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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Word Power

Saul was zealous for God and considered persecuting followers of Yeshua God's work. Yeshua met him on his journey and said, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" (Acts 9: 4). Paul might have answered, "As a service to God, I'm persecuting the followers of Yeshua, whom I consider to be in opposition to the [...]
