For A Rebel From Birth He Delays His Wrath

Isaiah 48:8-11 (NIV)

“You have neither heard nor understood;
from of old your ear has not been open.
Well do I know how treacherous you are;
you were called a rebel from birth.

For My own name’s sake I delay My wrath;
for the sake of My praise I hold it back from you,
so as not to cut you off.

See, I have refined you, though not as silver;
I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.

For My own sake, for My own sake, I do this.
How can I let Myself be defamed?
I will not yield My glory to another.”

Or, as Kutless puts it:

As the passage and song above say, it seems we always turn ourselves away from God, even tho He’s the whole point of living. After all, Christ shed His own blood, as man (even tho He’s God), for you. Not only have we not listened to Him, we have been a Rebel From Birth. Sinners. Think about that for a while. If you get nothing else frmo this random post…ponder that one and mull it over in your mind for a while.

Yet, somehow, for some reason, God provided the above Way to save us…As far as the east is from the west that is how far He will take your sins away.

It’s His grace. For a rebel like you and me, He will delay His wrath, give you a second chance (and often more) to repent and return to Him. Amazing how that works, eh? Ya, I know I’m rambling…not sure what my point is here. Just wanted to share some things that are on my mind, related to an issue I’m dealing with that I will not put to words here. (All I’ll say is that a little prayer would be nice…)

To close, remember I Corinthians 15:57-58…”But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.” (NIV) (Thanks goes to my friend Soliloquy for that one.)

God Bless,
Pilgrim.

MORNING FROM HADES!

Holy Crap! Not only did I get up when I was to be clocking in…but then the microwave wouldn’t work right for me. If the turntable don’t spin, the heat don’t go. A minute and a half to heat up icing? I DON’T THINK SO! And then the recalcitrant cinnamon roll dough. THEY WOULDN’T RISE! I got so mad at them, I chucked the little devils into the trash. I didn’t even want to eat them myself. I ain’t gonna give them that pleasure…And speaking of devils, the only thing missing from this morning on life’s vendetta against me is the little forktailed demon himself standing behind me laughing. And don’t get me started on the goram bread! YOU WERE THAWED! WHY’D YOU TAKE 4 HOURS TO RISE! Holy Crap! Or, as Lindsay told me that crap isn’t holy…UNHOLY CRAP! And then icing wouldn’t pour…and then I spilled coffee…and then stuff fell on the floor…and then I went over my time…and then my morning just sucked. Ugh! I meant to make this a very well articulated and nicely don’t blog post, and not just a rambling rant…but all them plans got chucked out the window when I started. VENT CITY. Why’s the Corliss-Curse have to hit me now? Why not when I can take it. WHY NOT WHEN I’M AWAKE! When I’m not trying to earn extra money for a very important item I need to purchase. Sigh…Lord, please don’t let the rest of the day be so bad. Please?

God Bless,
Pilgrim.

P.S. Comment please and make my day better. :(


Thoughts.

Not really much of a post…or an update. Just a few passages in the Word that have jumped out at me the last few days (and all without any as of yet known reason).

“My son, if sinners entice you, do not consent.” (Prov. 1:10, NKJV)
[Is it possible for you to entice yourself? Justification and other such “well, it’s only once…” arguments?]

“Do not turn to the right or the left; remove your foot from evil.” (Prov. 4:27, NKJV)
[Remove your foot from the place of evil…as in: don’t dwell where it exists.]

“If the righteous will be recompensed on the earth, how much more the ungodly and the sinner.” (Prov. 11:31, NKJV)
[Quit complaining bout your (ultimately) petty problems! (Speaking to myself too, lol)]

“What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not!” (Romans 6:15, NKJV)
[As Chris spoke about in his blog, liberalism is not a good thing…]

“For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.” (Romans 8:6-8, NKJV)
[Ditto.]

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2, NKJV)
[As I was reading these passages in bed the other night, before going to sleep, I linked the three from Romans. I read them in conjunction with one another. I’ll put that in it’s own blog.]

And, for good measure, a link to Chris’ blog on legalism.

Hope y’all didn’t mind my blathering…lol…


Smoke and Fire

I apologize for the swear word in this song. But it fits my mood. My ball and chain is made of smoke, yet its as strong as steel…

Life beats me down…
I am going to drown…

My vision is clouded…
My efforts are routed…

The smoke surrounds me…
And from it I can’t seem to flee…

My determination exits thru the door…
As another match hits the floor…

And yet there is hope in all this:

Pointlessness

This entry has no point other than to post a blog. I’m trying to get my writing back in gear, and this is how I’m doing it: I’m posting even though I have nothing to post. So if you got a problem with that, then I don’t care. lol. Sorry for the pointlessness of it all, but I will get a real blog posted up soon. I’ll write it at home and post it when I get to a net-worthy computer. Thank you and goodnight.

God Bless,
Pilgrim.
