Psa 84.2 +

Psa 84.2

My soul longeth, yea, even fainteth for the courts of the LORD:

my heart and my flesh crieth out for the living God.”

“You can tell a false prophet not so much by what he preaches

 as by what he doesn’t preach.”

– V O Agan

When you see a man drawn toward money – he likes a flashy outfit, attention-getting-shoes, always drives expensive cars – distance yourself from him. Or, he may not do much of this list but he wants to buddy-buddy with rich men; avoid him. The guy who loves money may pastor, profess in a christian college, head up a group of churches, or run a mission board but he has a problem. Be nice to him, pray for him, but don’t be around him more than necessary. – 11/15/22

“The sanctified Christian can do what he desires

& at the same time, what God requires.

Inland Sea

I serve a God who speaks and all is well.

He spoke and light came here to dwell.

Centuries later He spoke and a blind man saw,

Deaf heard, Lame walked, He healed them all;

Even an inland-stormy sea, lost its swell.

The Vowels of Private Devotions:

A. Private Devotions provide a perfect place for you to ADMIRE God.

E. P.D. (private devotions) help get you close enough to ENJOY God.

I.  In P.D. you (in a One-on-one relationship) are INSTRUCTED by God.

O. P.D. are only successful as you repeatedly OBEY God.

U. Time spent in P.D. affords a better UNDERSTANDING of God. – 11/16/22

The purpose of God is not to make you happy;

The purpose of God is to make you holy.

Dear Brother – pastor, man filling-in till the pastor gets there, head deacon taking the pastor’s place for a day – please (not said unkindly but said with sincerity) if you’re “entertaining” the congregation you’re wasting your time. God called no one, repeat, No One to entertain. But – you’re not only wasting your time, you’re sadly misleading youth to think this is normal & you’re disappointing adults who know it is not. Call the saints to their knees. A prayer meeting might result, which could be memorable. – 11/17/22 

1Ti 6.10

“For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they

have erred from the faith & pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

The amount of bling showing up on sinners bodies is unbelievable. One could nearly think he’s in a heathen culture. Sadly, that’s to what American has dropped. Dad/Mom, don’t allow your at-home-child to be just a step or two behind their sinner cousins. AND if your on-his-own child shows up with bling it seems (IMO) you have 2 choices: 1.) Speak to him (kindly) about how disappointed you are in his “junk” or 2.) Ignore his heathenish body decorations so that your silence is strongly felt. – 11/17/22   

“What is heaven but

an eternal monument to holiness?”
