Heb 3.15 +

Heb 3.15

“To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts,

as in the provocation.”

“It is not the manifestation we want at all

it is Him we want.”

– C W Ruth

If you want your daughter to marry (I assume a normal, parental wish) & yet early realize, she has a quirk, a limitation, anything that makes her different (including an exceptional mind) begin to pray for her to be found by THE right young man. God may have (in the next church, next community, next county) a chap who’ll be able to neutralize her quirk, shore-up a limitation, even admire her braininess (tho he may not match it) & love her with pure, Godly affection. Pray for him & her. – 8/29/21

“They [the world] say “We go to the theatre, play cards, dance,

 go to football games, horse races etc. etc. & so do your church members.”

– C W Ruth


Church – may I have your attention? Are you really watching a movie a week? How long does a movie last: hour – hour & a half? If your pastor came by your house, got you & your family on your knees for an hour once a week would that be OK? Be welcome? WHAT? You’re watching 2 movies a week? Are you praying 2 – 3 hours a week (in addition to family altar)? As a non-movie-going, non-movie-renting adult I fear evangelical/holiness families are backsliding. Movies are helping that happen. – 8/29/21

WORDS

A word can be written & after written, Read.

A word can be heard, heard after it is said.

Words are such wonderful things, have such charming ways

Both when spoken & written and then for 1000s of days.

Man appears to be the inventor of sculpture, music, “art.”

But words, my Friend, came directly from God’s heart.

– eab,  8/3/21

There seems to be an increase in “religious” entertainment. It varies from hearing college choirs & quartets to church music concerts, to going to hear professional/semi-professional “christian” singers, to watching drama groups perform some “biblical” rendition, to being fascinated by a “christian puppet” to hearing a “clean comedian.” What’s caused this hunger? Why this desire to sing or sing along, or laugh or clap, or even raise hands in “praise”? These Friend, are not a moves toward REVIVAL. – 8/29/21

“The prospects are bright as the promises of God.”

– Adoniram Judson

Luk 18.20

“Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Honor thy father and thy mother.”

God is gaining the ascendancy in your congregation or the devil is. No church can move closer to God & farther from Him at the same time. Which way is YOUR group going? And perhaps the most important thing with which I can probe – Are you *Helping God be move freely in your service or are you *Hindering? Did you testify the last time the Spirit asked you to or did you stifling the Holy Ghost? Please friend, drop out of your schedule something so you can pray more. – 8/29/21    

“Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell;
I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.”
