1Jo 5.18 +

1Jo 5.18

“We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God

keepeth himself & that wicked one toucheth him not.”

“The senses of the soul are so delicately tempered & so finely constructed that a foolish word, an impure thought or a foul breath will mar its beautiful walls & grieve the Spirit & separate t soul from the communion & smile of its Christ.”

– J B McBride

Never allow you’re at-home-daughter to date (not 1st date) a man who has a living wife. Never allow a still-under-your-roof son to date (no, not once) a woman whose husband is alive. Don’t give consent to an-away-from-home daughter/son to date anyone with a living companion. If they (the one away) insists, let them know you won’t, repeat WON’T, attend said wedding. (And be such a man, be such a woman of your word, that they know you will NOT be there.) Marriage is FOR LIFE! – 11/9/21 

“One cannot live in such close fellowship [‘Where Jesus is ‘tis Heaven there’]

with Him & go where the world goes.”

– J B McBride

If the pastor’s wife, college prof’s wife, missionary’s wife (or heaven forbid, the men) are tinting their hair – is this not a form of hypocrisy? Are they not trying to look younger than they are? Remember this, if you CAN members of the church, college, mission will also be tempted to think they CAN. “Bryan mind your own affairs.” Pardon me (if you must) I wish for your church members, school/mission staff to make heaven – if helping you, will help them – maybe, maybe this IS my affair, as a minister of Christ. – 11/9/21


Jesus said – Ah, the Authority of the Son.

(Its meaning partly “bound” until the end)

“I am the way.” The way to what, Friend?

“The Truth.” Limitless now, if we only knew.

“The Life.” Whatever walked, or swam, or flew.

Hopefully, we’ll know more, when earth is done.

Dad/Mom be careful, VERY careful who *you* endorse. You may put up a singer, a singing group, a preacher, a cluster of preachers & your child believe you. We DO have false teachers (2Pe 2.1) among us. When you highly recommend your child to go see, to believe in “x” or “y” you’d better, BETTER be sure of that singer/preacher – your child could think that all “x” or “y” does is OK & lose their soul. Ask God for a spirit of discernment. Today. – 11/11/21  

“…I am condemned to die & after that to come to judgment

& I find that I am not willing to do the first, nor able to do the second.”

– John Bunyan

2Pe 2.1

“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers

among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies…”

You ARE a believer. You are very likely a believer in the “gods of science” or in the God of Scripture. [note: do not try to convince yourself – as many of us have tried in the past – that you can equally believe both.] I’m sorry for those families who have suffered & lost loved ones in this “era of virus” but hopefully this has awakened some people to Not. Believe. Science. When the Bible says “x” & philosophical “science” says the opposite; I hope you go with Scripture. I do! – 11/11/21

“…According to the strength or weakness of his faith in his Saviour

so is his joy & peace so is his love to holiness so are his desires to know Him more…”

– John Bunyan
