The Most Compelling Way to Follow The Master

What would drive a Godfearing man to travel nearly 900 miles with his two sons, taking several weeks before arriving in Jerusalem just in time to celebrate Passover?

Why were you unexpectedly pressed into service by the local authorities, to walk behind The Master, requiring three of Jesus The Nazarene’s disciples to record your noble act in the New Covenant?

What does love look like?

It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy.

It has eyes to see misery and want.…

Take Not Your Holy Spirit From Within Me!

The most profound indication of the Love of God that has been gifted to humanity is the indwelling and ministry of the Holy Spirit within the inner-spiritual life of each seeker of absolute truth. This blessing was granted when Jesus from Nazareth implemented the only divinely effective methodology to deal with the impact that sin has on the world conditions and the wicked condition of the human heart during and prior to the end of this evil…

Placing All Trust Under The Shadow of Thy Wings

If ever there is a greater need for God’s active intervention in our human lives, now is that time! For those who delight in seeking and then becoming a benefactor of our Heavenly Father’s promises, you will not have to look beyond the Books of Psalms.  The Psalms have recorded some one hundred and twenty-seven mentions of the Most High coming down to help the helpless and those who are in covenant with Him.

The Manna From Heaven That Gives Life To The World

So He commanded the skies above and opened the door of heaven. He rained down “Man” on them as food. He gave them grain from heaven-morals are the bread of angels; He provided for them to the full. Psalms 78:24
The Bread of Life
This opening scripture is…

Seeking Sanity within a Culture of Insanity

How is it that we as a supposedly sane and civil modern society, continue to tolerate the multi-generational systemic evil of terroristic attacks on our own citizens? How is it possible that the allegedly most powerful nation in modernity claim to worldwide fame is the termination of its own. And for what reason? What is the just cause for the normalcy of insanity and inhumanity in our psyche and everyday lifestyle?…

How One’s Calling and Mission… Keep you in the Present!

Often I sometimes wonder just how would I have responded and reacted if I was one of the twelve disciples who witnessed Jesus from Nazareth personal suffering, death, burial and resurrection? Would my thoughts, actions, and deeds be any different than the initial twelve that He elected?

In the day of prosperity...but in the day of adversity consider-

Our Creator permits both prosperity and adversity into our human experience for His sovereign purposes, often not revealing the entirely of His desired plan for us at the time of our suffering. Please consider this passage from the Book of Wisdom:
In the day of prosperity be happy, but in the day of…

Then My Living Shall Not Be in Vain!

With so much evil, treachery, and narcissism in our culture, all of which seemingly is both admired and rewarded, one may ask the question, what is the purpose and the impetus of being “good?” The answers to this question may be obtained in the story of a certain lawyer who posed a question to Jesus from Nazareth at the advent of His public ministry in Jerusalem centuries ago.

Shalom rav! [Abundant Peace]

While it is our responsibility to honor and serve God by presenting ourselves as living sacrifices, it is God’s responsibility to us as His faithful people to prove Himself to be a true and almighty God. All life as we know it is in Him for He is without question the author and giver of all life on earth and in all of His created forms.

Embracing God’s Consolation for All Nations

As we all are quickly approaching the traditional celebration of the Holiday of Christmas, I was moved to revisit the Biblical record of the powerful prophetic writings from the prophets and the apostles concerning the physical coming of Jesus of Nazaret as The Messiah.

As I read through the most commonly told accounts about Jesus, I was drawn toward one person who is perhaps mentioned once in the Gospels. Below is my account of this man’s story and how his unique encounter…

Serenity Within a Discontented Culture

There are simply three human conditions that to me, are the quintessential embodiment of Messiah’s love for us in a time where there are so much unhappiness and emptiness in people’s  lives where many are not content with what they possess.

Emblem of the Righteous in the Desert of A Guilty World

As a child, there is one statement that was repeated to me over and over again, “If you lie, you will steal, if you steal, you will kill.” I must confess that as a child, I did not understand the essence of this statement until later on in my life. Those who would communicate this stern warning to me did so in hope that somehow I would seek after what was righteous and not those things that were wicked.

Two Ways of Overcoming This Present Evil Age

In my prayer time on this morning, I am ever concerned while very prayerful that no present evil within or without shall usurps the power and authority of God in all of this creation. As insane as America[and the world] is at present, I am writing the Body of Christ to remain committed to your first Love which is Christ, and to not compromise your heavenly position in Christ regardless of your current condition in this evil age.

Representing Righteousness in a godless culture.

Have you ever wondered what The Master was implying when He stated, be wise as serpents and harmless as doves in Matthew 10:16?

In this blog, it is my intention to highlight the central rationale behind this statement as I will communicate in the first person, what was discovered in my personal review of this text. I pray that it will serve as an encouragement to those who are disciples of The Master. [To enjoy the entire blog, please follow the link below]…
