A Most Criminal Cause of Poverty!!

"Much food is in the fallow ground of the poor, and for lack of justice there is waste." (Proverbs 13:23, NKJ)



One of the most criminal causes for poverty is exploitation! I received a letter from a friend who's been doing missionary work in Africa. He recently visited Tanzania. I was shocked when I learned this that he wrote:



"Tanzania, listed as one of the poorest countries in the world, may well be in dollars per capita, but in vegetation, produce, water, gold… Continue

Don't Waste the Recession

Don't Waste the Recession.



There is much good to be found in the recession, if you look in the right places. Our consumer society and economy had overheated as Americans and citizens of other developed countries craved more and more consumer goods--material objects that are purchased, used, and are eventually relegated to storage or a landfill. The hunger for an increasing amount of consumer goods led many to live beyond--well beyond--their means, often using expensive credit--money… Continue

My Ponderings about Wealth and Poverty.

I've been pondering about wealth and poverty. I seem to do that a lot.



Why are some people rich? Why are some people poor?



The Bible says that they have ONE thing in common...





So, if it is the Lord who has made some to be poor and some to be rich, why then should we try to change our financial state. Shouldn't we say that this is the Lord's will for me to be rich/poor? Why should we help those who are poorer… Continue

Ask God To Explain It

Do you ask God for answers to all your questions? Maybe you are one of a large number who suppress some of their questions, hoping that God won't notice they are wondering. This might happen to you when you have a question about the meaning of a scripture. Often, people think that God expects them to simply understand what is written since, after all, they are a child of God; therefore, they should not have trouble making sense of His Holy Word, right? When this happens, it's time to tell… Continue

Can you hear the party in heaven???

The angels are having a party tonight!!



Our prodigal niece has come home!!!



She left a few months ago. She didn't want to have anything to do with us or God anymore. But guess what???



He had other ideas!! He is like a hound dog!! He hounded her. He wouldn't give her any peace. And, when she was stoned, she'd hear Him talking to her... "K, come back to Me!!" This happened every time she got stoned.



And He allowed the evil spirits to have a hay-day with… Continue

Citaten van C.S. Lewis - Nederlandstalig

Citaten van C.S. Lewis – Het Leven

“Je zult nooit weten hoe sterk je in iets gelooft tot het een kwestie van leven en dood is.” “Als je denkt dat deze wereld een plaats is die simpelweg voor ons geluk is bedoeld, dan zul je deze vrij onverdraaglijk vinden: als je de wereld beschouwt als een plaats waar je opgeleid en gecorrigeerd wordt dan ziet het er niet zo slecht uit.” – God in the Dock (Engelstalig)



“Eén van de dingen die een mens van de andere dieren… Continue

WORD OF THE DAY

When you internally create a need of self worth, then you will no longer have the need to delay the good things in life.

God is LOVE

Hello everyone: God is love! He gave everything He had just for us! He taught us how to truly love and he still leaves us an option to either love Him back or not. But He still loves us no matter what we choose. I chose to love Him and give to Him everything of mine for His divine purposes that others may see Christ in me! Surrender is the most wonderful, freeing experience in the world! May God bless all of you and may you experience all the love God freely gives to you! In His Love and Care,… Continue

How I Study a Bible Passage (2)

The FIRST step is DISSECTING (as I showed in the previous post).



The SECOND step is UNDERSTANDING what is writen.



These are the things I look at and ask, in no particular order:



** THE CONTEXT - What comes before and what comes after?

** CROSS REFERENCES - What do other parts of the Bible say about this? The Bible is a progressive book of God's revelation, so the later revelations generally come later in the…

I Know ..Who Is My Lord !!!!

I know He is the beginning, so why do I worry about the end?

How I Study a Bible Passage (1)

I feel this may be of benefit to someone, to help you study and understand a passage of Scripture. I want to share here how I do it.



The FIRST thing I do after reading the passage is to dissect it into manageable parts, so I can find out what the passage is really saying. I was asked to look at Deut 6, so I'm using this as an example. (The text is NKJ):




Deut 6:1-9 - THE GREATEST…

COMFORT FOR GOD'S CHILDREN







Why do believers suffer?



Comfort for God's children:







Why is there suffering in the world and why do we as Christians suffer.



Why do bad things happen to good people? Why do Good things happen to bad people ?



If there is a God of love why does He allow suffering, especially to those He loves?



We live in a world from the…

WAY too HEAVY!!

At our Tuesday night Bible study, we'd been studying Hebrews. We've just come to the end and finished chapter 13 a couple of weeks ago. It only took us just under two years. (You can't rush these things!!) :-)



Anyhow, rewind eight chapters back!! We were looking at chapter 5 and talking about the priesthood.



When I think of a priest, I'd think of someone dressed in… Continue

Words for the Weary!

(Posted last July on one of my other blogs...)



Here are some thoughts from the Bible on "Yokes and Burdens" ...







Firstly, some words from Jesus:

"At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight. All things have been delivered to Me by My…

Cause & Effect - Gods universal principle

Galatians 6:7

Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. NIV







There’s a warning against deceiving ourselves, imagining that we can sow one thing in life and reap something different, imagining that we can get away with things that God won’t see, that we won’t be caught up with the consequences of our actions. The Bible warns us this isn’t so. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

We know this is true in the natural realm. We… Continue

THE WAY BACK HOME

THE WAY BACK HOME



In Luke chapter fifteen we find a story that Jesus told that we call, “The Prodigal Son.” The story is a very moving story about a wayward son and how he came to his senses and returned home to his father.



I want to discuss the process of him returning to his father.



In verse eleven Jesus said, "A man had two sons.” he went on to say that the younger of the two sons wanted his share of the… Continue

WHILE I AM WAITING



WHILE I AM WAITING



Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:

wait, I say, on the LORD.”
(PSALM 27:14 KJV)



You might be very surprised to know that the word, wait in the above verse means something very different from our English word , wait.



When we think of waiting, we think of some one waiting for a bus, or waiting for to be seated… Continue
