Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth. -Jeremiah 15:19
oor Jeremiah! Yet why do we say so? The weeping prophet was one of the choicest servants of God and honored by Him above many. He was hated for speaking the truth. The word which was so sweet to him was bitter to his hearers, yet he was accepted of his Lord. He was commanded to abide in his faithfulness, and then the Lord would continue to speak through him. He was to deal boldly and truthfully with men and perform the Lord’s winnowing work upon the professors of his day, and then the Lord gave him this word: “Thou shalt be as my mouth.”
What an honor! Should not every preacher…

God has His watchmen to help the undiscerning (which is all of us in some some area or other) and we can seem like the light is being shone in our brothers’ eyes or that we are bullies when there is something that we know they are doing against God’s Word but we desire to help them to see it. If they refuse the correction then we are not viewed as loving though we really are. Yet, this is still a good word for watchmen to heed, that we are pointing the light to God’s Word and if they get upset leave it with God, rather than turning the light on them to blind them..
When I was a teen or in my early twenties, I’m not really certain exactly when this event occurred. One thin I am sure of, it was late at night.
I was driving along on a road that was usually deserted at the time I was on it heading toward home. In fact, home was just a few more twists and turns down the road.
I was probably driving way too fast. It seems that most of my driving in those days was way too fast.
But as I was driving along this narrow, dark, familiar road, I approached another vehicle. The dim red tail lights began to come more and more into focus and soon I could see they were attached to a beat up white van.
I was deciding whether or not to pass the van and the strangest thing happened.
The rear doors on the van flew…

Hope this helps those in similar circumstances…
Matthew 10:37-39 He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
I am a born again Christian and my son was planning to be married in the Mormon Church of the Latter Days Saints. (Because of their extensive deviation from accurate biblical teaching, the Church of the Latter Day Saints falls into the category of a cult.)
The dilemma I faced … should I attend the wedding?
What do I do?
My son first heard the Gospel years ago when he was in his teens. He pretty much wasn’t interested. I, on the other…

Today’s Update: Jesus Christ’s Life to Be Told in New Television Series
The life of Jesus Christ has inspired a great many artists over the years and continues to do so to this day.
His story has been the inspiration for films such asMel Gibson’s monumental hit “The Passion of the Christ”…series “The Bible” from producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey.
Now Christ’s life is yet again the subject of a new project.
“Jesus: His Life,” a miniseries, will begin airing on the History Channel on March 25. One big selling point for the eight-part series is likely that it involves the thoughts and views of many faith leaders and respected scholars.

Warn the brethren about the practice of paganism in their worship of God but use wisdom in when to stop trying to reason with them. They have been told and that is all we are to do and after, when there is no repentance nor desire to search the matter out, leave it in God’s hands.
Pray for them but, remember, God may say to us like He did to Jeremiah, pray no longer for them.
