Zep 3.17 +

Zep 3.17

The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice

over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.”

“He [man] is free to choose how he will act

but he is not free to choose the results of this action.”

– L D Wilcox

It’d take a long list to show the trails of religious deceivers. Some were once sincerely seeking God but never saved. satan saw, posed as an “angel of light”(2Co 11.14) stood at a cross-roads & pointed them away. Others actually were saved (Mat 10.22ff) but at some point, hesitated to go forward with God & then sought an easier road. Are all *deceivers themselves deceived? Some (IMO) sadly are. AND some (again IMO) know they’re deceiving. Is it a game with them? Do they not see Hell gaping at their feet? – 4/23/22

“A foreigner won’t likely invest in real estate…he doesn’t intend to stay

…picture of the Christian & his lack of interest in earthly values.”

True hymns glorify HIM. They lead your mind toward worship. If you’re intrigued by the “climbing & falling” of notes more than the words you ought to examine the song. If the syncopation has more of your attention than the words, take a second look at that song. Hymns have God at their center, not the tune, not the timing. Fall in love (“again”?) with the hymns of yore. Many of the best were penned straight from the godly poet’s heart. Too many modern ditties were *done by musicians, NOT godly poets. – 4/25/22

Screech to Halt                                                      .

One day life will screech to a halt;

That sudden stop will not be your fault.

Negative “honors” go to that first man;

He started human sin (he and his wife)

With sin came death – ending of life.

Death is not God’s first/final plan.

Life for you, for me, will end;

God only knows, could be “‘round the bend.”

But praise God, you awoke this morn.

“The sun’s not shining”? It is somewhere

Be glad for those living “over there.”

Even if rainy, for you, a new day was born.

“But I don’t feel like singing praise.”

Then let prose from your lips now raise.

You’re alive for another God-given-day

I, in person, am happy to live

Want my talent (or two) His honor to give.

This morning, Lord, Thy Praise I say.

HOME SCHOOL. Please Dad, please Mom, emphasis reading. Teach your child how to read. 1.) By reading TO him. 2.) By reading WITH him (you read a sentence/he reads one – you read a paragraph/he reads one). 3.) By letting him read to you. You can even do knitting/carving etc. (other hand-work) if you’ll pay close attention & have him seated beside you so you can look over for corrections in pronunciation. Do not be too hard on his mistakes. Encourage every difficult word he says correctly. – 5/1/22  

Psa 85.10

“Mercy & truth are met together;

righteousness & peace have kissed…”

“There is no scripture to support their theory of separation of rapture & revelation

…proponents are mostly Calvinists.”

You meet Truth on the road – What’s your reaction? Do you say, “Hi, I’m Jim (Jane) & You, Truth, do not know how Happy I am to meet You. Thanks for coming my way.” Or do you say, “Go Your way – maybe I’ll be more interested later.” [In other words, when I’m more mature.] Or do you say, “What are you doing, bothering me? I know all I *want [key word] to know now; don’t confuse me with any facts, my mind is made up – so – Good Bye!” Watch Out, Friend. You may never meet Truth, in this life, again. – 5/2/22

“…God is ready

to share His holiness with men…”
