A blessing from Harry Ironside

I have heard of Dr. Harry Ironside from when I was in Bible College.  I have a healthy respect for his Bible Commentaries.  I listened to a series of messages on Isaiah from an actual live recording of his Bible class on  What a blessing.  He was an even better speaker than what I had imagined.  I wanted to share a blessing that I got from his observation and experience.

He was traveling via train (I guess he really liked that) when a gypsy fortune teller woman grabbed his palm and was intending to tell him about his past, present, and future.  He took his New Testament and showed her about his past, present, and future.  He is just a good man.

My Past:
Ephesians 2:1-3  And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;  (2)  Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  (3)  Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

My Present:
Ephesians 2:4-6  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,  (5)  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)  (6)  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:

My Future:
Ephesians 2:7  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
