1Ti 3.2a & 3

“A bishop then must…Not [be] given to wine, no striker,

not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;”


“It seems that the thing that people are most afraid of over the country is that supernatural, unearthly, indefinable, indescribable presence of the Living God..\”

– Glenn Griffith


Psa 134.3 The LORD that MADE Heaven and Earth bless thee out of Zion.

God made Heaven, Earth, World # 16


“The glory of God brings a burden for souls.”

– Glenn Griffith



A wedge of gold – security.

Silver coinage – some currency.

A coat from Babylon, warped it up.

Paltry things thus did him corrupt,

Foolish loss of eternity!

Psa 100.2

“Serve the LORD with gladness: come before his presence with singing.”


I hope your worship services are superb & that you’re able to enjoy each phase of worship as you proceed. However, I’m aware such is not always the case. If a section (or two) of the service is not to your liking ask God to help you worship Him to your highest ability in the better sections. Worship Him via the hymns. Praise & adore (as well as implore) Him during prayer. Revel in the reading of His Word. Listen for a nugget of truth (in perhaps a not so-good-sermon). See the best & (if need be) ignore the rest. Blessings!

“…Is there a suggestion here that a greater than Joseph who was not recognized by His brethren when they saw Him the 1st time will be acknowledged by them as their anointed deliverer when they see Him the 2nd time?”

D& R (divorce/remarriage) has been defended & warned against. (Sadly, some I fear, take comfort in saying, “Well, there’re good men on both sides.”) You could spend weeks doing reading about this position or that argument. They are opinions. Man, if you marry a divorce woman (lady, if you marry a divorced man) you aren’t dealing with opinions, you’re dealing with your never-dying soul. Better to die single (or a widow/widower) as to face God’s wrath by marrying an illegitimate mate. Life is short – Eternity is long.
