Heb 12.14 +

Heb 12.14

“Follow peace with all men, and holiness,

without which no man shall see the Lord:”


“I’m not preaching holiness because it happens to be in the doctrine of the church to which I belong.”

– H Robb French, 8-Rm.House (sermon)

“I’m not preaching holiness because my father preached…I am preaching holiness from a deep & profound conviction.”
– H Robb French, “8-Rm.House” (sermon)


Clyde D. Bryan said, “A bargain’s not a bargain if you don’t need it.” Dad was right.

The greatest bargain a man can get is Salvation. It is totally Free (when you meet conditions). And, aye, brothers/sisters, we *need* this bargain! Come to Jesus Christ, agree to His reasonable terms & be saved.

“…If we walk in the light of justification it will not be long until

 the Blessed Holy Spirit will lead us to the light of full salvation.”

– H Robb French, “8-Rm.House” (sermon)



Don’t let us rely on past deeds done,

Or on “righteous” miles already run,

No. Not on anything, under the sun

But solely, only on You, Lord.


May our theology be legit,

And our words upright & “fit,”

And our light brightly lit,

But may we depend on You, Lord


Till someday – You know how soon,

We’ll fly this plane of surf & dune,

To rise above the highest noon,

Because we fully relied on You, Lord.

“It is impossible to separate doctrine and

morality in the Christian Church.”

Mat 2.1

“Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea

there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem.”


No one knows “when” Christ was born. “When” includes the month, day of the month, & possibly the year. What we DO know is – He. Was.  Born.  As a young man, not yet 20, I realized the uncertainty of His Birthday & though I didn’t fully like it, I decided to “go with” the-most-likely-not-date of December 25, not because I believed it accurate but because 1.) I KNEW He as born, & 2.) I could not prove any other date or firmly disprove this one.

“Those who are still afraid of men have no fear of God and

those who have fear of God have ceased to be afraid of men.”

– Dietrich Bonoeffer, /Cost of Discipleship/


If you were born with a proverbial “silver spoon…” you may not have (or may not have developed) a spirit of innovation. (Some poor people don’t seem to have it either. L) I was moments ago reminded of how God gave an idea when putting the two posts (on the ground) which match our little porch railing. I’m very grateful for how the Lord has given idea after idea. Many times I didn’t have a project “all-figured-out” but by the time I come to a certain point I see what to do. Praise Him!

Heb 12.14

“Follow peace with all men, and holiness,

without which no man shall see the Lord:”


When a “holiness preacher” does not emphasis holy living, its Biblical basis, its beauty, & its ugly counterpart (carnality), there’s reason to believe he’s not a holiness preacher. There are evangelicals who do decent jobs preaching against sin & extolling salvation. It’s up to holiness men to preach HOLINESS.

“Prayer is like work – it moves something.”

– Tillman Harris


* TRINITY * (18.)

1Jo 5.7 …there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word & the Holy Ghost: & these three are one.




Need wisdom today, need wisdom tomorrow,

Need wisdom in joy, need wisdom in sorrow,

Need wisdom when single, need wisdom when wed,

Need for the body, need wisdom for the head,

Wisdom when young, hormones flowing,

Wisdom when gray or head balding.

Whatever the stage or age we are in

Lord, grant us your wisdom now within.

Mat 28.6

“He is not here: for he is risen, as he said.

Come, see the place where the Lord lay.”


“He is risen. He is risen, indeed!” Don’t restrict this to a certain spring Lord’s Day morning. Let it be a part of your thinking other days, even today. The OT had some resurrections; the NT had more. But they all, to-a-man returned to a grave. Not our Lord. He’s alive. Enjoy. Revel in the fact that “He is risen.” Indeed!

“Any mantra (like the Catholic rosary) violates Christ’s command to

‘Use not vain repetitions as the heathen’ (Mt 6:7).”

– T A McMahon, from Berean Call



The devil was forced out of heaven & “landed” on earth. This was a fall which we humans can read about & believe but we are far from understanding. This was huge. But wait, it’s not over for him. God is going to take him further down (hell, of course, is down). Friend, you don’t want anything to do with satan. He’s a loser! He has been AND he will be. For now satan appears to be having his way. That will soon be over – if not for him in God’s final actions, it will be for the saints at death.
