Mat 7.7 +

Mat 7.7

“Ask & it shall be given you; seek & ye shall find;

knock & it shall be opened unto you.”

 

“…Pride [is] that odious vice which feeds on the praises it slyly procures,

lives by the applause it has meanly courted…”

– John Fletcher, /Works 3/

 

27 of 46 “…Pride & arrogancy…do I hate”(Pro 8.13).

Jer 13.17 But if ye will not hear it, my soul shall weep in secret places for your PRIDE; and mine eye shall weep sore, and run down with tears, because the LORD’S flock is carried away captive.

 

“The books of Moses are chiefly historical;

the epistles of St. Paul chiefly doctrinal.”

– John Fletcher, /Works 3/

 

apple or  corE ?

Which would you rather be

The apple or the core,

Bright and shiny to the eye,

Then eaten and heard of no more?

Or bearing for the future,

Seeds for the next crop & tree,

An apple or the core,

Which would you rather be?

If you’re a single man from a broken home who’s dating a girl from an unbroken home, you should become a serious student of what the NT teaches about marriage. Your parent’s failure to stay married isn’t your fault (never allow satan to “saddle” you with this) but it does make you vulnerable. The devil may tell you (after marriage when you & your wife disagree) “Dad & Mom couldn’t make it, guess I can’t either.” The devil is a liar. Your marriage can work, with the Lord’s help. But it will help you, your wife, & her parents, if you after study, are firmly convinced that divorce is never, repeat Never, an option.

Pro 18.22

“Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing

& obtaineth favor of the LORD.”

 

My wife (unlike many ladies) doesn’t mind telling her age. If you consider 7 the perfect number, today she has 7 decades, + 7 yrs on this, the 7th month. Our first date was at a college function in Feb. 1959. Something was funny – & if you know me you know I have loud laugh. She’d probably heard it on classroom floor or the dining hall but it was the 1st time she been seated right beside such noise. She was a bit startled but we had a 2nd date & – – – I’m still privileged to still date this lady. She’s been a great wife, a fine mother, a good cook, etc. Love you, Babe as you enter this new yr of your life. And wish you all the Blessings of heaven!

“The enemies of the Gospel have come into the church as angles of light. Infiltration & espionage have been successful…posses[ing] the field by…pleasant phrases & deceptive use of Christian terminology.”

– Carl McIntire

 

Parents: What do YOU do when your child throws you a new “may I” question? (One you never expected or didn’t expect it yet.) 1.) Give an automatic “no.” 2.) Give an automatic “yes” – with your mind pre-occupied with your phone conversation/text. 3.) Say, “I’ll have to think & pray about that.” Then seriously seek what God wants you to do. Parenting is SERIOUS business.

“Then it was the Bible being added to by the traditions of men. Now it is the Bible being torn to pieces by the criticisms of men…the truth & authority of the Bible are destroyed.”

– Carl McIntire
