Jos 10.12 +

Jos 10.12

“…Joshua…said in the sight of Israel, ‘Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon;

and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.’”


* TRINITY * (8.)

Gal 4.6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.


“We love to give to those we love.”

Death, like an enemy sniper, keeps “picking off’ those around us. Sometimes it’s a high school friend, dead way-too-soon. Sometimes it’s a neighbor. And always death is picking off our ancestors – the great grandparents, the grandparents, the parents – – – then, puff it is you. Are You Ready? – eab, 6/13/18




To enter heaven you don’t have to please me

That could be too easy – or too hard.

Nor do you have to please dear ole dad

(Maybe a much better “punch card.”)

But you & I, as creatures of earth’s dust,

Have One we must please, yes, /must/.

I can’t see what makes you “click”

Don’t know why you took that action

God – now – He knows you “like a book”

Understands, perfectly every re-action.

I wouldn’t want to see a pumping heart

(That could really “gross me out.”)

Nor wish to see your spiritual part

(Who enjoys seeing pride or a pout?)

God sees all, has since we’ve been on earth

He, Praise His Name, offers us new birth

A new you – ah, wouldn’t that be great?

Be “born again” today; before its too late.

1Jo 3.14

“We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren.

He that loveth not his brother abideth in death.”


In a desire to not hurt (there’s a place for such, in balance) we’ve tended to “assume” a friend’s family member went to heaven. It seems cold, if not mean, to assume they went to hell. But, is it not calloused & far too casual with God’s Word, to assume they went up? Reminder. We don’t have access to “the ledger” in either place. We need to live so peers hunger to know God, & to assume less about souls once gone.

“Among early Christians…a man could not be an astrologer,

 magician, innkeeper, or an idol-maker.”

– J. Vernon Jacobs


God has spoken to this earth: by Prophets, by His Son, by apostles & by the Bible. Do you care to read what His Book says? God might speak to you through a modern sermon. Do you stay away from Holy Houses? God may speak to you through the death of a friend/relative. Do you avoid all the funerals that you can? Someday you’ll be very GLAD you listened to Him or, Or, super SAD that you did not listen!
