QUICKIE LICKITY

These, in all probability, catch more attention than long, drawn out dissertations.  Of course some individuals are really not interested in what another says on any given subject.  I must illustrate:  From Psalm 103—“He has not dealt with us according to our sin, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.  For as high as theContinue reading “QUICKIE LICKITY”

IN A MESS!

Admittedly I was, as they say, as proud as a peacock!  From that moment I remember how, I had respect and appreciation for OUR FLAG, the Stars and Stripes.  I also found myself shedding quite a few tears when a patriotic song was sung, and at times I could not sing because of my emotions. Continue reading “IN A MESS!”

OUT OF A NEED

I cannot recall being told that I could not pray with them or assist them in some way.  I can assert that a few times, I discovered later that I was “ripped off”, but that simply made me more cautious in subsequent experiences. The very first miracle that is recorded as having been performed byContinue reading “OUT OF A NEED”

PRECIOUS STONES

This carnelian stone is remarkable for its transparency.  Hold it up to the light, and one can see right through it.   Again this is eloquent of Jesus.  He has nothing to hide.  There was nothing shady in His character.   He had no dark secrets in His bosom.  He was pure through and through.  His motives,Continue reading “PRECIOUS STONES”

A DISCIPLINED TONGUE

Quite a few years ago I developed a problem with a cough.  The Dr’s found that they could not bring it under control, so they decided that I should have a biopsy taken.  I remember well the insertion of that tube which felt like a four inch sewer pipe going down my throat.  His commentContinue reading “A DISCIPLINED TONGUE”

RESURRECTED SAINTS

More and more we hear people speaking of the “end of the world”, and there is little question that we are in high gear toward the “end” of this age.  In the language of the prognostics we are on a downward trend that will eventually see everything falling into disarray and collapse.  They see noContinue reading “RESURRECTED SAINTS”

TRY TO IMAGINE THIS

Hold on, just as I was fumbling in my mind about the amount of work involved, I remembered that he did it without a computer.  I doubt that he had time for many of the things that we “work” into our schedules these days.  Think of the financial support that God must have laid onContinue reading “TRY TO IMAGINE THIS”

SUBSERVIENT

After presenting the uniqueness of Jesus being both God and man, he presents the beauty of His purpose, to redeem man who is totally corrupt, into a spiritual child of a sinless God. When one reads the uniqueness of the virgin birth of Christ, you also discover that from a human stand-point, Jesus, and JohnContinue reading “SUBSERVIENT”

COMMON SENSE!

Verse 4 – “An evildoer listens to wicked lips; a liar pays attention to a destructive tongue.” Verse 7 – “Excellent speech is not fitting for a fool, much less are lying lips to a prince.” Verse 10 – “A rebuke goes deeper into one who has understanding than a hundred blows into a fool.”Continue reading “COMMON SENSE!”

KINGDOM PREACHING

This was in keeping with His presentation initially as King, and then as Savior.  Let us remember those Kingdom principles are also appropriate for any man who wants to be blessed and a blessing. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they shallContinue reading “KINGDOM PREACHING”
