July Spiritual Weather Bureau

by
Isaiah Reid

Cover of Isaiah Reid's 1886 'Day By Day' spiritual almanac
  • Atmospheres have much to do with health, and spiritual health and sunshine have much to do with good living. Dirt is a destroyer of pure air. Keep clean.
  • Tobacco is vile in all forms, so avoid it.
  • The average story paper and many of the novels, fester with moral poison; relegate them to the devil’s headquarters at once; if they stay in your house, so does he.
  • The usual party, ballroom, rink, parlor theatricals, and (too often) the church frolics of various kinds, are rank with malaria which is deadly in its influence on the family altar, the prayer-meeting, the Sabbath School, the church service and close communion with God in general.
  • This month the unwary and presumptuous, and those who will not be taught, are in great danger from traveling shows, circuses, Fourth of July’s, and such like, where the devil runs his harvester with great profit. “Flee these things.” Harvest weather sometimes has a bad effect on family altars.
  • Look out for the “sleepy devil” at the church these long hot days.

June Spiritual Weather Bureau

by
Isaiah Reid

Cover of Isaiah Reid's 1886 'Day By Day' spiritual almanac
  • The soul gets sick and has numerous diseases. Each disease has its symptoms and takes on its special external manifestation of spiritual weather.
  • Fear betokens an unsettled account.
  • Hankering after the fashions denotes a heart with a big corner in it reserved for the world.
  • Love of fancy dress means pride and lack of internal, soul dress, which in the sight of heaven is of great price.
  • Unholy anger waves a signal flag of the temporary victory of indwelling sin.
  • A gossiping tongue betokens a heart where Christ is not welcome.
  • A smiling cheery face for a church sociable and a graveyard visage for the prayer-meeting, a soul not in communion with God.
  • “Sinning every day in thought, word and deed” proves up the claim of an unsanctified nature.
  • Pray out of the shadow into sunlight.

May Spiritual Weather Bureau

Isaiah Reid

Cover of Isaiah Reid's 1886 'Day By Day' spiritual almanac

Note these signs of unpleasant weather:

  • No time for family worship
  • Too tired to go to prayer meeting
  • Plenty of time for the daily papers or a story and but little for the Bible
  • Plenty of talk about almost everything but religion
  • A disposition to find fault
  • Defending yourself
  • Lack of interest and effort in definite soul saving, but ever zealous in “church” work, such as any unsaved person might do
  • Complaining of “so many calls”
  • No interest in holiness literature
  • Inability to do much in revival meetings
  • No religion “to speak of.”

April Forecasts of the Spiritual Weather

by
Isaiah Reid

Cover of Isaiah Reid's 1886 'Day By Day' spiritual almanac
  • The growing season is on us. Remember that “showers of grace” are in constant demand. These with the sunshine of His love and the needful plowing, harrowing and weeding culture of grace in the soul will make it bloom like Eden.
  • Growth begins nothing. We grow in not into grace. Growth is increase of that which we already have. Beware of those who put growth in place of God’s creation. 2 Cor. 2:17.
  • Look out for frosts that will kill tender plants. They are most to be looked for on mornings when the place of secret prayer, the Bible and the family altar have been neglected, or on a Monday morning after a badly spent Sabbath. Storms of anger are to be expected in all atmospheres surcharged with the “carnal mind.”

March Spiritual Weather Bureau

by
Isaiah Reid

Cover of Isaiah Reid's 1886 'Day By Day' spiritual almanac
  • To the soul in Canaan there need be no March weather. March and May should have the same unclouded sunshine. But Satan will come with frequent external storms of trial. Look out for his special Equinoctials.1
  • Go to the Great Physician for a certain cure for General Debility.
  • The sin consumption is hereditary and incurable save at the fountain mentioned in Zech. 13:1.
  • Drink the pure water of life each day.
  • Begin daily drills for exercise at the place of secret prayer and renew it again at the breakfast table and take a good season of practice at the family altar.
  • To avoid qualms of conscience keep under the blood.
  • Keep an eye on Danger Signals. See I Peter 5:8.

[Taken from Day by Day, The Highway Almanac and Diary for 1886,

  1. Equinoctials was the name given to violent storms of wind and rain occurring at or near the time of the spring equinox.

February Spiritual Weather Bureau

by
Isaiah Reid

Cover of Isaiah Reid's 1886 'Day By Day' spiritual almanac
  • Spiritual weather depends on spiritual health.
  • Look out for cold waves this month, but they will not hurt a heart on fire from above.
  • If you will not plough by reason of the cold, you will beg in harvest and have nothing. Prov. 20:4
  • If you start to church cold, you will probably get there in the same state; a warm fireside is essential to warm churches.
  • Three essentials to good health are healthy food, pure air and exercise. The Canaan of Perfect Love is the only climate in which these are all secured in fullness. It may be you need to emigrate. Egypt and the Wilderness are not thus blessed.

Forecasts of the Spiritual Weather: January

by
Isaiah Reid

Cover of Isaiah Reid's 1886 'Day By Day' spiritual almanac
  • If you want continual sunshine live in Isaiah 60:20.
  • To avoid sudden changes, “Abide under the shadow of the Almighty.” Psalm 91:1
  • Look out for chills and colds in the region of rinks, church suppers, festivals and frolics about this time of year.
  • Prevent rheumatism of the tongue by obeying Revelation 12:11 and Malachi 3:16.
  • Tone up each day by a good salvation breakfast. “Eat that which is good and thy soul shall live.”1

  • Children have all inherited a dangerous disease variously called “Depravity,” “Carnal Nature,” and “original sin,” and are liable to certain bad “spells;” consult Mark 9 for the only effective remedy.

[Taken from Day by Day, The Highway Almanac and Diary for 1886,
the “almanac” (and Bible-reading plan)
published by Reid’s The Highway Office, Nevada, Iowa]

  1. This quotation seems to be a concatenation of two phrases in Isaiah 55:2-3—

    2Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread?
    and your labour for that which satisfieth not?
    hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good,
    and let your soul delight itself in fatness.
    3Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear,
    and your soul shall live;
    and I will make an everlasting covenant with you,
    even the sure mercies of David.

Central-IA-3-1

After prayerful consideration, and thoughtful discussion and deliberation, the IHA Board has with great sadness, decided to cancel IHA Camp 2020. We worked hard to weigh the priorities of the health and safety of our workers and campers alongside the value of fulfilling our purpose of providing a life-changing experience for campers through the proclamation of holiness. We determined that we could not accomplish both goals while providing a quality experience that would remotely resemble IHA Camp Meeting. The board determined the camp functions such as: the nightly tabernacle services, the fellowship following, the altar calls, daily tabernacle services, youth and children services, youth accommodations, mealtime and food service, and our prayer meetings each morning would be impossible to engage in while also implementing necessary safety precautions. This is one of the most difficult decisions the board has ever made. We realize how impactful Iowa Holiness Association Camp Meeting is for families, including our own.

We strongly encourage your participation in the Interchurch Holiness Convention, at the IHA Tabernacle, August 19-21. Visit www.IHConvention.com for more information.

We pray you may experience God in a meaningful way this summer as you continue to walk with Him.

We look forward to IHA Camp 2021!

President Brady Hunter and IHA board
