Lest we forget


Life is divided into three terms – that which was, which is,
and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present,
and from the present, to live better in the future.

William Wordsworth

Throughout much of the past couple of months leading up to last week’s
debacle, I mean election,
I’ve been slowly making my way through my latest read…a book by Erik Larson.

I had read other books by Larson in years past, and I expected this current read to be right
on par with his previous books…books that look back to a past of darker days…
darker than the days of our current time…
As in yes, there have been darker times…if you can imagine such.

The book is titled The Splendid and The Vile:
A Saga of Chruchill, Family, And Defiance During…

Jesus Quotes and God Thoughts

Image result for false prophetsThis is a series of quotes to emphasize the seriousness of deception and our responsibility to look out for it constantly.

I must be careful. It is easy to get confused and stumble around. I have been brought out of slavery but will I see the promised land? I must listen to what God has said. That requires I know the word of God in a very detailed way.

Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. “You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down…

The Earth Spins

In 1972, while I was just entering my teens and living in Delaware, my Dad became involved with a local politician trying to make it big time. So involved, he became one of his campaign managers. Delaware had two senators. One was William Roth, a Republican, and the other seat was available. Aiming for this seat was a young Joe Biden, a relative unknown. My Dad and Step Mother (whom was one of the three that the Glass Slipper did not fit) were hard core Democrats, and my folks were a friend of his, so…he became one of Joe’s inner circle.

He, his wife and his new born daughter (before they died in the crash) used to come over for dinners on Sundays to “talk strategy”. I guess they figured I was just going to be a babysitter for his daughter, but no, I preferred to sit in on their…

The Domain for Truth

My dear brother Ricky W. Roldan of Urban Reformed Podcast is a blessing to me.  He recently taught a four part series over Zoom to believers in India.  This series was setup and hosted by B.O.A.T a Christian ministry in India.

I’m always glad to see Presuppositonal apologetics taught in different countries and context.  Actually I’m glad to see the Bible and the Gospel and a Biblical worldview is taught in various cultures and countries!

Here’s the series:

A family matter of great importance.


Gleaned from the writings of J.C. Ryle by Michael Jeshurun

No matter how long you’ve been a born-again Christian, or how sanctified or well-versed in the Word you might be, the child born to you will be as Totally Depraved as you and that from the womb! [Psa 58:3] – M.J.

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” [Prov 22:6]

I suppose that most professing Christians are acquainted with the text at the head of this page. The sound of it is probably familiar to your ears, like an old tune. It is likely you have heard it, or read it, talked of it, or quoted it, many a time. Is it not so?

But, after all, how little is the substance of this text regarded! The doctrine…

Heavy lesson here.


compiled by Michael Jeshurun

“Every branch in Me that beareth not fruit He taketh away!” [John 15:2]

This verse has been one of the historical battlegrounds of doctrinal interpretation only second to Hebrews 6. Not only has this text provided the field for forgetting those things which are behind many battles between the two schools of theology – Arminian and Calvinist, but even among Calvinists themselves there has been disagreement as to the interpretation of this passage. Though there are other important problems in the parable of John 15:1-8, the most significant question concerns THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE UNFRUITFUL BRANCHES mentioned in the parable.

Arminians have generally understood the unfruitful branches as representative of true believers who, because they become unfruitful, lose their salvation and consequently are ultimately cast into the fires of hell.

But that…

A Call To The Remnant

I have no hesitation in saying that it is my honest and charitable conviction that the Christ of the average religion today is not the Christ of the Bible at all. He is a manufactured Christ, the Christ painted on canvas, the Christ drawn from cheap poetry, a Christ of the liberal and the soft and timid person. He is an imitation Christ that has not in Him the iron and the fury and the anger, as well as the love and grace and mercy (A.W.Tozer-Living a Christian life. pg 218)

Tozer was right in his day, and, I put it to you, we find ourselves in very much more degraded days than his. The Christ, for the most part, that is propagated today is a mere Santa Claus figure, gentle and timid and somewhat fearful of man. This man made Christ watches over men and smiles approvingly at all…

Absolute Truth from the Word of God

A few days ago, I wrote about a very brave doctor from Germany who is speaking truth about the Covid-19 tyranny and how it must stop. Dr. Heiko Schoning was in London speaking his mind about the so-called pandemic and was arrested and thrown into jail. He was released and returned to Germany.

If you missed that article, I will post the link here:

“DOCTORS FOR THE TRUTH” Doctors from Europe for the TRUTH About Covid-19: Watch Leader of Group Arrested in London – This is INSANITY

I am not certain if the enormous group of doctors and nurses who call themselves “Doctors for Truth” is part of Dr. Shoning’s group or not. I pray that if they are separate groups that they come together – Strength in Numbers…….

More to think about and pray for direction


Michael Jeshurun

An article inspired by the question-

“We all talk of ‘Christian brothers’ being ‘united in the faith’. Loosely translated we could call it ‘Doctrinal unity’. But how much unity of doctrine is necessary to qualify another as a ‘Christian brother’. Any comments”?

Christian unity is desirable and something that we should strive for and maybe even pray for. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard . . . .for THERE the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore”. [Psalm 133]

The Apostle in the same vein of thought says- “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that…
