Cleaned up and running smooth. Love these old machines. God does the same with us. Used, worn, Sold in the world’s market for pennies on the dollar as we set our own worth. Discarded by those we trusted, abused in the name of love. He finds and makes a bid for us, we decide as the prodigal son or daughter if we want to be restored to Him. We must count the cost of total commitment, you can’t do this restore halfway. If we accept the promise, He washes us and cleans us, covers us with the “Cloak of Right ness” so we can be with Him. Simple Gospel, no new ideas or theology. Simple message He loves the old and the young, the male the female, the pagan and the Jew, the enslaved and the free, all can be one in Christ. Galatians 3:24-27, Acts 2:, Titus 3:4-5, Ephesians 4:3-5, Romans 6 :17, Col 2.
Bought this mixer that is almost old as I am. It was dirty inside and would run somewhat, yet sounded like the gears were worn and something was loose. The thrift store accepted a few bucks donation for the mixer as is. The Dormeyer 4300 was made in Chicago in the 50s with bronze cut gears, bronze bushings and solid mechanical components that were in use before transistors, micro processors and push button computer controls.
The old testament has a history that is verifiable and will surprise most religious people who will deny the truth of history. The history of the Hebrews was told as oral traditions for many years before the written word, like most religious traditions, We must read it with the author’s glasses worn by the Hebrews who recorded Moses 600 yrs after the facts of the exodus. Seems the post 70 AD Orthodox Jews give different versions and sects as the chosen one to have or not have a “Messiah” yet hold up relics and traditions that place King Jesus in second or third place. That is why the doctrines we hear of the “Rapture” the return of Jesus and the Temple” are plain scary because the ignorant people will believe the DaVinci Code because it is popular and non threatening. Here is a Jewish female historian for the facts of history, The Old Testament. God has preserved His Word for a purpose and it might not be what you think. 1 Tim 3:15By: Amy-Jill Levine, The Great Courses Narrated by: Amy-Jill Levine You can also read The Story of Christianity, Vol. 1, Revised and Updated: The Early Church to the Dawn of the Reformation By: Justo L.

Ask for government solutions get government answers.
Sonny Reeves said to a sister on fb; America will have to believe there is a God, for 50+ years we have been told God is dead, 1967 issue of Time said so… the bible is a book of myths, shout college professors at teenagers in their sway and sometimes power, We have handed the government the “Right and Blessings ” of the “Congregation” to care for the widow and orphan, the weak and unborn, teach the young Titus 2:1-10, the shepherds are warned, Empires and nations of history do not last without God, our self-righteous days of “Manifest Destiny” and legal slavery are over in law of the land, in practice, the evil behind the curtain is still the old serpent” The poor are clogging the streets, the weak are oppressed, bought and sold on the market, the power of the earth in resources God gave us to conserve now drive the greed of men to rape the earth. Our American Indians are right in saying; you can’t eat money or oil. Without God, the nation will need both to meet the coming storms. Babylon was nice folks compared to the Romans. Can you tell we have been in a battle with the VA over my care. Could not get an MRI for 34 days and comm care lost my paperwork! Must build more F35s and bases in places we don’t belong, if we all got along we could build MRIs and train doctors and fund hospitals. Rant over VA called today and will cover my next back repair, Amen, Come Lord Jesus! 1 John 3:23
God’s Truth is the whole Truth or there is no Truth, and that is the Absolute Truth, proven by every law of physics, science, and natural life. To believe in luck, chance and charms takes more faith than we have for gravity rules if we fall. To expect God to live in a box of man’s theology is as ludicrous as to deny He is God. The message of the Gospel is clear, the one law we must obey; 1 John 3:23, What the obedience gives? Acts 5:32, Home Style, just like Jesus loves! Acts 18:8, Those former pagans of Corinth were messy, dividing over men’s names and teaching, the body suffers and sin breaks out, Paul writes; “confront the sinners, Love rules, be respectful, don’t over eat or get drunk at your “Love Feasts” of the “Lord’s Supper” Jesus sez we must “Abide”, Paul reminds “Pray without ceasing” We read those two verses in our love as maintaining “Constant Comm” with our Lord. as you learn to communicate with your Lord as your One and only “Wonderful Counselor”, do nothing to harm the Body or your body, Be Ambassadors, reconcile with your brothers and sisters, Learn and teach to “Koinonia” (Share & Care for one another)
The Church as described in Acts plus the letters in our “Canon” can describe for the visual learner a strange mix of images that change as we move forward through the ages to the high “church” model. To dig back thru history today is possible and so many have looked into the first 100-400 or so yrs of the early “church” to discover the Truth covered by years of traditions. https://youtu.be/ykH8E9wTCcQ
The “Perfect Law of Liberty” 1 John 3:23. Gal 5:14 the rest is religion if you say “Must”. Paul said it was all “Skybalon” as the Gospel is the power of God for Salvation. 1 Cor 15:3-4 Acts 5;32, The pagan gentiles of Corinth understood and acted on their belief when the heard the Word! Acts 18:8
