2Co 5.10 +

2Co 5.10

“For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”


“Holiness means pure thoughts, pure intentions, pure motives, pure words, pure actions.

It is the purity of heaven brought down to earth…exhibited in a pure life.”

– J M Pike


It takes a MAN to leave a baptist, catholic, lutheran, methodist, presbyterian or tongues church & become a holiness man. On the reverse, it takes a man, who no longer believes (maybe, sadly, never has believed) in the way of true holiness, to stop pastoring a holiness church. Please, sir, if your life does not reflect a separation from the world, if your messages do not lift up the true experience of Pentecost, if you doubt the whole concept of being holy (while still on earth) please either get along with God & get reclaimed or, hear it, OR, be MAN enough to resign your holiness church. You’re being a hindrance. – 6/3/20


“Spirituality is not how far we are from the world

but how close we are to God.”

– James Plank, 2/3/00


Rev 13.18 “Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; & his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.”

In Arabic it could be 666. It could also be 600606. If each score were shown it could be 6002020206.

[Reminder: Roman num.: 1=I, 5=V, 10=X, 50=L, 100=C, 500=D, 1000=M]

In Roman numerals it could be CCCCCCXXXXXXIIIIII (or six 100s, six 10s, six 1s.)

It would more likely appear DCLXVI or 500+100, 50+10, 5+1 Or it could be in another language. 6/3/20



God gladly made man with an ability to speak.

He made him so he could create sound

And mobile-faced so he could smile or frown.

I’m happy God didn’t make man mute;

A grunting or even a silent “brute.”

How different to have been thus bleak.

Followers of Christ USED to believe there was Power in Prayer. And, congregations & pastors prayed. Have we forgotten this? Or are we about to forget it? Are we being influenced (more than we want to admit) by radio & internet news until we’re acting more like our sinner neighbors than the saints of old. Amen? Ouch? Pray. Pray & believe. – 6/4/20


“To believe the promise of Jesus that His followers shall possess the earth & at the same time to face our enemies unarmed & defenseless preferring to incur injustice rather than to do wrong ourselves, is indeed the narrow way.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer


Rom 8.6

“For to be carnally minded is death; but

to be spiritually minded is life & peace.”


About what do you pray? The term “pray for…” first occurs (in NT) as, “…Pray for them which despitefully use you & persecute you”(Mat 5.44). Luke (6.28) repeats the idea. (He does not here say Pray for country – He does not here say Pray for church.) We’re not to be “mad at them” not to “chide them” definitely not to “kill them” – we are to “pray for them.” How ya’ doing? – 6/4/20


“The fruit of the Spirit is a gift of God

& only He can produce it.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer
