Heb 12.1 +

Heb 12.1

“Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight & the sin which doth so easily beset us & let us run with patience the race that is set before us”

“God wants the church

to be a perfect contrast to the world.”

– Beverly Carradine

Do you have a desire to be Holy? (or, heaven forbid, a desire to “be known” as holy?) Good News! If you truly want to be Holy you can be. God made the provision & He planted that desire to be pure, to be clean, inside your soul. Now, Bro., Now Sis. walk in all your light. Read/study the Bible. Ask the Lord to remove everything, yes, Everything which is unlike Him & to fill you, by faith, with the Holy Ghost. You can, while walking in a sinful world, live pleasing in His sight. Praise the Lord. – 9/9/21

“God has everything you need to do

everything He asks [of] you.

– Steve Stetler

Thy Kingdom come? The fastest way to increase His Kingdom is through preaching/praying converts to Christ. We need to help men from the kingdom of satan to the Kingdom of Christ. But (heaven forbid) if you kill a sinner he can’t be converted; you’ve permanently barred him from the Kingdom & your bullet assigned him to a dark, burning hell f.o.r.e.v.E.R. “But…But he was going to kill me.” So – where would you’ve gone? Please Bro./Sis. kill no sinner – don’t put his blood on your hands. – 9/13/21


And when you see your life in review,

At the close of our little day;

The trials, the tests, He gave what was best,

For you and all the rest.

Each trouble, each pain, each delay, each strain,

He gave because He knew,

That we’d agree with Him, when we see,

Our life in review.  * Chorus “written” (sung & re-sung till memorized) while weeping & driving a yellow moving truck by myself up I-75 through southern Kentucky; I was leaving a dream behind.

I appreciate modesty (men/women). Please keep the necklines up, helm lines down & men, you look more manly in pants to ankles than any abbreviated stuff. Now Hear This. Don’t “rest” on modesty. Too many people who dress “about right” are going to professional sports (Are pulpits silent on this?) Going to Amusement parks (silent pulpits?) Watching “clean” movies. Listening (nearly non-stop) to worldly “gospel” singers. Why this craving? Is the FIRST love gone? The above won’t be in heaven. – 9/13/21

“Through all of time…sin was, is,

will be the parent of misery.”

– Thomas Carlyle

1Jo 2.15

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.

If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him”

Some who don’t know eab may assume – “He’s an old man, so entertainment doesn’t appeal to him.” Old I am but allow me to testify. I spent 10 yrs in Cincy & never attended one(1) Red’s game. Lived 11 yrs in TN & never went to Dollywood. Spent 6 yrs in FL & never went once to disney’s trap. All the above when I was younger. Does this make me more holy? Not necessarily but it saved my mind from mental images I don’t need. AND YOU DON’T EITHER – Drop running to “shows.” – 9/13/21   

“For all is wrong & gone out of joint; the inward spiritual,

& the outward economical; head or heart…indeed evils of all sorts are more or less of kin…”

– Thomas Carlyle
