Psa 1.1 +

Psa 1.1

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly,

nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

 

We will all meet God. Many so called important people we’ll never meet (And, we’ll “live” without that J.) But every man meets God at least once during life (“…The true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world” Joh 1.9) & once at the end of life. The first time we meet God, none of us are ready – the second time we all can be ready (though, sadly, many will refuse to be ready). – 8/1/20

 

“Never say “Will you accept Christ as Lord?”

but “When will you accept Christ as Lord?”

– Vance Havner

 

Once only the rich could afford to hire actors to play for them or use curtains/smoke/incense to “create” illusions. Only the rich were able to *be entertained by being deceived.* Since the invention of cameras & particularly the movie camera TV & its media “siblings,” the poor can see, yea “live for their dose” of delusion. Mankind has never lived in an age when more people are fooled by & feeding on fantasy. If you name the Name of Christ you can be delivered from theworld of make-believe & ought to be, as a witness to others. Only God can deliver from the power of delusion But. He. Can. – 8/1/20

 

“They tell us now that Isaac Watts did not speak the idiom of today.

Well, neither did Shakespeare, but they’re still studying him.”

– Vance Havner

 

TRAVEL

Once you wanted to go here & there

Liked the train, the plane, the boat

Wanted to see that island pair

To travel to mountain’s away, remote

And did as God lead & funds appeared.

 

Now the wanderlust as waned

The desire to see the actual sight is down

You’ll probably not now see “the Dane”

Nor visit that Rhine straddling town

Age has come (unbidden) but “as feared.”

 

So – how do you travel, cause to share

Without ticket, baggage or hype?

The best way now is via prayer

Daytime or if you’re the night type

Heaven’s airwaves remain all cleared.

 

Don’t need visa or punched passport

To visit a land in intercessory prayer

Desert or a mountain or a seaport

Or other scenes with days of intermission

Prayer “travel” costs less & is God “cheered.”

– eab, 8/3/18

 

A gun can separate you from all your gold.

A gun can *never* separate you from God. – 8/1/20

 

“No, ‘twas a spectre, an evil spirit assuming his form.

What proves this is that God, by the laws of Moses had forbidden man to question the dead.”

– Martin Luther

 

Mar 8.38

“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me & of my words in this adulterous & sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.”

 

Jesus calls no man to die for a piece of land, document of history, some ideology, or definition of “liberty.” Please, Christian friend, do NOT “work your soul into a frenzy” (or allow parent or pastor) to get you so worked-up that you die for Anything, Anyone other than CHRIST & His Word (“Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me & of my words in this adulterous & sinful generation…” Mar 8.38). Remember the majority of God’s people were killed (became martyrs) rather than killing others. – 8/3/20

 

“We who formerly delighted in fornication now strive for purity.

We who used magical arts have dedicated ourselves to the good & eternal God…”

– Justin Martyr
