The Man in the GlORY

I wake in the morning of His love,
Who is living for me in the glory above;
Ev'ry minute expecting He'll call me away,
And that keeps me bright all the rest of the day;
But the moments speed forward, and on comes the noon,
Yet still I am singin, "He'll come for me soon";
And thus I am watching from morning to night,
And pluming my wings to be ready for flight!
There's a Man in the Glory I know very well,
I have known Him for years, and his goodness can tell,
One day in His mercy He knocked at my door,
And seeking admission, knocked many times o'er,
But when I went to him, and stood face to face,
and listened a while to His story of grace,
How He suffered for sinners, and put away sin,
I heartily thankfully welcomed Him in.
We have lived on together a number of years, and
that's why I have neither doubtings nor fears.
My sins are all hid in the depths of the sea; they were
carried down there by the man on the tree.
I am often surprised why the lip should be curled,
When I speak of my Lord to the man of the world,
And I notice with sorrow his look of disdain,
When I tell him that Jesus is coming again.
He seems so content with his houses and gold,
While despising the ark, like the people of old, and yet at
His coming I'm sure he would flee,
like the man in the garden, who ate ate of the tree.
I cannot but think it is foolish of souls, to put all
their money in "bags that have holes".
To find in the day that is coming apace,
how lightly they valued the riches of grace.
As fond as I am of His work in the field,
I would leave go the plough, I would put on a sheild.
The weapons of service I would put on the shelf,
and the sword and its scabbard, to be with himself;
but I'll work on with pleasure His fruit may review -
is the Man in the Glory a stranger to you?
A stranger to Jesus what do you not know?
He is washing poor sinners much whiter than snow?
He you lived in a land where the Bible's unknown,
That you don't know th Man who is now on the Throne!
O,did you but know half HiS beauty and power,
you would not be a stranger in half an hour!
I have known him known him so long that I'm able to say
The very worst sinner He'll not turn away,
the question of sin I adorning see -
the Man in the Glory has settled for me.
And as to my footsteps, whatever the scene
The Man in the Glory is keeping clean;
and therefore I'msinging from morming to night,
The Man in the Glory is all my delght.

Medical theories on the cause of death in crucifixion Matthew W Maslen and Piers D Mitchell

INTRODUCTION Crucifixion may be defined as a method of execution by which a person is hanged, usually by their arms, from a cross or similar structure until dead. It has been used in many parts of the world and in many time periods; but is perhaps best known today as a cruel method of social control and punishment in the Roman Empire around 2000 years ago 1 (pp 22-3). In modern times, the medical profession has shown considerable interest in crucifixion. The typical aim of articles by this group has been to determine how crucified individuals actually died; and they often focus on the case of Jesus of Nazareth. Since Stroud's book of 1847, 2 at least 10 different theories have been proposed ( Table 1 ), and many more articles have been published suggesting various combinations of these theories. The 10 examples referenced in Table 1 have been chosen merely as representing the wide difference of opinion in the published literature: it is not an exhaustive lis

What is TULIP in Calvinism? by Matt Slick

The TULIP of Calvinism is the acronym which represents the five primary points which represent Calvinism : Total depravity, Unconditional election, Limited atonement, Irresistible grace, and Perseverance of the saints. Hence, they are called the five points of Calvinism. The five points "emerged from the Synod of Dort (1618– 19)." 1 "The system of Calvinism adheres to a very high view of scripture and seeks to derive its theological formulations based solely on God’s word. It focuses on God’s sovereignty, stating that God is able and willing by virtue of his omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence, to do whatever He desires with His creation. It also maintains that within the Bible are the following teachings: That God, by His sovereign grace predestines people into salvation; that Jesus died only for those predestined; that God regenerates the individual where he is then able and wants to c
