A cool story of how God works

Some time before church on Sunday, a lady told our song leader that the tune of a certain hymn had been running through her mind and asked if he would lead it during the singing portion of the service. So, he does. The hymn was Open My Eyes, that I May See. Unbeknownst to both of them, the sermon of the day was entitled Open My Eyes and the minister (my dad) had chosen to play a video of a song with the title of Open Our eyes. But then it gets better! Before the hymn was led by the song leader and the title of the sermon revealed, the man heading the Lord’s table quoted Helen Keller as reportedly saying, ” the only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision.” He then said something about needing to have our eyes open.

So, there was no doubt in the minds of anyone paying attention that God absolutely wanted to give us the message of being alert, and our eyes focused on Him.

This is not the first time such things have happened. Praise God for that, and for the little miracles that remind us He is still in control!

A prominent rabbi is speaking out against comments that were made earlier this month by former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.), who discussed the end times during a radio program and said that Christians should share Jesus Christ with everyone, “even among the Jews.”

Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, author of the book “Kosher Jesus” and founder of the World Values Network — a group devoted to defending the state of Israel — is now calling on Bachmann to ”retract ‘misguided’ comments about bringing Jews into Christianity.”

“The Jewish state of Israel truly is a miracle of the hand of God. This is a fulfillment of God’s word,” Bachmann said during the interview. “We recognize the shortness of the hour and that’s why we as a remnant want to be faithful in these days and do what it is that the Holy Spirit is speaking to each one of us, to be faithful in the kingdom and to help bring in as many as we can — even among the Jews — share Jesus Christ with everyone that we possibly can because, again, he’s coming soon.” CONTINUE

Where is the urgency?

Very few ministers of God’s Word are discussing the return of Jesus and the upcoming tribulation. Those who may mention it, in regards mostly to the moral decline of America, do not seem to have a sense of urgency in their messages. Jesus is coming back, folks! Look around you! The signs are EVERYWHERE. The rapture is imminent and just around the corner. This should make ALL of us, not just preachers, have a sense of urgency to spread the Word. If you really believe that what you believe is really real, then now is the time to shout it!

I don’t even know how to begin…

so let this be a stream-of-consciousness open letter to any who will read it. I feel an overwhelming pull to say a few things. I have had this nudging for a few days, but placed it on the back burner until I could organize my thoughts. My thoughts are still not organized, but the nudging has become a full blown shove. So here we go.

We have the IS executing its reign of terror throughout the middle east. Would-be jihadists up to evil deeds throughout the entire world. Even naïve, “searching-for-something-bigger-than-they-are” Americans are joining the fray. Meanwhile, our media and government are hell-bent on convincing us that Islam has nothing to do with the senseless slaughters.

History is rewritten and revised daily. When we turn on the news, we don’t know if what is reported is true, the wild imaginings of a narcissist or propaganda and deception devised by the satanically-driven global leaders who are determined to see the NWO become a reality.

After announcing America’s policy on terror as “strategic patience”, our president has now decided that maybe something ought to be done about the IS after all.  I’m not sure I believe that either, but I digress. So, for all appearances, we are now entering a “mini” (?) war on IS and extremism.

Let’s not forget Putin’s not-so-little tantrum. He is a kettle about to blow.

Looks like we are headed for WWIII folks.

That’s just the beginning. We are a nation that delights in SIN. Yes, SIN. That is the proper term for the rampant immorality that is calling good evil and evil good.

People are being deceived left and right, in all areas. The worst thing is, many suspect things are bad but are too self-absorbed or complacent to even care.

Everyone makes their own reality nowadays and we are told that is acceptable. So long as we all tolerate one another’s reality, we should be allowed to do and speak as we please. God forbid anyone dare JUDGE another. Even, or shall I say especially, within our churches.

The only reality that is not acceptable is that which is literally taught in the Bible. Folks, I have news for you, it is the ONLY reality. It does not matter what we think, how we feel or what we want; there is an actual black and white reality.

Why do you think God referred to Himself as I AM? That’s because, HE IS, and He has a thing or two to say about the affairs of man and his future. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the tab above entitled How I Know the Bible is True. Still don’t believe me? Then I double dog dare you to ask Jesus to reveal Himself to you.  What have you got to lose? This world is going to hell, whether you believe in one or not is irrelevant. You know things are bad. Jesus is the answer. Time is running out.
