THE SIGNIFICANCE OR IMPORTANCE OF THE TRUTH…

The significance or importance of the truth. Reality: When the truth of God and His Word are diminished, we die. Every truth that is honest and pure was established before the creation of man. The truth did not evolve or mature, like man; it is the central thought and action of its Creator, almighty God. “Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth” (John 17:17). Every truth has originated from the same entity or source, GOD! God is the One that gives the truth its authority and purpose. If we choose to live abundant lives, we must be obedient [Read More…]

ALWAYS DOING WHAT IS PROFITABLE…

  Interesting Concept … Even though I must be busy in my service to the Lord, if I am to accomplish His will in my life, I must learn to wait upon Him.  My every thought and motivation must come from Him. “And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:3-4). The difficulties in life come from [Read More…]

WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW CAN’T HURT YOU…

T There is no statement more foolish or potentially harmful than the statement, “What you don’t know can not hurt you”.  Its deception is the unwanted prize of the ignorant, and its folly, the pattern of a fool.  Ignorance, or the lack of knowledge, is what the enemy uses to deceive and to enslave. Lies and deceptions are the tools of the wicked one; death and destruction are the wages of sin. Unlike the physical realm, in the spiritual kingdom there is no A: B: C: or D. The only answer or solution is Jesus; He is the one we [Read More…]

HERE AND NOW…

In the process of growing we gain responsibility and knowledge to do what is profitable and good. We learn to accept the truth for what it is and to deal with our failures as stepping stones unto a better way and condition. Circumstances, good or bad, are only the criterion we have been given; they are our starting point, the place of our beginning.  They will lead us to a place of truth and prosperity or they will take us down that adverse road of denial and rejection; the choice is ours we are not initially condemned to failure and [Read More…]

THE TRUTH WILL TAKE YOU TO YOUR END…

One day all men will know the truth, whether it is to their eternal glory or to their complete destruction, all men will be given their final reward.   That certain truth we have while here on this earth will determine our eternal future.  To live an eternal life of glory and praise in a heavenly mansion or to be consumed in a pit of fire for an endless time, the choice is ours the choice is now.  We cannot exist without adhering to the truth and to avoid its warnings is to insure our destruction.  God’s Word has said that [Read More…]

UNDERSTAND THE LOVE OF GOD…

It is impossible for me being human to totally understand the love of God.  Wanting to express His total goodness unto others is somehow evasive, and I am frustrated by my lack of dexterity.  How do you make people understand?  How do you make them listen?  I am left with the conclusion that I cannot guarantee understanding and I can never force anyone to listen.  My only purpose, with the help of a loving God, is to express to my best ability the love that He has shown me.  It is not my job to be critical or to criticize.  [Read More…]

LIFE IN PERSPECTIVE… part three

LIFE IN PERSPECTIVE… part three PREFACE: As I write it is my intention to bring praise unto God and to tell this world how much He really loves them and wants to be their God.  There really is nothing that I can say that is a new revelation or that hasn’t been repeated a hundred times before.  God’s Word is not new and God has not changed, that is one of the things about Him that is so wonderful, so important.  What I have learned in the past is just as relative and liberating today as it was when I [Read More…]

ARTIST PROFILE…

Artist Personal Profile… You may be somewhat curious about my music and to answer some of your questions, I have included this short profile.  As you have already guessed I am not a professional, but I simply do what I do because I love doing it and I feel it is what God has called me to do. I am retired and have been doing my music for only about 10 years. I began writing a short time after the death of my mother and I attribute my writing to the influence she had on me.  I have had no [Read More…]

JUST A BIT MORE OF THE TRUTH…

What has anyone lost? What has anyone gained? Nothing! The natural man is still a servant of sin and new rules and regulations will never change it. My initial response to the ruling of our highest court was one of anger and disgust.  These individuals who are considered to be of the best educated and wise, have proven to be ordinary and superficial. How do you look up to betrayal or depend upon those who espouse their own agenda. Those that do not defend the rights and honor of the ones they have sworn to defend? While I was not [Read More…]
