Exceedingly Precious — VCY America

They shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts in that day when I make up my jewels. (Malachi 3:17)

A day is coming in which the crown jewels of our great King shall be counted, that it may be seen whether they answer to the inventory which His Father gave Him. My soul, wilt thou be among the precious things of Jesus? Thou art precious to Him if He is precious to thee, and thou shalt be His “in that day,” if He is thine in this day.

In the days of Malachi, the chosen of the Lord were accustomed so to converse with each other that their God Himself listened to their talk. He liked it so well that He took notes of it; yes, and made a book of it, which He lodged in His record office. Pleased with their conversation, He was also pleased with them. Pause, my soul, and ask thyself: If Jesus were to listen to thy talk would He be pleased with it? Is it to His glory and to the edification of the brotherhood? Say, my soul, and be sure thou sayest the truth.

But what will the honor be for us poor creatures to be reckoned by the Lord to be His crown jewels! This honor have all the saints. Jesus not only says, “They are mine,” but, “They shall be mine.” He bought us, sought us, brought us in, and has so far wrought us to His image that we shall be fought for by Him with all His might.

A Thief In The Night – Listen to Love Worth Finding with Adrian Rogers, May 11, 2022

In this message from 1 Thessalonians 5, Adrian Rogers shares four expectations to edify us as we wait for the return of Jesus Christ.

The Bible and its Story: Wine the Mocker

Next comes counsel against self-indulgence of every kind, against over-eating, and even more against intemperate drinking.

‎“He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man: he that loveth wine and oil shall not be rich.”

‎“Who hath woe? who hath sorrow? who hath contentions? who hath babbling? who hath wounds without cause? who hath redness of eyes?

‎“They that tarry long at the wine: they that go to seek mixed wine.

‎“Look not thou upon the wine when it is red, when it giveth his colour in the cup, when it moveth itself aright.

‎“At the last it biteth like a serpent, and stingeth like an adder.”

‎Especially are we warned to be abstemious in places of prominence. “When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:

‎“And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.

‎“Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.”

May 14 Evening Verse of The Day

113:3 This verse forms a chiasm with v. 2, centering on God’s eternality. The travel of the sun across the sky is described in 19:4–6 as indicating God’s omniscience, and in 72:5, 17 it is associated with the longevity of the kingly reign.[1]

113:3 From the rising of the sun to its setting. That is, from east to west, everywhere.[2]

113:3 rising … setting. From the first moment of consciousness in the morning to the last waking moment before sleep.[3]

3. “From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the Lord’s name is to be praised.” From early morn till eve the ceaseless hymn should rise unto Jehovah’s throne, and from east to west over the whole round earth pure worship should be rendered unto his glory. So ought it to be; and blessed be God, we are not without faith that so it shall be. We trust that ere the world’s dread evening comes, the glorious name of the Lord will be proclaimed among all nations, and all people shall call him blessed. At the first proclamation of the gospel the name of the Lord was glorious throughout the whole earth; shall it not be much more so ere the end shall be? At any rate, this is the desire of our souls. Meanwhile, let us endeavour to sanctify every day with praise to God. At early dawn let us emulate the opening flowers and the singing birds,

“Chanting every day their lauds,

While the grove their song applauds;

Wake for shame my sluggish heart,

Wake and gladly sing thy part.”

It is a marvel of mercy that the sun should rise on the rebellious sons of men, and prepare for the undeserving fruitful seasons and days of pleasantness; let us for this prodigy of goodness praise the Lord of all. From hour to hour let us renew the strain, for each moment brings its mercy; and when the sun sinks to his rest, let us not cease our music, but lift up the vesper hymn—

“Father of heaven and earth!

I bless thee for the night,

The soft still night!

The holy pause of care and mirth,

Of sound and light.

Now far in glade and dell,

Flower-cup, and bud, and bell

Have shut around the sleeping woodlark’s nest,

The bee’s long-murmuring toils are done,

And I, the o’erwearied one,

Bless thee, O God, O Father of the oppressed!

With my last waking thought.”[4]

Ver. 3.—From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same (comp. Mal. 1:11); i.e. all over the world, from the furthest east to the furthest west. The Lord’s Name is to be praised; or, “praised be the Name of the Lord” (Kay).[5]

Rescued — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

It was as though someone just hit her. The thought that she could die from cancer was terrifying.

“The cords of death entangled me; the torrents of destruction overwhelmed me. The cords of the grave coiled around me; the snares of death confronted me. In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ear.” – ” reached down from on high and took hold of me; he drew me out of deep waters. He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me.” Psalm 18:4-6; 16&17

It was as though someone just hit her. The thought that she could die from cancer was terrifying. Laura grabbed her Bible off the hospital nightstand. She began frantically paging through it, crying out to God for help. Thankfully, the words of scripture comforted her.

Cancer and death were Laura Walker’s powerful enemies. But the author clung to God’s promise of rescue. God’s word filled her with peace. She didn’t know if rescue meant physical healing. Or maybe it meant the ultimate healing: taking her home to heaven. Either way, she was rescued. Death could never touch her cancer-free soul.

Friend, God has promised never to leave or forsake you. Through sickness or health!  Through adversity or blessing. And now fourteen years later, Laura can still testify to God’s faithfulness.

The Source of Our Adversity — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

We struggle to reconcile our suffering with God’s love for us and His power to prevent or stop it.

Read Isaiah 45:5-10

When we experience hardships, we usually wonder why God allows these painful situations to come our way.   It just doesn’t seem to fit with His role as our loving heavenly Father. We struggle to reconcile our suffering with His love for us and His power to prevent or stop it. In order to understand what’s going on, we need to consider the possible sources of adversity.

A Fallen World: When sin entered the world, suffering came with it. God could have protected us from these harmful effects by making us like puppets who could not choose sin, but that would mean we’d also be unable to choose to love Him, because love must be voluntary.

Our Own Doing: Sometimes we get ourselves into trouble with our foolish or sinful choices. If the Lord stepped in and rescued us from every negative consequence, we’d never grow into mature believers.

Satanic Attack: The Devil is our enemy. To hinder anything the Lord wants to do in and through believers, Satan will never cease to harass us. His goal is to destroy our lives and our testimonies, thereby making us weak and useless for God’s purposes.

God’s Sovereignty: Ultimately, the Lord is in charge of all adversity that comes our way. To deny His involvement contradicts His power and sovereignty over creation.

For us to accept that God allows–or even sends–afflictions, we must see adversity from His perspective. Is your focus on the pain of your experience or on the Lord and His faithfulness? As believers, we’re assured that no adversity comes our way unless He can use it to achieve His good purposes.

The Bible and its Story: “Grievous Words”

The wickedness of strife comes next before the teacher’s mind, with all the folly and discomfort of quarreling. Many are the world-known quotations from the chapters (15–18) where this thought dominates.

‎“A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”

‎“Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

‎“A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.”

‎“Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

‎“Better is a dry morsel, and quietness therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife.”

‎“The beginning of strife is as when one letteth out water: therefore leave off contention, before it be meddled with.”

‎“It is an honour for a man to cease from strife: but every fool will be meddling.

Heidelminicast: Heidelberg Catechism 85—How Is The Kingdom Of Heaven Open And Shut By Church Discipline? — The Heidelblog

The Heidelberg Catechism is one of the most beloved and well used catechisms to emerge from the sixteenth and seventeenth century Reformation. Published in its final form in 1563, the catechism has been used by millions of Christians to teach the faith to children and adults alike. Arranged in 52 Lord’s Days (Sundays) the catechism takes the Christian through the basics of the Christian faith (our creation, fall, redemption, new life in Christ, and glorification). It explains the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer. It is a treasure. To encourage listeners and readers, we expect to post one question and answer a day on the HB. If you are subscribed to the Heidelcast or the Heidelblog (see below) you will receive these episodes automatically.

“The truth is, President Biden won the nomination because he promised not to be Bernie Sanders. Who has he tried to emulate? Bernie Sanders. After 14 months, we know that President Biden believes in bigger government, higher taxes, more spending, more debt, more regulation, a weaker military, open borders, taxpayer-funded abortion-on-demand, and turning cops into social workers. His energy policy — here’s his energy policy: wind, solar, and wishful thinking. He thinks he can run the greatest economy, the most powerful economy in all of human history, without fossil fuels. And that’s one of the main reasons why the prices at the pump are so high. And the American people see this. They see that after 14 months, nothing is built, nothing is back, and nothing is better — and that’s why when you poll it, the American people say, ‘Well, the country is headed in the wrong direction.’ And the president, he has no self-awareness, or at least the people around him won’t allow him to have self-awareness about the real problem.” —Senator John Kennedy

Experts Warn Iranian Nuclear Deal May Trigger Global Nuclear Storm

JERUSALEM, Israel – After months of negotiations, the Iranian nuclear deal remains on hold apparently over one key sticking point. The US and Iran are at a deadlock over removing Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) from the Foreign Terrorist Organization (FTO) list. “The IRGC has American blood on its hands and there’s no good reason for the United States to even consider lifting this FTO designation,” said Middle East Expert Ellie Cohanim.

Where Is the $56 Billion ‘to Ukraine’ Actually Going?

 • https://www.lewrockwell.com, By Jordan Schachtel

Due to President Trump, the D.C. war machine spent 2016 to 2020 starving for a monetary replenishment. And now that they have their man in the White House, along with easy consensus in the legislature, it’s time to cash in.

Wherever your opinion resides on this proxy war/inter-slavic spat 5,000 miles away on the Russia-Ukraine border region, reality cannot be denied.

The $56 billion and counting in “aid for Ukraine” that’s passing through the American legislature primarily serves the purpose of greasing the skids of the D.C. Beltway ruling class. And you’re paying for it.

If you think the people of Ukraine are going to see one dime of this money, think again. Not even the “humanitarian aid” portions of the assistance will reach the Ukrainian people, as it will be absorbed by a variety of DC lawyers, lobbyists, NGOs, and other well connected middle men. See: Afghanistan.

If they gave the bill a more accurate title, it would be called the “Money For Raytheon And Friends” bill, as the majority of the funds from the latest $40 billion behemoth will be used to supply weapons purchase orders, and resupply weapons that were already sent to Ukraine, which arrived with a seeming back room deal to add to the deep pockets of the weapons manufacturers back home.

Those who have become consumed by corporate press and government war propaganda are being used as useful marks for this agenda.

Since the beginning of this conflict, our corporate press and government propagandists (yes, one in the same) have been labeling the war with a nonsensical good vs evil narrative, which has helped to demand consensus in D.C. Notably, not a single Democrat voted against the bill. Republicans largely support it, and the Uniparty is outraged that Rand Paul decided to hold up its “emergency” passage.
