Mat 9.33 + + + +

Mat 9.33

“And when the devil was cast out, the dumb spake: and the multitudes marveled, saying, It was never so seen in Israel.” [emphasis added]



“Man of God” – is the highest title on earth. A very small number of men (OT, NT, or since) have been truly “men of God.” If it is true & the man cannot “be bought,” wonderful!  If a supposed “man of God” succumbs to pressure from peers, denominational leaders, or church boards, after God & His Word directed him, he doesn’t deserve the title.

“No person has such a full view of his own astonishing weakness

as does the holy man.”

– H A Baldwin, /Holiness & the Human Element




You are more wonderful than human pen can define,

Beyond the description of the longest, good, inked line,

Majestically huge, yet IN this unworthy heart of mine.

Jesus, Precious Jesus.

Gal 4.16

“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”


Many readers made a second trip to the altar (church, camp, convention) & received what you claimed was the Holy Spirit. Don’t throw away your confidence (unless you need to) but allow a little questioning. Is this “second work” working? Are “…Love, Joy, Peace…(Gal 5.22) evident in your life? Would your wife/husband or child/parent say so? Please friend, the question at death’s door will deal much more (IMO) with what is “working” than some ancient moment when it supposedly started.

“Preach doctrine, preach all the doctrine that you know, & learn forever more…but preach it always not that men may believe it, but that men may be saved, by believing it.”
