Matthew 7:6 (peshitta)
Do not give holy things to the dogs; and do not throw your pearls before swine, [Do not speak words of wisdom to fools.] for they might tread them with their feet, and then turn and rend you.

My God will supply

John Knox+

God is our present provider and he is willing to empty his storehouse of blessings upon those who cry out to him with a hunger and thirst born of his love. God has promised to provide us with everything for our enjoyment. Whatever we lack at the present time is available from the Father of Lights who delights to give good things to his children. Seek my face for all your needs says the Lord. I feed ravens to my children; I provided manna to my chosen ones. How much more will I open the doors of my blessings to those whose life is hid in Christ, my Son who intercedes for you day and night. I sense in my spirit that those who have prodigals that need to return; God will provide a way back for them. Ask, seek and knock for provision is about to be loosed on those who have enlarged their......

50th wedding anniversary

Fifty years ago today on Saturday October 21, 1967, William Albert von Lehe and Dorothy Christine Oman, stood at the altar of Mount Carmel Lutheran Church in St. Paul, Minnesota, and entered into the sacred covenant of marriage. Standing before God we took our vows to take each other as husband and wife, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health as long as we both shall live. We have been true to each other for 50 years and have not broken this covenant relationship. We made it this far, so we will stick to the "so long as we both shall live" part of our vows, too. It has been an interesting and challenging 50 years. I do so love our three children, Angela, age 48, Richard, age 47, and Cathleen, age 42, and our awesome five grandchildren,......

Pray for deliverance and break free the bondages

Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Our being is a combination of Physical and Spiritual body. We feel the sickness in our physical body and we get healed in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. Similarly we get attacked by the demons and the devil in our spiritual body and we get delivered from them in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have no idea of the number of demons that are fleeing from us every time we say the name Jesus. We have no idea of the number of demons from whom we were delivered when we first accepted Jesus and were......

The monster and me

Before I could name you, I thought I was nothing more than you. The monsters I thought were living under my bed were nothing compared to you, the monster in my mind—a never satisfied monster named: Shame. No matter how fast I ran in the direction of self acceptance, you’d catch up and whisper, “You are innately wrong. There is nothing good about you. You don’t matter.” You left me with a painful weight in my chest after each perceived mistake. You left me with paralysing fear after laughing loudly or talking a bit too much. You left me with my hands shaking each time I was corrected no matter how gently. You left me to spend hours locked in my dark closet letting my tears soak the carpeted floor. Soon, you got smarter. You became meaner than the bullies. You......

An invitation to join the process

A recent blog written by @watchmanjohn has caused me to ponder the question of why God heals/delivers instantaneously at times while other times seems to do it slowly or not at all. It is a valid question but unfortunately the asker is often given the wrong answer. They are told it is because they do not have enough faith. Do we really realize the false message we are sending? Do we realize we have just told the person they are not good enough to be healed or be delivered? Jesus said that if we had even a mustard seed of faith we could move a mountain into the sea. A mustard seed of faith. Tell me, isn't the very act of crying out to God "a mustard seed of faith"? I believe it is. So why does God sometimes seem to move instantaneously and other times seem to move painfully......

Written in my heart end time dreams with messages

Written In My Heart: End Time Dreams with Messages As promised, I will now begin to share the specific end time dreams God chose for me to receive. In this writing I am sharing four dreams. In other writings I will further discuss each dream and prayerfully provide a greater sense and perspective of what I believe the dreams are revealing. As I begin, I wish to point out: The four particular dreams discussed in this writing are the only dreams I have received that include a spoken message from the Holy Spirit. I believe the Holy Spirit had me focus on "sequence" so I am starting with some of the testimony shared in a previous writing. During the early morning hours of Saturday, October 27, 2001, God revealed this assignment to me spoken by the Holy Spirit: Minister to......

40 years of wilderness for the israelites

We read about the Serpent, the ancient enemy, in the Book of Genesis, then the sins of the people who had relationships with the Sons of God and the appraance of Nephilim on the earth then the wrath of God and the flood. After that we read about how God lead Abraham, Issac, Jacob and His decedents to the Chosen land, but before entering the chosen land we again hear about the Nephilim (Numbers 13:33). Other than this there is no explict call out of Satan or His demons till in 1 Chronicles 21:1 Satan rose up against Israel and incited David to take a census of Israel. Also, we read David praying Psalm 51:11 Do not cast me from your presence or take your Holy Spirit from me. Though we dont see Satan or his demons being explictly called out, it does not mean that he was not working. We see......

The candy dish

As he made his rounds, he noticed something. No one was smiling. No one was even making eye-contact. While it was true this worksite was going to be eventually closed down as people gradually moved into the new campus being built, the pervasive sense of isolation bothered him. He decided to make an impact in his world rather than allow it to impact him. Now he didn't do anything earth-shattering. It didn't make the headlines, no one made a book or movie out of it and in fact, he didn't tell anyone he was going to do it. He simply did it. He smiled at people and greeted them as they passed by. That was it. That was all he did and a change began to take place in the silent building that had seemed like a mausoleum the first time I was there. Not only did people begin to respond......

An identity crisis

"My people are destroyed from a lack of knowledge." (Hosea 4:6) As I was reading the above scripture, the Holy Spirit was drawing me into the deep. The words of the minor prophet were as if they were the only words on the entire page. I was completely drawn in. Instinctively, I knew God wanted my attention. In the stillness of the moment, the next impressions to flood my thoughts were prompted by the Holy Spirit. He brought to my remembrance " The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight"(Proverbs 9:10). In excitement, I grabbed my notepad to record these verses of scripture that the Lord would reveal the message/teaching I would be entrusted with. Now, I don't want to sound like this happened overnight. In fact, I......

A matter of the heart

Ezekiel 36:26 “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you a heart of flesh.” Today, I have a mini Bible Lesson. The topic is: A Matter of the Heart Let’s excavate the above scripture. The scripture was taken from a conversation that God was having with the prophet Ezekiel. Ezekiel was called to be a prophet to Israel during Israel’s captivity in Babylon for their disobedience and sin against God. God called him to strengthen Israel with messages of hope and deliverance of His revealed plan of release from captivity, restoration and the return to their homeland. But, why did Israel become captives to another nation? Sin and disobedience against God caused their......

Our biggest problem and greatest need

Gal. 2:20 - I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (KJV) Many things have been written about this verse on CB and the Christian world. This translation is chosen for a very specific reason. I and we too often speak and think of Christ and the crucifixion in past tense. Something done two thousand years ago allowing us to now consider ourselves dead to sin and alive to righteousness. The Lord is very specifically making a point of this truth present tense. At this very moment, are we crucified in Christ whatever we are doing or encounter? Is my heart, thoughts, and life given completely to this notion … I am crucified......

Gal. 5:22, 23 - But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. (NASB) Dear Heavenly Father, Thank you so much for today for Your Spirit and Word. I write a simple thanks to You! Though others grow tired of hearing my woes … Thank you there were no anxiety attacks today! Thank you Lord Jesus. Praise Your Name! I sound like those thanking You for a day without drink. There has not been a day like this for two years. Only something, the Lord of all could do. Thanks and praise to Your Name! Giving rest to my soul, what wondrous grace! Speaking now of Your yoke easy and light. You are gracious to all who seek You. Lord, I ask the Spirit helps make this a day of remembrance.......
