  1. Messiah And The Serpent. What's The Relationship? Num 21:6; John 3:14

    SYMBOLISM IN THE “SERPENT” (Num 21:6; John 3:14) When we read about “The Serpent” in the Torah/Bible, we are reminded of Satan. “The Devil is the Serpent.” 99% of the time, it DOES symbolize “HaSatan.” But what about the other 1%. If it isn’t HaSatan, then, who can it be? Are you thinking about Messiah? Really? Seriously? Well, let’s see. We read in the Torah when the people of Israel sinned and complained, that Adonai sent “fiery serpents” to bite the people. Some...
  2. The Divine Time Traveller Comedy.

    So like 400 years from now, the study of eschatology will be denounced as a Heresy because of Acts 1:6-8, being ruled as a fleshly interest not leading to any real edification or unification of the church. The time spent on figuring out how it all ends is spent on building the kingdom through people's lives instead and the kingdom of God flourishes. Pretty funny those things time travellers say.
  3. Hosea Style Prophecies

    Hosea was a prophet who was asked to marry a prostitute to illustrate how God's union with Israel has been progressing over the years. Sometimes the way our lives progress can be a Hosea like prophecy. In my life I notice that I continue to seek the answers for questions related to the faith like a newborn Christian. I find an answer, and am not satisfied and keep seeking. Each answer becomes a question to live in that makes a good point. In a likewise fashion, there are many...

  5. Journal Entry - Deuteronomy 1:26-32

    Deut. 1:26-32 1:26 "Notwithstanding ye would not go up, but rebelled against the commandment of the LORD your God:" The Israelites rebelled against God's commandment to go into the land and fight because of their fears; they feared other men rather than fearing God. It is easy to say that I wouldn't have rebelled if I were put in the same situation, but when I reflect upon my daily life, I rebel against God's commandments everyday, and the underlying reason is the same: fear of men instead...
  6. Genesis 50:22-26

    . ● Gen 50:22-26 . . So Joseph and his father's household remained in Egypt. Joseph lived one hundred and ten years. Joseph lived to see children of the third generation of Ephraim: the children of Machir, son of Manasseh, were likewise born upon Joseph's knees. . . . At length, Joseph said to his kin: I am about to die. God will surely take notice of you and bring you up from this land to the land that He promised on oath to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. So Joseph made the children of...
  7. Through Enough

    Through enough? Soul, are you through enough? Trying to figure it all out in the rough? Sure it’s tough; by the scruff you feel taken by the wind! But what is that? The Spirit’s touch! Pay attention to the glimpse! Heart that’s worn, of confidence shorn, shall find Heaven’s strength, Jesus! We have been wounded on many sides, Your wounds make us take all ours in stride. True, you know our frames are dust, But, Father God, You embrace our hearts! We are through enough. Jesus, how to...
  8. Experiencing The Word: Understanding Is The Key!

    Experiencing the word is the key to ruling our world. This much has been established. However what we need to find out now is how to experience the word, and this is what we will focus on from henceforth in this series! How do we get to that point that we shout like Jeremiah, " thy words were found and I did eat them and thy word became the joy and the rejoicing of my heart"? This will be our pursuit for the rest of this series; finding the word that changes our world. We will be looking at...
  9. "answering The Actual Questions Of Spiritual Seekers" Blog Post

    Decades ago i ran across a book that covered the Charismatic movement in the Lutheran Church. As an ex-Lutheran it was of interest to me. The books lasting value was putting a finger on a problem I've seen and experienced all too many times. Too many times pastors and other people respond to textbook problems of people of the past rather than trying to hear what the person in front of them is trying to say. Welcome Holy Spirit describes a young missionary that describes it well. I'll give...
  10. Dealing With The Crisis In The Church

    Dealing with the crisis in the Church “In her voyage across the ocean of this world, the Church is like a great ship being pounded by the waves of life’s different stresses. Our duty is not to abandon ship but to keep her on her course.” St. Boniface’s There is no way to try to tone down the scandal that people are dealing with in the Catholic Church today. Many just leave, I think that is a mistake. Others who stay in the church are trying to find out how to regain some trust in their...
  11. Genesis 50:10-21

    . ● Gen 50:10 . .When they came to Gorena ha-Atad, which is beyond the Jordan, they held there a very great and solemn lamentation; and he observed a mourning period of seven days for his father. A geographic location described as "beyond the Jordan" suggests the east side of the river but the term is ambiguous and can just as easily mean west (e.g. Deut 3:18-20). The Hebrew word for Gorena is goren (go'-ren) which identifies smooth places; e.g. threshing floors or any cleared space like a...
  12. Mega Feet

    ...after pondering verse 10 of the Lord's Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13) Our Father's will Done outside these walls By inhabitants Who really have no home.* Theirs is flattened down To build a better kind, Mighty bricks of trust,** Transparent to this world's eye.+ With such vision we see God As He really is; The world grasps authentic Life, of the Church its witnesses.++ Mega feet walking forth, No boasting when are washed,^ Stage presence is the Lord,^^ Projected at His cost.^^^ __________ *...
  13. Self Deception

    The entire Bible, from Eve through Noah's day, Sodom, the people who escaped Egypt and so on... all was about self, and the scriptures throughout show the failings of mankind based on self. Jesus and the Father continually made it very clear that self was not the will of God. God punished, laid down laws and even sent the Messiah to show the example of how selflessness was the key to salvation and of living in harmony. Jesus for example rejected the temptation of self in the desert and went...
  14. Hate Is The Very Breath Of Hell

    Hate is the very breath of hell September 12—Holy Hour. “Don’t you think that if you were to spend this entire hour of adoration repeating the words, ‘Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven,’ you would not be wasting your time? For My will is all love. It is out of love that you ask Me for it, and when the sum of all the love on earth is greater than the sum of hate, that will be a step forward. Hate is not from heaven. Hate is the very breath of hell. Bossis, Gabrielle. He and I...
  15. Genesis 50:4-9

    . ● Gen 50:4a . . and when the mourning period was over, Joseph spoke to Pharaoh's court It's curious that Joseph didn't meet with Pharaoh in person; I mean, after all, Joseph was second in command over the entire country of Egypt, and certainly outranked all of Pharaoh's courtiers. It's guessed by some that in the Egypt of Joseph's day, a dead man's close kin were deemed unfit to approach a Pharaoh. Whether it was for religious reasons, or just simply customary propriety is unknown. ● Gen...
