Joh 1.1 +

Joh 1.1

“In the beginning was the Word & the Word was with God

& the Word was God.”

“Every sanctified experience

has a reverse gear in it.”
– Earl Newton

Everybody in Heaven believes the Bible. Everybody in hell believes It. It’s only on the middle ground, earth, between high Heaven & the low pit, that men waver in accepting the truth of Scripture. God allows this. Earth is where we decide to do right or do wrong. Its here we make up our minds to obey the Spirit of Christ or the spirit of antichrist. It’s in this world we make up our minds to be rational & go up or be very irrational & drop. Friend, stop wavering. Begin to believingly read the Holy Book. – 7/25/22

“The Bible nowhere tells us

that a Jew will be the antichrist.”

– L L Pickett

GROWING 1. Do you remember having Dad/Mom or sibling make a mark on the door jam showing you’d grown? You were happy to be taller. Have you grown in your soul? Can your mate, child or parent see you’re spiritually getting bigger? Salvation is the “birth” point. Sanctification is the “circumcision” point (“…circumcision made without hands…”Col 2.11). Beyond these crucial events is a live-time of “growing up” in Christ. Maturing involves putting aside ‘x’ – taking on ‘y.’ – 7/25/22  


Let your eyes take deep pleasure

In “word pics” His Word portrays;

Of earliest stone-walled cities

And of old agricultural ways.

Of a man & his dear life-mate

Of the father with his new son,

Of kings galore & lowly subjects

Both the good & wicked the one.

Enjoy this most Ancient of Books;

Yet – the most accurate tome too.

What breadth of earth-bound experience!

A snatch of hell – a glimpse Beyond-the-Blue.

And as you begin daily readings

Of the greatest Literature known to man,

Ask the Author to help – so you can understand.

The Bible is for us, in our era, in our day

Cherish It. Love It. AND It’s words obey!

ACTOR #2  Do you want your wife to pretend she is something she is not? Would you be happy to find out your husband is deceiving you? Do you want the mayor to be false? The school teacher to be fake? The pastor to just be putting on a “good show”? If you’re craving to watch Make Believe on TV, at a local theater, on a college stage, maybe you’d like the Banker to pretend to hand you money but it be counterfeit? Moderns, even professed “christians” spend too much time with Make Believe. – 7/25/22

Psa 119.104

“Through thy precepts I get understanding:

therefore I hate every false way.”

“It [holiness] is not a completed experience but admits of unending growth.

It…places us in a condition where the obstructions to growth are removed.”

– J M Pike

If you, parent/legal guardian, take youngsters to churches which handle the term “in the spirit” loosely your child may think it normal. If you, Dad/Mom, take youth to ball games (pro or collegiate) your kid may think all “christians” go to such worldly amusements. If you, the adult who’s responsible to “bring them up in the nurture & admonition of the Lord”(Eph 6.4) include a circus, fair, big drama in “upbringing” your child, he may be fooled to think these OK. Where would JESUS go? Please answer that. – 7/26/22

“He will only come to a heart

that is aflame with ardent desire for His presence.”

– J M Pike
