Exo 32.6

“…And the people sat down to eat and to drink,

and rose up to play.” [ so like America ]

 

Please friend, so live NOW that you can later “re-live” your memory-scenes with pleasure. I’ve tried to pastor in 5 states & Canada, and teach in 3 states (more than once in 2 of those). I fondly remember my praying places both while pastoring & teaching. I am not saying I’ve been a great prayer, but am so thankful for the place(s) in each locality where God condescended to meet His unworthy servant. -1/27/20

 

“The only hope of the drunkard or the thief is 1st in the birth of the Spirit, & 2nd in the baptism with the Holy Ghost & fire. This is the only remedy. This will make an honest man out of a rascal & a sober man out of a drunkard. The nature of man must be cleansed and purified.”

– Uncle Buddy Robinson

 

DEAD?

When you & I are stretched out stiff & cold,

And the soul has left its God-shaped mold,

And questions spread among friend & foe

How long was he sick? How did he go?

When was he born? Was he *that* old?

We’ll not hear this twitter, not one word

If we’ve lived for Him (That was His choice.

He invited us to, if we but heard His voice.)

We’ll have heard the greatest words e’er said,

“Well done.”

Oh, I want to hear them, when you think I’m dead.

“No one will ever go into despair

while he feels God cares for him.”

– B T Roberts

 

It sounds too horrible to be true but satan is pushing his dupes toward reducing world population. Armies have killed other armies for millennia: blade, bullet, bomb. Evil men have massacred unarmed groups for centuries. Sadly, in recent decades even “members of health care” have killed the unwanted, the unhealthy, the un-young. All the while God’s words to Noah & sons to “…Multiply & replenish the earth”(Gen 9.1) haven’t been revoked. God says multiply, satan says kill off – true pictures of contrast. 1/28/20

 

Rev 9.11

“…They had a king over them…angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.”

 

A conversion isn’t worth anything unless it’s a double conversion.

A man must be converted from something to something.”

– Sam Jones

 

The devil & his children will deceive you if possible. On one side, they’d like you to believe there are millions upon millions of “christians” (not mentioning the broad definition of “christian”). On the other side, he’d like you to think you’re crazy – hardly anyone believes as you do. He is a liar. Going to heaven is about as individual “as it gets.” Fellowship with whom you can. Be kind to those with whom you can’t fellowship but keep you sights on the Celestial City. God love you & WANTS you with Him. – 1/28/20

 

A man once asked me how long it had been since I had been at a theater. I told him I had not been at the theater since I had quit being a vagabond.”

Exo 32.6 +

Exo 32.6

“…The people [Israelites in rebellion]

sat down to eat & to drink, & rose up to play.”

 

* TRINITY * (2.)

Act 10.38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost & with power: who went about doing good & healing all…

 

“Natural fear is a necessary accompaniment of our mundane existence & is not cast out by perfect love.”

– Adam Clarke, quoted by H A Baldwin, /Holiness & the Human Element/

 

Turning over a “new page” in life can sound good. It smacks of discipline & goals (both readily admired). It doesn’t sound so good when it’s realized one is still in the “same book” i.e. the same life – higher plane/new page, but same life. Christ does not offer a “new page” – He offers (yea demands, to enter heaven) a New Birth (2Co 5.17).

A PRAYER    

Give us ways of worshiping the Master,

Grant us ways.

In these days of rushing ever faster,

Restless days.

Urge us upward through the clamoring din,

Ever onward.

Till upward pulling You bring us in,

To brightest heaven, banished of sin,

To mansions prepared for mere men.

Pull us upward.

 

 

Draw us nearer to Your Father heart,

Bring us nearer.

Become dearer; not farther apart,

Always dearer.

Make my soul a simple scrap of steel,

Work my soul.

Make it sensitive to feel,

The attraction so real

Wood, hay, & stubble from me magnetically peel

Tug on my soul.

I pray Thee let us hear Thy calling voice,

O pray Thee.

 

Let us serve Thee by eternal choice,

Selflessly serve.

Soon tomorrow will beckon in haste,

Timeless tomorrow

Help us so live that when we are faced

With the record we have fixed in place

Our sojourn will not be a useless disgrace,

Has’en tomorrow.

Jer 50.39

“Therefore the wild beasts of the desert with the wild beasts of the islands shall dwell there [Babylon] and the owls shall dwell therein: and it [Babylon] shall be no more inhabited for ever…”

 

Is it OK for a pastor/teacher/parent to say, “I don’t know”? Absolutely! “But, Jesus never did.” Gentle reminder: He was fully Man, but He was also fully God. (Had Jesus Christ said, “I don’t know” some could accuse Him of lying.) Arguably the greatest (definitely one-of-the-greatest) men in the OT, Moses, said (eab words) “I don’t know – I’ll ask God.” Sound advice for any “stumped” pastor/teacher/parent.

“The feeble-minded are people who know the truth but only affirm it so far as consistent with their own interest. But apart from that they renounce it.”

– Blaise Pascal, /Pensees/

 

If you tell me, “I understand God” I have reason to question your honesty or mental balance. If you say similar words about the Holy Spirit, I can have a similar reaction. Jesus Christ, is the Person of the Holy Trinity we come closest to “understanding” (He was/is One of us) but the greatest mind walking the face of earth doesn’t comprehend Him (nor will we in Eternity). Wonderfully, we can adore the Trinity, bless & commune with Them, devote yourself fully to & yes, enjoy Them without understanding Them.
