2 Ti 3.5 +

2 Ti 3.5

“Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof:

from such turn away.”

“Don’t ever come to church without coming as though it were the first time, as though it could be the best time, & as though it could be the last time.”

– Vance Havner

Are you a Citizen of Heaven or citizen of an earthy land? “I’m both.” Jesus said, “No man can serve two masters for either he will hate the one & love the other or else he will hold to the one & despise the other…”(Mat 6.24). This pungent v. is found between Mat 6.19-20 “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth…But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven…) AND v33 “…Seek ye first the kingdom of God & his righteousness… Don’t try to belong to 2 kingdoms. Impossible. Jesus is the Final Authority! – 8/16/21

“It is not our business to make the message acceptable, but to make it available.

We are not to see that they like it, but that they get it.”

– Vance Havner

He kills you – you go to heaven. You’re safe. He can later be saved & also go to heaven. Praise the Lord.

You kill him – he goes to hell. He’s lost FOREVER. If you killed in hate, you’ll join him, if not forgiven. 

This seems true whether domestic violence, home invader, or national crisis between sinners & Saints.

If this is too simple may God help me to see. If this is how it is MAY God help you see. Think – 8/16/21


There’s always a reason why a man tells a lie.

Why he allows a falsehood to cross his lip,

Why he wanted to deceive his fellow man

Why truth was hidden in a crack a deep dip.

That reason, friend, is not good. Never.

Lying (un-forgiven) damns a soul for-ever.

I’ve never seen a time in which so many women wear pants (what for centuries was western man’s clothing). Nor have I seen a time when so many males wear stuff leaning toward the feminine. Guys appear in public in “outfits” their granddads would NEVER have worn. What’s happened to us? “Is it all a sin, Bryan?” Some stuff I see guys wear MAY not be sinful but it seems soft, “smacks” of womanhood, sets a poor example for their sons. Women please come back to be a lady. Men – Man up. – 8/17/21    

“The books of Moses are chiefly historical;

the epistles of St. Paul chiefly doctrinal.”

– John Fletcher

2Ti 4.2

“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season;

reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering & doctrine.”

“Bryan, who do you think you are? You say stuff we hear no place else.” I write partly because I’m a saved & sanctified Christian. Praise God. When you agree (or flat out disagree) you’re hearing a man with a Teacher’s Heart (God’s direction since 8th grade). You’re hearing a Pastor urging you to be ready to die. You’re also hearing a Grandpa talking to you “in his living room” – wanting the BEST for you. Yes, I’m probably say things your pastor is not but – – – they need to be said. The world & church are getting worse. Therefore allow an old man to speak some truth before one of us passes into Eternity. Blessings. – 8/17/21

The great prophet chiefly insists upon OBEDIENCE, the FRUIT of faith;

& the great apostle chiefly insists upon FAITH, the root of obedience.”

John Fletcher
