As Western governments are obsessed with the China virus and what to do; on what or whom are you relying?
Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
I am always amazed how some men become ‘celebraties’ within Christianity. One such man is Mark Driscoll! Here is Part Two of an interview https://julieroys.com/podcast/inside-the-driscoll-cult-part-ii/ with two men that were a part of Driscoll’s Trinity Church.
‘Is Google still your default search engine? If so, you are helping an anti-Bible, anti-morality, pro-sodomy, pro-perversion, anti-God company with every search you make. They also intend to censor you and to eliminate your voice if they can. For example, if you search for “Homosexuality is wicked,” the top result (as of when I wrote this article) is an article that laughably claims that sodomy is not condemned by Scripture, and other pro-sodomy articles are in the top page of results. If you search on the search engine DuckDuckGo, the top result is an article entitled “Five Biblical Reasons Homosexuality is Worse than Most Other Sins” and practically every other article on the first page is anti-sodomy, with the anti-sodomy articles being stronger against this perversion than the ones on Google. Do you really think that the top results on Google are unbiased, or is Google putting a heavy thumb on the scale? If you search for “scientific creationism” on DuckDuckGo, the first page includes links to the Institute for Creation Research and Answers in Genesis. Neither website is on the first page in a Google search. Do you think that is by chance? If you search for “Hunter Biden China collusion,” the top result on DuckDuckGo is an article from the leading conservative organization National Review entitled “A Collusion Trail: China and the Bidens.” On Google, National Review does not appear anywhere on page one and this article is at the very bottom of page 2. Chance? Oh, no!
DuckDuckGo is not specifically conservative–it just doesn’t have the leftist bias of Google. DuckDuckGo just puts up what most people actually are searching for when they do Internet searches. While some interaction with wicked companies is unavoidable, breaking your tie with Google here is easy. Open your “preferences” file in the browser(s) you use right now (it may be some dots in the top right corner of your browser, or it may be in a menu) and change the default search engine from Google to DuckDuckGo. Do it on your phone. Do it on your laptop. Do it on everything. Google wants your data to make money, but it doesn’t want your beliefs. It wants to destroy them. Stop giving Google money with your Internet searches, and resist Google’s censorship of God’s truth. It takes about five minutes. Do it now.’https://kentbrandenburg.com/2021/07/02/fight-googles-censorship/
The following link will take you to my podcast reading of Chapter Five of Dr. Howard Guinness’ book titled Sacrifice. Dr. Guinness lived the message of this book in that he trained as a medical doctor but spent his life as a Christian evangelist to students around the world. If you know the Lord as your personal Saviour I trust this reading will encourage you in your walk with the Lord but if you do not know Him that this reading will prod you to turn from your sins to Him. https://anchor.fm/david-bennett48/episodes/A-Reading-of-Chapter-5-of-Dr–Howard-Guinness-book-Sacrifice-e1442d8
‘The cultic activities of Mark Driscoll and The Trinity Church have escalated to a whole new level. As Julie’s guests describe on this edition of The Roys Report, Driscoll is now sending cease and desist letters, threatening to sue whistleblowers. And the threat is not in vain. Driscoll reportedly has amassed a $10 million dollar litigation fund to sue whistleblowers into oblivion.’https://julieroys.com/podcast/inside-the-driscoll-cult?mc_cid=fb7aed10a9&mc_eid=b13d34ad49

This link will take you to a reading I did of Communion with God by non-conformist preacher Matthew Barker. Matthew Barker lived from 1619-1698. https://anchor.fm/david-bennett48/episodes/Communion-with-God-e140a1f
Today, many professing Christians have lost touch with what it means “to meditate”. Perhaps this short video will help.
Psakm 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Psalm 104:34 My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the LORD.
Psalm 119:15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.
Psalm 119:148 Mine eyes prevent the night watches, that I might meditate in thy word.
Luke 11:28 “But he said, Yea rather, blessed [are] they that hear the word of God, and keep it.”
‘Our senses link us to the world around us and enable us to interact with the world. While most people believe that our sense of sight is the highest of the senses and the most marvelous in design, our sense of hearing is no less marvelous.
When a sound strikes your ear, your eardrum vibrates with the sound waves, fast or slow, soft or hard. These variations in vibration provide us with important information about the nature of the sound we are hearing. Some sounds produce a vibration in the eardrum as small as a billionth of a centimeter – only one-tenth the diameter of a hydrogen atom! There are three tiny bones in the middle ear called the hammer, anvil and stirrup. They pick up the vibrations from the eardrum, amplify them and send them on to the cochlea. The cochlea is filled with about 25,000 tiny hair cells that finally turn the vibrations into electrical signals that are sent on to the brain.
Our hearing is designed to be more sensitive to high-pitched sounds than to lower sounds. If we had just a little more sensitivity to lower-pitched sounds, we would continuously be distracted by the internal sounds of our body, including the blood rushing through our arteries. In fact, to help prevent this, there are no blood vessels at all in that part of the ear where vibrations are turned into electrical impulses. The body supports life in these tissues by constantly bathing them in dissolved nutrients.
While we can hear many things, and decide not to hear other things, the Creator who so marvelously designed our ears invites us to hear His Word to us from the Bible.’https://creationmoments.com/sermons/insulated-ears-2/?mc_cid=60fcec03a5&mc_eid=00c1dcff3c
