  1. What Good has God Done • Zechariah 5:5. Then the angel who talked with me came out and said to me, "Lift your eyes now, and see what this is that goes forth.'' 6. So I asked, "What is it?'' And he said, "It is a basket that is going forth.'' He also said, "This is their resemblance throughout the earth: 7. "Here is a lead disc lifted up, and this is a woman sitting inside the basket''; 8. then he said, "This is Wickedness!'' And he thrust her down into the basket, and threw the lead cover over its mouth. 9. Then I raised my eyes and looked, and there were two women, coming with the wind in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork, and they lifted up the basket between earth and heaven. 10. So I said to the angel who talked with me, "Where are they carrying the basket?'' 11. And he said to me, "To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; when it is ready, the basket will be set there on its base.'' • Psalms 4:1. Hear me when I call, O God of my righteousness! You have relieved me when I was in distress; Have mercy on me, and hear my prayer. 2. How long, O you sons of men, Will you turn my glory to shame? How long will you love worthlessness And seek falsehood? Selah • This is a 7 Gallon basket with a lead plate on top of it. The lid covers the whole thing. • This is their resemblance...

  2. Psalms 4:6 There are many who say, "Who will show us any good?'' • Anarchist involved in the communist movement in England • She left part of the movement because they were violent and wanted to use dynamite to push their point • For one right granted, crowds must suffer wrong; • What? bomb-throwing--killing--violence, useful? What sort of Anarchists are those who say that? Where is their Anarchism, their belief in freedom, and the right of every living man to his own life and liberty? Anarchism is not bomb throwing, violence, incendiarism, destruction. Odd that anything so self evident should need saying. • She had a broken marriage • She had pain, sorrow, worry and fret • Who will show you any good? By Louisa Sarah Bevington • ... • But man! For every little hour of rest • He must be many, many times distressed; • For one right granted, crowds must suffer wrong; • A thousand sorrows go to make one song; • And every nerve-gate that lets in our bliss • Lets in tenfold the pain. Whose fiat this? • Is there a promised good in present grief? • ...

  5. 5. Offer the sacrifices of righteousness, And put your trust in the Lord. 6. There are many who say, "Who will show us any good?''

Arise, O Lord, Do not let man prevail; Let the nations be judged in Your sight. 20. Put them in fear, O Lord, That the nations may know themselves to be but men. Selah • Will you trust God this morning? • Will you rejoice in the strength of Christ? • God desires good for your life. • Jeremiah 29:11. For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. 12.
