FOR JUST A MOMENT

He went to the city of Hamilton and purchased tickets for our family, his mother and a cousin to spend 28 days on the Lady Nelson.  There was probably about 30 to 40 passengers total and those were the days when the ships carried both passengers and freight.  Each moment of that cruise was phenomenal. Continue reading “FOR JUST A MOMENT”

RECONCILIATION

Individuals have their “hurts” that need healing, but reaction has replaced response, and we are revealing more and more of the “old-nature”, of which the Scriptures teaches us is inherited at birth. The Apostle reminds the Ephesian believers of the bitterness that existed between those Gentiles, referred to as the “Uncircumcision”, whose identity related toContinue reading “RECONCILIATION”

WRONG DIRECTION

When you read what he said to the Lord in 4: l and following, “But it greatly displeased Jonah and he became angry.  He prayed to the Lord and said, ‘Please Lord, was not this what I said while I was still in my own country?  Therefore in order to forestall this I fled toContinue reading “WRONG DIRECTION”

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”
