I fear no evil because “Even though I walk through the [sunless] valley of the shadow of death [a valley of deep darkness]… You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me. – Psalm 23:4
Ever wonder just how much God and His angels watch over you. Well, the Bible says Jesus watches over you very carefully.
What do you do with the sins of your past? Paul says, I am continually, consciousely, purposely forgetting all those things of my past, what is behind me. I leave them back there, behind me. And now — I press on.
PIC: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950. Life is full of choices. You know? (Sometimes you don’t have a choice – like this only road over the Andes: Peruvian Andean road circa 1950.) We want the best choice – every time, right? We make a choice, choosing one over another – in order to have the […]
We are surely in a wild and confusing age. The world seems to be caught-up in a whirlwind of evil, totally out of control. But the reality is: God Himself is the real controller.
It really IS quite plain to see: this world and all of us creatures – could not possibly ever have come to be – without an intelligent designer, God, making us. Don’t be such a doofus!
The main point of the Bible is that God came down to earth as Jesus – to be our God and Savior. Jesus, while on earth, was absolutely God-man.
Have you ever in your life “approached” God? God has spoken into this world through His Word, the Bible. We know God by reading/studying… the Bible. In it He informed us about Himself, long ago, and now, today, He informs us as we read it — that He is approachable. He is the One (in three: the divine Trinity). All other “gods” are not His equal, nor truly any “God”.
PIC by JandamPhotography: Waiting expectantly for your Master Jesus is returning to earth soon. Believe it? Are you ready to meet your Maker? Are you truly following Jesus, waiting expectantly for Savior Jesus – Master of the Universe? He wants to take us all to His Home, Heaven. It behooves us who are following Him […]
…when “it” does not make me happy. There sure is a lot of “unhappy” out there these days! Wow. Lots of folk out there raging and rioting and looting and killing willy-nilly. I don’t go that far afield. But I do get unhappy at times. I can always find something to make me unhappy. Never […]
Scenario: God Almighty “interviews” Don Lemon. Scene One: Don Lemon is kneeling before the Judge of All. Here’s the imaginary dialog on That Day of Judgement.
God made a book. A list of names. Is your name written in The Book of the Living? 33 But the Lord said to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against Me, I will blot him out of My book…. – Verse 33 of Exodus 32:32-33; Also see: Psalm 69:28 See Bible references here: The Book of Life […]
For those of us who have a heart 100% given-over to Jesus – it is natural to “fear” God, in the sense of: we have a heart full of “awe-filled reverence”. We are full of respect for God, and thus we lift up His name in awe – through song, prayer, and conversation (“spoke to […]
Jesus is inviting you to come into His Kingdom. Forever! Imagine how exotic and opulent – His Place? Is that exciting – or what!? I’m looking for that! Have you visited Jesus, like the rich young ruler, and blindly held-on to your ways in the midst of all your religiosities? It is a fearful thing to consider being rejected by a damning God. How far would you go to NOT be God-damned?
“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And the expanse [of heaven] is declaring the work of His hands.” – Psalm 19

I think. You think. We all think. But, what does God think? Thinking is necessary. But what if your “think” is not God’s “think”? Then your “think” will end so very badly when you reach That Day of Judgement, quivering before God in the realization that it is His Think that rules the heavens, not yours. Read about God’s “think”. What you think – matters. How you act it out – matters more. It will seal your eternity – with Him, or without Him.
Have you ever traced back your God to the origins of your faith? Have you tried to learn more about the founder of your faith… who he is, what was his life like? Are you okay with the origins of your faith? What does your religion do for you? Does your religion satisfy you? Do […]
The truths of Scripture, the life of Christ, the discoveries of science – all should combine to lift us heavenward. Yet we remain strangely anxious. Our days are swamped by the mundane; our nights are swallowed by insomnia. Seldom do we know true restedness. Yet God would tell us, “Be still before me; wait patiently. Trust in me, and I will give you rest.”
I am a Christian because… the Bible is too good to have been a fabrication of man. It had to have been orchestrated – by God. I am a Christian because… of tangible evidence of the divinity of Christ. He fulfilled over 360 prophecies written about the coming Messiah – way too many to have been completed by chance. Christ was God in human form. I am a Christian because…
Seven “I am” statements of Jesus where He made it clear He claimed to be God – and Savior of all sinners who repent.

…a series on Jesus – with excerpts from each article [expanded and republished from March 7, 2017] What will you do with Jesus? …Jesus the Messiah sent by God Who is this Jesus? As creations by God on earth, it behooves us to read, hear, and heed what God Himself has revealed to us as […]
The God who put together the Bible – has unmitigated force and strength, love, mercy and grace, holiness and justice. It will never work to tell God, “Lighten up!” Nothing mitigates this God. Absolutely nothing will ever soften, mollify or “fix” Him. Because? Because He is perfect and complete in everything that He is. The wonder of it all is that God wants us, sinners, to be with Him in His Kingdom.
Most people believe there is a God. What about you? Who is your god? Is He truly the God of the Universe? Or, have you just sort of ended-up with this made-up creation of yours that you call “my God”? Or maybe you’ve allowed some other people to sort of lure you into their version of god? If I end up following some “god” of my own making – how stupid will that be in the end when I am face to face with the One who is really God?
The God of the Bible is loving, and gives thought aforehand about all consequences of His actions. He knows what’s up before it happens, so nothing He does is “reckless”. God is not careless, hasty, impetuous, nor unwise. It’s not in His nature….”
Quoting a bumper sticker: “Know God, know peace. No God, no peace.” Isaiah the prophet spoke to the Lord, “You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you” – Isaiah 26:3 Modern English Version (MEV) Same verse in another version: “You will keep in […]
What do we miss out on? What do we miss — because we do not take the time to understand what God has for us …in the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16)? It is all laid-out for us so we can understand Him better. How much do we not understand about God’s power in us and around us? Live daily with the expectation that the hand of God is upon you.
Our God reveals Himself in the Bible to be extreme to the nth degree. He is many many things, but lets just look at His love and His holiness. It is only Jesus that was the perfect sacrifice to take our place of condemnation. He is calling you to accept Him.
I look at an orchid, a rose, the tropical fish, lush jungles and forests, men, women and children and I say, “Oh my God such beauty can only be from You. It is good what you have done. I look at the skies and the stars and the universes beyond….
