A Critical Time for Getting Direction from God

If God is really your friend, then you want to listen to Him. We need to hear what God really says, and not what we think He says. I can’t overemphasize how important it is to speak with one unified voice from God, who is One. This is a very critical time, not only for our country but for the entire world that needs explicit direction from God. If you tell me that you have a lot of friends on this earth, then I will ask you, “Do you enjoy listening to your friends?” Do you really want to hear what they say, or are you more interested in just hearing your own voice? True friends listen to one another. My heart aches to hear the voice of my wife, who can no longer speak because she has advanced Alzheimer’s. My ears also ache to hear the still small voice of God. I have learned a lot about listening over the years and even taught classes on how to listen in the business world and also as a Christian counselor. The first thing I noticed about most people, is that they don’t want to listen unless it’s listening to themselves. They love to hear the sound of their own voice or even the sound of their thoughts. I would say that people like this don’t have very many true friends; most of their friends are in name only. Unfortunately, this also applies to calling God your friend, when you don’t take time to listen. Continue reading A Critical Time for Getting Direction from God

To the Christians Living in America

Thus, saith the Lord. You are seeing through a glass darkly; things are not what they appear. There are only two kinds of people in the world, those who have the light and those who are filled with darkness. Darkness has invaded your world and has filled people of every race, color, and creed. It has filled both the religious and the non-religious. It has even filled most of your political leaders, even those who claim to know me. Things are not what they appear. You have witnessed how the whole world has grown more dark giving heed to their many immoral thoughts leading them into every manner of wickedness. What many do, who claim to be righteous, they do behind closed doors or under the cover of night. Things are not what they appear. You, oh son, have witnessed the increase in lawlessness that is covering your land and consuming everything in its path. I call upon you to be a witness to those who claim to be righteous but are filled with darkness allowing their thoughts to control their unholy actions.

Daniels Blog – Celebrating 22 Years of Online Ministry

After many years in the pastoral ministry that required personal one on one discipleship, door to door evangelism, preaching, teaching, and counseling, it was a tremendous change to minister to a faceless audience in an online ministry, which took time to develop long-distance relationships. Back in 1998, the worldwide web was still in its infancy, and building a website was not the easiest task. I still have fond memories of my wife and I visiting an internet provider owned and operated by my oldest son, Jonathan. He had his full-time programmer1998 Website help me build my first website from scratch with no pre-made templates or WordPress. But how does one have a presence on the worldwide web? Google was a big help in those early days when they were still relatively new. We grew together on how to make one’s website easily searchable for as many people as possible, trying one promotional idea after another. In the beginning, our online ministry mainly consisted of writing blog articles, which was an easy task for I had spent many years writing out all of my weekly sermons as a fulltime pastor. Many of these old sermons found their way into my new website with an eagerness to reach the world for Christ. Continue reading Daniels Blog – Celebrating 22 Years of Online Ministry

The World’s Being Prepared for a Savior

Most people in the world today feel lost, which can cause them great fear. This awful feeling of fear can be compared to the unrelenting dreams, that many have experienced, where the scenery and strangers keep changing as one struggles to find their way or make sense of what’s happening.

Blissful Living in a Dark World

Many Christians desire a blissful life, while the powers of darkness close in from every side. Many of them long for peace of times past, while dissension and hatred rule the day. Many long for joy, where now it’s just a fleeting memory from days gone by. Most have longed for a blissful life in a dark world. As children of light in a dark world, most have longed for the fruit of that light that would carry them beyond the memories of joy and peace to the blissful life of living in His presence. Most have longed for that life where time is no more and where we are set free from its aging process to a life of being forever young; to be set free from the confines and restrictions of time itself. That’s blissful living in eternity. As God’s beloved children we can have a foretaste of that now in this life encapsulated in the rigors of time, death, and dying. We as God’s beloved children can become transformed in Christ to experience this blissful life that’s well beyond most people’s imagination, that ventures to the mountain top of love and tranquility. If you’re interested in making this a reality in your life, keep reading. Continue reading Blissful Living in a Dark World
