I will not make a full end of thee

Jeremiah 46:28
Fear thou not, O Jacob my servant, saith the LORD: for I [am] with thee; for I will make a full end of all the nations whither I have driven thee: but I will not make a full end of thee, but correct thee in measure; yet will I not leave thee wholly unpunished.


He that scattered Israel will gather him

Jeremiah 31:10,11
Hear the word of the LORD, O ye nations, and declare [it] in the isles afar off, and say, He that scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd [doth] his flock. For the LORD hath redeemed Jacob, and ransomed him from the hand of [him that was] stronger than he.


Behold, thy salvation cometh

Isaiah 62:11,12
Behold, the LORD hath proclaimed unto the end of the world, Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh; behold, his reward [is] with him, and his work before him. And they shall call them, The holy people, The redeemed of the LORD: and thou shalt be called, Sought out, A city not forsaken.

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10:17

The LORD hath redeemed his servant Jacob.

Isaiah 48:20b-22
The LORD hath redeemed his servant Jacob. And they thirsted not [when] he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out. [There is] no peace, saith the LORD, unto the wicked.


Hate Covetousness

Exodus 18:21
Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place [such] over them, [to be] rulers of thousands, [and] rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens...

Covetousness is like greed, envy, and lust. It means wanting a thing that somebody else has.

"Men of truth, hating covetousness..." Do you hate covetousness? You should. "He that hateth covetousness..."

Proverbs 28:16
The prince that wanteth understanding [is] also a great oppressor: [but] he that hateth covetousness shall prolong [his] days.


Eagles' Wings

Exodus 19:4-6a
Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and [how] I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself. Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth [is] mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation.


"And Friends"

This page just used to say "Page By Isaac4given," but now it says, "Page By isAAc4given And Friends." There are now posts and comments from other people.

A week b4 ("before",) yesterday, Muteki commented on "My Heart is Fixed," and Muteki posted "So you want... Proof??" just about 3 days ago. That was nice because he usually just posts in Japanese. Well, except for, like, that one time.

If you ever have any thoughts about anything you see on this site, please don't be too shy to leave your comments :-)


So you want... Proof??

Someone said the other day that they don't believe anything that hasn't been proven.

How silly. If you think about it, nothing has been proven. Even what I see with my eyes I could have imagined. You could even be imagining up the room you're in, the computer in front of you, my existence. In order to believe anything at all (and some don't), you have to be willing to accept a certain relative level of proof.

Many people, for example, believe only what they have seen with their eyes. This is a trade-off; if you choose not to accept commonly accepted information, others could think of you as uneducated. So most choose to also believe what others, whom they trust, have seen. Most people believe what scientists say, because scientists are just reporting on what they have seen with their own eyes in experiments in the laboratory.

Often, religious people cite the story of 'doubting Thomas.' Thomas was told that Jesus Christ had just risen from the dead, but he said that he wouldn't believe it unless he could touch the wounds in Jesus hands and side. Jesus later appeared and invited Thomas to do just that. Thomas, upon seeing Jesus, didn't even need the physical contact, and called Jesus "my Lord and my God." That's when Jesus uttered the famous words, "Because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed," which is to say: "You believe because you have seen me; blessed be those who have not seen and believe anyway."

Most religious people site this story verbatim as an answer for people who demand proof. So you've probably heard it before. But it ignores the fact that there is proof.

We are the generation of believers. Most of us (including me, of course) have not seen Jesus Christ with our own eyes, but we believe the reports of those who say they have. Jesus Christ was seen by more than 5,000 people after his death. What further proof do you need?? You believe the reports of scientists who have seen the results of their experiments in the laboratory. Believe the reports of those who saw Jesus before, during, and after His death. You believe the reports of newspaper journalists about what they have seen in the field. Believe reports of Christians about the things that Jesus Christ has done for them.

Well, aren't there high-brow philosophers, even famous scientists, who don't believe that anything is certain? Is anything really certain at all? But isn't that quite a long way to go to avoid admitting that Jesus Christ was who He claimed to be? We're scared to death to admit it because if we do, then we're also admitting that we deserve to go to Hell. And we stop there! Why? Don't you know that isn't the whole story? Don't you know that you can't solve a problem by denying its existence? Jesus didn't come to condemn us all to Hell, He came to save us from it! Believing in the sacrifice He made isn't going to condemn you, it's going to save you! When Jesus died on the cross, He took your sin to hell with Him! And when He rose up from the grave, He secured for you eternal life! Your belief will not condemn you, your unbelief will condemn you. Give up your pride and throw yourself on the mercy of a God who sacrificed His life to pay your ransom from death.

Children Are a Gift From the Lord

Genesis 33:5

And he lifted up his eyes, and saw the women and the children; and said, Who [are] those with thee? And he said, The children which God hath graciously given thy servant.
Those people with you- who are they? Jacob answered Esau that God had graciously given those children to him.

1 Chronicles 25:5

All these [were] the sons of Heman the king's seer in the words of God, to lift up the horn. And God gave to Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.
God says He gave 14 sons and 3 daughters to Heman!

1 Chronicles 28:5

And of all my sons, (for the LORD hath given me many sons,) he hath chosen Solomon my son to sit upon the throne of the kingdom of the LORD over Israel.
The LORD had given David many sons.

Children are a gift from the Lord.
