What Sanctifies Our Offerings? — VCY America

And the priest shall put some of the blood upon the horns of the altar of sweet incense before the Lord. (Leviticus 4:7)

The altar of incense is the place where saints present their prayers and praises; and it is delightful to think of it as sprinkled with the blood of the great sacrifice. This it is which makes all our worship acceptable with Jehovah: He sees the blood of His own Son and therefore accepts our homage.

It is well for us to fix our eyes upon the blood of the one offering for sin. Sin mingles even with our holy things, and our best repentance, faith, prayer, and thanksgiving could not be received of God were it not for the merit of the atoning sacrifice. Many sneer at “the blood”; but to us it is the foundation of comfort and hope. That which is on the horns of the altar is meant to be prominently before our eyes when we draw near to God. The blood gives strength to prayer, and hence it is on the altar’s horns. It is “before the Lord,” and therefore it ought to be before us. It is on the altar before we bring the incense; it is there to sanctify our offerings and gifts.

Come, let us pray with confidence, since the Victim is offered, the merit has been pleaded, the blood is within the veil, and the prayers of believers must be sweet unto the Lord.

September 26 Evening Verse of The Day

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is img_0860.jpg

16:14. Fifth, Paul wanted the Corinthians to remember the importance of a theme that he had emphasized many times in this epistle: love. He wanted them always to show love in everything. This reminder was very important for a church riddled with strife. Paul had exalted love as the highest ideal in this epistle. He reiterated this ideal so the Corinthians would not forget it. Love for God and neighbor was to motivate and govern everything they did.[1]

16:14 “Let all that you do be done in love” Notice “all” is fronted for emphasis. In a religious and cultural situation as dynamic, diverse, and problematic as Corinth, love is crucial. This is another PRESENT MIDDLE (deponent) IMPERATIVE. Orthodoxy and orthopraxy without love is not God’s will or way (cf. 14:1)! It is hard to realize that the means (for Christians) is as crucial as the ends.[2]

Ver. 14. Let all your things be done with charity.

Love more effective than logic:—As means towards the attainment of the best ends there is no comparison between these. The latter may convince the understanding and leave the heart unchanged, but the former will win the heart, and with that gained, the understanding will usually soon succumb. The difference between them is similar to that between a mallet and the sun in reducing ice to water. The mallet may break the ice into small particles, but each particle will remain ice still, while the sun’s heat falling upon the ice will melt it into a fluid, and so impregnate the fluid with its warmth that while that warmth is continued the water cannot assume again its icy condition. So in changing opinions and reforming habits. Arguments will be of little avail without a loving disposition behind them. The opinions, after all cold pure arguments, will remain generally unchanged, or probably assume another false complexion, and the habits, if broken up for a little, will soon resume their wonted round. But if love prevails, the eyes looking it, the face beaming it, the words expressing it, the whole demeanour demonstrating it, the citadel of opinion will melt before the loving assault, and the heart will become ablaze with the sacred glow. Love and logic should at least go hand in hand in seeking the regeneration of the world.

Love as a motive:—Ask yourselves what is the leading motive which actuates you while you are at work. I do not ask what your leading motive is for working, that is a different thing; you may have families to support, parents to help, brides to win; you may have all these, or other such sacred and pre-eminent motives to press the morning’s labour and prompt the twilight thought. But when you are fairly at the work, what is the motive which tells upon every touch of it? If it is the love of that which your work represents—if, being a landscape painter, it is love of hills and trees that move you—if, being a figure painter, it is love of human beauty and human soul that moves you—if, being a flower or an animal painter, it is love, and wonder, and delight in petal and in limb that move you, then the spirit is upon you, and the earth is yours, and the fulness thereof. But if, on the other hand, it is petty self-complacency in your own skill, trust in precepts and laws, hope for academical or popular approbation, or avarice of wealth, it is quite possible that by sturdy industry, or even by fortunate chance, you may win the applause, the position, the fortune that you desire, but one touch of true art you will never lay on canvas or on stone as long as you live. (J. Ruskin.)

A universal rule:

I. The spirit of it is love.

II. The applications of it is universal.

III. The motive of it. 1. To promote peace and love. 2. Prevent strife and contention. 3. Subdue enmity and opposition. (J. Lyth, D.D.)

The universal rule:

I. To what applied. To all our—1. Thoughts. 2. Feelings. 3. Actions. 4. Devotions. 5. Church activities.

II. For whom contemplated. All our—1. Family. 2. Relations. 3. Friends. 4. Neighbours. 5. Countrymen. 6. Race.

III. With what result. The promotion of all. 1. Righteousness. 2. Culture. 3. Holiness. 4. Happiness. (J. W. Burn.)

The key which sets the world to music:—Man’s life consists of many “things done.” Activity is at once the law and the necessity of his nature. He only really lives as he acts, inactivity is death. But whilst the acts of men are numerous and varied, the animating and controlling spirit should be one, viz., love. It is thus in heaven, through all hierarchies. It should be thus on earth, and must be if earth is to have a millennium. This one spirit will—

I. Make us happy in all our activities. The labour of love is the music of life. All labour, however menial, if wrought under the inspiration of love, must yield happiness.

II. Make us useful in all our activities. Every work performed by love is beneficent, it has a brightness in it to enlighten, a balm in it to soothe, a music in it to charm, an aroma in it to please.

III. Give unity to all our activities. As the circulating sap binds the root, the trunk, and the branches, the leafage, blossoms, and fruit, into one organic unity, so love will give a harmony and completeness to all the numerous and varied acts of life. Why are men everywhere so unhappy in their labours, and their labours so socially pernicious, so disharmonious and divided? Because they are not animated and governed by this one spirit—love. The human labours of the world that spring from greed, ambition, vanity, blind impulse, envy, and resentment, keep individuals, communities, and nations in constant conflict and confusion. (D. Thomas, D.D.)[3]

14. It is significant that Do everything in love follows the exhortations to manliness and strength. In manliness Paul is not looking for aggressiveness or self-assertion, but the strength that shows itself in love. As in ch. 13, he is concerned with the all-pervading nature of Christian love. Nothing we do is outside its scope. We should not overlook the significance of in. Love is more than an accompaniment of Christian actions. It is the very atmosphere in which the Christian lives and moves and has his being.[4]

14. Let all your things be done in love. Again he repeats what is the rule in all those transactions, in which we have dealings with one another. He wishes, then, that love shall be the directress; because the Corinthians erred chiefly in this respect—that every one looked to himself without caring for others.[5]

Ver. 14.—Let all your things be done with charity; rather, as in the Revised Version, Let all that ye do be done in love. This is equivalent to the “Above all things, have fervent love among yourselves,” of 1 Pet. 4:8.[6]

14 The preceding imperatives have basically to do with their remaining faithful to the gospel itself, this final one with their relationships to one another. “Do all things in love” echoes the marvelous “interlude” (chap. 13) in the preceding argument (chaps. 12/14). Apart from that passage this word does not occur frequently in this letter, but its appearance there and in the crucial passage at the beginning of the issue of idolatry (8:1–3), as well as at the heart of all of Paul’s ethical instructions, makes it certain that in Paul’s understanding this is the imperative that covers much that has preceded. “All things” would include the quarrels in the name of leaders (chaps. 1–3), their attitude toward him (chaps. 4 and 9), the lawsuits (6:1–11), husband-wife relationships (chap. 7), the abuse of the weak by those with “knowledge” (8:1–10:22), the abuse of the “have-nots” at the Lord’s Supper (11:17–34), and the failure to edify the church in worship (chaps. 12–14). If they were to “do all things in love,” then these other things would not be happening. It is therefore no surprise that this is the final expression of parenesis in the letter.[7]

Perfectly Weak — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

Consider this: the Lord took a self-assured world leader and reduced his opinion of himself until he possessed no confidence. And it was in this state of mind that God decided to use him. Moses was now qualified to lead


 “But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;  and the]base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,  that no flesh should glory in His presence.” 1 Corinthians 1:27-29

According to the Scriptures, Moses was “educated in all the learning of the Egyptians.” Indeed, as a prince in Egypt, Moses had grown to be a “man of power in words and deeds” (Acts 7:22). Thus, it is hard to equate this eloquent and cultured man with the stammering shepherd who, at eighty years old, was overwhelmed with his inadequacies, so much so that he pleaded with God to choose someone else.

Consider: the Lord took a self-assured world leader and reduced his opinion of himself until he possessed no confidence. And it was in this state of mind that God decided to use him. Having been thoroughly convinced of his unfitness for leadership, Moses was now qualified to lead.

Remarkably, the Lord would ultimately reveal Himself to Moses (and all Israel as well) as Jehovah-Rapha: “I am the Lord that healeth thee.” Yes, God is our healer, yet there are times when God’s hands wound before they heal. Indeed, He must cripple our self-confidence before we truly become God-confident. He breaks and drains us of pride so that we who were once full of self might instead be filled with God.

The Lord called Moses to return to Egypt as His spokesman. In response Moses pleaded, “Please, Lord, I have never been eloquent, neither recently nor in time past, nor since You have spoken to Your servant; for I am slow of speech and slow of tongue” (Exodus 4:10).

Never been eloquent? What about Egypt? “Moses the Eloquent” has become “Moses the Stammerer.” The identity of a sophisticated leader, a prince who knew the highest tiers of Egyptian culture, no longer functions in Moses. God has so humbled His servant that he cannot even remember his days of powerful words and mighty deeds. Moses has only one memory of Egypt: failure.

For Moses, the very mention of the word Egypt floods his mind with weakness; Moses fears returning to the place of his humiliation, especially as a leader. Yet God has not called him to be a leader, but a servant. And to be a servant, one need not be eloquent, but obedient.

The fact is, the Lord deliberately seeks those who know their flaws. Paul testifies that “God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong . . . the things that are not, so that He might nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God” (1 Corinthians. 1:27-29).

Therefore, let us not excuse ourselves from God’s calling because of our weaknesses.

You see, before the Almighty, we each are nothing, and we can do nothing of lasting value apart from Him. It is in our lowliness that God’s glory rises to its greatest heights.

Perhaps your last place of service to the Lord seemed to be a complete failure. Yet it is possible that the Lord has simply been making you perfectly weak so that He might manifest Himself perfectly strong within you.

Overcoming Failure — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

” …sometimes we can find ourselves falling repeatedly into the same sin”  Many believers become angry with God for withholding victory, but sin is always our choice, not the Lord’s.


Please open your Bible and read: Romans 7:15 – 20.

Victory is God’s will for the believer’s life. But sometimes we can find ourselves falling repeatedly into the same sin. As a result, our prayer life is marked by broken promises to end wrongdoing. We tell the Lord that we yearn to do what is right, but often our desire wanes when virtue is no longer convenient, pleasurable, or profitable. Many believers become angry with God for withholding victory, but sin is always our choice, not the Lord’s.

If a stinging conscience and misery are the result of our decision to sin, why do we continue in wrongdoing? One reason is incomplete repentance. It is possible for us to experience grief, embarrassment, and shame over sin without being truly repentant. The reason is that penitence isn’t a matter of weeping or feeling guilty; rather, true repentance is a change of mind about sin so that we agree with God’s viewpoint. Then the heart turns in a new direction, opposite from persistent wrongdoing.

The second reason for failure is an inadequate view of our true identity in the Lord. The believer, as a complete child of God, has Christ living within to empower him. When we grasp this truth, we will recognize that sin does not fit who we are and will stop rationalizing our offenses. Our genuine repentance is based upon an honest understanding of our identity.

When we put these two truths together, a powerful tool against Satan and temptation is created. Our Father wants us to be victorious, and we triumph over failure when we remember that Jesus Christ is our life.

John MacArthur attacks Branch Covidian Cult | Evangelical Dark Web

John MacArthur Mic Drop

John MacArthur is one of the most famous names in Evangelicalism today, in large part because of how distinct he has been from many other Big Eva leaders. One of the most recent contributions to this reputation is that fact that he was the most high profile instance of a church defying both lockdown orders and mask mandates in 2020. Since then he has endured a lengthy legal battle of which he recently emerged victoriously. In the past week, Grace Community Church and John MacArthur have dropped a manifesto on how the church should live with COVID titled, “Facing COVID-19 Without Fear.”

We are convinced that governmental encroachment on basic human freedoms constitutes a more intimidating threat to individuals, a greater impediment to the work of the church, and a larger calamity for all of society than any pestilence or other natural disaster. These are difficult times, calling for a thoughtful, biblical, and wise response from church leaders and their congregations.

Already, GCC is off to the right start, asserting that personal liberty, lack thereof, is a more pressing concern to the long term health of society.

Intense disagreements have swirled among evangelicals since March 2020 regarding how the church should respond to government-mandated COVID restrictions. The clash of opinions only compounds the bewilderment of Christians already confused by conflicting media reports. It has generated a firestorm of contention on social media. And it has caused unexpected division in churches. Oddly, some of the same evangelical leaders who insisted the church must shut down on orders from the state also published essays affirming the duty and priority of congregational worship. No wonder churchgoers are confused.

John MacArthur criticizes much of Big Eva for their duplicitous stance on church gathering.

In today’s troubled world, perpetual fear has been made to seem normal, even noble. Life itself has become all about avoiding risk. But to cultivate that kind of fear, especially at the government’s behest, poses a grave danger to the long-term spiritual health and ministry of the church. If young people are taught that the preservation of their own lives is more important than corporate worship and evangelism, who will go to the mission field?

Christianity does not flourish, and our collective testimony loses all credibility, when the church cowers in fear. Christians should enjoy liberty from the fear of death, hope in the midst of tribulation, and joy and gladness in all circumstances.

The dark cloud of melancholy and anxiety that COVID has brought over the world signifies an extraordinary opportunity for the church—but only if congregations can resist adopting the frame of mind that currently dominates our culture.

This raised the question about the longevity of the church and its commitment to missions. A poor response to missions that the church has collectively had has thus placed an slothful and online emphasis on local evangelism.

Masking has nevertheless become the most visible and universal symbol of the COVID era. It is also the primary instrument for virtue signaling among those most fearful of the COVID virus. In some circles, masks serve as a kind of secular substitute for religious vestments. They have become the chief symbol of popular culture’s sanctimonious devotion to a secularist credo.

Here we get the closest to John MacArthur calling Branch Covidianism a false competing religion, but he stops a short crediting secularism. MacArthur concludes:

Faithful churches must assemble even if they have to go underground to do it. That’s how churches in the first three centuries survived and flourished despite intense opposition from Caesar. It’s how the church in Eastern Europe overcame communist persecution in the twentieth century. It’s how many churches in China and elsewhere meet even today.

When COVID has run its course (if it ever does) other crises are already lined up for government officials to exploit, claiming “emergency powers” to assert more and more regulatory authority over the church. Fears over climate change, the campaign to normalize sexual perversions, imaginative applications of “social justice,” and a host of other major ideological shifts have speedily and dramatically changed the climate of virtually every Western democracy already. Some of the people who now wield power for making public policy believe the gospel and its truths are a form of “hate speech.” Churches in this part of the world have already lost much of our civic freedom.

MacArthur realizes that this playbook will be run again on a different issue, most obviously climate change. Therefore the church must be prepared to operate underground and in increasingly hostile environments. This has been highly apparent since March 2020, however, most church leaders did not act and have not since acted accordingly.

Trouble and Distress – By Daymond Duck

One of the names of the Tribulation Period is a day of trouble and distress (Zephaniah 1:15). Covid-19, mandatory vaccinations, threats to fire the unvaccinated, etc., are causing trouble and distress for millions of U.S. citizens.

All the signs of the last days are converging at the same time. Bible Prophecy is happening right before our eyes and like birth pains, the predicted events are happening more frequently and more intently. Never, in the history throughout the world have so many forces, including economic, scientific, techno-logic, ecologic, cultural, geopolitical, moral, spiritual and religion, converged together to bring this world that’s already teetering over the edge into the abyss, to a point of no return. Jesus said when you see all these signs happening, know that I am near, even at the door.

Tennis Star Says His Season is Over after Taking COVID Vaccine a Few Weeks Ago — The Gateway Pundit

Tennis star and former world number 25, Jeremy Chardy, says his season is over after devastating reactions to the COVID vaccine that he took weeks ago.

Per RT America:A tennis star has admitted he does not know when he will return to the sport and fears he may have to bring forward his retirement because of health problems he says he has suffered since taking the Pfizer Covid vaccine.

World number 73 Jeremy Chardy has become the latest tennis star to speak out against vaccines after experiencing what he describes as violent, near-paralyzing pains across his body since taking the jab, warning that there is “no hindsight” once people have received the treatment.

The 34-year-old says he his priority is to “take care of myself” after seing two doctors and taking tests in a bid to deduce why he has found physical exertion so difficult since being vaccinated.

“Suddenly I cannot train, I cannot play,” the 2017 Davis Cup winner told AFP, explaining that he received the jab between this summer’s Olympics, when he was beaten by gold medalist Alex Zverev in the quarterfinals, and the US Open, when he lost in straight sets in the first round to Matteo Berrettini at the end of August.

WUHAN LAB REQUESTED FUNDING FROM DARPA TO MAKE CHIMERIC VIRUSES, GENETICALLY ALTER CORONAVIRUSES TO MAKE THEM MORE INFECTIOUS TO HUMANS – NEWSWARS

 • https://jellyfish.news, By NewsWire

The London Telegraph reports the findings revealed by Drastic, a web-based investigations team set up by scientists from across the world to look into the origins of Covid-19.

The documents they obtained, confirmed as genuine by former US government officials, show that DARPA turned down the request, saying the plans for yet more gain of function research were TOO DANGEROUS to the human population.

The Telegraph notes that the documents reveal the Wuhan scientists “submitted plans to release skin-penetrating nanoparticles containing ‘novel chimeric spike proteins’ of bat coronaviruses into cave bats in Yunnan, China.”

The documents also show that the plan involved genetically altering the bat coronaviruses to add “human-specific cleavage sites,” essentially making it easier for the virus to get into human cells.

This is EXACTLY what was discovered when Covid-19 was first genetically sequenced, prompting many scientists to suggest the virus had been genetically manipulated in a lab.

The documents reveal that the same cast of characters already under scrutiny regarding gain of function research in Wuhan submitted the plan to DARPA. Both British zoologist Peter Daszak of EcoHealth Alliance, who later attempted to shut down scientific debate on the possibility of a lab leak, and the “bat woman” Dr Shi Zhengli were intimately involved.

Is Covid-Vax Mandate for US Military Being Used to Purge Christians and Traditional Republicans?

Fox News host Tucker Carlson makes the case that the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate is being used to rid the military of anyone, including Christians and traditional Republicans, who might oppose military takeover of the government. He said, “The point of mandatory vaccination is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the freethinkers, the men with high testosterone levels and anyone else who does not love Joe Biden – and make them leave immediately.” According to bizarre powerpoint slides prepared by the Army to encourage US troops to take vaccines, it claims that there have only been a mere three deaths caused by Covid vaccines, which is a gross under-counting of vaccine deaths that number in the thousands. The Army’s presentation also promoted satanism. The Army reported that the slides were not authorized but did not withdraw them. GEG

Bitchute link:   https://www.bitchute.com/video/m6z3ahoNN0OT/ Fox News host Tucker Carlson has claimed that the Pentagon’s vaccine mandate is actually a ruse to rid the military of anyone who doesn’t meet the government’s new standards, including Christians and Republicans.

On Monday evening, conservative Carlson took aim at the Pentagon’s recently introduced vaccine mandate for all active-duty service members. He suggested that Joe Biden’s government had a dark reason for pushing the Covid-19 shots on US troops – and it wasn’t just about inoculation from the virus.

The point of mandatory vaccination is to identify the sincere Christians in the ranks, the freethinkers, the men with high testosterone levels and anyone else who does not love Joe Biden – and make them leave immediately.

Carlson claimed that the move amounted to a “takeover of the US military.”

He also displayed fact sheets presented to troops on vaccination, which he said included lies and a “sympathetic portrayal of Satanism.” One image from a slideshow apparently used by the US Army asks “how many children were sacrificed to Satan for the vaccine?” – a seemingly ironic reference to conspiracy theories about the vaccine’s creation.Read full article here…

The abortion industry refuses to follow the science

Why is the abortion industry so desperate to ignore the science, denying that unborn babies feel pain and that abortion can harm a woman’s mental health? Presumably to salve their conscience about dismembering fellow human beings.

Jabs and Health Passports: Symbols of Modern-Day Tyranny

The Stephen Lendman Blog

The way things were in the US/West long ago no longer exists.

State-sponsored 9/11 was a game-changer, the mother of all false flags until way-surpassed by deceptively giving garden variety flu a scary new name.

What followed was unjustifiably justified by an invented SARS-CoV-2 virus that was never isolated in lab analysis and doesn’t exist.

The same goes for long ago Boston. The way it was when I grew up also no longer exists.

It was a time when inner city school teachers taught, students learned, and classroom decorum was conducive to learning.

The way things were let ordinary kids like himself, with nothing special going for them, advance to higher education and benefits it brought at the time — that no longer exist for most youths in the US today, nor in the West overall.

Back then, higher education was affordable for virtually anyone, the will to successfully complete…

Rep. Devin Nunes: “We’ve Made 14 Criminal Referrals – We Expect Durham to Do His Job” (VIDEO) — The Gateway Pundit

Rep. Devin Nunez (R-CA) joined Maria Bartiromo this morning on Sunday Morning Futures to discuss the John Durham investigation.

Rep. Nunes told Maria Bartiromo what he expects next from John Durham, “We’ve made 14 criminal referrals to the Department of Justice. I expect every one of those to be looked into. For God sake, the American people, the taxpayers pay for us to do this work.  We don’t have guns here in Congress, we can’t go out and arrest people.  All we can do is do an exhaustive investigation which we’ve done despite being stonewalled by the Department of Justice. We’ve done our job, now we expect Durham to do his job, which I think he is doing…”
