 The Six Men from Upper Gate of the North – II

 

      “These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look,lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren.” King Solomon, Proverbs 6: 16-19, N.K.J.V.

 

Note again the six things our God of love, power, and wisdom hates, and the seventh rounding out the rest, renders them an abomination to Him!

Six Empowering Topics for Today’s Mothers

By study and experience, her voluminous works are indeed, to me, “the lesser light that leads to the greater light”— the Bible and Christ Himself.  Wikipedia says, she wrote “more than 40 books and 5,000 periodical articles during her lifetime” but unfortunately adds, “believed by many deluded readers to have the spiritual gift of prophecy in the Bible.” I do, and am not delusional. Below are some of them, summarized under six favorite Mother-topics of mine, all of them interconnected, for Mother’s Day 2017:

“The king upon his throne has no higher work than has the mother. The mother is queen of her household. She has in her power the molding of her children’s characters, that they might be fitted for the higher, Read more

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; 

and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”  Revelation 13: 18, Authorized Version.

 

The following is quoted from: An Exhaustive E.G. White Commentary on Revelation, Vol. II Footnotes of Rev. 13: 18. Review & Herald Publishing Association:
