We now move sagaciously forward: through my books of the 1700s. It’s easy to see how the living, wondrous, dynamically and personally-present Holy Spirit grabs one’s attention: through old and new books!
Here is one example already from today! In this extraordinary 1782 multi-volume set, I noticed the page excerpt just below. At first, I wasn’t sure if I were looking at the word “resolution” or “revolution….”
It suddenly dawned on me that S’s from the 1700s appear highly associative of our present-day F’s. Aha! So the word is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, “resolution.” But then the Holy Spirit grabbed me and whispered, “Do you know you can’t have a revolution without first having resolution?”
Of course! That makes perfect sense! Christians cannot have a strong revolution – in the congenial forms of revival, renewal, individual and societal regenerations – without first deciding on strong resolution to do so!
Thank you, Holy Spirit!
Wink Pratney once proclaimed that for every new book a Christian reads, two old ones should follow! There are many reasons for this. But here is just one more, as the Holy Spirit speaks to individuals, through new books as well as old! Not the least of which (ahem) is the Bible!
One of many reasons to be pro-active about those grand old books concerns history. Today, the lying spirit of the age foists revisionist history upon us, intending we should believe it is the Narrative. Most assuredly, it is not! The following photo is true history one will never find in Deep State-approved (UNESCO and NEA approved) text books:
for those who are listening, the Holy Spirit will easily let you know the same demonic spirits causing this in hundreds of cities and villages in 1930s Spain, are the very same demonic spirits at work in Communist-run North America today! Indeed, it is time to pray and fast their influence away!
Meanwhile, enjoy the books through the ages you may acquire! Should a solar EMP or whatever cause should inactivate the world’s digital libraries and online archives, one will treasure the original hard copies of books even more! The following are more photos from this 1782 first-edition set:
