CORONAVIRUS PRAYER REQUEST…

My estranged son Chris is a Respiratory Therapist and had a patient who tested positive for the Coronavirus, so he’s been exposed. He has asthma and is at higher risk for a severe illness if he gets the virus. I sent him a text today but I don’t know if he’ll respond,  He doesn’t know the Lord and has not been open to reconciliation. Saints, please remember him and his family in your prayers. Praying for his protection and salvation.

TO MY SON – A Poem

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

CONSIDER HIM THAT ENDURED

Sometimes our trials in this life can be overwhelming, but God’s Word always brings us comfort…

Hebrews 12:3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Albert Barnes Commentary:

For consider him – Attentively reflect on his example that you may be able to bear your trials in a proper manner.

That endured such contradiction of sinners – Such opposition.  The idea is, that we are to pursue the path of duty and follow the dictates of conscience, let the world say what they will about it. In doing this we cannot find a better example than the Saviour. No opposition of sinners ever turned him from the way which he regarded as right; no ridicule ever caused him to abandon any of his plans; no argument, or expression of scorn, ever caused him for a moment to deviate from his course.

Lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds – The meaning is, that there is great danger of being disheartened and wearied out by the opposition which you meet with. But with the bright example of one who was never disheartened, and who never became weary in doing the will of God, you may persevere. The best means of leading a faithful Christian life amidst the opposition which we may encounter, is to keep the eye steadily fixed on the Saviour.

VP MIKE PENCE MEETS WITH POPE: “FELT LIKE COMING HOME”

As you read this post…

Remember the Martyrs who stood against Rome

Evangelicals and Rome, the harlot church

Lifesitenews:  “Pence, a baptized Catholic who now identifies as evangelical, spoke fondly of his Catholic childhood and told diplomats, members of Congress, and Catholic priests and prelates at the annual gathering that being among them felt like ‘coming home.'” (Source lifesitenews)

Vatican City:  “U.S. Vice President Mike Pence told Pope Francis, ‘You made me a hero’ back home by granting him a private audience at the Vatican on Friday.”

“Pence presented Francis with a large, plain wooden cross, which he explained was made from wood from a tree on the grounds of the vice president’s official residence in Washington.”

“Francis gave Pence five bound books of his writings as pope, as well as a copy of the annual peace message.”

Reuters:  “During an exchange of gifts after the private talks, Francis gave Pence a small white box with a papal medal inside.”

“’I didn’t want to ask,’ Pence said with a laugh as the pope handed him the box. ‘This is for mom.’”

As he was leaving the papal library, Pence, still clutching the small white box, said: “‘Thank you, Your Holiness, you have made me a hero … God bless you.’”

GODLY PARENTS AND UNGODLY CHILDREN

I’ve been reading 1 Samuel and it just struck me that Hannah was such a godly woman, and her son Samuel was a prophet and judge, yet Samuel’s sons, Joel and Abiah, were corrupt. Godly parents yet ungodly offspring!

Hannah prays to the Lord asking for a son…

1 Samuel 1:10-11 And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no rasor come upon his head.

The Lord answers Hannah’s prayer and Hannah gives Samuel to the LORD…

1 Samuel 1:27-28 For this child I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him: Therefore also I have lent him to the LORD; as long as he liveth he shall be lent to the LORD. And he worshipped the LORD there.

Hannah’s son Samuel is a prophet and judge…

1 Samuel 3:20 And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the LORD.

1 Samuel 7:15-17 And Samuel judged Israel all the days of his life. And he went from year to year in circuit to Bethel, and Gilgal, and Mizpeh, and judged Israel in all those places. And his return was to Ramah; for there was his house; and there he judged Israel; and there he built an altar unto the LORD.

But Samuel’s sons walked not in his ways…

1 Samuel 8:1-3 And it came to pass, when Samuel was old, that he made his sons judges over Israel. Now the name of his firstborn was Joel; and the name of his second, Abiah: they were judges in Beersheba. And his sons walked not in his ways, but turned aside after lucre, and took bribes, and perverted judgment.

Godly parents, and grandparents, yet ungodly children. It’s amazing to contemplate such a thing, yet we find it often in Scripture, and in our own lives.

Arron’s sons Nadab and Abihu…

Numbers 26:61 And Nadab and Abihu died when they offered profane fire before the LORD.

And Eli’s sons…

1 Samuel 2:12 Now the sons of Eli were sons of Belial; they knew not the LORD.

And King David’s son Absalom…

2 Samuel 15:13-14 And there came a messenger to David, saying, The hearts of the men of Israel are after Absalom. And David said unto all his servants that were with him at Jerusalem, Arise, and let us flee; for we shall not else escape from Absalom: make speed to depart, lest he overtake us suddenly, and bring evil upon us, and smite the city with the edge of the sword.

Matthew 10:37 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
