GOD'S first and greatest object is his own glory.

There was a time, before all time, when there was no day, except the Ancient of days- when God dwelt alone in the magnificence of his sublime solitude.

Whether he should create, or not create was a question depending upon the answer to another question- "Would it be to his honor or not?"

He determined that he would glorify himself by creating; but, in creating, beyond all doubt, his motive was his own glory.

And since that time, he has ever ruled the earth, and blessed it with the same object in his infinite mind-his own glory and honor.

A lesser motive for God to have, would be less than divine.

The very highest virtue of God is for him to magnify himself in all his greatness as the Infinite and the Eternal. Whatever, then, God permits or does, he does with this one motive- his own glory.

And even salvation, costly though it was, and infinitely a benefaction to us, had for its first object, and for its grand result, the exaltation of the Being and of the attributes of the Supreme Ruler.

It is the highest position to which you or I could attain--to live for God.

"The evil and suffering in this world are greater than any of us can comprehend. But evil and suffering are not ultimate. God is. Satan, the great lover of evil and suffering, is not sovereign. God is.
“He does according to his will among the host of heaven and among the inhabitants of the earth; and none can stay his hand or say to him, ‘What have you done?’” (Daniel 4:35)
He declares “the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose.’” (Isaiah 46:10)
“Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the Lord has commanded it? Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that good and bad come?” (Lamentations 3:37-38; see Amos 3:6)
“Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the Lord that will stand.” (Proverbs 19:21; see 16:9)
“The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the Lord.” (Proverbs 16:33) .. Therefore, “if God is for us, who can be against us? . . .Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all the day long; we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.’ No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us” (Romans 8:31-37).

"Grieve Not the Holy Spirit" Eph. 4:30.

Some Christians live and act and talk as if there were no judgment to come; toiling for wealth as if this world were all. They are as careless of souls, as though hell were a dream.Unmoved by eternal realities, unstirred by the terrors of the Lord, indifferent to the ruin of mankind, many professors live like worldlings, and are as unchristian as infidels. This is an indisputable fact, but one to be lamented with tears of blood.We are the purchase of Jesus' death upon the tree- he has bought us dearly, and he should have us altogether for himself.It should be the one end and object of our desire, to crown that head with gems, which once was crowned with thorns.~Spurgeon, "Grieve Not the Holy Spirit"~
Jesus deserves our best!
Every wound of his claims us, and every pain he bore,and every groan that escaped his lips, is a fresh reason for our holiness and complete devotion to his cause.
How must he grieve over us because we have not that tenderness of heart,that melting of love, that vehemence of zeal, that earnestness of soul which we ought to exhibit!

Set your affections on things above,
not on things on the earth." Col. 3:2

It's all about HIM! IS it?....Do we give Him the adoration He truly deserves. Do we share the love to others that He has shares with us. Do others see a difference in us, do they see the stillness in us, only found in HIm. Do they see our faith that whatever happens we have a calmness that we have draw from Christ. As we go out into the world do we let others know about the saving grace found in Christ? Do we take every opportunity to share the saving grace of God to those around us? Do we draw strength from Him when we are down in the valley? Do we pray enough? I have been asking myself these questions more and amore and I finding myself more ashamed of my walk. I need to make it more about Him then about me. Is it for His glory..or for mine?

The love of Jesus has a gracious influence on the life,conduct, and conversation of a true believer. The tree is known by its fruit; and those branches alone which bring forth fruit unto God, are in manifest union with the only true Vine.

Love to Jesus is the constraining principle of all holy obedience."If you love Me,keep my commandments,"was His dying injunction to His disciples. As,then,
His bleeding love is experimentally known, there will be . . .
a conformity to His image,
an obedience to His will,
a walking in His footsteps

May your day be filled with joy dear!

To My Dear and Loving Husband
by Anne Bradstreet

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me ye women if you can.
I prize thy love more then whole Mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee, give recompence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay,
The heavens reward thee manifold I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persever,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.

These are the days of Elijah
Declaring the Word of the Lord

And these are the days of your servant Moses
Righteousness being restored

And though these are days of great trials
Of famine and darkness and sword

Still we are the voice in the desert crying
Prepare ye the way of the Lord!

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

And these are the days of Ezekiel
The dry bones becoming as flesh

And these are the days of your servant David
Rebuilding a temple of praise

And these are the days of the harvest
The fields are as white in the world

And we are the labourers in your vineyard
Declaring the word of the Lord!

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!

There's no God like Jehovah!
(Repeat 3 times)

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

Behold He comes! Riding on the clouds!
Shining like the sun! At the trumpet call
Lift your voice! It's the year of Jubilee!
And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

And out of Zion's hill salvation comes!

I read this by Tozer and thought it was wee said.....

Evangelism: A Cheap Salvation

But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness and handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. --2 Corinthians 4:2

Here again is seen the glaring discrepancy between Biblical Christianity and that of present-day evangelicals, particularly in the United States (And Canada)....

To make converts here we are forced to play down the difficulties and play up the peace of mind and worldly success enjoyed by those who accept Christ. We must assure our hearers that Christianity is now a proper and respectable thing and that Christ has become quite popular with political bigwigs, well-to-do business tycoons and the Hollywood swimming pool set. Thus assured, hell-deserving sinners are coming in droves to "accept" Christ for what they can get out of Him; and though one now and again may drop a tear as proof of his sincerity, it is hard to escape the conclusion that most of them are stooping to patronize the Lord of glory much as a young couple might fawn on a boresome but rich old uncle in order to be mentioned in his will later on. Born After Midnight, 17.

"Lord, don't let me fall into the trap of offering a cheap salvation. Remind me often that redemption that cost the life of Your Son should never be so cheapened. Amen"

Isa 57:15 (NLT) "The high and lofty one who inhabits eternity, the Holy One, says this: "I live in that high and holy place with those whose spirits are contrite and humble. I refresh the humble and give new courage to those with repentant hearts."

I have often loved darkness,
observed lying vanities,
forsaken thy mercies,
trampled underfoot they beloved Son,
mocked thy providence,
flattered thee with my lips,
broken thy covenant,
It is of thy compassion that I am not consumed.
Lead me to repentance, and save me from despair;
Let me come to thee renouncing, condemning, loathing myself,
but hoping in the grace that flows even to the chief of sinners.
At the cross may I contemplate the evil of sin, and abhor it,
look on him whom I pierced,
as one slain for me, and by me.
- From The Valley of Vision.

A Bennett

If you're headed in the wrong direction, God allows U-Turns. He is a God of Grace, a God of fogiveness. He loves His own, so much. His gift of eternal life to us and the promises associated with it are never in jeopardy. We are His children Forever, for Eternity. There is no greater love found, then the love found in Our Savior Jesus Christ and no greater forgivness found,then from Him and Him alone.

If you have sinned, do not lie down without repentance; for the want of repentance after one has sinned makes the heart yet harder and harder.-- John Bunyan

An error gracefully acknowledged is a victory won. Caroline Gascoigne

Let any man turn to God in earnest, let him begin to exercise himself unto godliness, let him seek to develop his powers of spiritual receptivity by trust and obedience and humility, and the results will exceed anything he may have hoped in his leaner and weaker days. ... A. W. Tozer

Repentance is a grace of God's Spirit whereby a sinner is inwardly humbled and visibly reformed. -- THOMAS WATSON

I have to admit I sometimes watch American Idol. I love to see new talent, but I do not like how Simon Cowell demeans people. There is a British show just like American Idol and Simon Cowell also is on this show. I was checking You Tube out and for the first time Mr. Cowell was speechless and it took an ordinary man, no one special to fool this man.

I love Opera and Paul Potts is the name of this man and please listen to this beautiful voice. It made me cry, listening to him.
