Happy Thanksgiving (2020)

Here is a Thanksgiving greeting from my brother in Christ, SlimJim!

The Domain for Truth

Veritas domain thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!

It has been a crazy year.  Sometimes it seems our life is a little microsm of things going on in 2020 with the news.  Ministry has been crazy (in a good way).  But we have many reasons to be thankful to God!  Grateful fo God’s grace to our family.  Something I’m especially thankful is our salvation made possible through the Father’s Plan, the Son’s sacrifice and the Spirit’s conviction and regeneration!

Movie Monday: “Ten of the Top Scientific Facts in the Bible”

Every word in God’s holy Scriptures is absolutely true. Please do not deny the truth of the Holy Bible, for it is inerrant in every part. Watch the video below: I highly recommend it.

“Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him.”

Proverbs 30:5

140 Thy word is very pure: therefore Thy servant loveth it.

Psalm 119:140

Holy, Holy, Holy

1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the LORD sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

Isaiah 6:1-3 KJV

Lyrics

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee;
Holy, holy, holy, merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who was, and is, and evermore shall be.

Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in pow’r, in love, and purity.

Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise Thy Name, in earth, and sky, and sea;
Holy, holy, holy; merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons, blessed Trinity!

Reginald Heber (Writer)

Amazing Grace

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 

– Romans 5:8 NKJV

– Lyrics –


Amazing grace, How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears relieved.
How precious did that grace appear
The hour I first believed.

Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come,
‘Tis grace has brought me safe thus far
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promised good to me
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yea, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease
I shall possess within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

When we’ve been there ten thousand years
Bright shining as the sun,
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise
Than when we’ve first begun.

John Newton

Two Years of Blogging: A Special Thank You to You!

I’d like to say some thank-yous to those who have been so kind as to become friends with me and who are a big part of this blog.

First of all, I thank my God, the Lord Jesus Christ, for this blog, for the privilege of sharing the truth, and for all my blogging friends! Most of all, I thank God for saving me from all my sins by sending His only begotten Son, Jesus (John 3:16), who is the Lamb of God, the perfect sacrifice that takes away the sin of the world (John 1:29), to die on the cross for my sins, paying the full price for my sins, and for God the Holy Spirit who showed me my need for a Savior and gave me a new heart and life! As a depraved sinner, I still sin, but my only confidence that my sins are forgiven is in Jesus Christ, my Advocate with the Father (1 John 2:1)! All the glory be to our Triune God!

I thank you all, my friends, for your kindness in being an important part of this blog and for all the support you give me! I thank Lee Duigon, author of the Bell Mountain series, for recommending me to start a blog! Now my blog’s been a big part of my life and I want to continue to glorify God with it!

Thank you, God, for letting me have this blog for two years. May I use it for Your glory!

In Christ Alone

12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

– Lyrics –


In Christ alone my hope is found,
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My Comforter, my All in All,
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

In Christ alone! – who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe.
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save:
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied –
For every sin on Him was laid;
Here in the death of Christ I live.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain:
Then bursting forth in glorious day
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,
For I am His and He is mine –
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

No guilt in life, no fear in death,
This is the power of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No power of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand:
Till He returns or calls me home,
Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.

How Deep the Father’s Love For Us

16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because He laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

– 1 John 3:16 KJV

– Lyrics –


How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.
How great the pain of searing loss –
The Father turns His face away,
As wounds which mar the Chosen One
Bring many sons to glory.

Behold the man upon a cross,
My sin upon His shoulders;
Ashamed, I hear my mocking voice
Call out among the scoffers.
It was my sin that held Him there
Until it was accomplished;
His dying breath has brought me life –
I know that it is finished.

I will not boast in anything,
No gifts, no power, no wisdom;
But I will boast in Jesus Christ,
His death and resurrection.
Why should I gain from His reward?
I cannot give an answer;
But this I know with all my heart –
His wounds have paid my ransom.

Stuart Townend
