1 Worship Before the Lord Note Ps 86:9 DocTrinsograce Thu 04/30/15, 2:27pm 242177
  "Worship is the submission of all of our nature to God. It is the quickening [making alive] of the conscience by His holiness; the nourishment of mind with His truth; the purifying of imagination by His beauty; the opening of the heart to His love; the surrender of will to His purpose -- all this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable." --Archbishop William Temple (1881-1944)

2 My God and My Lord Note Prov 22:11 DocTrinsograce Wed 04/29/15, 3:33pm 242174
  "Lord, you are my God, and you are my Lord, but I have never seen you... For I cannot seek you unless you teach me how, and I cannot find you unless you show yourself to me. Let me seek you in desiring you; let me desire you in seeking you. Let me find you in loving you; let me love you in finding you." --Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

3 Take Heed Note John 13:2 DocTrinsograce Sun 04/26/15, 11:24am 242163
  Dear Lionheart,

To answer your question, "how do we wake people up before it's too late" let me make a few points.

First, remember that none of this is taking God by surprise. On the contrary, even back in David's time, He shared with us the purposes and practices of those who are His enemy. Read again Psalm 2.

Second, nothing will impede God's eternal purpose; not men, not nations, not demons, not Satan himself. Everything is coming together in just the way He has ordained things to take place.

Third, nothing happens that escapes God's attention. He sees not just events, but the plans and hearts of all creatures.

Fourth, every molecule in the universe is under His immediate control. Therefore, every one of His promises are absolutely certain.

What this all means is that we can take the following steps in perfect confidence.

Pray. We know that God will always answer our prayers when they are according to His will (1 John 5:14). Knowing all of the above means that we can pray perfectly according to His will. That is a very powerful thing!

Repent. We must understand that the root of our problems are not outside of us, but inside of us. Therefore, we begin by being repentant in the ways our own lives fail to reflect these things. Each time we see failings in other, that is a helpful moment to search out the same or worse failing in ourselves. We must correct the issues in ourselves, our homes, our congregations, etc.

Prepare. It is lack of knowledge by which a people perish. As we pray for revival, we must recognize that if God grants it, there will be enormous work to be done. Our pastors will not be able to handle it all. Each of us will need to be teaching, preaching, and counselling others as an enormous hunger for the Word takes root. In order to do that, though, we must prepare through study and effort.

Remember. God has provisioned us with a huge resource of lectures and sermons throughout history. We have more at our fingertips than ever before. This has a specific purpose according to Ephesians 4. Leverage those things in order to serve our Lord.

Hope. Biblical hope is not just wishful thinking. It could be translated as "confident expectation." Our God has equipped us with all that we need unto godliness. Every single one of our efforts, even the most feeble, are matters of great hope. For our Lord will do what He has said. There is no "too late."

In Him, Doc
4 Take Heed Note John 13:2 lionheart Fri 04/24/15, 4:06pm 242161
  Doc, Good day my brother,
How much that applies today. We are seeing it before our very eyes. God is doing great things in spite of all this and that gives me hope,But Doc I feel That a good part of the Church has fallen asleep. Doc how do we wake people up before it's too late.

5 Thought for the Day,Think on this Note Jeremiah EdB Fri 04/24/15, 4:02pm 242160
  Lionheart
I hear you but I think in many cases our faith, because of where we live, is weak. Like the seed that fell on the rock as in Mark 4:5. Too much seed is falling on stoney ground in the America today. We have made it too easy to believe we are Christians. The faith today springs up fast but will not sustain the believer through a crisis.
Faith must be built, it requires a good foundation built on the word of God, not the promise of man, which many times never gets built. Then it also needs to be tried and tested and made to grow. Faith like David had facing Goliath only can only come from testing, facing the bear and lion. David had built upon the foundation of faith within him and could stand upon it.
Christians in other countries are often required to stand upon their faith every day. Their faith is constantly being built that is how they are able to stand the persecution.
6 From Him Alone Note John 17:7 DocTrinsograce Fri 04/24/15, 3:02pm 242158
  "We owe to the Scripture the same reverence which we owe to God, because it has proceeded from Him alone, and has nothing of man mixed with it." --John Calvin (1509-1564)

7 Thought for the Day,Think on this Note Jeremiah Nucc Fri 04/24/15, 5:40am 242157
  Daniel 3:18
18 "But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up." (NAS)


Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding Godís command,
Honor them, the faithful few!
All hail to Danielís band!

Refrain

Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.

Many mighty men are lost
Daring not to stand,
Who for God had been a host
By joining Danielís band.

Refrain

Many giants, great and tall,
Stalking through the land,
Headlong to the earth would fall,
If met by Danielís band.

Refrain

Hold the Gospel banner high!
On to victíry grand!
Satan and his hosts defy,
And shout for Danielís band.

Refrain
8 Thought for the Day,Think on this Note Jeremiah lionheart Thu 04/23/15, 3:01pm 242155
  Jer 29:11-13
Been thinking about this for some time now and I no longer can keep silent. 2 Tim 3 tells the Church will come on hard times and we're seeing that more than ever today. We are seeing unparalleled persecution of Our brothers and sisters in Africa and the Middle East. Here in America it is no longer as popular as it once was. Have we stopped believing who God says we are IJn 3:1-3. We get told that we are delusional And that our faith is weak and blind.
We know differently though don't we. Heb 11:1-3,Phil 4:13. Brothers and sisters we will not get a pass on this one. Will we let them shut us up or are going to stand up and declare God and His Word. There is no time for half measures. Are we willing to count the cost To stand for Jesus know matter the consequences . Stand or Die,. Which will it be?

In Him;
lionheart
