ANOINTED vs APPOINTED              

To start off with I thought we should first go to Webster and ask him what the meaning of each word is. So, we find that the word ANOINT means: to rub over with oil; to consecrate with *unction.

The word APPOINT means: to fix or set officially; (in other words something or someone appoints someone or something.)   *Unction: the act of anointing, as for medical or religious purposes.   Who is it that we look to for anointing and who do we run to for appointing?  

EXODUS 28:41 And you shall put them on Aaron your brother and on his sons with him; and you shall anoint them and *ordain them and *consecrate them, that they may serve ME as priests.         *ordain: to decree; establish; enact      

*consecrate: dedicated to a sacred purpose        
So as you can see here according to Webster Anointing comes from God and appointing comes from God and or Man. If a person is not chosen by God, or anointed by Him there is no way that that person could ever by appointed by God. However, a person could be appointed by man, but the anointing of man weighs little compared to the anointing of God.         In 1989 I surrendered my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, and it wasn’t until 1995 or so that I felt the call of God on my life with an anointing to carry His message to a dying world. I went to my Pastor at the time and told him what I believe the Lord had told me, however God had not spoken to him of it until a few weeks later. It was at that time that I was appointed by my pastor. Some years later while talking with Doctor Jim Adams he made the statement to me that I should have been ordained by my pastor because God had already ordained me for His service. A few months later I was ordained under Anchor Bay.        
The anointing of God carries a large burden and one that is not to be taken lightly. Jesus said that we are to “TAKE UP OUR CROSS AND FOLLOW HIM” Until we take up our cross and follow Him we will never truly know what it means to be ANOINTED OF GOD! We can only speculate.       
Over the past several years I have been used by God everywhere I have been, and it has always amazed me how He works through those who allow Him to use them. God is aware of those who are His anointed, and He watches over them daily. He knows their coming ins and their going outs, He is aware of any and all words spoken from their lips, thoughts and ideas that flood their minds, actions that they take or do, He is well aware of their imperfections, and He Loves them still.           I for one am Thankful every moment and every breath I take that I serve a God who is forgiving and loving and truly cares for me.      
HAVE you been anointed by God, have you been ordained and consecrated by God, or has man done it all for you? Matthew 6:33 SEEK FIRST THE KINGDOM OF GOD AND HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS, AND ALL THINGS WILLL BE ADDED TO YOU!   PSALM 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord; And He will give you the desires Of your heart.        
Seriously, what should be the desires of your heart?  Wealth? Health? Spouse? Car? What? Or should it be what God intended it to be; a CLOSER MORE INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM? I think that the longer we wait for the Lord to act on our behalf or to return the less we fellowship with Him. Think for a moment; if we didn’t talk to a spouse or a child of maybe even a friend for a long time would they feel left out and maybe even alone? How about you, if they didn’t spend time with you would you feel alone?         
Don’t you think it is past time for you to fellowship one on one with the Lord?    

PRAY THIS PRAYER Heavenly Father here my prayer, I am in need Of Your presence in my life, to guide me and To hold me when the going gets rough. I ask You if I have been anointed or not, am I one who has been called by You or am I just Another person chosen by man? I ask all Of this so that I might know beyond any shadow Of doubt that I am one of Yours. I ask Lord Father, that You take me as I am And bring me into Your understanding That I might become a Servant of the Most High God. I ask all of this in the Name of JESUS CHRIST MY LORD AMEN!


MATTHEW 7:16 “You will know them by their fruits, Grapes are not gathered from thorn Bushes, nor figs from thistles, are they?”            
How many of you remember this commercial for cassette tapes? The idea was that you couldn’t tell by the sound of it if someone was really there singing or if it was a recording. In order to chalk up the sales of the tapes this was one of the best they could come up with. So, lets use it in the concept of Christianity and make believe.  
It is rather difficult to determine if one is really living for the Lord or if they are putting on a show. There are many, many, many sitting in the sanctuaries that pretend to be born again, and very few truly are, we are warned of them throughout scripture, not just the congregation but the preachers and teachers as well, remember they are merely people just like you and I.  
MATTHEW 7:15 “BEWARE of the FALSE prophets, who come to you In sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.”              
How many times have you or I had a “prophecy” given over us by someone and it never came to pass? Some preachers would have us believe it was because of OUR lack of faith, or OUR desire to not have it come to pass; but what about if the person giving the prophecy is a false prophet, and claiming to hear from God but only hears their own thoughts. I wonder if that ever crossed anybody’s mind like it did mine? Or what about the one who gives a partial prophecy and doesn’t give the whole thing, are they REAL, or are they RECORDINGS? One must ask these questions. Remember, it is our very soul that is on the line here and it matters what we believe and what we follow.  
1 John 4:1 BELOVED, do not believe every spirit, but Test the spirits to see whether they are From God; because MANY FALSE PROPHETS have gone into the world.              
How do you test the spirits? The best and easiest way is to KNOW SCRIPTURE, to READ the Bible; you can’t just read the Bible you have to READ THE BIBLE. We were encouraged in scripture to know the Word and get it down into our inner most existence, to eat the word and get into our bowels. KNOW THE WORD of God whereby when the enemy, (false prophets, teachers, and preachers,) arrive you can discern them. With the renewing of your mind in the Word you might be a harder target for the enemy to disrupt. Jesus, when confronted by Satan on the word, retorted with THE Word. And so must we. How easy are we duped into chasing rabbit trails, or crazy ideologies, how simple minded can we get?              
Do we truly believe that we are in a war for our very souls or do we just think it is a lot of hot air the preacher talks about? Take a look around you, see the truth of what the Bible says is going to happen and if it really is happening or isn’t. Bible prophecy coming true right before your eyes. We are witnessing the final days of the prophetic Bible when all nations will rise up against Israel, if you don’t believe me, watch and see. In order for this prophecy to become reality, something great must happen. Any and all nations that side with Israel must cease to be as they have been and turn their backs on Israel.              
God sent warnings to us to be ware of these who speak of God’s guidance when in actuality God has not spoken.   DEUTERONOMY 18:21 “And you may say in your heart, `How shall we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?’ 22 When a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the thing does not come about or come True, that is the thing which the Lord has not Spoken. The prophet has spoken it presumptuously; You shall not be afraid of him.”               
While writing this post I came across a story of a man who was a false prophet, in fact the Bible says his name was Bar-Jesus (which interpreted means son of Jesus.) This man’s name was really Elymas the magician.  
ACTS 13:9 But Saul, who was also known as Paul, Filled with the Holy Spirit, fixed his gaze upon him, 10 and said, “You who are full of all deceit And fraud, you son of the devil, you enemy Of all righteousness, will you not cease to Make crooked the straight ways of the Lord? 11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord Is upon you, and you will be blind and not see The sun for a time.” And immediately a mist And a darkness fell upon him, and he went About seeking those who would lead him by The hand.   All of what has been written here is for encouragement, to those who read and study, for those who do not read and study as well, that you might be informed and that you might truly seek God’s Word and learn to discern true prophecies from false.    
Heavenly Father, Creator of all things on the earth Above the earth, within the earth; all we see And all we can not see but trust that is, I ask That You, O Most Holy One, to have Mercy on me In my fleshly state and redeem me into Your Loving arms. To help me to glean more of Your Love and learn more of You. Teach me to know Your Word more intimately and thus know You Better than I do. Protect my mind and help me To guard my heart in these days that are fast Approaching all around me.
I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ Your Only Begotten Son.

07/01/2019: AND THEN THERE WAS

BEFORE I go too far in this one I want to ask this one question to you the readers. How much of the Bible do you believe? I have more questions to ask after this initial one. Now, what pray tell is PANGAEA? Although you wont or might not find this particular word in the dictionary let me tell you what it is: it means SUPERCONTINENT!              
Now I know you are probably asking what does this PANGAEA have to do with the Bible and God’s Holy Word. Well, let me see if I can explain it.   GENESIS 1:9 Then God said, “Let the waters below the heavens Be gathered into one place, and let the dry land Appear”; and it was so. GENESIS 1:10 And God called the dry land EARTH, And the gathering of the waters He Called SEAS; and God saw that it Was good.                
SUPERCONTINENT (Pangaea) was IN THE BEGINNING, created by God. I have been watching many documentaries lately and one of the main questions they have had is how did the ancient peoples cross oceans and lands to get to other countries. Well, humor me for a moment here, listen to my thoughts on this matter. What if, there was really a Pangaea and not separated lands? Supposing, I mean just suppose that what the Bible says was true and that God created one land mass. Would it be more plausible that ancient peoples could get to western America during the Pangaea? That they never had to build ships and cross oceans? That they could just ride donkeys, camels and so on to cross the land?              
Researchers have been finding more and more HYROGLIPHS AND PETROGLIPHS all over the world, and they are perplexed as to how they got there, and where they came from. Now, remember what God told Adam in the garden?   GENESIS 1:28 And God blessed them and God Said unto them, “Be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, And subdue it; and have dominion over the fish Of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”{KJV}              
Notice the underlined words REPLENISH THE EARTH? Why would God tell them to replenish it? Could it be that it really existed and was fruitful prior to Adam and Eve getting placed in the garden?              
Was the earth, in the beginning, a Pangaea? Were all the continents and islands all combined into one massive land mass, or a supercontinent? It sure would answer the questions many people have about their findings of pyramids found everywhere, and all the art work and so on. Have you ever wondered? Have you ever questioned? I have.              
What would this mean in present days conversations? Probably nothing, and possibly everything. Would it change the way we look at our past, do we even think about our past? The expanse God called Heaven and the waters were below and above Heaven.   GENESIS 1:9 And God said, “let the waters under the heaven Be gathered together unto one place, and let The dry land appear, “and it was so.              
So, there you have it, PANGAEA a SUPERCONTINENT! But what happened along the way that it is no longer Pangaea? Earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, meteors just to name a few reasons that Pangaea is not now. Scientists are now claiming that the islands and continents are edging back together and they figure in the future 200 years they will be back to the original Pangaea. OH well, I doubt I will be here to see that, but You might get to. I know God can do anything, and if He so desired He could cause it to happen right now.              
I know this is not the normal type of impartation, but it is one to bring the mind to think, and think beyond self understanding. How much do You think this could be true? Out of the BOX!    
Lord God, help me to open my mind to the Possibilities of the wonders of Your Creation. Help me to see the Wonders of Your Hands And the works of Your mind. Grant unto me The guidance that You have to share, that I might become wiser in Your ways. I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ

06/15/2019: FOLLOW THE GPS

FOLLOW THE GPS {God’s Positive Solution}            
WOW, what a title HEY? Well, this comes from where Jesus told His disciples: 1 “And You know the way where I AM going.” However, just like many of us and other followers Thomas made the same comment we would make. 2 “ I do not know the way, how do I know the way?” Come on now, tell me that we can’t or don’t know the way. After all we have been taught, and all that we have read in our past, that we truly have no clue as to where Jesus went and where we are going?              
Scripture tells us that Jesus Christ, the First Born of life, the Only Begotten Son of God (Jehovah), the Creator of all we see and all we can’t see, the Only One who can redeem us, and the Only One who knows the ROAD we all must travel on is the One who can get us home. Why is it we have difficulties in seeking His GPS rather than man’s maps? Could it be we fall into the same existence that we have read about in Paul’s journeys? 3 “For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with the inscription, `TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ What therefore you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you.”               
God’s Positive Solution is found in His Word, He had established it all many eons prior to our existence and even wrote it to us in His Love letter that He left us. 4 “The God who made the world and all things in it.” Now, if He was the One who MADE the whole world and all things in it, is it too difficult for Him to show us the way? I think not! God established a path for each of us to walk on, in the way of getting back to Him, He not only made the path, He also sent His guides to help us along the way. A good book to read that kind of draws a video of this is Hind Feet In Heavenly Places. Or maybe Pilgrims Progress another good book to read. However, do not give more attention to these books as they are fictitious and spend much needed time in the Book that He wrote to us.              
It is only through His guidance that we might make it back to Him and His Kingdom. WE can not make it there on another’s coat tail or apron strings. It is all up to us to make it on our own merit by turning to Christ Jesus and repenting of our own wickedness and sinful natures. What is sin anyway? Sin is basically [disobedience to the Word of God] Governments may come out and make sinful things legal, but that does not supersede what God established so long ago. Remember, it is Only the God of the universe and of all creation that can redeem us from this doomed planet and life. It is Him and Him alone that can pull us up out of the miry clay and set our feet on THE ROCK.  
Lord, I come to You right now asking that You show me Your GPS, Your destination For me, the correct path that You would Have for me to walk, the direction Set for me. Guide me along the beaten Trail that I might return to You and abide In You for evermore.   I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ
1 John 14:4 ;   2 14:5;  3 Acts 17:23;  4 Acts 17:24

06/01/2019: WHO AM I?

Many people come to clergy and ask, What is my purpose? Very few ask the important question: WHO AM I? Why is this so important over the question of what’s my purpose? Before anybody can have or discover their purpose they have to come into understanding of who they are. Surely, many will say, “I am a good person, or I am a hard worker. Some will contest that they are great parents, or grandparents, or even children. But is that who they truly ARE? No! Emphatically the answer is NO; that is not who they are, that is who they tend to be, but not are.  
Moses said to Jehovah: “Whom should I say sent me when they ask?” What was God’s answer? “TELL THEM THAT `I AM SENT YOU’” God calls His name `I AM’ and that was enough to stir up the Hebrew peoples at the time. `I AM’ is two words put together with a long reaching meaning behind them. First of all the `I’ means; ME, or one person in the first person vernacular, the identifier of the person sending the message. It tells the receiver that someone they KNOW is speaking or relating a message. `I’ can be the perfect identifier to let people know they can trust the message. In order for Jehovah to use that term He knew that the Hebrew people KNEW HIM and they would be ready to receive word from Him.  
Secondly, the `AM’ is also a complete identifier as the one and only entity needed. It also means present time, not I `was’ or I `will be’ but I `AM’.  So, in Moses’ dilemma as to who should I say sent me, God was saying: “Tell the people that the One and Only person whom you know presently have sent this man Moses to bring you out of bondage.”  
I have heard it said often times before that I as mere man should never make the statement, `I AM’ because it is the Identifier of Jehovah God and His Name. However, I find myself identifying myself with the `I AM’ all the time, have you ever made the statement that “I am in Christ and He is in Me?” Well, you did identify yourself as in God by quoting `I AM’. So, what am I saying, we identify with Him when we identify ourselves as He did Himself. So, who are you? Really, who are you and with whom do you identify?  
One of my favorite sayings of old is: I AM THE I AM THAT I AM AT THE TIME THAT YOU NEED ME TO BE THAT I AM IS THAT I AM THAT I AM.  
This is the message that I got out of God’s `I AM’. Now as to who you are, ask yourself this one Question? Am I in Christ? Seek the answer, never be afraid of it, if you are not, then you can be, if you are, then your question has been answered as to WHO AM I? You are HIS!!!!!!!!  
You are an alien, a pilgrim passing through this plain only once; there is no re-incarnation, no life on this planet after you cease to exist, you are done, now the question remains, where will you go? If you are His in Him, and He in you, you will see Him in His Fathers Kingdom, but if not, He will say “Depart from me you doer of iniquity.”


WOW! Great questions. What is it, and how do we get it? In order to answer these questions we need to see what God has to say about it. What does discern mean anyway? It means to be perceptive, to be able to judge whether truth or false. Have you ever sat in a meeting of some kind, yeah even a church service and asked yourself if what is being said is true or not? Do you look around you and maybe question someone’s ideas, actions, or words? Can you spot a false teaching or preaching when it comes in to your hearing? If you answered NO to these questions than you do not have discernment. Why is this one thing so important?               When we moved to Fort Worth, Texas we began to search for a church group where we could call home while we were there. One of the places we went to seemed to be alright and moving in the right direction, except there seemed to be an comfortability for me that I could not put my finger on at the time. Praise and Worship was great, people seemed to be friendly, supportive and warming to visitors. The Preacher got up and talked a little bit and we didn’t sense anything strange at that moment, at least nothing we could pin point as wrong, but I still had an aching inside my spirit that something was out of sync but still could not figure out what it was.              
My wife leaned over and whispered in my ear that the male pastor had a male wife and children. At that time the pastor said that they had a member of their church who was moving to Colorado and he asked her to sing a worship song; the woman got on the stage and she asked the pastor if her husband could sing with her, the pastor said sure bring her on up; did you notice what I typed here? At this time another woman came to the stage and we left.              
I said all that to identify the “discernment” in our situation. That achy, inside stomach quivering, unnerving feeling that you get when something doesn’t strike you as right. The message beating the back side of your brain, telling you to pay attention, the gnawing of your teeth that seems to irritate your spidery senses. Be careful, watch for signs, or red flags that make you feel uncomfortable. Some people call it intuition, gut wrenching, nerve rattling, and sometimes butterflies.   1 CORINTHIANS 12:31 But earnestly desire the greater gifts. And I show you a still more excellent way.              
In 1 Corinthians 12 we  read some of the many gifts that are given to us by the Holy Spirit, however the gift of discernment is not listed there. Do not mis-interpret this, God has gifts that are available to us if we seek them. Scripture tells us that God will give to us in plenty if we just believe and ask. I said in the onset of this writing that discernment weighs out the truth and the lies, it reveals truths and deceptions; it also identifies like believers, even when we don’t know them. There have been several times that I was out and about when I spotted someone whom I never knew nor ever met and I shouted out to them some kind of word about the Lord and they responded in kind to me. It happens.              
One day as I was headed home from Kansas City I was rerouted by the guidance of the Lord to pass through Platte City, as I was on the off ramp and at the lights there I saw a man and a woman offering to work for food. OH I wasn’t planning on picking them up, I didn’t have much money on me or in my bank to do anything for them. OH yeah, to add to it I was on my way to Weston to see a graduation ceremony of one of our pastors daughters. I slipped right by the couple and headed down through Platte city, I turned onto the road that would have taken me to Weston and it was there that the Holy Spirit spoke loudly and clearly to me; I took the message as I was to go and pick this couple up.              
I immediately turned around and went back and picked them up. I told them I didn’t have much but what I did have I would share with them. I proceeded to take them to McDonalds in Platte and I bought them something to eat, as we were sitting there a stranger came to our table and asked me if he could talk with the couple. I told him it was alright by me and he proceeded to tell them about Jesus Christ and His love for them. Mind you now, I had never seen this man before nor since, he handed them a booklet and then he was gone. Actually before he left I stood up and we embraced and I told him I would see him again in heaven and he agreed and said it would be a date.              
Did you see the discernment in play there? This man saw us and he was told by the Holy Ghost to come over and assist me in reaching this couple. This is how God works, and how discernment is applied. Earnestly desire the greater gifts. Could this be on of those greater gifts, I say YES!   2 TIMOTHY 4:2 Preach the word; be ready in season and out Of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great Patience and instruction.              
Let not our simple minds and words leave us speechless when God opens a door to reach someone in our presence. Speak the word to those who will listen, and to those who choose to not listen, you might just reach them with the seed. Trust God to fulfill the rest. After all it is He and He alone who saves.    
Lord, Father I ask in the Name of Your Son Jesus Christ, Yahweh, Yeshua Christos To direct me in my path and to help me To discern that I might not be deceived In the ways of man. Let the Words of My mouth and the meditation of my Heart be acceptable to You O Lord, That in the days I see coming I may Be able to stand.
I ask this in the Name Of Jesus AMEN  

05/01/2019: A STUDY IN ROMANS

Romans 1              
Paul identified himself in verse 1 as a BOND SERVANT, not as a preacher, teacher or any other title that would have elevated him above whomever he was going to talk to or write to. Paul understood that in following Christ Jesus there is no distinction between followers, that titles are man made and can separate one from another. By identifying as a bond servant Paul was telling them and us that he had been redeemed at a price, and that he knew it.              
When we look at the history of Paul we see that this is a 100% complete change over for him. Remember how Paul aka Saul went about persecuting followers of Christ? Saul was a strict upholder of the Laws or Moses. He stood to enforce the Torah (books of the law). Saul was intelligent, trained, and dedicated to the church (Temple Priests). If they felt threatened they would call on him to protect them. Now, here he is, in a different light, a different mind set.              
Paul also identified himself as an apostle, set apart, for the Gospel of God.   GALATIANS 1:15&16   15 But when He who had set me apart, even from my Mothers womb, and called me through His Grace, Was pleased 16 to reveal His Son in me, that I Might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not Immediately consult with flesh and blood,              
Now, we know that Saul, on the road to Damascus, had an encounter with the Risen Christ and that he went to the house of Judas {Acts 9:11}  where he was met by Ananias, who was sent by God to heal Saul’s eyes. Then God sent Saul by way of the Holy Spirit into the wilderness for the span of 3 years to be taught by God Himself. Imagine, getting taught by the Mouth of Almighty God, the One called the Wisdom of the Ages, the Most Holy One. It was there in the wilderness that God changed his name from Saul to Paul.              
Notice in Galatians Paul writes that when it PLEASED GOD He revealed Christ IN Paul. Why did God want Saul to go to the wilderness first before meeting up with other Apostles and Disciples? God knows the hearts of man, and how man is evil from birth, and that man can and will twist God’s Word for their own benefit. So, the Wise One wanted to teach Saul Himself so that there would be no confusion as to what God wants him to do. Then when the three years were up God directed Paul to Jerusalem to meet up with Cephas.              
In verse 2 Paul writes, that in continuation of verse one, that God had PROMISED the revelation of His Son in the holy scriptures before hand. Meaning that long before Saul was born God established this revelation, and not only for Saul, but for any and all who call upon the Name of Christ Jesus with their WHOLE HEART! Have you done this yet? Perhaps you might have slipped away from the relationship you had with the Lord and need to return to that relationship, return to your FIRST LOVE! If that is the case;  
Heavenly Father I come asking that You have mercy on me, And redeem me back into Your Loving Arms and Family. I ask that You might Reveal Your Son IN ME just like You Did with Saul/Paul. Speak to me Your Plan for my life that I not wander astray.
I ask all of this in the Name of Your Only Begotten Son

04/15/2019: SHEKINAH GLORY

What is the ìShekinah Glory?î The term Shekinah is not found in scripture but after much searching I came across as good as a definition as I could find. Shekinah =†he caused to dwell. We read in the Exodus that God revealed Himself in a CLOUD BY DAY, AND A FIRE BY NIGHT.
Now, when we speak of a cloud, in the Bible we find cloud mentioned many times and one of the words that describe a cloud is the word ìananî which means: ìcloud; fog; storm cloud; smoke.î Anan is used especially of the ìcloud of massî that evidenced the special presence of God. (1 Kings 8:10-11)
† 1 Kings 8:10 And it came about when the priests came From the holy place, that the cloud filled The house of the Lord, 11 So that the priests could not stand to minister Because of the cloud, for the Glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord.
† For those of you who have trouble standing during church services picture being in the place where the Shekinah Glory sets down. To be in that moment is life changing to say the least. It is then and only then that you can sense the Presence of the Lord in a mighty way. I speak from having experienced His presence in the glory cloud,, not just once but twice.
† EXODUS 13:21 And the Lord was going before them in a pillar of cloud By day to lead them on the way, and in a pillar of fire By night to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night.
† EXODUS 20:21 So the people stood at a distance, while Moses approached the thick cloud where God was.
† Now, we have seen in the Old Testament where God was in the cloud and this is what we attest to as the Shekinah Glory, so, with this in mind letís look at the New Testament and what it says there about the cloud and Godís presence and the significance of the cloud.
† MARK 9:7 Then a cloud formed, overshadowing them, And a voice came out of the cloud, ìThis is My beloved Son, listen to Him.î
† MARK 13:26 And then they will see the SON OF MAN COMING IN CLOUDS with great power and glory.
† ACTS 1:9 And after He had said these things, He was lifted up while they were looking On, and a cloud received Him out of Their sight.
† PRAY THIS PRAYER Lord, I pray that one day You might show Your Shekinah Glory in the midst of my life. I Pray that I might draw nearer to You that I might know You more intimately. Grant You Favor to me in this one thing.
I Pray this in the Name of Jesus Christ AMEN!

04/01/2019: What Will You Suffer For?

There are many prisoners serving time in the prisons of this world claiming that they are innocent of all charges. We have seen recently several that have been released from confinement due to further studies of each case proving that they were in fact innocent. Was it because of shoddy police work, false witnesses, or some other reason; we may never know for certain, but if we do wrong we must stand before a panel of our peers and be judged by them. If we disobey laws that have been set before us should we not be punished for the wrongs we did?      
1 Peter 3:17 For it is better, if God should will it so, That you suffer for doing right rather Than for doing wrong.               
Every decision we make in life has either a reward or a consequence before it, whatever choice we make we will be held accountable for that choice. You say, “I would rather not choose!” You have already made a choice. I have often been asked what is the age that we are to be held accountable? It is my belief and understanding that it is the AGE that we know right from wrong. If we are taught to not steal, and we steal, should we not suffer some kind of retribution for the crime? If we kill some one are we not accountable for that death?  
1 Peter 3:13 And who is there to harm you If you prove zealous for what Is good?              
I have to ask myself often if I am truly zealous for what is good. Do I stand out among the world as different, you know, like A MAN CALLED NORMAN! Do I stray, or more like RUN AWAY, from doing what is wrong all the time, or do I happen to seem like all the rest of society? What does it really mean to be zealous for good? I think the best example of this would be Saul of Tarsus, and his conversion to Paul the Apostle. While he was  

03/15/2019: The Vote Is Yours

 I wonder today in light of the events that have taken place in America of late, how would the elections go if Americans were to elect the type of God that they themselves would want. Here today the GOP wants a CONSERVATIVE GOD, while on the other side of the street the DNC would like to have a LIBERAL GOD. So, let’s just take a look at the different agendas.              
On the one side we have the BORN AGAIN BELIEVERS, and on the other side we have the UNGODLY BELIEVERS. We have seen over the past several generations how this comes out, and how it rarely benefits the people. It seems that politicians get paid to argue and hate one another just so they can keep their own agenda and paychecks going. Me thinks that a deeper research into the actual study is called for, don’t you? So, let’s break it down, OK? What shall we call the two opposing factions? How about, BOOMER & CLYDE?   BOOMER are those who seek to follow the ways of the Bible and Jesus Christ, they believe in what God established from the beginning and what Jesus taught when He was on the earth. Wholesomeness, Purity, Truth, Forgiveness and so on; while CLYDE has little or nothing to do with all of that stuff he might call nonsense. Now, let’s break it down:  
BOOMERS:                                      CLYDES:
Love                                                    Hate Joy                                                                      
Misery Peace                                     War Patience                                                             
Impatient Kindness                         Rudeness Goodness                                                           
Badness Faithfulness                       Unfaithful Gentleness                                                          
Irritable Self-control                        Out of whack Order                                                                   
Anarchy Decency                              Indecency                                   
Now let me interject here some other key points to this election process and what one side believes in. On the Clydes agenda we find that their hidden program consists of: Immorality, Impurity (doing what is not natural), Sensuality (if it feels good do it, when not with the one you love, love the one you’re with.), Idolatry (worship little gods), Sorcery (magic, voodoo etc.), Enmities (hostility, opposition), Strife (dispute, selfish ambition), Jealousy, Outbursts of anger, Disputes, Dissensions (causing separation), Factions (challenging others), Envying, Drunkenness, Carousing (fornication, adultery etc.), And things like these.                   
So, my friends the vote is up to YOU! One promises Eternal Life and the other promises eternal damnation and destruction, and not to forget, the SECOND DEATH spoken of in Revelations 2:11; 20:6 & 14; 21:8  
LORD, I want to be a BOOMER and not a CLYDE; I so desire to know You and draw nearer to You In the hopes of Eternal Life. For me there can be No other as my Ruling Authority than You. So, I am asking that You accept my vote in Your Favor, For Your Favor. Lord, be my Lord I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ The Only Begotten Son of God
