More GREAT QUOTES "The greatest wisdom on this earth is holiness." - W.S. Plumer "We fear men so much because we fear God so little. One fear cures another. When man's terror scares you, turn your thoughts to the wrath of God." - William Gurnall "Temptations, when we meet them at first, are as the lion that reared upon Samson; but if we overcome them, the next time we see them we shall find a nest of honey within them." - John Bunyan "Making heaven on earth is our business." - William Booth "If your faith can't be tested, it can't be trusted." "When filled with holy truth the mind rests." - C.H. Spurgeon "If we look carefully within ourselves, we shall find that there are certain limits beyond which we refuse to go in offering ourselves to God. We hover around these reservations, making believe not to see them, for fear of self-reproach. The more we shrink from giving up any s


Refuting the Heretics (Web sites that attack the pretribulation rapture) Here are a few bible quotes about heretics, false prophets, and those who depart from the faith, and what we are to do about them. This is important because some foolishly refuse to believe that it is possible to fall into error, or that it is impossible for them. Matthew 7:15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Matt 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many . Matt 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. The verse in Matt 24:24 is sometimes used to say that it is impossible for the elect to be deceived. But note, it does not give the reason why the elect cannot be deceived. Perhaps the reason it will be impossible to deceive the elect at that time is because the elect will have

Men and women would fall by the wayside and would be found hours later pleading with God to save their souls. They felt that they were slipping into hell and that nothing else in life mattered but to get right with God... To them eternity meant everything. Nothing else was of any consequence. They felt that if God did not have mercy on them and save them, they were doomed for all time to come." - Oswald J. Smith "As a Christian, I am responsible for the furniture of my mind." - Frank E. Gaebelein "Holiness is an impossiblity - without the Holy Spirit." - Anonymous "It is no sin to doubt some things but it may be fatal to believe everything." - A.W. Tozer. "A baptism of


"Jesus said learn of me" "Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls". For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.Matt11:29,30. I think for me there is a sense of relief that Jesus actually said that we could take his yoke upon us. I also think that there is comfort and joy-assurance that everything is going to be all right. There is no baggage in Jesus's yoke for us. It is liberating and free. Jesus then says "learn of me"which of course will take all eternity, but I did make a personal observation in my walk with God. True sanctification only takes place when I am learning about Jesus Christ. After all, He is the person that saved me and I will be spending all eternity with him. It is refreshing to take a new look at Jesus Christ every day. Let me just say at this point that it is the Holy Spirit's role to point us to Jesus Christ. John 15:26. Even a glimpse of our S


'Some people!' snorted a man standing behind me in the long line at the grocery store. 'You would think the manager would pay attention and open another line, 'said a woman. I looked to the front of the line to see what the hold up was and saw a well dressed, young woman, trying to get the machine to accept her credit card. No matter how many times she swiped it, the machine kept rejecting it. 'It's one of them welfare card things. Damn people need to get a job like everyone else,' said the man standing behind me. The young woman turned around to see who had made the comment. 'It was me,' he said, pointing to himself. The young lady's face began to change expression. Almost in tears, she dropped the welfare card onto the counter and quickly walked out of the store. Everyone in the checkout line watched as she began running to her car. Never looking back, she got in and drove away. After developing cancer in 1977 and having had to use food

Thank Him For The Thorns

Sandra felt as low as the heels of her Birkenstocks when she pulled open the florist shop door, against a November gust of wind. Her life had been as sweet as a spring breeze and then, in the fourth month of her second pregnancy, a "minor" automobile accident stole her joy. This was Thanksgiving week and the time she should have delivered their infant son. She grieved over their loss. Troubles had multiplied. Her husband's company "threatened" to transfer his job to a new location. Her sister had called to say that she could not come for her long awaited holiday visit. What's worse, Sandra's friend suggested that Sandra's grief was a God-given path to maturity that would allow her to empathize with others who suffer. "She has no idea what I'm feeling," thought Sandra with a shudder. "Thanksgiving? Thankful for what?" she wondered. "For a careless driver whose truck was hardly scratched when he rear-ended her? For an air


Title---'A Quiet Spirit Through Loud Circumstances" As I went before God so He could give me a message for the day I started to go into a subject that He just did not want me to get into. I was wondering why my thoughts were cluttered, the words just did not seem to flow and my spirit was not being renewed in Him. Sometimes I think when we try and push a subject it is like shoving a rock off of a mountain. We see the rock but when it falls we no longer observe it. Remember that verse in 2 Corinthians 3:6 ..."not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life." For me at least this is the way it works. Pushing would be the letter of the law. Allowing God to show me would be the Spirit of God. If we push something and God is not behind it our efforts will lead to flesh. I am saying all of that to say this, if we want a quiet spirit through loud circumstances we have to let G

More GREAT QUOTES "The weakness of so many modern Christians is that they feel too much at home in the world. In their effort to achieve restful adjustment to unregenerate society they have lost their pilgrim character and become an essential part of the verymoral order against which they are sent to protest. The world recognizes them and accepts them for what they are. And this is the saddest thing that can be said about them. They are not lonely, but neither are they saints." - A.W. Tozer "it is more important that God be glorified then that I be saved!" A.W Tozer A foolish physician he is, and a most unfaithful friend, that will let a sick man die for fear of troubling him; and cruel wretches are we to our friends, that will rather suffer them to go quietly to hell, then we will anger them, or hazard our reputation with them. -Baxter, Richard We need more speaking to God about men, than speaking to men about God. -Mother Cobb Consider this,
