I find myself so sentimentally attached to this world that I cast out the devil each time he brings the thought of having to leave it behind for a New Jerusalem somewhere. Well, someone just whispered that such thoughts are from the Holy Spirit and not from the devil.
It takes the wisdom and courage of a man to run a home. It takes a spirited effort of a man to stand noble and faithful to the wife of his youth. A male husband will flirt with anything in skirt (although they now come in trousers). A male father is what every child should pray against and may God please answer such prayers.
How did she break the good news to your mother? “Mummy, your worries are over. The king’s daughter wants you immediately at the palace.” Saying it this way would have confused your mother. Mama would have wondered why being wanted at the palace was good news to Miriam. It would have been ironically confusing, because at this period in history, I guess, no Hebrew gets excited visiting the palace. Being wanted at the palace can only spell T-R-O-U-B-L-E! Mama would have thought she was wanted for defying the king’s order by sparing
In the wisdom of the elders, (you don’t call them elders for the fun of it o), they knew the soldiers would need a chariot/carriage that would assist their new found ministry to travel far and wide.
This may not be the worst of them, but it’s certainly one of the most unfortunate stories of the Bible. It’s a story of a free fall from grace to grass.

The first thing that struck my heart is the kind of knowledge Jesus had about the situation He found Himself. I notice that Jesus did not just know that the Pharisees heard that He made and baptized more disciples than John, but He also knew how they heard it.

Today, I go about looking to tell all existing Eli of the need to arise and prevent the further loss of God’s soldiers dying in service and sadly IN THE CHURCH. I call on the elders to stop being indifferent to Ark bearers like Hophni and Phinehas accompanying God’s Ark all about.
Dear sister, is it true that you are ignorant that your husband is living beyond his means? Is it true that you do not know the source of the money coming from him into your hands and home? Why are you looking the other way knowing he has started stealing from his office and from the purse of the ministry?
