Isa 55.7 +

Past students were drawn to God’s Bible School in part because the venerable L D Wilcox taught there.

By-gone men were drawn to Hobe Sound Bible College in part because a learned S D Herron was there.

Pupils were drawn to /then/ Frankfort Pilgrim College in part because a holy J Wesley Adcock was there.

They didn’t go because the schools were accredited. Accreditation is overrated by institution thus labeled, by parents, & students. We again need thinkers & prayers like Wilcox, Herron, Adcock & other past men.

Isa 55.7

“Let the wicked forsake his way & the unrighteous man his thoughts & let him return unto the Lord & he will have mercy upon him & to our God for he will abundantly pardon.”

 

…If you will not let God save you, if you will not let God take you to Heaven,

as surely as you are here He will let you burn in the fires of a devil’s hell.”

– J Wesley Adcock

 

A man who fails to see how wicked, utterly wicked, his heart is, thinks he does not need “saved.” A man partially awakened to his soul need, may want to save himself: rituals, rigid rights, or wrong rites. Only the man awake, only the man shown by the Lord, the full wickedness of his heart, knows he can’t save himself & therefore cries out to God for mercy – mercy lest he drop into hell tonight.

– eab, 3/21/19

 

“…Individuals…remember in Hell…remembering that they did not have to go there –

it was their own decision.”

– J Wesley Adcock

 

THE GIFT OF SPRING

Thank you God for the gift,

And lift, of color in the spring;

For tree’s strait stance, awaiting the glance

Of the sun, in its northern swing. – eab, Mar. ’71

 

“Lies, exaggerations, misunderstandings, & hearsay

make up perhaps more than half of all that is said & written in the world.”

– C S Lewis, /Miracles/

 

You’re a Christian & travel to another country. Please for the sake of God & His Kingdom don’t be “an America” (or Canadian, Brit etc) there – be a Christian. No one can help where they’re born (you nor those you visit abroad) but All, repeat ALL, may become Citizens of Heaven. The world doesn’t need you to spread nationalism – it needs you to testify, in word & deed, of Christ. Some abroad would love to climb into your suitcase & come to a better country. Can’t happen. But they CAN become a child of the King & someday enjoy a Land so superior to US (Canada, Britain, etc) that it’s impossible to make comparisons.

1Co 6.9

“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,”

 

“…We seldom find Christian miracles denied

except by those who have abandoned some part of the Christian doctrine.”

– C S Lewis, /Miracles/

 

No one can stop you from being a saint. Well – almost no one. The one who can stop you from being saintly wears your shoes. And – no one can make you a saint. No parent, no organization, no pope. To be saintly or not be saintly – that, friend, is between you & the Lord.

– eab, 3/23/19
