Interesting reading!

People say... "It's to hard to read all the old English words in the older Bibles with all the "Thee's and Thou's" but.....

Here are some interesting findings...

Words that begin with a "t" ( thou...thee...they and thine" ) are singular and mean only one person.

Words that begin with a "Y" ( Ye...You...Yours...) are plural and mean more than one person.

e.g. John chapter 3 verse 7...: "Marvel not that I say unto thee....ye must be born again...."

We notice that Jesus Christ is talking to only one man....Nicodemus.....so He uses "thee" as he is talking to only one person.....but then he follows with.... "Ye must be born again..." Why the change from "THEE" to "YE"?

It means that, even though Jesus is talking to only one man.....Nicodemus......He is addressing all the people "YE" for all need to be born again....not just Nicodemus!

Our Bible does not need help from modern day critics...God wrote the book and every "thee" and "thou" has been placed there to assure the reader, that the book they are reading is flawless
and can be fully trusted.....isn't God Wonderful?

bless you...

Why do we expect non believing people/children to behave right?

If we, as Christians, expect our children to "act right"
and we say... "don't lie...don't steal...don't kill"

Why should we expect this... "don't lie...don't steal....don't kill" from those children, who have not had a christian up bringing,.

Won’t this simply put in them a hypocritical patterns of life?

Here are at least some reasons why Christian parents should expect their small children, to behave in ways that fits in with what God asks from us.

I say “small children” because as a child gets older, there are certain things according to God's will that should be done, and others that should not.

It seems to me, for example, while parents should require drug-free, respectful decency from a 15-year-old, it would not do much good, to ask an unbelieving and indifferent 15-year-old to read his Bible every day.

But it would be wise to expect that from a 6-year-old, while we help him to enjoy it and see the benefit in it.

So the following points are reasons why we should expect smaller children to behave as young Christian children, according what God's word says for them to behave.

for example:

A respectful and well mannered 5-year-old unbeliever, is better, than 15 year old, defiant, disrespectful, ill-mannered, unbelieving bully.

Which means the family, the friendships, the church, and every body in general will be thankful for parents that restrain the miss behaved children and each them, instead courtesy and kindness and respect, early on in their young lives.

2) Expecting obedience from children while they are still young, shows them in a gentle but firm way,the meaning of sin in relation to God, and their need for Christs love.

There does comes a point where the “law” dawns on the child. At certain age, he realizes that God (not just his parents) requires a certain way of life from him and that he does not like some of it, and that he cannot do all of it.( and this age is at different stages for different children)

It is at this time, the good news of Christ’s dying for our sins becomes all important.

Will the child settle into thinking "I have to work for my salvation?"

Or will he hear and believe that God’s acceptance and forgiveness and love are free gifts—and receive this God, in Christ, as the treasure of his life?

At this stage the child will have a hard time grasping the meaning of the cross if parents have not asked him to do certain things, or not do them, because Jesus does not like him to do these things!

Christ lived and died, to provide for us the righteousness we need (but cannot perform) and to endure for us the punishment we deserve (but cannot endure).

If, as parents, we do not give a certain amount of discipline because of what our children did wrong or perhaps did not do at all..., then the dying of Christ on the cross for our sins, will be difficult for our children to understand...

3) The signs of good manners (“please,” “thank you,” and good eye contact) are habits that, God willing, are filled later with grace and become more helpful ways of blessing others and expressing a humble heart.

When our children are born they are born with empty minds and it is up to us, as parents what is put in those minds.

As parents we do not have the luxury of not teaching them anything at all.

If we do not insist on them being obedient we get the opposite...defiance!

If we do not teach them good manners, we get the opposite....rudeness!

If we do not show them that they need to daily read their Bibles, we get the opposite...no learning at all!

But most of all, while we do try and discipline our children, as God is long suffering with us and loving with us, so we must be with our children;

* Let there be lots of encouragements for anything they do.

* We must forgive them often.

* We must show lots and lots of interest in what they do and praise any effort they have made.

* We must be good role models in showing our love for our Christ.

* We should never be embarrassed to apologize to them for any mistakes we have made.

* We must forgive often...

* We will pray for them without ceasing.

* We must saturate them with the word of God from the moment they are in the womb (the uterus is not sound proof)

* We must forgive often ( did I mention that?).

* Let them see us sing in glorifying and worshiping Jesus.

* We must teach them relentlessly the meaning of the gospel in the hope that God will open their eyes and make them alive. It happens through the gospel (1 Peter 1:22-25).

TRY JESUS........

I've seen that bumper sticker and/or T-shirt around for years and it never really had an impact on me. I just didn't think much about it.

This morning, though, as I sat talking to the Lord, an analogy came to me that I think the Lord wanted me to share.

There are many trials and troubles in this life. If you're older than five years old, then you know that as well as I do.
For most of us, when trials assail us, we begin a relentless quest of how to overcome. Most specifically, I think about illness.
As a person who suffers from imperfect health, I know this for a fact. We begin with the general practitioner, exhaust that person's knowledge; proceed with intensive testing and then begin seeing a specialist.
We try one medication and then another, and we add one here and another there. It's a never ending spiral into this, that, and the other to see what benefits us the most in at least preserving the appearance of health.

So, too, it is with our spiritual life. We know we're sick, separated from the spiritual perfection that God created in the garden when he walked with Adam and Eve, and we're dying from it.

We do things that we don't even really believe we would do if we were presented with an opportunity. And so, we begin to try to heal our soul sickness. There are so many ways to try to heal ourselves that I don't know if I can even begin to list them but here are a few that specifically come to mind: we choose a friend to confide in and ask for their opinion, we then progress on to counseling, sometimes, depending on the sickness, we might have to progress to a de-tox if you're dependent on or addicted to something, and it seems like almost always we progress to the point where the healing of our soul comes down to a "religion" so to speak, whether it be "Buddha", "the inner physician" of the New Age Movement (old), and on and on and on.......

Well, why not try Jesus?

His yoke is easy and his burden is light.
He is the great physician and besides,
His word proclaims Him to be the creator of all,
so it stands to reason if He can create it,
He can fix what's wrong with it.

The world and its lies and deceptions can overcome just about everything but that singular name of Jesus.
It is a hated name by many just because of what it stands for, or maybe it's because of what that name stands against.....soul sickness, sin, rejecting God the almighty creator of all that is, the things we know about and the things we don't know about.

Mankind is so cocky. We think we know better than the Almighty what is good for us.

I know this from personal experience. He has a purpose for putting restrictions and limitations on us - it's for our own good.
But ever since that day in the garden when tempted with the chance to be "as God", we have thought to know better than Him what is best for ourselves. Jesus taught about being at one with the Creator, to let Him live in us and direct our lives.
We don't have to try, we just let Him BE in us and He shows us the right way which restores the balance of good (doing what is good and righteous)
and bad bacteria (using an emotion or thought that is "bad" in nature for good - like mourning over sin, or righteous anger) in our souls and eliminates sickness and restores us to spiritual health and prosperity.

I say, Try Jesus, because if He is, indeed, who He says He is, isn't it worth it?

I mean, isn't it worth it to have spiritual health and rightness with God?

And if He wasn't who He said He was, His teachings are still teachings that lead to wholeness and spiritual health.

You win either way.

Interestingly enough, there have been many through the 2,000 years since Jesus' birth who have decided to give Him a try and ended up devoting their entire lives to Him because they have found Him to be exactly who He said He was, i.e. our provider, our restorer, our salvation, our righteousness, our healer, the prince of peace, Emmanuel, Lord of Lords, King of Kings, Alpha, Omega, Beginning and the End.

For years I sought medical help for my physical problems and I had a friend who kept telling me that I should try natural medicine because allopathic medicine only covered up the symptoms and did not treat the root cause of the problem.

I wouldn't listen, just kept limping along the road of what is well known and taught as science and truth until I reached a critical point where I had to re-evaluate my thinking.

Once I began the trip down the "natural" road the one most in tune with nature and the creation, I became more and more convinced of its reality and truth.

So it is with Jesus and soul sickness. He told us that He is the way, the truth and the life, but we want to make sure we wear our the ways and the truths that man has to offer before we reach that critical point of reaching out and trying Him.

Hey, what do you have to lose.....except your soul to soul sickness and death if He is, indeed, who He says He is! By Kimberly Marts
