Isa 11.6

“The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.”

 

“…Except ye be converted & become as little children ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”(Mat 18.3). OK. What’s it like to be a little child? Little children: Look up to their father, See their Father as the greatest, Need your help, Don’t worry about what’s for supper, say “Hold me,” Believe anything you tell them, Forgive easily, Cry unashamedly, Have as much “fun” with a box as what came in it.

“Christ does not propose to emancipate any person from the necessity

of exercising his judgment in regard to his innocent appetites.”

– Daniel Steele

 

Christ is the Word. The antichrist has a number (Rev 13.18). Christ & antichrist are in contrast & it can be argued words & numbers are in contrast. Christ is uncreated. The devil (force behind antichrist) was created – not created evil but with a will & exercised it to become evil. If “words” are in contrast to “numbers” it could be stated that since Christ already was the Word (& therefore had the upper hand in the area of articulate express) satan chose to inflate numbers, to commandeer them for his realm of darkness & to make fallen man think numbers more important than they are.

LUNCH

Woodpeckers, knocking for their dinner,

Lions preying for theirs,

Squirrels, literally going nuts,

Colts galloping to their mares,

Moo moos mowing the meadow at a munch,

All kinds of animals looking for their lunch.

Luk 16.24

“…Send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue;

for I am tormented in this flame.”

 

A sinner spends a life-time making a name for himself – and then dies. Within a few years he becomes one of earth’s un-remembered millions. Hell is known as a place of torment, but it may also be a place where men are totally forgotten. “Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it” (Luk 17.33).

“Learn to say ‘No.’

It will be of more use to you than to be able to read Latin.”

– Charles Spurgeon

 

Educational degrees can become a substitute for holiness (& have several times).

A highly disciplined life can become a substitute for holiness (& may hide the carnal nature).

And, sadly, a faulty theology can make holiness seem unnecessary – – – until the death rattle is yours.
