Is Your Halo Tarnished ?


First I would like to say seasons greetings to everyone and thank you for taking a moment to read this, for it is in the true spirit of the season that I give this message to all who may need a little help, in and for a new year.

I came across this wonderful but sad poem the other day along with this very expressive picture and, it falls right in line to what this message will…

Stop Blaming Politians

I was recently teaching a large adult SS class in a medium size church and asked if anyone could tell me something about the Protestant Reformation. Many in the class were prominent church leaders and teachers. Not one person knew what I was talking about. I was appalled to say the least. It is sad when Christians who attend church every Sunday for decades know only religious cliches' and talking points. Many church leaders cannot articulate a clear apologetic to a seeker. They do not…

While they promise them liberty.

Liberty; Freedom from restraint, in a general sense, and applicable to the body, or to the will or mind. The body is at liberty, when not confined; the will or mind is at liberty, when not checked or controlled.

There are people and organizations that claim to provide liberty from religion especially from the power of Christianity, for even the mention of Christ, the Bible, prayer, or even the showing of the cross is offensive to them, they all say it’s not politically correct and is…

The Servants of God.

“Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, my servants shall eat, but ye shall be hungry: behold, my servants shall drink, but ye shall be thirsty: behold, my servants shall rejoice, but ye shall be ashamed: Behold, my servants shall sing for joy of heart, but ye shall cry for sorrow of heart, and shall howl for vexation of spirit.”

The servants of God trust in Him believe in Him and depend upon Him. They put their trust, their families and their lives into His hands. We see because…

Atheism is a religion.

To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.”

A religion is, a system of doctrines or principles, being based upon the idea that certain truths are conceived by the notion that whatever we believe is true. Atheists believe that there is no God, no Satan and no punishment except death for transgressions against society. They do not believe that a man shall be…

The indoctrination of our Children in evil. The Great falling Away.

As the state of California is ready to indoctrinate school children into the acceptance of the homosexual lifestyle we wonder where this is all going.

There are many controversial subjects in the Bible, some hard to understand, the Apostle Paul was one whose writings fall within this category, but without teaching or preaching about them how then would the lost become aware of what sin is and how to be forgiven of it? Some of these subjects include but are not limited to…

Thanks be to God for His unspeakable gift!

We said a Irish prayer for all of our brothers and sisters specially for you, today, for family, true friends and faith to last your whole life through. We asked the Lord to give you shelter from the storm and just enough of His good grace to keep you safe and warm. We prayed the road would rise up to meet you all along the way and coin or two in your…

Dearly Beloved,


“It is because of the Lord’s mercy and loving-kindness that we are not consumed, because His [tender] compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great and abundant is your stability and faithfulness” (Lamentations 3:22-23 AMP).

“But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not ‘Yes’ and ‘No’” (2 Corinthians 1:18 NIV).

Apostle Paul planned to visit the church at Corinth, but some circumstances beyond…

Daniel, Chapter Four

Daniel 4:1-3

1 Peace be multiplied to you.

Nebuchadnezzar the king,

To all peoples, nations, and languages that dwell in all the earth:

2 I thought it good to declare the signs and wonders

that the Most High God has worked for me.

3 How great are His signs,

And how mighty His wonders!

His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom,

And His dominion is from generation to generation.

It seems good that chapter four…

A foreign missionary had an intimate friend. They had been together for quite a long time. The missionary really relied on this friend who was a native of the land. It happened that a persecution arose against the…

The Gathering of the Wheat and of the Tares

“The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then the tares appeared also. So the servants of the householder came and said unto him Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? From whence then hath it tares? He said unto them, an enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, wilt thou then that we go…

Dearly Beloved,

On December 3, 2006, I first sent out the message below to commemorate that year's World AIDS Day. There were many reactions both for and against the message. On Decemeber 5, 2009, I decided to resend it again to commemorate the year's World AIDS Day. Inasmuch as the situation of AIDS is still almost the same, I decide to send it out again to commemorate the year's World AIDS Day. Here is it:


"It is God's will that you should be sanctified:… Continue
