Exhortations by Robert Roberts

Seasons of Comfort Volume 2

Life in True Perspective # 1

Divine truth - many ingredients; Human life now vanity & vexation, grief & sorrow; Seek the truth of the matter; Fear God, keep commandments, the whole duty of man; Past days, memories of good, an illusion; We are as the grass; Death came by man, by man came resurrection; God reveals Himself, calls out a people, creates a holy nation with God-given laws; The Bible a fact providing a true hope; Whole earth to be filled with God’s glory; Serve the Lord.

Without Faith It Is Impossible To Please God #2

Believe that HE is; He is a Rewarder to those who diligently seek; Existence, trial, suffering; Comfort derived - God is Love; No character fit without fiery trial; Pleasure - spiritual death; Trial brings qualification, development for future use; Joseph’s example; Endure evil; Mere intellect of Truth not enough; Go on to perfection; work out your salvation; It is the 11th hour; The Lamb shall dwell in the midst.
