Today's Cherished Nugget

  Friday September th, 2015, Today's cherished nugget from guest blogger, Pastor Bill.
Why does everyone think he is an exception to the rules? The truth is we are exceptions to the rules. Maybe not exactly as we envision, but the writer of Psalms 139:14 is aware and phrases it this way: “I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”
We are uniquely made for a special purpose, and that is to praise and bring honor to God, our Creator. The writer of I Peter 2:9 reminds us of that with these words: “But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
Many will not live up to their calling. Will we be the exception to that rule?
God, thank You for days and years you give us to praise You. Amen.

“His thoughts were slow; His words were few and never formed to glisten. But he was a joy to all his friends— You should have heard him listen” (Anonymous).
The wise writer of Proverbs 1:5 shares this with us: “The wise man also may hear and increase in learning.”
In other words, when we listen, we receive more than knowledge; we gain friends.
God, let us listen to You and gain the wisdom of Your words.  Amen.

Beware the coming Cold

All the while we have the "hype" about a man induced global warming, the reality is the opposite. Our local star ... the sun ... is not cooperating with the attempts to convince us that climate change is humanities fault, specifically the industrial nations fault through the use of energy.

According to NASA, the sunspot cycle we are now passing through – Sunspot Cycle 24 – is the smallest such cycle since Cycle 14, which ended back in 1906.
That is incorrect, says reader J. H. Walker.
“The problem with NASA’s sunspot count is that these are inflated by every blemish and spot fragment due to the optics they use,” says Walker.
If you use the Landscheidt sunspot-counting method, which counts only those spots that can be seen by 40MM optics, you realize that the current count is less than Solar Cycle 5. That solar cycle began in May 1798 and ended in December 1810.
It also corresponded with the Dalton Minimum.
The Dalton Minimum, a period of low solar activity named after English meteorologist John Dalton, lasted from about 1790 to 1830, says Wikipedia....

Yahweh Day 127

Day 127, Yahweh: His Name Cometh #5
27 Look, Yahweh comes from far away, His anger burning and heavy with smoke. His lips are full of fury, and His tongue is like a consuming fire. 28 His breath is like an overflowing torrent that rises to the neck. [He comes] to sift the nations in a sieve of destruction and to put a bridle on the jaws of the peoples to lead [them] astray. 29 Your singing will be like that on the night of a holy festival, And [your] heart will rejoice like one who walks [to the music] of a flute, going up to the mountain of the Lord, to the Rock of Israel. 30 And the Lord will make the splendor of His voice heard and reveal His arm striking in angry wrath and a flame of consuming fire, in driving rain, a torrent, and hailstones.....

Isaiah 30:27-30 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

The first cry ... the first use of the "Hallelujah" in the entire Bible occurs in Psalm 104.

"I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God while I live. 34 May my meditation be pleasing to Him; I will rejoice in the Lord. 35 May sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more. My soul, praise the Lord! Hallelujah!"

Psalm 104:33-35 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)

Notice that the first time Hallelujah is used in scripture it is a cry of praise as the people of God witness the judgment of God against the wicked that have tormented God's people.

Think about this today ... God's people offering up the "Hallelujah" at witnessing the judgment of God.

Tomorrow we will see the first use of the "Hallelujah" in the New Testament.

It's in The Name.

Intercessory Prayer:  Oh Father!  We long for the day that You will erase the presence of evil and hatred from Your creation … for Your Name’s sake!  In Jesus Name.  Amen.

I was intrigued by one of those shows on the Discovery Channel when they were explaining the process of making steel. The metal was heated "white" hot and poured into troughs for cooling.
Though this was several years ago, I still remember a statement of the commentator: “As soon as the ore is removed from the heat, it cools by several hundred degrees per minute.”  Often that picture comes to mind when I see people removing themselves from the fellowship of God’s people and His church.
The writer of Hebrews reminds us: “Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching” (10:25). 
Isn’t it interesting how the symptoms most often diagnose the ailment? 
God, I love You and want to radiate Your love. Keep me near Your refining fire that I might be able to encourage others daily and to be useful to You. Amen.
