1Th 5.18

“In every thing give thanks:

for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.”

“Nature has some perfections to show that she is the image of God

& some defects to show that she is only His image.”

– Blaise Pascal

God is the Lord of all above us (Heaven), Lord of all beside us (His earth), & Lord of all below us (hell). He was Master of these before you were born, He is now (He seems to be allowing satan a long chain but the devil IS on a chain & is doomed), & God will be Master of these 3 world’s long after we die. – 7/13/21

 “The difference between Jesus Christ & Mahomet.- Mahomet was not foretold; Jesus Christ was foretold. Mahomet slew; Jesus Christ caused His own to be slain. Mahomet forbade reading; the Apostles ordered reading.”

– Blaise Pascal
Dad/Mom be sure to play games with your children: fun & educational games. Be just as sure to play these primarily for *their* sake. As they grow show them how much delight is available in making something of value: value for them, value for the family to use/enjoy or even profitable to barter or sell. Show them a better world of values for body mind & especially soul, than mere games. Too many parents play games too long & their enthusiasm for play a child senses & thinks its a part of adulthood, when it is not. – 7/16/21


She was born of her parents in the normal way,

And gave birth to each of her own in its day.

Except, except the First – He had a special birth

Conceived by the Spirit, He was God, God come to earth.

If you have sin in your life – ask God to save you. If you have carnality – ask Him to remove it & fill you with His Spirit. If you’re saved & sanctified – ask God to give you Discernment. Some less than holy men (I fear) are preaching in supposed holiness pulpits; some less than holy women are singing in so-called holiness spots. You need to discern hypocrites & not support them with either your dollars or presence – even if they’re at a FAVORITE camp/school/church. Do not back fake “christians.” – 7/17/21   

“Hypocrisy being the most odious sort of iniquity in the sight of Him

who ‘requires truth in the inward parts.’

– John Fletcher

1Co 12.10

“To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:”

You’re a minister (pastor, evangelist, or school prof.) & you ARE compromising. Humor has become increasingly important as you speak. Stretching truth is not as awful as some think. Words never once used are popping up frequently. Your at-home-daughter appears in clothing too tight, too short, too low-necked. You DO have a favorite sports team (once you didn’t). STOP. Your sister, brother, child can too easily say, “He does ‘x’ & he’s a preacher; it must be OK.” Compromise is very often noticed. – 7/17/21

“Mr Wesley I reverence as the greatest minister I know

but would not follow Him one step farther than he follows Christ.”

– John Fletcher
