  • God is great, Satan is a liar

     

    As the enemy of our soul’s reaks havoc on people lives, as often as he can, it makes me want to write about the hope we have. You see, Satan, the Devil, Lucifer, is the chief opponent of God. He is a liar and deceiver.

    The Blessedness of the First Resurrection

     

    “Blessed  and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection…” (See Revelation 20:6).

  • Swallowing pride removes barriers to good things

     

    “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5).

  • Missing or seizing God-given opportunities

     

    In many ways our lives are defined by opportunities missed and opportunities seized. According to the Bible, we are to take advantage of opportunities by responding with bold action when we recognize them as God-given chance to participate in his purpose.

  • God, our refuge and strength

     

    Here on this Earth if you are alive and breathing you will suffer afflictions.

    Things that can cause pain or distress, has no respect of persons. This comes to Christians and non-Christians. Personally I am so glad we don’t have to go through them alone.

    The outcome of our afflictions are so much better if we trust in God. Our prayers and the prayers of others on our behalf, can literally move mountains. I have seen many miracles in my lifetime for me, for my family, and many others.

     The Blessedness of the Lord’s Invitation

     

    “…Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb…” (See Revelation 19:9, RSV).

    To be invited means that we are remembered included, chosen, and desired. That, in itself, is a blessing. None of us wants to be left out. In Revelation we are offered the blessing of being invited to “the marriage supper of the Lamb” – the great heavenly banquet for Christ and his bride, the church.

  • Most of us have grown up (to some degree) since high school

     

     “I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one. As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world” (John 17:15,18).

    I was a little wary at first. Old prejudices began to surface. Did I really want to reconnect with some of these high school classmates?  I remember what they were like back then.

  • Things change God does not

     

    My article is different today it is about many things. What a crazy world we live in!

    The one thing that disturbs me more than anything is how many stories we read about people being killed, hurt or abused and the victim has less rights than the one who did them harm. Seems we are more and more getting lost in the “gray area”, no black or white anymore, or, should I say, no right or wrong.
