Genesis 2. 10 – 11

“And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and

became into four heads.

“The name of the first is Pison: that is it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah,

where there is gold;

People place too much emphasis on the Wedding – making an impression (for an hour) on people.

Place instead, the emphasis on the Marriage (it is the “real thing”)

– – – impress your husband/wife, for life!

Ever received at Christmas

A box surprisingly light?

It seemed it might be empty

When you looked inside ─ you were right. 


Except for a piece of paper

Its cavernous space was hollow,

Directions or “a promise” the

Giver expected you to “swallow.”


Some folks lives are hollow,

Shallow, empty, weighing light

They need Jesus to fix them,

Wrong needs replaced by right.


Friend is your life “on empty”

Running, but-barely, on short supply?

Are you grasping at earthly straws

Waiting, yet dreading to die?


Let Jesus fill your hollow life,

Fill it with purpose and song.

You too can shine and you can shout,

Now – – – and Eternally long.

Friends, please give THIS 2nd and 3rd thoughts.

There were holiness preachers in the 50’s & 60’s who gave clear warnings against catholicism.  They did not teach “penance” (Bible teaches Repentance).

These men of God would NOT have encouraged “lent.”  These narrow-way men would never have called a priest “father” (“…call no man your father upon the earth…” Mat 23.9), or referred to the RC as a denomination.

Please, ministers and church leaders Awake.  The move is on toward THE one-world church and lent seems a step that direction. 

Stop this drift.  Separation is vital.  Evangelicals and holiness souls, we did not need lent.
