Why is it so important to realize that God has many names in the Bible? Because He is everything. There is no life without Him. There is no peace without Him. There is no Earth or universe with its trillions of stars and planets and galaxies without Him. There would be no human race without Him. He is All Sufficient and All powerful so in fact He doesn’t need us but He wants a relationship with us, each one of us. But relationships, like love itself, cannot be forced, they have to grow over time which is why we have to choose to follow Him and love Him because He loved us first.

Don’t turn away from Him when you feel His Presence touching your heart and soul. His touch on your life and your heart is special because He deems you worthy of His love.

The names of God that I find the most endearing are El Elyon meaning the Lord Most High and Adonai meaning Lord and Master. Adonai is also plural encompassing the Holy Trinity as One.

In the Middle East, names denote your true self, your character so when you use God’s name it should be used in a reverent way with love. Because He is the embodiment of love.

God hates these things…


These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren. Proverbs 6:16‭-‬19 KJV https://bible.com/bible/1/pro.6.16-19.KJV

Too many…too few


Even after two thousand years there are still many places and people who still need to be reached for God’s Kingdom! In today’s world there seem to be more who don’t want to hear about the Savior Who gave His blood and His life for them. But we are still supposed to get the message out even if it is only a few who truly take it to heart. Why do we need to do this? Because it is our duty, it is our solemn duty because Jesus said it was our commission to take His message to ALL of the world. True, He was talking to His disciples but by extension it falls to us.

Even if all of the Christians in the world just told one person and that person told one or two people and each one accepted Jesus as their Savior, we could truly evangelize the world in a very short time. But not everyone is going to hear the message with their spiritual ears because it says in God’s Word, “many are called but few are chosen“. God does send His Spirit out into the world and some will accept His message and some will not. Why does the call of God’s Spirit touch some and not others? For the same reason that God said “Jacob I loved, Esau I hated” before they were born. He named them and He knew their futures before they were born.

I’ve heard people say that if God chooses who will be saved and who will not then there is no reason for us to tell them but it is still our job. Many people will never hear about Jesus or His message if we don’t take the message to them in some way. By preaching or in person and sometimes by our posts on this medium. Whichever way works to get the Lord’s message of grace and salvation out to those who are lost then that is the one we should use. Are we living in the last days? Yes! Some may be telling you that we aren’t, but if you read the prophecy books like Daniel, Isaiah, Ezekiel and Revelation, many of their prophecies have already come to pass. The only ones left are the taking up of the Bride of Christ (the church) and the seven years of tribulation.

Seek Him while there is time.

How do you feel?


In one of my favorite movies the computer is trying to teach Mr. Spock all that he should know in order for him to take his place on the bridge of the Enterprise. He answers all of the questions correctly except this one: How do you feel?

The computer repeats the question and his mother comes in to find him with a quizzical look on his face. She tells him that the computer knows that he is half human and it wants an answer. An answer that he doesn’t know how to give or even how to phrase correctly until the ending of the movie when he tells his father to tell his mother that he feels fine.

How do we feel in this world of contradictions and confusing twists that seem to show up in the news and in other places as well. Particularly in reference to so-called “sexual preference” or “sexual orientation”. These are states of being which our society today is telling us that we are born that way and we are not. God created each of us male or female. There are no third choices or choices of any kind when it comes to how you live your either are what you were born as or you aren’t. But how are you going to answer that question in front of God?

You will stand in front of Him as the person that you were meant to be not the one that surgery and chemicals caused you to look like someone else. Live your life as God made you to be not what your parents or society would choose for you.

God considers every person to be unique and special and worth the life of His Son to save your soul from hell. So regardless of how you may feel right now, today, God loves you. Don’t forget that.

Are we being tested?


So many claim to be Christians today but because of fear and misinformation very few are attending church services. So, what is coming next? In our time and in the next few weeks we will be voting for a President to continue his second term in office, if it is God’s will for that to happen. Many of us will get a flu shot or a COVID-19 shot and hope that it helps for a season. But…what about after that? What should we look for after all of this?

The news media and social media will tell everyone that our world is doomed whether our choice of candidate gets elected or not. Many people may even begin to go into survival mode and hoard more toilet paper and canned goods. Can we be certain of anything that we see or hear in media broadcasts today? If it is reported by a news organization or any media company I would have to say…NO! So what are we supposed to do about this uncertainty? Truthfully there is nothing that we, as individuals, can do except pray.

If you are a believer in Jesus and you have given your heart to Him then read His Word because most of the things which we are seeing and hearing on the TV or the Internet were foretold long before it started. The rise of knowledge and technology, which we have seen in the past century has happened. Israel became a Jewish nation again seventy-two years ago and now we are seeing so many people claiming that our history needs changing because it “hurts some people’s feelings”. How can we cope with all of this uncertainty? Read God’s Word! It will show you that God is not surprised by this. He knew thousands of years ago that this was coming.

Read the prophetic books like Isaiah and Daniel and Ezekiel. Then read in Matthew 24 and in the book of Revelation about how God will deal with the world that has been against Israel for so long. The best part is that the church, those who believe in Jesus for their salvation, is not punished during the Tribulation because we are not here! The world will be in a constant state of chaos and it will get worse as the months and years go by but only for seven years. Then Jesus will return to the Mount of Olives and He will end the Tribulation with the Word of God which will destroy the enemies of Israel. God loves Israel and those in the world who have believed in Jesus for their salvation.

God will not leave us and He hasn’t left us at any time. This trouble that we are going through now is just a way of testing the faith of the church. To see how much we are looking for Him and keeping our faith in His promises. I could be wrong but it seems that we, as the Church, are being tested. How long will this last? I don’t know but God does. Seek Him in all that you do and pray that He will convict you to become a Christian or to reaffirm and strengthen your faith during these troubled times. The test could be over in a few minutes or it may take a few years but by whatever time measurement you use, God is the only One who knows precisely when Christians (the church) will be taken home to be with Him.

I pray that all who claim to know Him are known by Him when this time comes. Amen

There will be millions rising to meet Him along with those who knew Him at the time of their death.
