Rev 21.5 +

Rev 21.5

“And he that sat upon the throne said,

Behold, I make all things new…”

 

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

Mar 7.22 Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, PRIDE, foolishness:

 

“You can’t understand the Bible without the new heart.”

BROAD ROAD

On the broad road you can pull a wide load:

The pleasure, the frolic, the game.

You feel you must pursue them, really want to do them

Without “sport” and “show,” life would be sooo tame.

But believe it or not, you’ll someday see them as rot

Acknowledge their binding strings with shame.

(For narrow is the way to eternity’s bright day.)

Your excuses to the Almighty will be very lame.

Every 7 days there comes ‘round the most special of days. Some (sadly) call it “sun-day” – we don’t worship the sun & the sun (made for the earth Gen 1) shouldn’t have a day of honor. Some have tried to pull “sabbath” across the line from OT to NT & others use “christian sabbath” – it is neither. The Friends used to use “First Day” which is accurate to the calendar week. Does the Bible have a title for this special day? John said he was “…in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day…”(Rev 1.10). Thank God for the first day of the week which Jesus made special by His glorious resurrection. It’s right to call it the Lord’s Day. – 9/8/19

 

“We are all just as other men until the Spirit of God comes upon us.

How badly we need Him.”

Some (most J) of you see me has peculiar & I am. Here’s one thing – I like corn & I like beans but you can have the succotash. Nor do I care for mixed fruits. Just recently the Lord helped me to see I DO like His Mixed Fruit. Oh, I thank God for them. Let us all become partakers of His “Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance” (Gal 5.22-23). Not worthy but I thank God for these in my life. – 9/8/19

 

Gal 5.1

“Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free

& be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.”

 

“Holiness promotes human happiness by affording a true estimate

& interpretation of the ills of life.”

– J A Wood /Sunset Echoes/

 

Heathen have been guilty of trying to “add Jesus” to their god-shelf. They already had a god for “x” & a god for “y” so adding another “God” was not a problem to them – it IS a problem to Jesus Christ. Christianity is exclusive. Christ is the only way to come to God (“…I am the way the truth & the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” Joh 14.6). Friend – – – are you trying to add Jesus to your shelf? The Lord of Heaven & earth must be your only True Loyalty; all earthly “gods” must go. – 9/8/19

 

“…Perfect love excluding hatred, perfect faith excluding unbelief,

perfect humility excluding pride.”

– J A Wood /Sunset Echoes/
