Common Rod + + + +

To the sinner (who is very much “at home” in the world), the saint (to whom “this world is not my home”) is written off as unimportant. The saint is ignored & when not ignored he/she is seen as amusing or is even mocked.  The saint with God’s grace can handle this.  He knows the end is coming & “the meek shall inherit the earth.”

“Common” Rod

Moses had a famous rod,

Ordinary “pole” – – – till God

Blessed it in the hand of Moses,

Ending all that God opposes.

“Common” becomes great at God’s nod!

DISCERNMENT  

We’re all traveling a road of no return.

We all need wisdom to discern

The right from the left, the wrong from the right;

To avoid tripping in the gathering night.

The worst form of air pollution is audible cursing. It contaminates the speaker’s immediate atmosphere, is unpleasant to those who have to hear, and many times it’s associated with anger. But this air pollution does not remain on earth. God knows about it too.

“There is nobody of literature in the world which enjoys such a wealth of good textual attestation as the New Testament.”

One of the worst problems with the truck-load of “bible translations” is how they have hurt Bible Memorization. With a new “translation” appearing every “whip-stitch” one cannot keep changing his memorization. Please – even if you “must” read some lesser version – do all your memorization from the Classic KJB. You will not have to worry about It changing.

2Pe 1.5b-7

“…add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;

And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;

And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.”

Be very careful what “media” you defend as a means of “spreading the Gospel.” Christ used words. His Father used words.  The Holy Spirit used words. It could be argued God chose His “media” for spreading the Good News when He inspired “…it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe” (1Co 1.21).  (Modern “churches” may employ “christian” rock, stage actors, film, clowns, ventriloquists, comedians, sports/hollywood “stars” etc. to draw crowds – do not assume Christ is in any of this – the antichrist may be readying his false “church” via carnal attractions.)
