SPEAK NOW! PDF Print

19. "When you are arrested, don't worry about how to respond or what to say. God will give you the right words at the right time.  20. For it is not you who will be speaking—it will be the Spirit of your Father speaking through you."  Matthew 10:19-20  NLT

"The members of the council were amazed when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, for they could see that they were ordinary men with no special training in the Scriptures. They also recognized them as men who had been with Jesus."  Acts of the Apostles 4:13  NLT

18. "So they called the apostles back in and commanded them never again to speak or teach in the name of Jesus.  19. But Peter and John replied, ‘Do you think God wants us to obey you rather than Him?  20. We cannot stop telling about everything we have seen and heard.'"  Acts of the Apostles 4:18-20  NLT 


BERNIE SANDERS TO TRADITIONAL CHRISTIANS:
YOUR BELIEFS ARE INDEFENSIBLY HATEFUL AND INSULTING, AND NOT WHAT THIS COUNTRY IS SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT.

Will we stand and speak regarding the love and life offered by our Savior Jesus Christ?  Or sit on the sidelines in silence as others who are seemingly devoid of His passionate presence define our faith for us?

Speak now . . . today is your opportunity to be heard!

6-4-17 PDF Print

A couple should live their life together so that everyone who sees, knows that they are Christian.

This must be especially true within their own family . . . their children . . . those they love the deepest.  Do those closest to you know where your devotion lies?

The decapitation of Christian morals start with the family structure.  A structure that has cast aside any idea of absolutism of scripture replacing it with a moral relevancy that is closely akin to doing whatever feels good.

We erode the holy protections designed within The Word of God by dragging them behind the culturally acceptable pursuits that feed our own egos and create another generation hooked on pleasure-seeking at the expense of holiness and sanctification.

We must be careful what we win our loved ones to – within our families and our churches.  For this is what the new normal will feel like – becoming the torch they strive to pass along!

PAUSE & REMEMBER PDF Print

“Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.”  Psalms 27:3 (ESV)

Across the history of this great country we have asked much of our young men.  They have fought with valor, courage, and a determination to accomplish the objective at hand.  In the discharging of this duty, so many have payed the ultimate price in places far too numerous to name – but far too precious to ever forget!

May we on this Memorial Day pause to remember those who gave their all for others.  May we be in awe of these who were – and the many who still are – ready to stand in the gap so that this nation might flourish.

May God bless all of those who have shed their blood for the United States of America!

Thank you!

– Dale

 
CRITICAL VISUALIZATIONS PDF Print

We need to return to two fundamental and critical visualizations about YHWH:

The first is that He is absolutely sovereign.
Nothing escapes His purview.
Nothing is beyond His reach.
Nothing occurs without His consent.
Sovereignty means totality.
I exist because He desires it.

The second is that He is to be feared.
Not only does He hold my life or death in His hand, He is worthy of my every effort of devotion.
I owe Him everything.
He presides over me in every way.
His favor or disfavor determines everything about my life.

I am expected to be in reverence and awe . . . commanded! – to be in reverence and awe before Him!  And that usually means to be on the floor on my face.  Anything else is presumptive arrogance or unimaginable foolishness.

MOTHERS PDF Print

“Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.  Honor your father and mother (this is the first commandment with a promise) that it may go well with you and that you may live long in the land.”  Ephesians   6:1-3 (ESV)

“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.”  – Robert Browning

Before we can utter the name of God . . . before we can know the name of our Savior, we speak the name – mother.  She is the face of love.  The very definition of care and compassion that we would be lost without.

Mothers – they are an early taste of what we look for in our blessed Savior.

– Dale
