Welcome to "Quaint Words!”

These posts will contain thoughts, poems, and prayers from old books that I have found at antique stores, flea markets, and garage sales (with an occasional treasure from a bookstore).

I love the rhythm and sound of the older English language, and am blessed by other believers who have gone before me!

"For, be assured, all the evil which the Spirit reveals, has been put away by the cross of Christ, out of God's sight for ever. And that which He has put away can never be brought up against you. When this blessed truth is seen, instead of being cast down, and questioning your forgiveness and salvation, you will, every day, be learning more and more of the fulness, perfectness, and blessedness of Jesus and His finished work...You will be taught, not to think less of sin, but more of Christ...

Does He not testify, by His presence in the believer's soul, that He who was on the cross, is now on the throne for us, and that He left all our sins behind Him in the grave? Blessed truth!

...The great thing is to get the eye off self...and to be wholly occupied with a risen, ascended, and glorified Christ at God's right hand."

(From "Things New and Old" by Anonymous, c. 1859)

"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)
