Act 5.29 +

Act 5.29

“Then Peter & the other apostles answered & said

‘We ought to obey God rather than men.’”

“As I passed through t company dejected & disappointed it occurred to my mind what is all this immense multitude assembled for? To see a few horses gallop 2-3miles round a course as if the devil were both in them & their riders! Certainly we are all mad…if we imagine that t Almight made us to seek happiness in such senseless amusements.”
– Geo. Story, told by Able Stevens

BEAR WITH ME #4. Some want their son to be able to cook, bake, clean etc. Again allow me to disagree. [I speak not of chefs.] If/when a man needs to “fend for himself” most won’t die of starvation. We (define “we” anyway you wish to) don’t need more men who fastidiously clean/cook/bake. Do not make a feminine guy out of the Son, God wants you to turn into a man. A little help in the kitchen is fine but please Mom, please Dad, raise a man. Oh, how we need more M.E.N. OF GOD. – Aug. 2022

“He now became an assiduous student of the Bible keeping it before him on the counter of the shop

in which he was employed…His mind was quickeded…His aspirations for knowledge became intense”

– John Smith, told by Able Stevens

You could die today. “Don’t try to scare me; I’m young.” My only brother was killed at 17. A man who stood up in our wedding was dead at 20. Jesus Christ was crucified in His 30’s. You may (probably do) know someone who passed away in 40s, 50s, 60s. Many to not make their “three score & ten.” And – – – after you die? “Oh, I was baptized in So-n-So Creek” Or “I joined the church last week” Or “I’ve never done x y or z.” If you have not believed on the Lord Jesus Christ you are Lost. Be saved today. – 8/22/22


What would you do TODAY

If you knew it were your last?

Would you “watch” what you say?

Straighten up a smutty past?

Or admit that you were wrong?

(Which you’ve known all along.)

Is something coming “Down the Pike”? Yes – 0 Yes. I can’t tell you *what* except as the Bible does. [Nor can the Bible “scholar” you hear (radio/podcast) or whose last book you devoured.] But there’s wonderful Good News – God’s in charge (as He always has been J). satan & social planners would like you to worry – they can control you better that way – but God said “Fear Not.” He said that to Abram (Gen 15.1) & He said it over & over & over until Revelation (1.17) a last time. He Means It! Obey Him. – 8/22/22     

Rev 1.17

“…He laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me,

‘Fear not; I am the first & the last’”

“You have taken each other for better & for worse;

the worse came first & it will now be all the better.”

– Hodgson Casson (to newly saved couple)

“Dying & death…are distinct things; there is something gloomy in & melancholy about dying; whereas death is nothing, but as it opens the way to glory.”
