Heaven Is My Home

Just sharing a wonderful hymn with you.This hymn and it's sentiment is very much an encouragement in times of uncertainty and turmoil. Those who walk by faith are, no doubt, Strangers and Pilgrims. This world is not our home. -BW

These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. - Hebrews 11:13

Heaven Is My Home
By: T. R. Taylor
Arr. Lowell Mason

I’m but a stranger here, Heaven is my home;
Earth is a desert drear, Heaven is my home;
Danger and sorrow stand, Round me on every hand;
Heaven is my fatherland, Heaven is my home.

What though the tempest rage, Heaven is my home;
Short is my pilgrimage, Heaven is my home;
Time’s cold and wintry blast, Shall soon be over past;
I shall reach home at last, Heaven is my home.

There at my Saviour's side, Heaven is my home;
I shall be glorified! Heaven is my home;
There are the good and blest, Those I love most and best;
There, too, I soon shall rest, Heaven is my home.

Old School Hymnal, 12th Edition, hymn 389

 
Some Thoughts On Angels
Written by Ben Winslett   
Thursday, 09 September 2010 19:28

Below is the answer to a question I received via email.

Question: What are angels and what do they do?

Answer:

Angels are ministering spirits, that is, they minister to us (I believe invisibly most of the time) in times of need (Hebrews 1:14). They are of greater power than are we (at His incarnation, Christ was made LOWER than angels, as a man - Hebrews 2:9). In fact just one angel killed 185,000 Assyrians in one night in Isaiah 37! There are many angels, arguably equally proportional to the number of God's children alive at any given time (Mth 18:10). So many, that they are considered an innumerable company (Hebrews 12:22).

Angels bring messages to God's people (Luke 1:19). They also fight God's battles militarily (Revelation 12:7, Matthew 26:53). Angels also perform certain tasks for God on earth (Jude 1:9). Luke 16:22 indicates that angels carry us to the Lord's presence when we die.

Some angels did indeed rebel against God (ie the angels that sinned) sometime after the creation (2 Peter 2:4). This was probably at the time of the fall of Adam, though we don't know for sure. Nor do we know their names. The "lake of fire" is a place reserved for the devil and his angels (Mth 25:41). It is presumed that these "devil's angels" are those who fell into sin.

According to 1 Timothy 5:21, Angels who did not sin are called "elect angels." They are upright and serve God in Holiness.

Hope these thoughts help.

I received these questions via email...below are my answers.

I was hoping you could impart your thoughts to me on Galatians 3:2 -

1) In what sense is Paul talking about receiving the Spirit?

2) What is meant by the "hearing of faith"?

3) And does this verse at all correlate with Romans 10:17

Prayer Request for Constacio Tejada
Written by Ben Winslett   
Monday, 06 September 2010 07:56

This is a prayer request I received earlier today from a dear friend Elder Darrel Chambers. Please pray for the brother reported of in the below email.


Several of of you may remember Elder Constacio (Cons) Tejada - a dear Primitive Baptist elder from the Philippines. He visited with several other ministers a few years ago. Elder Tejada's father passed away while he was visiting Union Church on this previous trip. I felt so sorry for him then to see him grieve from half a world away from his family. Elder Tejada is also a brother-in-law to Elder Manolo Dalman that recently completed a trip to America to preach in several places. He accompanied us and served as our protector and safety adviser on some of our trips to dangerous parts of Mindanao - never leaving our sight except when we broke down on the mountainside and he left to get parts for the car. I love and appreciate him very much. Most of all, I love his preaching and zeal for the Lord. He is a great preacher and interpreter.

Elder Tejada suffered a stroke earlier in the week and is paralyzed on his right side. Initially he couldn't speak intelligibly, but that has greatly improved. He also could not feel his right side at first, but some feeling is now returning. We hope and pray this dear brother will continue to improve under the blessings of our Great Physician. Eld. Tejada lives in a remote part of Mindanao where there are not hospitals close by. Elder Dalman had to drive several hours to pick up Bro. Tejada to take him to Pagadian to a hospital. He was released yesterday and is returning home to recover. Please keep this dear brother in your prayers.

Blessings,

Darrel Chambers

 
Doth God take care for oxen?
Written by Josh Winslett

“…..Doth God take care for oxen?”

 

This question was recently brought to my attention by a preacher friend. The Apostle Paul asks the above question in 1 Corinthians 9:9. I had never really given this question much thought. I usually thought, “well of course he does, he feeds the sparrows.” Is that the right answer? Does he take care of the oxen? What is the right answer? Let us take a look at the verses through the entire chapter.

The Responsibility Of Pastors And Churches - Wilson Thompson
Written by Ben Winslett   
Thursday, 02 September 2010 08:54

Here is a great quote by Elder Wilson Thompson which I read this morning. Elder Thompson was probably the most well known minister of his era.

"Every preacher should love his Lord well enough to obey Him, feeding the flock, even if he got no money for it; nay, if it cost him all he had, and even his life beside. And the flock who were fed by him should remember that he had a right to his support from them. The duty of the church was plainly laid down, and they ought not to neglect it. The flock should be fed with doctrine, well tempered with experience and exhortation. The youngest lambs love sound doctrine if it is bright with experience; and the older sheep love experience if it is according to sound doctrine. Thus all the flock will feed together." - Elder Wilson Thompson

He espouses the perfect Biblical balance. Ministers should go and preach, regardless of financial reimbursement or support. They preach freely for the Love of Christ and His gospel. Yet, the same God Who holds ministers responsible to go and preach freely, also commands the churches to support their ministers in "carnal things," ie temporal support. In both cases, preaching freely and support of the ministry is an act of obedience to God.
