Mat 1.25 +

Mat 1.25

“And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.”


‘Tis Anniversary Week**1. Before Martha met me she’d asked a former pastor to perform her wedding. I met him, it was alright, I’ve be happy that Levi W Whisner did our ceremony. The other minister was my former pastor, J D Webb Sr. All of Martha’s attendants are living but 2 of the 3 who stood with me, Jerry Lawson & Jerry Kosier, have died. We were married in the former Nazarene church (later “Jefferson Ave Tabernacle”) in Maryville, TN, 6/30/61. We’ve been married longer than either set of parents.

“Do not have as your motive the desire to be known as a praying man…Have no other motive than to know your Father in Heaven.”

– Oswald Chambers, /MyUtmostForHisHighest/


Why has God not told us more about Heaven? Ever asked yourself that? Perhaps it’s because we couldn’t grasp 1% of the truth. We’ve seen a little gold so can visualize it but “as” pavement? No. We may (or may not) have seen a pearl but one big enough to form a gate? (Gates can be huge, not a 3.0 door). If we want to know more about heaven – Let us determine to mind God & someday (soon?) witness for ourselves a splendor beyond present comprehension. Amen?

God, gratefully, is not limited to your church or mine

He doesn’t have need of your dollar, my dime

He works how & when He’s pleased.

Among the rich, those seen as poor

Where He finds willingness, an open door

There sin in removed; There burdens are eased.

Joh 1.9

“That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.”


Ever wondered why God loves you? There are billions a lot like you – why does He love you??? 1.) God is love (1Jo 4.8). 2.) How can I (mere mortal) guess? 3.) But forgive me, I will – He loves individuality. (He could’ve made us all alike &, I suppose, could’ve loved us in “samish-ness” but He didn’t.) So, IMO, God loves you, & YoU, yOu, & you over there (to infinity) related to us being different. BTW only God can make billions of humans similar enough to be humans, but different in so many ways. Amazing!

Although Sir Walter Scott…was surrounded by a library of 40000 books on his death-bed he said…“Bring me the Book.” When asked what book…he replied, “There is only ONE Book…”

– Gilchrist Lawson, /Thoughts About the Bible/


If Jesus has saved you run the opposite direction from “magic.” The words “magic” “magical” don’t occur in Holy Writ; “magicians” (Gen 41, Exo 7-8, Dan 1-2, 4-5) & magician (Dan 2) do – they are ALL aligned with satan. Don’t be curious about how tricks are done or work. To go were the false is paramount can hurt your Christian influence. God is real! The devil is false. Stay away from fabrications, slight-o-hand, card tricks, make believe, anything/anyone pretending to be what they aren’t. We’re not here to be entertained!
