John G. Patton Missionary To The New Hebrides

John G. Patton Missionary To The New Hebrides

I’m going to quote from what I read the other day in this book.

“My dear young wife, Mary Ann Robson, — daughter of Peter Robson, Esquire, a well-known and highly esteemed gentleman, at Coldstream on the Borders, — and I were landed on Tanna on the 5th November, 1858, in excellent health and full of all tender and holy hopes. On the 12th February, 1859, she was confined of a son; for two days or so both mother and child seemed to prosper, and our island-exile thrilled with joy! But the greatest of sorrows was treading hard upon the heels of that joy! My darling’s strength showed no signs of rallying. She had an attack of ague and fever, a few days before her confinement; on the third day or so thereafter it returned, and attacked her every second day with increasing severity for a fortnight. Diarrhea ensued, and symptoms of pneumonia, with slight delirium at intervals; and then in a moment, altogether unexpectedly, she died on the 3rd March. To crown my sorrows, and complete my loneliness, the dear baby-boy, whom we had named after her father, Peter Robert Robson, was taken from me after one week’s sickness, on the 20th March. Let those who have ever passed through any similar darkness as of midnight feel for me; as for all other, it would be more than vain to try to paint my sorrows! Continue reading “John G.

“He promised to give a light to him and to his sons for ever.”

In this week’s shabbat message we start out in 2 Chronicles 21:7. I was taken with this verse when reading it this past week. Particularly interesting was the light that was spoken of which God had promised to give David and his sons forever. So I decided to track this word through the Scripture to see what this light was all about. Follow along and I hope you are blessed. ~ Luke

Gazing Unto The Hills

Ps. 121:1 — I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

I’ve been reading the Psalms of Ascent and have found them very encouraging.

This is a tremendous verse. There could be any number of settings that this Psalm could fit into. A popular thought is that it was sung on a pilgrim journey to Jerusalem for a festival. That might very well be. But, let’s just think about it in the framework of someone on a hike going from point A to point B. Continue reading “Gazing Unto The Hills”

Unsung Heros

In this week’s shabbat message from Warren he relates to us the story of 4 different characters in the Bible. These 4 people fall into 2 different categories of preparedness. One group has a plan and puts it in action. The other is living life normally but is trained and ready for when the situation arises to serve God.  We start out in 1 Cor 1:26-29 to frame the message with the backdrop being God deserves all the glory. We are His ambassadors to show the world His light. Shamgar and Jael are some unsung heroes in Judges chapter 3 and 4. Normal people living normal lives that are ready and prepared to be used by God when the need arises. Be blessed!

The Plague Of Leprosy

Leviticus 14:34 – When ye be come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession …

God is giving the children of Israel instructions (Torah/Law) concerning leprosy that is found in one of their houses after the conquest of the land.

Judy and I read this verse together the other night. As we read the verse, I stopped and commented to the affect that I wondered if I would have thought: “Yep, God put this leprosy in our house honey.” Knowing me, I wouldn’t think that. Continue reading “The Plague Of Leprosy”

Torah Portion: Bo | בוא | “Come “

In this week’s Shabbat message Luke takes us though Torah portion Bo | בוא | “Come “. Exodus 10:1-13:16. This is the famous passage in which we read about the final plague on Egypt: the death of the first born. God also gives the Israelites the instructions on how to keep the first Passover so their first born will survive. The Passover is to be a perpetual festival to be observed by the Israelites forever. We also look at the word “token” in relation to the blood of the lamb being applied to the door post. From there we go into the prophets and apostolic scriptures to see where this word takes us. Shalom!
