How Humbling

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!

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

Fear No Evil

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.

What Things?

After Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, he appeared to two puzzled disciples who were walking toward Emmaus.  The Apostle Luke describes the encounter (notice the verses that I bold):   LUKE 24:14-20 14 They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. 15 As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; 16 but they were kept from recognizing him. 17 He asked them,

A Mercy Balm

Lord, You are greater than our conscience. You have gifted us Messiah’s mind. The summing of our fears, guilt, and chanced ifs are by the Spirit nullified.   Firstly, your forgiveness fashions ‘round our hearts a mercy balm. Lastly, we cannot merit the ransom You paid by heart, foot, brow and palm. When the mangling of accusation seeks to steal hope of New Life, we remember that Resurrection and Ascension give us rights.

The Fulness of Love

(The poem below, after reading 1 John 4:10-21 and 1 John 5:14-16, with particular focus on the bolded in 1 John 4:17 (KJV) ~ Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world)   Are we as God is? In this world, do we frame Him so that all men see?   This is revival, seen, pure: the Sin-bearer's love, the perfection of love.   Fearless before God, for He

Preaching Precedes the End Times

Is there a difference between TEACHING and PREACHING?  Over the years, there has been a fusing of different presentations.  Preaching, which was once the spear point of truth, has been replaced by the Teaching ministry.  Years ago, people filled the church with anticipation that God was going to speak.  When God manifested His Word through His anointed servant, people knew they were experiencing a very special moment.  Preaching is “heralding divine truth” under the anointing.  People were affec

Words of Splendor

Yesterday, as I was digesting the disquieting news of our world, a light shone on my purpose in life. Reflecting upon my existence, I realized human relations were the thing that made my life valuable and complete. Without interactions, experiencing life was just two- dimensional—me and things. But, with the presence of others, life becomes much richer and meaningful. Each day brings us opportunities to partake in meaningful exchanges. We can be a blessing to someone else, we can be blessed

Keep My Commandments To Be Blessed Proverbs 3:1-13 KJV

1...My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments; 2...For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 4...Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 5...trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not to thine own understanding. 6...In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. 7...Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. 8...It shall be he
