Two Crises (CRY-seez)

       Amy was still unmarried, but had recently delivered a healthy baby. She was now in the midst of continual fits of anguish with loud uncontrollable crying jags. I sought further facts on the premise of knowing how to pray for her and gathering an explanation. She was understandably distraught with regret for the passions… Continue reading Two Crises (CRY-seez)

Gosnell Movie

     Dr. Kermit Gosnell was an abortionist in Philadelphia whom this movie asserts is the most prolific serial killer in America. This movie is closely based on actual events and the court dialog is from actual court records. You might wonder as I did how an abortionist could be convicted of murder, given that abortion… Continue reading Gosnell Movie

A Higher Force

Mick Jones explained, "I always worked late at night, when everybody left and the phone stopped ringing. 'I Want To Know What Love Is' came up at three in the morning sometime in 1984. I don't know where it came from. I consider it a gift that was sent through me. I think there was… Continue reading A Higher Force

Morning Prayers and Tears

I see how meaningless my labors have been and are now. I bow down before King Yeshua from my remote solitary station with contrition and submission to worship Him, the light and glory of all creation. The self and it's nervous gyrating activity darting in random worthless desperate energy finally slows, runs down, shaking, uncontrolled… Continue reading Morning Prayers and Tears

Control Over Language

Forces modify language constantly, perhaps tracking the declining educational proficiency which also moves within a culture. The false but prevailing notion that "new is improved" can be evidenced by reading books written one hundred or even one thousand years ago. This is irrefutable as to language, but whether it is a demonstration of the second… Continue reading Control Over Language

Tyranny Today

         What constitutes government tyranny to you? Arbitrary and/or unrestrained power is the hallmark of tyranny, but if the governed neither object nor recognize the abuse, it can be accepted. All around the world this is true. On several occasions Chinese groups have protested against communist tyranny and for liberty and one leader was crushed… Continue reading Tyranny Today

Just Then

There are five uses of these words in the New Covenant. I have found that God's timing is perfect and the significance of His timing bears consideration. In the Old Covenant, there are many examples like the choreography of the Israelite deliverance through Esther and Mordecai under King Xerxes from the enemy Haman. Joseph's life… Continue reading Just Then

Toliet Paper Shortage

750 The truth about the ongoing toilet paper shortage is elusive, but actually makes a lot of sense. The panic triggered by an irresponsible media's attempt to gain political advantage in the headlines caused some people to stockpile certain nonperishable items. One sinister person tried to hoard hand sanitizer for profit and was prosecuted by… Continue reading Toliet Paper Shortage

Discernment in America

         Within the congregation of Believers there is the gift of discernment. "Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. To one there is given through the Spirit a message of wisdom, to another a message of knowledge by means of the same Spirit, ...to another distinguishing… Continue reading Discernment in America

As A Child

We were keeping our three granddaughters, the youngest is almost three, and we sat down to eat. I asked who would like to say the blessing? The older sisters said, "Hailey can pray." I said, "Ok", and she began to pray. My hearing is weakening and Hailey is not the clearest speaker, so I had… Continue reading As A Child

The Victim Class Deception

There is a new status of preference promoted in the media today. It traces is roots back to affirmative action and the EEO protected classes of race, gender, religion, national origin, color, age, and disability. A new class is being crafted and promoted, sexual preference, meaning initially gay or lesbian, but expanding to transsexuals, who… Continue reading The Victim Class Deception

God’s Congregation

Today there is a shaking in American and the Church because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Most unprecedented is the impact on the Church, gatherings have been outlawed, free association and assembly has been severely restricted. Panic is imminent, not so much in regard to the Church, but among the public in general. What is the… Continue reading God’s Congregation

Covid-19 Pandemic

I read a well-respected Minister's analysis of prophecy from many different streams of the Church regarding this current international crisis and it's origins. He concluded there was not a clear convincing and accurate prophetic message, as yet. I concur, and recognize that many believers do not even believe God speaks in such ways and/or to… Continue reading Covid-19 Pandemic

Holy Spirit Impartation

"On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, 'Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as Scripture has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.' By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in… Continue reading Holy Spirit Impartation

Acceptance

I made a small sign with a black marker and some white cardboard. I wrote in large bold letters "I ACCEPT", and put it on the wall. It was during college that I had a personal revival of sorts and was filled with the Holy Spirit. This term, "filled" is from decades of perspective and… Continue reading Acceptance

His Christian world view of love, charity, and  justice impacted his life and Presidency. He was a Southern child during the end of the Civil… Continue reading Woodrow Wilson

Freedom From Religion

This organization has gone to court to remove a memorial to World War I veterans; they have sued to remove the national motto, "In God We Trust" from everything; and brought suits to prohibit the free exercise of religion which is protected in the constitution. They claim the exhibition of a cross is offensive and… Continue reading Freedom From Religion

A Theory For Atheists

If you are a devoted atheist you will need some "Science" to support anything you believe, or at least a theory that has not been fully discredited. This is the status of science today, as so much of what is called fact can not be established through the scientific method here and now. Therefore, theories… Continue reading A Theory For Atheists

The Smartest One in the Room

The person who thinks this about themselves treads upon a slippery narrow ledge that is crumbling beneath their feet. I knew a man who was surrounded by his chosen advisors. One advisor was extremely loyal, but to a fault, so that when he might have prevented wrong, he was unable to contradict his leader. One… Continue reading The Smartest One in the Room

Prayer Note

I kept thinking about my friend and brother in the Lord while I went about my business. When I ran an errand, when I helped the neighbor, and as I was cutting firewood; so I decided to call and find out what was happening with my friend. As soon as I asked, he described the… Continue reading Prayer Note

Media Bias  

It is indisputable that there is a fascist/socialist bias in the major media entities. Formerly, liberal was a term used to describe this bias, but in recent years they have abandoned liberal thought for fascist socialism. These same entities like to assert they are the fourth branch of government. Proceeding the election of Donald Trump… Continue reading Media Bias  

Shelby Bottoms Greenway

This is a bike trail in Nashville, Tennessee. We were there recently and parked at Two Rivers park across from the Grand Ole Opry house and Opry Mills shopping center. We crossed the Cumberland river on a very nice walking bridge with nice views of the river and city. We continued after a steep winding… Continue reading Shelby Bottoms Greenway
