Fruits of Surrendered Aggravation

From Lisa Beth’s blog, “The Burning Lamp”

It’s those minor irritations that really test you. I ought to know: I fail.   –LD

theburninglampdotcom

According to the famous Strongs Bible Concordance, “aggravation” is not in the Bible.  As part of our flesh nature, I’m sure it’s there.  Irritation, agitation, annoyance, anger, aggravation arose up in some beloved saints and others.   Naaman the Syrian traveled far to reach Elisha but, aggravated, left with a demonstrative huff, almost forfeiting his infamous healing.    After receiving God’s call and chastisement, then witnessing the Lord’s mercy upon Nineveh, Jonah is stewing in aggravation by chapter 4.

Was Moses aggravated, when he disobeyed God, striking the Rock?  This fleshly outburst woefully cost him entry into the treasured promised land.

But examples of godly longsuffering patience abound and stand tall upon spiritual pedestals.   Joseph, Daniel, the Apostle Paul…God’s people harassed, provoked, deprived and mocked while faithfully enduring with patience, longsuffering and trust in the Sovereign God.

Now I’m Cheesed Off!

See the source image

Once you go down there, you can never come back up

Back in September some perky publicist pitched me a book “re-telling Bible stories without an angry God.” I didn’t think we needed anything like that. We’ve already gotten enough to incur a spiritual pollution. So I told them to get lost.

Would you believe it? He’s back! Back with another invitation to read and review this monstrosity. I mean, come on! “Gay lovers in the sanctuary cities of Sodom and Gomorrha”? Does this come with a barf bag, or do you have to provide your own?

Apparently my first refusal, months ago, struck the perky publicist as somehow ambiguous. So I guess I’ll have to try again.

No, no, no! Not if you put a gun to my head! I will not soil myself, I will not insult my own soul, by reading this toxic, heretical trash. And you’ve signed yourself up for a long, long stay at Club Hell, unless you repent now and tell the author you will not represent him anymore.

Personally, if it were up to me, I’d smite the pair of you with lightning and be done with it today: “So perish all who do the same!” You’re lucky the God you hate is much more merciful than I am.

But if He listens to me, he’d smite you.


‘The Persistence of Leftism’ (2017)

Painting a couple of melted clocks seems like a lot of trouble to go to, for very little gain, but it made Salvador Dali famous.

Even more persistent than Dali’s memory is the evil in the human heart that leads us to leftism.

“The human heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked. Who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9)

It’s important to defeat the Left wherever and whenever it reaches out for power; but remember that unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it (Psalm 127:1).

(If you were wondering where was the link to the original 2017 post–well, I forgot to include it! The error has been rectified.)


‘The Lost River of Eden’ (2015)

See the source image

The Bible preserves knowledge of ancient things that would otherwise be lost–such as this ancient river that once flowed across Arabia, but whose course can now be detected only by satellite photography.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/12/20/the-lost-river-of-eden/

At the very latest, scientists say, this river stopped flowing around 2,000 B.C.–if not much sooner. Yet there it is in the Book of Genesis.

Maybe the Bible scribes had satellite photos of it?


Happy New Year “2020”

A New Year’s message from Dawn’s blog, Drawing Closer to Christ. We are not alone!

Drawing Closer to Christ

Isaiah 40:31 AMP, ”But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Happy New Year to you! It is my prayer that you have a Spirit lead 2020 as you wait in expectancy for all God has planned for you. May you continue to draw closer to Christ and find comfort, peace, healing, and direction in the truth of His unfailing Word. I pray that you would find security and strength in knowing that God’s presence is with you and that His love for you will never cease.

A Warning from Malachi

See the source image

“Well, ya see, all religions, like, they’re all true and it don’t matter what you believe or what you worship, as long as you’re sincere… so you can worship stuff like this!”

My daily Bible reading this morning brought me to this verse, Malachi 2:17–

Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied Him? when ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and He delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

Through the prophet Malachi, God aimed this rebuke and warning at the church leaders of those days, the priests of the Temple in Jerusalem.

“Hmmm, let’s see, what can we do to get with the times? And win some worldly praise!  How about some gay marriages? We can say the Bible’s wrong about that. Ooh-ooh! How about this–bring an effigy of an Amazon river goddess into the holy place and have the clergy treat it as if it were really some kind of deity?”

Can today’s churchmen, who make it all up as they go along, honestly believe that God is pleased with them? And yet they ask, “Where is the God of judgment?” Which means, “See? We’re getting away with it! God won’t stop us!”

Yo, sunshine! Do you think God won’t judge you? Do you think he sees the things you do, and hears the things you say, and takes delight in you?

He’s talking to you, babe. And you’d better listen.


‘You’ve Got to Read This’ (2016)

Notes on the Parables of Our Lord

Notes on the Parables of Our Lord, by Richard Chenevix Trench–doesn’t sound all that inviting, does it? But if you’re looking for an after-Christmas present for yourself or someone that you love, this little book is golden.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/05/29/youve-got-to-read-this/

The thing about Our Lord’s parables, as John MacArthur observes, is, you’ve got to study them. Devote some thought to them. The more, the better. And you’ll be amazed by the unexpected treasures you discover.

Rev. Trench, speaking to us out of the 19th century, can help us make discoveries in Scripture.

What better way to start the year?


Man Child

From the unashamedofjesus.org blog:

See also Psalm 2:8-9–Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron…

Christ shall have dominion!

Unashamed of Jesus

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. Revelation 12:1-2

Often when we think about Christmas or the birth of Christ, we don’t often think of the book of Revelation. However the book of Revelation clearly shows how Jesus coming into this world to destroy Satan and the war between them.

The book of Revelation is often interpreted many ways, the woman here is sometimes interpreted as Mary herself, some would says its symbolic of the Church. I believe the woman is symbolic of Israel, notice the twelve stars on her head representing the 12 tribes of Israel. Jesus the Messiah (Christ) came through Israel.

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a…

‘Judging God’ (2015)

Image result for images of human sacrifice to moloch

So is this how it works? In a book which you say is mostly myths and legends, mostly not true, a Person whom you say does not exist took actions which you say never happened–and you hate Him passionately for it?

https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/15/judging-god/

Why are liberals so much more upset about Canaanites getting iced in the Old Testament than babies getting aborted by the millions virtually before their eyes?

Chill out, sunshine. It was only Canaanite tissue being removed for Israelite women’s health.

 


‘The Certainty of God’s Will’

See the source image

There’s a lot of good stuff on the Chalcedon website today, and I hope some of you will visit it. But I’d like to highlight this message Mark Rushdoony wrote, the day after Thanksgiving.

https://chalcedon.edu/blog/the-certainty-of-gods-will

“Without a belief in the certainty of God’s will being done on earth as it is in heaven, we could become very discouraged,” Mark writes. That’s putting it mildly. Even the martyred saints in paradise find it hard to wait for that. If you don’t have a Bible handy, here’s the verses:

…I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held: And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth? (Revelation 6:9-10)

We have to be faithful, we have to be patient.

God will do everything that He has said He will do, in His own time.

We have His promise. And we have His Son.
