Though at times I may have been late posting a sermon for Friday evening… just a time or two, lol. This week I totally forgot. Forgive me. Well, I remembered and then I forgot again. But with good reason. My son, Matthew was baptized this past Sabbath. My granddaughter, my son’s girlfriend, also a friend of my sons and I all came to the baptism. It was wonderful. And yes, I got a little teary eyed. Incredibly happy inside.
Btw, the pastor and my son have become good friends through the bible study in preparation for his baptism.
The back story… My son came to pick me up because my car is not in the best shape and I wasn’t sure it would make the over an hour drive. And… we were expecting a big snow storm. Freezing rain and all. The Lord in his mercy worked everything out. Truly. And all this while my own church did not have a service. He is able… you know.
Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV
20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ASK or “THINK”, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
I hope that all of you had a great Sabbath as well.
Earlier… as I was posting the video done by Steve Wohlberg, I was thinking of the verse that happens to be the “verse of the day”….. “As long as the earth endures, seedtime & harvest, cold and heat, summer & winter day & night will never cease…” Gens. 8:22
After that, I was playing a game to help keep my mind sharp… Wordscapes. It just so happened that at the bottom of it… it says… Start your day out talking to God. My son recently told me he had just started purposefully spending the first minutes of the day speaking with the Lord. That’s the way to begin your day, huh? And shouldn’t we all?
As always friends, I hope not only that you enjoy what I post on my website but that it is a blessing to you. Thank you.
The TRUTH about SATAN!
I suppose you could call this is a type of disclaimer… I usually put up or, “try” to put things that are correct as far as doctrine. I know you can distinguish that. This may not be totally spot on but I thought it was pretty good. And it gets to the real point of who our enemy is in this world.
I believe in my heart that Jesus will return. I don’t know exactly how soon that is, but I don’t believe it will be long from now. How do I know that? from the descriptions of what the Bible says will be happening shortly before he does come back. Some of the images in this video will be disturbing to children. I don’t suggest that you let them watch this.
I’d like to ask you to do something for me and that is, if you are a Christian please keep me in your prayers. I appreciate it. Thank you!

I personally have never been in favor of abortion for myself. I don’t get to choose for anyone else. Though I would encourage a woman in crisis not to have one. I have had circumstances in my life where I had been encouraged to have an abortion. I could not do it. And why… because I knew there was a God. This is prior to becoming a Christian.
I will probably write more about this subject in the future. Though one more thought. A man that I know has always been pro-choice. When the law came out that a child can be aborted not only up to actual birth but following birth murdering the child he said it was wrong. People know… even those who have no religious affiliation and in fact consider themselves agnostic.
I am so glad to see that there are those in the 7th Day Adventist Church who have come out in favor of Life for the unborn.

Raymond, D-Laredo, has introduced legislation that would toss out one of Texas’ age-old “blue laws” and allow liquor stores to be open seven days a week. Beer, wine and booze still would not be available before noon on Sundays, but the bill would increase the legal hours of operation for liquor stores to 9 a.m. to 10 p.m.
While looking for a recent account of a priest molesting children I came across this website. I didn’t know it existed.
Wouldn’t you think that Protestant churches would run from being associated with the Catholic church. Not so, though…
Rev 13:2 ….. and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat and great authority.
3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed ; and all the world wondered after the beast
,Note: In this article in addition to Joseph Jack Baker, 5 other priests in Michigan are being investigated.
A fellow at church mentioned this song this past Sabbath. He was telling me of a woman who sang this song at campmeeting one year and he just loved it. He couldn’t remember the woman’s name. I like this version. I am dedication this to John. And friends I hope you enjoy this song also.
Today I added another link… It’s a PDF called
The Meaning of the Intercessory Ministry of Jesus Christ on Our Behalf in the Heavenly Sanctuary.
Btw, the link’s are almost to the bottom of the categories on the right side. It’s actually called “Friends and Links”.
If you happen to know some great information that has been a blessing to you or, a book that you have enjoyed and it’s free to the public, please send me the link in a comment. Thank you.
