I Believe, Let Me Roar That

5 Comments


crossI can’t believe the significant increase in traffic over a post I made almost two years ago. The sting and conviction must be increasing and in effect validate the post of the Watchman. The posting, “Roaring on the inside“, was intended to sound a concern with personnel changes with the Newsboys and maybe a little drifting into the Grand Delusion. That discussions that have developed always entered into two schools of thought. One supporting the concern over the possibly veiled acceptance of perverting the scripture or the other supporting such creative license to do what ever with the scripture. The latter always come up with straw man arguments to support the cause but lack scriptural base themselves. The detractors typically come up with, “God Roars”, “Jesus is the Lion of Judah”, “C.S. Lewis has Jesus as Aztlan the lion roaring”, ad nauseam .

Though no retraction ever came out of it I believe the conviction was there on the part of the music team Continue reading

Welcome to the church of ungod


Well it’s coming, and come. The church of ungod. un-crossYesterday was an advent, a coming out party for the atheists who actually coveted what, at minimum, the pseudo christians had, and created their own church. I’d mentioned years ago, when I lived in the shadow of the FFR (freedom from religion) headquarters, that atheism is just a religion without God. They had their annual meetings with songs and preaching and someone there actually said, “it seems like church”. Continue reading

So, what is an AR15?

AR15 and 870 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

A lot of to do has been and is being made about the AR15, so what’s up?  The disarmers are trying their best to strike fear and loathing for the weapon. Or, as in the recent shootings at the Naval base, Feinstein referred to it as the weapon of choice. But, oh wait, the shooter didn’t have an AR15, just a shotgun and two pistols. So where did the AR15 come from? Oh, he had one in his hands the week before, but not this week. OOOOPS! Guilt by association.

So what happened? Continue reading

Moving Day


uhaul

We close on the farm this coming Monday. Whew! We’re filled with excitement and, at the same time, a bit of trepidation. God called Sue and I a year and a half ago to move. Where? A farm? But were not farmers. I’ll provide. A year and a half later God is good on His calling and His promise.

Over the last few weeks I’ve been impressed (when I’ve had time) of how, kind of, disconnected things have seemed. Continue reading

We Got Cows!

Our new herd

The phrase is taken from the movie “Twister” when they were caught in a tornado and cows came spinning by, and we still pinch ourselves as an almost equally incredulous expression. We have cows. Why, we’re asked? You don’t even have a farm, what’s the logic in that? Answer, because God says. Whenever I see or hear a preacher talking about logic, it’s only logical, it only makes sense, in regard to God and His workings I always wonder what Bible he is reading. Continue reading

Love Never Fails


handsAt this time in history, when so much prophecy is breaking out to fruition, when many friends and family are passing away and the prophetic comes out for readiness, I can’t help but feel a quiet anticipation, joy and fulfillment that the time is near, or here, that the perfection is about to come, the time of completeness. Jesus is about to return for His Bride and all the things that seemed so important will fall away when He comes in His completeness. Like the Hebrew marriage, we are betrothed to Him and He has gone to prepare the wedding chamber, and when complete He will return for His Bride. And that would be us, we who love Him. Today is Pentecost Sunday (not Pentecost for the sake of my detractors) When we celebrate God’s outpouring and Gift of the baptism of the Holy Spirit and power. Continue reading

Don’t Be Troubled


In response to Glynda’s message “Nothing To Fear“.

“”Good morning Glynda,

Yes, it has seemed a little worrisome in the silence. It hasn’t been just you, but for many of us. And your confirming Word is that He HAS been working all along, just as He promised us, through Word last year.

In looking behind (I know, we shouldn’t look back) we can see He has been carrying us, no harm has befallen us, some of us have been put into a forced(?) “be still and know I am Lord” period.

For some it is a disconcerting period, not hearing Words of judgement and calamity, but, God fulfilled His Word and put into action in November, that which was warned. There is no need to HEAR a Word right now, look around and see the evil unleashed as God withdraws His hand of protection.

“Be still”, until God specifically calls you into action, and enjoy His presence by your side. Let not your hearts be troubled, He is here. Continue reading
