1Ti 1.17 +

1Ti 1.17

“Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God

 be honor & glory for ever & ever. Amen.”

“Seeking the applause of men cherishes & gratifies human depravity

 at the expense of divine displeasure.  It is gross idolatry.

J A Wood

You are raising your child for one of two Eternities: One is so Bright & Joyful man can’t grasp its splendor – forever more. The other is so dark & dismal that our worse nightmare pales in comparison & – it also is forever. Even if YOU don’t want to pay the price of living right, you ought to do so, so you can lead Johnny/Suzie toward an everlastingly Blissful Heaven. Please Dad, Please Mom, Change. – 7/26/21

“Christians are to reform the world

not be deformed by it.

J A Wood

Your – what? Your pastor (or his wife), your church leader (or wife) said his “favorite movie” is…? A preacher (or church leader) brazenly stating his favorite hollywood or disney film? – that friend, is unacceptable to me – & I hope it is to you. It’s beyond my imagination that H Robb French, Steve Herron or L D Wilcox would’ve said such. A new convert might admit (with embarrassment) what his USED to be. A pure man of God will have no favorite in the trash pile of the world. – 7/30/21     


God is One, yet goodly, gladly Three.

His goodness exceeds: deserves a capital “G.”

His actions give “goodness” definition.

His goodness provides needed Redemption.

Thank you Lord, for Your goodness to me.

Balance – is needed to ride a bicycle – is needed to get a man to heaven. How satan wants us to get off balance & wreck. Have a hobby? Don’t go overboard. Like to hunt? Keep a balance. Collect “a” or “b”? How satan’d like you to “get into your collection” until you miss 1.) private time with God, 2.) fail to give to the cause God wants, 3.) “eat, sleep, drink” an earthy passion & lose your soul. Keep a hobby in its place or if need be drop it, when you see it’s weakening your walk with God. Amen? – 7/30/21

“You can go to a seminary and learn how to preach sermons

but you will have to go to God to get messages.

Oswald J Smith

2Ti 4.10

“For Demas hath forsaken me,

having loved this present world…”

Some have tried to imagine two or more yrs of Greek or Hebrew qualifies them (along with their buddies Westcott & Hort) to ignore the scholarly labors of 47 men fresh from the Reformation, who respected the Words of God & devoted 4 yrs producing the Classic of all English Bibles. Such imagination borders on ignorance (perhaps the nicest way to say it) but may include arrogance. This refusal of the Authorized Version can also lead to damnation. Please, friend, come back to the Classic. – 7/31/21

The Refiner is never far from the mouth of the furnace

when His gold is in the fire.”

Charles Spurgeon
