Weekly ReCap – 11-30-2007 – Tis the Season

Tis the season. . . for shopping or the birth of the savior of the world, Jesus Christ?

Tis the season of joyous celebration and waiting; Celebration of the Lord, Immanuel, God that came down and dwelt among us to save us for all eternity, and waiting for Him to return! Tis the season of Advent, Latin Advenio, meaning ‘to come to’, waiting for the Lord ‘to come to’ us or return to us.

I would encourage you to participate in the short Advent readings noted below. They will help focus your mind on the true spirit of the season.

Come, O Come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel!

“‘The process of selecting appropriate Christmas presents for children is a microcosm of the spiritual tension millions of Christian adults wrestle with,’ the California-based researcher explained. ‘Many Christian parents are striving to serve two conflicting masters: society and God. They refuse to believe that they cannot satisfy both. Sadly, this Christmas season will produce enormous stress for numerous Christian parents who don’t want to disappoint either God or their children, but whose ultimate choices will disappoint both God and themselves, while providing gifts that are not in the best interests of their children. For Christians, the Christmas season should be a time of celebration and appreciation of the life of Jesus Christ. Instead, that joy is being minimized by the pressure and confusion introduced by our focus on material consumption and fulfillment.’”
(“Christian Parents Are Not Comfortable With Media But Buy Them for Their Kids Anyway” The Barna Group, Nov. 19, 2007)

I am grateful for:
- Christ’s Church, the body, family, and fellowship of those He has called His children. (Pray that God would encourage Chaplain Adesola in Nigeria and bless his widow ministry!)
- The wonder of forced air heating.
- My Proverbs 31 wife! {Please click the link to see what I mean!}

Bible Challenge 2007 - Week 35

Week 35

I was talking with a mentor of mine this week and he noted that the greatest joy someone can experience in life is when they see and feel God working in them and through them. I agree.

And committing to and reading through God’s Word has opened my eyes to see and my heart to feel God working in me and through me. I have been praying recently for someone in need, and just today saw the prayer answered in a big (Godly) way! Praise God!

I pray you have continued to prayerfully read through God’s Word, and I pray He has blessed you with the same joy of seeing and feeling Him work in and through you. If you’ve fallen behind, no matter how far behind, just pick up where we are today. Let’s continue to worship God with our minds and hearts through our dedication to reading His Word.

Sunday Jeremiah 49-52
Monday Lamentations 1-3
Tuesday Lamentations 4-5
Wednesday Ezekiel 1-3
Thursday Ezekiel 4-6
Friday Ezekiel 7-9
Saturday Ezekiel 10-12

“There are mountains to climb. There is rugged terrain to navigate. There are opportunities for growth, but many of us are kicking back. The Christian life is like a greased pole: either you are climbing or slipping. How about you? Are you climbing? Are you growing? Are you maturing? Or are you going backward? It is time for us to use what God has given so we can go out and do some serious spiritual four-wheeling.”
(“Spiritual Cruise Control” by Greg Laurie. Crosswalk.com)

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Advent - Christmas Readings - First Sunday Dec. 2nd

Advent Readings – Year A, from The online Revised Common Lectionary

First Sunday: December 2nd

Isaiah 2:1-5

Psalm 122

Romans 13:11-14

Matthew 24:36-44

Advent
“(from the Latin Advenio, meaning ‘to come to’, ‘the coming of the Saviour’) is a holy season of the Christian church, the period of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Christ, also known outside the Church as the season of Christmas.”

Adventus is the Latin word for ‘coming’, and is the exact Latin equivalent for the Greek word parousia, commonly used in reference to the Second Coming. Christians believe that the season of Advent serves a dual reminder of the original waiting that was done by the Hebrews for the birth of their Messiah as well as the waiting that Christians today endure as they await the second coming of Jesus.”

“The theme of readings and teachings during advent is often to prepare for the Second Coming while commemorating the First Coming of Christ at Christmas. With the view of directing the thoughts of Christians to the first coming of Jesus Christ as Saviour, and to his second coming as Judge, special lessons are prescribed for each of the four Sundays in Advent.”
(excerpted from Advent Wikipedia)

Weekly ReCap - 11-21-2007 - Give Thanks!

Give Thanks!

“Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!”
- 2 Corinthians 9:15

“Although it be not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are far from want.”
- Pilgrim Edward Winslow, on the first Thanksgiving (qtd. in Barton)

It is sometimes easy to overlook God’s blessings or cast them off as coincidence.

Most of our children are taught by our educators that the Pilgrims were saved by the Indians, and the Indians surely helped, but it was the Indians that were “astonished to behold” the work of God through the Pilgrims as recorded by William Bradford, a signer of the Mayflower Compact and second governor of Plymouth Plantation (in other words, an eyewitness). In one recorded incident, the Indians were astonished by the rain that came after a day of fasting, “a solemn day of humiliation, to seek ye Lord by humble and fervent prayer, in this great distress”. And the harvest that followed led to the feast of Thanksgiving. (Bradford)

I pray that God would richly bless you, that He would grant you peace, safety and joy as you turn your thoughts toward Him in thanks. I pray that He would open our hearts to His Holy work in our lives. I pray that the people of our nation would return to the Lord of Hosts! To walk in truth, in justice, and in righteousness. In Jesus Christ’s name I pray – Amen.

Psalm 100

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.

Worship the LORD with gladness;
come before him with joyful songs.

Know that the LORD is God.

It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Enter his gates with thanksgiving

and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.

For the LORD is good

and his love endures forever;
his faithfulness continues through all generations.

I am grateful for:
- life, and that Christ has given me life to the fullest!
- my families health and safety.

Bible Challenge 2007 - Week 34

Week 34

Thank you, God, for being merciful and gracious! Thank you for your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, your Holy Spirit, and your Word. Lord you are good, and your love is eternal; your faithfulness endures forever. Thank you. (Psalm 100)

Return to the Lord of Hosts! Walk in truth, in justice, and in righteousness. Love the Lord your God and love others as you love yourself and then the nations will be blessed by Him! (Jeremiah 4:1-2, Matthew 22:36-39)

Sunday Jeremiah 28-30
Monday Jeremiah 31-33
Tuesday Jeremiah 34-36
Wednesday Jeremiah 37-39
Thursday Jeremiah 40-42
Friday Jeremiah 43-45
Saturday Jeremiah 46-48

“[The Romanian police] demanded, ‘Sabina Wurmbrand? We know you are hiding weapons in here. Tell us where they are!’ Before she could argue, they were throwing open trunks and closets, and emptying drawers on the floor. They kept shouting, ‘So, you won’t show us where the weapons are hidden? We’ll tear this place apart!’ Sabina, struggling to remain calm, said simply, ‘The only weapon we have in this house is here,’ and picked up the Bible from under their feet. . . As Sabina was led away, she mourned the loss of her ‘weapon,’ her Bible, but gained strength from knowing that she had hidden its words in her heart, where they could not be confiscated. . . As an ancient soldier would depend on his sword, so we must depend on the sharp edge of Scripture to clear a path for our safety. Sadly, too many Christians are left defenseless in a spiritual struggle. They have not memorized the Bible like Sabina; they are unable to draw upon its strength. Don’t be another spiritual casualty. Take up your sword today.” (“The Bible was Her Weapon” by Stacy L. Harp, persecutionblog.com)

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

* Taken Into Custody: The War Against Fathers, Marriage and the Family

By Stephen Baskerville, a Howard Center Fellow. Baskerville’s book exposes the devastating cost of the American divorce industry, including civil liberties violations, broken families and disrupted lives.

Why is the American family in crisis? Taken Into Custody argues that the most direct cause is the divorce industry: a government-run system that tears apart families, separates children from fit and loving parents, confiscates the wealth of families, and turns law-abiding citizens into criminals in ways they are powerless to avoid.

"Hopefully, this book will serve as the catalyst that has been needed for so long that will finally expose the corruption in this nation's family courts and how the judges are ALL in on the profiteering! It is truly disgusting what is being allowed (and indeed approved) to happen in this country.

In 2006, Ohio collected 2.1 BILLION dollars in child support and spousal support payments! Because of this, they were able to obtain approximately an additional BILLION dollars from the Federal Government in incentives and block grants that can go into the GENERAL FUND! Basically, for every dollar the state claims as an enforcement expense, the Feds give them back $2. If you were told that for every dollar you spend remodeling your house, the government would give you back $2, can you imagine the remodeling that would start tomorrow??"
By Nataliya M. Vanosdell (Maineville, OH)

Baskerville is an assistant professor of government at Patrick Henry College, and president of the American Coalition for Fathers of Children. His writings on family and fatherhood have appeared in The Washington Post, The Washington Times, The American Spectator and National Review, among other newspapers and periodicals. He has made numerous appearances in the broadcast media, including The O’Reilly Factor and Hardball with Chris Matthews. Baskerville has a PhD. from the London School of Economics.

* Whitewash

By Brent Bozell, Founder Media Research Center

How does the wife of an impeached President, the policy architect of a 1300-page left-wing health-care fiasco, and the document-shredding stonewaller of a welter of scandals return as a party favorite for a White House run?

The answer in three words: The liberal media.

The media have elevated and coroneted Hillary Clinton, and along the way downplayed or ignored her every scandal--even bizarrely suggesting to us that we should hold her in high esteem for her honesty and integrity. In fact, a Time reporter recently called her a "moral conservative."

“God’s breath. When we come to that realization, we can no longer live without the influence of the Bible. The very words must be allowed to transform our lives. We must conform to it, rather than trying to make it conform to our desires. The Bible, the Word of God, it is eternal, it is unchanging, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away” (Matthew 24:35).” (“The Bible” by Mick Dobra)

All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

Teachers: Free Offer from Gateways to Better Education

Teachers: Free Offer from Gateways to Better Education:

Thanksgiving gives you an opportunity to help stop the growing fear of acknowledging America's Christian heritage in public. Too many school teachers censor any reference to God when teaching students about Thanksgiving EVEN THOUGH THAT IS THE POINT OF THIS NATIONAL HOLIDAY!

You CAN Promote the Real Meaning of Thanksgiving at School!

Equipped with Gateways' Thanksgiving Restoration Cards you can help educators teach that Thanksgiving is about thanking GOD for His blessings. The Thanksgiving Restoration Card looks like a greeting card, but it is packed with helpful information written in a "non-preachy", light-hearted style teachers at your school will appreciate.

The eight-page booklet begins with a story entitled "Talking Turkey about Thanksgiving." In the short story, a teacher visits a store looking for Thanksgiving decorations of Pilgrims and Native Americans. At the store, she encounters a talking turkey who explains that if he is going to end up giving his life for the holiday, he wants students to understand what it is really all about--thanking God.

The teacher raises objections based on common misunderstandings about the separation of church and state, but the smart bird addresses each one!

The booklet includes Presidential proclamations (from both political parties) calling on the nation to thank God for our blessings.

It includes Supreme Court comments on accommodating religion, and it offers seven lesson plan ideas for teaching about Thanksgiving.

A Special E-newsletter FREE Offer

When you order Gateways' Thanksgiving Restoration Cards online, you will also receive a FREE summary of YOUR STATE'S ACADEMIC STANDARDS indicating where the Bible and America's Judeo-Christian heritage can be taught (including Thanksgiving). Make as many copies of this summary as you want!

CLICK HERE to read more about how to order online today!

You can give the cards to your school's teachers along with copies of your state's academic standards showing what they are expected to teach students about Thanksgiving.

Order today with plenty of time for teachers to improve their lesson plans for Thanksgiving. http://www.gtbe.org/store/index.php/sku/4.html


Yours for Keeping the Faith in Public Schools,

Eric Buehrer

Weekly ReCap – 11-09-2007 – Thanksgiving

Who are you giving thanks to this season?

Most everyone will be celebrating Thanksgiving this month. Giving thanks for their health, wealth, the bounty of food at the table, etc. . . But how many people will stop and ask, “Who am I giving thanks to?”

The Pilgrims knew exactly who they were giving thanks to. In fact their very lives and cause were for the one they were thanking.

In the name of God, Amen. . . Having undertaken, for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith, and honor of our King and Country, a voyage to plant the first colony in the northern parts of Virginia, do by these presents solemnly and mutually, in the presence of God, and one of another, covenant and combine our selves together into a civil body politic, for our better ordering and preservation and furtherance of the ends aforesaid;” – The Mayflower Compact, 1620 [emphasis added]

    The IDOP is a call for Christians worldwide to uplift those who are suffering for Christ and pray that they will remain faithful in the face of trials and tribulation.

    “The grass withers, the flowers fade, but the word of our God remains forever.”(Isaiah 40:8)
    Read more. . .
When the Pilgrims landed safely, they celebrated with a reading of Psalm 100 to give thanks to God!

Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth.
Worship the LORD with gladness;

come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the LORD is God.

It is he who made us, and we are his;
we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving

and his courts with praise;
give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;

his faithfulness continues through all generations.

I am grateful for:
- the courage of those Pilgrims that planted the seeds of this great nation.
- the freedom and safety we have as Christians in this nation.
- the love of my family.
