The Heart of Home - By Martha Snell Nicholson

Homecoming into the Father's House by Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller

The Heart of Home

Hebrews 12:2  Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith...

It isn't the house that makes it home,
but the people living there,
The dear ones who daily walk with us,
And our joys and sorrows share.

To the traveler who returns, the lights
Of home are a beckoning star;
And his heart leaps up with joy at a glimpse
Of those who await him there.

A house is but wall and roof and floor,
But the heart of the home is love.
As it is on earth, so must it be
In those palaces up above.

The mansion He built for me is tall,
And as fair as fair can be;
But it isn't the house for which I'll strain
My longing eyes - it is HE!

by Martha Snell Nicholson

John 14:2-3  In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.

1 John 3:2-3  Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is. And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself, even as he is pure.

Judging, Being "Nice", and Final Authority

Jude 1:16 These are murmurers, complainers, walking after their own lusts; and their mouth speaketh great swelling words, having men's persons in admiration because of advantage.

2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

There was a good deal of contention that arose about my recent article on the Duggars. I do not usually think it necessary to defend my position on things. Usually, if I feel that I have explained myself clearly enough but readers are still tying themselves in knots over what I wrote, I figure I can't help them much more. Indeed, one lady who made comments in social media appeared to have either not read my article or she missed the point entirely because she accused me of things that were exactly the opposite of what I was trying to teach. If they write to me personally with questions I have answered them at times. I think and hope that I am following the example of Jesus Christ in this since He did not always go to the trouble of explaining Himself to the general group, even when there were people who misunderstood Him.

In this case, however, I think there are a few things that should be pointed out, and perhaps explained more thoroughly, since they are issues on which I have not written before.

Evening Song - Behold Our God

Ezekiel 44:4  Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD: and I fell upon my face.

Isaiah 40:18  To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto him?

Isaiah 40:25-26  To whom then will ye liken me, or shall I be equal? saith the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold who hath created these things, that bringeth out their host by number: he calleth them all by names by the greatness of his might, for that he is strong in power; not one faileth.
