                   OR man’s applause – not both.   – eab, March ‘09

I do not know the hour or moment,

When my Jesus shall return.

I do not know the week or day,

When this ole world will start to burn.

I simply know that He has promised,

Both events to take place;  I’m looking forward,

I’m looking upward, I’m waiting now to see His face.

 

For a few years and a few miles,

God’s footstool we are to roam.

It is only to prepare us for our eternal home.

The soul was made for heaven;

And up there it will be blessed.

Be praying, working; O, be not shirking,

Be looking forward to Scriptural rest.

 

So many people are attached to,

This ole globe with its toys.

Forgetting that their true possessions,

Are their girls and their boys.

Cars and houses, lands and money

Are but features of the time;  I’m laying treasure,

I’m building higher,  I’m looking forward to the sublime.

 

The closing of this present age,

Must be very near indeed.

Look around you, read your Bible;

Understand it and take heed.

The Prince of Peace will soon be coming

To Jerusalem to reign.  Prepare to be there.

Prepare with all care. Prepare don’t live your life in vain,

          – eab, 3/30 – 4/1  1972

Discipline is what moderns need the most and want the least.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 11.

 

Theodore Roosevelt said “The things that will destroy America are prosperity at any price, peace at any price, safety first instead of duty first, the love of soft living, and the get rich theory of life.”

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 18.

 

Discipline must be seen as a servant, not a savoir…Discipline unquestionably makes a man superior.  If not watched, it will make him feel superior.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 40.

 

Faith can release in a moment powers for holiness that discipline cannot command in a millennium. 

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 54.

 

The baptism of the Hoy Spirit gives neither a trained mind nor trained hands.  The holiest soul may be ignorant, awkward, and blundering…he may have no trade, skill, art, or profession.  But not for long.

– Richard Taylor, The Disciplined Life (Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Inc., 1962), 60.

 

Richard Shelley Taylor was born this date (3/30/1912) in Cornelius, Oregon.  He wrote several other books including A Right Conception of Sin.  It was my privilege to sit under his teaching in the Chamberlain Holiness Lecture Series at Wesley Biblical Seminary, Jackson, MS.  Got to meet him and he autographed five of his books for me.
