Psa 91.1 +

Psa 91.1

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High

shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

 

“…Pride…is the mother of all heresies…”

– Martin Luther

 

Before you start to read your Bible each day bow your head. Ask the Almighty Author to meet with you. Ask Him to help you see what He wants you to see TODAY. (BTW, you are the one who must make your mind, *mind* & not wander off “to fix the hen house” while your eyes are sliding over Mat 5 or other passage.) Look for new truth. Connect what you reading with what you read yesterday. – 9/15/20

 

“Adam had more children than the three that are mentioned…

doubtless had many sons & daughters, full 200, I am persuaded.”

– Martin Luther

 

You are going to die. You are only going to die once. Your death may be the result of “natural causes” disease, accident, a plague. The devil would like to agitate you, to get you so broiling over that your soul has no peace at death & therefore plunges into hell. God, by holy contrast, died so you can die right. So whether in War or Peace your soul is at rest in Christ & will rise to the bliss of heaven forever. Do nothing to make your soul aggravated. Join no group which is pushing for war (civil or otherwise). Do not become so concerned about your *stuff* that you’ll die defending them – it are not worth you being up-set. Be ready to drop all earthly possessions that you may rise to true possessions in the skies. – 9/17/20

 

Threescore & Ten

When you near three score and ten,

And think life is about to end –

No, this is just the earthly part,

Cheer up. Obey. Take heart.

Eternal Life, saint, is around the bend.

– eab, 9/23/14

 

Human life has become less valuable in the last 100 yrs or so. Millions have been killed by American, British, French, German, Italian, Russian or other guns. Millions more have been killed in “legal” abortions. (Please stop drawing a line between war & the war on babies – it is an artificial line.) You & I are human or less-than-human as we accept or abhor this loss of human life. Parallel? Our spiritual life is up or down as we view the backsliding around us. Are you, am I praying, weeping in private, in public services, over the spiritual deadness we see & feel around us? – 9/19/20

 

“Holiness will peal paint, melt jewelry,

lengthen skirts & grow hair.”

– J D Stafford

 

Rev 1.8

“I am Alpha & Omega, the beginning & the ending, saith the Lord,

which is, & which was, & which is to come, the Almighty.”

 

The devil will use anything he can (& I mean ANYTHING) to distract you from being saved from ALL sin & sanctified holy. “Wine, women, & song” (line that is decades old), money, but also religion with a wagon-load of rites & rituals. Hobbies, collections, sports (team or individual), reading even historical research can all distract (& therefore side-track) you from the business of your personal salvation. – 9/22/20

 

Interest in Christian missions in pagan lands & city slum

 is a fair guage of the spirituality of an individual & of a church.”

– Daniel Steele
