Gal 5.22-23a +

Gal 5.22-23a

“…The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

“Meekness, temperance…”

 

“…Staying in the secret place long enough

to get acquainted with God…”

– Bob Lands

 

Men have tried various feats: walking, riding, climbing, boating, swimming, from point “A” to “B” on earth. They’ve been acclaimed by others & perhaps bragged about it themselves. The greatest of all great feats are the humble souls who’ve set out to walk from earth to heaven with God. Men may not notice this (do not WANT to notice this – it condemns their own lives). They praise the Lord as they go on, & go up & will praise Him forever for the greatest walk – the walk from earth to glory. – 5/25/20

 

“Pride-spending money that’s not yours, to buy things you don’t need,

to impress people, you don’t like.”

– D R Matherly

 

There is One Person you can fully trust – God. Have you met Him? Do you spend time with Him? Are you getting acquainted with the Father, Son, & Holy Spirit via His Word? Do not trust any church (or church leader) 100%. Do not trust any government (or government leader) 100%. Same applies to a school, business, family leader. Become a whole-hearted follower of Christ, learn to recognize His voice, love Him with all your heart. Stop following people – Start following the Lord. You will NEVER be sorry. – 6/12/20

 

OUR God/Man

After a conception that was “One of a kind,”

Christ developed in an ordinary womb.

And, after a “trial” that was mockery – – – defined,

Christ was placed in a temporary tomb.

What an exceptional God/Man!

– eab, 6/14/16

 

Pardon you Sir, Pardon you ma’am – you profess to love Jesus yet posted a meme with a 4-letter word? No political message, No pro-this guy/anti-that guy words are worth YOU lowering yourself to use language Jesus wouldn’t have used. Repent. And – – – if need be, stop posting. Amen? Ouch? – 6/14/20

 

“He can make the Bible the chief of books in the home…novels & other trashy literature will go into the fire; instead of ‘jigs & jazz’ & worldly singing…‘Jesus Lover of My Soul…’”

Gen 2.8

“And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden…”

 

Planted a garden this year? Good. Hope you thoroughly enjoy the fresh leaf, “fruit” & root veggies as they mature. Plan to can, freeze, or dry some? Seeing a garden’s plants is a treat. Eating the product of the plants is even better. If anything is better yet, it could be, knowing your cellar, freezer, or attic space has a supply of food as a leaf falls & the garden slumps to a close. God made all plants & made them for us to enjoy. Don’t let this be (God willing) your last year to live better because of a patch of vegetables. – 6/14/20

 

“Every one of us has sufficient influence to lead souls

Godward & heavenward or sinward & hellward.”

Gal 5.22-23a +

Gal 5.22-23a

“…The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness, temperance…”

 

“Before we can get sinners scared of hell,

we will have to get scared as Christians.”

– V O Agan, ’55 Conf. Sermon

 

An individual told my wife (first-hand info) that they attended “x” church for about 1.5 yrs before realizing it was a “holiness” church. How utterly sad! Apparently in a year & a half, no songs (congregational or special) carried the message of heart purity. It seems no saints testified that once they were proud or struggled with anger, or were jealous but the Holy Spirit removed these & they are so happy that He did. And, most sadly perhaps, the minister(s) did not preach one clear sermon exposing the horrid traits of carnality or extolling Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, etc. – 5/26/19

 

“What greater enemy could exist than carnality?

How can we serve Him in holiness unless the interior enemy is destroyed?”

– V O Agan, ’55 Conf. Sermon

 

HE IS YOUR ANSWER

If you are hungering, you can be fed.

If you’re wandering, you can be led.

If weary, Christ has rest, therefore “a bed.”

Leery of the world? Good! Do as Jesus said. – eab, 5/30/19

 

God is all powerful – the gov. is pushing to become more powerful.

God sees all – gov. camera’s are seeing more & more of our lives.

God wants us to depend on Him – the gov. wants us to depend on it.

Make sure to obey God. “…We ought to obey God rather than men”(Act 5.29). – 5/26/19

 

Act 5.29

“Then Peter & the [other] apostles answered & said,

‘We ought to obey God rather than men.’”

 

Some are convinced that “So-n-So” is a Christian based on their kindness & ignore their life-style, or appearance. Have you not met a guy/gal who is not easily riled? (There are people who were raised or have trained themselves to under-react.) It’s nice to work with “cool” people but such levelness, such consideration doesn’t make them Christian. Every man/woman must be born again, i.e. made a New Creature by the Power of the blood of Jesus Christ. – 5/24/19

 

“…Is it not reasonable to suppose that a Christian education should have no other end but to teach youth how to think & judge & act & live according to the strictest laws of Christianity?”

– Wm Law /Serious Call…Life/

 

There is a marked silence in pulpits (church/college/camps) about the Roman catholic system. Once, we heard of their errors. Now, I fear, many youth almost see them as another denomination: Baptist, Methodist, or Presbyterian; they’re far from it. A book that led to this is /Kingdom of the Cults/, Walter Martin & Ravi Zacharias, which doesn’t list the R.C. as a cult. The Roman system calls a man “holy father” – – – what Jesus called God, (Joh 17.11), it believes one must be R.C. to go to heaven, & has many rituals. These point toward cultishness. This is not aimed at any person, but at a false system. – 5/19/19

 

“…The world by professing Christianity is so far from being a less dangerous enemy than it was before that it has by its favors destroyed more Christians than ever it did by the most violent persecution…”

– Wm Law /Serious Call…Life/
