Interviewing Rikki LeGrand – Part 2

Last Thursday, dear ones, we dropped part one of a two part interview with Rikki LeGrand. We hope that her story, growing up Catholic, being deceived by the WoF movement, and eventually hearing Biblical truth, will be encouraging for anyone who has loved ones stuck in either of those works based religions. We know how discouraging it is to see your loved ones lost or confused, please let us join you in praying for anyone you might be concerned about by telling us about them in the comments below.

If you missed the Shenanigans in our last episode, you’ll be glad to know they’re safely tucked into the end of this one. Not to mention the most bloopers I’ve ever had for the end reel. We hope that those little nuggets of silliness will bring the joy and laughter that only bloopers can! Below is a time stamped outline, that we hope will be helpful for anyone who wants to skip through the interview to certain points. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as PodbeaniTunesSpotifyGoogle PlayiHeart RadioStitcher, and in video form (eventually) on Youtube. We also now have a Patreon page, which you can find here https://www.patreon.com/Tulipshoneyhub. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Interviewing Rikki LeGrand – Part I

Today, dear ones, we had the joy of interviewing a sweet sister-in-Christ and beloved friend, Rikki LeGrand. Ms. LeGrand was raised Catholic, but after a period of deep depression she found herself deceived by the Word of Faith movement. God graciously saved her, and she was kind enough to detail how He led her out of that deception. It never ceases to amaze me how patient our God is with us! It took a couple years, but eventually Rikki was able to walk away from the WoF deception altogether.

Lindsay Davis Quote

It is our hope and prayer that this conversation will be helpful to any that are coming out of the WoF movement. We’ve felt the confusion, and the frustration that can come from realizing you’ve been deceived by family or friends, or people you trusted.

Hello, dear friends, I hope this post finds you all doing well! Today I’m excited to have our interview with Susan Heck ready to view, or listen to.

And Did the Holy and the Just – Anne Steele

As I mentioned last Sunday, dear friends, I wanted to spend some time highlighting Anne Steele’s hymns. Today is another one from her, and while it was never as popular as the last, it’s just as beautiful and God glorifying. I hope these words bless you, as they blessed me, and that you all have a sweet day of fellowship. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

1 And did the holy and the just,
The sovereign of the skies,
Stoop down to wretchedness and dust,
That guilty man might rise?

2 Yes, the Redeemer left his throne–
His radiant throne on high–
Surprising mercy! love unknown!
To suffer, bleed, and die.

3 To dwell with misery here below,
The Saviour left the skies,
And sank to wretchedness and woe,
That worthless man might rise.

4 He took the dying traitor’s place,
And suffered in his stead:
For sinful man–oh, wondrous grace!
For sinful man he bled.

5 O Lord, what heavenly wonders dwell
In thine atoning blood!
By this are sinners saved from hell,
And rebels brought to God.

Ok Ladies – Let's Talk About the Women Teaching Today

Hello, dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well. Today Becca and I dropped an episode where we discuss several of the leading influences on women today. This includes Paula White, Beth Moore, Hollywood in the form of a certain halftime show, Jen Wilkin, and thankfully some Biblically sound teachers as well. We hope that this episode will be a blessing to you all, and that it will highlight the need for women to be taught theology. It wouldn’t be Tulips & Honey without some silliness, so we do try and lighten up these serious topics with some shenanigans as well as the recent addition of bloopers at the end.

We initially began planning for this episode when we saw a concerning post from Proverbss 31 Ministries that flipped the Gospel upside down. They were promoting salvation based on the fulfillment of your hearts desires, and to our surprise and deep concern, hundreds of women were proclaiming agreement. It reminded us of the need for better theological education for women, and the need to warn about these wolves. We hope that this will be helpful to both groups of listeners, and that this will encourage husbands, fathers, elders, and Pastors alike to be diligently vetted the learning recourses being geared towards women in your life. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as PodbeaniTunesSpotifyGoogle PlayiHeart RadioStitcher, and in video form (eventually) on Youtube. We also now have a Patreon page, which you can find here https://www.patreon.com/Tulipshoneyhub. Below is a timestamped outline so that you can follow along, or skip ahead as needed. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Prayer Request: Meg Curry, the sister-in-Christ who we ask for prayer at the beginning of this episode, has lost her daughter Everleigh. We have been given permission to openly ask for prayer for her, and to share a GoFundMe account that we started to help support her. You can find more information about that here: gf.me/u/ximjpw

The Mark of Christ on a Young Man – with Troy Paylor

Hello, dear ones, I hope this post finds you all doing well. Today we’ve dropped an episode with another very exciting announcement. Our young brother-in-Christ, Troy from ChristMarked, joined us in the program for a Bible study on 1 John 1:1-14 as well as allowing us to get to know him better. He walked us through his testimony, and how he came to decide to go to seminary, to blog, and now to podcast. We hope that this new Scripturally focused podcast will be edifying to you all, as it certainly was for us.

While Becca and I are uncomfortable teaching through God’s Word with our mixed audience, we’re happy to have Troy join us and lead us through a study of Scripture. We’re also honored to be able to announce he will be joining our podcasting channel, dubbed the Hub, where he’ll be making his way through the Bible. You can, of course, listen across all major podcasting platforms such as Podbean, iTunes, Spotify, Google Play, iHeart Radio, Stitcher, and in video form (eventually) on Youtube. We also now have a Patreon page, which you can find here https://www.patreon.com/Tulipshoneyhub. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

b. 9 The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own,[b] and his own people[c] did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son[d] from the Father, full of grace and truth.

When I Survey Life’s Varied Scene – Anne Steele

I hope this finds you all doing well, dear ones. I’m so excited to discuss the sister who wrote this hymn. Anne Steele (1717-1778) published this hymn in 1760, although it was written much earlier in her life. There are two version of this song, the short one and the long one. I find both to be absolutely, breathtakingly, encouraging. You see, beloved, Anne was an invalid, and it’s been long believed that she had malaria. Still it’s said that she was lively, joyful, and always interested in a discussion of theology. She wrote this hymn after her fiancé died, drowning on the day they were to marry. Although she was proposed to by another hymn writer later in her life, she remained unmarried. This hymn was written at a time when trusting Gods sovereignty must have been difficult. I hope this blesses you as much as it blessed Becca and I.

Anne Steele Hymn by Becca Barner

When I Survey Life’s Varied Scene

I. When I survey life’s varied scene,
Amid the darkest hours,
Sweet rays of comfort shine between,
And thorns are mix’d with flowers.

II. Lord, teach me to adore thy hand,
From whence my comforts flow;
And let me in this desert land
A glimpse of Canaan know.

III. Is health and ease my happy share?
O may I bless my God;
Thy kindness let my songs declare,
And spread thy praise abroad.

IV. While such delightful gifts as these,
Are kindly dealt to me,
Be all my hours of health and ease
Devoted, Lord, to thee.

V. In griefs and pains thy sacred word,
(Dear solace of my soul!)
Celestial comforts can afford,
And all their pow’r control.

VI. When present suff’rings pain my heart,
Or future terrors rise,
And light and hope almost depart
From these dejected eyes,

VII. Thy pow’rful word supports my hope,
Sweet cordial of the mind!
And bears my fainting spirit up,
And bids me wait resign’d.

VIII. And O, whate’er of earthly bliss
Thy sov’reign hand denies,
Accepted at thy throne of grace,
Let this petition rise:

IX. “Give me a calm, a thankful heart,
From ev’ry murmur free;
The blessings of thy grace impart,
And let me live to thee.”

X. “Let the sweet hope that thou art mine,
My path of life attend;
Thy presence through my journey shine,
And bless its happy end.”

Today the shortened version of this hymn, entitled Father, Whate’er of Earthly Bliss, is more often in use. Both are beautiful, although I’m partial to the longer version. I couldn’t find the longer version being song, so here’s a choir singing the shorter version.
