Heb 11.3 +

Heb 11.3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”

You can judge the quality of their faith from the way they behave.

Discipline is an index to doctrine.

– Tertullian (155-240 AD)

“Sister” do your fb/social media pics show your hair changing hues & getting shorter? How much did you pray about cutting & coloring the hair God gave? “I prayed about it & felt God would understand my desires.” Allow me to be your friend. Allow me to say some pray WITH THEIR MIND MADE UP. Does a desire for a younger look show pride? God intends that a lady have hair HIS length – not her length. I fear you “playing” with your hair, reveals a shallowness of soul. Please get serious with God. – 9/6/21

The first reaction to truth is hatred.”

– Tertullian (155-240 AD)

How much are you thinking about Heaven? “Occasionally.” I’m glad you’re honest. Too many of us think too little about where WE SAY we’re going. Ouch? If someone gave you an all-expense-paid trip to (country of your choice) would you be thinking about it? And – the closer you got to departure date – the more you’d be thinking about the land you’re going to visit. Friend, Heaven is not a land you’re going to visit. It is Permanent. Increase your thoughts, yea your *longings* for Heaven! – 9/6/21


On the broad road you can pull a wide load:

The pleasure, the frolic, the game.

You feel you must pursue them – really want to do them

Without “sport” and “show” life would be sooo “tame.”

But believe it or not, you’ll someday see them as rot

Acknowledge their binding strings with shame.

(For narrow is the way to eternity’s Bright Day.)

Your excuses to the Almighty are worse than lame.

satan is a liar. He’s spreading lies via TV (as he’s done for decades). The devil uses a lot of moving “ads” (with who knows how many lies – hidden or otherwise) on computers/smart phones. Almost all the Movie Industry is deceptive. If you “liberated” yourself from home (or home church) “restrictions” & got a TV you provided satan a direct pipeline into your mind & PLEASE hear it, into the minds of your innocent children. Drop TV & *limit* computer time also. satan is a liar. – 9/7/21

Heb 8.6

“But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises;”

“He…that hath his portion first must needs have a time to spend it;

 he that hath his portion last must have it lastingly.

– John Bunyan

Almost all recognize the Bible is divided into the OT & the NT. Christ made the difference. Christians (as His imitators) do not live in OT nor are we obligated to “try to live” like we’re there. An in-depth-look at the several differences makes an interesting Bible Study. I hope you, or your home Bible study group, or your church will take up this subject. Some have reverted to Hebrew Roots. No. Believe every word of the OT but also be fully aware we live in the freedom of a better (Heb 8.6) NT. – 9/7/21 

The end of the world is compared to our harvest;

& you know men at harvest regard nothing but fruit.”

– John Bunyan
