Job 27.8 +

Job 27.8

“For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained,

when God taketh away his soul?”

“A state of mind that sees God in everything

is evidence of growth in grace & a thankful heart.”

– Charles G Finney

HOME SCHOOL – ASIA #3. Asia not only has the record population (4.5+ billion) & is the largest in square miles, 11,979,676 (in round figures nearly 12 million) but it has the highest spot on earth. Mount Everest rises to 29,035 feet. On this same continent (many miles away) rests the lowest water surface on earth, the Dead Sea, at 1,412 feet below sea level. Somewhat as an aside Asia also has the deepest man-made drill spot, the Kola Bore Hole (Russia) at 40,230 feet.  

“There can be no revival when Mr. Amen and

 Mr. Wet-Eyes are not found in the audience.”

DARK NIGHT

To have once lived Right

And then to walk against Light

Has but one result – sad, dark, Night!

PRIVILEGED

He thought of himself as a special chap,

Luxury cradled him in “cushy” lap,

Food was the finest, bedding was so nice,

Clothing and travel – more than would suffice –

Death’s “disrespecting” grasp, came as a slap.

– eab,  9/21/09  

What’s your main goal? Is it physical, mental or does it relate to your soul? If your main goal is to be achieved by your body – allow a reminder – it’ll wind down in a few yrs. If you main goal involves your mind – I wish you well. Some outlast their housing (the body) some do not, but neither bodies nor “brains” last forever. But if you, dear friend, will seek a Soul Goal – if you’ll live for God, for purity, for eternity, your soul designed to live forever, will supply you the Greatest Possible Goal: now & Above. – Sep 2022

“It is a mournful fact that most men & indeed all men of worldly character, have so much regard to public opinion that they dare not act according to the dictates of their consciences when acting thus would incur the popular frown.

– Charles G Finney

OT vs NT #1.  I read the OT (Old Testament). I believe in the OT. I preach from the OT. I memorize & quote from the OT & I’d encourage you to do all the above. There are many great stories in the OT. Now. Hear. This. I DO NOT LIVE IN THE OT – nor, dear friend, do you. The majority of Christians see a little of this but too few are willing to think about it or articulate it. Expand your reading of the New Testament looking for, “nailing down” facts; differences. Be serious: there ARE two Testaments. – 9/21/22

Mat 5.21-22

“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time…”

“But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause…”

How well do you “know” yourself?  [How honest can you be with “you”?]  What one(1) habit do you need to break – to be a stronger Christian? A better Dad? A more loving Mom? Or what action have you been postponing knowing you need to do ‘X’ but have lacked nerve, lacked manhood, lacked the womanhood to do it? If you’re a “date-setter” – set the date & dive in. If you don’t operate that way, start NOW. *Today* can become a new “holiday” in your life. Do what you know you need to do. – 9/21/22 

“If the presence of God is in the church, the church will draw the world in.

If the presence of God is not in the church, the world will draw the church out.

– Charles G Finney
