Heb 11.26-27

“Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt:

for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

“By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king:

for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.”

…How far is love, even with many wrong opinions,

to be preferred before truth without love!

Potato Salad?

Potato Salad? *

You have added another egg, increased the mayo, keep adding spice (salt, pepper, celery salt, Mrs. Dash, etc) but it is not right. You are missing the potato – don’t you realize that potatoes are the main ingredient in potato salad? God is the “main ingredient” in life. You can keep on adding and adding but until/unless you put God in His rightful place your life will not be a salad.  

– eab, 8/12/10

* For decades “potato salad” was my most favorite food.

The birch tree gracefully dropped its leaves.

Its neighboring spruce said, “I’ll hold these”

Holds them as decorations briefly seen

Golden fragments clinging to evergreen.

  1. To help a person get free from tobacco is important

  2. To help a person get free from drugs is important

  3. To help a person get free from booze is important

  4. To help keep a virgin virtuous is very important

  5. To help keep a marriage in one-ness is very important.

None of the above redeems the soul.

Good people are giving long weeks to accomplish 1-5 (and other “good” deeds).

A soul redeemed will rectify most (if not all) of 1-5 and, be saved eternally AS WELL.

Love is blind,

Loneliness is near sighted,

Lust is cross-eyed.

The Commissioning

Our Lord had finished His ministry

Of untold, eternal worth,

Had died and been buried

In His-own-created earth.

He then arose victorious

Over hell and death and sin,

And just before He left

He commissioned a few men.

Celestial Railroad

Before creation God made the Way of Salvation. He provided the Celestial Railroad.

Every rail and tie, every culvert and bridge was in place before He made Adam, the first “engine.” Every person is his own “engine.” At birth there is a fire in the boiler, there is a nature tendency to be like God – the Eternal only self-sufficient Engine (said with great respect). At the age of accountability, we knowingly reject Christ and the boiler goes cold. The fire goes out. OR we chose to continue moving toward heaven [1] and a conversion takes place. God, in His graciousness, supplies the initial fire (fire being mysterious has a similarity to God). God even supplies the coal. The Railroad is God’s, the “engine” (individual) is God’s, the coal is God’s – all He asks us to do is shovel. Keep putting on the coal and you’ll have fire. Have fire and you make progress. It is all in God’s plan. But if the boiler goes cold the engine will begin to roll backwards. Backwards is opposite to heaven. The devil has no fire (though he is headed toward the Lake of Fire), he supplies no coal, and leaves you cold – cold & rolling uncontrollably backward. – eab, 9/26/11

[1] Innocent babes, pre-accountable youngsters, and unaccountable insane folks are all moving toward heaven.
