The Light of Jesus? This Side of the Whirlwind


, , , , , ,

The Light of Jesus:

One evening in Sierra Vista, Arizona, 1985, Pastors Larry and Hermina Deason invited Bob and Amy Bates and Pam and I over to their trailer home for dinner. It was a nice evening with a surprise attached.

Following Hermina’s great dinner we all retired to their front room for a little conversation and music.  Pam and I were often asked to bring our guitars and tambourines whenever we socialized.

Near the close of the evening, just before making ready to head home, someone suggested a little prayer for closing a wonderful evening.  Wonderfully, such was not God’s plan.

Shortly after we started praying, I began to notice a warm, friendly, almost yellowish/golden light starting to form before my closed eyes. The light gradually became brighter and increased in its brightness and warmth until I thought someone was playing around, being silly and holding a lamp right up to and in front of my face.

Temple Mount Update 9/18/2017

Here’s a little update regarding the Temple Mount and Israel’s give and take on the subject.

  1. August 29th 2017 Jewish MKs (120 Knesset members) temporarily or possibly permanently returning to Temple Mount“Following discussions with Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit, the prime minister decided in early July that the ban on MKs going to the Temple Mount would be lifted for a period of seven days to assess any fallout from the move — though on Tuesday, the trial period seemed to have been reduced to a single day.”“The site, Judaism’s most holy as the site of the biblical Temples, remains otherwise off-limits to government ministers. The government and police have said they will assess allowing lawmakers to visit the site on a regular basis in the future.”

Starve Him Out! This Side of the Whirlwind

Starve Him Out!


Many years ago God sent my wife Pam and I to a small church in Sierra Vista, Arizona. The Church was called Shiloh and was pastored by Larry Deason.

I specify this name and church simply because there existed two churches named Shiloh in Sierra Vista at that time.

P. Larry baptizing my lil Girl

At any rate…

Pam and I had been going to Shiloh for nearly a year when my dear friend John “P” came up and said he had a word from the Lord for me.

John turned in his Bible and reads Numbers 33:55.

But if ye will not drive out the inhabitants of the land from before you; then it shall come to pass, that those which ye let remain of them shall be pricks in your eyes, and thorns in your sides, and shall vex you in the land wherein ye dwell (Numbers 33:55 KJV). Continue reading

Have You Seen the Mountaintop?

Waiting on the Mountain?

Have you ever wondered about those (misguided?) Christians groups who sold everything and moved up on some mountaintop to wait on the Lord’s return?

Were they just NUTS?

Or were they simply obeying what they believed to be the voice of their Lord?


Better yet, could it have genuinely been the voice of the Lord telling them to go up on that mountain for a reason other than Christ’s return even if Christ’s return was the reason they were told to go? Continue reading

New Wind 2

Thanks! 🙂

Before we begin I’d like to thank all my readers for their continued patronage. I did not make God’s rules, I simple report on insights provided by revelation. Neither I nor my post are infallible and should therefore be scrutinized appropriately. Second Timothy 2:15 says, “Study to show thyself approved unto God…” So, please leave comments or criticisms should you find discrepancies – theologically speaking anywhere within my posts.

Thank you!

New Wine?: True-Life 31

What is New Wine?

Paraphrased version of Luke 5:37:

No one pours “new wine” into old wineskins (you know the wine-bottles of yesteryear). Because when they do, the “new wine” will burst the wineskins; the wine will spill out and the wineskins will be ruined.

Burst Wineskin

Guess what, you are the wineskin.


The “New Wine” is the Word of God formed, prepared and fermented for this – today’s – generation. The New Wine applies to “that” movement of God which is being developed during your lifetime and this new “Work” the Lord is doing to fulfill His purposes for this new “Season, Stage or Generation” of God’s program for humanity.

Meeting Jesus: This Side of the Whirlwind

Do you know Jesus?

Want to?

It is more than possible to know Jesus in a real and personal way.  In fact, this is what the Lord, Jesus, wants.  He wants to know you and love you and  bring blessings into your life.  If you have never said the sinner’s prayer (which is just a format not a requirement) or asked Jesus to be Lord and Savior of your life you can do so today.

Kathy and the Holy Spirit

Many years ago I was a Roofing-Estimator and occasionally made minor roof repairs.

One early morning estimate came with an eye-opener and great temptation.

It was a fine spring morning  in Tucson, Arizona, North-West side as I was out to take measurement’s for a new roof on this Pueblo styled Condominium.  I had just met with the homeowner, a very pretty young women who had answered the door in a bit of an unprepared fashion for quests or repairmen.  She was very attractive and very scantily clad.  I was a 30 year old Christian male, not dead or too blind to be impacted by a beautiful near-naked-women.

Cashless or Tagged?


What does it take to infiltrate a society’s psyche with something that will destroy the citizen’s soul?



Time to develop some or all of the following:

  1. Make society familiar with the thing

  5. Advertise the utility or benefit with the product.
  6. Show an added convenience from using the product.
  7. Create real or pseudo disapproval in peers for those without the new product.
