The Presence of God

There is a difference between prayer and being in God’s presence.  While the fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much, healing takes place in his presence.  Many of the people healed by Jesus had prayed for healing before they came into His presence where healing took place.  There are exceptions to every thing but when it comes to healing, being in His presence is the best place to start.There are many ways to come into God’s presence.  Taking time out to sit quietly with the Bible is a…See More

It’s a World without Sin, everyone is ok

No need for Grace, from what people say

There’s no Hell to go to, no need to repent

it’s a World without Sin, a world without lent.

It’s a World without sin, the devil’s retired

there’s no one to tempt us, his imps have been fired

There’s no one way to God, Oprah has said

In John 14:6 Jesus was simply misread

It’s a World without Sin, we’re all children of God

Ephesians 4 or The Five Fold Ministry

Posted on 9th mo. 15, 2017 at 3:30pm 15 Comments

Raised Catholic (Elementary and High School and Catholic Fraternity in college and post grad degree at a Catholic college) I recognize the weakness of the hierarchal structure of the Catholic Church.  However, I also recognize the wisdom of those in power.  They are very good at discerning the gifts of their priests and assigning them titles and roles that make the best use of those gifts.  Even when they disenfranchise an entire sex from participation in management, they do a very good job…

What do I deserve?

Posted on 9th mo. 11, 2017 at 10:01am 0 Comments

I read a comment on FB about the DACA situation that said "everyone that is in this country deserves to be here" and it struck a nerve.  Have we become so filled with a sense of self-worth that we think we actually deserve the things we have?  I was born in the US but I know I am not more deserving to have been born here than anyone else born on that day in India, Thailand, Mexico or Syria.  I am blessed with a great relationship with God through Jesus but I know I don't deserve that…

Life and Chess

Posted on 9th mo. 3, 2017 at 11:30am 0 Comments

I watched a movie last nite where the main character,  embittered by tragedy, posed that familiar question: "If there's a God why is there so much tragedy in the world?".  After posting an earlier blog on the shedding of blood my mind found itself with thoughts of God who knows all things - past, present and future - contemplating how best to achieve His goal (I will not, at least at this time, presume to know what that goal was or is) and the game of chess came immediately to mind.  In…

Hello James, I just want to let you know that your thoughts about my" rantings" and my lack of "integrity" came to my email but did not post on the website. I appreciate your thoughts on my response to Micah's post.

Hi James, Early this morning received email with a statement from statement from you reading:

"I think you have to define Presence as you understand it before others can evaluate it."

However, I do not see it on the post itself. I just wanted to let you know I am willing to respond to your statement.
