Psa 24.4 +

Psa 24.4

“He that hath clean hands & a pure heart; who hath not

lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.”

“The man who will not act until he knows all,

will never act at all.”

– Jim Elliot

If a word – regardless of what the “word” is – is not in the Bible (I speak of the Classic Authorized) it’s fair to examine *said word. Is it automatically wrong to use? Not necessarily. Men have added modern words (mechanical, medical, etc.) but the fact that “word” is not included (IMO) opens it to questioning. “What’s the point?” Christians use (thoughtlessly, perhaps?) “universe” (from Latin & Cicero). God’s Word uses “Heaven and Earth” (over 30 times). I like God’s words better than Cicero’s – 10/10/22        

Unwillingness to accept God’s ‘way of escape’ from temptation,

frightens me what a rebel yet resides within.”

HYMNS. 1. The first hymns were Psalms (as I understand). Later a few men/women began to write verses speaking the deep struggles & high hopes of their walk with God. Some of these began to be sung in their house of worship. Later a man (poet or at least a man who appreciated poetry) collected these lines of verse. Some of the early “hymnals” mere where multiplied pages of poems without one note of music. This is strange to the modern mind, but they held the meat of songful worship. – 10/17/22 


When God finds a man who’s willing

And hungry for holy filling

He fills him, like water jars, up to the brim!

God is never known for failing,

Nor “short,” nor unavailing,

When a man is sold  all out  to Him.

Do not allow satan the slightest foothold in your home. This means, among several things, avoiding devilish “halloween” with any of its hideous trappings. Your house should have no sheets hanging from trees (supposed ghost), no “skeletons” resting on you porch, no huge “spider” & its pretend “web” on shrubbery, no jack-o-lantern (why would you waste a good pumpkin?), no witch “splattered” into an electric pole. Please, even if you are not YET a christian avoid such satanic connections. – 10/24/22

Deu 18.10

“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,

“A man without Christ has his roots only in his own times

& his fruits as well.”

Dear Ladies. Be feminine! Please dress like a Lady. I beg you wear your glorious hair as a classy Lady. Walk like a Lady. Talk just as a Lady should & does. Your family will like it. Your church will appreciate it. Your feeble nation needs it. “God, give us more Ladies: As single women (young or not so young), As wives-to-be, As wives, As mothers-to-be, As mothers, As grandmas & great grams.” – 10/24/22

“Faith makes life so even, gives one such confidence,

that the words of men are as wind.”
