Charles Wesley

Charles Wesley (18 December 1707 – 29 March 1788) was an English leader of the Methodist movement, son of Anglican clergyman and poet Samuel Wesley, the younger brother of Anglican clergyman John Wesley and Anglican clergyman Samuel Wesley (the Younger), and father of musician Samuel Wesley, and grandfather of musician Samuel Sebastian Wesley.

Bible Challenge gem from Day 365: (Malachi 4:2) “For you who revere my name the sun of righteousness shall rise, with healing in its wings.” The winged sun was a religious symbol used throughout the ancient Middle East. This image comes only three verses away from the end of the Hebrew scriptures, powerfully prefiguring the “Son” of righteousness of the Christian scriptures. The image may seem familiar, even if you’ve not read Malachi lately. Think back to Christmas time when we sing “Hark the Herald Angels Sing;” powerful words from Charles Wesley, with beautiful music from Felix Mendelssohn. Stanza three draws from Malachi with these words: “Risen with healing in his wings, light and life to all he brings, hail, the Sun of Righteousness, hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace!” Keep your eyes open for a visual representation of this too as you drive around; the winged sun is used in the Chrysler and Mini Cooper logos.

Daddy.it is a word we all call our Dads growing up as children it is meant both as a relaxed way to show horror to our Fathers and a term of endearment...There are a whole bunch of men out there that would qualify as the best Daddy ever...however let me enlighten you on my Dad..The father of 10 children and husband to one woman who he loved very much...He worked long hours.stayed in the field farming even after that...took care of lots of animals to help feed his big family never complained about how many kids were in the house making noise...and even the occasional calf or two in the house didn't bother him...He didn't mind helping his fellow man and gave of his time talents and sometimes money when he had what little extra there was to help those less fortunate he was honorable, a God fearing man, and the best man I have ever met yet to date (in my eyes) You may have the best Dad ever in this world...but my Dad; Charles Wesley Wassam; was the best Dad in the Universe...bar NONE!
Keep us little and unknown, prized and loved by God alone. – Charles Wesley
And can it be that I should gain an interest in the Savior’s blood? Died He for me who caused His pain, for me who Him to death pursued? Amazing love! How can it be that thou my God shouldst die for me? He left His Father’s throne above, so free, so infinite his grace: Emptied Himself of all but love, and bled for Adam’s helpless race. 'Tis mercy all, immense and free! For oh my God, it found out me. Long my imprisoned spirit lay fast bound in sin and nature’s night. (Wearing that dark robe? It’s a description of that.) Thine eye diffused a quickening ray. I woke, the dungeons flamed with light. My chains fell off, my heart was free: I rose, went forth, and followed thee. No condemnation now I dread; Jesus, and all in Him, is mine! Alive in Him my living Head, and clothed in righteousness divine. Bold I approach the eternal throne, and claim the crown through Christ, my own. ("And Can It Be" by Charles Wesley)
A Pentecostal experience among early Methodists: January 1, 1739 "Mr. Hall, Kinchin, Ingham, Whitefield, Hutchins, and my brother Charles, were present at our love-feast in Fetter-Lane, with about sixty of our brethren. About three in the morning, as we were continuing instant in prayer, the power of God came mightily upon us, insomuch that many cried out for exceeding joy, and many fell to the ground. As soon as we were recovered a little from that awe and amazement at the presence of His Majesty, we broke out with one voice, 'We praise thee, O God; we acknowledge thee to be the Lord.'" I wonder if that "Mr. Hall" was some of my kinfolk? Imagine, one of my great great great grandfather/uncles/cousins in the same place where John and Charles Wesley and George Whitefield experienced the power of God!!!

"What is God like?" If by that question we mean "What is God like in Himself?" there is no answer. If we mean "What has God disclosed about Himself that the reverent reason can comprehend?" there is, I believe, an answer both full and satisfying. For while the name of God is secret and His essential nature incomprehensible, He in condescending love has by revelation declared certain things to be true of Himself. These we call His attributes. Sovereign Father, heavenly King, Thee we now presume to sing; Glad Thine attributes confess, Glorious all, and numberless. Charles Wesley AW Tozer

TOZER DEVOTIONAL Devotions » Tozer Devotional Fri, June 13, 2014 Let Us Love God as He Is in Himself Michael de Molinos, the Spanish saint, taught the same thing. In his Spiritual Guide he says that God will take the soul by the hand and lead her through the way of pure faith, "and causing the understanding to leave behind all considerations and reasonings He draws her forward. . . . Thus He causes her by means of a simple and obscure knowledge of faith to aspire only to her Bridegroom upon the wings of love." For these and similar teachings, Molinos was condemned as a heretic by the Inquisition and sentenced to life imprisonment. He soon died in prison, but the truth he taught can never die. Speaking of the Christian soul he says: "Let her suppose that all the whole world and the most-refined conceptions of the wisest intellects can tell her nothing, and that the goodness and beauty of her Beloved infinitely surpass all their knowledge, being persuaded that all creatures are too rude to inform her and t ...

SING A SONG Let everything that breathes sing praises to the LORD! Praise the LORD! (Psalms 150:6 NLT) Tradition tells us that Ambrose, the fighting bishop of Milan, introduced singing into the European church. In A.D. 380, the church was rent with heresy. History records that the devout "kept watch day and night in the church, ready to die with their bishop singing hymns and psalms so they would not succumb to weariness and grief." Today we have more than 400,000 hymns in the English language, and new ones are being written everyday. God's Word tells us we are to praise God in song. Much of Christianity's vitality lies in its hymns. When we get together for worship and sing unto the Lord, His Spirit draws us to Himself. Charles Wesley, a great hymnist, knew the power of sacred song. In his pocket hymnal, he tells us how we should sing: "Sing all. Join with the congregation as frequently as you can. Let not weariness nor weakness hinder you. Sing lustily with a good courage. Above all, sing spiritually. H ...
Thank God its Friday! Precious one, like Charles Wesley said, i pray Elohim fill our hearts with LOVE DIVINE from heaven... "Love divine, all loves excelling; Joy of heaven to earth come down. Fix in us Thy humble dwelling, All Thy faithful mercies crown: Jesu, Thou art all compassion, Pure unbounded love Thou art. Visit us with Thy salvation, Enter every trembling heart..." MHB 431 Stay blessed, connected and may the Pure Heavenly Love calm our trembling hearts and cause us to change so we can impact our world positively... IT IS WELL

PEACE TO THE CHILDREN All your sons will be taught by the LORD, and great will be your children's peace. (Isaiah 54:13) Dearly beloved, The Lord will command peace to your children. You must be knowing about a man of God called John Wesley. He was one among 19 children, all of whom were brought up by their parents in a small cottage in poverty. However, every night, whether they had supper or not, the mother used to place her hands on each child, pray for him/her and only then go to bed. Because of this, the children shone as world-renowned prophets. Even today, we sing the hymns composed by John Wesley and his brother Charles Wesley. We follow the truths of God revealed by them. The Lord will give your children this grace. Surely, your children’s peace shall be great. On the 60th anniversary of Dr. Billy Graham's ministry, while interviewing him, the CNN people asked him, “Billy Graham, what will you do when your ministry gets over?” He said, “I have now 16 grand children. If I start praying for ...
"How is it that you [Charles Wesley] can't praise God for saving so many souls from death, and covering such a multitude of sins, unless he will begin this work within 'consecrated walls'? . . . But I rejoice to find that God is everywhere. I love the rites and ceremonies of the Church. But I see, well-pleased, that our great Lord can work without them." — John Wesley
"From strength to strength go on; Wrestle and fight and pray, Tread all powers of darkness down And win the well-fought day." Soldiers of Christ Arise by Charles Wesley
Dark and cheerless is the morn Unaccompanied by Thee; Joyless is the day's return Till Thy mercy's beams I see, Till they inward light impart, Glad my eyes, and warm my heart. Charles Wesley (1740)

A long post but worth the read: A Prayer for Persecuted Christians Everywhere by Leonard Sweet In elementary school we all learned the ditty: “In fourteen hundred and ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.” Convinced by Christopher Columbus that a new, faster route to the rich spice regions of India could be found by sailing east instead of south, King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain financed an exploratory mission for this new route. Instead of India, Columbus found the New World — the lands that lay across the Atlantic ocean from Europe. In the long run it was a very good deal for Ferdinand and Isabella. But while Columbus was floundering about in the sea, the royalty of Spain had some other big-idea irons in the fire. Ferdinand petitioned the Pope and was granted permission to start a serious investigation into the religious orthodoxy of those under his rule. This ecclesial exercise became known as the “Spanish Inquisition.” It seems 1492 is a year when both new, exciting frontiers ...
What is one song that is among your very favorites for Christian worship, and why? It could be a classic hymn or a modern tune, from Charles Wesley to Chris Tomlin. I’m doing a bit of a project and am especially interested in songs that you believe do a solid job of articulating rich theological/doctrinal content.

Spent a delightful long weekend in Paradise aka NOLA. Saw my niece graduate from Archbishop Chappell high. Went to a party, shopped for shoes at a REAL shoe store where REAL people helped you in and out of shoes, ate Chinese food. Went to church at Rayne United Methodist Church on St Charles Avenue. Delightful traditional service where lovely Uptown ladies in Sunday-go-to-meeting suits with hats mingle with blue jean clad new agers and everyone inbetween. Heard a sermon about superheroes (Jesus is the ultimate superhero) sang Charles Wesley songs. Ate pancakes for supper. Went to the zoo. Saw sea lions. Absolutely wonderful time. Now 4nights in a row working.

It has recently been brought to my attention that there is a need for clarinet quartet music that can be played in churches. When I really think about it, bands and wind ensembles have a ton of great players at the high school level and a half a ton of great players at the college level. And I bet you something some clarinet players might even go to church! So, available right now in my collection of arrangements, to be had upon request is (drum roll now) twelve new clarinet quartets based on early American hymn themes. And you know what is the best part they all have matching SATB choir parts, very unusual and rare, if I do say myself. So, my favorite instrumentation for a clarinet quartet is, three Bb clarinets and one bass clarinet I like this combination the best, hope you do too. So here is the list of clarinet quartets. Alas!

Thought for the Day: A lot can happen in 40 days! Think over the last 40 days of your life and the events that have happened. We tend to think about time in the cycle of a year and look back over the events and happenings in the past year as we bring in the New Year. We may consider a week because we look to the weekend for some much needed rest and relief from stress at work. We speak of having a rough week and look forward to the next in hope that it will be better. Months are considered on occasion; but, hardly ever do we look back over 40 days. Yet, 40 days are seen in Scripture as a cycle when some of the most historic events have taken place. Noah was on the ark during the flood for 40 days and forty nights. When Moses fled Egypt, he stayed in the desert for 40 years. Moses also was on the Mount Sinai for 40 days. Because of their disobedience, the Children of Israel wandered in the wilderness for 40 years. Goliath taunted Israel for 40 days before David showed up to slay him. Elijah went to Horeb, ...

This is how I came to know Jesus. When I was younger I was obsessed by two times, wealth and revenge. It should be obvious that I was bullied at school, for years I had dreams of walking into my school with a knife and going on a killing spree. It is a good job I didn't have access to a gun, I probably would have been one of those on the news who went to school and shot everyone. The only reason I never committed murder was I was afraid to do it. Later in my mid teens I became fixated by money, I had had a fascination with it for many years, but my focus became to gather wealth. My everything was to gain financial capital. I was a boy without compassion, although it seemed that no one else noticed, I would have been happy to kill for money and there are many people who I would happily pay too kill. I think the philological diagnosis for this is that I was a psychopath. There were influences in my life that although ineffective remained present. My Dad knows Jesus and must have done His best. I don't remem ...

I am a Anglican, I am a Protestant, I am a Christian. I'm a Protestant because I don't believe in a Pope, but a Church board. I'm also a Protestant, because I believe the bible is is the word of God and God never changes. I'm an Anglican, because I believe in good works with faith, kneeing when you pray, and I believe in soft spoken truth. I'm like John Wesley, William Law, Martin Luther, Charles Wesley (Brother to John Wesley), and of course Jesus Christ. My Church of choice is the united Methodist Church which fights for social justice without giving up on social issues. {I wrote this on my wall, the reason I am sharing this is because it will save me time from explaining myself.

The Catholic Church alone was started by Jesus Christ in 33 A.D. and can trace her line of popes back 2000 years. History shows that all other churches were founded by different men throughout history who either broke away from the Catholic Church or just invented their own. The Coptic Church broke away from the Catholic Church in the 5th century while the Orthodox Church broke away in 1054AD. Martin Luther broke away in 1517AD. The Anglican Church began in 1534 with King Henry VIII. The Presbyterian Church began in 1560 by John Knox. The Congregational church started in 1582 by Robert Brown. The Episcopalian church is an offshoot of the Anglican Church and was started by Samuel Seabury. The "Baptists" were started by John Smyth in 1606. The Methodist Church began in 1774 with John and Charles Wesley. Theophilus Lindley started the Unitarian Universalists 1774. "Mormons" (the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints), was invented by Joseph Smith in 1829. The Church of Christ, and its offshoots ...
"I hear preachers today, they say, “No. No,no,no,no. You don’t understand, brother Paul. We are not like the people of the day of John and Charles Wesley. We are not like the culture that Whitefield addressed or Edwards. We are not as hearty as they are. We are broken. We don’t have as much self esteem. We are feeble.We can’t bear such preaching.” Listen to me. Have you ever studied the lives of these men? What they preached their culture couldn’t bear it either. No one has ever been able to bear the preaching of the gospel. They will either turn against it with a fierceness of an animal or they will be converted. And to give you a thing about us being more feeble and not having the self esteem, our country and this world is overrun with this disgusting malady of self esteem. Our greatest problem is that we esteem self more than we esteem God. ~Paul Washer, Ten Indictments Against The Modern Church

I want a principle within of watchful, godly fear, A sensibility of sin, a pain to feel it near. I want the first approach to feel of pride or wrong desire, To catch the wandering of my will, and quench the kindling fire. From Thee that I no more may stray, no more Thy goodness grieve, Grant me the filial awe, I pray, the tender conscience give. Quick as the apple of an eye, O God, my conscience make; Awake my soul when sin is nigh, and keep it still awake. Almighty God of truth and love, to me Thy power impart; The mountain from my soul remove, the hardness from my heart. O may the least omission pain my reawakened soul, And drive me to that blood again, which makes the wounded whole. ~ Charles Wesley ~ 1749

FORTY YEARS AGO From the Daily News Files October 29, 1891 “Squire Uriah Duckworth, aged 92, died suddenly at his home, three miles east of Barton, this county. He was born near Barton in 1799 and married Miss Ellen Wilson, daughter of Nathaniel Wilson in 1824. During the war of 1812 he tried to enlist but was only 13 years old and was turned down. He was offered $50.00 and a wool blanket to go as a substitute in 1814, but his mother objected so strenuously that he did not go. In the fall of 1820 the “Squire” went into Hampshire County and kept a Country School two years. Two years later he returned to Westernport and kept a village school six months. From 1823 to 1826 he kept store in Westernport for his brother-in-law, William Price. During the last fifty-seven years of his life, Squire Duckworth was a magistrate and served in Barton and Westernport. Many of the Squire’s old pupils recalled that on court days the school was converted into his courtroom and trails were held in the presence o ...

N.T.Wright wrote: "“The eighteenth century saw great movements of revival, particularly through the Methodist movement led by John and Charles Wesley and George Whitefield. Their theology and their understanding of the gospels are quite different topics upon which I am not qualified to speak. But, I suspect that the Wesleyan emphasis on Christian experience, both the “spiritual” experience of knowing the love of God in one’s own heart and life and the “practical” experience of living a holy life for oneself and of working for God’s justice in the world, might well be cited as evidence of a movement in which parts of the church did actually integrate several elements in the gospels, a synthesis that the majority of Western Christianity have allowed to fall apart."

As Holy Week continues, I want to share the words of Isaac Watts in one of my favorite hymns..."When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride." Charles Wesley reportedly said he would give up all his other hymns to have written this one.

LOOKING BELOW THE SURFACE Read:  Matthew 27:45-50 People say the dumbest things — often at the worst times. One dumb thing I’ve heard often, but just can’t agree with, is this: “Never ask God, ‘why’, only ask ‘what do You want me to do?’” If we are to never ask God, “why?”, why did Jesus?  What was Jesus’ “why” question in Matthew 27:45-50? The following question was texted in during a recent Sunday Celebration:  "I believe that our God is a very loving God, but why was there so much violence in His name in the Old Testament? I have actually felt guilt over having this question.”  “Why” questions are unsettling. I’m convinced though that if we will venture into that uncomfortable place, and look below the surface, the answers to our “why” questions might be life-changing. So, ask the question Jesus asked: Why did God forsake His Son, Jesus? What answer would you give to Jesus? Jesus wasn’t exaggerating. God the Father DID forsake His Son. Jesus asked “why” ...

Awake, Jerusalem, awake! No longer in thy sins lie down; The garment of salvation take, Thy beauty and thy strength put on. Shake off the dust that blinds thy sight, And hides the promise from thine eyes; Arise, and struggle into light, The great Deliverer calls: Arise! Shake off the bands of sad despair; Zion, assert thy liberty; Look up, thy broken heart prepare, And God shall set the captive free. Vessels of mercy, sons of grace, Be purged from every sinful stain, Be like your Lord, His Word embrace, Nor bear His hallowed Name in vain. -Charles Wesley

While amicable separation seems preferable to our current strained attempts at institutional unity, spiritual revival in our church is my ideal. Charles Wesley wrote the following verses on church unity for Methodist preachers. Would anyone be willing to join with me in praying this every day during Holy Week? O Lord, our Strength and Righteousness, Our Base, and Head- and Corner-Stone, Our Peace with GOD, our Mutual Peace, Unite, and keep thy Servants one, That while we speak in Jesus Name, We all may speak and think the same. That Spirit of Love to Each impart, That fervent Mind which was in Thee, So shall we all our Strength exert, In heart, and word, and deed agree T’ advance the Kingdom of thy Grace, And spread thine everlasting Praise. O never may the Fiend steal in, Or one unstable Soul deceive; Assail’d by our besetting Sin, And tempted sore the Work to leave Preserve us, Lord, from Self and Pride, And let nor Life, nor Death divide. Pride, only Pride, can cause divorce, Can separate ’twix . ...
I just discovered a whole set of hymns written by Charles Wesley for Methodist Preachers. Here is a sample verse: O Thou, whose soul-transforming Grace By foolish things, and weak, and baseEv’n now thy Work revives, Open our Mouths, to preach thy word; And help us, O Almighty Lord,To preach it by our Lives. Can I get an Amen?
This is our take on the 1740 Charles Wesley hymn.

THIS DAY IN CHRISTIAN HISTORY - MARCH 2, 1791 - DEATH OF John Wesley - FOUNDER OF METHODISM As priests in the Church of England, John and Charles Wesley traveled from Great Britain to Georgia, in the American colonies in 1735. While John's desire had been to preach to the Indians, he was appointed pastor of the church in Savannah. When he imposed church discipline on members who failed to notify him that they were taking communion, John Wesley found himself accused in civil courts by one of the powerful families of Savannah. The juries were stacked against him. To make matters worse, a woman he had been courting married another man. Susanna Annesley Wesley, John's mother, had a profound influence on his life. She and her husband Samuel, an Anglican priest, had 19 children. John was the 15th, born June 17, 1703 in Epworth, England, where his father was rector. Family life for the Wesleys was rigidly structured, with exact times for meals, prayers, and sleep. Susanna home-schooled the children, teaching the ...

March 2 the church remembers two brothers who had a lasting influence on the church-John Wesley who died in 1791 and Charles Wesley who died in 1788. John Wesley was a Church of England cleric and Christian theologian. Wesley is largely credited, along with his brother Charles Wesley, as founding the Methodist movement which began when he took to open-air preaching in a similar manner to George Whitefield. Wesley's writing and preaching provided the seed for the modern Methodist movement. Under Wesley's direction, Methodists became leaders in many social issues of the day, including the prison reform and abolitionism movements. Wesley held that, in this life, Christians could come to a state in which the love of God, or perfect love, reigned supreme in their hearts. He continually insisted on the general use of the means of grace (prayer, scripture, meditation, Holy Communion, etc.) as the means by which God sanctifies and transforms the believer. His maverick use of church policy put him at odds with man ...
Just in case you're not familiar with "George Whitefield", this should help: WHITEFIELD, GEORGE (1714–1770) Revivalist and well-known evangelist of the eighteenth century Whitefield was born in Gloucester, England, where he received his early education. Later he entered Pembroke College, Oxford, where in exchange for tuition he served several more highly placed students. At Oxford he was befriended by John and Charles Wesley and became part of the Holy Club, a group of young men devoted to the regular practice of Christian duties. While at Oxford he experienced an evangelical conversion and became convinced of the absolute necessity of spiritual regeneration for salvation. After receiving ordination as a deacon in the Church of England in 1736, he began preaching on the necessity of the “New Birth.” When opposition to his preaching resulted in churches closing their doors to him, he began preaching wherever and whenever the opportunity presented itself, such as in meeting houses of religious societi ...

Justin Taylor|5:19 pm CT Charles Wesley’s “And Can It Be”: Background and Scriptural Allusions According to the editor of The Oxford Edition of the Works of John Wesley (Oxford: Clarendon, 1975-1983, vol. 7), “And Can It Be” was written immediately after Charles Wesley’s conversion (May 21, 1738). Wesley knew his Bible well prior to this time, but had not yet experienced assurance of new birth or the fulness of grace in his life. The editor also that it was probably this hymn, or “Where Should My Wond’ring Soul Begin?” that was sung late on the evening of his brother John’s Aldersgate Street conversion just three days later on May 24. John Lawson, in A Thousand Tongues: The Wesley Hymns as a Guide to Scriptural Teaching (London: Paternoster, 1987), says this “is perhaps the best known and best loved of all the Methodist hymns associated with the conversion experience.” Wesley begins the first stanza by expressing amazement over the love expressed in God the Son dying for him; it is ...

Let earth and heaven combine, angles and men agree, to praise in songs divine the incarnate Diety. Charles Wesley
February 8 -- "At the Break of Day" The Charles Wesley hymn below reminds us that, as "servants of God," it is our duty to join with all believers as well as "angels above" in worship. Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim, and publish abroad his wonderful Name; the Name all-victorious of Jesus extol: his kingdom is glorious; he rules over all. God ruleth on high, almighty to save; and still he is nigh: his presence we have. The great congregation his triumph shall sing, ascribing salvation to Jesus our King. Salvation to God who sits on the throne! Let all cry aloud, and honor the Son. The praises of Jesus the angels proclaim, fall down on their faces, and worship the Lamb. Then let us adore,and give him his right: All glory and power, all wisdom and might, all honor and blessing, with angels above, and thanks never ceasing and infinite love. I hope you are planning to join with your family of faith tomorrow to "publish abroad" the mighty name of Jesus! Bro. Steve

Religious plurality in our day and age requires us to be sensitive in the use of military analogies and pictures. Some in the Christian circles think that hymns like UMH 513 "Soldiers of Christ, Arise" [original 12 verses for this hymn], UMH 717 " The Battle Hymn of the Republic" and the like should be excised because of their military metaphors and violent overtones. They bring to mind the Crusades of the Dark Ages which had inflicted a lasting divide between Christians and Muslims. They appear to be in contra-distinction to the message from the One who came as the Prince of Peace. Canon Dr David Kennedy from Durham University of Durham University expressed his views that these hymns sound too triumphalistic while the sense of the cost is missing: the power of Jesus Christ crucified. In Eph 6 Paul does not delight in violence or agression but he was merely using the common image of a soldier, a disciplined soldier, to describe how believers should live in the world. There are 3 ways to look at this part ...
Thanks for the add!!! Looking for fresh ideas on the following: My roadblock, Charlie Watson b est 1845, wife Sarah McFarland b est 1845. Son born 1876 Charles Wesley Watson.

I have searched for names of that time period, nothing, I have tried using phonics and searched girl names and nicknames, nothing. Can anyone give a go at what Erusy may be. Any ideas welcome, I'll research them all. Thanks y'all!

Step Up Week 5 Devotional Friday: Today, read and reflect on the hymn “O For a Heart to Praise My God.” Written by Charles Wesley, this song speaks about the desire to have a heart that is aligned with God. It is this kind of desire that enables us to now God more fully and truly dig into our faith. As you read this hymn, think about how it relates with you taking responsibility for your faith. O for a heart to praise my God, A heart from sin set free, A heart that always feels Thy blood So freely shed for me. A heart resigned, submissive, meek, My great Redeemer’s throne, Where only Christ is heard to speak, Where Jesus reigns alone. A humble, lowly, contrite, heart, Believing, true and clean, Which neither life nor death can part From Christ who dwells within. A heart in every thought renewed And full of love divine, Perfect and right and pure and good, A copy, Lord, of Thine. Thy tender heart is still the same, And melts at human woe: Jesus, for thee distressed I am, I want Thy love to know.
Soldiers of Christ arise. and put your armor on. strong in the strength . which God Supplies . through His eternal Son. -Charles Wesley
Stand then in his great might,. With all his strength endued,. Ye may o'ercome through Christ alone,. And stand entire at last. ~Charles Wesley

Remember to fly to Christ for refuge whenever the “storm of life” becomes overwhelming. He alone is our refuge and the one true foundation of life. 🎤Jesus, lover of my soul, let me to Thy bosom fly. While the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high! Hide me, O my Savior, hide—till the storm of life is past; safe into the haven guide, O receive my soul at last!(18th century hymn Jesus, Lover of my Soul by Charles Wesley)

Captain Of Isreal Host And Guide. 1. Captains of Isreal's host and guide Of those who seek the land above, Beneath thy shadow we abide, The clouds of thy protecting love: Our strength, thy grace; our rule, thy word: Our end the, the glory of the Lord. 2. By thine unerring spirit led, We shall not in the desert stray: We shall not full direction need, Nor miss our providential way: As far from danger as from fear, While love, almighty love is near. 3. We've no abiding city here, but seek a city out of sight; thither our steady course we steer, aspiring to the plains of light: Jerusalem the saints' abode, whose founder is the living God. ~ Charles Wesley

THE HIGHEST EXPRESSION OF FAITH by C. R. Stam In Rom. 8:26 we read what our hearts must often confess to be true: "...We know not what we should pray for as we ought..." But the Apostle hastens to explain that the Spirit makes intercession for us according to the will of God, adding: "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose" (Rom. 8:28). Believers may not receive whatever they ask for in the darkness of this age, but "God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work" (II Cor. 9:8). We may not receive whatever we ask for, but by His grace we may have so much more than this, that the Apostle, in contemplating it, breaks forth in a doxology: "Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, "Unto Him be glory in the Church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, worl ...
George Whitefield was a famous English preacher who was associated with John and Charles Wesley. One of his oft used illustrations pictured a man approaching the gates of heaven and inquiring of Father Abraham, " Are there any Methodists here?" Abraham answer was, No. Well are there any Anglicans? Again the answer was, No. He asked about Catholics and Baptists and got the same reply. Finally, in exasperation he, asked, Just who is here? And Abraham replied, We have Christians here, that's all...

Distinguishing the Body of Christ from Christianity Glenn Goodwin This fellowship has always been different, gloriously different, from every other group of churches in Christianity. That is not at all surprising. There are differences in denominations; differences between Catholics and Orthodox, differences between Methodists and Baptists, differences between Assemblies of God and Church of God in Christ. If we were exactly like some denomination – in doctrine, order, tradition, etc., then we’d be united with that denomination. But we are a distinct religious movement. We have been a distinct fellowship ever since God called Brother William Sowders on the banks of the Ohio River some 90 years ago. David said in Psalms 16:6: I have a goodly heritage. As a fellowship, we do also. It is good to contemplate our heritage in the Body of Christ. This helps us to appreciate who we are and focuses us on our primary mission. Christianity is vast – nearly one out of every three persons on earth claims to be a ...
Biography and hymns of Charles Wesley (1707-1788)
     In every relationship, there is one who initiates and one who responds. God is that "Initiator" and we (all of us creatures) are the ones who respond. Some respond with "Yes, LORD," and some (sadly, and much to their own deleterious hurt) with a "no."           It is possible, (but not wise at all) - to say "no" to God. The Bible has a name for these people, "fools." ~ The fool has said in his (own) heart, " No (to) God ~  Yes (to God) is our only option.  God (first of all) does not "suggest,"- He commands and.. has the absolute authority to do so! Why?          Because it is (dear ones) ~ He who has made us and not we ourselves ~  The "self-made man" is a myth. And again, (the scriptures say) - "for of Him and through Him and to Him are "all things!" ~ (I believe that about covers it!). He is (both) the Source, the Supply and the Sustainer of "every good gift and every perfect gift!"         We are His (first of all) His by right of creation- "It is He who has made us.." No m ...

God, my heart is fixed; I will sing and give praise, even with my glory. Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. PSALM 108:1-2 Something in man wants to worship God. The problem is, man wants to worship God the way he wants to worship Him. This is the reason God rejects all such worshipers. Our Lord Jesus said, God is spirit, and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. That little word “must” clears the deck for everything else. Nothing else is acceptable as far as God is concerned. If we are worshiping God, we need to worship Him as He desires to be worshiped. There is no tolerance here, no broad-minded spirit. But there is the sharp pinpointing of fact so that every man worshiping in his own way is completely rejected. If our worship is going to be authentic, it must start with God, never with man. Worship is not something man has developed or created. Worship has come exclusively from God. Nothing that does not come from God is genuine or authentic. Worship starts with ...

307: When shall thy love constrain Tunes: Dennis, 165; Southport, 178 Meter: S.M. 1. When shall thy love constrain And force me to thy breast? When shall my soul return again To her eternal rest? 2. Thy condescending grace To me did freely move; It calls me still to seek thy face, And stoops to ask my love. 3. Lord, at thy feet I fall, I long to be set free, I fain would now obey the call And give up all to thee. 4. Nay, but I yield, I yield! I can hold out no more, I sink, by dying love compelled, And own thee conqueror. Charles Wesley (1707-88)

"There’s a great old hymn by Charles Wesley that has this line in it. I’ll stop and you finish it if you know it. He breaks the power of, what? Canceled sin. That’s very good. He breaks the power of sin that’s already canceled. In fact, I would say the only sin you can make any progress in defeating is forgiven sin. If you try to turn your behavior of making war on sin the basis of the forgiveness of that sin, total defeat. And you’ve got Christianity all backwards again."- John Piper

He dispels our sin and sadness, life imparts, cheers our hearts, fills with food and gladness. Who himself for all has given, us he feeds, us he leads to a feast in heaven. “Glory, love and praise and honor” performed by Choir of the Abbey School Tewkesbury; Words: Charles Wesley (1707-1788); Music: Benifold; Meter: 83 36 D.

It's the birthday of hymn writer and Methodist Charles Wesley, born in Epworth, England (1707). He went to Oxford, where he was more interested in socializing than in Scripture — he wrote later: "My first year at College I lost in diversions." His older, more serious brother, John, wrote about Charles: "He pursued his studies diligently, and led a regular, harmless life; but if I spoke to him about religion, he would warmly answer, 'What, would you have me be a saint all at once?' and would hear no more." During his years at Oxford, Charles Wesley had a spiritual awakening. He wrote to John: "It is owing, in great measure, to somebody's prayers (my mother's most likely) that I am come to think as I do; for I cannot tell myself how or why I awoke out of my lethargy." He formed a group with three fellow students, and they devoted their days to studying the Bible and praying, minimizing everything else — not only socializing but also eating and sleeping. They were mocked by fellow students. John Wesley w ...

My hymn for today: Joy To The World. Two brilliant songwriters – although they never met – together created one of Christmas’s most lasting songs. Each of these two musical icons ignored established ways and blazed new trails, both trying to bring religious music into a new era. Isaac Watts, born in 1674 in Southampton, England, was very much his father’s son. The elder Watts (also named Isaac) was a revolutionary protestant church figure in Britain. Watts spent time as a personal tutor, then became the assistant to Dr. Isaac Chauncey at Mark Lane Independent Chapel in London. Within three years the now twenty-six year old Isaac became the minister. Through his hymns and writings, Watts became one of the best known clerics in England, inspiring others such as Charles Wesley and John Newton to also write new music for the church. It was while studying Psalm 98 that he penned his most famous song. He actually wrote it as a four stanza poem. Forty-four years after Watt’s death, Lowell Mason was bor ...

God is in charge of the world Is it not reassuring to know that God is King of kings? For the Lord is a great God, the great King above all gods. Psalm 95:3 NLT When the godly are in authority, the people rejoice. But when the wicked are in power, they groan. A just king gives stability to his nation… Proverbs 29:2,4 NLT Come, Thou Almighty King Come, Thou Almighty King, Help us Thy name to sing, Help us to praise; Father! all-glorious, O'er all victorious, Come, and reign over us, Ancient of Days. Come, Thou Almighty King (v1), AUTHOR UNKNOWN Presidents, kings, and other ruling officials should be honored and prayed for. So wrote the apostles Peter and Paul, who lived under the Roman emperors. But we must never forget that the King of kings and Lord of lords deserves our ultimate honor and complete allegiance. This hymn appeared anonymously in George Whitfield's Hymn Book, published in 1757. It is usually attributed to Charles Wesley, but was probably published anonymously for a good reason. Scholars t ...
Julia and I are having a discussion about Church music, and specifically how church music in the Roman churches has diverged, in the last century or so, from church music in the Anglican and nonconformist churches. "I blame Wesley", I say. The trouble is that neither of my default Wesleys (John Wesley, Charles Wesley) have anything to do with either of her default Wesleys (Wesley Crusher, Wesley Wyndam-Pryce). Cue much confusion.

Prayer Line! Our concept of the Church as the Healing Ministry: John Wesley (1703 – 1791) was one of the foremost English theologians. And during those days he was sent out to do some missionary works as a cleric by his Church. Then on his way back he met someone and entered into a conversation with him theologically. And the person began to ask him if he has the SAVING FAITH. To his greatest surprise as a “Certified Theologian” everything that he had said; his companion would say again, Mr. John Wesley this is not the SAVING FAITH. Then, he began to search the Bible based on what his companion had made known to him, and when he had reached home, he went to visit a local Church. It was what he saw and has heard there that made him to begin to feel disappointed with his Church which was the Anglican Church. Later on, and with his brother Charles Wesley they began a great “Revival” which gave birth to the “Methodist Church.” According to one story, one Pastor had spent most of his life in Indi ...

WOW what a awesome Saturday. Got a wee bit sidetracked in a GOOD way, when my old friend Cindy McCormick who was at cowboy church when I started there, came by and gifted me three quarts of fresh awesome goats milk. Am SO overjoyed she moved closer to me rather than the property in Copperopolis. Now I can see her goats more often. All 200+ of them. And I agreed to visit her little brown church in Burson, where the tow truck driver who helped me a week ago also attends. Small world. The pastors wife from the Mennonite church was so nice and asked me to visit them, which I promised I would do,and then I visited over the fence literally with a friend at the Methodist Church (behind me) who said she really likes their new pastor Anne Schlesinger. All I know about the Methodists are John and Charles Wesley, whose works I have read. Oh and the Salvation Army and Glide Memorial Church in San Francisco whose pastor Cecil Williams is so revered and admired. Had a tinge of a sore throat so remembered what our frie ...
