Tit 2.12 +

Tit 2.12

“Teaching us that, denying ungodliness & worldly lusts,

we should live soberly, righteously & godly, in this present world;”

 

“We are living in an age when people are strangling, smothering,

twisting, warping, & murdering their conscience.”

– U E Harding, “Watch! Watch!”

 

What happened to our schools? # 3

Second McGuffey Reader (3rd grade, Rev.,1920) had these Christian words:

Heaven, 2 times (pp. 34, 130)

Hymn, 2 times (pp. 122, 138)          Example:

“Ever gentle, meek, and mild, Thou didst nurse thy fretful child.

Teach these little feet the road, Leading on to heaven and God.”

(Lesson LXI, “My Mother” – no author sited)

 

“The modernists across the country…tear up Bethlehem’s Manger…tear down Calvary’s Cross…take Christ out of God…& the inspiration out of the Bible.”

– U E Harding, “Watch! Watch!”

 

A BROTHER TAKEN *

Some hours ago the message came

A tiding rimmed in black.

Death has from our presence taken

Taken to never more give back

A brother (family – in Christ – is the same)

And we feel, (Shall I say it?) forsaken

 

Some hours ago the message came

A drear tiding “trimmed in black”

The scythe of death has laid another

Found our brother in its track

Slain him, laid him. He’ll not be back

 

Some hours ago the message came

The solemn message of the dead

These are always given and received with dread

Sad the duty to deliver, sadder yet to stand and take.

Someone else has gone in sleep, we are still awake.

 

Some hours ago the dreary tiding

Of death and distance, life and resistance

Came to sadden home and heart

Our brother has been taken, He did not awaken

Death has forced us apart.

 

Death that hideous, unwanted scourge

Smirk invader, undaunted persuader

Has plunged us into the dark

Stolen another husband, father, brother

Death is brazen, final, cold, stark.

 

But, Death listen! Listen

You have an empty shell. He is now well!

No more will sorrow or pain

Cause our brother sleepless nights

O’er trials, problems or slights

He’s triumphant–these are slain. * Steve D (Douglas) Herron d.2/25/94, dear brother, “educational father.” I have missed him!

Jude 1.18

“How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time,

who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.”

 

You can have murder in your wicked heart but never pull a trigger. Some preacher may call you a non-practicing “murderer” & welcome you into his membership. You can have sodomy in your wicked heart but never do the sinful act. Some preacher may call you a non-practicing “gay” & welcome you into his membership. Jesus Christ can remove the hatred from your heart & unnatural lust as well. You can then Join Jesus’ Church. Praise the Lord.

“Till you press the believers to expect full salvation now you must not look for any revival.” – J. Wesley” quoted by M W Knapp, /Revival Kindlings/

 

Share God. Unlike human friendships, sharing God does not impinge on your time with Him. (Or, for that matter, their time with the Lord.) God can “spend” time with you, “spend” time with your friend, “spend” time with Joe or Jane across town (or across the continent) & none of you will be the least slighted or stay so long in His presence & try His patience. God is the most Unique Being possible. – eab, 2/24/19

 

“…So-called churches, that have become training schools for the theatre…”

– M W Knapp, /Revival Kindlings/

Tit 2.12 +

Tit 2.12

“Teaching us that, denying ungodliness & worldly lusts,

we should live soberly, righteously, & godly, in this present world;”

 

“All the restlessness around us is but a manifestation of the fact

that man is seeking for rest in the places where it cannot be found.”

– George B Kulp /VoiceFr.Eternity/

 

Hab 3.9 Thy bow was MADE quite naked, according to the oaths of the tribes, even thy word. Selah. Thou didst cleave the Earth with rivers. – God made Heaven, Earth, World # 32

 

“All that the world knows of practical godliness

it has to learn from the lives of Christians.”

– George B Kulp /VoiceFr.Eternity/

 

NO MATTER  

It matters not the color of your skin

Nor the language that you speak.

You’re an earthling, therefore,

One whom Christ came to seek.

– eab, 1/18/13

 

2Ti 4.3

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine;

but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears”

 

You’ve continued to pastor/evangelize/do missions/teach in groups associated with The Interchurch Holiness Convention but your attitude & some action(s) suggests your heart is not with us. Why have you stayed? Suggestions: 1.)You attended a careful school so old friends are among the right ranks. 2.)Your child married someone from a narrow group. 3.)You’ve attained a leadership position which you relish. 4.)You haven’t had the nerve to follow your left-leaning heart. Truthfully sir, it could be more “honorable” to go over to the left rather than oppose our stands. However, going is not best for you/your family. Please repent & stay. – eab, 1/10/17

 

“The church that is adopted by the world is never the true Church

– for the world never ceases to persecute the True Church.”

– V O Agan, ’55 Conf. Sermon

 

Some “christian” women are (sadly) walking “sandwich boards” for worldliness. “See, I can attend a ‘holiness’ church/school, my husband or I can have a position there, & I can trim my hair” (one of the first marks of backsliding IMO). This is a signal to worldly, female friends, “I’ve admired your cut hair & I’m following you.” More sadly, a “holiness” mother who trims/cuts (when I trim my grass, I cut my grass) her hair is saying to her daughter “uncut hair is not important.” When a son starts dating a cut-haired girl what can be said?

– eab, 1/23/17

 

“If you quote the Bible to them they look at you

& want to know what science says about it.”

– V O Agan, ’55 Conf. Sermon
