Joh 1.9 +

Joh 1.9

“That was the true Light, which lighteth every man

that cometh into the world.”


Affluence is a slippery path few have ever walked in it without falling

…Rich men even when pious are seldom happy…”

– Adam Clarke, /ChristianTheology/


God created the individual. And, God has the unique ability to be very present with YOU individually even when you’re in a crowd (church or otherwise). Individuality is one of the strengths of Christianity. The devil wants to (perhaps can only) control as a mass, a mob, a gang, all moving toward or fomenting disaster. How magnificent is God in holy contrast.

“Many proper marriages become unhappy in the end because the parties

have not earnestly besought God for the grace necessary for them as husbands & wives.”

– Adam Clarke, /ChristianTheology/


Sinners think that being with “friends,” drinking “spirits” in the night is great fun.

Only Saints know the pleasure of being with their great Friend & communing with His Spirit in the night. Many have given up a sinner “night life.” How many have taken up a saint’s night life of worship?

The Greeks had a god for rain,

And another one for the sun.

And why did they have two?

Because it is plain

Zeus and Helios weren’t big enough to do,

The work of Jehovah, The One.

-eab, Apr. ’68


“Revival Hindrances…Engaging in acts, temper or amusements which are contrary

to the teaching of the Word & inconsistent in true Christians.”

– M W Knapp /Revival Kindlings/


I was asked yrs ago, “Is it bragging if you know you can do it?” 1.) Why, why, do you want to tell people “I can do x”? Does it help them? Does it truly help you? 2.) And – – – just because you did it yesterday (yester-week) with finesse, is no sign you’ll do it equally well today. (God may allow you to be momentarily distracted to calm pride.) Let your actions speak, rather than your words.

Joh 1.1-2

“In the beginning was the Word & the Word was with God & the Word was God.

“The same was in the beginning with God.”


“God be with you, my children; I have breakfasted with you

& I shall supper with my Lord Jesus Christ this night.”

– Robt Bruce(1554-1631)Scots Presbyterian, quoted by M W Knapp


Jesus is the Word. He is God’s Divine Expression. God used words & inspired the prophets to pen them for the OT. He in similar fashion inspired the Apostles to write words for Him in the NT. He says that men are to be won to the Kingdom of heaven “…By the foolishness of preaching…”(1Co 1.21) showing He currently values words. Never discount the importance of words! God’s enemies use images – God uses words.
