Exo 3.14 +

Exo 3.14

“…God said…‘I AM THAT I AM’ and he said,

Thus shalt thou say…‘I AM hath sent me unto you’”


“As long as carnality remains in the human heart,

there are going to be outcroppings of sin.”

– Millard  Downing


Are you memorizing Scripture? It’s great to know a verse here & a verse there. If you’re also learning their references; that’s better. Chapter & verse divisions were added later, therefore are not inspired but they help us locate the nugget of truth faster. And help us find it in a strange Bible (in our familiar one it was “upper-right on the left page,” J). How you connect this truth with its ch. & verse will widely vary but find a system that works for you And. Work. Your. System. 1/13/20


“If revival is all that we ever seek

then we will always be in need of one. Revival then Harvest

– John F Dorsey



Thank you Lord for the Night:

To slow down and sleep,

To the home-fires keep

With Ewe and “little sheep.”


Thank you Lord for the Morn:

To throw-back, make the sheet

For breakfast to eat,

For shoes for the feet.


Thank you Lord for the Noon:

For strength to work till then

For work of hammer or pen,

For corn gathered in the bin.


Thank you Lord for the “Tardes”

For warmth in winter’s sun,

For “game” from rod and gun,

For labor almost run.


Thank you Lord for the Even

For the ceasing to roam,

For the walk toward home,

For the evening’s gloam.


And if there is a time I’ve forgotten,

Please don’t think me “rotten,”

‘Cause I love life, and love all Your days

Broken up in hourly ways – all Praise!

“Methodists & Baptists may not agree, but they agree

 that the Bible is true, whatever it says.”

– Bob Jones, Sr. – quoted by Al Janey


Do some “adults” think “Toy” is another way to spell “Joy”? The amount of $ & hours spent by “grown-ups” on Their toys (boats, four-wheelers, snow-machines, off-road 4x4s, gliders etc.) would be absolutely staggering. I don’t begrudge kids play, nor do I begrudge youth a limited degree of clean recreation but too many evangelicals & too many holiness adults are spending too much on “toys” both in time & in “twentie$.” Don’t wait till on your death bed to say “I wasted too much on this world.” – 1/18/20


Joh 18.36 *Christ said*

“My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world,

THEN would my servants fight… [ emphasis added ]


Which is first with you? the cause of Christ? the cause of America? Both can NOT be first! Christ doesn’t want you to kill for Him; satan wants you kill; it’s a way to get souls to hell. Yes, I know, some would hype you into fighting for your rights, saying, “It’s the American thing to do.” Christ: “…Love your enemies…” (Mat 5.44). Paul: “For though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh”(2Co 10.3). Please Friend, obey Jesus; not some well-meaning (he thinks) but carnal sinner. America will pass; Christ is forever! -1/19/20


“…The world by professing Christianity is so far from being a less dangerous enemy than it was before. It has by its favors, destroyed more Christians than ever it did by the most violent persecution.”

– Wm. Law (1686 – 1761)
