  1. Hi SE!! Just dropping by to say hello!

  2. Where the Battle's lost and won

    This is from Oswald Chambers daily reading from My Utmost for His Highest from 12-27: If you will return, O Israel, says the Lord...Jer 4:1 The battle is lost or won in the secret places of the Will before God, never first in the external world. the Spirit of God apprehends me and I am obliged to get alone with God and fight the battle out before Him. Until this is done, I lose every time. The battle may take one minute or a year, that will depend on me, not on God; but it must be wrestled out alone before God, and I must resolutely go through the hell of a renunciation before God. Nothing has any power over the man who has fought out the battle before God and won there. If I say, 'I will wait till I get into the circumstances and then put God to the test' I shall find I cannot. I must get the thing settled between myself and God in the secret places of my soul where no stranger intermeddles, and then I can go forth with the certainty that the battle is won. Lose it there, and calamity and disaster and upset are as sure as God's decree. The reason the battle is not won is because I try to win it in the external world first. Get alone with God, fight it out before Him, settle the matter there once and for all. In dealing with other people, the line to take is to push them to an issue of Will. That is the way abandonment begins. Every now and again, not often, but sometimes, God brings us to a point of climax. That is the Great Divide in the life; from that point we either go towards a more and more dilatory and useless type of Christian life, or we become more and more ablaze for the glory of God--My Utmost for His Highest. __________________
  3. Atonement

    This is from Oswald Chambers from My Utmost for His Highest for 12-23: How can I personally partake in the Atonement? But God forbid that I should glory save in the cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ Gal 6:14 The Gospel of Jesus Christ always forces an issue of will. Do I accept God's verdict on sin in the Cross of Christ? Have I the slightest interest in the death of Jesus? Do I want to be 'identified with' His death, to be killed right out to all interest in sin, in worldliness, in self---to be 'so identified with' Jesus that I AM spoilt for everything else but Him? The great privilege of discipleship is that I can sign on under the Cross, and that means death to sin. Get alone with Jesus and either tell HIm that you do not want sin to die out in you; or else tell Him that at all costs you want to be identified with His death. Immediately you transact in confident faith in what Our Lord did on the Cross, a supernatural identification with His death takes place, and you will know with a knowledge that passes knowledge that your 'old man' is crucified with Christ. The proof that your old man is crucified with Christ is the amazing ease with which the life of God in you enables you to obey the voice of Jesus Christ. Every now and again, Our Lord lets us see what we would be like if it were not for Himself; it is a justification of what He said---'Without Me you can do nothing'. That is why the bedrock of Christianity is personal passionate devotion to the Lord Jesus. We mistake the ecstasy of our first introduction into the Kingdom for the purpose of God in getting us there; His purpose in getting us there is that we may realize all that identification with Jesus Christ means.
  4. This is Oswald Chambers message from 'My Utmost for His Highest' for Dec 13th. This is one message truly for today: Men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Lk 18:1 You cannot intercede if you do not believe in the reality of the Redemption; you will turn intercession into 'futile sympathy' with human beings which will only increase their submissive content to being out of touch with God. In intercession you bring the person, or the circumstance that impinges on you before God until you are 'moved by His attitude' towards that person or circumstance. Intercession means filling that person up 'that which is behind of the affliction of Christ' , and that is why there are so few intercessors. Intercession is put on the line of..'Put yourself in his place'. NEVER!! Try to put yourself in God's place. As a worker, be careful to keep pace with the communications of reality from God or you will be crushed. If you 'know' too much, more than God has engineered for you to know, you cannot pray, the condition of the people is so crushing that you cannot get through to reality. Our work lies in coming into definite contact with God about everything, and we 'shirk it' by becoming active workers (my comments: doing instead of being, showing soul rather than God's heart). We DO the things that can be 'tabulated' (my comments: counted by men) but we wil not intercede. Intercession is the one thing that has 'no snares', because it keeps our relationship with God completely open. The thing to watch in intercession is that 'no soul' is 'patched up'; a soul MUST get through into contact with the Life of God. Think of the number of souls God has brought about our path and we have 'dropped them'! When we pray on the ground of Redemption, God 'creates' something He can create in no other way than through intercessory prayer.
  5. Butt Dust

    Yes Lord, it's true...I am butt dust!! My name is Jacob and I am butt dust!!
  6. A friend of mine just got back from a gathering in Florida where they led prayer groups in praying for this nation. One of the things the Lord spoke to them there was to declare the covenants made by our forefathers on behalf of this nation before voting. I urge each of you to declare these covenants out loud and preferably with other people as we enter into this time. Here are the covenants for your consideration: The first official act of the Continental Congress in 1774 was a call to prayer. Therefore we call our nation and the Congress of the United States of America back to that place of humbly submitting ourselves as a government and as a nation to be a people of prayer, repenting and seeking favor and divine guidance from the Sovereign Ruler of the Universe. *We declare that the United States of America is returning to “the Sovereign to Whom all men ought to be obedient.” Samuel Adams, known as the Father of the American Revolution, made this statement as the Declaration of Independence was being signed. *In 1777 the Continental Congress ordered the importation of 20,000 Bibles for the American troops. We declare that our nation is returning to the Bible, the truth of God’s word, and that it is the plumbline that sets the foundation upon which our nation is built and upon which our decisions are made. *We declare that our nation will humble itself with thanksgiving, recognizing from Whom our blessings flow and to Whom we owe our establishment as a nation. In 1780 the Continental Congress issued another proclamation for a Day of Public Thanksgiving and Prayer. *Our Declaration of Independence was not a declaration of independence from God but rather a statement of our continuing reliance upon His divine protection. Therefore, we declare that our nation will return to our recognition of God as Creator, to the “Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God”, to the justice and righteousness mandated by Him, and to a firm reliance on the protection of “Divine Providence”. *Alexis de Tocqueville, the famous 19th century French statesman, historian, and social philosopher traveled to America to discover the reasons for its incredible success. He said there was no other country in the world where the Christian religion retained such great influence. When he sought for the key to our greatness, this is what he discovered: “Not until I went into the churches of American and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power.” Therefore, as the church we repent and cry out to God asking forgiveness for allowing this flame to die out in the pulpits of America, for allowing our influence to wane. We also declare that America will only be as great as the Church is great in the sense of conformity to His will and purposes and in being aflame with His love and passion. We call our nation back to our Christian foundation and to the greatness that He had planned for us. *We agree with the statements made by Benjamin Franklin in 1787 at the Constitutional Convention “that God governs in the affairs of men” and that “except the Lord build the House, they labor in vain that build it.” We declare that God is the basis of all government and that Jesus Christ is our Judge, Lawgiver, and King. Our founding fathers based the formation of the three branches of government upon this scripture in Isaiah 33:22. We agree with this covenantal statement that we will return to the Supreme Architect of the universe recognizing Him as the cornerstone of all we build and yielding to His plans for us as a nation. *In 1863 Abraham Lincoln made a proclamation appointing a National Fast Day, stating that the Senate of the United States devoutly recognized the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God in all the affairs of men and nations. We declare that our nation will again humble itself in fasting and prayer and that dormant seeds of truth and light will spring forth from the Senate of the United States and this governing body will again recognize and acknowledge His Supreme Authority. *James Madison known as the father of the U.S. Constitution and the 4th President of the United States believed Christianity to be the foundation upon which a just government must be built. He said we have staked our whole future upon our capacity for self-government based upon the Ten Commandments of God. Therefore, we call the Church and the people of this nation to awaken to this Biblical principle of “self-government”. We call this nation to humble itself before our Redeemer who writes His laws upon our hearts. We declare that the Ten Commandments of God will again be venerated by us as a people, will be respected in our classrooms, governmental offices, and even in the highest courts of our land. *Joseph Story, Supreme Court Justice, stated in a speech that Christianity lay at the foundation of Common Law. Therefore we declare that our laws are founded and established upon the Lawgiver—Jesus Christ. We call our nation back to the laws upon which it was established and declare according to this and other historic facts that our nation was built upon the principles of Christianity. In a ruling by the Supreme Court in 1892 it was stated that “our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the teachings of the Redeemer of mankind.” It declared, “Our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.” We set ourselves in agreement with this 1892 ruling of the Supreme Court and declare that we are a Christian nation! This is not based on man’s failure or on our present condition but instead upon the existence of these foundational truths. *When George Washington delivered his famous Inaugural Address in 1789, he acknowledged that every step by which we had advanced to the character of an independent nation was due to God’s intervention and orchestration. Therefore, we acknowledge as the Body of Christ that this nation only exists and continues to exist because of God’s intervention and His hand upon our affairs. We thank Him for His continual intervention and for His discipline lest we fail to exist as a nation. We declare that God who birthed this nation is Lord over it! We give Him glory and praise for continuing to sustain us, to correct us, and to move us into a place of seeing His kingdom come and His will done in and through us. *Daniel Webster, orator and famous American statesman, declared that our forefathers were brought here “by their high veneration for the Christian religion.” He said they sought to impinge and diffuse its influence through all their institutions, civil, political, and literary. We repent for withdrawing into the arena of the church and losing our effect as “salt and light”. We declare that the purposes of God in bringing Christianity to this land will not falter and fail because of our lack of obedient influence, prayer, and fortitude. We pray for another Great Awakening that will fan the embers of Christianity in all our institutions. We call for an awakening to the Holy Spirit of God in every segment of our society—the church, family, education, business, government, media, entertainment and the arts. *James Madison said that before any man could be considered as a member of civil society, he must be considered as a subject of the Governor of the Universe. Therefore, based upon this and many others statements that only righteous leaders could be elected to public office, we call for the voters of this nation to choose wisely—to choose those whose lives are based upon Christian principles of morality and righteousness. We declare that Americans and primarily the Church will awaken to our responsibility to elect men and women to office who will stand on the principles of the Word of God and will acknowledge him in their private and public lives. *When the Pilgrims penned the Mayflower Compact before establishing the colony at Plymouth, they stated that it was to be undertaken by God’s Sovereign leadership and commissioned for the advance of Christianity. Therefore, we call this nation back to its foundation and call this people back to our reason for existence. We are not here to be prosperous or powerful or to fulfill the American dream. We are here because God sovereignly established us here for a divine purpose—the advance of Christianity. According to Acts 17:26-27, we proclaim that He has determined our preappointed times and the boundaries of our dwellings so that we should seek the Lord, find Him, and live and move and have our being as a nation in Him!
  7. Christian's Choice

    Lord God Almighty, Creator of the Heavens and Earth, we come before You to Praise You for Your Goodness. Your Lovingkindness is Everlasting. Your Mercy endures forever. We join together in these prayers of repentance for ourselves, our families and our nation. We have willfully and foolishly turned away from You and our leaders have twisted the arm of Israel to bribe her into giving away Your land. We have been complicit in murdering babies by allowing our leaders and politicians to remain in office. We have turned a cold heart to the poor and homeless without shedding a tear or giving of ourselves to bring comfort. And yet, because of Who YOU are, we dare ask for Mercy. We ask for Mercy because of Your Faithfulness. Keep all of us under Your wings of protection. Hide us in the very folds of Your garments to be released as Your army of Light in Your day for Your purposes and Your harvest. Let us always remember that even Your judgments are redemptive in nature. Purify Your Bride in every single way that is necessary Lord to bring a Holy Spotless Bride to You. You alone are Worthy. May the Lord of the Harvest be magnified and Glorified. Let whatever happens be done by Your hand of mercy for Your purposes. Amen.

  10. Hello from louisiana

    Glad to have 'ya here. I'm in SW Louisiana. Lemme know if I can help. I grew up in Monroe and have friends all over the state.
  11. LBV, I tend to agree with you about communion. Part of the traditional Sabbath celebration is breaking of bread and drinking from a cup of wine with Blessings before and after. In the more Orthodox Jewish synagogues, the cup is 'filled to overflowing' as part of their tradition which I find very interesting. If everything else is a 'type' or 'shadow' as a 'marking' point to get our attention of what God is 'really' up to among the Israelites, I have every reason to believe that Communion is part of that 'remembering'. Some Messianic folk are quick to say 'this is not communion, it's a Sabbath breaking of bread'. They'll even use the scripture from John at the Last Supper about 'as often as you do this, do it in remembrance of Me' as referring to 'as often as you have Passover'. Personally, I'm not buying it. I need to be washed in His Blood daily so I take Communion daily just so that I stop my whole day and consider that. And rather than it becoming a stale routine (which is a matter of each individual heart) it affirms something of my forcefully recognizing my total dependence on Him for everything daily. Taking my eyes off of what I 'see' naturally and looking to Him Who IS my refuge. Nuff said about that. I also think that if we really look carefully at all of the details of a traditional Passover seder, it's so obviously clear about that what that was referring to that I want to SHOUT about it. Every detail of the ceremony just screams YASHUA to me. So much for eating ham (of all things) and fancy dresses and Easter eggs and sweet chocolates for Easter. Try Unleavened bread, horseradish, simple roasted meat and bitter herbs combined with 4 cups of redemption to get a real message. Not to mention the 'broken bread' and 'hidden' Afikomen that is found by a child so that it is thoroughly ingrained in them to 'watch' and seek and look for something that is hidden. Or the idea of leaving a door open and an empty chair for 'Elijah' who is to come. Giving up 'leavened' bread in humility for just one week of eating only unleavened bread just serves to accentuate the great work done at Passover and 'remembering' that with great humility. Shavuot/Pentecost occurs 50 days (not by accident; 49 + 1) after Passover. It's the day celebrated as the giving of 'teaching' and when the Torah (properly translated as teaching) was given to Moses the first time. How interesting it is that it's the same day that Holy Spirit fell on the disciples in Jerusalem (the Teacher) and they were anointed with fire (wait there as directed). If there are more questions, I'll be glad to give you my understanding but I think this addresses most of what I read.

    And we ain't seen nothing yet.
  13. Methods of refrigeration

    Michelle, Do a search for 'icy ball'. Wikipedia and other places have some fairly detailed descriptions and it's actually something that can be built and maintained fairly easily. Let me know privately if you have further questions and I'll try to get you some more info. They can be had for around $600.
  14. Blind Cowboy

    THE BLIND COWBOY An old, blind cowboy wanders into an all-girl biker bar by mistake. He finds his way to a bar stool and orders some coffee. After sitting there for a while, he yells to the waiter, "Hey, you wanna hear a blonde joke?" The bar immediately falls absolutely silent. In a very deep, husky voice, the woman next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, Cowboy, I think it is only fair, given that you are blind, that you should know five things: 1. The bartender is a blonde girl with a baseball bat. 2. The bouncer is a blonde woman. 3. I'm a 6-foot tall, 175-pound blonde gal with a black belt in karate. 4. The woman sitting next to me is blonde and a professional weightlifter. 5. The lady to your right is blonde and a professional wrestler. Now, think about it seriously, Mister. Do you still wanna tell that joke?" The blind cowboy thinks for a second, shakes his head, and mutters, "No...not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times."
