Fire In The Belfry!!
July 4, 2000

Our Thoughts:

Now that I have you attention with the 'catchy title'.....it's July 4th, Independence Day in America, and time for fireworks. In fact, my husband, daughter and her children have been out tonight, lighting and enjoying them, since they won't be here at dark tomorrow night. July 4 and Labor Day are our main "fire" works days!! Notice, I said fire. Hopefully, we will have no fires started with the fireworks, since most things are dry around here, and no rain is in sight.

Today, as you enjoy Independence Day, hopefully you will have the 'fire of God' within your bones!! I grew up with the term "on fire for God". Never really knew what it meant, but, now I know, when you have the Holy Spirit within you, you certainly have the 'fire and power' of the Lord God Almighty!

God's Thoughts:

Luke 3:16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:

Our Cup:

Heavenly Father, I pray that each of us has the fire of God within us today. We praise you for the sweet Holy Spirit that resides in each one of us. In Jesus name, I pray. Amen.

All Scriptures are taken from the King James Version of the Holy Bible.

1 - 2 and 1/2 pound bag of Tyson boneless chicken breasts
1 - 8 oz. bottle Wishbone Ranch
1 - 8 oz. bottle Wishbone Robusto Italian

Thaw chicken and place in a large bowl. Pour the Ranch and Italian dressings over the chicken. Cover and let sit in refrigerator for 1 hour. Remove from fridge and slowly mix the chicken around to get both flavors throughout the breasts.

Return to the refrigerator for at least another hour or two. (MAY be done overnight.... more flavor).

Turn up your grill..... add the chicken and watch the magic.. The combination of both the Ranch and Italian gives a unique, wonderful taste to these tender breasts.

2. A lump or thickening in the wallet or bank account, without regard for the priorities of God or the needs of others.

3. A sore feeling of anger or resentment that persists and does not heal.

4. A change in the prayer life and attendance at worship from regular to irregular.

5. A feeling of hoarseness or uneasiness when matters related to God and Jesus and his church are mentioned.

Forrest Gump dies & goes to Heaven. He is met by St. Peter, but the pearly gates are closed. Forrest approaches and St. Peter says, "Well, Forrest, It's certainly good to see you because we've heard a lot about you. Unfortunately Heaven is filling up fast so we started giving an entrance examination to everyone. You will need to pass before you can get into Heaven.

Forrest responds, "It shore is good to be here in Heaven, St. Peter. I was looking forward to this but nobody ever told me about an entrance exam. I sure hope the test isn't too hard: life was a big enough test as it was!"

St. Peter goes on, "Yes, I know Forrest, and I'm sorry, but the test I have for you is only three questions. First, what days of the week begin with the letter T? Second, how many second are there in a year? And third, what is God's first name?"

Forrest goes away and returns the next day. St. Peter says "Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, please tell me your answers".

Forrest says, "Well, the first one, 'how many days of the week begin with the letter T, is an easy one. That'd be 2, Today & Tomorrow." The saint's eyes open wide & he exclaims "Forrest! That's not what I was thinking, but...you do have a point and I didn't specify, so I'll give you credit for the answer".

"How about the next one?" says St Peter. "How many seconds in a year?" "Now that one's harder", says Forrest, "but I guess the only answer can be twelve". Astounded, St Peter says"Twelve! Twelve! Forrest, how did you come up with twelve seconds in a year?" Forrest says "Well, shucks, there's gotta be twelve, January second, February second, March second...."

"Hold it" interrupts St Peter. "I see where you're goin with it. And I guess I se your point, though that wasn't quite what I had in mind, But I'll give you credit for that one too. Let's go on with the next question. Can you tell me God's first name?" Forrest replied "Andy"...when St Peter asked how in the world he came up with the name Andy, Forrest replied, "in the Song - 'Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me'..."

A word or two from...


‘Left Behind’ Author Launches School of Prophecy

Passengers aboard a Boeing 747 en route to Europe suddenly disappear. Nothing remains except their rumpled piles of clothes and their belongings. All over the world – in a flash – millions of others disappear. Terror and chaos break out worldwide as the cataclysm unfolds. For those who are left behind, the apocalypse has just begun.

Tim LaHaye School of Prophecy

<((< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((< -- <((<


When I have sinned, wrote a pious soul, I feel chastisement will fall upon me, and as if I could hide myself from God's Eye. I shrink into myself, and then I pray, I pray, and the chastisement not being sent, I again expand.

Chastisement is like a stone threatening to crush me; Prayer is the hand that withholds it while I make atonement.

Oh! how can those live peacefully who never pray?

By Charlotte M. Yonge - 1880

That's a Roundup from Barbara's Entourage for this week.
"Head knowledge makes you smart; heart knowledge makes you HIS!"



1 Timothy 1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.
