Empty Tomb!

Satan uses distractions
on the road to the
empty tomb.
We get so busy doing
setting all things in order,
preparing, cleansing, serving.
So we overlook what
God is doing
on the road to the
empty tomb.

Can You See Clearly?

Gentleness’ heartbeat

is Christ,

Kindness’ heartbeat

is Christ,

Compassion’s heartbeat

is Christ,

Patience’s heartbeat

is Christ,

Peace’s heartbeat

is Christ,

Joy’s heartbeat

is Christ,

Mercy’s heartbeat

is Christ,

Grace’s heartbeat

is Christ,

Love’s heartbeat

is Christ,

Who’s hold is so Strong

Death and Darkness takes

Flight,

Amen.

Can you see Clearly?

Who do you say I am?

Mark 8: 22-28;

God’s Power Prevails!

In the face of

Persecution,

one man of prayer

refused to pray

to an earthy king

Evil’s eyes of flames exploded,

a lion’s mouth awaits.

Yahweh Predominant’s.

Yahweh’s Power Prevails.

~

In the face of

Trials

an earthy king commanded

worship the idol

or enter the furnace

whose flames are hotter than hell.

The three replied;

no need to answer,

Yahweh Preserves.

Yahweh’s Power Prevails.

~

In the face of

Prison

a man sleeps

as the church prays

Yahweh Prempts.

Yahweh’s Power Prevails.

~

In the face of overwhelming

Odds

a giant and a boy

stand face to face

Yahweh Protects.

Yahweh’s  Power Prevails.

~

In the face of Satan’s

Fury

all mankind bound to

Hell

by the blood of

Yeshua

Yahweh’s only Son

our Risen King,

Yahweh Provides.

Yahweh’s Power Prevails.

Amen.

Monday Quote!

Matthew  Arnold 1822-1888

For this is the true strength of guilty kings,

When they corrupt the souls of those they rule.

The Question

When I first saw Your face!

I came over with an amazing grace.

I felt your love abound in me,

with heavenly angels all around

once!

But now I feel You left me behind!

An I just another man gone blind?

 You have made a lame man walk

and a blind man see.

     But why, not for me?

If faith ‘is’ the key then death is the door.

But when You open death’s door

will there be any more?

The ONLY Question truly is,

DO You really exist?

Or are You just a theory,

like those evolutionist’s?

End

Why is death so great?

It will be there for your fate.

Heaven and Hell we surly know.

But where do we belong above or below?

I know its face I know it true.

But when its time it will come for me too.

The Necktie of Purpose: A poem

Here is a poem I think you find that stretches  you out a wee bit!

In Memory of Chuck Smith

Pastor Chuck, Thank-you for your service. It was through Your ministry that I came to know the Lord Jesus Christ as savior. I will miss you, James

ACORNS?

Someone once said, “Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.” That I find is a mystery to be pondered for sure. 

Still yet I find an even greater mystery for pondering: So numberless are the acorns born each year yet all do fall. Countless acorns are gathered by the beasts of the trees, the beasts of field, and the birds of the air. Acorns unnumbered that are carried away and then, they are no more.

Still yet are the untold acorns that fall to the ground and are never to be found. These lost untold acorns die, rot, and then return to dust of the earth from which they came.

Still yet there are the numbering of acorns that fall to the ground, that do not enter the earth, and yet still they die. In the spring when the rains come these acorns sprout up with new life and push upward to the heavens. Yet when the sun beats down on them in the summer drought, they wither, and death wins. For they are the numbered that have no root deep into the earth. For these numbered did not feed upon the nutrients of the earth nor have they drank fully of the water of life. For these who are the counted also die and return to dust of the earth from which they came.

Still yet are the acorns, the few, that fall to the ground, enter the earth and die. When the spring rain comes these few rise up with new life, and push upward to the heavens as their roots dig downward deep into the earth. Yet when the sun beats down, in the summer drought they do not wither. These few filled with new life have roots dug down deep into the earth to feed upon nutrients of the earth and drink freely of the water of life. As years upon years past, storms come, flood waters rise and fall, yet the years of drought pass by, these few with new life keep growing on. Massive oaks they have become producing much fruit and always growing upward till their purpose has been made full. Then they also die and return to the dust of the earth from which they came. 

 Still yet I find this to be a mystery: So is it also the same with a man? 

Last Request!

May I pass down to you

a little of

my life’s knowledge?

Now these days

 young people hardly muse

the words of old men.

Time has marched on

sunsets of my past

far exceed

my sunrises I’ve yet to see.

Entering the final turn

knowing the finish line

 the home stretch lies ahead.

I sprint now to

empty myself of all mercy

that has been poured into me.

Leaving no prayer unsaid

no un-repentant sin

no hurt un-forgiven

blessing all who 

around me I see.

Reaching out in love

to those who hate me

laying hands on the sick

instructing the children

encouraging the young

picking up the fallen

I will sprint on.

Exhaling all self

denying the flesh

exhausting the body

no time to rest

yes I sprint on.

 When I cross the finish line

to look upon my race 

regrets I will not see

I will not wish 

I had prayed more

 read the Bible more 

given more

loved more

for I will have

used even my last breath

for my Lord.

Amen.

My Dad and I have always been very close and after I gave my life to Jesus we became even closer. Four years ago in August my Dad went to spend all eternity at our Abba Father’s throne. I was asked to write his eulogy this was what I came up with. My mother disliked it so much,  pitched a fit, and it was never read.  If you knew my Dad, one would say yes that was he.
