Psa 139.14

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made…”

 

One of the greatest qualities with which man is blessed by his Creator is the sense of right & wrong. How many times we’ve sensed: “That doesn’t look right.” “Something doesn’t sound right.” “It doesn’t taste right.” “It doesn’t smell good.” “I don’t have a good feeling about it.” God gives these built-in-guides to saints & sinners as a part of basic humanity. Harken to them. – eab, 6/21/18

 

“The New Testament has no meaning if Jesus is anything less than a Savior.”

– Samuel Chadwick

 

What’s your view of sin? Is it the view of Dad? (More than you think?) Is it the view of your Heavenly Father? A Christian’s view should match (as we’re capable) God’s view. Don’t tolerate sin in your life. Don’t tolerate sin in church leadership. If after prayer (& perhaps fasting) you still see sin accepted in church leadership it may be time to change houses of worship (not said lightly but sincerely). God won’t bless your life or church if sin is tolerated. (False “blessings” & worked-up-emotions are not from God.)

CALM

God is God & has been

Since the world got its start.

He will be God after heaven

And all earth depart.

God is God in the fleeting moment,

We whimsically call “now,”

From the sea’s lonely shore

To the mountain’s mighty brow.

Let such limitlessness, agelessness

Give you an exceeding calm.

Rest, Child, in the hollow of

His lovingly immense palm.

– eab, 6/22/17

 

Joh 14.30

“Hereafter I will not talk much with you:

for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.”

 

Eternity is a big “E” – earth is a small “e.” earth (all we’ve known so far) is but a stepping-stone to the big “E.” The devil “…prince of this world” (Joh 16.11), wants us so fascinated by earth (satan doesn’t mind if you like “good” things as long as they keep you from the Best) that we spend a life-time chasing bubbles & ignore the big “E.” Don’t.

“…The more we conform to his will, the more we act according to his wisdom

and imitate his goodness, by so much the more do we enjoy God…”

– Wm Law, /Serious Call…/

 

The body is “king” in the fields of sports, as it walks/runs/jumps/twists/pushes its “animal” power.

The mind is “king” in the fields of academia as it spouts facts/figures/philosophies in brain power.

Both are usurpers, knaves acting as kings. They are pretenders to the throne of a man. The Soul is the better “king.” If properly instructed & gracefully lead the Soul deserves to be “king” – under the Heavenly King.

Psa 139.14

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:

marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.

 

  1. What could possibly be as “handy” as a hand?
  2. Its matching mate on the other arm!

When is the last time you thanked God for giving you two?

“Faith is choosing to believe that God tells the truth.”

– John Whiteman, sermon, 4/15/92

 

God is the greatest possible Person. He is the Being beyond & above all/any comparison! We can know a mere mortal a decade or three & still learn something new about them. If that’s true with His creature, how much more with the Impossible-to-understand Creator.

– eab, 6/1/18

 

BELIEVBLE

I believe the most believable Belief ever known.

(Blinded Jews rejected Jesus – their very “own”.)

God’s Son lived, died, resurrected; that’s for sure!

Bringing Salvation for believers which will ever endure.

Soon we will have a totally “devil-free-zone.”

– eab, 6/1/18

 

1Co 10.19-20

“What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?

“But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.”

 

Idols, by their very nature, are not real. They are mockup, an imitation & God wants us to have nothing to do with them, ever. He knows they’re false but sadly men forget THAT & trust in their own carvings & cravings. (Idols are “fronts” for satan -1Co 10.19-20.) The devil wants to be worshipped & if need be, will accept it “secondhand.”

“…We have no assurance that any physical perfection can be made use of in the world above…neither have we any assurance that the perfections of the mind survive the day of death.”

– Wm Jennings Bryan, /In His Image/

 

Heaven is not about you (or me). Nor is heaven a glorified “family reunion.” Heaven is about God. If you do not love Him you would not be happy there. You would not enjoy hearing Him glorified, hearing His abilities extolled, hearing His splendors praised. Heaven is about God. I’ll be happy to have a tiny part of His heaven. Amen?
