Destroyed From Within


Sitting here this morning thinking of the things in America. I am amazed. That the voices of divisive ignorance are so loud. I am astounded. That there are so many who agree with this divisiveness. They say yes to the “spinners”. The leaders do not fear death, they fear the volume of stupidity.

Still, the destroyer is not satisfied. For America still has soundness in her bones.

It is like the garden that was planted is being overrun with fools whose hands are full of seeds from weeds. What they are planting is not edible and it surely chokes out the food.

I just shake my head in dismay. The streets are becoming populated with screaming insanity. The homes are divided before the child is born. Righteous wisdom is refused.

What then is to be the outcome?

Our Violent Preoccupation


No man is capable of doing the things we say are expected of him, anymore than we ourselves can produce a crop of pure righteousness.

Why then do you ridicule your brother? Why do you say he is worthless? Isn’t it because you yourself can’t have what you want? Isn’t it because, in your own wicked eye, you perceive that he has taken something from you?

Have you been to truth? Have you been to the truth that devastates every man? Have you tasted your own condemnation? How many things have you denied your fellow man? How many things have you robbed from others simply because you exist?!

I propose your mouth would slam shut at the revealing of your own sin! That day is most assuredly coming.

The truth of Christ calls out in the streets, in your home, and in your own soul. Yet who will listen voluntarily? Who will listen until he rocks back-and-forth, recognizing his own helplessness?

Do not say you love God while you bash your brother’s soul against the rocks!

I write this as one of you. If Our God had not convicted me of my sins and taught me what is true, like you I would have nothing to say. But because I have seen what is true, (and am devastated) I am compelled to join Him in crying out in the streets. I am nothing, Christ is ALL.

Go to God in prayer. Confess your own failings. If you think you have none, ask him to show you. He is happy to reveal as much as you can stand.

I guarantee, any man to whom his sin is shown will drive his own face to the dust with remorse. His boasting, his hatred for his brothers, his sense of self righteousness, and his expectations of perfection from others will diminish radically.

Stop your ridiculous onslaught against your brother, humble yourself before God, and receive the truth.

If not today, when? Our days are numbered. The sum of them will come. Who do you want to be? Stop being preoccupied with your brother’s failings. Take a long hard look at your own.

Seek HIM!


Fake news, worthless ranting, irritating prophecy, spiritual carpetbaggers? Judge for yourself, the nature of what is today.

It is man’s worthless idea that the earth should be full of peace and tranquility. Look around, has it ever been true? Christ even told his select people that in this world they would have great trouble. How should it be better for those who will not except Christ’s Authority over them?

As bad as things are in the world today, it WILL get greatly worse.

Do not wait until you are face-to-face with The Living God.

Pretending Means Nothing


You cannot be a rich man simply because you know rich men exist. You cannot be a hero simply because you know there are men who are heroes.

It is hideously foolish to boast of something we are not. And simply because our ancestors and friends were something, it does not make us so.

You cannot be something while what you own is nothing. The tally never lies. Those who can’t count can be fooled. But there is One who counts perfectly.

You cannot be a blazing Christian unless your soul is blazing with the things of the Lord God Almighty. At best you can only be a decent citizen of this world.

The judgment of God never sleeps. He knows those who are his. He knows what kind of people they are, for he has made them so. He knows what they endure. He knows those who struggle for his Holy sake.

We can say anything we want about ourselves. Truth either bears witness for us or stands as a mighty wall against us.

Prime time to make a proper assessment.

Vegas Everywhere


Vegas, is there some mystically important to that geographical place? They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

I’ve got news for everyone, what happens anywhere in this world accompanies us to the throne of the Most high God. Not one particle of dust in this world will offer us immunity, no matter what we call it and no matter where it is.

If you want immunity, live the life of Christ.

8. “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9. Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy to gloom. 10. Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.”

Christ is not a box to be checked. He is a life to be lead.

An Imaginary Friend


Close your eyes. Imagine that your house is perfectly clean. Keep them closed long enough, imagine hard enough, and when you open them you will believe it is clean. Imagination is powerful enough to destroy reality.

Imagine that you are a Christian. Keep your eyes closed to the reality of the things you do. And when you open your eyes, before The living God's Christ, you will believe that you have been a Christlike one all your life.

How many live their religion in the realm of imagination? The sunrise is not imaginary. Neither is the Son, nor He in us.
