ramblings
from art katz, an interesting thing to contemplate
the tree of life in the garden of eden, may have had some aspect of "death"
much as the cross was necessary for life to come to us, and so the
tree of the knowledge of good and evil may have appeared alot more attractive

bottom line on that thought, be very aware when you speak or act without prayer, time with God, leading from God, ... you are most likely acting from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and you don't know or are not accessing the tree of LIFE///

"Holy Holy Holy" ..."Worthy is the Lamb that was slain.." It would do us good to contemplate that no matter what the ups and downs are that are happening here in this passing world the songs in heaven NEVER change their tone or message... Maturity is measured in the ability to love and stay steady, and trusting in God no matter what the circumstances..///

Grace, rejoice, how often i fall into trouble when i forget how grateful and in love with God i should be based on His Amazing Grace, the depth of my evil, should cause the height of my praise to His glorious grace///

recently i spent some time with God just seeking to get to the root of 6 or 7 problems that i have identified in my life and i was suprised to see "fear" show up as the root as often as selfishness
only "lack of Love" which showed up once broke up the pattern of fear and selfishness...
my personality is to "control" and the fear rises when situations and people feel out of control

so God continue to help me recognize the roots and You, my loving God, take them out.///

Last thing Oswald "God never gives us discernment in order that we may criticize, but that we may intercede."

thanks for reading my ramblings ... hope they are somehow a blessing

i don't know, but i think

this little passage from Jeremiah rebukes Judah for falling into the same sin as Israel
even after Judah saw how God punished Israel
it reminds me of the errors of the institutional catholic church, that have now been totally copied by the institutional protestant church
God always keeps a remnant, by His Grace
so pour out Your Grace and Mercy on us Loving Father, we need it!!


"Have you seen what faithless Israel did? She went up on every high hill and under every green tree, and she was a harlot there.
Jer 3:7
"I thought, 'After she has done all these things she will return to Me'; but she did not return, and her treacherous sister Judah saw it.
Jer 3:8
"And I saw that for all the adulteries of faithless Israel, I had sent her away and given her a writ of divorce, yet her treacherous sister Judah did not fear; but she went and was a harlot also.
Jer 3:9
"Because of the lightness of her harlotry, she polluted the land and committed adultery with stones and trees.
Jer 3:10
"Yet in spite of all this her treacherous sister Judah did not return to Me with all her heart, but rather in deception," declares the LORD.
Jer 3:11
And the LORD said to me, "Faithless Israel has proved herself more righteous than treacherous Judah.

and on a much more "one persons struggle" note
view this video and weep at God's faithfulness to carry little Charli and her family thru cancer

my desire

my desire is to be given a new heart by my Loving Powerful God
a new heart that uses my "free-time" to receive and give out His Love
a new heart that "loves God and hates sin"
a new heart that speaks the truth with uncompromising unafraid boldness
a new heart that apologizes and quickly makes things right when they are wrong
a new heart that laughs and enjoys the simple pleasures
a new heart that carries the burden of the Lord, without appearing burdened
a new heart that has a lazer focus on what is truly important
a new heart that chooses to dwell on the good, pure, true, right, honorable, lovely
thank you God, it is You who gives the new heart, my part is to ask,
so thank you God for a new heart, continue to renew and transform me into the image
of Your Son Jesus.

and just a short question for the current news item,.. the financial investigation
of tv preachers...
If the gospel you preach promises financial prosperity to people, shouldn't you
be more than happy to "brag about" how rich Jesus has made you, so that you
can show how well your "gospel" is working?
seriously this is a wonderful opportunity for each one of these ministries to repent
and say, "Wow we got way off track from the hard and narrow way of Jesus, sorry."
I pray that at least one of them will see the light and do this.

the burden

the true prophets carrying the true message
are all pointing to an absolute collapse of the USA
what can be shaken will be shaken

but it's ok

as i have been sharing with the kids in kids church
the God of Gideon and Elisha loves putting His people
in a position where all the odds are against them
and then... and then... and then...
He comes thru for His Name-sake and recieves all the glory

so "fear not little flock, continue to hear, know and obey His voice"
trials lead to joy
and ultimate trials lead to ultimate joy!

confirmation for prayer

October 8, 2007 my blog spoke of
"then i wondered does this mean the series of attacks or evil works that are going to be inflicted on this country will be done by the hands of children, and that will be all the more shocking and also will be how the events "slip past" the security that is in place..."
today Nov. 5, 2007 this headline and article was on Newsmax.com
Kids Groomed for Terror Attacks
article at http://www.newsmax.com/headlines/children_terror_recruits/2007/11/05/46781.html?s=al&promo_code=3C76-1&utm_source=email&utm_term=3C76-1

so the call to prayer is that these evil schemes would be uncovered and the children saved
I can't imagine any other reason for the "warning" that I feel.
