“Where are the churches where the river flows today? Where are the pastors who preach from the over flowing waters? Where are the prophets who have abandoned their plans and swim in the river? Congregations are not dying for the food of the word, as much as they suffer dehydration for the lack of the water of life!!!!”
CR Oliver

“And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead…”
– Revelations 3:1

“He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water”
John 7:38

Where there is no water there is no life.

“You are to think of yourself as only existing in this world to do God’s will. To think that you are your own is as absurd as to think you are self-created. It is an obvious first principle that you belong completely to God.”
– William Law

Wholly for God
To be holy His

Quote for Today

FW Robertson

“You reap what you sow — not something else, but that. An act of love makes the soul more loving. A deed of humbleness deepens humbleness. The thing reaped is the very thing sown, multiplied a hundred fold. You have sown a seed of life, you reap life everlasting.”
― F.W. Robertson

“Be not deceived; God is not mocked:
for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap”
Galatians 6:7

William Secker

“There is no ascertaining the quality of a tree but by its fruits. When the wheels of a clock move within, the hand on the dial will move without. When the heart of a man is sound in conversion, then the life will be fair in profession. When the conduit is walled in, how shall we judge of the spring but by the waters which run through the pipes?”
William Secker

“Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them”
Matthew 7:20

Quote for Today – John Boys

Quote for Today

“The touchstone of piety towards God is charity towards our brother”
John Boys

When the Church of Jesus Christ misses the mark of the true expression of Christ ruling within the life of His own, the fire and wonder of Love is extinguished and relationships become shallow and carnal. The victory of the prince of this world is the lethargy of a faith which is in word only.

Love cannot exist without truth. Truth makes the inner man true and the verity and substance of His love flows from there. It is truth which frees the heart to love as God loves: “Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free”.

Love is the fruit of Truth

Brian Troxel
