Promised Land

Promised Land
By: Yvonne Green
I read a long time ago in one of the books that most writers write about something that they need to hear or read themselves.
Most everyone is familiar with the story of the Israelites and their Promised Land.
A land of milk and honey.
Have you ever thought of your Promised Land?
Let's set the stage about another person's Promised Land:
-King James acseeds to the throne in 1603 after Queen Elizabeth dies.
-Here is a typical conversation:
-(Notice how the language was different verses the present).
"It pleased him both to enter into a gratulation to Almightie God (at which wordes he put off his hat) for bringing him into the promised land, where Religion was purely professed; where he sate among graue, learned and reuerend men; ect.." p.49 see GOD'S SECRETARIES
"He sate among graue, learned and reuerend men." p.42 see GOD'S SECRETARIES
"For the word of God is quicke and powerfull, and sharper than any two edged sword, pearcing euen to the dividing asunder of soule and spirit, and of the ioynts and marrowe, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart." Hebrews 4:12 p. 84 see GOD'S SECRETARIES
Hebrews 4:12 NIV today
"For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart."
Hebrews 4:12 NIV translation
It has really made me stop and think. Just how thankful that King James was that Religion was professed.
