1Jo 1.9 +

1Jo 1.9

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful & just to forgive us our sins,

& to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”


“We are aware that mercy endures a long time; but we also know that mercy ceases

& that one can cross the dead line, if he continues to resist the Spirit’s pleading.”

– J B McBride /Knowing God/


Some very confused people want to call right, wrong. Probably more people see (or think they see) wrong as right. Many of this latter class once knew wrong, as wrong, but after seeing peers having such “fun” doing this wrong or that, they changed their minds, started practicing wrong, & in order to salve their conscious began to call this indulged wrong “right.” Please Friend, stopping lying to yourself before you are totally lost – eternally lost.

“…We who are Christians are expected by & by to be like Jesus,

not only in one particular but in every particular…”

I LOVE    

“I love my house, I love my car,

I love my sport, I do.

I love my wife, I love my kids,

But I don’t care about you.


“I love my job, I love my club,

I love “me country grand.”

But I care little about the lost

The lost of heathen’s dark land.”

Jam 5.20

“…He which converteth the sinner from the error of his way

shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins.”


A change is coming. This change will be phenomenal & final. It’s coming to/for you, to your family members, to your every friend, in fact, to each human on the face of the earth. It’s. Called. Death. Perhaps a grandparent’s funeral was your first memory of Death. A few years/decades & Death took a sibling or a parent. We were very much on the “outside” of these. Soon Death will be personal for us, for you for me. Allow yourself to think about Death – yes, *make* yourself think about it. If heaven’s saints have a memory of earth I do not know. Hell’s sinners do. “…Prepare to meet thy God…”(Amo 4.12)

“When you get close enough to God, He’ll show you things.”

Let me remind youth – your parents had access to a wonderful, earthly information source – an unabridged dictionary. It was more reliable perhaps than many online sources. They also had access to a wonderful, heavenly information Source – The unabridged Holy Bible. This is in every way more reliable than any human ideas about eternity. And – good news – these two sources are also available to you. Use them!
