Be gentle with every person you meet--they are fighting a great battle.


Oswald Chambers from his book "Disciples Indeed"

The main characteristic which is the proof of the indwelling Spirit is an amazing tenderness in personal dealings and a blazing truthfulness with regard to God's Word.

"It may take you a while to shed your current belief that God is vindictive, but at least open up your heart to the idea that God's punishment is for the purpose of correction and will end with the result of restoration and reconciliation for all! Jeremiah 10:24 states… O LORD, correct me, but with judgment; not in thine anger, lest thou bring me to nothing." - Thomas J. Kissinger

I took some time to review topics that I started as goodreport and decided to bring back a few Quotable Quotes for you all to enjoy as well.

"The message of the gospel is, 'God has saved the world, believe it.' "


"I rejoice that God has called me to participate in the salvation of all, to offer hope to the downtrodden, to warn the wicked in love and humility, knowing that they are all appointed to salvation in HIS time."

--- Quote from: goodreport on December 01, 2012, 02:14:56 AM ---Mother Teresa
To fear is to expect punishment
To love is to know we are immersed not in darkness, but in light.

C.H. Spurgeon

"Cleanseth," says the text, not "shall cleanse."  There are multitudes who think that as a dying hope they may look forward to pardon.  Oh! how infinitely better to have cleansing now than to depend on the possibility of forgiveness when I come to die.  Some imagine that a sense of pardon is an attainment only obtainable after many years of Christian experience.  But forgiveness of sin is a present thing, a privilege for this day, a joy for this very hour.  ...  The text, being written in the present tense, also indicates continuance; it was cleanseth yesterday, it is cleanseth today, it will be cleanseth tomorrow: it will be always so with you, Christian, until you cross the river; every hour you may come to this fountain, for it cleanseth still.  Notice, likewise, the completeness of the cleansing.  "The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from ALL sin.  Reader, I cannot tell you the exceeding sweetness of this word. ... Blessed completeness!"

"Great are You, O Lord, and exceedingly worthy of praise, Your power is immense and Your wisdom beyond reckoning.  And so we men, who are a due part of Your creation, long to praise You -- we also carry our mortality about with us, carry the evidence of our sin and with it the proof that You thwart the proud.  You arouse us so that praising You may bring us joy, because You have made us and drawn us to Yourself, and our heart is unquiet until it rests in you."

--- Quote from: goodreport on November 08, 2012, 03:03:11 AM ---"It is the consciousness of the threefold joy of the Lord, His joy in ransoming us, His joy in dwelling within us as our Savior and Power for fruitbearing and His joy in possessing us, as His bride and His delight; it is the consciousness of this joy which is our real strength.  Our joy in Him may be a fluctuating thing; His joy in us knows no change."   Hudson Taylor

from Jabcat Tentmaker Forum 11/4/12

...although a true believer will follow in Jesus' footsteps, that's not what the scriptures say makes one spiritually reborn, which Jesus said must occur before one can enter the kingdom.  I believe the scriptures teach that it is not by the Law, or not by works, not by effort to do good deeds, including what we may imagine as "following Jesus' footsteps".  Following Him is an act of obedience as the indwelling Holy Spirit empowers us to do so, after we're spiritually reborn and infilled.  Salvation is through the gift of grace through faith in Yeshua and His finished work on the cross.  That happens when the Holy Spirit convicts us of our need for the Savior and gives us faith and strength to believe on His Name as our Savior."

"The new song (of the 144,000) cannot be learned by others in part because, Overcoming death and entering into immortality is not learned.  It is similar to being born again in this regard.  It is something God must perform.  This is the third in a row of songs that concern a big change in the people of God wrought by Overcomers' ministries.  The same changes are in view, only in an ultimate intensification this third time.  We are to be brought closer to God by the transformation of our physical bodies into incorruptible bodies of glory.  Our identity as being born of God will be revealed when the physical is born of resurrection.  All creation will be set free."

from  Daily Overcoming Ray Prinzing for April 14


God is preparing that which shall become "bread for the hungry".  Jesus is the LIVING BREAD which came down from heaven", (John 6:51), was broken for the whole world.  And now, that which is becoming HIS BODY, becoming in Him "one bread", (1 Cor 10:16), is also being bruised, broken, as a living sacrifice which shall become the ministration of His life for ALL of His creation.

Would you be poured out as wine upon the altar to Me?
  Would you be broken as bread to feed the hungry?
Would you be so one in Me that I may do just as I will
   To make you life, and light, and love, My Word fulfill?

You who have been puzzled by these pressures and processes which have engulfed you, be encouraged that "it pleased Him... it was the will of the Lord," to bruise us in this hour, until broken and contrite we might become bread for the nations.  "He took the five loaves...He blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves...to the Multitude."  Matt 14:19).

Ignatius once said, "God has made me bread for His elect, and if it be needful that the bread must be ground in the teeth of the lion to feed His children, blessed be the name of the Lord."

Everything must give way to a mellowness, a brokenness in us.  Thus His life shall be manifested to a creation waiting to be fed.

by coincidence????  Oswald Chambers' Daily Devotional for April 14


"...the joy of the Lord is your strength" (Neh 8:10).  Where do the saints get their joy?  If we did not know some Christians well, we might think from just observing them that they have no burdens at all to bear.  But we must lift the veil from our eyes.  The fact that the peace, light, and joy of God is in them is proof that a burden is there as well.  The burden that God places on us squeezes the grapes in our lives and produces the wine, but most of us see only the wine and not the burden.  No power on earth can conquer the Spirit of God living within the human spirit; it creates an inner invincibility.


Jer. 15:16
Thy word was found, and I did eat, and Thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of my heart for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.

eat:  as soon as Thy words were found by me, I eagerly laid hold of and appropriated them.

Thy word ... joy  Ps 119:111 Thy testimonies have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart.

called by thy name:  I am Thine, Thy minister

Hab 3:18-19
v 18   Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
v 19   The Lord God is my strength, and He will make my feet like hinds' feet, and He will make me to walk upon my high places.

Heb 12:2
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the JOY that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. 

Heb 7:25
Wherefore He is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by Him, seeing He ever liveth to make intercession for them.

from Oswald Chambers

The place for the consoler is not that of one who preaches, but of a friend who says nothing, but prays to God about the matter.  The biggest thing you can do for those who are suffering, who are lost, is not to talk platitudes, not to ask questions, but to get into contact with God and "the greater works" will be done by prayer.

John 14:12-14 (AMP)
v 12  I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.

v 13   And I will do [I Myself will grant] whatever you ask in My name [as presenting all that I Am], so that the Father may be glorified and extolled in (through) the Son.

v 14   [Yes] I will grant [I Myself will do for you] whatever you shall ask in My Name [as presenting all that I Am]
