Nuggets – Crown of Glory

Crown of Glory
“She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.” (Proverbs 4:9)

There are five specific “crowns” mentioned in the New Testament as rewards for faithful service, presumably to be rewarded by Christ at His judgment seat (1 Corinthians 3:14). These are the “incorruptible” crown (1 Corinthians 9:25; 2 Corinthians 5:10); the “crown of righteousness” (2 Timothy 4:8); the “crown of rejoicing” (1 Thessalonians 2:19); “the crown of life” (James 1:12; Revelation 2:10); and lastly the “crown of glory” (1 Peter 5:4).

Although the crown of glory is mentioned only once in the New Testament, the phrase occurs four times in the Old Testament, each providing special insight into its character and scope. The first is Proverbs 4:9: “[Wisdom] shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.”

The other three are, in order, as follows:

“The hoary head is a crown of glory, if it be found in the way of righteousness” (Proverbs 16:31).

“In that day shall the LORD of hosts be for a crown of glory, and for a diadem of beauty, unto the residue of his people” (Isaiah 28:5).

“Thou [probably a reference to the new Jerusalem] shalt also be a crown of glory in the land of the LORD, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God” (Isaiah 62:3).

The one New Testament reference, in 1 Peter 5:4, is a wonderful promise to the faithful shepherds of each “little flock” (Luke 12:32) of believers: “And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.”

We do not know exactly what these crowns will be composed of, but when we see the Lord we shall lay each of them before His throne (Revelation 4:10). HMM

HE LIFTS US UP: Do You “Talk the Talk” or “Walk the Walk”?

They call themselves “Christians”,
but they curse and they shout…
But is this how Christ acted…
and is this what Christianity is about?
They sit on church pews
in their own “Sunday best”…
then go home to pornography…
so is this passing the test?
Many deceive their spouses,
while having extramarital affairs…
then return home to pretend
that they really do care.
Many abuse their families,
emotionally and physically beat…
then talk about God
like they sit at His feet.
So think about what you do…
and think about what you say.
Do you “talk the talk”?
Or do you walk the right way.
For there is a huge difference
it’s superficial to “talk the talk”
versus the deeper relationship
with God to “walk the walk”.

© Secret Angel and The Abuse Expose’ with Secret Angel, 2014.

Dear Lord, only You know what lies deep within each heart. Please purify our hearts and draw us into a deeper relationship with You. Bring healing and restoration to all, and help us to walk as You walked in total obedience to our Abba Father… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Garden of Nuts? ~ SoS Saturday

I went down to the garden of nuts
To see the verdure of the valley,
To see whether the vine had budded
And the pomegranates had bloomed.

Song of Songs 6:11 NKJV

Nuggets – Halloween

Halloween
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” (1 Timothy 4:1)

Halloween was a corruption of “Hallowed E’en,” the evening before “All Saints Day” in which civil disobedience and sinful license were tolerated prior to the forgiveness and penance sought the next day.

Although the level of debauchery and wickedness has waxed and waned over the centuries, nothing “hallowed” has ever been associated with the practice—until more recent times among evangelical churches. Now we promote a “Harvest Festival” or a “Bible Character Dress-up Night”—much of which encourages the practice of costuming and treats as a harmless alternative.

The difficulty is not with the church activities but with the timing and the association with that which is evil. That obvious connection with a pagan holiday will undermine resolve to “come out from among them, and be ye separate” (2 Corinthians 6:17).

Yes, no doubt that passage warns against an “unequal yoke” in marriage—but its primary focus is on church and individual purity! “What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?” (2 Corinthians 6:14-15).

As a parent, I know the pain of restricting my children from participating in the “fun” of Halloween. And as a former pastor, I know the pressure to accommodate the majority of church members who see no “harm” in such things. However, our allegiance and our responsibility are to the Lord, not men (Colossians 3:23). HMM III

Child of the World – Ask Jesus to come into your heart

Question: “Is it biblical to ask Jesus into your heart?”

Answer:“All you need to do to be saved is to ask Jesus to come into your heart.” The problem with this statement is that it is not expressly biblical. The Bible nowhere mentions Jesus coming into a person’s heart. The wording generates a mental image that can easily lead to wrong impressions. The idea of Jesus entering a person’s heart is nowhere used in any gospel presentation in the Bible. Even the Scripture verse from which the “ask Jesus into your heart” concept is usually taken,Revelation 3:20, does not mention the heart or our asking Jesus to do anything. In context,Revelation 3:20is speaking about the church fellowshipping with Jesus, not an individual person getting saved.

When the Bible gives a gospel presentation, it encourages people to believe (John 3:16;Acts 16:31), receive (John 1:12), or change their minds, i.e., repent (Acts 3:19). That is the proper response to the gospel. We are to change our minds about our sin and about who Christ is, believe Jesus died and rose again, and receive the gift of eternal life in faith. We are to recognize that we are sinners (Romans 3:23), understand that we deserve to be eternally separated from God (Romans 6:23), trust that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sins (2 Corinthians 5:21;1 Peter 2:24), and receive the gift of salvation God offers us (Ephesians 2:8–9). All of this is done in faith, with God’s enabling (John 6:44). Salvation is not something we do or earn. Salvation is something we receive from God due to His mercy and grace.

Praise God testimony from People in Need Ministries, India.

Greetings from India! We thank you soo much for your immediate response and willing to pray and help the Christian families who were badly affected by the Hudhud cyclone.

In 2 villages, Vepada and Singavaram Tribal people of Vijayanagaram are sending their sincere thanks to you for helping 200 families with 5 Kgs of Rice, 2 Kgs of Dall, 1 Lt of cooking oil and 100 saries for 100 poor women in the villages.
The Hudhud cyclone left bad memories in lives of these people.
Till today, there is electricity, 1 small candle is costing Rs: 12/- (normally Rs: 1/-) and it gives lighting just for 15 minutes. Each mosquito coil is costing Rs: 15/- (normally Rs: 4/-).

When the people are receiving help from our ministry, we saw the tears of joy and happiness among these tribal people. Almost, 90% people are illiterate. They have to go 55km to reach a hospital. In the night time, it’s impossible to travel, because Cobras and other poisoned big snakes are passing by the road.

Once again, we are soo much thankful to your immediate response to help the Hudhud Cyclone victims. We ask God to bless you and your family members.
