Do you have a favorite Bible Verse ?

If you were to ask most believers what their favorite Bible verse is they would be able to tell you. However, I seem to be a little strange because when I think of my favorite Bible verse I immediately think of 3 verses, not one.

For me these 3 verses tie together my Journey of Faith. None of the 3 verses stand alone. Each verse needs the other to form the foundation of who I am in Christ.
The 3 verses tie together the entire bible.

The first verse represents the Old Testament. The second verse represents the New Testament. Then there is one in the middle. Kind of sandwiched in between the two bookends.

The first verse is in Genesis 1. It actually is the very opening verse in the Bible.
“In the Beginning GOD… created the Heavens and the Earth”.

The second verse is “Even so COME Lord Jesus”. This is the last verse in the Book of Revelation, which closes the Bible.

Those are the two bookends I love to think about. The fact that God made everything and that The Son of God is coming at the End of time.

Then as far as what I have to think about in the middle it is this…”Today is the Day of Salvation”. We do not have tomorrow, or yesterday, all we have is today!

Salvation is given only to those who diligently SEEK HIM. Yet, when we through His Grace and Mercy, accept Jesus as our Savior, it comes with a cost.

That cost is to Stand Alone for HIM in a crowd and speak the Truth. You literally become a light in the darkness that surrounds you. The crowd can be your family, your friends, your co-workers, or neighbors. We speak in love; because we know where they will go without accepting Christ as Savior. Our compassion for the Lost grows daily as we continue to live our lives before the FACE of GOD.

Every person lives eternally. But the Bible is clear that you either have Eternal Life or Eternal Death. So let your New Year’s Resolution be to continually reach out to those everywhere within the sound of your voice and the touch of your hands. Tell them Jesus came to save them from themselves.

Because Today is the Day of Salvation



What is the 1st most dominant subject in the New Testament ? It is SALVATION.
And what is the 2nd most dominant subject in the New Testament and the Old Testament combined?

It is the Final Answer to the 1st most dominant subject. It is the SECOND COMING OF JESUS.

Belief in the 2nd Coming of Jesus is not popular with Christians Today. Very few Seminaries today teach it, or believe it. Therefore many pastors do not teach it or believe it. This REAL EVENT IS VERY IMPORTANT to GOD; and should also be very important to You.

There are many Titles of Christ in the Bible. At the top of that list is “The WORD”. That’s right, JESUS is the very WORD of GOD. So I ask you CHRISTIAN WHY do you not believe the WORD of GOD ?

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Here are some Facts and Scriptures for you to consider. If in Fact you take the time to READ HIS WORD.

  • References of Jesus 2nd Coming out weight references to His 1st Coming by a factor of 8 to 1.
    • There are 1,845 Biblical References to His 2nd Coming
    • 260 Chapters in the New Testament mention His 2nd Coming 321 times
    • 17 Old Testament Books Emphasize His 2nd Coming
    • 23 of the 27 New Testament Books mention His 2nd Coming
    • 1 out of 30 versus in the New Testament teach of His 2nd Coming
    • Jesus referred to His Return 21 times


CHRISTIAN I ask you again Why do you not Believe Jesus is Coming Again?
Why do you Believe the words of men and IGNORE the WORD OF GOD ?

The GREATEST DAY in all of HIS-STORY is almost upon us. The Cross is Empty, The Tomb is Empty. JESUS is RISEN, HE IS ALIVE. The Greatest War & Holocaust of Humanity is coming !

The Final Chapter to the long and Tragic Story of Mankind is called “THE RETURN OF THE KING”. The VICTOR is KING JESUS and those that Belong to HIM.

Whose side are you really on? Are you a WINNER or are you a LOSER ?

The following are some Scriptures you would be VERY WISE to read for yourself.

Jude: 14-15 , Daniel 7:13-14 , Zechariah 14: 4, Zechariah 14: 5, Jude 14, Matthew 24: 27, 29-31. Acts 1:11 , 2 Thessalonians 1: 7-8, Revelation 19: 11, 12, 13, 15, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21. Revelation 20:10

Unless you understand the TRUTH you Will fall captive to the Lies of the Coming ANTI-CHRIST, the FALSE MESSIAH who will be in Hell with all the other Losers!

Most IMPORTANT Question of YOUR LIFE !

Life is about SALVATION. Life is a Journey with 2 Roads leading to 2 Different Eternal Destinations.

At the End of Your Life on Earth, the ONLY QUESTION that will matter is AM I GOING TO HEAVEN or AM I GOING TO HELL?

Find your quiet place and walk with me in your mind and heart as we explore SALVATION.

The Tragedy of Dying without Salvation


The Rich Man and Lazarus

19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.

22 “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’

27 “The Rich Man answered, ‘Then I beg you, Abraham, send Lazarus to my family, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’

29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’

30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’

31 “Abraham said to the rich man, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’”

Jesus on the road to Emmaus in Luke 24:44

Now He said to them, “These are My words which I spoke to you while I was still with you, that all things which are written about Me in the Law of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must be fulfilled.”

Being Salt and Light comes at a Cost

Salt and Light

How can you and I as believers in Christ remain true to our individual calling by God to be His Salt and Light in the darkness of the culture we live in? To begin we need to define both Salt and Light. Salt is a preservative. As long as salt remains pure and does not get mixed with another substance it will keep its properties and continue to be effective.

Like salt, Believers who remain in the Word and stand alone for Christ in society will have an effective witness. Once we try to be like the surrounding culture our witness becomes ineffective and our credibility is gone. Then to make matters worse through our stumbling we let the Lord be mocked.

Salt also provides flavor. The Gospel represents a meal that when flavored with truth, and given to a true “Seeker of God” will satisfy their appetite forever. Salt also makes us thirsty and so we drink water to refresh ourselves. But water is only a temporary solution for our thirst as we begin to thirst over and over again but never get satisfied. The Gospel however is the Living Water that satisfies our body, mind and soul eternally and will satisfy our everlasting thirst.

Light is meant to illuminate. Just as darkness flees from the light, so to the Gospel, the light of Truth; causes the lies that live in the shadows that plague mankind’s soul to disappear. Light illuminates the path before you, so you can see the destination of your journey clearly. The Gospel represents a journey that everyone needs to take in order to gain the Salvation offered by God. The Word of God is a “Lamp unto thy feet”. It keeps you from stumbling on the pathway home.

God if you recall never prepared Hell as a destination for mankind. Hell is the place prepared for “the devil and his (fallen) angels” in which fallen humanity will also reside. It is mankind’s destination by choice. It is not Gods choice for mankind.

“The lost will enjoy forever the horrible freedom they have demanded and are therefore self- enslaved. God will abandon sinners to their own choice and the consequences of their choices.”
CS Lewis…Problem of Pain

Therefore, you and I are to be salt and light in a Godless society. We are to open our mouths whenever the Holy Spirit gives us an opportunity to witness to a forever dying soul. We are never to compromise our life, our walk or our talk. All three must be unified for us to effectively witness to non-believers.

The Apostle Paul in the Book of Acts spoke about “becoming like one of them” in order to witness to the pagan world around him. He did not mean to blend into the society, to be like one of them, to do what they do; so he could have an opportunity to witness to them. If Paul acted like them he would not have stood out from among them. “Becoming like one of them”, means to understand what they believe and why they believe it so you can witness to them intelligently and show them the errors of their belief system, the flaws contained within their worldview.

Rather than engage people in meaningless witnessing on topics of their choosing, which lead people away from the Truth into arguments, and animosity. Paul chose to control his witnessing by preaching Christ Crucified and His Resurrection from the dead. The ultimate objective of your witnessing is to take people to the Savior’s Cross and to His Resurrection from the dead.

People must understand their need to be saved. Your job is to explain both why they are in need of a Savior and what it is that they are being saved from. This way they will understand the truth of their situation before a Holy God who is coming this time in wrath and with judgment. Without repentance there can be no Salvation. When Paul spoke to someone with biblical knowledge, he spoke to them using the Bible to show them the God of the Bible. When they had no knowledge of the Scriptures Paul spoke to them about Creation and the God of Creation revealed in the Scriptures. These are the two areas of common ground we have with people to explain who God is.

I realize we are all afraid to take on “Spiritual encounters with darkness”…which is the essence of witnessing. However we need to realize as believers we have the resident Holy Spirit, the Comforter within us so we can step out in faith knowing we are not alone in our witness.

Even Moses feared to do this. But God reminded Moses that it was God who made his mouth and it would be God who would put the words into his mouth. Because Moses doubted, God gave the honor of speaking HIS words to his brother Aaron, who then spoke for Moses to Pharaoh. Moses lost part of the Joy that belongs to each of us in our journey because he chose not to listen and obey God.

God is strong when I am weak. This insures that He Gets the GLORY…not me. My ears have heard responses from my lips in witnessing confrontations that came from the Holy Spirit, not from me. How awesome it is to see God use our weakness while watching HIS strength in action.

All of us can look back on our journey to faith in Christ and see the multiple seeds that were planted by people into our lives. You and I are not responsible for any one persons Salvation. We are not responsible for that person’s choice to either accept or deny the Gospel. In the end the responsibility rests with the Holy Spirit and with the choice each person must ultimately make.

You and I are responsible to obey God and do His will during our lives. Being obedient is how we prove to God that we really love Him. One of the saddest stories in the Bible is about Samson. God was with Samson from the womb. He was a believer that was used greatly by God until he became like the culture around him. The process was slow, like a frog being cooked alive in a pot till it dies.

God did not turn away from Samson; it was Samson who turned away from God to live a perverted life. You know the story, Delilah cut his hair. Samson got up to fight but his strength was no longer with him. The saddest part is that Samson did not know that the Holy Spirit had departed from him. He no longer was salt and light in his culture. God left Samson to the consequences of his own choices for the rest of his life. In a sense he was given over to satan for a time. Yet God in His mercy to Samson allowed him to end his life in the service of His Lord.

Every face of someone you know represents the face of God. They were made in the image of God. If they do not know Jesus as Savior, their image is damaged. They need to hear your personal God story; they need the seeds that God has uniquely given you to plant. They need you to be salt and light for their sake.

This is a time when the pulpits of most churches are filled by weak men in weak churches giving weak messages. Instead this should be the time for boldness, for strong biblical ministry so people hear the word of the Living Lord and respond in true repentance for their sins. One of the signs of the wrath of God is when he abandons a culture. I believe He has done that throughout the world, including the United States. Our culture has asked God to leave and He has complied. We now are left to reap the whirlwind.

There is one last aspect of Salt we did not touch on, the ability of Salt to heal. As a believer, knowing who I am in Christ is a great responsibility. When I act like Moses and refuse to open my mouth or when I act like Samson and choose to flow with the current of the sewage we all swim in rather than Stand Alone against the tide… my heart breaks leaving an open wound. You see, my soul is full of light. I know better than to let the encroaching shadows of the old man get a hold of me…yet…often shadows fill my soul.

Sometimes even a follower can get lost.

When this happens my witness is tarnished, the Holy Spirits power is diminished in my life and I am ashamed and cry out for forgiveness. The salt that I am supposed to be turns inward and flows into the open wound in my broken heart. The salt then causes me pain as it heals me.

The God I serve knows that ”I am but dust “ before HIM. My God loves me and extends new mercies everyday to all those who love him. He heals my broken heart and takes away the evil shadows in my Soul with His light. And then, I begin a new day devoted to making a difference for Him with those I love and those He puts into my path.

May you continue to live your days under the protection of His wings, bathed in His light and covered by the Shadow of His Cross.

Is your head in the sand ?

Occasionally people have messaged me saying that what I am writing is too harsh, and that I should focus on the LOVE of JESUS. That by focusing on the JUDGMENT OF JESUS, I am making it harder to share the Gospel.

You have it backwards.To know GOD is to FEAR GOD. That is step one for understanding you are a SINNER in need of Salvation. There is NO TRUE SALVATION if you did not REPENT. You cannot REPENT unless you FEAR JESUS first.

Two years ago I was on an operating table in the hospital. The doctors finished my heart cath and then told me I had 2- 80% blockages and that they were going to either split me open or attempt to insert stents. I had no idea how sick I was when I entered the hospital. God in His Mercy and Grace gave me more time to be here to serve HIM by planting seeds and encouraging the faith of believers and confronting non believers in LOVE with the TRUE GOSPEL that they are going to HELL. Then do all I can to help them to understand the LOVE of JESUS for them individually through HIS DEATH on the CROSS. And that JESUS is NOT Coming Back the 2nd Time in Love. HE is coming back Soon Only in JUDGMENT.

So when I write I try to present the Gospel creatively. Writing about my faith but always speaking about Jesus LOVE and His JUDGMENT, because the time is short. You cannot present a One Sided Portrait of JESUS to unsaved people!

The Apostle Paul warns us to examine our Faith to make sure WE ARE IN THE FAITH. He warned of pastors and others in the END TIMES that would preach ANOTHER GOSPEL leading their flocks to HELL instead of HEAVEN. Plus the world including the Nation of Israel will soon accept the 1st Coming of the FALSE MESSIAH. Why , because they lack discernment of the Word of GOD and cannot discern the Truth from the Coming LIE.

Matthew 7: 23 was written to Professing Believers that were self deceived . They will begin telling Jesus all the things they did for HIM, and HE will say “then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

So let me remind you that Scripture teaches that their are 3 kinds of Christians: TRUE , CARNAL and PROFESSING CHRISTIANS. The Apostle Paul, not me, calls you to know which you are.

JESUS will judge each according to their life here and their words spoken before HIM, one split second after they leave this earth.

I care about you. I want you to understand SCRIPTURE. I want you to take your responsibilities and the life you are living out here daily before the eyes of GOD seriously. I want you to begin witnessing to your loved ones and warning them of the events coming and showing them the reality of GODS prophetic words in the Bible.

If you truly believe in Christ and you want to not only be part in your NEW FOREVER FAMILY in HEAVEN, but you want desperately to have the rest of your family here on earth with you in Heaven Forever ; THEN START Opening Your Mouth about what is happening all around you, and TAKE YOUR HEAD OUT OF THE SAND.

Please know that my prayer for you, is to begin focusing on your RESPONSIBILITIES to JESUS FIRST and not the WORLD, and its CULTURE and ITS HOLIDAYS that surround you.


The Final Holocaust by GOD HIMSELF of ALL Humanity is Coming, do everything you can to witness to those you LOVE ! You have TODAY not Tomorrow !

Gods Free Gift to YOU

At some time in your Christian life, you may have struggled with questions like, when a sinner is saved, who chooses whom—does God choose the sinner, or the sinner choose God? Did Christ die for the sins of everyone, or just the people He saves?

The vast majority of those kinds of thorny, persistent, mind-boggling questions are directly related to the sovereignty of God, election, predestination, perseverance, and the question of “free will.”

When I was done studying the latter two emotions took over me. The first was sheer Joy that the God of the universe choose me before I was born; to become His Child and assure me that I would ultimately come home to be forever with HIM in Heaven.

Then a depth of sadness I have not felt before overtook me as I realized that just about everyone I loved or cared for; family and friends would not be with me in heaven. Why, because to my Jewish family the Gospel is a stumbling block and to my non-Jewish friends the Gospel is foolishness. 1 Corinthians 1:23

I could really do nothing about it but pray. I know… we are called to pray. But phrases kept running through my mind: the few and the many, the narrow road and the wide road, choose life or choose death, heaven or hell, and finally “ONLY the REMNANT”.

The word remnant means the few. Too many of the people I care about have already chosen by not choosing; a road to a different place. A place that if given the opportunity to spend but a few minutes in while alive would change their lives here forever.

People’s consciences have been seared and calloused. They do not realize how much they now have in common with a frog in a pot on a stove…. an ostrich with its head buried in the sand…. or a deer that runs out into the road and is mesmerized by oncoming headlamps of an approaching vehicle until its too late.

This world we live in seems lush and beautiful. The reality is really quite different. This world is a desert filled with burning sands and howling winds. Sands that if left to the course of the winds would bury all civilizations beneath its ever-moving waves.

No matter how disappointed I am, no matter how hard it is now to find joy in witnessing; I know the reason I live another day is only to do HIS will. His will is that I share the Gospel with everyone He brings to me. So I will continue to be an Oasis in this desert world I live in. I will continue to hold out a cup of His cool water to those who begin to realize how thirsty they really are for the water of eternal life.

The loudest sound in the desert is the wind. I know that the wind carries His voice. Just as John the Baptist was chosen to be a voice in the wilderness, so too have you and I been called to be HIS voice within the wilderness that surrounds each of us.

So I will get back onto my camel and continue to draw people to HIM and let HIM do the work that I cannot.

And yes, I will pray for those I love for as long as I have breath in my lungs…that as long as they have breath in their lungs, someday in the future they too will call on the name of Jesus and be SAVED.

The Blind Will See

The Blind Will See…
Sounds familiar doesn’t it. This is one of the promises of God to those who believe in the coming of His Redeemer, Messiah…His Son Jesus. This promise is to those who have placed their faith in Christ. They will be able to step out in faith, into eternity to live in the Kingdom of God –forever.

Do you remember all of the promises?
• the blind will see…
• the deaf will hear…
• the dead will live again…
• the lame will leap ….
• the dumb will speak praises to the Lamb.

These promises will be kept because they were made by Jesus, the Lord of ALL Creation who alone became the God/Man who…
• Walked on water!
• Came to save our sons and daughters!
• Came to deliver you!
• Calmed a storm with His hand!
• Walks where angels trod!

Jesus the Son of God, the Ancient of Days, the Great I AM of the Old Testament!

These promises and many more belong only to a Spiritually Born Again person. For unless you are Born Again, the physical eyes you see through are spiritually blind. Your physical journey here is like climbing a mountain to get to the top.
When you have arrived you will stand before a door. Your focus on your climb will have been so intense that you will not notice the small sign above the door.

Then you will eagerly reach out and grasp the handle to open the door to the fulfillment of your desires. The handle is painful to your touch…it’s so very hot ! But you will bear the pain and open the door because you will be consumed with what you heard awaits you.

Standing in the open doorway you see a light off in the distance, yet you seem to be standing in shadows. As you look out into the distance a faint path emerges that leads to the light. But as you look down you cannot see the place to put your foot on the path so that you can follow it to the Eternal Kingdom of Light.

Then you will look up and see the little sign. It says…“If you had SEEKED ME with all your heart, mind and soul you would have found me. You have lived your life in darkness yet you have seen a great light and now it is appointed to man once to die, and then the judgment”.

HIS words fall on a soul filled with shadows and a heart and mind that never became renewed; for you had lived your life deaf, dumb and blind to the truth.

Just under the sign is a pull chain attached to a light bulb. Still not understanding the message you will reach up and pull the chain that’s attached to the light bulb expecting the light to come on and illuminate your path, but instead you will turn ON the Darkness. Congratulations you have arrived at the place you personally have chosen to spend eternity. You now will be in outer darkness…blind and alone for eternity without hope in a place where …”the dead shall live again.”

Then you will hear HIS VOICE say to you…
“ those who live in Darkness have seen a great light ”. And the words HE wanted you to read will now flood into your mind.

Matthew 4:16-17
16 the people dwelling in darkness
have seen a great light,
and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.”
17 From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

The Bible gives us in-sight into the physical world we think is real; and into the invisible world that is true reality. The spiritual dimension is more real than our own existence. The physical realm is ending, but the spiritual realm is forever….

Genesis 5 and the Messiah


The Jewish rabbis for centuries have looked into the Bible for prophetic clues that would help them understand God and the coming of the Messiah.

The rabbis have said, “they will not understand the Scriptures until the Messiah comes. But when He comes, He will not only interpret each of the passages for us, He will interpret the very words; He will even interpret the very letters, in fact, He will even interpret the spaces between the letters!”

Jesus in Luke 24:13 on the Emmaus road did just that. The two disciples were depressed that the Messiah was killed.
“Jesus said to them “O foolish men and slow of heart to believe in all that the prophets have spoken! Was it not necessary for the Christ to suffer these things and to enter His glory? “And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.”

Jesus said in Matthew 5:17-18,“Think not that I have come to destroy the Torah and the prophets; I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

Hidden within Genesis 5 is the oldest prophecy that God established regarding His eternal plan of redemption for mankind. The Genealogy of names in Genesis 5 is the first place you will find the Gospel, the Good News that we as believers are commanded to preach to our friends, neighbors and loved ones.

Every Hebrew letter or number has a meaning. In our Bible we read Hebrew names, but what do they mean in English? When we interpret the meaning of each of these 10 Hebrew names (Adam through Noah), they form the most fascinating sentence in the entire Bible.
Adam……………………………man (is), Seth……………………………..appointed, Enosh……………………………mortal, Kenan…………………………sorrow (but),  Mahalalel……….The Blessed God, Jared……………………shall come down, Enoch…………………………teaching, Methusaleh……..His Death Shall Bring, Lamech…………….. the despairing, Noah…………………….comfort and rest.

Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow (but) The Blessed God shall come down teaching, His Death Shall Bring the despairing comfort and rest.
How awesome is God, that within the Hebrew names of a genealogy in the Old Testament, He would hide HIS New Testament Plan of Redemption . (Salvation, bought for all through the death of Gods Son, JESUS !).

There is no way that a group of Jewish rabbis would conspire to hide the Christian Gospel within their venerated Torah! It’s a gift from GOD, a reward to the diligent “Born Again” student of our Supernaturally Inspired Old and New Testament Scriptures.

Remember, History is HIS Story, the story of Christ. That story is hidden in the Jewish Old Testament and Revealed in the Jewish New Testament.

Have you made GODS HONOR ROLL?

Through the years I have spoken to many believers in Christ about their God Stories; how they came to know the Lord. More often than not they had accepted the Risen Lord early in life.

They cannot remember a time when they did not know Him. For them the words of Christ…”let the little children come unto me” became reality as they ran to His open arms and were embraced by the Living God as children. They were born again through a simple child like faith into the family of God.

Others came to know Him as teenagers or during their early college years. These were times when the influence of Godly men and women made a difference in their lives. When being part of a group was important and growing in grace and wisdom was enhanced by nurturing mentors.

They were blessed because people took the time to invest their lives into them and disciple them. The soil of a young heart and the thought process of a young person are much more open to the Gospel.

As we grow older we become jaded Adults. Sin has had many years to grow deep roots within our hearts. We have become accustomed to sin. Our hearts are calloused, our conscience has been seared, our reasoning is flawed and we no longer know how to blush.
As adults we do not come to know Him through a simple child like faith. We are not interested in taking the time to seek Him, to learn of Him or to be discipled by those who offer to invest their time into us.

God has a special program to reach adults. It is called the storms of life. They come and swirl around us for a very long time…until they break us. No longer can we look inside for answers. Our eyes look up and we cry out to the heavens for mercy and beg for hope. We innately know someone or something greater than us is out there and so we reach up to the heavens.

God calls out to mankind daily and says…Why have you not returned to me? Believe in ME and I will give you refuge from the storms and hope for your future!

And so the relentless waves of famine, hunger, drought, natural disasters, pestilence, crop disease, physical disease turn into never ending insurmountable waves of sorrow. For those that don’t know Him life at best is bitter / sweet.

Have you ever noticed the design of Gods Cross, how its beams represent two linear lines that intersect each other. The vertical beam is planted deep into the earth that He created. His Cross is rooted into the dirt, the same dirt that He made mankind out of.
Through the roots of His Cross the earth drank deeply of His Blood as it poured forth into the parched ground. In the days of Moses, God had come down to lead His people as a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. This pillar was so large that it could be seen by the entire nation of Israel for miles in each direction of its encampment.

But this time, it was more personal. God came down in the form of a man and so the vertical Cross beam rooted in the earth reached upwards to heaven; connecting heaven to earth. For 33 years God lived and walked among us. He came seeking those with a child like faith. He came seeking those who needed mentoring and discipleship.

God came seeking the lost and the broken hearted that live without hope; to personally walk with each of them in the cool of the day and offer each a cup of cool living water.

The top of the beam reaches out to the same heavens that He created by the words coming forth from His mouth. God said to creation “Let there be”, and out of nothing came everything. But when He made us, He said “Let US make man in our image”.

The top of the beam of the Cross reaches up to the US; to His Father and the Holy Spirit. This Comforter gave each person new life by taking up residence within the hearts of those who believe in the Son of God.

And so the vertical beam connected Heaven to Earth, but the horizontal beam was more personal.

The Cross beam reaches around the entire globe. It was not the nails that held HIS arms to the Cross Beam; it was HIS great Love for you! Because HE Came Personally just for YOU! His arms enfold each of us, and comfort each of us that accept the hand of God that reaches down from His Cross to draw us up to Himself.

These two linear lines form a coordinate locked into time. They form an ancient prophetic symbol upon which heaven would meet earth and God would meet man. The story of the God / Man is contained in Gods Autobiography.

I am sure you have taken the time to read the stories of men. Their stories can touch our hearts and emotions. But their stories are fiction, not real…not truth.

Their stories remind us of a truth deep within us. Echo’s of a time before time, when truth was planted deep within our hearts by God. And so we rally behind the stories in the novels when love wins the day and justice is served. Because inside each of us is this need for love fulfilled and the desire for justice.

This truth buried deep within us is like a dream that is so real. Yet when we wake up the images recede back into the mists of our minds. It is like trying to grasp water or watching a wisp of smoke as it disappears into thin air.

Why is the Truth that difficult to grasp and understand?

Have you taken the time this year to begin reading the True Story of a visible King who brought an invisible Kingdom with Him? THE KING who came to save you not from yourself but from Himself. This King whose sacrificial love is greater than anything we can imagine is also Holy and demands that His justice be satisfied as well.

This King has a Book of Life. It is like the honor roll list that you tried to earn a place on during your elementary, high school and college years. This honor roll was based on your achievements. You were honored by your peers and the titles you received built up your pride and your passion in your accomplishments. This honor roll prepared you for this life here on earth.

But the Book of Life is Gods honor roll and you and I do not qualify to get on it. There is nothing we can achieve to make it. For we are not honorable, only God is to be honored.

In truth our accomplishments will all fall short, our dreams will never be realized, our possessions will become the possessions of others.

Why… it’s simple to understand…we will die. We will die either young or old, either today or tomorrow …but we will die.

Every honor given us by men will die with us and the life we lived, our legacy will recede back into the dream we lived on earth. Like an echo from the distant past, barely visible, difficult to hear…then gone forever….remembered by no one—— except God.

This life is but a dream. Your real life will begin when you die. Don’t spend this short time you have seeking the praises of men. They can do nothing for you.

Instead seek to know the Living God who waits for you to let Him into your heart. Then and only then will your name be written into Gods Honor Roll…His Book of Life.

A wise man once made the statement …How sad it is to be alone in the world. There is much truth in that statement because most of us will do everything we can to fill our lives with people, whether family or friends or strangers.
We fear being alone.

We need crowds of people because we truly are not comfortable with ourselves. I can admit that many times in my life I have felt most alone while surrounded by many people…but at least there were people around me.

What is sadder yet is the fact that without God we will be alone forever…without anyone around us. Gods Autobiography is the only book worth spending your time with. Your true story is there, your past is there, your present is there and your future is there.

If you know Jesus as Lord, then realize He is coming back as your King to hear from your lips how you served Him. He wants to know your account of the precious time He gave you and whether you made a difference for Him.

This life is not about you but about your King.

May every breath of life you take into your lungs go forth from your mouth as words of life to those around you. Tell people about your King and His Kingdom. Tell them why they need to be saved and from what.

Tell them about HIS Cross.
