Psa 71.17-18 +

Psa 71.17-18

“O God, thou hast taught me from my youth & hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works.

“Now also when I am old & grayheaded, O God, forsake me not; until I have showed thy strength unto this generation & thy power to every one that is to come.”

 

“Christ of prophecy became the Jesus of History

 & will become the Lord of Glory.”

– Delbert               Rose, PhD

 

You know a hypocrite? Two of them? Ten? There’s both a negative & a positive here. It’s very negative for these poor guys/gals that they’re professing high but living low. But there’s a positive in this as well. “What’s that?” The good part is that you, looking on, recognize hypocrisy. ‘Cause you know falseness when you see it, you KNOW there’s a true, there IS a genuine. Now, Friend, Please become a real Christian. And – – – then you can pray for & witness to the hypocrites you know. – 9/19/20

 

“A mistake is a thing you did when you knew no better;

a sin is a thing you did when you did know better…the motive determines the morality of the act.”

– C W Ruth

 

“LAUGH” is an OT [1] word except for a balanced statement in Luke 6, “…Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh”(v21) & it’s antithesis “…Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn & weep”(v25).

“LAUGHED” is again an OT word with three exceptions, all of them totally out of place, all of them anti our Lord where the know-it-all people “…laughed Him to scorn”(Mat 9.24, Mar 5.40 & Luk 8.53).

“LAUGHING” is an OT word & “LAUGHTER” is OT except for James, “…Let your laughter be turned to mourning & [your] joy to heaviness”(Jam 4.9).

 

MIRTH?

Mirth?

It’s strictly a commodity of earth.

Heaven (with JOY) has not need of it

Hell wishes they’d never heard of it.

Mourn now sinner, that you may rejoice above

Mourn saint, FOR sinners, that they find His love

Joy cometh in the morning, for those now mourning.

Increase your prayer life. Ask the Lord if there is a country for which you should specifically pray once a week, once a day. It could be a land you once visited or one you always wanted to. It could be an ancestral root country (your grandparents or great-grands were born there). Pray God will raise up a holiness preacher from among their own men. Pray that the Lord will call a sister to become an intercessor for her own people there. “…Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest”(Luk 10.2b). – 9/19/20

 

“I sensed the powerful decentralizing effect of it on my mind & affections. It quickens me in ways not of God, defeating the purpose of prayer…”

– Jim Elliott about TV

 

Col 3.15

“…Let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body

& be ye thankful.”

 

To whom did you last say “Thank You”? I hope your wife/husband has heard you say it within the last 24. Do you say it at the store? “No. It’s their job to serve me.” Technically, it’s their job but it’s a nice gesture for you to express gratitude. Examine your heart, Friend. If you do not have a thankful spirit you ought to have & I urge you to pray until you have one. Thank your child for his/her act of love in person or their phone call. Thank your neighbor for a small but kind deed. AND, most of all Thank God for daily blessings. Thank Him everyday. Several times a day. 9/19/20

 

College is a place where peebles are polished & diamonds dimmed.”

– Robert Ingersoll, called himself an atheist.

[1] If this seems strange, please be reminded we’re New Testament Christians. We are not living (Thank the Lord) in the OT.
