When we search out the origin of something we are wanting to discern the nature of that thing. The roots of Halloween go back way further than to the Celts or the Druids of Scotland and Ireland. The specific practices of “Trick or Treat” have come from the superstitions of the people trying to avoid being cursed with bad luck by offering treats of grain or fruits of the harvest to the lazy Druid priests who did not plant or ...Continue Reading →
One of the things we must repent of is the judgments we have made against God. How many of us have believed lies about the goodness of God and doubted His bold and clear promises to love us and keep us and protect us because of what we have experienced? The disappointments, the prayers that lay unanswered, the pain, and delays that have bound us have come to steal away our faith and hope in God.
Jesus said, “Ask, and it ...Continue Reading →
In Mt. 4:16-17 Jesus said, “Repent for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand”. The Kingdom of God is near at hand, at the very door of our house.
Is. 46:12-13 Jesus may have been referring to Isaiah’s prophecy “Listen to me, you stubborn-hearted who are far from righteousness. I bring My righteousness near. It shall not be far off; My salvation shall not linger and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel My glory.”
Jesus was the fulfilment of God’s ...Continue Reading →
Here is a brief letter of clarification regarding the issues of guilt, sin, and condemnation raised by many who desire to understand the power of grace and the Enemy’s strategy to debunk the Gospel of Grace .
Just a side note before I get into the body of this discussion. I see from the reading of Romans 3:8 that Paul was also accused of having promoted some sort of evil (sin), that good may come (grace might abound). He seems to ...Continue Reading →
Are you down, depressed, stuck in a gray day or a rainy day week, or a month of blue-less skies and wish the sun would come out so you could catch up on your draining Vitamin D levels? Is your world filled with the drudgery of the mundane and the disappointment of your dreams crashing all around? Do you feel stuck and trapped inside “these four walls” and want to make a change?
O, here is a thought! Painting your room ...Continue Reading →

The eclipse, though viewed by multiple millions who made a ...Continue Reading →
Please note, that Jesus Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the Law, by having become a curse for us (Gal. 3:13). He redeemed us from the curse of Original Sin. His death brought in the New Covenant which purchased for us a new option, life and forgiveness. His sacrifice destroyed the curse of death and opened up the way for “whosoever will” to return to God.
Those who accept His gift of salvation are free from the curse of ...Continue Reading →
What happens to a tea cup when it is hit with a hammer? It shatters! What happens to a fragile little child hit with crisis, trauma, tragedy, abandonment, abuse, divorce, death and rejection? They shatter! The lives of most children are poorly equipped or protected against the lies of the Evil One. Their parents are often more part of the problem than the God given solution. Children are no match for the schemes of the serpent. They play ...Continue Reading →
Whatever happened to the revelation of Jesus Christ, Who said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life” (Jn. 14:6)? Truth is embodied in a person and that man is God’s Son. By Him all things consist and are held together (Col.1:17). He is the truth.
