Thank You Folks!


As I’m readying to log off, I see the stats are soon to roll over to 1,000,000 views! One million! Wow!

When I began this little blog my original intention was to just have a place to voice my thoughts or post something which interested me: I didn’t really think about anyone else ever reading it. But God had another plan, for He brought you into my life through this small corner of the Internet. Through your visits and comments, even when your comments strongly disagreed, you’ve helped to teach me many ‘truths’..you’ve helped me grow.

You’re all very much appreciated. I truly mean it.

  1. PJ…

    Your blog is the first I read in the morning and the last I read before going to bed at night. Your site has blessed me beyond words and has kept me informed on many things going on within the church and beyond.

    Even though we have never met, I feel like I know you personally. I think we may be close in age, so your perspective on life lived mirrors mine.

    May the Lord continue to bless and keep you…and keep on blogin’!

    Katie

  2. Because the purity of the gospel has been maintained on this site, I believe the Lord has blessed it. This, in the environment of the freedom of the many, is not an easy task. None of us have it all, as far as the whole truth of the Gospel, but there is a momentum toward it in your life PJ. As the chief moderator in this endeavor called Sola Dei Gloria; ..UNTO GOD ALONE BELONGS ALL OF THE GLORY!; you have done a good job. I’m sure there were days that you felt like pulling out your hair, or calling down fire on a heretic or two, or a choice adjective that may have painted some of these adversaries rather negatively, that escaped the confines of the holy part of your heart, and possibly slipped out of your lips;… but that is only human.

    We live in this world, and are faced with real criteria to wade through; and sometimes it’s more like an alligator infested swamp than the quiet waters of the whispering brook. It seems as this age is winding down, and the REALLY deceived are crawling out of the woodwork, it can get a little like a visit to the sanitarium, where everyone greets you with a sunny smile, while holding axes behind there backs. I think of the KOOKY CROWD…the Todd Bentley’s and Emma, with 31 resssurrrrections from the de-e-e-a-a-d!, or Patty King with her goofy blank stare muttering about jewels falling from heaven, or Bob Jones, or Rick Joyner, or the NAR crowd and the psycho-babble they pass on as the Gospel. Let us not forget Kim Clement, and his book, CALL ME CRAZY. Like the Devil, they are all a little crazy;.. like a fox.

    Mix that in with current events, and many holy encouragements from the remnant ministers and some good worship and reformation theology …[back to the roots theology..], along with a potent sense of humor! Hallelujah! ….and you have a mind… Juanita! It’s your mind! You are Sola!…and your musings and inquisitive reporting make it what it is, and those who contribute here all add to the magnetic energy that has drawn them here. This is how companies are formed. So, I am for one, grateful to have a venue to also express my ideas and the issues that proceed from my own walk with Jesus, and the convictions that He presses on me, and have a place that I can freely express them.

    Congratulations on ONE MILLION hits. Thank you for the privilege of being able to speak my mind in Christ about life as it is in this land called America. As we old hippies used to say; “It’s a trip!”

  3. Aha, I have been watching the stats creeping up to the million for the last three weeks, CONGRATULATIONS PJ.

    Although I only found you early this year, I am SO GLAD I did. So it is actually a THANK YOU to you for all you have put into this great blog site.

    May the Lord truly bless you with the next million………..:)

  4. congratulations pj – you have so blessed me with a whole variety of topics and many learning curves – thanks – also another secret of your success must be that like Mary Poppins you are – kind but firm… 🙂

  5. Yes, me too, Juanita!

    I want to add “my amen”, especially to this that Thomas wrote above:

    “….This, in the environment of the freedom of the many, is not an easy task. None of us have it all, as far as the whole truth of the Gospel, but there is a momentum toward it in your life PJ….”.

    There are a number of blogs I go to routinely. This is one of them. What Thomas captured in those few words cited above make a whole lot of sense in the clarity out of the confusion I experienced initially and continue experiencing, when I first came to this blog. I suppose many others have experienced the same joy because of its effect affecting the outcome of the daily death we die as Christians in the world, devils full.

    I will recall for you the event of the “cloud” at the ceiling vent that I was certain of being an angel, because “hot” air rises; certainly, surely this had to be a manifestation of an angel who was manifesting as a vapor!

    After careful scrutiny by several of you my senses were “trained” more accurately to discern between good and evil reports; and after a reexamination of the manifestation of angels, both demonic and the Elect, in the Scriptures, I began being more “on guard” when listening to such reports and in this case, it was because of a youtube video presentation on this very blog.

    I tend to believe all things and am weak at times on proving everything I hear, which gets me into trouble from time to time. We only know in part as Thomas said. Some of the trouble has turned out for me to be grave. Most of the time though, it’s an easy mistake easily shaken off by me or others after correction is applied to it.

    The gravity though of some of our error should not be minimized nor respected lightly. This fortune here with this blog has been of enormous benefit to me and countless others, now over a million, I suppose? Who doesn’t need a jolt daily? We are indeed to pick up our cross and die to error daily to be one of His counted, tested disciples. Error is all around us and even in our own flesh. This forum “makes” for humility and correction, reproofs, instruction and overwhelming Joy realized, possible!

    I would say, partly, being reinforced now by all the commentors, that you have discovered what this verse means and what Paul was addressing when he wrote this to the Ephesian Church:::>

    Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.

    Throughout history it has been a latent urge in God’s human Called and Elected creature to discover just who they are and what the work is God designed for them to work in the world devils full, by His Faith, once delivered to the Saints in their generation.

    Of course, this sort of means to that end was historically different in Paul’s day, or Calvin’s or even just as recent as Barth’s day, to spread the wider view of one’s workmanship in history. In your day, you can take some solace and comfort in the fact that thing, this blog, God had you birth was well known before the foundation of the very world where it finds a workmanship of His Bride’s “legs” and “feet” working.

    I look forward to a couple more things. Coming in here daily and mixing it up with you and others, is one of them! Living one day at a time permits this joy. Another thing I look to is the fulfilling of this Word of King David and with it I can heartily say amen to your work, this blog and King David’s words:::>

    1Ch 16:31 Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, and let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”
    1Ch 16:32 Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it!
    1Ch 16:33 Then shall the trees of the forest sing for joy before the LORD, for he comes to judge the earth.
    1Ch 16:34 Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!

  6. Congratulations PJ.
    It’s always worth it checking in for the day.

    Have fun and stay busy – Luke 19:13

    -The Orange Mailman

    P.S. I guess that means, “You’re welcome.”

  7. However pj you musn’t let this adultation go to your head: (not that you would but I thought you’d like the quote).

    Somebody once told John Bunyan that he had preached a delightful sermon. “You are too late”, said John, “the devil told me that before I left the pulpit”. Satan is adept in teaching us how to steal our Master’s glory.
    Spurgeon.

  8. 🙂 Thanks again guys… this tiny corner of the internet has become not only a blessing to me personally [because of you all] but a true joy to maintain.
