Mat 7.17 +

Mat 7.17

“Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit;

but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.”


Guard what you read. And, if anything, guard more what children read. Modern fiction books written by sinners should be judiciously avoided. Modern fiction penned by professing “christians” should be read with a willingness to cull, as needed. Read that “innocent looking” book before giving it to a child or grandchild. “But…But…I know the writer or know the writer’s a good person.” Easy. The soul of that child is worth far more than your confidence in any author. The devil slyly inserts his garbage in “good” books unless the writer has been sanctified holy & is current with God. 8/10/19


“We are not diplomats but prophets &

our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum.”

– A W Tozer



Don’t feel sorry for me when I don’t attend your fair

I have no desire to be caught there.

It’s noisy, costs money, some sights are “a sight”

Bad enough by day, probably worse by night.

False fronts, sleaze, gambling, etc. I can’t bear.

“Whatever the sin-made world happens to be clamoring after at the moment is

cleverly shown to be the very thing the gospel offers only the religious product is better.”

– A W Tozer


People are attracted to men who claim to be “men of God” – can turn out very badly.

People are attracted to men who truly are men of God – this is better.

People are attracted to God – the Best, the very Best. – 8/12/19


Isa 55.2a

“Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread?

& your labor for that which satisfieth not?”


“Much ado about nothing” – Shakespeare, not a favorite author by far, once wrote “Much ado about nothing” – in this he was right. So much of the our world is spending huge amounts of time, gross stacks of dollars preparing for & advertising, acting out, screaming/clapping for, crying (as it closes), tearing down, reviewing the success of (or lamenting the failure of) said event, scheduling next season’s successor, & starting all over again. 100’s of times these actions are repeated of events which should not have happened at all & in the annuls of true history will receive (rightly so) little-to-no notice. Please Believer, think about what YOU commit time & energy to attend or promote. Is It Really Nothing? 8/12/19


“The Methodists (at Barbados) were called ‘Hallelujahs’

& were hooted by that nickname in the streets.”

Jesus Christ was the most wonderful Man/God to ever trod earth. Christ Jesus is the most wonderful God/Man who inhabits eternity. He will come again to earth, in God’s perfect timing. Have you asked Him to live in your heart? (He already lives/has lived in millions of hearts across earth.)

Today is *just* the right time to Pray! – 8/12/19


“…his long life [Wesleys’] – a life which the philospher must pronounce singularly

successful & fortunate, the Christian singularly providential.”

– Able Stevens
