Psa 55.22 +

Psa 55.22

“Cast thy burden upon the Lord & he shall sustain thee:

he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.”

 

“…Seize the one truth which the parable is intended to set forth…& let the parts

of the parable that are explained be explained in harmony with this one truth.”

– Samuel Green

 

Does a preacher’s humor in the pulpit add to his popularity? With many people, yes. Do jokes/funny stories/one-liners raise the congregation’s respect for God Almighty? That is doubtful. It seems today, humor is so easily accepted in pulpits, even holiness ones. Has this lightness, this attempt at funniness, given us revival? Has it brought a seriousness about sin? When speaking to youth (in the past) I have asked God to give me some humor. Dear Reader, a Church is not a youth group. A church should be The Lighthouse of the community, the one place where “Thus Saith The Lord” is still heard! – 9/11/20

 

“…Christ[’s]…challenge was not to save ourselves but to lose ourselves;

not understand Him but to have courage to follow Him.”

– Wilfred Grenfell, MD

 

So – you married a woman 5-15 yrs younger than your wife. Your wife was the lady who bore your children, believed in you, & put up with youthful shenanigans. You’ve “moved on” with this new woman, think you love her (divorce & remarriage is almost always selfish), & are living a Make-Believe-Life. What about your poor wife? “She’s not poor. I send her $XXX.xx (or $XXXX.xx) every month.” Money, sir, is not you. Money is not your love, your attention. Money is not growing old together. You stood at an altar & promised “till death do us part” but your promise wasn’t worth much, it seems. Confess your wickedness to God. Confess your lustful heart to your wife. Seek God before you die – that could be soon. – 9/17/20

 

ONE baptism

Some people are immersed in water,

And consider their salvation done,

Ignoring there’s a baptism,

Beyond John’s – that by the Son.

 

Fire from heaven purges the inside,

Where water’s wetness can never reach,

Fiery Holy Ghost baptism –

ONE baptism that is for each.

– eab, Sept 2010

 

To have money is not a sin – It’s loving money that will damn you. There are a few souls God’s been able to trust with large amounts of cash/valuables – He knows they’ll give as He directs: a new/nearly-new vehicle to this missionary, a house to this retired evangelist, etc. & as they give away the Lord supplies the “liberal soul”(Pro 11.25) with more. WARNING – You can be poor, ah very poor but still love money. Don’t get caught in the awful trap of loving such a fleeting, inflationary thing as money. – 9/18/20

 

The way we behave toward other people

indicates what we beleive about God.’

Ken Rice

 

Mar 10.24

“…Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches

to enter into the kingdom of God!”

 

Why do some woman have no desire to be a lady? And – sadly do not even a desire to be fully woman? Why do some males never mature to be men? And even wish themselves a woman? There may be reasons I do not understand but sinners are rebels against God (have been since Eve). This desire to not be the sex (or fully the sex) they were born to be is rebellion, is a slap in the face of God. He will have the last say. Stop your defiant attitude toward Him & beg His forgiveness. – 9/18/20

 

When the Lord saved me He gave me something I never had & always wanted.

When He sanctified He took out of me something I never needed & never wanted.

Buddy  Robinson
