Job 1.21 +

Job 1.21

“…The LORD gave & the LORD hath taken away;

blessed be the name of the LORD.”


There are those who WANT to be famous – are so hungry for fame that they don’t care what they have to do to get it. They just want to be “well known.” The same is true with many regarding money. They wish to be RICH & sadly, will do most anything (legal or illegal) to have a pile of cash. Friend – listen – fame & fortune both end at the grave. Flee from the carnal desires of popularity & plenty. – 7/18/20


“Perfect love does not imply perfect knowledge;

but perfect humility & perfect readiness to receive instruction.”

– John Fletcher


Wives – are you dressing & acting as modestly as your husband wants you to? As modestly as his title (secular or christian service) suggests his wife should? You can help him have a greater influence for God in the family, church, or village as you wear proper clothing & are careful in conduct OR you can lessen his impact by less than saintly attire & actions. God’s watching – – – & so are sinful men. – 7/18/20


“To say ‘Tomorrow I will make myself a child of God’

is as absurd…as it would be in a woman to say ‘Tomorrow I will conceive alone.’”

– John Fletcher



Need wisdom today, need wisdom tomorrow

Need wisdom in joy, need wisdom in sorrow

Need wisdom when single, need wisdom when wed

Need for the body, need wisdom for the head

Wisdom when young, hormones flowing

Wisdom when gray or head balding

Whatever the stage or age we are in

Lord, grant us your wisdom now, within.

Take the Bible literally (unless there’s great reason to see It figuratively). John from Patmos (Rev 13.17) told us a day’s coming when man won’t be able to “buy or sell” unless he’s in league with the beast. Take that literally!!! Does it make sense that there’ll be “baby” steps leading to this drastic day? You may be seeing steps. Pray about what you do (or do not). Your congregation may come down on the wrong side. Your best friend may go the opposite direction. But you can find & DO His will. O please do! – 7/19/20


“The Shunammite woman didn’t say ‘I perceive that this is a famous man of God

or popular or brilliant or successful man of God.’ She said a ‘holy’ man of God.”

– Vance Havner


Rev 13.17

“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark

 or the name of the beast or the number of his name.”


The late, great, Steve D Herron, founder of Hobe Sound Bible College (I highly respected him), said, “The antichrist is not going to say he’s the antichrist.” There may well be an orchestration of leading religions, international powers, “news,” & holograms to make you think Christ has come, when in reality, it’ll be the antichrist. True followers of Christ will NOT be fooled but counterfeit “christians” may accept satan’s antichrist as “christ” & gladly take his mark. Pray Friend & do all you know NOW to do to be right. Make that restitution, write that apology. – 7/19/20


“…We must unlearn what the spirit of the world has taught us…

yet [the] greater part of Christians live & die slaves to the customs & temper of the world.”

– Wm Law
