Job 1.1 +

Job 1.1

“There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job;

& that man was perfect & upright & one that feared God & eschewed evil.”

“…True zeal makes a person infinitely tender & patient toward the sinner,

while absolutely uncompromising with his sin.”

– Samuel Brengle 

Young lady – that guy who took you out to eat last night – you need to find out if he’s married. Here, I do not mean another woman. Watch closely. Is he “married” to his fast car?  Is he “married” to a powerful truck? Or is he “married” to his job (some men are very attached to their work).  Or he could be “married” to perfectionism – listen to his talk – does anything *fully* meet his approval? (You may not either.) One more? OK. If his mother still lives & they’re too close, he may be a “moma’s boy.” – 10/24/20

“It takes no more time to ask a man about his soul than to ask about his health; but it will require more love, & more prayer, & holy tact, & soul-wakefulness to do it with profit…”

– Samuel Brengle  

Until you acknowledge that “sports” are gods, you’ll keep on attending to their “temples” called “courts” “diamonds” “fields” “arenas.” Arenas? That has a familiar sound, doesn’t it? Arenas, that’s where, at one time, christians were killed “for sport,” the entertainment of the heathen. I’m not saying that a “pickup game” at a picnic is wrong, however I’m seeing pics taken were tickets are sold & professionals were paid. – 10/24/20


A long time before the source,

There was the source,

               Divine Calm.        

Which is YOUR prime source?

STOP TREND. A young lady may have a job when she meets her boyfriend. She may have a job when he (finally J) gets around to asking “for her hand.” But before she agrees (or they announce their engagement) they need to discuss how long she’s going to work outside the home. If/when God blesses their home with a papoose, it’s time for her to be a full-time mommy (or do only a part-time job within the house). With due respect (& I mean that) there are TOO many pastor’s wives, TOO many parishioner’s wives working full-time. They’re depending on her salary & homes are suffering. Stop the trend. – 10/25/20 

“…A father must live in such personal regard to God’s authority & integrity

…to be held in esteem by his children.” 

– H L Ferguson

Tit 2.5

“To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands,

that the word of God be not blasphemed.”

Some modern ways have tended to make us soft in spiritual things. When you heat with electricity or gas you set the dial or turn up the thermostat & go all day without thinking about being warm. In another era, or as some of us still heat with wood, you have to “feed” the fire or it goes out. Friend, if you’re going to keep hot in your soul you are going to have to pay attention to the fire. And – – – for fire to burn you need the draft of the Holy Spirit. Are you spiritually warm or do you think it’s all automatic? It is not. – 10/25/20 

“If revival is being withheld from us it is because some idol remains still enthroned; because we still insist in placing our reliance in human schemes; because we still refuse to face the unchangeable truth that It is not by might, but by My Spirit.”

– Jonathan Goforth
