Memorial Day 2011

"I believe the best way to honor those who have died in war, both combatants and civilians, is to work to abolish war. We must end the killing and suffering caused by war."

Quote by Michael T. McPhearson, former field artillery officer in the 24th Mechanized Infantry Division during Desert Shield/Desert Storm, also known as Gulf War I and former executive director of Veterans For Peace

1965


"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust."
The Lord Jesus Christ
Matthew 5:43-45

Looking for That Blessed Hope

In spite of the false claims of Harold Camping about yesterday being judgment day, let us not loose sight of what the Bible says in Titus 2 :

"For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee."

Scripture is clear: no man knows the day nor the hour of Christ's return. So whether we die or the Lord returns, we each need to be ready TODAY.

So are you ready? If yes, great! But if not, why not? Friend, now is time to get ready and stay ready.

Mat 24:35,36 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall…

Let No Man Deceive You

Image
Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
Mar 13:5 And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any [man] deceive you:
1Cr 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;
1Jo 3:7 Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.

A dear friend sent me this link to a recent podcast by Zeph Daniels and I found it to be quite good.

"And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth." 
Genesis 1:26

"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:"
Amos 8:11

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
John 1:1

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."
John 1:14

CROSSING AMERICA: Morgan Strong carries her cross along Hwy. 98 and 30A

Morgan Strong attracts attention while wheeling her 12-foot wooden cross across Hwy. 98. For obvious reasons, it's a conversation starter.

Strong explained last week at South Walton's Grayton Beach, where she sat in the shade resting her tired feet that she is on a mission from God.

She came to South Walton from Oklahoma City, and has hauled her cross a total of 850 miles with 3,150 more to go.

A year ago, Strong hadn't ever explored outside of her hometown. It wasn't until last year when she made a plan to leave everything she knew behind and venture off to answer God's calling that she found herself and America.

Strong is hiking from Oklahoma to Philadelphia where she plans to meet with a ministry called The Simple Way. Strong said her adventure is no easy task, but she is determined.

Q. What Can Wash Away My Sin?

Image
A. Nothing but the blood of Jesus


Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.

Hbr 10:19-22 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And [having] an high priest over the house of God; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Hbr 12:24 And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than [that of] Abel.

Hbr 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

Hbr 13:20,21 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Make you perfect in every good work…

By Frank Luba and Cheryl Chan, The Province May 8, 2011


Albert and Rita Chretien left Penticton at about 6 a.m. on Mar. 19 and were last seen crossing the border into the U.S. at Oroville just over an hour later.

The day before she was found, Penticton mother Rita Chretien felt she was either going to die or be rescued after being stranded for 49 days on a remote forest road on the Nevada-Idaho border.

Chretien, 56, was ready to either “go home to be with her Saviour or to be rescued,” said her son, Raymond, on Sunday.

“She was prepared and she had a clear indication there would be something on Friday,” he said.

Hunters stumbled upon Chretien on Friday, just as her premonition had sugg…

'Soul Surfer' Bethany Hamilton rides a big-screen wave
By Tom Hoffarth on April 8, 2011 6:00 AM

In real life, Bethany Hamilton is among the top women's surfers the world.

In reel life, her story, "Soul Surfer," which hit theatres today, would rank among any sport's top comeback flicks of all time. Not even Hollywood could mess up this script.

More than seven years ago, before dawn on Halloween morning, she had her left arm taken off by a 14-foot tiger shark while they were both sharing the waters off the shore of Kauai, Hawaii.

"When can I surf again?" the 13-year-old asked after her emergency surgery.

She returned almost immediately, and began to spread the word of her story, in hopes of helping others overcoming obstacles put in front of…

May 2, 1611 King James Authorized Bible First Published

Image
400 years ago TODAY, the King James version of the Bible was first published.

As a small child, my father gave me a King James Bible that he bought while working on the movie 'The Ten Commandments' in Egypt which I still have but it was hard for me to read.

And it wasn't until after I became born-again (read John 3), that I could understand any of it!

Then over the years, I started reading many of the modern versions: New International, New American Standard, Good News for Modern Man, Amplified, Living Bible, etc etc.

However, in 2005 while living in Berlin, Germany, as a missionary, my eyes were opened to the needless changes and removal of words/verses in these modern versions thus watering down the diety of Christ. Stunned by this discovery, I tossed them all and returned to the King James version.

Now most everyday, I read at least one chapter and just like our bodies need physical food, our soul needs spiritual food. Reading the Scriptures brings great comfort and h…
