Isa 6.1 +

Isa 6.1

“In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne

high & lifted up & his train filled the temple.”

“Older man declare war.

But it is the youth that must fight & die.

– Herbert Hoover, 1944

When they file past your casket preacher (pastor or evangelist) or attend a memorial service, would you wish folks to say, “There was a man who faithfully proclaimed Holiness & he lived it.” Or “He had such a pleasing personality” or “Our church attendance doubled under him” or other lesser words. The leading sentence is the best. – 1/26/22

“I can’t make you love me,

but you can’t keep me from loving you.”

– Jack Hyles

You were raised by parents who didn’t wear “x” nor would they allow you to wear “x.” They didn’t go to “y” & wouldn’t let you go to “y” (no matter how much you plead). They didn’t play “z” nor would they let you play “z.” God Bless the memory of “Popsy & Momsy.” You got on your own & did ALL the X Y Z you wanted to. Who was right? You or your parents? Which actions line up with the Bible? Which “deeds” do you imagine Jesus doing? Be honest. For the sake of your SOUL, be honest. – 1/27/22

DEAD?

When you & I are stretched out stiff & cold,

And the soul has left its God-shaped mold,

And questions spread among friend & foe

How long was he sick? How did he go?

When was he born? Was he *that* old?

We’ll not hear this twitter, not one word.

If we’ve lived for Him (That was His choice.

He invited us to, if we but heard His voice.)

We’ll have heard the greatest words e’er said,

“Well done.”

Oh, I want to hear THEM, when you think I’m dead.

– eab,  1/28/17

Do not go into debt. “But I have to – thus & thus is happening & I don’t have cash.” Are you fully minding God? If you’re His child – from your topmost hair to the soles of your feet – He’ll supply your need: if it’s His time for you to die (& you’re completely His) He’ll give dying grace. If its not time for you to go, God can feed you with the ravens like He did Elijah. Debt is a type of slavery. You, in a sense, belong (until paid) to the loaner. Trust God. With. All. Your. Needs. – 1/28/22

Luk 10.2

“The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest

that he would send forth laborers into his harvest.”

“Revivals are born after midnight

– Glenn Griffith

I can’t encourage you too much to pray for the world. 1.) Adopt a whole continent – try to pray for it once or more a week. 2.) Adopt a country & ask God to send forth laborers from it – or to it – & do this once a week (or more). Take the “job” of praying for northern ½ of a land, or the western ⅓ or the southern ¼ of a different place. Learn the geography of said locale, pray for men to preach across your section & for women (young or old) to bear a prayer burden there. – 1/28/22

“We are destined eternally to spend eternity

where our treasures are”

– Daryl D Hausman

Isa 5.20 +

Isa 5.20

“Woe unto them that call evil good & good evil; that put darkness for light,

& light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet & sweet for bitter!”

“Following Christ is a hard task.

It is a warfare.

– Wilfred Grenfell, MD (Brit. Missionary to Canada)

Home schooling is VERY important. It is more important than you, Mom, keeping a perfectly clean house. BTW teaching your child how to dust, sweep, mop & otherwise clean can be a PART of their schooling. Your shop, Dad, may be messing – home schooling is more important then perfect order but again teaching youngsters to use a tool & PUT IT BACK is a rightful part of schooling. Cleaning up after themselves also fits; whether in the kitchen, garage, barn or basement. – 1/24/22

“The Shunammite woman didn’t say ‘I perceive that this is a famous man of God

or popular or brilliant or successful man of God.’  She said a ‘holy’ man of God.”

– Vance Havner

Mentioning home schooling – what better place for children to learn about liquid measures & dry than in the kitchen helping Mom fix breakfast, lunch or even supper. Teaspoons? Yes. Tablespoons? Yes. Ounces? Yes. Cups? Yes. And once the meal is about to be served don’t just plop a knife, fork & spoon in the table, teach the child the right place for each & the napkin as well. Once a month serve a more formal meal (with their help) & teach them where to place a 2nd fork, a 2nd spoon. Schooling! – 1/24/22

mutual Savior

The most recent residents walking heaven’s golden street

Aren’t rejoicing that their opinions were “exactly” right;

Nor gathered in theological clusters to peers greet

Who shared their earthly degree of religious “light.”

Much of life’s views are, with little doubt, all forgotten

As they adorn their mutual Savior, God’s only Begotten.

– eab,  1/26/17

God tells your hair to grow. You, willful woman, cut it, in effective telling God “No.” He allows it to grow more & you cut it off more. This continues until you die (unless you surrender to God first) & you’re ushered into His presence. How do you think you’ll feel – meeting the One to Whom you said “No” every time you cut it yourself or went to hair dresser. Will God be happy with? Will you be able to lift your eyes to the One to whom you repeatedly rebelled? I think not. NOW, sister is the time to stop. – 1/26/22

1Co 11.15

“But if a woman have long hair, it is a glory to her:

for her hair is given her for a covering.”

“[Hair] the most defined standard

in the Bible.”

– Ken Thompson

It’s simpler for the unsanctified pastor to schedule a “revival” which he can control, than it is for him to pray, gather others around him who’ll earnestly pray, & then all submit to the Holy Ghost that He come in a mighty awakening. “After all, the church calendar: birthday events, anniversary celebrations, ball games, (dare I continue & say “easter egg hunt?) must go on.” No. They do not. O, for an awakening across America. We need You, Lord. – 1/26/22  

“They [some Corinthian Christians] were carnal

not sanctified but they spake in tongues.”

– A L Vess

Isa 1.18 +

Isa 1.18

“Come now & let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet,

they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool”

…say no more than you know

 the God above will say ‘Amen’ to…”

– John Bunyan

It’s been yrs (decades for some) since I’ve seen your face. Without being unkind I dare say you’re not the epitome of beauty/handsomeness. I hasten to add – nor an extreme of ugliness. Some of us are un-happy with an arch to the eyebrow, curve to the mouth, a nose shape, ect. Friend, a reminder, you (& I) will soon leave physical features on this earth. Let us strive to be lovely INSIDE. After all, that’s what God sees right now. His assessment is the true value of our looks. Blessings.  – 1/24/22

“There is no dignity quite so impressive & no independency quite so impressive

as living within your means.”

– Calvin Coolidge

God does not NEED any movie, pic, statue, painting. Few (if any) of these truly help His cause. – 1/24/22

H. ROBB FRENCH [1]     

Today the old soldier goes to rest

Slipped gently in earth’s pocketed vest

And the world in useless business of years

Will not notice nor care for the saint’s soft tears

H. Robb French is dead.

He pastored and plead with his church

Preached mightily from many a camp “perch”

He prayed and believed, believed and prayed

Until God came, until God stayed

But today Robb French is dead

A camp in southern peripheral land

Swamp and pine and palmetto and sand

And from that camp a school did grow

Zooks and Frenches the “seed” did sow

Now the giant French is dead

In pick-up truck, he and his wife

Geraldine, she was, other half of his life

Traveled the circuit, delivering the Word

Revival and Rapture–that’s what you heard

Before the revivalist French was dead.

– eab,  January ’85  

Heads UP. God bless everyone who’s home schooling but watch what books you have the child read. This, of course, includes the main books/booklets for basic subjects. But also includes books you provide for extra-curricular reading as well. Your basic texts may be Bible-centered but if the other books you allow (from a library or otherwise) are full of sinful people, war, sex-driven ideas you are not home schooling as you Could, nor as you Should. Be alert. satan is working to ruin your child. – 1/24/22

Jas 4.17

“Therefore to him that knoweth to do good,

& doeth it not, to him it is sin.”

“Never do anything I would not want

to be doing the last hour of my life.”

– Jonathan Edwards

The Lord built into you a Moral Compass. Instead of always pointing north, It always points to God.  If you expect to make it out of the Big Woods alive, believe a regular compass. Your only hope of going to heaven is to believe God & His Moral Compass. Do not mess with it. Do not dabble in cults (partly “christian” or not). Do not believe the average preacher in what used-to-be a holiness church. Do not read a false bible. Walk (if need be crawl!) toward God. Keep moving His direction. Keep saying “Yes.” – 1/24/22  

“There never was a good war

or a bad peace.”

– Ben Franklin


[1] Brother French 12/26/1891-1/24/1985 was the most Godly man I’ve known. Privileged to have been in a few Saturday prayer meetings at cottage & sought his advice. Many men have my respect but he stands above all.

Ecc 12.13 +

Ecc 12.13

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God &

keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”

“The value of holiness. Its presence is life

You do not need lint on your coat.

You do not need LENT on your calendar.

“Am I holy…when I trade when I mingle in debate & strife

 when I am chided & maligned when I am off my guard…?

– R S Foster

Harken. Your life can be harmonious with God. When it is, you’ll be in harmony with God’s people. When you are in harmony with God & His people – are you ready for this? – you will be OUT of harmony with those souls & systems who are out of harmony with God. Learn, please learn this now – you can love sinners but you can’t truly fellowship with them. Light is Light. Darkness is darkness. – 1/22/22

WAY  TRUTH  LIFE             

Jesus is the Way

This applies to our everyday

Up hill and down

Mid smiles, the occasional frown

Always take His Way.

Jesus is the Truth

Applies to you and Moabitish Ruth

Across millennia and tired miles

In spite of lying “bits” and files

Let Him be your Truth.

Jesus is Life

Applies beyond present struggles and strife

Be brave

There IS life beyond the grave

True for Adam, true for you

Live His Life.

– eab, January 2015

There is a False Ecumenical Movement. It is all around us & if we aren’t careful will drag us into its smashing/crashing wheels. All cults will unite under the coming “antichrist”(1Jo 2.18ff). Join nothing which has connections to “fake christianity.” God has a True unity – souls from many groups who have been covered by the Blood of the Lamb. These two (the false & the true) will “spend” eternity in two opposite places: the false in damnation, the True in Glory. Watch, Pray, ask God for wisdom. – 1/22/22

“If the Scriptures are not reliable in details

how shall we reach general conclusions.”

– Eldon Fuhrman, PhD

Rev 16.13

“…I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon

& out of the mouth of the beast & out of the mouth of the false prophet.”

Please, Bro. please Sis. we are not mere traditionalists. We are not ritualists. We serve the God of PERFECT ORIGINALITY. The Almighty is so Original He did not need to make any two of us alike. If He did not need to create two humans the same (not even what we call “identical twins”) He does not need to be worshiped in a puny man-made 1) 2) 3) pattern. Never. If your god requires ritual of you, your god is too small. Come to the True God. Leave ritual behind – it tends toward carnality. – 1/23/22

– Andrew W Blackwood

Allow me to invite you to pray for the world. (You & I are just 1 [each] but we ARE 1 & can pray for huge things as He leads.) He said “…Pray ye…the Lord of the harvest that he would send forth laborers into his harvest”(Luk 10.2). Select a continent (one you’ve visited or one you wanted to) & pray once a week (every Tues, for example) for it. Pray for men to answer God’s call to minister (pastor, evangelist, street-preacher) & for ladies to pray. Ask God to show you HOW to pray for that land. He can. – 1/22/22

“…The average preacher seems to know more about sin

than about holiness.”

– Andrew W Blackwood

When a man gets Saved, Redeemed, Born anew, he doesn’t then want less of God – he wants more. As he walks on toward heaven he realizes he can have more of God by letting the Lord take out all traits of carnality & letting the Almighty give him a Pure Heart. Now does he love God less? Of course not. He walks on with God till he dies & goes where he “shall…ever be with the Lord”(1Th 4.17).  – 1/22/22

NO MATTER

It matters not the color of your skin

Nor the language that you speak.

You’re an earthling, therefore,

One whom Christ came to seek.

– eab  1/18/13

Read a Gospel a month? The repeat? Why not? They are each different – they all pictures of our Lord & are therefore interesting. Rarely, you find exact wording, often you find similar ideas expressed. They record the Wonderful Words Christ taught. They record His healing as He touched lives. Sadly they draw our attention to the Mis-trial, the torture, the actual killing of the Savior. Gladly they also tell of His resurrection, Humanness afterward & He ascension. Read the Lives of Christ. – 1/22/22

Exo 30.6

“…The people [backslidden Israel] sat down to eat

Do you find the song delightful because you: 1.) Love its syncopation? 2.) Love the playful way notes “skip” up & down the scale? 3.) Love the unique rhyming? 4.) Love the choice of picturesque words? 5.) Love the memories that float from the past as you sing it? 6.) Love the truth you review/re-live as it’s sung? 7.) Love the Father or Son or Spirit (or all Three) honored by it? Probably it’s not wrong to like a song for any of these – – – Please Love songs the most, which honor God the most. Amen? – 1/22/22

– John Fletcher

In the last months before I was saved a popular song was “O, Yes, I’m the Great Pretender…” As I see what some call “camp meeting” I’m afraid I see other “pretenders.” Are singers (with the evidence of the world on them) trying to sing, substituting “rhythm” & catchy words for solid hymns? Are their clapped hands attempting to replace the saint’s shouts? Are compromising preachers trying to make their fellow compromisers comfortable? Pretended worship is such a poor substitute & will end in hell.

What is faith?

It is believing heartily.”

– John Fletcher

Some poor souls – to the disappointment of those around – have “developed finding fault” to an *art (art it is NOT). Please old sir, please elderly ma’am almost anyone can see a problem if That is what they seek. Most anyone can find a flaw if That is what delights them. Ask God to help you compliment the cook. Ask God to show you how to say nice words to those helping you. Few enjoy being around a complainer. It sort-a-fun to be with a Complimenter. – 1/8/22

DEATH  COMES

When you’re young and tender

And things are going good,

You seldom think of death,

As often as you should.

Then life gets busier;

Death comes, but it is rare.

You give it a slight nod,

Acknowledging it’s there.

Children gladden the home;

Soon their kids too arrive.

Slowly it dawns; you see

Friends are gone – not alive.

Then the rate increases

More go through death’s cold door;

Former playmates, classmates

Falter, fail – are no more.

No one lives forever

(Methuselah too died).

Death – started in Eden,

“Has” to be satisfied.

Prepare for its coming

By the Blood of our Lord.

Christ died to save your soul

Receive, believe His Word.

– eab,  1/21/16 

Please get right with God. This has immeasurable importance beyond death. Does it have importance before death? Immense!!! Please read (then re-read) Heb 2.15 “And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.” When you’re not right with God, you’re (unless stupid) afraid to die. Therefore a force (“legal” or illegal) which threatens murder can control you. When you’re right with God the threat of death is useless. You’re not “subject to bondage” anymore. Praise the Lord! – 1/19/22

“…No man can gladly receive the truths of God

who gladly receives the lies of satan.”

– John Fletcher

Tit 1.2

“In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie

promised before the world began;”

God never lies. Sadly there were some “good” (word used rather loosely) men in the OT who lied or at least used deception. Praise the Lord such shenanigans (if God winked at them then or sins, as we see them) are missing in the NT. There are several differences between the Testaments – Truth telling is one of them. Not only does God not lie – He doesn’t want you or me to lie either & as His followers we don’t. – 1/21/22

“…Predestination…represents God

 as the author of sin.”

Ecc 8.10 +

Great possessions are generally accompanied with pride,

idleness & luxury & these are the greatest enemies to salvation.”

Suicide is a terrible subject; I don’t enjoy talking about it. I write, hear this, I write to hopefully PREVENT it. If a poor soul was beyond being mentally responsible God knows & will handle such. But satan is slick; he may try to convince you that “you’re not responsible enough” so go ahead. Please – whether you agree with eab or hate me for speaking this – I’m trying to point out suicide is SIN. Do not do this; once dead you can’t repent. If God allowed so-n-so into heaven that’s up to Him. Don’t think He smiles on suicide or is taking a lesser view because corrupt society is accepting it. Never. – 1/16/22

“Christ loves little children because he loves simplicity & innocence;

He has sanctified their very age by passing through it himself.”

– Adam Clarke

Have you learned to be content? “…I have learned…to be content”(Php 4.11). Are you learnING? Do you want to be content? [These don’t relate to your walk with God but to “needing things.”] satan wants you to desire Things, more Toys, more Money. Friend (or if you’re southern, “Honey ch’l”) Things, Toys, $ can’t make you content. “Learn” is Paul’s word. Ask God to help you. Start (the trail may have a little climb to it) but start toward contentment. I think you may Like It. – 1/19/22

Adoring the One to Whom I belong

Now and through eternity, endlessly long.

You may wonder at eab posts. If you’re helped in the least Give God all the Praise. If you get mad, you can blame me (I may have missed it somewhere, some yr) BUT – read this carefully – your anger at me might be a sign you needed to read those words; & profit from them. BTW I’d like for us to be friends but I’m not on social media to make friends – I want you to go to heaven. In the mean time, I’d like for you to be wise. To stop believing satan (& his cohorts) & to start reading/obeying the Good Book. – 1/19/22

Luk 16.23

“And in hell he lift up his eyes,

– Paul Finch, Sr.

If you grew up in church where the Holy Ghost moved at times (I hope you did-that’s a great heritage), are not *now obeying Biblical teachings on “x y z” but loved the freedom of the Spirit, allow me to sound a warning. You’re in danger. You’re in danger of accepting a substitute spirit (no capital letter) which has unholy roots. satan is fooling many with music (swaying & clapping or hands in the air) or with “good works” they support. STOP. Please come back to right living; back to the HOLY WAY. – 1/20/22

Did you actually buy a big-screen TV? Did you pay “x” Fed-notes for a device which pumps hollywood into your living room, den or master bedroom? Then – did you also sign up for & now pay another “x” amount so you can have cable? Have you added up these amounts? But the greatest cost, Friend is not dollars; the greatest cost is the indoctrination coming into your minds & the tender minds of your innocent little son, innocent girl. I urge you Get. That.

Please read Revelation. Read it on your knees (literally) or with a *kneeling-in-your-heart* attitude. It’s been erroneously called “John’s Revelation” or “the Revelation of John” – both are incorrect. Thank God for John (same as the apostle) & what he suffered on Patmos Isle but he’s just a penman. The fourth & fifth words show the Book’s exact ownership; it’s “The Revelation of Jesus Christ…” (Rev 1.1). Read It & fear God. Revelation WILL be fulfilled. Read it & get ready to welcome Jesus as KING. – 1/17/22

The Father, the Spirit, the Son

Sounds like three, yet are One.

O Men, love the Trinity, Love the One

Love God as Father, Spirit, and Son!

– eab,  1/18/16  

What you at times call God’s House maybe a spot He once visited nearly every week. Maybe a building in which God was once *more than welcome – if He didn’t come people felt like they’d not been “to church.” But that place picked up a preacher (or other human) & he saw himself as important or began to allow “man to be center” instead of God. Jesus doesn’t come where He’s not *fully welcome. Sadly He slipped out the door. More sadly, many may not have noticed He was gone. – 1/18/22

The great Father above allowed Martha & me to purchase (cash) a bungalow in ‘13. It is small but was somewhat uniquely divided. The room from which I type (“my office”) is less than 11’ long & not 8’ wide. That’s the down side. The up side is there’s a nice-sized window to my left (facing due east) & another same-size window out which I look due south. God is so good – He knew when they built this little house (1956) that I love to see outside. God arranged our place for us. Thank You, Lord. – 1/18/22

GAMES  Dad/Mom – with several weeks of “winter” ahead let me ask you to pray about the games you allow your children to play. Dice doesn’t belong in a decent home, let alone a home professing Christ.

Keep the romance alive; I’ve never had to take the credentials

from a man who stayed in love with his wife.”

– Elbert Dodd

We’ve a group (evangelical & “holiness”) who’ve taken it upon themselves to refuse the Authorized (aka KJV) Bible. Some attended a left-leaning U. or seminary (almost all lean left) & picked up the idea that intelligentsia rejected It & they listened. Do Not Follow These (male/female, dressing careful or not, preacher or not). Some the brightest minds who’ve preached the Word in the last 400 yrs have used the KJV. The desire however, to appear “smart” has landed many in hell. Stay with the Classic. – 1/13/22

WORDS ARE FANTASTIC

Millions upon millions of words are in ink

Scattered on stone, glass, and metals that clink.

Nickel and steel, wood, plastic, and lead

Hold terms and words of what’s been said.

They bring love, direction, info, and cheer

Or doom in a message, a torrent of fear.

Who invented these tidy vehicles of thought

Whether expressing “bad” or what they ought?

God invented articulate sound spoken and heard

Oh, the power and beauty of a timely word.

– eab,  1/17/17

Do you, Friend, yes YOU, still have Carnal Anger, Envy, Pride Etc. in your heart? Have you been taught (sch.? or church?) that such can’t be removed? Or do you understand that Jesus’ sacrificial death was not only for sinS (capital on purpose) but also for sin – that nature of sin, the Adamic nature, carnality? If you want to be, you CAN be freed from the traits of carnality. You have to want this – yea, want its removal so much that you allow Jesus to destroy the nature of Adam. I urge you to do this. – 1/16/22

Do NOT believe what you see on TV (if you own such-hope you don’t). Do NOT believe the fictions spread by hollywood, disney, & the like. If social media says “yea” be prepared to believe “nay.” Don’t believe any modern news source to the exclusion of all others. Even the most right “news” may be correct on point A & be off (on purpose or otherwise) on point B &/or C. There are some who may not want you to think; That’s exactly what you need to start doing – YESTERDAY! 1/17/22

Suicide 4. Do not (knowingly) quote anybody who’s known to have committed suicide. A person long dead – regardless of how “popular” – or a person recent, from business, hollywood/disney, government – regardless of how “popular.” If they didn’t find life worth living they have nothing, NOTHING to say to me about “living.” They went to the trash heap (hell) – I have no intention to follow them NOR their warped “advice.” Please do not repeat their sadly mistaken ideas. 1/10/22 

They [God & the devil] both await either a coronation or a crucifixion.

As you packed away “christmas music” it was a good time to review it. Is it “christmas music” but not “Christian music”? Too many “christians” played (over & over) ditties made popular by hollywood, disney which are “seasonal” but not Christian. And too many “christians” bought & played music by artists who are known sinners, thus supporting rotten lives. Weed out (to never play again) the junk. Ask God to give you a new, deeper appreciation for the carols & hymns which HONOR Christ. – 1/11/22

arrogance

Prideful man wants you to think he knows a lot

It gets worse with more “letters” behind his name

Or, did the message please the One who sent you to deliver it, though the group was silent or even angered by truth? Holy Ghost inspired messages don’t please crowds used to laughter & jokes. Nor, brother, do jokes & comedy satisfy people who are filled with the Holy Ghost. – 1/13/22

“Fretting springs from a determination to get our own way…

[it] is wicked…Deliberately tell God…you will not fret about that thing.”

– Oswald Chambers

Jer 1.8

“Be not afraid of their faces:

for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD.”

Your attitude toward the English Bible tells something about you. 1.) If you openly oppose the King James, refuse to read It, (if a minister) never preach or quote from It – you may have a weight that’ll sink you down at death. 2.) If you’ve chosen to “not take sides” to “remain above the fray” you’re not being intellectually honest about the greatest Book in our language & ought to seriously pray about defending the KJV. Of course, belief in this Classic won’t save you, but you can obey It AND be saved. – 1/16/22

“Pride works frequently under a dense mask

& will often assume the garb of humility.”

– Adam Clarke
