FULLY ARMED

Unaware of our enemy, or the armor that they utilize is usually a guarantee that we are about to lose the battle.  Preparations are necessary!  A large amount of Christians “miss the boat” on the victory that awaits them when faltering in that particular arena. The war front lines can be savagely fought, but behindContinue reading “FULLY ARMED”

ADDING/SCATTERING

A large portion of my growing up days was in a house attached to a Lighthouse.  It made for interesting times.  Perhaps the most exciting of times, when a hurricane would “invade” the Island! To describe all of the times would be unnecessary, because there was much that was alike, but not always.  The winds,Continue reading “ADDING/SCATTERING”

WHAT AND WHEN

Years ago, I came across a little pamphlet distributed by The Pocket Testament League.  I share it with you hoping that you will find it helpful.  What to Read When.   You can always order from them from their Web Site. In Sorrow                                            In Danger                                              God Seems Distant                            Discouraged                                         Faith Fails                                              You Are “Blue”                                   Continue reading “WHAT AND WHEN”

ASCENSION

We live in perilous times!  How often I hear that or its equivalent!  It originated in Eden, following the “fall” of Adam and Eve, and has continued to this day.  Most people, with whom we communicate, are quick to equate our current “crisis” as though it was something new.  There is an element of truthContinue reading “ASCENSION”

DO YOU RECALL?

Yesterday, I received a letter from Bermuda that was mailed on May 6th, just two and a half months later.  Of course, this is, like everything else, linked to Covid 19. I could have flown there in less than 24 hours.  Had I actually been a patient of Covid 19, I probably would have beenContinue reading “DO YOU RECALL?”

UNJUSTLY?

Over the years you read of people who have been arrested for crimes that they have reportedly committed.  The “police blotter”, as it was called in yesteryear, suddenly gives you a run down on the crimes that were supposedly committed.  Time slips by while the individual remains incarcerated.  Finally, it makes its way to theContinue reading “UNJUSTLY?”

A PLUMB LINE

Over the years I have thanked the Lord for the men who taught me the importance of a “plumb line”.  Its importance was tested with frequency, especially when involved on construction sites.   Those roof rafters, or studs, had to be exact, or problems galore would show themselves as the job progressed. In thinking about lifeContinue reading “A PLUMB LINE”

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”
