The MEGA Listundefined

Hello, and Happy Valentines Day, dear ones! I hope this post finds you all doing well. Do you have big plans with your loved ones today? We are going to push most of our fun off until tomorrow. My hubby worked a nightshift last night and has a doctors appointment early this morning before he can rest. Please pray for him, he had a rare reaction to a new medication. We would greatly appreciate your prayers, as the appointment today will include running tests to make sure no long term damage was done. With that being said, let’s dig right into the MEGA list for today. We’ve got some really exciting things to discuss, and review. One thing I keep failing to mention is that we’re also talking about this list each Friday over on our YouTube channel. Sometimes we even take it live, although I’m still learning how to do that.

Recommendations

For today’s recommendations I want to start with a very unique item I found for sale on Amazon. It’s a sermon notes journal…for kids! Isn’t that cute? Kayliegh takes notes during Sunday service, either in the booklet prepared or in her own notebook. I think it would be really fun for her to have her own, and these are created by The Biblical Creative, a wonderful friend and Instagrammer. You can find more at her website, thebiblicalcreative.com. We’d also like to recommend you accept our invitation to follow our book club over at Goodreads, by following this link here. You can keep up with what we’re reading, and read about upcoming book club options happening on with our Patreon’s. One last recommendation is that you check out our Q&A Mini Episodes over on our YouTube channel, and don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss anymore fun content.

Reviews

There is a new LivingWaters movie I’d like to review today, titled When It’s Okay to Kill Your Mother, which you can watch free here. In this film Ray Comfort is going through the college campus asking about a man who was not convicted for murder, after tossing his mother over the balcony. Why wasn’t he convicted? She was dying, and suffering, so the judge ruled it was okay to kill her. In full LivingWaters fashion, this is a Gospel tract in movie form. Not only does it deal with the depravity of man, and the sanctity of life, but it presents the Gospel. They’ve also re-released their movie on suicide, owing to the fact that the previous title did not seem to have fit with what they were hoping to achieve. You can watch You Are Not Alone: Hope for Your Depression here.

Suggestions

If you’ve followed Paul Washers HeartCry Missionaries Youtube channel you may have already heard that they are going to be releasing some different content than their usual. For this, they’ve created a new channel, called Heartcry Films. My suggestion for this weekend is that you subscribe to their new channel, and pray for their team as they prepare to launch this new part of their ministry. As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Friday Mega List – Recommendations, Reviews, and Suggestions: October 3rd, 2019

Don’t miss the sneak peak clip from my recent interview with Ray Comfort of LivingWaters

***Important Note: to create a more streamline look between the website, social media, and the blog there will be a name change. I’ll be updating the blogs name this weekend, it will be Tulips & Honey Hub from here on out.***

It’s Reformation month already? That’s crazy. This year has zipped by. Kayliegh will be turning 9 in less than two weeks, which is hard to believe when I just brought her home from the hospital what feels like yesterday! October always comes around too quickly. Before I get emotional, let’s get to the Mega List! Coming up next week on the Tulips & Honey Podcast will be an encouraging interview with Emma from MyRedemptionForHisGlory blog. She tells us about growing up in the church, God saving her, and her journey to blogging. Thursday, Lord willing, we’ll be dropping an episode on Suffering Well. As you know, Becca suffers from chronic pain that has only recently begun to let up. In that episode we give advice for how to help others suffering, and how to suffer well ourselves.

Also, because you guys have literally been supporting this podcast from day one with your prayers and encouragement, I pulled a bit of the Ray Comfort Interview early. The only way to get the video to post here on WP was to post it first on YouTube. I had wanted to make it exclusive for you all, but this was as close as I could get. Every time I was discouraged your comments pushed me forward. The Ray Comfort Interview wouldn’t have happened if not for so many brothers and sisters in Christ praying for me. Thank you all for your wondering kindness and support!

Recommendations this week start with this awesome article from Answers in Genesis regarding Saturns Rings. What an amazing creation God has made! My next recommendation is that you watch and share the beautiful act of Christian forgiveness and love shown by Brandt Jean when facing his brothers killer in court. Even the judge was in tears when he pleaded to have the opportunity to embrace her. You can’t hear what he’s saying to her, but I suspect he’s praying for her. Check it out here, and join me in ignoring the Social Justice Warriors who are attempting to take this gracious act and make it about race.

Today I’d like to review the book I interviewed Ray Comfort about. Faith is for Weak People: Answering the top 20 Objections to the Gospel. This book is set up almost like a text book, with questions at the end of each chapter. There are 20 chapters, each addressing an objection Ray has heard while evangelizing. He gives responses that show his humility, and love for the lost. You can find it in paperback, kindle, or audio here. I would recommend this book for all ages, but particularly I think it would work great for small groups and youth groups.

Suggestions? My suggestion to you for the weekend is that you learn something new about the Reformation. It’s Reformation month, after all! As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.

Movie Review – American Gospel: Christ Alone

Hello dear friends! Today I want to review the documentary American Gospel: Christ Alone which was released in October 2018. This film was written and directed by Brandon Kimber, and can be found for rent on Vimeo. Unless you’re wanting to purchase this in DVD form, I have yet to find another source showing the documentary thus far. That might change in a few months, if so I’ll update this post. As you can see from the trailer below, it’s packed full of some heavy hitters.

While the documentary does mainly tackle the prosperity gospel, it also address Roman Catholicism and the dangers of ecumenism. It also goes further than just refuting prosperity preachers, but also shows the damage done by the Word of Faith movement. There is, in particular, one young lady whose journey from atheism to born again believer winds through a dramatic health crisis. You see her in the trailer with tubes in her nose. Her, and her husband, were both saved because of her many illnesses which alone destroys the idea that God does not use sickness or pain to draw His lost sheep to Himself. There are others who went into financial ruin, others who just did not understand that true Gospel of grace, and some who felt guilt and pressure from being told their problems were due to their lack of faith. All the while good, sound, Biblically accurate theology is being explained between interviews. All together, this makes for a very powerful two and a half hours of documentary.

A couple things need to be mentioned, before I get ahead of myself. One, with men like Dr. Steve Lawson and Dr. MacArthur, Ray Comfort, and Paul Washer, we feel the absence of one man of God. R.C. Sproul. This is one of the first major collaborations done since he went on to glory, and his wisdom and love for Gods Word was missed. We rejoice that he has finished his pilgrimage, he ran his race well, yet those of us who remain feel the lose. The second thing is that, with so many pastors involved in this documentary, it’s very likely there may be someone included you’ve come to disagree with in one way or another. I hope that doesn’t discourage you from watching, and sharing, this tremendous resource.

Not only does this video repeat the Gospel several times, making it evangelical gold, it also explains the whys, where’s, and how’s that we might not be able to get to within a short Gospel presentation. If you have family, friends, or co-workers that hold to a prosperity gospel, WoF, NAR, or Roman Catholicism, this documentary would be a great opportunity to open dialogue. Ask them to watch this if they can, it’s only $4.99 to rent right now, and then ask what they thought of it. Maybe even consider purchasing a copy to share. This documentary would be great for a youth movie night, women or men’s study, or a family event. In other words, dear ones, I recommend this to everyone! Especially if you feel like your understanding of a Biblical Gospel presentation is lacking. Have you watched this yet, brothers and sisters? If so, let me know what you think! As always, beloved brethren, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
