Summary: On the radio I heard the testimony of a man that the pastor told him: WE DON'T WANT PEOPLE LIKE YOU! The man is a Christian doctor and book author today.
DON’T THROW THE BABY OUT?
By Wade Martin Hughes, Sr. Kyfingers@aol.com
We don't not accept abortion... physical or spiritual.
We have an idiomatic expression that says: DON’T THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATH WATER. It might mean don’t make the error of throwing something good away while trying to eliminate something bad. Sure we must be careful while rejecting unfavorable stuff that we reject some really good stuff.
ISAIAH REALIZES THAT SIN HAS ENTERED INTO THE CAMP AND JUDGMENT WAS COMING. SEEMS THE SYMBOLIC ISSUE IS GOD’S SPIRIT HAS CUT DOWN ALL THE TREES FROM THE MOUNTAINS AROUND. ALL THAT IS LEFT IS TREE STUMPS… IT MAY APPEAR TO THE EYES ALL IS HOPELESS… BUT GOD!!! Isaiah 11:1 And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch shall grow out of his roots:
Seems I often find myself FEELING A SERMON I COULD NEVER TEACH OR PREACH... I look into people's faces an read a history of WOE, pain, grief, SIN SCARS... And I know there is GOOD NEWS --- RESURRECTION NEWS... I FEEL A SERMON I CAN NEVER PREACH OF AMAZING GRACE...
I WAS PRAYING FOR SOME REALLY MESSED UP PEOPLE AND FAMILIES... I FELT SOMETHING REAL IN MY SPIRIT--- DO YOU REALLY CARRY ABOUT THOSE --- THEY CAN NEVER CHANGE?
Luke 6:32 For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them. 33 And if ye do good to them which do good to you, what thank have ye? for sinners also do even the same.
I love to pray. When I walk in the and listen to Bible. When I am walking outside on the road, I pray, I think I might now hear an approaching car?
HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT OF PEOPLE THAT HAVE NO ONE TO LOVE AND PRAY FOR THEM. WE MIGHT CALL THEM: THROW AWAY PEOPLE? I was praying for every cousin on both sides of my family. MY AUNT TOLD ME THERE WAS ONLY ONE REASON SHE DREADED DYING. I asked: WHY? She said: There will be no one to pray for my sons... Maybe one could have been labeled "THROW AWAY."
We must never throw any person away. Then I focused intense prayer for what many would call "throw away" people. People very scarred from all the wrong choices. I have learned scarred hands reach scarred people. God does not "throw away" any one.
God can recycle people. I have always loved "throw away" people, I dream of change in Jesus name. Never give up on yourself or on other people.
IF I ERR, MAY I ERR TO THE SIDE OF MERCY... Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
DEAD ROW PEOPLE ARE SOME MOMMA’S SON? I WAS SITTING IN A VERY SMALL ROOM, WITH A WINDOW RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. AT MIDNIGHT THE CURTAIN IN FRONT OF ME WOULD BE DRAWN... A MAN WOULD DIE BY LETHAL INJECTION TWO FEET AWAY FROM ME. I WOULD BE STANDING AT HIS RIGHT HAND... The offended family of the boy that was slain at 16 years of age would be standing at his feet. There were approximately 15 people straight across from me as state witnesses and news reporters.
ALL OF A SUDDEN A PANIC CAME OVER ME... As I was representing his mother and family, I THOUGHT I AM BEING ASSOCIATED WITH A CRIMINAL --- I AM IN THE WRONG ROOM... ALMOST INSTANTLY A GREAT INNER PEACE CAME OVER ME --- I CLEARLY FELT WITH THIS PEACE: JESUS SAID --- I AM IN THIS ROOM WITH YOU!
I immediately took off my gold cross and necklace and was holding it in my right hand. When the curtain was drawn up, I LIFTED THE CROSS BEFORE THE MAN'S EYES. HE GLANCED AT ME AND FOCUSED ON THE CROSS. That man in prison, on death row, is some mother's son, she cries herself to sleep praying for him.
THROW THE CLAY AWAY? IT IS MARRED? Thank God, the Potter does not throw away the clay. MY PRECIOUS FRIEND --- HARD TO LOVE PEOPLE ARE REAL... HURT PEOPLE HURT PEOPLE... BUT KNOW THIS: MARRED CLAY IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY --- GOD NEVER THROWS AWAY THE CLAY... MARRED: messed up, hurt, damaged, TO RUIN THE BEAUTY ---
Jeremiah 18:3 Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. 4 And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 6 O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.
