Jam 1.27

“Pure religion & undefiled before God & the Father is this,

To visit the fatherless & widows in their affliction & to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Ask of me’ is the one condition God puts in the very advance

& triumph of His cause.” 

– E M Bounds

Please, if you’re a firm believer in the NT, start reading It seeing all the negative the jewish religion did. See all they did to Jesus, Stephen, Paul, & other Christians. Open your eyes as Paul refers to his past in the “jew’s religion”(Gal 1.13-14). Now think through history. There’s NOT been a time Israel or Jews have accepted Christ. Yet I see evangelical/holiness people saying, “I stand with I- – – l” Why? Do they not still reject Christ? “But they believe in one God.” Maybe? They do *not* believe in His Son. – 9/14/21 

“Prayer is our most formidable weapon, but the one in which we are the least skilled,

the most averse to its use.” 

– E M Bounds

Parents – don’t think for a moment that your child doesn’t know who your favorite “gospel singer” is. Nor think your child hasn’t noticed that that singer has hair too long (on a guy) or too short (on a woman -unless she’s had chemo). If you don’t wear jewelry but the singer does – Johnny/Susie sees that. And if you list a song they sing (or especially 1 they wrote) as blessing you, your child can see this as inconsistent. – 9/17/21


Don’t think it odd,

That “good” and “God,”

Are but a letter apart.

Nor think it trivial,

That “evil” and “devil,”

Are alike but for the start.

It’s very possible that someone reading this is living with a husband (or wife) who’s struggling to be saved or stay saved. You may be the key to your mate making heaven. Pray extra hard (& believe as you pray). Be careful to NOT put down your mate. Do not preach at them. Do not bawl them out for not being as spiritual as *you* wish. Love them into the kingdom. May they see so much sweetness in your life they want to be like you – as well as being like Jesus. May God bring your mate to Himself! – 9/17/21

Eph 5.22

“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.”

Eph 5.25

“Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church & gave himself for it;”

“You save an old man & you save a unit;

but save a boy & you save a multiplication table.”

– Gipsy Smith

Do you go to the best church YOU can? “It seems to be the best here but it’s so cold, so formal.” If Bro. if Sis. after prayer it’s the best you have, begin to pray. Pray for the pastor to be saved (if he’s not) then pray that he be filled with the Holy Ghost. Pray for the song leader. Pray for yourself to be a warming influence. Sing as best you can. Pray in the service as loud as you dare. Testify? Yes. Who knows but what your clear testimony to living above sin is the VERY thing someone needs. Christ raised Lazarus. – 9/18/21

If you are in with God you are out with the world.”

– Gipsy Smith
