1Ki 18.36 +

1Ki 18.36

“LORD God of Abraham, Isaac & of Israel, let it be known this day that thou art God in Israel

& that I am thy servant & that I have done all these things at thy word.”

“…They call my Lord Dartmouth an enthusiast” said Geo. III

“But surely he says nothing on religion but what any Christian may & ought to say.”
– Able Stevens

Thinking adults do not wish to waste hours – Christian adults even less. If it will help – imagine the next 24 hours are your last on earth & then you’ll stand before God giving an account of how you “spent” those 24. Time passes through your hands but once. Use it wisely, Friend, use it wisely. – 5/24/21

“If you’re a good listener,

He’s a good Leader.”

– Ken Thompson

“Prayer closet” (IMO) is a term which can be used for your special praying place. It may be outdoors or in; upstairs or down. As we age I imagine several of us have a “Prayer Chair.” The position of the body (again, IMO) is not important. The position of the soul is paramount. And – – – the consistency of going to your praying place is crucial. Pray. Please Pray. – 5/28/21     


The “gates of hell” can be easily perceived

As “matching doors” where sinners are received.

But may they be one here in this spot,

One there, yea, many, leading to where it’s Hot?

Don’t think they’re all brothels or bars

(Or others of like ill-famed, evil “stars.”)

Sadly a church can be a gate to what’s below

When truth is untold; and Light’s not allow to show.

Words have at least two enemies – the second is the Image. Images have drastically increased in the last century. They were once limited to stone, wood, ivory/bone & metals. With the invention of plastics &  with the convergence of “plastics” & photography, images have been drawn, photo-shopped, & otherwise “created” until they far outweigh words. God Word(s) can mean redemption from all sin. Images save no one but they have helped damn many. – 5/29/21  

Rev 16.2

“And the first went & poured out his vial upon the earth & there fell a noisome & grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast & upon them which worshipped his image.”

“Those who believe in the ‘unknown tongue’ certainly have no right to be called ‘Pentecostal’

for the marvel & miracle of Pentecost was that every man heard them speak in his own language.”

– A L Vess

ALERT – you should NOT be reading (on regular basis) a Bible which has notes. “Why not, Bryan? Notes make it easier to understand.” (They make it easier to understand the intentions – positive or negative – of the *note maker* – – – Are you understanding what GOD wants you to understand?) One of the dangers of printed notes in Bibles is; you finish reading, & later that day think “I read it in the Bible” perhaps forgetting if it was in the Scripture or, hear it, OR, in the notes added by mere men. – 5/30/21 

“Remarriage is the final act of un-forgiveness.”

– Don Wardlaw
