Psa 14.1a +

Psa 14.1a

“The fool hath said in his heart, ‘There is no God’…

 

“If God be for us

everyone else might as well be.”

– Charles Bennington

 

The church should be the place on earth that’s least like earth. It should not be an extension of the world’s conversations nor politics. Church shouldn’t be more of the world’s moving lights nor “music.” O, how we all need God’s HOUSE to that, ALL that, & by His grace ONLY that. Worship Him! – 8/11/20

 

When asked the secret of his success said,

“I never say ‘No’ to God”

– Wm Booth  

 

A minister, sadly, can “preach” about x, y & z, so you don’t notice he never “preaches” q or j. It can be 100% on purpose or, maybe less, but it works too easily on a non-thinking, non-discerning congregation.

A government (local, state, national) can talk about x, y & z (& get the media to cover them) until you don’t notice you’re losing q or j. Purposefully? Too often. Maybe a new politician you trust is doing it but it’s sadly working. Pray for country? Yes but – But pray more for souls to flee sin & Hell. – 8/14/20

 

God – THE ONE

The ONE that precedes all the beginnings that we know

The ONE that exceeds all the endings that show

The ONE Who is wider than the widest width of space

The ONE Who is higher than the Apex of the place

The ONE Who is deeper than the Nader itself

The ONE Who includes “lock, stock, barrel” plus shelf

The ONE Who pictures all man’s time at a glance

The ONE Who never has anything happen “by chance”

And the ONE more holy than His own Holy of Holies.

– eab, 8/10/10

 

No one enjoys hearing their “life-style” condemned. Especially when those around (as a pastor/evangelist names sins) *know* they cheat (in money or mate), get mad, lie, profane the Lord’s Day, waste money on sports, etc. Please, Friend, forsake sin your while you may. If you don’t have yours sins forgive they’ll all be listed (if I understand Scripture) at the Great White Throne Judgment. Peers will then know what you may now have hidden – & – fearsomely, it will be too late to be forgiven. – 8/18/20

 

Conscience in most men,

is but the anticipation of the opinions of others.”

Jeremy Taylor (1613 – 1667)

 

Rev 20.13

“…The sea gave up the dead which were in it & death & hell delivered up the dead

which were in them & they were judged every man according to their works.

 

No two people in the Bible are alike. As far as I’ve read, no two miracles of the Bible are alike. God, as evidenced by the above, by every leaf on every tree, & the list could go on, loves individuals. God created personalities. The Father made billions of *different* men. Learn to appreciate men unlike you. Ask God to help you love the obviously unique. Then, I say this carefully but I say it, don’t be afraid to be dissimilar from your peers. God loves individuality; He created it, He uses it. Love God & love people but don’t allow satan (or well-meaning folks) press you into their mold. – 8/18/20

 

God hath given to man a short time here upon earth,

& yet upon this short time eternity depends.

Jeremy Taylor (1613 – 1667)
