Dedicated To My Sweet Wife Mary

These prose writings are written in memory of the deep love she had for her Lord and Saviour, for her husband, and for others. These prose writings express the deep love we had for each other, a love that was rooted and grounded in the Lord Jesus Christ. In all the thirty years of our ministry together for our Lord Jesus Christ, she always stood by me. In the darkest of valleys, and there were many, she was always there, with her words of encouragement, with her sweet smile to chase away the blues.

The Sunset Years Of My Life *

The Lord has blessed me with years beyond Psalm ninety verse ten which is so written

The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years,

yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

Since God has not named the years beyond four score years.

I have taken the liberty to call them my sunset years.

“yet is their strength labour and sorrow;”

“for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.”

Yet I believe those last phrases could apply to these sunset years.

For God has given me the strength and grace for these years,

they have been years filled with rejoicing as the last phrase is saying,

because in these sunset years I have watched many more of my

fellow saints have flown away to their home in heaven.

With God’s Grace and His strength from May,

first 1999 until the present date of September,

first 2013 I have been a servant of our precious

Lord Jesus Christ in various assignments,

I intend by Gods Grace and strength to,

continue until my Lord takes me home.

Some of my many favorite Scriptures

And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed. De 31:8

Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption. Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice: And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you. Eph 4:29-32

 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. To him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 5:10-11

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:6-8

I thank my God upon every remembrance of you, Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy, Philippians 1:3-4 


The Thoughts And Ways Of God’ Are A Mystery To Fallen Man

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither

are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. Isaiah 55:8

For as the heavens are higher than the earth,

so are my ways higher than your ways,

and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9

The thoughts and ways of God’ are a mystery to fallen man.

Yet the Saints of God may know them,

when they fear God with all their heart and soul,

and seek the wisdom of God for their lives from His Holy Word.

The Days Of Our Years

God in His Holy Word has given us the years of our life span

In Psalm ninety verse ten it is so written with these words

The days of our years are threescore years and ten;

and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years,

yet is their strength labour and sorrow;

for it is soon cut off, and we fly away.

The first two decades of days are foundation days of our life span.

Are foundation days if God so wills set the course for the days to follow?

If our parents are true Biblical Christians their children will live the same days.

It is the responsibility of our Biblical parents to set the course for these days.

If our parents are worldly Christians their children will live the same days.

If our parents are true Biblical Christians their children will have the same days.

Some God will call to go to some far flung mission field and go, some will refuse.

Some God will call to serve full time in a local church and serve, some will refuse.

God will call all to serve part time in a local church and serve, some will refuse.

Those that refuse to go and those that refuse to serve full or part time will suffer loss,

of rewards at the Judgement Seat of Christ and will be so ashamed with no crowns.

If our parents are worldly Christians their children will have the same days.

Some will change course and become Biblical Christian’s some, to serve and some not.

Some God will call to go to some far flung mission field and go, some will refuse.

Some God will call to serve full time in a local church and serve, some will refuse.

God will call all to serve part time in a local church and serve, some will refuse.

Some will not change course and will go the way of their father the devil to be cast into hell.

For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 3:11

Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; 1 Corinthians 3:12

Every man’s work shall be made manifest:

for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire;

and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. 1 Corinthians 3:13

If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon,

he shall receive a reward. 1 Corinthians 3:14

If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss:

but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. 1 Corinthians 3:15

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 1 Corinthians 3:16

If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy;

for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” 1 Corinthians 3:17


O! My Lord! What Can I Do For Thee

O!  My Lord!  What Can I Do For Thee?

then you can be one of My disciples,

because I am first in your life and no one else.

for you will not stumble in My light.

then you can share my gospel with others,

so they too will walk in My righteousness.

O!  My Lord!  What Can I Do For Thee?

You can give your whole heart,

then I will welcome you home with open arms,

saying!  Well done my good and faithful servant.

 


The Doors Of Opportunity

As one travels down his God chosen hall of life,

one passes by many, many doors of opportunity,

one must remember every door passed by in ones hall of life,

is a door that is a closed door of opportunity.

Which door of opportunity is God’s will for my life?

should be the question of those who seek God’s door of opportunity,

for one must remember every door passed by in one’s hall of life,

is a door that is forever a closed door of opportunity.

How can I know which is the right door of opportunity for me?

Only by being in Gods Holy Word and listening to the Voice of Opportunity,

that dwells in those who have the Holy Spirit God indwelt in them,

for the Voice of Opportunity will guide you through the door of opportunity.

How do I listen to the Voice of Opportunity in my Hall of life?

only by being in His Word daily and walking in the Holy Spirit,

only by confessing my sins daily as I walk down my hall of life,

for then and only then can I hear the Voice of Opportunity?

What if I open the wrong door of opportunity in my hall of life,

a question asked by those who seek God’s door of opportunity,

many never open any doors of opportunities in their hall of life,

because they are not walking close to the Voice Opportunity.

What should I do if I open the wrong doors of opportunity?

With a broken heart lift up your soul in prayer to the Voice of Opportunity,

do not despair, forsake God and make a shipwreck of your hall of life,

wait upon the Voice of Opportunity and He will open the door of opportunity.

For the Voice of Opportunity’s greatest desire is to use your hall of life,

for in His vineyard there are many doors of opportunity,

for those who will put their faith in Him and serve Him faithfully,

the Voice of Opportunity will open many doors of opportunity.


Breath of Spring

As I sit in my office looking out the window,

snow is falling covering the earth with a white,

blanket of winter and is blowing its final,

gasp soon the late winter storms will pass.

Soon the earth will awaken from its winter sleep,

the buds of plant life will began to swell with new life,

then burst forth with the beauty of new life,

spring flowers will burst forth with all their beauty.

Soon God’s landscape will burst forth in its full color,

trees will burst forth in a carpet of green leaves,

birds will return and fill the air with their song,

farmers will begin to till the ground for their crops,

yes, spring in all its beauty is a testimony of God’s Creation.


My America

My heart is greatly troubled and exceedingly sorrowful,

as I reflect upon the state of this once great nation,

a nation that became great because of its foundation,

a nation once blessed greatly by God now forsaken of God.

No longer is there justice in this once great nation of ours,

the cry from every corner is equality for everyone, not justice,

that my dear friend is communism or socialism, not democracy,

for this nation was founded upon the Biblical principle “Justice For All.”

No longer do we have great men of stature leading this nation,

men who have high morals, who are honest and speak only the truth,

men who have only our country’s agenda and not their own personal agenda,

men today who can be bought at any price, and not for their own personal interests.

No longer is the White House a place where every red blooded American,

could point with pride and say from their heart my president lives there.

Today it has been desecrated, and lies in immoral ruin never to rise again,

to its former place in the hearts of God fearing true red-blooded Americans.

No longer is the home ordained of God where Dad is the breadwinner,

 where the mother stays at home raising their children to be God-fearing citizens.

Where Dad is the spiritual leader of the home and is responsible to God and,

 the wife is submissive to her husband and the husband is submissive to the Lord.

Yes I consider myself a God fearing American and once very proud of this nation.

I fought in the Pacific and in Europe during World War II and now 100 % disabled.

Now this country as a whole has been forsaken of God for its immoral pervert behavior.

Now this nation is on the path of self-destruction and will no longer exist as a nation.


Sentinels Of Our Great Nation

Dear God, founder of all nations and kingdoms.

Who founded this great nation by God-fearing men,

sentinels who paid the supreme sacrifice since its birth so we,

might have freedom to worship and lead a peaceful life.

Dear God, founder of all nations and kingdoms.

Watch over our loved ones who are the sentinels of today,

protecting our freedom here at home and abroad so we,

might have freedom to worship and lead a peaceful life.

Dear God, founder of all nations and kingdoms.

We thank you for loving us so very much that you sent your,

son your Eternal Sentinel to die upon a Cross for our sins,

so we might have freedom from the penalty of death and hell,

so we might have a mansion in heaven with Gods Son.

your Eternal Sentinel the Lord Jesus Christ


God’s Elder Servants

God’s elder servants never retire from God’s chosen ministry, they are active in the shadows,

we just hand the torch of leadership to God’s chosen trained younger men,

praying they will seek God’s wisdom and seek wise counsel from elder servants in their ministry,

praying they will be wise leaders in their chosen ministry and serve as God chosen men.

Even though God’s elder servants are no longer at the helm

We pray for those at the helm that they will fight the good fight,

through the glorious power of Almighty God while at the helm,

never once comprising the cause of Christ in the midst of the fight.

Even though God’s elder servants are no longer at the helm

We pray for those at the helm that they will stay God’s chosen course,

by walking, resting and abiding in Christ while at the helm,

never once forsaking the cause of Christ for the worlds course.

Even though God’s elder servants are no longer at the helm

We pray for those at the helm that they will keep the faith,

by preaching and teaching the whole counsel of God while at the helm,

never once comprising the truths of God’s Word for popularity.

Even though God’s elder servants are no longer at the helm

We pray for those at the helm that they will pray for those at the helm,

when they pass the torch of leadership to those chosen to take the helm,

they will continue to serve in the shadows when they become elder servants.

Paul spoke these words when his appointed time came to depart.

For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 2 Timothy 4:6

I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. 2 Timothy 4:8


Like The Days Of Noah-Continued (2)

But God In His Mercy, Grace, and Love

Provided a way man whom He had made from clay that he,

might escape the coming wrath of a Holy God and be cast into Hell.

He sent His Son wrapped in the robes of clay,

to agonize in prayer in the Garden.

But God In His Mercy, Grace, and Love

He sent His Son wrapped in the robes of clay

To suffer humiliation at the hands of very wicked men.

Where He was spat upon and smote upon by very wicked men.

Where He was mocked and scourged until His visage was marred more than any man.

But God In His Mercy, Grace, and Love

He sent His Son wrapped in the robes of clay.

To suffer untold pain on that old rugged Cross.

Where God’s Son was forsaken by all.

Where God’s Son cried out “it is finished.”

But God In His Mercy, Grace, and Love

He sent His Son wrapped in the robes of clay

To allow the cords of death to bind Him in a grave.

in a garden is where God’s Son tomb was located,

where He was laid for three days and nights.

But God In His Mercy, Grace, and Love

He sent His Son wrapped in the robes of clay

He arose on the morning of third of the day,

from that tomb in the Garden,

victor over death, hell and the grave.

Today God Offers To Whosoever Will Come To Him

To put their trust and faith in His Son,

so that whosoever will come,

the wrath of God will not abide upon them,

and they will have eternal life in His Son,

with a Home in Heaven not in Hell.

In God
