WHY I DO, WHAT I DO



I HAVE BEEN ASKED ABOUT WHY I DO CERTAIN THINGS LIKE PUT SO MUCH SCRIPTURE IN MY MESSAGES, TYPE IN ALL CAPS, ETC.  SO THIS MORNING'S MESSAGE IS GOING TO BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT BECAUSE I WANT TO EXPLAIN A FEW THINGS.  YOU WILL NOTICE I DO PUT A LOT OF SCRIPTURE IN MY MESSAGES RATHER THAN JUST GIVING YOU THE CHAPTER AND VERSE NUMBERS.  SOME PEOPLE TELL ME THIS IS A WASTE OF SPACE BUT I FEEL THAT SOME PEOPLE WOULD NOT BOTHER TO LOOK IT UP IN THE BIBLE AND, LET'S FACE IT, SOME PEOPLE DON'T EVEN HAVE A BIBLE AND THE ONES THAT DO, SOME OF THEM DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE THEY ARE.  THIS IS A SHAME BUT TRUE.


YOU WILL ALSO NOTICE THAT THE SCRIPTURES ARE IN A DIFFERENT TYPE THAN WHAT I NORMALLY WRITE.  THIS IS BECAUSE I COPY AND PASTE THEM RATHER THAN TRYING TO TYPE THEM.  THIS WAY I KNOW THAT I HAVE QUOTED THEM CORRECTLY.  

 

SOME PEOPLE DON'T LIKE MY TYPING IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE THEY SAY THIS MEANS I AM SHOUTING.  WELL, SOME PEOPLE NEED TO BE SHOUTED AT BUT THIS IS NOT WHY I WRITE IN ALL CAPS.  I DO THIS BECAUSE, FOR ME, IT IS A LOT EASIER AND FASTER. 

 

I HAVE BEEN TYPING FOR 65 YEARS SINCE I WAS 16.  I TOOK TYPING AND SHORTHAND IN SCHOOL, BECAME SECRETARY TO A COMMERCIAL FREIGHT AGENT AT SOUTHERN RAILWAY WHEN I WAS 18.  I MOVED TO WASHINGTON, DC, AT AGE 19, TO BE THE SECRETARY TO THE ASSISTANT TO THE VICE PRESIDENT OF SOUTHERN  AND WITHIN A YEAR I WAS ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT TO THE VICE PRESIDENT.  BACK THEN MY FINGERS MOVED MUCH BETTER THAN THEY DO NOW AND IT WAS NOT A PROBLEM.

 

ONE OTHER THING THAT I HAVE BEEN ASKED ABOUT IS WHEN I SPEAK OF HOLY SPIRIT I DON'T PUT "THE" HOLY SPIRIT.  HE IS ONE OF THE GODHEADS JUST LIKE JESUS AND GOD.  YOU WOULDN'T CALL JESUS, "THE" JESUS OR GOD, "THE" GOD.  THEY ARE GOD, JESUS AND HOLY SPIRIT.  THREE DIFFERENT BEINGS BUT ONE GOD.




I JUST WANTED ALL OF YOU TO KNOW WHY I DO CERTAIN THINGS IN MY MESSAGES.  I FEEL THAT GOD HAS GIVEN ME AN OPPORTUNITY TO SPREAD THE GOSPEL THIS WAY.  AS I HAVE SAID BEFORE, I REALLY ENJOY THIS AND IF IT HELPS SOMEONE IN THEIR EVERYDAY LIFE OR, THE MOST IMPORTANT IF IT BRINGS SOMEONE TO ACCEPTING JESUS AS THEIR SAVIOR, THEN I FEEL I AM DOING WHAT JESUS WANTS ME TO DO.  I LOVE ALL OF YOU AND PRAY THAT YOU WILL BE HEALTHY, PROSPEROUS, HAPPY AND FULL OF GOD'S SPIRIT.  


GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
