    Through Faith

    Hebrews 11:3 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear. I love this verse, but Wednesday night during Bible Study at Point Of Mercy in Nashville something happened. The first four words stuck out to me like never before. As Christians, we tend to focus on the big event parts of Bible verses, in this case the “worlds were framed … .” It’s in our nature, Wednesday though, those four words lit up in my heart. I checked six different translations, and out of all of them, there were…

    Adams, Friendship, & Faith

    A Letter From Adams To Jefferson: Now I will avow, that I then believed, and now believe, that those general Principles of Christianity, are as eternal and immutable, as the Existence and Attributes of God; and that those Principles of Liberty, are as unalterable as human Nature and our terrestrial, mundane System. He was not popular, he wasn’t celebrated, in fact he was mocked. They jokingly referred to him as “His Rotundness”. John Adams was not George Washington, but that wasn’t his problem. I doubt a second Washington would have lived up to the scrutiny of Washingyon’s shadow. Adams problem was also his virtue, he was John Adams. Was he…

    I Don’t Know, And That’s Ok

    Psalms 133 1 LORD, my heart is not haughty, nor mine eyes lofty: neither do I exercise myself in great matters, or in things too high for me. 2 Surely I have behaved and quieted myself, as a child that is weaned of his mother: my soul [is] even as a weaned child. 3 Let Israel hope in the LORD from henceforth and for ever. One of my favorite Psalms is nestled away in a section known as The Song Of Degrees. I say it this way because, it isn’t talked about very much. It sits quietly waiting for someone to read it, and to realize how valuable it is.…

    The Red Steps

    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 king made [of] the algum trees terraces to the house of the LORD, and to the king’s palace, and harps and psalteries for singers: and there were none such seen before in the land of Judah. In The…

    God Fights With You

    God gave me this around 3:30 am for someone. Take heart for God is with us! To all those who are fighting a battle, take heart, God is with you. David’s hand clave to the sword because he knew that God was leading him in battle. The mulberry trees rustled because The Ancient Of Days walked forth armed against the Philistines. You are not fighting alone, He is with you! No matter how hot the battle, no matter how long the engagement, and no matter how weary you may feel, you are not alone! God said “Be not weary in well doing, for ye shall reap if you faint not.”…

    Submission, Sacrifice, And Victory

    Joshua 6:1, 25-26 6:1 And the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the LORD: and the LORD delivered them into the hand of Midian seven years. 6:25 And it came to pass the same night, that the LORD said unto him, Take thy father’s young bullock, even the second bullock of seven years old, and throw down the altar of Baal that thy father hath, and cut down the grove that [is] by it: 6:26 And build an altar unto the LORD thy God upon the top of this rock, in the ordered place, and take the second bullock, and offer a burnt sacrifice with the wood…

    Somewhere

    I am so thankful for our freedom, as Christians and Americans. I know the fourth is past, but I was thinking of how much I take our Freedom Of Worship for granted. Today, I’m writing a post about Christianity that will be published for all the world to see. Somewhere though, our fellow brothers and sisters, hide to say their morning prayers. While too often, due to busy schedules and other reasons we tell ourselves, are left unmade at all. Somewhere, a Minister whispers a Message given him by God. Meanwhile, our assemblies have vacant seats, as Men Of God share openly God’s Message. In free spaces, Bibles are neglected,…

    Hope To The End

    1 Peter 1:13 13 Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; The word hope has many synonyms. Although they’re similar in concept, they vary greatly. Two synonyms are plan, and daydream, while two more are goal and wish. Plan and goal are words we use when we are committed to the pursuit of something. While daydreams and wishes are pleasant ways to pass the time. So my question to you today is this. The dreams that you have, are you managing your time in order to…

    The One And Only

    I recently discovered an English king that I was unfamiliar with, known as Alfred The Great.  He is the only English king to have that term applied to him.  Think of it, the Henry’s, Queen Victoria, and the two Elizabeth’s don’t have it.  Yet, a king from the year 899 has it. History says that he was a good king.  Those who toil through the pages of the past, uncovering mysteries in the dust, tell us of his improvements that countries, including ours, still benefit from today.  I am a history buff, I love to read of long ago battles.  I am excited at the thoughts of great kings, and…

    Returning To The Sheep

    1 Samuel 17:15 15 But David went and returned from Saul to feed his father’s sheep at Bethlehem. 1 Samuel 17:34 And David said unto Saul, Thy servant kept his father’s sheep, and there came a lion, and a bear, and took a lamb out of the flock: In all the years that I’ve read of David and Goliath, I never remembered making the connection between these two verses.  It was like a laser zeroing in on this the other day.  Is it possible that the attack of the lion and the bear occurred after David returned from Saul?  I had always assumed that these events were unrelated to the…
