18 And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of  the trumpet, and the mountain smoking. And when the people saw it, they backed up and stood far off.

19 And they said to Moses, “Speak thou with us, and we will hear, but don't let  God speak with us, or we'll die!”

It was God's intention to bring the people up to the mountain to have a personal relationship with Him. The people chose to be too afraid to do this and told Moses they would rather have him as an intermediary.

15 What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. 

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness? 

to
15 So, should we keep sinning because we are not under the law, but under grace? Of course not! 

16 Don't you know that you become slaves to whom you choose to obey? Whether it's obeying sin which leads to death, or obeying God which leads to righteousness?

Today's work in Romans 6
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. 

13 Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. 

14 For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace.

to

12 So, don't let sin rule your physical body, obeying its passions. 

13 Neither let any part of your body become controlled by evil, but let yourselves be controlled by God, because you are now alive instead of dead, and let your bodies be instruments of righteousness for God. 

14 For sin can not control you, because ye are not under the law, but under grace.

? recorded steps yesterday.

After doing a lot of research and learning from my upline in Lilla Rose, I think I have decided (notice how certain that is, lol) to begin investing in some other things, also.

>I have a blog for homeschooling and have written a book about the subject. Though I don't really post on it very often, I am going to begin to post more often now. Also, I'm considering doing a monthly book review eNewsletter.

>As noted at the top of each of these daily posts, I am writing Bible commentaries. Some are already in print. These are being posted nearly every day. I may add a monthly Topical Bible study to this.

>I am also toying with the idea of adding a monthly newsletter to our church's site. This will just summarize the last month's activities, have a prayer list, and tell about upcoming events.

>And, of course, there is Lilla Rose. I already have a monthly newsletter for it, but it's not very good. I'm going to begin adding some natural/herbal health information to it, since I'm an amateur herbalist.

This will all be increasing my work load, but if I keep it only monthly, I think I can manage.

    The New Testament "Ups the Anti" It raises the standard. Lust is equal to adultery, as is divorce.

    Matthew 5:28 “But I say to you, That whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart.”

    Luke 16:18 - Whoever divorces his wife, and marries another, commits adultery, and whoever marries her that is divorced from her husband commits adultery.

    Matthew 5:27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, "Thou shall not commit adultery."

    28 But I say to you, That whoever shall divorce his wife, except for the cause of [the misuse of sex, adultery], causes her to commit adultery. And whoever shall marry her that is divorced commits adultery.

    2 Of course not! How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer in it? 

    3 Don't you know, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? 

    When we are baptized, it is a sign we have chosen to make Christ our Boss. This makes us part of His death, burial, and resurrection. Going down into the water symbolizes being buried in the dirt, and coming up out of the water symbolizes rising from the grave.

    Today's Hymn  Revives Us Again. Written by a man who rebelled against God during his mother's life, despite her fervent prayers for his salvation. Years later he was given the Bible of a man who had just died in his hospital, only to discover it was the same Bible his mother had given him and he had sold (his name was written on the inside cover in his mother's handwriting.) He got the point and began serving God.

    11 For in six days the I AM made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day, and so the I AM blessed the Sabbath day, and made it holy.

    God could have created the universe in one second if He wanted to. Or He could have taken billions of years. But the book of Genesis clearly says He took six days and rested the seventh.

    Does God need physical rest? No, of course not. He did this as an example of what He wanted us to do. He designed us to need this day per week of rest.

    The New Testament tells us that Jesus is our Sabbath. We are to rest in Him, cease from our work of trying to earn salvation, saving ourselves through Christ instead. The entire Sabbath day rest was an object lesson for the salvation offered by Christ.

    What about all the Old Earth theories? The ones that say Genesis wasn’t telling the truth?

    These theories (evolution, Day Age, Gap Theory) that make the universe billions of years old totally destroy this entire object lesson of the Sabbath. They make it meaningless.

    When God says here “in six days the I AM made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day:” He meant six days as we know them. No more. No less.
