Pro 8.8 +

Pro 8.8

“All the words of my mouth are in righteousness;

there is nothing froward or perverse in them.”

 

25 of 47 “…Give ear; be not PROUD: for the LORD hath spoken”(Jer 13.15)

Pro 16.19 Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the PROUD.

 

“…we believe that no child of Adam is a ‘natural man’ in the Calvinian sense of the word [i.e. absolutely destitute of all saving grace] except he who has actually sinned away his day of grace.”

– John Fletcher

 

Love defined

Having never been to heaven

We can only try to imagine

The splendor upon splendor our Lord left behind,

To descend to be a Man

(For such was God’s blest plan)

The act was infinitely beyond the word “kind.”

Descend, ah, what a word

For the coming of our Lord

Come, descend to earth (raw-to-the-rind)

But come down, He grandly did

Defeating satan’s Edenic bid

A descent beyond which man can wrap his mind.

It’s doubtful He came in December

(It’s only a time to remember)

Christ came (unlike us) knowing what He’d find.

He found man lame and ill

Filled with pride and black self-will

He found him physically and spiritually blind.

But, O Friend, He had a cure

For all sinners ever endure.

Birth, Boyhood, then His plan began to unwind

Grow, Friend, beyond His birth

Beyond His ministry on earth

Seek for your life, His holy mind.

Believe His words in Revelation

Make Christ your fullest expectation.

He is Love eternal, yes, Love defined. – eab, 12/8/14

 

“It is enough to give offence when it cannot be avoided.

We should not provoke the displeasure of our hearers without necessity.”

– John Fletcher

 

A hunter learns to not talk, to sit still, & to be “all” eyes & ears. A hunter (seeker) after God can/should do the same – “Be still & know that I am God…” (Psa 46.10). Further, a hunter needs to be very conscience of wind movement. The seeker after God must learn to be aware of the moving of the Holy Spirit. – 12/8/19

 

Mat 7.7

“Ask & it shall be given you; seek & ye shall find;

knock & it shall be opened unto you:”

 

“The mere fact of GLOSSOLALIA or any other ecstatic utterance

is no evidence of the presence of the Holy Spirit.”

– F F Bruce

 

Too many people have plateau-ed in their Bible reading. 1.) You can plateau in the amount you attempted to read per-day, per-week. 2.) You can plateau in the levels linking the Eternal Word with disciplines of learning, i.e. grammar structure, historical &/or geography connections. 3.) Of equal, if not greater danger, is to plateau regarding the many points were science is in the Bible. Please, ask God to make you aware of the Bible/science associations. They are many. – 12/8/19

 

“Moloch & Rephen are planetary divinities, members of the ‘host of heaven’

…kaiwan is an Assyrian name for the planet Saturn…”
