What does the word, "Allah" mean in Hebrew?

The word "Allah" in Hebrew means, "the curse". Muslims use this word in Arabic to mean, "God". An interesting verse in Isaiah shows us how Islam is a curse devouring the whole earth. The scripture verse also shows us how true believers won't be here, as the earth is devoured by this curse. The reason for this is because true believers are not guilty, like those who are on the earth at the time that this curse is devouring.

Therefore the curse has devoured the earth, and those who dwell therein are found guilty. - Isaiah 24:6

Looters In Houston To Face Tougher Sentences

Looters in Houston will be facing tougher penalties for their evil deeds. It's disgraceful when wicked people take advantage of others when they're down. God's word has something to say about this. In fact, as you read the beginning of the book of Proverbs, the admonition to avoid such wickedness is the first advice given to the reader.

My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for innocent blood, let’s ambush some harmless soul; let’s swallow them alive, like the grave,
and whole, like those who go down to the pit; we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder; cast lots with us; we will all share the loot”— my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths; for their feet rush into evil, they are swift to shed blood. How useless to spread a net where every bird can see it! These men lie in wait for their own blood; they ambush only themselves! Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the life of those who get it. - Proverbs 1:10-19

Provocation from Kim Jong-un

The North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un fired a ballistic missile over Japan today. I pray the Lord removes this man from power because he keeps provoking a war. Provocation is no small matter. Anyone who has ever walked a long way with wet sand in the shoes, knows how frustrating that can be.

A stone is heavy, and sand is a burden; but a fool’s provocation is heavier than both. - Proverbs 27:3

Praying for the people of Texas devastated by Hurricane Harvey

I've been praying that the Lord would move his people in Texas to safety until this destruction has passed. When terrible things happen, we need to lean on the word of God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength.

Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge until destruction passes by. - Psalm 57:1

Hurricane Harvey and America's call to repentance

The body of Christ should pray for the Texas coast as Hurricane Harvey makes landfall. Some people believe devastating storms are not sent from God and others believe they are. I believe it could be either. Scripture shows us that when God was getting the attention of Elijah, there were various examples of the power of nature forces.

He said, “Go out, and stand on the mountain before Yahweh.” Behold, Yahweh passed by, and a great and strong wind tore the mountains, and broke in pieces the rocks before Yahweh; but Yahweh was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake; but Yahweh was not in the earthquake.  After the earthquake a fire passed; but Yahweh was not in the fire. After the fire, there was a still small voice. When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle, went out, and stood in the entrance of the cave. Behold, a voice came to him, and said, “What are you doing here, Elijah?” - 1Kings 19:11-13

This would be an example of why God doesn't send natural disasters. But, to be more specific, these verses apply to Elijah the prophet of God. He was highly esteemed of God. Judgment was not for Elijah. I believe God was simply helping Elijah to not be afraid of this world and all its wicked threats.

Scripture also supports the explanation of natural disasters as being the judgment of God. If you don't believe that, just read the Book of Revelation. Granted, we would have to know for sure that judgment has come, because it's widely agreed that we live in the dispensation of Grace. However, it's also clear that we're approaching the end of the age. We just had a Solar Eclipse, which has often been seen as a sign of possible judgment. Is it a coincidence that the hurricane of all hurricanes is about to hit America during the 40 days between a Solar Eclipse and the Day of Atonement?

Is Pope Francis the False Prophet of Revelation?

Pope Francis has made a number of decisions that conservative Catholics see as being against traditional Catholic doctrine. The Pope is a left wing globalist. Canon lawyers and theologians for the Vatican hosted a conference in Paris this past March to discuss “how to depose a heretical pope”? (

If you're Roman Catholic, you need to stay informed concerning both the decisions that Pope Francis makes and what the bible says about the last days False Prophet.

Francis of Assisi, who is one of my favorite Christians ever, wrote this concerning the last Pope: "At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error and death.…for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer."

I saw another beast coming up out of the earth. He had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke like a dragon. He exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence. He makes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose fatal wound was healed. He performs great signs, even making fire come down out of the sky to the earth in the sight of people. He deceives my own people who dwell on the earth because of the signs he was granted to do in front of the beast; saying to those who dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast who had the sword wound and lived. It was given to him to give breath to it, to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause as many as wouldn’t worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, the small and the great, the rich and the poor, and the free and the slave, to be given marks on their right hands, or on their foreheads; and that no one would be able to buy or to sell, unless he has that mark, the name of the beast or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. He who has understanding, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is six hundred sixty-six. - Revelation 13:11-18

False accusations of President Trump

The left keeps fomenting despicable lies about President Trump in order to incite civil war in America. At yesterday's rally in Phoenix, Arizona, professional agitators showed up to disrupt the peace. Someone, or a number of people brought a big-blow up doll of President Trump, depicting him as a member of the KKK. If you have discernment of right and wrong, you'll know how wrong this accusation is. President Trump has displayed a love for all races over and over again through his words and actions, but the left has no discernment of God's ways and so they continue to make wicked accusations.

Proverbs 25:18 shows the violent nature associated with those who falsely accuse.

Like a club or a sword or a sharp arrow is one who gives false testimony against a neighbor. - Proverbs 25:18

Mockers are desperate to belittle the President

It never ceases to amaze me how the left and Godless people keep trying to belittle President Trump. Yesterday, during the Solar Eclipse, President Trump looked at the sun without those ridiculous sun-glasses on and the media is now trying to make him look like an idiot. It's deplorable how Godless people disrespect a man who, at the age of 71, decided to drain the swamp of American politics, with his own money.

I looked at the sun without those ridiculous sun-glasses on as well. My eyes are doing fine and I will not have any damage to my eyes. I would like to see the proof that looking at a Solar Eclipse is such a horrible thing to do. Just because NASA says you shouldn't do it, doesn't mean they're right. In fact, much of what NASA says is a lie anyway, so why trust them.

In this last hour, filled with mockers, we need to have discernment from the Spirit of God to know what is right and what is wrong.

Drive out the mocker, and strife will go out; yes, quarrels and insults will stop. - Proverbs 22:10

Liberty for the creation

The signs that God gives in the heavens don't point to a definite conclusion. Today's sign of a Solar Eclipse could mean judgment or mercy, depending on the behavior of God's people over the coming months. Let us get our houses in order and be vigilant concerning prayer for America, President Trump, our families, Israel and the world. I'm interested in gematria, which is the study of biblical numbers, so I will be focusing my prayer in a positive way, as Romans 8:21 tells us. (Today is 8/21)

...that the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of decay into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. - Romans 8:21

Who should I minister to?

Although the Lord loves everyone, not everyone is ready to receive. I've learned this through the experience of speaking to thousands and thousands of people one on one over the past 9 years. This is why it's important to discern what the Lord is doing. We want to get involved in what the Lord is doing because that is what will be fruitful.

He who corrects a mocker invites insult. He who reproves a wicked man invites abuse. Don’t reprove a scoffer, lest he hate you. Reprove a wise man, and he will love you. - Proverbs 8:7-8

Antifa (Anti-Fascists) are not Christians

Yesterday I wrote about how White Supremacists and Neo-Nazi's are not Christian, even if they claim to be. Today I want to make the point that the Anti-Fascists (antifa) are not Christian either, although they seemingly oppose the hate and bigotry of White Supremacists and Neo-Nazi's. When President Trump denounced both sides of the Charlottesville situation, he wasn't supporting White Supremacists and Neo-Nazi's, as many liberals claim he was. The evidence is very clear how both sides are exhibiting behavior that is not Christian behavior. Video of the situation shows both the White Supremacists and the Anti-Fascists using carnal weapons to hurt people.

For though we walk in the flesh, we don’t wage war according to the flesh; for the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but mighty before God to the throwing down of strongholds  -2Corinthians 10:3-4

White Supremacists are not Christians

I wouldn't call white supremacists or neo-nazi's far-right, but rather, far-left. These groups are not conservative and they certainly don't represent accurate Christian theology. Many of them would call themselves Christians, but that means nothing. Someone can say they're Christian until they're blue in the face, but that doesn't make them Christian.

Now I beg you, brothers, look out for those who are causing the divisions and occasions of stumbling, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and turn away from them. For those who are such don’t serve our Lord, Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by their smooth and flattering speech, they deceive the hearts of the innocent. - Romans 16:17-18

The Fragrance of Life

Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you into all that the Lord has for you. This world operates from a system that decays. The world will make you labor and toil and then try and steal what's yours. The Kingdom of Heaven doesn't work like that. The Holy Spirit is constantly looking to invite Jesus into your daily walk, so that what's produced will draw people to Jesus. Fruit that will last.

Awake, O north wind and come, wind of the south; Make my garden breathe out fragrance. Let its spices be wafted abroad. May my beloved come into his garden and eat its choice fruits!” - Song of Solomon 4:16

How to develop a love for God

Many believers want to know what to do in order to develop a relationship with the Lord. There are any number of scripture verses that can help you. Here are four verses from Psalm 105. Put this into action and you'll see great progress.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, call upon His name; Make known His deeds among the peoples. Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; Speak of all His wonders. Glory in His holy name; Let the heart of those who seek the Lord be glad. Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face continually. - Psalm 105:1-4

A spirit empowers you

Many people don't recognize the impact of the spirit realm. All people have a spirit sent from God that gives life at conception. Because of the sin nature, that spirit is dead. Not dead in the sense that it doesn't have the ability to keep our heart beating, but dead in the sense that we are separated from God because of sin. When Paul was in Athens, he was talking to unbelievers when he said that God gives us life and breath and the ability to have our being.

...for in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we also are His children.’ - Acts 17:28

An encounter with God will change you

Many people who say they believe in Jesus Christ are really believing in what he taught. They're believing in the doctrine of Jesus. That's a great start, but there's much more. Knowing Him through an encounter, will change your life and bring you to the place of truly recognizing your spiritual condition. Job was an amazing man on the earth and after his severe trials, he came to understand both God and himself.

“I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, But now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, And repent in dust and ashes.” - Job 42:5-6

All things work together for good...

Wow! What a day we had with Cardboard Box Church. I don't refer to healing miracles, but rather to persecution. Without getting into too many details, the trouble brought the police who told us we couldn't do this (Cardboard Box Church) legally and if we've been doing it without the police stopping us, it's because certain officers didn't fully know the ordinances. Long story short, we were directed to an organization in town that showed us how to do this legally and in a better location. What the devil meant for trouble, the Lord turned around for good.

We know that all things work together for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to his purpose. - Romans 8:28

Remaining in Him

Although salvation is a work of God and not of ourselves, it's important to remember our role in believing. When someone hears the gospel message clearly and receives Christ, that person is coming into agreement with the terms of the covenant. The terms of the covenant includes, continuing to believe just as from the beginning.

As for you, let that abide in you which you heard from the beginning. If what you heard from the beginning abides in you, you also will abide in the Son and in the Father. - 1John 2:24

Is there correction in grace?

The grace of God builds us up and encourages us. We're taught to grow in grace, but grace without reproof is no grace at all.

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, - Titus 2:11-12

Rightly dividing the word

Many Christians take scripture out of context. For instance, Isaiah 55:8 says,

"For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD.

Because of this verse, people think it's not possible to figure out God, but they fail to see the context of that verse, which shows us that the Lord is speaking about the wicked man. We can see this clearly by what verse 7 says.

Let the wicked forsake his way And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the LORD, And He will have compassion on him, And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

However, the Christian is a new creation. We have the mind of Christ, who is God.

For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he will instruct him. But we have the mind of Christ. - 1Corinthians 2:16 

Thursday, August 3, 2017


All of us stumble in different ways. If we know Jesus Christ, we'll feel grieved when we stumble (sin).  I feel bad when I stumble, especially when I mess up in a way that I know I've been victorious in. The scripture has a simple way of helping us to not stumble. It's through love.

He who loves his brother remains in the light, and there is no occasion for stumbling in him. - 1John 2:10

The mystery of God's power

After almost 9 years of experiencing the power of the Holy Spirit stirring and flowing everyday, I still can't explain to you how it works. I just know it does.

But we have this treasure in clay vessels, that the exceeding greatness of the power may be of God, and not from ourselves. - 2Corinthians 4:7

Parting ways

Sometimes we need to part ways with those who are not part of God's plan for our lives. The Lord has a good plan for us, but if we have people in our lives that are just not part of what the Lord is doing through us, we need to pull away. This doesn't mean certain people around us are from the devil. It just means God is very precise in all that He does.

The Lord said to Abram after Lot had parted from him, "Look around from where you are, to the north and south, to the east and west. All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. - Genesis 13:14-15
