Forgive before answering

September 30, 2018

Forgive someone before answering, so that forgiveness permeates your response.


September 30, 2018

Comparing yourself with others is not recommended, but, in any case, you would want to first establish the reason why you want to compare yourself with others.

As simple as that

September 29, 2018

A Liberal Christian is a fake Christian, it’s as simple as that.


They may be a “nice” person, but whatever they are, they are not a Christian.

Crossed the Rubicon

September 29, 2018

The western world has crossed the Rubicon, now “truth” is the way you want things to be.

Deep or shallow

September 29, 2018

The person who’s not a deep thinker will be a shallow thinker, and then, perhaps, a shallow person.

Only chance to live

September 28, 2018

Jesus said emphatically that no man can have life apart from union with Him.


September 28, 2018

Jesus delivers us from the evil one, and from our evil self.

A poor king

September 28, 2018
“This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles.” (Psalm 34:6)
King David wrote this. Even though he was king of Israel, he considered himself a poor man.
It wasn’t false humility – he KNEW he was a poor man.
Only a poor man could be so desperately DEPENDENT on the LORD for His help.

He knows

September 27, 2018

Telling the Lord you love Him is not how He knows whether you do.

How God meets our needs

September 27, 2018

If Christians are concerned whether they will lack what they need, they only really need to be concerned about whether they FEAR THE LORD.

(See Psalm 34)


September 25, 2018

The only reason one doesn’t like a promise of God to be conditional is one doesn’t like the condition.

Theological hijacking

September 25, 2018

Usually, devotion to an “ism” indicates someones mind has been hijacked by another.

Questioning God

September 25, 2018

Human nature is such that people only question truths of God’s word when they want to justify actions they know God does not approve of.

All great Christians have been wounded souls

September 25, 2018

“All great Christians have been wounded souls. It is strange what a wound will do to a man. Here’s a soldier who goes out to the battlefield. He is full of jokes and strength and self- assurance; then one day a piece of shrapnel tears through him and he falls, and whimpering, beaten, defeated man. Suddenly his whole world collapses around him and this man, instead of being the great, strong, broad-chested fellow that he thought he was, suddenly becomes a whimpering boy, again. And such have even been known, I am told, to cry for their mothers when they lie bleeding and suffering on the field of battle. There is nothing like a wound to take the self-assurance out of us, reduce us to childhood again and make us small and helpless in our own sight.

Many of the Old Testament character were wounded men, stricken of God and afflicted indeed as their Lord was after them. Take Jacob, for instance. Twice God afflicted him; twice he met God and one time it came as a wound, and another time it came actually as a physical wound and he limped on his thigh for the rest of his life. And the man Elijah, was he not more than a theologian? He was a man who had been stricken; he had been struck with the sword of God and was no longer simply one of Adam’s race standing up in his own self-assurance; he was a man who had an encounter with God, who had been confronted by God and had been defeated and broken down before. And when Isaiah saw the Lord high and lifted up, you know what it did to him. Or take Ezekiel, how he went down before his God and became a little child again. And there were many others.Let’s talk about these three wounds in their order.

THE FIRST IS THE WOUND OF CONTRITION. Now I’ve heard for the last thirty years that repentance is a change of mind, and I believe it, of course, as far as it goes. But that is just what’s the matter with us. We have reduced repentance to a change of mind. It is a mental act, indeed, but I point out that repentance is not likely to do us much good until it ceases to be a change of mind only and becomes a wound within our spirit. No man has truly repented until his sin has wounded him near to death, until the wound has broken him and defeated him and taken all the fight and self- assurance out of him and he sees himself as the one who nailed his Savior on the tree.”

Faith and strength

September 25, 2018

You are only as strong as your faith.

The covetous miss out

September 24, 2018

The covetous “Christian” misses out on enjoying God for who He is, and they miss out forever.

Hanging with God

September 24, 2018

I commented:


“Waiting on the LORD”, in my understanding, is a “hanging out” with God time. For example, of an evening, just to sit under the stars and think about Him, with no rush, no hurry, taking the time to spend with a Friend, communing with Him, and speaking from the heart to Him.

Talking man to God

September 24, 2018

Was talking to a guy yesterday who told me he prays the Rosary, so I said to him, Just as we are talking man to man, prayer is man talking to God – man to God. You believe you are talking to a real Person, you believe the truth, you have faith.

The 100 fold

September 23, 2018
Have you experienced this AMAZING promise?
(Mark 10:29-30 [KJV])
[29] And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s,
[30] But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.

How could we not have His joy?

September 23, 2018

I think it’s hard to spend time waiting on the LORD and NOT have His joy in your heart.
