You got it. You will not hear of this case or cases. These are the "Suffering and Smiling" scenarios (credited to legendary, late Fela of Africa.) It is interesting - I wonder! Thank you Richard.

Dear Christians, welcome back to the Bach Cantatas for the 8th Sunday after Trinity.

The 2nd Cantata for today is Wo Gott der Herr nicht bei uns haelt/Where God, the LORD, dwells not with us, BWV 178.  It is totally taken from the 1524 hymn of the same title, by Justus Jonas, which has not been published in any hymnals since the mid-1920s.

To summarize this work: lies cannot stand where the truth is told and exposed.  God sits on His throne in Heaven, exposing every evil and hypocrisy, and condemning it to hell.  Yet God embraces warmly everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior without condition.

We are all in a sinful state.  Thanks be to God through the blood of Jesus Christ, we are now also in a state of God's grace!  Yet just as wild surf tosses a ship, so evil tosses those who hate God about with every wind of doctrine and damnation.  We stand on the rock solid Word of God.  Because of this, the enemy of our souls is out for our blood.

God established not only the heavens and the earth, but the truth and the light as well.  Let us be guided by God's truth and light as we read the English translation of this work at http://www.emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv178.htm#pab1_7 

Here is today's Gospel reading as well, taken from Matthew 7: 15 - 23, KJV:

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Here are Dr. Melvin Unger's Scripture cross-references for this fine work:

Finally, Christians, on this 8th Sunday after Trinity, 

We have Bach's 3rd Cantata for this day, "Es ist dir gesagt, Mensch, was gut ist/It is told you, Man, what is good" BWV 45.  Ton Koopman presents this sparkling performance on period instruments here.

Though the Cantata begins with Micah 6:8 (ESV), "8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?",  the 4th Movement is a quote from today's Gospel lesson, Matthew 7: 15 - 23.

These words of Jesus Christ speak volumes concerning the teachings against hypocrisy expounded today, yet these days, we have Jezebel in the pulpit dressed in ecclesiastical garb.  God will expose her evil, her hypocrisy, and her denial of Christ as Lord and Savior.  To those preachers who read poetry rather than the Word of God during Sunday Service, God is warning you now to get right, or get lost.  They use the Name of God in vain who use it to deceive people into thinking they are righteous.  

If a man or woman acknowledges God, God and His Word will burn in their hearts forever.  Grant that it be so with us.

The 7th movement is the 2nd verse of Johann Heermann's 1630 hymn, "O Gott, du frommer Gott," whose tune we now sing as "What Is the World To Me?"  Grant that God works His will in us, and that we do as He commands, to steer clear of evil speech and hypocrisy and to steer toward the Gate of Heaven through the Cross of Jesus Christ, AMEN!!

As we listen to this work, please read the English translation at http://www.emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv045.htm#pab1_7

Here are Dr. Melvin Unger's Scripture Cross-references for this Cantata:

1.  Mt. 7: 16 - 19 & 21, Mic. 6: 6 - 8, James 1: 22

2.  Mic. 6: 8, Is. 28: 17, Lk. 11: 28, 1 Jn. 2: 4 - 5, Ps. 119: 1 - 6, Ps. 5: 8, Heb. 12: 13, Ps. 119: 105, Deut. 10: 12 - 13, Deut. 5: 33, 1 Sam. 15: 22, Jn. 15: 14.

3.  Rom. 2: 6 - 8, 2 Cor. 5: 10, Lk. 12: 42 - 47, Mt. 13: 41 - 42, Rom. 8: 13.

May God bless and keep you.  Lord willing, I will present more Bach Cantatas next Sunday.

Good morning and welcome to the 8th Sunday after Trinity.

Today, Johann S. Bach has 3 fine Sacred Cantatas running according to the Scriptures as listed in the Lutheran Evangelical pericope of his day.  First of these is Erforsche mich, Gott, und erfahre mein Herz/Search me, God, and determine my heart, BWV 136.

The Cantata begins with Psalm 139:23, (ESV) "23 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! "

The curse of sin and death permeates everyone.  God exposes hypocrites and judges them.  Whomever is purified by Jesus Christ's shed blood on the cross stands justified before God, though sin still ails him.  We were stained with sin by the first Adam, and we are cleansed from sin by the second Adam, Jesus Christ.

For that, we read today's Epistle lesson from Romans 8: 12 - 17 (KJV).

12 Therefore, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh. 13 For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. 15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: 17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. 

We are FREE from sin in Christ Jesus!  Let us Christians walk and live in that freedom.  As we listen to this cantata and learn to walk in Christian freedom, let us read the English translation at http://www.emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv136.htm#pab1_7

The 6th Movement is the 9th Verse of Johann Heermann's 1630 hymn, "Wo soll ich fliehen hin," which is fairly familiar to most older Lutherans.

Finally, Christians, on this 8th Sunday after Trinity, 

We have Bach's 3rd Cantata for this day, "Es ist dir gesagt, Mensch, was gut ist/It is told you, Man, what is good" BWV 45.  Ton Koopman presents this sparkling performance on period instruments here.

Though the Cantata begins with Micah 6:8 (ESV), "8 He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?",  the 4th Movement is a quote from today's Gospel lesson, Matthew 7: 15 - 23.

These words of Jesus Christ speak volumes concerning the teachings against hypocrisy expounded today, yet these days, we have Jezebel in the pulpit dressed in ecclesiastical garb.  God will expose her evil, her hypocrisy, and her denial of Christ as Lord and Savior.  To those preachers who read poetry rather than the Word of God during Sunday Service, God is warning you now to get right, or get lost.  They use the Name of God in vain who use it to deceive people into thinking they are righteous.  

If a man or woman acknowledges God, God and His Word will burn in their hearts forever.  Grant that it be so with us.

The 7th movement is the 2nd verse of Johann Heermann's 1630 hymn, "O Gott, du frommer Gott," whose tune we now sing as "What Is the World To Me?"  Grant that God works His will in us, and that we do as He commands, to steer clear of evil speech and hypocrisy and to steer toward the Gate of Heaven through the Cross of Jesus Christ, AMEN!!

As we listen to this work, please read the English translation at http://www.emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv045.htm#pab1_7

Here are Dr. Melvin Unger's Scripture Cross-references for this Cantata:

1.  Mt. 7: 16 - 19 & 21, Mic. 6: 6 - 8, James 1: 22

2.  Mic. 6: 8, Is. 28: 17, Lk. 11: 28, 1 Jn. 2: 4 - 5, Ps. 119: 1 - 6, Ps. 5: 8, Heb. 12: 13, Ps. 119: 105, Deut. 10: 12 - 13, Deut. 5: 33, 1 Sam. 15: 22, Jn. 15: 14.

3.  Rom. 2: 6 - 8, 2 Cor. 5: 10, Lk. 12: 42 - 47, Mt. 13: 41 - 42, Rom. 8: 13.

4.  Mt. 7: 21 - 27, Rom. 2: 13, James 1: 22, Lk. 6: 46.

5.  Mt. 10: 32 - 33, 2 Tim. 2: 11 - 12, Rom. 10: 9 - 10, Mt. 7: 15 - 16 & 19 & 23, 2 Tim. 2: 19, Mt. 13: 41 - 42.

6.  Lk. 19: 22, Mt. 7: 16, Lk. 6: 43 - 45, Mt. 12: 33 - 37, Lk. 6: 46, James 4: 17, Lk. 12: 47, Phil. 1: 6, Phil. 2: 13, 1 Thess. 4: 3, Ps. 138: 8

7.  Mt. 7: 21, James 1: 22 - 25, Heb. 6: 11 - 12, Rom. 12: 6 - 8, Phil. 2: 13, Mt. 21: 28 - 29, Ps. 40: 8, Neh. 1: 11, Ps. 90: 17. (Unger, pp. 160 - 163)

May God bless and keep you.  Lord willing, I will present more Bach Cantatas next Sunday.

Dear Christians, welcome back to the Bach Cantatas for the 8th Sunday after Trinity.

The 2nd Cantata for today is Wo Gott der Herr nicht bei uns haelt/Where God, the LORD, dwells not with us, BWV 178.  It is totally taken from the 1524 hymn of the same title, by Justus Jonas, which has not been published in any hymnals since the mid-1920s.

To summarize this work: lies cannot stand where the truth is told and exposed.  God sits on His throne in Heaven, exposing every evil and hypocrisy, and condemning it to hell.  Yet God embraces warmly everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior without condition.

We are all in a sinful state.  Thanks be to God through the blood of Jesus Christ, we are now also in a state of God's grace!  Yet just as wild surf tosses a ship, so evil tosses those who hate God about with every wind of doctrine and damnation.  We stand on the rock solid Word of God.  Because of this, the enemy of our souls is out for our blood.

God established not only the heavens and the earth, but the truth and the light as well.  Let us be guided by God's truth and light as we read the English translation of this work at http://www.emmanuelmusic.org/notes_translations/translations_cantata/t_bwv178.htm#pab1_7 

Here is today's Gospel reading as well, taken from Matthew 7: 15 - 23, KJV:

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

Here are Dr. Melvin Unger's Scripture cross-references for this fine work:

1.  Ps. 124: 1 - 8, Ps. 74: 22 - 23 (Luther: "Sache" for "cause"), Lam. 3: 58 (Luther: "fuehre du die Sache meiner Seele" for "Thou hast taken up my cause."), Ps. 56: 1 - 4, Ps. 94: 17, Ps. 46: 7 & 11 (Luther: "Schutz" for "refuge").

2.  Ps. 31: 13, Ps. 118: 6 - 7, Ps. 27: 1 & 3, Ps. 54: 4 (Luther: "Gott steht mir bei" for "God is my helper"), Ps. 140: 5 (Luther: "Stricke" for "trap"), Ps. 124: 7 - 8, Ps. 11: 4 - 5, Heb. 13: 5 - 6 (Luther: "nicht verlassen nach versaeumen" for "not fail you nor forsake you"), Job 5: 12 - 13 (Luther: "Anschlaege" for "devices," "Listigen" for "crafty," and "Listigkeit" for "Craftiness," and "... und stuertzt der Verkehrten Rat" for "and the schemes of the wily are brought to a quick end."), Ps. 64: 1 - 6, Ps. 27: 2, 2 Pet. 2: 9, Jn. 10: 3 - 4, Mt. 2: 7 - 9 & 12 - 15, Ex. 14: 10 & 13 - 16 & 22, Ps. 10: 14.

3.  Ps. 154: 2 - 5, Mt. 8: 23 - 25, Ps. 69: 1 - 2 & 15, Ps. 144: 7, Mt. 7: 15, Phil. 3: 18, Jn. 8: 44.

6.  Mk. 4: 38 - 39, Ps. 46: 10, Phil. 4: 6 - 7, James 1: 2 - 4, Jn. 12: 24 - 25, Mk. 8: 34, 1 Pet. 1: 3 & 6.

7.  Ps. 138: 7, Ps. 124: 6 - 7, Lam. 3: 58 & 60, Ps. 64: 5, Ps. 83: 3, Mk. 5: 36, Heb. 10: 23, Mk. 9: 24, Jn. 20: 29, Rom. 8: 24 - 25, Ps. 124: 8, Ps. 102: 25, Is. 9: 2, 2 Cor. 4: 6, Rom. 15: 13, 2 Thess. 3: 5, 1 Cor. 15: 58, Mt. 10: 22, Jn. 16: 33, Jn. 15: 18 - 19. (Unger, pp. 616 - 622)

Onward and upward to the final J. S. Bach Cantata for today.
