Decades passed entrenched in great, deep abiding hope Continue reading
Remember, our needs are met in Christ Jesus even as the Flowers of the field.
It’s just that sometimes we don’t feel or understand where God is going with our lives.
For your edification and enjoyment…
In great beauty you are spun from soil and air,
Light from distant sun and seed of formers fair;
Then with great beauty once again you are spun,
Until in your juniors your face smiles towards distant sun.
What are you learning?
If you were called upon to prepare a group of people for a wide-ranging existence…
Where they needed to love the unlovable and show kindness to those who did not seem to deserve kindness…
What kind of environment would you prepare for your people?
Would you not create an environment where the principles and characteristics of kindness and love were not generally displayed and seldom offered on a daily basis?
Wouldn’t you instead put your people face to face with Continue reading
Oh God, what if –
I were to You obey –
With all my life, through all my days,
endure my cross, obey Your will,
regardless the pain or strife I feel
Bear humiliations and sorrow’s
Brave disgrace and live bereft
Face the choice of a martyr’s short, short life
Just to live my life for Christ?
One of the more important NEW revelations for this generation of the Saints is a revelation on “The Second Half of Christ’s Covenant”.
Why is this revelation so important, you might ask?
Well, I’m glad you asked…
The Second Half of Christ’s Covenant is the Great Consummation.
I know, most people call this period the Great Tribulation Continue reading
In the temple of our human souls stands an altar of solid unblemished gold
Where polished and burnished, flawless and without seams,
Our hearts are revealed both young and old while living out illusionary themes,
And though without question our hearts are not empty,
They are filled with visions of our deeds, our lives, our desires of flesh.
Yet our living souls in perfect image – where no other can truly read – nor gaze.
It is a place of grand communion – a temple impossible for another soul to brave.
Neither father nor mother nor lover or friend can share this great chasm
Or its unobtainable great seat,
For only Jesus our Savior, Jesus our friend can commune with our soul in our lives without end.
This unique human place where God and human soul can chance meet,
Where God can become friend and our soul He can mend,
Beyond treasure, beyond prize in our short diminutive lives,
Christ abiding in the Temple of our Souls as Bridegroom with Bride,
Friend and befriended, alive and ever alive.

Most of us know that love and sex are worlds apart. Nevertheless, nearly every outspoken morally minded person has had to endure the absurd justifications for errant and immoral sexual conduct BY those caught in our spheres of influence.
How often have you encountered a guilty abuser justifying their aberrant sexual relationship using this phrase, “But we love each other”?
Objectively consider this fact… we DO NOT have sex with 98% of the people we truly love AND YET, somehow, we are able to continue loving those individuals! Go figure?
We all recognize that love is neither a requisite nor obligate for sex.
We also know that sex does not mean love.
In fact, if you had sex with that other 98% of those you love and don’t have sex with… you’d destroy your relationship with those individuals, probably forever. Continue reading
