Be Filled

“And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess;

but be filled with the Spirit”

When I see some people who profess to be sanctified,

I either want to be inoculated or … quarantined.”

– H Robb French, quoted in an Earl Newton sermon, 2/8/94

> Said by a man who believed in the real but was aware of the false.<

A Spirit-filled man

God is not limited by man’s limitations. God is not bound by man’s boundaries.

Nor is the Spirit-filled man tied by these. God and God’s man can do the “impossible”

when God has him ready and when God will be thus glorified.

God owns the treasures of gold

He lets us use them for a life-time or less.

God also owns the treasures of cold

And spring and summer and fall, no less.

God owns the proverbial cattled hills

Diamonds in mines, pearls in the sea.

God owns the treasures of gulfs and small rills

And gives us artful sunsets, without a fee.

So – what can poor, puny, pitiful man

Give HIM? Can man give anything to the Lord?

We can GIVE Praises. Yes, we can.

Praise Him today, tonight, tomorrow in word.

Oh, let our thanksgiving abound

Wherever His people are found.

Thousands of souls sailed across the Atlantic toward a new life.

They chose to leave old Europe behind knowing they might make the North American shore or, OR might die at sea before reaching it. We’re all on “life’s sea.” Unlike those hardy souls we didn’t volunteer (we were well into our personal voyage before becoming aware of it). We have a much more important choice however – we choose to make heaven’s shore or die a spiritual death before reaching it. They chose the trip but not its outcome. We did not choose the trip but have full choice in the outcome.

Man Up!

Rev 5. 13

“And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, Blessing, and honor, and glory, and power, be unto him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.”

Separate holy

God wants us, His children, to be in this world (He never wants us to attempt to “usher” ourselves out – suicide). But He also wants us to NOT be of this world. Being separate from the culture around one is not easy. Knowing where to draw the line between “this” and “that” may take time, serious study of the Bible, and earnest prayer. I cannot urge you too strongly – made that effort. Heaven, I’m convinced will be worth every “sacrifice” that God presently requires.

The rest of the deer from that stage in time,

On that far away, rolling ranch,

Have now ceased to be, dying by

Cottonwood, outcrop, or a Dead Horse branch.


One buck from that era of western time,

A non-typical one that fall,

Still “lives” on, in a sense you’d say.

Majestically, he hangs on my den wall.

Men name buildings after themselves

or automobiles or inventions. They raise monuments in honor of a friend, dedicate books to a wife, and name streets for a child or parent. Man wants to be remembered. Or to see to it that so-n-so is remembered. (Might remind of “Ozymandias.”) One of the unstated punishments of hell may be, being forgotten. Hell’s inhabitants may be able to see all the splendors of heaven, see former relatives/friends in the height of holy enjoyments, and realize, not only are they (the damned) not there – but they are totally forgotten!
