JESUS IS COMING AGAIN

Some years ago, W.E. Blackstone, in his book “Jesus Is Coming” wrote… “WATCH therefore; for we know not what hour your Lord doth come.” -Matthew 24:42 “WATCH therefore; for ye know neither the day nor the hour.” -Matthew 25:13 “Take ye heed, WATCH and pray; for ye know not when the time is.” “WATCH yeContinue reading “JESUS IS COMING AGAIN”

A LOWLY NAZARENE

In fact, they may lose their “cool” in an effort to destroy any allegiance that I might possess in acknowledging Christ as my Lord and Savior.  They wonder why I might show allegiance to a “made up story” about an illegitimate child who is purportedly God in flesh.  Of course they address it as aContinue reading “A LOWLY NAZARENE”

THE HIGHEST POINT IN HEBREWS

Playing soccer was enjoyable, but I have to admit that I was not the first guy picked on the team.  With that much out of the way we will move on. The Olympics are not my priority to view.  While I admire the accomplishments of the athletes, and wonder in my mind how in theContinue reading “THE HIGHEST POINT IN HEBREWS”

SEPARATING EARTHLY AND HEAVENLY

We are all faced with the realization, as we wake each morning, I have all of these things to get accomplished.  They could be the simplest of challenges, and they could be monumental in our thinking.  The tug of war begins.  What is first on my agenda and what can wait? As a believer, IContinue reading “SEPARATING EARTHLY AND HEAVENLY”

THE FRINGE OF HIS CLOAK

After I visited the Holy Land, I was more than convinced how some use the items for profit, for support of their fantasies, for notoriety, the list is endless.  I fully expect them to find sufficient pieces of wood from the cross to build another Noah’s ark. The thought that has lingered in my mindContinue reading “THE FRINGE OF HIS CLOAK”

ON DEALING WITH REJECTION

With their bickering, the average individual found himself in a quandary about what he really believed.  This loaned itself to the crowds that went to listen to Jesus.  What He declared made sense and coincided with the average man’s interpretation of the Scriptures that existed in that day. His, Jesus’, initial presentation was specifically toContinue reading “ON DEALING WITH REJECTION”

THE ENGRAVERS HAMMER

Because “Pa” was not in the best of health, it meant we mowed his grass, along with the other necessities that became our routine.  It was often my duty to shave him on Sunday morning, early, so he could look his best as he went to church.  I look back today on the privilege thatContinue reading “THE ENGRAVERS HAMMER”

A TESTIMONY?

When things seem to go in the opposite direction from your intention, and persecution develops, how is it approached?  Reading Luke 21:13, it says that “It will lead to an opportunity for your testimony.”  In fairness, let me quote the surrounding portion.  “See to it that you are not misled: for many will come inContinue reading “A TESTIMONY?”

WHEAT AND TARES

In reality, it bespeaks the time in which we currently reside as much as it called attention to kingdom preaching.  (Matthew 13:24-30) Whenever Christ declared His message about the Kingdom, there was no problem in realizing that since Adam and Eve, we live exposed to living side by side, wheat and tares.   Since, Jesus hadContinue reading “WHEAT AND TARES”
