What a year on the political circus wagon, so far the worst in American history, that is really heading down the tube. Recently one candidate accused the POTUS of paying a huge ransom for four American hostages held by Iran, $400 million, that amounts to $100 million each. That tops, presumably, releasing 5 terrorists for one military deserter. WOW!
A couple of days ago something happened to me that would have been one of those, “okay, that hurt” episodes out in the field. While clearing out in the woods a major thorny vine got a hold of me in the ear. Instead of being a little prick it kept bleeding forcing me to come in. Nurse Sue was home so she tended me and it was a little prick, not worthy of all the show all over me. While she fussed and fumed all over me that there was so much blood for such a little thing I just sat there and smiled. Eighteen years earlier she chased me around with a Tetanus shot the night before we got married so that I wouldn’t get lock-jaw on our wedding day because I’d cut my finger (maybe now she’s thinking that’s one way to get me to be quiet). Well, there’s no chasing around with a shot this time. While sitting there I hadn’t, yet, caught a view of what I looked like. When I did get a view and saw all the blood I said to Sue jokingly, ” Wow, I wonder if that’s prophetic? Well, at least I get shot in the head.” Continue reading
As I look back I miss some of the people, who if empowered, could have kept this country great. For now, after their passing, all we can do is revisit and ponder their wisdom and almost prophetic calling. One such man was Paul Harvey. I’d listen with regularity his wit and wisdom and undying admiration for his love, Angel. The following should be almost scary or worse, given he saw this coming and no one knew or cared Continue reading
Well, as we continue to be locked in here in the Midwest by snow and sub-frigid temperatures things are heating up in other parts of the world. No, it has nothing to do with global warming, but it has everything to do with the condition of the world and the times we live in. Depending on how you read it Russian troops have invaded Crimea of the Ukraine or Russian troops have entered in to protect Russians in the Crimea. Ukraine claims up to 16,000 troops are on soil right now. Russian President Putin has stood his ground claiming the need while the POTUS wags his finger and says “get out of there or else”. Okay we won’t go there for now. Prison Planet has blamed this on the POTUS arrogance and hubris, maybe, but then Putin is claiming Western influence as the problem also.
Criminy, what’s the Crimea anyway? Continue reading
Well it’s coming, and come. The church of ungod. Yesterday 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
A Word that came to me yesterday for the church while I was meditating and praying about some crisis issues that have come up.
I am calling. I am calling because the time is short. I am calling for your faithfulness. The time is coming and is at hand where your comfort zone is to be removed. You pray for good things. You pray for comfortable things. You pray for wealth. At one time these things would have been added to you if your heart were Mine, but now you hold your heart as a ransom for things.
You say, but I have loved You. No you haven’t. You say, I have served You. No you haven’t. You say, I have given to You. No you haven’t
The Fallen One has called for your testing. Skin for skin, bone for bone. Remove the material comforts and we will see who serves The Lord or who serves me. We will see.
I have granted that testing. I will test you and many will fail, only to be given over to that final test. I am moving and time is mine. I will call My faithful and remove My lamp stand. Then those who have been deceived, fooled, will be left behind. The day is fast approaching when My people will no longer want to be a lamp on a stand, a city on a hill. They will be in hiding, waiting for my return while Death waits at their door.
To my faithful I say this, your love for Me has been proved, and continues to be proved, stand fast, stay the course, I will soon return to call you up to Me.

This word came this morning as I was in prayer.
Why do you sleep? Like a sluggard, a little folding of the hands, a closing of the eyes. You dream of what you will do, you dream of what will make you great. Why do you sleep? I’ve sounded trumpets. I’ve shaken the grounds. I’ve sent winds and scorching heat. Yet still you sleep. You dream of the great things you can build for me, yet they have your name on them. You build yourself up.
I am about to cleave this nation, the world will shudder. While you sleep I will split the land in two. The very heart of this land will be brought asunder. In your very heart I will render the earth apart and you who are not prepared will fall. I will tear you in two and your works will fail. Men will see that I am sovereign and just.
I have a few, and their hearts are prepared. They will rise up and minister to you. You will know that I am God and nothing, nothing, nothing I do will return void.
