What a Friend we Have in Jesus

January 7, 2018

I would like to thank my friend Kiki Shalom for sending this to me via Facebook. Kiki had a difficult year in 2017. He was forced out of his own African country because of war and the money that he did have was stolen by thieves. He spent the last part of the year as a refugee in a neighboring country. He is a devoted Christian and he often sends inspirational things like this to encourage others. He was very sad that he had to leave his home and he was very honest about his feelings on Facebook. He found himself helping others in his new “home.” His reliance on God’s Word is a wonderful example. If you can find him on Facebook, you will see him share some of the struggle he had this year. You can also see wonderful Christians encouraging him as he has so encouraged others.

Important note: Since posting this, I have learned that Kiki is back in his home country of Burundi. He seems much happier.


How to get saved!

December 30, 2017

My blogging friend, Maria, of “The Pilgrim’s Progress Revisited..” blog posted this yesterday. I think it is a very good presentation of the Gospel message. I think Lee Poskey is from the Southern U.S. I have lived here for 20+ years and am thankful that God brought me here. Anyway, this message is solid as it is based solely on God’s Word.

Until the link at the bottom is changed, please click on “THE GOSPEL” at the top of this blog to see this video.


God Incarnate, the End of Fear

September 24, 2017

What a wonderfully uplifting post by Sherry, of the “He Hath Said” blog. Be encouraged by the song “God Will Take Care of You” and by the “Prince of Preacher’s” sermon entitled “God Incarnate the End of Fear!”

He Hath Said

You who are King of kings and Lord of lords, we worship You. Before Jehovah’s awful throne we bow with sacred joy.

All My Soul Needs ~

Another gem by Deborah Ann…

CHRISTian poetry ~ by deborah ann

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want nothing more
then the joy and glory
for me He has in store.

He satisfies my thirst,
my hunger He fills
my anxiety and fears
He calms and stills.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
I want not a thing
for my heart is set
on the peace He’ll bring.

He is my saving Light,
He is my High Rock
I’m so blessed to be
a part of His flock.

The Lord is my Shepherd,
there’s nothing I lack
my faith in Him is all . . .
He want’s me to give back!

I shall not want.”

Was America Founded to be Secular?

July 4, 2017

I applaud PragerU for articulating the truth of America’s history. The men quoted here weren’t all necessarily Christians but they knew how important religion and particularly Judeo-Christian beliefs were to the establishment and continued welfare of the nation. Their words are as true today as they were when they spoke them over two hundred years ago.

“There brake He the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.”

“There brake He the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.”
Psalm 76:3

Our Redeemer’s glorious cry of “It is finished,” was the death-knell of all the adversaries of his people, the breaking of “the arrows of the bow, the shield, and the sword, and the battle.” Behold the hero of Golgotha using his cross as an anvil, and his woes as a hammer, dashing to shivers bundle after bundle of our sins, those poisoned “arrows of the bow;” trampling on every indictment, and destroying every accusation. What glorious blows the mighty Breaker gives with a hammer far more ponderous than the fabled weapon of Thor! How the diabolical darts fly to fragments, and the infernal bucklers are broken like potters’ vessels! Behold, he draws from its sheath of hellish workmanship the dread sword of Satanic power! He snaps it across his knee, as a man breaks the dry wood of a fagot, and casts it into the fire. Beloved, no sin of a believer can now be an arrow mortally to wound him, no condemnation can now be a sword to kill him, for the punishment of our sin was borne by Christ, a full atonement was made for all our iniquities by our blessed Substitute and Surety. Who now accuseth? Who now condemneth? Christ hath died, yea rather, hath risen again. Jesus has emptied the quivers of hell, has quenched every fiery dart, and broken off the head of every arrow of wrath; the ground is strewn with the splinters and relics of the weapons of hell’s warfare, which are only visible to us to remind us of our former danger, and of our great deliverance. Sin hath no more dominion over us. Jesus has made an end of it, and put it away forever. O thou enemy, destructions are come to a perpetual end. Talk ye of all the wondrous works of the Lord, ye who make mention of his name, keep not silence, neither by day, nor when the sun goeth to his rest. Bless the Lord, O my soul.

C.H.Spurgeon
