The Hollow Promises:

Have you spent time chasing the Hollow Promises, of this life? 

You know what I mean. 

Fame, Fortune, Love, Pleasure. All the things  that we could ever want, desire, need or even imagine.

Many spend whole lives chasing after these Promises, to gain much in material possessions, only to lose that which is truly important.

So if the things we seek are hollow,  meaningless, even worthless? What?  Should we be seeking?

Many believe a loving God will not send them to hell, the good in their lives outweighs the bad.

I pay my taxes, the government takes care of the poor.  I plan for and prepare for my future.

I go to church, sing in the choir, serve on all the important boards and committees.

None of that matters!  WE WERE CREATED FOR ONE PURPOSE!  To walk, talk fellowship and please God.

Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure, they are and were created.’  (Revelation 4:11)

How do we give Him Pleasure?  True Praise.  Singing, speaking, and meditation on His Word and ways.

I realize that in my life, lately,  I have not gotten or given God much pleasure.

I have missed the mark of the High Calling of God. I have allowed pain and probably fear steal my joy,

I am blessed at this point, Bette has become a wonderful caregiver.

She has gotten my pain pills on an almost tolerable schedule. Pain is there but not quite unbearable.

I must learn to praise, worship, and walk-in faith. Death itself is not a concern.

My trust must be in the Lord to take care of Bette and Celeste. Knowing that He will do a better job than I, any day.

So Praise, Sing, Worship, focus on Him, not myself. Rest in Him, which is the first job man had.

Man was created and then rested. Look to the Lord, from whence comes our help.

Worship happens as the Lord begins to show Himself strong, and we experience His presence.

That is when we see and become one with Him.

My favourite source of news and information is radio. As a Christian Conservative, I listen to National Public Radio, news and information.

Also the Main Stream, Media News Outlets, ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS…

I also listen to Conservative and Christian, Talk Radio.

To hear the most details of any story, you need to listen to the last two.

The reason Liberal People, think the way they do, can only be accreaded to the source, of their information.

Or more accurately, their lack of information, involved in most News Stories.

The News need not be Fake, to be misleading. Just incomplete.

More importantly, when I want the facts about the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. I have many places to search.

Jewish writings, Catholic, Lutheran, Episcopalian, Weslyn, or Penticostal Doctrine.

Or the Bible.

To know the Truth of the Trinity, my source must be the Bible. All these religions have a piece of Truth.

None have it all.

You should not go to the Penticostals to understand Jewish beliefs. Or Catholics to understand the Gifts of the Spirit.

It is great to hear all sides, but to know the Truth, you must go to the Source of all Truth.

Seek the Lord. Seek Revelation Knowledge. Always find the two or three Scriptures that confirm what is Revealed.

There is always more than one Scripture that leads to Truth.

The Lord gave us Freewill, and Intelligence, Reason and Understanding.

Seek the Word Yourselves and find the Truth. Man may be in error.

2 Timothy 3:16-17 (KJV)

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Search the Scriptures. Find the Truth. Amen

Denominational Differences : – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

As I searched for Christ in the late 70’s, I prayed to find a God of Power and Might, I didn’t care for more hot air.  ..Growing up in the Catholic Church I knew the Bible stories, thought I was a Christian because I was Catholic.

I knew God was real, didn’t understand anything about a personal relationship.

Then I  met the Lord.   I was led to Him by a wonderful,  loving young woman and her mother, as I  was hitch hiking a ride to this place called Christian Retreat, in Bradenton Fla.

I fell in love with Jesus, Continue reading

To be like Barnabas : The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

Who was Barnabas?

First off a man who gave up all, to follow Jesus:

“Barnabas, (which is, being interpreted, The son of consolation,) a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus,  Having land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.”

A man who recognized the hand of God in Pauls life and took him to the brothers.
