Figured since it’s been awhile since last post and life keeps chugging along, it would make sense to put this out there.

First and foremost is the wonderful news regarding my lovely wife Lisa…cancer free!! Praise God!!!

With that vain attempt of the enemy behind us, I want to share a couple of the things that the Lord is keeping at the center of my daily walk with Him.

One is the realization of how much this life we live is all about our faith. Faith makes us sure of what we hope for and gives us proof of what we cannot see (Hebrews 11:1 CEV). Without faith NO ONE can please God (Hebrews 11:6)…it is key to us being victorious, yet is continually being challenged/tested. From the beginning, where the tempter posed the question “Did God really say that?”, it has been the tool satan uses to destroy and immobilize individuals. Just as the disciples asked the Lord to “help us increase our faith”, it needs to be the same pursuit by all Christ followers. Sobering for me is to ponder the Lord Himself wondering…when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth? (Luke 18:8 AMP) It is clear that this is the battleground we war on…

The other key thing God is really having me wrestle through is this whole mindset of walking in love. The “church” seems to be really trying to determine what that means…especially with the recent SCOTUS decision on same-sex marriage, but quite frankly for as long as I have been part of God’s family (28+ years). The confusion (stoked quite a bit by unbelievers and encourage by the master of deception) of who are we to judge or you can’t tell people they are off track, just need to love them, or some similar variation of that. Yet my Bible is clear that all have sinned and fallen short, hence the need for a Savior. If people aren’t aware of that, then no matter how much we love them, they will never realize their need. If someone doesn’t have a sense of judgement upon their actions,  how will they come to the place of addressing their need to change (repent)? The gospel is not just that Jesus loves you, but because of our fallen nature, Jesus came to demonstrate that love. We must not shrink back from making others aware of that sinful nature.  Jesus didn’t, the prophets didn’t, the apostles didn’t, nor will any that are truly devoted to Him.

There is plenty more stirring within me, with the things I touched on, along with much more. But I get the sense that this is good enough for now.



Here’s the solution…

If you are searching for answers to all the chaos and confusion that is so prevalent in our world today, there is hope!

Whether it is questions about all of the animals mysteriously dying, or the continued occurrences of violence taking place, or maybe the devastation of flooding/mudslides/earthquakes?  Don’t forget the looming economic collapse that is about to hit America.

We are in the midst of being judged for our turning from God.  After starting out with our eyes fixed on His plans and purposes for us as a nation, we have ignored every opportunity to follow His desires, and instead are going down the path of destruction which is always motivated by selfishness

If there is one quality our nation has embrace more than any other, it is the pursuit of our own desires (i.e. selfishness).  Desires for stuff (material possessions), pleasure (sexual lusts), indulgence (food and drink) are creating the dysfunction that comes with such pursuits.

We are reaping what we sow.

And this is just the tip of that iceberg…don’t forget our callousness toward the value of life (over 52 million wiped out, with the vast majority of them being ended due to the “inconvenience” they present).  It’s ironic how the “news” organizations have been woefully quiet about the “health clinic” in Pennsylvania where the butchering that happened is truly tragic.  Yet the outrage and media coverage that focuses on a deranged lunatic is on 24/7??

We are reaping what we sow.

All very sobering if you are willing to look at things taking place, but sadly most will brush aside.  Buying into the lie of people like Oprah or our current President and the rest who are selling a false meaning of hope. 

There is only one TRUE hope for us!  His name is Jesus and if people don’t turn to Him they will be sentenced for their rebellion.

This is your chance…cry out to Jesus, admit you have chased after the things of this world, sought joy and happiness in temporary pleasures, that you desire to be forgiven and want Him to save you.

It’s your only hope…
