Gen 32.10 +

Gen 32.10

“I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast showed unto thy servant;…”

“There is a union with Jesus in which the soul is not so anxious to escape Hell as it is to be free from sin & in which Heaven is not so desirable as holiness.”
Samuel Brengle

Would you say you’re a thinker? Don’t claim to be, to sound “great” but strive to think. Be willing to think beyond, far beyond the trinkets media throws out. Ask Yourself Questions. Is this true? How do I know it’s true. Is this photo-shopped? Why am I being told this? Why does someone (rich guy trying to get richer, politician trying to get elected, prof trying to make a name) want me to believe this? Who started this idea? Is this Biblical? More OT or does it fit the teachings of Jesus? – 2/20/21

“Man is the supreme product in this world & the struggle with adversity & evil forces is a part of God’s plan of developing him for mansions & thrones & crowns & kingdoms in the world to come.”
Samuel Brengle

When I see backsliding & compromise (might say it’s the “same animal”) it bothers me. I’ve prayed several times, “Lord, give me nothing but Love.” I dislike seeing men/women cave-in to the world. I’m sorry for their shortsightedness. What are they thinking? ARE they thinking? Are they following their kids into sinful life-styles? Are they blinded to how FINAL death is? Such sliding back tries me & I have to ask God to give me Love, nothing but Love for such needy souls. – 2/23/21    


Some hours ago the message came

A tiding rimmed in black

Death has from our presence taken

Taken to never more give back

A brother (family – in Christ – is the same)

And we feel, (Shall I say it?) forsaken.

Some hours ago the message came

A drear tiding “trimmed in black”

The scythe of death has laid another

Found our brother in its track

Slain him, laid him.  He’ll not be back.

Some hours ago the message came

The solemn message of the dead

These are always given and received with dread

Sad the duty to deliver, sadder yet to stand and take.

Someone else has gone in sleep, we are still awake.

Some hours ago the dreary tiding

Of death and distance, life and resistance

Came to sadden home and heart

Our brother has been taken, He did not awaken

Death has forced us apart.

Death that hideous, unwanted scourge

Smirk invader, undaunted persuader

Has plunged us into the dark

Stolen another husband, father, brother

Death is brazen, final, cold, stark

But, Death listen!  Listen!

You have an empty shell.  He is now well!

No more will sorrow or pain

Cause our brother sleepless nights

O’er trials, problems or slights

He’s triumphant–these are slain

Allow me to say you should have a Biblical Sin List to which you can readily turn. I read one just this AM (Gal 5.19b – 21a). There are at least 2 reasons to review such on occasion: 1.) To make sure one sin (or more) have not snuck into your life. BTW, if these are part of your life YOU will have no part of the Coming Kingdom of God. That’s Serious! 2.) Reviewing such a list can be a great cause for rejoicing – you no longer are bound by these wicked items. Amen! Praise the Lord! – 2/23/21

that we are capable of in this life.”

Joh 1.1

“In the beginning was the Word,

the Word was with God & the Word was God.”

“Science” BOLDLY attacks the Bible. The Bible says God created the earth – “science” says it was “spun-off” from some “big-bang” explosion. The Bible says God did created in 6 days – they use imaginative millions/billions of years. (And say these numbers “with a straight face” like they know.)  Evilution is only a part of the huge deception. The Bible makes it clear “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) – man’s little theory pretends all animals came from a common ancestor. Do not worship “science.” – 2/24/21

“He will not therefore look at the lives of Christians to learn how he ought to spend his estate but he will look into the Scriptures and make every doctrine parable precept or instruction that relates to rich men a law to himself in the use of his estate.”
