A Blast from the Past: Ted Crosnoe on Isaiah 9

I hope something that I do or say will cause you to see my heavenly Father because that is the important mission. My earthly father, Ted Crosnoe, was a bible teacher; I am taking this opportunity to share a few of his teachings.  I am experimenting with Sound Cloud as a place to store some of his work.  Let me know how you like it.  I hope you enjoy and appreciate how much he loved the Lord and His Word.

This one is on Isaiah 9. It was given back in the 1960s at a bible study that met at a church before evening services.  It was recorded on cassette tapes and had two sides but the whole thing is approximately 52 minutes in length (side A + side B).

Isaiah 9 King James Version (KJV)

Nevertheless the dimness shall not be such as was in her vexation, when at the first he lightly afflicted the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, and afterward did more grievously afflict her by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, in Galilee of the nations.

The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

Thou hast multiplied the nation, and not increased the joy: they joy before thee according to the joy in harvest, and as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

For thou hast broken the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder, the rod of his oppressor, as in the day of Midian.

For every battle of the warrior is with confused noise, and garments rolled in blood; but this shall be with burning and fuel of fire.

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.

The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

And all the people shall know, even Ephraim and the inhabitant of Samaria, that say in the pride and stoutness of heart,

10 The bricks are fallen down, but we will build with hewn stones: the sycomores are cut down, but we will change them into cedars.

11 Therefore the Lord shall set up the adversaries of Rezin against him, and join his enemies together;

12 The Syrians before, and the Philistines behind; and they shall devour Israel with open mouth. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

13 For the people turneth not unto him that smiteth them, neither do they seek the Lord of hosts.

14 Therefore the Lord will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.

15 The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.

16 For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

17 Therefore the Lord shall have no joy in their young men, neither shall have mercy on their fatherless and widows: for every one is an hypocrite and an evildoer, and every mouth speaketh folly. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

18 For wickedness burneth as the fire: it shall devour the briers and thorns, and shall kindle in the thickets of the forest, and they shall mount up like the lifting up of smoke.

19 Through the wrath of the Lord of hosts is the land darkened, and the people shall be as the fuel of the fire: no man shall spare his brother.

20 And he shall snatch on the right hand, and be hungry; and he shall eat on the left hand, and they shall not be satisfied: they shall eat every man the flesh of his own arm:

21 Manasseh, Ephraim; and Ephraim, Manasseh: and they together shall be against Judah. For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still.

National Day of Prayer in Bartlesville Was a Solemn Assembly with a Spirit of Humility

National Day of Prayer 2015

Pastors from all over the city led prayers over various topics from Marriage to Business, to Media and more. Together we prayed out loud a prayer of repentance – chilling in it’s scope. While I have attended the day of prayer events in the past and even called people to join in —  this time there was something different in the air. I don’t know if people realize how much trouble we are in as a nation, but they seemed to. There was a spirit of humility in the air, a sense of urgency to get it right, a calling that we must beseech the Lord for His grace and mercy in this time.  We have failed to do the things necessary to protect this nation in this hour.  We do not know if there is time to turn things around, but we do know the solutions are beyond our abilities.  We will need the intervention of the Lord God Almighty every step of the way.

Why you should attend!  Senator Dahm’s endorsement comes out as those of us who are delegates head to OKC for the convention this weekend.  If you are a delegate, please make every effort to be there on time and cast your vote for Randy Brogdon!  If you are not a delegate, please contact a delegate and ask them to support Randy Brogdon and tell them why it is important!  This election will set the tone for future elections.  Many want to see a more positive grassroots orientation standing on principle and reaching out to all.  Wnen we lead with the limited government message and put feet to our conversation, we grow and win!  You may visit the convention as a guest if you wish.

Sandra Crosnoe

Every vote counts and as you well know leadership matters.  I believe that Randy Brogdon will lead with a message that stands on principle and the basic tenets of our constitution.  I believe he will both grow the party and unify us by his style, his principles and his message.  He is articulate, has a strong work ethic, is a successful businessman, and above all a gracious gentleman to all he meets.  As cofounder of R3publicans, an Oklahoma precinct chair, an alternate delegate to the Republican National Convention in 2012, and an Oklahoma Grassroots activist, Randy Brogdon has my whole-hearted endorsement for Oklahoma Republican Party State Chair.

Thank you for your service and your time as a delegate and an activist!

For Life and Liberty,

Sandra Crosnoe for Oklahoma R3publicans

Happy Pi Day 2015 – Celebrating 3.1415926

Pi day is celebrated each year on March 14th

This year I asked the question online who discovered pi and found there was no easy answer.  It has been an unfolding revelation through the ages as people have taken it to more and more places usually when they had nothing better to do and later letting computers do it for them.  If you want to read more about all that here is a wikipedia link to get started, but Archimedes is mentioned early on and Sir Isaac Newton also.  However, no one person seems to get the credit for the ‘discovery’.

The first recorded algorithm for rigorously calculating the value of π was a geometrical approach using polygons, devised around 250 BC by the Greek mathematician Archimedes.[30]

Isaac Newton used infinite series to compute π to 15 digits, later writing “I am ashamed to tell you to how many figures I carried these computations”.[52]

On Facebook, my friend Joseph Hebert pointed out that this is a very special year for pi day as you look at the opening digits you will see that we have a special instant.  Wonder if that is AM or PM?

“…But this time there will be a pi instant.

3.14.15 9:26:53.5897…

There will be an instant between 09:26:53 and 09:26:54 that will be the perfect pi moment.”

Snowing Seriously

I thank Susan White for singing this song for me through the years.

As I was watching the snowflakes fall recently, I heard her singing it in my spirit.  I always tear up when I hear this song or even just think about it.  I take that as a good thing, a soft spirit turned toward the Lord in the moment.  I share it with you in the hopes that it ministers to you as well!  Turn your eyes to Him and watch the snowflakes fall in your heart~

 

snowflake wallpaper softenedSNOWFLAKES     240

I once read in a poem, when snow covers the earth

That it hides the world’s scars and gives nature new birth

And they say when a man turns from sin to the Lord,

That forgiveness like snow covers him evermore.

 

CHORUS

And somewhere it’s snowing, see the soft drifting downsnowflake1

As the snowflakes surrender to the hardening ground.

Like the good grace of Jesus that now covers our sins.

In the kingdom of heaven, it’s snowing again.

 

smowflake2And it’s told that the angels lift their hearts and rejoice

When one traveler turns homeward from his way to the Lord’s.

If somewhere someone’s turning, he’s given his all

Then God’s grace, like snow, is beginning to fall.

 

CHORUS   And somewhere it’s snowing, see the soft drifting downsnowflake3

As the snowflakes surrender to the hardening ground.

Like the good grace of Jesus that now covers our sins.

In the kingdom of heaven, it’s snowing again.

Recommended Reading: A Government of Wolves by John W. Whitehead

Forced Blood Draws, DNA Collection and Biometric Scans: What Country Is This?

By John W. Whitehead 
February 24, 2015

The Fourth Amendment was designed to stand between us and arbitrary governmental authority. For all practical purposes, that shield has been shattered, leaving our liberty and personal integrity subject to the whim of every cop on the beat, trooper on the highway and jail official. The framers would be appalled.”—Herman Schwartz, The Nation

Our freedoms—especially the Fourth Amendment—are being choked out by a prevailing view among government bureaucrats that they have the right to search, seize, strip, scan, spy on, probe, pat down, taser, and arrest any individual at any time and for the slightest provocation.

AGOW_SMALL

Forced cavity searches, forced colonoscopies, forced blood draws, forced breath-alcohol tests, forced DNA extractions, forced eye scans, forced inclusion in biometric databases—these are just a few ways in which Americans are being forced to accept that we have no control over what happens to our bodies during an encounter with government officials.

You may obtain the book online via Amazon.com (click on the pic).
