DON’T BE A FOOL

This world is incredible and is full of mysteries. The sun; a massive heat pump that sits just far enough from the earth to make our climate such that life can be sustained on it, containing thousands of gallons of water that is cycled daily. Evaporated from the oceans condensed into cloud formations, formulated into rain storms that shower down onto the land of the earth were the plants of the earth drink, the animals of the earth drink, and the men of the earth drink, 60% of our bodies are water, we couldn’t live without it, the water is returned to the sea by streams. It is a massive system that works to absolute precision. All compounds exist in three forms; as a solid, a liquid and as a gas. Water is such that it exist as a solid, liquid, and as a gas within a very tight spectrum of temperatures; go beyond that tight spectrum of temperatures it exist as either a gas or solid, life has to have liquid water to exist, so the temperatures of the earth must be maintained within a…

That Thing Called Love

There is something that is on my heart and what that something is, that thing called love. “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in truth, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails”. True love, what is true love? True love is when you do something for someone else knowing full well that it won’t benefit you in the slightest and may even hurt you. From where does such love come from, dare I say from God! The bible says “God is Love”. Jesus said: “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends”. I write this even now because I want to share with you the immensely, unimaginable love God has given me. Though I did not deserve it He laid down His life for me, when I think of that it confounds me. I write a lot about the law of God and there is a reason fo…

If You Love Me

“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the spirit” (Romans 8:1).

When I read this verse the Lord has revealed to me four things, one of which is that all are condemned. If you are now not condemned if you are in Christ, then therefore you where condemned before you where in Christ. “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23a). We are sinful beings living in a fallen world. Look at all that is going on in this world today and you will know that we live in a fallen world, all you have to do is turn on a news channel just briefly and you will hear terrible things befalling this world and man. Earth quakes, tsunamis, unemployment, you can’t turn on a news channel without seeing someone argue with someone else, it seems everyone is out for themselves. Satan when he fell from heaven said five times “I will” (Isaiah 14:1…

Go Home To Your Friends

“Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you” (Mark 5:19). For this purpose I right this blog!

In the Gospel of Mark there is an account of Jesus and His apostles crossing the sea to the country of the Gadarenes which is the opposite side of the sea from Galilee. There was a man there that had an unclean spirit that caused him to do all kinds of evil; Jesus cleansed him of that evil spirit saving the man. This man was so grateful and so in love with his Lord (Jesus) that he wanted to go with Him and be with Him but the Lord told him no; “go home and tell people what I did for you”. “However, Jesus did not permit him, ‘Go home to your friends, and tell them what great things the Lord has done for you, and how He has had compassion on you” (Mark 5:19). Then the man went throughout that region (Decapolis modern day Jordan) telling everyone what Jesus had done for him, how he had compassion on him, how he h…

Not Condemened

“He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (John 3:18). I will usually ask God on Sunday morning to give me a verse or a couple of verses out of His word to memorize and meditate on all week, this week He gave me John 3:18. The most well know verse in the bible occurs just two verses prior; “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” (John 3:16). This is the gospel (the good news) the verse that ties these two together says; “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved” (John 3:17). God loves each and every one of us; the cross is evidence of His love for us. Every single man, women, and child walking the face of this earth is God’s creation, He created everything. The simple fact that there is a cre…
