Psa 101.3 +

Psa 101.3

“I will set no wicked thing before mine eyes:

I hate the work of them that turn aside; it shall not cleave to me.”

“…Wherever there are true ministers of Jesus Christ, it is from the operation of his Spirit

upon their hearts, first purifying them & thus giving them a just sense of the conditions of others.”

– John Woolman

SURVIVE #3. All berries are safe to eat. Not! so! fast! If you KNOW a berry or nut, thank God; eat some. If a berry is there but you have no idea if its edible or not, place 1 between your lower teeth & lower lip & let it stay there (do not eat it) what you judge to be 1 hr. If your lip or gum do NOT sting (a possible sign of poison) allow yourself to eat that one – only that 1 for now. If after another hr your stomach does not reject that 1 berry you may try only a FEW. You’re not going to die of starvation today. Eat no more. – 12/1/22

“…We have found it to be our duty to cease from these national contests [referring to “a disagreement between” England & France] which are productive of misery & bloodshed…”

– John Woolman

SEASON REASON

I’m sure God’s had His reasons

For giving us several seasons;

I love His intense variety.

And yet – yet I’m equally sure

That long before I knew what they were,

Seasons were best for earth & sea & me.

It’s disappointing to see a young lady whose mother doesn’t cut her hair, go to a chop shop & allow a sinner man or worldly woman cut off her God-given glory. Disappointing for mother & disappointing for the young lady – she’ll never again be able to say, “The scissors have never been in my hair.” What is MORE disappointing is when “Mom” gets her long hair sheared. Youth may (hopefully will) come back. Once an adult falls into this un-godly habit, the chances are so slim (IMO) that she’ll return. – 12/4/22

“Things that served chiefly to please the vain mind in people, I was not easy to trade in;

seldom did it; & whenever I did, I found it weaken[ed] me as a Christian.”

– John Woolman

It’s sad to see a young man become addicted to sports – either as a player or as one who wastes time & money traveling to watch a game in person or seeing it on TV. They bowed to the “god of sports.” Young man – raise your sights above, far above ball games. But – – – it’s, if anything, more sad to see a man, even a pastor or school man, slide back into watching & *caring about who wins “what.” Hopefully a youth will drop his worldly ways – a sinning adult is (IMO) less likely to ever get right again. – 12/4/22

Rev 16.13

“…I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon

& out of the mouth of the beast & out of the mouth of the false prophet.”

If you have followed a Prophecy Preacher, attended his lectures, watched all his videos, agreed with much/all his pod casts I strongly encourage you to stop. Please either quit him entirely or give yourself a long & I mean long, break from a one-man view. Pick up a Bible (no footnotes, no interpretative paragraphs) & read the Word FOR ITSELF. The guy you’ve listened to may be partly right but so wrong elsewhere as to damn your soul. Let the Bible be It’s own Commentary. It IS a fine one. – 12/7/22

“The total absence of humor from the Bible

is one of the most singular things in literature.”

– Alfred North Whitehead
