Open our mind and hearts Lord jesus.



As we come upon the season of celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior 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)

7and 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 evil…

American Gospel : Christ Alone

Reasoned Cases for Christ

american gospel

I don’t know if you have heard about this 2 hour and 20 minute documentary. What I can provide you with is the first 40 minutes of this documentary which is available on YouTube here.  “American Gospel: Christ Alone” is a feature documentary that is 2 hours and 20 minutes in duration. The following is the first 40 minutes of the film, followed by testimony from viewers. The total time for the 40 minute portion is actually 58 minutes and 33 seconds because it includes some testimony from viewers.

I’ve watched the first 58 minute portion available here. It is outstanding, the simple Gospel of Christ. It was simply beautiful to hear and see.

Here is the URL address for the documentaries website: where you can can purchase the media option of choice for the whole documentary via the View Nowoption.

Right From the Horse’s Mouth: A Muslim Educator Explains Their Plans for America

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

First it was “The Religion of Peace.”  We soon understood that this was not a valid description of Islam.  The horrific terror attacks around the world was a wake up call for many countries.

But ironically, after the terror attack using our own airplanes in NY, which took the lives of over 3000 Americans; and the attack on the Pentagon, and of course the plane which was intentionally crashed by passengers who knew that their plane was being used as a missile – instead of anger at Islam, the Left dug in their heals and consoled the Muslims of America because they felt unfairly targeted.

This began the love affair between the Left and Islam, and it continues to this day.


Do I really need to expand on the Islamic State?  These demonic terrorists decimated so many Christian communities in Iraq and Syria; the number of Christians used to…

THE LIST: Muslims in Congress Have Lists of People Who Are NOT Allowed To Attend Their Meetings

The Clock isTticking.

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

So, what is the criteria which the Muslims in our Congress use to form their “No Go” lists?   One point is “Are you a Muslim?”  The second point and equally enforced is “Are you a Jew?”  I am surmising that these Muslims do not open their doors for Evangelicals either.

A FB friend sent me the video of this woman who was kicked out of a Keith Ellison meeting.  By the way, Mr. Ellison was sworn in on a Qur’an. Here is the video:

What Are They Hiding?

I believe that these Muslims, who will NOT defend nor support our Constitution, are discussing their agenda. By that I mean their plans to continue the Political Jihad across America; and with each political position attained by a Muslim, they are plotting to eventually overthrow our Constitution for Sharia law.

I have said this in so many articles, but it is…

Is the Cumulative Evidence for Christianity Strong or Weak?

Surely there is something here of interest.

Reasoned Cases for Christ


The links below are some of the informational links that are available on the Internet which support the strong cumulative evidence for Christianity. However, before you check them out I think it is prudent to make a quote from J. Warner Wallace’s book entitled Cold Case Christianity with regard to the bias that all of us have.

“Make no mistake about it, all of us have a point of view; all of us hold opinions and ideas that color the way we see the world. Anyone who tells you that he (or she) is completely objective and devoid of presuppositions has another more important problem: that person is either astonishingly naive or a liar.”

What that means for me is that someone who, in his/her heart, fundamentally hates God or refuses to accept the possibility of His existence, and/or does not earnestly seek to know Him, is not going to…

“Geranium Power”

Love happy customers

Chapel of Hope Stories

Dear Reader:

Much needed God winks continue to blink, especially during these late winter dreary gray days with intermittent rain forthcoming. Compared to the weather around the rest of the nation ( snow blizzards, floods, droughts)  I know I should be down on my knees remembering Paul’s second letter to the church at Thessalonica…”In everything give thanks.” (And I do believe everything covers dreary gray days!)

I remember hearing or reading once that the most life-altering/forming  times are usually found during the ‘dull in-between times.’ How true…we actually function better during busy times, expectant times, or even in crisis times. It truly is the “dull in-between” periods that bring on bad cases of the “blahs” and test our faith more than ever.

But these trying times have a flip side…we are more open to signs and winks… than at other self-satisfied occasions. Our loyal post reader, Beverly…
