    Our Need for Prayer

    Prayer, as I mentioned last week, is talking with God not to or at Him as some people think. Prayer is having a two-way conversation with God. We don’t actually hear His voice in our heads, as with Old Testament prophets, but we do get answers. When we pray, God is faithful in answering if we are true Christians asking in the right manner, which I’ll get to below. In the beginning Adam and Eve spoke to God in conversations with Him. And, Moses spoke with God at the burning bush and throughout his ordeal with the Pharaoh. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8 ). He…

    How to Know What Christ Wants From You, Part 2

    Last week’s blog gave an overview of how to know what God want you to do for Him, what’s your mission here on earth. It’also important to know what isn’t of God., because distractions exist that will mislead you so that you’re not working on what God has assigned you to do. The first distraction is personal. It’s easy to convince yourself that something you really like to do is your purpose here on earth. That’s most likely true of your vocation. What you do for a living is mostly your decision. It should be something that you have a natural ability for doing and like to do. Then it…

    How to Find God’s Will for Your Life

    I’ve been saying since the beginning of this blog that you need to follow God’s will for your life rather than your own will. But I haven’t addressed the issue of how to figure out what His will is for you. I’m going to address that issue this week and next. This week is only a short overview because I’ve had a stressful week with a lot of things needing my attention. Next week will be a more in depth study of working with God. Here are the pointers for this week: Pray constantly: This is important. Prayer isn’t just talking to God, It’s talking with God. And, it’s not…

    A Warning

    If My people,who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. -2Chronicles 7:14 Sin is rampant in the United States and other countries today. It’s now claimed that we live in a “post-Christian” world, and certainly the US acts that way. We embrace humanism, glorify homosexuality, murder the unborn, elevate whites above other races, even by our President. Our founders wrote our Constitution based on God’s principles as He expressed them to us in the Bible. He even came to us as…

    National Unity

    The United Sates is suffering from several calamities at this time. The pandemic is one, the forest fires are another, and a record number of storms are pounding the Southeastern states. This amount of natural disaster hasn’t plagued this nation in it’s history. And, it’s not getting much better. The weather is cooling off as Fall starts, and now we may well have another round of COVID-19 and the flu on top of that. Many health professionals are urging people to get flu shots now. On top of the natural plagues, the US is becoming divided into two major camps, and a few minor ones, President Trump is perhaps the…

    Where is God?

    Most people think that God is in heaven, which is out in space someplace, or in any case up above us somehow. Certainly, Bible passages talk about God or the Father coming down from heaven, and Jesus came from and returned to heaven., The Holy spirit comes from there. For a long time I thought the same thing. And, this is a problem with witnessing because unsaved people operate on the out of sight, out of mind principal. People tend to ignore, or at least not take seriously, someone or something that is far away from them. Therefore they act differently than they do when someone is near to them.…

    Finding the Light at the End of the COVID Tunnel

    I went through a long ordeal some years ago, and every time I thought I saw the light at the end of the tunnel it turned out to be an on-coming train. That was discouraging. We all are going through a similar ordeal now with the pandemic. We’re hopeful a vaccine will be tested and available soon, but we don’t have one yet, and probably not until next year, we’re told. The only consolation there is that next year is close. The virus isn’t going away. It’s here to stay. It’s going to be like the flu, I think, with no know cure, just a way to manage it. So,…

    Ceasing From Sin

    For as much as Christ has suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin. That you should no longer live the rest of your time in the flesh to the lusts of men but top the will of God. (1 Peter 4:1,2). Peter wrote his first letter as a general letter to the dispersed Christians both Jew and gentile (non Jews) that were spread over a large area. (1Peter 2:10) It was written about 60 AD. from a church in a gentile community, although the named city of Babylon may not be that…

    How to Correctly make America Great Again

    President Trump’s slogan, Make America Great Again hasn’t worked. Instead, he’s acted more like Hitler prior to and during World War Two. And, all the problems he’s projecting for a Biden administration have materialized during his presidency. What’s even more alarming is the intensity of natural disasters that are hitting our country at this time. Christians are recognizing God’s hand in the disasters. Also, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) statistics show the total number of COVID-19 cases in the US as 5,890,532 as of Saturday, August 29, 2020. There have been 181,143 deaths, and 291, and 985 new cases in the last seven days. ABC News said 1,200 students…

    Getting Real

    Misunderstanding reality and living in accordance with that misconception causes all the hate, strife, and other evils in this world. This includes not only your misconceptions but also the false beliefs of other individuals, businesses, government officials and politicians. Some years ago the expression “get real” was a popular way of telling someone he was not in touch with reality, the way things work. It really meant that the user wanted the other person to believe and act according to the way the speaker wished things worked, not how things really work. Everyone has his or her idea of what reality is and how it operates. These viewpoints are subjective.…
