praise report

Early this week a friend that I used to work with called me, and before the conversation ended my friend made a statement. Well I was pleased to hear what he had to say because it was nice words about Bro.Donald. Apparently Bro.Donald made a good impression on my friend some time ago. Bro.Donald, I will tell you face to face the next time I see you, but for an public announcement I just want to say that Bro.Joe is very proud of you, just keep on keeping on.

heart stuff

Their are no willows with harps in them here But "Oh that my head were waters, and mine eyes a fountain of tears, that I might weep day and night for the slain of the daughter of thy people" ( read Jer 9:1- )Jeremiah knew that things have just gone to far, now GOD was pouring out his wrath and all man could do was weep! Not everything can be fixed.

"Well son their was a time when the Lord GOD parted the waters of Jordan, so that his people could cross over into the promise land." "Yes father I have heard this story all my life, but the reason I don't believe it is because they were suppose to be a landmark of stones, so that my generation would be reminded of the greatness of the LORD. So father, what happen to the old landmark?" "Well son their were some that rethought the directions of the Lord and considered those stones irrelevant and moved them to another place where they would not get in the way."

"Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first works or else"

Tuesday, October 14, 2008


Take me back, take me back dear Lord to where I first met with you!! The old paths, These stones set up after the crossing, how dare we think that God has ever changed, when his word says that he changes NOT!!! The changing of times and culture does not equate in Man trying to change GODS ways , his ways stay the same.

Courage, bravery, and fearlessness are needed especially when in battle. These are the qualities of the one that the label of "valor" has been bestowed upon. Such courage is not reckless foolishness, but the resolve not to be intimidated "not given thought to the opinion of man, but only to how God views me". It is the courage inspired by faithfulness to a greater concern than the opposing forces. Not giving one's self over to a compromising world view, and trying by slick and crafty techniques to REMOVE the old landmarks handed down by our forefathers. To do nothing else, but to bring about the twisted, distorted views of MAN, trying to put that in the place of the power of GOD.

How many messes could be avoided, if we just got all the facts before we made decisions!

Saturday, September 27, 2008


I feel good in the Lord today! their is no wondering in my soul of what GOD is going to do. All I know is that whoever does whatever this one thing remains the same, the LORD is in control of it all!! and he will have his will be done. Remember, just because judgement has not fell yet doesn't mean it's not on it's way, he is mercifully. I feel good because even though the adversary tries to bring us down "I still remain".

think on these things

Today I've been prompted to consider how good GOD has been to me. In living this life i cant say that i have been in the right way to meet the LORD at all times. Now I understand we all fall short, and it is necessary to commune with the LORD daily. The reason that this thought is upon me is not about the times that I've failed him.It's that I started thinking about those who have left his presence and backslide, never to meet the LORD in mercy again! I know way to many that walked away the way I did that have not returned, in the truth. For the very reason that I'm writing this, which was born out of prayer is a testimony unto itself. This one impression was left on me this afternoon that because of mercy "I yet remain" though many that I've started out with have perished "PRAISE HIS NAME"!!!!! Y.F.T

been thinking!!!!!

Confidence. Now that's a weighty word for the fact that it is so very important. For someone to hear that they have lost confidence in another is a terrible thing. You see because, no matter how you try to make things out to be, or how you try to spin things the truth will remain "trust is lost". The problem of losing others trust is that after the moment the verdict is finally for them, nothing is ever the same. THEY JUST DON'T BELIEVE YOU ANYMORE.

a thought

It's purely ridiculous, but their are a whole lot of people that desperately desire a certain thing in their life. Now desiring something of good in someones life is not whats absurd. The madness is that their doing everything to oppose their own blessing. Now if this was being done out of ignorance that would be one thing, but it's a willfully act on their part. Sometimes we as people can be our worst enemy, just because we think were so smart, I'm convinced that sometimes were just educated fools! ( sorry for the bluntness, but I've got to write it the way i feel it)

keep it real

O'how we want GOD to forgive us of our sin's, and GOD please overlook these shortcoming's of mine. Remember Lord, that I'm just dust O'GOD. BUT does it ever cross your mind O'wicked servant to forgive those that trespass against YOU!! We have got to understand that my Brother,Sister was fearfully and wonderfully made also. Verbal Bean made a statement once (God don't care until you care)I agree with the old prophet. You cant even come and bring your gift to the alter until you MAKE IT RIGHT!!! with your brother. Your sad feelings about the way things are, is not enough you MUST reconcile with them or your lost.If GOD want accept you sacrifice (worship, offerings)until you have made it right, then tell me HOW will you be saved! Go make peace with one another, if for no other reason than,I MUST BE SAVED. Y.F.T

ASAPH ( as soon as possible, hurry)

Asaph had a problem,for 16 verses in (psa 73 1-16) he's writing about the wicked he saw, the ones that didn't even acknowledge God were being blessed. All asaph could see was that all his righteous living was done in vain, well just take a good look and see their prosperity, compared to my meager means. Now we can't be to hard on asaph, because his reaction is not that different than a lot of us today (if were honest). But in verse 17, after getting into the presence of the LORD when he went to the sanctuary,then he Understood their end. We don't have to be in obscure poverty to be Godly, nor do I believe that God in his righteous judgements can't bless us with great wealth and possessions, but he knows what we need to be saved. Wither we have much or little just remember this one thing, the abundance or lack of stuff matters little, what matter's is the END!!! Y.F.T

watch out

REFRAIN from these men,(leave them alone). This was the statement from wise counsel, concerning the treatment of men of GOD! For if this council or this work be of men, it will fail: but if be of GOD, boy's watch out because you wont be able to stop it!!! (read acts 5:38-39)First of all, we got to understand that God's in control of this thing and no man will be able to glory in his own works forever. Be watchful of the way you conduct yourself with another saint, but their are certain men that you are to be exceedingly careful of how you treat. Men of GOD, the one's that have really been called of him are to be left alone! That means your criticism and labeling are out of ORDER, you might find yourself fighting against GOD!!!

love one another

We live this life to please the Lord and prepare for heaven, that should be our goal!! But while we are on this journey called life,if we are successful at it, were able to obtain relationships. Now I used the word successful, and I use that word with full intention, because if we go through this life and never create lasting relationships WE HAVE FAILED. JESUS wants to have a relationship with us, and he wants us to have one with others. If you never try to cultivate friendships,then at the end of the day when its all said and done and you start to look around and see no one their, don't look surprised,your true love is still close YOURSELF.

Lineage in Christ

Lineage, their are those that try to lean on the arm of what others have done. Their are those that try to rely on their parents standing with GOD, but they themselves have no real depth in HIM. Even though we learn much from the victories of those that have preceded us and get direction, we HAVE to get this for ourselves. What dear old dad did does not automatically qualify you at all. But if you are of the lineage of CHRIST, if you have been buried with him in baptism then in life you will rise. We desperately need direction from the elders, BUT what are you doing to make sure your heritage is true, because in turn your heritage dictates your future in him.

look up

Is their any among you sick? Is their any that hunger and thirst after righteousness. Well I say unto you COME, you don't have to feel that life has passed you by! Their is no use for that cloud to hang around any longer. Two thousand years ago Jesus hung on a cross to clear the air of all the clouds of doubt,hurt,fear and any thing else that the enemy would try to throw our way. Without a doubt this IS going to be your best moment yet!!!! You can't lose, God's on your side!! the gates of hell will not prevail against the church, make sure your in the bride, not just a building and I'll rejoice with you over yonder. Y.F.T

times up

This morning I woke up with a definite word. YOUR about to be forced by GOD to show your hand, God's about to call your bluff!!! I never played cards, mainly because those type of games just never interested me. But as I woke this morning a scene was unfolded before me,and that was of a poker game. Now I was not always in church, I've been around card games before, it's all about holding the upper hand and winning the purse. But in a game of Chance you might be holding some cards, but only the one with all the goods will win. Don't know who this is for, but recheck your hand because TIMES UP!!! Y.F.T

Dagon worship, selfwilled worship

An head,torso and hands of a man,but a body of a fish. This was the description of DAGON,idol of the philistines,head represents human reasoning,hands represents human ingenuity sitting on the body which represented their prosperity.And so the worship went on at the temple of dagon,from the head down, worship of the way they could figure it out, worship of their craftiness in which brought about their substance.But one day someone thought it would be a good idea to set the ark of JEHOVAH GOD before dagon or you could say before self worship.After the first day dagon had to bow,the second day all of his reasoning and craftiness was rolling around on the floor. IF you have self worship in you, take notes from dagon you will either bow or break.Y.F.T

sail on

Thank GOD for defined boundaries, Bro Mullen's preached on a river, when within its banks, its a powerful moving force. You can sail on a river, a river is moving, its alive with current. BUT if the boundaries are breached, it becomes nothing but a marsh; something just to get stuck in. Its a swamp, breeding nothing but blood sucking, life destroying mosquitoes and a host of other vile creatures. I could go on and on relating this to the spiritual, but I believe you get the idea.

defining times 2

When the runner is assigned his lane by the official,the goal is the only thing that runner is consumed with. And while their is a line on his left and right, his only concern is to stay in the boundaries of his lane that the official deemed to be his.Never does he try to run close to the line,in fact the runner is safer, when he stays well within the boundaries of what is set before him.The runner knows that being careless,could cost him everything all of the sacrifice,all of the suffering in training WILL be of naught if while in the heat of the race,he crosses that line.Run for the prize, looking at the finish line that lays ahead, but always remember don't step over the disqualifying line.

defining times

MADNESS-sanity, FANTASY-reality, LIE-truth; now, why did these selected words have this particular arrangement and capitalization, that will come later. Their is such a fine line between a life being lived in reality and fantasy. Now to the one living either or,to them it is the right way to go about it. That is why we are not to "lean unto our own understanding" but at least, even though the line be thin and fine its their!! In this life which "is here today and gone tomorrow" and after tomorrow the judgement, their has to be the line that separate truth from the lie. If the water be murky, how will the swimmer swim? If the lines be dusted away until their is no definement to them, how will the runner run? In the Olympics, a runner is disqualified if he or she steps out of their lane and their foot crosses that line. more later... Y.F.T

just tired of it

Politeness,n. The most acceptable hypocrisy. Ambrose Bierce- The false assumption of an appearance of virtue or religion. You might fool some people, some of the time; but you won't fool all of the people all of the time. To all of the fakers that would masquerade to be something when your just dust the same as me, but you love to talk behind backs. I guess it makes you feel better about yourself, so by all means keep doing what your doing. Just remember this one thing "every idle word will come into judgement. Just suppose someone actually started to become the very thing you falsely accuse them of being...

held together

Let me ask you something! what is the glue that holds you and your relationships with others together? Now after giving this some thought, let me ask you this! how HOT!! can it get in your relationship with others until that glue no longer holds! Only you can answer this.


Mat 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Now that's a big haul, but believe it or not, I really don't think we have a problem believing GOD can do these things through us. We know that within ourselves we can do none of these things, now I understand that there are those that believe they can, but I'm not talking about weirdos. While sitting outside, the thought starting taking hold of me, I have received such great and mighty things from the LORD; I am a debtor!!!!! unto all mankind. I have received from him, now it's my turn to give. We are held by the obligation of love to reach out to the hurting. I've seen plenty of hurting people (some in the church,in my home)if no compassion is given, none will be RECEIVED. Y.F.T

You can live without bread! now, not for long! without bread you MAY be able to live weeks even months. But even one day without water and the one trying to survive will be in desperate straits. Water is the most important nutrient for the body (besides oxygen)so it goes without saying that water is VITAL! for life to continue. One day you might find yourself without a church, perhaps because of a disaster without a preacher of the word of GOD. But whatever you do, or whatever may happen to you, don't ever lose the ability or knowledge of how to get a hold of water. Prayer, will get you in touch with this living water. We need the preached WORD of GOD, don't miss understand me at all! but without the spirit of prayer, that fills our souls with this badly needed element, YOU will die!!! Y.F.T

one day

One day a man made this statement "Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth". Even though Nathanael's statement was a popular belief, (even those that lived in that town leaned that way)Jesus knew how to handle the faith issue. The only reason Jesus could change the outlook of Nathanael in 4 verses was because of what statement Jesus made in John 1:47 "Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile". Friend, GOD can handle and help you with unbelief, and he can make the crooked things straight!! but his hands are tied, if you are a deceitfully cunning, double tonged individual. He can see what you are a mile away, even if you're under cover.

"Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward". The error of balaam was that he "TAUGHT balac to cast stumbling blocks before the children of Israel to eat things sacrificed unto idols and to commit fornication"( REV 2: 14). Balaam was a man that could hear a word from GOD with incredible speed! When the men came to seek him out for king balac, he told them, that GOD would speak to him that night! and it happen! But balaam was after REWARD! not after the things of GOD or out to help the people of GOD! A reward is different to different people! to some it may be money, to others prestige, and on and on. But what balaam did was teach Balac which his name means (a devastator or spoiler) balaam taught the king of moab how to defeat Israel, because nothing else would work. GOD would not curse his kids!!! but a deceiver found out a way to get JEHOVAH GOD to become so ANGRY, Because of idolatry and whoring themselves out to the world, GOD sent a plague among his disobedient people. Never once did balaam try to convience Isreal that there was more than one God, all he did was offer them a stumblingblock! Y.F.T

missing out

I understand you know, I'm aware that you said in service amen!!! to the preaching that GOD wants to bless you. It's apparent to me that you have been around this long enough that you really don't need anyone to open the bible and teach you anything "YOU FOOL". When you rely on your own understanding you are playing in the lap of folly so get over being called a fool,you did it yourself. There is a world of difference between mouthing a word of acknowledgement and being PERSUADED of GODS ability to help you in the time of need.Being PERSUADED of him and who HE is!!! will calm your fears and settle your nerves so instead of medicating yourself! Try praying, and see that he is good for yourself. Y.F.T

step up to the plate

In the void of any sound, in which complete silence is deafening,I stood before the Lord. In the moment of time it took, never was their such a feeling of peace and completeness. Out of the encounter I was told something so simple but very life changing ( GET READY TO MET ME FACE TO FACE). I will prepare for that meeting, I suggest you do the same. Y.F.T.

catch a clue

Some call it a habit, others just simply say it's just the way I am, still others will insist that its the way I see things. No matter which crutch you lean on, (if what ever it is) is a constant cause for you to repent over, then I say unto you, it's not that simple of a thing you might think it to be. Pet spirit's, are not uncommon among apostolic people! They are just better concealed. I've seen far to many one GOD people allowing spiritual strongholds of the devil. Year by year they become stronger and stronger. It's high time to be done with sin and GET your MIND on going to HEAVEN, instead of just enjoying this short lived aroma of wordily living.

Saturday, August 9, 2008

Since when did certain passages of scripture ever become negative? The very word of GOD, encased in leather for no other reason than so we could be saved has been tested by fire and has been proven true (Rom 3:4 "let GOD be true but every man a liar")

haughty not humble

I know you have seen them! hopefully you're not one of them. What I'm talking about are, the ever so wise, always has all the answers, type of people. They will let you know about all of the ins and outs of situations. There is no real humility in them, they are just noise makers and trouble makers (Rom 12:3)and it tells us not to think more highly of ourselves than we ought. Folks that are of this way rarely see it in themselves, that's why they will split hell wide open, because if they see it not, it will be the sin of self that takes them to hell. Oh that prayer will be made to deliver us from self.....y.f.t

JUST think

Just like anything else this starts out slow and inconspicuous but it does not stay that way, EVER! What you feed, will grow! What I'm talking about is the formation of strongholds in the life of people and eventually in their HOME. (Mark 3:27) No man can enter into a strongman's house,and spoil his goods,except that he will first bind the strongman. I'm not even going to try to make a list of everything that will BIND the strongman, or just say the LEADER of the house. Though prayer and seeking the lord FOR HIS WILL TO BE DONE, not ours, we wont need a list made for us to follow a check off so we feel OK about things "much more to say, but not now".....y.f.t we must read our bible, go hear the word of GOD and live by faith these things will help us live overcoming lives.

The cry of our world is "encourage" me to feel good while in my sin!. But our hope is in the LORD and eternity with him to come. Never wonder why preachers minster so hard at times ( and yes their is seasons of rejoicing to)the word is like unto a two edged sword said JESUS. So I exhort you not to wish for a self help, A.A approch to salvation but rather "what must I do to be saved".... Y.F.T

Here you are

"It shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the day of judgement, than for you". And why is that? because of the mighty works done among us, if they were just done among them city's they would have repented LONG AGO.( read Mat 11:21-22 )I just wonder why some people just never seem to really repent! because true repentance comes from "Godly sorrow" which works unto salvation, but worldly sorrow worketh death (read 2Cor 7:10). Sorrow, pain, grief, ANNOYANCE,affliction (all types of sorrow in Strong's). I sure would not want my sorrow of repentance to be of the worldly sort, that wont do me much good at all! in fact it will do NO good. "O" GOD let our repentance be of the sort that brings a turning around of the ways that is not pleasing to you..... just a thought

Past voices

YEA! I killed him, so what of it? Everyone thinks they got it all figured out! But let me tell you a thing or two, you try to keep your calm after a hard hot day of tilling the ground which just to survive I must do day after day through toil and hardship and much labour, MY lot in life is to work this cursed land while he just lays around watching sheep "WHAT A LITTLE WIMP". He doesn't have to labor like I do and life seems to just come so easy for him. WHAT am I suppose to do, give homage to Abel just because he brought the "acceptable" sacrifice. All he has to do is place a rope around the neck of his sacrifice and saunter it over to the alter. I'M so mad I wish I could kill him again. GOD cursed the land, not me! So I gave him back the fruits of the lot in life he gave me!!! WHAT are you looking at, you think your better than me? God hears all of your belly-aching about your believed lot also, and just think of the brothers and sisters you've slaughtered with slander yourself...... Cain

cry, cry

I have a interesting job, I get to hear a lot of stories from people of all backgrounds. One thing I've learned is about victims. Victims very often will tell of how they were mistreated or falsely accused. While in some cases this is very true, I have learned to listen to words people use because they will eventually tell the real reasons for a thing, instead of the twisted, watered down delusion you call truth. In a majority of cases I've seen either the victim feels victimized because something they wanted to happen didn't, or they were caught doing wrong but to them "In their eyes" it was okay. The result is always the same they are the victim, there is more to this but for now this is all.

get what you give

This will be the first of a few thoughts that I will attempt to speak on. The bible says "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". The boomerang is a tool used for a variety of purposes, but there is one unique characteristic about the boomerang. When its thrown it comes back to the one who threw it. Just lately I've been eye witnessing to a person that threw a lot of boomerangs of hate, jealously, selfishness and so on, so all I have to do is stand back and watch this person crumble under the weight of what they heaped on their self. Lets really take it to heart that if you throw anger, gossip and there is a host of other ungodly junk that people get all wrapped up in, sooner or later it will come back with force and meet you FACE to FACE.

Check up from the neck up

Create a clean heart,renew a right spirit. These are the word's of David in Psa 51:10, there is so much going though my mind right now, but for the sake of time I'll just say that this is my prayer today: that GOD will create in me a clean heart and also renew good, in me. I do not want to be deceived by myself, and act like all is well, when the inside man is really corrupted. Let's make our "election sure" and be very careful that we are operating in the right spirit, and really let GOD check our motives.

A few months ago I met a guy named William, he had 2 tours in Caltrans, almost back to back. The first and second tours both 30 days. He is a good guy, just young and did some wrong things. In the 60 days total I had him about 30 times on my van. On his last day I gave him my phone number and invited him to church. He got out of the program, and didn't hear from him for about a month. I met a lot of people and invite a lot of people to church, I asked him on his last day, "Have I ever invited you to church?" Even though he had 60 days, I never invited him personally.

When he called he said he said he wanted to come to church. That Sunday he said he couldn't make it and I didn't hear from him again for about a week. I got a phone call one day, while at work from El Paso, TX. It was William, telling me he was moving to Arkansas to live with family.

Another week passed and he called me again, from Arkansas, just to say HI, and to say he was doing well. (I only know him as someone who I made work on the side of the freeway) He told me he was staying in Mena County. After I got off the phone, I got on the computer to find him a UPC church in that county. I found the only UPC church in that area, and wrote the info down. Pastor Jack Smith is in Mena, and the only church in the area. With a sense of urgency, I called him right back after finding the info. His response to me after I gave the info was, That's cool! After being there for four days, he came across a man moving into an apartment and helped him move his furniture into that apartment. William received a church card from Pastor Jack Smith today after helping him move his stuff. This was hours before he called me and I confirmed that there was a church on the same highway he lives on. The church is not very far from where he lives. Please pray for William, the hand of GOD is so evident in this situation. As far as I understand, he had never heard of UPC church organization or Pentecost. God knows what we all need when we need it.

I have seen some cool things living for GOD but this maybe the coolest.

It hit me this morning, The people that will criticize and speak negatively against "A GOOD WORK " are the ones that are either UNWILLING or UNABLE to do any "good work" that's acceptable unto the Lord. Therefor if the case is an inability, since they don't have what it takes to accomplish the task unto the goal they decide to belittle those that are capable and willing. GOD help us!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I not saying that this is the right thing to do, in fact I am saying it is not. I am kind of embarrassed to even say that I do this. Since gas has gone up in price, it just about breaks my heart to fill up my truck. It almost brings tears to my eyes, when the pump closes in on $98.00. I have a tendency to only put $30-40 at any given time. It doesn't get you a lot of gas when you drive a gas guzzler like my truck. Today, I was on my way to the chiropractor. I realized I was low on fuel (in all honesty, the fuel light came on 2 days ago), since I have a habit of running low, I have learned how far I can push my truck, once the warning light goes on...about 42 miles, give or take a couple of tenths. Today even though I passed many stations, I never pulled over to fill up, just kept pushing on fumes. While I was in the chiropractors office in, neck traction, I started thinking and asked the Lord, do I ever run my life like I run this truck? He has given me all the opportunities to be topped off, I wounder if I ever run on fumes. Have I gotten used to being able to tell when I need just a little more of God, verses just running on vapors of the last experience. The thought hit me, that even though I know just how far I can push this truck, one day I am going to go a little to far and be stranded. Oh what a needless self inflicted pain that will be.

Today is such a beautiful day! I was walking to my truck earlier when I saw a animal control officer at the apartments across the street. Well something like this doesn't usually interest me but this time it did! So I went across the two-way street and saw an officer taking a look at a young hawk, it was just lying on a bush and would move every now and then. This majestic bird of prey was not noticeable injured but something was diffently wrong. This hawk should be flying high in the sky, should be (in it's apparent youth) soaring in the heaven's, but this was not the case. The animal control officer said it looked like perhaps, and the most likely scenario would be that this hawk ingested poison. I started thinking about how this young hawk was like to many people that I know, instead of soaring in life to new hight's, somewhere they get ahold of something that poison's them, and they find themself's hurting and no longer are they enjoying the liberty of the heaven's, and the freedom of flying above the trivial, thier stuck and helpless. O GOD help me not to get a poisoned system and spend my life hurt and sick, but instead O GOD that I may (mount up with wings as an eagle)

What good does it do to put away things and not change? How many people have I meet in life that that's exactly what they do. No, they don't drink anymore but will backbite someone all day. No longer does cigarettes pose a threat to their outward holiness, but inside there is bitterness, hatefulness and a sour competitive spirt. Now I'm not trying to be mean, but GOD is not looking on our outward appearnce solely, neither is GOD only looking to see if we are appealing in the eyes of man. GOD is looking for a "humble and contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise".

NOT THE SAME 2 conti...

"I know not the LORD, this was the responce of Pharaoh when confronted with the statement made by moses to "let my people go" (thus saith the LORD). After waking up this morning this thought would not leave me alone,"the charater of a Pharaoh". First thing he didn't reconize a mam of GOD, Exd 5:4 (get you unto your burdens)and because he didn't realize who he was speaking to, his immediate response was to blame it on the people and increase thier already heavy burden. Now we start to see what it takes to be "A Pharaoh" Exd 7:22 "And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments" as long as a person who is aspiring to be a Pharaoh see's that though enchantments they can get the same results as the true works of GOD, then they will never let go and let GOD do what he really desires to do. After the frog's we see that Pharaoh start's his famous "I will let you go"-(just kidding) skit and there is were we get WHAT I SAY IS REALLY NOT WHAT I MEAN.

Moses stood in the court of pharaoh and demanded him "by the word of the LORD" to let the people of GOD go." The LORD before hand in exd 7:9 told moses that pharaoh would ask for a "miracle" Now we can look into what pharaoh said and what pharaoh meant. The word "miracle" by one definition means: an extraordinary event manifesting divine intervention in human affairs. If it was under this context, which pharaoh made his request, then when Aaron threw the rod down, and it became a serpent. It would seem that it in itself would be enough. But this was not the case. The bible says that pharaoh called the wise men and the sorcerrs, and they in like manner with their enchaments did the same. Each man his rod turned into a snake :but Aaron's rod swallowed up their rods. This tell's me two things' when pharaoh asked for a miracle what he really ment was to see a sensation, a spectacular, or can we just say "SHOW" because if he really wanted to see a divine act of the GOD, that moses was speaking of, he wouldn't have called for his magicians to come in and copy what the man of GOD was doing. Just a thought but has any one of us ever prefered the magic of a show, over the magisty of a miracle, anyway the second thing I see here is that there is such a thing as coping anothers acts, but we see when the test came to what will stand, the magic could not stand up to the miracle.

"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fullness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." Psa 16:11

Last night at prayer "just telling the truth" it felt like no matter how I would pray, the roof seemed 2 feet high and my prayers would bounce back right at me. Now this is not unheard of, so after checking myself, I just continued to pray. That is when the Lord gave me this scripture and after praying this verse it was like night and day, the thought hit me:PRESENCE.

Presence-face,person,the neighborhood of one of superior especially royal rank(Webster's)

Now seeing these meanings behind "presence" though not in its completion, lets just say in his presence, you and I "behold" the very person yea the very face of superior royalty which is THE LORD JESUS CHRIST himself . Now if you are the superior rank in your life you will never be able to enter into his presence nor will you ever be able to know the savior as he is, therefore it goes without saying that you will never see him face to face(with a pleasant outcome). This is just an 8 minute thought there is so very much more to say about this prayer business.

Not the same 1

It is very tiring to hear about charismatic charlatans. For personal gain they deceive and just destroy truth, all because their agenda is themselves. They can't make truth obsolete. In the hearts and minds of people that are looking for help in a troubled and scary world, these wolves in sheep's clothing literally, with a smile on their face, consume the very hope, and trample the trust others put in them. This comes from being in prayer and having GOD whisper to me "the difference between SHOW and Demonstration". Benny Hinn is the perfect example of what I'm talking about, this fraud has been revealed openly and still he operates in the realm, in league, with the devil and still people flock to him. What we need so desperately in this hour, is to really realize that not only does the true church have to contend with this world but these that have "crept in unaware" Jud 1:4. O GOD we need the moving of your spirit, WE have to have the gifts of the spirit in full opperation ammong us.

B.T.W more will follow on this topic.

For 1000 year's Constantinople stood as the jewel of Christianity and also as the last stronghold that held Islam out of Europe. While many attempts were made to breach it's walls, the integrity of it's walls and the Spirit of residence to a foreign force was strong. Then there came a time of unrest amongst the orthodox and unionist of the Catholic church. The unionist had the power of Rome behind their undertaking or to say movement. Because the orthodox did not buy into the idea of the pope being GOD'S infallible mouth piece. This fighting inside the city caused a sultan named Mehmet to take notice and decide to attack Constantinople. History records that the siege of 1453 was the most notable, fierce assault ever recorded. Without reciting the entire story, Constantinople fell and history also tells us that even after two vicious attacks and over 42 days of siege, the over all integrity of the city held. Record keepers in the camp of Mehmet tell history that the sultan would only attempt 1 more time to sac the great city. There were two reasons that the prized "red apple" of the west, fell. First in a hurried rush one of the cities gates were left open, in which the enemy took full advantage of. Second the leader of the defenders was wounded and taken away from the front lines. Without leadership the soldiers started leaving the stand they took. This lead to the enemy being able to scale the walls unopposed and in moments took hold of the city.

figure it out

On 16 June 1858 Abraham Lincoln gave his immortal HOUSE DIVIDED speech, Which is derived from "Matt.12:25" which states "Ever kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself cannot stand". Of course we understand that this discourse is referring to slavery, But what does it say to you and I in 2008?

I won't be able to write everything that I would like to say because it would be just to long, but I would like to talk to the other's. (Heb.11:33-38)speaks of those who by faith subdued kingdoms, administered justice, obtained promised blessings, closed the mouths of lions, and many more feats just as awesome were preformed. The bible also talks about the other's that had to suffer trails of mocking, chains, imprisonment, stoned to death, sawn into, they went around dressed in skins of sheep, and goats the bible says UTTERLY destitute, oppressed, cruelly treated.

Now we got it pretty good in So.Cal ain't nobody that I know of been sawn into because of their faith lately, but I know all to well that the devil would have us believe that our lot in life is just so bad. Now even if you feel like one of the other's the bible says that they won divine approval, and goes on to say that the world was not worthy of them. So even if you might feel like one of the other's, HOLD ON, theirs a crown at the end of this road. Y.F.T

Great minds discuss ideas, Average minds discuss events, Small minds discuss people. ELEANOR ROOSEVELT


How you approach anything whether it be handling of bills, raising of children or whatever it may be it's imperative that we approach it the right way.(way of handling, method of attack, attitude, method, procedure, technique) these are but a few ways to explain what I mean when I write about approach "An unhealthy approach to the handling of a problem is trying to fix symptoms in hope that it will right whats wrong. A healthy approach is discerning what the problem is!!! Then FIXING the problem instead of aggravating ourselves because we spend all our time playing with symptoms in hopes that doing so will miraculously solve the problem. Y.F.T (your fellow traveler)

In the book of James, he makes a warning unto those that would fall into the trap of the devil when he talks about having partiality among people. If you have "respect of persons", you commit sin, and are convicted of the law as a transgressor. Now we all know that we no longer live under the legalistic Mosaic law so what is this law that we would be convicted as a transgressor? IT'S the law of love have we ever heard this? "Having ye love one for another". Friend it's just human nature to have more things in common with some, verses others, BUT fearing the word of GOD I never would want to walk around with a better than you, having a respect of person spirit on me that will send my soul to an eternal hell. The reason for this blog is simply to release a burden that the LORD put in my heart because there is a great evil in the land and it's having partiality among us. May the Lord of heaven bless you, your fellow traveler.

The reason

"It is good to have an end to journey towards, But it is the journey that matters in the end"-Ursula K. Leguin

Everyone of you, out there, are on a journey whether you realize it or not. The bible says that the days of man are few so it really matters how we travel this path. When I was in the service, a common phrase was used "expect the worst, hope for the best" As I get older looking on this phrase, I can agree with hoping for the best but I feel that we will do ourselves a grave injustice if we go through life just expecting "THE WORST" but I'm afraid that is exactly what a lot of people do. If you have the holy spirlt of the almighty GOD inside you there is no reason to expect the worst "HE cares for the sparrow" is that not what the word says? How much more do you think HE cares for you. So lift up your eyes toward your help "Just a thought to share with fellow travelers"

Think about it...

The saying goes "Friends don't let friends drive drunk", because everyone knows that driving under the influence causes harm to them and innocent bystanders. I believe strongly that the same sentiment should hold true even more with fellow brothers of like faith. The bible says that "Jesus Wept" when he came to the city of Jerusalem, knowing the condition of the people inside. Compassion, is what lead our savior to weep over the city. What an example for us to have gotten from our Lord. All you have to do is read the newspaper once weekly or listen to a commentary on the radio, you'll see real fast the shape this world is in. On every hand there seems that there is no such thing as compassion anymore. Family members killing, family members, selfishness running ramped everywhere you look. If there is anyplace were compassion should be shown, it ought to be in the church. Not excluding our reasonable service to the lost.(Having love one for another is bible) Just as much as "Go ye out into all the world" Charity begins at home. There is not enough time and there is no space for being unmerciful. We only have one go around in this life, with everything that is in us, lets grab ahold of it and have compassion for one another. Brethren, do not allow brethren to hurt alone, they bear up one another.
