February 5th, 2020

I arose at 4:30am and read 1 Samuel chapters 28 -31 and recited John chapter 13. For some reason my continence is low this morning and I do not know the reason. I was restless at times during the night. I normally sleep through the night and awake only once during the night to void. However, last night I awoke repeatedly and when I did my mind was thinking about something that Paul said on Mars hill: A day and an hour is coming in which God will judge the world in righteousness through a man whom he has appointed, furnishing proof to all men by raising him from the dead. Paul was of course talking about the final judgment and the Son of God Jesus Christ being the Son of Man who has been appointed judge for he is the one whom God raised from the dead. The question is, why was this statement on my mind every time I awoke and I awoke numerous times during the night? My first orientation appointment yesterday was strange. The man began saying that people avoid him because he is always talking about God. I gave him one of the gospel tracts that the Lord had given me to write. He said that he liked the tract and could give these out; therefore, I gave him several of them so that he could. It was difficult doing his orientation interview because he was continually talking about something. He called himself an Israelitist and said that the lost tribes of Israel went north and that he was of the tribe of Dan that migrated to Ireland. I ignored these things and tried repeatedly to redirect him back to his health and exercise history interview. How do people get so wild in their thinking? Why do people take something small out of Scripture and make it into something else? The gospel is so very simple. We have all broken God’s law. Jesus paid the penalty in blood (his life) because of this, God can now be just and justify the one who has faith in Jesus. God raised Jesus from the dead and Jesus will raise all from the dead on the last day. Those who repented to eternal life and the unrepentant to eternal punishment.

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
