During this last week, I have found myself doing a lot of thinking about the chaotic situation in our world today. Part of the world is in the throes of great evil with unspeakable atrocities being committed against the human race–things that are so horrific it is difficult to accept the fact that human beings could stoop so low as […]
As mentioned in previous postings, The “Church” was meant and designed to be a glorious entity that would fulfill God’s plan in this world, but yet not be of the world. In the first part of this series I made a comment that the Church today is in trouble. That may not sit well with everyone, and I want to […]
In going deeper in the study of walking in intimacy with God, I would like to spend a little time looking into the need for “meditation.” I am not referring to an eastern version of mysticism, nor “transcendental meditation” that became quite popular in the west starting in the 1960’s. For those that are living the life of a Christ-follower, […]
The parable of the ten talents found in Matthew’s Gospel has had controversy over what was said to the third servant. When he was rebuked and tossed out into “outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth”, was that hell? Was it the lake of fire? Some might find it controversial, but could there be a third possibility not often thought of due to traditional teachings? It’s worth looking into??
There are many missionary organizations around the world, most of them however being “nameless”, due to having to work underground. House Of Blessing, City Of Jesus Ministry, is one of these “nameless” ones. Access to financial help, and prayer from those around the world is dependent upon outsiders who are acquainted with the work being done. This is the case with these “Jerusalem Updates” which have been uploaded for the last 17 months after a personal trip to Jerusalem in March of 2012. This is a ministry that is legitimate, and very, very effective. Tens of thousands have found Jesus Christ the Messiah in the midst of desperate times. God has met them and loved them into His family. Please make yourselves available to this continuing amazing, miraculous story. It is still being written…
This post points out that much of the professing Church is soft, out of touch with Christ’s reality, and has gods of materialism, sports, and a feel-good Christianity. God does not accept it as He requires us to have a genuine relationship with Him that is based on His truth, holiness as He sees it, and a life lived that touches the world with His love. We, for the most part, have forgotten what the fear of God is all about–and until we find it again, are going to fail in fulfilling His commission He gave us. Time has run out and we’d better get with His program–not ours. His definition of “success” is not the one we use. We must see the difference.
