Why is there such a preoccupation with the Lord’s return? People are looking for Biblical signs that point to His second coming. It seems we are more concerned with the “lift-off” than the lifting-up of our Faith during these difficult times. Many of the Biblical signs of the Last Days have continued to be promoted over the years by concerned Christians. Generation after generation has sought a response to the continuing physical and spiritual attack against their country. What seems to be
(after reading Hebrews 7:26-27)
Jesus, set apart from sinners,
by the love with which He touched us first, has now ascended as High Priest, although thoroughly acquainted with our fallenness, to be presented before Abba.
He who knew no sin knew us well,
so much so that we jostled Him
with questions the apostles lacked.
As with Zacchaeus, He took us home
and openly befriended.
The Master said the news of Him
would go far, unto all
What can you depend upon as you begin your day? Family? Friends? Job? Or, must you start your day lonely, with no human support facing your trials on your own?
“Pardon for sin and a peace that endures, thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide; Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow, blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.”
Have these words from Thomas Chisholm ever echoed through your mind when things were going great? How about when things are bad?
(after reading Psalm 20)
We will arise and stand up straight,*
fly our flags of victory—shout the Name!
Adonai has answered through Yeshua HaMashiach:
on the third day, Glory; we follow by His right hand.**
Some trust in chariots, some in the power that pulls.
We trust in the Blood that washes white as wool.^
Help beyond the mountains^^ comes from the sanctuary
of the God of Jacob, His Spirit for the weary.+
* Psalm 20:8
One of the biggest cover-ups of the Christian Faith is the role repentance plays in the salvation experience. Many churches “leapfrog” repentance and promote salvation by Faith. They believe all one has to do is accept the finished work of Jesus (cross) and believe He rose from the dead (empty tomb) and they will be saved. For years I have tried to understand why many confessed Christians are inconsistent in their walk of Faith. How can they one day praise God and the next moment graze in th
When Jesus came into the world,
the Spirit still abode
within the Virgin to be lamp
and light for ten new toes.
What traits could Mary claim to have
helped form the One who wrought
with His own hands the universe?
Without word, submission.
How humbling, then, that hearers
and doers of the word
are deemed greater for their affection
for the Living Lord.*
* Luke 11:27-28
We’ve Been Given It All!
Ever have that acquaintance or relative that rubs you the wrong way? The one you cannot be all that nice to because, let’s face it, they don’t treat you the way you think you should be treated.
Yeah, me too.
I have invested years in a relationship, out of necessity, with a person whose face would show up in Webster's Dictionary for the definition of “pompous.” No matter what I might do or say it was never accurate enough, nor elegant e
1...The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. 2...He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me besides the still waters. 3...He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4...Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5...Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6.
