Mat 18.20 +

Mat 18.20

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name

there am I in the midst of them.

Humility seeks not the last word

 not the first place.”

– Wm Penn

Only one History is paramount. If you claim to “love history” even see yourself as a “historian” & have not studied the Bible, you are kidding yourself. God was THERE when *all* history happened. He could correctly be called the Author of History (as He is the Author of all else that is good). God saw what x man/woman DID (seeing more deeply & from angles than man can) AND He saw what was in their heart/mind as they scribbled their little paragraph of history. You Can Trust God. – June 2022

…It [Bible] has swayed a greater amount of mind(sic) than any other volume the world has known.

It has the singular faculty of attracting to itself the thinkers of the world.”

– Austin Phelps

AWAKE SINNER, SAINT

We live in a age of deception

At school, in church, on all the earth

It’s beyond most soul’s conception

At work, in state, & over most mirth.

Awake sinner.  Awake saint.

See what lies behind that screen of lies.

Falseness in not rare nor even quaint

It’s most everywhere man walks or flies.

You’ve been deceived from near birth

So-few-things are what they seem.

Seek truth – its at a level near dearth

God’s Word & faith alone can redeem.

– eab,  6/1/18 

Some people having wide influence today, should NOT. Perhaps they wouldn’t, IF those going to hear them “preach or sing or play an instrument” were willing to look at the compromise of the “performer.” Some others are selling recordings of music or books or doing other deeds which would not be being bought or “enjoyed” if believers had Discernment. Look up details. Follow the red thread back through history. Become a THINKER. It will save $, save time, & could save hour soul! – 6/21/22

“Truth

has never lost ground by inquiry.”

– Wm Penn

Ever weeded your garden? (Not your parent’s – your’s, there’s a difference.) He who likes eatable plants does not like weeds. Flat & simple. Weeding is work. (Just did a bed: ½ eggplant, ½ yellow squash, this AM.) Work; but there’s almost a pleasure in pulling that weed. And, Friend, there’s a pleasure in ridding your life of wrong i.e. that which is the enemy of Right. Going to heaven is not easy (few things of value are) But. Pull. That. Weed. Ask God for help & He will help as you weed your life. – 6/23/22

Mat 7.16

“Ye shall know them by their fruits.

Do men gather grapes of thorns or figs of thistles?”

“To be proud of learning

is the greatest ignorance.”  

– Jeremy Taylor
