Shoutin’ Saturdays 8-27-16

I am at a prayer service on the Worcester County Courthouse steps today. May God have mercy on our nation!

Hebrews 12: 25-29 reads,

 See to it that you do not refuse him who speaks. If they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, how much less will we, if we turn away from him who warns us from heaven? 26 At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.”[e] 27 The words “once more” indicate the removing of what can be shaken—that is, created things—so that what cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, 29 for our “God is a consuming fire.”[f]

It is time for the church to noise abroad that the time of shaking has come and we must hold fast to faith!

Please add your own admonition to faith in the comments section below.

Morning Directions From Scripture 8-26-16

I am currently in the Berkshires leading worship for Special Touch Ministries. So I am going to move to posting only twice daily ( though I may pop in a few times with candid posts if I have connectivity at the Getaway). Please understand if I don’t get right back to comments. I will be working solely from my smartphone (Which truthfully is a bit smarter than I am).

I will declare your name to my people;
    in the assembly I will praise you.
23 You who fear the Lord, praise him!
    All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!
    Revere him, all you descendants of Israel!
24 For he has not despised or scorned
    the suffering of the afflicted one;
he has not hidden his face from him
    but has listened to his cry for help.

25 From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;
    before those who fear you[f] I will fulfill my vows.
26 The poor will eat and be satisfied;
    those who seek the Lord will praise him—
    may your hearts live forever!

27 All the ends of the earth
    will remember and turn to the Lord,
and all the families of the nations
    will bow down before him,
28 for dominion belongs to the Lord
    and he rules over the nations.

29 All the rich of the earth will feast and worship;
    all who go down to the dust will kneel before him—
    those who cannot keep themselves alive.
30 Posterity will serve him;
    future generations will be told about the Lord.
31 They will proclaim his righteousness,
    declaring to a people yet unborn:
    He has done it! Psalm 22: 22-31

Looking at verse 31 What is the “it” God has done?

Looking at verses 25 and 26 specifically how should our worship of God effect our practical living in a world full of need?
