I have been involved in a lot of church work my whole life, but I consider Yeshua to be everything and the hidden life in Him. I was part of the Jesus movement revival of the early 1970's and I have a heart for Israel.

  • Now and Later Part I

    There are two realms in reality, the physical and the Spiritual, the temporal and the eternal, the secular world and the Church.  God is Lord of all.  We have a physical body and a spirit.  This is simple, but also… Read More ›

  • Spiritual Acts

    Why do I have this yearning to serve the Lord?  “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith — and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God — not by works, so that… Read More ›

  • The Sum of All Things

    The Apostle John said, “Jesus did many other things as well.  If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.” (John 21:25).  Many… Read More ›

  • The Table of the Lord

    God made us so that we eat to live, so He made a world of food for us.  Yet, we are not like cattle or horses that graze the grass upon which they walk.  We eat at a table, generally… Read More ›

  • Don’t Get Satisfied

    An important thing I learned selling, is not to get satisfied.  This seems strange, perhaps wrong, but it is right in this context.  When you are selling, you have little control over actually making a sale, if you’re honest in… Read More ›

  • I Am Not Who I Seem

    My weakness and obscurity hide my true identity.  Like a plain blade of grass I blend into the vast lawn of humanity.  My true self is further concealed by the shadows of the great and powerful, caused as the light… Read More ›

  • Thoughts – Part 2

    God knows our thoughts. “You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.  You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways.  Before a word is on… Read More ›

  • Thoughts – Part 1

    One thing about getting older is that you have more history to think about and  more time to re-think it.  A coworker once explained to me that he felt he lived his life in his head thinking about things.  If… Read More ›

  • Thomas a Sign

    Thomas was a disciple of Yeshua and one of the twelve apostles.  To many he is remembered as “Doubting Thomas”, based on an event after Yeshua’s resurrection.  “Now Thomas (also known as Didymus), one of the Twelve, was not with… Read More ›

  • The Power of Forgiveness

    “Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently.  But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted.” (Gal. 6:1). This scripture is deep in truth and power…. Read More ›

  • A Fountain of Life

    “…and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be… Read More ›

  • Contrasting Actions

    I recalled the words of a song, by Children of the day, “New Life”, that says, “I’m so glad you decided to turn your life over to Jesus. I’m so glad you decided to let Him in”. The Lord talked… Read More ›

  • Child of Promise

    What do we know of Isaac? He was the promised son of Abraham and Sarah in their old age. He was to be sacrificed by Abraham, but God intervened and provided a ram. He married Rebecca whom God selected and… Read More ›

  • God’s Initiative

    All through the Bible we see Interactions with men initiated by God. God called Noah and Abraham, He blessed Issac abundantly, He gave promises to Jacob. God revealed Himself and conversed directly with Moses. God chose David as King and… Read More ›

  • A Glimpse of Heaven

    Yesterday, The Lord gave me a glimpse of heaven. A glimpse is enough to see and recognize but not to behold in fullness, it is only partial. I was driving down the highway and remembered someone’s offense toward me; I… Read More ›

  • Ascribe to the Lord

    This morning I was a little tired and distraught by a night of frustrating dreams. As I started the day, my mind turned to my duty and my desire, which seemed alike – how can I love others today. With… Read More ›

  • Deception and Enlightenment

    Where did we get this idea that God does not, nor will not, work within and upon His creation of which we are a part? Our physical senses are our primary connection to the world around us, but they are… Read More ›

  • The Power of Chance

    Everyone seems to agree that in chance there is hidden great power. The theory of evolution is based on chance events that happen randomly over millions of years. This theory is now generally accepted as fact and forms a basis… Read More ›

  • Three Cups of Deceipt

    I’ve read some books and watched some movies lately that got me thinking about worldly perspectives. The book “Three Cups of Deceit”, by Jon Krakauer, is an interesting book about the founder of Central Asia Institute which was organized to… Read More ›

  • Times in This Age

    What is God about during our time? He is bringing salvation to many, perhaps multitudes. Today is the day of salvation, and it began, perhaps with the coming of spiritual Elijah, John the Baptist, the forerunner of Messiah Yeshua. His… Read More ›

  • A Modern World’s Snare

    Has this modern world in which we live failed us? Have we missed out on the processes that enable growth in virtue and wisdom? Have the baits of this modern society left us unsatisfied and longing for the substantial, the… Read More ›

  • The Opposite Spirit

    This is a term I first heard from a friend of mine to describe the ways of God’s Spirit. The Holy Spirit is contrary to our natural inclinations. Yeshua taught us to love our enemies; to give out of our… Read More ›

  • God’s Way – Led by the Spirit

    I’ve observed some things that disturbed me, things in the church that are based in worldly thinking and the good intentions of men.  Who can discern the way in which the Spirit of God leads? When God led the people… Read More ›

  • Enter the Narrow Way

    A profound spiritual experience seems necessary for one to engage the pathway of truth. Yeshua described it as being born again, which is certainly a profound personal spiritual experience. It happened to Zacchaeus when Yeshua called him out and offered… Read More ›

  • A Three Faceted Blessing

    What amazing grace and love believers have received, to be called Children of God. (1 John 3:1). It is a theme of our praise to God. I remember years ago someone came up with a bumper sticker that said, “Found… Read More ›
