Pro 22.7

“The rich ruleth over the poor &

the borrower is servant to the lender.”

 

“…Puritans whipped the Quakers, men & women, cut off their ears…hanged 4 of their preachers…in the last century for preaching up the Christian perfection of faith & obedience…”

– John Fletcher, /Works I/

 

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

Jer 13.9 Thus saith the LORD, After this manner will I mar the PRIDE of Judah, and

the great PRIDE of Jerusalem.

 

“…The expection of the Messiah, which was a capital article of the faith of the ancient Israelites,

is now the buttress of the babel of modern jews.”

– John Fletcher, /Works I/

 

Stop going into debt. “When?” Now! This July 2019. If you can’t pay off the balance when the credit card is due, don’t place buy it. “But I NEED it.” Save for it. Buy it next month. (By then, you may’ve found it at Good Will for pennies-on-the-dollar, been given it by a friend, or figured out you don’t need it afterall.) Learn to say “No” to yourself. Learn to say “No” to your wife. Learn to say “No” to the kids. They do NOT have to have everything the “Jones” or “Rodriquez” family has. Have you tried to make one? Tried to invent a way around this? Or have you prayed to be content? – 7/3/19

 

Eternity

  1. Ever tried to see, to imagine, to grip,
  2. This thing called “Eternity” – beyond time’s lip,
  3. Ever thought what God was doing in the past?
  4. Reading. Reading what? He knows all – first-to-last.
  5. No human (limited as we are) to earth-time, earth-space,
  6. In any way can grasp God’s Purpose, Creation, Grace.
  7. Tomorrow passes us. “Timeless” we speak of but do not know
  8. Yet God here, everywhere lies beyond time’s narrow flow. – eab, 7/5/12

 

Don’t accept labels opponents try to stick on you. We’re not “protestants” (that’s a label). We’re believers in Christ & His Word, similar to thousands of His followers who never were a part of the catholic system. We’re not “homophobes.” We’ve had the good sense to follow the Biblical teaching: one man, one wife for life. We’re not “anti-immigrant.” We’re anti /illegal/ immigrant. We’re not “hoarders.” We know enough to save for a winter, a sever storm, a dry spell, a depression, etc. – 7/3/19

 

Mar 10.25

“It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle,

than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.”

 

A female saint exceeds the world’s “lady.” Things don’t have to be perfect (décor, atmosphere, etc.) for her to act perfectly. She always dresses modestly (even when hard at work), always sits like a lady, & she helps make others at ease. She is the product of the Holy Spirit’s Finishing School. – 7/5/19

 

“What church or congregation has any respect for a minister who trims his preaching

to the itching ears of the monied man in his church?”

– Carl McIntire

 

Rejoice. The perfect world maybe right-a-round-the-corner. For some of you it could start within a week. While your family weeps, missing your saintly presence, heaven will be rejoicing: another Brother, another Sister has made it to his/her eternal home exactly for what they had lived for years. – 7/5/19

 

“The church…is not a forum, debating society, or an opinion arena.

It has only one message, ‘Thus saith the Lord.’ ”

– Carl McIntire

Pro 22.7

“The rich ruleth over the poor, and

the borrower is servant to the lender.” [emphasis added]

 

If you can’t pay cash (or pay off the credit card in the next pay-cycle) don’t buy small items. “But we need it.” If you are a child of God He’s promised to supply all your need (Php 4.19). “Well, He hasn’t supplied this one.” Friend, check your status with God. He may be waiting for you to obey in an area where you’re “dragging-your-feet.” Or, He may have an answer-on-the-way & you need patience to wait.

“God has nothing to cover up but in every case has used languages to enlighten and

liberate the world of mankind.”

– A L Vess, fr his /Bible on Tongues/

 

When our Lord rose from Mt Olivet, He did it in His Human Body. Normally when a saint leaves earth he leaves his body here (except those two E-men: Enoch & Elijah). Christ took His Body with Him – I like that!

House or Home ?

A house may be built with boards and bricks

Masons and carpenters thus get their “kicks,”

But a home is built of love.

Materials (above) have their widths and lengths

Are know for their endurance and strengths,

But a home is built of love.

Houses, cute or crude, have their dimension

Answering to the architect’s imagination.

Houses may be short or tall

Behind country fence or cultured wall,

Be of some value, or cheaply made

Easy to defend or easy to invade,

But the best house is a tent compared

To the home love built, fitted and squared

That home made of love, love, love.

Mat 5.6

“Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness…”

 

Once money becomes your god, it’s like the True God, you can never have enough of it. You can replace “money” (above) with “sex” or “sports” or any other lesser “god.” We’re made to want more & more of the Real God or, if you insist on having a substitute “god,” more of it.

“It is almost taken for granted in the New Testament that Tribulation is the normal lot of Christians.”

– F F Bruce, /Book of Acts/

 

Jesus is the Word. He is the Divine Express of God. Jesus is not a Number – numbers have an inordinate influence in modernity. Jesus is not a musical Note – notes hold too much power over men. Jesus is not an Image – images have grown (not declined). Millions watch movies: Adoring, “Believing” in, Imitating in dress & speech, the falseness of hollywood imagery. Stop. Jesus is the Word. Please grasp these 4 words!
