From Mr. Webster



The infusion of ideas into the mind by the Holy Spirit; the conveying into the minds of men, ideas, notices or monitions by extraordinary or supernatural influence; or the communication of the divine will to the understanding by suggestions or impressions on the mind, which leave no room to doubt the reality of their supernatural origin. All Scripture is given by inspiration of God. 2 Tim 3:16

While listening to a program on TV the other day, I heard one of the commentators say: “Religions are just “a set of ideas.” My first response to that was a kind of indifference; but the more I had time to process the statement, the more it began to disturb the very fiber and sacredness of the things I hold to be true about the great God I love and serve.

A Set of Ideas

Elder John P. Young



An “idea” is an opinion, conviction or principle which is the product of human thought. The truth of God is given personally by Him and revealed to His children by His Spirit; and is not the product of human thought whatsoever. For if the word we receive is the product of human thought to any extent; then it is to that same extent corrupted with the values and thoughts of man.

In Psalms 12:6 David wrote: “The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.”

There is, however, one way which might lend some credence to what this commentator said; for if he would have said: “Worldly religions; with all sort of religious rites, having their origin in human thought and opinion; are nothing more than the exercise of a set of ideas.” Then that might have had some degree of standing.


The words of God have never passed through the minds of men for validity, nor issued forth from the most noble tongues, to make them Holy or to give them source: They issue from a source far above the ideas of the human mind and the thoughts of men. They are from God Himself; they are His own doctrine and speech distilling upon the spiritual ears of His children, publishing the perfection and greatness of our God, Whom we worship in Spirit and in truth.




What is the definition of the Bible Word – EARNEST = King James Translation 8 Times, but only 3 as described below: Defined as: (Noun) To pledge. Paid in advance to bind a contract. An Assurance or token of something to come. The Spirit of God is the PLEDGE.

The EARNEST is what CONFIRMS an AGREEMENT, and ASSURES the RIGHT to the THING AGREED to, and IS A PART OF IT, and LESSER THAN IT, and is NEVER RETURNED, so the Spirit of God CERTIFIES the RIGHT to the HEAVENLY INHERITANCE; JESUS CHRIST is the FIRST-FRUITS of ETERNAL GLORY and HAPPINESS, of the SAME KIND with it, and as he is ENJOYED PARTIALLY and in MEASURE by the SAINTS NOW; however is LESSER THAN the COMMUNION which they SHALL HAVE with the SPIRIT, with the FATHER and The SON, here- after, for the BEST THINGS ARE RESERVED TILL the LAST, ALWAYS CONTINUES, NEVER REMOVES MORE, or is EVER TAKEN AWAY. 2nd Cor.1:22; 2nd Cor. 5:5; Eph. 1:14.

"It was but a little that I passed from them, but I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go, until I had brought him into my mother`s house, and into the chamber of her that conceived me."
(Solomon 3:4)

The first three verses of this song is telling us how that Solomon had sought the Lord and could not find him, reminds me of when I first began seeking the truth as it is in Christ Jesus. We go about seeking and hunting in the wrong places, but in time we are led to the true church. No one has to tell that it is the truth, because the Spirit of God testifies to our spirit that this it. O, but the beauty then do we find in Christ, the peace that passeth all understanding, and the closeness that we find in his presence. Then we can cry out as Solomon, I found him whom my soul loveth: I held him, and would not let him go. There is a song that we sing that has these words, "Greatest name on mortal tongue, greatest name that was ever sung."

Brother George


Found of the Lord:

Where were you when the Lord found you? He found Jacob in a desert land, in a waste howling wilderness; He found Elijah hiding in a cave; He found Daniel in a den of lions; He found Moses in an ark of bulrushes; He found Saul of Tarsus on a road to mischief. Each one in a different circumstance naturally and spiritually, but all were covenant children. When any one of the Lord's elect finds Him, it is because they were first found of the Lord.
