Nov Cleaning: J Keller Family Yard/Mulch Week of 1st: Ben M


Proverbs 15: 18: A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he that is slow to anger appeaseth strife.


This being the week of the presidential election let us remember this comforting truth concerning our sovereign God “…he removeth kings, and setteth up kings” (Dan 2: 21).  No matter the outcome Tuesday the throne over the holy nation in which we are citizens knows no term limits.  Our eternal security is that the very same one who shed his precious blood to make us his purchased possession “hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS” (Rev 19:16)


When Christ cried from Calvary’s cross, “It is finished,” He could have cried, “God is satisfied,” and it would have meant the exact same thing. David Eddmenson


Some imagine a believer makes a co-effort with God to become gradually more holy until at last he is perfect and accepted into heaven.  When it comes to offerings presented to him, God declares “it shall be PERFECT to be ACCEPTED; there shall be no blemish therein” (Lev 22: 21).  When it comes to Christ’s offering God declares, “by one offering he hath PERFECTED for ever them that are sanctified” (Heb 10: 14).  Therefore, when it comes to you who Christ sanctified God declares, “To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us ACCEPTED IN THE BELOVED” (Eph 1: 6).


     It is the duty of every son and daughter of Adam to believe God and obey the gospel (Rom. 16:26), and woe unto those who remain in disobedience and rebellion (II Thess. 1:8-10); but it is not only the duty, but the wonderful privilege and happiness of the children of God to believe Him, have confidence in Him, and trust Him at all times.  What a blessed state we are in when we are able to trust and rest in our great God in all circumstances, whether they are comfortable or painful to the flesh. “Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus.”  What a wonderful truth!  So simple, yet so sublime, so childlike, yet so mature.

     Would to God we could abide in such a state, our souls in perfect peace because our minds are stayed upon Christ, trusting Him (Isa. 26:3, 4; Phil. 4:5-7; Matt. 6: 25-34).  We ought to be like old Ezra, who having spoken such great things about his sovereign covenant God, was “ashamed” at the thought of asking the king’s protection for his long dangerous trip to Jerusalem (Ezra 8:22). We profess that our God is absolutely sovereign over all things…let us pray for faith to live accordingly.  We say that He makes all things to work together for our good (Rom. 8: 28)…let us pray to trust Him, and rest our souls in His sovereign will, with thanksgiving. Let us pray that our practice would be more consistent with our preaching, so that our great God would be honored more, and we would be “ashamed” less.    Maurice Montgomery       


When the apostle Paul, along with some Roman soldiers, was providentially found to be in the midst of a storm called “Euroclydon,” he gave this word of assurance to all those who were fearing for their lives…“sirs, be of good cheer: for I believe God, that it shall be even as it was told me” (Acts 27:25). The Lord had promised Paul that he must stand before Caesar (Acts 27:24) and the apostle, by the grace of God, rested in the Lord’s word. There was no way that God’s word would fail.

     Brethren, we’re all promised that our faith shall be tried, (James 1:3), but may the Lord bring back to our minds His promise to each of His own…“I’ll never leave thee, nor forsake thee.” And by the grace of God, the Lord’s people believe that it shall be as it was told them.                                                                                 Marvin Stalnaker               



“Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory” (Ephesians 1:14)

Beloved, the earnestness of our inheritance is that we are His purchased possession, purchased with His precious blood. Beloved, we are and will be redeemed in that day, unto the praise of His glory, not ours. All of God’s people, through His unmerited grace and revelation, are made to know, believe and rejoice in this — Christ is the author and finisher of their faith; they are kept through His faithfulness, and not their own [Hebrews 12:2, 1 Peter 1:5].  Joseph Murphy


Apart from Jesus Christ there is no reason for me or anyone else to exist. He is our reason for everything for time and eternity. Colossians 1:16-17  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.         John Chapman



Genesis 46: 30: And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive.

When Israel saw his son, Joseph, it foreshadowed the blessing of beholding the Son that would come through Israel ages later, the Lord Jesus Christ.  When Simeon saw the Lord Jesus he said the same as Israel, “Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: for mine eyes have seen thy Salvation” (Lu 2: 29-30).  No matter what else we may be preparing for in this life the question is “Are you prepared to die?” Only when we have cast all our care into Christ’s hand, trusting Christ to present us in his perfection alone, are we prepared to meet holy God (Col 1: 21-23).  Are you prepared?
