1Pe 3.3 +

1Pe 3.3

“Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair,

& of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel”

Sin as an act must be forgiven;

sin as a principle must be cleansed.”

– R G Flexon

Some of our fore-parents had a cellar with home-canned meats/veggies. Others had attics with “leather-britches” or maybe other veggies/fruits drying. Some had root-cellars with potatoes, carrots, turnips in sand. A few even had a smoke-house hanging with pork or beef smoked to perfection. The above was normal for them. Don’t let anyone tell you that it’s wrong for you to have food (dried beans, rice, dried pastas, canned meats, soups, veggies) stored. It’s God-given common sense. Do it. – 9/28/21

“Native timidity is no sign of a lack of grace,

& native boldness is not sign of any degree of grace.”

– R G Flexon

If you’re enjoying the lingering look of any man other than your husband, you need to get right with God. Now. Confess to Him your lust (or the wicked pleasure of that guy’s lust) & beg the Lord to remove carnality from your heart. This is a must. Lust will not be allowed in God’s pure heaven. And, never, NEVER allow yourself to be alone with that man. (Lust is stronger than you may realize.) – 9/30/21

APPEAR

Sinners appear to have on earth

The easy way of wine, winning, mirth.

“Appear” is the key word here

Soon come trials, failure, and fear

Sin costs FAR more than it’s worth!

– eab,  10/4/17

KEEP SWEET

Now is the saint’s hardest hour;

Holding out ‘gainst “higher power,”

Looking away from tempting sights,

Praying on some long, dark nights,

And keeping sweet when some go sour.

– eab,  10/4/17 

Some parents who have had backbone enough to refuse to allow their divorced & re-married son to sleep under the parent’s roof with his second “mate.” The D&R couple have been allowed to visit but not to sleep in the same bed at Dad/Mom’s house. Easy? Not at all. Consistent with their belief in NT marriage-teaching of Christ? Yes. Many of these parents didn’t attend the “wedding” of said son. To do so would have put their approval on the illicit union. Living for Jesus takes strength in this decaying world. – 10/2/21

2Pe 1.21

“For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:

but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost”

“A state of mind that sees God in everything

is evidence of growth in grace & a thankful heart.”

– Charles Finney

If you’re not convinced the KJV is correct I suggest you make no statement about your doubt. Give yourself a year to read 1.) The sales pitches for a new “translation” (Please pick out 1 only). 2.) In fairness, read what is being written against your pick of new “translations” by the proponents of a contending “translation.” 3.) And read what a KJV man (or two) has to say about the weakness of your chosen “translation.” A year may not be enough but you may see the foolishness before that. – 10/4/21

“There can be no revival when

Mr. Amen & Mr. Wet-Eyes are not found in the audience.”

– Charles Finney
