The Kingdom and Age to Come
1 Yahweh reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; Yahweh is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.
2 Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting.
3 The floods have lifted up, O Yahweh, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves.
4 Yahweh on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea.
5 Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O Yahweh, for ever.
Thoughts of wisdom. Thoughts of love. Fill your mind with them. Crowd all else out. They are wholesome and healthy. They are joyful, purifying, upbuilding.
We must be solid and consistent from outer surface to inner core. If we relax into foolishness or fleshiness in our non-ecclesial activities, our "holiness" is a sham and a delusion. True saints are saints at all times, under all circumstances, or they are not saints at all.
Holiness cannot be donned or shed at whim or convenience
Bro Growcott - Search Me O God
We cannot come into contact with the mind of God in this age except in the Bible, all else is the mind of man, tricked out in much gaudy literary finery and deceptive promise.
Nothing but bitterness and death can at last result from walking in the paths of darkness, however picturesque and entertaining they may be. The mind of God alone, accepted and imbibed and assimilated in the daily pondering of His testimonies, can give peace and joy even in this life, and as for the life to come, the argument there fails us altogether from its overpowering strength.
If the course of godliness is an inconvenient course, we have every incentive to pursue it. God never asks any man to do anything without applying an adequate motive in addition to the powerful motive that comes from the admiration and love for the Omnipotent wise and good Father of all.
