Right Now VS. After This

Jeff Heaven, Hope, Prophecy Leave a Comment

Every human soul has an immeasurable state of existence awaiting.  Ever since I was a young boy I have allowed my mind to occasionally ponder the concept of forever.  As a grade-schooler I remember telling my father in a sense of frustration that I simply couldn’t get my brain wrapped around it.  I confess today that it is no easier …

Important Christmas Questions

Jeff Love, Salvation, sovereignty

Perhaps one of the most tragic potentials for us who have been set free through faith in Christ is that we might arrive to a place in life where we lose our wonder at our redemption.  To wake up each day and not sense any amazement that the God of Heaven chose us, chased us, secured us and shepherds us…few …

Threatened By The Rival King

Jeff Cultural Observations, Salvation

Not everyone is happy that Christ is being celebrated.  Every year the intolerance to His holy name grows more and more rigid.  Who would have believed that, in our lifetime, America would move to a clear position of hostility towards recognition of the birth of Jesus Christ?  We will celebrate the holidays…but not Jesus Christ. We will welcome a season …

Just How Saved Am I?

Jeff Bible, FAITH, Forgiveness, Salvation

This is for any and all who have bowed their hearts in trust to Jesus Christ: you need to be very careful not to make the following mistake.  If you give in to this particular temptation it is really going to cost you.  Precious components of life such as peace, joy, rest, gratitude, praise and selflessness will be forfeited quickly …

For a while now it has been my desire to seek to encourage you on Monday mornings more so than any other day of the week. Many of you experience a peak in gathering with the family of God on Sundays.  You worship with your brothers and sisters in Christ and spend time in committed service unto God and others.  …

Brand Spanking New

Jeff FAITH, Forgiveness, Hope, Humility, Salvation

I remember clearly that morning.  Leaving work in a raggedy, low-rider truck I made my way out of the parking lot of my workplace.  I turned right and drove a quarter of a mile with trembling hands guiding the steering wheel.  I made another right turn and continued about 200 yards before turning left into the parking lot of my …

An Essential Ingredient

Jeff Cultural Observations, FAITH, General, Humility

Sometimes it does not matter how right we are.  We can have 100% clarity on the objective truth, be skilled at asserting that truth, have a thousand voices saying amen to that truth and, yet, still be completely wrong.  While seeking to welcome the unenlightened masses to the Light of the Gospel we could potentially cause the reverse effect of …

Deborah Samples – When Wisdom Has To Wait

Jeff Bible, Family, Heaven, Humility

We live in a world and amongst a generation of people who are so blind to spiritual wisdom that, when they encounter it, they view it as foolishness. I’m not seeking to be edgy today, just real. Tomorrow I’m officiating in a service where the godliest woman I’ve ever known will be memorialized and later buried. Only a few esteemed …

The Eventual Summons To Return Home

Jeff Bible, Family, General, Hope, Salvation

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.” – Isaiah 43:1 {ESV} As I think of the distinct possibility of earth saying goodbye to one of the finest Christians I ever knew, I think of the joy that will be instantaneously hers.  Deborah Samples is scheduled to have all of her life …

Jeff Bible, Forgiveness, General, Salvation, Spiritual Growth

Let me encourage you to keep on viewing these videos while I’m away on vacation with my family.

Jeff Forgiveness, General, Salvation, Spiritual Growth

Yesterday’s post explained that, while I’m on vacation with my family, I’ll be posting a series of short videos from a helpful ministry called Real Truth Matters. These short videos will focus on the promotion of a false gospel message that has permeated the 21st Century church. If you missed yesterday’s video, just look below and watch it before watching …

My family and I are spending some time together this week on vacation.  I likely won’t be engaging in my normal writing as I  hope that both my body and mind will enjoy some down time and leisure with my precious three.  I’m going to place a video each day on my blog from a website that I am getting …
