The plans and additional sure Bradley Junior welcoming you to another broadcast of the Baptist Bible.

This is anniversary month and our theme is give glory to God. The messages were using all connected in some way with that theme and we have a packet that has a message entitled to God the glory. And there's another CD with 14 films will send this to you upon request certain we hope that you can help us with the expense of the program. We depend on our listeners for that support. Our address is the Baptist Bible Auerbach 17 oh 37, Cincinnati, OH 45217 and then he says which made heaven and earth and the sea and all that is therein, which keep with truth for ever. He keeps he is faithful God promises something even going to do it. He is a keeping God. God doesn't enter into a covenant in the break make a promise and then forget about it. Something that we can rely on. How good to know that he keeps truth, he is faithful. But here's promise to do, he will fulfill. Paul then writes the church finances. In chapter 1 verse six being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ started work and then break it off has undertaken to save the soul and say this listeners to greater challenge. This part is too hard. I cannot break though. He who has begun a good work and you will perform the day of Jesus Christ. I given them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall a man pumped about that tells us in chapter 2 the same epistle verse 12. Wherefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling as he is not telling us that salvation is a result of human effort and you got work hard in order to secured, but this guy who begun a good working you is working and therefore the result of his work in the admonition here given me is that you working out you serve God with fear and trembling. Why is God who worketh in you both to women to do of his good leisure may reach a point periodically were you safe my love pigeon the tile I just am so frustrated and I'm so discouraged with my own efforts, I thought, but this time I would've made progress. I would've gained ground, I would be stronger and weaker than I've ever been. I continue to fail terribly. As I think I give up.

But why are you here this morning.

Why is it you haven't given up because it's God who works in you both to will and do his good pleasure. At the very time he said I want to pitch in the data that was starting a heart is nowhere else to go is over those when Jesus was here on the earth but turned aside after hearing his playing declarations turned to the others. I would you go with the words of life. Genuine faith may stumble on a falter.

I may wonder, for a time to go to the Lord, I come back to him. He is a faithful God and trusting the text says that he is the creator door and seeing that if he's the one that made heaven and earth, the very earth that we are living on that you can put your confidence in him. I thought as I prayed about heart your before coming into the stand so desires of the Lord would bless us with his presence in the services today and I had to remind myself and express it in the prayer. My heart toward the very earth where living on you made. This is your earth, the heavens over so your heavens, the fact that we are here that we have life and that we are breathing with your people. You made us. This is your church mature vasculature because it's your kingdom. Just pray that your name will be honored. God is faithful, and when we remember that he is the creator are which made heaven and earth, the sea and all that therein is to have confidence were not talking about trusting one who is weak, trusting, one who might fail trusting one who will not remember his promise, trusting one who might void his covenant, though were talking about God, upon whom we can comfortably depend and then he says that he sets the prisoner free. I do not recall that there is any evidence of Jesus literally releasing someone who was in prison while he was here. I'm thankful that we receive a good bit of mail to our radio broadcasts from people who are in prison, and other testimony that some of them give it seems evident that God has indeed touch their hearts and change their life. So even while they are still imprisoned and suffering as a result of their actions. They have found deliverance. They found deliverance from their sin and from the power of it and they find joy in the Lord and I think that that really is primarily what's under consideration here when it speaks of them setting the prisoner free. Jesus spoke of it in the fourth chapter of the book of Luke when he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day picked up the Scripture and read the prophecy itself from the book of Isaiah Luke chapter 4 verse 18 the Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor get sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, and to set at liberty them that are bruised to preach the acceptable year of the Lord, I wonderful when one who is a prisoner of sin is set free and it no longer enslaves it no longer keeps one in constant captivity. He delivers the prisoner delivers from the power of sin and ultimately even from the presence of an obviously back his redemptive work from the penalty of then it speaks of giving sight to the blind. Now this Jesus did repeatedly when it was here he opened the eyes of the young man that was born blind on the Pharisees were so perplexed about this, because when the consult with his parents and it was confirmed that yes this this government was born blind, but now we can see in the question him about that. I think if you want the details will I know that I was blind, now I see this man Jesus opened his eyes. What a blessing. What a blessing for one who was born blind to be able to see four others who were blind now to be able to see all the blessing when those who are in spiritual darkness. Those who are blind and cannot see have their eyes open to see things they could never otherwise have been able to comprehend the book of first Corinthians chapter 2 verse nine says what as it is written, I have not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for them. Loving the fact is, my friends, that all of us in nature were spiritually blind. We could not see. I have not seen the things that God had prepared for them that loving verse 10 but God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things EA, the deep things of God blessing on the blind have their eyes open and sassy. Thanks the truth I see Jesus Christ was no ordinary man. He was the son of God is the Savior of sinners trusting he's made it known to us by spirit.

Periodically I hear from somebody wizardly preach on the radio and they say I think you were wrong in your interpretation of a particular passage of Scripture the other day I got a response from the listener who was very direct that I heard your message, but the Bible is wrong. Well, I was a somewhat encouragement it wasn't somebody at this point time back and interpreted incorrectly. But he said the Bible is wrong about the man obviously is in darkness because the Bible is right. The Bible is the word of God. It may not suit your notion of your inclination, but the Bible is God's inspired word. What a blessing when one who has been in darkness could not see not believe Nancy's cheese things ever seen before person in nature.

Haven't read much like the fancy self-righteous I come in on that. I'm just around extortion.

I don't always mean bad thing.

Now when they see like the public can God be merciful to us and said I just don't get it. I don't understand how these people are religious charts all the time. I like believe all this stuff just makes sense to me but you see, if it does mean that all the questions are answered. But you see that's what you know you're a sinner you know you need help and you know the just one that can help if that's Jesus Christ you see that present evidence that God has blessed you with the gift of faith in you. Rejoice that your eyes are open person can be physically blind and yet see a lot Fanny Crosby is a vivid example of that. She wrote many of the hymns in our hymnal.

In fact, in her lifetime she wrote over 8000 hymns. This woman was blind and she would have the him in her mind before she ever dictated it to anybody to write it down to have as many as 12 or him working in her mind before any of them were dictated. The record in fact you will so many cams that some publishers were hesitant to put that many hymns by the same author in their book, and so she would use another name so her hymns could be widely circulated. We love the saying, blessed assurance praise him praise him. She wrote the hymn to God be the glory and on and on. The list goes. She was a unique individual. She was called on to visit with presidents. She played one of her hymns at the funeral of Pres. Grant. She was a great blessing in the lives of many people and we still of course enjoy the hymns that she wrote she penned these words old. What a happy soul.

I am although I cannot see I am resolved that in this world contended, I will be how many blessings I enjoy that other people don't to weep inside because I'm blind, I cannot and I won't at another time, she penned these words, it seemed intended by the blessed providence of God that I should be blind all my life and I thanked him for the dispensation. If perfect earthly site work offered me tomorrow. I would not accept. I might not Hymns to the Praise of God. If I Had Been Distracted by the Beautiful and Interesting Things about Me. She Once Said When I Get to Heaven. The First Face That She'll Ever Gladden My Site Will Be That of My Savior and I'm Happy and That Anticipation.

What Is Spirit What Evidence of Grace Rather Than to Complain Rather Than to Feel That Her Life Was without Meaning Because She Could Not See.

She Did Say She Saw A Lot Of Things at People with 2020 Vision Couldn't Say She Saw the Sovereignty of God. She Saw All the Beauties of the Savior, Jesus Christ. She Anticipated That They Would. She Would Finally See Him Face to Face. Yes, Our God Opens the Eyes of the Blind's Recent Appraising Minutes Says He Lifts up the Bow down. He Raises up Them to Bow down. Remember There Was a Woman Who Was Bowed down with an Infirmity or 18 Years and Jesus Healed so She Stood up Right Where It Must've Been to Go Student over down 18 Years What You Mean Even Jesus Here's a Remarkable Change. She Now Is Lifted up, It May Be That Some of You Here Today Would Say, While Not Bow down Physically. I've Been Bow down for a Long Time. My Heart Is Heavy I Go Feeling the Weight of the World Is on My Shoulders and Bowed down Only Take about One That Lisa Want to Tell You about One That Will Give You Grace to Bear Whatever the Burden That Comes Your Way. The Gospel of Luke Chapter 1 Verse 52, Said He Has Put down the Mighty from Their Seats and Exalted Them of Low Degree Exalted Them of Low Degree Lifts up Those That Are Bowed down. God Has a Special Interest in Those with Great Need and Delights to Lift Them up and That It Says He Loves the Righteous. You May Say That's No Comfort to Me Because I Don't Feel Myself to Be Righteous and Indeed None of Us Are in Ourselves, but He Has Made Us Right by Nature.

We Were All on Righteous Jesus Christ Died. They Made Sin for Us, That We Might Be Made the Righteousness of God in Him. That's What He Says in Second Printing 521 for He Hath Made Him to Be Sin for Us, Who Knew No Sin That We Might Be Made the Righteousness of God in Him But Because Were Worth It. Not Because We like This in Ourselves, but Because He Has Imputed the Righteousness of Christ to Us He Loves Us in Christ except Us in the and, Therefore, When We Come to the Throne of Grace, We Can Come Only Character Come to the Throne Room of God Asking That He Would Hear Us and Bless Us on the Basis of How We Conducted Our Life and How We Do Tire Resources of What Our Thoughts Abandon Our Attitudes Know When We See Ourselves so Full of Sin Was There to Call upon His Name but He Says Come Boldly to the Throne of Grace, and There You Go to Find Mercy and Find Grace to Help in the Time of Need. He Loves Those Were Made Righteous in His Son Jesus Christ Tells Us That He Cares for Those That Have Special Need the Lord Preserve with the Strangers He Would Leave with the Fatherless, and the Window in Some Cultures the Stranger or the Alien Was Basically Rejected Entirely Lived a Miserable Life in a Foreign Land. And Sometimes There Are Great Prejudices Even in Our Own Land against Those That Come from Another Background, but Isn't It Interesting How the Lord Take Special Note of the Stranger or of the Alien in the Old Testament We Find That There Were Special Provisions Made in the Laws That God Gave to Israel. Special Provisions Made As to How the Stranger Was to Be Treated As to How the Orphan and the Widow Was to Be Treated How the Poor When They Pass through Somebody's Field Were at Liberty to Use a Sickle and Cut down the Court Take a Year of Core Plucked from the Brink. This Was All Because This Was God's Way of Seeing That, the Widow, and the Orphan and the Stranger Would Be Careful If You Feel As One Who Is Separated Rejected Have No One to Care. We Telling about a God Who Cares for the Stranger, the Fatherless, with No If God Cares for Them His People to Be Concerned about Them As Well Look of James Chapter 2 Verse 14 He Says, What Does It Profit My Brethren, Though a Man Say That He Hath Faith and Have Not Works Can Faith Save If a Brother or Sister Be Naked and Destitute of Daily Food, and One of You Save Them Depart in Peace, and Be Warmed and Filled Notwithstanding, You Give Them, Not Those Things Which Are Needful the Body, What Doth It Profit. The Product. If We Then Are Going to Be like Our Heavenly Father, We Too Will Have Concern for the Stranger for the Fatherless for the Widow to Know That God Takes Special Note of the Needs of These Individuals Is Indeed a Blessing Theirs Interjected Here. The Fact That the Way of the Wicked. He Turned Upside down. In Contrast to the Fact That He Loves the Righteous the Way of the Wicked Be Turned Upside down There Been a Time in Your Life When You Felt like Everything Was Turned Upside down. The Menu Didn't Want to Acknowledge Wicked Maybe You Were Walking in the Wicked Path They Go You Will Being Rebellious and Disobedient Make You Give a No Fault of the Things of God.

Any Turn Things Upside down. One Trouble from Another. One Difficulty after Another to the Singer Home Was Falling Apart. The Fact That God May Turn It Upside down Can in Itself Proved to Be a Blessing for You and Bring to Repentance Bring to Recognize How Desperately Need Him When Wicked He Turns Upside down. Nothing about His Expression Also in the Psalmist Says That He Makes Even the Wrath of Man's Appraising the Rest of It He Restrained. Here's a Wicked Person Going after the Righteous Here.

Those That Would Seek to Persecute the Church Hear Those That Would Seek to Discredit Its Testimony Here That Want to Destroy the Breaking of God and What Does the Lord Do Turns Their Way Upside down Makes Even Their Laugh and Their Evil Intentions Appraising for the Rest of It Restrained Back to Ginkgo and You Not See That There Is Reason to Worship God. When You See How Great He Is, How Involved He Is in the Details of Our Lives. And Then the Last Verse First Hand the Lord Shall Reign for Ever, Even Thy God, O Zion on to All Generations. Hallelujah Praise Ye the Lord. Praise Him Because He Reigns. It's Such a Basic Truth and yet One That so Often Is Misunderstood. Even the People Shall Believe the Bible I Believe in God but the Thing to Recognize That God Reigns God Is on the Throne. God Is Working His Way to God Is Sovereign Psalm 93 Verse One Ring If He Is Clothed with Majesty.

The Lord Is Clothed with Strength Wherewith He Hath Girded Himself. The World Is Establish That It Cannot Be Moved. I Want to Know That God Is on the Throne. Psalm 47 over Psalms Are Full of It over and over Again to Bring It to Our Attention. How Great Is the Lord with Psalm 47 Verse Eight Says God Reigns over the Kievan Piece Is upon the Throne of His Holiness, Rings You Become Alarmed When You See the Evil. The Trend in the World Today Is That What's the Future Hold Cannot Help but Be Concerned about What Is It Not Good to Know That God Still Reigns What Evil Schemes There May Be Plots There May Be God Reigns God Is on the Throne We Should Praise It Was Worshiping for Hallelujah Praise the Lord Because He Not Only Can We Find These Wonderful Reminders throughout the Old Testament, We Come to Paul's Epistle to the Church in Ephesus and Find a Chapter Want a Reference to the Fact That Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Is Exalted, and in That Place of Rule and Authority. Ephesians Chapter 1 Verse 18 the Eyes of Your Understanding Being Enlightened, That You May Know What Is the Hope of His Calling, and What the Riches of the Glory of His Inheritance in the Saints, and What Is the Exceeding Greatness of His Power to Us Ward Who Believe, According to the Working of His Mighty Power, Which You Will in Christ When He Raised Him from the Dead and Set Him at His Own Right Hand in the Heaven the Places I Get This, He Raised Him from the Dead.

He Said in His Own Right Hand in Heavenly Places, Far above All Principality and Power and Might and Dominion, and Every Name That Is Named, Not Only in This World but Also in That Which Is to Come.

Put All Things under His Feet and Gave Him to Be Head over All Things to the Church Which Is His Body, the Fullness of Him That Fill with All Things Jesus Christ Is over All Things, the Savior, Then, in Whom We Trust Is Not One Who Is Weak, Frustrated and Disappointed. He Is King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Should We Not Praising Praises Even Lord. Praise the Lord, O My Soul Psalm 146 Begins Psalm 146 Indians. The Lord Shall Reign Forever, Even Thy God, O Zion at All Generations. Hallelujah Praise Ye the Lord.
