Mat 5.37 +

Mat 5.37

“But let your communication be, ‘Yea, yea’ ‘Nay, nay’

for whatsoever is more than these cometh of evil.

My soul is filled & overhelmed with light

& love & joy in the Holy Ghost”

 – Mrs Jonathan Edwards, quoted by Knapp, Christ Crowned Within

MALE & FEMALE. These started the *home as Husband & Wife. They continue the *home (Dad/Mom). Male & Female intimacy produces the next home. Dad/Mom – you’re responsible to see to it your son is Masculine. In western culture he should wear pants (not skirt). He should wear a shirt (not blouse – they button differently). His shoes should be masculine in style, color. While “Jr.” is home it’s up to you, Dad/Mom to see that he looks like a man. If you slack on this YOU ARE FAILING your son! – 5/26/22  

The will of God will never lead you

where the grace of God cannot keep you.”

– David Gibbs II’s mother

Book of Life

When the angel looks at the “Book of Life”

Will he find you had love – or lots of strife?

Did you love your neighbor across the way

Enough to smile, wave, enough to pray?

And the guy who went to that *different church

Or did not go – did you leave him in a lurch?

Actions not only speak here on this earth,

Judgment Day will find them of great “worth.”

– eab,  5/28/15 

The Bible doesn’t have one cartoon. It has many, many “pictures.” They are Word pictures, inspired by Almighty God & penned by His servants (prophets, kings, disciples, others). Modernity is overrun with cartoons: very few are true-to-life, several are animalistic (God doesn’t want us acting like animals & animals do NOT act like sinful men) & many are silly or worse, sensual. I wish you, Christian, would see you need to stop loving cartoons. Don’t post anything that smacks of disney/hollywood. – 5/27/22

“If God calls you to be a preacher

don’t stoop to be a king” (to his son)

– Wm Gladstone, qouted by Tom Reed

The images of old was stone, gold, wood – not right to bow to but all substantial things. Moderns bow to flimsy, film images. Supposedly the old image was about worship – they were trying to believe that image could do “x” for them, could serve their needs. Modern plastic images has stepped (it might appear) from “worship” to entertainment. But – hold on, silly man worships entertainment. People are conditioned to see mere actors as larger than life (they’re not), to see the stars as “gods.” Sick! – 5/28/22

Rev 15.4

“Who shall not fear thee, O Lord & glorify thy name? for thou only art holy:

for all nations shall come & worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.”

There’s hoping you have a memory (maybe it’s not too long ago). You were in a service when God’s Holy Spirit settled in (He was being glorified – therefore He came). You praised Him. You raised hands & voice & honored His sweet presence. Yes, there were saints also there. Yes, they were praising Him too. You were aware of a Christian Bro or Sis but they were distinctly peripheral – God was the focus (both to you AND to them). Maybe this is a glimpse of how heaven is – God at the Absolute Center. – 5/29/22

“…Christ[’s]…challenge was not to save ourselves but to lose ourselves;

not understand Him but to have courage to follow Him.”  

– Wilfred Grenfell, MD
