The following is an excerpt from chapter five of my book:
Our holy God’s son is God’s Word in the flesh. Jesus came to us to demonstrate God’s Word through His love for us. His was baptized around the age of thirty, and His ministry lasted approximately three years. In that short span of time, Jesus selected a devoted group of twelve disciples. They gave up all they had, in order to follow and learn from Him. Continue reading
What a mighty God we serve! He created us, loves us, and desires a continual relationship with us. God is all things to each of us, although we each view and accept Him differently because He created each of us to be different beings.
Our Almighty God is never different from anything He has ever said or done, as the Bible steadfastly proclaims God is: Continue reading
Offering Thanks Works!
Today, not far from the town of Bethsaida in Israel, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, gathered together in a grassy area, the Nazarene Man filled the stomachs of 5,000 men (total does not reflect women and children in attendance). The wondrous deed was not done through the typical process of planning and preparation of food, but was accomplished on-the-spot by His looking into the heavens and giving thanks!
The Holy Body Of Jesus Shed Blood For Us 7 Times.
Each of the 7 times Jesus shed His blood for mankind, a freedom was returned to us. Read how Jesus’ blood redeems you and sets you free from bondage.
Leviticus 16:19 He shall sprinkle some of the blood on it with his finger seven times to cleanse it and to consecrate it from the uncleanness of the Israelites. Continue reading
Election Day is November 8.
Are we ready to win back America? I know we have been in election battle mode for over a year now. Evil has viciously been pitting candidate against candidate, family against family, and friend against friend.
These past months have been tiresome as Christians maneuver to avoid the slings and arrows of satan’s struggle for power. But Christians, we are not called to maneuver, or to navigate or to retreat when it comes to confronting evil. We are called to do just the opposite. Continue reading
In honor of the 60th Anniversary of In God We Trust, 1956-2016. Because we are one nation under God, here is a repost of the history of our beloved motto.
Belief in God is in our national history.
President Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time” and asked “Can the liberties of a nation be secure when we have removed a conviction that these liberties are of God?”
The need for our country to continually acknowledge these liberties from God, is established in our national motto.
“In God We Trust” – four words establishing our nation’s motto. History reveals it was: Continue reading
Since the formation of America God has always gone before us, stood beside us and protected our back. Sadly, just like nations of old in the Bible, America often gets prideful and offers God the cold shoulder. We stop turning to Him, thinking we know better than He does in regards to living.
But a short tally of our “living” seems to indicate an immediate need to call on Him by name: Continue reading
I’ll shout it from the rooftops – “God is zeroth to me!”
If I called my best friend zeroth she might think it was an insult – demeaning and abusive language (she would actually think I was being silly and making up a word but go with me on this). The point is most people do not know what zeroth means. I had never heard of the word until last week when I was googling more attribute words for God that start with the letter Z. Continue reading
Just like you desire respect from others for the lifetime of positive actions or achievements you make, God desires respect because of all that He is. With NFL players making choices to not stand for our national anthem, their negative actions may not bring them the respect they yearn for, due to their lack of understanding the significance of their action.
However, God’s being far outreaches the capability of our mental capacity for understanding, whether we are an NFL player or one of the five smartest people in history (Albert Einstein, Leonardo da Vinci, Terence Tao, Stephen Hawking, Nikola Tesla). Perceptive brains (nor inanimate footballs) make the man – God does! Continue reading
Dear World, Please Stop Vomiting Up His Name
(Part 3 of 3)
Our world countries just completed the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. Their camaraderie inspired me to reach out to Lift Him Up readers (representing over 100 countries) and ask them to share the eternal importance of never momentarily taking our Lord’s name in vain.
This is the last of a three part series designed to bring global attention to the constant misuse of the holy names God and Jesus. Part 1 considered the history of God’s name. Part 2 focused on correct and incorrect uses of God’s name. In Part 3 we look at why we should follow God’s third commandment. Continue reading
