  1. :amen: I know in my own life that back when I determined to read the Word of God every morning there was a wonderful change. Taking the time to put God first every morning and feeding upon His Word is an excellent way to start the day.


    I truly believe that (through practical experience with Gods Word )this is the only way to keep us ,``spiritually``from sin . Oh sure we can in the flesh ,battle with ourselves ,BUT that never lasts ! Its only when we open up the Word and our hearts to it that we can find true and lasting peace from our sin ! LET Gods Word DO IT ! After all ,isnt that what the Lord wants anyway? Prov.3:5,6,7.
    2 Tim. 2:23 These two passages might seem unrelated to some ,but I see a great relationship between the two. I have used these FOR YEARS to battle daily sin and trials and they work. Even preached a message on Prov. 3:5,6,7 one time about how this simple bit of scripture can be like a spiritual ``firstaid`` kit to us in times of trials and temptation.


  2. A very good point, I wish the sins of the mind were easier to permanently remove.


    blossom ,where do you think these other sins start ? Its like the apostle Paul says ,we MUST die daily to self .
    I believe thats why daily (early morning) devotions are so important . We can take a daily spiritual bath in the Word and remind ourselves right off to ``die daily to self``.
    IN Christ our Lord





  3. Psa 119:9 BETH. Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? by taking heed thereto according to thy word.

    yes, we let the word do the actual cleansing, but we have a responsibility to run with the right kind of people too. The Lored will not "make" you do right, you have to be careful to do it too. Everything we read, watch on tv; or even the people we associate with will affect our walk with the Lord to some extent. WE must decide to do right.


    wholeheartedly agree ! Dont you find its a daily job though? With all the ``things we have in our lives today computer tech. ,television etc etc. ,it seems even being around other Christians ,we have to constently allow the Word to work in us . The ONLY way to do this is to keep in constent touch with the scriptures ! But then again isnt that what the Lord wants in the first place ? Constent fellowship with HIM !




  4. AMEN! That is what this devotion is all about--completely annihilating our sin and never being able to retrieve it again! Good comment, bro. perhaps it is called "Burning bridges" behind us.


    Question : is there any other way to ``discard `` them ,than by reading and studying the Word of God and letting IT cleanse them from our lives ? I have always relied on this cleansing myself. And find that if I ``run`` with the world I`ll get dirtied up again and have to spend MORE time in Word and prayer in order to cleanse myself . Otherwise I stay ``stinky`` with sin . Am I right or am I wrong ?
    God bless




  5. Its wonderful to hear people benefiting from benevolent groceriers.My children ,which are young adults ,are always talking about how Walmart throws away even end of day Deli items such as fried chicken and salads etc. My oldest boy is always trying to get them to sell him the leftovers (not even ``dayold``yet) to take home and freeze . They always tell him ``its no good anymore`` . HOW SAD that americans have let themselves become SO fearful as to discount benevolence.
    I often equate the giving of leftovers of grociers and even department stores ,as well as those that have garage sales, with the Scriptural principle of Gods law to leave the corners of the fields for the poor to harvest . It is actually the same modern day equvalent ! And I do believe that businesses are sinning when not giving of even outdated leftovers.GOD gives us individuals intellegence enough to discern what is good and not good. Dont need govt. laws to dictate what can and cant be dispersed.
    ANYWAYS , PRAISE THE LORD for the abundance He does give !
    God bless


    WOW ! I really digress ! I was going to say , as to your remark about church dinners,if it hadnt been for the giving of others to us this year ,with my disability ,WE would not have been able to take anything . For example,we have been given several gallons of fresh strawberries(which my wife made deserts out of ) and fresh veggies which we took as relish trays,etc. etc. AND we praise the Lord for the receipt of these foods we CAN share with others. To GOD be the GLORY !
    Again ,GOD BLESS


  6. Our last pastor was brought up in a small village where his father owned the local village store. He said they lived on out of date food.

    As I posted on another thread somewhere, last Wednesday I bought two bags full of shopping for less than the price of one of the individual items. From about 8.00pm they start reducing things to the rock bottom/ They start during the afternoon by reducing things that are sell by that day by 25%, about 5.00 they reduce it to 50% then later to 25%. In the later evening they will reduce everything to about 10p (15c) or even 5p or less. Recently we bought a lot of leeks, which we are really fond of, for 5p for 500g, just over a lb. We had so many our freezer was full so we had to take a lot down to the church and put them in the freezer there

    When we had our church barbecue in the summer, I was asked to do salads, and I wanted a red cabbage to make a red cole slaw. They had one but when I asked if I could have it, the young man said No, it was yesterday's date, so it would not go through the tills as the computer would reject it.

  7. Sounds yummy.

    I was hoping you may use fresh chillies as I have some in the freezer which I didn't know what to do with. I will try it soon.

    Today we had shepherd's pie, which I froze at the new year.

    A week or so ago, our local Sainsburys supermarket were giving all shoppers two plastic storage boxes to encourage us to use leftovers. We always do as we were brought up in the war when waste was considered a crime.

    A recent TV programme said that in the UK it was estimated that up to 50% of food sold is wasted. People buy special offers but don't use them.

    On the other hand there is waste at the supermarkets. There are people who call themselves "Fregans" who go to the back of supermarkets and retrieve food that has been thrown away. On one TV programme, one of these people took a reporter to the back of some stores and showed them some of the perfectly usable food which has been discarded. Our Tesco store does not do that, the run it through a compacter, so it cannot be re-used. It something has a best before, display until or use
    by date, they will not sell it after that date, even by 1 minute. The store opens 24 hours.


    Funny you should mention that , because friends of ours know we have had it kinda tight moneywise because of my disability the past year .So they have been bringing us WONDERFUL out of date food from some store that allows out of date items to be given away . The Lord has provided salads and salad fixings (which we would NEVER be able to afford ,paying for it ourselves, Fresh fruit and veggies are too expensive even if ya are working). And give us gourmet breads and veggies and fruits ,(even exotics ),granola,all sorts of cookies and cakes.
    MY point is that The Lord has greatly blessed us with all this.And it is sad that FEAR of being sued has to keep grociers from being generous to the poor and needy . I thank the Lord all the time for our weekly receipt of such good foods. AND the store that provides them ! God bless,

  8. We had chicken and noodles but made it different., "Which is scary cause you never what the family is going to think. I had a family size can of cream of chicken soup , reg. size can of roasted garlic mushroom soup and a lg. can of chicken breast on the shelf . SOOO I through it all together in a pot of noodles . It WAS scary at first but everbody seemed to like it . I think I`ll make some mashed potatoes tomorrow and use them under the leftovers .THAT sounds really good.



  9. Humus and pitta bread.


    Invicta,thanks for the recipes ! Sounds great ! And turning the leftover new potatoes into tater salad sounds even greater !
    Another question if I may ? What is ``humus ``?I believe its some kind of vegitable or green maybe ? Anyway I LOVE all greens and sounds like something my wife and I would like! I always think of DANIEL when eating greens because thats what he requested instead of the Kings perverted meat . HAAHAA !

    In Christ


  10. Lamb steak in a three peppers sauce, steamed new potatoes, runner beans, carrots and celery, left over cauliflower cheese.


    Sounds delicious ! How do you fix your ``new potatoes ``? Just steam them ina double boiler? I LOVE new potatoes ! Just never learned how to cook em ! The way I always ate them it seemed they were steamed then browned in a skillet . But never found anyone to give me verification .Mom passed away before I could ask HER .

  11. Lets look at the facts : No.1 God Word SHALL NOT pass away
    No.2 God is NOT the author of confusion
    No.3 The serpent was the most subtle beast in the garden,i.e. which is how satan works !
    Now , Gods Word shall not pass away which means its preserved for us English Speaking believers . He is not the author of confusion , SO He would NOT have left ``several`` versions of ``subtle `` differences to us !Therefore HE MUST have preserved His Word in One particular version . Also if He is not the author of confusion He undoubltedly gave enough common sense to His disciples to follow His lead by faith in choosing the proper version!
    I have learned by study second and faith first , that the KJV is the ONLY version for the true believer !!
    YES there are subtle differences in the other versions but then THATS HOW SATAN WORKS !
    Forgive me ,for I feel I am preaching to the choir.
    In Christ



  12. Are all bible versions 99.5% the same?

    One of the common and most obvious falsehoods we often hear by those who rail against the idea that the King James Bible is the complete, inspired and 100% true words of God is the claim that all thousands of textual variations out there are very minor and not of any real importance, and that the various bible versions are basically 99.5% the same.

    These ridiculous claims by those who do not believe that ANY Bible in ANY language are the complete, preserved and infallible words of God are so easily proven to be absurdly false that one has to assume that such people are either speaking out of complete ignorance of the facts or they are deliberately lying.

    Here is one such claim found on a popular anti-King James Bible only site written by a man named Steve Rudd. http://www.bible.ca/b-KJV-only.htm We will look carefully at what he says and then respond to his statements. He writes:



  13. Oh, Brother ! YOU ARE SO RIGHT ! This is why I love this site ! Just like the Word of God says reproove , rebuke and exhort one another. AMEN ! Your note has ME doing some soul searching .
    I have found in my own life that it is a matter of simply Trusting and obeying . I understand Satan is ALWAYS going to throw temptations in our faces BUT ....
    Scripture speaks of sactification and is not that what it TAKES ? To overcome those little ``pet sins ``? Paul says ``I count all things but loss ..``Phil. 3:8 also Prov. 3:5-7.
    What it comes down to is HOW Much do we truly LOVE CHRIST ? Enough to put our whole being into His WORD and let Him control us or do we want Him controling us only when it is convenient ? We are tempted when drawn away of our own lusts . Yet God cannot be tempted. So if we be in CHRIST we can hide under His wing from temptation . Yet God gives us a free will .
    I like to say I LOVE GOD but do I really if I only want to obey Him when it is convenient? `NUFF chatter .
    May God bless
