Let us Riot and Steal - We Deserve your Goods !

In the last few days the people have spoken their minds. Across America people have marched with their little signs venting their wrath against the white police demanding they stand back and ignore the crime they are participating in, or observing.

Note; it is the white officers who are bearing the brunt of their disdain.

They fully support the doctrine of the most Holy Rev. Al Sharpton which in its final analyses is nothing more than "Hater of all white people."

Many of the black churches (and some white) have followed his lead and feign praying for more lawlessness.

It is time for someone to stand up for the white officers that are being crucified for doing what they are sent (by the legislator) out to do.

America (the protestors) have spoken and what they say is they want to allow law breakers to have their way.

One might ask who in the masses was decrying the hammer murder of Zemir Begic.

No that didn’t fit their insolence for the white officers.

Where was the condemnation of the law breakers by the clergy?

It is time for the white police to rethink their responsibility to those they serve and retreat anytime there is the possibility of an escalated  confrontation with a law breaker should he offer any kind of resistance.

Then only make a report thereby not offending the marchers across this land.

Al Sharpton for Attorney General? ?

The Old are a Problem ?

Here Today - Gone Tomorrow

When Johnny comes marching home again, hurrah, hurrah! So went the song during WW1.

Then comes WW2 and again we waited for the troops to come home. When they did; couples were married, kids were born, and the G.I. Bill educated many thousands.

The result of this according to Rand Paul is too many old people living off of too few young people today.

This is not a problem for the U.S. alone. China has seen the light where the limit of one child per family has put them in the same situation of too many old living off of the young.

The politicians' conundrum is how do we change the culture to where we can get rid of all the old people (except us) and still save face?

While they put the mask on their face of concern, for the older generation the truth is it is an annoyance they wish would go away.

The best solution seems to be to exterminate them in some acceptable fashion.

With all the denials aside the first step is assisted death. It isn't suicide it is murder incorporated.

Today it is by choice of the soon to be departed. Tomorrow it will be choice by the amply rewarded physician who is appointed by the government to do the dirty deeds much like the executioners in the prisons.

All that is lacking is a change in perception of what the life span should be.

Of course it will have to be made legal and the Living Constitution will provide the legal means for doing so.

When over the years the P R has done it's job (much like assisted suicide movement has done) this will be acceptable to a hard pressed younger generation.

For YOU - - It will be here today and gone tomorrow.

"Scriptural Declarations for Israel and the Middle East"

It is imperative that we stand with God, and stand with the Jewish people in this hour. Not only does Scripture provide Clear Demarcations and Declarations regarding Israel and His plan for salvation which I outline below, it also shows us how we are to respond in Proclamation, Praise and Prayer! Join me for such a time as this in calling forth God's purposes for the Jewish people around the world!

The Bible is our foundation for life, revealing the very nature of God Himself, and how we should then live in relationship with Him in light of these absolutes. The people of Israel are God's chosen people, through which He foretold, demonstrated and then extended His plan for the salvation of all mankind through Jesus Christ. Let's look to Scripture as our roadmap for end-time events related to Israel and the Middle East, and accept the invitation God has extended for us to partner with Him as watchmen on the walls for the days in which we live!

The Miraculous Birth of a Nation

The Scriptures foretell a regional dispersion of the Jewish people followed by a regional regathering. In detail, the prophetic Scriptures predict a second worldwide scattering followed by a second worldwide regathering. We have these Scriptures being fulfilled in our lifetime!

1. Isaiah 43:5-6 "Do not fear, for I am with you; I will bring your offspring from the east, and gather you from the west. I will say to the north, 'Give them up!' And to the south, 'Do not hold them back.' Bring My sons from afar and My daughters from the ends of the earth."

2. Isaiah 11:11-12 "Then it will happen on that day that the Lord will again recover the second time with His hand the remnant of His people, who will remain, from Assyria, Egypt, Pathros, Cush, Elam, Shinar, Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. And He will lift up a standard for the nations and assemble the banished ones of Israel, and will gather the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth." (Photo via James Goll)

On May 14, 1948, the nation of Israel was reborn out of a time of tremendous persecution, and out of the ashes of the horrific holocaust of WWII. But ultimately, God's redemptive plan and purposes prevailed. The enemy of God and His redemptive purposes for the Jewish people and all the peoples of the earth, are under attack again. Satan and his lying demons are stirring evil men's hearts to "wipe Israel off the face of the earth and let she be remembered no more" (Psalm 83). But we must take a stand and be God's friends and Israel's friends in this tumultuous hour.

Seven Clear Scriptural Demarcations and Declarations

1. The Only Reliable Source: The Scriptures, God's distinct prophetic words, provide the only reliable source of light upon the current situation in the Middle East.

2. The Ultimate Destiny: God has determined the ultimate destiny of both Israel and the Church in eternity on the basis of His foreknowledge. Its outworking in time is guaranteed by the irrevocable covenants which God has made with each of them. God will perform His very own Word!

3. Dependency Upon God's Grace: For all good that God has promised to Israel and the Church, both are equally and totally dependent upon God's grace which can be appropriated by faith. We are saved by grace through faith!

4. Tests and Pressures Lie Ahead: Tremendous tests and pressures lie ahead for both Israel and the Church, but those who faithfully endure will be privileged to share God's Kingdom with Him throughout all eternity.

5. Acknowledging our Spiritual Inheritance: Authentic Christian Believers from gentile backgrounds owe their Spiritual inheritance to the God of Israel. One appropriate way to acknowledge their gratitude is to stand by Israel and to uphold them with fervent intercession.

6. The Future of the Middle East: The people of the Middle East will never know true justice and lasting peace until they are submitted to God's ruler – the Lord Jesus Christ. This is true for every nation, all mankind, every ethnic background, every individual person, and every people group of the earth.

7. God's Plan of Salvation: There is only one way to salvation and it is by placing faith in the atoning work of the cross of God's only son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life and no one comes to the Father except by believing in Christ Jesus!
Lessons From Our Bible - A Jewish Book

"I believe the Bible is the best gift God has given to man. All the good Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book."

The Bible is essentially a record of God's plan for salvation of mankind highlighting Israel's history, written by Israelites, partly in the form of history and partly in the form of prophecy.

1. Old Testament Authorship: Jewish authors wrote all 39 Books of the Old Testament. (Of course, this is the human agency we are acknowledging, as we believe God inspires all Scripture directly.) (Photo via James Goll)

2. The Messiah's Background: Jesus was born a Jew, died a Jew and will return as a Jew.

3. Location of Gospel Accounts: All the events of the Gospels (except the flight to Egypt) take place in the land of Israel.

4. The People of the Gospels: Over 90% of the People portrayed in the Gospels are Israelites.

5. New Testament Authorship: Every one of the 27 books of the New Testament has Jewish authorship. (Luke might be considered as a possible exception, but he was a proselyte to Judaism.)

6. The Establishing of the Early Apostolic Church: The main instruments for establishing the early apostolic churches and spreading the Gospel of the Kingdom were Jewish.

7. Background of the Disciples: All 12 apostles chosen by Jesus were Jewish.

8. The Condition of the Future City of God: The future city of God, the New Jerusalem, as recorded in the Book of Revelation is inscribed with the names of the 12 tribes of Judah.

9. Characteristics of the Foundation: Its foundations carry the names of the 12 apostles of Jesus.

Statements by Early American Fathers: Emphasizing their Reliance on the Word of God

The statements below, and many others like them, reinforce the inspiration, authority and the necessity of relying upon and building within the constructs of the Bible. They also give us a warning of consequences that could occur when we as a people or any governing society err from the absolutes in the Word of God.

Abraham Lincoln: "I believe the Bible is the best gift God has given to man. All the good Savior gave to the world was communicated through this Book."

Daniel Webster: "If there is anything in my thoughts or style to commend, the credit is due to my parents for instilling in me an early love of the Scriptures. If we abide by the principles taught in the Bible, our country will go on prospering, but if we and our posterity neglect its instructions and authority, no man can tell how sudden a catastrophe may overwhelm us and bury all our glory in profound obscurity.

Our Significant Scriptural Response

1. Proclaim – Jeremiah 31:10: Hear the word of the LORD, O nations, and declare in the coast-lands afar off, And say, "He who scattered Israel will gather him and keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock."

2. Praise – Psalm 8:2: "From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength because of Your adversaries, to make the enemy and the revengeful cease." (Photo via James Goll)

3. Pray – Jeremiah 31:7: For thus says the LORD, "Sing aloud with gladness for Jacob, and shout among the chief of the nations; Proclaim, give praise and say, 'O LORD, save Your people, the remnant of Israel.'"

Our Prophetic Posture in Prayer

We are called to stand in the gap as Believers in the Messiah and pray and take a stand for the God of Israel and the nation of Israel. God is raising up a corporate Esther for such a time as this. Will you join me in proclaiming, praising and praying, "He who scattered Israel will gather him and keep him as a shepherd keeps his flock"? And declare, 'O LORD, save Your people, the remnant of Israel.'" Amen and Amen!

Blessings to You as Watchmen on the Walls!

Don't Forget Your Keys! Guest Laura Gagnon

Don't Forget Your Keys! Guest Laura Gagnon



In reading Matthew 16:18-19 today, something stood out to me that I thought I would share.
Jesus was having a conversation with Peter, after Peter had the revelation that Jesus was the Christ, and declared that he was the Son of the Living God.
Jesus turned to Peter and said, “And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven; whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Jesus was saying that He would build the church upon the same revelation that Peter had; Jesus was the Son of the Living God. But, then He went on to tell Peter that the gates of Hades, or Hell, would NOT prevail against the church. That’s us.
Jesus wanted Peter to understand that He was giving His disciples the keys to the kingdom of heaven. Whatever they forbid on earth would be duly noted by heavenly administrators of justice and those statues would be carried out in the earthly realm.
Likewise, whatever they permitted on earth would also be loosed from heaven and the answers sent back to the earthly realm.

There is a similar scripture in Isaiah 22:20-23. “The key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder: so he shall open, and no one shall shut. And he shall shut, and no one will open. I will fasten him as a peg in a secure place, and he will become a glorious throne to his father’s house.”

The steward had the key that gave him an audience with the king. This idea is affirmed again in Revelation 3:7. Jesus Christ, the holy one who is called Faithful and True, had the key of David because He was the rightful son of David (see Matthew 1:1). The ‘key’ holds the entrance into the door of the New Jerusalem as it’s called, or the kingdom of heaven. It was Jesus’ prerogative as the rightful owner of the keys to give them to whomever He wished, and He gave them to His disciples.
That is what He was trying to explain to Peter, and it’s what He keeps hoping WE will understand today. Friend, YOU HAVE THE KEYS TO HEAVEN. You have the keys to the church (that’s you!). YOU have the keys to lock the enemy out of your house. You have the keys to lock the gates and secure the doors to make sure that Satan’s plans are shut down. Get up and go get your keys!

The enemy has no rights unless we allow him to have them. Stop complaining, stop blaming others, and stop feeling helpless. The enemy doesn’t have the keys anymore, remember? You do! Simply remember that God has given you authority and use the keys He gave you! You have the authority to lock the door! You have the authority to forbid the thief, the oppressor and the murderer from taking from you and your family. You also have the authority to ask for angelic assistance to bring you the things you loose from heaven.

Another very interesting thing I took note of is found wedged between “The Offended Brother” in Matthew 18:15-17 and verses 19 & 20 that mention prayers of agreement. It’s tucked in between as if it is all part of the same conversation.
I asked the Lord, “Lord, was it part of the same conversation or something You said at another time?” “Why was it written in my Bible as if it was all part of the same dialogue? Are You trying to tell us that we even have authority on earth to bind up offenses and just forbid them from happening?” That intrigued me.


Perhaps we won’t know for sure until we just start forbidding offenses from occurring and loosing God’s grace, humility and understanding. Personally, I believe God will honor the prayer of faith. What if we all started praying that just as a little experiment?
Do you wonder what effect it could have? Start with where you have been given authority and influence: your family, your workplace, pray it over your church, neighborhood and increase your prayers into ever-widening targeted areas. Pray for no offenses in your city.
Bind up that spirit of misunderstanding, offense and anger. Loose the graciousness of God to touch the ears of those that hear. Ask Him to remove the filters off the ears of others that would cause them to hear something that wasn’t intended. Pray that people will hear without taking in offense. That will have a ripple effect that reaches far and wide.

One thing I do know is that Jesus was obviously reaffirming the concept of the transfer of authority to His disciples because He repeated what He said to Peter.  Vs. 18: “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” AUTHORITY TO RULE. The question is, are YOU using it?
It’s already done. Whatever problem or issue that is coming against you, your loved ones, or even in our cities or our nation...if it’s not permitted in heaven, then it should not be permitted on earth. If it is permitted in heaven, then it can be loosed as an answer to come and invade earth. In the kingdom of heaven, the answers have already been determined.
All we need to do is to call it out of heaven and tell the right thing to manifest in the earthly realm. By faith, we call those things we can’t see and tell them to exist. When our faith agrees with what has already been determined in heaven, God can then release the answer to our prayers.
In the mere twinkle of an eye, what didn’t exist before, suddenly just is. We say YES, Lord to Your will, Your plans and purposes coming forth. Let it be done on earth as it is in heaven. Amen

Calling a Spade a Spade

Call a Spade - - A Spade


I have a word from the Lord for YOU. 

God says this: "Call a Spade a Spade." 

If you need the meaning it is this - - "Call SIN - - Sin.  

Call a HABIT a habit, Call an ADDICTION an addiction." 

If you do not know Jesus as your Savior, it is time to receive Him into your Life.  Confess your sins and ask Jesus into your life.

You do know that when a person accepts Jesus into their heart, the Bible says they ARE a NEW Creature and OLD things are past away and all is become NEW. 

Reminder we are NOT Sinners saved by Grace - -
Yes we WERE a sinner but now we are saved by Grace.

Not a Fun Place

While there may be overcrowding in the jails and penitentiaries we have been assured that Hades has been enlarged to accommodate each and every one sent there.

In today’s world there are multitudes of people who are endeavoring to make sure they have earned the right to suffer eternally.

Among the many entertainers, we find those who make (or try to) cause us to laugh.

One can safely say that the greater part of them; are indeed going to Hades.

They constantly use vulgar language and deliberately use God’s name in vain even though God has declared that He will not hold them blameless for doing so. Exodus 20:7.

There are millions who bow down and worship those whose sexual orientation is contrary to God’s original intent because they make them laugh.

Comedians use God’s name as if it was a bad word and try to provoke people to laugh in the process. They value a laugh far above the name of God.

As they laugh their way to Hades they welcome everyone to join them in the use of God’s name in the same way.

In the legal sense being present with someone during the committal of a crime is the same as committing the crime itself.

The next time you feel the urge to listen to someone using the name of God just to be amused then get ready to laugh your way to Hades along with them.

Plan to walk away, or use the off button on your remote.  It is not funny and not worth a laugh.

The Massacre of the Innocents

PP says they don't want to waste the Baby's Body Parts

I stand ninety eight percent against abortion. Not one hundred percent for there are cases where common sense should prevail.
It grieves my spirit to be forced to pay Planned Parenthood for what I consider to an act of brutality by people without conscience or compassion.
One has to go back to world war two to find women committing mass murder with such savagery. The Bitch of Buchenwald, Ilse Koch started a sisterhood of sadistic behavior which is carried on today under the guise of aiding research.
Let’s examine Ilse’s "Ends justifies the means."  She carefully selected Jews with tattoos to make her lampshades, book covers and gloves. The argument was she found a use for the skin and didn’t let it go to waste.  
Not only are the bestial abortionists enriching themselves through their vile murderous so called procedures but they have almost all of the Democratic party supporting them to the tune of a half billion dollars a year. The old media expression; “Murder Incorporated“ finds new meaning in the Congressional halls of infamy.  
Several members of Congress from California voted to continue this slaughter namely the two women senators and present minority house leader Nancy Pelosi.
Most of the Democrats in the house also voted against cutting off the half billion dollars free funds for the slaughter house.
This brings us one step closer to the "Soylent Green" Era.

A HARD DAYS DAY a true story


If you can picture a family that they themselves wouldn't call poor (they had some pride) but the word "poorly" might fit the bill.

Then you would be envisioning the folks I am mentioning; five girls in the mix, three in their teens, and two under ten. These girls were far out in the country with no money except what very little they could talk their father out of and he didn't have much to start with.  

I suppose if they had been more industrious they could have come up with a way of making some money like sewing quilts or raising chickens to sell eggs but they didn't.

About the only instance they could earn any money was when cotton picking time came. This was something anyone could do even little kids like me who was around five years old.

As it always happens when it is time to pick cotton it is also the hottest time of the year, and if the humidity gets up very high it is almost like trying to breathe water.

You show up a little after daylight, and get your sack that you are going to drag throughout the day. It will get heavier and heavier until it gets full enough to weigh. You didn't want to turn in a half sack due to the extra time it takes for the weighing and book keeping.

So the drudgery went on, picking for a penny a pound. Since the ground was poor and didn't produce a good crop - - the picking was that much harder to get your hundred pounds you hoped for.

Soon the sun begins to bear down and the dust and sweat gets into every crevice where your clothing touched the skin and the chafing causes the skin to be irritated producing pain. The only hope for relief is when the skin numbs out to where the pain is tolerable.

 It is a long way by foot to the river and after a hard days work you settle for just washing up with a wash rag.

After some food, what is on your mind is the next days work and another dollar you will have to spend for dresses and shoes.

In society, there is a line drawn where the women above that line wore things like slips and underwear but our cotton pickers lived below that line and didn't often have money for those luxuries.

On this particular day it was as described as above and one of the girls doubled with pain. This excruciating pain was centered down on the right side and nothing would help ease it. It was several miles to the hospital and walking was out of the question.

There were one or two cars in the local area that ran part of the time and after three hours they were able to get some transportation. The ride itself was almost too much to bear for the dirt roads were filled with potholes and when ran over it would send a shot of pain throughout the whole body.

An hour later the search for a doctor began for he wasn't in his office and another hour was lost while the pain continued.  When the doctor examined the girl it was get her to the hospital now, both he and she raced to the operating room and he cut the burst appendix out. Though it was touch and go she recovered with a nasty scar as a reminder of the misfortunate happening.

What does a poor country farm family do when you have an unexpected bill for an operation and doctor bill presented to you?

You sell one of your milk cows and it will take a year to recover from this, but it is something you are forced to do because you pay your bills and you just do it.

As you think about the why of this situation and conclude "It was just a hard day’s day."

This is a true story about my Aunt Minnie Hazel.

Minimum Wage

I won't be able to afford the fast food restaurant
Soon to be: 15.00 dollars minimum wage an hour nationwide and workers unionized.
This will be phased in by increments so as to make it seem like it is a minor increase.  Of course this is only the beginning with additional increases spurred by each new union demand.  Reminds one of the old theory to only cut off the dog’s tail off an inch at a time so it won’t hurt so much.

$60.00 dollars an evening for babysitting seems reasonable for an evening out. Of course you could pay less and go to jail for breaking the law. Once this is on the books there will be no going back.

Fixed income retires will have to suck it up and learn to do without. They no longer will be able to hire someone to do the menial task they can’t do for themselves. The poor and homeless will not be able to survive on gathering cans and bottles to sustain themselves, and will be singing the number one song hit (Woe is me).

Every employed worker will have to have an increase in wages to cover the forty percent increase in minimum wage. As wages spiral, the government will be the biggest winners with more tax monies in the coffers.  

More great ideas are on the way like assisted suicide for all seniors needing medical care to solve the short coming in the social security/Medicare dilemma.

Nothing ??
“Nothing:” A word that is impossible for even the most intellectual among us to comprehend. The dictionaries define it as relating to something.

No thing; not anything; naught: something that is nonexistent. In no respect or degree; not at all: Something that has no existence.

Our minds cannot think of nothing without relating it to something therefore we end up with the necessity of there being something.

Those who eliminate GOD from the issue of creation have to start with something and fail to explain from whence the something originated from.

This is an issue atheists must deal with in order to feign intelligence honesty or just ignore the whole subject.

On the other hand the Christian is satisfied with the knowledge that the ETERNAL GOD IS THE CREATOR

GOD is and was without a beginning or ending. The characterization of GOD being eternal is easily understood by looking at something without beginning or end such as a circle.

The true circle has no beginning or end. 

Much of our civilization, both past and present are betting their eternity on something that came out of nothing without a Creator GOD.

The Holy Scriptures advise against this and foretell a divine judgment upon those who pursue this path.

The strong words; Galatians 6:7 Don't be misled--you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.

Those who deceive themselves will face an angry GOD and pay a high price for their willful disobedience. 

Creation out of nothingness, or by our ETERNAL GOD.

US Supreme Court 2015

Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.” (Romans 1:22-25, ESV)

Much of the Supreme Court’s latest decision and its effects are encapsulated in the above scriptures.  The rejection of GOD and his word by five of the Justices is a result of the deification of themselves as our gods.

Two men and three women are now the gods of many Americans. They are being worshipped and praised for acting on personal bias and for the benefit of friends they capitulated to. One especially stands out for being influenced by personal friends of a certain sexual orientation.

This is the second day of infamy in the history of America; (The first being the attack on Pearl Harbor) and the resulting damage to the constitution is unforgivable.

The President’s declaration “America is not a Christian nation (meaning it is unchristian) has been ratified by the highest court who voted to declare “GOD AND HIS WORDS ARE  IRRELEVANT”. 

Chief Justice Roberts wrote.  "Do not celebrate the Constitution. It had nothing to do with it.”

Fervent Prayer Avails Much
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man (or woman) avails much.

The family unit is greatly strengthened by each member holding up the others in prayer.
Proactive praying is designed to keep the family strong. Its purpose is preventive and sustaining.
Preventive in that praying that wisdom will prevail in each member’s decision making and sustaining when things occur beyond their control.

The patriarch and matriarch should lead the way in this matter. 
There is an enemy who tries to work within the family creating discord and thereby weakening the unit as a whole.
When members cease to care for one another problems multiply and chaos is the result. If there is discord within your family the phrase found in scripture “men and brethren, what shall we do?” should become the watch words. This question begs the answer it is time for harmony to prevail.

If there are problems within the family are you the problem or the problem solver. One of the sticky points and is at the root of many family problems is that not all members are created equal.
Some are not as sound in judgment as the others are and as such require more prayer and forbearance to sustain them (does someone come to mind? If so then you know who needs extra prayer).

Romans 15:15 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.

In scripture we see time after time examples where the principles set forth by GOD pertaining to the family unit are cast aside. This spiritual failure is the cause of the unit being weak and ineffectual for GOD’S service. 

Certain personality quirks create voids in the family unit and members can’t stand each other what then?

It is time to muster up all the love within you and continue to pray for the individual. This is one of the more difficult things you will do, but it retains the family spiritually.

You will find it is harder to continue to have hard feelings toward the one you are praying for even when they don’t seem to respond.

Lamentations 3:40
Let us examine our ways and test them, and (if necessary) let us return to the LORD.

CHANGE and - - -

Chasing the Wind regarding Change

The theme for the last couple of years has been “Change.”   

The only problem with that is no one seems to know what that means.

To the president, change means a neo-socialistic agenda whereby the redistribution of wealth (formerly known as your money) is given to all. Take it from those who have and give it to those who have not.  

A pseudo cloning system where men are free but have no freedoms.

Ken Mehlman, President Bush's campaign manager in 2004 and a former chairman of the Republican National Committee, has told family and associates that he is gay. This man and many well known public figures are, ”Coming out” and proudly saying I am a homosexual. 

I don’t find this objectionable for I would rather have them out in the open than hidden behind a veil of deception.

I don’t know who the authority figure was who established the opposing sides on this argument on being gay or heterosexual for that is not the real issue. The issue is those who are spiritually alive and those who are spiritually dead.  

The artificial same gender sex doesn’t enter into the main argument which is whether or not you are a born again believer in JESUS CHRIST.   Same gender sex is just a manifestation of spiritual death, this is a condition validated by the affirmation of being gay.   

Having sex or not having sex doesn’t add to or take away from the spiritual death condition.
The thing that both the gays and non gays have in common is both will suffer the same loss of eternal life. 

GOD has a formulated program, right and wrong, truth and falsehood, spiritual life and death, and marriage (a one flesh relationship) is between and a man and a woman.  While politicians may be coerced into passing a law making same sex marriage legal, they can’t justify this action before GOD. The genesis story is so clear no further discussion is needed here.   

Some come out by their words while others come out by their actions in either case it is rejection of GOD’S grace and will not be ignored.

All sin is a repudiation of GOD’S rule upon this earth and man’s rejection of GOD’S supreme power.  

While men try to cloud the issue by spouting meaningless rhetoric, when the issue comes full circle (as it must) it is always a matter of spiritual life or death, GOD says choose life and avoid the judgment.  
Ask Jesus to come Live in Your Heart
He will Give You Eternal Life

The wild Hollywood Bunch Rides Again

Montel Williams Ranting
The Hollywood lynch mobs have saddled up and have their ropes in hand. The hangman (Montel Williams) is leading the way. The Duggers are the worst humans on the earth according to the witness against them …

Just one of  Montel Williams tweets  ‎@Montel_Williams 
Sorry, Josh Duggar is a bigot, slimebag. The whole family is, and FRC is a scam. Yup, Gay people are the danger to kids?  NOPE, JOSH DUGGAR IS!

There you have it, Montel has spoken and he is the champion for all of the homosexual community.
His position is; it is all right for so called gays to have multiple partners and flaunt their promiscuity before the world. The thing Montel left out of his rant was his personal sexual history.
Who did he take advantage of in his early life??? Time for Montel to “fess up” and let us in on all of his secret doings.

Seems what he excels at is dumping his wives and getting another one (three so far).

Quotes from his children;
His children say his public persona doesn't jibe with their personal pain - and they are asking that Williams either take an active role in their lives or let their mom make all the decisions.

Even though they live only 40 miles apart, Williams has seen his son only three times in the past 2 1/2 years.

Wyntergrace (daughter) has seen him four times in five years and their last meeting - a therapy session in September - was a disaster.

"He walked in already mad. He said he thought we were going to dinner, but my e-mail clearly said we were going to see my therapist," she said.

"It was intimidating. I was thinking why should I talk if I'm just going to get yelled at?'"

Perhaps it’s time for him to spend a little more time on his own kids and less on someone else’s and their problems of ten years ago.

The Risk Factor

Taking a Risk and crossing the “Fear” line


My wife has been reading an e-book: “The Risk Factor” by Kevin and Chad Dedmon (father and son authors) forward by Pastor Bill Johnson and Missionary Heidi Baker.

Dedmon, Kevin; Dedmon, Chad (2011-12-20). The Risk Factor: Crossing the Chicken Line Into Your Supernatural Destiny. Kindle Edition.

Their exciting testimonies encourage Christians to believe the Bible when Jesus said:

Mark 16:17-18b And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18b  they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Side note:  Redding, California, Bethel Church has become a place where many people are healed of cancer and a variety of other health problems after receiving prayer.  Jesus is the healer and he still heals today !!

What God does in Redding California - - He can do anywhere and with you when you take a RISK to step out and pray for those in need.

Often we hesitate to reach out because of FEAR - what will people think of me?  Remember they thought Jesus was out of his mind too! And the 120 were accused of being foolishly drunk !

According to Second Corinthians 10: 5, we need to learn how to take every thought captive under the obedience of Christ, because the spirit of unbelief can speak in the form of our personal thoughts.

For example, the thought could sound something like this, What if this doesn’t work, or what if this person doesn’t get healed when I pray? These thoughts arise from the fear that we will fail if we try and also from the fear of people.

Our part is where the risk comes in – We take the risk in boldness to cross the fear line - - and leave the result up to God.

Fill Your Place

Reverend Chappell was a Kind Man of God
Pastor Chappell was a large man somewhere between austere and country. He was use to ministering to the people of Oklahoma South and since some of our congregation had migrated from the south they wished to have him come to be the pastor of our church. 

There were certain characteristics that defined him; one being he had a very loud voice.  I don’t mean just loud, I mean extremely loud, one that would hurt your ears. When he saw the microphone he said, "I won’t need that," and he was right.  

Such a kind man was he, and I liked him a lot. Due to the fact he preached to rural people who worked late on the farm, church always started after dark he was use to not starting to preach until later in the evening.
Our church on the other hand started at six on Sunday evenings with what we called an Evangelistic service. He just couldn’t get comfortable preaching the evening service while it was still light.
He once told me that something had to change because we were working against GOD by not waiting until “dark thirty” to preach.  

This became a problem and some contention arose because by getting out of church by 8 there was time for the members to go out and fellowship or have people over for refreshments especially the young people.  

The pastor was gracious but about a year of “working against” GOD was all he could take and he resigned and moved to Arizona to minister to the American Indians.  

As it turned out it was best both for him and the church, even though he was a good man he was in the wrong place.   

1 Corinthians 12:14-16   For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. And if the ear says, “Because I am not an eye, I am not a part of the body,” If they were all one member, where would the body be?”  

It is important for both the church and you for you to find your place in the body of Christ because it is there you will be most successful.  

There have been times when my wife and I have had to fill in because someone had failed to take their place in the body. We were glad to do it but we were just a fill in.  

Romans 12:6-8  So in Christ  We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully 

No one can replace you for God has given your place, your job, your responsibility in the body of Christ. If you neglect to fulfill your calling the cause of Christ will suffer.  

Realize this; You are very important in the kingdom of GOD.
