Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #131. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

James 4:9-10 says, “Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Recognition of the tremendous need for cleansing allows no room for merriment. Grieve (“be afflicted”), mourn, and wail was James’ candid advice. Exchange merriment for mourning and gaiety for gloom (“a downcast look, lowered eyes”). A contrite spirit of confession is essential for God’s cleansing. The key is humility. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up. The way up is down. The lowly one becomes the lifted one. There is a marked advantage to humility—eventually it brings honor.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Where, oh, where are the eternity-conscious believers? Where are the souls white-hot for God because they fear His holy name and presence and so live with eternity’s values in view?”

10 Tips for Adjusting to Homeschooling or a New Curriculum, Part 2

3. Go easy on yourself and your child. You’ve just left behind an educational environment or other style of learning that wasn’t working for some reason, and now you are transitioning to an entirely different approach. During this adjustment phase, don’t get too caught up in whether every single item was done properly in each lesson. What’s the main concept or what are the key skills being addressed? What is most important for your child to grasp before moving on to the next lesson? Make that your focus, and give everyone points for effort as you navigate this new way of learning. Students beginning mid-year may need to go back to previous lessons if they aren’t understanding something in the current lesson.

___________

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at [email protected] and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please email that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #130. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

Ezekiel 18:21-23 says:

21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: [and] not that he should return from his ways, and live?

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Escape from judgment was possible. Sinners could avoid judgment if they repented of their sins by turning from them and kept God’s decrees. Ezekiel was not teaching salvation by works. First, he was speaking of a temporal deliverance from Babylon’s armies rather than eternal deliverance from the second death. Second, he clearly indicated that these righteous works would spring only from a “new heart and a new spirit”. Good works result from a changed life; they do not bring about such a change. Why would God allow a sinner who repented to avoid judgment? The answer lies in God’s character. He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Instead, He is pleased when they turn from their ways. God is not a petty despot who holds grudges and longs to inflict punishment on those who wrong Him. As a God of grace He longs for people to forsake their wickedness and turn to His righteous ways.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “If we will do God’s work in God’s way at God’s time with God’s power, we shall have God’s blessing.”

2. Commit to riding out the transition. There is a progression in learning as your child adjusts, but it may take a few weeks or more to be able to look back and clearly see the progression. Don’t expect to see results right away. Trust the process and really commit fully to seeing it through for six weeks or so before you assess whether it is working for your child. Learning really does take place, even if it might not feel that way in the moment, and a few weeks’ perspective can make all the difference in understanding.

REPENT!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “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. ”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “God then encouraged Solomon by the promise that if His judgment (by drought, locusts, or a plague) should fall on the nation for their sin, they need only turn to the Lord in earnest humility and repentance and they would find forgiveness and restoration. This promise, in answer to Solomon’s prayer, was given because God’s presence among His people Israel is eternal, focused particularly on the temple. The covenant theme comes through clearly in the Lord’s declaration that if Solomon would obey Him he could be assured of God’s reciprocal blessing in the perpetuation of his dynastic rule. Conversely, if Solomon and the nation should fall away from the Lord and serve other gods they would be exiled and their magnificent temple destroyed. This does not suggest that the Davidic Covenant is conditional from God’s standpoint. He had said it would be forever. But Solomon’s (or any king’s) enjoyment of it would depend on his obedience to God. Later Solomon did worship other gods, as did many of his successors, so the nation was exiled to Babylon and the temple destroyed. Everyone who would witness the desolation of the land and the temple would know that it was a mark of God’s judgment on His people because of their sin.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “If we had more sleepless nights in prayer, there would be fewer souls to have a sleepless eternal night in hell.”

Teaching the Trivium Review from thehomeschoolmom.com

Teaching the Trivium by Harvey and Laurie Bluedorn is based on the classical method of homeschooling (taking advantage of the idea that there are three distinct learning stages in a child’s life) and that children should be taught a classical, Christian education, with its emphasis on teaching languages, logic, rhetoric, literature, and history. Included is guidance on providing children a classical education and interweaving the theory of the trivium into other homeschool curricula.

10 Tips for Adjusting to Homeschooling or a New Curriculum, Part 1

1. Different philosophy; different approach. Students who have been in school have likely become accustomed to an institutional approach where work is prescribed to the class as a whole and the teacher’s attention is divided among many students. Shifting to a creative thinking approach, and working one-to-one with a parent or other home teacher, can be challenging for a student who just spent last semester trying very hard to figure out how to succeed in an institutional setting. Switching gears to this degree is quite an adjustment and might bring stress or frustration. Be understanding and acknowledge those differences as needed.

REPENT!

Jeremiah 4:3-4 says, “For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns. Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Jeremiah then used two metaphors to show the need for repentance. The first metaphor pertained to farming. Just as a farmer does not sow his seed on unplowed ground, so God does not sow His seed of blessing in unrepentant hearts. The men of Judah and … Jerusalem needed to break up the unplowed ground of their hearts through repentance. The second metaphor came from the Jewish practice of circumcision. Circumcision was a sign of being under God’s covenant with Israel. The men, though circumcised physically, needed to circumcise their hearts so that their inward condition matched their outward profession. Unless Judah did exercise true repentance-not just outward profession-God’s wrath would be released and would burn like fire against the people. And once God’s wrath was released no one could quench it.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “A man who is intimate with God is not intimidated by man.”

Teaching Textbooks Review from thehomeschoolmom.com

Teaching Textbooks is a math curriculum based on 3 easy steps: watch the lesson, do the problems, and watch a tutor explain the ones you missed. Teaching Textbooks were designed specifically for independent learners (they focus on teaching/explanations). A Teaching Textbook, with its approximately 700 pages of text and 120 to 160 hours of teacher instruction on CD-ROM, is both a teacher and a textbook combined into one. And the CD-ROM teaching isn’t just abstract lectures either. There are also down-to-earth, audiovisual step-by-step explanations for every single one of the almost 3,500 problems in the book. The Teaching Textbook introduces proper terminology only after first presenting the underlying concept in plain language.

The Freedom of Flexible Learning, Part 6

How can I create a flexible learning environment for my student?
5. Integrate life with learning. Balance academic work with the other kinds of work that are important – housework, animal care, community service, volunteer work, and/or a paid job if they have one. Your child’s role in the family and community is just as important as their role as a student.

6. Relax! There’s no hurry to go anywhere. Put your feet up and enjoy the peace and quiet while you and your child do school at your own pace and in your own way.

___________

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at [email protected] and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please email that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

How to Stay the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #127

THERE IS MORE SAID IN THE PODCAST AUDIO THAN IN THE NOTES BELOW

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #127. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

Zephaniah 2:1-3 says, “Gather yourselves together, yea, gather together, O nation not desired;Before the decree bring forth, before the day pass as the chaff, before the fierce anger of the LORD come upon you, before the day of the LORD’S anger come upon you. Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the LORD’s anger.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Zephaniah urged the people, Gather together, perhaps to come collectively to repent as a nation. Repeating the command stressed the urgency of his appeal. The words O shameful nation are literally, “O nation not shamed.” Judah, because of her sin, was without shame; her face was not blushing or white or pale with embarrassment. Sin had hardened her sensitivity to sin. The urgency of the prophet’s summons is seen in this verse. The three phrases introduced by the word before emphasize the point. If the nation did not repent, it would soon be too late. The nation could prevent the impending judgment if their repentance, like that of Nineveh’s, were immediate. The words and that day sweeps on like chaff function as a parenthesis to strengthen the first of the three clauses. Imminent repentance was imperative because the day of God’s wrath was rapidly approaching, like light chaff driven forcefully by the wind. The prophet urged those who already know the Lord (as evidenced by their humble obedience to Him) to continue steadfast in their walk with Him. They were commanded to strive for three things: the Lord, righteousness, and humility. The last two result from following the Lord. If the remnant would seek the Lord, then they would be sheltered from the impending doom of God’s anger. Though many died in the Babylonian invasions, others were spared and some were exiled to Babylon. God sheltered or protected His remnant.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Preacher brethren, this is the time to blush that we have no shame, the time to weep for our lack of tears, the time to bend low that we have lost the humble touch of servants, the time to groan that we have no burden, the time to be angry with ourselves that we have no anger over the devil’s monopoly in this ‘‘end time’’ hour, the time to chastise ourselves that the world can so easily get along with us and not attempt to chastise us.”

The Freedom of Flexible Learning, Part 5

How can I create a flexible learning environment for my student?
4. Enjoy a change of scenery. Homeschooling allows students to take advantage of flexible learning spaces, whether that is sitting at the kitchen table with a snack, relaxing in a bean bag chair, lying on the sofa with a cozy blanket and a fire in the fireplace, or stretching out in a lawn chair outside on a nice day. Homeschooling also gives you the freedom to take your work anywhere you go! Take advantage of the opportunity to travel and explore different physical spaces. Even if you stick close to home, you can enjoy visiting the library or working in a nearby park.

5. Integrate life with learning. Balance academic work with the other kinds of work that are important – housework, animal care, community service, volunteer work, and/or a paid job if they have one. Your child’s role in the family and community is just as important as their role as a student.

How to Stay the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #126

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #126. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

Amos 5:14-15 says, “Seek good, and not evil, that ye may live: and so the LORD, the God of hosts, shall be with you, as ye have spoken. Hate the evil, and love the good, and establish judgment in the gate: it may be that the LORD God of hosts will be gracious unto the remnant of Joseph.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “The possibility still existed, however, for individuals to separate themselves from their guilty nation. If people would seek good, not evil, they might yet live. If they would go counter to the prevailing corruption—if they would hate evil instead of hating the righteous, if they would maintain justice in the courts instead of trampling it—then the Lord God Almighty, the great suzerain Warrior would be their Defender instead of their Judge. He would indeed be with them, just as they were claiming He was. “The Lord is with us” was Israel’s ancient shout of assurance that their powerful God would fight for them in battle and defend them in adversity. But in the time of Jeroboam II this shout had become an empty slogan. Their assurance, Amos insisted, was a delusion. God was no longer “with them.” The guilty nation had been abandoned. Their external prosperity was misleading; it had bred a false security. In reality, there would be only a brief respite before their Sovereign would sweep them away in judgment. If a handful, however, would turn and passionately seek the Lord, perhaps the great Suzerain would have mercy on that small repentant remnant of the Northern Kingdom, here called Joseph.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Oh! my ministering brethren! Much of our praying is but giving God advice! Our praying is discolored with ambition, either for ourselves or for our denomination. Perish the thought! Our goal must be God alone. It is His honor that is sullied, His blessed Son who is ignored, His laws broken, His name profaned, His Book forgotten, His house made a circus of social efforts.”

Robinson Curriculum Review from thehomeschoolmom.com

Created by Dr. Art Robinson to homeschool his children after the death of his wife, the Robinson Curriculum is known for allowing children to self-teach. Children using this curriculum are able to advance at their own rate through learning of skills and facts whether or not their parents have this knowledge – and to do so on their own without an active teacher. The curriculum is based on the development of good habits, choosing the best course of study, using high quality books, and creating the best study environment.

The Freedom of Flexible Learning, Part 4

How can I create a flexible learning environment for my student?
1. Organize your day as it makes sense: If you and your child are sharpest in the morning, concentrate on academics at that time of day. If you find they have trouble getting started in the morning, plan more relaxed learning activities for the morning and focus on academics in the afternoon. Spending more time on homeschooling at the optimal time of day is an easy way to set kids up for success.

2. Set your own pace. Skim over topics you already have experience with, and spend as much time as you need on topics that are challenging or unfamiliar. If you get excited about something, dig deep and enjoy! Take your time when that feels right. You are the captain of this ship.

3. Get up and move around! If you’ve been sitting and focusing on academics for a while and your child starts to feel antsy, put down your work, and go outside for some fresh air and exercise. Take a local outdoors field trip to break the monotony.

REPENT!

Amos 5:4-6 says, “For thus saith the LORD unto the house of Israel, Seek ye me, and ye shall live: But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, and pass not to Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity, and Bethel shall come to nought. Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest he break out like fire in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there be none to quench it in Bethel.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “National judgment was certain, but individuals could yet seek God and live. They should not, however, seek Him at the sanctuaries, for these were doomed. Evidently northern Israelites crossed over the border to worship at a shrine associated with the patriarchs. Gilgal, the memorial of entrance into the land, was to become the symbol of exile from the land. And Bethel, the “house of God,” was to become “Beth Aven”, a “house of nothing,” a “house of spirits.” In Hebrew, the last part of the city’s name, “El,” meaning “God,” was changed by Amos to “Aven”, meaning “nothing, empty, having no existence,” a word often used to describe the powerless spirits of wickedness. This sarcasm would have a stinging effect on the people. The command to seek the Lord meant to turn to Him, not in ritual worship, but by doing good and hating evil. Those who did would live: when the unquenchable and devouring fire of the invader swept through the house of Joseph (the Northern Kingdom), the seekers would be the remnant spared in mercy”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “The tragedy of this late hour is that we have too many dead men in the pulpits giving out too many dead sermons to too many dead people.”

NEWS

According to ABC, 34 White House staffers and other contacts connected to the White House have been infected with coronavirus.

NorthStar Academy Review from thehomeschoolmom.com

NorthStar Academy is an accredited online private Christian school that currently offers students in grades 4-12 a complete academic and diploma-granting program.

The Freedom of Flexible Learning, Part 3

How will we get everything done?
If you are someone who enjoys taking a relaxed homeschooling approach to when the “curriculum year” starts and ends, you may feel just fine going with the flow and letting all things happen in their own time. If you take summers off, you might pick up where you left off when fall comes around again, or you might just keep going year-round through the years.

But if your goal is to finish all of one grade in a year, particularly if you are obligated to a traditional school schedule with mandatory reporting, you will want to keep an eye on the overall arc of your progress through the curriculum. If you expand in some areas, you may need to find a way to contract in others to complete a year’s worth of material on time.

However you approach your homeschool schedule, be clear about your priorities, and refine your goals throughout the year as you get a better sense of what is realistic to expect from yourself and your child at each stage of development.

___________

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

REPENT!

Jeremiah 4:3-4 says, “For thus saith the LORD to the men of Judah and Jerusalem, Break up your fallow ground, and sow not among thorns. Circumcise yourselves to the LORD, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Jeremiah then used two metaphors to show the need for repentance. The first metaphor pertained to farming. Just as a farmer does not sow his seed on unplowed ground, so God does not sow His seed of blessing in unrepentant hearts. The men of Judah and … Jerusalem needed to break up the unplowed ground of their hearts through repentance. The second metaphor came from the Jewish practice of circumcision. Circumcision was a sign of being under God’s covenant with Israel. The men, though circumcised physically, needed to circumcise their hearts so that their inward condition matched their outward profession. Unless Judah did exercise true repentance-not just outward profession-God’s wrath would be released and would burn like fire against the people. And once God’s wrath was released no one could quench it.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “No man is greater than his prayer life.”

The Freedom of Flexible Learning, Part 2

What do you mean by flexibility?
At times, it will be appropriate to speed up or slow down in response to your child’s needs. A student who is struggling or is new to a concept may need more time, more attention, and more practice before being ready to move on.

On the other hand, some learners will grasp concepts more readily than others, and they will be capable of moving onto the next lesson faster and with less repetition than a student who needs more time and practice to understand a given topic. If a given lesson covers something that your child has already encountered, perhaps even mastered, you can choose to review that material quickly, do only selected assignments, or even skip the lesson altogether.

The opportunity to implement a personalized learning experience is one of the primary benefits of the flexibility of homeschooling children.

REPENT!

Hosea 10:12 says, “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the LORD, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Even in the midst of a message of condemnation and judgment God held out the possibility of repentance and blessing. Using agricultural imagery, He urged Israel to seek the Lord by cultivating righteousness and reaping His unfailing love. The words showers righteousness compare God’s future gift of righteousness (or just treatment in the form of deliverance) to abundant rain. The exhortation in verse 12 actually summarizes the appeal made by Israel’s prophets throughout her history. But the sinful nation had not responded properly, producing instead wickedness, evil, and deception. Rather than relying on the power of God, the nation had depended on her own military might. The contrast between God’s desires and Israel’s response heightens her guilt. So the call to repentance had a twofold function: it testified to the Lord’s grace and contributed to the development of the prophet’s accusation.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Before we can be clean and ready for God to control, self-seeking, self-glory, self-interest, self-pity, self-righteousness, self-importance, self-promotion, self-satisfaction—and whatsoever else there be of self—must die.”

The Freedom of Flexible Learning, Part 1

One of the most valuable benefits of homeschooling is flexibility. Many families tell us that this flexibility is the reason they are able to “live their learning” in a way that just wouldn’t happen if they were enrolled in traditional school.

Some parents have an instinctively flexible approach to home teaching. Others naturally choose a more structured and measured approach. Neither is inherently better, as long as it is working for you and your child. But no matter who you are, sometimes homeschooling can feel overwhelming, and when that happens, flexibility can come to the rescue.

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #122. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

Revelation 3:14-19 says, “And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “No word of commendation was extended to the Laodicean church. They were pictured as utterly abhorrent to Christ because they were lukewarm. This was addressed to the church and also to the messenger or the pastor whom some believe was Archippus. It is improbable, however, that Archippus, if he had been the pastor of the church, was still living. In referring to the church as “lukewarm” Christ had in mind that this was its permanent situation. In their feasts as well as in their religious sacrifices people in the ancient world customarily drank what was either hot or cold—never lukewarm. This rebuke would have been especially meaningful to this church, for water was piped to the city from Hierapolis, a few miles north. By the time the water reached Laodicea, it was lukewarm! Their being lukewarm spiritually was evidenced by their being content with their material wealth and their being unaware of their spiritual poverty. Christ used strong words to describe them: wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked. They were urged to buy not ordinary gold, but refined gold, referring to that which would glorify God and make them truly rich. Through its banking industry the city had material wealth. But the church lacked spiritual richness. Though they had beautiful clothes, they were urged to wear white clothes, symbolic of righteousness which would cover their spiritual nakedness. As wool was a major product of the area, Laodicea was especially famous for a black garment made out of black wool. What they needed instead was pure white clothing. Then Christ exhorted them to put salve on their eyes. A medical school was located in Laodicea at the temple of Asclepius, which offered a special salve to heal common eye troubles of the Middle East. What they needed was not this medicine but spiritual sight. The church at Laodicea is typical of a modern church quite unconscious of its spiritual needs and content with beautiful buildings and all the material things money can buy. This is a searching and penetrating message. To all such the exhortation is be earnest, and repent. Christ rebuked them because He loved them, which love would also bring chastisement on this church.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Christianity today is so subnormal that if any Christian began to act like a normal New Testament Christian, he would be considered abnormal.”

Homeschooling on a Budget

Homeschooling does not have to break your budget! The range of families who homeschool varies from the wealthy movie stars to low-income families that must be careful with every dime. Keep in mind that although you may be spending money to homeschool, you will save money by not having your child in a public or private school.

Older clothes work fine for the home setting, where more stylish (and expensive) clothes are desired for school. It is far cheaper to make lunch at home than to buy a school lunch every day, and that money can add up to a significant amount that can be used for homeschool resources. There are no book fees to pay to a school so that money can also go into your homeschool fund. School fundraisers are avoided and the money spent on them goes in the pot as well. By the time you add up all of the school expenses that you have saved, you might be surprised to find that homeschooling isn’t as expensive an alternative as you thought it would be! It is entirely possible to successfully homeschool without spending a fortune.

REPENT!

Revelation 2:4-5 says “Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “In spite of the many areas of commendation, the church in Ephesus was soundly rebuked: Yet I hold this against you: you have forsaken your first love. The order of words in the Greek is emphatic; the clause could be translated, “Your first love you have left.” Christ used the word agapēn, speaking of the deep kind of love that God has for people. This rebuke contrasts with what Paul wrote the Ephesians 35 years earlier, that he never stopped giving thanks for them because of their faith in Christ and their love (agapēn) for the saints. Most of the Ephesian Christians were now second-generation believers, and though they had retained purity of doctrine and life and had maintained a high level of service, they were lacking in deep devotion to Christ. How the church today needs to heed this same warning, that orthodoxy and service are not enough. Christ wants believers’ hearts as well as their hands and heads. The Ephesians were first reminded to remember the height from which you have fallen! They were told to repent and to return to the love they had left. Similar exhortations concerning the need for a deep love for God are frequently found in the New Testament. Christ stated that one’s love for God should be greater than his love for his closest relatives, including his wife, father, mother, son, and daughter. Paul added that love for God should even be above one’s love for his or her mate. In calling the Ephesian believers to repentance Christ was asking them to change their attitude as well as their affections. They were to continue their service not simply because it was right but because they loved Christ. He warned them that if they did not respond, the light of their witness in Ephesus would be extinguished: I will remove your lampstand from its place. The church continued and was later the scene of a major church council, but after the 5th century both the church and the city declined. The immediate area has been uninhabited since the 14th century.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Unctionized by the Spirit’s might, John cried, ‘‘Repent!’’ And they did! Repentance is not a few hot tears at the penitent form. It is not emotion or remorse or reformation. Repentance is a change of mind about God, about sin, and about hell!”

How to Choose the Best Homeschool Curriculum, Part 3

Interest-led learning. If your child has a strong interest or does not respond well to typical school work, you may want to try interest-led learning. You can choose resources that support the interest, and that might not include choosing a formal homeschool curriculum.

Grade levels. You may want to know what homeschoolers think about how a child’s grade level affects curriculum choice, and when grade level may matter most. Homeschooled kids frequently learn at different grade levels for different subjects, and there is more freedom to help them at the level where they are rather than the level they should be.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at [email protected] and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please email that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

REPENT!

Ezekiel 18:27-30 says “Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall save his soul alive.Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Israel had charged God with unrighteousness, but God now turned the tables. Is My way unjust? Is it not your ways that are unjust? Ezekiel reminded Israel of the responsibility for sin borne by each member of the nation. I will judge you, each one according to his ways. If Israel fell, it would be for the sins of her own generation. Because of this, the nation needed to repent if she hoped to escape. Israel needed spiritual renewal. The people needed to get rid of their offenses and get a new heart and a new spirit. The life or death of the people depended on their individual responses to God. Those who continued to rebel would die; those who repented and turned from sin would live.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “The Cinderella of the church of today is the prayer meeting. This handmaid of the Lord is unloved and unwooed because she is not dripping with the pearls of intellectualism, nor glamorous with the silks of philosophy; neither is she enchanting with the tiara of psychology.”

How to Choose the Best Homeschool Curriculum, Part 2

Choosing a Curriculum with Your Children in Mind
Children come in different ages, stages, levels of development, learning preferences, personality types, and activity levels, and they have different interests. For example, if you have young children, you may wonder what curriculum you should use for your 4 (or 5 or 6) year old. Or you may be interested in what homeschool curriculum to use for an active, outdoorsy child. Or you may need a homeschool math curriculum for a struggling student.

Learning styles. Some children learn more by creating and making things; others through reading or talking to people. When you choose your homeschool curriculum, take these preferences into consideration by exploring learning styles like visual learning, auditory learning, and kinesthetic learning. You may also need to consider whether your child is a right-brain learner when choosing curriculum.

REPENT!

Lamentations 3:40-41 says “Let us search and try our ways, and turn again to the LORD. Let us lift up our heart with our hands unto God in the heavens.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Jeremiah ended this section by exhorting the people, Let us examine our ways let us return to the Lord. God’s affliction was designed as a corrective measure to restore His wayward people. It was designed to force the people to return to the Lord. The condition of the prophet and the character of God prompted Jeremiah to pray. This next section is in two parts. In the first part the prophet exhorted the people to confess their sins to God because of their suffering. This section was written in the plural. In the second partJeremiah remembered God’s personal deliverance after his cry; this prompted Jeremiah to call on God to judge his enemies. This section was written in the singular; it represented Jeremiah as the model for Judah. As God rescued Jeremiah and judged his enemies, so God would rescue Judah and judge her enemies if she would call on Him. This prayer flows out of the exhortation in verse 40. Judah’s return to the Lord would be accomplished through prayer. As she turned toward heaven she would acknowledge that she had sinned and rebelled. The nation’s troubles—being under God’s anger, having unanswered prayer, being rejected like scum by the nations, and being scoffed at—stemmed from her disobedience to God. All her terror and pitfalls, ruin and destruction resulted from rebellion against God’s covenant. When Judah would realize the awful consequences of her sin, she would finally admit her guilt.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Prayer does not condition God; prayer conditions us. Prayer does not win God to our view; it reveals God’s view to us.”

How to Choose the Best Homeschool Curriculum, Part 1

Many homeschool parents start with the question, “What’s the best homeschool curriculum?” A more productive question is, “What homeschool curriculum is the best fit?”

Choosing the best homeschool curriculum is important to new and prospective homeschooling parents, as well as those who want to improve homeschooling or adjust to a new phase, such as kids starting high school.

In order to find the homeschool curriculum that is the best fit for your family, consider

– Your children
– Your self
– Your situation

You’ll want to choose a homeschool curriculum that addresses all three.

REPENT!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says “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.”

David Guzik said, “This wonderful promise is in the context of God’s promise to answer prayer from the temple which He chose to hallow with His presence. God promised something special to Israel when they did humble themselves and did pray and seek God’s face. There is something naturally humble in true prayer because it recognizes that the answers are not in self and they are in God. God promises something special to humble, praying people. The phrase My people who are called by My name had its first application to the people of Israel as they lived in the land God promised them. Nevertheless, the same God who made this promise to Israel still reigns in the heavens and will still respond to His humble praying people today. Although God’s invitation is initially given to my people, 2 Chronicles 6:32-33 has made clear that anyone who acknowledges God’s name and authority may pray with the same confidence of a hearing. This passage is therefore consistent with others where the in vitation is explicitly extended to ‘all who call upon the name of the LORD.’ This great promise of answered prayer in 2 Chronicles 7:14 also includes the condition of repentance. As the people of God humble themselves, pray and seek the face of God, they must also turn from their wicked ways. It wasn’t enough to merely turn their heart to God; they must also turn their life to God. God simply promises to hear the prayer of his humble, prayerful, seeking, repentant people. He will bring forgiveness to His people and healing to their land.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “We are not Protestants any more—just ‘‘non-Catholics’’! Of what and of whom do we protest? Were we half as hot as we think we are, and a tenth as powerful as we say we are, our Christians would be baptized in blood, as well as in water and in fire.”

5 Steps to Simple Homeschooling Planning, Part 4

Simplify and streamline

This is my favorite part of the planning process. Getting rid of all the STUFF, cleaning out and purging items, simplifying and streamlining. Every year, I get better and better at it!

Friend, take a long hard look at all the homeschooling things in your space. Do you need them all? Are there books, curricula, art supplies (I’m looking at you, glitter glue) that are taking up precious space on your shelves? Why are you holding on to things you don’t need or use?

This is a perfect time to downsize your homeschool stash and then only add new things that are absolutely essential.

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #117. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says “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.”

Joseph Benson said “National repentance and reformation are required. God expects, that if his people, who are called by his name, have dishonoured his name by their iniquity, they should honour it by accepting the punishment of their iniquity. They must humble themselves under his hand, must pray for the removal of the judgment, must seek his face and favour: and yet all this will not be sufficient, unless they turn from their wicked ways, and return to him from whom they have revolted. National mercy is then promised. God will first forgive their sin, which brought the judgment upon them, and then will heal their land, and redress their grievances.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Preacher brethren, this is the time to blush that we have no shame, the time to weep for our lack of tears, the time to bend low that we have lost the humble touch of servants, the time to groan that we have no burden, the time to be angry with ourselves that we have no anger over the devil’s monopoly in this ‘‘end time’’ hour, the time to chastise ourselves that the world can so easily get along with us and not attempt to chastise us.”

5 Steps to Simple Homeschooling Planning, Part 3

Set your vision

How do you want your homeschool year to look and feel? What season of life are you and your family in right now? I love to create goals for my kids (all teens now) and also give them the change to do the same.

Write a homeschool vision statement. Place it in your planning binder or post it somewhere for the whole family to see. Be sure your kids have copies of their goals to review with you every month or quarter. A simple task that can build connection and keep everyone moving forward through the school year.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

2 Chronicles 7:14 says “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.”

Thomas Constable said “This passage shows how to avoid the consequences of disobedience: submit to God, pray, and repent (i.e, change direction, not just feeling). This remedy is as applicable today as it was in postexilic Israel and in the days of Israel’s monarchy. The promise that God would “heal their land” ties in with His earlier promise to bless the Israelites” land with rain and fertility if they obeyed His commandments in the Mosaic Law. God has not promised specifically to heal the land of other believers who obey His will for them. However, He has promised to bless generally those who do so.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Ministers who do not spend two hours a day in prayer are not worth a dime a dozen, degrees or no degrees.”

5 Steps to Simple Homeschooling Planning, Part 2

Study your kids

This might seem obvious, but, you’ve got to study your kids. You need to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Hone in on their passions. Make time for those in your day–that is the beauty of homeschooling!

If you typically follow a more traditional homeschool curriculum or have a kid (or a parent) who just likes to “check the boxes”, I invite you to push your boundaries a bit. Brainstorm some out-of-the-box ideas with your kid. Breathe new life into your homeschool year. It might just be the thing you both need as you continue your journey.

5 Steps to Simple Homeschooling Planning, Part 1

Self-reflection

Before you plan everything out for your kids, take some time to examine your needs:

– How are you feeling?
– What do you want to change in your approach to home education?
– Is your schedule different this year?
– Are you working?
– Handling any health issues or big life changes, like a move?

All of these things should be considered before you do detailed planning. I hadn’t done this type of reflection when I was a new homeschool parent. I was so worried about making sure I had all the right books, activities, etc. that I forgot to take myself into consideration. And considering I was the one doing the bulk of the homeschooling, something had to change. Be sure to schedule yourself a homeschool parent/teacher conference. Yes, have a meeting with yourself.

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #114. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

Deuteronomy 4:29-31 says, “But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “After the strong warning against idolatry Moses spelled out the consequences of neglecting that warning. After the Israelites had been in the land a long time and had become secure they might forget the Lord and their need to trust Him alone. They would then be easily seduced into idolatrous worship, which would corrupt them and provoke God’s anger. Moses invoked heaven and earth as witnesses because of their permanence and unchanging character in contrast with the fickleness of human hearts. This certain judgment would take two forms, a dispersion among the nations with a great loss of life and a giving over to idolatry. This prophecy was fulfilled in the Assyrian and Babylonian Captivities, but its greatest fulfillment came in the dispersion of Israel after she rejected Jesus Christ. The later days may refer to any time after the initial dispersions, but their ultimate reference is to the time when the Lord Jesus will return to earth to establish His 1,000-year kingdom (Rev. 20:4). At that time a repentant Israel will finally seek the Lord look for Him with all her heart and soul and will obey Him. In Deuteronomy, Moses repeatedly stressed the need for wholehearted devotion to the Lord by the words “with all your heart and with all your soul.“ Israel’s final return to her Savior will be due not to any goodness of their human hearts, but rather to her merciful God. The Hebrew word translated “merciful” refers to the tender compassion of a mother toward her helpless infant. So even if Israel forgets her God He will not abandon His morally helpless children because He has the tender compassion of a mother and because He made an inviolable covenant with Abraham and confirmed it to Isaac and Jacob by oath. Since God will not forget His covenant neither should Israel.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Oh that believers would become eternity-conscious! If we could live every moment of every day under the eye of God, if we did every act in the light of the judgment seat, if we sold every article in the light of the judgment seat, if we prayed every prayer in the light of the judgment seat, if we tithed all our possessions in the light of the judgment seat, if we preachers prepared every sermon with one eye on damned humanity and the other on the judgment seat—then we would have a Holy Ghost revival that would shake this earth and that, in no time at all, would liberate millions of precious souls.”

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 10

The Strong Homeschool Schedule

The truth is, most homeschooling parents have to consider many of these things in creating a strong homeschool schedule for their week. They may participate in a co-op, have regularly scheduled outside activities, do shift work, and use a curriculum alongside interest-based learning and projects. Or, they may be unschoolers whose kids nonetheless participate in a co-op and a lot of community activities, service work, and time with mentors.

Everyone also has to figure in time for grocery shopping, meal preparation, laundry, home maintenance, and appointments, and many have to include part-time or full-time work. A strong weekly plan takes these things into consideration, along with time for the homeschooling parent to take a break and pursue her own interests.

You might find some kind of weekly planner to be a useful tool in working out your strong homeschooling weeks, and as something you can post on the fridge to keep your whole family aware of the regularly occurring weekly events.

REPENT!

Leviticus 26:40-42 says, “If they shall confess their iniquity, and the iniquity of their fathers, with their trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me; And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the land of their enemies; if then their uncircumcised hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the punishment of their iniquity: Then will I remember my covenant with Jacob, and also my covenant with Isaac, and also my covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the land.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “The bleak prospect described in verses 14–39 is bathed in a ray of hope by God’s gracious promise, But if they will confess their sins then I will remember My covenant with Abraham, and I will remember the land. Though Israel would break this covenant, yet God would not break His covenant with them. In His covenant faithfulness He will someday fulfill His covenant with Abraham by blessing a repentant generation of Jews in the land of Israel. Though Israel has been divinely disciplined by numerous deportations and dispersions, the blessings of the Abrahamic Covenant with the Jewish nation in the Promised Land in perpetuity await fulfillment in the millennial kingdom after the Second Advent of Christ.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Today God is bypassing men—not because they are too ignorant, but because they are too self-sufficient. Brethren, our abilities are our handicaps, and our talents our stumbling blocks!”

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 9

The Alternating Home/Out Schedule

In fact, many homeschooling families, especially those with young children, find that a mainstay of organizing their weeks is that alternating pattern of home- and out-days. A big day of errands, lessons, grocery shopping and volunteering needs to be followed by a slower paced home-based day to give everyone time to recover and have time for reading, playing, exploring, and helping with home maintenance. This may especially be true for people living where there are a lot of activities available to homeschoolers, so they have to be careful not to over-schedule.

However, it can also be a wise rhythm for families who live in rural areas who have to drive long distances to activities: scheduling firm home days can be a relief from being in the car too much and valuing outside activities over home-based ones.

The home/out alternating schedule also provides relief for both your extroverted children and introverted children — who can look forward to having time to recharge with the level of interaction that helps them function best.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

James 4:9-10 says, “Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Recognition of the tremendous need for cleansing allows no room for merriment. Grieve (“be afflicted”), mourn, and wail was James’ candid advice. Exchange merriment for mourning and gaiety for gloom (“a downcast look, lowered eyes”). A contrite spirit of confession is essential for God’s cleansing. The key is humility. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up. The way up is down. The lowly one becomes the lifted one. There is a marked advantage to humility—eventually it brings honor.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Where, oh, where are the eternity-conscious believers? Where are the souls white-hot for God because they fear His holy name and presence and so live with eternity’s values in view?”

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 8

The What-We-Need-to-Do and What-We-Want-to-Do Schedule

Families who use project-based homeschooling, interest-based homeschooling, unschooling, unit studies, and interdisciplinary homeschooling may not find school subjects or community activities to be the most compelling aspects of their weekly schedule. Instead, their homeschooling may revolve around where the project or interest or study leads. Their days of the week are organized around what they need and want to do to follow up on interests or projects.

That might mean a day at home to research and plan and make lists. This might be followed by a day out to shop for supplies and materials. Then a day at home to build and create the project, along with more list-making and research for another round of resource-gathering. There might need to be a day to visit with a mentor or go to the library for books, or a day to wait for help from Dad or Aunt Janie.

Homeschooling parents using one of these approaches may keep their weekly schedules fluid and ever-changing with each project, or they may have designated days that they know they will “stay home” or “be out,” and they tack on what is needed for the week’s learning to certain days. That way, material gathering will always be done on Tuesdays — a designated “out” day, while kids can look forward to help and undisturbed time for working on projects on Wednesday — a designated “home” day.

2 Chronicles 6:37-39 says, “Yet if they bethink themselves in the land whither they are carried captive, and turn and pray unto thee in the land of their captivity, saying, We have sinned, we have done amiss, and have dealt wickedly; If they return to thee with all their heart and with all their soul in the land of their captivity, whither they have carried them captives, and pray toward their land, which thou gavest unto their fathers, and toward the city which thou hast chosen, and toward the house which I have built for thy name:Then hear thou from the heavens, even from thy dwelling place, their prayer and their supplications, and maintain their cause, and forgive thy people which have sinned against thee.”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “In a spirit of magnanimity, Solomon also entreated the Lord to hear the prayers of foreigners who might go to the temple to seek His face. Solomon prayed that in times of war the Lord would bless His people in battle . If, however, they sinned and were taken captive to a foreign land and there repented, Solomon prayed that they would be forgiven.”

According to the Charlotte Observer, UNC-Chapel Hill moved all classes online after 130 more students were infected with coronavirus.

According to the AP, the US recorded 1,503 deaths yesterday.

According to People Magazine, A Georgia school district has announced that a third high school will be temporarily closed due to a coronavirus outbreak. The Cherokee County School District announced on Sunday that Creekview High School would close through the end of August after having reported 25 positive COVID-19 cases. Additionally, 500 of the 1,800 students who had opted for in-person learning were put under a “precautionary quarantine.”

According to the Washington Post, A teacher made a spreadsheet tracking coronavirus in schools. In 10 days, her spreadsheet has gone from 30 entries to more than 700, each representing a separate school that has been affected by coronavirus.

According to WSB-TV, A local private school in Buckhead, Georgia, confirmed that 18 class of 2020 graduates have tested positive for coronavirus.

According to the Insider, One school district in Nebraska canceled classes this weekend after three staff members tested positive for the coronavirus. Another 24 are quarantining due to exposure.

According to WMC 5, Memphis’ Harding Academy has gone virtual and is suspending athletics after seeing 12 cases of coronavirus after its first week of the new school year.

According to the BBC, South Korea is dealing with its biggest jump in coronavirus cases in five months – with 279 cases reported on Sunday alone. At least 457 of the new cases have been linked to the Sarang Jeil Church.

According to Syracuse News, People attending services at four Syracuse, New York, area churches may have been exposed to the coronavirus by infected congregants, some of whom were not wearing face masks.

According to CTV News, Several coronavirus cases have been linked to the Bible Pentecostal Church in north Edmonton, Canada.

According to Parkersburg News and Sentinel, Five people at a church in Wood County, West Virginia, have tested positive for coronavirus.

According to Wyoming Today, 9 cases of coronavirus have been linked to Word of Faith Family Church in Lander, Wyoming.

According to the Washington Post, The U.S. coronavirus death toll is expected to pass 180,000 and could reach 200,000 by Sept. 5, according to modelers whose forecasts are shared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention—a somber prediction as the country tries to battle the virus and revitalize the economy.

According to CNN, Health experts say children make up more than 7% of all coronavirus cases in the US — while comprising about 22% of the country’s population — and the number and rate of child cases have been “steadily increasing” from March to July. The data was posted alongside updated guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for pediatricians that also includes what is known about the virus in children. “Recent evidence suggests that children likely have the same or higher viral loads in their nasopharynx compared with adults and that children can spread the virus effectively in households and camp settings.”

According to the Washington Post, The number of Americans who say they can’t afford enough food for themselves or their children is growing, according to Census data, and it is likely to get larger now that some government benefits have expired. As of late last month, about 12.1% of adults lived in households that didn’t have enough to eat at some point in the previous week, up from 9.8% in early May. Almost 20% of Americans with kids at home couldn’t afford to give their children enough food, up from almost 17% in early June.

According to the AP, a data error on Iowa’s coronavirus website lowers the number of new confirmed cases and therefore downplays the severity of the current outbreak, just as schools are deciding whether to reopen. The glitch means the Iowa Department of Public Health has inadvertently been reporting fewer new infections and a smaller percentage of daily positive tests than is truly the case. Potentially thousands of coronavirus infections from recent weeks and months have instead been erroneously recorded as having happened in March, April, May and June.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Documents that could show how Georgia has managed key aspects of the coronavirus pandemic are being withheld from the public, in what open government advocates say are possible violations of public records laws.

According to Reuters, Spain recorded almost 3,000 new cases on Friday, about double the average in the first 12 days of August, bringing the cumulative total to 342,813 – the highest in Western Europe.

HomeLife Academy Review from thehomeschoolmom.com

HomeLife Academy is a non-traditional K-12 private school and ministry that was founded to give homeschoolers and their parents educational access and support from anywhere in the world. They allow parents to teach what they want, on their own schedule and in a style appropriate for their child. Although they do not provide curriculum or teaching, they do provide assistance with planning and choosing curriculum, providing reference letters, and assistance with records and documentation.

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 8

The Extra-Curricular and Class-Driven Schedule
In a large or busy family, extra curricular activities, sports, volunteering, and classes in the community go on the weekly schedule first. For example, the local science museum may be offering an eight-week class in archaeology on Tuesdays, and all three kids go for piano lessons on Thursdays, followed by library story hour. Fridays may be the day that your family volunteers at the animal shelter or at the food pantry. Families who make liberal use of these kinds of resources work other academics around these outside activities. I have known many families who have found that their kids took off with Scouts and 4-H projects to the extent that they actually became a large part of their academic learning, so prioritizing them made sense. Just as a matter of practicality, outside activities aren’t going to bend to your personal schedule unless you are the organizer, so putting outside events on the calendar is just a reality, especially as children get older.

REPENT!

Ezekiel 18:21-23 says:

21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith the Lord GOD: [and] not that he should return from his ways, and live?

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Escape from judgment was possible. Sinners could avoid judgment if they repented of their sins by turning from them and kept God’s decrees. Ezekiel was not teaching salvation by works. First, he was speaking of a temporal deliverance from Babylon’s armies rather than eternal deliverance from the second death. Second, he clearly indicated that these righteous works would spring only from a “new heart and a new spirit”. Good works result from a changed life; they do not bring about such a change. Why would God allow a sinner who repented to avoid judgment? The answer lies in God’s character. He takes no pleasure in the death of the wicked. Instead, He is pleased when they turn from their ways. God is not a petty despot who holds grudges and longs to inflict punishment on those who wrong Him. As a God of grace He longs for people to forsake their wickedness and turn to His righteous ways.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “If we will do God’s work in God’s way at God’s time with God’s power, we shall have God’s blessing.”

That statistic could add thousands to the state’s official care home death toll of just over 6,600. But so far the administration of Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo has refused to divulge the number, leading to speculation the state is manipulating the figures to make it appear it is doing better than other states and to make a tragic situation less dire.

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 7

The Shift-Work Schedule
Some families have a parent who is working a more unusual shift or schedule, such as a hospital nurse or a firefighter who works three or four days on with three or four days off. Homeschooling can be coordinated to take place while the parent is working — if the other parent is an at-home parent doing the homeschooling. This way time off can be maximized with togetherness rather than worries about academics. Another approach may be scheduling the academics purposely during the off shift. This way, in a two-parent family, both parents can participate in the homeschooling, or in a single-parent family, the homeschooling can take place during time off with child care covering the work hours.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at any time. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at [email protected] and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please email that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

Hosea 10:12 says:

12 Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “A brief call to covenant loyalty is included here. Even in the midst of a message of condemnation and judgment God held out the possibility of repentance and blessing. Using agricultural imagery, He urged Israel to seek the Lord by cultivating righteousness (or justice) and reaping His unfailing love. The words showers righteousness compare God’s future gift of righteousness (or just treatment in the form of deliverance) to abundant rain.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “The man who can get believers to praying would, under God, usher in the greatest revival that the world has ever known.”

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 6

The University-Model Schedule
In some states, there are university-model homeschool co-ops where classes meet twice a week, using the same type of scheduling you’d commonly find on college campuses. A student might attend four classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and have Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to complete homework at home. At other such co-ops, a child might attend class four days a week, with a Monday/Wednesday set of classes and a Tuesday/Thursday set of classes.

REPENT!

Revelation 2:1-7 says:

1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.

4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “The Ephesians were first reminded to remember the height from which you have fallen! They were told to repent and to return to the love they had left. Similar exhortations concerning the need for a deep love for God are frequently found in the New Testament. Christ stated that one’s love for God should be greater than his love for his closest relatives, including his father, mother, son, and daughter. Paul added that love for God should even be above one’s love for his or her mate. In calling the Ephesian believers to repentance Christ was asking them to change their attitude as well as their affections. They were to continue their service not simply because it was right but because they loved Christ. He warned them that if they did not respond, the light of their witness in Ephesus would be extinguished: I will remove your lampstand from its place. The church continued and was later the scene of a major church council, but after the 5th century both the church and the city declined. The immediate area has been uninhabited since the 14th century.

One additional word of commendation was inserted. They were commended because they hated the practices of the Nicolaitans. There has been much speculation concerning the identity of the Nicolaitans, but the Scriptures do not specify who they were. They apparently were a sect wrong in practice and in doctrine.

As in the other letters, Christ gave the Ephesian church a promise addressed to individuals who will hear. He stated, To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. The tree of life, first mentioned in Genesis 3:22, was in the Garden of Eden. Later it reappears in the New Jerusalem where it bears abundant fruit. Those who eat of it will never die. This promise should not be construed as reward for only a special group of Christians but a normal expectation for all Christians. “The paradise of God” is probably a name for heaven. Apparently it will be identified with the New Jerusalem in the eternal state.

This encouragement to true love reminded them again of God’s gracious provision for salvation in time and eternity. Love for God is not wrought by legalistically observing commands, but by responding to one’s knowledge and appreciation of God’s love.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “The man who can get believers to praying would, under God, usher in the greatest revival that the world has ever known.”

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 5

The Co-op-Driven Schedule
Some families belong to academic co-ops that meet on a regular schedule, commonly once per week. While some co-ops are self-contained, with the kids doing enrichment learning at co-op with no expected follow-up, other co-ops have the core academic subjects. Students are expected to do assignments at home and study for tests given by co-op teachers. Parents will arrange their weekly schedules at home to help their children prepare for the coming classes at co-op. In my homeschooling life, I’ve been involved in Monday co-ops, Wednesday co-ops, and Thursday co-ops, some of which had homework expectations and some which did not, driven by the type of learning situation my kids wanted. If the co-op has the core academic classes a parent or child wants covered, then other academic interests that are independent of the co-op are also worked in around co-op homework, spread throughout the other days of the week.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “At the time this letter was written, Ephesus was a major city of Asia Minor, a seaport, and the location of the great temple of Artemis, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Paul had visited Ephesus about a.d. 53, about 43 years before this letter in Revelation was sent to them. Paul remained in Ephesus for several years and preached the gospel so effectively “that all the Jews and Greeks who lived in the province of Asia heard the word of the Lord”. This large city was thoroughly stirred by Paul’s message, with the result that the silversmiths created a riot because their business of making shrines of Artemis was threatened.

The church accordingly had a long history and was the most prominent one in the area. The pastor or messenger of the church was addressed as the angel. The word’s principal use in the Bible is in reference to heavenly angels. But it is also used to refer to human messengers.

Christ was holding seven stars in His right hand and walking among the seven golden lampstands. The “stars” were the angels or messengers of the churches and the “lampstands” were the seven churches.

Christ commended those in the Ephesian church for their hard work perseverance, their condemnation of wicked men, and their identification of false apostles. (False teachers were present in each of the first four churches.) In addition they were commended for enduring hardships and not growing weary in serving God. In general this church had continued in its faithful service to God for more than 40 years.
—————————-
In spite of the many areas of commendation, the church in Ephesus was soundly rebuked: Yet I hold this against you: you have forsaken your first love. The order of words in the Greek is emphatic; the clause could be translated, “Your first love you have left.” Christ used the word agapēn, speaking of the deep kind of love that God has for people. This rebuke contrasts with what Paul wrote the Ephesians 35 years earlier, that he never stopped giving thanks for them because of their faith in Christ and their love for the saints. Most of the Ephesian Christians were now second-generation believers, and though they had retained purity of doctrine and life and had maintained a high level of service, they were lacking in deep devotion to Christ. How the church today needs to heed this same warning, that orthodoxy and service are not enough. Christ wants believers’ hearts as well as their hands and heads.
————————————————————————————————————————————————-
The Ephesians were first reminded to remember the height from which you have fallen! They were told to repent and to return to the love they had left. Similar exhortations concerning the need for a deep love for God are frequently found in the New Testament. Christ stated that one’s love for God should be greater than his love for his closest relatives, including his father, mother, son, and daughter. Paul added that love for God should even be above one’s love for his or her mate. In calling the Ephesian believers to repentance Christ was asking them to change their attitude as well as their affections. They were to continue their service not simply because it was right but because they loved Christ. He warned them that if they did not respond, the light of their witness in Ephesus would be extinguished: I will remove your lampstand from its place. The church continued and was later the scene of a major church council, but after the 5th century both the church and the city declined. The immediate area has been uninhabited since the 14th century.

One additional word of commendation was inserted. They were commended because they hated the practices of the Nicolaitans. There has been much speculation concerning the identity of the Nicolaitans, but the Scriptures do not specify who they were. They apparently were a sect wrong in practice and in doctrine.

As in the other letters, Christ gave the Ephesian church a promise addressed to individuals who will hear. He stated, To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God. The tree of life, first mentioned in Genesis 3:22, was in the Garden of Eden. Later it reappears in the New Jerusalem where it bears abundant fruit. Those who eat of it will never die. This promise should not be construed as reward for only a special group of Christians but a normal expectation for all Christians. “The paradise of God” is probably a name for heaven. Apparently it will be identified with the New Jerusalem in the eternal state.

This encouragement to true love reminded them again of God’s gracious provision for salvation in time and eternity. Love for God is not wrought by legalistically observing commands, but by responding to one’s knowledge and appreciation of God’s love.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “Sodom, which had no Bible, no preachers, no tracts, no prayer meetings, no churches, perished. How then will America and England be spared from the wrath of the Almighty, think you? We have millions of Bibles, scores of thousands of churches, endless preachers—and yet what sin!”

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 4

The One-Subject-a-Day-Plus Schedule
The parents and/or kids in these families like delving deeply into one subject per day, but they also want to do some of certain specific subjects every day. So the “plus” is commonly math practice, memory work practice, and/or language arts. So they’ll spend time every homeschooling day doing those added (“plus”) things, followed by one other subject. So, on Mondays they might do math and spelling, followed by science. On Tuesdays they might do math and grammar, followed by history. On Wednesdays they might do math and writing, followed by geography. And so on. For a younger child, the language arts portion might be a reading lesson or reading practice each day. For a child who wants to write or who needs practice, it might be writing each day. Memory work, which is an approach some families might take for learning facts like state names and locations, multiplication tables, geologic time periods, or U.S. presidents, is obviously something that works better when revisited frequently.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at anytime. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at [email protected] and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please e-mail that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #106. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

REPENT!

Revelation 2:1-7 says:

1 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;

2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

3 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.

4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.

5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.

7 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.

Rod and Staff Review from thehomeschoolmom.com

Rod & Staff curriculum is designed to make the child God-conscious. This curriculum not only teaches the Bible but uses many illustrations of how Bible principles can be applied in everyday life. The various courses are comprised of texts, workbooks, and teacher guides. The science text is written from the perspective that evolution is “logically and mathematically impossible.”

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 3

The One-Subject-a-Day Schedule
Other families divide their learning into traditional school subjects and address one subject each day. For example, they might do math on Mondays, English on Tuesdays, science on Wednesdays, social studies on Thursdays, and electives or “anything else” on Fridays (art, music, foreign language, etc.). The order might vary from family to family, but the idea is to focus on one subject more thoroughly and in-depth on each day.

REPENT!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “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. ”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “God then encouraged Solomon by the promise that if His judgment (by drought, locusts, or a plague) should fall on the nation for their sin, they need only turn to the Lord in earnest humility and repentance and they would find forgiveness and restoration. This promise, in answer to Solomon’s prayer, was given because God’s presence among His people Israel is eternal, focused particularly on the temple. The covenant theme comes through clearly in the Lord’s declaration that if Solomon would obey Him he could be assured of God’s reciprocal blessing in the perpetuation of his dynastic rule. Conversely, if Solomon and the nation should fall away from the Lord and serve other gods they would be exiled and their magnificent temple destroyed. This does not suggest that the Davidic Covenant is conditional from God’s standpoint. He had said it would be forever. But Solomon’s (or any king’s) enjoyment of it would depend on his obedience to God. Later Solomon did worship other gods, as did many of his successors, so the nation was exiled to Babylon and the temple destroyed. Everyone who would witness the desolation of the land and the temple would know that it was a mark of God’s judgment on His people because of their sin.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “We have adopted the convenient theory that the Bible is a Book to be explained, whereas first and foremost it is a Book to be believed (and after that to be obeyed).”

Some families do traditional academics Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday and leave the fifth day free. This often morphs into “Field Trip Fridays,” either as families or members of the same homeschool group or co-op plan field trips for the end of the week. Even though some families may not take a field trip every Friday, they leave that day open for errands, appointments, library day, and a head start on weekend trips. Some curricula offer both four- and five-day plans, built right into their materials.

What Is a Good Schedule for Homeschooling?, Part 1

The Traditional Five-Day Week Schedule
Yes, many homeschoolers follow the same schedule as schools, doing five or more academic subjects each day for all five week-days. This can feel familiar, and many curricula make the assumption that this is the schedule you’ll follow, so if you’re big into pre-planning and use a formal curriculum, the five-day school week may be the schedule for you.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at anytime. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “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. ”

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “God then encouraged Solomon by the promise that if His judgment (by drought, locusts, or a plague) should fall on the nation for their sin, they need only turn to the Lord in earnest humility and repentance and they would find forgiveness and restoration. This promise, in answer to Solomon’s prayer, was given because God’s presence among His people Israel is eternal, focused particularly on the temple. The covenant theme comes through clearly in the Lord’s declaration that if Solomon would obey Him he could be assured of God’s reciprocal blessing in the perpetuation of his dynastic rule. Conversely, if Solomon and the nation should fall away from the Lord and serve other gods they would be exiled and their magnificent temple destroyed. This does not suggest that the Davidic Covenant is conditional from God’s standpoint. He had said it would be forever. But Solomon’s (or any king’s) enjoyment of it would depend on his obedience to God. Later Solomon did worship other gods, as did many of his successors, so the nation was exiled to Babylon and the temple destroyed. Everyone who would witness the desolation of the land and the temple would know that it was a mark of God’s judgment on His people because of their sin.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “If we had more sleepless nights in prayer, there would be fewer souls to have a sleepless eternal night in hell.”

How to Stay the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #102

THERE IS MORE SAID IN THE PODCAST AUDIO THAN IN THE NOTES BELOW

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #102. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

Joshua 22:16-18 says, “Thus saith the whole congregation of the LORD, What trespass is this that ye have committed against the God of Israel, to turn away this day from following the LORD, in that ye have builded you an altar, that ye might rebel this day against the LORD? Is the iniquity of Peor too little for us, from which we are not cleansed until this day, although there was a plague in the congregation of the LORD, But that ye must turn away this day from following the LORD? and it will be, seeing ye rebel to day against the LORD, that to morrow he will be wroth with the whole congregation of Israel.”

Matthew Henry said, “It is good to recollect and improve those instances of the wrath of God, revealed from heaven against the ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, which have fallen out in our own time, and which we ourselves have been eye-witnesses of. He reminds them of the iniquity of Peor, As a very great sin, and very provoking to God. The building of this altar seemed but a small matter, but it might lead to an iniquity as bad as that of Peor, and therefore must be crushed in its first rise. Note, The remembrance of great sins committed formerly should engage us to stand upon our guard against the least occasions and beginnings of sin; for the way of sin is down-hill. As a sin that the whole congregation had smarted for: “There was a plague in the congregation of the Lord, of which, in one day, there died no fewer than 24,000; was not that enough for ever to warn you against idolatry? What! will you bring upon yourselves another plague? Are you so mad upon an idolatrous altar that you will run yourselves thus upon the sword’s point of God’s judgments? Does not our camp still feel from that sin and the punishment of it? We are not cleansed from it unto this day; there are remaining sparks,” First, “Of the infection of that sin; some among us so inclined to idolatry that if you set up another altar they will soon take occasion from that, whether you intend it or no, to worship another God.” Secondly, “Of the wrath of God against us for that sin. We have reason to fear that, if we provoke God by another sin to visit, he will remember against us the iniquity of Peor, as he threatened to do that of the golden calf. And dare you wake the sleeping lion of divine vengeance?” Note, It is a foolish and dangerous thing for people to think their former sins little, too little for them, as those do who add sin to sin, and so treasure up wrath against the day of wrath. Let therefore the time past suffice.”

REPENT!

2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “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. ”

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “The Church right now has more fashion than passion, is more pathetic than prophetic, is more superficial than supernatural.”

Deuteronomy 29:22-23 says, “So that the generation to come of your children that shall rise up after you, and the stranger that shall come from a far land, shall say, when they see the plagues of that land, and the sicknesses which the LORD hath laid upon it; And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath:”

Matthew Henry said, “The ruin begins with plagues and sicknesses, to try if they will be reclaimed by less judgments; but, if not, it ends in a total overthrow, like that of Sodom. As that valley, which had been like the garden of the Lord for fruitfulness, was turned into a lake of salt and sulphur, so should the land of Canaan be made desolate and barren, as it has been ever since the last destruction of it by the Romans. The lake of Sodom bordered closely upon the land of Israel, that by it they might be warned against the iniquity of Sodom; but, not taking the warning, they were made as like to Sodom in ruin as they had been in sin.”

HOMESCHOOLING

Homeschooling Styles, Part 2 from thehomeschoolmom.com

Homeschoolers often classify themselves under different methods, and if you are new to the whole idea of homeschooling you might be confused by some of the terms you will hear (school at home/textbook-oriented, classical homeschooling, eclectic or relaxed homeschooling, online or virtual school, unit studies, Waldorf, Montessori, Moore Formula, Charlotte Mason, unschooling).

When you mention homeschooling, many people instantly imagine denim jumpers, large families, and kids sitting around the kitchen table with textbooks all day. The reality is a little more… realistic. There are endless ways to homeschool, as well as countless reasons to do so. There definitely aren’t any typical homeschool families. Unless “different” counts as “typical.”

There are several popular homeschool styles. Many families opt for eclectic homeschooling, which is a fancy way of saying they cobble together parts of several styles that work for their family. Families who homeschool for more than a couple of years will often work their way through several of these methods.

THERE IS MORE SAID IN THE PODCAST AUDIO THAN IN THE NOTES BELOW

Welcome to the How to Stay and Survive the Coronavirus Plague Briefing Podcast #100. My name is Daniel Whyte III, president of Gospel Light Society International.

Numbers 16:46-50 says:

46 And Moses said unto Aaron, Take a censer, and put fire therein from off the altar, and put on incense, and go quickly unto the congregation, and make an atonement for them: for there is wrath gone out from the Lord; the plague is begun.

47 And Aaron took as Moses commanded, and ran into the midst of the congregation; and, behold, the plague was begun among the people: and he put on incense, and made an atonement for the people.

48 And he stood between the dead and the living; and the plague was stayed.

49 Now they that died in the plague were fourteen thousand and seven hundred, beside them that died about the matter of Korah.

50 And Aaron returned unto Moses unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation: and the plague was stayed.

The Bible Knowledge Commentary says, “Rather than achieving the expected end, however, the exhibition of the Lord’s wrath only led to more complaining by the people. As they pressed their opposition against Moses and Aaron, the Lord again appeared in His glory at the tabernacle, told Moses to step aside, and once more threatened to destroy the nation. Again, in abject humility and deference, Moses and Aaron prostrated themselves before the Lord. This time, however, Moses undertook measures to forestall the divine judgment. He urged Aaron to take his censer and rush into the midst of the assembly of Israelites and there seek God’s atoning grace. But when Aaron arrived he found the plague—evidence of God’s wrath—had already begun and that many were dead. Nevertheless he offered the incense. By the time the plague stopped 14,700 people had died. Then Aaron returned to Moses at the tabernacle. Since incense was symbolic of prayer, Aaron in effect was appearing among the people to intercede in prayer for them. It must have been clear to all that one censer in the hand of a man of God far excelled 250 in the hands of that many sinners.”

Leonard Ravenhill said, “No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.”

Homeschooling Styles

There are so many ways to homeschool; homeschoolers call the different approaches homeschooling styles or homeschooling methods. Different styles work for different families because their situations and their children are different. You will find one person who loves a particular approach and then another person who finds fault with the same approach. People often start out with one approach and evolve to a different approach, or they combine aspects of several approaches and call themselves eclectic homeschoolers. It’s not unusual for new homeschool parents to try to replicate school at first and switch approaches when they encounter resistance.

Now, if you are with us today and you do not know Jesus Christ as your Savior, allow me to show you how you can place your faith and trust in Him for Salvation from sin and Hell.

First, please understand that you are a sinner and that you have broken God’s laws. The Bible says in Romans 3:23: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Please understand that because of your sins, you deserve punishment in hell. Romans 6:23 says “the wages of sin is death…” This is both physical death and spiritual death in hell.

But here is the good news. John 3:16 reads, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The phrase “For God so loved the world” means that if you are in this world, God loves you no matter what you have done.

The next phrase, “that He gave His only begotten Son” refers to Jesus Christ. He is God’s son who suffered, bled, and died on the cross for your sins and for mine, and He was buried and rose again.

Our next phrase is “that whosoever believeth in Him”. The word “whosoever” means anybody at anytime. The phrase “believeth in Him” means to trust in Him, to depend upon Him, to rely on Him, or to have faith in Him for your salvation.

Our next phrase, “should not perish”, refers to eternal punishment in a place called hell.

And, lastly, the phrase “but have everlasting life” means to live eternally in Heaven with God.

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the Cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour! For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light Society.com and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

If you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior today, please email me at [email protected] and let us know. There is some free material that we want to send you. If you have a prayer request, please e-mail that to us as well, and we will pray for you until you tell us to stop.

God loves you. We love you. And may God bless you.
