Sunday Go To Meeting Bun!


Guest Preacher! Charles Haddon Spurgeon

“Stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord.” — Exodus 14:13

These words contain God’s command to the believer when he is reduced to great straits and brought into extraordinary difficulties. He cannot retreat; he cannot go forward; he is shut up on the right hand and on the left; what is he now to do? The Master’s word to him is, “Stand still.” It will be well for him if at such times he listens only to his Master’s word, for other and evil advisers come with their suggestions. Despair whispers, “Lie down and die; give it all up.” But God would have us put on a cheerful courage, and even in our worst times, rejoice in His love and faithfulness.Cowardice says, “Retreat; go back to the worldling’s way of action; you cannot play the Christian’s part, it is too difficult. Relinquish your principles.” But, however much Satan may urge this course upon you, you cannot follow it if you are a child of God. His divine fiat has bid thee go from strength to strength, and so thou shalt, and neither death nor hell shall turn thee from thy course. What, if for a while thou art called to stand still, yet this is but to renew thy strength for some greater advance in due time. Precipitancy cries, “do something. Stir yourself; to stand still and wait, is sheer idleness.” We must be doing something at once—we must do it so we think—instead of looking to the Lord, who will not only do something but will do everything. Presumption boasts, “If the sea be before you, march into it and expect a miracle.” But Faith listens neither to Presumption, nor to Despair, nor to Cowardice, nor to Precipitancy, but it hears God say, “Stand still,” and immovable as a rock it stands. “Stand still“;—keep the posture of an upright man, ready for action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, “Go forward.”

  1. This Bun was timed perfectly. I needed the wisdom provided today ! Thanks LA, also i could use PRAYER from everyone to make a G-Dly choice .

    • Jan E

      I appreciate your asking for prayer, too often Christians will go it alone, I call it the Lone Ranger complex. A G-Gly choice is to be wanted above all else, may we all agree with you in prayer for Gods perfect will in your life and for you to recognize it.

      PROVERBS 3:5-7
      Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him,
      And He will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and turn away from evil.

  2. Exactly where I am today -what I must do—even though I’m deeply stressed about the whole unemployment/no job. no prospects, no help from the congregation where we used to attend ( the one where we were attending as of last week wouldn’t even include us on the prayer list), questioning my whole life, mistakes, choices, disappointments, failures, etc STAND STILL

    • Hey Randy! Be of good cheer….I don’t know what God’s answer for your problem is but I do know He does indeed have the answer!

      Did your church really say that they would not put you on their prayer list???? I am aghast! Rest assured that you are on mine and I am sure the rest of the “congregation” here say a prayer over everyone who posts!

      Remember, bad times may not always have the ending that you hoped for but they ALWAYS have an ending! Christ is in charge, relax and let him do His job! Just saw a cute post the other day, (maybe on here?)

      The Bible says “this too shall pass” It doesn’t say it will stay.

    • And mine to Randy! Who wants to be on a Laedocian list anyway!
      Provision and peace brother.

      Big prayer list tonight…

      The Cypress Tree

    • Randy they may be an “Assembly” another name for church (and assembly could be a baseball game for that matter), but do not seem to be the Body of Christ! The Body cheers in your joy and crys for your pain and help where they are able! Probably time to look for a real church. They are getting hard to find. I gave up in my area so new age or allowing it in and really barely friendly unless you are in one of the clicks. I study at Lionand Lamb Ministry (Pastor David Picos) online. Excellant teaching rightly dividing the word and caring. I know you are more than welcome on their prayer list and they will pray! I am praying for you that God would guide you and open the door where He wants you. Sometimes it’s a stepping stone to His greater plan 🙂

    • Hi Randy,
      I can symphothise with you also, my place of fellowship and gathering for worship closed its doors a few weeks ago (it took me 12mths to find one that taught biblically!). Thank God for my “cyber church” (as Elaine would say :))
      Please know you are in my prayers and remember “where two or more are gathered in My Name, there I will be.”
      God bless you.

      Looking Up

    • Try and do some Volunteer work somewhere.

      It’s very important to stay busy, and avoid Mental Depression.

      Also, maybe get involved with some T.E.A. Party projects.

      Possibly more school for a job or career change.

    • Randy, I just order a 4 CD Lecture series by Gregory Dickow Ministries:

      “Redeemed from the Curse” Excellent

      A Great Lesson seriess that talks about Deuteronomy Ch 28….”Blessings and Cursings”

      As Christians we are Grated into Israel as a Wild Branch…And we are Entitled as Adopted Sons of Abraham to those Blessings and All Promises.

      Two things that are God can’t do:

      #1. God can not Lie
      #2. God can’t break His Promises

      Claim the Blessings, in Jesus Name.

      Self Protection Prayer is good, Psalms Ch 91

      AND, Please Randy, don’t get nervous, ok. God isn’t Nervous, so why should be nervous.

      We are concerned about matters, not nervous…ok.

  3. Hi L.A., that was a very encouraging message God has directed you to so as to edify the Body! With all the doom & gloom and peril lurking everywhere we need to remember that great principle of standing/waiting on the LORD for His wisdom and guidence and definately not the worlds. Charles Spurgeon couldn’t have identified our reactions clearer! Thanks for the reminder and have a great day in the Lord! 🙂

  4. Thank you Preacher Spurgeon! How powerful is your writing! SO many today need to stand still and listen for God to say…… “Stand still,” and immovable as a rock it stands. “Stand still“;—keep the posture of an upright man, ready for action, expecting further orders, cheerfully and patiently awaiting the directing voice; and it will not be long ere God shall say to you, as distinctly as Moses said it to the people of Israel, “Go forward.”
    Thank you LA for the guest Preacher!

  5. What a wonderful admonition … a day of much activity…..such a presupposition……must appear to the presumptive as a easy way out…….I love it, it may not be popular….but I love the total value in trusting God.

  6. I need you guys again and those precious prayers. My wife was just moved to a better hospital and was told she has a 1 in 3 chance of lasting 6 months..this news came on her birthday… if she lasts 6 months the odds improve because shes in liver failure and it may regenerate if enough good liver cells are there.
    Please pray for her . PLEASE!

    • And I Faithful. I will ask for cell regeneration and peace for your soul.

      The Cypress Tree

    • bless you guys! I keep praying for the Lord to take me instead and i know that i will soon follow her if its his will to take her but she is such a better person than i am. It is a shame that one problem can ruin your life and torment those that love you so very very much.

    • Moved your wife and you to the top of my prayer list.My heart and my sympathies are with you both.Remember God works miracles my friend. God bless. Randall

    • Am praying for you and your wife. Please remember that nothing can separate us from Him. Not death nor life, nor angels nor principalities. Nothing can separate us from His wonderful love in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    • Faithfulelect , am I so sorry for the heartbreak that you must be going through right now, my heart breaks for you. Remember, you are never alone, you have many Christian brothers and sisters right here on htis blog that care deeply for you and your wife’s well being.
      I will pray for your wife and will put her on my churches prayer list which the prayer warriors pray over everyday.
      I fully expect a miracle and for God’s will to move in your wife’s behalf. I will be looking forward to your praise report in the coming weeks. God bless you brother, stay strong in Christ. He will never leave you or forsake you.

  7. L.A. Thank you & Preacher Spurgeon!!
    God’s perfect timing once again. This is exactly how I felt over the last week (going through persecution from family) could lose EVERYTHING – our business, my husband and daughter. The material things don’t matter, but if I lost my husband and daughter…… All because of a lie!!!
    God knows the Truth and I have total faith in Him.

    • My situation wreaks of demonic deception – Satan wants me to give up, but has only stirred up the warrior in me. Standing still in the hope of still standing at the end!!! (Thanks Elaine, your play on words has helped this little duck to get back on track!!)
      Blessings to all

    • I’m an electrician and my statemnt is:

      “Lies are in Series, and Truth is in Parallel”

      Open up and expose all of the Lie “circuits” with The Truth….One time.

      Lies cost money to maintain them.

    • Greetings Cypress and all; My DNA is divine having partaken in the new birth.

      My corruption was taken away when The precious Blood washed it all away……

      I a new creation, I’m a bran new man, old things have passed away, I’m born again. Praise the Lord!

      I’m bound for the Jerusalem above, to be manifested at the appearing of Christ.

      Come go with me to that Land where I’m bound, There is milk and Honey in that Land where I’m bound.

      john b

    • Well stated John thinking the same way! I am in Christ a new creation, all things are passed away and I already am sitting in the heavenlies at Jesus side positionally and waiting for the call “come up”! Iin Him and He in me! 🙂
      There is no nephilim DNA in me only the Holy Spirit, my old man/body will give way to immortality in Christ. Praise God Besides the Nephilim have not taken over all mankind yet as in the Days of Noah, but I imagine they are trying desperately to do so one day. God has another plan! 🙂 I sure never realized the extent of paganism in this world, sacred groves and wicca/wizards, satanism abounding all the while Christianity moving in that direction as the great falling away is in full progress wanting to be like Hindu, Buddah and any other pagans. Follow Ephesians, Paul’s Gospel to the Gentiles!

    • That would sure play into the “Aliens seeded the planet” theory.

      It also may explain why I have a long neck – must be decended from the Anakites.

      Even the “thought” my DNA would be related to the fallen ones gives me the creeps! Ick!!!

  8. America and many countries in the world are presently experiencing economic and social distress, natural or man made disasters. Is there a reason? Why are these thing happening? Is there Biblical solutions? Following is some research on pagan practices past and present that brought God’s wrath on the Israelites and other people. Are there things happening in America which needs to repent of?


    [14] If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

    “A sacred grove is a grove of trees of great religious importance to a particular culture. Sacred groves were most prominent in the Ancient Near East and prehistoric Europe, but feature in various cultures throughout the world. They were important features of the mythological landscape and cult practice of Celtic, Baltic, Germanic, ancient Greek, Near Eastern, Roman, and Slavic polytheism, and were also used in India, Japan, and West Africa. Examples of sacred groves include the Greco-Roman temenos, the Norse hörgr, and the Celtic nemeton, which was largely but not exclusively associated with Druidic practice. During the Northern Crusades, there was a common practice of building churches on the sites of sacred groves.
    Sacred groves feature prominently in Scandinavia. The most famous sacred grove of Northern Europe was at the Temple at Uppsala in Old Uppsala, where every tree was considered sacred – described by Adam of Bremen. The practice of blót – the sacrificial ritual in Norse paganism was usually held in lunds or sacred groves. According to Adam of Bremen, in Scandinavia, pagan kings sacrificed nine males of each species at the sacred groves every ninth year.[6]

    The Celts used sacred groves, called nemeton in Gaulish, for performing ritual animal and human sacrifices, and other rituals, based on Celtic mythology. The deity involved was usually Nemetona – a Celtic goddess. Druids oversaw such rituals. Existence of such groves have been found in Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic and Hungary in Central Europe, in many sites of ancient Gaul in France, as well as England and Northern Ireland. Sacred grove remains had been plentiful up until the 1st century BC, when the Romans attacked and conquered Gaul. One of the most well known nemeton sites is that in the Nevet forest near Locronan in Brittany, France. Gournay-sur-Aronde (Gournay-on-Aronde), a village in the Oise department of France, also houses the remains of a nemeton.[7][8]” – Wikipedia

    Some Biblical references:

    [18] And they left the house of the LORD God of their fathers, and served groves and idols: and wrath came upon Judah and Jerusalem for this their trespass.


    [1] Now when all this was finished, all Israel that were present went out to the cities of Judah, and brake the images in pieces, and cut down the groves, and threw down the high places and the altars out of all Judah and Benjamin, in Ephraim also and Manasseh, until they had utterly destroyed them all. Then all the children of Israel returned, every man to his possession, into their own cities.


    [3] For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
    [19] His prayer also, and how God was intreated of him, and all his sin, and his trespass, and the places wherein he built high places, and set up groves and graven images, before he was humbled: behold, they are written among the sayings of the seers.

    Bohemian Grove Fact Sheet

    What is the Bohemian Grove? The Bohemian Grove is a 2700 acre redwood forest, located in Monte Rio, CA. It contains accommodation for 2000 people to “camp” in luxury. It is owned by the Bohemian Club.

    What is the Bohemian Club? The Bohemian Club is a private. all male club, which is headquartered in the Bohemian building in San Francisco. It was formed in 1872 by men who sought shelter from the frontier culture (or lack of culture).

    Who are the present members? The Club has evolved into an association of rich and powerful men, mostly of this country (there are similar organizations in other countries). Some artists are allowed to join (often at reduced rates), because of their social status and entertainment value. The membership list has included every Republican U.S. president (as well as some Democrats) since 1923, many cabinet officials, and director; & CEO’s of large corporations, including major financial institutions.

    What industries are represented among the members? Major military contractors, oil companies, banks (including the Federal Reserve), utilities (including nuclear power), and national media (broadcast and print) have high-ranking officials as club members or guests. Many members are, or have been, on the board of directors of several of these corporations. You should note that most of the above industries depend heavily on a relationship with government for their profitability.

    The members stay in different camps at the Grove, which have varying status levels. Members & frequent guests of the most prestigious camp (Mandalay) include: Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, S. D. Bechtel, Jr., Thomas Watson Jr. (IBM), Phillip Hawley (B of A), William Casey (CIA). and Ralph Bailey (Dupont). George Bush resides in a less prestigious camp (Hillbillies) with A. W. Clausen (World Bank), Walter Cronkite, and William F. Buckley.

    What activities take place at the grove? The grove is the site of a two week retreat every July (as well as other smaller get-togethers throughout the year). At these retreats, the members commune with nature in a truly original way. They drink heavily from morning through the night, bask in their freedom to urinate on the redwoods, and perform pagan rituals (including the “Cremation of Care”, in which the members wearing red-hooded robes, cremate a coffin effigy of “Dull Care” at the base of a 40 foot owl altar). Some (20%) engage in homosexual activity (but few of them support gay rights or AIDS research). They watch (and participate in) plays and comedy shows in which women are portrayed by male actors. Although women are not allowed in the Grove, members often leave at night to enjoy the company of the many prostitutes who come from around the world for this event. Is any of this hard to believe? Employees of the Grove have said that no verbal description can accurately portray the bizarre behavior of the Grove’s inhabitants.

    Besides this type of merriment. the annual gathering serves as an informational clearing house for the elite. The most powerful men in the country do their “networking” here, despite the Grove’s motto “weaving spiders come not here” (don’t do business in the Grove). At these gatherings men representing the government, military-industrial, and financial sectors meet and make major policy decisions. The Manhattan project, which produced the first atomic bombs, was conceived at the Grove in 1942. Other decisions made at the Grove include who our presidential candidates will be. There are speeches, known as “Lakeside Talks”, wherein high-ranking officials disseminate information which is not available to the public-at-large.

    What are the topics of discussion at the Lakeside Talks?

    What’s not right about this? When powerful people work together, they become even more powerful. The Grove membership is wealthy, and becoming more so, while the middle class is steadily becoming poorer. This close-knit group determines whether prices rise or fall (by their control of the banking system, money supply, and markets), and they make money whichever way markets fluctuate. They determine what our rights are and which laws have effect, by appointing judges. They decide who our highest officials shall be by consensus among themselves, and then selling candidates to us via the media which they own. Important issues and facts are omitted from discussion in the press, or slanted to suit their goals, but they are discussed frankly at the Grove. Is there true democracy when so much power is concentrated in so few hands? Is there any real difference between the public and private sectors when cabinet members come from the boardrooms of large corporations? Is the spending of billions on weapons, which are by consensus no longer needed, really the will of the people? Or is it the will of General Electric, General Dynamics, and the other weapons contractors represented at the Grove?

    What can I do to make a difference? Educate yourself about the Grove and it’s inhabitants, and the true nature of the power structure in the world. Then educate your friends. Since most major newspapers and broadcast stations are owned by “insiders”, be wary of everything you hear in the press. If you can, participate in protest activities during the July retreat.


  9. la, this word was so right on time. thank you for posting it and by the looks of it, everyone on this blog agrees! Amen. I am also praying for everyone on this blog today. so much testing but such a blessed hope we all have! thank you Jesus. how i love you.

  10. Sorry I was late this week with my little donation, L.A.
    I know it isn’t much but if everyone pitched in just a little it could help keep your ministry the treasure it is to us!

  11. JRed says Norway’s OK City Bombing “might be” judgment for Norway’s pro-palestinian/anti-israel stance.

    Same as Japan re: Quake, Tsunami, Radiation…

    “A Warning From Japan To Norway”
    7/23/2011 05:20:00 PM


    The nations of the world cannot continue to ignore the Lord or His eternal statutes.

    Again, it’s difficult to ignore these kinds of connections when they’re right there before our very eyes. To me, it’s a warning from Japan to Norway. A warning for the rest of the world and any nation that would seek to force Israel to give up the land that God gave to her.

    I mean, how many more examples of God’s judgement upon the world for violating what He clearly established in Genesis 12:3 do we need before we finally get what’s really going on in the world?

    Sadly, we Christians who read and study His Word (and end times Bible prophecy) know that it’s only going to continue; it’s only going to get worse. In fact, we could see another example of God’s displeasure in just a matter of days.

  12. ‘After having done all, Stand Still!”

    “Occupy Till I Come!’

    ‘Preach the Gospel regarding the Salvation of Christ AND The Gospel of the Coming Kingom’

    The Kingdom of God starts up, exactly 35 Days after the last battle located Armageddon!

    Thank You Jesus.

  13. More biblical proof that the Nephilim are real and here:

    By the time of Abraham there was a large population of Nephilim in the world again, mostly located in the Middle East from as far south as the southern end of the Dead Sea to Syria in the North. Since the original Nephilim had all perished in the Great Flood, Satan apparently began a new breeding program situated specifically to prevent the Israelites from occupying the Promised Land. Look at these references.

    In Gen 14:5-6 a coalition of 5 kings from around the southeastern shores of the Dead Sea fought and defeated three groups of warriors known as the Rephaites, the Zuzites, aka Zamzummites, and the Emites . The Rephaites were descendants of Rapha, which means giant in Hebrew. The name Zuzite means roving creatures, and Emite means terrible ones.

    In Deut 1:26-28 & 2:10-11, we find references to the Anakites, (long necked giants) and Emites again, both identified as descendants of Rapha, the giant.

    In Deut. 3:11 reference is made to Og, the King of Bashan, a descendant of Rapha whose bed was 13 feet long and 8 feet wide.

    In Numbers 13:33, the account of the 12 spies includes sightings of Nephilim, saying that the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim. Fear of the Nephilim is what made 10 of the 12 spies give a bad report, persuading the Israelites not to go into the Promised Land. All this took place in the time of Moses.

    In Joshua 14:15, at the end of the conquest of the land, Caleb is given Hebron, formerly known as Kiriath Arba because it was founded by Arba, called the greatest of the Anakites.

  14. Man…gotta tell you…needed that something fierce. Moved to a new area recently and haven’t had any significant word since then, prayer or not.
