1Ki 2.2 +

1Ki 2.2

“I go the way of all the earth: be thou strong

therefore & show thyself a man.”

“…The larger the treasure in the house

the greater the effort of the thief to break through & steal.”
– CW Ruth

All sinners may not be liars – – – but all liars are sinners. “My parents told me there were ‘little white lies.’” Sorry – they lied to you. “Schools & businesses & governments lie.” Yes, & if they do they’re sinning – flat & simple. Once a man/woman lies about “x” (small stuff) they’ll likely to lie about “X” (big stuff). Once they lie about ABC they’re more likely to lie about XYZ. “…All liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire & brimstone…”(Rev 21.8). – 5/25/21

“They [the world] say ‘We go to the theatre, play cards, dance,

go to football games, horse races etc. etc. & so do your church members.’”

– CW Ruth

satan doesn’t want you to realize the importance of words. He hates The Word. He hates both Christ, the Living Word & the Printed Words God has provided for men to read. satan is the force behind the wide, wicked use of images. satan used an image (the serpent) to hid behind when he deceived Eve & he is still using images to deceive. Please, PLEASE stop your addiction to images! – 5/26/21

Heaven’s worth  

We often speak of heaven

As a place with streets of gold,

And think that we’re describing it

In an illustration, bold,

Imagining that such a place

Must be fabulous indeed,

If earth’s most precious metal

Is mere pavement – so decreed.

Forgetting that there’s true wealth,

Which the Lord has up there,

Those precious transformed lives

Who’ve arrived there from “here.”

For if one soul is worth more

Than the combined wealth of earth,

Redeemed souls from every race

Make golden streets of little worth.

Work directly for God. If you *must* do secular work to pay bills be alert to these:

1.) Limit your desires & thereby limit your bills.

2.) satan may offer advancement in the secular job making it harder to “phase it out.”

3.) A second paycheck doesn’t encourage you to believe God & thereby build your faith.

4.) Make sure “tent making” is as un-important to you as Paul’s was to him (mentioned once). – 5/27/21

Heb 11.6

“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is &  that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

“I have never heard one give a valid reason

why the blood of Christ is not sufficient to cleanse the heart from all sin.”

– George Shaw

You’re retired. I’d guess your yard looks better than before retirement. You may now garden or have a larger plot of veggies or one with less weeds than when you were working. Let me ask about something different – has your Bible Reading increased? (It should have.)  May I probe a little further? Has your prayer life seen an increase since your retired? (It should have.) If not, please improve both today. – 5/28/21

“No church can be under the guidance of the Spirit

which fears to offend the world.” – George Shaw
