Job 14.1 +

Job 14.1

“Man that is born of a woman is of few days,

& full of trouble.”

“A man may be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. In regeneration there is an impartation of life & the one who receives it is saved; in baptism with the Holy Spirit there is an impartation of power & the one who receives it is fitted for service.”

– R A Torrey

Scripture OR “science”?  Hopefully many readers are Creationists. If, however, you’re struggling to believe Scripture – OR – “science” consider the pennings of Paul (“PhD” might fit behind his name). “All flesh is not the same flesh: but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes & another of birds”(1Co 15.39). This is one of the strongest ant-evolutionary verses in the NT. “Science” expects you to believe man evolved “up through” all these. Reject backslidden Charles Darwin’s fiction – Receive truth from the most educated man (Christ was not educated-as-such) in the NT. – 10/27/20

“I mean that every man in my kingdom

shall have the right to be saved in his own way.”

– Frederick the Great

There travel among us a men who love God with all their hearts, love their families (more than relatives know) & love all fellowmen. Many, if not all of them, are not famous, & are OK with that – they place a far higher value on their relationship with God. And – – – there are men among us who’re “selling-for-more-than-they-are-worth.” They are “known” in their circles & seeking to be known in bigger circles (particularly to the left). Be wise in your heart & discern of which spirit men are. Gravitate toward the 1st group & move farther & farther away from the 2nd fellows. – 10/29/20  

BE REAL

Children play at being older,

With clothing as a “prop.”

Some old folks try looking younger,

When they’re about “to drop.”

Be content, whate’er your age;

Don’t try to act another.

Maturity, if real, is good;

It doesn’t need a cover.

The Holy Father (God) is Holy. The Holy Son (Christ) died to make us Holy. The Holy Ghost (Spirit) is Holy & wants to fill us with Holy Comfort. The Bible is Holy. Heaven is Holy. Hopefully you have a church which believes in the list of Holy Beings/things above & a pastor whose sermon theme is often Holiness &/or Be Ye Holy. If you have not such a place pray for an awakening among fellow worshippers. This dark & darkening world needs to hear about the Holiness of God. – 10/29/20

“That must needs be a worldly & criminal consideration

which makes us more anxious for our own glory than for the glory of God.” 

– John Fletcher

Isa 6.3

“And one cried unto another & said, ‘Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts

the whole earth is full of his glory.’”

I doubt it’s ever been easier (if you’re so inclined) to waste 15-20 minutes, especially if you’re online. Wasted minutes become wasted hours & wasted hrs (you already know this L) turn into wasted half & full-days. Don’t get me wrong; there’s a place for the working man to have a day off. There’s also the timely & needed vacation week(s). Allow me to encourage you to use your time wisely & not waste it, merely playing games, merely watching videos, merely running un-profitable “rabbit-trails.” God allows you x number of days – use your time for family & others & to God’s eternal glory. 10/29/20

“…Be always ready to own any fault

you have been in.”

– Wesley, quoted by R S Foster
