And one of them, Caiaphas, being high priest that year, said to them, “You know nothing at all, nor do you consider that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people, and not that the whole nation should perish.” Continue reading
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your King is coming to you; He is just and having salvation, Lowly and riding on a donkey, A colt, the foal of a donkey.” Continue reading
And you, O tower of the flock, the stronghold of the daughter of Zion, to you shall it come, even the former dominion shall come, the kingdom of the daughter of Jerusalem.” Continue reading

So they went to bury her, but they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands. 2 Kings 9:35 Continue reading
Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. Rev 12:1-2
September 23, 2017!
I’ve seen it called Revelation 12 day when Continue reading
Was Jesus born on December 25th. Anything is possible but it’s hardly likely. It really doesn’t matter because Jesus should be celebrated every day!
It’s a shame that so many don’t recognize that and only think of the Savior on Easter or at Christmas.
He is not recognized as the Lord of all!
Not long after His birth something wonderful happened.
Now when the days of her purification according to the law of Moses were completed, they brought Him to Jerusalem to present Him to the Lord (as it is written in the law of the Lord, “Every male who opens the womb shall be called holy to the Lord”), and to offer a sacrifice according to what is said in the law of the Lord, “A pair of turtledoves or two young pigeons.” Luke 2:22-24
He was taken to the Temple. Now remember He is only about 6 weeks old or so.
While at the Temple a man named Simeon and a elderly widow named Anna recognized this Baby as the Messiah.
Both spoke and prophesied over Him,
And Joseph and His mother marveled at those things which were spoken of Him. Luke 2:33
It is a shame that more did not recognize Him as Messiah at that time.
It is a shame that more do not recognize Him as Savior and Messiah today!
Those two in the Temple that day, weren’t around to celebrate the birth of Jesus at the manger. They won’t be around to celebrate with the Wise Men. But they did celebrated Jesus forty days after His birth.
He is meant to be celebrated each and every day!
Abba, every day I see the Savior in all the things around me. Christmas and all that comes with it, reminds me of the Savior, but then I choose to be reminded! In Jesus name, YES&AMEN
Giving prophecy is not as difficult as predicting prophecy, which seems somewhat ironic – to predict what is predicted.
To give it properly you would just speak what God has given you to speak, just as the prophets of old did, like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and so on.
What each gave can be a more difficult thing.
For instance in Rev 17:9 it says,
Here is the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.
I know Rome sits on seven mountains (hills) but it is not the only city to do so.
Here are a few on that list.
- Kampala, Uganda
- Albany, NY
- Athens, Tx
- Athens, Greece
- Tehran, Iran
- Amman, Jordan
- Mecca, Saudi Arabia
- Barcelona and Madrid, Spain
- Moscow, Russia
- Lisbon, Portugal
- And Jerusalem, Israel
Now does Rome seem likely? In my opinion so do Athens, Mecca, Moscow, Tehran, and Jerusalem.
Only time will tell how prophecy is fulfilled.
Keep the words of Jesus in your mind at all times,
“Look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:28
Abba, Your word will be fulfilled as You see fit. I await that fulfillment but until then I will be diligent to share the Gospel of Jesus. YES&AMEN
The Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream by night; and God said, “Ask! What shall I give you?” 1 Kings 3:5
What would you ask from God if he offered you anything you want? Continue reading
It’s another rainy morning.
As I sit down to read my Bible, pray, and write, it is pouring down. It’s quite a stark contrast to last year.
In fact, I think we have had more rain in July than we received all of last year!
The drought was hard on us. Oppressive heat and lack of moisture dried out vegetation and brought on the worse wildfire in the state’s history. Continue reading
