Genesis 1.21-22

“And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

“And God blessed them, saying, ‘Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth.’”

“Prayer is not to inform God of what He does not know;

it is an eye through which we see God.”

– Wilfred Grenfell, MD, from his book, What Christ Means to Me

When a heathen finds the “Creator” to be God, he can leave his 1st god for the 2nd.

When a man/woman worships themselves, they may reach the point of realizing

what a poor “god” they make and commit suicide.

You precious Jesus, You loving Lord

Supplied Your men meekness, meekness You afford.

Not weakness under pressure but power to be still,

Awaiting the outcome of a Savior’s loving will.

Oh, the luscious fruit of the Upper room.

Oh, the life that came from an empty tomb.

God give us today a newness of vision,

An awareness that Your miraculous provision,

Stopped not with the shores of distant Galilee,

But flows on today, flows on to me,

And finally temperance You gave without measure;

Having a little can also be great treasure,

Saying “no” to a meal or “no” to a drink

Might make the glutton and drunkard think,

That there’s more to life than plate or cup,

Don’t look down at “de feet” Look up, Look up.

The God who drove the groove, through the ancient sea,

And supplied manna without charge, bill, or fee,

And sent His Comforter in Pentecost past,

Still lives, Still loves, Still yearns to cast,

Ones carnal old troubles away from His men,

And place all the fruit of the Spirit within.

Great God of the Testaments, glorious and bold,

Revisit Your people as You did of old,

I love you Lord Jesus, I love you fine Lord.

Living, eternal, loving, gentle Word.

Read the details

To obtain license a licensing company puts out a manual.

The booklet has DETAILS about things to do, things not to do. You may think it lays TOO much stress here or not enough over there but, since you’re the one seeking license, you’ll be ahead to not criticize the booklet but read it and heed it. On testing day you’ll be glad you did.

On an indescribably higher plane (this serves as a pitiful “parable”) in order to have LIFE ETERNAL God, the ultimate Authority on all things, in all countries, for all time, has inspired a Wonderful Bible. It’s not your job to criticize, or accept cheap paraphrases of It, but to read It (and Heed It).
