Love my country, my family, my friends, and above all the Lord Jesus. I was raised in the Northest, and have also lived in California; Florida; and Texas; as an evangelist and pastor. I have traveled a lot, and have made a lot of friends, and been of some help to a few people, for which I am grateful.

How to Think

"To be carnally minded is death, to be spiritually minded is life".

This is simple enough to understand. But to live this way is to train ourselves in all cases, and at all times, to walk in the truth as set forth in the word.

When we are weak; "I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me".

When we are sick; "by His stripes we were healed".

When we are in lack; "My God shall supply all my need according to His riches in Glory in Christ Jesus".

When we don't see; "the Lord is a light unto my path".

When we would fear; "we have been given the Spirit of power, and love, and self discipline".

Years ago there were in the christian bookstores little "promise boxs", these had scripture for spirit, soul, and body. From your inner life to walking in the presence of God. From your concept of yourself to your concept of God.

These are great for helping to train your spirit to agree with God. I came across a valuable quote:
"faith is not opposed to knowledge, but to sight".
The knowledge of God's thought's toward us are to bring us to faith in the Word of God.

Jesus stated two errors to the scribes: not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

If we train ourselves to know what the Word says, then we will experience the power of God.

On the one error we will have greatly advanced. The "knowing of the power of God" will be a result of our worship of Him. The greatest thing in our lives is not to do or know or walk according to God. But to love and know and fellowship and worship our Father.

Then we will be mature and stable and complete.

I'm not who I was

I'm tired of preachers, authors, sermonizers, and people who lack knowledge telling me who I am. The natural man doesn't know the things of the Spirit.

I am born of God, a being not of this world.

I have the nature, essence, spirit, character, and love of my Father.

I live, abide, and display the fullness of Christ who is my life.

My life is to do the will of my Father.

My inclination is to do good.

My joy is to love.

His words to me are live and powerful.

His thoughts to me are to do me good.

His heart is to bring me to complete maturity.

The way is by faith.

The life is by grace.

The blessings are Yes, and Amen.

Can someone believe.

Can someone learn.

Can someone know.

See that the way of God is higher than the way of man.

See that the salvation is complete.

See that the end is sure.

Call those things that be not as though they were.

Walk in the things of heaven.

Glory in God who has by His own will has accomplished so great a salvation.
