The Evangelism Crew, where are they Now?
Romans 16:21-27 I think it would be great to be able to surround myself with people whose purpose is to bring others to Jesus Christ. It would feel like the Church I was brought up in through the 60's and early 70's. Church was all about "grounding" people in the Bible, to be familiar with … Continue reading The Evangelism Crew, where are they Now?
Alone in a World of Obstacles
Romans 16:17-20 If I was looking for an answer to why I am alone in life, this explains it, "I urge you, brothers and sisters, to watch out for those who cause divisions and put obstacles in your way that are contrary to the teaching you have learned. Keep away from them." Romans 16:17 The world … Continue reading Alone in a World of Obstacles
I’m Particular Who I Say Hi To
Romans 16:1-16 I read this part of Romans years ago and I thought about the "woke" speakers accepting an award at the Oscars. They go on and on thanking this person, thanking that person, etc. Very boring. But I kept reading these verses throughout the years and now it is very meaningful to me. The … Continue reading I’m Particular Who I Say Hi To
The Desire to Help in a Struggling Society
Romans 15:30-33 Trying to help others through their struggles is always a choice between living by the Spirit of Jesus Christ and doing contrary to the internal government of the mark of the beast. That's because the society of those who live by the mark of the beast do not want help given to those … Continue reading The Desire to Help in a Struggling Society
A Salvation Desert. Help the Faithful Few
Romans 15:23-29 The internal government dominates thoughts and feelings, and nobody is really interested in the Bible anymore. Unless it's the older generation of the Baby Boomers, like me. Even then, there will always be those with the testimony of Jesus Christ until He returns. Meanwhile, the younger generation are brought up to live by … Continue reading A Salvation Desert. Help the Faithful Few
Fidelity to the Body of Christ
Romans 15:7-13 When I consider how Jesus Christ accepted me, it makes me wonder how I could ever be like Him. Today in this year 2022, I suffer affliction for choosing Jesus Christ over the mark of the beast, but as the days progress where will I be? Will I be able to embrace other … Continue reading Fidelity to the Body of Christ
Enduring Insults when Helping Others
Romans 15:1-6 The community where I live don't give a hoot about helping people become a better human being. The only thing they care about is conforming people to the internal government. They are flat out hostile to human sentimentality and especially if that humanness is absorbed into the Spirit of Jesus Christ. It's only … Continue reading Enduring Insults when Helping Others
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
Romans 13:8-10 I could sit in front of a mirror and repeat everything that I've said to another person. The time when I said, "You're an idiot," doesn't sound very good when I see myself saying it to myself. The time when I said, "Jesus loves you," sounds acceptable when I see myself saying it … Continue reading Mirror, Mirror on the Wall
