135.8 Degrees Below Zero

USA Today — December 11, 2013 report

There’s cold, and then there’s Antarctica cold.  How does a frosty reading of 135.8 degrees below zero sound? Based on remote satellite measurements, scientists recently recorded that temperature at a desolate ice plateau in East Antarctica. It was the lowest temperature ever recorded on Earth, though it may not get that recognition in the official record book.  A NASA satellite measured that temperature in August 2010; on July 31 of this year, another bone-chilling temperature of -135.3 degrees was recorded.

James 1: 2-6  “My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,  knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.  But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.  If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.  But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind.”

Are you in the middle of a cold, frozen tribulation period in your life?  Or as my youngest daughter told me last night, a huge valley full of trials.  Then, thank your Heavenly Father through the Lord Jesus for the divine magnificent love as He continually prepares us to do His work.  So, worship Him with your life until He receives us into “His Eternal Glory”.  Sending you prayers and blessings in spite of a tribulation of deep freeze.  🙂  ♥Streim

Friday’s Message in Music

Hebrews 11:1-3 “ Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the men of old gained approval By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.”  Verse 6 “And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.”

Far too many of today’s supposed Christian churches stress the need to change with society.  That means (for so many it’s sad) they should consider the feelings of people when teaching the Bible.  They speak about God’s love very much… but fail to preach about sin, the need for salvation or repentance.  You see, people don’t like those words, so these churches cover it up with all kinds of other stuff!  If you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and have a living relationship with the Father through Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit then you know:

For through the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think more highly of himself than he ought to think; but to think so as to have sound judgment, as God has allotted to each a measure of faith.” Romans 12:3

Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.”

Praying the message of this song is something you will share with others.  ♥ Streim

 

Friday’s Message in Music

Hebrews 11: “1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 2 For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. 3 By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible. 4 By faith Abel offered to God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain, through which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God testifying of his gifts; and through it he being dead still speaks. 5 By faith Enoch was taken away so that he did not see death, “and was not found, because God had taken him”; for before he was taken he had this testimony, that he pleased God. 6 But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” (NKJV)

You’ll hear folks say ” I’ll believe it when  see it”.  Well, for those of us who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord and have been adopted into the family of God should “live by faith, not by sight (Hab. 2:4b) .  We receive that faith from God the Father through His breathed out word The Holy Bible.  Spending time daily to feed on the Word keeps us walking on the right path.  Notice I didn’t say read, I said feed.  Feeding on the Word of God is reading, studying, digesting and using for our spiritual growth.  As God told Moses to remind the Israelites in the desert:  So He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.”  My pray for you, my brothers and sisters, is that each day you grow more in your walk with the Lord.  This song is a very nice representation of ‘walking by faith’.  ♥ Streim
