the new covenant community is made up of only the regenerate

It is in the flow of being alive 9:51 AM Wednesday morning. Outside this morning it is cold and cloudy. Tomorrow it is suppose to rain snow.

I got up this morning around 7:15 AM this morning. I got up made a pot of coffee and a small pot of oatmeal for breakfast. I do not remember what I ate for breakfast when I was 15 years old. Did I eat breakfast when I was a boy? I do not remember my boyhood. I basically remember my life from 1968 till this moment. But my memory is quickly disappearing. Also I know we are constantly reinterpreting our past. I know right now I am interpreting this moment. I really do not have exhaustive knowledge of this moment. I live my life in a state of unknowing. I live by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I live inside of God.

I ate my oatmeal messing with our main computer. After messing with our main computer I wrote in my paper diary and have been reading this morning a book titled, "Progressive Covenantalism: Charting a Course Between Dispensational and Covenantal Theologies" Editors: Stephen J. Wellum & Brent E. Parker. My wife got home from work around 8:45 AM and has gone to bed for the day. Existence keeps speeding by faster and faster. I am coming to my End.

Last night I made another video for my YouTube channel, listened to music, and read late into the night the novel, "Gloria" by Keith Maillard. Now it is another day to prepare for what comes next.

I am not sure what I will do next. I might go visit thrift stores this morning while the weather holds out. We could be snowed in tomorrow.

Well I suppose I will close for now.

"[25] For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
[26] And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
[27] For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.
[28] As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.
[29] For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.
[30] For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:
[31] Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.
[32] For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.
[33] O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!
[34] For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counseller?
[35] Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?
[36] For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen." Romans 11:25-36

It is now in the flow 4:53 PM Wednesday late afternoon. This day has gone by normal thus far.

I left for the library used books store around 2:59 PM. The book nook was quiet today. I read while at the book nook the book, "Iris Murdoch: A Life" biography by Peter J. Conradi. I brought home from the book nook these used books-

"Life Among Giants" a novel by Bill Roorbach

"Alice I Have Been" a novel by Melanie Benjamin

"If Not Now, When?" a novel by Primo Levi

"England, England" a novel by Julian Barnes

I got home from the book nook around 3:15 PM. I ate food and cataloged my new used books into my LibraryThing site. I next wrote in my paper diary and have been once again reading the novel, "The Good Apprentice" by Iris Murdoch this afternoon. I want to finish reading this novel so I can go on to something else. There are so many novels I want to read!

In the mail I received a new book I had ordered titled, "Spain In Our Hearts: Americans In The Spanish Civil War, 1936-1939" by Adam Hochschild. I have two other books by Hochschild in our library.

There is not much else to report so I will close.
