“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)~

 

Would anyone use Chris Farley as a role model for physical fitness? Then why…?

Shame on you Evangelicals that support and use M. Teresa quotes.. you have been bequiled.
*Revelation 18:4
4 And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.

Is Jesus the Only Way to God?JEW

By James Emery White

InterVarsity Press, 2010, 32 pages

What goes through the minds of some Evangelicals?!?! I bought this small booklet by James Emery White, mega-church pastor and former president of Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, thinking it would proclaim Christ as the ONLY way to salvation. My original plan was to present it to a Catholic friend who also dabbles in Hinduism and Buddhism. However, “Is Jesus the Only Way to God?” is a major disappointment. Yes, White claims that Jesus is the only pathway to God but uses C. S. Lewis, Mother Teresa, and J. R. R. Tolkien as his examples of stalwart Christians. Lewis’s “Mere Christianity” is adored by Evangelicals but the author and educator was an Anglican who believed in sacramental grace and purgatory. Mother Teresa and Tolkien were Roman Catholics who believed in salvation by sacramental grace and by perfectly…

Holy Water?

John 8:32 ” And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
YES! FREE INDEED! ❤ ❤ ❤

Catholic worship relies heavily on “sacramentals,” material objects or prayers that are believed to be “sacred signs” that prepare a person to receive sacramental grace and dispose that person to cooperate with that grace. 000TheMagicVineHolyWater2013.jpg.w180h240Examples would include crucifixes, medals, scapulars, rosaries, ashes, palms, images, statues, candles, stations of the cross, and novenas.

“Holy water” is another sacramental widely used in Catholic worship. Catholics believe water blessed by a priest wards off evil. Catholics dip their finger/s into the holy water font at church and bless themselves by making the sign of the cross by touching their forehead, lower chest, and both shoulders. Some Catholics even have holy water fonts in their homes.

There is no mention of sacramentals in the Bible. They have their roots in pagan superstition and were allowed to creep into the early church.

John 8:32 ” And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

“And every priest stands daily at his service, offering repeatedly the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins…”

A few days ago, I was listening to the 8/8/17 podcast of the “Calling All Catholics” talk radio show (The Station of the Cross, WLOF [Our Lady of Fatima], 101.7 FM, Buffalo, NY), with this particular broadcast featuring Jesuit priest, Robert McTeigue, and moderator, Steve Quebral.

A variety of topics were discussed including the current controversy that’s raging throughout the church over the “Ad Orientem” question.

Ad Orientum? What exactly is that, you ask? Okay, allow me to share a little background information.

Back in the early 1960s, moderate and liberal Catholic prelates pushed for church practices to be modernized. The old, dusty rituals were done pretty much as they had been done for centuries, including the mass being conducted in Latin. “Who wants to sit through an hour-long liturgical ritual they can’t understand?,” they asked. Pope John XXIII  obliged and called together the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), which made…

Willow Creek Summit

Can you imagine Jesus and His disciples attending a “summit” to sharpen their “leadership” skills?

How about this for a “kicker”:  Jesus and His disciples listening to and following the leadership “skills” from those of the secular world.

Me neither…

This Willow Creek Summit has a huge following. So many minds being corrupted. Shouldn’t God’s Holy Spirit be our leader and make us bold? What happen to that reality? What happened to God’s people being “SEPARATE” from the world?

We are to “keep it simple”. God’s Word says so! Right here in Corinthians:

*2 Corinthians 11:3-4*

But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

P.S. Just because 1oo’s of thousands are following this “summit” does not mean it is right. How many followed Jesus when He was physically here…

Shared for the love of God’s Truth. Not mine. His.

On Confession of Faith

John 12:44-50

 

44 Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

Amen and Amen!

Need to satisfy your “hunger”?

Then…

Psalm 34:

O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

Filling that “void’ in your life with food and things of this world may satisfy you for a time but it will NEVER nourish you the way you NEED to be nourished. How often have you filled up on the things of this world only left to feel empty-dried out- and then back to  “starving” again?

I know how that feels, I have been there. There is an answer to CURE our inadequate “consumptions” that do not nourish our minds, bodies, hearts or souls. No pills needed and no withdrawals!

Taste and see that the Lord is ABLE to feed your soul AND satisfy your “hungry” heart! You WILL be blessed more than you ever thought you could be! TRUST ON AND IN HIM!

HE IS GOOD LIKE THAT!
