Psa 1.5

“Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,

nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.”

“Affluence has never created great faith.”
Ken Rice

Some readers are not serious enough about going to heaven – earth holds too many attractions for you. Is God going to have to dismiss your Wealth? Is He going to have to take away your Health?  Please willfully, yea, joyfully, begin to subtract yourself from the world – – – before God has to. Or worse-by-far, before you die suddenly in a car/plane/boat disaster & die un-prepared for heaven. – 11/16/20

“Lord, I thank You for letting me see the sights of NY

& Lord, I thank You that I didn’t see anything I wanted.”
– Buddy  Robinson

Some people like to push their limits. They’ll argue with a merchant. They’ll badger a realtor. They’ll squeeze the last dollar out of a deal & brag about it. LET ME WARN YOU. Heaven has no bargain basement. Heaven has no ½ price sale. God is not going to make His holy rules have an “exception clause” for you (nor me). Become so interested in God’s holiness & Heaven you’re begging Him to let you in – At. His. Price. – 11/16/20


Truth should make you whistle;

Make you happy – not bristle.

If truth makes you sad, take heed.

In your soul may be a bad weed,

Maybe even a worthless thistle.

The wolf in sheep’s clothing may be the one who most loudly claims he IS a sheep. He may be the one who most vocally shouts, “Bless G_d, I’ll do thus-n-thus, before I’ll…” A wolf in sheep’s clothing may be trying to get your church to commit to this action or that. Jesus wants us to stand with Him & His word, but I see nowhere where we’re to brag about our stand. Examine what any leader says: does it fit with the teachings of Jesus? Of Paul? Of Peter? Other NT writers? If not, do not act on it. 11/16/20

One can afford to be in a minority

but he cannot afford to be wrong.
– Wm J Bryan

Act 20.29

“For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves

enter in among you, not sparing the flock.”

You’re a Christian of average intelligence or above. You’ve vaguely heard of the Deeper Life. Have you denied it exists? Or perhaps worse, are you trying to imagine that you ARE living the Deeper Life? Trying to imagine, while at the same time keeping track of sports scores, craving to see hollywood’s movies & living aware of carnal pride, envy or hatred in your heart? – 11/16/20  

“Prayer is not to inform God of what He does not know;

it is an eye through which we see God.”

– Wilfred Grenfell, MD
