30 AD – 70 AD: “The Crimson Thread Remained Crimson”

Fascinating message from Adam at Pursuing Truth. Quote, In about 30 AD, Jesus said something to the scribes, Pharisees, and people of Jerusalem which must have been earth-shattering to His audience at the time: “See! Your house is left to you desolate” (Matthew 23:38).  This mirrors what happened in the days of Jeremiah: “I have […]

The Promise of His Coming

“God will invade. But I wonder whether people who ask God to interfere openly and directly in our world quite realize what it will be like when He does. When that happens, it is the end of the world. When the author walks on to the stage the play is over. “God is going to […]

The Holiness of God – R.C. Sproul

Some years ago I was blessed to hear this after my friend and sister in the Lord, Helen, loaned me the CD. Over the last 34 years I’ve heard a number of sermons preached on the topic of God’s Holiness, but this one stirred me like no other. If time permits I pray you will […]

“O Little Besieged Bethlehem “

From Ramone, at Weeping Jeremiahs O little town of Bethlehem We sing of thee tonight We give gifts to each other but We care not for your plight Far away from our comforts Your people live in fears Their lands taken and walled within No one to wipe their tears O little besieged Bethlehem Your […]

You Cannot Be Christian and Support Torture

Thanks to Steve for directing me to this post: I agree with the author (Brian Zahnd). You cannot be Christian and support torture. I want to be utterly explicit on this point. There is no possibility of compromise. The support of torture is off the table for a Christian. I suppose you can be some […]

Judgment is coming

Excellent post at Mike Ratliff’s blog tonight. Hope you will take time to read it folks. When our Lord returns, and we know that He will because He said He would, it will not be as it was at His incarnation. He came as a suffering servant, being born as humble child to a common family. […]

The Scepter Shall Not Depart From Judah UNTIL…

Adam has posted a wonderful teaching at Pursuing Truth Blog. Quote, Sometimes a whole lot of meaning is packed into one word. This is the case with the word “until,” where it appears in Genesis 49 in one of the earliest prophecies in Scripture. Jacob, later named “Israel” (Genesis 49:2), was the grandson of Abraham, […]


Every few years I find myself posting this clip. I never tire of listening to it. It was back in 1981 the first time I heard it played at our local Christian radio station. I can remember keeping the radio station tuned to that specific station all day, trying to ‘catch’ this when it was […]

The Substance is come and the Shadow has gone; and we do not remember it

“Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice for ever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my […]

This is wonderful encouraging news. Praise God for what the Holy Spirit is doing among Muslims Missiologist Dave Garrison documents global surge in Muslims leading Muslims to Christ. He calls it, “Unprecedented.”  After traveling 250,000 miles through Dar al-Islam (“House of Islam”) as Muslims call their world, career missiologist David Garrison came to a startling […]

The Passion of Jesus: So that we can be accepted

The Book of Isaiah, written around 700 years before the coming of Jesus Christ, is quoted more times in the New Testament than any other book of the Hebrew Scriptures. Why? Because Isaiah 53 so explicitly refers to the Lord Jesus it doesn’t need much by way of explanation. Indeed it became so obvious that […]

‘Homeless Jesus’ Sculpture Sparks Controversy

This is interesting. Not just the sculpture itself, but the varied reactions it’s generating. What’s your reaction?  From The Huffington Post In a small college town 20 miles north of Charlotte, N.C., “Homeless Jesus” is provoking more conversation than a month of Sunday sermons. The life-size sculpture depicting a figure asleep under a blanket on […]

Seeing Others as God Sees Them…

We know that Jesus was so full of the love of God that He allowed Himself to be given for the needs of the very ones who opposed Him. When people walked by His cross and reviled Him, wagging their heads and gambling for His garments, the only thing that came out of His mouth […]

Unbelieving Israel – Victim or rebel?

Powerful message from Peter Cohen at Messianic Good News The Sunday Times published an editorial (17 June 2007) by the Chief Rabbi of South Africa, Warren Goldstein, entitled, “Look again: Israel is the victim, not the root of all evil” (reposted here at The Jewish Federation of Pinellas Fl.). In the sub-title to his article Goldstein […]

Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus

Daily Encouragement is an online ministry I subscribed to some time ago; the word today especially lifted my spirit. Monday afternoons, 4pm to be exact, are hard for me, for this is the one day and time each week I get to visit a loved one in jail. The visits are short, each visit is […]

Who is the Israel of God in Galatians 6:16?

As we previously looked at the topic ‘Who is Israel’ earlier, I thought this teaching from John at Aletheuo might be of interest to someone. quote, 1 ”I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that […]

Allow Jesus The Last Word

This short message came today from Walking in Truth Ministry and I could not help but think about all disgruntled and angry Christians who have spent the last five years complaining about our President. Many of them, as has been evident by some of the posts I’ve put up, have allowed their anger and dissatisfaction […]

O’ What a Savior

Heard this tonight on PBS’s Gospel Classics program. It was the first time I’d heard it in a long time and it sure brought back some wonderful memories of the Saturday night singings we had many years ago. This is posted in loving memory of all the brothers and sisters in Christ who taught me […]

The Church Will Prevail…

False prophets will continue marching by the thousand’s upon the Church, false doctrines will be taught from many a pulpit every week, doom and gloom speakers will continue to forecast the end of the Church, and phony pretenders will continue to infiltrate…but folks, the Church which Jesus bought and paid for with his own blood, […]

The Lion is on His Way

I do recall this and thought it was interesting too, In September of last year the president of a large nation stood before all the nations gathered in the assembly hall of the United Nations in New York City. He spoke about peace and understanding, but in his speech he also proclaimed that Jesus was […]

Wonderful Peace

The past few days this old hymn has been on my mind. I even found myself humming the tune throughout the day.  “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world gives, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid” – (John […]

Good Bible lesson at Soul Refuge There is a great passage of scripture which is found in the New Testament book of Acts that is very clear, regarding the prophecy from Isaiah 53, as it pertains to Jesus Christ.
