Mat 12.36

“…every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.”

 

If satan can make a “pastime” look innocent. If he can convince you it’s OK to “kill time.” If the devil can “whitewash” black evil, until you see it as gray he is winning – – – & you are losing. So much time, so many twentie$, and so much talent is wasted by “christians” on so-called innocent, time-killing, “pastimes.”

“A true Christian was never known to be a persecutor.”

– John Fletcher, vol 3

 

TRIUNE

If we could have been there “Creation Morn”

When God (I speak reverently) played in dirt,

And glimpsed His pleasure in making man,

(And seen His grimace at thoughts of hurt).

 

If we could’ve watched Him lattice the heavens

With a trillion stars at a splash,

And felt Him harness ‘lectric lightning,

Giving it, its sizzle and flash,

 

If we could have stood by in wonder,

As He “finished” the peacock’s tail,

And sensed His majestic power

When He first “invented” hail.

 

If we could have seen – from freckled feather,

To the smallest azure lagoon,

We’d have seen Him “step back” with pleasure,

Gently signing it all, “Triune!”

Joh 3.20

“For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light,

lest his deeds should be reproved.”

 

Ministerial student or man with yrs of experience, let me encourage you, start a Bible Index (or name of your choosing). Q&A [Q.] “Why, I have Strongs or on-line concordance.” [A.] Some words aren’t in concordance, as: Abortion, Education, Gambling, Homosexual, Incest, Millennium, Omnipresence, Suicide, Tattoos, Trinity, Worry. Additional words are used for Biblical concepts for example: Carnality, Hell, Pride. – eab, 3/21/18

 

“No man can become a saint in his sleep…”

– Henry Drummond, /The Greatest Thing in the World/

 

Every person faced with the death of neighbor/relative wants to believe they went to heaven. (Few sinners seriously want the person in hell & no saint does.) Death is a hard time to expect us to not be emotional – it’s so final. So sometime between funerals, we need to consider; did all who were “preached into heaven” go there? The sad answer is no. “…Ye must be born again” (Joh 3.7). Those are not idle words – Christ meant every word He said. Those who reject the New Birth or who put-it-off, do not go to heaven.
