Counsel to man and woman in or contemplating marriage

Upon no account should the marriage relation be entered upon until the parties have knowledge of the duties of a practical domestic life.

The wife should have culture of mind and manners that she may be qualified to rightly train the children that may be given her.

Many ladies accounted well-educated, having graduated with honors at some institution of learning, are shamefully ignorant of the practical duties of life…

Counsel to Children

Children and youth should begin early to seek God; for early habits and impressions will frequently exert a powerful influence upon the life and character.

Therefore the youth who would be like Samuel, John, and especially like Christ, must be faithful in the things which are least, turning away from the companions who plan evil and who think that their life in the world is to be one of pleasure and selfish indulgence.

Many of the little home duties are overlooked as of no consequence; but if the small things are neglected, the larger duties will be also…

Children a Blessing

He who gave Eve to Adam as a helpmeet … ordained that men and women should be united in holy wedlock, to rear families whose members, crowned with honor, should be recognized as members of the family above.

Children are the heritage of the Lord, and we are answerable to Him for our management of His property.

In love, faith, and prayer let parents work for their households, until with joy they can come to God saying, “Behold, I and the children whom the Lord has given me.”….

Caring for Needy Children

Many a father who has died in the faith, resting upon the eternal promise of God, has left his loved ones in full trust that the Lord would care for them.

And how does the Lord provide for these bereaved ones? He does not work a miracle in sending manna from heaven; He does not send ravens to bring them food; but He works a miracle upon human hearts, expelling selfishness from the soul and unsealing the fountains of benevolence.

He tests the love of His professed followers by committing to their tender mercies the afflicted and bereaved ones…

Building and Furnishing the Home

In the construction of buildings, whether for public purposes or as dwellings, care should be taken to provide for good ventilation and plenty of sunlight.

Churches and schoolrooms are often faulty in this respect. Neglect of proper ventilation is responsible for much of the drowsiness and dullness that destroy the effect of many a sermon and make the teacher’s work toilsome and ineffective.

So far as possible, all buildings intended for human habitation should be placed on high, well-drained ground. This will ensure a dry site….

Attitude Toward an Unbelieving Companion

Many mothers are having trials at home and are asking my counsel. One of these cases will serve to represent many.

The husband and father is not a believer, and everything is made hard for the mother in the training of her children. The husband is a profane man, vulgar and abusive in his language to her, and he teaches the children to disregard her authority.

When she is trying to pray with them, he will come in and make all the noise he can and break out into cursing God and heaping vile epithets upon the Bible……

A Powerful Christian Witness

Missionaries for the Master are best prepared for work abroad in the Christian household, where God is feared, where God is loved, where God is worshiped, where faithfulness has become second nature, where haphazard, Careless inattention to home duties is not permitted, where quiet communion with God is looked upon as essential to the faithful performance of daily duties.

Home duties should be performed with the consciousness that if they are done in the right spirit, they give an experience that will enable us to work for Christ in the most permanent and thorough manner…

A TIME FOR PRAYER

God says that He has a few people interested in His work yet many have not been reached with the message of salvation. If you have that humane heart God is pleased with you and He wills to save you by all means. God brought up Moses who bore the Ten Commandments in a palace. A time came when Moses had to leave the palace where everything was in plenty and free supply. For forty years, Moses stayed in fields and forests learning of God. God had to take Moses through lessons from which he could learn concern and care. Such lessons are hard to learn so it takes long to learn them. Have you learnt them yet?

As the days become evil, is it a good sight before God that He sees men buying expensive property, build mansions, watch and go for games on the Sabbath day (Saturday) among other things? God is coming back to destroy this world; to destroy it because it is tainted with sin. All property that we own shall be destroyed on that dreadful day when every evil person shall run, when the knees shall tremble as those of Belshazzar when he saw shining hand writing on the wall.

God just flushed us out from our comfort zone and that is why you are getting this message. Were it to be that we had what our sinful body likes, we would have had no time for God’s business but now that God loves us, we love it this way. So, as you go on with your activities, remember God. You can support us achieve the goal we are having of evangelism Consider how our children are being exposed to vices of the society at their tender age, doesn’t it bother you that you are to work for God? By holding back yet we know good, evil shall advance and we will have failed as Soldiers of the Cross. Will we let down God? God forbid. No.

Let this be our motto, ‘Whatever may, we will remember God, we will work for God. we treasure the everlasting life.’ It is a blessing having gotten education and now that we have eyes, ears and an understanding mind, Let all the people know that Jesus Christ is the resurrection and the life.

Let it be known that all men have been bought with this infinite price. By pouring the whole treasury of heaven into this world, by giving us in Christ all heaven, God has purchased the will, the affections, the mind, the soul, of every human being. Whether believers or unbelievers, all men are the Lord’s property. All are called to do service for Him, and for the manner in which they have met this claim, all will be required to render an account at the great judgment day.

It will be disappointing if you will ridicule this message. Heaven shall be grieved for they know that if we hold hands, we shall be like Moses and Aaron in the war against God’s enemies the Amalekites. Victory shall be on the side of God. Pray for us as you pray for yourself that God may give us strength to overcome many darts that Satan is hurling our way. God bless you.

WELCOME TO PERSONAL EVANGELISM 4

Manasseh the king after King Hezekiah was towed to Babylon with hooks in his nose because he had not feared God and God’s messengers. He had killed prophet Isaiah he Himself. In captivity he was thrown into prison until he repented. God restored him later after he had learnt the tough lesson. 2nd Chronicles 33:13

You are cautioned against gossip about evangelism if sacrificing to support this cause is not in your mind. Pray that the Holy Spirit may come to your hearts, and then you will wear Christ’s yoke, and bear His burden, and grow into complete union with Jesus.

Delight yourself also in the LORD; and he shall give you the desires of your heart. God bless you.
