Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths where is the good way and walk therein, and ye shall have rest for your souls. Jeremiah 6:16 Do you know how the ancient Israelites responded to this call? God offered them rest for their souls and they said, …
The word, STAND (in bold and all caps), has been emblazoned on my mind for many months. It seems that everywhere I look, everything I read and everything I hear is encouraging me to take a firm spiritual stand and to not move from it. So many scriptures have been flooding over my soul regarding standing firm …
All my friends know that I love the Indiana Jones movies. I love the swashbuckling persona of the Indiana Jones character which is so reminiscent of the old Errol Flynn adventure movies. My favorite in the series is “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” This movie centers on the quest to find the Holy Grail, …
I have been troubled of late by hearing so many Christians posting on social media stories of how they are comforted by the spirits of deceased loved ones and also by statements and sweet comforting poetry that their deceased loved ones are now angels in heaven. While I respect their sorrow and understand the heavy burden …
Whenever the topic of sin is mentioned, the accusatory statement, even from Christians who should know better, is whipped out of the mouth with the speed of Wyatt Earp’s six-shooter, “JUDGE NOT”!  And whenever a scripture is mentioned in a discussion, the audible gasps of horror are usually followed by the accusation of being a “legalist.” Must be the …
This world is writhing in the birth pains that Jesus told us so much about in the 24th chapter of the Gospel of Matthew. The nations are rocked almost daily by devastating earthquakes or other natural disasters that take lives, destroy homes and entire cities, separate families in death and shock the people to their very core. Venezuela is …
Last week I had a brief conversation with a precious friend as we passed each other in the drugstore. I asked how she was doing and her reply was, “I’m tired. I’m just so tired.” She is tired. She is carrying a heavy burden and her exhaustion is evident. But her remark wasn’t in reference …
“Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, that you may be successful wherever you go.” Joshua 1:7 These were God’s words to Joshua when he was placed in the leadership position over the …
The great Apostle Paul had very little tolerance for foolishness in regards to spiritual business. He especially disdained foolish women with their nonstop yammering about things of which they were ignorant. So often, Paul is portrayed as a misogynistic woman-hater because of his strong words toward some women. Note that I said “SOME” women. In my humble …
I will therefore that men pray every where, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting. 1 Timothy 2:8 I was raised in a Pentecostal church and if you know anything about Pentecostals, they are hand raising, Jesus praising people.  Both sides of my family are Pentecostal and growing up in a culture of raising hands in the church …
