This year, it appears as though the Christmas Season has been pushed onto society. Throughout the sales market, Christmas-themed products were pushed before the season started. Additionally, community events were long announced through many organizations as well as members of the city government. Yet for me, it has been an empty season; superficial, little to do with the “real” Christmas Season.
Coffee is an international commodity. Coffee is a liaison for social relations. Coffee is an element by which people may come into fellowship with Jesus.
Sometimes we "really" want to hear God reply to our prayer. So we do what we have to do to hear from Him. There are times when He may choose different means by which to do so. In this passage, I will share how God chose to lead me to His Word one evening. Then, the following morning He chose to project a vision of what is going on or is to come, within the spiritual realm.
Quite frankly I cannot speak with certainty as to the origins and purpose of the Covid-19 Virus. I believe that God continues to have a hand in the matter to draw the world closer toward the return of Jesus the Messiah. I believe that there is an attribute of origin to the country of China. I know that the CV has spread to many countries, cities, towns, and even villages. I also know that the CV has left a negative impact upon the lives of many who could be rich or poor, healthy or ill, as well as atheists or spirit-filled believers of Jesus the Messiah.
As we are entering the last month of the year, I find myself facing more and more challenges. Some challenges are of a personal nature, while others of a familial one. Additionally, there are other areas within my life that also are pressing on me. Although my identity remains primarily with Yeshua, it is still a challenging and pressing time for me. I continue to both study the Bible as well as cultural books about the Bible. Furthermore, I continue to read biographies of members of the persecuted Body of Yeshua. It is somewhat frustrating that I cannot study as well as I used to or share my findings as well.
Although I do other things around the house, they do not hold lasting satisfaction as the things I mentioned before. It is my hope that things will improve before the end of the year.

In the Book of Exodus, Chapter 19, the first blast of a horn was heard from God at Mount Sinai (Exodus 19:16-19). God spoke to the People of Israel and established what is now known as the Mosaic Covenant (Exodus 19:3-6, 7-13). It was through the blast of the horn that God called the attention of the People of Israel.
It has been close to 45 days since my last "notice" post. Things have changed much since that moment in time; my family dynamics. I have not been able to attend to my posts as I would have liked to do so. I will address them, but at a slower rate.

Notice, I will be uploading archived records from 2010 and older. These posts have now been retrieved from a back-up drive and are being modified to be posted on this site. It is my hope to finish this work by the end of this coming weekend. I will temporarily post the "archives" module to monitor the progress. However, once the work is complete, I will remove it. However, the posts will be accessible through the "categories" module.

Quick update/notice. It has been about a week since Jesus helped me acquire a new and faster laptop. I am grateful for what He has provided and looking forward to use it to both minister and share my thoughts with others through this website and other venues. It is my hope to be able to post more frequently.

The means by which people travel from one place to another has not changed by much within the past century. However, a person's need to be ready for survival scenarios has changed. There are now more severe weather occurrences, accidents, as well as civil unrest within diverse communities. In this selection, I will present a basic Urban Survival Kit (USK) so that you may be prepared with a compact resource that may be carried into most places.
