Job 23.3 +

Job 23.3

“Oh that I knew where I might find him!

that I might come even to his seat!”

“A good wife is heaven’s last, best gift to man – his gem of many virtues, his casket of jewels; her voice is sweet music, her smiles his brightest day, her kiss the guardian of his innocence, her arms the pale of his safety.”

– Jeremy Taylor (1613-67)

You very probably already have a reputation in your circles. Permit me to encourage you to be better than people think you are. Be more like Jesus than your boss sees. Be a better Christian than your pastor imagines. Be a better man than even your wife thinks. Too many men, even preachers, “Sell for more than they are worth.” Make it your goal to be better on the inside &, if anything, “Sell for less than you’re worth.” God, the Father, knows true value & a Reward Day is coming. – 9/16/22  

“God hath given to man a short time here upon earth

& yet upon this short time eternity depends.”

– Jeremy Taylor (1613-67)

MIRTH?

It’s strictly a “commodity” of earth.

Heaven (with JOY) has not need of it.

Hell wishes they’d never heard of it.

Mourn now sinner, that you may rejoice above;

Mourn saint, FOR sinners, that they find His love.

Joy cometh in the morning, for those now mourning.

Of our Blessed Lord.

WOMAN PREACHER. #3 The woman someone included in their post was outfitted in pants. Imagine that. A woman preaching (a man’s job) in britches (man’s garment) & she even had short hair (mannish haircut). In the post to which I refer that woman had a top above her trousers which was partly shear so skin showed part of her back & arms. Please rouse out of your sleepiness. You should hear no woman preacher. Period. Let us be Biblical, even if others aren’t. – 9/16/22

God is pleased with no music below so much as with the thanksgiving songs of relieved widows & supported orphans; of rejoicing, comforted & thankful persons.

– Jeremy Taylor (1613-67)

HOME SCHOOL – ASIA #1.  So many westerns know so little about Asia – myself included. It is the largest continent, said to be 5,515 miles west to east & 5,465 miles north to south. Sounds nearly cubish but everyone who know anything of Asia knows it has (as all God-made earth-forms) intriguingly intricate shore lines. This largest land mass, appropriately enough, has the largest population – est. 4,728,681,729 souls. Teach your child more about Asia. Make it a bigger part if his geography. – 9/19/22

Rev 1.10

“I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, &

heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,”

As a church loses spiritual life it tends to be interested in the formal. Services slope toward being predictable. The spontaneous testimony becomes rare. The sob (even a quiet sob) is almost never heard during prayer. The old saint standing weeping, without speaking an audible word, happens less. Men who like formal religion want to *know* what comes next – yes, & even control it. “O God, deliver us from COLD formality. Restore to our little congregations a measure of THY sweet presence.” – 9/19/22    

“It is impossible for that man to despair

who remembers that his Helper is omnipotent.”

– Jeremy Taylor (1613-67)
