Be a Compost Christian

You say what is a compost Christian. Before we answer that, what is compost? Compost is organic matter that has been decomposed in a process called composting. This process recycles various organic materials otherwise regarded as waste products and produces compost. it is made up of food scraps, grass clippings, leaves and other organic matter. There are certain items that should never be in compost. These items are mainly meat, fish, and dairy products.

To gardeners, compost is considered “black gold” because of its many benefits in the garden.

So what do I mean by compost Christians. God wants you and I (organic material) to be rich in His nutrients to the point that we are beneficial to this world of darkness. Continue reading “Be a Compost Christian” »

Do You Have Salvation-Born Again?

Do You Have Salvation-Born Again?

Seven Indicators of True Salvation
Every person who believes they have a saving relationship with God should sincerely look at the following indicators of a born again experience and ask themselves if these indicators are in their life. If they are not, then the principles found in Scripture indicate you are not born again-you do not have a born again relationship through Jesus Christ and you need to get born again-saved.  (Here is helpful info: http://www.thereishopetv.org/spiritual-resources)

Romans 10:9‐10 (NKJV)
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Continue reading “Do You Have Salvation-Born Again?” »

The Lord is My Keeper

The Lord is My Keeper

As I was driving early in the morning, I encountered on the road three dead skunks, three dead possums, garbage bag in the road, and a deer jumped right in front of me. Praise God I did not hit anything. Right after this, Pastor David Jeremiah came on the radio and shared Psalm 121:5-8. No one can tell me that Almighty God is not a personal God. It is unfathomable to  me to believe that this was all coincidental. (I like the definition one pastor gave for the word coincidental-‘when God does something and we do not give Him credit for it’.)

How Old is the Universe?

How Old is the Universe?

For years scientists decided the universe was 13.8 billion years old. But now it appears the universe is 12.5 billion years old. “If all the numbers are correct, then the problem must run deeper. It must lie in our interpretation of those numbers — that is, in our fundamental models of how the universe works. “The discrepancy suggests that there’s something in the cosmological model that we’re not understanding right,” Riess says. What that something could be, nobody knows.”  (Link to article at end of this blog post.) Continue reading “How Old is the Universe?” »

Body of Christ-Spiritual Warriors

The Body of Christ is made up of Christians from a variety of denominations, churches, cultures, doctrinal beliefs. Needless to say, the Body of Christ is a very diverse group. Being diverse, there can be division among the Body of Christ. However, when the Body of Christ unites together in prayer, there can be great unity. Powerful unity. With unity there can be powerful prayer. With powerful unity and powerful prayer there can be spiritual warfare.

Acts 1:4-5,8
4  Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, “Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before.
5  John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.
8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

Merge with God 2

Merge with God

I made a big mistake and when I make mistakes I always look for lessons out of them. Invariably the Holy Spirit speaks to me. It is a practice we all should have in our life.

I have been interviewing people over the phone the last couple of days. I have software on my phone so I can record the calls. After each call I make I get a notice that the call has been recorded. Since I saw the notice, I never checked to see if the calls were being recorded. It turns out there was only dead space being recorded. Not good needless to say. Continue reading “Merge with God” »

Complacency Kills 2

complacency killsComplacency Kills

Those who are complacent (self-satisfied, self-regarding, satisfied, pleased) about their spiritual life, those who are content with a mediocre relationship with God are those who will most likely become prey to the tactics of Satan. A stagnant soul is a soul that lacks the move of God’s Spirit.

Sadly many Christians are living a complacent Christian life and have no desire to grow in Christ, to be vessels used by God. They have no desire to Make a Difference in this world. Truth is there are individuals who have no relationship with Christ that are doing more than most Christians. This breaks the heart of God. Continue reading “Complacency Kills” »
