HOW LONG?

Kingdom Pastor

On Saturday, a young man, filled with hate, thoughtlessly took the lives of 10 people and wounded 3 more in Buffalo, New York. Sunday, as people were enjoying a meal after worshipping God, a man walked in and thoughtlessly took one life and critically injured 4 more people. At a busy flea market in Houston. Texas, 5 young men had an “altercation” and the result was that 2 were dead and 3 were critically wounded. And these were not the only incidents this past weekend. So, I ask again: How long, o people of God?

  • How long will you choose to turn a blind eye to Satan’s rampant attacks and attack those who have been captured and seduced by Satan rather than fighting the spiritual war that is all around us?
  • How long will you choose to blame this, that, and the other rather than getting involved with the people…

The God Who Sees Me

See, there's this thing called biology...

El Roi, the God who sees me is found in Genesis 16, in the story of Hagar. It says, “She gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: “You are the God who sees me,” for she said, “I have now seen the One who sees me.”

Long before I even knew who Hagar was, I met the God who sees me, too. I was a pretty melancholy and lonely kid, not unlike Hagar, and I used to talk to God. One day I looked up and someone had carved the initials “icu” in a tree. It was a sign I tell ya, and I still think of it often. God has His own “intensive care unit” for our souls, as in giving us just what we need, at just the right time.

I’ve clung tightly to that “I see you” of long ago and I still believe…

A beetle sees a cat jump so high and far in a single bound that the beetle can no longer see it. The beetle exclaims:

Magic! That’s impossible. It’s got to be magic

But all along, the cat was performing something completely within its domain of power even if the beetle could not understand since ability like that is beyond imagination

A cat sees a turtle purposely submerge itself in a pond and reappear hundreds of paw prances away. It exclaims:

Magic! That’s impossible. It’s got to be magic

But all along, the turtle was performing something completely within its domain of power even if the cat could not understand since ability like that is beyond imagination

Question: Unbelievers spiritually blinded and also knows there is a God?

The Domain for Truth

unbelievers know God spirtually blind

Someone asked: Are unbelievers spiritually blinded? If everyone in their heart knows there is a God, how can they be blinded?

This is a question that particularly is one that concerns the Presuppositional Apologists who say nonbelievers in some sense actually know God but are also spiritually blinded.  If someone is not careful, one can think this is an objection to Presuppositional Apologetics.

Here’s my take:

Logos, Mythos, and Venison

See, there's this thing called biology...

For those who don’t know, logos is reason, order, logic. Our Lord is sometimes called Logos, as is His word, on account of the fact that He brings order to our chaos. We’ll call this “logos” objective reality or material truth.

Mythos is myth, legend, the stuff of fairytales and romance. We’ll call it subjective truth, how we interpret reality, what we make of things we have been given, how we process the information we receive.

I, like many others, tend to believe our society is having a major crisis of meaning, and that what is missing from the societal recipe is actually mythos. We’ve become very materialistic, very science minded, very anti-religion. We have falsely equated mythos with fiction or lies and as such rejected it as not valid.

This is a tricky point to make because many people look at our crazy world full of confused people where…

Rentals, Deer, and Choice?

See, there's this thing called biology...

Are you somewhat logic driven? I’m not suggesting that’s a superior way of processing information, I’m just saying, the world done lost it’s mind, so pray for your logic driven friends.

We are so not okay. Random chaos and complete irrationality really mess up our day.

I had a powerful revelation the other day, not ground breaking news, but a revelation just the same. Like, wow, we people are just so incredibly self absorbed and it completely clouds every aspect of our judgement! I already know this in my head somewhere, but I really got to smell the colors and taste the rainbow.

First there was this seriously injured deer that had to be put down. Yes, shot. We don’t have rehab, physical therapy, and caregivers for all the humans, let alone all the deer. This caused a great deal of outrage and shrieking here in the 9th…

DNA: Finding the Family Tree for the Whole Globe

sixdaysblog

This is a great follow-up to some of my previous articles featuring Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson and his genetic research. In this interview he talks about his scientific predictions regarding human history, and he concludes that all humans are related to a recent common ancestor, just as the Bible claims. This is at odds with evolution, which claims humans are related to an ape-like ancestor that existed more than 200,000 years ago. Which is correct?

Eric Hovind from Creation Today conducts the interview, and Jeanson discusses his research, claiming his genetic model is one of the strongest arguments in print for the recent origin of humanity, and it’s all because he uses a biblical time scale.

As it turns out, there’s massive amounts of genetic data available for research, and Jeanson started off by looking at Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), which is inherited exclusively from the mother, and he found enough data…

oh, lord! it’s monday! who’s to blame?

Kingdom Pastor

Blame doesn’t care if it’s Monday or Saturday, for it robs us of the opportunities to be both responsible for our choices and to spiritually grow. When negative and/or painful things happen to us, the immediate response is almost always to find someone to blame! It’s our corrupted DNA. Eve did it in the garden, “The devil made me do it!” And Adam piped right in, “That woman YOU gave me, it’s HER fault!” Finding some “thing” or some “one” to blame relieves and releases us from any personal responsibility; or so we think.

Blame puts blinders on us in order to keep our focus on the blame and the ending results are disasterous! If someone truly is to blame for our pain, it creates anger and bitterness. Anger and bitterness causes us to become self-absorded. And on the outside chance that the blame is our own fault, it prevents…

Stories From Lockdown?

See, there's this thing called biology...

So this local paper, this alternative press is looking for stories from the covid lockdown and I felt like I should write them something, but my urge to tell the plain truth went to war with my cheerful fortitude and so I totally choked.

I remember being ordered to shut down and suddenly finding myself locking the doors and unemployed. I remember all the closed restaurants and shuttered stores, the eerie empty streets, not even the birds singing, the way people were afraid to even leave their homes.

I remember the fear. Weeks and weeks of fear until somebody crept out in their car, alone with their windows rolled up, their mask on, as if the very air we breathe was now toxic.

I so want to tell you about all the spiritual fruit, the pearls hidden in the cesspool, the rich and varied blessings that have come from our…

Do demons exist? What does Jesus do about them?

Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts

SPIRITUAL WARFARE | Put on the Armor of God - Inspirational & Motivational Video - YouTubeWhy this is important: The Bible speaks of demonsas real, actual beings. However, Scripture’s depiction of demons is very different from the popular concept of them. The Bible describes demons as powerful but limited and ultimately defeated creatures. They are angels who followed Satan in rebellion against God.

 Then another sign appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads were seven crowns. Its tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth. And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth it might devour her child. She gave birth to a Son, a male who is going to rule all nations with an iron rod. Her child was caught up to God and to his throne. 6…

RIPPING APART AT THE SEEMS!

Kingdom Pastor

The fabric of our culture is being ripped apart at the seems. And please don’t call the Grammar Police that I have used the wrong word. It’s the correct word. I wrote what I meant and I meant what I wrote. SEEMS! Here in the good ol’ U.S. of A. the fabric of our society is being ripped to shreads at the seems. I came upon this thought through remembering a certain passage from The Bible. In fact, it’s been roaming around in my gray matter for several days. Here is is:

There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death.

Proverbs chapter 14 verse 12 from the New Living Translation

Some might think it’s amazing that a book as old as Proverbs can be so relevant to these times. But it’s not really amazing to me. These books of The Bible continue to…

OH, LORD! IT’S MONDAY! PUNISHMENT

Kingdom Pastor

Mondays are the punishment for what we did over the weekend! This is what Monday feels like for many of us on the third rock from the Sun. The feeling of being punished is both painful and it makes Monday seem like it’s an impassable situation. And it prevents us from seeing and experiencing the joy of life–the Joy that God wants us to have. This past weekend a conversation with a friend brought this to light for me.

My friend said, “I guess it’s God punishing me.” And to prove the Holy Spirit is still at work today, I replied, “No, it’s just the consequences of our stupid choices.” Yes, Jesus was punished for our screw-ups, a.k.a. SIN! But His Payment doesn’t negate this consequences of our choice to ignore The Truth. Every word spoken, every chosen attitude, and every action has consequences.

Europa Clipper: Searching for Life

sixdaysblog

The search for alien life continues- From Sci Tech Daily:

Some scientists believe Jupiter’s moon, Europa, has the potential for life. Hence, the NASA mission- Europa Clipper– is scheduled to launch on October 10, 2024, and will arrive in Jupiter’s orbit in the year 2030, where it will investigate its moon, Europa, in the hope of finding life at some point.

Europa, scientists say, has all the necessary ingredients for life (water, chemistry and energy), and it has a vast ocean lying beneath an icy shell where life could evolve.

I don’t believe in alien life, but I do value good science and respect the amount of hard work and effort put into this mission, and I’m looking forward to following it to the end and learning the results. My main concern is that the mission’s focus is more about evolutionary philosophy than science. If the mission were…

RIDICULOUS!

It’s a crazy, crazy world! Or is it? Looking at the above snyonyms I am forced to conclude that it’s NOT crazy–but Ridiculous! I mean, how preposterous is it that good olf fashion science has been replaced by feelings? Yet this current culture wants to emphasize feelings over reality! Isn’t it ludicrous to ignore eons of scientific advance in favor of how one feels? How silly is it to abandon the facts of biology and pursue a life built around how one feels? It’s absurd to even contemplate that human beings are more capable to make important decisions based on feelings rather than scientific fact. It’s just plain

We see and hear this every day with increasing frequency! Even the truth can’t be told today without being accused of being mean, vicious, ugly, phobic, and full of hate. Here’s just one example from many that bears this out: Gender! Eons…

The Discovery of Dino DNA

sixdaysblog

Is the age of the earth old or young? Does anyone really know? These questions have long been debated, but the evidence for a young earth keep mounting up, and it’s happening at the expense of evolutionists, who believe the earth is about 4.5 billion years old.

When the movie Jurassic Park came out, I was amazed and fell in love with the dinosaurs on-screen. They seemed as real as I could imagine them. I applied my suspension of disbelief and enjoyed watching these massive creatures roam the earth once again. But I couldn’t help but wonder if it was really possible to extract dino DNA from the belly of a mosquito preserved in amber. Some years later, however, after watching interviews with experts, they assured us that dinosaur DNA couldn’t survive 65 million years, even if preserved in amber.

But what if the earth wasn’t billions of years old?…

Daniel 9 Messianic Prophecy

daniel_9_messianic_prophecyPurpose: We will consider four points from Daniel 9:24-26 to see how it predicts Jesus as the Messiah so that we would submit to Him as Lord and worship Him today.

  • Determining what is a ‘week”
  • Prophecy 1: Rebuilding of Jerusalem
  • Prophecy 2: Messiah cut-off
  • Prophecy 3: Fulfilled before Temple Destruction

Passage: “Seventy weeks have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the wrongdoing, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for guilt, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Most Holy Place. 25 So you are to know and understand that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem, until Messiah the Prince, there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with streets and moat, even in times of distress. 26 Then after the sixty-two weeks…
