Divided Person

The closer I become to my Lord the more I’m divided as a person. Let me explain; yesterday I wrote something on my facebook account after experiencing a death, this may help to clarify what I mean. “In Christ I find myself an emotional mess (wreck may be a more accurate word). I have inexpressible joy for the cross and extreme sorrow for the lost. We as believers must stop ignoring hell and start proclaiming the only cure, there is but one way.” One thing I have found to be true as I walk with Jesus and learn from him is this, if you are born again, you will not remain as you once were, He will change you. God has no intention of leaving us in our carnal, unregenerate state, He is transforming us, transforming us to be like Jesus; this process is not an easy one.

I have periods everyday when I am so overwhelming joyful for what He has done for me. Allow me to explain this through 1 Corinthians 5:21, “He (God the Father) made Him (God the Son) who knew no sin to be sin on ou…

The Most Wonderful Words

What gives you comfort? For some it might be a particular type of food, a warm blanket, an interesting book, a warm cup of cocoa, a pet, a house filled with children, or any number of things. This has been on my mind for the past week as I have thought a great deal about what gives me comfort. For myself, what gives me the most comfort in the entire world is reading the word of God (the Bible). I picked up a bible one day and started to read it; I have done so now every day for over nine years straight. There are many factors that you could put together to say why I might have done this, but when you really get down to it there is no real logical explanation for it, outside of the divine providence of God. I have no doubt that the Holy Spirit God, drew me to the scriptures, and in doing so saved my life. I was such a sinful man; I have two emotions when I think about what I was before being born again of the Holy Spirit of God. I am sickened by it, followed by extreme overw…

Is America Hostile to Biblical Christianity

Yesterday afternoon I was out with my cross, on the cross I carry are the words; “ARE YOU READY” this is in reference to Hebrews 9:27, “And inasmuch as it is appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment”. So the question is keeping with biblical Christianity, contrary to the modern American gospel. The modern gospel asks: “Do you want to go to heaven?” Biblical Christianity and historical Christianity asks the question; “Are you ready to face God in judgment?” Yesterday afternoon I spent one hour out with the cross at the corner of Broadway & Rice in Tyler, TX. While there I decided to listen to a sermon given by my pastor Phillip Dancy of Sylvania Church, this past Sunday evening called “Persecution and Early Church” (If you want to hear click on the title and it will take you to the sermon on sermon audio). As I was listening to this sermon he said something that I found very interesting, he told the congregation that we don’t know persecution because we li…

4th of July Outreach

My brother in Christ Seth Capps and I went to the fireworks show in Longview on the 4th of July.  We spent time worshiping Christ by handing out hundreds of gospel tracts to the crowd, talking with many people about Jesus Christ, and we both spoke the words of this life in open-air.  We each shared the word of God in open-air and preached the gospel; I recorded Seth's open-air on my phone.  I hope you will be blessed by it, I for one was.  There is nothing like worshiping Christ in telling the world about Him.

How will You Believe

Remember these words of Christ, “If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?” (John 3:12). It is very interesting how people will take Bible verses out of context to make them mean whatever they want them to mean and often times not realize what they have done. Most times when this is done, it is done parroting another who said it before. The most popular and most well known verse in the Bible is probably the most often miss used and miss quoted verse in all of scripture. Whenever you hear this verse quoted, it is most often quoted in and of itself not using the supporting scriptures that surround it, the book of Proverbs is a book of single one-liner quotations, the gospels are not. The gospels are a set of individual stories as a whole making a larger core story with a single theme in mind; the perfect sinless Lamb of God, the Son of God, God incarnate dying on a cross as a Man for the sins of man, being buried, and …
