Saving The Reformation – Magdeburg 1550 AD

I love History – especially stories that lie at the root of liberty.

October 31st, 2017 marks the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.

I recently read an article (quoted below) and watched a video (above) about the people of Magdeburg and how they stood up against a tyrant and preserved Christian Liberty by preserving the Reformation.

I hope you find the video and/or the article linked below to be an encouragement and a blessing and a stirrer of hope!

If you are not familiar with the concept described as “The Doctrine of the Lesser Magistrate” then perhaps this will serve as your introduction. 🙂

According to Pastor Matt Trewhella of Mercy Seat Christian Church:

If not for the interposition of the magistrates of Magdeburg, the Reformation may well have been just a blip on the radar screen of human history.

The [Magdeburg] Confession impacted other of the Reformers, including John Knox, Theodore Beza, Philipp Mornay, and Christopher Goodman who all wrote further on the doctrine. The repercussions of the Magdeburg Confession were felt throughout Western Civilization all the way to the founding of America as a nation.

This reminds me of when the people of Israel discovered the Book of the Law after their exile as told in the book of Nehemiah. (Nehemiah 8:1-12)

They started with weeping:

“…all the people wept as they heard the words of the Law…”

And ended with rejoicing:

“And all the people went their way to eat and drink and to send portions and to make great rejoicing, because they had understood the words that were declared to them…”

Lord, let me be this hungry for Your Word!

As you contemplate Thanksgiving Season, consider being Thankful for the Bible, God’s Word Revealed To Us! He didn’t leave us in darkness, but gave us light.

Should Christians Cry “It’s the End of the World” and Run to the Hills?

Glen Beck Interviews Kirk Cameron and Marshall Foster:

I associate Kirk Cameron with the Left Behind series of movies, so I am really excited to hear him talking about how we should not surrender because it looks like the end of the world, but we should fight for the future.

I hope your are inspired.
