From Gary.... That which is growing - grows!!!


Our "Preacher-in-training" (Alan) started a new series of lessons on the book of Revelation Sunday evening.  I have studied Revelation before, but this brother makes it "come alive" with his computerized power-point presentations.  The picture above reminded of Alan's reference to one of the early church father's who said: "The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church".  How could anything possibly grow in such a hostile environment?  Obviously, it can!!!  The same holds true for the church and somehow this passage from Revelation seemed to fit...

Revelation, Chapter 2
  8  “To the angel of the assembly in Smyrna write: 

“The first and the last, who was dead, and has come to life says these things: 

  9  “I know your works, oppression, and your poverty (but you are rich), and the blasphemy of those who say they are Jews, and they are not, but are a synagogue of Satan.   10  Don’t be afraid of the things which you are about to suffer. Behold, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested; and you will have oppression for ten days. Be faithful to death, and I will give you the crown of life.   11  He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the assemblies. He who overcomes won’t be harmed by the second death.

Unless you have been in a coma of late, you must have noticed that there is a war going on in the United States Of America.  Our government is assuming more and more power and our liberties seem to be vanishing on almost a daily basis.  I pray for this country on a regular basis and encourage you to do the same.  Life is very soon going to become difficult for those that call themselves Christians in this country.  Our current king is Muslim and has allied himself with cronies who share the same worship of Allah, so we can expect problems shortly.  Think I am wrong?  You have the right to disagree (for now at least) !!!  The good news is that nothing on or above this Earth has more power than God.  In our lifetimes, we may actually have choices like those Smyrna faced; it is entirely possible.  However, I take comfort in the FACT that our reward for perseverance will be a crown of life (verse 10 above).  If you are rooted and grounded on the firm ground of Jesus, it doesn't matter how hot things may get for you- you will overcome (one way or another).

The Composite Bible
The World English Bible
Darby's Translation
Young's Literal Translation

The Composite Bible is a effort to understand the Bible by considering it from different perspectives and different levels of literalcy. First, read the World English Bible (the least literal-black text) for comprehension of the text. Next, read both the World English Bible with the Darby Translation (more literal-blue text)to make comparisons and lastly, read all three versions (Young's is the most literal translation- red text) at one time to obtain an overview of the text. Doing this will make you think about what the Scriptures are actually saying and avoid reading in a superficial manner.

Gal 5:1 Stand firm therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and don't be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
Gal 5:2 Behold, I, Paul, tell you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will profit you nothing.
Gal 5:3 Yes, I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is a debtor to do the whole law.
Gal 5:4 You are alienated from Christ, you who desire to be justified by the law. You have fallen away from grace.
Gal 5:5 For we, through the Spirit, by faith wait for the hope of righteousness.
Gal 5:6 For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision amounts to anything, nor uncircumcision, but faith working through love.
Gal 5:7 You were running well! Who interfered with you that you should not obey the truth?
Gal 5:8 This persuasion is not from him who calls you.
Gal 5:9 A little yeast grows through the whole lump.
Gal 5:10 I have confidence toward you in the Lord that you will think no other way. But he who troubles you will bear his judgment, whoever he is.
Gal 5:11 But I, brothers, if I still preach circumcision, why am I still persecuted? Then the stumbling block of the cross has been removed.
Gal 5:12 I wish that those who disturb you would cut themselves off.
Gal 5:13 For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don't use your freedom for gain to the flesh, but through love be servants to one another.
Gal 5:14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in this: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."
Gal 5:15 But if you bite and devour one another, be careful that you don't consume one another.

Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, that you may not do the things that you desire.
Gal 5:18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
Gal 5:19 Now the works of the flesh are obvious, which are: adultery, sexual immorality, uncleanness, lustfulness,
Gal 5:20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, strife, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, divisions, heresies,
Gal 5:21 envyings, murders, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these; of which I forewarn you, even as I also forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the Kingdom of God.
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Gal 5:24 Those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.
Gal 5:25 If we live by the Spirit, let's also walk by the Spirit.
Gal 5:26 Let's not become conceited, provoking one another, and envying one another.
