Heb 11.24 +

Heb 11.24

“By faith Moses, when he was come to years,

refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter”

“And as the circumcised in the flesh & not in the heart, have no part in God’s good promises;

even so they that be baptized in the flesh & not in heart, have no part in Christ’s blood.”

William Tyndale

The news wants you to believe what they told you (that’s their assigned “job”). When you start to doubt what they say (don’t forget they’re reading what they’re *given to read*) they & those for whom they work get worried. If you doubt today’s pronouncement, you might doubt what they spout tomorrow. If this continues you’ll reach the point you doubt their “reason” for towers coming down. (And back beyond that other “stories.” It is PAST time to doubt. – 9/1/21 

“The preaching of God’s word is hateful & contrary unto them. Why? For it is impossible to preach Christ, except thou preach against antichrist; that is to say, them which with their false doctrine and violence of sword enforce to quench the true doctrine of Christ.”

William Tyndale

I believe every word of the OT, preach/teach from It, memorize from It, love many of Its stories, poems, maxims but I am a NT Christian, as are *all* followers of Jesus. The OT can’t decide our ethics of war, nor importance of wealth, nor the boundaries of Christian weddings. NT saints don’t wear the jewelry the OT seems to condone, seek the revenge It shows, nor worship on the day It demands. The OT pointed toward a specific place of worship – the NT does not. The OT restricted the Jews to certain foods – the NT does not. The OT allowed the killing of enemies – the NT does not. – 9/8/21

that Spring Thursday night

O-o-oh someday I’ll see the King in His beauty.

Someday all heaven will dazzle my sight

Someday I’ll finish my last “daily-duty”

And it all began that Spring, Thursday night.

None of us are good enough for heaven

The very idea smacks of old carnal pride

God must remove the sin, the leaven

That is the reason our Lord came and died.

We speak of a good man, good neighbor

Christ said none was good but God

All need His grace, His great favor

And can have it, this side of sod.

We can be holy now, we can be pure;

God invites to be just like Him.

Carnality gone – “the double cure.”

Life so bright, that once was so dim.

Someday dad, you’ll lead the last Family Altar – last for a member or last for you. Children marry, leave home or die & of course death awaits you too. Ask God for a revival around your Family Altar. God’s sweet presence is still possible (as in days of yore) if you seek Him. Not all Devotional times are alike (nor should we try to make them so) but live, Dad, so that the Holy Ghost is free to come in HIS delightful way & in HIS holy variety. Your wife, your child needs this. – 9/12/21

1Jo 4.3

“…every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God & this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come & even now already is it in the world”

“I am in the place where I am demanded of my conscience to speak the truth;

& therefore the truth I speak; impugn it who so list.

– John Knox

There are only two(2) spirits in the world: GOD & the one who tried to unseat Him, failed, & is doomed for the lake of fire(Rev 20.10). If you go to a religious meeting (indoor/outdoors) (formal/informal) & people start swaying to “music” or raising their hands/voices or otherwise obeying a “spirit” & you sense it’s an unholy spirit; Leave. Flee! Get out. Some of those thus responding once perhaps attended a true Holy Ghost service & are playing “make believe” that this spirit is of God. You see it is not. Flee. – 9/12/21 

Without [sc. outside] the preaching place Madam I think few have occasion to be offended at me; but there Madam I am not master of myself but maun [sc. must] obey Him who command me to speak plain & to flatter no flesh upon the face of the earth.” 

– John Knox (to Mary Queen of Scots)
