I go to prepare a place for you…

“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. John 14:1-3 I don’t know what it looks like there. In heaven. We can’t know for sure, although there are glimpses into heaven in the Bible. Innumerable crowds around the throne, emerald rainbow, creatures with wings and faces and many “mansions”. I… Keep reading…

God has not abandoned you.

God has not abandoned you

“They that know thy name will put their trust in thee:  for thou, Lord, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.”  Psalm 9:10 KJV The word “forsaken” in Psalm 9:10 is from עָזַב  – the Hebrew word “azaz” –  which is a verb that could have also been translated left, abandoned or neglected. The people of God are NOT abandoned by God! They are NOT forsaken or left alone or neglected!  However, this verse does not say that that those who seek Him always get what they want. God is not Santa Claus. Sometimes He delays the answer to our prayers. He might not… Keep reading…

Never Once Did I Ever Walk Alone

never once

I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20 “When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.” Psalm 27:10 “For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 8:38, 39 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9… Keep reading…

Keep yourselves from IDOLS

keep  yourselves from idols

I John 5:21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen. This morning, I was informed that a church not very far from here is enticing parents and children into their “service” (if it can be called a *service* since such idolatry certainly does not *serve* God or *serve* to advance His Kingdom). And by what means does this religious gathering entice the unaware? By promising that the most current cartoon characters – the stars of the latest Disney movie – will be present for photographs to be taken. To say I was appalled is an understatement. This is nothing more than… Keep reading…

I Surrender All

This thing is from Me

A question was posed to me the other day.  It had to do with my dreams, hopes and ambitions. It has really caused me to think about where I am in my life, and not just because of my age, or the “season” of my life. I have been watching many people in Facebook-land being urged to push themselves harder and harder and spend their days and evenings in a cause to create more wealth. This frenzy is semi-disguised in other positive phrases, but that’s what it amounts to in my eyes. In days gone by, if the same circumstances… Keep reading…
