Come Back

To come back and stand where you once stood, will take a HIGH degree of manhood – more than most men can muster. Pride will get in the way; “What will folks say?” What does it matter what people say? Will that matter on your death day? Come back to the spot from which you slipped, from which you slid. Come back to what the Bible teaches. Come back to that which you once correctly believed. Stand again for Godly truth. MAN UP – Someday you’ll be so glad you did – – – or soooo sad that you did not.

Move up and on

I do not want to write this because I highly respect marriage & the glue which holds it together for decades. But if your wife/husband is not determined to go to heaven & you are, do NOT leave them physically (provided your union is legit) but be willing to move up & on with God. Your act of faith may draw their admiration or their ire but heaven will be worth it. Be willing to mind the Holy Spirit even if (heaven forbid) the two of you have different eternities. (As you pull near to God you’ll love your mate more & more.)

God was there, everywhere,

Before earth had an anywhere.

And when earth’s everywhere,

Disappears into thin air,

He’ll be here, and there, and everywhere!

“The Bible is not a science book.”

Who said? What short-lived, limitedly-learned man would you quote to prove that? The Word of God is more than a science book but don’t allow a mere mortal convince you It’s not authoritative in every area It addresses. It was written by God (via human penmen). God knows ALL in every field. Would YOU start to study references to sun, moon, stars, sea, water, cycles, clouds, mountains, minerals, mines, metals, trees, wood, herbs, grass, flowers, birds, mammals, insects, disease, birth, death, etc?

The Bible is the first science Book and has the last science answers important to man.

A Quote From Luther

“…The Holy Ghost teaches, preaches, and declares Christ…

we must first hear the Word and then afterwards the Holy Ghost works in our hearts…”

Table Talk, p.107

A Quote From Luther

“…Many have had the Holy Spirit before the birth of Christ,

and yet he was not revealed unto them.”

Table Talk, p.106



Who will come first Christ or the antichrist? If Christ is first why did He warn not to be “deceived” (Mat 24.4, Mar 13.5, Luk 21.8)? Consider 2 more vv: Mat 24.30b “…then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn and they shall see the Son of man coming…” & Rev 1.7 “…He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see him…all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him.” Why mourning/wailing? Will they do this because they’ve already taken the Mark (thinking he was real) & NOW know they’re damned? Think.

D “death” was once a known, but distant foe.

E (each one dies you eventually come to know)

A and yet, we hate to admit facts, ancient, grim

T (thinking how we’d out-run, out-smart him)

H how wrong: “appointed…once to die” – we all go.

Many rich men/women are trying to make “heaven” out of some corner of earth. They accumulated enough to buy a huge yacht, a fine building (have penthouse on entire floor or two), own sections of land, a private jet. They travel & dine first class & dress well. Sadly, if they’ve not submitted to Jesus Christ they’ll never see the real heaven & the one they’ve idolized will collapse. As I’ve driven by some nice homes I’ve prayed that they enjoy it but have a better one above (or similar words).

“The mere fact of GLOSSOLALIA or any other estatic utterance

is no evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit.”

  1. F. Bruce, BOOK OF ACTS



Gal 6. 7

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked:

for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”



The last couple of yrs I’ve become increasingly aware of satan’s deception. I wish I could awaken you. The devil has strongholds (Rev12.9 “…deceiveth the whole world…” Rev18.23 “…all nations deceived”) & is strongly using US via massive “news,” TV, & hollywood’s devilish industries. Yes, Friend there IS danger of YOU being deceived (some of you already are). Pray. OPEN your eyes. Learn to question everything but the Bible & become better acquainted (reading, memorizing, meditating) with It.

A Quote From Luther

“When thou art of this mind, that Christ and the confidence of the Law may dwell together in thy heart…

it is not Christ but the devil that dwells in thee, Who under the mask and form of Christ terrifies thee…”

Table Talk, p.103


It may come as no surprise, neither “history” “geography” “math” “literature” nor “grammar” are in the Bible (“science” is there, negatively). What IS there? Readeth 4, “Reading” 6, and “Read” 70 times. “Writeth” 1, “Writing” 38, “Wrote” 62, “Write” 88, and “Written” 280 times. The ability to Read and Write surpass all other “subjects.” The child who’s been taught to read well can go on to learn many subjects. The child who’s been taught to write properly can express all that God have ordained for him. Home-schooling parent never, NEVER under-estimate the importance of these two.

P R A Y or  P L A Y

Men who should be praying,

Are (immaturely) playing.

Women who should be in a place of prayer,

Are more concerned about face and hair.

The founders/fighters of the revolution (1776) didn’t do Christians a favor. God is KING. That revolution lowered or obliterated understanding of Kingdom, Kinghood, being Subjects, Royalty and gave instead a spirit of rebellion and “I’ll do it my way” mentality. The longer I live the less I’m convinced that 1776 should be celebrated. God has graciously given local revivals but we’re not the nation we could have been if we’d learned human kingship and applied that to the KING of heaven and His Kingdom.

“The actor who had to play the part of pagan gods and heroes, the teacher who was forced to teach pagan mythologies in pagan schools, the gladiator who had to take human life for sport, the soldier who wielded the sword, the policeman, and the judge all had to renounce their heathen professions if they wanted to be baptized.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer, COST OF DISCIPLESHIP



1Jo 4. 3a

“And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:

and this is that spirit of antichrist…


False religion #1 The devil is slick – he has a false spirit which masquerades as the “holy spirit.” Souls who once knew better, were in a “church” last week and felt a spirit which they assumed was from God – it was not. Said counterfeit spirit may have given an emotional high, caused them to “speak in tongues,” subjected them to jerk or fall to the floor, may have lead them to make guttural sounds even animal noises, but, just like the devil, this spirit did not require them to live holy. – eab, Spring 2017

False religion #2 Avoid all meetings where the above is practiced. If you find yourself in such an atmosphere, leave. Leave now! “What will my friends think?” What your friends think is far less important than you exposing yourself to that spirit from satan. God’s Holy Spirit has real demonstrations but they are modest, reasonable, and not poured out on men or women living in sin. – eab, Spring 2017

My Brother, my Sister, a serious question – you owe me nothing; you DO owe yourself an ANSWER!  Why are you SO deep into entertainment (E.)?  A lot of E. reeks with worldliness.  Some E. is dubbed “Christian” (a misnomer?).  Do you REALLY believe there’ll be stages, ball diamonds, fairs, football fields, theaters, circuses, race tracts, amphitheaters or amusement parks in heaven?  You can renounce them now – to please Him OR wait till death pulls them away from you.  (Don’t think that they’re in hell.)
