World War Eleven............
YOUNG PEOPLE CANNOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ANY MORE BECAUSE HISTORY IS NO LONGER TAUGHT AS A REQUIRED SUBJECT IN PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS.
Theodore " Dutch " J. Van Kirk was the navigator on the "Enola Gay" when it dropped the bomb at Hiroshima , Japan, and is the last surviving member of the crew. This really happened.
Dutch was asked to speak at a grammar school this past week.The young teacher introduced him by saying the speaker was a veteran of World War Eleven (as in WWII).
Dutch stood up and walked out of the school without saying a word. End of story..

The blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. 1 John 1:7, NKJV
The world is filled with people who struggle with guilt and a sense of failure. Oh, to live life over and to live it right! They stream into the offices of psychologists and psychiatrists, longing for relief from a wounded conscience. God loves and wants to forgive. Christ’s death on the cross paid the penalty of sin. We can know relief—if we turn to Christ and trust Him. There is no other remedy; there is none other needed. —Donald L. Norbie
Lord, I believe Thy precious blood,
Which, at the mercy seat of God,
Forever doth for sinners plead,
For me, e’en for my soul, was shed.—N. Z.

I am that bread of life. John 6:48
The Lord Jesus is the beautiful fulfilment of the type seen in the manna in the wilderness (Ex. 16).
It came from heaven—He came from heaven (1 Cor.15:47).
It was small—He humbled Himself (Phil. 2:8).
It was round—He is the eternal Son of God (Rev. 1:8).
It was white—He is righteous (1 John 3:5).
It was sweet—”Taste and see that the Lord is good” (Ps. 34:8).
It had to be eaten—Christ must be received by faith (John 1:12-13).
It was sufficient for all—Christ is our sufficiency (2 Cor. 3:5).
Truly, the Lord Jesus is manna become Man! —Rex Trogdon
It makes the wounded spirit whole, and calms the troubled breast;
‘Tis manna to the hungry soul, and to the weary rest. —John Newton
Ye shall tell my father of all my glory. Genesis 45:13
I'll never forget a lady telling me about the visitors and sympathizers who shared stories and accolades of her father at the funeral home after his passing. She said, "I already knew how wonderful he was; nothing they said could have made me love him any more or love him any less, but it was so good to hear all that they said." Remember Jesus today; tell the Father of all His glory, grace and goodness to you. --R.M.B.
Praise the Saviour, ye who know Him;
Who can tell how much we owe Him?
Gladly let us render to Him
All we are and have. --Thomas Kelly

Take your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love…and offer him there as a burnt offering. Genesis 22:2
Are we tempted sometimes to think that the sacrifices God asks us to make are not fully appreciated by Him? Not so. God could have told Abraham to take “Isaac.” Instead He says, “your son“—his heir; “your only son“—if he were gone there would be no other; “Isaac“—whose name reminded Abraham of his supernatural birth; and finally, “whom thou love“—evoking all the yearning of a father’s loving heart. God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. —D. Logan
Faith hearkens to God, and believes what He says;
His gifts it receives, His commands it obeys;
With the promise its stay, and the precept its guide,
It is faith to obey and the Lord’s to provide. —W. Blane
Pre Thanksgiving talk. Listen up Ross. When the family comes over for Thanksgiving, it is literally going to be raining food. People drop things. I am talking turkey, mashed potatoes, dressing, gravy, corn, rolls and pie.
So stay alert and be ready
The communion of Saints
Read 1John 1:1-7 ...we have fellowship one with another.... 1John 1:7
The Apostles' Creed, though never seen nor written by the Apostles themselves, summarizes some of the cardinal truths of the Bible. Among other things it states, "I believe in the communion of saints." That there is such a unique fellowship which binds believers together cannot be denied. (See Eph. 4:4; 1Cor. 10:17; and 1Cor. 12:12-27). As members of Christ's mystical Body, we are united by His blood through the operation of the Holy Spirit. This unity goes much farther than merely standing next to one another in a formal service, or having our names placed side by side upon some church roll. There is a fundamental, organic relationship between all born-again people which, as one dear old lady used to say, "is. better felt than felt."
I shall never forget the communion of saith I experienced at one time with a man whom I never actually met and with whom I never ha d word of conversation! It happened while I was traveling on a train between Chicago and Grand Rapids. In the dining car after bowing my head as usual to silently ask a blessing before I ate, I opened my eyes to see several passengers smirking at me as though I were some oddity. This did not bother me, for I know that "this world is not a friend to grace." However, as I glanced across the car, I saw a young man with a beaming smile nodding his approval. He could not fight his way down the crowded aisle to shake my hand, but he reached into his pocket, took out a little Testament and waived it at me, while his lips moved in a silent, "Amen." In that moment I enjoyed the fellowship of the saints in a real and intimate way! If you have experienced the love that bathes your heart at such precious moments of communion, then you have another Heaven-sent token of assurance concerning your own salvation, for John tells us, "We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren". (1John 3:14)! --H.G.B.
Blest be the tie that bindsOur hearts in Christian love;The fellowship of kindred mindsIs like to that above.--J. Fawcett
"If God is your Father through Jesus Christ, then you will know and feel that all of His children are your brothers and sisters."
