Going + + + +

The wicked sinner has a bit of God-likeness in him i.e. A.) he’s an individual, B.) he’s creative, C.) he has a will. The redeemed soul is instantly more like God – so much so that he’s now a “child of God.” When God calls him on into holiness, God is inviting him to be even more like Him “Be ye holy” (1Pe 1.16). Thomas Chisholm penned, “Oh, to be like Thee, Oh, to be like Thee…”

Given a few months, or a year or two,

(Hope you can handle a strong jar)

Strangers may wear your suits, not you;

Someone else may drive your car.

A new guy take your place on the job,

Someone else inhabit your fine house,

A neighbor eat your corn-on-the-cob,

And an old friend be married to your spouse.

“Stop! I can’t handle the stuff you say.

“Am I going, uh – – – uh, going far away?”

Didn’t you know, younger/older Friend?

Life for every woman & man comes to an end.

Repent and prepare now to leave earth’s abode.

“How?” Let Jesus have your heavy sin-load.

“The antichrist is not going to say he’s the antichrist” – Steve Herron, c.‘67. Allow a related eab thought. A false prophet is not going to tell you he’s a false prophet. In fact, he’ll talk in part like a holy man, dress enough like one we’ll not be alarmed, & preach some shallow stuff (a cultist could’ve said it) that “sounds” good. Listen for details, Look carefully, Stop assuming. Christ prophesied they’d come. They have.

“A sinning man will stop praying and a praying man will stop sinning.”

We receive impressions from our world via Hearing, Sight, Smell, Taste, & Touch. These important “gates” (I’m grateful for each) allow senses in. They’re one-way – entry only. There’s one more important “gate.” It also is one-way – it’s an exit “gate.” You guessed it – the mouth. What comes out of the Mouth-Gate is more important (eternally) than anything that goes in. “O, be careful little mouth what you say…”

Mat 7.21

“Not every one that saith unto me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;

but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.”


Does God have the key to your kitchen: what your body consumes? Does He have the key to your library/den/family room: what your mind consumes?   Does God have the key to your music room (or car radio): another area of mind consumption?  Does God have the key to your attic – what no one sees -where you’ve stored memories of what you do not /now/ do, but wish you could?
