Gen 1.3 +

Gen 1.3

“And God said, ‘Let there be light’

and there was light.”


One of the worst enemies of any marriage is selfishness. A marriage can survive it but only if one partner has the bigness to overlook this enemy & counter-act this enemy with lots of love. The christian has a “type of marriage” with Christ. He’s never selfish. After the christian is filled with the Holy Spirit, he is not selfish (though still very human). The most likely time for your relationship with Christ to suffer is before you’re sanctified. (This is one of the reasons satan fights holiness of heart.) – 1/2/2020

Deserve Heaven

If you think you deserve heaven – You don’t.

If you think you’ll make it on your own – You won’t.

No one rises high above

Who’s not filled with perfect love.

“Prayer is the most secret intercourse of the soul with God…

What? You hold in your hand the very Words of God? What? You have at your favorite chair, swing, kitchen table The Book inspired by the Eternal Spirit & you ignore such Treasure? You’re not memorizing from it, not reading it daily with great pleasure? Something is wrong with this picture. – 1/2/20


Mat 3.2

“If you are willing to listen, God can get you to a clean heart

& get you to heaven.”

– Ken Thompson


There on that knoll above the river, or there in that stand of old trees are upright stones. Stones, carved or crude, marking the final resting place of a fellow human you never knew. They are “known” only to us by a lifeless stone – yet friend, those men, those women are very alive: on the bright hills of heaven or in the hot caverns of dark damnation.

Prepare to Meet they God! 1/2/20


“The west is interested in independence.

If there’s anything sin takes away from us it’s true independence.”
