Satan’s Tackle Box

Season 10, Ep. 205
. How can we expect to win souls to Christ if the inspection of our lives by the world leaves them wanting to see any distinct difference between their lives and ours? This mini-series "Twelve Devices of the Devil to Draw the Soul to Sin" is adapted from the writing of Thomas Brooks, a Puritan author who lived from 1608-1680, entitled“Precious Remedies Against Satan's Devices.” I have included a link in the show notes to his complete works found on archive.org, in a public domain publication from 1776 edited by the Reverend Alexander Balloch Grosart, Liverpool.Thomas Brooks WritingsCut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!

For Want of a Nail.

Season 10, Ep. 204
“For Want of a Nail” first arrived in culture in the 13 century, and made famous here in the United States when Benjamin Franklin included a version of it in his June 1758 publication of his annual “Poor Richard’s Almanack”. In simple yet memorable prose it strikes a chord that all are familiar with, that seemingly unimportant acts or omissions can have grave and unforeseen consequences. The Bible is full of examples of things that at first glance may seem small of insignificant, but in the end, we learn just how big the small things are of can become!

Working Fatigued

Season 10, Ep. 203
An accident is"an unfortunate incident that happens unexpectedly and unintentionally, typically resulting in damage or injury." When we work tired and fatigued, we are an accident waiting to happen.Working fatigued is not of the Lord and addressing the cause and cure of fatigue will require faith to get to the rest we all need. In Isaiah 40:27-31, we find that the cure for life and work fatigue is the affirmation of the glory of God the Creator in our lives in real time through resting, trusting, and waiting. Together, and in this order, they constitute the biblical way of renewal.The Prophecy of Isaiah, An Introduction & Commentary by J. Alec Motyer, pages 307-308 was used in preparation of this podcast. Motyer's commentary is the best resource to use when studying Isaiah, the God's magnum opus of all Old Testament prophecy!Cut & Paste Personal Invitation to invite your friends to check out “gwot.rocks” podcast:I invite you to check out the podcast, “gwot.rocks: God, the World, and Other Things!” It is available on podcast players everywhere!

Life’s Sweet Song of Faith

Season 10, Ep. 201
While the American culture focuses on the meaningless and mundane, God offers a calling to a higher realm of existence both in living and especially in dying. The saints listed in the Hebrews 11 Hall of Faith all died in their faith, before the birth of our Lord. Their epitaph is "These all died in faith."

Learning to Profit in Prosperity!

Season 10, Ep. 199
This is Empowering Encouragement NOW #18! If we would learn to profit by our prosperity, we should not need so much adversity. If we really know Him, it should be natural that His rich blessings that flow to us should provoke better things, and not worse things. Have we lately received some blessing which we little expected? Has the Lord put our feet in a large room? Can we sing of His mercies multiplied? Allow God's blessings to provoke increased righteousness and not rebellion! Special thanks to Mountain Man Mike for his editorial feedback! I deeply appreciate him giving his time to listen and give good feedback!

Happy Thoughts

Season 9, Ep. 198
In Romans 8:1-27, we see five ways that the Holy Spirit is at work in the life of a Christian. This will make your heart happy! The five key points were drawn from my key theology professor, Dr. William E. Bell! I am excited to provide a link in the LIFE HELPS section of our website transformthiscity.org! Thank God for the technology that provides access to the living legacy of great Bible scholars like Dr. Bell. You really will be amazed when you go to the website that hosts a vast amount of his work, . You can trust every single lesson you find there by him. He was a conservative theologian who handled the Word of God with great care and accuracy. The Bible reference is hyperlinked to Bible Gateway. It is one of my favorite Bible websites. I think their logo is exceptional! It is as minimalist as you can get, yet so profound in what it represents! (Clarification: at the end the words are "to walk this precarious EARTHLY road.)
