Oft God + + + +

Do you have a desire to be holy? (I speak not of this stripe of “holiness” nor that cultish variety over there.) When confronted (the Bible, a tract, an electronic track, a minister) with Biblical Holiness – the only real kind – there’s an attraction to it or there is not. Which is you?

God bless every man

Who’s been faithful and true

Since the moment of his first call.

And God bless the woman

Who’s done all t’was due

To the blest Savoir of us all.

And, yet, yet, oft God,

Your mercy and your grace,

Has succored us who’ve had a fall.

Are you reading? I encourage you to read 3 books “at the same time.” The first One is good One. You may want to read in 2 or more locations. (My late, intelligent, & very likable friend, Sam Lindahl, read in 6 different places per day.) The second book should challenge mentally/spiritually. Use a marker – you can read a lot of theology a-few-pages-at-a-time. Consider making the third a holiness biography.



“God never performs a miracle to satisfy curiosity…”

– A L Vess, /Bible on Tongues/


Why is that new item marked ½ price? They made too many. Or they’re imitations. Or they’re defective. Or they won’t do what the maker thought they’d do. God didn’t make too “much” Salvation. Imitations abound (for less than ½ price but God didn’t make them). His holy Salvation is not defective (people are human but you can be both holy & human). Salvation will do what the Maker intended – it can get a mere mortal to heaven! Salvation does not “go on sale”!



Isa 55.1

“Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and

he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat…”


If your roots are strongly evangelical or holiness please don’t have even one date with a Buddhist, Jehovah’s Witness, Mormon, Moslem, Pentecostal, Roman Catholic etc. (“Don’t take 1st drink, won’t be a drunk” = don’t have 1st date, won’t marry.) If you marry such & you die first, your husband/wife may have a funeral/burial that suits their beliefs & there’s little your family can do but endure. *Food *For *Thought!  2/9/18
