Religious Persecution

Religious persecution is a never-ending battle. Innocent Christians are crucified every day in the name of God for believing in a higher way of life. On our home turf, distance protects us; yet examples around the world appear in our own living room. If…

Weren’t We Warned?

Today is the day to exploit my messages from God. I think it is important to summarize and discuss the last three week’s blogs – The Stars Are Lining Up, The Ides of Suspicion, and What If Christ Came to Rule the White House….

What If Christ Came to Rule the White House?

The Bible references Christ’s return to earth, and there’s little doubt it won’t happen soon. God will conquer Satan and his sin-filled world right at his own doorstep. The Great Tribulation will expose the Antichrist, led by Satan, who will form armies to slaughter…

The Stars are Lining Up

I awoke with a monumental feeling God is communicating with me, revealing His plans for this world. It is time to prepare for a significant force which controls the universe. God is coming to rule the earth once more. My heart beats an unsynchronized…

The Ides of Suspicion

The ides of March are upon us and superstitions of March 15th run rampant across many nations. Thank you, Julius Caesar, for suggesting this as a bad luck day… or is it really superstitious? Senators assassinated this “dictator for life,” on the steps of…

Crying “Wolf”

Across the pond, a familiar Aesop tale sends a very succinct message. A little shepherd boy stood guarding sheep at the foothills. It bored him waiting for a wolf to chase the flocks. He thought it more entertaining to watch the villagers run to…

Cosmology or God?

Today, my blog explains controversies and theories, ignited by one of my readers. Please allow me to clarify I am not an astronomer, scientist, or a qualified professional of the world’s atmosphere; so, I wish only to suggest comments based on biblical evidence. My…

The Warning Signs

I approached the corner of a gorgeous, stately community. A large sign didn’t show which direction to proceed, and its definition confused me. Marveled by the message, I wondered if God was trying to tell me something. Dare I make a wrong turn because…

The Wall

I meandered through the lush ivy alleys where courtyards honored memories of the past. Majestic stonework around the church dated back to who knows how old. ___________________________ Want to join in the discussion about The Wall? Please click the link to go to Blogging…

Cornerstone-A Designated Landmark

In the beginning, a body of water or a pile of rocks designated property lines. God drew out a line marking the earth’s plane as His cornerstone, a designated landmark when He first created the world. As time passed, walls were nearly always built…

Learning to Walk

All throughout life, we live like we’re playing in a scrimmage game – time is on our side to make things right. But, along the way we suffer multiple hurts and wounds. We stumble and fall because we never really learned to walk in…

The Last Ride

A somber mood lingers… one less life on earth begins their journey. The black hearse pulls up to the curb. As it latches closed, it makes a distinctive noise only heard by those who no longer exist. The driver waits for the breezeway gates…

When Does a House Become a Home?

It is so gratifying to step over the threshold of a brand new residence. Odors from a completed punch list still linger, and in the misty sunset, the door opens to a different life. The placement of furniture and filled boxes may not be…

“Unity in Diversity”

“Unity in diversity” is an old, prominent principle of many religions around the world. _________________________________________ Let’s have a discussion about Unity in Diversity!

Fires Do Not Burn Downhill

God watched an accident happen to a family of four, and by His grace, the innocent victims walked away. I acknowledge the fact many do not believe in miracles, but you may change your mind when you read this story. First, let me state,…

God Howls

God howls calling all His children to come sit and comprehend His words. But, most of the younger generation pays little attention. The innocent become caught up in a triangle of apprehension while trying to cope with the ways of the world. Do they…

Ego Avenue

The giant oaks turned golden in the fall, shading the avenue of homes trimmed of gold. The walkways of washed aggregate and stained concrete floors in the garage smell of money. An oriental rug lies squarely beneath the oil plug of the minister’s Rolls…

Characters and Actors

It’s the third week of August, and our cooler weather is so out of character for Arkansas. Even a nearby chameleon notices the change. He lays in the flowers changing colors so as not to be seen by enemies. I asked God, “Is he…

“The Golden Rule”

In matters of the world today, the Golden Rule is better pronounced, those with the gold make the rules. It’s sad, but true, and not very Christian-like nor Godly. How did this uniting principle, which Jesus taught on the Sermon of the Mount, evolve…

United We Should Stand

I’m looking forward to attending a fifty-year high school class reunion soon. Together we will gather, once again, from different walks of life. We began as one student body at a tender age and played hard, but eventually, we spread our wings and flew…

Ye of Little Faith

A little boy sat in the corner with his nose against the wall. He never realized how disruptive he was to other students. The class frowned at him, but he still didn’t understand his misbehavior during the lesson. A bell loudly rang, and kids…

Jesus, John, and Paul – Amen!

I told my wife I felt as if I am starting off in the middle of this blog, with no beginning nor an end. It all began with research on questions plaguing my brain about the simple word, amen. For example, do you know…
