FRIDAY MORNING MANNA       

Christmas 2017 and New Year 2018 Message

How would you say if your relatives and friends celebrated your birthday with you in your home by doting on everyone else except you, and doing everything else that had little or nothing to do with the significance of your birth? “Unbelievable.” And you are right.

But the majority of the Christmas revelers have been doing just that where the groundwork for our eternal salvation from sin by the Creator eternally becoming a man of the same flesh and blood nature subject to all temptations man is beset with—the mysterious incarnation, not through Mary’s alleged “Immaculate conception”— but by the plan of redemption, is concerned.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

A man is too apt to forget that in this world

he cannot have everything. A choice is all that is left him.

H. Matthews, Diary of an Invalid

______

     Thus says the Lord: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight, says the Lord.  Jeremiah 9: 23, 24, N.K.J.V.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK:

And he is oft the wisest man,

Who is not wise at all.

William Wordsworth, The Oak and the Broom

————

       Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.  And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: but the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.  And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet himSee Matthew 25: 1-13.

The Call of Wisdom from Above is the Call of the Holy Spirit

 

Turn at My reproof; Surely I will pour out My Spirit on you; I will make My words known to you. Proverbs 1: 23, N.K.J.V.

 The wisdom that is from above (see James 3: 13-18) is given by the Holy Spirit. Its goal is to make the receiver wise in God’s ways and His revealed will for each one of us. Often these come by way of strong reproof to make us turn from our ways and return to Him.

 There are two contrasting kinds and sources of wisdom—the earthly versus the heavenly, the carnal versus the spiritual. The wise man Solomon goes to great lengths to expound upon these two opposing wisdoms having experienced both as no one else has or ever will. He had to be referring to the pursuit of earthly wisdom and its folly when he wrote: “And further my son, be admonished by these. Of making many books there is no end, and much study is wearisome to the flesh.” Ecclesiastes 12: 12. Read more
