This is not an article on the “Last Days,” but it is a post with the intent on drawing our attention to the bizarre flip-flop of good vs bad behaviors in our American culture today. Have you noticed? Have you seen “good” deeds outlawed while “bad” behavior is rewarded? Individual citizens are arrested for having a Bible study in their home while the current administration gets away with … “Fast & Furious” (Border agent Brian Terry slain by FBI weapon in Mexican hands), SEAL Team6 (that targeted Osama Bin Laden) 30 of 38 members of that team are now dead, and “Benghazi-gate” which resulted in 4 dead Americans and unknown numbers of survivors that have disappeared. There are other evidences, but the point is clear.

But this isn’t about politics or even President Obama. It is about…

God's word trumps man's opinion

Lately, I have seen a number of people trying to explain away things that have happened they don’t understand the reason for.  I have heard several use excuses if this or that had not happened maybe this one or that one may never have come to God.  Are we “seers” now or just “guessers”?

When did God ask me to explain the problems of this world…or you either for that matter!  There is one place I recall where men came together at another friends house.  This friend had lost everything near and dear to his heart!  He was a wonderful man, dearly loved of the Lord and blameless in His sight!  When the friends came to visit they began to try to “explain” all the trouble.  They began to give different scenarios.  They began to talk about how great God was and how God would not have done these…

The Bullying of Independence

I try not to find conspiracies everywhere but I am sure that some will say that this post is promoting one. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. This post is about a power hungry government gone awry. A government that is more interested in exerting control over the people it is supposed to represent. It is not about right or left, it is about power and control.

The young man in this video below killed himself because he was under tremendous pressure from the government. He was a fighter and supposedly suffered from depression. I am not excusing his actions,  I am saying the the bullying tactics used by the government played a part in his death.

We have seen many instances of government bullying recently, it is becoming the favored tactic to silence people, to  push the agenda of those in power and to profit the favored and bankrupt the unfavored. Ask yourself if you have read anywhere lately of someone being bullied by the government and search your heart. Is this what we want from our government?

Giglio, the Inauguration, and Same-Sex Marriage

Giglio, the Inauguration, and Same-Sex Marriage.

We have seen what is happening in many European countries where faith is being pushed into the backroom and the faithful are being silenced with mockery or actual prosecution for hate crimes. This is not how our country was founded, it was founded upon the tenets of  religious liberty. And yet those that protest the so called discrimination, are the very ones that are doing the discrimination. Those who protest hate speech are the ones spewing some of  the most vile speech that there is. If we do not stand and speak the word of God loudly and clearly, we are the losers. What others think is not our responsibility. Not stepping on the feelings of those that would play the victim is not our responsibility. Our responsibility is to follow what our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ laid out for us and if we shy away from doing it here on earth, we have nothing to stand upon when Jesus returns. Our home is not here, our treasure is not here, our lives here are simply to do His will and spread His word. God bless!


Oh Glorious Day

Do we deserve the sacrifice that Jesus made for us? No, nothing we have done or ever can do will justify that sacrifice. And yet He gave it for us! Oh just to have the faith of the woman who touched the robe of our Lord.

Casting Crowns – Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)

Lyrics:

One day when Heaven was filled with His praises
One day when sin was as black as could be
Jesus came forth to be born of a Virgin
Dwelt among men, my example is He

Word became flesh and the light shined among us
His glory revealed

Living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day

One day they led Him up Calvary‘s mountain
One day they nailed Him to die on a tree
Suffering anguish, despised and rejected
Bearing our sins, my Redeemer is He

Hands that healed nations, stretched out on a tree
And took the nails for me

‘Cause living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day

One day the grave could conceal Him no longer
One day the stone rolled away from the door
Then He arose, over death He had conquered
Now He’s ascended, my Lord evermore

Death could not hold Him
The grave could not keep Him from rising again

Living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day
Glorious day

One day the trumpet will sound for His coming
One day the skies with His glories will shine
Wonderful day, my beloved one bringing
My Savior Jesus is mine

Living He loved me, dying He saved me
And buried He carried my sins far away
Rising He justified freely forever
One day He’s coming, oh, glorious day, oh, glorious day
Glorious day, oh, glorious day
