HAPPY SABBATH + HEAVEN vs. TEMPORAL THINGS?!





You Can't Be Serious!

I Am!
If All My Children
AND
My Sweetums
My Brothers And My Sisters
And My Mother And My Father
And My Best Friend
Are Not Going To Heaven With Me
I Am Not Going!

Lord Jesus, Make Peace!
How Can You Say That?!
Don't You Believe That The Word Is True?!

Yes, I Do Believe, But ...!

Raisen!
We Have A Date With Destiny!
Nothing Between Us And The Holy God!
You Can't Pick And Choose 
Which Truth To Believe
Which To Doubt
Which To Discard
Which To Hold In Abeyance
Which To Stand On
Which To Sleep Over
Which To Dismantle
Which To Reconstruct!

I Know All That, But ...!

Your Head Must Be Hurting By Now!

Huh?!

You're Butting Everything!
Stop Butting!
Jesus Said ...!

... I KNOW What Jesus Said
And I Know I Am Not Worthy Of Him!
It's Not Fair!
He Wants Me To Give Up Everything I Love 
To Get Into A Kingdom
That I Cannot Even Conceive Of In My Mind!

You Are Right!

About What?!

About Having Lost Your Faith!
I Must Wonder, Though
IF You Ever Really Had Faith
Outside Of The Intellectual Kind!

I Don't Know - I Can't Answer That
BUT
I Do Know That I Need To Feel 
In Control Of My Own Life
And I Don't!
He Wants Too Much!

No, He Doesn't - He Wants It All!
IF 
He Has Too Much
That Means You Still Have Some
AND THATMy Friend
Is Your Whole Problem!

Give Jesus Your All
For
For You
He Gave His All!

He Leads!
You Follow!
He Loves!
You Trust In His Love 
AND
In Love
You Do Exactly What He Says!
He Is The Only Way!

Please Do Not Despise
The Mercy Of God
Just Because Others Do!
IF
You Want Others To Join You In Heaven
Live Your Life
As Though Heaven Is Your Soul's
Sole Goal!
Be The Example!

Let Others See In You
What Jesus Christ Has Done
And Is Doing For You
And In You!

Look!
Do You Really Believe
That Your Family Would Reject Heaven
Just Because You Do?!

No!

Lord Jesus, Help Us!
Then, Why ...?!

I Guess I Am Not As Important To Them 
As They Are To Me!

Do You Even Hear Yourself?!
Sometimes I Think 
Somebody Dropped On Your Head As A Baby
For You Are Seriously Talking Addled!

Okay, Me!
Take A Deep Breath!
Different Tack ...

Do You:

  • Love The Lord
  • Believe He Is Preparing A Place For You
  • Is Coming Back For You
  • Takes Care Of You
  • Helps You
  • Guides You
  • Provides For You
  • Blesses You?


Yes! Yes! Yes!
Jesus Loves ... Me!

Do You Believe That Jesus
Loves You More Than His Life?

Huh?!
What Kind Of Question Is That?!

A Straight Question
Requiring A Straight
AND
Thoughtful
Plain Answer!

How Can Jesus Love Me More Than
His Own Life?!

Who Did Jesus Die For?!
What Killed Jesus?!

Me?!

(RAISED EYEBROWS)

Me.

AND ...

And He Died Of A Broken Heart
Not Just Because Of The Burden Of Sin
But Because Of All Those
Who Have ...
And Who ... Will
Rejectttt ...
The ... Great ... Salvatio-...!!
(Tears Flow)!

Listen To Me!
Remember Adam
Remember Lot's Wife
And, Then
Sincerely
Think Of Job!

Adam Chose To Sin
To Give Up Life
To Give Up Paradise
Because
He Didn't Want To Cut Loose Eve!
He Valued Her Companionship
More Than He Valued God's!

Lot's Wife
Could Not Separate Worldly Affluence
From Soul Salvation
AND
She Lost Affluence
AND
Body And Soul
For Despising God's Free Mercy!
Please Do Not Make That Gross Mistake!

Think Of Job
The Richest Man
Who Gave To All
Who Trusted God For All
AND
Lost It All
EXCEPT FORHis Faith
In The God Of All
Who Could Replace It All
AND DID!

Think On Abraham
That Friend Of God!
Can You See The Picture?!
Do You Understand What It Shows?!

Yes!

Are You Okay?!

No, I'm Not!
I Feel Like A Total Idiot!

There's No Need For That Kind Of Talk!
Isn't It "Feelings" That Started It All?!

Oh, Dear!
Yes, It Was!

Okay.
Now Wipe Your Eyes
And Give Your Nose A Good Blow
And Tell Me What You Have Gleaned!

First, And Foremost
I Learned That
Sacrificing My Soul's Salvation
For Another Person 
Will Not Save The Other Person
Or Give Them Salvation
Even Though It Costs Me Mine!

Second,
Salvation Is An Individual Pursuit
For
Whosoever Will That Desires It
And Takes Up The Offer!

I Am Ashamed Of MYSELF!

You Should Be
Since You Claim Christ
AND
Preach Life
To Everybody You Meet
BUT
That Is The Past!

God Forgives
AND ...

... God Restores!
I Guess It Was Necessary 
For Us To Have This Conversation
TODAY!!

If God Could Give Back To Job
Twice
What He Lost
I Should Trust Him
No Matter What Happens
In My Life!

Heyyyyy!

Think Of Joseph
Moses
And Then
Consider The Apostle Paul
Who Had It All
Who Lost It All
AND
Gained The Best Of All
For Answering
Believing
Honoring
Trusting
Obeying
The Glorious God Of All!

You May Love Your Family
But You Can't Gain Eternity For Them!
Every Man's Soul's Salvation
IS
- Personally -
That Man's Business!

Life Is A Triangle!
Christ Is The Top!
You And Satan
Are In Lateral Positions
At The Base!

You Can Look across At Satan
OR
You
- To Jesus -
Can Look Up
BUT
You Can't Hold Both In Esteem!

Choice Is Your Ball!
Where Will You
Permit It To Fall?!

I Choose
To Reach Up!
To Look Up!

I Need A Drink!

What Shall It Be?!
Bowmanston Special
ORGovernment Juice?!

Is There A Difference?!

Nooooo!!!

Ha! Ha! Ha!

Two Fresh Ice Waters With Hard Ice Blocks
Coming Right Up!

Thank You, Sweetie, For Caring!

Anytime, My Friend!
Any Time!
