Motherhood is a Calling

The Road


This is from the blog Deep and Wide:

By Rachel Jankovic

A few years ago, when I just had four children and when the oldest was still three, I loaded them all up to go on a walk. After the final sippy cup had found a place and we were ready to go, my two-year-old turned to me and said, “Wow! You have your hands full!”

She could have just as well said, “Don’t you know what causes that?” or “Are they all yours?!”

Everywhere you go, people want to talk about your children. Why you shouldn’t have had them, how you could have prevented them, and why they would never do what you have done. They want to make sure you know that you won’t be smiling anymore when they are teenagers. All this at the grocery store, in line, while your children listen.

A Rock-Bottom Job?

The times in which the prophet Jeremiah lived and the message God gave him to preach can be compared to the times in which we are living in.

Jeremiah lived in a time of great apostasy! And are we not living in such times? We are living in a time when men are most religious and claim to know the God of the Bible, but are in truth actually worshipping ‘another Jesus’! On one hand we have the deadly error of Arminianism which has pervaded almost all recognized denominations and on the other hand we have those who claim to believe in the Sovereign God and the Sovereignty of God in salvation and yet live an antinomian life – Like the men in the days of Jeremiah God says of them that they – “come and stand before Me in this house, which…

For those who have ears let them hear.

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

In these last days, Jesus warned of false teachers and to beware of them.We are seeing this unfolding before our eyes. But sometimes (as the devil does so well) it sounds believable and before long, many of us are pulled into heretical teaching.  Our Lord wants to keep us safe from False Teachers. His Word is there for us for this purpose.

I was reading Acts 17 and of course came upon this passage of Scripture:

“These were more fair-minded than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness, and searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so”  (Acts 17:11).

Acts 17:11 is preached to this day to impart to God’s people a most important Truth. The Bereans had heard Paul and Silas preach to them. The Word says that these Berean Jews received the word with all readiness; but what…

“Equality Act” Seeks Federal Persecution of Christians

The New American reports:

Democrats in Congress are pushing “equality” legislation that critics say would criminalize Christianity, Islam, and Judaism by forcing virtually every institution in society — including religious institutions — to hire, serve, and promote homosexuals and individuals confused about their gender. A number of analysts have warned that by enshrining “sexual orientation” in the statute, even pedophilia and pederasty could be protected. In the House of Representatives, Democrats already have more than enough co-sponsors to pass the bill. And in the Senate, they are getting very close. But a massive coalition of critics from across the political spectrum and a broad array of religious traditions is rising up to stop it before it is too late.

Among other changes, the so-called Equality Act, also known as H.R. 5 in the House and S. 788 in the Senate, purports to…

“As Many As A Million Calves Lost In Nebraska” – Beef Prices In The U.S. To Escalate Dramatically In The Coming Months

TEC Blog reports:

According to Agriculture Secretary Sunny Purdue, there “may be as many as a million calves lost in Nebraska” due to the catastrophic flooding that has hit the state.  This is not a rumor, this is not an exaggeration, and this is not based on any sort of speculation.  This number comes to us directly from the top agriculture official in the entire country, and it means that the economic toll from the recent floods is far greater than most of us had anticipated.  You can watch Purdue make this quote on Fox Business right here, and it is important to remember that this number is just for one state.  It is hard to imagine…

Truth always come out.

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

I love David Horowitz.

Not just because he is a fellow Jew ( he doesn’t know Yeshua yet and says he doesn’t even believe in God) but because he is a truth teller – a Conservative, brilliant teller of truth. He’s brave, you know. Just as Blacks are expected to be Liberal Democrats, the same has always been for Jews. We are expected to go to synagogue, love our heritage and traditions and vote Democratic.  The “voting” part is of utmost important.

I believe that Jesus has big plans for David Horowitz.  I am praying for his Salvation.

David Horowitz was invited to speak to students from UC Berkeley in 2017. It was decided that having the students hear this Conservative scholar’s words would be harmful to them.  The powers that be at UC Berkeley alerted him that they were cancelling his visit for the safety of their students.
