Science

Science.
Real Science. I’m giving thanks today for real Science.
Following real Science will lead every honest seeker to GOD.

Science.
Math.
Literature.
Music.
Art.
Architecture.

All these things have their origin in GOD. 
Don’t believe me? 
Read your Bible.
Cover to Cover and you will find all the above in the Literature of all literature. 
The Book of Job will be especially interesting to the honest seeker of Science. 
Here, start HERE at Job 1 – choose your translation. 

I wonder how many things we do in our society not because we have applied the science but because it’s just what we do. 
We have been told it is good and we assume they are correct. 
Are they? And who are they anyway? 

What did GOD say? 

Well, the month of November will be closing soon.
LORD willing I will continue to write, but probably not as often. 🙂

Dead or Alive?

Admittedly, it’s my opinion, an opinion born of observation. 

The Church (by that I mean people as a whole professing to be Christians) has forgotten we have a real enemy.
The church at large, for a way long time now, conducts business as though Satan is dead or at the most just a little cartoon character with neither power nor gumption to pay us any mind. 
How about this?

1 Peter 5:8  (NKJV) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. source

Or this one?

John 10:10  (NKJV) 10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. source

And this one?

Job 2:7  (NKJV) So Satan went out from the presence of the Lord, and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head. source

Does this sound like someone we should just ignore, pretend he does not exist? 

Let’s look at another one. 

Mark 4:15  (NKJV) 15 And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts. source

Shall we ignore this? If we do, he is well at work just as described in Mark 4:15.

Am I suggesting we live in mortal fear of him? Hiding in our homes refusing to venture out, afraid to open our mouths? 
Nope. Just cultivate a healthy respect for a deadly enemy and a passion to abide in an intimate fellowship with our Father Who can right today send him cowering in mortal fear and eventually to the Lake of Fire forever. 

Here. Read this from Revelation 20 and have a delightful day! 

Revelation 20:1 Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years; 
and he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand years were finished. But after these things he must be released for a little while. source

Now when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison 
and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. 
They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city. And fire came down from God out of heaven and devoured them. 
10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. source

How’s that for encouragement?

First Drink

Just a quick, short thought to share this morning. Admittedly, taken out of context and lifted from the situation.  

Job 8:11-12 (AMP)11 “Can the papyrus grow up without a marsh? Can the rushes or reed grass grow without water?  12 “While it is still green (in flower) and not cut down, Yet it withers before any other plant [when without water].source


I know little about papyrus (perhaps I’ll go to Duck, Duck Go a little later and read up on it) but without water, it withers faster than other vegetation. That’s what the verses say.

So do I. So do we. Without the Water of The Word, we wither quickly — before morning coffee if The Water of The Word is not our First Drink.

Good Wednesday Morning . . .

Update.
From Britannica

Papyrus, writing material of ancient times and also the plant from which it was derived, Cyperus papyrus (family Cyperaceae), also called paper plant. The papyrus plant was long cultivated in the Nile delta region in Egypt and was collected for its stalk or stem, whose central pith was cut into thin strips, pressed together, and dried to form a smooth thin writing surface.

Minuscule of Misery

11 “What strength do I have left, that I should wait [and hope]? And what is ahead of me, that I should be patient and endure? From Job 6 – source


I have in my soul felt what Job described here, yet for a minuscule of the misery compared to his.

And GOD delivered him to a future he could not have imagined.

This corrects me and encourages me.  🙂
You’re welcome.
Job 42:10 When Job prayed for his friends, the Lord restored his fortunes. In fact, the Lord gave him twice as much as before!

16 Job lived 140 years after that, living to see four generations of his children and grandchildren. 17 Then he died, an old man who had lived a long, full life.  source
