Psa 15.3 +

Psa 15.3

“He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbor,

nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbor”

 

Take the preacher’s message & pour it through the “Gospel sieve.” How much has substance; Truth, maybe hard-to-swallow-truth, which is retainable & useful? How much of it was froth, stories, his personal gallivants which run through the sieve & are of little good to salvation? Stop heaping to yourselves teachers/preachers who tickle you with their stories but give only minor amounts of Gospel. – 8/20/20

 

“We love to give to those we love.”

– Beverly Carradine

 

Read Revelations again (I’ve read Rev. through 5 times in 2020). “But I don’t understand It.” (Show me a man who says he understands all of Revelation & I’ll show you a man who’s mistaken.) Let me guarantee one thing – you’ll come nearer understanding “this section or that” if you read It (& re-read It) than if you do not read It. Read It with a highlighter (make sure it doesn’t bleed through page), or pen & straight edge, or cut & past It (ch. at a time) onto a PC. Make God’s words one size/color font; your questions/comments a different size/color. Have a great time reading/studying Revelation. – 8/21/20

 

“The church was never sent to entertain men.”

– Beverly Carradine

 

Preparation

The greatest preparation a man can make

To preach the Gospel for Jesus’ sake

Is to allow the Spirit from above

To replace Adam’s nature with perfect love.

What would you do if you knew you only had 3 days to live? What letter/text would you send? What phone call would you make? Is there a house (on the other side of town, other side of state) you’d pull up to & unburden your heart? Is there a tool, a book, an animal you need to return? “But – but, he/she is the one who Started it.” That may (or may not) be the case – why don’t you be the one to End it? – 8/21/20

 

“We find in no history any human creature oppressed with such sorrow

as to sweat blood; therefore this history of Christ is wonderful.”

– Martin Luther

 

Rev 22.5

“…There shall be no night there & they need no candle, neither light of the sun;

for the Lord God giveth them light & they shall reign for ever & ever.”

 

One of the first things women do (in careful churches) who want to compromise is trim their hair. (BTW, cutting hair is the easiest thing a women can do to change her appearance – much easier than losing weight.) “My hair is longer than my husband’s – I still have ‘long’ hair.” That, sister, is an opinion. I fear it is a rather popular opinion but does the Bible agree? Allow, for your soul sake, a serious question – – – If the Holy Spirit wants you to stop, make that STOP, any/all cutting are you willing to mind Him? – 8/21/20

 

“The tragic thing today is that so many men with a Christian ancestry

are creating a pagan posterity.”

– Donald S Mackay
