Southern Baptist Pastor Praises Book of Mormon, Says Central Theme is Jesus” ~ Shared from The Berean Call

The Mormon religion is not a Christian religion — I really don’t believe I have to explain to this audience why….But one Southern Baptist pastor says differently.

Dr. Lynn Ridenhour, a licensed Southern Baptist minister says the book of Mormon is rich with Protestant doctrines. Ridenhour, [also] a charismatic pastor who says “I embrace the Book of Mormon,” says that Protestants have been “duped by the canon” into believing that no other works are actually texts inspired by the Holy Spirit.

When my friends ask, “…do you believe in the Book of Mormon?” I respond, “I will answer that, but first I would like for you to answer my question, ‘Why do you believe in the canon of scripture? Would you give me your reasons?’”

“Most can’t. They’ve never thought it through.

“That’s really the issue, you know—not whether or not I believe in the Book of Mormon, but whether or not we as Christians are to embrace the concept of canonization. For that’s the perception here—that by embracing the Book of Mormon I’ve violated scripture’s canon. My friends are convinced I’ve added to the Word of God. I’m convinced we’ve been duped by the canon.”

Of course, the Book of Mormon is a heretical work that has sparked another religion altogether that is not only unbiblical but outright opposed to the gospel of Jesus Christ. He goes on to argue that the “central theme” of the book of Mormon is the “restoration of the covenants” and the “Lordship of Jesus Christ.” Obviously, anyone who has studied Mormonism and the works of Joseph Smith understands that the Jesus presented by the book of Mormon and Mormonism is not the same Jesus of the Bible. The Mormon Jesus is a Jesus who was begotten when God the father came down and had sex with Mary — the Mormon Jesus was not born of a virgin.

Ridenhour says that he was “delighted” to see that the book of Mormon taught the doctrine of being “born again,” yet he fails, once again, to understand the difference between the Mormon version and the biblical version of the born-again experience. The Mormon “born-again” experience is a false gospel that, like every false religion, has added works to the requirements. According to Book of Mormon Central, a website dedicated to expounding the doctrines derived from the book of Mormon, being “born again” is, “a process of spiritual transformation that results from faith, repentance, the ordinance of baptism, the cleansing power of the Holy Ghost, a covenant to serve God, and then enduring obedience to God’s commandments throughout one’s life.”

Despite the heresy and the false gospel presented in the book of Mormon, Ridenhour continues to promote it as though it’s the inspired Word of God. And somehow, Ridenhour continues to hold a Southern Baptist minister license.

Relief Found in the Word of God

Isaiah 40:31

31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

*Of course this is just one of many verses of scripture that we can find between the pages of the Bible to relieve us of everyday anxieties!

I apologize!

I follow and read a lot of good blogs but for some reason I can’t LIKE or comment on your blogs 😞

It says I need to sign in- even though I already am. I do it again and for some reason WordPress just won’t let me.

“Love not the world…”

1 John 2:15-16

15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.

Amen and Amen!

Don’t let a false gospel creep into your “house”!

❤️ 2 Timothy 3:5-7

5 Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

6 For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,

7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

There is a lot of this going on right now. Just as it has been said would be.

How can one deny the power of God when we constantly see His words being fulfilled?!

No religion that tells us to go to others in prayer is the right way.

There is only ONE WAY to God the Father and His NAME is above all names-God makes that quite clear! His name is Jesus ❤️

God IS in control. Let your light so shine!!!

Who am I to question Him when it comes to circumstances? Strange weather?

I am no one. He IS everything. So I will trust HIM not the world’s negativity!

He knows what is best- so I am going to continue to embrace Him and love with the LOVE He has given us to share!

Why? Because someone else out there needs the LOVE of God, too! Someone did that for me because of their faith no matter the backlash that I gave them!

People are not mad at us they are mad at the Lord-He can handle them!!!

LET’S ENDURE UNTIL THE END BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST!!

❤️ Mark 13:13

13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST!!

❤️Matthew 5:15-16

15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻❤️🙏🏻
