Watts’ hymns

HYMN 110. (c. m.) Death and immediate glory. 2 Corinthians v. 1, 5—8. Isaac Watts (1674–1748) THERE is a house not made with hands, Eternal and on high; And here my spirit waiting stands, Till God shall bid it fly. Shortly this prison of my clay Must be dissolv’d and fall; Then, O my soul!... Continue Reading →

Thank You!!!

Just as the value of The Giver far exceeds the total value of all His gifts, so to Whom we are thankful is more important than what we're thankful for! Thank you great, eternal Triune God- Father, Son, and Spirit! The Father chose a people and gave them to His Son, the Son came and... Continue Reading →

From Isaac Watts…

Cheap and Easy Doctrine

“He who sells cheapest shall have most customers; the devil knows that it is a cheap and easy doctrine which pleases the flesh, and he doubts not but he shall have customers enough.” (Thomas Watson)

Great men of God??

There are no great men of God... just tiny, unworthy, sinful men who are touched, changed and blessed by a merciful and kind and faithful and great God!! Enough of the celebrity and star worship in the church. Enough of being impressed by clay! "Father ...glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify Thee...:... Continue Reading →


Beware of any so-called spokesmen for God that only speak/write/blog/sing about smooth, desirable, ear-tickling things (See Isaiah 30:9,10) and leave out the hard sayings and demands ----like repentance-(Mark 1:15 and it's accompanying fruit-Luke 3:8,) grace that leads to godliness (Titus 2:11-15),  obedience (Romans 6),  suffering for His Name (2 Tim.3:12), the Lordship of Christ (Luke...
