1Co 13.2

1Co 13.2

“…Though I have the gift of prophecy & understand all mysteries & all knowledge &

though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains & have not charity, I am nothing.”

 

“Love is without hate, faith is without doubt,

humility is without pride, meekness is without anger.”

– Wm McDonald

 

START – This very day depending on God’s Word. If you think you’re already doing that, amend your reading/studying habits to rely on It more. It is true. When we understand It – It is true. When we don’t understand It – It is true. Nothing is as reliable as the Bible. In this age of dependence on media we’re surrounded by a swirl of lies & lies will drown us, if we don’t stand on the Rock of Truth, God’s Word. -5/19/20

 

“Our greatest responsibility besides prayer

is in study.”

– Richard Miles

 

GOD OR GOLD

You will serve God or you will serve gold.

Make your contrary assertions ever so bold,

And claim the truth has not been told.

But the love of money is the root of all evil,

The love of gold leads directly to the devil.

Gold can be shaped in various known forms,

It can appear average or far from the norms,

One is pulled to the sciences, another to the arts,

One is lulled to amalgamations, one leaves things in parts,

One seeks gold directly, another seems it to “hate,”

But gold’s the one attraction of sinners, early or late,

And – – – you will serve God or you will serve gold.

I’m glad I don’t’ see, after the death of Mr X or Mrs Q, people saying “I’m sure he’s burning in hell now” nor “Hell’s gained another prisoner” etc. We shouldn’t wish anyone eternal torment nor assign a soul to go below. “Bryan, why are you saying this?” Because, Friend, we too freely assume Mr Y or Mrs R are in heaven. Going to heaven is Very Special! Only those who’ve repented & obtained a holy heart are admitted. Going to church won’t “Get your in.” Doing good deeds won’t “Get you in.” Be more concerned about being ready yourself, than assuming a deceased friend is in heaven. – 5/21/20

 

“…Modernists…are…happy to talk about Jesus but they do not want the Jesus who denounced

the Pharisees & told them they were of their father the devil.”

Luk 16.23

“And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, &

 seeth Abraham afar off & Lazarus in his bosom.”

 

At times I’ve posted a quote by a man with an earned PhD. He spent hour upon hour, for yrs in serious study at a recognized collegiate institution or seminary & produced a required paper or book. I respect his dedication & effort. I’ve known several men who’ve been given an honorary degree, some of whom did creditable but non-academic work & some who were given it as a favor. Though I may agree they should receive honor, often their accomplishments didn’t equal the strain of an earned doctorate & seldom, if ever, should they be called “Dr.” The desire to be called “Dr.” is a dangerous – 5/19/20

 

“Fellowship is precious in the Lord.

He alone gives it. It is an unspeakable gift.”
