Gen 1.1 +

Gen 1.1

“In the beginning God

created the heaven & the earth.”

“…The holy Fletcher says, a naked faith, is a ‘faith independent of all feelings,’ in a naked promise; bringing nothing with you but a careless, distracted, tossed, hardened heart – just such a heart as you have got now.
– J A Wood

God has given us the ability to remember. To some extent, we remember what we want to. If you want to remember “x” you probably do. But we can also (again to some extent) block out of our minds that which we don’t want to remember. If the Lord has done us this favor – it is that – while on earth, it’s possible (IMO) that we’ll remember nothing of this world in the Bright Forever Above. – 1/30/21

“Faith, in order to its exercise, presupposes a certain state of the mind and affections, and without these it cannot exist – its very existence includes them; namely in the briefest terms, it supposes the knowledge of sin & sorrow for it; the knowledge that there is a Savior & a readiness to embrace Him.
– Bishop Foster

Some of you have learned you can wear your hair (male/female) in a non-Biblical way, watch hr-upon-hr of hollywood/disney trash, attend a church in which a holiness isn’t preached & you still believe you’re ready for heaven. Why? If your holy dad, if your godly mom wouldn’t approve of the way you live what makes you think Jesus does? Please Sir, Please Ma’am, awaken this side of the grave. Stop trying to believe all is well when you know even your righteous parents don’t see you as clear with God. – 2/5/21


You are more wonderful than human pen can define,

Beyond the description of the longest, well-inked line,

Majestically huge, yet IN this unworthy heart of mine.

Jesus, Precious Jesus.

I hope you’ve had acquaintance with someone (better yet 2 or 3) whom you’d consider godly. You knew they had a solid prayer life. Their conversation reflected a fair amount of Bible. You happened to see/hear enough details of a situation (which could’ve been “sticky”) but they came through with a Christ-like spirit. Between their conduct, their appearance, & their everyday talk you saw them genuine. If you’ve known such – praise the Lord & count your blessings. If you’ve not known someone like the above – – – Be One! – 2/5/21

“When sinners are careless & stupid & sinking into hell unconcerned, it is time the church should bestir themselves. It is as much the duty of the church to awake, as it is for the firemen to awake when a fire breaks out in the night in a great city.”

– Charles Finney

Heb 9.27

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die,

but after this the judgment”

You Are Going To Die. That is not written as a threat. It is not said with an attitude. And, it certainly is not typed because death is *rare.* The most common earthly event for us all is our impending death. You know you are going to die. What Dear Friend, are you doing about it? Nothing? Your negligence (IMO) pleases satan. Jesus – if you fail to come to Him – died in vain, as far as your sad soul is concerned. The only intelligent thing for you (& me) to do is to PREPARE to die. Please do – Please do. – 2/5/21

“There can be no revival when Mr. Amen &

Mr. Wet-Eyes are not found in the audience.” – Charles Finney
