He hath cast out thine enemy. (Zephaniah 3:15)What a casting out was that! Satan has lost his throne in our nature even as he lost his seat in heaven. Our Lord Jesus has destroyed the enemy's reigning power over us. He may worry us, but he cannot claim us as his own. His bonds are no longer upon our spirits: the Son has made us free, and we are free indeed.Still is the archenemy the accuser of the brethren; but even from this position our Lord has driven him. Our Advocate silences our accuser. The Lord rebukes our enemies and pleads the causes of our soul, so that no harm comes of all the devil's revilings.As a tempter, the evil spirit still assails us and insinuates himself into our minds; but thence also is he cast out as to his former preeminence. He wriggles about like a serpent, but he cannot rule like a sovereign. He hurls in blasphemous thoughts when he has opportunity; but what a relief it is when he is told to be quiet and is made to slink off like a whipped cur! Lord, do thi…

Amanda Shannon replied to Dr. Derek P. Blake's discussion Meteor Showers Coming Up in Looking Up - Observing God's Glory
"I used to make wishes on falling stars, or what I thought at the time were falling stars. To me they seemed harmless. Still do.

What I'm referring to is the fear that some have of the "end of days" and Judgment Day. Many have pictured in their minds, after piecing together certain scriptures, that the day will come when it will be the final dissolution of the present world, and the stars will fall, such as Mark 13:25 and Rev 6:13.

I'm sure those in times past (or some even today) who were not familiar with the difference between a falling star and a meteor have likely panicked. Some take such things as "signs of the end time."

I was just reading that there's actually a phobia of meteors, or meteorophobia. I'm sure not many suffer from it, considering that not many injuries or much damage has been caused by meteors, but perhaps the real roots of this fear could be associated with fear of God or fear of Judgment Day, which does seem to be a very real fear for quite a few people. Fe…"

Dr. Derek P. Blake replied to Dr. Derek P. Blake's discussion Meteor Showers Coming Up in Looking Up - Observing God's Glory
"Well then we should be scared all the time as there are eight major meteor showers and many minor showers each year.  In fact we get an almost constant stream of meteors colliding with Earth's atmosphere, there is a chance that there could be at least one every day.  The ones we need be concerned about are asteroid impacts, which I believe is what John the Evangelist is seeing in Revelation 6.
It may be that God uses asteroids for His purpose, remember He holds the universe in equilibrium and can therefore control its bodies.  There is some evidence that God used asteroid impacts either at the beginning or during the Flood to start a chain reaction that split up the single super continent, Pangaea.  There is a geological marker we used to call the KT Boundary (now called the K/Pg boundary) that can be found over 90% of the Earth's land-mass.  This thin layer contains a normal but thick (30 cm) clay boundary layer that consists mainly of glass spherules, Beloc tektites that apparently…"

"So amazing. Revelation 6:13 speaks of stars falling from heaven. I think some have had a good scare during a meteor shower."

Perhaps you're aware already of this truth, but today I want to share something that I learned some years ago, during my career of providing home care services to the clients of home health agencies and hospice.By no means have I mastered it quite yet, but, oh, how I long to do so! How I wish I could! Oh, how I long to be a blessing to others, but, sadly, I know I fail in so many ways.There are three ways to communicate spiritual truth, and the gift of discernment is needed in order to know which way we are being called to minister to any individual in any given circumstance, as we gently and lovingly reach out to our brothers and sisters in Christ.Admonition. Comfort. Encouragement.Admonition is given only after praying and asking God for wisdom. It is a word of instruction and exhortation given mostly to those who are going astray in doctrine or who are living in disobedience. In other words, if someone is on a wrong path, then we ought to care enough to reach out to the person and…

Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. (1 Peter 5:6)This is tantamount to a promise: if we will bow down, the Lord will lift us up. Humility leads to honor; submission is the way to exaltation. That same hand of God which presses us down is waiting to raise us up when we are prepared to bear the blessing. We stoop to conquer. Many cringe before men and yet miss the patronage they crave; but he that humbles himself under the hand of God shall not fail to be enriched, uplifted, sustained, and comforted by the ever-gracious One. It is a habit of Jehovah to cast down the proud and lift up the lowly.Yet there is a time for the Lord's working. We ought now to humble ourselves, even at this present moment; and we are bound to keep on doing so whether the Lord lays His afflicting hand upon us or not. When the Lord smites, it is our special duty to accept the chastisement with profound submission. But as for the Lord's exaltation of us, tha…
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. -John 13:34
Dr. Derek P. Blake posted a photo in Christian Artists & Crafters
This church is in a village by the name of Vasilica (or Bascilica is the Greek pronunciation), it is unusual in that the building is painted a vivid blue, most churches are painted white.  In the middle distance is the Gulf of Kalloni  and on the other shore a village called Parakila (which we used to call 'Pepsicola').
I painted a lot of churches whilst we were in Greece, or at least included one, however small a detail, simply because you cannot sell a painting to any one on the island unless it has a church in it.  There are thousands of churches of all sizes, from large cathedrals down to chapels-on-sticks at the roadside.  Almost every church holds enormous treasures, with gold chalices and crosses, even giant Bibles with gold covers.  The Greek Orthodox Church could, if it so wanted, wipe our the country's debt at a stroke and still be the richest organisation in Greece, it is the largest real estate owner and has the biggest bank balance in Greece.
  • Dr. Derek P. Blake That's because they spend more than enough on them, when their people are starving.  The rich people build churches and chapels because they believe that this is their ticket into heaven, the more churches you build the more certain you are to get salvation.  The people look upon the upkeep of the church in the same way.

Do you realise that today is the 10,000th day of the internet? Yes ten-thousand days ago today the public access internet was switched on, much to the delight of the three people who had a dial-up connection and the relief of the four-thousand hackers who were already hacking the US military net.
Where would we be without the internet, doesn't it feel like it's always been with us? All that research we do would have been real hard work (I remember those days well) and who would have thought that we could not only talk to, but see, people all around the planet in real time. The postal services have been re-named, 'snail-mail' because of almost instant messaging, and the written English has been adulterated, all because of the internet that we cannot do without.
Happy 10k day 'WWW'
