Busy Bodies – no, it’s not a movie about zombie parents who worry they just don’t have enough time to spend with their kids ever since they died and came back.

Laughter is good for the soul. “Uncle Jim’s Dairy Farm” MST3K vintage short.

In this MST3K short from 1960, two city kids spend the summer on their uncle’s dairy farm, where they learn all about modern approaches to milk production, and also how to climb a rope in the barn.

THE GOLDEN RATIO – GOD’S DEVINE DESIGN

The Golden Ratio, or Divine Proportion, came from the source of all immaculate design in our Universe, God, the Creator!

The very cross that our Lord died on adheres to the Golden Ratio. Who else but God can Create Spiral Galaxies?

THE MARVEL OF GOD’S CREATION

And God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
Genesis 1:11‭-‬13

PEACE AND COMFORT IN TIMES OF ADVERSITY

THE TEMPLE IN HEAVEN + THE SUPERIORITY OF OUR HIGH PRIEST

It is our conviction that such language is used by the Holy Spirit in order to bring down to the level of human comprehension those heavenly realities which are not capable of any complete finite understanding, and that the eloquent words used in the sacred text are accommodated to man’s weakness and limitations, and that the marvelous realities thus described are fantastically beyond the total human knowledge of them, the very power and ability of language itself, as a means of communication, being helpless to transmit anything more than a typical or suggestive outline of the things that are in the heavens.

THE NEW AND BETTER COVENANT – Part 1

In Hebrews 8:6-7, this “new covenant” is contrasted with what is called “the first covenant,” or “the old covenant,” indicating that the new covenant would replace not merely those lesser covenants, but it would take the place of that covenant which was so great and comprehensive, overshadowing all others, that God called it the “first covenant.”

HOW CAN THESE THINGS BE? – John 3

The natural man finds it very difficult to receive spiritual things, due to his inherent preoccupation with the mechanics of them, the “how” of everything. Nicodemus’ question is therefore one of remarkable interest to all. How persistently man probes every mystery!

THE INDWELLING SPIRIT – Romans 8

The Holy Spirit is the blessed Spirit, a member of the GODHEAD, who takes up residence in Christian hearts in consequence of their being sons of God (Galatians 4:6), and in fulfillment of the apostolic promise of such an indwelling to all believers who will repent and be baptized for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38f), and is thus identifiable as the “Holy Spirit of promise” (Ephesians 1:13).

THE OLD TESTAMENT WITNESSES OF JESUS CHRIST – Romans 3:21

The verbal prophecies, numbering some 333, foretold the coming of the Messiah in such detail and clarity that hardly any phase of our Lord’s life and character was omitted.

CONCERNING SLEEP – Romans 13

Paul mentions, in Romans 13, a spiritual condition called “SLEEP,” and his call for people to AWAKEN out of it provides strong emphasis upon the dangers of such stupor.

IN CHRIST ALONE IS OUR SALVATION – 1 Corinthians 1

There are four things mentioned by Paul in 1 Corinthians 1, which belong to the Christian by virtue of his being “in Christ.” Satan, death and hell have no claim on the one who is “IN CHRIST!”
