1Th 4.17 +

1Th 4.17

“Then we which are alive & remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds,

to meet the Lord in the air & so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

“…not even baptism is necessary to salvation…

If it were every Quaker must be damned which I can in no wise believe.”

– John Wesley

Dear sir, dear ma’am, do you dress a certain way, wear particular jewelry, do your hair so, use “choice” words, so that you’ll fit in with peers? (That “inside” group you’ve worked hard to get inside?) Has it occurred to you that if you changed friends, if you changed peers, you wouldn’t need to look so worldly? If it hasn’t occurred to you, allow me to say there are souls who aren’t impressed by worldly appearance. They’re the holy ones, on that Narrow Way, headed to the Celestial City. Please join them. – 7/1/21

“Perfection is what God says about Himself,

attributes are what man says about God;

God is not obligated to live up to these…”
– John F Dorsey

satan does not know what is “best” for you nor do any of his henchmen, ancient writers or modern film-makers. He didn’t know what was best for himself & got kicked out-of-heaven (Luk 10.18). The devil didn’t know what was best for the millions he seduced into hell. satan loves no one (IMO) not even himself. Christ by beautiful & blessed contrast, loved you before you were born & died for you. Listen to Him. – 7/12/21  

What Will You Say

What will you tell God at the end of life,

When He asks why you rejected His Son?

Why sin and self and sports and strife

Were more pleasing to you, than His Only One?

Marriage is a mystical union which we can see (beginning-wedding, progress-family life, end-funeral). It, of course is physical. There’s another mystical union which is spiritual & therefore not as visual – it is the combining of the soul with God. He wants us to be as close with Him (yea, closer) than any man & his wife are. Earthly marriage is a “type” of the spiritual union. He wants to be in us. Is He in you? – 7/12/21

1Th 4.7

“For God hath not called us unto uncleanness

but unto holiness.”

“Self is the root, the tree, & the branches of

all the evils of our fallen state.”

– Wm Law

Christians should not get greatly involved in either the starting-up or the tearing-down of any human government. Pray for the leaders of your land but remain separate from them. Our “job” is to advance the Kingdom of God – that is the BIG picture. Nationalism is cramped & limited. Work for Christ’s Eternal Kingdom. – 7/14/21   

We must alter our lives in order to alter our hearts,

for it is impossible to live one way & pray another.”

– Wm Law
