Heb 9.27

“…It is appointed unto men once to die,

but after this the judgment:”

 

Believers of every cult/sect/religious-stripe die. No exceptions! After that they go through the portal of death. How they lived on this side the door (& believed in Christ or did not believe Him & His Word) decides where they go on the other side the door.  Remember Jesus said, “…I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (Joh 14.6).

– eab, 3/8/18

 

“I give light by being myself consumed.”

Inscribed on the tomb of Adam Clarke – along with a carved “burning candle.”

 

CHANGELESS ONE

Miles and years separate us

From the place where He was born.

We wear clothing, different

Than He would have worn.

Customs and nations have seen

And had their change;

But Christ is eternal,

Not affected by time or range.

Yes, He’s the eternal Son of the living God.

Eternal, without a beginning, living of forever,

Without an ending, changeless One.

Yes, He’s the ever living, loving Son.

– eab, March 1972

 

Php 4.11

“…I have learned, in whatsoever state I am,

therewith to be content.”

 

Some want to own a mammoth yard, or manicured farmette, or sprawling ranch a-n-d have the money to do so. Don’t envy. They get to pay the huge sale price or get to make monthly installments. They get to send yearly taxes. They get to buy the 5’ wide lawnmower or the multiple tools to upkeep the farmette or the miles of posts, fence etc for the ranch. Let them do that. You can walk-by, ride your bike by, slowly drive by, & enjoy all-the-above FREE. It’s a great day when figure out you don’t have to own IT, to enjoy IT!

– eab, 3/8/18

just as church is for the elders.”

When you’re tired of contemporary, [1]

And modern has grown old.

When society has failed to do

For you, as it had told.

When you realize a Man

Over thirty is not “gone.” [2]

Turn to Christ, Who was before the world,

And still lives on!

                – eab, 3/72


[1] Stanza two of poem.

[2] Hippies were saying not to trust anybody over thirty. Christ was thirty.
