1 in 5 children are hungry

1 in 59 children have autism

1 in 5 children are dyslexic

25.8% of children are raised by a single-parent

6.5% of children drop out of high school

1 in 4 children are illiterate (25%)

84 of 1000 single-parent children are abducted

There are 188 abortions for every 1000 live births

These numbers are easily found on the net. I do not claim they are all correct, but I do implore all of us to think about what is happening in our country.

1 in 5 or 6 or 59? Really? 25%? Is this possible? Could this be true?

I firmly believe that we have a Spiritual Problem. We have allowed the god of this world, to destroy our education system, our laws and the morality of our people.

We have embraced sin, rejected the Holy One and allowed our TVs and Internets to raise our children. Many do not teach their children to attend church, respect authority, or encourage what was once common courtesy.

We can no longer disagree if we do we are haters, racist, homophobic, Nazis, or worse Christian. The left’s newest hate group.

Saints, we need to fast and pray, groan and travail in pain making intercession with groanings that cannot be uttered, until we find all things working together for good for those who love God and are called together for His purpose. (Romans 8)

We must turn the ship of state back to following and loving the Lord. He is a living God. We need to Confess His Word over our Country. His Word is Truth, it is Powerful, we must speak His Word to this World.

“Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant. Moreover, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.

(Jeremiah 1:9-12)

When we put the Lord’s Word into our mouths, we will see the answers to our prayers. He watches over His Word to perform it. Not our words.

Imaginating This: theunfetteredpreacher

Have a good time…. A Paul Simon song. I remember it like this.

‘Yesterday it was your birthday, you hung another year on the line. Imaginating this and imaginating that. … Have a good time.’

Imaginating:

When I was young a simple bath towel could be Superman’s cape as I flew around the yard and fought bad guys, or the cape of Zorro, helping me battle the corrupt establishment.

Often I was playing alone. Toy soldiers, (little green men), had me captivated for hours. I would also set chairs in a row and pretend they were an airplane or army jeep.

I spent a lot of time Imaginating. (I know it’s not really a word, but I like it). As I got older, things changed.

Playing catch was a major pass time. Often with Susan Navin, a beautiful, smart young lady, who was a much better athlete than I ever would be, and of course multiple hours with Joe Olivari.

He was also a much better athlete than I. We spent many enjoyable hours, throwing a baseball or football.

Mindless activities. Wonderful times.

Music was also a huge part of my life. Bruce Gibbs, I, and a few others spent hours working to be the next rock and roll success. What, you never heard of us? No joy there.

It was after these times that I fell off the rails. It took quite a while to find them again.

As an adult, I have spent much time at the piano, playing old standards, and earning a good part of my living. I never developed beyond basic skills.

I have spent many hours tuning pianos and making a living, enjoyable work. Making music from many neglected instruments.

Just random memories. I hope you have pleasant times you remember also.

The Promise and the Problem: theunfetteredpreacher

The Bible is full of wonderful Promises, but there is always a Problem.  The IFS.

The Lord Promises:
The evildoers will be cut down and wither IF we are not envious or concerned with them.
That we shall dwell in the land and be fed, IF we trust in the Lord and do good.
He will give us the desires of our hearts IF we delight ourselves in the Lord.
He will bring these things to pass IF we commit our way to the Lord, and trust in Him.
He will bring forth our righteousness as the light, and our judgment as noon.


We must learn to rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him. Quit worrying about how the other guys are prospering by being wicked.
We must learn to cease from anger, and forsake wrath. Not allow ourselves to do evil, for evildoers will be cut off.
We must wait upon the Lord, so we inherit the earth.

“The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.    Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.    I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”


We must depart from evil and do good, and we will dwell forevermore.
We should mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for his end is peace.

Selected verses from Psalms 37, the Promises and our Problems, paying attention and accomplishing the IFS.

The LORD is nigh: theunfetteredpreacher

Psalm 145:18,-21

The LORD is nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth.

He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.

The LORD preserveth all them that love him: but all the wicked will he destroy.

My mouth shall speak the praise of the LORD: and let all flesh bless his holy name for ever and ever.”

LORD, I cry unto thee: theunfetteredpreacher

Psalm 141:1-4

LORD, I cry unto thee: make haste unto me; give ear unto my voice, when I cry unto thee.

Let my prayer be set forth before thee as incense; and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice.

Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.

Incline not my heart to any evil thing, to practise wicked works with men that work iniquity: and let me not eat of their dainties.
