A Saint on the Road to the Army Encampment


godsfingers:

What an awesome and humbling statement about what we should be about. We feel good about throwing $100, $200 in the offering plate yet she gave more than she had for someone less than worthwhile because it’s , “just the thing to do”. If only we were more like her…

I’ve written before about Vasilica, her faith, her life, and the difficult situation she is in.  As we visited her last night, I was reminded once again of the power of God to turn normal, insignificant people into men and women of destiny, into saints.

For saints are not merely extraordinary Christians dead and gone, people to admire.  Rather, every follower of Jesus is called to be a saint, a holy man or woman of God, full of his power and love.  Saints are simply nobodies who said “yes” to the One and so became somebody.

1 Corinthians 1:2, “To the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours.”

Ephesians 5:3, “But immorality or any impurity or greed must…

Well, that’s a wrap. What’s for next year?


new year

So we’re at the end of another year. We survived the Mayan calendar, but is that the highlight of the year? In America, we’ve come through, endured, suffered many natural and unnatural events and crisis. None of which bode an air of having gotten through it, breath a sigh of relief and move on toward better. Far too many things have happened that can’t or won’t be turned back, to a direction with a sort of permanency. So whats up with this doom and gloom? Well, in no particular order:

The return of a lawless one. Continue reading

Plan’s for Failure


The Word of the Lord that came to me this morning.

Why do you seek me? Why do you ask why? Are you lost? Have you wandered? I have not moved, I have not changed yet you ask as though I have. You were warned, yes, I spoke directly of choices for your nation, yet few listened. Now you are at the edge of the abyss, at the very brink and you wonder. Your leaders are powerless. Have you prayed, have you sought my face, have you petitioned on behalf of your leaders? I tell you now, do so. Pray MY will, My plan, My direction for your leaders, your government, your future. The stone is set, the plans of men will fail. You are seeing just the beginning with seemingly no end in sight. The ways of men are corrupt and will be the judgment on them, the way of their failure, a point of no return.

But you, I have a place for. Those that seek my face and follow my direction will be covered. My ways are not man’s ways. What may seem strange and unusual, is. I am calling you to do unusual things. This will be a year of exploits, in My name. I will strengthen and impart to you. You need to come closer, closer to me than ever before. The enemy seeks to devour you all, his time is short and his fury rages. But I am, I am and in Me , only is protection. Abide in me and go as I direct, my people, who are called by my name will prosper in what they do, as I will direct. As things fall apart around you, remember it is I who holds the key, who holds all things evident. Take heart, be encouraged, follow closely to Me.

What do you give to someone who has everything?


humbling

God sent His Son, into this world to be born of a virgin, to live and die as a human and be the ultimate sacrifice, a gift from God.

Well, this is that time of year again. The time where religious debates abound with weizenheimers telling you that Jesus was born on this date or that date, anything but December 25th because that’s a pagan holiday. They are convinced that the birth would have occurred on this or that date, feast on the Jewish calendar (as if God were constrained to the Jewish calendar or any calendar for that matter) and even point at you and tell you that you’re going to Hell if you celebrate Christmas on December 25. They totally disregard Paul’s admonition that we aren’t to be caught up with dates, feasts etc. in Romans 14:5-8 . No one knows the date. The Magi didn’t document it. Herod assumed he took care of the problem. No one has found a Shepherds’ journal with the date written down. It could have been in the spring for all we know. I, personally, grew up, before atheists and commercialism took over, celebrating on December 25 and the warmth and regard of an entire nation pausing to give contemplation and recognition of the Savior of the world coming down in human form. But that was then. Continue reading

But Did They Have to Kill the Children?


Here we go again. Like many others I grieve for the families and friends of those murdered in NewTown, Conn. This was grievous, ugly, horrendous and the pain will go on. newtown But, in the pain, the truth needs to be told. This horrendous scene and the subsequent scenes that followed have NSA written all over them, much like the Colorado movie  shootings. Like the Colorado shootings a second gunman was witnessed, witnesses saw police lead a man in camouflage, handcuffed out of the woods, rifle shell casings were found yet the “gunman” had hand guns and the rifle was found in the car, the part about the second gunman disappeared. The gunman went out of his way to shoot up a school where his mother was not even on staff, and she wasn’t even there. Now I see a video of one of the father’s coached to read a cue card for his statement. And frankly, the text editor for this post went screwy when I put the title in before writing.

2 Earthquakes Off California Coast.


In a recent article I brought up a trend of major earthquakes hitting north and south of California forming a seeming oscillation around the Golden Bear state. Now, early this morning two strong earthquakes of 6.4 and 6.1 hit 166mi and 88mi , respectively from Avalon, California. These quakes were relatively shallow (about 10Km) but caused no damage reported yet. These two quakes seemed to have been building and I can’t help noticing that they are looking at Los Angeles square in the eye.

When I checked this morning on the Earthquake 3D program I have, I only saw one quake at 6.3. I’d noted earlier this year the tendency of the USGS to downgrade quakes and it appears that they decided to just average the two quakes, so does that make them 120 miles out? The track of the TWO quakes indicates a line just south of LA, a point of concern. When I wrote about observations earlier this year directing quakes toward California I noted an increasing crescendo  of directional movement towards the state. This is a wake up call.

10 Days More Before the End of the World?


Well, here we are, ten days to go. I’m all set, made all my preparations, I’m good to go.

mayan

More the case….

I talked to all my adult kids, made peace with any issues we had. I took out a $500M loan from a loan shark to ensure my cabin in steerage on one of the arks stowed in the Himalayas, booked my flight to get there. I’m not too worried about the loan shark :-) . Harold Camping was old and wise, but the Mayans, they were older and that was a smart group. I’m not worried about the fact they don’t exist anymore, they built that great place.

It amazes me, yet brings me great relief that more people aren’t on board with this. There’s not enough room in the arks as it is. Yet the writing is on the wall, or the stone, if you will. How can people ignore it, it says so, right there. Well, I for one am not about to ignore it. My house is sold, my bags are packed, gave my dog to my friend (the one I didn’t tell about the ark). We have a party planned the day before I leave for my (ahem..) Peace Corps trip (didn’t want to cause any consternation) so I don’t leave behind any food perishables. It’s good, I’m set, looking forward to the wonderful world that will be after the water subsides…….

Ya right! I got a bridge to sell ya, too. Continue reading
