Luk 10.18 +

Luk 10.18

“And he [Christ] said unto them,

“I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.


“…Ardent love cannot but be zealously obedient.”

– John Fletcher /Works I/


Become more Aware of the importance of Up & Down.

Jesus was Up – He came Down

Jesus went back Up – He comes Down again

The devil was Up – he fell (forced out) Down

The devil is going further Down

We never were Up – Christ came to prepare us to go Up

We weren’t made to go Down – but will go down if sinning

The devil knows we can go UP, knows he can’t, & is doing everything he can to stop us. – 10/22/19


“So preach that those who do not fall out with their sins

 may fall out with thee.”

– Luther, quoted by John Fletcher /Works I/



Make it your firm conviction

To not live in the world of fiction.

Search Truth, cherish, love her;

Never put a fable above her.

Pursue her as one does an addiction.

“The early church knew nothing of this [rituals, ceremony, candles, incense,

prayer stations, & images] idolatrous & sense-oriented worship.”

– T A McMahon


You dad lived separated from the world (or mother/other relative) & you had confidence in his testimony. By contrast, you chose to dress similar to the world, go (to some extent) where the world goes, & now look lightly on some sins. Do you expect to go to heaven? Does God have a double standard? It took Obedience to the Bible for dad – it’ll take Obedience to the Bible for you. Your dad (other relative) believed the promises of God you must too. If you expect to see the saints in Glory, you’ll have to live like one. Amen? Ouch? -10/24/19


Luk 16.23

“And in hell he [“certain rich man”] lift up his eyes,

being in torments…”


People have complimentary biographies written about them. The others have nice-sounding, detailed obituaries read at memorial services. These are earthy. The bio or obit mean absolutely nothing to the deceased. If he went down (& is aware of such) it may (IMO) add to his torture. If he went up but (& is aware) he may (IMO) wish more was said about his Savior & His holy leadership than about him. – 10/19/19


 “Communism, socialism, fascism, nazism, all destroy

when any compromises are made with their systems.”

– Carl McIntire
