COVID FREE!

Good morning everyone and Happy Thursday!

As I write this to you I am almost 100 percent COVID free! What a challenging time this has been. It definitely has changed my perspective on this topic and I would not wish this on anyone….My wife and I had a “mild” case and it was Hell; I can’t imagine what people go through that have had it alot worse than we did…

So, many of you used to follow my blog and for various reasons I stopped writing. I am praying about writing a book and would like to know who all is still out there following this blog. If you are could you kindly “like” this entry as I am starting the process of thinking about where to write this. (I’m not even sure what I am going to write about, just know it will be weird LOL).

I pray that all of you out there are doing well and as always I appreciate you all. Looking forward to interacting with you all again soon!

God Bless,

David

I’m Enough For Now

I may not be perfect but I’m me.

I may not fit inside anyone’s box, but I’m genuine.

I may not be the perfect Christian, but Jesus knows my heart and He has a plan.

I will never be what the world or some of you expect but I will always be real and genuine for that is the only way I can ever get better.

For some that is enough,

For others it is not,

Either way, it’s ok.

At the end, I will be all that God has called me to be.

In Jesus name,
D

Jesus Is Lord!

Good morning again and Happy Sunday! I hope you all made it through the work week unscathed and are ready for a nice relaxing weekend. It was a tough one for me I know in all areas; Spiritually, Physically, and Mentally so I am hoping for a bit of a break from the battle, Amen?

Ok so I have really been on this struggle bus if you will between telling the Truth’s of the Gospel and yet still not causing division in the process. I mean, what good is telling others the Truth about Jesus if they aren’t going to listen because of the content of your message. In this world we live in now, if it isn’t a message about self love and “what’s in it for me?” most don’t listen. Want to know what I’ve discovered today? It’s impossible….

As with all things let us look at Jesus’ ministry shall we?

1. He only had twelve disciples; one of which was being controlled by Satan.

2. Very few people He encountered understood what He was saying much less acted upon it.

3. People hated Him because of the message He brought.

4. Even His own disciples doubted His message at times.

5. In the Garden, even Jesus was so distraught over the Truth of what was going to happen, He was sweating blood! (Luke 22:44)

So, with all of that, do you think my results will be any different? I would say that if the Son of God Himself faced all of these things, its a good bet that I will as well. Amen? So what to do….Well, I can just give up and sit in the corner waiting for Jesus to return or I can do what Jesus did and just continue to tell the Truth in Love of His Gospel message. Will I offend people? Yep. Will people block and unfriend me? Yep. Will people even get angry and insult me? Yep. But you know what? No matter what they do to me will ever match up to what Jesus had to endure. The same goes for all of you; don’t be afraid today, be BOLD!

And with that here are some plain and simple Truths…

1. There is a God that created everything in the Universe including you and me. (We did not come from pond scum)

2. Jesus of Nazareth was a real person on this planet that had a ministry that produced many miracles. (And oh by the way, that person was also God’s only Son and the Savior of all mankind.)

3. Jesus died a real death on the Cross of Calvary and endured physical suffering like no other.

4. Three days after His death, He rose again and appeared to hundreds if not thousands of people.

5. After a time, He ascended back to Heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father until His calling to come back.

6. He WILL becoming back, except this time in Judgment for those that refused to follow God and the way of true love through Christ.

7. Those that have given their heart to Jesus will enter into Heaven with Jesus for all eternity. Those that do not will live their eternity in a VERY REAL PLACE called HADES. (I promise you it exists…..)

8. No matter what you have done, you can still come to Jesus today! He loves you more than you can imagine and is there for you. All you have to do is ask! Jesus is a gentleman and will never force His way into your heart; you have to invite Him in.

9. No one goes to the Father BUT THROUGH HIM (Jesus). Not Mary, not Paul, not Saint whoever, JESUS AND JESUS ALONE IS THE WAY TO THE FATHER!

10. You are not promised tomorrow so secure your future today! (Also, secure your present; Jesus said we can experience the Kingdom of God right here!)

Friends, I hope you take some time to digest all of this and evaluate where you stand. Time is short and the decision to make may be made for you if your not careful. I appreciate and love all of you and if you agree with these Truths, please share this message with someone today! (Reblog, repost, like, whatever, just share it). Not for my glory, but for His! Amen!

Talk soon,

David

Let It Go!

Hello everyone and Happy Saturday! This get your attention? I know it can be annoying but Frozen is one of my favorite all time Disney movies and honestly can’t wait to see the upcoming Broadway version. So many positive messages in this movie along with some God inspired vocals for sure. The Frozen “Let it Go” is not what this message is about however so get ready to really Let it Go!

Colossians 3:15  “And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful.

So often in our lives we deal with daily struggles and with that we are always looking for a way out of those struggles. Health issues, job issues, just every day life issues are always disrupting us and preventing us from having peace. More than anything worrying picks us up in the air and face-palms us right into the ground, But what I find fascinating is that the resource for escaping all of this is right in front of us yet we avoid it like the plague; Jesus.

You see when we make Jesus our Savior, like the passage above says, He gives us a peace inside of us that we can tap into whenever we need it. We have died to our former selves and now have become a “new creation” in Christ Jesus! Yet, we continue to look for earthly ways to obtain that peace and then wonder why we always struggle.

I often hear that its not easy to do; of course it isn’t! You have an Enemy who hates the very fiber of your existence who is always whispering that you have no hope! But the devil is a liar and so are those words! No earthly words, preaching, or advice can give you what the peace of Jesus Christ can, NOTHING! Yet we turn to “experts” on YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, yes even WordPress before we go to the only One that can give us what we desire so greatly.

Friends, as a Christ follower you have two choices here; One- you continue to live for the world and live a life of worry, struggle, depression, and frustration. Or two- You place ALL of the worry, struggle, depression, and frustration in your life and give it to Jesus where He will replace that with a peace beyond understanding. I told my middle son the other day that I honestly fear nothing anymore and its true! I struggle still yes but with God in my life, what do I need to fear? Fear this decaying peace of meat that is only a vessel to get around this planet? Nothing can destroy the real me that is inside and that God will always protect.

Today everyone, just LET IT GO! Break the chains of worry, fear, and frustration and watch Jesus change your life!

In Christ,

David

It’s Jesus Time

For the afternoon crowd. God Bless!

Radically Saved

Good morning everyone! Welcome to Friday! I know that is has been a while since I have written in this blog. Needless to say 2020 has been a bit distracting. However, I was blessed enough to get a really nice laptop that my wife agreed to and so I am back with my first post in a while. Forgive me if my writing skills have faded a bit, I’m sure they will be back shortly…

So, 2020, we have just about seen it all. Plagues, riots, economy in shambles, you name it, we have seen it. Never before in my life have I seen our country, heck our world, in such disarray. For me as a Christ Follower, however, it is not unexpected.

See, the Bible has predicted all of this thousands of years ago. That the world would go through a time like never seen before. A little secret…

Why So Angry?

Fools give full vent to their rage but the wise bring calm in the end.

Proverbs 29:11

Good morning everyone and welcome to another installment of Radically Saved! I want to thank each of you that have prayed for my family this week as my Bride had to endure another surgery. She is home now and resting but it breaks my heart to see her continually have to go through this stuff. God is good though and is getting her through it. So, thanks again and keep those prayers coming!

Since my Twitter account has taken off in recent weeks, I have way more exposure to things that I used to never see. One of those things is an anger that is frustrating to see. Now I’m not talking about the “left” or the “liberals”, “atheists”, whichever label you want to give them; no this anger is from self professed Christian Brothers and Sisters. Friends, this is disturbing…

For example, yesterday I posed this question (which admittedly was for a dual purpose, one to get a genuine answer, but also to see the level of disdain people would have who did not agree with their position).

“Which of the following do you believe in”

  1. Pre-Trib Rapture
  2. Post-Trib Rapture
  3. No Rapture

As expected this question, at least to me, revealed a lot of hearts. Not because of their answer but because of their reaction. For many it was almost like people were questioning one’s salvation if they did not agree with their answer. (Most answered Pre-trib as expected). It also showed a level of closed mindedness that I would not expect from a Believer in Christ.

Friends, no matter what you believe about the Rapture, it is still a THEORY. A theory I might add that was not even discussed until fairly recently on the Spiritual timeline. So chances are we are ALL wrong about the events that include Jesus’ Return for His Bride.

So why the anger and hostility? Are we all so educated and smart when it comes to Scripture that there is NO chance that you could be wrong on your position? Now if we were discussing the fact that Jesus is the Son of God I would say yes! There is no discussion on that! But this is something that none of us truly understands, YET, our anger is way out of control here.

Its not just this topic either, so many think they are “experts” in the field and when they are challenged, they turn into the character above. Is this an attribute of Christ? Do you not think Jesus was challenged on the validity of His claims? Did He ever once start a fight or insult others based on their disagreement with Him? No and neither should we…

So, in closing, two things:

  1. Even if you feel strongly about a position you have, never be so closed minded that you can’t be teachable. Only One person was perfect and its not you or me.
  2. Always respond to others that disagree with you in love. Believe it or not, even in this crazy world, two people can disagree with each other and still be respectful.

Friends, today let us fall more in love with Jesus Christ than ever before. And in doing so, let us be more like Him in ways we may have thought impossible before. Let the world see that we are truly different, that we have the very Light of God Himself in us, and that we are approachable for positions that may differ from theirs. Just because someone does not live their faith exactly like you do, does not make it any less real. Amen?

Agape Love,

David

Restore us, O Lord God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved! – Psalm 80:19

Hello friends and welcome to the weekend. I hope that all is well and your relationship with Jesus grows every single day. On that note, lets get started…

So in case you haven’t noticed, the world around us is quite literally going to Hell. There are too many reasons I could list, but suffice it to say, our world is totally run by demonic forces at every turn. Now, even believers are being affected like never before. There is no unity in the body as we debate furiously about how smart we are in God’s Word, judging everyone that doesn’t act exactly as we do, and heck even promoting the very sin that many are trying to flee on a daily basis.

So it hit me yesterday….We need a Revival! A Revival of the likes the world has never seen. A time where all believers unite under the Word of God and prayerfully march upon the very gates of Hell and say with one voice; JESUS IS LORD OF LORDS and KING OF KINGS. That we would put our petty differences aside and as ONE body of Christ, show the lost (maybe for one last time) the Light of Jesus Christ.

Send a message to Lucifer himself that he has already lost the war and as God’s appointed people we are going to share the Truth of Christ to everyone we can and make sure he has as few people with him in the Lake of Fire as possible. (Yes, the Lake of Fire will be a very real place where you will spend eternity suffering if you continue to ignore the sacrifice God made so your debt could be paid.)

Ephesians 2:8-9

So who is with me? Who would like to slam down the doors of Hell itself and start a Revival like no one has ever seen? It’s up to all of us; in our daily lives and actions. We must start by praying that Jesus would fill us up with the Holy Spirit like never before and then listen to His guidance. Time on this world is getting shorter every minute, but there is still time to win a few more battles Amen?

Looking forward to hearing from each of you in this endeavour. If you are, please write your name in the comments below so I can pray for each of you. It’s time friends….

Agape Love,

David

Restore us, O Lord God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved! – Psalm 80:19

Hello friends and welcome to the weekend. For some of you, the weekend may have actually started yesterday for the Labor Day Weekend.

John Cooper-Skillet

Radically Saved

I am going to let what John Cooper stated the other day speak for itself; we would be wise to heed his words..(And listen to his music, just saying)

Blessings!

Ok I’m saying it. Because it’s too important not to. What is happening in Christianity? More and more of our outspoken leaders or influencers who were once “faces” of the faith are falling away. And at the same time they are being very vocal and bold about it. Shockingly they still want to influence others (for what purpose?)as they announce that they are leaving the faith. I’ll state my conclusion, then I’ll state some rebuttals to statements I’ve read by some of them. Firstly, I never judge people outside of my faith. Even if they hate religion or Christianity. That is not my place and I have many friends who disagree with my religion and that is 100% fine…
