500 Bible Verses and a Ramble(r)

scrambler(The car is an AMC Rambler, specifically, a 1969 SC Rambler, lovingly referred to as a Scrambler.  Not very creative, I know, but I was a wee lad, fresh out of diapers, when the moniker was coined, so don’t blame me.)

I will praise Thee, O Lord, with my whole Mind; I will shew forth all THY marvellous works!

}}Philo will now TYPE, because he cannot cut and paste, a slew of Bible verses and other quotes without commentary.  Maybe.  Most quotes that are not from the Word of God will be credited.  The Bible verses will not–go and find it for yourself.  Some of the Bible verses are abbreviated or paraphrased.  If you’re one of those old-fashioned legalists who cannot abide someone’s putting a colon where the KJV has a semicolon, or partial “verses,” get over it.{{

This one thing I do:  forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of GOD in CHRIST JESUS.

If any man thirst, let him come unto ME and drink.  He that believeth on ME, as the Scripture hath said, out of his Belly shall flow rivers of living water.

Jabez called on GOD, “Oh that THOU wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that THINE hand might be with me, and that THOU wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me!”  And GOD granted him that which he requested.

THOU wilt shew me the path of life; in THY PRESENCE is fullness of joy; at THY right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

…saith the LORD, “But to this man will I look:  Even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at MY WORD”

…I AM come that they might have life, and that they might have it MORE ABUNDANTLY

Now unto HIM that is able to do EXCEEDING ABUNDANTLY ABOVE ALL that we ask or think, according to the Power that worketh IN US, unto HIM be the Glory in the Church by CHRIST JESUS throughout all ages, world without end.  Amen.

Delight thyself also in the LORD, and HE shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

But know that the LORD hath set apart him that is Godly for HIMSELF: the LORD will hear when I call unto HIM.

For the Gifts and Calling of GOD are without repentance.

The LORD thy GOD in the midst of thee is MIGHTY; HE will SAVE, HE will rejoice over thee with joy; HE will rest [you] in HIS LOVE; HE will joy over thee with singing.

Whatsoever things are True, whatsoever things are Honest, whatsoever things are Just, whatsoever things are Pure, whatsoever things are Lovely, whatsoever things are of Good Report, if there be any Virtue, and if there be any Praise, THINK ON THESE THINGS.

In everything by Prayer and Supplication with Thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto GOD, and the Peace of GOD, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through CHRIST JESUS.

Peace I leave with you; MY Peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

For GOD hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of Power, and of LOVE, and of a SOUND MIND

AS THE HART PANTETH AFTER WATER BROOKS, SO PANTETH MY SOUL AFTER THEE, O GOD!  MY SOUL THIRSTETH FOR GOD, FOR THE LIVING GOD!

ONE THING HAVE I DESIRED OF THE LORD, THAT WILL I SEEK AFTER:  THAT I MAY DWELL IN THE HOUSE OF THE LORD ALL THE DAYS OF MY LIFE, TO BEHOLD THE BEAUTY OF THE LORD, AND TO ENQUIRE IN HIS TEMPLE.

But without faith it is impossible to please HIM, for he that cometh to GOD must believe that HE is (the I AM), and that HE is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek HIM.

Speaking to yourselves in Psalms and Hymns and Spiritual Songs, singing and making melody in your mind to the LORD, giving thanks always for all things unto GOD and the FATHER in the Name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

For the Promises of GOD in HIM are YEA, and in HIM AMEN, unto the Glory of GOD

Being confident of this very thing:  that HE WHO hath begun a good work in you will perform it until  the day of JESUS CHRIST

For HE saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of Salvation have I succored thee:  behold, NOW is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of SALVATION

The ANGEL of the LORD encampeth round about them that fear HIM, and delivereth them

O! Taste and see that the LORD is GOOD!  Blessed is the man that trusteth in HIM!

AND I WILL RESTORE TO YOU THE YEARS THAT THE LOCUST HATH EATEN…

For we are HIS workmanship, created in CHRIST JESUS unto good works which GOD hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

You don’t have to be bound by the limitations of your sin or by your past or by those who would drag you down.  You GET to be the man who doesn’t have to live in that dark place any longer.  You GET to be FREE.  And you don’t have to earn it:  the price has already been paid!  (See Romans 8/31-39, especially v 37) ~Philo

Psychiatrists are in the business of putting people to sleep whom GOD is trying to wake up. ~Erwin Lutzer

~Thomas Jefferson on judicial tyranny:  “You seem…to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all Constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.”

The last version of Windows that was an actual improvement over its predecessor was Windows 95.  All other versions since were just changes for the sake of change.  And changes in order to capitulate to the lowest-common-denominator:  the illiterate, dumbed-down drones that the US indoctrination (you’ve heard it called education) system creates.  ~Philo

Often it is believed that Genius drives people to Madness.  I’d like to posit the opposite:  that the Madness generates the Genius as the man inside tries everything, EVERYTHING to ascend from his darkest hell. ~Philo

It is in the quiet crucible of your personal, private sufferings that your noblest dreams are born God’s greatest gifts are given in compensation for what you’ve been through. ~Wintley Phipps

As I have matured in my walk with the LORD, I have discovered that GOD is easy.  HE is easy to reach if you’re pliable and submissive.  If you’re willing to crawl naked through a long, dark tunnel of broken glass and spiders, there you’ll find HIM, and there you’ll find the real you.  ~Philo

A Christian ought not hide the brokenness and the cracks in his life.  He should let JESUS the CHRIST shine through those cracks.  When he gets to the Other Side, he’ll discover that those cracks have become Jewels in his Crown.  ~Philo

The Right to Freedom being the Gift of GOD ALMIGHTY, it is not in the power of man to alienate this Gift and voluntarily become a slave.  ~Samuel Adams

Silence in the face of injustice, oppression, tyranny, or other wickedness is, at best, cowardly servitude.  As well, your acquiescence could be considered aiding and abetting the enemy.  ~Philo

~Benjamin Franklin, alleged deist:  “The longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that GOD governs in the affairs of men.  And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without HIS notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without HIS aid?”

“Clearly, a federal law which is contrary to the Constitution is no law at all; it is null, void, invalid.  And a supreme court decision, WHICH IS NOT A ‘LAW,’ HAS NO ‘SUPREMACY’–even if it is faithfully interpreting the Constitution.  So it is the height of absurdity to claim that a supreme court decision that manifestly violates the Constitution is the ‘supreme law of the land.'”  ~William Jasper (emphasis Philo’s)

“In Jesus’ Name, I’m an overcomer, and I’m coming back at you…!” ~Dr. Tony Evans

“TTFN, Ta ta for now!” ~Tigger
