Jude 25 +

Jude 25

“To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory & majesty,

dominion & power, both now & ever. Amen.”

The tragedy of today is

that the situation is desperate but the saints are not.”

– Vance Havner

There are 5 important “W” words. They are Who, What, Where, When, & Why. Please look at your hand. The thumb is short (put 3 letter Who there), the index is longer (put 4 letter What there), the middle finger is longest (put 5 letter Where there), the 3rd finger is shorter (put the other 4 letter word When there), & the little is shorter yet (put 3 letter Why there). All have a place on your hand but don’t let WHY fool you – it can be most important of all. Never be afraid to ask this “W” word. – 11/9/21

The devil is not fighting religion. He’s too smart for that. He is producing a counterfeit Christianity, so much like the real one that good Christians are afraid to speak out against it.”

– Vance Havner

There is a danger in ritualistic religion – men following mere dry, dusty form & thus hoping to go to heaven. Avoid it. There is also a danger in following a “free spirit” (not the Holy Spirit) & thus being unholy, irreverent, even blasphemous. The Answer? Follow the Bible & God’s present Holy Ghost in worship. You can do this totally in private & hopefully you can find a group of like-minded souls & meet once a week (at least) & there obey both the Scriptures & the Spirit. Blessings. -11/12/21

Let me love

Let me love those to my left

Let me love those to my right

And, let me love those, who

Unless they change,

Are headed for eternal night.

The devil hates the Word. The Word lets us know that satan even exits (he’d like you to doubt that). The Word of God describes satan as a liar. The Word tells us (humans, weaker than he is, yet redeemable still – he’s not) that satan will be defeated (satan will like you to believe he can win; he can NOT). The Word is our greatest (tangible) guide to defeating satan. The devil hates the Word & wants to see the Bible destroyed. – 11/13/21

Jude 5

“I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord

having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.”

“…We who are Christians are expected by & by to be like Jesus,

not only in one particular but in every particular…”

We may have seen a dad in a store with afflicted child (mentally/physically) & felt sorry for him (not the child – the child’s being well cared-for). When Jesus invited us to call God “Father” He, in a sense, put God in the position of the dad with the afflicted child. Feel sorry for God – He has to be “seen in public” with us. Therefore we ought to fully obey Him & be at our BEST, considering Who we represent. Thank you, Jesus. – 11/13/21 

“One can be joyful, happy & congenial; but there is no place where

we can be trifling, light & funny & live in the is inner-circle with Jesus.”
