Mat 5.8 +

Mat 5.8

“Blessed are the pure in heart:

for they shall see God.”


“By learning a man may acquire knowldge; by knowledge, reduced to practice, experience;

& from knowledge & experience wisdom is derived.”

– Adam Clarke, /ChristianTheology/


Individuals with holy hearts (clean from pride, hatred, jealousy etc.) are happy. As opportunities arise they’re happy to tell others about inward purity. “Well, I wouldn’t want to say I was pure inside, it could sound like I was bragging.” Please understand, no person is pure of themselves. So, to speak of this miracle is to “Brag” on Jesus. Without His sacrificial gift no one is clean. With His death & resurrection we can be pure. All the glory belongs to Jesus. All. Of. It. Now & forever!

 “[Some] are fond of displaying their human credentials. These are easily shown;

those that come from God are out of their reach.”

– Adam Clarke, /ChristianTheology/



Poison ivy didn’t grow in the bowers of Eden

Or, if it did, it wasn’t poisonous there.

And the wolf didn’t live in the glens of the Garden

Or, if so, he was gracious to share.


We can look back in anger at Adam’s great sin

And we can wish to have lived in his place.

But there cometh a day much like Eden and better,

For all the redeemed,

ALL the redeemed of our whole race.

“…The central part of Pentecost is the Person

…the Holy Spirit…”

– S D Herron, sermon


You can go to heaven. Yes, you & You & YOU. The voice that says you can’t go there is satan – he’s a liar. But listen closely – you’ll have to want to go be with Jesus MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE! Drop everything that hinders you from being in the presence of Christ. Please hear me, e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g. There will be no “dyed-in-the-wool” republican (or democrats) in heaven. There’ll be no lovers of pleasure (more than they loved God). Die out to money, recognition, fame (yes even fame within church circles). You can go UP but it will take all the manhood you have. Ready?

Mat 5.48

“Be ye therefore perfect,

even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.”


“…Philip was living close enough to God, he could discern that it was God.

So he hurried down to Gaza.”

– S D Herron, sermon


“THAT will not happy at ‘x’ Christian school” (the one of your choice). “They’ll never have immorality between staff & student.” “They’ll not teach a compromised theology of holiness.” “They’ll not wink at the defining lines between purity & the world.” Oh? Please, I’m not advocating being carnally suspicious – But you & I need a holy watchfulness. Write no man (or organization) a “blank check.” All are accountable. – 6/14/19
