Sabbatical: Update

Greetings, Fellow Bloggers!

This past month and a half have been quite the adventure. And definitely NOT what I had in mind when I set out on this sabbatical. Which, ironically has only served to further my conviction that this time away has been prescribed by God. And has also unfolded exactly as He had in mind.

Sabbatical

Good Day, Fellow Bloggers!

After much prayer and consideration, I’ve decided to embark on a Sabbatical; from blogging and pretty much everything else I can possibly set aside right now. As of today I’m thinking one month, but God may have other plans as time goes on. I will keep you updated.

Who Sets the Standard? Revisited

For many things in life, that’s really the question isn’t it? Who sets the standard? And what qualifies them to do so? In today’s society, where there seems to be no absolutes, one might even wonder if there are any standards.

Willful Blindness?

How many of us have sensed the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives only to turn away from what He has impressed upon our hearts? And if we are sensitive to His presence, don’t we feel the heaviness that comes from having grieved Him? Somehow we instinctively know that we will not move forward until we have repented and dealt with whatever issue He is addressing.

Put On Your New Self – Revisited

If there’s one thing the Bible is crystal clear about, it’s that we humans are profoundly valuable in the eyes of God! From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is the story of God’s immense love for His wayward creation. And its pages reveal His sacrificial plan of redemption to restore humanity to eternal fellowship with Himself…

My Defense

If you follow other blogs, as I’m sure you do, you may have seen a post about me from SpaniardVIII that was posted this morning Spaniard VIII (who does not know me or my writing) makes some very serious charges about me which unfortunately, he did without first contacting me (as the Bible instructs us…

Full Disclosure

Recently, I have been accused of misrepresenting myself on WordPress. In what way, you might ask? Challenging those who hold to Traditional Biblical Views, in terms of the timing of the rapture of the Church. Not holding to a traditional Pre-Tribulational Rapture, yet promoting ministries on my blog that do, thus misleading my viewers as…

Are You of God?

“Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.” John 8:47 ESV — Jesus —  When you hear the words of God, what is your response? Are you confused? Do you rationalize; disregard; take them as anything but literal? Do…

Planted By Streams of Water

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord , and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams…

The Kingdom Of This World

Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven saying: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will reign for ever and ever.”Revelation 11:15 NEThttps://bible.com/bible/107/rev.11.15.NET Amen! Come Lord Jesus!

Mediator of A New Covenant

I’m reading through Leviticus right now (need I say more?) and wow, I cannot be happier to know that we are not dependent on daily sacrifices and a multitude of rules and rituals to have a relationship with God. My mind and memory aren’t what they used to be and I’m afraid I would constantly…

The Ruler of The Kingdom of The Air

On another Sabbath, Jesus entered the synagogue and was teaching. Now a man was there whose right hand was withered. The experts in the law and the Pharisees watched Jesus closely to see if he would heal on the Sabbath, so that they could find a reason to accuse him. But he knew their thoughts, and said…

A House Built Upon Rock

I find it interesting that among these two vastly different groups of people, the following is equally true: Both are building houses Both hear the words of God Both are subjected to the rain, flood, and wind beating against their house The outcome of each, lies wholly upon their elemental choice In this narrative, Jesus…

We Are Not Blind Too, Are We?

Now as Jesus was passing by, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who committed the sin that caused him to be born blind, this man or his parents?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but he was born blind so that the acts of God…

The Lord’s Servant Must Not Be Quarrelsome

If any phrase captures our culture today it’s, “Fight to the Death!“. Or better yet, “No Holds Barred”. But the fact remains, honey catches more flies than vinegar. How do I know? Because the Bible tells me so (see above). There is more at stake than just winning an argument. And by the way, if…

Bless and Do Not Curse

“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and…
