The real Himalayan Blue poppy over on the blog..Tish Farrell  Writer on the Edge   for May 22 is just so ,so pretty.  I just ‘needed’ to make one ,or two ,or three in paper since that is what I do. Do look her up and enjoy all of her writing. She spent a good deal of time in Africa years ago and writes so interestingly about all of her adventures while there with her husband. My own dream trip to Africa is just a dream but I would love to check the bucket list  and go some day.

While I am here ….There seem to be several new wonderful souls who have clicked follow on my blog. Thank you …and even though I don’t post as often as I thought I would…you are most welcome and please continue to enjoy the blogs I repost from those I follow and you never know when I might jump in on my own. I really do have great intention …things just get in my way.   Like the repainting of my kitchen. There of course is a story here but maybe another time.

Please leave a Hi so I know you were here and remember…This is the Lords day…REJOICE.

 

Which side are you on?

WHY WE DO NOT ENDORSE DR. RAVI ZACHARIAS

Michael Jeshurun

It saddened me to hear that Dr. Ravi Zacharias had passed away and I prayed that the Lord would comfort his grieving family. But then just last week I prayed for my cousin who had lost his Roman Catholic father and the week before that I prayed that the Lord would comfort my Mohammedan neighbors who had lost their mother to cancer. Death is indeed a grievous thing and we should grieve with those who have lost their loved ones and pray that God would comfort their hearts. [Rom 12:15]

All that said, I do not grieve for Dr. Ravi Zacharias as I would grieve for a brother or sister in Christ, for the plain reason that the ‘Jesus’ he preached and the ‘gospel’ he eloquently defended is not the Gospel the apostles preached and contended for.

The apostle Paul…

Ravi left this world to be with Jesus this morning (19 May 2020). This is the link to the Obituary for Ravi Zacharias. Please take the time to read it. It is a testimony of what God can do with one man. I take comfort in knowing that Ravi now sees Jesus, His Lord and Saviour, face to face and in addition, is in the presence of his Christian brother Nabeel Qureshi and many others, who Ravi also longed to see.

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

The Source I am using for this article is not a Conservative leaning website. The site is Childrenshealthdefense.org” and it belongs to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. So no liberal can accuse me of sourcing right-leaning websites on this topic.  

Kennedy’s foundation is based on “Truth” and not politicized.  He knows how children all over the world are being harmed by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation!

From Robert Kennedy Jr:

And do you want the lowdown on Dr. Fauci, the NIH doctor who is ALSO on the board of directors of the Gates Foundation? Here it is:

Through the years, I have written extensively about Bill Gates and his connections to Big Pharma; and on the untold number of children in underdeveloped countries he has harmed and killed with his vaccine “cocktails.”

It was a pleasant surprise to come across the foundation of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr:

Yesterday was Good Friday. Tomorrow is Resurrection Sunday. I’ve heard some call today Holy Saturday. While we don’t actually know exactly how the days line up on the calendar, today, at least, symbolizes when Jesus’ body lay in the tomb. It was the Sabbath. The disciples were resting. But they were afraid. Their unconquerable Savior […]

This is a WordPress repost of one of the most comprehensive articles I have read on the historical evidence that supports the resurrection of Jesus Christ. It was originally authored by James Bishop. It is an excellent resource and I highly recommend you bookmark it for future reference.


Did Jesus really rise from the dead?  Is there any evidence that this actually happened, or is this just a product of myth, legend, or religious wishful thinking?  As it turns out, the resurrection of Jesus is well supported by historical evidence and serves as the best explanation for the facts surrounding his life, death, and the emergence of early Christianity.

In this article we shall focus on New Testament Scholar Gary Habermas’ minimal facts approach (MFA). The MFA, explains Habermas, “considers only those data that are so strongly attested historically that they are granted by nearly every scholar who studies the subject…

The Godly Chic Diaries

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16

A good father sent a good son on this Good Friday– that’s today! It’s the good news, a love story that defines the true meaning of amazing Grace and an unfailing LOVE…

Today we commemorate our Lord Jesus Christ for making a great sacrifice and for freeing us, ALL from our sins. He knew the price of those sins was death. He knew the source of those sins was YOU and since He couldn’t bear the thought of eternity without YOU, he chose the nails. By that act of selfless love, Jesus portrayed the STRENGTH, LOVE and FORGIVENESS that lies in the SACRIFICE he made for all of us.

Friends, I encourage you to let this weekend that’s marked in history be…

GOD WILL JUDGE AMERICA!

And so it will be

GOD WILL JUDGE AMERICA!

Michael Jeshurun

There is a remnant of God even in the United States of America, and we praise God for that, but for the most part the USA is as godless and wicked as the world was in Noah’s day and in the days of Lot!

And the American nation is more accountable because she has had more light, more true Gospel, more genuine Christianity than any other nation on the face of the earth. But because she has rejected that light and forsaken her faith, she is in the same state today as backslidden Israel was in the days of Jeremiah.

The Bible predicts that in the Last Days “evil men and seducers will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived” (2 Timothy 3:13). This is surely the case with America. She has gone from bad to worse, which is why we believe that…

PRAY THAT YOU MAY HAVE A HUNGER TO READ GOD’S WORD

“And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask any thing according to His will, He heareth us:
And if we know that He hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of Him.” [1Jn 5:14,15]

Is it God’s will that we read, meditate and delight in His Word?

Then let us seriously pray for that.

Love
Brother Mike

BE BLESSTIFIED!

As we come upon the season of celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Yeshua, Jesus Christ, I’m compelled to share what He placed in my heart years ago…my annual reminder.

John 4:24 proclaims that God is a spirit and we are commanded to worship Him in Spirit and Truth….Spirit and Truth.

God also commanded in Joshua 23:7 that we are not to make mention of or swear by the names of pagan gods, particularly those that were worshiped by the people who surrounded Israel.

 Joshua 23: (NKJV)

and lest you go among these nations, these who remain among you. You shall not MAKE MENTION OF THE NAME of their gods, nor cause anyone to swear by them; you shall not serve them nor bow down to them,

Some of those names were Baal and Ashtoreth (Judges 2:12-15). One of Israel’s greatest sins was when they “did…
