Job 42.10 +

Job 42.10

“…the LORD turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends

also the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.”

“…I have been among Episcopalians, Congregationalists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Baptists & members of many other denominations & I have found that no amount of baptismal water can keep the devil out of the hearts & lives of Christians.”

– Jonathan Goforth – BY MY SPIRIT p. 119

OT vs NT #2. The fact of two Testaments has to do with more than centuries. The temple veil was dramatically rent from the top to the bottom marking (in addition to our Lord’s death) the change from an old order to the new. We passed from a rite-filled, ritual-bound religion to the freedom of salvation brought by Christ & Him alone. Anyone doubting the new, must re-read the King’s List: “But I say unto you…” Christ was always serious. Do not dare to ignore His inaugural Listing (Mat 5.21-48). – 9/22/22

“There can be no alternative;

 it is either Holy Ghost revival or apostasy.”

– Jonathan Goforth


Before there was a fallen, sinful man

There was God’s faultless, salvation plan.

God keeps His tide so tied

That it never reaches

Above certain sandy spots

On His ancient, worn beaches.

People stay away from a church with “fire” – they don’t want light. Souls don’t go to hear a close preacher – they don’t want light. Damnation appears to be a place *without light – Matthew (ch. 8, 22, 25) speaks of “outer darkness.” They didn’t want light & may go all eternity without light. People didn’t want to drink of Christ’s water – in hell they’ll want one DROP of water (Luk 16.24). They don’t want to remember Bible truth, here – hell may have them remembering all the Bible they *ever heard. – 9/22/22

“Surely, since the sinless Son of God had to be made sin for us

an over‑emphasis upon sin is in the nature of things impossible.”

– Jonathan Goforth

Avoid the use of magic or magical (even the words!) – Christians don’t need such. We have the power of God’s miracles. Never think referring to a witch or a wizard as a light thing. They belong to a totally different master. Their pitiful master (satan) will soon be eternally incarcerated by our Wonderful Master, Jesus Christ. Have nothing to do with satan’s “supernatural” (may also be called “paranormal”) or his “unexplained” or anything dubbed “enchanting.” Do NOT be curious about satan’s tricks. – 9/22/22

Joh 14.6

“Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth & the life:

no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’”

Be honest in THY soul. Do you want Truth or, or Do you want fiction? If you want Truth today you are likely to have Truth tomorrow (when BTW, it will be the most welcome “commodity” you can possibly imagine). If you desire Fiction today you’ll (unless, by God’s grace you change) have Fiction tomorrow – – – when you’ll wish you’d never seen or heard of it. Today you can still line up with Truth. I urge you, make that URGE you, to do whatever it takes to get on the good side of Truth. – 9/23/22

“We cannot emphasize too strongly our conviction

that all hindrance in the Church is due to sin.”

– Jonathan Goforth
