Mat 5.4 +

Mat 5.4

“Blessed are they that mourn:

for they shall be comforted.

The Bible is the only authoritative document

that is sufficient when it comes to matters of the soul.”

– Bobgans & Mahan

There is a filling with God’s Holy Spirit initially & there are subsequent fillings. One could argue that the jostles of life, wear & tear of battles, or the heat of the day (“evaporation”) tend to lower the Spirit level & we need re-filled. Or one could say that the capacity of the soul increases as he grows with God & there’s now *more room to hold more of Him. In either case God is capable of filling us “on the run” but there’s also (& importantly) a time to rest & seek more of Him. – 5/14/22

The simplest way to live more than an average life

is to add an hour to the fresh end of the day.”

– Bruce Barton


God created, six days in a row.

Made all who swim, fly, walk to & fro.

He also made man – nice, last guy

Man walks little, swims less, can’t fly

But God likes him – – – made man like HIM.

Every person on the face of earth has a relationship with God. That relationship may be horrible – because they’ve chosen to hate Him (God doesn’t hate them – if they say *that* they’re believing a lie of satan [who DOES hate them]). Or, Praise the Lord, the relationship with God may be very honorable – because they Love God & hold Him in highest respect. Dear colleague, what is YOUR relationship with Jesus? You can – if you will – love Him with all your heart. Do that. – 5/16/22

“The wars of Israel were the only ‘holy wars’ in history

for they were the wars of God against the world of idols.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer

Once you know what God (not you – GOD) wants you to do in life, head toward it. If you have to take small steps, take them. If within wks or months God allows bigger steps take them. Be aware He may again give you a mile (or miles) of small steps again (after the bigger ones); take the smaller ones again. You may question yourself; do NOT question God unless it is with UPMOST reverence (“…Holy & Reverend is HIS name” Psa 111.9) Do God’s will, if it kills you. It did John the Baptist. – 5/16/22

Heb 11.6

“…He that cometh to God must believe that he is,

& that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

A man’s heroes tell you a lot about him. If his heroes are hard working men, he may aspire to be a mighty man. If his heroes are actors, mere imitators of reality, he may be headed toward falseness & fakery. If the greatest men in “his book” were men who lived & died for God (whether he actually knew them or not) he may become a seeker after righteousness. “O God, protect the church from men who have cheap heroes – give us men who admire those who admired You. Amen.” – 5/19/22

“We cannot expect hollywood to do in the soul

what only the Spirit can accomplish.”

– John A Bjorlik
