“For what is your life? It is even a vapor,

that appeareth for a little time & then vanisheth away.”

 

Ritual always appeals to the nursery. The…drapery, processions &

awesome ritual impress those who have no deeper vision.”

– Samuel Chadwick, /Humanity & God/

 

The most important story in the world, for every man in the world, is not “playing” at the movie house closest to him nor hyped by local media. It is his life “playing” once, never to be re-run. Others may or may not be glancing but he has One (God) as his audience. Everyman (by virtue of his God-given will) is the director of his story AND the main Actor. No, it won’t rake-in millions of dollars. If he’ll allow God to help him find salvation, & full salvation, it’ll rake-in untold “millions of yrs” in heaven – therefore (for him) the most successful life possible. But if man uses his will ill, refusing God’s help his life will rake-in millions of yrs (beyond number) in damnation – the (for him) most dismal failure of eternity. Act Right.

“Shortcuts to dominion are of satan not of God.”

– Samuel Chadwick, /Humanity & God/

 

4 of 46 “…Pride & arrogancy…do I hate”(Pro 8.13).

Job 33.17 That he may withdraw man from his purpose & hide PRIDE from man.

 

A WILLING SOUL  

Oh what does the Lord want in this life of mine,

But to be fully yielded to His will Divine.

A willing soul is what He needs,

A converted life; not a beast that bleeds.

– eab, Mar. ’74

 

“…He shows much more of Himself to some people than to others – not because He has favourites but because it is impossible for Him to show Himself to a man whose whole mind & character are in the wrong direction. Just as sunlight though it has no favourites can’t be reflected in a dusty mirror as clearly as in a clean one.”

– C S Lewis, /Beyond Personality/

 

God knows all history of all eras/areas. Please read man’s little histories with a grain of salt & dash of other seasonings. Ask God for Divine discernment when reading anything from man’s brain (including this writer). Only the Lord of all time, knows the un-abridged history of all time. Period. God is the only unprejudiced Historian.

Heb 6.12

“That ye be not slothful but followers of them who through faith

& patience inherit the promises.”

 

“When He said ‘Be perfect’ He meant it…It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg.”

C S Lewis, /Beyond Personality/

 

Is music neutral? Surely you don’t believe that because neither God nor satan (IMO) do. Godly music can bless your soul as you sing to yourself, hum, or whistle around the house, working, or driving.  Ungodly music will take the place of hymns/gospel songs in your personal repertoire if you don’t watch out. Are you, ahem, You paying attention to the music you allow on your radio, on your music list, etc.? God is.

“Beware of contentions in religion…whatsoever does not lead you

to love God & man more is most assuredly from beneath.”

– Adam Clarke, /Christian Theology/

 

Act 17.26 And hath MADE of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the Earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;

– God made Heaven, Earth, World # 37

 

“Meekness – That man walks most safely who has the least confidence in himself…

Pride ever sinks where humility swims…’”

– Adam Clarke, /Christian Theology/

 

THIS MOMENT

What is the past – a memory,

Encased in picture and word?

What is the future – a hope

A wish it can afford?

The present is all we have

This moment is all we live.

Use it wisely then to praise,

To love, give, & forgive.

2Ti 4.10

“For Demas hath forsaken me,

having loved this present world…”

 

There’s a struggle going for the soul of holiness churches. Several “went out from us…”(1Jo 2.19) in lifestyle yet think they’re keeping “somewhat” of the doctrine. (Pure holiness & pure lifestyle are strongly connected.). A percentage of these stayed in leadership. Other men, Praise God, are seeking to retain true holiness doctrine & live separate from the world. Please, reader, become aware of this struggle & determine to back heart purity where you worship, where you go to school & most of all in prayer. Real Holiness wins.

“That little no-harm devil has done more injury to the holiness movement

than any other devil in the world.”

– C B Fugett, “I Have Played the Fool”

 

The 1st “Beware” in NT is “Beware of false prophets…”(Mat 7.15). Wish I could say there’s not a wolf around; one may move in our midst as “Brother x.” He may be a “good preacher” “good teacher” or “good” other but he’s not true to the Bible. Christ told us 1.) he’ll try to look like a sheep i.e. his outward show similar to what we expect. 2.) he’s entirely different on the inside. Wolves devour sheep – false prophets reduce the number of true sheep – – – on purpose, saying things like, “You don’t have to live so strict.”

– eab, 1/30/19

 

“Old time religion will keep you out of the grave longer

& get you out sooner.”

– C B Fugett
