Time For A Think ...!



You Are A God-Fearing Christian!

Have You Considered
The Difference Between
The Worldly ...
"Things Happen!"AND
The Biblical ...
"All Things Work Together For Good...!?"

Have You Considered
The Difference Between
A Life Consecrated To Christ
AND
The Christless Life Dedicated To Vice?

Have You Considered
The Difference Between
A Heart For God
AND

The Heart That Is Its Own God?

Have You Considered
The Difference Between
The Lord Of Life
AND
The Life Of The Lordly?

Have You Considered
The Difference Between
"Go Ye Into All The World And Preach The Gospel ...!"
AND

"Go Around The World And Eat!?"

Have You Really Considered
- Truly Contemplated -
The Difference Between

  • Satan And The Savior
  • Truth And Error
  • Fact And Fiction
  • Angels And Demons
AND

  • Faith And Doubt?

Do You Realize Or Recognize
That You Been Touched By Grace
AND
Held In The Arms Of Mercy?

What Do Think About ...

Standing In Truth Versus Dying In Error?
Living To Love
Versus
Loving To Live
Versus
Living For Loving
Versus
Loving Living?

Have You Ever Really Thought On:

God Is Good All The Time!
AND
All The Time God Is Good!?
Do We Even Appreciate What Is Good About God
AND
God's Goodness To A Fallen Race
Now Filled With Beyond Wise Ingrates?

Stop For A Moment
And Think On ...

Come Unto Me All Ye That Labor
And Are Heavy Laden
And I Shall Give You Rest!
... Take My Yoke Upon You
And Learn Of Me
And Ye Shall Find Rest
... Unto Your Souls!

Receive Rest For The Body
AND
Find Rest For The Soul!

How Is It Possible
To Get Rest By Carrying A Yoke?

Have You Thought On The Fact
That Learning Of Christ
The Meek And Lowly One In Heart
Causes One To Find ... Rest?!

Have You Thought
Even For A Mere Moment
On The Statements:

"The Lord Jesus Thinks On Me!"

"I Go To Prepare A Place For You ...
I Will Come Again And Receive You Unto Myself
That Where I Am There Ye May Be Also?!

And ...

What Of:

They That Wait Upon The Lord
Shall Renew Their Strength ...
Mount Up With Wings As Eagles ...
Run And Not Be Weary ... Walk And Not Faint?!
AND
I Waited For The Lord And He Inclined Unto Me?!

No Justice - No Peace
AND
The Peace Of God Passes Understanding
AND
Lean Not To Your Own Understanding?!

Have You Considered
What It Means When Christ Said:

 



AND

When Man Says:


He Who Has The Most Toys Win?!

How Do YouLive In The World
AND
Not Be Of The World
IF

You Are In Christ?!

What Is The Difference Between:

Giving Thanks With A Grateful Heart
AND
Politely Saying: "Thanks!"

Fear God!
AND
Do Not Fear!

How Does One Yield To God?


Can Yielding To God
Be Likened To Yielding The Right Of Way
In A Traffic Situation?

Who Is Driving Your Life?

How Is One A Slave To Whom He Obeys
When Jesus Sets The Captive Free
AND
Says:


Obedience Is Better Than Sacrifice! 

AND


Disobedience Is As The Sin Of Witchcraft! 


AND


IF You Love Me
Keep My Commandments?


AND


 



Consider That ...

A Worldly Mind Has Objections 
To Every Statement
Every Saying
Every Commandment Of God
For
Being Given Over To A Carnal Mind
He Has No Insight
Into The Things Of God!

Carnal Things
Are Understood Carnally!
Spiritual Things
Are Discerned Spiritually
FOR
The Proof Of This
Is In The Statement Of God:

Come ... Let Us Reason Together!

Which Statement Is Not An Attribute Of The Fraud!

Satan Is Free
To Freely Lie ... Faithfully!


Jesus Christ
- The Living God -
Is Faithful
AND
Offers Eternal Life Free To All
Freely!

Truth Cannot Be Bent
Be Turned
Be Covered
Or
Be Colored!
Truth Stands Up On Its Own Merits! 

Truth Cannot
- By Man Nor Satan -
Be Lowered!

Truth
May Will
Be Cast Down In The Street
BUT
What Does That Change
When He That Is The Truth
Is High And Lifted Up
Settled
Reigning

ANDEnthroned
In Heaven?

What Does It Profit A Man
To Gain The Whole World
AND YET

Lose His Own Soul
When
For A:

"Lord, Save Me!"

He Can Leave Satan 
AND
His Like
To The Good Offices Of Christ Jesus 

The Eternal God!

Why Do We Trust
The Marked-For-Death Dying
When We Can Trust Wholly On Him
Who Conquered Sin And Death
By
- Of His Own Self -
From Death Arising
AND
Rising Up
Glorified
To Receive The Kingdom's Throne
AND
Not Accept The Words Of Those
Who Can't For Their Own Sins
Hope To Atone?

Why Do We Worry When
We Can Wait On Almighty God?


It Must Be Said ...

I Look Forward To The Day
When I Shall
- In Peace -
See My Lord Christ
When
Touch Me!
Handle Me! 
AND
Let Us Break Bread Together!
Will No Longer Be A Hope
BUT

The Thing Faith-To-Face Nice!

I Look To The Day
When Hope Is Realized
When All Self-Denials
Will Be Proved To Have Been Worth
All Of Life's Trials
When With My Own Eyes
In My Own Perfected, Immortalized, Flesh
I Shall Jesus

Who
- For My Salvation -
Took On Man-Death
To Get Me And My Kind
The Christ-Life
Which Is
The Way Back To The Eternal God
AND
Out Of The Decimating Clutches
Of The Evil One
Who Thought That He Could Kill ... God!
Oh, Foolish, Wicked, Satan.

Brethren, Beloved
We Know Of A Surety
That The Eternal God Is Not Mocked
So ...With Faithful Consideration
- By Contemplation -
Answer The Questions!


Do The Comparisons
AND
Of Your Own Life
- For Your Own Soul's Sake -
Take Stock
AND
Take Your Salvation
- Your Gift -
Free From The Living God
AND
Turn Your Eyes
- Fixedly -
Upon Christ Jesus
Who Paid Dearly
- How Much We Shall Never Know -
To Get You Me Us
Out
From Under
Satan, The Fraud!

Jesus Saves ... To The Uttermost!
Come To Jesus Now
AND
In The Great Day
- That Appointed Time -
Join
AND
Be 

A Forever Part Of 
The Heavenly Host!

It Must Also Be Said ...

IF
The God You Presently Serve
Requires You
- For Him It Her Them -
To Be Eyes, Ears, Mouth, Feet
Sustainer
AND
Provider
It Is Time To Trade Up
To The Living Loving God
Who Does Not Sleep
BUT
Loves To Count
AND
Account For
AND
Care For His Sheep!
He Does Them Safely Keep!

I Am ONE Of Them!
Won't You Join Me?!

Praise God!

Bless God!
Deny The Fraud

AND

Accept
The Righteous Man's Reward!
