Is It All About You?




Have you ever started a conversation with someone that didn’t circle around I, I, I, Me, Me, Me? Or maybe you’ve heard someone try to outdo the other with all their ailments, operations, or what they drive, live in, or how much they did for someone else? Our lives have turned into a look at me society, the exact opposite of what God wants us to be doing.

Just listen sometime to conversations going on around you. One person will be saying; I’m so busy blah, blah, blah… I did this… I’ve had this pain… I didn’t have time to call because I’m so blah, blah… I, I, I.

Scriptures tell us to spread the Gospel, Mark 16:15 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. Nowhere does it say to whine, brag or glorify yourself. As a matter of fact, it says just the opposite. We as a nation have become very arrogant and self-centered, this passage God has given us is perhaps one the most important ones for this time in all our lives, it’s 2 Chronicles 7:14 14 and if My people who are called by My name HUMBLE themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

Of course, that’s pretty hard to accomplish when so many have fallen away from God and the church, or have never believed in Him in the first place, thanks to our re-education, indoctrination school system. Don’t get me started on, we won’t go there right now … just ask a millennium what they believe in, and you’ll see what I mean. They believe they are entitled to everything for free. let’s just live together, marriage is too big of a commitment. So what if we have a child … 

Some Christians, not all, believe we are in the end times, first of all, let me say this. NO one knows… Of course, we see signs, like drug abuse out of control… wait! on the 17th of January 1920 didn’t we have prohibition, alcohol abuse? Oh, don’t forget the stock market crash of “29”. Then let’s go back in time to wars and rumors of wars. Let’s just start with the civil war, world war 1, world war 2, how about Korea, Viet Nam, the Middle East, and now Ukraine… Ah ha, Wars and rumors of wars. Droughts, famines, and plagues (covid) aren’t new and just the things that are happening in our time,  What about polio, and the plague of 1916?

How about aids? No vaccine for that yet, millions have died from it, no masks, no Quarantine. WOW! what’s with that? All the catastrophes in the scriptures have happened time and time again throughout history, pay attention to what your bible actually says about end times and the Lord’s return. Believe what the bible says, not what someone wants you to believe … you know who I’m talking about.

Those are just a few of the things used as benchmarks that some preachers use to preach an end-times message and have been doing so since before the civil war… Don’t believe me? Look up some of the classic sermons of each of those eras. Like death, (we start dying at birth) the end times have been going on since the beginning of time. I can remember my Grandma telling me the end time was on us, Jesus was going to return soon.  Matthew 24:44For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.  In reality every day we live we are a day closer to Jesus…

Fear tactics! and I don’t mean the kind of fear that God wants you to have of Him in the scriptures.  Scriptures tell us fear is the opposite of faith, so which is it? A lack of faith or fear tactics?

The harbingers God sends us are His attempt to correct our path. Many of those prophecies have been fulfilled, but just as many have not. The war in Ukraine is NOT the Ezekiel war, not even close. Each world war was considered an end time sign as other wars were. tragedies, yes, end of time no. You’ll know the end times are here when the rapture happens and Jesus returns … that can happen before you take your next breath, next week, or in your grandchildren’s life. but, but,   some pastors say the end times signs are all around us!  Really, do so homework, research how far back-end time messages have been being preached. 

Myself, I’d rather do what my bible says, please take some time and look up these scriptures for yourself; 1 Peter 3:15, 1 Corinthians 16:13, Proverbs 6:6-8, Hebrews 11:7. There’s more, spend some time in the word and search them out, get into it, it’s really eye-opening.

Our government has spiraled out of control as well as many other countries along with us. All caused by self-centered greed for power and riches by those at the top. It’s not just government but big business too, there’s price gouging all around us, gas prices, you get charged anywhere from .05 cents to .10 cents a gallon if you use a credit card. Think about the American trucker taking 400 gallons … what a rip-off.  This doesn’t include All the fuel taxes that’s suppose to go to highway maintenance. Where did that go? Not in highway maintenance, that’s for sure! How about that billion-dollar infrastructure bill that was past? Isn’t that suppose to do the same thing? Where’s all that money going? I believe we use to call that double-dipping.

How can we do anything about it?

Quit voting personality and vote for America.

Like laughing, Harris said; “you got what you voted for.”

Unless you’re anti-American (then you should move to a country that would embrace your views) you can see we need to do an about-face and get this country back on track. Straighten out our voting laws and then take back control of our country at the poles. If you’re a Christian and I mean “if”, vote like it! You can’t be biblically correct and politically correct (oil and water) or sitting on the fence. there’s no in-between. Revelation 3:16 So because you are lukewarm and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth. Killing unborn babies? you know what God thinks of that … how did you vote last time? Homosexuality, you know what God thinks of that … how did you vote last time. You call yourself a Christian … How did you vote last time? Are you getting the point?

All that sounds pretty harsh doesn’t it? but it’s all the bare truth, no fluff. It’s way past time to declare your real path, God’s grace is still there, He’s willing to forgive, are you willing to commit? I mean really commit, not just lip service?

Is your life all about I, I, I, or me, me, me, is money, earthly treasures, and power the most important things in your life?

When people look at you what do they see? … The love Jesus or do they see look at me, all my power, money, cars, big house, see how great I am?

Are you in a ministry for money or the look at me factor, if you are, you have a real problem? I pray you are none of the above. A Godly person should reflect the Lord’s love, not be some scripture spouting no it all, with a holier than thou attitude? God doesn’t want head knowledge, he wants heart knowledge.

Take some time to think about where you’re heart lies, … are you really walking with Him? you don’t have to answer me or even yourself, … but remember, you will have to answer for your decisions when you stand before God.

Here’s the good news … It’s not too late to get back on that narrow path or if you’ve never had that personal relationship with the Lord, it’s a good time to get started. Either way …He’s waiting, it’s your choice.

The Lord loves all of us, sinners and saints alike, remember, we’re ALL sinners and fall short of the glory of God. If someone around you goes around spouting scriptures ( memorizing scripture is a good thing if it is in your heart and not just a head thing)  acting pompous and self-righteous that’s the time to do the real Christian thing for a person like that … pray for them! 

God has given me so much to write about, waking me up in the wee hours, driving down the highway,  I could go on writing for hours… but I won’t. I’ll save it till next time when we all get together. KEEP LOOKING UP! Rember … anytime, day or night … Just be ready!

We give You all the praise and glory!

In Jesus’s name, we pray,


God Is More Awesome Than You Can Imagine…



Psalms 78:19, Then they spoke against God;
They said, “Can God prepare a table in the wilderness?

This question would not be so absurd if God had not parted the Red Sea. Think of all the mighty miracles that God worked in the land of Egypt in the process of delivering them. We must answer as Christians with a loud Amen!… God can!


God saved Saul of Tarsus; Acts 9:1-6,  Now Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest, and asked for letters from him to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, both men, and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him; and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?” And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” And He said, “I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, but get up and enter the city, and it will be told you what you must do.”

I doubt seriously if the early church was praying for Saul’s conversion. Is Saul of Tarsus a candidate for salvation? I don’t think so. But God has the ability to save the unsavable.

God saved the whole city of Nineveh; Do you think that Jonah prayed for the salvation of those in Nineveh? I think he thought they were unsavable. However, Jonah discovered that… God is able to save the unsavable.

God saved homosexuals in Corinth; What about God saving the homosexual? 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you, but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.


God restored David; David was guilty of the murder of Uriah and adultery with his wife. Surely David can’t be restored; Psalm 51. Be gracious to me, O God, according to Your lovingkindness; According to the greatness of Your compassion blot out my transgressions.Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin.For I know my transgressions, and my sin is ever before me.Against You, You only, I have sinned and done what is evil in Your sight, so that You are justified when You speak and blameless when You judge.Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity, and in sin, my mother conceived me.Behold, You desire truth in the innermost being, and in the hidden part, You will make me know wisdom.7Purify me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.8 Make me to hear joy and gladness, Let the bones which You have broken rejoice.Hide Your face from my sins and blot out all my iniquities.10 Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.11 Do not cast me away from Your presence and do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and sustain me with a willing spirit.13 Then I will teach transgressors Your ways, and sinners will be converted to You.14 Deliver me from bloodguiltiness, O God, the God of my salvation; Then my tongue will joyfully sing of Your righteousness.15 O Lord, open my lips, that my mouth may declare Your praise.16 For You do not delight in sacrifice, otherwise, I would give it; you are not pleased with burnt offering.17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O God, You will not despise.18 By Your favor do good to Zion; build the walls of Jerusalem.19 Then You will delight in righteous sacrifices, In burnt offering and whole burnt offering; Then young bulls will be offered on Your altar.

God restored Peter after his denial; Matt 26:69-75  69 Now Peter was sitting outside in the courtyard, and a servant-girl came to him and said, “You too were with Jesus the Galilean.” 70 But he denied it before them all, saying, “I do not know what you are talking about.” 71 When he had gone out to the gateway, another servant-girl saw him and *said to those who were there, “This man was with Jesus of Nazareth.” 72 And again he denied it with an oath, “I do not know the man.” 73 A little later the bystanders came up and said to Peter, “Surely you too are one of them; for even the way you talk gives you away.” 74 Then he began to curse and swear, “I do not know the man!” And immediately a rooster crowed. 75 And Peter remembered the word which Jesus had said, “Before a rooster crows, you will deny Me three times.” And he went out and wept bitterly. and compare John 21:15-22 15 So when they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me more than these?” He said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Tend My lambs.” 16 He said to him again a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” He *said to Him, “Yes, Lord; You know that I love You.” He said to him, “Shepherd My sheep.” 17 He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love Me?” Peter was grieved because He said to him the third time, “Do you love Me?” And he said to Him, “Lord, You know all things; You know that I love You.” Jesus said to him, “Tend My sheep.18 Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go.” 19 Now this He said, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, “Follow Me!” 20 Peter, turning around, *saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them; the one who also had leaned back on His bosom at the supper and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” 21 So Peter seeing him *said to Jesus, “Lord, and what about this man?” 22 Jesus said to him, “If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!”

 I can imagine that Peter would like to have crawled in a spider-hole with Saddam Hussein. Jesus didn’t even bring it up. It had been settled when Peter went out and wept bitterly. What our Lord forgives he forgets.


Elisha and the ax head; 2 Kings 6:5-6, But as one was felling a beam, the ax head fell into the water; and he cried out and said, “Alas, my master! For it was borrowed.” Then the man of God said, “Where did it fall?” And when he showed him the place, he cut off a stick and threw it in there, and made the iron float.

These words came from the lips of a man who was trying to do good with a borrowed ax. The ax-head fell off and in went to the bottom of the Jordan River. What do you think this man thought when Elisha put the stick into the water?… What happened was unthinkable.

He can raise the dead; Mark 5:35-43. 35 While He was still speaking, they came from the house of the synagogue official, saying, “Your daughter has died; why trouble the Teacher anymore?” 36 But Jesus, overhearing what was being spoken, said to the synagogue official, “Do not be afraid any longer, only believe.” 37 And He allowed no one to accompany Him, except Peter and James and John the brother of James. 38 They came to the house of the synagogue official, and He saw a commotion, and people loudly weeping and wailing. 39 And entering in, He *said to them, “Why make a commotion and weep? The child has not died, but is asleep.” 40 They began laughing at Him. But putting them all out, He took along the child’s father and mother and His own companions and entered the room where the child was. 41 Taking the child by the hand, He said to her, “Talitha kum!” (which translated means, “Little girl, I say to you, get up!”). 42 Immediately the girl got up and began to walk, for she was twelve years old. And immediately they were completely astounded. 43 And He gave them strict orders that no one should know about this, and He said that something should be given her to eat.

Reading this passage you discover that those associated with this man and his daughter had accepted that she was dead and there was no more need for Jesus. However, that’s not how Jesus thought. Jesus as the incarnate God in a human body had no problem with raising the dead. He did because… God can do the unthinkable.

He can be everyplace at once; Matthew 10:29 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. It is unthinkable that even God has the power and presence and omniscience to know when a sparrow falls to the ground anywhere on planet earth… However, God can.

God can recall every idle word; Matthew 12:36 36 But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. We better watch what we say because this is going to happen because He said it is. How big is our God? Can God remember every idle word that we say, even the ones we say under our breath?… He’s awesome, God can.


2 Corinthians 8:1-4,  Now, brethren, we wish to make known to you the grace of God which has been given in the churches of Macedonia, that in a great ordeal of affliction their abundance of joy and their deep poverty overflowed in the wealth of their liberality. For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints,

I pray people who are involved in faith-promise missions can learn from these verses. Paul uses the words “deep poverty” to describe them. Yet he said they gave beyond their power. It is not hard to figure out that if they were giving beyond their power, God was supplying them with money to give.

What do we learn from this? We learn that when God supplies we can promise money that we don’t have to give to His work. Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?… God can!

May the Lord bless these words to our hearts. Until we get together again, many blessings, stay safe, and KEEP LOOKING UP!

Semper Fidelis


My prayer for you:  Jesus Blessing Soldier

May the blessings, peace, and security in knowing the Lord Jesus Christ still your fears of this life and fill your heart with joy.

Lord, I pray for peace in the war between Russia and Ukraine and the evil ones to be brought to justice.  I pray the eyes in our country be opened to the unconscionable things being heaped on the American people by power-hungry politicians in our government. I pray you to reveal the truth and bring the guilty to swift justice. Father God, I pray for a revival to start in our land like none saw before, that it would sweep around the world, changing hearts and minds. We need you so badly Lord, you’re our hope and salvation, ALL things are possible with You.

I lay our petition before you in the name above all names, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ,
