Get On Your Knees and Fight Like a Man!


http://cccmurphysboro.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/praying-israelite.jpg?w=275&h=265It’s obvious, I love music. I live and breath music and the more that I can offer up in God’s service the sweeter it is and the more connected I feel. But today’s music has been getting soft, nice, unoffending. Don’t get me wrong, I like the music, but in a lot of cases there is no strength to it, no relational connection to Christ, kind of like music you could safely hear on secular radio, or love songs you could sing to your sweetheart. Much of the music has lost the edge, the edge of the sword.

Is this what’s happening, Continue reading

Spring Changes?


springWell, it’s Spring today. We still have 3 feet of snow, it was 7 degrees and wind blowing when I got up at 4am. Didn’t I just say it’s spring today? I love Wisconsin. Continue reading

I’ve been thinking about grace lately


godsfingers:

Awesome Grace, God’s Grace. Unmerited favor from God, we don’t deserve it, can’t earn it, it’s not for sale. God freely gives it if we’re not too proud to take it up.  No amount of intellectual reasoning can achieve it. God freely gives it, by His Spirit, still alive and working today as it was in the time of the Apostles. Good job, Ben.

Originally posted on Footsteps In The Deep:

Lately, the topic of “grace” has been on my heart.  It’s such a powerful word, and yet most of us don’t even have any idea about what it means.  We read it in the Bible all the time (“Grace and peace to you…”) and use it even in our everyday lives (“Just give me a little grace this time…”).  It’s almost like we’ve gotten so familiar with it that we forgot what it means, like when you repeat a word over and over and over again so that it eventually loses all meaning.

Grace.  It changes everything.

Just take a look at what grace does according to Ephesians 2:4-9.  It reads, “But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us…

Unholy Alignments!

Meteorite causing over 500 injuries and property damage. (AP)

What a bumpy second month of the year. What got off as a relatively quiet start got pretty rocky in the second month. Earthquakes, political, religious and meteoric events happening all at once, or at least over the next month and a half.

Today we’re supposed to have a close flyby of an asteroid. It’ll be close, but no cigar. No Apocalyptic dash into the ocean as depicted in Revelation 8:10-11, we’re safe. But wait! This morning a meteorite crashed over Russia in an affect like the movie “Deep Impact” roaring across with sonic booms blowing out windows and collapsing buildings. And some fragments fell in the reservoir like the campy Asylum Films movie, ” Apocalypse”  where the water got poisoned. Hmm, better check the water. Could the asteroid take a left turn?

Midwest Earthquake, Collision Course With God!


This morning the Solomon Islands were rocked again, this time with a 7.1 magnitude earthquake. What’s an aftershock and an earthquake is getting kind of blurry right now with repeated 6 plus “aftershocks”. Yes, the Pacific Rim is getting very angry or is this a very angry God?

Is the Mid-West next?

It bears repeating. What’s up? The Solomon Islands have been rocking and rolling the last couple days with immense energy after what I’d previously described as a quiet January. Now all bets are off as far as the USGS “normal” activity goes. We’re back at an expectation of what does God have in store for this planet as the end of ages approaches. Continue reading

8.0! I’m After Shocked by the Initial Shock!


Global plate tectonic movement

Ok, so yesterday I read, “Recent Quake Activity not Unusual, Expert says” which is, I guess, not shocking. Then, last night, I read that the Solomon Islands got rattled by an 8.o earthquake with at least three 6++ aftershocks. 6.8 is an aftershock??? After the first three 6+ earthquakes in the area do you think USGS could have quit hedging their bets and suggested that maybe, just maybe they could expect something bigger there, soon??? I wrote about, seemingly, the proclivity to issue appeasement articles from USGS, earlier last year to try to cover up the uptick in activity. It was apparent to those of us watching that we could expect something soon. Stan Deyo hit it dead on his forecasting maps from the 27th of January. Continue reading

Ok, What’s up? Four 6+ earthquakes at once?


Ok, I got the snow cleared out of our access driveway finally. I can’t complain, it’s been since December since the last big snow and, God knows, we need the water. January was pretty mild and quiet, for Wisconsin, and much of the water soaked in hopefully appeasing the drought.

Speaking of quiet, what looked like an auspicious start for the month with a 7+ earthquake to start the year things became very quiet. A pretty much uneventful month giving the doubters credence to their disregard of escalating global events. The month went by, everyone sat back and went back to business as usual. Continue reading
