“BE OF GOOD CHEER,” Oh Christian! That is exactly what our dear Lord exclaimed in John 16:33b. We have the hopeful expectation BY FAITH that things will ultimately improve, life will eventually get better, and our days of misery and suffering on earth are numbered. Did you know that suffering is as much a part of the Christian's life as salvation? Philippians 1:29, “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;” When we suffer, we suffer with our dear Savior, heirs together of ALL THINGS! Romans 8:17, “And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.” Romans 8:32, “He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?” Oh, it is wonderful to be a Christian!!! BY FAITH, a Christian can be cheerful in suffering, in rejection by peers, in sorrow from loneliness, from bodily afflictions due to poor health, and from all that life can throw at us!! THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR BLESSINGS ON ME!!!
Let me preach a bit against sin here. We are now living in a wicked, ungodly, untoward, ungrateful society in the United States! I am disturbed when I see young women adorned with tattoos (tramp stamps), which are marks of worldliness. I don't care if you got a tattoo for a loved one who died, tattoos are worldly! If you already have one, I would never deliberately hurt your feelings; what's done is done! I am preaching to those of you who still have your untarnished Birthday Suit...lol! Your “Birthday Suit” is the suit you were born with (i.e., your body). I think the most beautiful women are plain gals who wear no makeup, no tattoos, no fake implants, no plastic surgery; just a wonderful woman! Granted, a little paint on the old barn never hurt anything, but some women look like a Tammy Faye Bakker clown! Just like cooking a great meal, the key to using spices or makeup is in moderation. Whether spices or makeup, the purpose of their use is to compliment, not dominate. Those ugly tattoos don't come off!!! Call me old-fashioned, I don't care; God made the human body the exact way He wanted it, unmarked by man's art! There is nothing as ugly to me as a 50 year old woman covered in green tattoo ink, looking like a sailor.
Americans have lost respect for the sacredness of life, marriage, bedroom and the human body; evidenced by the evils of abortion, public nudity, filthy television, tattoos and an epidemic of fornication! The average American young woman today is a bar-hopping, boozing, feminist, slutty, fornicator! Having “a relationship” today is merely a clever way of diminishing the awfulness of sin! Someone needs to call a whore a WHORE! When a young woman says: “I'm not in a relationship right now,” what she actually means is: “I've temporarily quit my whoring around!” You know it is true!!! I say that kindly with God's love, as a King James Bible-preacher! America's pulpits are dry, dead and void today of tough Bible-preaching. We need a whole new breed of Spirit-filled preachers in America, weak men who live on their knees in prayer, reviving the fiery preaching of EVANGELIST BILLY SUNDAY (1862-1935)...
By the way, Pastor Jack Hyles met Helen Thompson Sunday (aka, “Ma Sunday,” 1868-1957). May I say, young ladies, GET MARRIED before giving some bum your most prized possession—your virtue! It is so tragic, but true, that women today are as mere fire-hydrants for men who are filthy dogs!!!
The only thing uglier to me than a tattooed woman is a woman who doesn't smile. A person's smile speaks much concerning their spiritual condition. I smile everywhere I go when I meet people, because I have the joy of the Lord in my soul. I CHOOSE TO THINK ABOUT GOD'S LOVE TOWARD ALL HUMANITY!!! If you think hate, you will hate; if you think love, you will love! I control my thought life, as the Holy Bible teaches, by yielding my thoughts to Christ. 2nd Corinthians 10:5-6, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.” This is not thought-control, it is walking in the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-25).
