TOO PROUD TO ASK

Over the years a preacher is approached with all types of questions, sometimes they are legitimate, and other times they come from pre-conceived ideas.  When they originate I try to determine the apparent legitimacy; or is it for the purpose of arguing.  I hate debating, and thus I find myself in a defensive mode, evenContinue reading “TOO PROUD TO ASK”

THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST

“Therefore also God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those who are in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of GodContinue reading “THE INCOMPARABLE CHRIST”

HAZARD OR HAVEN

One of our returns to my homeland, the Island of Bermuda, produced much by way of reflection.  As the plane began its descent, the Captain announced the arrival time in Bermuda to be in approximately thirty minutes.  As the minutes slipped by, we were aware of the color changes in the ocean.  We viewed theContinue reading “HAZARD OR HAVEN”

SPONGE CAKE

I have many dear friends in Bermuda, my place of birth a few years back.  Among them have been Joel and Jane Madeiros.  Their home has been our home whenever we return.  Jane went “home” to be with the Lord, and I returned for her funeral.

When in college a few years back, someoneContinue reading “SO YOUR MEMORY IS SLIPPING”

BEEN HELPING GOD LATELY?

This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ Says the Lord of hosts. zECHARIAH 4:6 Over the years I have frequently struggled with that very idea. Oh, no! I never said it directly, but here and there I knew that without me, He might fail. Remember how I told you aboutContinue reading “BEEN HELPING GOD LATELY?”

CHRISTMAS DAY 2019

“Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.” Matthew 1:23 Everything about Christmas celebration has become so befuddled that one has to wonder— if I were in a situation that exposed me to radio or television for the first timeContinue reading “CHRISTMAS DAY 2019”

A SIGNIFICANT SYMBOL

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 The sound was arresting. Having awakened from a deep sleep, the quietness was being penetrated by the cooing of a doveContinue reading “A SIGNIFICANT SYMBOL”

WISE MEN DONT WANDER

He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him. John 14:21 Wise men don’t wander, but they do wonder; they wonder in the magnificence of the Babe of Bethlehem.Continue reading “WISE MEN DONT WANDER”
