Club Forever

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 John 2:15

Most of the Walt Disney parks have an exclusive area known as Club 33, a VIP lounge modeled after the private areas of the 1967 World’s Fair. Walt Disney wanted an area where he could conduct business and entertain high-income guests. Club 33 locations are hidden in the various parks, and most tourists walk by them without knowing they’re there. It takes years to join the club. There’s a $33,000 initiation charge plus an annual $15,000 fee.

As for Walt Disney himself? He passed away six months before the club’s official opening, so he never experienced the luxury he designed.

All our lounges and luxuries and worldly trappings disappear from our view the moment we pass away, so it’s best to live as unattached to them as possible. On the other hand, the followers of Christ can look forward to Club Forever—our eternal inheritance in the new heavens, new earth, and New Jerusalem. We can’t afford the admission cost, but Jesus paid it for us.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus, look full in His wonderful face, and the things of earth will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace.

Proverbs Chapter 19…

Verse 1- “A man who isolates himself seeks his own desire; He rages against all wise judgment.“ There are only two different people in the human family, save and unsaved. God is really color blind…

Verse 2- “A fool hath no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.”

A modern proverb- “If I stop to think before I speak, I won’t have to worry afterward about what I said before.”

Verse 3- “When the wicked cometh, then cometh also contempt, and with ignominy reproach.”

A modern proverb- “Some persons cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.”

Verse 8- “The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.”

A modern proverb- “Be considerate. Most people know how to express a complaint, but few utter a gracious compliment. The bee is seldom complimented for making honey; it is just criticized for stinging.”

Verse 14- “The spirit of man will sustain his infirmity; but a wounded spirit who can bear?”

A modern proverb – “Joy is the flag that is flown in the heart when the Master is in residence.”

Verse 24- “…and there is a Friend that sticketh closer than a brother.”

Jesus is the One! Jesus is the friend that will stick closer than a brother. He is our Savior. He loved us enough to die for us. He says “…lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world…” (Matt. 28:20) and “…I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee” Jesus gave us this promise: “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3). Do you know Him? He is a wonderful Friend…

The Day of Atonement…

And this shall be an everlasting statue unto to you, to make an atonement for the children of Israel for all their sins once a year. And he did as the Lord commanded Moses (Lev. 16:34).

The Day of Atonement is the only day of mourning and fasting that God had given to His people. This day was to be observed until the permanent and eternal day for sin came . That was fulfilled by the death of Jesus Christ.

“Man of sorrows!” what a name

For the Son of God who came

Ruined sinners to reclaim!

Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude,

In my place condemned He stood;

Sealed my pardon with His blood;

Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Guilty, vile and helpless, we;

Spotless Lamb of God was He:

“Full atonement!” can it be?

Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

“Lifted up” was He to die,

“It is finished,” was His cry

Now in heav’n exalted high;

Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

When He comes, our glorious King,

All His ransomed home to bring,

Then anew this song we’ll sing:

Hallelujah! what a Saviour!

Root of Bitterness…

Hebrews 12: 14-15- Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

“ I went to my psychiatrist to be psycho analyzed to find out why I killed my cat and blackened my wife’s eyes. He put me on a downy couch to see what he could find, and this is what he dredged up from my subconscious mind. When I was one, my mommy hid my dolly in the trunk and so it follows naturally that I am always drunk. When I was two, I saw my father kiss the maid one day, that’s why I suffer from kleptomania. When I was three, I suffered ambivalence from my brothers, so it follows naturally that I poisoned all my lovers. I’m so glad I have the lesson it has taught, that everything I do that is wrong, is someone else’s fault.” Anna Russell.

Proverbs 12:4

“ A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.” Proverbs 12:4.

The first part of this verse makes us think of those women mentioned in the Old Testament. Eve, despite listening to the servant must have been a wonderful lady. First Peter 3:6 tells us that Sarah was a model wife. Jochebed was Moses mom, another remarkable woman.

The last part of this verse should bring to mind Job’s wife. She was not much of a help to him. She could very well be described as “rottenness in his bones.” Interestingly, Satan took away everything from Job, except Job’s wife. Hence her advice, curse God and die. Thanks Honey…

To keep your marriage brimming, With love in the loving cup, Whenever you’re wrong, admit it; Whenever you’re right, shut up. Ogden Nash.

Psalm 116…

“I will offer to you a sacrifice, Of thanksgiving and call on Your name.” Psalm 116:17

The word “thanksgiving “ comes from the Hebrew word “today” and it means two things: first is to give thanks by the spoken word, and second, it means to give thanks by an action.

Our acceptance of God’s Covenant love should be followed by our actions. We become God’s missionaries!

From “The Complete Psalms In Meter by Ryan Stewart.


Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth. Proverbs 27:1

I read some research by psychologist William Morriston who reported that 94% of the 3,000 persons he surveyed were enduring today in order to get to tomorrow.

Do you know anyone like that? Perhaps you are one of those.

Tomorrow, you’re going on vacation. Tomorrow, you’re going to get the house cleaned. Tomorrow, you’re going to start your diet. Tomorrow, you’re going to balance your checkbook. Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow.

The only problem is … tomorrow never arrives. When it gets here, it is today. And today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday.

It is always today. Act accordingly!
