The Cancel Culture Gets Canceled

In today’s Cancel Culture environment, individuals and organizations intentionally seek out others with whom they disagree. Trolls continuously search the web, television and radio for their next prey. Once they find a target, they declare all-out-war on the person and seek to ruin him or her on all social media platforms and endlessly try to… Continue reading The Cancel Culture Gets Canceled

Phantoms and Praise

We have what we think are people in our minds, but really they are merely phantoms of our imagination. Our memories, mostly those troubling ones, in some aspect, concoct a character of names, faces, images or events that are pieces of this phantom personage, lacking true substance, parts, but not of the whole, fragments, but… Continue reading Phantoms and Praise

Your Anchor

I will never forget the images of Christian Kurds/Arabs captured by Isis, lined up upon their knees. They were praying verbally to Yeshua to endure what was coming. Scripture reveals two important and related anchors in such senarios - Hope and Heaven's attention. As Stephen was martyred he looked up, " 'Look,' he said, 'I… Continue reading Your Anchor

The Spirit is in You

As a disciple of Yeshua, Believers do what He did. (John 14: 12; Rom. 8: 29; 2 Cor. 3: 18). The same Holy Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on every born again Believer as it was on Yeshua. Many reservations, qualifications, exceptions, distinctions and excuses come into my mind even as I write this,… Continue reading The Spirit is in You

Have You Asked For Victory?

          Yeshua said, "Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the… Continue reading Have You Asked For Victory?

These Times

I've been thinking we are in the "last days" for many years. When the Bible uses this term it sometimes refers to the age of Messiah's coming or return. Joel prophesied about the coming of Messiah which Peter quoted, "No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: 'In the last days, God says,… Continue reading These Times

A Safe Place

   Terror, torment, trepidation is loose in this world. The extent to which it effects each of us may vary, but the bubble that is American society itself is under attack as never before. Our model is Israel whom the enemy sought to destroy over and over. Their own leaders and influential groups often brought… Continue reading A Safe Place

God Is With Our Mouth

"But Moses said to the LORD, 'Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant, but I am slow of speech and of tongue.' Then the LORD said to him, 'Who has made man’s mouth? Who makes him mute, or deaf, or seeing, or blind?… Continue reading God Is With Our Mouth

His Work

God is at rest from creation, but He is working His will in mankind to gather a people destined for glory and to be in relationship with Him in Heaven. At the outset, Man fell through disobedience and has suffered under the influence of the enemy, Satan, a rebellious being. God is Sovereign and prepared… Continue reading His Work

All Kinds

I had some dealings with a very weird, unfriendly and ignorant fellow the other day. It was a business deal, so naturally it was all about money for him, but it was not the money that bothered me. Sellers seek to get the highest price while buyers seek the lowest, somewhere in the negotiations a… Continue reading All Kinds

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)

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

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

God Means It For Good

"So Joseph said to his brothers, 'Come near to me, please.' And they came near. And he said, 'I am your brother, Joseph, whom you sold into Egypt. And now do not be distressed or angry with yourselves because you sold me here, for God sent me before you to preserve life. For the famine… Continue reading God Means It For Good

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 Sin Offering

"Then he shall take the two goats and set them before the LORD at the entrance of the tent of meeting. And Aaron shall cast lots over the two goats, one lot for the LORD and the other lot for Azazel. And Aaron shall present the goat on which the lot fell for the LORD… Continue reading The Sin Offering

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

God’s People

This is not an exclusive club, it is open to everyone who believes. If you do not believe, then you should not feel rejected or disgruntled by those who do believe. Moreover, we all are capable of having a change of heart. From time to time we hear of the benefits and blessings of being… Continue reading God’s People

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

Fear The One Who Can Cast Into Hell

“I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! Are not five sparrows sold… Continue reading Fear The One Who Can Cast Into Hell

Encouragement Today

"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls." (1 Peter 1: 8-9). The world denies this and… Continue reading Encouragement Today

Our Hedge of Protection

"Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people, from this time forth and forevermore." Psalm 125:1-2. But you have come to Mount Zion and to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, to an innumerable company of… Continue reading Our Hedge of Protection

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
