Isa 55.6 +

Isa 55.6

“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found,

call ye upon him while he is near:”


Only one person can keep you from believing in God Almighty. Only one person can keep you from believing His Holy Word. Only one person can keep you from receiving Eternal Life through obedience to the promises of Christ. Who is this powerful person? He is not a president, professor, a pastor, even a parent – YOU are that powerful person. Stop blaming others & Get/Stay right with God. He died for you! -8/9/19


“…Be not moved from your steadfastness either by names or numbers.

To judge of truth by popularity is absurd.”

– John Fletcher, /Works I/


You have two eyes? Praise God – some have one or none. Glasses? Be glad for them too.

You can hear (without hearing aid or even with one)? – Be grateful, today.

You have a sense of smell? Great! That so enhances the joy of eating.

You can speak – have a dear friend whose vocal cords are bowed – normal speech is gone.

You can feel. It’s simple but it’s a part of life’s pleasure. Praise the Lord. – 8/13/19


“…Can there be a greater sin…than to make the lying devil a god

and the true God a liar?”

– John Fletcher, /Works I/



“I can get along without Jesus,” you say?

Said when skies are blue, not gray.

Said when you breathe without thinking;

Said when your health is not a-sinking.

Said in the confidence of a youthful day;

Said when the things are going your way,

Said in blindness – you’re not really thinking –

A day comes, you’ll find your words a-stinking!

– eab, 8/12/19


“Sin can do no harm until it finds a lodging in the heart.

If you will let sin get once lodged in the heart it will eat its way to the outward life.”

– Uncle Buddy Robinson


Col 3.16

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching & admonishing

one another in psalms and hymns & spiritual songs…”


If you’re devotions are dry (all of us have better & poorer days) allow me to suggest you set aside (temporarily & only temporarily) your Bible & pick up what’s probably the second most inspiriting book in your house – an old hymnal. Allow yourself to read hymn #1 (singing is fine in church, maybe even here but many of the quality hymns were not written to be sung – music was added later). They were poems – aye poems from the heart of a poet/poetess. So, read them. Read them slowly & prayerfully. The Holy Spirit may speak to your heart, to your dryness, before you finish # 2. – 8/13/19


“This destruction of sin must take place in this world, for we read that nothing unholy or unclean or that defileth or maketh a lie or worketh abomination can enter into heaven (Rev. 21:27).”

– Uncle Buddy Robinson

Isa 55.6 +

Isa 55.6

“Seek ye the LORD while he may be found,

call ye upon him while he is near:”


“Speculation about the future took the place of study of the past & present & of careful comparison of the facts of history with the predictions of prophecy.”

– L L Pickett /The Antichrist/


Jer 27.5 I have MADE the Earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me.

– God made Heaven, Earth, World # 27


“The Bible nowhere tells us that a Jew will be the antichrist.”

– L L Pickett /The Antichrist/



Your leaves are now gone,

Like the wooded throng,

Of which you are one.

But your spheres still swing,

Patiently awaiting spring,

With its warm sun.

– eab, Jan. 1966


1Co 6.9b – 10b

“…Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind…shall inherit the kingdom of God.”


Dad’s dad (C. “Edgar”) passed away before I was born. Mom’s mom died when I was 5. Mom’s dad (from whom, happily, I got my middle “Andrew”) died when I was in h.s., & Dad’s mom also. Why tell you this? If you have 4 grandparents go see all 4 this year. If you have 3 grandparents write them of your appreciation that they’re in your life. If you have 2 grandparents send them birthday cards. If you have but 1 let him/her know you love them & show it with a call. Once they’re gone it’s too late to listen to stories of their childhood, their early married life, or some detail about your dad/mom. Love them.

– eab, 1/7/19


“…Paul very well says ‘They deny the power of godliness.’ He does not say they deny godliness but they deny the power, strength, & virtue…by false & superstitious doctrine.”

– Martin Luther


The man who wants to talk, stand like, smell like, wear his hair, dress like a women is rebelling against God’s most basic category: male & female. The woman who wants to walk, swear, cut off her hair or dress like a man is in rebellion. Christians are not naturalists, per se, but we do have Paul’s words, “Doth not even nature itself teach you…”(1Co 11.14). God while you live, allows you to rebel, but at death an awful payment starts for revolting against Him.

– eab, 1/8/19


“He who will have, for his master & king, Jesus Christ, the son of the virgin,

who took upon himself our flesh & our blood will have the devil for his enemy.”

– Martin Luther /Table talk/
