Reading an old post

It is good to scroll back from time and time and read your own posts. You'd be surprised to see your own words speak back to you. They could be a consolation as you go through the fiery trials.

Moreover, God was merciful in allowing me to be at my church this weekend and listen to two Navajo preachers, Wilson Calvin and Terrence Calvin preached to us (along with Stan Scot and Charles Andrews) for their preaching catered to my needs in many ways.

Here are some edited selections from a post dated January 2007 entitled Salted by fire or burned with fire. Which one are you?

Tested and tried, perfected and purified. That should be the case for every Christian. If not, then burned with fire is the judgement that awaits those who deny our Lord Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 12:29 - For our God is a consuming fire.

We will all appear before the Judgement Seat of Christ 1 Corinthians 3:13 - Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

In the meantime, our lives are salted and we are offered as a living sacrifice for the Godly fire is at work in our lives perfecting and purifying us. Mark 9:49 - For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt.

Talk out trials. My mother's summer accident has been a severe trial in my life. Trying us:1 Peter 1:7 - That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ: Purifying us:1 Peter 1:22 - Seeing ye have purified.

We know that gold is purified in fire Revelation 3:18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire.

Isn't that encouraging to read when you are going through fiery trials.
Thank you Lord Jesus for your living word. Like the rain on a dry ground, it shall always accomplish its purpose and refresh some thirsty soul.

Don't fear the Father's Reprisal by David Peacock

These sermons have been directed to people who have been born again by the Spirit of God by trusting the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as FULL payment for ALL their sins.
The doctrine concerns such people. If you are not saved from hell yet, see paragraph above.
So now, dear born-again believer, if you are out of the will of God, out of fellowship and miserable, don't be afraid to return to Him. He will gladly take you back.

When You Stop Listening To God

David Peacock has a southern accent. It might be hard to understand... but you will understand. Listen to every word.

When bad things happen to good people

Why do bad things happen to good people? This question has been asked over and over again, and I do not think the answer is easy to give. Needless to say that according to God’s word in Romans 10:12, there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Over three weeks ago, my 81 year old mother who came to visit me from California fell down the stairs at my home. We woke up at 1:30 in the morning to the sound of a thump, only to find her lying on the middle landing of the stairs half conscious in a pool of blood. She was immediately transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital where I have spent the last two and half weeks of my life. She had suffered severe head trauma with five broken ribs.

My mother is a very godly woman. It broke my heart to see her lying in such pain and agony as she suffered hemorrage in the skull, fractured ribs with complications to follow including a strange hormone that the brain started producing, followed by a sharp drop in the blood sodium level as the white cells tripled coupled with urinary tract infection. She almost contracted pneumonia which would have threatened her already weak heart condition, not to mention the bruises and hematoma all over her body. She also lost her mobility, etc.

Why did all that happen? I don't know yet. We had just returned from a revival in Ohio, and were glorifying the Lord as another one was waiting for us at our local church. My mother and I were planning to go to yet another Arabic revival later in August. Then disaster struck.

I spent the first three days in the emergency ward by her bedside not knowing if she will or will not make it. Thankfully prayers were lifted up everywhere and the Lord saw us through. She is now recovering slowly but surely.

God never answered Job about all his troubles. I hope I will get an answer some day. In the meantime, I am thankful she is alive.

Daniel's 70 weeks

Ever wondered about Daniel's 70 weeks?
Listen to Part 1 of a 6 part series on them by Dr.Estep.

You will see how a Bible-believer divides the word of truth, in subjection to the command found in 2 Timothy 2:15.
