GOD’S INTERVENTION

In these days when the corona-virus is raking our country and the world, there is a light here and there that becomes a testimony to the GRACE of GOD!  It is not the many that are healed, as much as the attitude toward their experience.  Some confidently faced death with the assurance of their salvation. Continue reading “GOD’S INTERVENTION”

I WILL FOLLOW THEE

Having watched Jesus perform numerous miracles, a scribe approaches Him and volunteers to follow Jesus.  There are many who fall into the category that this man volunteered for. Impressed with what Jesus had performed it is quite possible that he being a “scribe” might have lots to write about.  What is to be considered withContinue reading “I WILL FOLLOW THEE”

DUSTING OFF A BOOK

God has blessed me with a library of hundreds of books, mostly commentaries.  I love to read some of those that are long out of print.  I admit that some of the old English writings are a challenge. I read one commentary on the Song of Solomon sometime ago, and in the process of consideringContinue reading “DUSTING OFF A BOOK”

ANOTHER UNUSUAL OCCURRENCE

Much ado is made about the Israelites crossing the Red Sea.  Research after research has been done to prove or disprove such an occurrence took place. Every effort of digging at various locations and even an effort to call it the Sea of Reeds, so it would make it less of a miracle!  While suchContinue reading “ANOTHER UNUSUAL OCCURRENCE”

BLESSING BECOMES SIN

Perhaps you have caught this in the past, however just in case you might have missed the idea of a blessing can easily become a blight; sin if you did not observe the connection! When Israel left Egypt, after 400 years and ten plagues had battered them under Moses leadership, (Exodus 7-11) a most interestingContinue reading “BLESSING BECOMES SIN”

A CONTENTIOUS WOMAN

While reading I came across the 13th verse of Proverbs 19.  I thought to myself: “Ted!  You were a most fortunate individual.  In fact you rate amongst the few in history that can make that claim!” I would have a hard time to recall that Patsy ever displayed being “contentious”.  She was the epitome ofContinue reading “A CONTENTIOUS WOMAN”

BEEN TO A FUNERAL RECENTLY?

As a pastor over these many years, the number of funerals conducted has been extensive, and each one has some type of uniqueness to it.  I remember many of them, and recall what people wanted or did not want included.  The hardest was probably those of children; that does not surprise me, because I noticeContinue reading “BEEN TO A FUNERAL RECENTLY?”

THE WINGS OF A DOVE

I wrote recently about the many birds that come into our back yard.  They are all beautiful to watch and though we do not feed them, they must know how much they are appreciated by their daily return. A number of them are doves; whenever I take time to sit and watch them I noticeContinue reading “THE WINGS OF A DOVE”

RE-BIBLE

The story is told of the villager, who returning to his own village did so with excitement.  He told of his visit to the other village and proceeded to talk about what was taking place spiritually.  Excitedly he said: “They are having a Re-Bible! In effect, he was right.  When the fires of revival began,Continue reading “RE-BIBLE”

OLD FASHIONED, PURITANICAL

In 1986 we began the Commitment ministry. Together, Patsy and I had prayed and sought the Lord concerning our future. Her health and the weather had determined where we located…Arizona. It allowed us thirty more years of music and Bible teaching together. There were opportunities to re-locate, but we were confident of God’s leading andContinue reading “OLD FASHIONED, PURITANICAL”
