    From The Vault – The Red Steps

    This was an old post I thought I had lost from a site issue, but came to mind yesterday. I hope it blesses someone, it did me when God gave it to me. The Red Steps Of Solomon 1 Kings 10:11-12 11 And the navy also of Hiram, that brought gold from Ophir, brought in from Ophir great plenty of almug trees, and precious stones.  12 And the king made of the almug trees pillars for the house of the LORD, and for the king’s house, harps also and psalteries for singers: there came no such almug trees, nor were seen unto this day.  2 Chronicles 9:11 11 And the…

    Book Review – Eye Witness Miracles

    Quote- “This book will connect & bring people to an awareness of the Supernatural Heighten their hunger to acquaint themselves with faith they have that they’ve never allowed to be used.” – Jerry Holland I believe in God’s power to do the miraculous. I’ve seen Him do some mind boggling things. It’s about here, that most people start thinking of several negative events, or experiences, they may have witnessed. Everyone will tell you, there are counterfeit fifty dollars bills out there, but they will also admit the real ones work very well. I know what it is to be healed, because I’ve been there. I’ve watched God heal others, and…

    For All Israel

    2 Chronicles 29:24 ESV 24 and the priests slaughtered them and made a sin offering with their blood on the altar, to make atonement for all Israel. For the king commanded that the burnt offering and the sin offering should be made for all Israel. The kingdom of the ten tribes of Israel, had been carried away captive, and the kingdom was destroyed. This was due to their idolatry, and the deeds of their kings. Years before, after the ten tribes had rejected the family of David, they fell into idol worship. After generations of Israel receiving warnings from God to change, the kingdom had been destroyed. Judah was still…

    Wiping Away Tears

    September 11, 2001, nineteen years later, I still remember. I remember we were all stunned, I remember we all hurting, I remember we were all Americans. For the few days after, it wasn’t Republicans or Democrat, it wasn’t Left or Right. That year, we didn’t care about a divisive election less than a year before. We cared for the people in Pennsylvania, New York, and Washington who lost loved ones. We cared for the babies who’s Daddy’s and Mommy’s weren’t coming home. We cared for each other. I pray we never face that kind of pain as a nation again. Yet I do pray we respond that way again. The…

    Are We Being Kind?

    Did you know the word Kind, used by The Lord in Luke 6:35, and Paul In Ephesians, also means employed professionals useful? Kindness is not self serving, rather it is serving of one’s self. Benefiting others, not because it benefits you. To put it another way, Jesus said all men will know that you’re My Disciples because you have love one for another. Kindness, if tied to being employed is a commercial for God’s Love. What better thing could we broadcast today than that? Ads are everywhere, from the internet to social media. What are you and I advertising about The Kingdom? Are we doing a good job sharing His…

    Generations

    Christian Education has been so important to both Ashley’s, and my life. Both of us were blessed to have graduated from Christian Schools. I was blessed to go to Soul’s Harbor Christian Academy, and Lighthouse Christian School as a child. Along with my parents, Sis Gloria Livingston, Bishop Dean Livingston, and Bishop David Peters supported me throughout my education. Sis. Livingston also supported my education in art. She, even though I was considered too young, fought to get me the Art Paces to encourage my love of drawing. Sis. Gloria Livingston was always a champion, not only for the school, but for the students. Those are not always the same…

    From A Rifle To A Wrench

    Two vowels, one consonant, that’s what you have when you abbreviate the United States of America. The USA has always been a country of hard work and action. Labor Day is designed as a celebration of those every day men and women who work to provide for their family, care for their neighbors, and support their country. They consistently, whether first, second, or third shift, arrive to tackle any obstacle before them. Hard work not only helped build a nation, but to teach generations the importance of each day. It can be easy to overlook how vital our jobs are. Yet, from the man we buy our coffee from, to…

    Job A Servant In The House

    A few months ago, Pastor asked the Minister to speak throughout some of the Bible Studies on Wednesday nights. The week I spoke, had been a difficult week. Truth be told, it’s been a difficult year. I wanted something that would encourage someone, possibly lighten the loads of the weary. People need gladness right now, and so when I went to the well to see what God had chosen, He gave me a text… in the book of Job. God doesn’t only have a sense of humor, He has the perfect sense of timing. Which, since He created time itself, only makes sense. Although, we still sometimes question, which is…

    Acrylic Lincoln Portrait Of America

    The color is phalo blue, it’s the color left over on my finger from signing the painting. I just finished my portrait of Abraham Lincoln.  While it’s not the most important painting I’ve ever done, it is the best acrylic portrait I’ve ever painted, and I believe, it’s a portrait of America. The colors I used were, in addition to phalo blue, were cerulean blue, burnt umber, burnt sienna, deep yellow, lemon yellow, titanium white, permanent black, vermillion, and crimson. The gray in the President’s eyes, they say his eyes were mostly gray, were made up of cerulean blue, lemon yellow, and vermillion. Call it what you will, but I find…

    Treasures In Heaven

    Matthew 6:19-20 (KJV) 19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:  20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: A person was asked, “What would you want people to say about you in a hundred years?” My comical reaction was, “Something”, but actually then I thought of twelve men in the first century. None of them did one thing to ensure their name survived.  The apostles did not build one monument to themselves. They didn’t leave behind a fortune,…
