Michael W. Smith concert

This Sunday I'll be going to Michael W. Smith concert again. The last time I went to his concert was in the 90's @ the Knick Arena in Albany, NY. The only other arena concerts I been to was Steve Chapman and Jack Wagner. Oh and yes, I'll be doing my happy dance.  :0)

Update: The church was packed! The parking lot was two football field's wide and of course I was parked near the end in the grass. The church concerts are a lot better than the arena ones. You can actually see them and they can speak more freely. The other church one I went to was Robin Mark, a lot smaller but still awesome!

I will wait for you

You longed after me
for many seasons
You saw me
And I did not see you
You touched me
And I could not feel you
You came to me when I was very young and touched my heart
He took away my understanding 
For a time to come.
You took my hand, we danced
You filled my heart with your love,
We are one
He created you for me and I for you.
I will go where you go,
I will dance and sing the song of our love,
Now and forevermore, My Love
I will wait for you.

Dance With Me from Chris DuPre' on Myspace.

Let the Lion Roar!


It's about time! Church rise up now and graft yourselves to Israel, who's Maker of the Tree of Life is Yeshua HaMashiach! Isaiah 1:18 “Come now, and let us reason together,” Says the Lord, “Though your sins are like scarlet, They shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, They shall be as wool." Todah Abba!

"The Last Christian"

The last time I read a David Gregory book he was working on another. I had forgotten about that then and today I came across one of my pics I made (see  below) and found out its done. So right now I downloaded "The Last Christian" and will be reading it. So AWESOME!




"Quiet time"

A true believer will have praise and worship in their lives, its a given but how many have quiet time with Abba? It is important to have praise & worship to Him but also to just talk to Him, He is your Dad. Today is my dad's birthday, I would love to be able to just talk to him now. I can't wait till I get to see him again but Abba is with me always and I can talk with Him anytime and I don't just mean prayer. It is silly to think we can go about our day without talking to Abba and hearing His Spirit. Isn't that what Yeshua gave to us so we now can be intimate with Abba and seek His will? No one can teach you how to be in His presence, it is a "Heart skill" that means the only way you can be in His presence is thru the spirit and to do that comes from surrendering your will to His thru your heart. It has to come from you. And yes you will know the difference, you just won't sit there and think am I in the spirit now? you brain doesn't function in the spirit only your heart. The intimacy of the early church had gotten lost when people started seeking Abba thru other means, it will only work thru The Spirit. When I quiet down my nefesh and I focus on Abba, not myself, I'm in His presence.
Abba please open the hearts of your people, help them become intimate with you, to know their true dad.

"Deuteronomy"

(Update,  Ha Ha did it! sorry no pics yet was my first video. I'll fix later but audio is good it is a tape recording of the song from radio.)

      I'm back! My knees are a little worse for the wear but I still had lots of fun! Even when we played a game with only 12 players. 
     So right now, I'm still trying to find the song "Deuteronomy" augggh! On an old tape my mom has, the DJ says the name Mike Bezee. I don't even know if that is the correct spelling of his last name but I wrote down the lyrics. The song is set to a Beach boy's tune. The song is about the covenant Abba sets up with Abraham and completes it with Yeshua. In Genesis 9v28 it says Noah lived 350 years after the flood. It is sad that Abraham was around when Noah was still alive but didn't know Abba. How did Noah's descendants turn from Abba? In what generation was the nefesh so corrupted that they would turned away from Him? How is that possible? Where are the ones that believed? Abba doesn't tell us, He only points out that He chooses Abraham. He wanted to and did work thru Abraham, to love and bless him. 
     It doesn't matter who knows Abba and what they can do thru Him. We are all precious to Him and have a purpose. He has chosen us from the beginning. We need to seek Him with all of our heart, soul, and strength to do His will no matter who we are.
     "The Messiah redeemed us from the curse pronounced in the Torah by becoming cursed on our behalf; for the Tanakh says, “Everyone who hangs from a stake comes under a curse.” Yeshua the Messiah did this so that in union with Him the Gentiles might receive the blessing announced to Avraham, so that through trusting and being faithful, we might receive what was promised, namely, the Spirit." Galatians 3:13-14

Jeremiah 31:30-33 “Here, the days are coming,” says Adonai, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Isra’el and with the house of Y’hudah. It will not be like the covenant I made with their fathers on the day I took them by their hand and brought them out of the land of Egypt; because they, for their part, violated my covenant, even though I, for my part, was a husband to them,” says Adonai. “For this is the covenant I will make with the house of Isra’el after those days,” says Adonai: “I will put my Torah within them and write it on their hearts; I will be their God, and they will be my people. No longer will any of them teach his fellow community member or his brother, ‘Know Adonai’; for all will know me, from the least of them to the greatest; because I will forgive their wickednesses and remember their sins no more.”

Psalm 55:22 - Seeds Family Worship - "Cast Your Cares"

"That's not my problem"

     Way back in college, 20 years ago when I first started HVCC, one of my classes I took was called "principals and practices of light construction." We had learned how to build a house from start to finish. The first thing we did in the lab, was build a CMU wall four courses up. Each kid took a section of the wall and started to make it. I had the corner. I was carefully laying each block and leveling it. In the section next to me, the kid just slapped his together and left. My instructor came over and told me, it looks good then he pointed at the section next to mine and I shrugged my shoulders and said "that's not my section" his face got contorted with anger. He told me it doesn't matter who did it. I was responsible for the wall to be done correctly and should have helped him do his job and he stormed off. I angrily ripped out the CMU's that the kid erected and relayed them. I'm thinking why is he so mad. Who cares if that section of the wall is messed up. I found out later we needed that foundation to build the rest of the house. We ended up building a house inside the old HVCC gym.
      This reminds me of a story in the bible. In the book of Nehemiah, Nehemiah was grief stricken about Jerusalem being in ruins. He fasted and prayed to Abba to forgive their sins and to help bring back the people to their land. The king, who Nehemiah served, asked why he was upset. Nehemiah explained why and the king helped him. An answer to his prayers, Nehemiah and the remnant in Jerusalem each took the section of the wall and rebuilt it protecting Jerusalem once again.
     Abba has given us each a purpose. Each purpose represents His will for our lives. Abba created us to fulfill a purpose that He designed and to love Him. We need to make the bride of Christ strong, just like Nehemiah and the walls of Jerusalem. Nehemiah 1:10-11 "Now these are your servants, your people, whom you have redeemed by your great power and strong hand. Adonai, please, let your ear now be attentive to the prayer of your servant and to the prayer of your servants who take joy in fearing your name: please let your servant succeed today and win this man’s compassion.” We need to help others fulfill their purpose Abba has for them regardless if they are saved or not. In Mark 9:39-41 "Yeshua said, “Don’t stop him, because no one who works a miracle in my name will soon after be able to say something bad about me. For whoever is not against us is for us. Indeed, whoever gives you even a cup of water to drink because you come in the name of the Messiah — yes! I tell you that he will certainly not lose his reward." We need to see the bigger picture here, we need to have our part of the foundation strong and join with other foundations to make The bride of Christ. We can't be in our churches saying "that's not my problem". Churches need to come together as one. We need to ask Abba to forgive us for sinning against Him, keeping His bride apart and not helping the hurting world. Please Abba let your servants succeed today and open the hearts and minds of your servants to come together strong and heal the hurting world.

"Now is the time"


Now Is The Time
By Paul Wilbur

Lord if there was ever a time that you
were going to pour out your Spirit,
Now is the time

We know You're searching
Roaming the earth
Seeking a people who'll obey Your word
Oh count us among them now is the time
Make us the temples of Your holy fire

Our hearts are thirsty send forth a flood
This generation needs to know Your love
Boldly we cry out now is the time
Make us the temples of Your holy fire
Make us the temples of Your holy fire

Let You glory shine
Come consume our lives
Pour out Your Spirit
Fan every flame
Burn with a brightness that can't be contained
Fall on these altars now is the time
Make us the temples of Your holy fire
Make us the temples of Your holy fire

Wind of the Spirit blow
Make heaven's glory known
Come with compassion fill every soul
Wind of the Spirit blow
River of life run deep
Fountain of grace flow free
We are Your garden water Your seed
River of life run deep
River of life run deep

Our hearts are thirsty send forth a flood
This generation needs to know Your love
Boldly we cry out now is the time
Make us the temples of Your holy fire
Make us the temples of Your holy fire
Pour out Your Spirit
Fan every flame
Burn with a brightness that can't be contained
Fall on these altars now is the time
Make us the temples of Your holy fire
Make us the temples of Your holy fire
Make us the temples of Your holy fire

"We are the taxi cabs, Abba is the driver"

     It's a funny statement to say don't you think? Why call people taxicabs? Of course I'm speaking metaphorically but in many ways we are. We want Abba to guide us in all we do, then why don't we let him. There will never be a point in our lives where we can say to Abba, ok I'm good enough now, you can use me and take over this area of my life. From the very day we give our life over to Him, He should be the one driving. As we get more intimate with Him, His will is replacing our will to do His will.
     Back in 2007, Abba had me pray for someone to see their child in heaven. I was on the computer looking up a movie. Then all of a sudden I'm in the spirit and He flashes their life before me. I cried out and say "Lord if they only knew you." Then He told me to pray for them to see their child. This person was very depressed maybe even suicidal. The crazy thing is Abba let them see their child before I prayed for them and in 2006 they saw me and knew me before I had actually helped them and of course I was clueless to what Abba was doing. When I wrote “You know what we get to do today?” I wrote it talking about this person that Abba had me help but what also had happen, the story was helping someone else too, I had no idea. They thought I was talking about them. It helped them start doing Abba's will again for their life. Abba opened my eyes and showed me two years later what happened.
     We never know what Abba will use in our life to help someone. It is crazy to think that we have any foreknowledge or intuition to help people. It is all being carried out by Abba and not by us. When people thank me for helping them, I get very uncomfortable. I know it is all Abba and not me. Abba is the one who should be thanked not me. It is by His Spirit that things get done. He is always in control. If I were to grab a cab and ask the driver "I'm really late can you get me to this place in a half an hour?" And they say "Sure no problem I know a good short cut." I get there in 20 minutes and jump out of the cab, praising and thanking the car for getting me there so quick instead of thanking the driver. I would be considered crazy, but don't we do that today? Everything that happens in our life we should be praising Abba. Paul said this in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-19 "Always be joyful. Pray regularly. In everything give thanks, for this is what God wants from you who are united with the Messiah Yeshua. Don’t quench the Spirit"  We are just the taxi cabs being moved by His Spirit. When we go thru our day working, writing, speaking, preaching, etc.... It should be all done thru His Spirit. Being sensitive 24-7 to what Abba wants us to do because "We are the taxi cabs, Abba is the driver"


"The only thing that’s good in me"
Michael English

I heard someone say the other day
They’d seen in me true love displayed
Blessed by something I had done for them
No sooner did they speak those words
I found myself somehow disturbed
Uneasy as I took their compliment
‘Cause I know the heart inside this man
I know the truth of who I am

The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
I’ve lived long enough to know
No matter what this life may show
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus

If you could walk the hallways of my heart
And see things as they really are
I wonder if you might be surprised
Seeing faded walls of pride and fear
Rooms I’ve filled with faithless tears
And corners where I’ve stood in compromise
Oh, but you’d see the work His grace has done
You’d know just how far I’ve come

The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
I’ve lived long enough to know
No matter what this life may show
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus

And in a thousand years
When the dust of this world clears
And I look back on my life
And I'll see in perfect light

The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus

The only thing that’s good in me is You, Lord
The only thing that’s good in me is Jesus
I know only well enough to know
The only thing that’s good in me, yeah
The only thing that’s good in me

I know only well enough to know
No matter what this life may show
The only thing that’s good in me

"No turning back"

"No turning back"
By Lisa Bevill


The ground was dry and my hand was to the plow
The blood was rising and sun was beating down
I felt so hopeless and I was praying for the rain
Then He cooled me with His shadow, when He took the reigns
My hands grew stronger as they melted into His
We walked, He talked and told me this is how it is

No turning back, once you say yes
Cause I've written your name across My chest
Oh I can see the field of greens ahead
No turning back, no giving in
Got to put your face to the wind
Oh keep your eyes on me and hold on tight
No turning back

My soul was thirsty, so I drank His every word
He spoke of the harvest and His love for this dying world
He said "you must keep moving even when the rains come down.
For the time is coming when the lost will not be found."

No turning back, once you say yes
Cause I've written your name across My chest
Oh I can see the field of greens ahead
No turning back, no giving in
Got to put your face to the wind
Oh keep your eyes on me and don't lose sight
No turning back

No turning back, once you say yes
Cause I've written your name across My chest
Oh I can see the field of greens ahead
No turning back, no giving in
Got to put your face to the wind
Oh keep your eyes on me and don't lose sight
No turning back

No turning back, once you say yes
Cause I've written your name across My chest
Oh I can see the field of greens ahead
No turning back, no giving in
Got to put your face to the wind
Oh keep your eyes on me and don't lose sight, child
No turning back

Don't look back
The ground was dry but He was there, pushing
Don't turn back cus I'm here
Don't look back
Don't look back

"I will not shrink back!"

Hebrews 10:1-25 
"For the Torah has in it a shadow of the good things to come, but not the actual manifestation of the originals. Therefore, it can never, by means of the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, bring to the goal those who approach the Holy Place to offer them. Otherwise, wouldn’t the offering of those sacrifices have ceased? For if the people performing the service had been cleansed once and for all, they would no longer have sins on their conscience. No, it is quite the contrary — in these sacrifices is a reminder of sins, year after year. For it is impossible that the blood of bulls and goats should take away sins. This is why, on coming into the world, he says,“It has not been your willto have an animal sacrifice and a meal offering;rather, you have prepared for me a body. No, you have not been pleasedwith burnt offerings and sin offerings. Then I said, ‘Look!In the scroll of the bookit is written about me.I have come to do your will.’” In saying first, “You neither willed nor were pleased with animal sacrifices, meal offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings,” things which are offered in accordance with the Torah; and then, “Look, I have come to do your will”; he takes away the first system in order to set up the second. It is in connection with this will that we have been separated for God and made holy, once and for all, through the offering of Yeshua the Messiah’s body. Now every cohen stands every day doing his service, offering over and over the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But this one, after he had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, sat down at the right hand of God, from then on to wait until his enemies be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has brought to the goal for all time those who are being set apart for God and made holy. And the Ruach HaKodesh too bears witness to us; for after saying, “ ‘This is the covenant which I will makewith them after those days,’ says Adonai:‘I will put my Torah on their hearts,and write it on their minds . . . ,’ ” he then adds,“ ‘And their sins and their wickednessesI will remember no more.’ ” Now where there is forgiveness for these, an offering for sins is no longer needed. So, brothers, we have confidence to use the way into the Holiest Place opened by the blood of Yeshua. He inaugurated it for us as a new and living way through the parokhet, by means of his flesh. We also have a great cohen over God’s household. Therefore, let us approach the Holiest Place with a sincere heart, in the full assurance that comes from trusting — with our hearts sprinkled clean from a bad conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us continue holding fast to the hope we acknowledge, without wavering; for the One who made the promise is trustworthy. And let us keep paying attention to one another, in order to spur each other on to love and good deeds, not neglecting our own congregational meetings, as some have made a practice of doing, but, rather, encouraging each other.And let us do this all the more as you see the Day approaching. For if we deliberately continue to sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but only the terrifying prospect of Judgment, of raging fire that will consume the enemies. Someone who disregards the Torah of Moshe is put to death without mercy on the word of two or three witnesses. Think how much worse will be the punishment deserved by someone who has trampled underfoot the Son of God; who has treated as something common the blood of the covenant which made him holy; and who has insulted the Spirit, giver of God’s grace! For the One we know is the One who said,“Vengeance is my responsibility;I will repay,”and then said,“Adonai will judge his people.” It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God! But remember the earlier days, when, after you had received the light, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings. Sometimes you were publicly disgraced and persecuted, while at other times you stood loyally by those who were treated this way. For you shared the sufferings of those who had been put in prison. Also when your possessions were seized, you accepted it gladly; since you knew that what you possessed was better and would last forever. So don’t throw away that courage of yours, which carries with it such a great reward. For you need to hold out; so that, by having done what God wills, you may receive what he has promised. For“There is so, so little time!The One coming will indeed come,he will not delay. But the person who is righteouswill live his life by trusting,and if he shrinks back,I will not be pleased with him.”

"Plugging into unbelief"

The movie "Heaven is for real" has taken the box office by storm and set to make good earnings. I wonder if people will actually believe his story. I have read the book also. The movie was good but very basic, made for an unbeliever but also for believers who don't understand. Why do people have such a hard time believing? 
     I guess the way the early church was, to the way the church is now, true intimacy with the father is almost non existent. Yeshua taught intimacy to His disciples but somehow it never made it past the early believers. The Holy Spirit was quenched and man's rules on God took over. 
     We are given the Holy Spirt to continue the work of what Yeshua did. We are one with Him now. Abba expects us to do the same thing as Yeshua did on this earth and we see that in the letters in the gospel. We are to follow & obey the Holy Spirit. Each one of us has a responsibly to be intimate with Abba and hear His Spirit and not to quench Him. It can't be just taught, it is something we need to do. What has happened to our child like faith when we first believed? 
     When we believe in something we are putting our faith into it or you can even say trust. Because you will believe in what you trust. Faith is the action of our beliefs. Hebrews 11:1 "Trusting (faith) is being confident of what we hope for, convinced about things we do not see." CJB When I taught the 8 to 12 years old kids, I explained it this way. The outlet represents what you believe in "your belief" and the plug & cord is "your faith" you will always do what you believe or trust in because you are "plugging in" and giving power to your faith in what you believe but remember likewise we can do that with unbelief as well. If we plug our faith into our unbelief, we are getting power from that unbelief by putting trust into our unbelief. If we don't believe in what to hope for, then we are going to have no trust (faith).
     Yeshua explained this to me one day. I was praying a lot for someone to see their family member in Heaven. Abba had me pray for someone to see their daughter and they did. So I thought I could pray for someone to see his brother. Abba brought us up to heaven and they were walking away, looking around and just walked by their brother as if he didn't exist. I said to Yeshua "he's clueless isn't he?" Yeshua just gives me that "really, I'm trying to teach you something and you needed to say that" look. What Yeshua was trying to teach me was no matter how much we pray for them it won't work because of their unbelief. What I needed to change was what I prayed for. Now I pray for him to have understanding and let the Holy Spirit open his eyes. His deceased brother was very happy to see him. 
     So what we should do now is to stop plugging into the preconceived theologies of Abba that are steering us to what we believe and let the Holy Spirit direct us on what we need to know. Is anything to hard for the Lord? Remember pride will always quench the Holy Spirit. We need to seek Abba always with a humble heart. To know Him intimately. Romans 4:3 "For what does the Tanakh say? “Avraham put his trust in God, and it was credited to his account as righteousness.” Abba please open our hearts to you Spirit and guide our beliefs to the understanding of your word. Let us hear what the Spirit is saying.

Matthew 17:20 "And He said to them, “Because of the littleness of your faith; for truly I say to you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible to you."

CJB - Matthew 17:20  He said to them, “Because you have such little trust! Yes! I tell you that if you have trust as tiny as a mustard seed, you will be able to say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there!’ and it will move; indeed, nothing will be impossible for you!”

"I wanted you"

"I wanted you"
By Dennis Jernigan

Some lives begin by accident
so they say
so they say
and some lives were really never meant
so they say
so they say
but I say to you
there are no mistakes 
it's true
for I gave my life to prove
that I wanted you

I wanted you
from the beginning of time
I wanted you
and I want you to know how glad
I am that you're mine
you will be rejected 
some times in this life
but I chose you, selected you,
making you mine!

I wanted you 
so I made you and called you to
be mine
I wanted you
and I want you to know that you are
worth my own life
I wanted you...
and I still do

some lives are not worth living for
so they say
so they say
but the smallest of lives are worth
so much more
so I say
so I say!
and I say to you
put down the lies
believe what's true
what my heart already knew
that I wanted you

I wanted you
from the beginning
of time
I wanted you
and I want you to know how glad
I am that you're mine
you will be rejected 
some times in this life
but I chose you, selected you,
making you mine!

I wanted you 
so I made you and called you to
be mine
I wanted you
and I want you to know that you are
worth my own life
I wanted you...
and I still do

Daniel

Just watched this movie, pure awesomeness. Throughout this movie Abba was glorified!!! The way all movies should be! Todah Abba for the love you have given us and the strength to obey your word.



"The Lord is my strength"
By Dennis Jernigan

Remember Daniel in the lion's den, 
He was there for he would
not bow to men
There's no doubt or denyin'
God shut up the mouth of
the lion when He heard His
servant cry

The Lord is my strength
The Lord in His power
Is my strength
Day by day And every
hour
The Lord is my strength
The Lord in His power
Is my strength
Day by day and every
hour
Every day and every hour

Remember Paul and Silas in the jail,
They rejoiced for they knew God would not fail
Then along about midnight God delivered them by His great might,
When He heard His children cry

The Lord is my strength
The Lord in His power
Is my strength
Day by day And every
hour
The Lord is my strength
The Lord in His power
Is my strength
Day by day and every
hour
Every day and every hour

Remember we were all dead in our sins, 
My sins were buried when
Lord Jesus rose again

When satan comes like a flood
Cry out to Him who shed His own
blood
That we might reign with Him on
high

The Lord is my strength
The Lord in His power
Is my strength

Love and Trust

      The one thing that drives me nuts about myself is when the Holy Spirit tells me something and I will end up doing one of the following things. I will either dismiss it as not a valid answer or I will put my will above His and do it another way or I might actually listen and thank Abba for showing me what to do.
      I was talking to Abba about this and said "how I wish that every time you tell me to do something, I would just do it and not mess things up. This is what I worry most about following you that I will end up not doing your will and just mess things up causing me to not be useful and just create problems that you will end up fixing because of me." He spoke to me and said “If you love me you will trust and when you trust you will follow what I say. When you don’t trust, you won’t hear me because when you love me you’ll trust” I do love Abba but Abba isn’t talking to me about friendship love, He is talking to me about Agape love. The same love He gives to me. Also the same love and trust he wanted Peter to receive and give. In John 21:15-17 it says “After breakfast, Yeshua said to Shim‘on Kefa, “Shim‘on Bar-Yochanan, do you love me more than these?” He replied, “Yes, Lord, you know I’m your friend.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.”  A second time he said to him, “Shim‘on Bar-Yochanan, do you love me?” He replied, “Yes, Lord, you know I’m your friend.” He said to him, “Shepherd my sheep.” The third time he said to him, “Shim‘on Bar-Yochanan, are you my friend?” Shim‘on was hurt that he questioned him a third time: “Are you my friend?” So he replied, “Lord, you know everything! You know I’m your friend!” Yeshua said to him, “Feed my sheep!” Peter spoke of friendship love, Yeshua wanted unconditional love.  Yeahua call us lambs at first then He calls us sheep. Isaiah 40:11, "He is like a shepherd feeding His flock, gathering His lambs with His arm, carrying them against His chest, gently leading the mother sheep.”
      Romans 3:22-23, 27-31 "and it is a righteousness that comes from God, through the faithfulness of Yeshua the Messiah, to all who continue trusting. For it makes no difference whether one is a Jew or a Gentile, since all have sinned and come short of earning God’s praise. So what room is left for boasting? None at all! What kind of Torah excludes it? One that has to do with legalistic observance of rules? No, rather, a Torah that has to do with trusting. Therefore, we hold the view that a person comes to be considered righteous by God on the ground of trusting, which has nothing to do with legalistic observance of Torah commands. Or is God the God of the Jews only? Isn’t he also the God of the Gentiles? Yes, he is indeed the God of the Gentiles; because, as you will admit, God is one. Therefore, he will consider righteous the circumcised on the ground of trusting and the uncircumcised through that same trusting. Does it follow that we abolish Torah by this trusting? Heaven forbid! On the contrary, we confirm Torah."
       Abba cares for us and wants us to have unconditional love for Him. To trust Him that He is in control of our life no matter what circumstances are around us.

Open The Gates

Psalm 118:14-21 "The Lord is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation. The sound of joyful shouting and salvation is in the tents of the righteous;The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. The right hand of the Lord is exalted;The right hand of the Lord does valiantly. I will not die, but live, and tell of the works of the Lord. The Lord has disciplined me severely, but He has not given me over to death. Open to me the gates of righteousness; I shall enter through them, I shall give thanks to the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord; The righteous will enter through it. I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, and You have become my salvation. 

Isaiah 12:1-6 "And in that day you will say: “O Lord, I will praise You; Though You were angry with me, Your anger is turned away, and You comfort me. Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For Yah, the Lord, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.’” Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. And in that day you will say: “Praise the Lord, call upon His name; Declare His deeds among the peoples, Make mention that His name is exalted. Sing to the Lord, For He has done excellent things; This is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, O inhabitant of Zion, For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst!”

"The order of resurrection"

     When speaking about heaven, I noticed the church misunderstands the verse in Hebrews 9:27 thinking we'll die and stay in heaven forever but they need to read further. Hebrews 9:28 says "so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him."
Yeshua is coming back to rule in the millennium reign. People mix verses about the rapture and Yeshua's second coming together not understanding what Paul is speaking about. When he said "vs27 appointed for men to die once and after this comes judgment, vs28 appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him." He is talking about Yeshua reigning as king over us and at the end, put death under His feet. Throwing satan and those who followed his ways into the lake of fire forever.
     In 1 Corinthians 15:20-26 speaks of "the order of resurrection" and what will happen; "But now Christ has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who are asleep. For since by a man came death, by a man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, then comes the end, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power. For He must reign until He has put all His enemies under His feet. The last enemy that will be abolished is death."
     Right now Heaven is just one big giant Noah's Ark. It is the New Jerusalem that will come down from heaven and be on the new earth only after millennium reign & judgment seat. When Yeshua puts death under His feet and gives the kingdom back into Abba's hands.

1 Corinthians 15:28 "When all things are subjected to Him, then the Son Himself also will be subjected to the One who subjected all things to Him, so that God may be all in all."

Cast our crowns

Whew, I almost lost this one. I tried to find this song on the web for a long time. This one is not that old but like the others, I came up empty. Then when I moved to the new apt house, I went through an old container full of cassettes tapes my mom gave me and found the album it was on. Enjoy :0)

"Cast our crowns" Morgan Cryar 

Reading revelation by the light of the moon
Trying to figure out if we are leaving soon
Times are hard but there's work to do
This things bigger than me and you
Its one for all and all for one
We better get doing, if we're gonna get done

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

Trouble on the left and trouble on the right, yea
But there is a vision giving me hope tonight 
There's a great white throne and a glassy seat
A humble bend in every knee,
The saints all gathered one by one
A voice like thunder says were done

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

Lighting flashes from His eyes holy, holy
No more time for compromise holy, holy
Every knee will bow, every tongue confess 
Jesus is the Lord, the king of righteousness

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the one who is holy, holy, holy
And we'll cast our crowns at the feet of the Lamb who is worthy, He is worthy
And we'll kiss the ground with the angels singing holy, holy, holy

Through it all

2013 has been a very hard year. A lot of up's & downs, trials and loss. My life did a 180 during that year. It began with not being a firefighter anymore, the station closed. The doctor's billing office used the wrong code and BCBS is charging me when it was suppose to be a preventive code and no charge. They still do not have that resolved since last January's visit. Seed's has changed a lot and move out of the area. I had to put my cat Chance down, the tumor across his neck became so large it was making him choke while he ate. The doctor wouldn't remove it because of the jugular. I also had to move to a different apartment. The landlord needed to renovate the old apartment. I had to be out by end of November and I now pay 300.00 more for the new place. Yips! Hopefully soon I'll own my own house. Can't play football anymore as well. So last year, there was a lot of pain but I know Abba is with me through it all and whatever reason it is this way, it is His alone. I must be moved by Him only and be ready to do His will in whatever circumstance i'm in. His will not mine; His Spirit guiding me through it all.
