1Ti 3.7 +

1Ti 3.7

“Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without;

lest he fall into reproach & the snare of the devil.”

The Middle Ages featured ‘mystery plays’…in theaters or public squares.

The Reformation replaced theatrics with biblical exposition.”

– John A Bjorlik

Young lady, only God knows who you should marry. Do not be fooled by the guys size, his strength, his ability to make money. Don’t be swayed by his thoughtfulness & roses. (It could appear the “game of catching” a girl – making sure she doesn’t marry the “competition” can End at the altar – some wives are “taken for granted.”) You’ve got the feeling (& kind-a-wish) he’s going to ask you to marry him. Pray like you’ve not prayed about anything except your soul. You dare not wed until God says yes. Please. – 8/7/21  

The Scripture…warns about psychotherapy: being spoiled through ‘Philosophy & vain deceit,after the traditions of men,after the rudiments of the world’ which ruin beleivers by taking away their dependence on Christ & God’s Word.
– Bobgans & Mahan

One Being can save you from a sorrowful marriage. You spell His Name G. O. D. That girl may look like a dream. Her mother may like you. Her dad may think you “tops.” And your folks may like her too. She may be able to play x instrument & sing in church. She may give a spiritual testimony. Do not ask her to marry you until you have clarity from God. Marriage is for life. This is the BIGGEST decision of your life now (assuming you’re already redeemed & Spirit filled). Pray until you are assured of God’s will. – 8/7/21  


There’s a horrid blight call pride

(Which the unsaved delight to show).

With the unsanctified it’s still inside

Suppressed, because they now know

It’s so unlike their Savior & Lord

They’re seeking to get it off-board.

The Holy Ghost specializes in taking it out

Along with carnal anger, jealousy & hate

And self-will with it’s hidden snarl & pout

All related to Adam biting satan’s bait.

With these all gone the heart is pure

And able to more easily temptations endure.

“Not everything the left-wing church in town does is wrong;” No, it’s not wrong to ring the bell at service time, not wrong to have a parking lot. But if that leftish church is not seeing souls truly converted (few-if-any are) please, evangelical/holiness pastor do not, repeat Do Not copy their VBS theme a yr or two later, nor bring in the same singers for a youth emphasis. Your church, Brother, needs Holy Ghost power. He’ll draw not just souls in, He will draw in the souls ready to quite sin. – 8/9/21 

Jas 5.16

“Confess your faults one to another & pray one for another, that ye may be healed.

The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

“…He [Christ] will pronounce the most terrible, yet tearful, maledictions against the hypocritical formalist & the lukewarm professor who are the friends of the world & consequently the enemies of God.”

Samuel Brengle 

May I urge you to get alone with God? Ask God for a deeper desire for One-on-one fellowship with Him. Your country needs a Holy Ghost awakening. (Do you see it? Do you see it enough to pray more?) Your village needs to hear God’s holy anger against sin. (Hear it again – – – or perhaps your town has never had a REVIVAL.) Your group of fellow christians & your family need to feel the impending wrath of God. Please slow down (or drop) a shallow, time-wasting hobby & pray or PRAY MORE. – 8/9/21     

Be sure of this, it is not Jesus that is torturing you with thoughts of the future for He has commanded you to ‘take no thought of the morrow’…but when you come up to the point of obedience, be true, if it takes your life.” 

Samuel Brengle
