The Everlasting Father

Nothing is permanent in this earth. There is an end of time that will come for everything and everyone. There is nothing that is everlasting here. Friends come and friends go. Loved ones are here and then they are gone. Money comes and money goes. Houses and stuff, it all comes and it all goes.

 I didn't really think about this to much until yesterday after putting our dog (Angel) to sleep. She had been with us for almost 15 years. We've had to put pets to sleep before but this time it was different somehow. I started thinking about how nothing in this life lasts forever, and the years with our dog Angel made me think about the last fifteen years as a whole, and what life has entailed.

Our children grew as Angel grew. It made me take inventory of life and what life is all about. There is no permanence, no consistencies. When it is all said and done, there is an end that comes and it cannot be stopped. Life is fleeting. There is fulfillment for the short vapor of time and then…
I AM THAT I AM

These words spoken to Moses in Exodus 3:14 have had a very dramatic effect on the children of Israel and followers of Jesus all through history. "I AM THAT I AM" What exactly does that mean to you and I. And how can we apply this to ours lives in this day and time of history.

First of all we acknowledge, that in the beginning was the Word and the Word spoke "LET THERE BE". We are speaking of a all encompassing God. For by Him all things were made. This is exciting because there is a Father God who created everything for us. Out of the infinite love that He has for us, He created. In Him is all truth and understanding of the universe. He knows how every atom, molecule, and quark is supposed to act, because He made them. For example, suppose I created a new automobile that runs on sand. You would probably scratch your head and say how can this be, but I, as the inventor will have the understanding of the process to turn sand into a energy source. Likewis…

The Perfect Love

If you read the Song of Solomon you will find the most Intimate Expressions of love in it's purest form. Our almighty God is the Author and Creator of love for He is Love. We all know the world's definition of love. We see it everywhere we go. How sad it is that the world has defiled and perverted such a beautiful thing created by God by plastering the televisions, theaters, magazines and books with such a shallow idea of what they consider to be love. There are so many people looking for love  in all the wrong places, sadly they will remain empty for only Christ can fill this void in mankind's heart. Oh! to know the love of Jesus that far surpasses all of our shallow understanding. Christ's desire is to flood our beings and fill us to saturation and overflowing with His great love. Listen to some of the Intimate Expressions of the Shepherd's great love for His Bride in the Song of Solomon.

HOW FAIR you are, my love [he said], how very fair! Your eyes behind your …

Be a Living Praise

Are you alive with the praises of God? If you are, you will understand when I say, praise has a way of lifting our load and making our steps lighter. Praise is life and energy. It sets our eyes on our Creator and removes them from our worldly situations that would normally hold us down. A person of praise is someone who is not hindered by everyday circumstances. Yes, things may be tough but they are determined to praise the Lord through it all. They have gotten a hold of the revelation that praise will break the chains that tries to keep them bound. They know that when they begin to lift their hands and open wide their mouth to praise the Lord that He will hear and come to them.
Freedom is just a praise away
And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. (Acts 16:25…
