Monday Q&A 6: God and Man — Elisha McFarland

In this post, Elisha McFarland explains the center of Christianity: God and man.

“In dying for the scum of the universe, Jesus bridged the gap between holiness and evil and brought us back into the company of His Father.” – Elisha McFarland


In our past three Q&A’s, we have discussed three highly important topics: the character of God, foundations of Christianity, and Scripture. Yet so far, none of these topics have been as important as the one to be discussed today. God and man. Deo et hominibus. Theós kai ánthropos. The center of Christianity.

Is It a Sin to Fear COVID-19? – John MacArthur

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. [2] I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust.’ [3] Surely He shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. [4] He shall cover thee with His feathers, and under His wings shalt thou trust: His truth shall be thy shield and buckler. [5] Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; [6] Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.” (Psalm 91:1-6)

A Prayer for the World

Please join in prayer as John Piper prays.

“Pray without ceasing.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:17

“Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, [21] Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” – Ephesians 3:20-21

 

Joni Earecksen Tada: ‘A Calming Word’

Joni Earecksen Tada talks about the current coronavirus. Reblogged from Lee Duigon’s blog.

(Thanks to Susan for the heads-up)

Take five minutes to hear Joni Earecksen Tada speak on responding to the coronavirus crisis.

Joni was an athletic teenaged girl when an accident left most of her body paralyzed. That was decades ago. She has been a minister in God’s service ever since.

Anyway, she knows whereof she speaks.

Prayer Request for the People of Japan

A big typhoon is coming.

This typhoon, Japan’s nineteenth typhoon of the year, is predicted to hit the eastern part (most of Honshu) of Japan sometime on the 12th, Sat. or 13th, Sun. The typhoons that have previously come have caused enough trouble already: landslides, houses losing their roofs, etc. The speed of this new typhoon is 50 meters per second. This typhoon has the same strength as the typhoon that caused 1,200 casualties a couple of years ago. Please pray for Japan, especially for God’s people, that the damage won’t be too severe and that there won’t be too many casualties. Please pray that God will use this typhoon to make His people rethink their ways and come back to God and ask for His forgiveness. The salvation of God’s elect is the most important thing. Since all is in God’s hands, it’s not really something to worry about, but I’ll really appreciate your prayers.

1 Peter 5:7 – “Casting all your care upon Him; for He careth for you.”
