Emergency!

“Who is this who comes from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah, this One adorned in His apparel, flexing His great strength? I who speak in righteousness, mighty to save.  Why is Your apparel red, and Your garments like one who treads in the winepress?  I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the peoples there was no one with Me; for I tread them in My anger and trample them in My fury, and their blood is sprinkled on My garments, and I have stained all My apparel.  For the day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My redeemed has come.  And I looked, and there was no one to help; and I wondered that there was no one to uphold; therefore My own arm has given victory for Me; and My fury sustained Me.  And I will tread down the people in My anger, and make them drunk in My fury, and I will bring down their blood to the earth.  I will mention the lovingkindnesses of Jehovah, the praises of Jehovah, according to all that Jehovah has bestowed upon us, and the great goodness toward the house of Israel which He has bestowed upon them according to His mercies, and according to the multitude of His lovingkindnesses.  For He said, Surely they are My people, children that will not lie; so He was their Savior.  In all their affliction He was afflicted, and the Angel of His Presence saved them; in His love and in His pity He redeemed them; and He bore them, and carried them all the days of old....

Bad Seeds

“The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.  And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.  And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth: And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.  And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them: But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.  Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.  And the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables?  He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.  For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.  Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.  And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and...

What Jesus did on the Cross

“Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?  For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.  He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.  Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.  But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.  All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.  He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.  He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken.  And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased the...

Will They Worry?

“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”  Matthew 10:28   There were a lot of people who were worried about COVID, some still are.  While the purpose here is not to tell people what precautions to take or not to take, there are some who are very fearful.   While going grocery shopping there is this friendly clerk at a local supermarket who wears a P100 mask, the kind with filters.  Certainly the fear of COVID is there, as she still wears it and quite honestly I feel sorry for her.    There were those who fanned the flames of fear towards our society, in many cases grossly overexagerrating just how dangerous COVID was to the average person who was not old, nor with health problems.  So why is it possible for such fear-mongering to cause some to take extraordinary precautions?    “And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.”  Hebrews 2:15   Simple, there is a fear of death.  While I am certain that there are some who would claim that they fear nothing, they do not fear death, they don’t care, and certainly there are those sorts, yet I would ask a question regarding those who have no fear of death:   Do you believe God?  Do you believe His Word the Bible?  Do you believe there is a Heaven and there is a Hell?    Just today I had seen a survey taken that 8...

New Book & Update

There will be a new book, Lord willing, The End for Spanish speakers.  The book will be more condensed than the English version, but nonetheless I hope to have this project done prior to May.  With the copyright on the Spanish version of the Bible that I am using Reina Valera (1960), I actually have to switch it all over to the 1909 version, which is in the public domain.    Also the Repent! book should be updated to reflect using only the KJV.  A good portion of that work is already done just by switching The End book to KJV.  As far as all of the other writings, they will be left ‘as is’ and not switched over to KJV.    The original non-KJV version will still be...
