Living Hope


Cry records her dad’s favorite song for him to listen to during the most challenging days of his life. ”Take Me To The River” In acapella- sung to him by the voice he often joined, and blended so beautifully with, in better times. Something about that song resignated with him the last few weeks of his life. He fought the good fight, brave and beautiful, faithful to the end. Never wavering. There is a river that makes glad the city of our God! His home going was wrapped in heavenly visions, as he communicated with both worlds fully awake. Death where is thy sting? The crucifixion of Christ, the strange darkness, and earthquake that shook calvery’s scene, gripped the Lord’s followers with doubts and fears. His tortured, bruised, and mangled body, taunted them for believing that He was the promised one to come. As He was lowered from the cross and taken to the tomb.

Like wise our circumstances in life often do the same. They taunt us at the broken remains of our hopes and dreams, that carried an expectation, for better times and lovelier days. But the keeping power of God’s love, and amazing grace, is stronger than anyone can ever imagine, for those who trust in Him. No matter how dark the night Jesus displayed to the world, as sure as the sun comes up, that joy comes in the morning! Our faith is justified by the power of His resurrection. 2000 years have passed, kingdoms have come and gone; rulers have risen and fallen; even now churches stand empty through out the world, but the testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ remains, and we still celebrate Resurrection Day. Remembering His words that have carried the faithful for two millenniums, “… And, lo I Am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Math 28:20

John 5:26

For as the Father has life in Himself, so also He has granted the Son to have life in Himself.

John 6:39

And this is the will of Him who sent Me, that I shall lose none of those He has given Me, but raise them up at the last day.

John 14:6

Jesus answered, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No man comes to the Father except by Me.

Colossians 3:4

When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Revelation 1:18

I am He that lived and was dead, and behold, now I am alive forever more! And I have the keys of Death and of Hell.

2017 And The Whirl Wind Harvest

Hosea 8:7

“For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind”

A word for 2017 originally published Dec 23rd in podcast format.

Dodging the bullet in time to pass through the eye of the storm, these are the days of the whirl wind harvest. While droves become corrupted and led astray by words of flattery, the people that KNOW there God will do great exploits accomplishing acts of valor, motivated by love. For they that wait upon the Lord (in patient endurance) shall rise up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint. Tomorrow will not be possessed by the cowardly of heart, but the night will be overcome by those who endure in long suffering, it is they that will be as columns bearing up the portico of the TEMPLE of our God.

 Of those KEEPING THE WORD OF HIS PATIENCE

Revelation 3:10-13

Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. [leading you to the renouncement of your faith] Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.
