Should we fear asking God the TOUGH questions?

Should we fear asking God the TOUGH questions?

There is a is a very heated topic and highly debated question that has been going on for a LONG TIME in the world.  Maybe even in our own hearts and minds at times…  I know I have grappled with it my fair share in my search for the real and highest truth God reveals in his Word.

And we often aggressively defend our own position as if in a life and death struggle.  The question?

“Does the Bible have any CONTRADICTIONS”? 

There, I said it.  The cat’s out of the bag.

So, what you think?  Are there any contradictions in the Bible?

Have you looked into it out yourself

Are we STILL crucifying Jesus in 13,035 ways?

Are we STILL crucifying God’s Word in 13,035 ways?

Yesterday I shared a powerful thing I was seeing about the possible ongoing crucifixion of God’s word due to there being 13,035 words in the original scriptures that were NOT TRANSLATED into ANY English words at all.

If you haven’t read that, please read it here.   This message is a continuation of that one.

Did you know that at least 13,035 original words of scripture were not translated into ANY words at all?  They were simply “overlooked”, ignored, and “abandoned”.  Today, I hear more and it is shocking how God seems to be putting this all together into “one” in my mind.

Could there be a MUCH HIGHER and much more powerful truth at work here?

God's Fire in the cloud

God’s Fire in the cloud

Friends and fellow truth seekers.

I sense Big and mighty things are coming.

There is about to be a revival like we have NEVER seen before.  And it’s not from the ones we call “religious”.  Although I hope they will join.  It’s up to God.

Amongst the revival there will be a huge spiritual battle too.  God will give victory and when he does, WE WILL win!

I am about to start UNPACKING and UNLOADING things simply as I see them.  I must have balance in order to be able to continue to deliver what I hear.

Maybe you can help somehow?Continue reading

 “I AM… DEBT… FREEEEEE!!!!!”?

Is unfinished work a debt?

Is unfinished work a debt?

Have you ever heard the callers call into Dave Ramsey’s national radio talk show and scream those very powerful words?

You can hear the freedom in their voices and screams after they paid off their debts and often EVEN their house.   You can feel the joy in your heart as you celebrate with them and can’t wait to join their ranks.

I have always followed the idea of being “totally debt free”.  I mean house and everything.   But, recently, I have discovered there may be MORE things than money that are keeping me in bondage.

Is owing money to a person or a bank the ONLY kind of debt there is?Continue reading

women are true love

Are the women of this world the reflection of God’s true love?

Click here to read about my powerful morning...

This morning in my studies and quiet time many deep and amazing things are being connected for me and I ever so grateful to the Lord for that.

I am beginning to see powerful glimpses of the TRUE hierarchy of things in the hidden realm of the Spirit.  What I am seeing in “pieces” is surprising (yet some parts not so surprising) and wonderfully beautiful.

I keep wanting to share more specifics about these powerful “glimpses”, but feel I can’t quite get a strong “foothold” or foundation to start from.

Why?

He just keeps going deeper and deeper.  I feel “settled” and then something else shows up that is even deeper… and deeper…. and deeper.  I am constantly realizing there is NO end to the glorious depths of our wonderful father.  So, we must starts somewhere or we may never start at all.

So, the question and “theme” that comes to me most today is…

Are women the TRUE servants who most exemplify God’s true, sacrificial love?

My heart screams YES!

Remember the words of Jesus “the last will be first and the first will be last“?  Matt 19:30, 20:16  (Men this may be a great scripture to ponder…)

Look at all the wonderful things they have done for us in this world.  Isn’t it amazing?Continue reading

I heard a quote this morning and it really struck “a cord” in me.  Maybe you will be fed by it too.

“God’s (highest) truth is the most beautiful thing we can ever discover but we can’t work directly for it. We must focus on the image and shadow version of him called “hard work, self-sacrifice,  and charity to others“. He is hidden inside the darkness and he appears as a free gift of light and life to us all to be revealed in his time” Unknown

I am still learning this one…so please be patient and forgiving with me when I stumble.

Have a great day.

Is there more to "sin", "son" and "sun" than we realize?

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

If anyone studies the birth and early life accounts of Matthew and Luke closely, they will soon notice a huge

Jesus birth year

What year was Jesus born according to the Bible?

problem.  One that the most brilliant scholars and minds of today can not answer.

The birth year of Jesus.

It’s the year “0” isn’t it?  Well, we know there is no year “0” as the calendar went from 3 BCE to 2 BCE, 1 BCE to 1 AD/CE, 2 AD/CE, 3 AD/CE, right?

But, his birth marks the change of our entire calendar system.  Yet there is a year missing.  The year “0” that “divides” one side from the other.  Ponder that.  It’s powerful and amazing.

Genesis 1 creation

Does Genesis 2:4 reveal more that we realize?

Yesterday I shared about the powerful transition and change of point of view between Genesis 1 and 2.

Have you noticed this?

You can review that writing here.

This powerful transition occurs in one single verse – Genesis 2:4. I believe this verse is one of the most powerful verses in all of the Bible because it has so many transitions in it.

I believe if we can understand and see this truth, it will unlock man’s current situation better than ever before. Genesis and our current, daily life will begin to make amazing sense.Continue reading

Ever ask “What does the Bible say is true RIGHT NOW in this very present moment of space and time?”

This is very interesting to me.  It is the idea and truth of where the Bible meets this exact PRESENT moment.

God destroy Bibles?

What is true right now according to the Bible?

That is what I am most fascinated about.  I believe God is with us right now this very moment doing inside us whatever it is we are doing.  The true God is in the everyday things doing them with us and AS us.  Think about that today.  It’s very powerful when it hits a person.  It will even make you shed some tears as to how the creator of all things also helps you check the air in your tires or discipline your child.

So, is the Bible an antiquated book that is no longer very relevant to our modern times?

Or is it even more relevant today as we near the end of an age?

What does the Bible say about right now, at this very present moment.  Surely there must be a Greek or Hebrew word meaning this very present moment where you are?  For me, it is Friday October 31st 2014 at 9:10am and I am sitting at my computer in my home.

There is a word for “the very present moment”.  Actually, more than one.  So, are you curious like me and want to know what it is and where God’s Word INTERSECTS with us RIGHT NOW?

This is awesome and mind-blowing to think about what it reveals.Continue reading
