Duality of Man

Image
Very few people will ever become ‘well known’ or household names. But many folks still want to do allthey can to add some sparkle of celebrity to their own names. The payoff can be real — the more famous someone becomes the more customers, clients or likes they’ll draw; the bigger the draw the more cultural notoriety. The American Success Prototype: - Improve Yourself - Push your "Brand" - Click “Like” — Get others to follow you
Christ-followers.  I suspect that since you’re continuing to read this article, you maybe wondering how to balance your social status with your Christian beliefs. Maybe you’re considering, how you can be more successful spiritually and to a lesser degree, socially.  The Jesus Kingdom Exemplar: - Deny yourself - Take up your cross -Follow Me

The prophet Daniel wrote: Many people who have already died will live again.Some of them will wake up to have life forever, but some will wake up to find shame and disgrace forever.

So Simple

Image
As the deer longs for streams of water, so I long for you, O God. I thirst for God, the living God.[1]
Human beings are complex. God designed us with the amazing ability to reason and logic and do what others in creation can not do: speak, laugh and believe in a Divine Creator© Our ability to think rationally is a gift we should be grateful for, but this ability sometimes causes us to take the simplest of principles and complicate them to the point of becoming ineffective. I find it amazing how we tend to over complicate things, especially theological things. It doesn’t have to be that way. ‘A minute to learn, a lifetime to master’ easily describes the the good news of Jesus. There is a simplicity to the gospel, so that even a child can comprehend it. There is also depth and infinite richness to the gospel, which means we can spend the rest of our lives learning, discussing, and applying it’s truths.[2] St Jerome said it this way: “The Scriptures are shallow enough for a babe to come and d…

The Art of Idleness

Image
Irish poet and playwright Oscar Wilde said:  ‘..To do nothing at all is the most difficult thing in the world…’
I don’t believe that our lives as a Christian can be well lived in idleness. How often do needs around us go unmet because of our failure to do; to react; to trust God? I continually see an American Christian faith, neutral and shy of radical super-natural belief. It should be crying out: we can make a difference! “…for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”[1]
The New Testament knows nothing of a “faith” that ignores needs, closes eyes to injustice, and keeps one’s mouth closed to the truth of the gospel. We are after all, not just Christians, but ‘truth-tellers’. Isn’t that why we're regenerated and restored?I’m convinced that our Holy Spirit infused faith is not a state of mind or…

Some Halloween Thoughts

Some Halloween Thoughts "...If you haven’t already guessed, I tend to agree with those who seek to redeem rather than reject Halloween – even though I am understanding of and sympathetic toward those who hold another point of view and would not wish to cause any offense..."  ~ Bruxy Cavey

Revenge

Image
“…O Eternal God of vengeance, O God who sets things right, shine upon us.Rise, O Judge who presides over the earth, and pronounce Your sentence upon the proud. Give them what they deserve! How long, O Eternal One, how long will the guilty revel in their prosperity? …”PS 94:1-3
In the Hebrew Scriptures we read, no less than thirty-two times from Genesis to Nahum, about vengeance and revenge. Yet in the Gospels, in the teachings of Christ, we read time and again about forgiveness. What gives? Did God have a change of heart in the 400 years between Malachi and Matthew?
Life offers us plenty of opportunities to feel unforgiving, our stories each hold room to prove this point. The trouble is that a lack of forgiveness does more damage to us than we maybe realize. Forgiveness is not forgetting or walking away from accountability or condoning a hurtful act; it's the process of taking back and healing our lives so we can truly live~ B Brown When we don't forgive, we grow hardened, untrus…

Kingdom of God

Image
In your own words, can you describe  what the kingdom of God might look like:
A new heaven and new earth? A sea that is no more? A Holy City coming down from heaven?[1]

The kingdom of God looks like Jesus! Jesus healing the sick; Feeding the poor; Forgiving the sinner; Giving hope to the hopeless; Raising the spiritually dead.
Selah
“...behold, the kingdom of God is in the midst of you…”[2]

Book of Revelation

Image
Revelation. Come on. A story about a guy who claims to receive a message from God about the end of the world? A message that includes visions of angels of destruction, seven headed beasts, and rivers of blood? You're not the only one who suspects there's something a little trippy about the last book of the Bible.
Some of the early church bishops didn't like Revelation, they thought it was too hard to understand: Martin Luther said that it was "neither apostolic or prophetic," Thomas Jefferson thought Revelation was, well...too weird, and George Bernard Shaw called it "a peculiar record of the visions..” Let's figure out what’s the deal with Revelation …#pkes
