“A man’s pride shall bring him low: but

honor shall uphold the humble in spirit.”



10 of 47 “…Give ear; be not PROUD: for the LORD hath spoken”(Jer 13.15)

Psa 94.2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the PROUD.


“…Sincere obedience or the good works of faith, are a condition…indispensably required of all that stay long enough upon the stage of life to act as moral agents.”

– John Fletcher


The Bible is the longest Book – from pre-history till after the ages close.

The Bible is the broadest Book – covering all major disciplines of educated men.

The Bible is the highest Book – addressing the highest place in or above the heavens.

The Bible is the deepest Book – describing the lake of fire perhaps as low or lower than hell.

The Bible is the greatest Book – no human has ever exhausted its riches & ideas – Nor. Ever. Will

Yet this Grand Text is simple enough that a child can read It, fed on It, & enjoy It for a life time. -10/16/19



If you are going to die right,

You have to live right,

And righteous here below.

If you expect to go up,

You have to pray up;

We always reap what we sow!

If you want God,

Read the Word of God;

Walk, walk in the light.

Be sure to do,

What you know to do,

With all your will and might.

eab, Oct 1972


“Part of St. Paul’s triumphant song just before he received the crown of martyrdom was ‘I have kept the faith!’ What wonder was it that he should have kept what even the incestuous Corinthian could never lose!”

– John Fletcher


The christian “service” which tends to have little-to-no-Gospel light, is the funeral. However there may be one which has even less: the wedding.[1] Why? Modernity has too often “taken over” our weddings. A home, God’s first earthly created institution, is being founded, right before our eyes. If ever a service should have the truth of clean & pure living, of the source of true love, & of responsibility to God, it is the wedding. – 10/19/19


Rev 19.20

“…the beast was taken & …the false prophet that wrought miracles before him…These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.”


“The man who is intimate with God

is never intimidated by man.”

– Leonard Ravenhill


The devil has developed an anti-christ to oppose Christ. If satan as tried (he can’t, but tried) to imitate Christ please, Please, Believers, be aware satan will try to fool us in almost every conceivable field. He has his own “ministers”(2Co 11.15). The devil has false “gospel singers.” He has churches were a little truth is mixed with false “doctrine.” Not all “bibles” are real Bibles. There is false “science:” evolution is a myth (as are some other “scientific” yarns). There are false “histories,” false “statesman,” & false “money.” Media, schools, hollywood, disney lie to us. Open your heart more to Christ’s Truth. – 10/19/19


“The more joy you have in the Lord the less entertainment you need.

Entertainment is the devil’s substitute for joy.”
