Let’s revisit a truly important issue!
I’m keeping this simple because the “Meaning of Life Series” is pretty comprehensive. Continue reading
Scripture supports itself!
Who can accurately learn and understand the message found in God’s Word?
Well, according to Isaiah 28:9–13 and Hebrews 5:12-14, God teaches and enlightens those who mature in the pursuit of His Word and His Will:
For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed into the image of his Son… (Romans 8:29 NIV)
So who will HE teach? Continue reading
Days of pastel blues and lusterless reds could fill the inevasible blind pages to come. I have seen the splendor of my own antecedence, or rather the privation there of. Once bound in a twirl of youthful folly now I marvel, can they not see? I think they too, as I once, choose drunkenly, willfully to be ensnared by the false comfort of never‑ending youth; the pervasive, there will be time.
Though I have traveled many roads and stumbled on paths bleak, yet onward I plod; defiant, I stand in the face of waning possibilities. Though it may seem as brackish waters to the weak of spirit, nevertheless, I thrive. I have decided to dominate that which lies waste. Failure, you shall not take me!
I swim in a sea of spring-tide, the deep brims with life about me, yet I find Continue reading
Don’t doubt God has a plan for your life. (Romans 8:29 “Them He did foreknow…)
More significantly, God has a plan for the entire Body of Christ and world as a whole (Revelation 17:17).
Sometimes unpleasant circumstances take place before God’s purposes reach fruition (Genesis 15:13-16).
During such campaigns the saints can sometimes endure great struggles and persecution and even death for God knows the greater good and sometimes we are His tools. Continue reading
Ever endure and never give up!
Decades passed entrenched in great, deep abiding hope
In joy of life we danced and sang and loved and drank in life’s inordinate soul
Valiantly I fought to keep the love of life alive
Alas alone my partner drank my strength till hope did die
Yet on I plod, in endless hope to find again that spring
But I had not a partner true to save me when I screamed:
Help, save me, catch me quick for in the mire I sink
For hope long lost can drag one down beneath the hopeful spring.
For abides the endless depth of never ending hope
From fools who plod alone until hope has drowned their soul.
Then from said soul the spring of hope is fed so others stride
Until they feed eternal hope until they too do stride.

Oh folly of man, oh arrogance of my kindred, whilst thou would not humblest thyself in the knowledge of thy God and recognize His greatness amidst the bottomless quality of thy immeasurable comparative insignificance, others accomplish His will whilst thy bosom remains empty.

How about another question?
Did you know — that as a Christian you are saved by the blood of the Lamb? There is NO OTHER name under heaven by which you MUST be saved.
This is a True statement!!!
The majority of Christians would answer this question in the affirmative.
And it is true; we are saved by the blood of the Lamb; Continue reading
How about a question? What is the 2nd half of Christ’s Covenant?
Here’s the “simple” answer. The 2nd half of Christ’s Covenant is the Judgment half of Christ’s two-part Contract with humanity for Salvation. Was that really a simple answer? You’d have to decide for your self. 🙂
What contract — you might ask?
The two part contract between God and humanity which offers people Salvation. Continue reading
God loves bigots, liars, homosexuals, adulterers and gossips et’ cetera.
To know where this is going open the following link in another window:
To be a homosexual or Trans-sexual or Transvestite is no different than being an adulterer; rather, the issue is not their chosen lifestyle but their attempts to influence children to sexually inappropriate lifestyle choices long before these children have a sense of their own sexuality.
There is an active movement taking place which is designed to intentionally confuse children of their own sexual identities. To deny this is absurd.
Do we want Adulterers actively promoting adultery to little children?
Do we want Liars vigorously encouraging our babies to be liars?
How about Pedophiles, do we want exuberant (as in playing dress-up) efforts made to promote child rape and abuse by Pedophiles as they openly presence pedophilia to babes?
At what age is it reasonable for non-parent personalities to promote any level of sexuality to other people’s children?
The LGBT and like-minded elements of our society are actively promoting and even enlisting by default 3 and 4 and 5 year olds in their deviant lifestyle choices.
Undeniably, the historic and global perspective for aberrant behavior in all societies for thousands of years has recognized homosexuality, adultery, lying, thievery, murder and pedophilia as aberrant and immoral behavior and lifestyle choices.
Just because the current societal perspective on what is right or wrong does not seem to recognize the destructive nature of these foolish life choices does NOT negate what is and has been considered wicked by humanity for a thousand generations.
So somehow this singular generation is wiser than thousands of past generations.
Should make you think! Unk.

Open our eyes Lord so that we might see your ways!
If you knew for certain Jesus would return within the next ten years — what would you do differently?
We, the Body of Christ, entered the last stages of the Church Age, what the Bible calls The Time of the Gentiles in 1948 when Israel reemerged as the Sovereign State of Israel.
For the children of Israel shall abide many days without king or prince, without sacrifice or sacred pillar, without ephod or teraphim.
Afterward the children of Israel shall return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They shall fear the LORD and His goodness in the latter days. (Hosea 3:4-5 NKJV)
You may ask, how does this passage confirm we are in the Latter Days? Continue reading
