One Lost Sheep. Revisited

I have been hearing so much lately from fellow believers about trials and suffering, and they wonder, “where is God in all of this?” It’s easy to feel abandoned when everything seems to be caving in and piling up all around us. But know for certain that God sees you. He has not left you. The days are quickly coming when our faith will be severely tested. Perhaps today is the day He has chosen to test our faith in the fires of adversity, so that when those days come we will stand firm and steadfast in Him.

Rapture & Wrath: Ready or Not? Pt 2B – A Scroll With Seven Seals

In part 2B of this series, David focuses on the first six seals around the scroll in Revelation 6 and the prophetic events associated with each of them. Remarkably, the description of these seals in the last book of the Bible precisely parallels Jesus’ teaching in Matthew 24. When seen together, these biblical passages reveal a chronology of end-time events that may surprise you.

Rapture & Wrath: Ready or Not? Part 1

Down through the ages, the Rapture of the Church has been one of the sustaining and most anticipated events in all of Christendom. Simply put, the Rapture is the singular event when Jesus Christ, at His second coming, will gather His elect from the four corners of planet Earth to meet Him in the sky, as outlined in 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17.

Believe

To walk in white, Pure and unblemished;A pillar in the temple of my God;His name on my forehead;Life Everlasting. To Believe–Seems such a simple thing,So small a price;For a debt I’m unable to pay.Could it be true? The Lamb of God Slain for my trespasses,Holds out His hands and bids me come.Come Into His kingdom, His…

If Only for A Moment

In the morning I riseAnd my thoughts turn to You. What joy it must have beenTo walk with YouTo talk with YouTo sit at your feet and listenAs You spoke Words of Life. Oh, to be–The dust of the paths that You walked upon!The wind that blew through your hair;Or the warm sunlight that kissed…

The Age of Grace

How many of you know someone who isn’t presently suffering, or undergoing trials, or facing adversity in some way or another? Or who has never suffered any of these things? How about those who are Christians? Do they seem to be faring better than others in your circle of family and friends? I think we would…

The Lord Will Not Forsake His People!

And all the people said to Samuel, “Pray for your servants to the Lord your God, that we may not die, for we have added to all our sins this evil, to ask for ourselves a king.” And Samuel said to the people, “Do not be afraid; you have done all this evil. yet do not turn aside from…

Rest

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 Rest in Him…  Lay your troubles at His…

It Was for Freedom That Christ Set Us Free

“It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. Behold I, Paul, say to you that if you receive circumcision, Christ will be of no benefit to you. And I testify again to every man who receives circumcision, that he is under obligation to keep the…

Spring

Light bursts forth into the darkness!Bold and ConfidentIn its wake, shadows quickly retreat;A futile attempt at survivalThe silent Force of Life begins to stirIn the icy recesses of my heart–Its warmth enveloping; Life surgingAt last, Death’s stronghold is shattered!Giving way to Hope’s rising And sweet call of liberation once again A follow up to Winter Copyright ©…

Winter

Darkness closes in with evil intent In the distance a sliver of light beckons,  But I am weak; unwilling to move At last, its promise of liberation falls silent– Illusions of safety and immunity lie shattered Like so many fortresses built on sand Fear and uncertainty take their place Nothing is as it seems Death…

One Lost Sheep

“What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray?” Matthew 18:12 Maybe you’re like me and when you first read this verse you thought, “This is such…

Are We in Danger of Repeating History?

At the time of Jesus’ birth, the Jews were living under the brutal rule of Rome and were anxiously awaiting their coming King to liberate them from their enemy. Expectations of His appearing were at an all time high, because the fulfillment of Daniel’s very precise prophecy concerning the coming of Messiah was at hand:…

Captive

At times it seems I’m held captiveby the thoughts that rage within meMy heart aches with the immeasurable joyand mystery that surrounds my comingto knowledge of Him who loves me What shall I say? How can I release my soul to behold Him?To be consumed by the OneWho is the sole desire of my heart?…

Thank You, Jesus

All my life I searched.I don’t really know what I was looking for;something to hold on to, maybe. A reason for living.  My heart broken, my mind confused to the point of insanity.Happiness would show its face, only to hide againthe moment I reached out to take hold of it.  I was so alone.Surrounded by…

Where Does My Help Come From?

Our God is SO Amazing! So Worthy of our Trust! We are SO Loved! We should never fear what life may bring… Psalm 121 1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from? 2 My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. 3 He will not let your foot slip—…

Why Do I Look at Problems as the Absence of God?

Why do I look at problems as the absence of God?And why does my faith so easily abandon me? The rains come. The storms come.And they will beat upon my house.This is the reality of life for everyone. The question is not, Why did this happen?Or, Why has God allowed it?But, What can I become because…
