Luk 21.8 +

Luk 21.8

“…Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying,

I am Christ; & the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.

“Methodists & Baptists may not agree but they agree

that the Bible is true, whatever it says.”

– Bob Jones, Sr. (quoted by Al Janey)

BIBLE  The Bible is not a Book of tangible pictures. Picture books have a place with a young child but even then should be use to associate a wagon (bed, handle, 4 wheels) with the word on the page “wagon.” We read to our kiddos to encourage them to read. Let me encourage YOU to read the “word pics” in God Holy Book. Learn to cherish words. In an age riddled with images – some “stills,” some “movies,” some even actors dressed as animals/weird people, be a mature Christian – Love Words. 7/22/22

The greatest trial of humility is a humble behavior

towards your equals in age estate & condition of life.”

The ship is crowded by the crowd,

The airplane to the last seat,

The bus is loaded down,

The train’s capacity is beat,

The car is jammed with people,

The cab can hold no more,

The wagon has no room,

And bikes aren’t made for four.

Be you one of many souls

On whatever conveyance

On a vehicle’s travel zone

In final, full reality

You  /  I travel life’s trail Alone.

Alone we were born to our fair mom

Alone we’re born to dad

Alone we’ll always feel

When happenings are so sad.

Alone we learn to ride the bike

Alone we learn to swim

Alone we clamber up the hill

And roll down its side, on a whim.

Alone we pass the last hard class

Alone we run the race

Alone we jump the creek’s broad span

(Successful or on our face).

Alone we apply for that job

Alone we learn to drive

Alone we gather living skills

By which we hope to thrive.

Alone we feel when we fail

Alone and taking the blame

Alone even when at the top;

Loneliness is a part of fame.

Alone we get the news from home

Alone we read the letter

Alone we also read the Good Book

To guide us, make us better.

Alone we answer the call

Alone we serve our stay

Alone we leave in truck or plane

And feel alone as we pull away.

From what I see, we’ll die alone,

Alone I say – but let me quickly share

Through the above we were not alone.

God loves us; He was always there!

TV #1. Dad & Mom did themselves the favor of never bringing a TV into their house. Thank God, they did me (youngest child) a great favor also. I have no memory of a living room all dark except the glare of a one-eyed-monster reaching out for our minds, affecting our buying habits, polluting our vocabularies, warping our imaginations with what it labeled (or perhaps insinuated) were “facts” & worse, feeding us fictional tales. (Note: I didn’t even mention sex in which it specialized.) – 7/25/22

“If I hate or despise any one man in the world

I hate something that God cannot hate & despise that which he loves.”

ACTOR #1  Do you have a favorite actor? I hope if you testify to being a follower of Christ the answer is No. Even more emphatically ‘NO’ if you say the Holy Ghost dwells in His fullness. Actors are pretenders. They ARE fake. They feign they’re something they’re not. They try to make you think they’re So-n-So when they’re no such person. Bluntly, they ARE liars. “But he is SO good at acting.” Do you mean he is so good at deceiving you? Please Sir, Ma’am flee the world of Make Believe. – 7/25/22

1 Ti 6.20

“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane

& vain babblings, & oppositions of science falsely so called”

Science is not going to “save” you. Not now. Not later. It’s time you awaken to the fact that science wants to be your “god.” No. Do not bow to it anymore than Hananiah, Mishael, & Azariah bowed on the plain of Dura. Scripture, of course was first. Science is a johnny-come-late. It’s trying to make a big show, it’s fooling many non-thinkers but, Praise God, you do not have to be one of them. Science has tried to discredit Scripture. It will lose. Walk away from false science. – 7/25/22

“If we are to follow Christ

it must be in our common way of spending every day.”
