Isa 55.6 +

Isa 55.6

“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found,

call ye upon him while he is near:”

 

“Speculation about the future took the place of study of the past & present & of careful comparison of the facts of history with the predictions of prophecy.”

– L L Pickett /The Antichrist/

 

Jer 27.5 I have MADE the Earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.

– God made Heaven, Earth, World # 27

 

“The Bible nowhere tells us that a Jew will be the antichrist.”

– L L Pickett /The Antichrist/

 

SYCAMORE

Your leaves are now gone,

Like the wooded throng,

Of which you are one.

But your spheres still swing,

Patiently awaiting spring,

With its warm sun.

– eab, Jan. 1966

 

1Co 6.9b – 10b

“…Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

 

Dad’s dad (C. “Edgar”) passed away before I was born. Mom’s mom died when I was 5. Mom’s dad (from whom, happily, I got my middle “Andrew”) died when I was in h.s., & Dad’s mom also. Why tell you this? If you have 4 grandparents go see all 4 this year. If you have 3 grandparents write them of your appreciation that they’re in your life. If you have 2 grandparents send them birthday cards. If you have but 1 let him/her know you love them & show it with a call. Once they’re gone it’s too late to listen to stories of their childhood, their early married life, or some detail about your dad/mom. Love them.

– eab, 1/7/19

 

“…Paul very well says ‘They deny the power of godliness.’ He does not say they deny godliness but they deny the power, strength, & virtue…by false & superstitious doctrine.”

– Martin Luther

 

The man who wants to talk, stand like, smell like, wear his hair, dress like a women is rebelling against God’s most basic category: male & female. The woman who wants to walk, swear, cut off her hair or dress like a man is in rebellion. Christians are not naturalists, per se, but we do have Paul’s words, “Doth not even nature itself teach you…”(1Co 11.14). God while you live, allows you to rebel, but at death an awful payment starts for revolting against Him.

– eab, 1/8/19

 

“He who will have, for his master & king, Jesus Christ, the son of the virgin,

who took upon himself our flesh & our blood will have the devil for his enemy.”

– Martin Luther /Table talk/
