Psa 147. 7 – 9

“Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God:

“Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains.

“He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.”

“Calvinism is Christianity obscured by mists of Pharisaic election and reprobation and by a cloud of stoical fatalism. Popery is Christianity under a cloud of Pharisaic bigotry and under thick fogs of heathenish superstition. Judaism is Christianity under the veil of Moses. Mohammedanism is a jumble of Christianity Judaism Gentilism and imposture.”

– John Fletcher, from his WORKS vol.I

Bible – corn

“A Bible is a Bible.” Is this true? “An ear of corn is an ear of corn.” If you’re a tune to genetically modified foods you know the last statement is false. If you’re a tune to translationally modified “bibles” you know the first statement is false. Christ said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (Joh 12.32). Bibles that LIFT up Jesus Christ & never detract from Him being the Son of God are Bibles. A book (though labeled “bible”) which removes passages glorifying Jesus Christ is not to be trusted.

So you’re going to plant a garden

With many a green-on-green row.

Some seed of this and some of that

You’re deciding where they will grow.

You’ve chosen veggies that you like

Because as we all now know;

Harvest is NOT a time of surprise

We reap just what we sow.

Bike Accidents.

A friend whose relative bikes said, “It’s not if, but when;” bicyclists have accidents.

Death. Death is not if but when. You’re going to die. I’m going to die. My parents/yours died (or will).

Ignoring death is an option – (most of us did when younger). But ignoring death is not a smart option. “What is smart?” Prepare for death. You memorized Joh 3.16, now think about it and ACT on it.

You don’t have to “perish” if, IF you Believe on Christ.

Ante-Nicene Quote

“But they are altogether demoniacal working, and the phantasms of idolatry, and are in reality the precessors of that dragon who, by means of a deception of the same kind, will with his tail cause a third part of the stars to fall . . .”

– Irenaeus from his AGAINST HERESIES

Mat 3. 7

“But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, ‘O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?’”

>> John the Baptist was a prophet – not a politician. <<

“Sadducees are the liberals of the New Testament,

Pharisees are the legalistic ones of the New Testament.”

– Paul W Finch, Sr. (quote is close to if not exactly his words)

The world will go to a worldly church and feel good about going. Worldly souls should feel welcomed at church by smiles and personal warmth but sinners should never feel 100% comfortable in church. Dirt is not at ease when sparkly clean is near.

Since I’ve retired from pastoring I post things on SM (social media) to make men/women think. Hopefully think and thereafter talk to Jesus, if/as they need to. You might say I’m a modern “Circuit” riding preacher.
