Have Your Lanterns Lit

“Rolling thunder, streaks of lightning, darkness falling over the land of the living. Wars, pestilence, factions of terror and doom. He who is the Mighty One shall appear in the heavens to call home the righteous. Those who fall by the way side will have no second chance. For they have fallen in the spell of the evil one. Their lives lived for waste.

Warring factions in the sky, warriors with swords drawn, fight for renewal of the kingdom for One shall win, the other lose.

Take heed children of God for the time is near. Take up your swords as the army of God for you are His soldiers. March to the tune of His amazing grace for He sees your deeds. Forgive those who do you wrong. Repent for your ill deeds.

He who rules the heavens and earth is coming in a blink of an eye. Have…

Your Smile for the Day

A couple had two little boys, ages eight and ten, who were excessively mischievous. The two were always getting into trouble and their parents could be confident that if any mischief occurred in their town, their two young sons were involved in some capacity. The parents were at their wit’s end as to what to do about their sons’ behavior.

The parents had heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children in the past, so they contacted him, and he agreed to give it his best shot. He asked to see the boys individually, so the eight-year-old was sent to meet with him first. The clergyman sat the boy down and asked him sternly, “Where is God?”

The boy made no response, so the clergyman repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?”

Again the boy made no attempt to answer, so the clergyman raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face, “WHERE IS GOD?”

At that, the boy bolted from the room, ran directly home, and slammed himself in his closet. His older brother followed him into the closet and said, “What happened?”

The younger brother replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time. God is missing and they think we did it!”

The hustle and bustle of Christmas.  Presents, decorations – food and family. Don’t forget Christmas carols and all the festivities at your churches!

This Christmas, JESUS is asking you a question:

Will you help one who belongs to Him, who is in dire circumstances?  I am not trying to make anyone feel guilty.  But I am attempting to have the readers go before the Lord and ask Him what they should do.

On November 29th, a brother in Christ, Anthony LeMasters, was doing yard work. He lives with his mother in W. VA. An explosion occurred, ignited by a can of gasoline.  Anthony was on fire – all of him. He ran in a panic. He remembers that a still small voice said to him:  Stop, Drop and Roll.  And he did. But he had already sustained 2nd degree burns over 80% of his body. The doctors said that if he…

“No, no, no!”

That tone of reprimand rang a bell for some reason. Behind me in the check-out line, a young mother wrested something from her toddler’s tight grip.

“No, no, no!” she repeated. The little boy had grabbed a ball point pen from a display rack near the cash register. Having swiftly removed the cap, he was about to demonstrate his unique brand of artwork across a stack of Washington Posts. He clenched his little fist when his mother tried to take the pen. What child doesn’t like to draw?

I drew constantly as a child. Pens and pencils were my implements of choice and when I could sneak it away I’d use my oldest sister’s fountain pen until it emptied. She always wondered why her ink ran out so quickly and unless she reads this it will remain a decades-old secret. Of course I had a…

How Isaiah 42 Relates to the Modern Day United States and the World

Inspirational Christian Blogs

isaiah-42-relevant-todays-world

Isaiah 42 is an interesting chapter, written to the Jews as well as addressing Christ as Messiah, there are definitely parallels to today’s modern world. Isaiah 42:1-4

As well as addressing the shortcomings of the Jewish people of that time, the text also mentions that Christ will be a light to the Gentiles. Isaiah 42:6

Isaiah 42:19 makes mention of the Lord’s own servants being blind, this of course referring to the Jews; is it any wonder that a large portion of the rest of the world is blind as well? This blindness does not apply only to those that have no association with God, but also to many of those who profess to know the Lord, especially in this day and age.

Isaiah 42:13 is an express warning to those willing to listen. The God of all Creation will have the last word, in fact He IS the last…
