Is there more to “sin”, “son” and “sun” than we realize?
I never cease to be amazed by God.
He works in such mysterious and yet simple, “everyday” ways. I was just talking to my younger teen “son” about our Sunday goals before I release him to his computer. I started to hear a thought in my head (probably based on one of his simple yet profound thoughts) about the words “sin”, “son” and “sun”.
I knew I need to go look deeper to see what was going on. I have trained myself to pay very close attention to all my thoughts. I believe they are very important if we want to truly hear from God.
I know that the “sun” shines on the “earth” in our physical reality or our natural body. But, in the Bible God sometimes uses “son” and “sun” interchangeably. Also, he sometimes uses the word “earth” interchangeably with “body”. (Our “body” is even made of the “dust of the earth”) I believe this is NOT a coincidence.Continue reading
Will God really reign down fire and hail upon us?
Once again this morning, I woke hearing a conversation.
Once I was fully awake, I began writing it down. This experience is like if you have ever gone camping with others and they awake before you do and sit and talk in the background while you are sleeping. When you “awake” you start to hear and understand more of what is being said. Then, when I was fully “awake” today, it stopped.
As I was studying the scriptures that I was led to (based on what I heard), they prompted me to write this message. I apologize for the serious tone of it. I think a person who knows God and his character will be amazed by it as was I.Continue reading
Remember the game we played as children called “find the difference” between two things?
That is what I get to do all day in my work of solving computer or network problems.
I have to find the difference between what they have now (a “problem”) and compare it to what they had before (the problem was present). If I can remove the difference (what changed) then the issue will be resolved and person very happy! Their computer or network has been “restored back to the truth”. That’s how I see my work… as “fighting the forces of evil”. 🙂
Maybe we can use this skill to study God’s original words he gave us and tell us when he is speaking about the same thing or something different?
Let’s see.Continue reading
Are feelings real?
Do you ever wake up one morning and suddenly everything appears dark and grim?
Situations and “things” that you viewed as very positive just the day before no longer appear that way at all. As a matter of fact, they seem to be a burden rather than a blessing.
You feel like you were somehow blindsided by a Mac truck in the middle of the highway. No, you feel you are STILL BEING RUN OVER by a Mac truck.
And is backing up and moving forward over and over.
You can’t even get a perspective to see what is happening. You just hear the engine rev and see the tires coming again.
If you could only get out from under “it” to see what in the world is going on.
Whatever “it” is.Continue reading
