Deu 4.2 +

Deu 4.2

“Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you,

neither shall ye diminish ought from it…”

“Every instance of obedience…strengthens us spiritually,

whilst every act of disobedience weakens us.”

– George Mueller

God loves individuality, He “created” individuality & is so wonderfully powerful that He can watch out for every man, woman, child to the ends of the earth! satan is stronger than any human but so much weaker than God, that there is no, hear it, is NO comparison. Ying Yang is not true. God is UN-created – satan is created (therefore puny, there is no comparison). Trust God. Obey God. Resist satan! – 4/8/21

“Let none think that public prayer will make up for closet communion.”

– George Mueller
You looked in the mirror at the “beauty shop” & were pleased with the hair trimmed off. Was God? “Don’t bug me, Bryan, I have longer hair than any of the other women in my family.” Please re-think. The Bible doesn’t speak of woman having “longer” hair – it says “…If a woman have long hair it is a glory to her …”(1Co 11.15). “Ok, Ok, how long is long?” Glad you asked – as long as GOD allows it to grow. – 4/10/21

Help Me Help Them

If they need fed Lord,

               Help me to feed them

If they need led Lord,

               Help me to lead them

If they have hurts Lord,

               Help me to heal them

If they have quirks Lord,

               Help me to feel them.

Become aware of symbols. If you do not recognize an emblem which shows up in a pic or product, you might do a little research. A few symbols/emblems/logos may be “innocent” but I warn you some (many) have been around & been associated with evil. “Look, Bryan, I’ll like what I like regardless of its ‘alleged’ history.” You may try this, but those seeing you use “x” will possibly link you with the wicked past of that sign/mark. “Abstain from all appearance of evil”(1Th 5.22). – 4/10/21  

“The sinner’s conscience is the best reflector

of the Judgment seat, in life & in death.”

– George B Kulp

Rev 16.2

“…There fell a noisome & grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast

& upon them which worshipped his image.”

If you believe what your doctor says you’ll do it. If you don’t, you won’t. Pretty simple.

If you believe what the Bible says you’ll obey It. If you don’t, you won’t. Pretty simple, except some men have been deleting a word here, a verse there from the “translations” until some “Bibles” are not reliable. I urge you to return to the King James Bible. Return today. You can – – – if you will. – 4/10/21

Num 32.23

“…Behold, ye have sinned against the LORD:

& be sure your sin will find you out.”

“None of the fathers of the church

made mention of original sin until Augustine came…”

– Martin Luther

Modernity is cursed with boys who are big but not grown-up; Girls who’ve matured physically but are immature in both soul & mind. And children who are not being taught, living with biological parents who don’t want to teach them. Christ could all the difference on all three levels. God Help Us. – 4/8/21

“…Seeing it[Gospel] is a kind of preaching which makes people angry especially the great & powerful & deep-learned…great courage is necessary & the Holy Ghost to those that intend to preach it.”

– Martin Luther

Your Birth – a man & woman cohabitated, God allowed conception,

Your choice – zero

Your Death – “…It is appointed unto men once to die…”(Heb 9.27),

Your choice – zero

In between Birth & Death you learn of your choice between Heaven or Hell

These is 100% your choice – 100%  – 4/9/21

JOKING

Prophets of old weren’t known for their jokes;

Jokers were found on the stage.

Pastors and other ministerial folks,

Have changed this, in “modern” age.

Elijah was not joking when God’s fire fell,

Consuming fifty-one men.

Nor had he humor confronting the king,

Or other men in deep sin.

– eab,  4/10/07

Your dad, Mrs X, was a well-known preacher, a “household” name within his denomination. You chose to leave the narrow way. You wanted to dress mannish, wear hair shorter than natural, & yes, hang a little “silver/gold” on your body. Dad wouldn’t approve of your present appearance yet, sadly, you want to claim to love the same God dad did. Stop lying to yourself. Stop, I beg you, rejecting the way to heaven. Confess your sins – you can. Believe on Christ – you can. – 4/10/21  

Rom 6.22

“But now being made free from sin & become servants to God,

ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.”

“He…sought & received the gift of sanctifying,

fear-dispelling, joy-bringing power…”

– M W Knapp

Freedom is precious. Many speak of freedom to work, live & worship as they wish. Thank God for such. – I mean Thank Him Right Now – you may live to see these lessen. (Fellow Christians in other lands have lost freedoms.) HOWEVER the greatest freedom is not above – the greatest freedom is to be Living Free From Sin. Many people are in hell who enjoyed physical freedom. No one is in hell (tho perhaps once slaves) who were FREE in Christ. – 4/10/21

“Sham revivals are insipid to the wicked, sickening to the saints,

“…Hear now, ye rebels;

– Wm Law

Your dad has passed away. Your mom is lonely & either she’s said directly or you got a feeling she is open to remarriage. You’re unhappy- – -Your dad “hung the moon”(to use a country expression). I’m sorry you lost that important man out of your life. But, don’t forget, your mom also lost him. They lived together perhaps a lot longer than you lived with him. Love mom enough to check out any potential “boy-friend” you hear about & do not know. But also love mom enough to let go. Easy? No. life is not always easy. Possible? Yes (IMO) with your will-power & God’s help. – 4/6/21    

“Although Sir Walter Scott…was surrounded by a library of 40000 books on his death-bed he said… ‘Bring me the Book’ When asked what book…he replied ‘There is only ONE Book…’”

What do you collect? I know a man who collected 1964 ‘65 ‘66 Ford Pickups – had 30. Knew another man who collected buttons – 50,000 of them. What do you collect? You may say I don’t have money to collect what I’d like to. There’s a “item” you can collect & see the collection grow & grow yet cost you no money. What? You can collect Truth! You read that right TRUTH. Please note I said cost you “no money” – I didn’t say it cost “nothing”- for it will. To collect TRUTH will cost you the loss of *this favorite lie, *that FALSEHOOD, or a myth. Oh, I urge you to collect TRUTH. Start today. – 4/6/21 

WHERE WILL YOU BE

When the undertaker backs his hearse up to your door

And your body is carried out, to enter it never more,

When in a short while friends gather to weep and lament

At how young you were or looked, or how quickly you went.

Where will you be, my friend?

When cards are sent to family or life-long married mate

Cementing in memories: year, month, the circled date

When your son reads the obit, the preacher speaks his part

Trying to give each griever hope, to help a saddened heart.

Where will you be, my friend?

When the long black car winds mid the tombs on yonder hill

And parks beside your grave (near Aunt Jane/Uncle Will)

When a man of God says, “dust-to-dust, ashes-to-ashes”

And salty teardrops cling to men and ladies lashes.

Where will you be, my friend?

When the director hands out roses from atop your casket

Or gives your wife/husband, an especially neat basket

When people file back to cars & leave the grave yard “park”

Going on with life – leaving your life-less body in the dark.

Where will you be, my friend?  

– eab,  4/8/16 

A person may tell you, “I met ___” (a once famous name you know or don’t know). Or they may say, “I could’ve met the famous ___ & wish I would’ve.” You may agree or disagree with their wish. However, let us know – – – we’ll ALL meet the most Famous (said with highest respect) Being of heaven & earth: God Almighty. Meeting Him, if we’ve obeyed Him, will be the greatest Honor OR meeting Him, if we’ve not obeyed Him, will be the greatest dread. “…Prepare to meet thy God…”(Amo 4.12). – 4/8/21

Heb 9.27

“And as it is appointed unto men once to die,

but after this the judgment:”

“Christ…is a lowly peasant Carpenter,

horny-handed, truth-telling, a Servant of servants…”

– Samuel L Brengle

Carnality. Several, if not all of us, have seen a man purposely embarrass his wife or vice-versa.

Carnality. Or we’ve heard a child talk smart-alecky to parents or parent be exceedingly hard on a child. Friend, God has a better way to live. True, we’ll be humans as long as we’re on earth, but we don’t have to carry the weight of Carnality.  “…Jesus…that he might sanctify the people with his own blood,= suffered without the gate”(Heb 12.13). – 4/8/21

“A few times professors of religion…told me I was doing more harm than good. But they were the kind Paul describes ‘who have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof’ & I have followed his command ‘From such turn away.’

Watching a film is a spiritual experience (not using spiritual in a positive way). You’re not “there” but your mind/spirit (I hope not soul but perhaps more than I might think) soul(?) enter into the scene. satan is a spirit (once good, now forever fallen) so he operates in the realm of spiritual things. It makes sense that he would try to imitate the things of God (satan is not a creator, so is confined to the level of imitating). Stop ANY / ALL Addiction to films. – 3/28/21

“The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God & teaches us the way to be happy in this world & in the next. Continue therefore to read it & to regulate your life by its precepts.”

– John Jay
A few days ago his opinion was valued. His word was final. His money was influential. His quotes were praised. None of the above should have been because he was a fake, a hypocrite – today he writhes in hell. “Bryan, of whom do you write?” I write of no man in particular but of *too many* in general. Too many leaders, preachers, speakers are selling for far more than they are worth. People did not pay enough attention to the “fruit” of their lives, the occasional foul word, the face which flared in carnal anger, the second look he took at a woman not his wife. Look to Jesus. Do NOT put men on pedestals. – 4/4/21  

DEEP RUBY  

The sun had heated the wrinkled skin

And precious warmth instilled within,

               With seemingly no outward result.

But inside the movement of sap

Permeated the cells (as roads a map)

               It was the renewed sunshine’s “fault.”

The sap came up from the deepest root

To the farthest, round, diminishing shoot,

               In action and time, like each spring.

Running by day, and stopping by night,

Then, again continuing its insistent flight,

               To the tune that the robins sing.

Then at last appeared the bud, deep red.

On the tree that last winter looked so dead;

               But now it stands, awake from its nap.

On upper branches the buds opened wide,

Revealing the tender green hid inside,

               Oh, the wonderful power of sap.       

– eab,  Apr. 1966 

Deception abounds today. satan deceived Eve in the Garden & he’s repeatedly used deception across  centuries but I doubt there’s been a age more deceived than ours. Is there hope to keep from being tricked? Yes, Praise God there is. Buy a Bible. Put yourself on a schedule to read from the Bible everyday. Have a pad (or computer file open) to write down ideas, note connections, ask questions. You eternal soul’s safety depends so much on YOU not being deceived. Get serious with God. – 4/5/21

“…so-called churches,

Joh 17.19

“And for their sakes I sanctify myself,

that they also might be sanctified through the truth.”

The marriage of one man to one wife, for life is God’s plan. (I’m sorry for former students/parishioners who suffered the disruption of marriage.) God – tongue in cheek – “walked Eve down the aisle to Adam.” Christ (absolutely no tongue-in-cheek) did His first miracle at a wedding, thus putting approval upon the union of man & woman. The Sanction of both the Father & the Son explains why satan has fought marriage. The devil has urged sex before marriage, he’s pushed sex with someone else while married, & he’s helped to break up couples. Recognize his sly ways & totally reject his voice. – 4/5/21

“The LORD make his face shine upon thee

& be gracious unto thee”

“…To be unresponsive to the call of the Spirit to get sanctified is a particularly serious sin

—…You cannot reject God on this line…& be a Christian.”

– Warren  C McIntire

STOP. Stop excusing your sin. No, you do not have to sin. You want to sin. You’re enjoying it.

STOP your prayerlessness. Make, remodel, designate yourself a Prayer Closet. Now, go in & weep.

STOP running with compromisers. “But they’re intellectuals.” Oh? They’re not smart enough to mind God!

STOP being “ashamed of the gospel of Christ.” Paul was smarter than us & he was not unashamed.

STOP being ashamed of holiness separation, ashamed of modest skirts, ladies with long hair & no TV.

“Outbreaking sin comes after you are backslidden. Backsliding is a matter of quarreling with God over some issue – It is a matter of disobedience.”

– Warren C McIntire
If you’re a Christian allow me to urge you: live clean. The enemies of Christ tend to point out the short-comings of saints. This is very likely to increase as the age slopes to its end. Men, don’t be alone long with a man other than a close relative. Do not travel days together, sleep in the same bed etc. (Same applies to women with women). Men don’t be alone with a woman who is not closely related, unless your wife is there. satan (& helpers) will lie but give them no shred of truth upon which to build a falsehood. – 4/3/21

HATCHED – BORN, TO BE

A duck I saw on yonder “pond,”

Of being a duck, I hope he’s fond;

Cause that’s what he was hatched to be,

He’ll be a duck o’er land, o’er sea,

Until the day he dies.

One’s “born again” to be a saint,

Living for Christ has no complaint,

A Christian’s like Christ – thus he is born,

And tells it (like the duck with his “horn”)

Until the day he dies.

– eab,  4/2/07

Never lie. “Even to preserve life?” Never lie. A very tragic thing would be to “preserve” physical life at the loss of your soul. “I can lie to save a life & *then ask God to forgive me.” This assumes 2 dangerous points: 1.) It assumes God will be ‘at your beck & call’ i.e. that you can ask God to forgive you anytime & that He’s obligated to do it – please don’t  presume on the Lord. 2.) It assumes that you’ll live long enough to get right with God: you may not. Never lie! – 4/3/21

Is it time for you to walk in the Light? Is this the yr you stop going to the “sun-rise service”? Once I didn’t see they were connected to ancient sun-worship. Once (more, maybe?) I sang at a “sun-rise service” not realizing how un-christian they were. satan has used cults to mix “christianity” (there’s no question CHRIST CAME BACK TO LIFE) with a paganism (sun-worship is wrong, Wrong). I urge you to not go tomorrow. (One church I pastored had a “sun-rise service” *without* me.) – 4/3/21

Young Wife (or older wife, for that matter) – you have a husband who wants to go with God. He tries to pray with you & the children. He wants to do right in business & in the home. “But, I’m embarrassed when he says ‘Amen’ in church.” Sister, you should not be. This is the quietest world you’ll ever live in. Get closer to God. And thank the Lord you have a man who loves God. – 3/30/21

Some things I post I could wish expressed in a country pulpit here or a village chapel there. Other stuff could be said in a classroom. A few things I try to post would be nice to say to you, as we enjoy porch chairs (yours or mine J). And now & then comes an idea that might fit a walk-in-the-woods where we’re both scanning nature & sort-a-thinking-out-loud. Please read them – not to be offended. Read them – not to see their flaws. Hopefully a little light bulb flickers occasionally. Enjoy that moment & “Give God the Glory” – quote from Jimmy Willis (original Kingfish) from a 1957 chapel. – 3/31/21

To accept the idea of Christ dying on “Friday” (modern calendar) is to rather blindly agree with roman tradition AND is to totally ignore the ONE sign Jesus Himself gave. “But he answered & said unto them An evil & adulterous generation seeketh after a sign & there shall no sign be given to it but the sign of the prophet Jonas. For as Jonas was three days & three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days & three nights in the heart of the earth”(Mat 12.39-40). – 4/2/21

Christ was nailed to cross the 4th day (“Thursday” as our calendars say) & He spent the 1st night in the earth.

He was dead all the 5th day (“Friday” per our present calendars) & then He spent the 2nd night in the earth.

He was dead all the 6th day (“Saturday” as modern weeks have it) & then He spent the 3rd night in the earth.

Christ arose third day of His saga but FIRST DAY of the week = nite|DAY|nite|DAY|nite|DAY (Mat 12.40)

Don’t just read words of a quote – see WHO the author really is. There are wolves here. Social media has a down side but when a quote showed up from a character I wanted to know more about ‘twas easy to find him & then see a blurb (intended to make him look good) but which told me all I needed to know.

Parents.  Please don’t allow your child to *be addicted* to games: board games, cards, electronic games. For relaxing times, have books (you should pre-read all books) available. Be ready also to go for a walk with the younger ones (for protection & instruction) & with older ones (for instruction & companionship). If your child becomes addicted to a game – “Has to play it every day” – pray before you talk to them. Explain addiction, & then remove the game for a month or perhaps forever. 4/1/21

Some people who may’ve thought they were “thinkers,” weren’t thinking True thoughts. They were not seekers after True but were in some (many?) cases seeking to find a way ‘round Truth. They were trying to establish themselves (or their “school of thought”) separate from the Lord Jesus Christ. He said of Himself, “…I am the way, the truth & the life…”(Joh 14.6). True Truth-seekers (if/when they get honest) will move toward Him, & if they obey & Believe Him, will find Christ, the source of Truth. – 3/31/21

Gen 1.17

“And God set them [sun, moon, stars] in the firmament of the heaven

to give light upon the earth”

Wish I could remember the yr but sometime in school I “learned” the sun was an alleged “93,000,000” mi. away. Was also taught nearest star was “4.3 light yrs” away. I apparently didn’t have enough sense to question these “technical” measurements – given without proof – they expected me to bite. As an adult I’ve begun (finally) to see part of their method. When “science” makes the figure “odd” it sounds more like they *really know.* More of “astronomy” is philosophy than science. BTW, Copernicus had the sun 3,391,200 mi from us. Doubt “science falsely so called”(1Ti 6.20) – 4/1/21

ATTENTION: you don’t wear gold/pearls (or substitutes for them). WHY do you listen to people sing or play religious music with them? “Bryan, you’re being picky.” I doubt I am.

Want to home school but are a bit leery? That’s understandable. Afraid you’ll get weary? You may tire of home schooling. Is home schooling only for certain parents? Doubt that idea – doubt it strongly. That lad is your lad, to try to get to heaven. That lass is your lass, to try to get to heaven. To teach them at home can be the key to them making *heaven their Home.* You can’t do this by yourself – you need Christ’s power. A Christian parent makes the very BEST home school Dad/Mom. Please yield all to Him. – 3/28/21

WHY SPRING?

The grand Lord knew, after the white and the blue,

Of the cold, crisp fortnights of chill,

After stark star lights and short day sights,

And iced over bridges at the bottoms of the hill,

After sleet’s solid rain and the snow flakes again,

And the humdrum of life in confinement;

That man needed to sing – he needed spring –

The Lord’s annual perfection of refinement.     

– eab,  3/29/80

He Arose!  This Lord’s Day in history?  I’d hate to have the job of trying to prove it was THIS calendar date** – but I have full confidence Christ arose on *that* First Day, *that* First LORD’S DAY. He could have arisen on the jewish 7th day (sabbath ). He did not. He was establishing a new way to heaven, His way, the Christian Walk. His resurrection on the Lord’s Day (Rev 1.10) is what we can celebrate 52 times a yr. 

** More than one calendar’s been “floated” in history. Who’s to say if this “man-made schedule” fits with God’s great time Piece in Heaven? That being said, if we accept this calendar as being somewhat right, then we can accept that Christ arose on the first day of the week or properly, The Lord’s Day. – 3/28/21

THINK (please).  Is your goal to be Biblical or traditional? The roman system established many traditions. Sadly with silence in pulpits, traditions have increased among evangelicals, even holiness people. I saw the following list – it is almost entirely tradition. “Palm Sunday, Holy Monday, Holy Tuesday, Holy Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday, Resurrection Sunday.” I hope you see that only 3 of these 16 words are Biblical: palm, holy, & resurrection. – 3/29/21

Please, as the age slopes toward an end & as you age yourself, allow me to say “Simplify life.” Do not demand fancy foods but be happy with more simple ones. Do not make dressing more complicated but dress in a plainer style. Do not hunt after complicated movies: hollywood/disney/supposed “christian” – consider leaving the entire movie industry alone.

There is not ONE reason why, if you can read, that you can’t read the King James Bible. Not one! The Authentic, Authorized Version (BTW same as the KJV) has been read by mere children, by youth, by adults. It’s been read by sinners, by sinners seeking to become saints, & read by untold millions of saints. It’s been read by native English speakers, by those learning English (as their second language) & by people with linguistic skills. You can read the KJV aka AV, and – – –  you should.  3/27/21

Please Dad/Mom, do nothing to encourage your son to be feminine. Nothing. Do nothing to push your daughter the least toward being masculine. Nothing. satan is anti-God & that includes God making the Male & the Female. This was not an accident. This was not an afterthought. The sexes are not many (silly humans – too “light” a word but some-what appropriate here) nor are the sexes one. They are two. While the earth remaineth there will be two sexes. Help your son become a man; your daughter a lady. 3/27/21

Guard against pride. Pride is anti-God (He – not you – is the source of all). satan would like for you to be proud of your looks (be ye nice looking or not), proud of your brain (be ye brilliant or less), & yes, even proud of your spirituality (though you may be average or below). Ask God, beg God to remove pride out of your life.  3/27/21  

“…God has…For the eye there is light; for the ear there is sound;

for hunger there is bread; for thirst there is water…”

“And the LORD said unto Moses, Whosoever hath sinned against me

him will I blot out of my book.”

“All that the world knows of practical godliness

it has to learn from the lives of Christians.”

– George B Kulp

Years ago the question was raised in my mind, “is USA in prophecy”? It is not named in Daniel (as are Babylon [ch.1-5&7, Grecia [ch.8,10,11], Media [ch.8], & Persia [ch.8,10,11]. At least twice in fairly recent days I’ve run across the idea that USA is the 2nd beast in Rev.13. This was not stated, but USA may head up the new world order (the United Nations headquarters is already in NYC). Be watchful. Be prayerful. Be reading God’s Words. Be reading It with notes. – 3/22/21

“Conscience is the book in which our daily sins are written

& time never effaces the record”

The One we Christians worship is the Lord. The Lord Jesus came back to life the 1st day of the week. Please honor Him by calling the day LORD’S DAY. After all, It is His Day. Please stop saying “sunday.” I fear that who ever called the 1st day of the week sunday worshipped the sun. I do not – I doubt that you do. So why should we repeatedly honor the sun by calling a certain day after it. [BTW in typing this pagan name my spell check more than once made “s” into “S” automatically.] – 3/22/21

HEATHER

Heather Colwell Bryan’s the name.

If that seems odd, Dad and Mom are to blame.

Heather is some kind of wild flower, I guess,

To be a botanist, you see, I don’t profess,

But that’s what they call me just the same.

Colwell I know a bit more about;

Pop’s Mom was one, that much I’ve found out.

Good people.  Those Colwells,

Though some I’ve not met,

The girls changed their name (Uncle John hasn’t yet.)

Believe I’ll keep mine for all of life’s route.

My last name’s just like William Jennings Bryan.

(All three would be, if I’d been a boy – no lyin’.)

So there you have it, my names complete,

Until at the altar (D.V.) my husband I meet.

And that’s too far away now for sighin’ and cryin’.

“Easter is a convergence of three traditions. Pagan…Hebrew…Christian…the Hebrew Passover falls on any day of the week and this did not suit the Christians. They wanted a Holy Week…at Nicaea they had to decide who was to manage the full moon…this was referred to Alexander, the citadel of astronomy…based, not on observation of the moon in the sky, but on mathematics and many cycles were tried…8 years…19 years…84 years…” – Encyclopedia American, 1963. 

Rev 2.16

“Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly,

& will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.”

“If we are believing & obedient,

feeling or no feeling, we have Jesus…”

One Being leads the God-centered church service. He can direct the pastor with opening welcome & prayer. He can lead the song leader to select this hymn, not that. He can prompt old Bro So-n-So to stand & praise the Lord or younger Sis What’s-her-Name to sing her testimony. He can have prepared Bro Pastor to present the very teachy/preachy thoughts which fit the configuration of that meeting (but those thoughts wouldn’t have “worked” last Lord’s day at all). The “order” of the service when the Spirit is leading is superb; never boring. It’s refreshing in a heavenly way. O God give us more of these.  3/22/21

“ ‘I can’t believe’ is simply a canting way

of saying ‘I wont obey.’ ”
