Reading: Big John's Secret


We are reading BIG JOHN'S SECRET by Eleanore M. Jewett as a historical fiction read aloud. I LOVE historical fiction.  
This has been an excellent year of fruit, regrouping in our home school.  We have been able to re-implement a solid read aloud each day that was sorely lacking , not gone completely, the last two years. It has been good for my heart to pour my life into these last two kiddos I have at home.  We cherish these memories of reading aloud with all my kids since they were born. So many memories of our boy B, rubbing his hands together in excitement over a climactic event in a great book! 
We are studying the Middle Ages, currently. We have really enjoyed this book from the start. It's witty, full of rich historical language and made us laugh from the beginning!

LUCIFER WANTS YOU DRY

Why does Satan want you to stay away from the the watery grave of baptism?

1. Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

Lucifer wants you dry so you cannot be saved.

2. Acts 8:39 When they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord snatched Philip away; and the eunuch no longer saw him, but went on his way rejoicing.

Beelzebub wants you dry to prevent you from rejoicing.

3. Acts 22:16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.

The Devil wants you dry so your sins will not be washed away.

4. Galatians 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

The prince of darkness wants you dry so you will not be clothed with Christ.

5. Acts 2:41,47 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. 47 ...And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Satan wants you dry because he does not want you saved and subsequently added to the Lord's church.

6. Romans 6:4 Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life.


The prince of devils wants you dry to keep you from walking in a new life with Christ.

7. Romans 6:6 knowing this, that our old self was crucified with Him, in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin;

Lucifer wants you dry so you will remain a slave to sin.

8. Romans 6:11 Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.

Beelzebub wants you dry so you cannot be alive to God in Christ Jesus.

9. 1 Peter 3:21 Corresponding to that, baptism now saves you---not the removal of dirt from the flesh , but an appeal to God for a good conscience---through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

The prince of the devils wants you dry because he does not want you to be saved.

10. Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Lucifer wants you dry because he does not want you to have your sins forgiven nor does he want you to receive indwelling gift of the Holy Spirit.

11. Colossians 2:12-13 ..buried with Him in baptism...13 When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions.

Beelzebub wants you dry because he does not want your transgressions forgiven.

12. Titus 3:5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have dine in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by thewashing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit,

The Devil want you dry so will remain unsaved.

13. John 3:5 Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

The prince of darkness wants you dry in order to keep you from entering the kingdom of God.

14. Ephesians 5:25-27 ...Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her, 26 so that He might sanctify her , having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, 27 that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory , having no spot or wrinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy and blameless.

Satan wants you dry because he does not want you sanctified, cleansed, nor holy and blameless.

15. Revelation 20:15 And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.

Lucifer wants you dry because he does not want your name written in the Lamb's book of life.He want you to be thrown into the lake of fire.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
