  17. "MOVE FORWARD" – GEN. Chuck Yeager

  18. Matthew 7:13- “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.

    Matthew 7:14- “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.

    Isaiah 62:10- Go through, go through the gates, Clear the way for the people; Build up, build up the highway, . . .

    Proverbs 16:17- The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who watches his way preserves his life.

    Isaiah 35:8- A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it.

    Stay on the straight and narrow road of life

    Do you know the road your life is traveling on?

    On the spiritual journey to discover you

    If you desire spiritual success stay on God's path of righteousness

  19. I can't help but think that General Yeager left this world at the right time. He lived during the greatest era in human history. We are now at the beginning of the long downward slide of our society.

    But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.
    Revelation 21: 8
    But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
    Romans 5: 8
    But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
