About Me

My photo
I was graciously saved from charismatic confusion and catholicism tradition unto Jesus alone by John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me" which I read in a Jack Chick tract given me from a Christian friend who I helped at Gold's Gym for almost 5 years. He gave me the tract which I read at lunch. It was called "This Was Your Life". At the end I broke into a cold sweat because of heavy conviction that what I just read I was guilty of and knew I was in trouble. After reading another called "Last Rites" I prayed to God to forgive me and Jesus to save me because I didn't want to go to hell but go to Heaven one day. Jesus knew I could not save myself so he died on that cross for me. Now I give out the Chick tracts, gospel movies, and Biblical archeology newspapers so that God may be glorified in me through His Son Jesus, Messiah. Don't ever give up on your family and friends you pray for because his Word doesn't return void. And one day, you may hear God say unto you "..Well done thou good and faithful servant:..enter thou into the joy of thy Lord" Matthew 25:21,23 Amen

Welcome All Who Seek to Know What God Is Doing In These Last Days!
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man...Luke 21:36 And in Acts 2:17-21 It says "And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before that great and notable day of the Lord come: And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved."

Dog on a Leash

Often days during the week, when I come home after work, I will be welcomed with my overwhelmingly happy and excited dog named Buddie to greet me at the door. He is a cutie while he wags his tail back and forth like a whip when he sees me.

During the day, when I am away, Buddie has the freedom to roam where he wants and when he wants in the house and outside within bounds when we are with him. One of his greatest anticipation of the day is when I mention "walk?" His ears perk up, his tail starts swaying, and his eyes get big because he knows the highlight of his day is coming.

When we get ready to walk, I put Buddie in a harness and snap the leash. The leash allows me to dictate the direction we will go or not go. It is according to my will that I lead him, though he is with me and near me within a limited range of 10 feet.

The thought hit me, wow, here is Buddie, when on a leash, limited in his freedom in direction and what he can or can not do according to my will, but he is the happiest pup during this time and I for him! Know why, he achieves more freedom than just the bounds of the house when he submits to the leash and I lead him to the outside neighborhood. He can seek, explore and find friends and other treasures that he will not get on his own, in other words his joy increases by submission to my will.

The lesson for me was, I need to get back in the leash and submit and allow the Lord to direct my steps, let him lead and not myself, calling upon and waiting patiently for him(Psalm 37) and his presence in my heart will continue to provide the joy that this world can not fill. He puts those beneficial bounds on my life, for my good, though I may be limited in my own understanding(Proverbs 3:5,6) trust him as the Good Shepherd leadeth his sheep for there is freedom in submission! Amen

Bible Memorization

Topic is Soul Winning in our walk:

Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.

Matthew 28:19-20 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Proverbs 11:30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

How is your soul winning this month, this year?
