Dates… Dates… Dates… Tomorrow is the end of the world, or not…

Dates… Dates… Dates… Tomorrow is the end of the world, or not…Tomorrow is the end of the world… or not. Photo found in an article by the Washington Post, even large secular media is covering this guy. Harold Camping of Family Radio
says that tomorrow is the end of the world. Using some weird math calculations an one obscure selection scripture ignoring reams of other scripture and higher biblical themes… The man falsely predicted this same event would happen in 1994. However, despite the fact I disagree with his calculations I’m not going to write him off as a total kook… I believe that there is a desire in each of us to not only know that Jesus will return someday… but as these days get worse and worse and we see the evidence that we are in fact living in the last of the last days… we all want to know WHEN?

Lessons from Peters Trip to Cornelius

Acts 10 Peter is called to the house of Cornelius a centurion guard who loved God.  2A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always... 4 ...Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.The first thing that stands out to me here is that his Prayers and Giving stood out to God. If anything stands out to God I should make a point of making it a focus and major in my life.  15And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common. Lord, cleanse me of mindsets that go against your will. How can I come against a person you died to save? How can I not love those you love? Create in me a heart like yours. Your love has been shed abroad in my heart, show me how to let it loose in my life. 45And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.…

Power to Witness

05.06.2011   Acts 1


"6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” 7 And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.8 But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me


The Holy Spirit will come to bring POWER TO WITNESS. The lots cast by Peter regarding the replacement for Judas were the last lots cast to make a decision. The Holy Spirit, not dice, would now move and decide for His Church. It was not until POWER came that Peter became the witness Jesus asked him to become back on that beach in John 21. Truely he was out of line making any decision on a replacement until the Power came.


Power to Witness....
Power to Wintess...
Power to Witness...

This is missing in the church, in my life even to a large extent these days... Power to Witness... Hmm....

I'm Going Fishing!

05.05.2011  John 21

3 Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.”


Fishing was not a hobby or past time for peter. It was like many people today that here in Texas that say they are going fishing and jump into a small boat and cast a line and sit half asleep with a beer and do little to nothing.

Fishing for Peter before he met Jesus was a profession. He owned several boats and servants(Hired Workers) and dropped large nets into the lake to gather many fish and sell them in the market. This was a major deal for Peter. Essentiallly he had denied Jesus at His trial, and now Jesus was raised from the Dead but not around much. The ministry he was serving was now dispersed and what was there to do? Peter decides that he's going to stop pursuing the ministry and the big ideas he thought he had. He's obviously mis understood the intentions of Jesus a few times. He thought there would be a kingdom but there isn't yet. He is confused about the purpose of the life and ministry of Je…
