‘Farther Along’

Joshua sent us this hymn performed by his brother, Jeremy–Farther Along. There are echoes of the Psalms in here: makes me think of Psalm 73 in particular. “Surely God is good to Israel… But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled, my steps had nearly slipped…” Thank you, Swanson brothers.

Let’s Hear from You!

Listening Ears & Vocabulary —

Hey, I’ve found a new hymn by the Voice of Eden–and I will post it today if you guys want to hear it. I’ve never heard it before, but I’m sure it’ll be great.

But I do want to know your pleasure! This blog needs waking up! King COVID has cast a spell of drowsiness over the whole world, drowsiness and forgetfulness–don’t tell me you haven’t caught yourselves forgetting to do certain errands that are important but you forgot them anyway. That phenomenon is spreading all over the earth.

We can fight it with hymns! Our King Jesus Christ is mightier than theirs.

As another hymn puts it, “Rise up, O men [and women!] of God.” And as we sometimes sang in Sunday school, with more understanding than we could have realized, “Wise up, O men of God.”

Satan’s Puppet Show

Vatican Invites Abortion Advocate Chelsea Clinton [and New Age Leader  Deepak Chopra] To Talk About 'Health' And The 'Soul'" - Lighthouse Trails  Research Project

Do I smell brimstone?

I fully intended not to write up any nooze today, but this story below is so outrageous, so indistinguishable from really nasty satire, and so provoking, that I just can’t help myself.

Next month, as part of an sinternational [Let the typo stand!] Vatican health conference, the Red Pope, Francis I, will buddy up with…. (God, give me strength)…

Doc Fauci, abortion champ and all-around sage Chelsea Clinton, and New Age wally Deepak Chopra–

Wait, wait, stop! What is this–a PBS fund-raiser? April Fool’s was two weeks ago, you missed it!

No. Sorry. It’s true. The Pope, Chelsea Clinton, Deepak Chopra, along with Big Pharma CEOs and assorted celebrities, movie stars, rock stars, will all get together to discuss the interplay of “mind, body, and soul”–you win a tin-foil hat if you can manage to debase all three.

Really? This is a Bosch painting isn’t it? With some input from Dali. This can’t possibly be a Church function. Say it ain’t so, Joe!

I’m afraid it is, kid.

So the Pope is going to yoke himself up with the worldliest of the worldly, and God keep us well away from whatever furrow they might plow. Protect us, O Lord, for your name’s sake! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

‘A Mighty Fortress’ (Fountainview Academy)

Note the backdrop: the Coliseum, symbol of the power and might of Rome, where Christians were put to death for their faith–now a ruin.

Someday this hymn will be sung beside the ruins of todays globalist, humanist, pseudocivilization.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God, by Martin Luther; sung by the students from Fountainview Academy.

A Nooze-Free Saturday?

I have to do things to keep my sanity. One of those things is to refrain from writing up the nooze on weekends. Not that I can avoid the nooze–who can? But I can draw the line at writing it.

There’s stuff going on out there–produced on purpose, by various people–that’s nothing but a one-way ticket to Hell. A lot of the villains are inordinately rich and powerful, and can’t be stopped by ordinary means.

Oops. See that? Drifting into the nooze while trying not to. That’s how insidious it is.

We can always pray the Lord to fight for us. We can put our trust in the Judge of all the earth to protect the right. In fact, never mind “can.” We have to.

The pot will keep on boiling over the weekend whether we watch it or not. It will still be there on Monday.

Plenty of time to get our hands burned then.

Special Encore: ‘Up From the Grave He Arose’

I am strongly moved to post this hymn again today, don’t wait for tomorrow–Up from the Grave He Arose, by the Voice of Eden. I don’t know why I need to do this, but I try to heed such promptings.

We are saved because He arose. And when He returns to claim His throne, He will banish sin and death and all their servants with them, never to be seen or heard again.

Hell will be total separation from God, forever; and those who’ve asked for it will get it.

‘How Much Worse Can It Get?’ (2017)

See the source image

Here it is–pure grinning idiocy wedded to pure evil.

I’m afraid we’ll soon find out how much worse it can get. Having stolen our country out from under us, Democrats are fanatically committed to the whole transgender mania.

How Much Worse Can It Get?

This is, of course, just plain wrong, just plain crazy, and just plain evil. Their end goal is to force us to say it isn’t. Once they can beat us into “celebrating” transgender, that’s it, we’re done.

May the Judge of all the earth deliver us. Have mercy on us, O God, for your name’s sake.

‘How Deep the Father’s Love For Us’

What say we start with a hymn by Fernando Ortega? How Deep the Father’s Love For Us comes with no frills–just the message of God’s all-encompassing love, and salvation in Jesus Christ Our Lord.

‘Gaudete’ (with Maddy Prior)

I couldn’t resist this a capella rendition of the hymn, Gaudete, by Steeleye Span with Maddy Prior–wow! This really is making a joyful noise unto the Lord.

‘O, Worship the King’

This was the first hymn I ever learned to play on the harmonica–O Worship the King, sung here by the Pilgrim Mennonite Mission.

Hymn requests, anyone?
