Be encouraged. What about that bottle of tears?
The words of our Lord are precious and bring life to our drained souls. Blessed be His name and may you know this Lord who’s promised –
Isaiah 55:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
We all love to ponder about God saving our tears in a bottle, but we never quite got the meaning. Now we can.
PJ Miller at Sola Dei Gloria had this to say
Psalm 56:8 – Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? (link)
I don’t mean to take away from the beautiful account of how the Lord values our tears and shares our sorrows. But I was taken aback at some of the items on the website. For instance, it is very Calvinist in perspective which is always a red flag. Also, what is this about? It is perplexing to me that one would consider those who believe in dispensations to be in error. Yes, there are hyperdispensationists who believe that the Lord’s Supper and water baptism are not for today, but others such as H.A. Ironside rightly divide the Word and teach on the various dispensations correctly. Sorry to create a bunny trail, but this was was disconcerting. BTW, Pink is Calvinist.)
Study of Dispensationalism
“But there is further reason, and a pressing one today, why we should write upon our present subject, and that is to expose the modern and pernicious error of Dispensationalism. This is a device of the Enemy, designed to rob the children of no small part of that bread which their heavenly Father has provided for their souls; a device wherein the wily serpent appears as an angel of light, feigning to “make the Bible a new book” by simplifying much in it which perplexes the spiritually unlearned. It is sad to see how widely successful the devil has been by means of this subtle innovation.” – by Arthur Pink
A Study of Dispensationalism
Is it any wonder we should study the bible and only consider the claims and teachings of other people in its light? 🙂 I am not a Calvinist, either.
Glad you liked the article tho.
