Mat 1.21 +

Mat 1.21

“…she shall bring forth a son…thou shalt call his name JESUS:

for he shall save his people from their sins.”


“As one as said, it were better to be ‘learning the alphabet in heaven

than reading Greek in hell.’”

– M W Knapp


Isa 42.5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the Heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the Earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:          –         God made Heaven, Earth, World # 21


“He [Christ] directs through His Spirit & Word

and they ever both agree.”

– M W Knapp



Years have now past since He was seen last,

In Jerusalem or Bethany.

His step in the land is not on the sand,

At Jordan or blue Galilee.


Some men have said (they’re long since dead)

That He would be forgot.

Where are they now – who were they anyhow?

I’d like to tell them a lot.


That Life has changed, that Influence ranged,

To men of every clime.

And even the date, is not by fate,

But according to His time.


He didn’t publish a book, notes He never took;

A few sermons He gave,

On justice and peace, joy that will not cease,

And words on how to behave.


His travel was small, not far at all,

His life – an untimely end.

But enough to reach, ole time to breach

Centuries, the story to send.


So there in part, weak rhyme, less art,

Are thoughts on my Lord.

This season of the year, praise to Him so dear

The Living Eternal Word.

Deu 11.19

“…ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them

when thou sittest in thine house…when thou walkest by the way

when thou liest down…when thou risest up.”


Have Family Altar: 1.) Start with a shorter Bible Book (without hard names). 2.) Don’t feel you must read a the chapter – read part, mark it & read another part tomorrow. (If you’re a poor reader, read the verses over to yourself ahead of time, even twice.) 3.) Do not think you have to say words of your own after the Scripture. 4.) Have a short prayer, including the all the family by name. 5.) If it’s easier, have prayer first.

“Man knows us, and God judges us, by our records…”

– Wilfred Grenfell, MD – Brit who was missionary to Canada


My parent raised me to think. I heard them ask each other on the way home from church (we went to what they knew were the best churches in our area), “Is that in the Bible?” Because of them, I knew when I went to junior-high to reject the un-Biblical “idea” called evolution. (Later I’d learn out it was unscientific as well as un-Biblical.) Thank God for Clyde & Ruth Bryan.

“I am sure that when Christ made doors and windows in Nazareth

they did not jam and misfit.”
