Christmas – the true Hope and Change

manger sceneAs we approach this Christmas season, it is good to remember the hope contained in it. Many false voices have cried “hope and change” but, there is only One who can truly bring hope and change. He is the One we celebrate this Christmas. Our Father in heaven sent Him to us as a gift and he came as a little baby, like we all do. Yet embodied in Him was the hope of the world.

All those who have children will understand the wonderment, joy, and love Mary and Joseph must have felt as they looked at that little face so at peace, even in a stable, yet, they must have also felt the pain of knowing what His purpose was and the things He would suffer for us all.

Christmas in Light of Hanukkah

manger sceneAs we approach Christmas, it is good to look at Christmas in prophecy. There is a story in biblical history that has much to tell us about the times of Christmas we are approaching, it is called Hanukkah. But, before we do, we should remember what Solomon wrote in Ecclesiastes

“The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.” – Eccl. 1:9

History does repeat itself. especially prophetic history. Jesus came once to initiate the Church but, He is coming a second time to set the world straight and to establish His Continue reading

Thanksgiving is Here

Chuck's 70th+2

Unless the LORD builds the house, They labor in vain who build it; Unless the LORD guards the city, The watchman stays awake in vain. … Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. Happy is the man who has his quiver full of them; They shall not be ashamed, But shall speak with their enemies in the gate.” – Psalm 127

As families gather for Thanksgiving this year be especially thankful for the children. They are your heritage from the Lord. Properly trained and cared for they will be your defense against all the warfare of the devil in these times. Even if the Lord has not seen fit to give you children at this time, yet you can rejoice in them, enjoy them, and by your prayers stand for their godly training. Continue reading

Our Common Salvation and the Last Trump

one-new-manToday there is much confusion about salvation and how to attain it. Some preachers, anxious to please men, say there are many ways to God. Some say we are saved totally by grace and repentance is not required, some say we can be saved and yet accept such abominations as abortion, homosexuality, or idolatry (the act of giving to another what belongs solely to God). Their message seems to be summed up by ‘what you can get from God’ and not ‘what you should give to God’. Jude, a brother of James writes about them –

“These are spots in your feasts of charity, when they feast with you, feeding themselves without fear: clouds they are without water, carried about of winds; trees whose fruit withereth, without fruit, twice dead, plucked up by the roots; Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame; wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever.” – Jude 1:12,13

Is Truth Failing in the USA?

web pictures 032“… your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness. None calleth for justice, nor any pleadeth for truth: they trust in vanity, and speak lies; they conceive mischief, and bring forth iniquity. … Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths. The way of peace they know not; and there is no judgment in their goings: they have made them crooked paths: whosoever goeth therein shall not know peace. Therefore is judgment far from us, neither doth justice overtake us: we wait for light, but behold obscurity; for brightness, but we walk in darkness. … And judgment is turned away backward, and justice standeth afar off: for truth is fallen in the street, and equity cannot enter.” – Isa. 59:2-14

Thanksgiving, a Time to Rest

fall 1Just a few weeks ago the Fall colors were bright, the grass was still green, and the temperature was perfect. Then overhead, I began to hear the honking of geese and ducks making their way south and the leaves began to fall. Almost suddenly it seems the temperature is below freezing and snow flurries gently begin to float down. It is almost if nature is saying, “It is time to rest”.  Continue reading

Racing Towards Judgment

wilkerson visionI recently posted several articles on past prophecies and included one by Pastor David Wilkerson called the Vision, which he wrote in a book with the same name in 1973. In 1976, he wrote another book named Racing Towards Judgment in which he listed three areas of judgment coming soon on America. This book expanded on things he saw in his vision of 1973. The three areas listed have been foreseen and warned about by many others in recent years; Continue reading
