(About us)


Wake Up Christian

Christian you thought you were safe, 
from the evils of the slithery snake, 
but you had better wake up, 
because it will soon be too late 

Satan hears the trumpets, 
of God’s final call, 
he knows his time is short, 
he know he must soon fall 

Watch as the mighty, and the holy, 
are trampled under his feet, 
just like the prophets foretold, 
he now stands in our very streets 

He tells mankind there is security, 
in our rocks of silver and gold, 
it will surely take care of us, 
when we have all grown old 

He tells us only fools, 
worry about the darkness of death, 
he says forget your God, 
fore in Him you’ll find no eternal rest 

He tell us man is the only answer, 
man is all there is, 
why do you foolishly cherish, 
your fables and useless myths 

But listen to me Christian, 
listen fast and listen hard, 
why do you think Satan is so worried, 
about a child who was foretold by a star 

Can’t you feel it all around you, 
it is even in the air, 
the one and only God Almighty, 
has stood up from His holy chair 

He sends His loving peace, 
to all of those who wait, 
He stands there before us, 
opening His heavenly gate 

So be not fooled Christian, 
by Satan’s evil ways, 
fore God Almighty in Heaven, 
is soon coming to take his place 

Hold fast to your faith Christian, 
in these final hours, 
let Satan not steal your joy, 
let Christ remove your cares

Christ is coming any moment, 
and Satan must surely go, 
but where does that leave our treasures, 
of man’s silver and gold 

Hold fast to God’s lasting treasure, 
His only begotten Son, 
Jesus is the answer, 
Jesus is the only One

Welcome to my home at




As we quietly listen to a mountain stream, 
it brings a calmness to our soul, 
it washes away all of our cares, 
and gives us dreams of gold. 

The sound of a small bird singing, 
there happily in a tree, 
it brings a smile deep within, 
where only we can see. 

The sound of a tiny baby, 
as it giggles and wiggles about, 
shows an inward purity, 
which we have long learned to live without. 

But the sound of a simple word, 
is a very strange thing indeed, 
it can lift us to the mountaintop, 
or plunges us into the depths of the deepest sea. 

As a lighthouse lights our world without, 
to shows us what we have not yet seen, 
the word of God light our hearts within, 
and tells us what our deepest dreams mean. 

The outward light speaks to our sight, 
words speak to that which is within, 
the thing one does in the outward light, 
is only a reflection of that which is within. 

Words take on their fullest meaning, 
where human sounds cannot be heard, 
it is when we turn our voice to God, 
that the words of the heart are stirred. 

When sounds of the water stream, 
and the bird and child are no longer heard, 
the voice of God will still speak within 
as He guides us by His word. 

If we could play back all of our words today, what would they have really said?  Would the Father be proud to hear them
again, or would we be embarrassed instead?  We should never forget the Father’s promise, as His word has long foretold,
we must account to our heavenly Father one day, for every single word on others we have bestowed. 

So we should listen to our words each day, as the years make us grow old, and prepare ourselves for the question to be
asked, how well is with our soul?

Are you ready for the surprise?

Are you ready for the surprise? When our eyes close in death to this
world, what a surprise it is going to be when we first see that glorious
light shinning across the universe, and to finally see our faith there
standing before us.  As ours eyes close in death, our thoughts of this
world fade out of site, and we find ourselves totally alone in the vast
outer darkness. But there before us in the distance stands a mighty
fortress and the radiant beams of the Father come shinning from behind
it’s crystal walls.

The reality of the truth which now stands before us sends shock waves
through our soul, as our lives pass before us in a flash, and all that
we thought was important suddenly seems so meaningless, because this
very moment is our reason for being.  Why could we not have seen then
what is so obvious to us now? What blinded us all those years to what is
so plainly seen in this moment?  All our lives the Father has stood
before us in our hearts, but we aloud our own momentary desires to blind
us to that which is eternal.   We suddenly ask ourselves how will my
life now be seen in the eyes of the Father?  Oh if I could only change
my stupidity!

As we stand there in that dreadful darkness we know there is a question,
which must be answered. Will my name be called to come forth into the
kingdom, or will the light of the Father soon fade away, and I will be
left alone in this endless darkness, and what is to become of me now.

As we now look forward to that moment, we pray, Father breath on us
again thy loving spirit, and open our hearts that we might see ourselves
now as you will see us then, that we might love you now, as you will
love us then. Oh how we pray that we could give to the unbeliever the
sight which we now see in our hearts, so they would know without a doubt
that there is an almighty loving Father who truly loves them.

Brother and sisters in Christ, lift up your voice this day, because our
Christ comes soon, and we will no longer have the opportunity to tell
others about our loving Jesus who freely lights our hearts with His
unending love.  Will our name be called?  We answer that question today
with our own love for others.  Will we now call out the names of the
lost, will we go and seek them out, or are they not worth seeking?

Oh what a surprise awaits us brothers and sisters, oh what sadness
awaits those who will not hear, even though the Lord has been knocking
at their hearts door everyday.  How stupid their lives will seem at that
moment of surprise. But then it will be too late.

Oh Lord how we love you, and thank you for giving us Your hand to guide
us home. What a joyous surprise awaits the child of the Father.  God
bless the body of Christ, and may His light shine brightly through each
of us to those who still remain in the darkness.

Your brother in Jesus, the ONLY Master, and the ONLY Christ!

A Strange Dream

I had a strange dream the other night, which I would like to share with
you.  I didn’t think it was too unusual at the time, but I haven’t found
anyone yet who has had a similar experience.  It was when the same dream
occurred a second time that I began to look for a meaning.   I have
learned to bring such things to the Lord, and ask, Father, what are you
trying to teach me now, what is it I need to know?

But first let me tell you about the dream; perhaps it may not seem so
strange to you.  It was a normal dream for me, a bit foggy as usual, but
it certainly did not have the clarity of a vision.  What made the dream
seem unusual was that I actually had a dream within a dream.  When I
have a bad dream I have learned to just refuse to stay in it’s presents,
and I make myself awaken.  This was just such a dream, but much to my
surprise, as I was thinking how glad I was to have left the bad dream
behind, my alarm clock rang and awoken me a second time, as I had still
been dreaming.

For some reason I felt very happy about my new experience, and I shared
it with others, but none had ever experienced such a dream.  Upon having
the experience again the following week, I turn to our Father to seek
the meaning of the dream.  He filled my soul with His Spirit, and told
me to tell the faithful followers of Christ that their hearts are under
a great attack today, and the evil of this world will try to destroy
them with a power the world has not yet experienced.  He told me that
Satan would use the lust of our hearts to turn the children away from
the Father, away from their first love, and the light of truth.  We will
be asked to compromise our faith to justify the evil that our hearts can
not reject.  Most will know the good way, but the evil lust in our
hearts will not let us follow the path to righteousness and eternal
life.  Only the strongest will survive.

But here is where the importance of the dream comes into the place, it
is to help us to understand what is happening to us and to prepare us
for the fight to come.  In order for us to hold onto our first love, we
are reminded that this life is but a dream.  We will soon look back to
see who was the master of our earthly dreams, who is the love of our
hearts, and who do we allow to rule our spirits.   Those who we thought
were dead, died only in our dreams, and we will soon awaken to see that
all our tears where for nothing, just as we now awaken from a long
night’s dream to see that all of our fears have vanished.  So will it be
for the children of the Father, but how foolish and sad others will feel
when they realize that the lusts and pride of their temporary dreams
have stolen the reality of eternity from them.  They have let Satan
blind them, as he steals their future with the lust and pride of our
temporary earthly dream. We chose to wallow in our own evil mines,
rather than to reject our animalistic desires so that we might focus on
the loving light of the Father.

Often when we awaken from a bad dream we think how stupid our dream was,
and when we awaken form this earthly life, we will see how stupid our
meaningless earthly desires and knowledge were.  But what a joy it will
be to awaken knowing that our lives are found worthy of the price paid
by Jesus on the cross of Calvary.  I did not realize I was still
dreaming that night, until the very moment when the alarm clock rang out
for me, and so shall it be one day when the Master calls out our names.
Cast away your evil dreams now, while it is still in your hands to do
so.   Our dreams reflect the condition of our hearts and our souls.  It
comes down to a matter of love, who and what do we love the most.  Does
our love for the Father rule our hearts, or the meaningless dreams and
self-pride of this world?  There is a power in loving Jesus, which will
give us the strength to over come all of our dreams.  When we truly love
Jesus more than ourselves, then our dreams will no longer rule our

God bless the Body of Christ!

Is Hell Real, and Is Jesus The Only Way?

A good Christian friend, who I will call Terry, asked me a question
about what happens to all of the unsaved people who have never heard the
name of Jesus.  Following is her question, and my own personal
response.  What would your Response have been?

Terry wrote ---------- >
Hello!  I was wondering if you could answer a question that has always
been with me.  I have never to this day heard an answer to - that I
could back up with scripture.  So if you could answer the question, and
back it up with God's Word for me, I would so appreciate.

(1) I too believe, that you "must be born again".  But what about the
huge population of people who live where there is no Christianity, where
the words of Jesus were never brought to their ears?  So, they go
straight to hell?  What about those that are brought up in completely
(and sometimes isolated) different cultures and are raised on a
different belief or religion?  Do they go to hell too?  Since the
majority of the earth's population is NOT Christian, does that mean they
all go to hell?

Joe wrote -------------- >
Here is wisdom for the child of the Father, reality is that there is no
one else in the whole world except ourselves and the Father.
Understanding this, where are our “but’s “ and ” whys”?

As you well know being born again is more than just words which we speak
with others, it is an existence in which the spirit is freed from the
physical, and all things are seen through the loving eyes of Christ.  We
are no longer satisfied with the things of this world because we know
this world is no longer our home, as it only tries to pull us from our
heavenly Father.  The temporary nature of our present world was created
just for us, as a well-planned garden is prepared for the good fruit to
be planted there. There may be weeds in the garden, but the Master is
well aware of them and sends His workers into the fields to keep the
weeds from overcoming the good fruit planted there.  All things of this
world are for good, for those who love the Lord, for others there is
endless sorrow.

It may also help if we remember that the born again are only found in
the Christian faith because the born again life requires no special
meditation, is not restricted only to the holy, nor are previous lives
or cast required, no special chanting or repetition is needed, and death
has no sting.  Not even a Christian organization, rituals, or title is
required to attain the born again life since it is a personal spiritual
relationship between our heavenly Father and ourselves alone.  The born
again are one with Christ, loving all, but needing none other than our
Lord Jesus, the only Christ.

John 3:3-7
(3) Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  (4)
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he
enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?  (5) Jesus
answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water
and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.  (6)  That
which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the
Spirit is spirit.  (7) Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born

As the words of Jesus said plainly above, yet must be born again if you
are to enter into the kingdom of the Father.  The above words leave
little room for “but’s”.  There are no doubts in the hearts of the born
again, as we feel the same pain for the lost world as our Father has
felt for us from the beginning.  Even the word God loses its brightness
to the born again because we know that God is truly our only Father, and
we feel the power in the following scripture;

Matthew 23:9
(9) And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father,
which is in heaven.

It is the born again spirit which puts fire in the above words.  In the
very next verse the scriptures tell us that Jesus alone is to be called
Master, and there is only one Master for the born again child of the

Matthew 23:10
(10) Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.

If God is the Father, and Jesus is the Master or Shepherd, then we must
be the children or the sheep of the Master, but a stranger will not see
this nor fully understand.  To the stranger these are just clever words
having no power.

John 10:27
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

But not all are Christ’s sheep, they come from different flocks, they
may wear the clothes of a lamp, but they come to destroy, they come to
separate us from our true Father.  They may seem good, they may even
call themselves Christian, “but” they do not hear the one Master, and
they follow deceiving voices in the darkness.

 I John 2:18-19
(18) Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that
antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we
know that it is the last time.  (19) They went out from us, but they
were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would no doubt have
continued with us: but they went out, that they might be made manifest
that they were not all of us.

A good example of the above is found in the Muslim faith, they followed
Jesus, and then when the false prophet Mohammed spoke, they followed
him.  If I am truly in love with someone, am I happy with a stranger, or
will I seek only the one I love from all the others?   Perhaps my love
is a lie, and it is my own greed, fear, and desires which drive my
soul.  There is evil all around us pulling us from our Father, but even
evil has it’s purpose, because if there was no evil in the world, how
would we know what good is?  The Father allows many voices, but which do
we hear, and which do we follow?  The sheep will hear his Master’s voice
above all the others, but if there were no others, would we love our
Master the same?  If we had not heard about the great sacrifice that our
Master gave in trying to save us, would we love Him the same?  It is all
a matter of love, who do we really love above all else.   We are His
sheep, and we hear our Master calling, but we should not be surprised
that there are many who hear, but will not follow.

John 10:26
But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep,

We come into this material world alone, and we will pass through to the
other side alone, and all that is around us is to help mold and make us
into the image of our Father.  All that we whole dear in this material
world is as vapor, and will soon melt away.  It is our pure and loving
heart alone that sets our course for eternity, it is the pure and loving
heart that will hear the Master calling to the massive flocks.

“My sheep will hear my voice”.

Now let us look a little closer at the specifics of your question, “But
what about the huge population of people who live where there is no
Christianity, where the words of Jesus were never brought to their
ears?  So, they go straight to hell?”  Terry, it is because of such
people that Christ came down to this world of the lost, and it is now
because of our born again sight that we feel the same great sorrow as
our Master for the many lost which fill the world around us. We too see
the massive lost souls upon the earth and our hearts cry out for them,
“Father have mercy upon them, Father forgive them because they can’t
hear your voice and they don’t know what they are doing.  Father let me
go unto them and tell them the good knew, that you love them and You
have a place prepared for them if they will only come and accept it.”
It is our love for them that makes us go into the darkness of the garden
to show them the way out.  The Father loved the children of the world so
much that He gave us His only begotten Son, so we would see with our own
eyes the way out of the darkness.  It is why we tell the world the “Good
News” about Jesus, that the very light of the Father has come into the
world to show the children of darkness the way out, the way to eternal
life.  However we must accept the gift of the Father’s love in order to
receive the light which will transform us from the image of Adam, back
into the image of the Father.  If we do not accept the wonderful gift of
the Father then He will sadly leave us were we are. Note, I did not say
we would be cast into hell, just that we will be left where we are.  Let
us look a little closer to see just where we are.

John 14:6
(6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 3:16-21
(16) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting
life. (17) For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
but that the world through him might be saved.  (18) He that believeth
on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already,
because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of
God.  (19) And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the
world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds
were evil. (20) For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither
cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. (21) But he that
doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest,
that they are wrought in God.

Note that the word hell is not mentions in any of the above passages,
but the verses above which are often overlooked are John 3:20-21.  It is
not that we will be cast into hell, it is that we refuse to enter the
light of the Father’s kingdom ourselves.  It is our own action, which
seals our future, the Father forces no one to love Him.  He has been
pleading with mankind from the beginning to reject the evil darkness,
and to come into His eternal loving light.  Through Christ, the Father
has removed the darkness from this evil world so that we might see Him
and reject the darkness.  The Father has sent us many messengers of
light over the centuries pleading for us to turn from our evil ways, but
His final offer comes from His only begotten Son, that who so ever
believeth in Him should not die, but have everlasting light.  What more
could a loving Father do?

We should not forget that death is not an end, it is only a separation,
and we can never return to where we were before the death.  Adam had
eternal life in the garden, but love and peace were not enough, he
wanted to have the full power of God, he chose his on knowledge over the
knowledge of his Father, and after this Adam was no longer in the image
and goodness of his loving Father.  After that none were in the image of
the loving Father, except Jesus Himself, the only one, the only begotten

 Romans 3:23
(23) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

Adam’s entire race falls short of the glory of the Father, as their
hearts are evil in the sight of the Father.  They surely know good from
evil, but their hearts cannot reject the evil which rules in the corners
of their souls.  It is the born again who see their error, and reject
evil for the goodness of the Father and His only begotten Son..

Romans 5:12
(12) Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by
sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

We suffer Adams fate because we are in his image, we are his children,
his likeness, and we are sinful beings.

Romans 5:17-21
(17) For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they
which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall
reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.  (18) Therefore as by the offence of
one judgment came upon all men to condemnation; even so by the
righteousness of one the free gift came upon all men unto justification
of life.  (19) For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners,
so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.  (20) Moreover
the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded,
grace did much more abound:  (21) That as sin hath reigned unto death,
even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by
Jesus Christ our Lord.

As we ask our “why” questions, we need to remember that the earth is
presently outside of the walls of heaven as is shown in the following
verse where Satan is cast down from heaven into the earth with all of
his angles.

Revelation 12:9
(9) And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the
Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into
the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

However the light of the Lord presently walks among us here on earth,
otherwise there would be no goodness in the world at all, there would be
no light for our souls to cling to.  It also helps if we remember that
death is truly not an end, it is just a separation from our present form
of life.  The only question is where will this new life abide, in the
presence of the Father, or left in the eternal darkness outside of
heaven when the light of the Father is taken away from this earth of

Matthew 8:12
(12) But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer
darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

For me there can be no greater hell, than to be cast out of my Father’s
wonderful light, never again to see His loving face, or to feel His love
for me.  If we can imagine a place where there is no good thought or
deed, then we begin to get a glimpse of what the outer darkness is
really like.  If we have lost a child or other loved one in this life,
then we can begin to feel the pain and tortures of the outer darkness,
when the loving light of the Father is removed from our souls, when all
love is removed from our souls.  The evil sprits presently around us
would rather live in a pig in the Father’s light, than to be returned to
the endless darkness.

Matthew 8:29-32
(29) And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee,
Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the
time?  (30) And there was a good way off from them an herd of many swine
feeding.  (31) So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out,
suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.  (32) And he said unto
them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine:
and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place
into the sea, and perished in the waters.

When the evil spirits are separated from the Father’s light, there will
surely be gnashing of teeth.

Now for those who have never heard the human word Jesus, we need to
understand that Jesus was here long before the world began, He is here
now, and not one minute has passed in any human life that Christ has not

2 Timothy 1:9
Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to
our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given
us in Christ Jesus before the world began,

Christ has always been here working in the hearts of His sheep, but
mankind needed more than Christ’s voice to survive, and that is why the
Father sent His most wonderful light into the world so that we might
have sight, and believe.  It is the gospel, the Good News, that Jesus
Christ has finally come in person so we might see face to face the Son
the Father, and follow Him, so that we might understand what love really

2 Timothy 1:10
But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ,
who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light
through the gospel:

So before Jesus walked upon this land as a man, He was always here
speaking to the hearts of His sheep, just as He is doing today.  The
only difference is that some of us now are lucky enough to have seen the
record of His own example, and He has shown us a way to save ourselves
from ourselves.  It is a pure and loving heart that justified Noah
before the Father, but in all of the earth, Noah was the only one who
possessed such a heart.   I’m sure there where many in Noah’s days who
we might think were nice people, but the Father looked into the nature
of there hearts, not at their beautiful human words or works.  I don’t
think the Father has ever been interested in our churches, rituals, or
titles, He is only interested in the inner temple, the one where we
stand before Him alone with the goodness and evilness of our own souls.

After Noah mankind fell back into their own evil ways, and as Adam they
let evil rule their hearts, rejecting the light for the darkness.  But
the Father loved us so much that He offered His only begotten Son, but
will the world of Adam listen, will they now follow the human voice of
the Master, or will they still be like those in the days of Noah and
listen to their own desires?  We don’t know the hearts of others, only
the Father knows that, and only the Father will accept them or reject
them when their journey here in the garden is complete.  But we today
have heard the human words of Jesus, and to whom much is given, much is
required. There are many good and evil souls walking upon this earth
today just as there were in Noah’s day, but they will all soon bow down
before the one Father, the creator of good and evil.   Are all those
around us going to hell, I cannot say because I do not know their hearts
and Jesus alone will be their judge, because He alone knows the pureness
of their hearts.  I do know that no one will pass into heaven without
Jesus Christ’s approval.  As we try to share the good news of Jesus,
only His sheep will hear and follow.  The words of Jesus are now heard
around the world, and many hear their Master and follow Him, but many
hear other voices and they go astray.  We cannot make them come into the
light, just as no one else can bring us into the light, we must want to
come ourselves, that is the only way the Father will accept us.  Nothing
else is required because He loves us anyway, He loves us just as He
found us and He knows a repenting heart.

John 14:6
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Let me finish with a few scriptures, which I think cover this situation,
but it depends upon which view we take, the heavenly, or human logic.

Matthew 19:30
But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

Matthew 7:22-24
(22) Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied
in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done
many wonderful works?  (23)  And then will I profess unto them, I never
knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.  (24) Therefore
whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken
him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:

So many who judge others, and say they alone understand, and they alone
have the law may be sadly surprised when they come before the Master,
because Christ alone knows the goodness of our souls. There is another
scripture which simplifies the entire thing for me, and that is when
Jesus said the following words Himself;

Matthew 22:35-40
Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting
him, and saying, (36) Master, which is the great commandment in the
law?  (37) Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. (38)  This
is the first and great commandment.  (39)And the second is like unto it,
Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  (40) On these two
commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

Note that all of the law and the prophets hang on these two
commandments.  Do these two with a pure heart and you have done all that
is required.  I personally believe that if an Eskimo living on the top
of the world alone can do these two things, then I believe our Lord
Jesus will hold true to His word.  But the question is, will the Eskimo
be able to do these two things without someone telling him what is
required?  Perhaps the goodness of his soul will tell Him as He listen
to the inner voice of his Master calling, just as the Master called all
of those before He appeared in flesh upon this human garden, just as He
is calling His sheep today.   The born again will see the Eskimo, and
say in their hearts, the Eskimo does not hear the Master’s voice, so I
must go tell him the good news that Jesus Christ lives.  I believe those
are the very same words that Jesus must have said to the Father when He
came down to this dark world to save you, the Eskimo, and me.  The born
again are no longer in the image of Adam, but they are in the very image
of Christ.

Here is wisdom for the child of the Father, reality is that there is no
one else in the whole world except ourselves and the Father.
Understanding this, where are our “but’s “ and ” whys”?

(2) Also, my little nephews had a friend (9 years old) that lived across
the street from them.  This little boy was killed in a horrible accident
last spring.  My sister-n-law said that her oldest boy (11) said that he
felt bad that this little boy that died must be in hell now because his
parents were Jewish so he was not saved and is in hell. I was
horrified.  I asked her what did she say to him, and she said what could
she say.  You must be born again.  If not, you go to hell.  I am not a
believer that Jesus casts little Jewish children into hell.

Matthew 19:14
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come
unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus rejects no one, it is we who must reject Him.  The battle for our
souls is not fought in streets, in buildings, in rituals, in words, in
certain human organization, or in a certain length of time, the battle
for our souls is fought in the heart of every human, and only the Father
knows the depths of the heart.  Only the Father knows His sheep, whether
they are small unborn babies, or old men like me.   The children are not
cast away, they were only on loan to us for a short time to help teach
us, and to mold us into the image the Father had planned for us from the
beginning.   Look at the impact that your neighbor child has had on your
life alone, could it be that it has changed you?  All things work for
good, for those who love the Lord.  But who is the lord that we love?
No, the children are not guilty, they have not rejected the love of the
Father, but only the Father knows that for sure.  If I am a child of the
Father, and die at the age of five, then I will be immediately in my
Father hands.  If I am not a child of the Father, then I will remain
with my master.  No human knows for sure, only Christ has that
knowledge, and He alone will be the judge.  If we can love a neighbor
child, just think how much more Christ loves them.  Christ is in the
saving business, not in the rejecting business.

Here is wisdom for the child of the Father, reality is that there is no
one else in the whole world except ourselves and the Father.
Understanding this, where are the “but’s “ and the” whys”?
Terry, I hope all of this has helped, if not the fault is within me, and
not within the Father who I wish to serve.

 Father, forgive this humble servant, take these inadequate words and
add your loving light, as you have desired.  Forgive me where my words
fail You, and erase the errors in the hearts of those who read them.

May the loving light of the Father never stop filling your soul.

Your brother in Christ always,

Faith That Can Move Mountains

Do you really believe that Faith can move mountains, or is this just
another old saying of the Bible, which is only there to make us feel
good.  We say to ourselves that God could move a mountain if He wanted,
but I haven’t seen Him do it in my life.   Is such faith only for the
great prophets, or was it meant to be for the smallest of the Father’s
children.  Do you have the faith to move mountains, or do you leave that
in the hands of our Christian leaders and missionaries?   I would
suggest that if we do not have the faith to move mountains, then we must
question the reality of our salvation.  If we are still restrained by
the physics and knowledge of this world, then perhaps we have only been
reborn in words and not in the spirit.  Mountains are for the earth
bound, and until we see them through the eyes of the sprit, then we will
never overcome them, and we will remain their slaves.

I recently had a lifetime dream full filled when I got a chance to go to
Alaska with my family to see Mount McKinley, the highest mountain in
North America.  When we arrive at the foot of the mountain it was
raining and very foggy.  I asked one of the hotel representatives about
the weather forecast, as we would be leaving the next day.  He told me
that it was a very unusual situation, as there were three major storm
fronts coming into the area that day.  He said we would probably not see
the mountain for another week to 10 days, if then.  He also said that it
was kind of like Alaska’s version of “The Perfect Storm”.  I could see
the disappointment on my 13-year-old granddaughter’s face when she heard
the news.  Other members of my family where also very depressed because
of the dreariness that seem to hang in the rain filled air that day.  It
was at that moment that the words “Faith can move mountains” came
flowing into my soul.  I immediately turn to my granddaughter, and said,
see those clouds, they are like our faith, our eyes are blinded because
we cannot yet see beyond them, but we know by faith that the beautiful
mountain is there just beyond our sight.  If our faith is great enough
we will be able to see through the clouds to the beautiful mountain
standing just beyond our sight.   So we planted ourselves on the back
deck of the hotel and waited for what seemed to be an impossible event.
Another  hotel employee told me I should not be disappointed with the
rain, as over 60 percent of the people who come to Mount McKinley never
get to see it because of the bad weather created around it’s 20.000 foot

But at about 1 PM the clouds started to slowly lift, and you could hear
the excitement start to grow as a few others come out to the deck
searching for a glimpse of the mountain.   Then we saw some beautiful
mountain peaks starting to show up in the distant clouds, and we thought
for sure that it was Mount McKinley.  But a hotel employee said, “No
those are just the foot hills, when you see Mount McKinley, you will
know it.”   By this time the deck was full of people searching for just
a small glimpse of the mighty mountain, as no one thought any mountain
could be higher than those now standing before us.  Then suddenly there
she was, unbelievably towing far above the other 14,000-foot mountains,
with a snow covering that shinned brighter than all of the mountains at
her feet.  I cannot explain the magnificence of that beautiful mountain
standing there in the bright sunlight, no longer hidden by the clouds.
I turned to my granddaughter and said, “See if we have enough faith, all
things are possible”.  I will never forget the smile on her face.  That
very morning we could not see it, but we had faith that it was there,
and now we see our faith face to face”.  The storm had passed.

I thank the Father for teaching this humble servant what power there is
in our simple faith, and truly we can move mountains if it glorifies the
Father.  When we see our Father face to face, then all of the mountains
and trials of this world will simple melt away, not one will be left
standing.  We Christians now see dimly with our faith, but if we hold
fast, then we will soon see clearly face to face.  Our faith tells us
Jesus Christ is the ONLY begotten Son of the Father, and soon the clouds
will be lifted from the souls of mankind, and all will see our wonderful
savior face to face.  That is a promise, just watch and see.

With the Lord at our side, we can truly move mountains.

Nahum 1:3
and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

Your brother in Christ always.

Stained Glass Christian

Lord I stand here before you, stained and worn,
My window of life is darkened, by Satan’s evil storms.

But Your love for me keeps wiping, my blood stained sin away,
Your beautiful light keeps shinning, through the darkness of this window
of clay.

Others can see the Your light there, as it struggles to shine through,
They see the colors of the rainbow, as your loving light break through.

Oh Lord let Your crimson blood, wipe all my stains away,
Let them see Your light there shinning, as it arises across Your crystal

Take this stained glass window, change it this very day,
Let your light from heaven shine through to others, in this world of
I love You Lord

Face to Face

What will it be like, when I stand before my Lord face to face,
Will He know me, or will I stand there in complete disgrace.

My life will flow by before me, for all of heaven to see,
How can the Lord of heaven, ever forgive a sinner like me.

But as I write these words to you, His gentle voice comes to me,
Don’t you know child how much I love you, you will never be taken from

I want to share His love with you, Oh please come and listen you will
Jesus Christ the King of glory, can even love a sinner like me.

What joy now awaits us, for all who call upon His name,
He will fill our lives with glory, and take away all our endless shame.

So Father of all heaven, I now to the world proclaim,
Jesus Christ is my King forever, and I will never again be the same.

Lord, Help Me To Understand!

Lord, where does this life lead, help me to understand,
we cry and scream when we enter, and do the same at the end of life’s

We see the beauty, of each new day and sing,
but we’re daunted, by the sadness that our failures bring

What is this strange creature called man, that you’ve made,
he studies his life long, just to go to a dark and empty grave

But maybe, that is what we do not understand,
that man was not made to live, in this earthly land

We are being formed, for a life we cannot see or understand,
one standing by you Lord, in your heavenly promised land

A land where crying, and failures are unknown,
where death and sadness, are replaced with a beautiful new song

Oh Lord, help my understanding to see
thy plan for me, and the Promised Land to be

Let me not turn away, cry or fret,
but stand fast in thee Lord, until the task here on earth is met

Let all men understand, thy great and glorious plan,
that all the time we were here, we were really in your hands.

Without You Father

Father as this earth soars, through the limits of outer space,
how dark and dreadful it would be, without Your light and loving grace.

Without You Father, there is no truth or light,
we live to die in darkness, without ever getting the answer to the
question - why?

What good is all the knowledge, we have gained during our flight,
we comprehend the universe, but without You it is soon taken from our

The atheists say we are freaks of nature, flung into outer space,
with no meaningful past, no future, and surly no way to escape.

But they do not hear Your voice Father, even though You cry out to them
they don’t understand that they are allowed here, only by Your mercy and
loving grace.

They cannot see that without You Father, there would be no love in their
without You,  there is nothing but darkness and endless black skies.

Let them see thee Father, so they will know there is one greater than
one who can save them from the darkness, and lift them up from the
endless grave.

But Father no matter what the world, or others may do and say,
I will follow Your Jesus forever, because I know He is the light which
guides my way.

Thank you Father for the light of Christ, as He stand there before us so
He has already turned my darkness, into eternal light.

I love you Father, I love You Lord Jesus
