Third Sunday of Advent: The Third Sunday of Advent: Joy The joyous news of the birth of the Christ-child was first given to a group of humble shepherds who were taking care of their sheep near the town of Bethlehem. Peace, Goodwill, and Joy were the highlights of the message that heralded His birth. Just as light cuts through the darkness, joy had come to the earth to usher in a real and personal relationship with God. Joy came to hopeless mankind that day. Today’s world is filled with tragedy, grief, and separation from God. Hearts that are open to Him may still hear the ‘Good news of great Joy” and rejoice that the “Christ” is given. Also, those hearts that have the joy of their reconciled relationship with God longs for the joy of Christ’s return when there will only be joy; grief, pain and death will finally be banished forever and ever. (Light the first two purple candles. Then light the pink candle of joy.) Say, “I light this candle on the third Sunday of Advent to remind us of t ...

AMAZING GRACE Most people who sing hymns: "Amazing grace, how beautiful it sounds, the saved junk (wretch: good for nothing, devil, never do well, villain, rascal, rouge, .

CHRIST BLOOD SPEAKS A BETTER MESSAGE: The Blood of Christ: Now, fast forward about 4,000 years to a time where we behold the Son of God nailed to a tree, being murdered by His brethren. He bleeds from his five wounds, and finally dies. All of a sudden a cry is heard in heaven. The angels ask, “What is that?” God replies, “It’s the cry of blood, the blood of My only-begotten and beloved Son!” God looks down and listens as that blood cries out. But instead of crying out, “Vengeance! Justice! Wrath!” this blood has a different cry – “Mercy! Pardon! Acceptance!” This shouldn’t surprise us, because the One who bled and died cried out from the cross, “Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” We would have thought that Christ’s blood would have demanded vengeance for what His murderers had done to Him. If Abel’s murder was avenged by God, how much more should Christ’s murder be avenged? We would have thought that God would strike the world with fire and bri ...
Only when the ark of the covenant was brought into the temple and set in its rightful position, which was the central place, did God's glory fill the temple. " Then the priests brought in the ark of the covenant of the Lord to its place. (And) the cloud filled the house of the Lord, so that the priest could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord" (vv.6, 10- 11 NKJV).There's a lesson here for all of us, particularly those in church leadership. Christ alone must have center stage !! Programs and promotions are fine. But only when Jesus is honored as Lord, His Word preached, and His presence reverenced and relished, will His glory fill the church.Next time you're standing in God's house singing His praise, pause and remind yourself: it's about Him, not me !

June 18 Psalms 90-97 (Psalm 90) This psalm is attributed to Moses, thus making it the oldest psalm of the Psalter. "Man of God" is an appropriate designation for Moses (Deut. 33:1; Josh. 14:6). It served as the inspiration for Isaac Watts' great hymn, "O God, Our Help in Ages Past." (90:4) Man's life is fleeting and brief in contrast to the eternity of God. Peter alludes to this verse (2 Pet. 3:8) in reference to the promise of Christ's return. (90:12) The emphasis here is upon the frugal use of years and not upon the number of years. Usefulness surpasses longevity. The psalmist pleads for discernment in ordering his days. (Psalm 91) This Psalm is often used in funeral to talk about a life well lived. It is about a man who trust in God for guidance in life. (91:2) The righteous man’s confession - Lord is my refuge, fortress, joy, and confidence (91:3-13) – He commends God to others as a sure deliverer, protector, inspirer of confidence, and as rescuer from death. (91:11-12) This passage certainly sug ...

My hymn for today: I Will Arise And Go To Jesus by Joseph Hart. In London, there is a cemetery across from Wesley’s House and Chapel named Bunhill Fields. It is the resting place of “Dissenters”, spiritual giants who refused to follow the State Church and thus were not allowed burial on “consecrated ground.” Among the graves, you’ll find John Bunyan, author of ‘Pilgrim’s Progress’, Daniel Defoe, author of ‘Robinson Crusoe’ and some of Britain’s greatest hymnwriters, including Isaac Watts. You’ll also find Susanna Wesley, mother of Charles and John and today’s author, Joseph Hart. Born in London in 1712, Hart was raised Christian, but turned from the Lord in his twenties. Joseph even wrote an anti-Christian pamphlet entitled, “The Unreasonableness of Religion,” in response to a John Wesley sermon. Finally, at age 45, after a bout of depression, Joseph fell under deep spiritual conviction after hearing a sermon from Revelation 3:10. He returned to the Lord and began writing C ...
"The Book of God was his chief study and his divinest delight; his Bible lay before him night and day."-Isaac Watts on Sir John Hartopp
JOY TO THE WORLD While some consider Joy to the World the most powerful and dynamic Christmas carol of all time, it was written by a most unlikely man. Isaac Watts, a short, sickly, strange-looking man, was one of the most innovative Christian musicians in history! Born in 1674 in Southampton, England, Isaac only grew to be five feet tall. As an adult, his large head, small eyes, and oversized wig made him look odd and belied the genius and inspiration that was in him. Even as a boy, Watts displayed a great aptitude for languages, learning Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and French by the time he was thirteen. He had the heart and mind of a poet and began writing poetry as a small child. Raised in a strong Christian home, the training he received in the Bible and theology would one day greatly enrich the whole world. In Protestant churches of Watts' day, psalms from the Bible were mostly sung in the church services. Teenaged Isaac was frustrated with the archaic tunes and the mediocre lyrics of religious music. His ...
I know who wrote the song Joy to the world it was Isaac Watts his story was: Isaac make fun of every hymn that king David wrote hiis father said if he can make a better hymn than david he accepted his father's 1712, some of his friends invited him to spend several weeks in their home, recovering from an illness.He stayed with them for 36 years he published a volume based in biblical Psalms.As Watts studied he fund Psalms 98 he thought of the Christmas story.He combined 5 verses and came out in his ersion of Psalms 98 joy to the world the Lord has come let earth received her king let every heart prepare him room and heaven and nature sing.
Isaac Watts songs include these: The TEN COMMANDMENTS out of the Old Testament put into short Rhime for Children. Exod. 20. 1. Thou shalt have no more Gods but me. 2. Before no idol bow thy knee. 3. Take not the Name of God in vain: 4. Nor dare the Sabbath Day profane. 5. Give both thy parents honour due. 6. Take heed that thou no murder do. 7. Abstain from words and deeds unclean: 8. Nor steal, though thou art poor and mean. 9. Nor make a wilful lie, nor love it. 10. What is thy neighbour's, dare not covet. The Sum of the Commandments out of the New Testament. Matt. 22. 37. With all thy Soul love God above; And as thyself thy Neighbour love.

Funny Quote: "People who think they know everything are a great annoyance to those of us who do." By: Isaac Asimov
Roses grow on thorns and honey wears a sting..-Isaac Watts 1674-1748
Some persons believe everything that their kindred, their parents, and their tutors believe. The veneration and the love which they have for their ancestors incline them to swallow down all their opinions at once, without examining what truth or falsehood there is in them. Men take their principles by inheritance, and defend them as they would their estates, because they are born heirs to them.-Isaac Watts 1674-1748
Joy to the World! Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth; break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises. Psalm 98:4 Recommended Reading Psalm 98 It might surprise you to know that when Isaac Watts wrote "Joy to the World," he wasn't thinking of Christmas. He had been studying Psalm 98 and contemplating the millennial reign of Christ. When Jesus comes again, He will establish a thousand-year reign on earth, and heaven and nature will sing. Fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains will repeat the sounding joy. Only during the Millennium, which comes after the second advent of Christ, will the words to "Joy to the World" really be fulfilled. The Millennium will be an earthly foretaste of the New Heavens and New Earth, which will be our eternal home. If you want to know what the Millennium will be like, read passages like Revelation 20 and Isaiah 11. This is earth's future. When you hear now of wars and rumors of war, and when you despair over the coarsening of society, and when you worry about global ...
“JESUS shall reign where’er the sun Does his successive journeys run, His kingdom stretch from shore to shore Till moons shall wax and wane no more. Behold the islands with their kings, And Europe her best tribute brings; From north and south the princes meet To pay their homage at his feet. There Persia, glorious to behold, There India shines in eastern gold, And barb’rous nations at his word Submit and bow, and own their Lord…” ~ in “Hymns Based on Psalms” by 18th c. English theologian and writer Isaac Watts, one notes Persia as an integral part of Asian civilization as well as its regal symbolism since antiquity despite brutal foreign invasions… which also underlines the motivation behind this page in wondering why do 21st c. institutions and writers ignore and/or misrepresent Iran’s legacy such as mislabeling Iranian arts and architecture as nonsensical Islamic???... as far as the hymn, note how Jesus is associated with the Sun… we’ve discussed Iranian Mithra (ancient Aryan divin ...

I pray you continue to live the message of the cross even after Easter Sunday. You can do that by taking every opportunity to share the gospel with those around you. Share the message of the cross - the forgiveness of our sins with those that have hurt you. Forgiveness is something we don't like to think about or discuss. But the truth is Jesus died for our sins, including the sin of anger and unforgiveness. The gift of our forgiveness was given through the shedding of His blood. He was and continues to be the ultimate example of forgiveness. Please feel the love God has for you. Do you know deep within your heart how special you are to Him? He gave His Son's life for you. We need to learn how to give the gift of forgiveness to others. Christ did that for us! Holding on to anger, resentment, ...
Prepare for Holy Week and Easter by experiencing a hymn that powerfully conveys the meaning of the Cross--and was one of the most important hymns ever written, focusing for the first time on the personal relationship between believer and Savior. Even Charles Wesley thought more of it than any of his own thousands of hymns! Click below to explore the text and the music, and hear outstanding performances to four different tunes for Isaac Watts' immortal "When I Survey the Wondrous Cross."
Thy Word is everlasting truth;How pure is every page!That Holy Book shall guide our youth And well support our age. - Isaac Watts.
When the Eternal bows the skies To visit earthly things, With scorn divine he turns his eyes From towers of haughty kings. He bids his awful chariot roll Far downward from the skies, To visit every humble soul, With pleasure in his eyes. – Isaac Watts –
"Do not hover always on the surface of things; but penetrate into the depth of matters.". - Isaac Watts.

Sounds like Isaac Watts knew more about God than most modern songwriters.
Sounds like Isaac Watts' salvation experience was much deeper than ♬ "just a little talk with Jesus makes it right."
Chuck McKnight: But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world. (Galatians 6:14) Isaac Watts revolutionized Christian music. In the early days of the Reformation, many hymns were written, such as “A Mighty Fortress Is Our God” by Martin Luther. But within 100 years, the majority of Protestant congregations had limited their singing to mostly Psalms. While he certainly agreed with singing the Psalms, Watts also believed that Christians ought to create original compositions of praise. And so he did, penning over 600 hymns in his lifetime. His tendency to write songs based on personal feelings was quite controversial at the time, and it caused many well-meaning Christians to avoid his music. Yet today he is recognized as the “father of English hymnody.” Of all his hymns, perhaps the most beautiful expression of praise is “When I Survey the Wondrous Cross.” I’m hardly the first to think this. Theolog ...

With the New Year, it's a good time for making resolutions. Here's a great quote that helps explain why making goals is so important. "Most people creep into the world and know no reason why they're there but to consume corn and fish only to leave behind an empty dish." Sir Isaac Watts If you've made goals for this year, congratulations. You're among the minority who make them. Conservative estimates have shown that less than 40 percent of the population make them. It's as low as 4 percent. The rest of the world are like rudderless ships drifting aimlessly in life. They just go around with just a taking mindset. You who have goals have direction. You are out there to make a difference. My hope for everyone here is to take the next step and get those goals accomplished.
ew watt the heck...watts wrong with u!!! Where are u! GET OUT GET OUT GET OUT!
I'll not willingly offend,. Nor be easily offended;. What's amiss I'll strive to mend,. And endure what can't be mended. -Isaac Watts
Under the shadow of Thy throne Thy Saints have dwelt secure; sufficient is Thine arm alone, and our defense is secure. Isaac Watts
Starting the New Year off right... right now I'm listening to "Joy to the World". (and I mean Three Dog Night, not Isaac Watts)
COUNTING OUR DAYS – THE REVD PROF KONYINSOLA AJAYI S.A.N. “Give me the wings of faith to rise within the veil, and see the saints above, how great their joys, how bright their glories be.” † 1. Why will anyone want wings of faith to rise to see Jerusalem, the city paved in gold, where those who like stars appear washed in dazzling white with the blood of the Worthy Lamb? What if you were indeed transported and allowed to see as John did what the Holy City looks like? Will that make you long for the glory of paradise; for eternal life by the river feeding the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden? Will that make your heart leap for joy for that room in the Father’s house prepared specially for you through the grace of Christ our Savior and Advocate – going by the gospel according to John 14:1 – 7? 2. The opening hymn to this exhortation, are rousing words about which it has been said bring many to tears for so deeply moving the hearers and singers to total surrender, ready to take off the garme ...

LET EMMERSON CONTINUE TO DO HIS TRADE... My personal take on Emmerson's new music attacking this government is simple: laden in the first stanza of Isaac Watts' famous poem, "Let dogs delight to bark and bite, For God has made them so..." It was Emmerson who sang 'Bumbuna light pass di world don'; but when this government made it a reality, he never sang back to correct himself... It was Emmerson who, just after one year of the APC coming back to power, sang 'yesterday better pass tiday'; but the people saw the developments taking place in the country and countered him with a first-ballot re-election of the APC last year... Now Emmerson is saying only Temnes are employed by this government... Well, Dr. Kadie Sesay is a Temne, but she is not employed by this government... Moijueh Kai Kai, AWOL's 'Minister of the Year', is not a Temne... My boss at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, Hon. JB Dauda, is not a Temne... My Permanent Secretary, Deputy Secretary, and nearly 90% of the civil servants I work with are ...
Not all the outward forms on earth nor rites that God has giv'n, nor will of man nor blood, nor birth can raise a soul to heaven. Isaac Watts
Acquaint yourself with your own ignorance - Isaac Watts
Wonderful celebration of the life of Billy Williams today. Probably one of the largest crowds ever gathered at Zion Hill First Baptist Church. He had served as a county commissioner, the first African-American elected to public office in Polk County. He knew everybody, and everybody knew him. Active member and deacon at Zion Hill. Excellent service--some of the best congregational singing I've ever heard, and first time in a long time that I've heard "lining out" hymns (the song leader sings out a line of the hymn, congregation repeats it)--something one rarely hears other than in some black churches and Primitive Baptist churches. That's the way to sing those grand old Isaac Watts hymns like the one we sang today: Father, I stretch my hands to thee / No other help I know, / If thou withdraw thyself from me, / Ah, whether shall I go? Magnificent hymn sung well. There's no doubt about where Marvin Williams learned to sing!
