Examine me, O Lord, this day and forever more

Examine me, O Lord, and prove me; try my reins and my heart.

This is what America needs to come to grips with… yet again, especially in light of all we saw coming by way of Parkland, Florida.

Confusion only becomes apparent when our young act like they have been taught: they are nothing but a cosmic accident, there is no purpose for them to live for or to have hope in and from, or that humans came from apes. In Florida there is a resurgence to (hopefully gain strength) reflect some hope, a revival if you will, one to observe a truth reflected in this country’s heritage,”In God we trust.” As those that are a part of the “Americans United for Separation of Church and State” movement, I’d say they really do not know their own history well enough to support their claims. See what I mean here.

[Below was fashioned from Matthew Henry’s Commentary (for Matthew 24), and is a compilation of abstracts to this end.]

Our Savior cautions his disciples to stand on their guard against false teachers. And he foretells wars and great commotions among nations. From the time that the Jews rejected Christ, and he left their house desolate, the sword never departed from them. See what comes of refusing the gospel. Those who will not hear the messengers of peace, shall be made to hear the messengers of war. But where the heart is fixed, trusting in God, it is kept in peace, and is not afraid. The evil day is not the further off for men’s putting it far from them. Our Lord’s coming will be happy to those that shall be found ready, but very dreadful to those that are not. When we looked forward to the eternity of misery that is before the obstinate refusers of Christ and his gospel, we may truly say,”The greatest earthly judgments are but the beginning of sorrows.” It is comforting that some shall endure even to the end.

Revelation 1:18 KJV
18 I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.

To disbelieve this is truth is to doubt God’s word or works (even those done on our behalf)… and to believe the word of God comes from God is what we call faith. So… do you have faith– for even this comes from God Himself?

Never forget… and denial doesn’t change it!


, ,

Yom HaShoah… this is NOT to deny it happened or to act against God’s people! This is the very reason Israel reacts to violence as it does… with patience (at times) and swiftly with others. Do you blame them… still? A time we should (all) remember.

How about altering what people can think or say about it… as in Poland today,  and what they did. Really?

Here is an older post, one quite relevant to topic!


Can we afford to turn our head and look away… and still call ourselves human?

‘What are you doing about what has been done?’




Have you complaint over what you’d
look at and find when you see…
as if any country could be restored
by man, not God, once gone- futility?
This to cry foul if a land is taken away,
removed by God’s own hand as a pawn
He might play in the field of our lives…
wrong or right is not found in the dawn
or on the grass we feel with our feet,
this is God’s own, as its Maker, to do
with as He wishes… ‘the way’ to God
is told in the Gospel, also is the who
God has granted all authority, by proxy,
to His Son… bled at the cross for all
those believers in His resurrection…
don’t you hear knocking, take it a call!











Should man say God has stolen from him anything? I think not! It makes the claim, by some, Israel stands on stolen ground ridiculous. To even think there is an iota of truth to this is to oppose God- be disobedient to what He has done on our behalf. The land of Canaan was given by God to the people He selected… He chose to do this, and for any man to state differently than this is either lying or suffers under grand delusions- self imposed and self inflicted. Think about it, who are we to question the motives of God or to think they might do better than the designs and handiwork seen all about us in the natural world we live in?


The Call of Abram
Genesis 12:1-3 1 The LORD had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you. 2 “I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing. 3 I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.”


Job 9:12 & 13 12 If he snatches away, who can stop him? Who can say to him, ‘What are you doing?’ 13 God does not restrain his anger; even the cohorts of Rahab cowered at his feet.

You can read the effects of Job 1:15 from here, a different perspective indeed.

‘A curse to those whom add… forbidden!’



To stand and but reach out to
the moon… a pantomime to life
giving light, a reflection, this is
to turn our back on where is life
found and what sustains it or to
be ostracized at the duration, life’s
completion, thinking naively to be:
in the know, right in an assumption,
even more clever than people God
has chosen over all others… fixed
in mind as a star in the sky but it
says in the scripture… the word is
God breathed and not inspired by
the created ones, angelic or human,
and to deny God His authority over
man is to make mankind into God
or godlike to become, so conditional
to this belief is to feel threatened if
it’s challenged, to demand penalty of
such questioning… to exactly respond
with angered pride, vengeance to be
forced, contrived or conveyed as right…
the human ending to be justified and
sought as no light is seen or if even
the moon would suddenly reach back…
with a hand to still life and steal hope.


Ecclesiastes 12:12 (NIV) Be warned, my son, of anything in addition to them. Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body.

Deuteronomy 4:2 Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the LORD your God that I give you.


[The words below come from here, Matthew Henry Commentary on the Whole Bible (Complete)]

That which is written, and thus recommended to us, is of divine origin. Though it comes to us through various hands (many wise men, and many masters of assemblies ), yet it is given by one and the same shepherd, the great shepherd of Israel, that leads Joseph like a flock, Ps. 80:1 . God is that one Shepherd, whose good Spirit indwells the scriptures, and assists the masters of the assemblies in opening and applying the scriptures. These words of the wise are the true sayings of God, on which we may rest our souls. From that one Shepherd all ministers must receive what they deliver, and speak according to the light of the written word.The sacred inspired writings, if we will but make use of them, are sufficient to guide us in the way of true happiness, and we need not, in the pursuit of that, to fatigue ourselves with the search of other writings (v. 12). If the end be not attained in the use of those books of scripture which God has blessed us with, neither should we obtain the end, if we had twice as many more; nay, if we had so many that the whole world could not contain them (Jn. 21:25), and much study of them would but confound us, and would rather be a weariness to the flesh than any advantage to the soul. We have as much as God saw fit to give us, saw fit for us, and saw us fit for. Much less can it be expected that those who will not by these be admonished should be wrought upon by other writings. Let men write ever so many books for the conduct of human life, write till they have tired themselves with much study, they cannot give better instructions than those we have from the word of God.


Colossians 3:5-10 5 Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these, the wrath of God is coming. 7 You used to walk in these ways, in the life you once lived. 8 But now you must also rid yourselves of all such things as these: anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language from your lips. 9 Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices 10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.


[The King James Version, for the sixth verse above, is found below.]

6 For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:


Job 35:10 But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;

Where is God my Makers? For God said, Let us make man, us, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Psalm 119:31 I hold fast to your statutes, LORD; do not let me be put to shame.

Psalm 119:39 Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.



[Found below comes from here in abstract, on Psalm 119.]

When men rail at God’s government of the world it is our duty and privilege to stand up for him, and openly to declare before him, “thy judgments are good”; and we should do the same when they assail the Bible, the gospel, the law, or the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. But we must take heed that they can bring no truthful accusation against us, or our testimony will be so much wasted breath.


[Below, an abstract from here, on Deut 4.]

in the latter days, if thou turn to the Lord thy God–either towards the destined close of their captivities, when they evinced a returning spirit of repentance and faith, or in the age of Messiah, which is commonly called “the latter days,” and when the scattered tribes of Israel shall be converted to the Gospel of Christ. The occurrence of this auspicious event will be the most illustrious proof of the truth of the promise made in Deuteronomy 4:31.

‘Can the language of liberty mask a materialist’s veto of freedom?


, ,


Materialism: an ascribed tendency to consider material possessions and physical comforts more important than spiritual values.

[As to philosophy, it is found a doctrine to maintain consciousness and will are wholly due to material agency.]


Into the hands of what… where no value is given to human life at all.



If there was ever a more sure enemy we have faced, in history or today, it would be clearly observed in any individual maintaining the idea,”There are no sins… and since there are no sins there is no reason to be forgiven!” This flies in the face of anyone believing in Jesus Christ, or Christianity, for the Bible teaches us a concept of sin, mankind being born into it, which stands in opposition to this assumption. So what I’d ask you (this enemy) is this,”Is he really the enemy of the human race — because he is so human?” I’d say ‘YES’ to this very question!

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;

As if it could be disputably proven, mankind has no free will, then to strive to prove the point renders it being pointless to the argument… likewise immaterial to the outcome. Does this sound like a settled mind, one confirming nothing but the assumption it concludes to be correct, or one learning to assign what one has chosen against another: idea, concept, fact or opinion. It all sounds so aleatoric (so unscientific, being left to random chance over sound reason) to presume such an endeavor but some philosophers have argued against it. Anthony Collins (1676-1729) is one arguing against free will, or to Louis Althusser (1918-1990)… one more in line with communist thoughts by Marx… and argued, in a letter to his mentor Jean Lacroix, one of the only ways to realizing Christian values is through communist action … and one James Ward (1843-1925) to argue in behalf of ‘free will’ being an absolute. It should be noted all three points of view come under the same umbrella of thought and on ‘Materialism’ being the prevailing topic. You can read from the varied thoughts of man above, right or wrong is a conclusion you must come to on your own, and this exemplifies free will- doesn’t it?



It is when God uses ‘free will’ to determine where we will be found, with Him or without Him, and know there is no in between! It is a tool by God to show what is inside our heart… where there is found the measure of an individual’s worth. Is it belonging to the spiritual side of life or (just) the mortal/temporal side and believes in satisfying the passions of the flesh over the will of God?

[The abstract below is found here, on ‘Will’ and of its implication to mankind.]

It is remarkable that love for God has been commanded (Deut 6:5). True love cannot be coerced. The obvious implication for this central response to Israel’s fundamental statement of God’s unique nature is the requirement of loyalty based on the ability to choose.

When we look at the life of Job, by example, and still think to shake our fist at God directly… look here to find how absurd and ludicrous this action becomes!

Joshua 1:10-11 10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the LORD your God giveth you to possess it.

Thoughts from a Canaanite woman
Rahab knew and understood who the God of the Hebrews wasthe will of God for her was to: help His people, see to her own safety and that of her family was addressed and know/trust God would grant her grace/salvation/deliverance from God’s wrath.

This brings us to today, present time, and what is being done… see through the prisms provided by the media- still in light of God’s will for us or to be seen against God, His people… Israel, or without love for any but your own!



This is why God turned against the Israelites, disobedience! If God would do this to His own, for doing wrong, how much different will it be to those in opposition to Him and His will for mankind?

Who then is closer to the will of God, Haley or Abbas?




Pride will be the downfall




There is a prevailing thought among many these days, especially atheists… of a newer breed of such individuals, and it is a false pride complete with the bravado unknown before. It is the same bravado that begged to be different in the surety of their own vanity- not so different from the fallen ones and those they followed originally. Pride is indeed its undoing… its choice… its lament will be felt forever- not in the satisfaction and mistake of seeking pleasure for themselves or the expensive cost but to live for eternity without one iota of pleasure to be felt again. To even speak of it so is a concept atheists resist and deplore but the truth of it being a reality gets in the way of everyone set in mind not to be deprived today. Living in the now without God is to beg for our choice to be made permanent- secure and fixed forever. Why did Jesus have to die if there is only the pursuit of pleasure to be gained from this life? Jesus gave His life as a sacrifice to make the way clear to God for all humanity… the removal of sin for the penitent, asking for His forgiveness, to change their mind of doing what was important to them (to repent) and to set about the will of God in their lives. If hell was not a real place then deliverance comes into question but, rest assured, deliverance is why Jesus came to earth- to save as many as He could. Are you ‘one’ he is still looking for?

Jesus did this because He knew hell is for real and to take the sins of all mankind upon Himself was to become what God abhorred- sin itself. This was told us in the Messianic verses of the Bible, speaking of the Messiah to come… the suffering Messiah would endure such pain for the love He had for us (before we knew Him), the truth of why He came in the human form as He did. To make a proclamation so brash, to think so little of the life saving blood of Jesus covering our sins, as to say,”We do not need God,” is further proof of just how wrong we are and how forsaken we have become ourselves. Jesus felt great loss being separated from God the Father at the cross, telling us there is a great consequence to desire ‘to do it our own way’ and without God involved.

[The Messianic prophecy of the Messiah to suffer so… for you and I and if we but believe in Him, repent… and turn toward Him and not away from Him.]

The prophecy in the Bible is true or it would not be provable and provably found in such cohesion (both the same in Old Testament as well as the New Testament) and clearly stated.

Psalm 22:1 My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me? why art thou so far from helping me, and from the words of my roaring?

Mark 15:34 KJV
34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying,Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani? which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?

Psalm 22:18 They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

Luke 23:34 KJV
34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Please keep in mind the time frame of when the former was written. The Old Testament, being attributed to David, King of Israel… after Saul, and most of the Psalms, were penned at least one thousand years before Jesus Christ walked the earth. This can only mean one thing, and let me be perfectly clear in stating this, to be found 100% accurate is to realize God has a hand in the affairs of man and will be equally accurate in the prophecy pointing to the end of human history. This leaves humanity two choices, to turn away from life without God (which leads to death) or to seek God and claim life is important enough to appreciate it (eternal life actually begins here) and realize what love God has for those in His service.


Psalm 22:23 Ye that fear the LORD, praise him; all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him; and fear him, all ye the seed of Israel.


Psalm 22:30 A seed shall serve him; it shall be accounted to the Lord for a generation.

Yes, there can be many people found stemming from the seed of Abraham (like the sands on the beach) but only one held the key to be used as the conduit for the lineage (to fulfill prophecy and complete God’s plans) and life of Jesus Christ… the Messiah of Israel and all humanity. Know the difference between what God offers you is a choice, one He allows you to make on your own (not coerced/threatened but made willingly) or it comes not from God. God will always honor your choice, no matter if it is for love or not- and he will make sure the choice you make will bring long lasting effects… forever! Will you choose love or hate? It is my prayer you choose love, you will won’t you?



Just how much time we have left to make this choice is not ours to know!

If we can tell Monet from Picasso… then God to man is possible! Part 2

There are a couple things, being quite relevant to topic, that need to be addressed before proceeding. One of those issues is the secular view of the Bible being a: myth, fairytale or just legend. Let’s proceed to this and think it through to fruition, shall we? Which of the two statements (sentences) below are true?


There is much man assumes about God… but to think it is not us that will have to answer for our actions is the greatest error we could possibly make!


[Both of the abstracts below come from this,”The Ethics of Elfland.”]

I have never been able to understand where people got the idea that democracy was in some way opposed to tradition. It is obvious that tradition is only democracy extended through time.

Nay, the ordinary scientific man is strictly a sentimentalist. He is a sentimentalist in this essential sense, that he is soaked and swept away by mere associations. He has so often seen birds fly and lay eggs that he feels as if there must be some dreamy, tender connection between the two ideas, whereas there is none.











In reality, both of the statements are true, although most people (I’d assume) would loudly proclaim the former and not the latter to be true. Click on the link above to read the full article and then made a determination again… as this is (correctly) a challenge to stretch the horizons of what one might call perception! Once the question to how we might see things is cleared up we can proceed to ‘what’ we are looking at and ‘why’ it matters.

The other issue comes to what is considered science, or scientific in nature,… as it is the next challenge to how we might perceive something to be, either for or against, and it is found evaluating evidence. There are some very high profile scientists that are agnostic/atheists and have attempted to share their opinions (as fact… and unscientific) to support and sway others. Case in point, Bill Nye is but one such individual… where (today) scientific stoicism collides with new information. Bill would argue against creation citing the age of rocks, geology, as but one basis to draw a conclusion from. Let’s see what has come to light in this field and why a potential change is relevant!

We decide age of anything (for most scientific purposes) from radioisotope dating or through a mass spectrometer. One article challenges the secular view of accuracy claimed, using radioisotope dating, and wait… there are also other claims to bring questions more than answers. There is also Professor Timothy H. Heaton that challenges the method and means of measurement to radioisotope dating found here.

There is also the Law of Entropy, which goes against an expanding (stretching) universe in reality. From a book by John Sanford, entitled,”Genetic Entropy & the Mystery of the Genome,” is found by abstract this statement…


Sanford also explains that DNA is deteriorating so rapidly that it would have been flawless just a few thousand years ago.  So Darwin’s idea that life forms become more complicated over time is exactly the opposite of what modern science observes.  Dr Vern Bissell of Portland State U says that if the RATE findings (see below) are a nail in the coffin of evolution, Stanford’s book is a railroad spike.


and if Darwin could be wrong, something evolutionists rely on, then to question what we have been told and taught turns it on its very axis away from scientific results- being left unproven or an unprovable theory! There is then, as they might say in a court of law, questionable doubt.


I look at it this way… we don’t just find a Ferrari in the driveway, it had to be designed and created by someone, right?

There exists one disturbing difference (among many) between Islam and Christian thought. The difference on whether or not God can be known, personally, and perceived (recognized, identified, detected… even to be regarded) to allow ‘a grasp’ of the scope God grants us by living.

Surety of salvation comes by deliverance!

[This is dedicated to Phyllis Ames-Bey– one I proudly call Sister in the body of Christ.]


Is there nothing more to faith than to believing what is in the Bible? Of course there is and what we seek out (or should seek out) is of God (to know the mind of God), and how He would have us to understand what He has told us. Now that Christmas Day is past and a new year has rushed in (2018)… a good time to think about what we say we know or believe and contrast it with what God says. If you find God’s standard is perfection… knowing we can never meet that standard is to realize what is implied by being ransomed from our failings. Since all of us have failed (born into sin itself) and we are to believe in redemption, by the substitution of Jesus Christ dying on the cross for us-individually and personally. This is where acceptance of Jesus, understanding the actions He took (on our behalf), and being shown, by resurrection from the dead, what real hope is and why. This is, for all intensive purposes, how God abrogated His own legal requirements of man, for man to obtain salvation, and sought the fulfillment of this requirement (met our need) found in Jesus. The why is answered in finding out there is more to life than (just) this one… but people choose to deny this as possible or probable. Even with eye witness accounts: the disciples (the Gospels), a Roman Jew named Josephus (a historian), or a Centurion named Gaianus (the person in charge of the Sixth Legion Ferrata, Roman special forces).


1 Thessalonians 5:9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.


[This below is from here and on 1 Thessalonians 5:9]

We need the spiritual armour, or the three Christian graces, faith, love, and hope. Faith; if we believe that the eye of God is always upon us, that there is another world to prepare for, we shall see reason to watch and be sober. True and fervent love to God, and the things of God, will keep us watchful and sober. If we have hope of salvation, let us take heed of any thing that would shake our trust in the Lord. We have ground on which to build unshaken hope, when we consider, that salvation is by our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, to atone for our sins and to ransom our souls. We should join in prayer and praise one with another. We should set a good example one before another, and this is the best means to answer the end of society. Thus we shall learn how to live to Him, with whom we hope to live for ever.


The armor of God will protect you- trust God… as God is true!


Romans 5:9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!


[Below in abstract from here and on Romans 5:9]

Christ died to save us, not in our sins, but from our sins; and we were yet sinners when he died for us. But God designed to deliver from sin, and to work a great change. While the sinful state continues, God loathes the sinner, and the sinner loathes God (Zechariah 11:8). And that for such as these Christ should die, is a mystery; no other such an instance of love is known, so that it may well be the employment of eternity to adore and wonder at it. The living Lord of all, will complete the purpose of his dying love, by saving all true believers to the uttermost. The evil, from which the deliverance could be effected only in this astonishing manner, must be more dreadful than natural death. Having such a pledge of salvation in the love of God through Christ, the apostle declared that believers not only rejoiced in the hope of heaven, and even in their tribulations for Christ’s sake, but they gloried in God also, as their unchangeable Friend and all-sufficient Portion, through Christ only.


Do you need a different way of looking at this, six blind men each had a differing perception of what an elephant was like, then take from the articles listed and glean them of their contents, for the goal is to strive for spiritual growth in the body of Christ. The word(s) of God are flawless and without blemish.
