Killing fields


norway killer

21 years for killing 77 people, ” I wished I’d killed more”, he says.

This morning I wake up to the headline of a developing story of. ” 3 dead including gunman in New Jersey” . Then there’s the Empire State Building killings, more shootings in Pennsylvania, Temple killings in Wisconsin, Colorado killings and this guy above.  Even a shooting at the Christian organization, Family Research Council. What’s up? Wholesale slaughter is ramping up. It doesn’t SEEM to be, it IS. Gun control won’t stop it. Continue reading

Is the BIG ONE coming to the Midwest?


earthquake crack

“Seriously, I can’t get in the door, Emily”

Now what? We’re starting to see an increase of deep earthquakes as indicated with the 7.3 by El Salvador this morning. Then followed up with a nice shaking in the San Diego area, giving a rattling start of the week on the east Pacific Rim. Apparently the El Salvador quake stirred up a very minor 3 1/2 in wave that hit the coast. When looking up deep earth quakes I’m reassured that, though strong in magnitude, they won’t impact the surface very much. That makes me really warm and fuzzy all over given that in 1922 deep earthquakes were “impossible” until someone discovered they actually happen. What if one of these things hits under a major fault? The TV mini series “10.5” captured the notion of deep quakes in such a campy way that it created a, “ya, right” mentality. Continue reading

Hey, It Wasn’t Eve’s Fault!


adam and eve

I was reading a nice blog entry about ” The Man Zone” by Pastor James that goes into more to being a man than machismo, I appreciated that. I know that there is a certain amount of machismo in the job description but it doesn’t mean beating down every man who looks at your wife. There is a bit of machismo in everything that a man is required to do, it just isn’t recognized as such. These days Academia is preoccupied with feminizing boys instead of instilling right responsibilities. A good read on the subject is “Killing Adam” by Maya Emmett.

The Bible is pretty clear on a man’s responsibility, but sorry guys, it doesn’t mean you’re the big, bad, boss. Actually, you are a woman’s nurturer, provider, protector, shield, spiritual head, confidant, emotional support, wall. No, your job isn’t to be the recipient of everything a woman can give. Sorry to disillusion ya. Continue reading

Prepare Now to Reap


sickle

The following word came in addition to “Prepare Now to Reap”

Amen Glynda,

The stones are set, the battlements are ready, He is ready to unleash His anger. He is almost finished putting His faithful in their assigned places. He is calling His faithful out from the man-made church into His presence. Those who have not listened will suffer, will pay the consequence for their putting off of His commands. But, those who have remained, who have endured must not be haughty, let there be no arrogance, you have been placed specifically to minister, not to hide but to minister boldly to the lost, AND the shirkers. He has called His faithful to serve Him and obey, and this will be the further testing.

There will be no cries of ” but we followed and they didn’t”. You may have to snatch them from the fire, He wants to know you have forsaken your most primitive feelings to follow Him.

Follow in love, follow in forgiveness, follow in obedience. These things the Lord demands.

Blessings,

Dan

He became Sin


godsfingers:

Jesus was God in man so that He could redeem man. Jesus was born into sin by a woman born in sin so that He could know our sin and redeem us from our sin. He died, as man, and rose victorious, in glory and soon comes back to claim us, who are in Him. Praise God!

Originally posted on Footsteps In The Deep:

This morning, as I was praying, I had 2 Corinthians 5:21 come to my mind.  I spent the next hour and a half talking with God simply about that one verse alone.  It truly is an amazing and powerful scripture.

2 Corinthians 5:21 – “He made him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in him.”

2 Corinteni 5:21 – “El, pentru noi, L-a făcut păcat pe Cel Ce n-a cunoscut păcatul, pentru ca, în El, să devenim dreptatea lui Dumnezeu.”

Remind Me Who I AM


reminder

I’m the one you love

In these times, when the world is falling apart around us, when sin runs rampant and overwhelming, sometimes it’s even overwhelming for those TRULY in Christ and the questions can start. Sometimes we need to pause and get refreshed and ministered to.

Remind Me Who I Am by Jason Gray

When I lose my way,
And I forget my name,
Remind me who I am.
In the mirror all I see
is who I don’t want to be,
Remind me who I am.

In the loneliest places
When I can’t remember what grace is.

Chorus:
Tell me once again
Who I am to you, who I am to you.
Tell me, lest I forget
Who I am to You, that I belong to You,
To You.

When my heart is like a stone
And I’m running far from home,
Remind me who I am.
When I can’t receive your love
Afraid I’ll never be enough,
Remind me who I am.
If I’m your beloved
Would you help me believe it.

Bridge:
I’m the one You love,
I’m the one You love,
That will be enough,
I’m the one you love.

God is calling His church back from what men have made it. He wants our complete and undivided attention. Testing, testing, hardship seem to come our way more and more now and you may feel alone and abandoned. Maybe in this testing you took a little walk to the left. God loves you. He cares for you and wants your best. He hasn’t abandoned you.

The world is in judgement and severe things are coming and have come. He is strengthening you and drawing you closer to Him, because only in Him can you survive. If you’re in a time of testing or if you’ve drifted a little, take heart, refresh yourself, know that you are loved. If you haven’t accepted Jesus the Christ as your salvation, your one true link, your only hope in the destruction coming, take this time, call to Him, make this the time that your future is secure, that no matter what comes, you will know who you are…

America is Falling!


Note the laughing of the folks taking the video

In this time of signs and wonders, I’m one that sometimes wonders at the subtle signs. The above Olympic video was pretty much quashed from the American public. Any stories that actually got written in the media were quickly pulled. The warning is there, you can’t make this stuff up. When the song reached, ” the flag was still there” the flag was pulled down by the hand of God. Continue reading
