Psa 1.1 +

Psa 1.1

Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly

nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.”

The weakest believer is a member of Christ as well as the strongest; & the weakest member of the body mystically shall not perish. Christ will cut off rotten members, but not weak members.”

– Richard Watson

PRAYING TOGETHER.  Praying in a group (pre-service on a Lord’s Day AM or PM) or at an especially called prayer meeting can be rewarding. When you weaken, a brother on the other side of the church (or barn) may be going strong & encourage you to come back “into the battle” after you catch your breathe. Or you may be being lead to louder or longer praying & thus help another who is lagging a tad. Join in such cooperate seasons of prayer as opportunity arises. – 9/22/22

Faith is the vital artery of the soul. When we begin to believe, we begin to love. Faith grafts the soul into Christ, as the scion [shoot cut for grafting] into the stock & fetches all its nutriment from the blessed Vine.

When “we” bring in a speaker who is left-of-center & still moving left; When we quote (in person or on paper) an individual who lives a sub-Biblical life-style; When a main “supporter” is a Used-To-Be-Holiness soul/church but now “Holiness unto the Lord” is seldom heard – – – “we’d” better do some checking. “We” – in a quest to be Bigger, in a desire be appear more Tolerant, in following the wrong “Jesus” have lost the True Jesus. He, the True Christ, was more radical than most want to admit. – 9/22/22

Different King

A million men have, I suppose,

With/without title, wore king’s clothes,

Enjoyed the pomp and kingly sway,

Then, as many others, faded away.

He was/is KING who died and then Arose.

No. The date upon which you were born does NOT decide your destiny. You & God do that. You with God, can go to be with Him in Joyful-ness forever. If you chose to leave God out of your life – God will let you but when you think you want Him back, it may be too late. His Spirit may not respond to your despairing cries. Christ died to make you a New Creature. Flee the devil & all his horrible witches & the like. They may have a limited power but their time on earth is very limited !!! – 9/22/22

Act 16.16

“…a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us,

which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:”

Faith is seated in the understanding as well as in the will.

It has an eye to see Christ as well as a wing to fly to Christ.

I do not mind seeing a man with a degree of self-confidence (as long as I don’t see “cockiness” L). But oh, to see men – younger & older – who are walking so close to God that they have confidence, yea, UTTMOST confidence in the Lord & in the Word of the Lord. God can use human confidence (parents should encourage this to some extent). It’s sad to see a man devoid of self-confidence. The great LACK of modernity are souls not trusting God: with their lives, their marriages & yes, their deaths. – 9/24/22

The Scripture is to be its own interpreter or rather the Spirit speaking in it; nothing can cut the diamond but the diamond; nothing can interpret Scripture but Scripture.”   – Richard Watson
