Psa 85.6 +

Psa 85.6

“Wilt thou not revive us again:

that thy people may rejoice in thee?”

 

“No man can have God’s highest thought &

be popular with his immediate generation.”

– A B Simpson

 

If you have the job of writing an obituary please do not pretend you are God & assume they went to heaven. “Well, I hope they did.” That’s good, I agree fully. “And, I’m not about to write that they went to damnation.” Again, I agree. Leave out where they went – you don’t know 100% – few if any others know 100%, so you can simply say they died. That is a fact. Obits should be honest. – 9/19/20

 

“Good books, good sermons are like sundials –

they do no good without divine light.”

– J D Smith

 

I’m aware that to some what I post seems controversial (“Hit dog hollers”). I do NOT post for that reason. I post to help people think – they may see a truth their pastor is totally ignoring (on purpose?). I post to show sin but hopefully readers will flee to Christ & seek His forgiveness. I post to expose carnality & again so souls will seek & find the fullness of the indwelling Holy Ghost. I also post occasionally on schooling, family, or items of personal interest. My thanks to all who read & my sincere THANKS to those who hit “like.” (Hitting “like” is similar to a raised hand, nod, or a smile in church – they encourage the preacher.) Face book is a “platform” I’m glad we have. (We may not always have it.) – 9/21/20

 

HE KNOWS

The God who sustains all the stars on high

And marks the sparrow in its lone flight.

That God Who knows all our troubles and woes,

And hears every cry

Alone in the midst of the night.

Is alive and knoweth right well

Our need. He knows, He knows.

– eab, Sep. 1975

 

“Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest”(Mat 9.38) &

“…Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest”(Luk 10.2) are twin passages of UPMOST importance. You & I, as sincere followers of Christ, are to obey His explicate command. Do you? New Laborers, more Laborers, younger Laborers are needed in your state & mine, in your country & mine, in your continent & mine. Please change your praying (if need be) to be in line with His Divine directions. – 9/21/20

 

“If I hate or despise any one man in the world

I hate something that God cannot hate & despise that which he loves.”

– Wm Law

 

Mat 23.8

“But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ & all ye are brethren.”

 Mat 23.10

“Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.”

 

“Doctors” are mentioned in Luke (2.46,5.17) & “doctor” in Acts (5.34). Those titled were Jewish men, not Christians. There are men who’ve burnt “midnight oil” & acquired a Doctor of Philosophy, PhD, or a Doctor of Theology, ThD, & such men may be respected for hundreds of hours spent “in” the books. There are, sadly, others being called “doctor” who’ve not labored long & hard. We need to stop calling such by high titles they don’t deserve “…honor to whom honor…” Too many men like too well to be called “Dr” seemingly unaware that ecclesiastical pride also will land a man in hell. – 9/21/20

 

I never knew happiness till I found Christ as a Savior.

Read the Bible; read the Bible. “

– Wm Wilberforce.
