We have in our family a Christmas tradition which has now endured for over sixty years. Our family has always chosen to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus and all related joys of the Christmas season on Christmas Eve day. Some would argue that the “related joys” such as lights, presents, decorations, and all […]

These are increasingly difficult and darkening days. There is an eternal rest for all true believers just ahead, but now, perhaps more than ever before, it’s time for every true Christian to “discern the times”, be serious about their calling and be enlightened, equipped and engaged.
Like the “wolves in sheep’s clothing”, false teachers seem to be among us in an often discomforting close proximity. Under the guise of “ministry” they sneak in amongst the flock, having an outward appearance that’s rather sheep-like but underneath are ravenous predators seeking to devour both the weak and the strong.
We are in need of a shepherd to care for us and Jesus has said he is that Good Shepherd.
Hey Jude, don’t make it bad Take a sad song and make it better (Lennon – McCartney) I’m sure the writers of this well-known Beatles classic did not receive their inspiration from the book of Jude in the Bible. It is interesting and often beneficial however, for us to glean from the secular, things which […]
Here we are in 2015. It seems as though I just got used to writing 2014 on checks and various documents, only to have the year race by, the calendar page flip over, and a new year is upon us!
The unknown stretches out before us. This very day will all too soon see the setting of the sun. There is much that cannot yet be determined and even the remaining fleeting hours of this day are unsure. Amidst the shrouded uncertainty of the future there do, however, remain some “unchangeables.”
All through scripture God speaks to people, often in amazing ways. God spoke to Adam and Eve in the garden. God spoke to Abram and gave him instructions where to live and later in His old age spoke the promise of a child and an inheritance. God told Noah to build a boat. He spoke to Moses in a burning bush. Isaiah overheard God speaking and as a result asked to be sent. Many heard God say, “Thou are my son…” when Jesus was baptized by John. Peter, James and John heard God on the mount of transfiguration. Saul heard God on the road to Damascus. On and on we could go. Down through centuries and up to today many testify of hearing God’s voice.
At this time of year I always am reflective, not only of the past twelve months, but also the years that have come and gone so swiftly. I rejoice in God’s faithfulness to keep me unto Himself, and to use this ministry to touch so many lives, often I’m sure, in spite of myself.
The statement “The End Is Near,” encourages an image of some poor soul on a street corner in a major city like New York. Long messy hair, unshaven, a long wool coat worn on a hot summer day, gloves without fingers and the exposed fingers pointing to the sandwich board sign hung around this street person’s neck proclaiming the stark prediction. Passersby shake their heads in disbelief, more at the appearance of the person than the content of his message
Conclusion: The person looks like some kind of kook so his message must be kooky also, right?
