Mat 19.4 +

Mat 19.4

“Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning

made them male and female…”

 

Marriage is an earthly reflection of a Heavenly relationship. God wants firm fidelity, absolute loyalty, & loving trust between husband & wife – – – Similar to the perfect God-to-mankind fellowship available in this life to all redeemed souls. The devil wants you to divorce your mate &, rascal that he is, wants you to “divorce” God. The choice is yours, husband/wife – you don’t have to get a divorce (God is abundantly able), nor do you have to backslide (“divorce”) God no matter how hard satan hounds you. – 7/19/19

 

“When the world comes in it will want to bring with it its idols.”

– V O Agan, sermon, 12/29/81

 

In my “neck-a-the woods”(OH) & in my stripe of holiness (Pilgrim) I recall no one discussing “Six Day Creation.” To my remembrance not a Christian h.s. teacher, not a Christian college prof. nor a chapel speaker awakened us to a Creation Week of six – 24 hr. days. Thank God for Henry Morris, PhD, who showed this clearly to me. Several decades later it’s considered a Christian World View. What else do we need to see? What do we need to claim ours from the Eternal Word of God? Are you willing to think? – 7/19/19

 

“A holy man is a holy horror in the hands of God.”

– V O Agan, Conf. sermon, 1955

 

SEASIDE BREAKFAST

Come, leave your night of toiling

On the boisterous “boiling”,

Of an open-faced sea.

Come, leave the laborious net,

And the fish you DID get

By simply obeying Me.

Come and dine; be ye filled

‘Tis your Master who has willed,

A meal for weary men.

Come now, and be refreshed,

Far more than you had guessed

Possible while in sin. – eab July 1980

 

“I like the old Wesleyan term – a bent to sin. There are people in the churches

all over this country who have been bent over by depravity.”

– Warren C McIntire

 

Pastor Brother – are you currently preaching thru a Bible Book? Have you recently done it? Allow me as a former pastor (& assoc. Bible professor) to encourage this. I’d encourage a NT Book, a shorter one but pray until you have God’s mind. Read the Book thru – at a sitting – a month or so before starting the series. Now read it thru again, taking notes & more slowly (not yet making sermons) getting a better understanding what God is saying. Preach at least one sermon per chapter but maybe 2-3 depending on thought clusters. Spend a lot of time in prayer & meditation. This series can help you AND your sheep. – 7/19/19

 

2Ti 4.2

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove,

rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering & doctrine.”

 

“Outbreaking sin comes after you are backslidden. Backsliding is a matter of quarreling with God over some issue – It is a matter of disobedience.”

– Warren C McIntire

 

Do you testify? Do you tell others (in church & out) that Jesus has forgiven all your sins? Do you tell people (in words & actions) the Holy Spirit has removed the old man (Rom 6.6) & his horrible traits? (Condemning a fellow worker for or a filthy joke is not testifying; sinners can do that). Family/friends need to know, for the Glory of God, that you belong to Jesus & what He’s done for you. “…They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb & by the word of their testimony…” (Rev 12.11). – 7/19/19
