Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 25 April 2019


Stay In The Church

“Now therefore, I pray you, swear unto me by the LORD, since I have shewed you kindness, that ye will also shew kindness unto my father's house, and give me a true token: And that ye will save alive my father, and my mother, and my brethren, and my sisters, and all that they have, and deliver our lives from death. And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee. Then she let them down by a cord through the window: for her house was upon the town wall, and she dwelt upon the wall. And she said unto them, Get you to the mountain, lest the pursuers meet you; and hide yourselves there three days, until the pursuers be returned: and afterward may ye go your way. And the men said unto her, We will be blameless of this thine oath which thou hast made us swear. Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee. And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him.” (Joshua 2:12-19)

Today’s Morsel:  The harlot Rahab was a woman of faith.  Even though her occupation doesn’t coincide of one with faith, scripture says that she had faith.  And she is even listed among those in the hall of faith in the book of Hebrews (Hebrews 11:31).  When she received the spies that Joshua had sent spy out the land, they told her, “Behold, when we come into the land, thou shalt bind this line of scarlet thread in the window which thou didst let us down by: and thou shalt bring thy father, and thy mother, and thy brethren, and all thy father's household, home unto thee. And it shall be, that whosoever shall go out of the doors of thy house into the street, his blood shall be upon his head, and we will be guiltless: and whosoever shall be with thee in the house, his blood shall be on our head, if any hand be upon him.”  They told her that her family must stay in the house.  God is coming again.  Therefore, we must stay in the house of God and do everything we can to keep our family inside with us.  It is the only way we will be saved.  No matter how long it may seem, He’s coming again. 

Sing: It’s the old ship of Zion, it’s the hope for the lost and the dying. It’s a soul-saving station, it’s the tower of salvation.
 It’s the Church Triumphant, O Lord and its built by the hand of the Lord.  I’m talking about the Church in the Book of Revelation.  It’s built on the Rock, it’s got a firm foundation.  It’s been through the flood and its’ been through the fire, but one of these days, the Church is gonna move up a little higher.  It’s the Church triumphant, O Lord and it’s built by the hand of the Lord.

Thought For Today: Upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

  2. While fish oil supplements contain the “brain healthy” fats called EPA and DHA, those two are not technically the “essential” fats. The plant omega-3 known as ALA is essential and that is because our bodies can convert ALA into EPA and DHA when necessary.
