Nebuchadnezzar made an image of gold on the plain of Dura. It was commanded publicly that when the appropriate signal was given that all would "fall down and worship the golden image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up: And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning fiery furnace" (Daniel 3:5-6). God's people at this time were in captivity and subjected to the rule of Nebuchadnezzar.

Daniel, and three young Hebrew men named Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah had risen to prominence in those trying times and in those trying conditions (Daniel 1:17-21). It was found that their wisdom and understanding were ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm (Dan. 1:20). These three young men, whose names were changed Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, were set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, but Daniel sat in the gate of the king" (Daniel 2:49). . . .

Digital Library

The Mt. Vernon Church of Christ is building a digital library to aid serious Bible students in their study.  When possible, we will be adding new volumes.  We are grateful to the many sources from which we draw these volumes for making these available.  We take no credit for them ourselves.  We do not necesarrily endorse everything in every volume.  We simply provide them as aids to Bible study.  This week:
 

Bible Wines - William Patton

The church of the Bible is not a denomination. In fact, the only reference to denominationalism in the New Testament condemns division (I Cor. 1:10-13). Many and various are the teachings of denominations concerning their thoughts on God’s plan for saving the world. The different plans offered by men do not change God’s divine plan in the least. Some teach babies should be baptized” (sprinkled); or, the sinner should pray instead of obey; or, faith alone saves, which is expressly condemned in the Bible (Jas. 2:14, 17, 20, 22, 24, 26); or, that Jesus saves and not the church, and one can be saved outside as well as in the church of Christ. None of these are the plan brought to earth by God. God sent His only begotten Son to seek and save the lost (Jn. 3:16; Lk. 19:10). God’s plan was that Jesus should seek the lost by establishing the church. . . .

Golden Thought

The devil loves to fish in troubled waters.

THE INDISPENSIBLE MAN

Sometime when you're feeling important;
Sometime when your ego 's in bloom;
Sometime when you take it for granted,
You're the best qualified in the room:
Sometime when you feel that your going,
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow these simple instructions,
And see how they humble your soul.  

Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that's remaining,
Is a measure of how much you'll be missed.
You can splash all you wish when you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop, and you'll find that in no time,
It looks quite the same as before.  

The moral of this quaint example,
Is to do just the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself but remember,
There's no indispensable man.



~~Saxon White Kessinger

Bible Question of the Week
(All questions come from the Scripture readings.)

What did Joshua say would happen to those who "fosake the Lord and serve strange gods"?

Answer To Last Week's Question:
Who asked the question "Is the Lord among us, or not" and why?

Exodus 17:6,7 - And Moses did so in the sight of the elders of Israel.  And he called the name of the place Massah, and Meribah, because of the chiding of the children of Israel, and because they tempted the LORD, saying, Is the LORD among us, or not?
