Though the fig tree may not blossom, nor fruit be on the vines... yet will I rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength...
Habakkuk 3:17-19, NKJV
At sometime or other we all have what can only be described as one of those days! You know - the sort of day that starts when you wake up and realise that the alarm clock hasn't gone off and you're late! In your panic you fall out of bed, trip over the slippers left at the… Continue

Whole House Saved
Paul and Silas told the jailer. Just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. No other work was necessary. The jailer and his family placed their trust in God and immediately expressed that faith by being Baptized(outward profession of faith).truth or fiction?
The whole house must believe and meet the same terms for all of it to be saved(Mt.18:3 Jn.3:3,5).
Mt.18:3 And said verily, I say unto… Continue

When i was driven to my knees by alcohol, i was made ready to ask for the gift of faith. And all was changed. Never again, my pains and problems not with-standing, would i experience my former desolation. I saw the universe to be lighted by God's love; I was alone no more.

I am absolutely blown away by the fact that I am living in these days. I have watched prophecy fulfill for years, but now--as the Lord Jesus said it would--things are quickly coming to a climax. The "birth pangs" are coming faster and harder every day. If only unbelievers would pick up their Bibles and read it as they read their daily newspaper or watch the news on television! Wars, rumors of wars, economic crises, catastrophic weather, ethnic unrest and nation against nation. And in the… Continue

Howie Mandel has taken a “no-brainer” concept for a Game Show and popularized it to a leading prime-time program. There is currently a daily format as well. The simple idea is to guess which case out of 26 contains one million dollars. The concept is not dissimilar to an earlier program with Monty Hall called Lets Make A Deal. Both programs are based on the gambling instincts of people and/or the greed principle. With one program, guess the case with the… Continue

Does any one ever feel that they just cant get close enough to Jesus and our God? I suppose this is why I am on this website right now because although I feel close to God and Jesus I feel I want to be even more closer and just cant get enough of that great warming feeling of knowing that God loves me. I just cant seem to stop. Tonight I am planning to watch 'Passion of the Christ' with my best friend and then Sunday I am going to church as usual. Well anyway, I just felt like doing a blog so… Continue

Original Creation of God Gen.1:1
The original creations of God include the heavens and the earth and all things therein as first brought into being.
They were made Perfect The First Time. Gen.1:1 refers to the Dateless past, or the beginning of the creative ages(Job 38 Ps.8:3-8 19:1-6 Pr.8:22-31 1Jn.1:3;10 Acts.17:24-26 Col.1:15-18 Heb.1:1-12,11:3 Rev.4:11).

The Creative Ages
Original creation made perfect and inhabited(Isa.45:18)
The world that then was(2Pet.3:5-8).
Dateless Past(Pr.8:22-23 Jn.1:1 Acts.15:18 Eph.3:9 Col.1:18 Heb.1:10;11:3 1Jn.1:1 Rev.1:6 3:14).

There are many contributing factors when it comes to one being lethargic. The word by definition means: “the quality or state of being drowsy and dull, listless and unenergetic, or indifferent and lazy; apathetic or sluggish inactivity.” It can also include preoccupation with other and lesser things. One’s priorities have become skewed towards the mediocre or unimportant.
The United States has become inundated with Presidential politics to the… Continue

"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end."
God hears your prayers and guides you - even in the worst possible circumstances. Oh, He’s so good! All I want to do is shout! Why? Because He surely is “the Lord that healeth thee.” (Ex. 15:26) and a “rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” (Heb. 11:6)
I must give God the glory for all the wonderful things He has done! For years I had… Continue

Yesterday my Minister spoke to me about the sermon I missed in Church. I was so intrigued about what she was saying, she was kind enough to share her words with me via e-mail. As I read what she had written a message about Jesus' character was shining through. Jesus was truly representing the character of God and we should be truly representing the character of Jesus, but do we. Do we really take our commitment as Christians as serious as we think. My minister finished her sermon with the poem… Continue

There is a wide range of potential and possibility in terms of human behavior. In practical understanding, we have all experienced events that have made us very happy as well as those that have brought great sadness. For instance, Marriage is usually a time of great joy and happiness whereas Divorce is a time of considerable sadness, hurt and bitter exchanges. Max Lucado writes in
his book – The Applause of Heaven, “…Unfaithfulness is wrong. Revenge… Continue

The financial news of the past few days has not been positive for many. Large Companies being absorbed by others; Brokerage houses Bankrupt; Insurance Company receiving an 85 Billion Dollar Government infusion of cash; Housing Markets in disarray and being essentially taken over by the Government; etc. Someone either wisely or caustically asked: Who’s Going To Bail Out The Government?
There is also a crisis in our Government. Polls indicate… Continue

In every teardrop, God's rainbow of promise shines through.
He holds our tears in a bottle,
and our tears will reap joy;
For all God's promises have His ' yea' and ' amen' in them;
He has given us His Spirit as a guarantee.
In God's right hand; He lovingly holds us.
In His left hand; the bottle of tears is held.
The Lord will never leave us nor forsake us.
He has not forgotten, ~ ONE ~ promise!

In the ebb and flow of life, interruptions are a reality we all experience. No one is ever adequately prepared for the interruptions – they just occur. We might call these the unplanned encounters in life. In our lifetime, many of us can remember some of the major interruptions (and unplanned encounters) that have occurred – Pearl Harbor in 1941; World Trade Center in 2001; Assassinations – John F. Kennedy in 1963; Martin Luther King in 1968; Robert F.… Continue
