Job 1:21-22
And said, Naked came I out of my mothers womb, and naked shall I return thither: the
Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.
In all this Job sinned not, nor charged God foolishly.

What is it about Job that makes us think we cannot compare ourselves
to his troubles? Was it because God said he was a perfect, an upright man, who
feared God and hated evil! Do we feel like we cannot claim those characteristics
for ourselves? This book was not written only for those who fit Jobs character,
but for all of us who are servants of God. God used a man without spot so we
could see that trouble comes to all, even Job! When troubles come to us, our first
thought is, What did I do to deserve this? God is telling us with Jobs story
that there are times that we might not be the cause of our troubles. It could be
that God is calling us to show the greatness of His work through our lives. Satan
doesnt think that we believers will allow God to do things in our lives that we
do not understand. Satan is out to show our deficiencies in our faith. He wants
to reveal how small our faith is and how soon we will depart from it. God then
entrust us with testing to reveal the power of our faith to Satan and to the whole

Job goes materially bankrupt to start with. At the time of being reduced
to nothing materially, he looses his children and many of his servants. Job believed that everything in his hands, his material goods and the children he had
produced, were from the hand of God. God had given them and God had the right
to take them away. That didnt mean that Job did not suffer with these loses, it
meant he accepted it as the work of God and he trusted God to be righteous in all
His works.

What about us? Daily we are either gaining material goods or we are
loosing material goods. Most of us never come to full loss, but we deal with partial losses daily. Gloria and I went to a Cowboy Camp meeting this week. We felt
sure that God had spoken that we were to be there this year. God did not provide
the money for gas until the night before. We laughed and rejoiced at the way
God provided, and then about half way to the camp the next day, our car began

Thomas Jefferson knew because he himself studied the previous
failed attempts at government. He
understood actual history, the nature
of God, His laws and the nature of
man. That happens to be way more
than what most understand today.

Jefferson really knew his
stuff. A voice from the past to lead
us in the future:

John F. Kennedy held a dinner in the White House for a group of
the brightest minds in the nation at
that time. He made these statements:
This is perhaps the assembly of the
most intelligence ever to gather at one
time in the White House with the exception of when Thomas Jefferson
dined alone.

missing and we had to turn around and drive back home to get our other car.
While rejoicing over one provision, another major need comes on the scene. That
is Satans way of attempting to destroy our joy and bring us back to worry and
anxiousness. You would think our first thought would be to remember just how
God had provided the night before. His provision the day before should encourage us that God will be there for all our needs today. Job believed this and willingly excepted Gods work in his life.
Job 2:4-6
And Satan answered the Lord, and said, Skin for skin, yea, all that a man hath will
he give for his life.
But put forth thine hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will curse
thee to thy face.
And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, he is in thine hand; but save his life.

Now we come to another testing. Its one thing to lose all your material
goods, but what about your health, which threatens your life? Satan told God,
Job will curse you to your face if you let me touch his skin and bones. So God
took the challenge and allowed Satan to go further, but he could not kill Job.

Job wished he could die. Dying would have been much easier than living
at that point. But God continued to give him life. His wife told him that the only
way she knew to get him out of this pain was to just curse God and let God kill
him. Why hold on to your integrity at this point? Job said, You speak like one
of the foolish women. That was foolish talk to Job, because he believed his life
was in Gods hand and it was Gods right to decide when he should live or die.

There are many people committing suicide today because of not wanting
to live the life they have created, or the life God has called them to walk. Many
suicide victims claim to believe and trust in God, yet they take the position of God
and take their own lives. Many of the men of God in the Bible begged God to take
their lives, but they never spoke of taking their own lives. There was one man
who knew that God had allowed his counsel to fail and that soon he would die at
the hands of the king. He went home and got his house in order and set it on fire.
Taking our own lives is the height of playing God in our lives and playing God is
what gets us in trouble.

Job never turned on God. His three friends stopped what they were doing and made an appointment to come and mourn and comfort Job. How many
friends do you have like that? They didnt even recognize Job when they got
there. For seven days they all sat in ashes and didnt say a word. Wow! Not sure
I have a friend that could do that! Im not sure I could be quiet for seven days. As
long as they were quiet, the three friends were accomplishing what they came to
do. It wasnt until Job opened his mouth that the opinions began to fly. Once we
share our troubles out loud we might as well expecte our friends to put their two
cents worth in. After all, why tell someone if you dont want their opinion?

Yes, there are two places were Satan tries our faith. That is the works of
our hands and our health. This is what our lives are all about. Who wants to see
everything you have worked for fall apart? How many of us struggle with putting

our life before our worship. The hardest thing we do is lay down our lives on
the altar and let God have His way.

You see, Jobs trials were not
so different from our trials. The difference is, Job did not depart from his
faith. Job would not curse God and die,
but instead he cursed the day he was
born! Job kept trying to justify himself
because he couldnt see anything he
had done to call for these trials. Every
time we attempt to toot our own horn
all of our short comings begin to stand
out. His friends tried to point out his
possible failures so they could come
up with a reason why God had allowed
all of this. They believed you had to
have done something wrong before you
could go through testing. That might
have been what we believe if we had
not read the book of Job!

While they had some very interesting discussions, they didnt solve
a thing. I think about all the talk shows
we have today. Everyone wants to give
their opinion and we all want to evaluate their comments. In the end, our
problems still exist and our friends cannot solve them. We have lots of truths
to speak about, but if God doesnt bring
deliverance, we are stranded! Sometimes I wish God would start talking
to the people on the talk shows like He
did to Job. America needs to hear from
God today.

I dont know where you are
in life today, but if you are not being
tested, you will be. The trying of our
faith is more precious than gold! God
is doing us a favour by testing our faith.
While testing our faith He will only do
that which is good for us. You may ask,
What is good about loosing your children. We dont lose our children. God
changed where they live. We only lose
the privilege of being with them daily
here on earth. All of us will die. When
and how is up to God and He only does
that which is good for the one He is taking and those left behind. One day we
will understand and say, Well done!

2 Kings 4:42-44
And there came a man from Baal-shalisha, and brought the man of God
bread of the firstfruits, twenty loaves of barley, and full ears of corn in the
husk thereof. And he said, Give unto the people, that they may eat.
And his servitor said, What, should I set this before an hundred men? He
said again, Give the people, that they may eat: for thus saith the Lord, They
shall eat, and shall leave thereof.
So he set it before them, and they did eat, and left thereof, according to the
word of the Lord.

This story reminds us of the feeding of the people in the New Testament.
Its a real miracle when God multiplies our goods. It amazes me, when I do what
God tells me to do, how He makes my dollars go a mile down the road, but when I
forget to seek His will and His way, I dont seem to get out of the driveway before
my dollar is spent.

When we were raising our house full of children, many times we came
to the last of our supplies the day before our money would come in. We never
went without! We learned to live with whatever was available to us. We always
lived our days to the fullest and trusted God to be there tomorrow with the goods
for that day. My sister was petrified that I would leave town and drive a hundred
miles with just one dime in my pocket. I told her, if I waited for money I would
never get to go. We lived a full life, believing God would always provide, and He

Many years ago, when our boys were pre-teens and our foster girls were
teenagers, we saw God do for us what He did for Elisha that day.

Jerry had been having lung problems and was in bed struggling to breathe.
We had been to the doctor several times that week and had spent everything we
had (we never used charge cards). I had enough money to buy two chickens for
lunch, which would give me 16 pieces of chicken. There were seven of us and
that would give everyone two pieces each, with two left over. I didnt have any
potatoes, but I had green beans and pickled okra. It wasnt much of a meal but it
was sufficient. I put barbecue on the chicken and cooked it in the oven. I didnt
know what we would have for supper, but I could worry about that later in the

After Sunday school, one of the boys in the class said, My folks are out
of town, could I go home with you today? What do you say? I said, Sure, we
would love to have you. My thoughts were, he could have the two extra pieces
of chicken. A few minutes later another boy came up and said, I heard so and
so is going to your house for lunch today. Can I come too? Again I said, Sure,
we would love to have you. My thoughts were, he could have my two pieces of
chicken and I would sacrifice. By the time church was over there were four college kids coming to our house for lunch. I didnt know what I was going to do. It
was just happening.

They all got in the car with me and I had one other girl in the car that I had
to take home. It dawned on me as I was driving, that everyone in the car was talking
about coming to our house and this girl was the only one who had not been invited.
The Holy Spirit said, Gloria, everyone else is coming, dont you think it would
only be right to invite her? My response was, Invite one more! I dont know
how I am going to feed these. But I knew God wanted me to invite this girl. About
a block from her house I got the courage to ask, hoping she would say no thank you.
Her response was, I would love to come to your house for lunch. We had a party
at my house last night and we had left over potatoe salad, tossed salad & rolls.

If you can take me to my house Ill pick

them up. I said, I can take you!!! It
was just what I needed to put with the
chicken, but there still wasnt enough
chicken. What if I hadnt listened to
the Holy Spirit and had not invited that
young lady?

Jerry was too sick to come
to the table, so I took him his portion
and the rest of us gathered at the table.
When I prayed for the food that day I
asked the Lord to make the food sufficient. Everyone ate until they were
full and when I cleared the table I had
left over chicken on the plate. We ate
the left over for supper that night and it
was sufficient. I never thought about
it that day, but I should have counted
the chicken bones. I know that the
Lord multiplied my chicken that day.
I know how Elisha felt. God has done
His work at my table also!

How often do we just panic
when we should just stand still and see
the salvation of the Lord?
P.S. I must add this! I stopped to go
into the house for something and my
cousin told me she had gotten the mail.
So, I stopped to look at the mail before
returning to the paper. In the mail was
a check from the IRS. It was a refund.
Jerry had paid when we did not owe.
We still dont know how they came to
that conclusion, but they sent back everything we had paid. We have three
major needs right now and this check
will take care of all three. We were to
leave for a meeting 200 miles away in
the morning. We didnt have the gas
but we still planned to leave. Jerry
does not have the strength to raise the
shop door (it is a large heavy door) and
we need a garage opener for him. This
check will do that. Next month we
need to make a trip to Georgia and this
will take care of our gas for the trip. I
never expected God to use the IRS to
bless us!!! Do you have a need today?
Run to God and talk your heart out.
Then listen and see what He has to say
to you. He truly delights in meeting
our needs. ----Gloria Brewster

I have just recently read through the book of Esther for maybe somewhere around the 70th time. I never cease to be amazed at how you can never see
all that the Word of God has to reveal to you. This book is alive and you can never
finish reading it!

Ive heard many things taught about Esther, but I want to think about the
way Vashti, Esther and Zerresh were used in different ways. The three men were
Ahasuerus, Mordecai and Haman. This book is an excellent book to show how
God works in the lives of man kind, yet there is no mention of God in the book.
His work is obvious, but He is not called by name.

There is a power at work in this book and it is the power of the king. All
things must be accomplished through the authority in order to do it Gods way.
God has ordained the authority structure as we read in Romans chapter thirteen.
The authority in this case is not a God fearing man. In all the work that involved
the king, we have no indication that he ever considered God in any of his commands. His authority came from his position, not his character.

It PLEASED the king to show off Vashtis beauty. Many claim he was
asking her to be immoral, but we do not have that written in scripture at all. The
story is pointing out her disobedience to the kings command. What God is showing us in the book of Esther is how to work with a king and how not to work with a
king. Remember, Jesus is King of Kings and we daily are to do our work through
His authority in our lives. Its important to know how to approach a king. Also,
your husband is the king of your home. We can learn much in this book about
how to serve our husbands.

Vashti had her own agenda for the day and did not want to leave it in order to PLEASE the king. If she had any moral objections, they are not written in
scripture. I have always wondered why the king sent seven men to get one lady!
Either that was to show how important the command was, or he thought it would
take seven men to convince her to obey!!! Vashti did not have a biblical reason
for ignoring the kings command. She just didnt want to go. Vashti was out to
PLEASE herself, not the king. Now there is anger in the kingdom and the kings
anger stirred everyone. Her actions effected the whole kingdom. The other

women were with her and saw what she

did. If she could get away with telling
the king no, then they would follow
her actions. Our actions never effect
only ourselves. We have no record that
Vashti stopped and considered whether
her actions were right or wrong. We
have no record that she consulted anyone but her own heart. She did as she
PLEASED and it did not PLEASE the
king. She lost her honor, she lost her
crown and she lost her ability to come
before the king when she had a need.
Vashti disobeyed the king and it cost
her greatly. She got her own way, but
the way was not what she thought it
would be.
Prov 14:12
There is a way which seemeth right
unto a man, but the end thereof are the
ways of death.

Vashtis action opened up the
door for Esther to have a great position
with the king. Esther benefited from
Vashtis actions, now what would Esther do with the opportunity that was
granted to her?

The king gave another commandment. He commanded that every
one bow and do honor to Haman when
he passed by. Mordecai disobeyed the
kings command also. Mordecai had a
biblical reason for not complying with
the commandment of the king. Haman
was of the family that God said for the
Jews not to honor. Also Mordecai reserved these honors for God only and
not man. He would bow to his authority but not to man. The end results of
Mordecais disobeying ended in victory and highest honor for him and his
people. Oh, it caused a great stir and
scared everyone to death for a time, but
it was a worthy stand and God honored

I heard a wonderful sermon
this week about obeying righteous
commandments and how to refuse unrighteous commandments. We must

(Continued on page 6)



Our sons are giving their lives to fight for our freedoms while our country is turning away from God, who is our deliverer and
our savior.

America turned her back on God when she took prayer out of our class rooms and eventually from our service men. God
clearly tells us what to do to get help in time of need.

2 Chron 7:14
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then
will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

After we turned from prayer, we then turned to killing our unborn children. We have killed millions of babies in America and
God will not hold us guiltless when their blood cries out to Him.
Gen 9:6
Whoso sheddeth mans blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

After giving up prayer and killing our unborn children our country then attempts to get rid of the Ten Commandments. Our
country lives by situational ethics. We no longer respect law.

Ps 119:1
Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord.

Now our supreme court has ruled that same sex marriage is legal and every state must accept the ruling. God is very clear in
His Word about how He feels about what we are doing.
Lev 18:22-25

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all
these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land
itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.

I believe this could be the straw that broke the camels back if we do not elect people who will return our country back to God.


(Continued from page 4)


in Esthers hands

consider if it is a just and righteous command, and if it is, we are to comply.

Should it be unjust or unrighteous, we are to first stand for that which is right,
then keep a right spirit and honor toward the authority that gave the command.
Next, be prepared to suffer the consequences that the authority will place upon
you. We are to suffer for righteousness sake, but we are not called to make sure
the authority suffers. Thats Gods business, seeing He has told us, Vengeance is
mine, thus saith the Lord.

We have Vashti who disobeyed and her honor was destroyed. We have
Mordecai who disobeyed and ended in honor and victory. Now let us look at Zerresh, Hamans wife, and how she responded to her authority. Haman came home
bragging to his wife and friends, about what a good man he was. His greatest
victory was being invited to the Queens banquet, but then that horrible Mordecai
was in his way of really enjoying himself. Zerresh encouraged him to do evil by
suggesting he build a gallows and hang that man. He took her advice and that
was the very thing he was hung upon in the end. I hate to see women who just
say, Whatever you say dear, and they do no thinking for themselves! We, as
women have an obligation to God, to ourselves and to those we serve, to THINK
about what we do or say. You cannot be a help meet if you do not know how to
help. To help is to point one in the right direction. We have no record of Haman
or Zerresh seeking any advice from anyone but their own selves. They did whatever PLEASED them. Their own selfish way ended just like Vashti, in death to
their dreams. Oh, we may not die physically like Haman and his family, but our
dreams die when we leave God out of the decisions of our lives.

But then we have Esther! Esther found favor with all who knew her. She
was beautiful because she acted beautiful. Those who served her, loved her. She
never stopped treating Mordecai with the respect his position required. The first
thing she did when she realized that she was in a hard place was to call for fasting
and prayer. She could not attempt the job she had been given unless God and His
grace were upon her life and she could know that she had obtained His favor by
seeking His face. She needed the work of God done in the king before she approached him! Esther realized she was only the vessel through which God would
work. She was not the power! Actually, Esther also defied the kings commandment. She approached without being called, which was against the law. There
was an exception to the law. If the king wanted to, he could approve her by raising the scepter and giving her the right to approach. She was taking a risk to her
life, but it was important enough to do so. You want to make sure that when you
push against the kings law your problem is life threatening. She said had they
just been placed in bondage she would not have approached him.

Instantly the kings heart was touched for Esther and before she could
even ask he promised her up to half of the kingdom! What a good beginning.
Esther was wise enough to know that she needed the kings heart as well as his
permission, so she gave God time to do a work in his heart that would prepare
him for her request. Haman had been humbled before she even spoke her request.
After the king gave Esther the house of Haman and the ring to write a new law,
she would need the kings heart once more before it was over. In chapter nine,
verse twenty nine, it says that Esther wrote with all authority. The kingdom was

in Esthers hands
PLEASED the king!



Haman set out to use the
kings power for his own agenda. When
you use the power to hurt and destroy
just remember that same power can be
used by others to destroy you! What
goes around comes around.

The theme of this book could be
Who do you live to PLEASE? Yourself or God! Everything seems right in
our eyes until we weigh it against Gods
way. Esther and Mordecai sought God
and they ended in victory and total
freedom to work their will through an
ungodly king. The reason everything
falls in around us is because of a lack
of respect for our authority and a lack
of seeking Gods deliverance. You will
not end up being PLEASED with your
life if you continue living to PLEASE

There is great honor to the persons who will do their work through
the person of God. Esther is still being celebrated today by the Jews. Her
work will never be forgotten.

God is looking for Esthers today. What was it Jesus said to everyone in the New Testament? Wasnt it,
Follow Me? You cant follow someone until you get behind them.

Oh to be like Esther, a little orphan girl who lived to obey God and
please others.
I want Gods way, to be my way,
As I travel here below.
For there is no another highway
That a child of God should know
Though the way be long and rough,
If He leads me tis enough.
I want Gods way, to be my way
Every day.

These days are quite a change to our lives, but as always, when God
walks with you the walk is full of His goodness. Enoch had it made. He walked
with God and was not. Wouldnt that be a nice way to go.

My health is a touchy thing. I have many good days, but every few days
my heart rate drops to dangerous levels and my blood presure will not stablize.
There is not anything that can be done for this because I have a very tired heart.
So, we do not run back and forth to the hospital, we just take a step at a time and
keep going. We are not worried by the threat of death. That has all been taken
care of by the Lord Jesus Christ. We do not sit around waiting for trouble, we
look to see what blessings we will receive today. This is the day the Lord has
made. We will be glad and rejoice in it. Tomorrow we drive 200 miles to go to
the Cowboy Camp Meeting that the Havens started 49 years ago. It will be hot so
we will only stay two days.

Words will never express our appreciation for all who have supported us
with love gifts these last 9 months. Every time there has been a need, there has
been a love gift that would cover that need. We still have a need that we are holding before the Lord and we believe He will deliver that need in time to come also.
Right now He is meeting our daily needs and that is according to His promise.

I have not been able to apply myself to work in Wonderful Word while
pastoring, but hope to dig into the work now. The printed Word is very important and there is much left to do when it comes to getting the gospel to the lost.
Our son and his wife are in Africa at this time giving the gospel to the lost. Our
granddaughter married a young preacher two weeks ago and they are excited
about serving the Lord together. All of our grandchildren are being raised to share
the gospel wherever God puts them. Our children have a love for others and are
instilling that love into their children. What a joy to see God at work in the lives
of our family. We have our problems just like everyone does, but by the grace of
God we are committed to seeking God for our solutions.

"To compel a man tosubsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas
which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."
Thomas Jefferson said in 1802:

"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks
to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the
banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the
people of all property - until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.
