From Grandpa Ernie to ALL I Know and Love.


The God who made you is the God who was broken for you.

He is the God who cries tears over you.

True peace is resting within the protection of someone greater than you.

Go find your quiet place, call on HIS name, He will hear you. Then wait quietly…

it will be worth it, because when the answer comes the invisible God

will become real to you in a greater way. Then when you receive your answer…be still…

and know that HE is YOUR GOD.


My Daily Prayer is that YOU realize before it’s too late, that JESUS CAME

Listen closely, can you hear HIM?

JESUS doesn’t shout HE Whispers your name.

When HE calls you UP to meet HIM in the Air, you will find that your life


LISTEN to the SON of GOD

listen to the Son of God

While there is still time and you have breath…

LISTEN to the SON of GOD 

  1. The Church asks… The Lord:

Matthew 7: 23 “Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, will enter the kingdom of heaven. Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform miracles?

…and then I will declare to them, I never knew you, depart from me, you who practice lawlessness.”

  1. The Lord asks… You:

Matthew 16:15, “But who do YOU say that I am?     And Peter said, You are the Christ the Son of the Living God!”.

Luke 18:8 “When the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on the earth?” Whose Voice are You Listening To? God said… “This is My SON…Listen to HIM!

Jesus came to Earth to save sinners. Jesus is the ultimate evangelist. Your only purpose here in this life is to come to know Him as your personal savior. And then you are to get into the battle for the hearts and minds of lost people.

Remember what the Bible says about the unbelievers, and have compassion.

“The god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving, that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

 They are “futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart is darkened” (Romans 1:21).

 They are “dead in their trespasses and sins”; they walk “according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience”; and they are “by nature children of wrath” (Ephesians 2:1-3).

 Many people attend a church…Few are committed to being the church. Throughout time it has always been about the MANY and the FEW , the TARES and the WHEAT, the WIDE ROAD and the NARROW ROAD.

GOD help us consider the wonder of it all; that JESUS determined that HE would rather go to Hell on our behalf, than live in Heaven without us.


His Joy is that He finally will come to fulfill His promise to save you from yourself if you turn to HIM in Faith.

My Joy is that He chose to come for me. He comes for all those who take the time to seek the Truth with “all our heart, mind and strength.” For if you choose to seek Him you will find Him and He will give you faith and strength for this journey called life.

And when this life ends He will be there to greet you if you know HIM as your Savior. HE will wipe away all your tears, put His arms around you and show you the new home He has made especially for you to enjoy for eternity.

Why, because He promised! And God never lies.

May you find joy in the assurance of your Salvation. To know in your heart of hearts beyond a shadow of doubt, that you know Him as your Savior. That you will finally understand that your name, which has been pre-written in eternity past into Gods book of Life has now been transcribed into the Lambs Book of Life by your acceptance of Christ’s death on the Cross for your sins.

Christ’s death in exchange for your death…He died that you might have ETERNAL LIFE in HEAVEN. As a Believer in Yeshua-Jesus as Lord you now have a partner to help you live life. The Holy Spirit will then reside in you. He will give you a new heart, a new conscience, a newly energized soul and a new will.

So live your life for Him. Live life boldly in His strength. You will not fail. He will set you before all people as a living stone that is part of the True Church, the Ecclesia, the called out ones so you can point the way to the glorious future that awaits all believers in Yeshua the SON of GOD.

May the Almighty God, The Ancient of Days, the Lord God of Israel and His Church guard your heart and mind and soul, by the power of His indwelling Holy Spirit!

May the Holy Angels sent to protect you encircle your life, protecting all those you love and cherish as you go forth and follow the command of Yeshua to take your place in the Battle of the Ages.

The Battle for Truth….His Truth…Till He Comes Again.

This is the Promise of the Living God to all His children…to all those precious in His sight…that He is still on the Throne and He is involved in every detail of your life. He knew you before the foundations of the earth were formed, and He called you into existence in eternity past. He will hold you in the palm of His hand until the day He takes you home to be with HIM in the future.

We are creatures of time…created by God for eternity… Today we live from one God Moment to another…in eternity we will live IN THE MOMENT… forever with God. May HIS Joy and HIS Shalom fill all the days of your life as you live to fulfill HIS purposes for your life.

My Daily Prayer:

“There is no me only Him. I have no will but to do His will only. I trust not in myself but in His Love and care for me.

I receive all things from His hand and am glad and rejoice in His mercies that are new every day I live here.

I am yours and you are mine….and yet I will wait upon you….I will be still and listen…keep me humble… me….uphold me…not my will but yours be done through me.”


Remember Him and HE Will HONOR YOU

Remember Him1

Genesis 2:7
Then the LORD God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.  Psalms 103:14 He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust.

I for one have never even considered the view of Angels about anything. Yet you and I know they exist and they have witnessed it all. The Bible says they are anxious to look into the wonder of our Salvation, and that they rejoice in Heaven over the coming to faith of just one new believer.

When I think of the Holy Angels I am in AWE of such creatures that our GOD had created before us. Then I think of us. Earthen Vessels, so fragile, so weak, so confused not understanding the One Who MADE US. We have His very Words on the subject, we are accountable, we are without excuse to know HIM and the Plan that HIS-Story is bringing now to an End.

I am humbled by the realization of how we were created. This Scripture says it all… “What is man that you are mindful of him?”

We have 3 important responsibilities as we live our lives before the FACE of GOD. We must always REMEMBER HIM and HIS Mighty Works throughout HIS-Story. We are called to STAND ALONE for HIM among the Fragile Clay Pots that still do not know HIM, but continually MOCK HIM. And we are to SHARE Our Salvation Story, planting the seeds that will produce REPENTANCE in those we love, at the Foot of HIS CROSS.

The Birth of Our Savior JESUS, fulfilled the ancient mystery of the coming Redeemer spoken of throughout the Old Testament Messianic Prophecies.  Jesus took on Flesh, and Manna became Man as HE walked onto the pages of human history and took his place within the ancient story, the place of the Anointed One, the Christ, the Messiah, The SON of GOD.

The Messiah has come. He came as a Lamb to be slain for YOU.  Soon He will come again for those of us who look for His Coming. This time He comes as the Lion of Tribe of Judah…our conquering King, to take back what belongs to HIM ALONE, the City of GOD, JERUSALEM and HIS…planet Earth and ALL the Children HIS FATHER promised HIM from Eternity Past.

Our lives are filled with distractions and we tend to get wrapped up in our world and all its stuff. We forget about Gods greatest gift to us. The wise men sought out “He who has been born King of the Jews”. They came to bow the knee to the Holy One of Israel and the world. They came because centuries before a man called Daniel honored His GOD within a pagan society and planted seeds that the Holy Spirit watered and Pagans became BELIEVERS.

I hope all of you take the time to be still and listen and know that JESUS is Emmanuel. JESUS IS GOD. The ONE who WAS, and IS, and IS TOO COME. We are a people called to remember both His Birth and His Cross. One event could not happen without the other. The two events together guarantee the third event…His Return and Reign as the KING of ETERNITY.

Blessed are those who are invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb.

“Then I saw a new Heaven and a new Earth…And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, Now the dwelling of God is with men, and He will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away. He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Revelation 21:1, 3-5.

We were all made for One Person and One Place. Jesus is the Person. Heaven is the Place.

There is a statement by Jesus from a scene recorded in Revelation 3 vs 5. Jesus said that HE will confess your name before His FATHER and before His Angels. Can you imagine that? Jesus will come for you and take you by the hand and lead you between columns of myriads of holy angels.

Up, the stairs of light, continuing up amongst the cheering of the great cloud of witnesses of those that have gone before you throughout the ages: up to stand before the very throne of Almighty GOD. Then Jesus will say to HIS Father, I want you to meet one of mine…One who was not ashamed of MY NAME.

If you have not accepted JESUS as your SAVIOR and LORD, then you have no time to waste. Please take HIS outstretched hand and let Him take you home while you live.

“For the hour is coming when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God…and those who hear will live.” If you are not saved you will not be able to hear HIS VOICE. All you will hear for Eternity will be the Sound of Silence.

In the Beginning

WordPsalm 102:25

“In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.”

The very first sentence of the Bible is very precious to me. In my early quest to know God I listened to many Pastors, Teachers, Family Members, Friends, Co-Workers. All had a view based on their own experiences.

But experiences and opinions have nothing to do with who God IS. God has revealed HIMSELF to us only within His recorded words contained in the Holy Bible. I appreciated the input of many, but have come to respect and trust only the pure Word of God.

In the beginning of my journey I heard the word Apologetics. I thought why would there be a category based on apologizing for the word of God. I was ignorant and immature in the Faith. Later I understood that the word Apologetics meant the study of how to defend your faith in an ever-increasing hostile environment.

As a Believer I have found my greatest passion is to learn how to defend my faith. The more I have studied, the more I have tested my faith in battle the more I have understood beyond any doubt… that without the Judeo/Christian Bible we would have no Idea, and no Revelation of who God is. Man on his own could never know who God is. Instead God has chosen to reveal Himself in only ONE Book. This book is a gift kept pure throughout the centuries of mankind’s earthly journey. This book will remain as a witness to the love, compassion, mercy and grace of our God for the coming epochs of eternity to the redeemed of all ages.
Also, every UN-Saved person will be condemned by the same book to an eternity without the Love of God as they stand before HIM in silence.

The Bible is the Autobiography of God in which He has revealed both Himself, humanities ultimate death sentence, His chosen Messiah / Redeemer / Savior, and the detailed history of mankind’s past, present and future. As I have said before, you are part of the Bibles Pre-written History; because you are part of mankind.

The question is whether you will be part of the continuing history of the Son of God. For the history of man is coming to a close. But the history of the Son of God is just beginning. All history is …HIS story and YOU are written on its pages for better or for worse.

The Bibles beginning account of Creation is as much historical fact as are the accounts of the people, places and events recorded in it. The Bible is unique in that it is the only book of its kind that uses pre-recorded history (prophecy), to substantiate that it is written by God through the inspiration of both the Jewish Prophets and Jewish Apostles.

Today we live by faith rather than by sight. It’s difficult for most of us to do this. But God has given us a mind to think and reason with. It is my hope and prayer that you will be able to engage your mind and think thru the defendable prophetic and historical facts of Scripture.

When you do this, you will understand that:

Faith is trust based on evidence…We choose to believe.

GOD BECAME A MAN …so HE could rescue “Some of us” that Believe.

No one has been left out of His invitation to come to Him…not even you.

The Bible IS the autobiography of God.

Yeshua / Jesus when He died on the Cross said “It is Finished”…but it is by NO Means the end of the story!

The “Greatest Story Ever Told” is about New Beginnings, a new Creation, a new Universe, a new Earth that will join with Heaven…and a new You.

Salvation is not about mans religion, but about a Personal Relationship between you and the SON of GOD.

“God has planted eternity in the hearts of all men”…if you but seek HIM and understand you will gain the assurance of your Salvation.

God is collecting all of His tears and all of humanities tears in a bottle. In the end there will be a new beginning. For now God sheds tears over you. Soon when He comes again there will be no more tears.

The fire in Gods eyes will have evaporated all the tears HE has shed over wayward people throughout time and history.

God gave us all free will. Everyone will go to the place they have chosen…He will grant their wishes forever.

You cannot pick and choose what you want to believe from Gods word. If you do then I question your faith and the road you are on.

To all who never believed the foundational statement by God when He wrote “In the Beginning God”…then you must question every word after that statement.
As you begin to question you will find that you have spent your life building your house of faith on shifting sand and not the rock foundation of Faith in God and His literal Word to us. For you, His Mercy and Grace will be gone…as He comes back only in Judgment.

But if you know Him and have a personal relationship with Him, and believe in the complete council of God; then He comes to you in Song, with a smile in His heart that will light up your heart forever. “He who was seated on the throne said I am making everything new! Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

“Look to Me ALL you ends of the earth! For I AM God and there is no other”

Fear No man…but Fear God.

Tears of the FATHER at the CROSS of HIS SON

Good Friday, something to think about.
Excerpt from one of my Easter Church Messages called Tears of Two Fathers.


My child God said to me. I wanted to tell you personally what the Crucifixion of My Son meant to me. You have children and grandchildren and I know you love them. I know that you would do all you could to protect them from harm and that you would gladly take upon yourself their death. I know this because you were created in my image with the ability to Love.

I know that if men took your child and beat him with whips that ripped both flesh and bone from his back…that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to carry a beam of heavy wood down the street as people swore at him, mocking him, and spitting on him… that you could not be restrained.

I know if men forced your child to lie down on that cross and then drove nails through his feet and hands to hold him there…that you could not be restrained. Could you Ernie? The Lord asked softly…no Lord I said quietly.

I stood and watched as they did all those things to my Son. I stood there not for His sake but for yours, because He took that punishment not for His sake but for yours….I honored you through His Pain. But Ernie, when Jesus…MY SON cried out …MY GOD…MY GOD…WHY HAVE YOU FORSAKEN ME?

That was more than I could bear, so I turned away and cried uncontrollably. My Son had wept over Jerusalem; and now I wept over my Son. Yes, I could not look upon the Worlds Sins that MY Son was bearing, but even more than that, if I had looked at HIM at the moment HE said those words…I knew in my heart …That I could not be restrained!

Ernie…I wanted you and those that say they love my Son, to know that even for the Joy set before both HIM and I…the Cross was the most difficult thing either of us have gone through.”

Have YOU ever given any thought to the tears Jesus will wipe from your eyes? Why am I going to be crying before Him? Maybe because as hard as I tried while here on Earth encased in this broken vessel of clay, the motives of my heart have always been tinged with pride.

Maybe because in my own way I too have Mocked God by trying to blend into the sewage around me like a Chameleon instead of standing alone for HIM?

Maybe because I haven’t taken His command to share the Gospel serious enough and He will show me the hundreds of times I could have made a difference in someone’s life by planting a seed for the Holy Spirit to water.

I will stand before Him looking into His Eyes filled with Holy fire and use words to give an account of the life He gave me to live out before HIM. He will then show me the times He had given me words to speak in the power of the HOLY SPIRIT, but I chose to remain silent.

IN HIM I found me.
READ ISAIAH 53:1-11; (3- He was despised and rejected by men) (5- But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities) (10- Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him)


1 J Journey



Phillip Yancey…in his book “The Jesus I never knew” describes Jobs Outburst at God. “You don’t know what it’s like out here!” Job was most brazen, flinging to God this accusation: “Do you have eyes of flesh? Do you see as a mortal sees?
Of the many reasons for The Incarnation, surely one was to answer Job’s accusation: Do you have eyes of flesh? …For a time, God did. God is not mute: the Word spoke, not out of a whirlwind, but out of the human larynx”….. of The SON of GOD, The Messiah of Israel, a Jew from Bethlehem.

There was an email that made the rounds several years ago, its become very special to me.

“A Jewish father was concerned about his son who was about a year away from his Bar Mitzvah but was sorely lacking in his knowledge of the Jewish faith. To remedy this he sent his son to Israel to experience his heritage. A year later the young man returned home.

“Father, thank you for sending me to the land of our Fathers,” the son said. “It was wonderful and enlightening, however, I must confess that while in Israel I converted to Christianity.”

“Oy vey,” replied the father, “what have I done.” So in the tradition of the patriarchs, he went to his best friend and sought his advice and solace. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated his friend. “I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian.”

So in the tradition of the patriarchs, they went to the Rabbi. “It is amazing that you should come to me,” stated the Rabbi, “I too sent my son to Israel and he returned a Christian. What is happening to our sons? Brothers, we must take this to the Lord,” said the Rabbi.

They fell to their knees and began to wail and pour out their hearts to the Almighty. As they prayed the clouds above opened and a Mighty Voice stated…“Amazing that you should come to ME. I, too, sent My Son to Israel”.

Jesus was a rabbi; He was a carpenter. He knew what it meant to tend sheep, catch fish, and live in the shadow of the kings and empires of this world. He wore tassels on the hem of His tunic, attended weddings, experienced life in the everyday household of a Galilean community, and sat in Moses’ seat in the Synagogue.

He was born into a race of people chosen by God to bear His name to the world; a people who had made a covenant with God and broken it. Jesus lived like a Jew, talked like a Jew, acted like a Jew, and worshiped like a Jew. He was a Jew from Nazareth. His words, actions, and teaching methods were in keeping with the customs, traditions and religion of the Semitic culture into which He was born.


From My Mind to Yours

walking in the light

Are You a Servant of the Lord?
Are You Walking in HIS LIGHT?

Each Believer is a clay pot filled with Holy Spirit Fire. May your clay pot have many cracks so that your light will shine like the Pillar of Fire described in the Book of Exodus; the Pillar that lead the Children of Israel in the desert throughout their generation.

Share your God Story with someone you know and then tell The Greatest Story Ever Told…HIS Story…the Story of Jesus the Christ… and then take them to HIS CROSS.

Tell them Jesus is waiting there …waiting to be wanted by them…

Waiting patiently with His arms open wide.

The Dawn of Eternity has already begun. Your journey in time is almost over. You stand on the edge of FOREVER.
Your walk of Faith has brought you Back to Your Future.

You can see HIS light, as it grows brighter. You can feel the wind of the Holy Spirit all around you, the very breath of God.

But most of all you can hear clearly now the Whisper of HIS Voice as HE Calls to your Heart.

Well Done MY GOOD and FAITHFULL SERVANT come and walk with ME to your new home…

The Door is open

The Door

Are you walking into the light or into the darkness? The Door will close behind you, NEVER to be Opened Again.

I came across these two Scriptures. They show you what is important and on the Mind and Heart of Jesus Your Messiah, verses what is important and on the mind and heart of satan Your Enemy.

WHO are YOU FOLLOWING? Do YOU Realize Where You are going?

The I Will Statements of JESUS the Messiah are focused on YOU and Your Coming to Faith in HIM so you can be with HIM for Eternity in Heaven.

Psalm 40:7-10

“Then I (Jesus) said, “Behold,

I have come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me.

I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”

I have told the glad news of deliverance in the great congregation.

I have not restrained my lips, as you know, O Lord.

I have not hidden your deliverance within my heart.

I have spoken of your faithfulness and your salvation.

I have not concealed your steadfast love and your faithfulness from the great congregation.”

The I Will Statements of satan are focused on himself gaining power over the universe. satan will be denied his PRIDE by GOD and spend ETERNITY in HELL.

Isaiah 14: 13-15 “You (satan) said in your heart.

I will ascend to heaven; above the stars of God

I will set my throne on high;

I will sit on the mount of assembly in the far reaches of the north

I will ascend above the heights of the clouds

I will make myself like the Most High.”

ALMIGHTY GODS Answer to satan’s wanting to be like HIM:

“But you (satan) are brought down to Sheol (Hell), to the far reaches of the pit.”

Who are YOU following? JESUS to Heaven OR Satan to the PIT.

WHO are you?

WHO are you

I want you to use your imagination. The Picture has two shells. They represent 2 very different people.
PERSON A, has 5 senses: Sight, Smell, Taste, Hearing and Touch. They were blessed at birth with everything needed from God so they could appreciate the world that God made for them to enjoy. God gave them 5 senses for exploring the world around them so they would be without excuse regarding the fact that the world was made by God.

Yet this person has not found the One True Living God yet. Their 5 senses have only enhanced their pride and enabled them to focus on living out their will and not the Will of God for their life. They walk the earth with a heart of stone following the wide road that is taking them to their Eternal 2nd Death. They are referred to in the Bible as part of the Many.

PERSON B, has only 3 senses: Smell, Taste and Touch to explore our world with. But is missing Sight and Hearing. You would expect this person to be unable to explore their world and gain the knowledge that there is a God who made the earth and all that is in it including them. Yet even with a huge disadvantage of having only 3 senses and living a life both blind and deaf to everything around them; they were able to come to the knowledge of the One True God and REPENT and ACCEPT the DEATH of JESUS for their Sins on the CROSS.

They were given SALVATION, a new circumcised heart of Flesh that now beats in time with the heart of JESUS while pumping Royal Blood because they have become a Child of the KING. They are a Living Stone chosen by Jesus to be part of HIS ONE TRUE CHURCH.

PERSON B died many years ago. Her Name is Helen Keller. God gave Helen a 6th Sense that PERSON A never received. That 6th Sense is imparted to every Believer in Jesus. It is the Indwelling Holy Spirit who then guides us home during this bitter / sweet journey called life here on earth.

Helen Keller Said: “I had always known about God, even before I had any words. Even before I could call God anything, I knew God was there”.

Helen lived a life of True Faith. She could Hear with her heart, See with her soul. She was guided by a hand she could not hold. She trusted in a way she could not see, because with her that was what Faith must be!

Today Helen is in Heaven with her Savior, she Hears HIS Voice and no longer walks by Faith, but by SIGHT.

WHO are you? Person A or Person B ?
