Mirror Reflections

Unplugged from the news, the nasty noise of blame, I am well placed, with ears to hear what the Spirit is singing.  The sweet symphony of a gentle breeze rustling through the trees beckons my consideration of Who blows this unseen wind?   The world is quick to finger point at science, to cast a…

Read and Learn

How to read the Bible and learn what God wants you to assimilate. Matthew Chapter 12:3-7 “Haven’t you read?” Jesus asked the Pharisees who were there to challenge the Author of every scripture. “If you had known what these words mean…” To suggest that the scribes and Pharisees had not read a portion of scripture…

Habakkuk

This is the prophet who asked questions and got answers!  Just like many people today, this bewildered man could not reconcile his faith in a righteous God with the troubling things he personally witnessed 700 years before Jesus. Living by faith is a challenge for all of us. The prophet Habakkuk articulates humanities frustration with…

Two Witnesses

The word “witnesses” is found 51 times in the New International Version of the Bible. The Hebrew Word for Witness is Ed and the Hebrew people conventionally use ED to describe the witness as the one who gives evidence or testimony of things or of people.

Poetic Justice

We must keep our eyes wide open and NOT be blinded by what we see. Not all signs and wonders are from God. We are to be diligent in our seeking of the Lord and with the discernment we are given by the Holy Spirit we are to KEEP WATCH!  “I will have mercy on…

1st 2nd 3rd JOHN

The living and active Word of God Almighty says that we are recognized by how we love and pray for our enemies. Let us not edge out God by allowing our EGO to hinder our duty to love one another unconditionally, just as He loves us all. “Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and…

1st and 2nd PETER

Peter is the rugged fisherman who gives us hope. As he matured in faith, we marveled at his courage to walk out to Jesus on water, then shortly afterwards we heard him deny Jesus three times.  Peter is the same man who confessed boldly; “You are the Messiah, the Christ”. By God’s immeasurable grace, Peter…
