Puritan Corner - Christ & Crust

Doth God give us a Christ, and will he deny us a crust? If God doth not give us what we crave, He will give us what we need.
by Thomas Watson (1620-1686)

But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore:

The judicial system was perfected by the founding of a court of appeal at Jerusalem, where Jehoshaphat set of the Levites, and of the priests, and of the chief of the fathers of Israel, for the judgment of the Lord, and for controversies. 2 Chronicles 19:8.
In his careful safeguarding of the rights and liberties of his subjects, Jehoshaphat emphasized the consideration that every member of the human family receives from the God of justice, who rules over all.
....Early in the morning they rose and went into the wilderness of Tekoa. As they advanced to the battle, Jehoshaphat said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established: believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper....And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the Lord, and that should praise the beauty of holiness. 2 Chronicles 20:14-21. These singers went before the army, lifting their voices in praise to God for the promise of victory.
It was a singular way of going to battle against the enemy's army--praising the Lord with singing, and exalting the God of Israel. This was their battle song. They possessed the beauty of holiness. If more praising of God were engaged in now, hope and courage and faith would steadily increase. And would not this strengthen the hands of the valiant soldiers who today are standing in defense of truth?

IN the NEWS - Chang'e 3

Even with atheistic communist China--man cannot let go in the 21st century of their PAGAN past....
Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused.And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Romans 1:21NLT/23

"Chang'e 3 is an unmanned lunar exploration mission operated by the China National Space Administration (CNSA), incorporating a robotic lander and China's first lunar rover.
It was launched in December 2013 as part of the second phase of the Chinese Lunar Exploration Program.
The spacecraft was named after Chang'e, the goddess of the Moon in Chinese mythology, and is a follow-up to the Chang'e 1 and Chang'e 2 lunar orbiters. The rover was named Yutu (Chinese: 玉兔; literally: "Jade Rabbit") following an online poll, after the mythological rabbit that lives on the Moon as a pet of the Moon goddess.

Chang'e or Chang-o, originally known as Heng'e, is the Chinese goddess of the Moon.
In a very distant past, ten suns had risen together into the skies and scorched the earth, thus causing
hardship for the people. The archer Yi shot down nine of them, leaving just one sun, and was given the elixir of immortality as a reward. He did not consume it straight away, but hid it at home, as he did not want to gain immortality without his beloved wife Chang'e. However, while Yi went out hunting, Fengmeng broke into his house and tried to force Chang'e to give him the elixir; she refused and drank it herself. Chang'e then flew upwards towards the heavens, choosing the moon as residence. Yi discovered what had transpired and felt sad, so he displayed the Fruits and Cakes that Chang'e had liked, and gave sacrifices to her.
The recently rediscovered divination text Guizang contains the story of Chang'e as a story providing the meaning to Hexagram 54 of the I Ching, "Returning Maiden".

On Mid-Autumn Day, the full Moon night of the eighth lunar month, an open-air altar is set up facing the Moon for the worship of Chang'e. New pastries are put on the altar for her to bless. She is said to endow her worshipers with beauty." wikipedia

On the Streets of Babylon: Electroneum Visions?

Babylon is fallen, is fallen,... 
Come out of her, my people,
Revelation 14:8/18:4
 
There seem to be some FALSE PROPHETS on the Streets of Babylon who claim God has given them visions about investing in "Electroneum"

"On 19th December, the Lord ministered to me all the way through the 4th watch concerning investing in Electroneum. I received the following very specific instructions.

The financial seed we have been blessed with has been released into the Egyptian system and watched over because it is still under our watchful eyes. It will grow and increase in stature and strength until full grown. Then it will be time to flee because pharaoh will want to destroy it because of the connection to the people of God ....
There is an appointed time for the full grown financial seed to flee the pharaoh system into the wilderness.
We must ask for the finances to be released from Egypt to us in the appointed time of asking, with our loins girded and ready to leave and flee immediately afterwards.
I also saw the people preparing to leave Egypt and the Lord shouting the title of my book, which is “Give Me Back My Wife” and then He embraced them and said, “Mine” but it contained a double meaning as in mining cryptocurrency. It was spoken like a command or decree.
God is going to give warnings in dreams when it is time to flee the Electroneum market and we need to obey instantly because it is designed to undergird the beast cashless system and to plunder and destroy those who are of Christ. The wise men continually sought direction and received answers. They were wise because they did not lean on their own understanding."

Creation Moment 12/31/2017 - Their Nothing

"There are people in the world who maintain that the hypothesis of evolution has explained everything, that the universe is self-
contained and self-sufficient, that the law called Uniformity of Nature makes a controlling God unthinkable and impossible, that there has never been a creation... and that there is no purpose to anything... they are Materialists, the fighting force of a polite and hesitating scepticism.... they claim very emphatically, with gallant Prince Haeckel at their head, to know all. And their all is nothing."

Last Sabbath of 2017

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
 
And on the seventh day God ended his work
which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day
 from all his work which he had made.
And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it:
because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made. 
Genesis 2:1-3

But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God:
in it thou shalt not do any work,...For in six days the LORD
made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is,
and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the
sabbath day, and hallowed it. 
Exodus 20:10,11

And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven,
having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on
the earth, .... Saying with a loud voice, Fear God,
and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and
worship him that made heaven,
and earth, and the sea,
and the fountains of waters.

In the Spirit and Power of Elias

The time is not far distant when the test will come to every soul. The observance of the false sabbath will be urged upon us. The contest will be between the commandments of God and the commandments of men. Among earth's inhabitants, scattered in every land, there are those who have not bowed the knee to Baal.

The prevailing spirit of our time is one of infidelity and apostasy--a spirit of avowed illumination because of a knowledge of truth, but in reality of the blindest presumption. Human theories are exalted and placed where God and His law should be. Satan tempts men and women to disobey, with the promise that in disobedience they will find liberty and freedom that will make them as gods.
A faith such as actuated Paul, Peter, and John they regard as old-fashioned, mystical, and unworthy of the intelligence of modern thinkers.
A signpost was erected by God for those journeying through this world. One arm of this signpost pointed out willing obedience to the Creator as the road to felicity and life, while the other arm indicated disobedience as the path to misery and death. The way to happiness was as clearly defined as was the way to the city of refuge under the Jewish dispensation. But in an evil hour for our race, the great enemy of all good turned the signpost around, and multitudes have mistaken the way.
Verily My Sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the Lord that doth sanctify you. Ye shall keep the Sabbath therefore; for it is holy unto you: Exodus 31:13,14
During the Christian dispensation, the great enemy of man's happiness has made the Sabbath of the fourth commandment an object of special attack.
 Behold the world today in open rebellion against God. This is in truth a froward generation, filled with ingratitude, formalism, insincerity, pride, and apostasy. Men neglect the Bible and hate truth.
 Skepticism may treat the claims of God's law with jest, scoffing, and denial. The spirit of worldliness may contaminate the many and control the few, the cause of God may hold its ground only by great exertion and continual sacrifice, yet in the end the truth will triumph gloriously.

On the Streets of Babylon: Jesus Tying Shoes?

Babylon is fallen, is fallen,...  Come out of her, my people,
Revelation 14:8/18:4
 
There seem to be some on the Streets of Babylon who claim Jesus taught them how to "tie their shoes" during "nap time"....

"Seth Dahl, Children’s “Pastor” at Bethel Church preached a message on angels.

More specifically, angels watching over your finances. Preaching about the topic of angels should always be done with caution and high adherence to what Scripture says about Angelology. It should never be done by a children’s “Pastor” especially by one that claims Jesus taught him how to tie his shoes during nap time. Yes, that is the claim that is made by Seth Dahl on his personal website.
 
Seth had his first encounter with God in kindergarten when Jesus taught him to tie his shoes during nap time.
 
Dahl altogether avoids any proper biblical context within the confines of Angelology."

Out of those "Ivory Palaces"

All thy garments smell of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia,
out of the ivory palaces, whereby they have made thee glad.
Psalm 45:8

"One of the most beautiful of the Christmas hymns (though rarely sung at Christmas) is “Out of the Ivory Palaces,” telling how the King of heaven left His heavenly home and laid aside His perfumed, royal clothing to enter “a world of woe.”
That this 45th Psalm is symbolic in part is obvious, but that it refers to Christ is also obvious from its use in Hebrews 1:8: “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom,” quoting Psalm 45:6.


That the eternal King left heaven to come to Earth is not symbolic, however, but very real; nor did He have royal robes in which to be arrayed, for they “wrapped [Him] in swaddling clothes” and laid Him “in a manger” (Luke 2:12).

Then, as He later walked the dusty roads of Judea, we know little of what He wore, but we do know that on one notable occasion, He “laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. . . . and began to wash the disciples’ feet” (John 13:4-5). A strange garment, and stranger action, for the King of glory!

Yet, stranger still that men whom He had created later “took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat. . . . but cast lots for it” (John 19:23-24), leaving Him naked to die a painful death spiked to a tree. Finally, His little remnant of friends took “the body of Jesus, and wound it in linen clothes” (John 19:40) for His burial.

Now, however, in glory, He once again is arrayed in kingly apparel, “clothed with a garment down to the foot, and . . . with a golden girdle” (Revelation 1:13)." HMM

Creation Moment 12/30/2017 - Blind Cave Fish

"A recent paper out of Brant Weinstein’s and William Jeffery’s laboratories on eye development, or the lack thereof, in blind cave fish has important implications for evolutionary theory.
The study finds that the loss of eyes in fish living in dark Mexican caves is not due to genetic mutations, as evolutionists have
vigorously argued for many years, but due to genetic regulation. Specifically, methylation of key development genes represses their expression and with it eye development in this venerable icon of evolution. But the finding is causing yet more problems for evolutionary theory.

Darwin appealed to the blind cave fish in his one long argument for evolution. It is a curious argument in many ways, and the first sign of problems was in Darwin’s presentation where he flipped between two different explanations. At one point he explained the loss of vision in the cave fish as an example of evolutionary change not due to his key mechanism, natural selection. Instead, the Sage of Kent resorted to using the Lamarckian mechanism or law of “use and disuse.” Privately, Darwin despised and harshly criticized Lamarck, but when needed he occasionally employed his French forerunner’s ideas.
Elsewhere Darwin hit upon a natural selection-based mechanism for the blind cave fish, explaining that elimination of the costly and unneeded vision system would surely raise the fitness of the hapless creatures.

This latter explanation would become a staple amongst latter-day evolutionary apologists, convinced that it mandates the fact of evolution. Anyone who has discussed or debated evolutionary theory with today’s Epicureans has likely encountered this curious argument that because blind cave fish lost their eyes, therefore the world must have arisen by itself.
Huh?

To understand the evolutionary logic, or lack thereof, one must understand the history of ideas, and in particular the idea of fixity, or immutability, of species. According to evolutionists, species are either
absolutely fixed in their designs, or otherwise there are no limits to their evolutionary changes and the biological world, and everything else for that matter, spontaneously originated.
Any evidence, for any kind of change, no matter how minor, is immediately yet another proof text for evolution, with all that the word implies.

Of course, from a scientific perspective, the evidence provides precisely zero evidence for evolution. Evolution requires the spontaneous (i.e., by natural processes without external input) creation of an unending parade of profound designs. The cave fish evidence shows the removal, not creation, of such a design."

PROPHETS & KINGS: Audio & Pull Quotes- Chapter 13

What Doest Thou Here

Audio:
https://www.youtube.com/embed/35C33My5hWk?list=PL4ByrircmXL4AIWLkRrpeoEq_A6VmA54y

God met His tried servant with the inquiry, What doest thou here, Elijah? 1 Kings 19:19
Elijah had thought that he alone in Israel was a worshiper of the true God. But He who reads the hearts of all revealed to the prophet that there were many others who, through the long years of
apostasy, had remained true to Him. I have left Me, God said, seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
1 Kings 19:18 
The apostasy prevailing today is similar to that which in the prophet's day overspread Israel. In the exaltation of the human above the divine, in the praise of popular leaders, in the worship of mammon, and in the placing of the teachings of science above the truths of revelation, multitudes today are following after Baal. Doubt and unbelief are exercising their baleful influence over mind and heart, and many are substituting for the oracles of God the theories of men. It is publicly taught that we have reached a time when human reason should be exalted above the teachings of the Word. The law of God, the divine standard of righteousness, is declared to be of no effect.
--Yet this apostasy, widespread as it has come to be, is not universal. Not all in the world are lawless and sinful; not all have taken sides with the enemy.
--God has many thousands who have not bowed the knee to Baal, many who long to understand more fully in regard to Christ and the law,
--many who are hoping against hope that Jesus will come soon to end the reign of sin and death.
--And there are many who have been worshiping Baal ignorantly, but with whom the Spirit of God is still striving.

Muslims & the Grave of Jesus

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached
 in all the world for a witness unto all nations;
Matthew 24:14

"The denial by Mohammedanism of Jesus Christ is a most important factor to con­sider.

Every Mohammedan knows that denial. It is twofold:
(1) the denial of His deity, and
(2) the denial of the atonement.

These two great denials are the great foci of the ellipse that the Mohammedan knows about first
of all. He is taught from the beginning that Jesus is not the Son of God. He quotes inces­santly from the one hundred twelfth chapter of the Koran, which reads like this: "God is God the One, God unique. He gives not birth; nor is He born. Neither is there any one like Him." Little children will repeat that when you offer them a gospel book, when you ask them to come to a Christian school, when you show them a picture of Jesus. They will say, "No, God is one. He does not beget ; He is not begotten. All those pictures are stories. They are idolatry."

Yes, Mohammedans by their unitarianism deny the deity of our Lord, just as unitarians and many Modernists do today. They believe Jesus had a glorious name and did a great work, that He was a great prophet, but differed in nothing from the sons of men. They believe He was the son of Mary, and that He performed miracles, but they do not believe that He was the Son of God.

The second great denial is still more impor­tant. It occurs in the chapter of the Koran entitled, "Mary." So in the very chapter which bears the name of the mother of Jesus, we find this denial of the atonement. The Jews did not crucify Jesus, the Koran states. God sub­stituted someone for Him, and took Him up to heaven.
Go to their commentaries, and this is the story they tell: The Jews hated Jesus and persecuted Him. One day they drove Him into the mosque, and as Christ was praying to God to be delivered, God heard His prayer. One of the disciples looked just like Jesus, and the mob laid hold of him and cru­cified him. It was either Peter or Judas Iscariot. God took Jesus right up to heaven and delivered Him. Whoever died on the cross was simply a substitute for Jesus that God wanted on the cross in order to save Jesus.


It was impossible, they say, to allow Jesus, who was so good, and such a great prophet, to suffer. God delivered Him just as He de­livered the Hebrew children out of the fiery furnace, and Daniel from the lions' den. So the whole record of the New Testament is stultified, labeled as unhistoric, and thrown out because of one verse in the Koran which says Jesus was not crucified, that He did not die. The result is that you have a picture of Jesus as one who is only human and in some re­spects puerilely so, who did not die and did not come as a savior, but came simply as a teacher.

You can preach the commandments to Mo­hammedans, and they will gladly listen....you can tell the story and the parables of Jesus, you can even preach doctrine, and they will listen. But the thing they need most is sermons on the character of Jesus and on the atonement.

And you can appeal to them because of one thing they believe in regard to the return of Jesus, even though their belief in this respect is very strange. They say Jesus is not going to stay in heaven. He was taken to heaven, but He is coming again. If you read any book about Mecca and Medina, you will find that Mohammed, who was born
in Mecca, is buried in Medina under the great dome with five minarets. Here are the graves of Mo­hammed and abu-Bekr, the first Caliph of Mecca; next to them the grave of Omar, then the grave of Fatima, Mohammed's daughter. Then there is a blank space, and this is the place where Jesus is going to be buried when He comes. And on all the maps and guide­books of the city you will see this space called, "The Grave of Jesus." So they have a tra­dition, based upon what Mohammed told them, that when Jesus comes again, He will come from heaven as a great Moslem prince, fight for Mohammed, win battles for him, marry and have children, finally die in Medina, and be buried in this grave next to Mohammed.

So now you have the ridiculous answer of a Mohammedan to the question, "What think ye of Christ?" He is human in origin, human in destiny, and is going to be buried as a war­rior for Mohammed. How anybody can say that Mohammedans do not need the gospel, I do not see."

On the Streets of Babylon: Tarot Cards?

Babylon is fallen, is fallen,... 
Come out of her, my people,
Revelation 14:8/18:4
 
There seems to be this use of "tarot cards" on the Streets of Babylon...
 
"Bethel Church, a controversial megachurch in Redding, California, is now under fire in Christian circles for allegedly promoting New Age occultism in the use of "Destiny Cards," which critics have likened to tarot cards.

Leaders of the 9,000-member congregation have been accused of working with a Melbourne, Australia-based group known as Christ Alignment, a group that claims to have worked with many churches in that country to do readings.
Christ Alignment staff describe themselves as "trained spiritual consultants," and say on their website that they "draw from the same divine energy of the Christ spirit."
"We practice a form of supernatural healing that flows from the universal presence of the Christ. We draw from the same divine energy of the Christ spirit, as ancient followers did and operate only out of the third heaven realm to gain insight and revelation," they say.
Marsha West of the Christian Research Network argues that the Destiny Cards are just another name for tarot cards which Christ Alignment uses to "practice the prophetic."

"A Pennsylvania couple placed a Christmas display with a manger scene in front of their Gettysburg home a week before the holiday
that includes a white sign with the word “Jesus” spelled with red garland and adorned with lights.
Well, a complaint was filed with the homeowners association — which led to an edict less than 24 hours after the sign went up that it’s “offensive” and must be taken down, WHP-TV reported.
But Lynn and Mark Wivell said they aren’t removing their Jesus sign anytime soon.

"To speak of a “Darwinian” process of selection among culturally

It easily becomes an interpretive blank check, permitting speculation that seems to explain any describable human trait... at best they help a little in explaining why we human beings are capable of comprehending the universe — but they still say nothing about why the universe itself is comprehensible."

PROPHETS & KINGS: Audio & Pull Quotes- Chapter 12

From Jezreel to Horeb

Audio:
https://www.youtube.com/embed/IBjhXCOTpTk?list=PL4ByrircmXL4AIWLkRrpeoEq_A6VmA54y

It was because Elijah was a man of large faith that God could use him in this grave crisis in the history of Israel. Faith such as this is needed in the world today--faith that will lay hold on the promises of God's word and refuse to let go until Heaven hears. Faith is an essential element of prevailing prayer.
That night a messenger aroused the weary prophet and delivered to him the word of Jezebel: So let the gods do to me, and more also, if I make not thy life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time. 1 Kings 19:2
It would seem that after showing courage so undaunted, after triumphing so completely over king and priests and people, Elijah could never afterward have given way to despondency nor been awed into timidity. But he who had been blessed with so many evidences of God's loving care was not above the frailties of mankind, and in this dark hour his faith and courage forsook him.
Elijah should not have fled from his post of duty. He feared that the reformation begun on Carmel might not be lasting; and depression seized him.
The faithful Job, in the day of his affliction and darkness, declared:

          Let the day perish wherein I was born."
          O that my grief were throughly weighed,
And my calamity laid in the balances together!
Job 3:3/6:2
The Lord answered Job out of the whirlwind (Job 38:1), and revealed to His servant the might of His power. When Job caught a glimpse of his Creator, he abhorred himself and repented in dust and ashes. Then the Lord was able to bless him abundantly and to make his last years the best of his life.
Did God forsake Elijah in his hour of trial? Oh, no! He loved His servant no less when Elijah felt himself forsaken of God and man than when, in answer to his prayer, fire flashed from heaven and illuminated the mountaintop.
And now, as Elijah slept, a soft touch and a pleasant voice awoke him. He started up in terror, as if to flee, fearing that the enemy had discovered him. But the pitying face bending over him was not the face of an enemy, but of a friend. God had sent an angel from heaven with food for His servant. Arise and eat, the angel said. And he looked, and, behold, there was a cake baken on the coals, and a cruse of water at his head. 1 Kings 19:5,6

Old Fashioned Paganism is alive & well among 21st century airliners....

"Officials at Nepal’s state-run airline have sacrificed two goats to

The goats were sacrificed in front of the troublesome aircraft on Sunday at Nepal’s only international airport in Kathmandu in accordance with Hindu traditions, an official said.
The snag in the plane has now been fixed and the aircraft has resumed its flights,” said Raju K.C., a senior airline official,

Actually there is no confusion about Gender with God....But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. Mark 10:6

"Swarthmore College is offering a course next year that will survey “queer and trans readings of biblical texts” by using “queer and trans theoretical approaches,” with faculty staying silent on the specifics of the course material.

Queering the Bible” is set to launch next fall and will be instructed by Gwynn Kessler, an associate professor of religion, according to Swarthmore’s course catalog.
The course, which is being offered through Swarthmore’s Religion Department, promises to “[introduce] students to the complexity of constructions of sex, gender, and identity in one of the most influential literary works produced in ancient times.”

By reading the Bible with the methods of queer and trans* theoretical approaches,” the catalog advertises, “this class destabilizes long held assumptions about what the bible–and religion–says about gender and sexuality.”
It appears that the Swarthmore Religion Department will offer no other Bible-centric courses next fall apart from this one. Out of around ten listed courses that explicitly involve Bible study at Swarthmore, “Queering the Bible” appears to be the only one taking place in fall of 2018."

Creation Moment 12/28/2017 - Problem with Naturalism

"The problem with naturalism is not that it limits science to the study of nature, but with its hidden assumptions about the nature of nature."
Robert Sloan, Baylor Univ. 1999

But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise;
1 Corinthians 1:27

PROPHETS & KINGS: Audio & Pull Quotes- Chapter 11

Carmel

All through the ages, God has had moral heroes, and He has them now--those who, like Joseph and Elijah and Daniel, are not ashamed to acknowledge themselves His peculiar people. His special blessing accompanies the labors of men of action, men who will not be swerved from the straight line of duty, but who with divine energy will inquire, Who is on the Lord's side? (Exodus 32:26),...Gladly would Satan have come to the help of those whom he had deceived, and who were
devoted to his service. Gladly would he have sent the lightning to kindle their sacrifice. But Jehovah has set Satan's bounds, restrained his power, and not all the enemy's devices can convey one spark to Baal's altar.
At last, their voices hoarse with shouting, their garments stained with blood from self-inflicted wounds, the priests become desperate. With unabated frenzy they now mingle with their pleading terrible cursings of their sun-god, and Elijah continues to watch intently; for he knows that if by any device the priests should succeed in kindling their altar fire, he would instantly be torn in pieces. Evening draws on. The prophets of Baal are weary, faint, confused.
Elijah calls upon them to humble their hearts and turn to the God of their fathers, that the curse upon the land of Israel may be removed. Then, bowing reverently before the unseen God, he raises his hands toward heaven and offers a simple prayer. Baal's priests have screamed and foamed and leaped, from early morning until late in the afternoon; but as Elijah prays, no senseless shrieks resound over Carmel's height. No sooner is the prayer of Elijah ended than flames of fire, like brilliant flashes of lightning, descend from heaven upon the upreared altar, consuming the sacrifice, licking up the water in the trench, and consuming even the stones of the altar.
 The anger of the people has already been aroused against the leaders in transgression; ...They seize the priests, and take them to the brook Kishon, and there, before the close of the day that marked the beginning of decided reform, the ministers of Baal are slain. Not one is permitted to live.

1st Angel's Message & Sabbath Question

Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him;
for the hour of his judgment is come:
and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
Revelation 14:7
 
"Revelation 14 exposes the contest between truth and error in the messages given by three angels.
The first angel identifies the Creator as our judge, as the only One worthy of our worship (Revelation 14:6, 7). If God is our judge, and we are commanded to worship Him as the Creator, shouldn’t we honor Him by worshiping on the day He set apart—the seventh-day Sabbath?" SabbathTruth

Creation Moment 12/27/2017 - Why Christians Can't Believe In Evolution

 "At times I am somewhat puzzled by answers some creationists give when asked why true Christians can't be evolutionists.  ... So, I believe the first answer to the question 'Why can't Christians believe in evolution?' should be 'Because it destroys the need for Christ.'"
WarrenKrug
Let them praise the name of the LORD: for he commanded, and they were created.

PROPHETS & KINGS: Audio & Pull Quotes- Chapter 10

The Voice of Stern Rebuke

Audio:
https://www.youtube.com/embed/bFLTNkQd8y8?list=PL4ByrircmXL4AIWLkRrpeoEq_A6VmA54y

Ahab... In his first faltering words, Art thou he that troubleth Israel? (1 Kings 18:17) he unconsciously reveals the inmost feelings of his heart. Ahab knew that it was by the word of God that the heavens had become as brass, yet he sought to cast upon the prophet the blame for the heavy judgments resting on the land.
It is natural for the wrongdoer to hold the messengers of God responsible for the calamities that come as the sure result of a departure from the way of righteousness. Those who place themselves in Satan's power are unable to see things as God sees them. When the mirror of truth is held up before them, they become indignant at the thought of receiving reproof. Blinded by sin, they refuse to repent; .... Today there is need of the voice of stern rebuke; for grievous sins have separated the people from God. Infidelity is fast becoming fashionable. The smooth sermons so often preached make no lasting impression; the trumpet does not give a certain sound. Men are not cut to the heart by the plain, sharp truths of God's word.
