The devil tries to make you think he’s God

God NEVER tries to make you think He is the devil.

The God of all the universe,

“Writes” beautifully in prose and verse.

His truths appear in perfect rhyme,

But He stoops low to now converse

With the better, and yes, the worse.

Listen, earthling, for His glad chime.

God is so “sure of His sovereignty”


that He invites His creatures to be “fellow creators,”


and doesn’t withdraw that ability to “create”


(art, children, literature, building, music, etc.)


even when men stupidly deny that there IS a Creator.

We can be content IF we are connected



to the Father of Contentment, God




We can be deprived of contentment



by the devilish old devil.

Some men are selling for more than they’re worth,

Some men are selling for less.

They tell you they’re great (not all in mirth);

You won’t even have to guess.

God’s man is either most unknown,

Or not as popular by far,

But all worthy and worthless, have souls.

Popularity with God, does not mar.

God formed hills with curving inclines, [1]

He likes ovals, egg-shapes, and “nearly rounds.”

God made slight bends and flowing lines,

He created “almost flats” and sloping grounds.


Man tries, by human contrast,

To make a perfectly straight string.

Right angles stick to him (too fast)

A wobble is a hated, ugly thing.


A straight line is man’s necessity,

Making it plumb and level too.

The Creator in His infinite variety,

Finds no new curve “hard” to do.


God, in surest sovereignty and might,

Makes His world full of slight bends.

But He made His prime creature’s sight,

To see perfection in parallel ends.

The ONE that precedes all the beginnings that we know,

The ONE that exceeds all the endings that show,

The ONE Who is wider than the widest width of space,

The ONE Who is higher than the Apex of the place,

The ONE Who is deeper than the Nader itself,

The ONE Who includes “lock, stock, barrel” plus shelf,

The ONE Who pictures all man’s time at a glance,

The ONE Who never has anything happen “by chance,”

And the ONE more holy than His own Holy of Holies.

God – the Being before the beginning.


God – the Being after the ending.

Object. The China Inland Mission was formed under a deep sense of China s pressing need, and with an earnest desire, constrained by the love of CHRIST and the hope of His coming, to obey His command to preach the Gospel to every creature. Its aim is, by the help of GOD, to bring the Chinese to a saving knowledge of the love of GOD in CHRIST, by means of itinerant and localised work throughout the whole of the interior of China.

Character. The Mission is Evangelical, and embraces members of all the leading denominations of Christians.

Methods. Methods somewhat unusual and peculiar were adopted for working the newly-proposed organisation. It was determined :

1. That duly qualified candidates for missionary labour should be accepted without restriction as to denomination, provided there was soundness in the faith in all fundamental truths.

2. That all who went out as Missionaries should go in dependence upon God for temporal supplies, with the clear understanding that the Mission did not guarantee any income whatever ; and knowing that, as the Mission would not go into debt, it could only minister to those connected with it as the funds sent in from time to time might allow.

Support. The Mission is supported entirely by the free-will offerings of the Lord’s people. The needs of the work are laid before God in prayer, no personal solicitations or collections being authorised. No more is expended than is thus received, going into debt being considered inconsistent with the principle of entire dependence upon God.  [*]
