A little side-thought for today.
Much of what people believe to be true is in error.
Some is insignificant.
Much is important.
Today is an example.
Not a big deal, but the actual day of the official vote of the Second Continental Congress for separation of the Colonies from Britain occurred on July 2, 1776.
Read what John Adams wrote to his wife the next day…
The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.
Here is a more detailed explanation…yes, I know it is the Washington Post, but this article is correct.
Much of what we have been taught about history is not true.
Do the research.
You will be amazed.
This is nothing new.
A serious example is found in the Word…
But Jesus answered and said to them,
“You are mistaken, not understanding the Scriptures nor the power of God.
The Sadducees had sought to entrap Jesus with a hypothetical question.
This was Jesus’ response.
They were wrong.
They were wrong in two ways.
They did not understand the Scriptures.
They knew the Scriptures…they spent huge portions of the day and of their lives “knowing” the Scriptures. Yet, they were in error. They did not understand.
One can know and yet not understand.
Then, they did not now the power of God.
I believe this is a succinct synopsis of the state of the western church.
We do not understand the Scriptures.
We do not understand the power of God.
Most do not know the Scriptures.
Most have never experienced the power of God.
The date of a celebrating of a declaration?
No big deal.
The Scripture and the power of God?
Know the Word.
Manifest the power of God.
