#biblestudytools #christmascarols

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.

Free advice: In these days of troubles and fears, we mustn’t travel alone, we must consider the Lord our God; and for safety’s sake, we must use His words for guidance day and night.

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.

The creator of the classic film The Exorcist died last week.

I knew there was a story behind that story so I started researching and guess what I found?

"Something" (powerful) always happens when you trust and rely on Jesus...because "nothing" is impossible (or even an option) with God! ~

**THE MIND OF JESUS**

(John MacDuff)


"Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus" Philippians 2:5

"Arm yourselves likewise with the same mind" 1 Peter 4:1

THE MIND OF JESUS! What a study is this! To attain a dim reflection of it, is the ambition of angel — higher they cannot soar.

"To be conformed to the image of His Son!" — this is the design of God in the predestination of His people from all eternity.

"We shall be like Him!" — this is the Bible picture of heaven!

It is impossible on earth to associate with a fellow-being without getting in some degree assimilated to him. Just so, the more we study "the Mind of Christ," the more we are in His company — holding converse with Him as our best and dearest friend — catching up His holy looks and holy deeds — the more shall we be "transformed into the same image."

"Consider," says the Great Apostle (literally 'gaze on') "Christ Jesus" (Hebrews 3:1.) Study feature by feature, lineament by lineament — of that Peerless Exemplar. "Gaze" on the Sun of Righteousness, until, like gazing long on the natural sun, you carry away with you, on your spiritual vision, dazzling images of His brightness and glory! Though He is the Archetype of all goodness — remember He is no shadowy model — though the Infinite Jehovah — He was "the Man Christ Jesus."

We must never, indeed, forget that it is not the mind, but the work of Emmanuel which lies at the foundation of a sinner's hope. He must be known as a Savior, before He is studied as an Example. His doing and dying is the center jewel — of which all the virtues of His holy life are merely the setting. But neither must we overlook the Scripture obligation to walk in His footsteps and imbibe His Spirit, for "if any man has not the Spirit of Christ — he is none of His!"

Oh, that each individual Christian were more Savior-like! that, in the manifestation of a holy character and heavenly demeanor, it might be said in some feeble measure of the faint and imperfect reflection — "Such was Jesus!"

How far short we are of such a criterion — our mournful experience can testify. But it is at least comforting to know that there is a day coming, when, in the full vision and fruition of the Glorious Original, the exhortation of our motto-verse will be needed no more; when we shall be able to say, in the words of an inspired apostle — "We have the MIND OF CHRIST!"

Whilst the week progresses, if you are this person, feeling hopeless, and believing that there is no hope for you, rethink, and call out to Jesus for help quickly. ‘God’s willing’ you may be blessed, by an unexpected person with good support; just be mindful of the Lord’s faithfulness.

REMEMBER THE STORY FLOW
Keep your mind on the story flow in Ezekiel 3. Remember, the book of Ezekiel has a story flow. So the context is a key to understanding this book.
God began our work with the little book. It showed God's Church that we were in the midst of a great rebellion. God's people were confused, and the little book showed them what was happening and what God was doing.
First we took the message to God's lukewarm Laodiceans for seven years. The very elect saw that God was using us to do a mighty work.
After that, God had us put the emphasis of our message on the Watchman work to the whole world we had to watch and warn.
When the Watchman work is finished, we go to a place of safety the story flow or context of Ezekiel 5:3 proves that scenario.
God's Work today is going to save lives, physically and spiritually. God is going to save 50 percent of the rebellious Laodiceans when they repent during the Great Tribulation. The other 50 percent will die eternally!
Would the 50 percent who repent have done so without our warning message revolving around the little book? Surely most of them would not have known why and what to repent of without that message!
The great multitude repent in the Great Tribulation, and God saves them physically. Most of them will respond to our message, either directly or indirectly.
How many more will be impacted by our message today, even up to the Second Coming of Christ?
Also, we must not forget we save our own lives physically and spiritually by doing God's Work today.
God is using us to do His magnificent, lifesaving Work. We haven't finished that yet, but we are beginning to look more to the imminent and wonderful world Tomorrow. What happens after the Watchman Work?
And the hand of the LORD was there upon me: and he said unto me, Arise, GO FORTH INTO THE PLAIN, AND I WILL THERE TALK WITH THEE. Then I arose, and went forth into the Plain: and, behold, the glory of the Lord stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar: and I fell on my face Ezekiel 3:22-23. If you look at the context, the Watchman work ends and God's Church goes to a place of safety. I speculate that's what these verses are about.
Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and spake with me, and said unto me, God, shut thyself within thine house. But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them: And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reproved: for they are a rebellious house verses 24-26. Again, we must look at the context. The timing of the story flow indicates that this is the famine of the word during the Great Tribulation, mentioned in Amos 8:11.
But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forebear: for they are a rebellious house Ezekiel 3:27.

**. *THE NIGHT WATCHES*. *

(John MacDuff)

"I remember You upon my bed — and meditate on You in the night watches." — Psalm 63:6

"My soul waits for the Lord more than those who watch for the morning." — Psalm 130:6

"Yet the Lord will command His loving-kindness in the day time, and in the night His song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life." — Psalm 42:8



🙏THE GLORY OF GOD🙏

"Before the mountains were born or You brought forth the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, you are God!" — Psalm 90:2

O My Soul! Seek to fill yourself with thoughts of the Almighty. Lose yourself in the impenetrable tracts of His Glory!

"Can you by searching find out God?" Can the insect fathom the ocean, or the worm scale the skies? Can the finite comprehend the Infinite? Can the mortal grasp Immortality? We can do no more than stand on the brink of the shoreless sea, and cry, "Oh the depth!"

"From everlasting!" — shrouded in the great and amazing mystery of eternity! Before one star revolved in its sphere — before one angel moved his wing — God was! His own infinite presence filling all space. All time, to Him, is but as the heaving of a breath — the beat of a pulse — the twinkling of an eye!

The Eternity of bliss, which is the noblest heritage of the creature, is in its nature progressive. It admits of advance in degrees of happiness and glory. Not so the Eternity of the Great Creator; He was as perfect before the birth of time — as He will be when "time shall be no longer!" He was as infinitely glorious when He inhabited the solitudes of immensity alone — as He is now with the songs of angel and archangel sounding in His ear! But "who can show forth all His praise?" We can at best but lisp the alphabet of His glory. Moses, who saw more of God than most, makes it still his prayer, "I beseech You, show me Your glory!" Paul, who knew more of God than other men, prays still, "that I may know Him." "Our safest eloquence concerning Him," says Hooker, "is our silence, when we confess that His glory is inexplicable."

And is this the Being to whom I can look up with sweetest confidence — and call "My Father"? Is it this Infinite One, whom "the Heaven of Heavens cannot contain," I can call "My God"?

Believer, contemplate the medium through which it is you can see the glory of God, and yet live. "No man has seen God at any time, the only-begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has revealed Him." He who dwells in inaccessible light, comes forth from the pavilion of His glory in the person of "Immanuel, God with us." In Christ, "the Image of the invisible God," the creature — yes, sinners — can gaze unconsumed on the lusters of Deity! Be it yours to glorify Him. Seek thus to fulfill the great design of your being. Let all your words and ways, your actions and purposes, your crosses and losses, redound to His praise. The highest seraph can have no higher or nobler end than this — the glory of the God before whom he casts his crown.

But He has a claim on you, which He has not on the unredeemed angels. "He gave Himself for you!" This mightiest of all boons which Omnipotence could give, is the guarantee for the bestowment of all lesser necessary blessings, and for the withholding of all unnecessary trials. While you are called to behold "His glory, the glory as of the only-begotten of the Father," remember its characteristic; it is not a glory to appall you by its splendors — but to win and captivate you by its beauties — it is "full of grace and truth." He is your God in covenant. "Underneath are the everlasting arms." You may compose yourself on your nightly pillow, with the sweet pledge of security, and say, "I will both lie down and sleep in peace, for You alone, O Lord, make me live in safety!" — Psalm 4:8

A little prayer: Oh Lord, God, Father of the entire universe, I can’t see You, but You can see and hear me; I put my faith in your words; and so, when I call out to You permit the words work for me each day; while I’ll give thanks and praises unto You in return, and I'll also spread Your fame too.

Study the Eternal Word of God
How much of what you do each day has eternal value? God’s Word is eternal so what better way to begin a new year than to commit to Bible study? God created you for a relationship with Himself but it is impossible to know God if you do not know who He is or what He says.

Boast about this: that you understand and know me, that I am the Lord who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. Jeremiah 10:24

There is a personal Bible study at the end of every post written on the website, Digging Deeper Hear God Speak. I have gathered all these Bible studies together so that you can print them and study God’s Word for yourself or use them with a group in your neighborhood or church.

See all the Digging Deeper Bible studies: http://diggingdeeperheargodspeak.com/study-the-eternal-word-of-god/

Li Zhongming was an elder of a church in Seoul, South Korea. For more than twenty years, he served the Lord fervently and concentrated on studying the Bible. Taught by the words and deeds of his religious leaders, he thought that believing in the Lord amounts to faith in the Bible and faith in the Bible is exactly the same as believing in the Lord. He believed that as long as he clung to the Bible, he could be raptured into the kingdom of heaven. These conceptions, like shackles, tightly restrained him from believing in and following God. Consequently, Li Zhongming never thought to investigate Almighty God’s work of the last days….
