1Pe 5.5 +

1Pe 5.5

“…God resisteth the proud &

giveth grace to the humble.”


“Truth has never lost ground by inquiry.”

– Wm Penn


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

Dan 5.20 But when his heart was lifted up, and his mind hardened in PRIDE, he was deposed from his kingly throne, and they took his glory from him:


“What you consider as your best excuse

He considers as your greatest sin.”

– Edward Payson


Being God

I love You Lord, the best that I can

And, You being God, understand.

But, oh, You love me, little ole me.

And being God, You love me perfectly.

Dying might be thought of as approaching the end of the hall where an elevator is. If you’re fully obeying God, you get into His “lift” & swish upward. Wonderful!!!

Friend – please harken – if you’re not obeying & not believing, the elevator door doesn’t open for heaven but you drop down a dark “elevator shaft” into hell. Horrible!!! – 8/8/19


Heb 9.27

“…Is appointed unto men once to die,

but after this the judgment:”


There are mobsters, red-light “madams” & war “heroes” in hell. I’m sorry – they didn’t have to go. It seems worse (possibly a mistaken idea) but hell also has former pastors & S.S. teachers – perhaps from the church down the road. They also didn’t have to go but “…the cares of this world & the deceitfulness of riches & the lusts of other things…” (Mar 4.19) entered their hearts & they lost out with God. – 8/8/19


“Nelson [John] said he would wear then ‘as a cross’ but would not fight as it was not

agreeable to his conscience & he would not harm his conscience for any man on earth.”

Home schooling? Don’t overlook Vocabulary Cards. Buy or have student make his own from a dictionary. The ability to read (pronouncing properly) & understand the meanings of words is so much a part of being educated. On 11/25/11 I finished going through an older dictionary highlighting all the one syllable words – an interesting, informative exercise. Might offer something like this for home school extra credit.- 8/8/19


“First…pardon (salv.begun) is received by faith producing works, 2nd…holiness (salv.continued) is faith working by love, 3rd…heaven (salv.finished) is the reward of this faith!”

– Able Stevens
