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.

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.

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…

The Lord is One

From Marcia Settles’ blog, “A Mom Looking Up”

Language is a gift of God. Use it wisely.

A Mom Looking Up

While praying on Monday night I was reflecting on this verse and mulling over how 3 distinct persons can be One God. When trying to explain it to my son, I always used the egg analogy, but that is an imperfect analogy.

To make a long story short, this is how the Lord explained it to me:

We know Jesus is the Word who became flesh and that in Him and through Him were all things created. ( John 1:14; Colossians 1:16-17)

In the beginning, God spoke.

Father spoke, Jesus is that Word, and Holy Spirit is the breath which carried the Word.

Man often speaks out of turn and inappropriately. We say things we don’t mean, things we shouldn’t, things which are not true and things we later retract.

God is not like that. When He speaks, it is deliberate and always True.

The entirety of Your word is…

“Putting a Chip in Your Brain Will Not Make You a Superhero (or a god)”

Why do ideas as bad as this sound so smart to some people?

From Marcia Settles’ blog, “A Mom Looking Up” (Finally found the “Reblog” button!)

A Mom Looking Up

It is very likely I’ve shared this before, but it deserves to be posted every so often.

If you have been paying attention, you have undoubtedly arrived at the conclusion that not only will the mark of the beast involve technology, but it will fundamentally change its bearer at the genetic level. DNA will be manipulated.

Here’s how I see it unfolding: at some point in the not-too-distant future, alien disclosure will occur. Very likely this will be after the bride of Christ and the Restrainer are removed. The world will be in shock and turmoil from countless people suddenly missing. When the natural disasters hit at never-before-seen levels, the anti-christ will emerge promising a solution to all the problems and ushering in the NWO the globalists have been yapping about for decades. He may or may not claim an ET origin. The “aliens” will either be heralded as saviors…

Guest Post: Loving God with all your Mind

Don’t miss reading this wonderful guest post by Nick Meader on our friend SlimJim’s Domain for Truth blog… “Rationalism” is totally irrational!     –LD

The Domain for Truth

Note: This is a guest post since presently I am overseas.  This is by Nick Meader.  Nick is no stranger to some of you who read this blog.  His blog be found here.

As the university year commences, around 14.5 million students in the US will either begin or return to their studies. How can we support students and academics to serve Christ in an often secular environment?

Serving in campus ministries, like UCCF or Intervarsity, offers great opportunities for fellowship, to engage in evangelism and Christian leadership.

But, we also need to be careful not to separate our lives into ‘spiritual’ and ‘secular’ compartments. As Abraham Kuyper reminded us, the sovereignty of Christ has implications for every aspect of our life:

“There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”

He Leads: For Reasons Unclear

From the lovedinspiteofself blog… We are not alone.    –LD

Loved In Spite of Self

WHEN THE REASONS ARE UNCLEAR, THE LORD REMAINS CLEAR.

Psalm 86:11 gives us a good prayer for times the path is uncertain and reasons are far from us:

Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name. 

When the road is unclear it’s not our job to drag around a bigger light…
It’s not about us being able to see what is up ahead. Life and the roads we go on are about Him walking beside us. As much as I would like to plan out my life there are to many unknowns. What we do know is Jesus and more importantly He knows us.

He is teaching us His ways along the roads of our lives.

He is leading us in His truth.

He had united our hearts to his.

Blessed By His Goodness and Mercy

From Dawn’s “Drawing Closer to Christ” blog. We are not alone.   –LD

Drawing Closer to Christ

Psalm 23:6 NIV, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”

Aren’t you glad that the goodness and mercy of the Lord are following you? If He wasn’t good, and if He wasn’t merciful, no telling where we’d be. It never ceases to amaze me, that God has a new portion of goodness and mercy available to us everyday.

When I think of the flaws I have and the many sins I’ve committed, I’m in awe that He would show me goodness and mercy anyway. His compassion outweighs any failures we have had. He chooses to be good to us and do what is best for us in every circumstance. God’s mercy causes Him to look beyond the surface, and into the depths of our hearts so He can meet our true needs. His…
