“Come, my child, come.”

Abba has wanted me to write this for a very long time. I have been putting this one off for a while because I know people are going to be angry, discount me or even curse at me for this one. About ten years ago on a Saturday morning in my bedroom, I was preparing a lesson for the next day. I taught the 8yr – 12yr kids at the church me and my brother attended at that time. As I was sitting there, I was caught up into the spirit to a place I do not know. From above inside I saw it was a warehouse packed with people in a radial symmetrical group. Rows and rows of people just walking towards a small hole in the center and just falling in. Then I became one of them walking towards that hole. I could see the hole but I didn’t care if I fell in. Then I heard a voice in a distance behind me saying “Come, my child, come.” I turned for a moment but then I still was walking towards the hole. The voice got louder and stronger “Come, my child, come.” I turned around and started walking toward the voice. It was easy at first but as I started getting to the middle part of the group they started to grab me knocking me down trying to turn me around forcing me to walk their way, I started to give in and then I heard again “Come, my child, come.” I force my way thru and was getting toward the outer edge of the people. They tried to hold me but they seemed to be getting weaker as I was reaching to the outer edge of the group. I leaped out and saw who was calling me. There was a person in a white robe sitting on a large white marble throne. From the chest up there was a cloud. I focused on his right hand. It was a human adult hand. I could sense someone to my left I turned my head and saw Yeshua. I ran to him. He grabbed me and hugged me. As I was in his arms, I looked to my left and saw the outer edge of the group. Their backs were facing me. They were so close, I reach to touch one but couldn't. I asked Yeshua “Do they not hear you?” He says “They hear me, but do not listen.” I was then back sitting on my bed. I sat there amazed and stunned. I was grateful to be saved. Now there are many ways to explain what each area meant but I going to let Abba tell you this one. He wants to rescue you. He is tugging at your heart to seek him, to become intimate “Come, my child, come.”

"What a mess!"

These pics are from my grape vine I planted 12yrs ago. (click on pic to see better) The vine was a little over a foot tall and I used a tomato cage for support. I wanted it to grow a little first before I start to prune it and tie it to a wire fence. As you can see I haven't touched it in about 10 years. The Blackberry vine bushes are now mixed in with the grape vines. Ouch! Serves me right for letting it grow that wild. In the next couple of weeks, I will try to cut back the berry vines and in Feb I'll be able to start pruning the vine. Having a grape vine requires a lot of attention. Just in the first year of its growth, the vine requires constant watering for root development. Also the vine in the next 3 years also requires to be shaped, pruned, & molded on the wire fence to continue to grow in that direction. In John ch 15, I understand more now what Yeshua is saying "I am the true vine, and My Father is the vine dresser" Abba cares for us. Just like a vine we require a lot of attention too. If we let Abba shape, prune, & mold us, we will bear much fruit for Him. He wants to see His vine branches grow and takes delight in us when we do.

"The Ultimate Gift"



I finally got to watch this movie. It has been in my Netflix que for over 6 months. 11bucks a month for unlimited Netflix is worth it. This movie cannot be missed it is 2 hours long but well worth the time.

"He Will Carry You"

Last night at Seed's bible study, Rabbi Steve had us break into groups and pray for each other. Milli and Nick were with me. Milli had some of these words in her head "If He carried the weight of the world, He will carry me" for a week and I told her it was a song. I also told her I would get it for her. This 80yr old prayer warrior started to praise and thanked Yeshua. That's cool. Abba put us together just so she could know what it was and I bet he is going to have her bless me somehow too. Rabbi Steve was teaching about the love factor in faith. 1 Corinthians 13:13 "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. Something has been going thru my head also. Some people say they love Yeshua but then they have this book of stamps against Abba. He never answered my prayer, He didn't save this person and they died, or I trusted him but I got hurt. People act as if Abba has sinned against them. Abba has never SINNED! Only we have. Holding this unforgiveness against Abba will only separate you from him. Abba is in control, not by our standards but his. If we trust Abba to take real control over our life we need to have real faith (a love for him) that "he will carry you."



"He Will Carry You"

There is no problem too big
God cannot solve it
There is no mountain too tall
He cannot move it
There is no storm too dark
God cannot calm it
There is no sorrow too deep
He cannot soothe it

If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders
I know, my brother that He will carry you
If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders
I know, my sister that He will carry you

He said come on to me all who are weary
And I will give you rest

There is no problem too big
God cannot solve it
There is no mountain too tall
He cannot move it
There is no storm too dark
God cannot calm it
There is no sorrow too deep
He cannot soothe it

If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders
I know, my brother that He will carry you
If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders
I know, my sister that He will carry you

If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders
I know, my brother that He will carry you
If He carried the weight of the world upon His shoulders
I know, my sister that He will carry you

He will carry you, He will carry you

“Wii - like to play”

When I was 13, my parents bought a Nintendo game system for the family @ Christmas. My baby brother Steve was 7 and would severely kick every one’s butt. The only game I would even have a chance was Super Mario Bros. The only bad thing about the game was the person had to die before the next person could play. Steve and I would play for points and boards - no warps. This is normal unless you had a brother like Steve. He was so proficient at the game he would never die until he reached level 8 (two hours later) and to make matters worse he always could finish the section in under 100 seconds. So he usually had at least 200 seconds left and would go thru the boards breaking every brick he could find for points. It would take so long for my turn that I had to start a new rule “No unnecessary brick breaking”It was always a uphill battle. The playing field was never even until Nintendo made the Wii. I can definitely say this, Nintendo finally reprieve all the siblings that would get creamed by their brothers & sisters. Playing the Wii doesn’t require “fastest thumbs in the west” anymore but forces the person to engage in battle allowing the person to do the fighting rather than the computer controlling us. The person is now the controller. It balances the playing field. When we accept Yeshua, satan has no more control over us. Abba is in control of our life now. We have a free will to choose, grow, learn. “Wii - like to play”


1 Wii console = $ 250.00
1 Wii Controller w/ nunchuk = $ 40.00
1 Wii Fit w/ Balance Board = $ 80.00
Finally being able to beat your smarty pants baby brother @ Nintendo…Priceless

"A MIGHTY WORSHIPPER"



Friday at church they played “Great is the lord almighty” during worship. I loved this song and finally looked it up. Dennis Jernigan is the writer and singer. I down loaded 4 of his albums. My favorite so far is “Giant Killer: A Heart Like David” Here is one of the songs from it. The way he sings reminds me of another album I listen to a lot, “Spirit over New Mexico” by Calvary ABQ worship team. They all sound like the Maranatha Singers. I wish they would play some of these worship songs again up here in New York on the radio. You don’t hear songs like this anymore. Shalom :O)
