Gen 6.9

“… Noah was a just man & perfect in his generations,

& Noah walked with God.”


“A sharp pen may be guided by a kind heart.”

“So-n-so is in heaven” can be dangerous words – I’d discourage you from saying them too freely. 1.) Perhaps you didn’t know them as you thought (a child, mate, parent knowing what you didn’t, may lose confidence in Christ). 2.) Or, if you convince yourself they’re Up There, you may continue doing what you shouldn’t, believing if they made it, you will too. Kipling was right when he intimates we “Go to heaven one by one.” 1/8/20


“TRUTH is spiritual substance & a LIE is spiritual shadow.

“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure…”


Php 4.8b

“…Whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, & if there be any praise, think on these things.


How horrified millions would be, if at sunrise tomorrow, all sports “balls” turned into “wooden or steel cubes” therefore making the sport to which they’re addicted impossible to play. Do you live for sports? (Who is playing whom next?) Do you really think Heaven will have race tracks or boxing rings? Hope you don’t envision Heaven having ball fields or arenas. – 1/8/20
