Men imagine the Most High is moved by sentiment, rather than by principle. – Arthur W. Pink
The Book of Hebrews is little in the eyes of the Church when it comes to study, and it is often put on the back burner, and yet, it is the only book in all of Scripture that even mentions the priesthood of the Lord Jesus, and deals with all of the benefits of that priesthood to us, as the children of God.
The qualifications of a priest is set so high that it is beyond the ability of any organization or any man to satisfy God’s requirements. God wants us to understand (as redeemed citizens of heaven) we have no need of an earthly Aaron, or any priest on earth; for only one Priest is approved of God, and that is the Man (the glorified Man) Jesus Christ.

What were the two greatest messages ever delivered to mankind? and who delivered them?
The multitude which does not reduce itself to unity is confusion; the unity which does not depend upon the multitude, is tyranny. –-Blaise Pascal –
Also quotes from Spurgeon, J. N. Darby, and others
God has set a certain order. In everything that He created He established it’s proper place, and proper position . . .
The first mention of the eyes of man is in Genesis 3:5. For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil. His statement of enticement, and ye shall be as gods, is not all that he used, for he told the woman that when your eyes are opened you will know both good and evil. Notice: he left out the discernment of good and evil. Discernment is knowing the difference between them both; just having the knowledge is not good enough. She already knew good because she was in the presence of the Almighty God, it was evil that she lacked in knowledge, understanding, and experience.
Looking at the panorama of the odyssey of mankind throughout history, we see him on foot, on beasts, in chariots, wagons, cars, and planes, yes, even rockets; and what we see and hear is that God has put a voice in every man, it speaks softly through the conscience that men should repent and turn to God. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent; in the image of God created He them.
Numbers like most sub-topics in Scripture can not be forced into a doctrine, or be followed as an obsessive subject. Anything that will detract you and cause you to venture outside of the main purpose and plan of God is to be avoided. It is God the Father, and God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit who is the center of our focus.
The soul is more precious than all the treasures of this earth, and yet, we ignore the existence of the soul, we ignore it’s presence, and we ignore it’s need.
The greatest lie is that which is nearest to the truth. – J. B. Stoney

The Open Mind and The Closed Mind Experience has proven to me that the most closed mind can be found in those who proudly espouse being open minded. They are so closed minded that they refuse to even consider that God exists. They are so closed minded that they refuse…
