New Year 2020

New Year

 

Here we are now, just a very few days out from the end of 2019 and the dawning of 2020 and a Brand New Year, one almost like none other ever in the history past.  How we got this far through 2019 from January just past so quickly is just a mystery and a blur, but here we are now, all of us standing at the very door as it were, doorstep in front of us ready to step over the threshold into 2020.  There are some very big plans afoot for this next year… Continue reading

Parakletos; Our Friend

Parakletos: Our Friend

Jesus Promised the Disciples; “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient that I go away: for if I don’t, go away, the Comforter (Greek: Parakletos) will not come unto you, but if I depart, I will send him unto you.” John 16:7 AKJV.

Quote; “Remember the words of the inspired apostle, “Ye are not your own. For ye are bought with a price” (1 Corinthians 6:19, 20). You are bought;  even if you perish. The Lord wants His own property. When we have given to God soul, body, and spirit; when we have kept appetite under the control of enlightened conscience, and wrestled against every lust, showing that we consider each organ as God’s property, intended for His service; when all our affections move in harmony with the Lord’s mind, fastening on objects “which are above, where Christ sitteth… Continue reading

Know the Lord

Know the Lord

Quote; “Those who are striving to be overcomers will be pursued by the temptations of the enemy. Satan will tempt them to corrupt the principles which all must maintain who would reach the high standard that God has set before them. Satan rejoices when he can lead souls to follow mistaken ideas, until their names are blotted out of the book of life and recorded among the names of the unjust. We can overcome only in the way that Christ overcame–by wholehearted obedience to every commandment of God. True religion is obedience to all the commandments of… Continue reading
