1Th 4.16 & 17 +

1Th 4.16 & 17

“Rejoice evermore.

“Pray without ceasing.”

“The fact that a man is tempted is not proof that he is sinful…

unfelt trial is no trial & pain on mind…is no more sin than pain of body.”

– J A Wood

It’s natural that we (still earth-bound) remember the BD of the deceased or anniversary or death date. Having said that allow me say such aren’t important to them in heaven. Yesterday’s Bible reading included Isa 65.17. It says, “For behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind.” If the whole old earth is forgotten, I have serious doubts any soul enjoying the presence of the King of kings, Jesus Christ, will remember a day of birth on earth. – 7/1/21

“Christians begin to backslide when they feel it their duty

& see it their privilege to seek holiness & refuse to do it.”
– J A Wood

Why have a national flag in front of a church? If one feels the need to hang a flag there are county court Houses. There are state Houses. There is the nation’s capital House. And there’s even your House. The church is God’s HOUSE. God’s Kingdom is international in the best use of that word. He has no need of any flag (image) in His place of worship. Please think about removing the one at your church. Pray for your native land. Please do, faithfully, but stop doing homage to it in God Almighty’s HOUSE. – 7/13/21 

WINGS NOT REQUIRED

A pure man, with the Spirit, can do things

Which normally require a “set of wings.”

MARRIED ?

“Married” to a church?  Never, no never.

Married to Christ? Ah, thank God. Forever!

– eab, 7/16/16

You could die TODAY. “Don’t try to scare me, Bryan; I’m young (or middle aged but) in good health.” Please Sir, Ma’am take time to think about *your* death. People die at all ages & some who seemed healthy. “But, I’m not ready to die.” It’s good for you to admit this. Now – do what you know to do: confess your sins & believe Christ forgives. Make an apology for your raunchy attitude to family member or former friend. Ask you wife/husband for forgiveness. Seek a holy heart. Get ready. You CAN. – 7/16/21   

Heb 9.27

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

but after this the judgment:”

“As for death, I think but lightly of it. When I know I shall behold the amiable countenance of Christ my dear Savior, the ugly face of death does not much trouble me.”

Joyce Lewes, Fox p262 

The economy is going down. The multitudes of paper dollars makes each worth less until we may see them worthle$$. Schooling is going down. Degrees once thought of value are not earning livings for some “educated” bloks. Politicians have replaced what were once statesmen. States & the conglomerate of them is in serious trouble. And, yes, modern “churches” are turned too often into entertainment centers. Any Bright Spots? O, Yes. Praise God! Christ, the Holy Bible, & Heaven are as real as ever! – 7/16/21

The soul in flames I offer Christ, to Thee.” 

Jerome of Prague, Fox p146
