Gal 1.14

[Paul] “…profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.”


You can’t return to the OT. Any attempt to do so is Role Playing. Such make-believe rites “select” what part of the OT they’ll act out. It’s impossible to again be in the OT. Peter, a Jew who became the leading Christian of his hour, flatly stated that Jews hadn’t been “…able to bear…” their yoke (Act 15.10). The OT is over (except for some prophetic passages). Friend, don’t be miss-led by “Hebrew Roots” or its kin.

Some have hardly left home county/province. Others have had to, or depending on your personality, been privileged to see lands & seas far away. Even if you’ve visited every continent, I can safely tell you, your greatest trip (& mine) lies ahead. If travel has been “your thing” you’ve known departure dates & locations. You’ve known dates & locations for returns. This greatest trip has no, repeat NO, departure date/locale. What’s more astounding, it has no return. When we leave we’re not coming back. Are. You. Ready? 3/23/18




Boy meet girl, thinks he loves her.

And finds her so very sweet.

Girls meets this boy, sees great traits,

Finds him impossible to beat.


They walk, they sing, they talk, and things ring

In their ears, like a wedding bell.

One day he finally asks, “Will you marry me?”

She says, “My answer’s ‘Yes,’ could you tell?”


Then on to life, living together,

Each for the other, and for the Lord.

Raising a family for His glory

Disciplined by His great Word.


Ah, God’s plan has again

Been fulfilled on the earth.

Man has a good wife and

Together there’s more worth.

Jam 4.17

“…To him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin.”


It is one thing to have a deep desire to see God move, & to want to be a part of that advancement. It is entirely another thing to have a desire to be KNOWN as a “mover & shaker.” God can (very well may) use the first type. Carnality lies at the heart of the second. He may /say/ things “moved,” may imagine he felt things “shake.” but unless he gets rid of carnality, he’ll not see God in peace (Heb 12.14).
