Stop looking at the signs and start looking at your walk. So many in today’s world are obsessed at looking at the signs. From viewing one YouTube video after another to listening to every new false prophet that comes along, the Christian community is being forced further into captivity by the prince of darkness. Signs are important otherwise Christ would not have given them. Signs are like signpost that give directions and alerts us when we are close to our destination. To concentrate only on the signs and not the many other things necessary to be a good and safe driver would not only be foolish, but could end in tragedy. Well, it’s the same way when it comes to concentrating on the signs of Christ’s Second Coming and not on the many things it takes to be faithful followers of Christ. Yes, many things. So many things that Jesus Christ gave us the indwelling Spirit to remind us of everything He said and taught. The Bible says, “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit, when he the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth…” (John 16:12-13a). So, stop looking constantly at the signs and pay attention to your driving. Stop obsessing on the signs of Christ’s return in Glory and let’s agree to spend more time in preparation for His arrival by listening to God through the Spirit. Without the Spirit, the Bible would not be discernible. It would be a nice history book and wise teachings from an ancient Teacher, but remiss of Spiritual power. The power necessary for spiritual growth and faithfulness to God. Continue reading Looking at the Signs or at Your Walk?
Deep Perversions are Grieving the Spirit of God. What Might We Expect Next? This generation and specifically this nation has enjoyed God’s patience for the last forty or so years. No one with any knowledge of the scriptures and a personal faith in the Living God would dare to say that God is not grieved, or that He is not about to act. The very first warning of the only unforgivable sin ever recorded in the Bible was preceded by the pronouncement of one of the worst perversions to emanate from the mind of man. Continue reading Perversions are Grieving the Spirit of God
To see the political divide in this country largely perpetrated by the media is nauseating. Even the most righteous believers in Christ are indignant toward the negative, opinionated, and hateful rhetoric thrown at the President of the United States of America. Every word and action is over analyzed and fraught with contempt by the liberal media. As the divide widens and whole segments of the population are ripped apart and pitted one against another, the true believers in Christ must not be carried away by their lies and deception. We must remain aloof, but at the same time interject God’s truth into the matrix of society. What is truth? A question that has echoed down the annals of History. A truth that every believer must possess. Continue reading Staying Untainted from the Political Divide
With all the evil things in the world today, we hear a lot about “shelter in place.” Every time there’s a mass shooting or a disaster we usually hear this refrain and we all know what to do. Don’t move from the area, take cover, and remain silent. We are not meant to fight back, but hide. For many, if not most, it’s the loneliest time in their life. You are left completely alone with your fears, your anxiety and the unknown. The dark daunting unknown. Almost anything these days could cause us to shelter in place, from mass shootings to natural disasters; and, from martial law to a nuclear attack as we hear it over the loud speakers or on emergency radios. Yet, this is an enigma in disguise, because where is the real shelter? You are hiding, hunkered down, behind an unlocked door or in your home, but where is the real shelter? Where is the solace, or the comfort that everything is ok? For those in the world there is no real shelter. Shelter in place is an enigma, but for the believers it should be different. Let me show you how. Continue reading Shelter in Place an Enigma in Disguise
