Gen 22.8

“…Abraham said,

‘My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering’ so they went both of them together.”


Do not be enthralled with numbers. A number means nothing by itself. 2. Two what? 2 bottles? 2 benches? 2 beans? Men have “played” with numbers, found a pattern(s) in them. Have made a science (imaginary science?) of them but devoid of words they are void of meaning. There even seems to be a connection (how strong I cannot say) between math & magic. Happy contrast; words do not need numbers. Bottles, benches, beans all tell you something. And best of all Jesus is the Word! – 1/11/20


“Light & foolish talking & jesting, pride, oversensitiveness…jealousy, envy, selfish ambition…indulgence of appetite…(will surely quench the spirit of prayer)…”

– Samuel L Brengle



If you feel at home in Egypt’s “clime,”

Happy to give it your energy and time,

Not minding its sin, yes, and slime;

Then you’re a poor, lost sinner, My Friend.


If you’re out of sin but wand’ring wild,

Out of sin, but very much a child

Wanting religion – Please “keep it mild.”

Then you’re a carnal Christian, My Friend.


If you’ve approached Jordan at high tide,

Have, by faith, crossed its waters, floody and wide

And know now the Spirit doth abide,

You’re a holy believer, My Friend.


Is there more to this Egypt-toward-Canaan walk?

Yes, circle Jericho, circle without talk

And by all means, avoid Achan’s balk

There is growth in Canaan land, My Friend.

(con’t) “…Love of the applause of men & desire for the honour that man can give, an uncharitable spirit, criticism…will surely quench the spirit of prayer.”

– Samuel L Brengle


Please do not send your child to any self-defense class (several, if not all, seem to have oriental roots) until you’ve prayed about it a full month – until you’ve fasted several meals, seeking God’s will on this – until you’ve researched the history behind that particular type of “fighting without weapons.” The mind should not be opened (in any way) to occult powers. It is your child, your most precious possession (not counting your soul). He should never (IMO) be introduced to heathen defense. 1/13/20


Psa 7.10

“My defence is of God,

which saveth the upright in heart.”


[under caption You are God’s Property]

“He has a right of occupancy…

He has the right of identification…”

– L D Wilcox


Bibles have been collected & burned. But you can hide a part of yours in your heart. Bibles are being shortened, becoming replaced by paraphrases. You can know the true wording & not be confused by lesser, & unworthy mistranslations. You could also lose your eyesight. If you’ve memorized God’s Word you can “see” it perfectly in your mind. One more? You might say “I can always listen to it on an electronic device.” That’s an assumption. EMP (from enemy nation or God) is possible. 1/13/20


“Man’s departure from God was voluntary;

his return must likewise be voluntary.”

“And Abraham said, ‘My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering:’

“God never compares you with anyone.”

– Steve Stetler


Act 4.24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to GOD with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art GOD, which hast MADE Heaven, and Earth, and the Sea, and all that in them is:

God made Heaven, Earth, World # 34


“…Those ardent’ ‘shoutings’ which have attended Meth. in all parts of the world,

broke spontaneously from the assembled thousands who wept around him.”

– Able Stevens



Can you come across too strong

Against some “new” wrong?



Can you appear to be too light

For explicit Right?


– eab, 1/19/13



Psa 100.4

“Enter into his gates with thanksgiving & into his courts with praise:

be thankful unto him & bless his name.”


“Thank you.” How often do those words cross you lips? If you weren’t raised to say Thank You “almost automatically” (howbeit sincerely) you were failed at that point. Be encouraged though – you can train yourself to say “Thank you” with eyes smiling & body language to match. Thankfulness is a wonderful trait – become a grateful person.

– eab, 1/10/19


“If men be good, governments cannot be bad.”

– Wm. Penn


When you see compromise or backsliding (in person or on social media) don’t let it anger you – let it burden you. (Sinners can be angry at certain deviations & grossness.) Let the sight of such be sadden you & send you to prayer for these benighted hearts.

– eab, 1/9/19


“Humility seeks not the last word, not the first place.”

Translation Trouble – Gen 22.8

AV “And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering: so they went both of them together.”

NKJV – And Abraham said, My son, God will provide _for_ Himself the lamb for a burnt offering. So the two of them went together


This NKJV verse removes the prophetic element – moderns do not respect prophecy as they should.
