Eternity + + +

Be content. Make it a game to use what you have, now & all of life. There’s pleasure in “making do” “stretching the dollar” “re-purposing” items others would’ve discarded. I’m not a “tree-hugger” or an “eco-wacko” but a man whom God has endowed with a degree of common sense & has enabled to see a new “use” for this or that, across years. Be content. It-is-a-choice!

“I AM.”

I love that Name

God is the ever-present Present.

He guarantees the certainty

Of His habitation: eternity.

In teaching how Bible I’ve used my hand to help people remember 5 questions as they study.

Thumb – short – ask a short (3 letter) question “Who.”

Index finger – longer – ask a longer (4 letter) question “What.”

Middle finger – longest – ask the longest (5 letter) question “Where.”

Third finger – back down – ask a long (4 letter) question “When.”

Little finger – short – ask second short (3 letter) question “Why.” (Apply to all subjects) – eab, 1/7/18


“When I got serious with God, God got serious with me.”

– B J Walker, sermon, 8/4/2009


Some people do not want to be bothered with thinking. They want to eat, sleep, work (little or lot depending on personality), marry, follow sports teams, & go to church without having to think. One reason ritualistic churches have popularity is attendees can be put-asleep-by-rites, not be forced examine anything.

2Co 6.2

“…Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.”


*Longer post – share for a friend.*

You used to attend a careful school/college/church. You _saw_ God move in services & knew it was His presence you felt in prayer-meetings. But you married, transferred to a bigger school or opted to go to a more fashionable church, & took on worldly ways. Decades have passed. Recently an even, death, tragedy grabbed your attention. You have a distinct impression God is trying to get your attention. I beg you, *listen.* You’re especially blessed that after yrs of wandering, that He’s returned & invites you to come back to Biblical living. It’ll be hard for you to pull out of the ruts you’ve been in – in fact it will take all the manhood/womanhood you can possibly muster. The devil will try to convince you that you can’t return to right, religious roots. “What will folks say?” Worse, “What will my children say?” The devil will appeal to your pride, he’ll remind you of your position in the church. _Stop_ putting off God. It is /your/ never dying soul which is at stake. “I can’t straighten out all these decades.” _Start_ doing this hour what you know you ought to do. Man-up. Repeat, “It will take all the manhood/ womanhood” you possess but 15 sec after you’re dead you’ll be glad you did. This very post maybe *your wakeup call*.
