Radio Show Schedule Update

As mentioned on the last radio shows, there will be a break of 2 or 3 weeks taken.  Should be back no later than the middle of March, quite possibly sooner.

Give Us Gifts

“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”  Romans 6:23   “For by grace you are saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;  not of works, that no one should boast.”  Ephesians 2:8-9   “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”  John 3:16-17   Today was the day for a needed oil change in my vehicle.  I figured the wait would probably be quite less than normal, as it was President’s Day and I was right.  As I waited for them to complete the oil change they had Sirius XM on playing classic rock music.  A Gun’s ‘n’ Roses song played and then the DJ got on the air, saying how she wished that some of these types of bands would make just one or two more hit songs, that they would give us gifts.    From a worldly perspective, people who listen to these classic hits, as there have been many whom I worked with in the past who jam to them, probably do consider them to be gifts.  Yet just what type of gift is it really?   “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.  For everyone who asks receives, and he who...

Serving Jesus

“Behold, is it not of Jehovah of Hosts that the people labor only to feed the fire, and nations weary themselves only for vanity.”  Habakkuk 2:13   “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest unto your souls.  For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”  Matthew 11:28-30   Most working age Americans, do just that, they work.  The jobs vary in tasks to whatever their employment requires, but by being a worker you are serving others.  People serve someone, but why?   I pondered this the other day while working.  Of what advantage is it to diligently serve others working at jobs, but not be serving Jesus?  To what avail is it to gain personal possessions, without gaining Salvation?   “Then Jesus said to His disciples, If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.  For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it.  For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?”  Matthew 16:24-26   “For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it.  For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole...

Occupiers

“A good tree is not able to produce evil fruit, nor is a corrupt tree able to produce excellent fruit.  Every tree that does not produce excellent fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  Therefore from their fruits you will know them.”  Matthew 7:18-20   “Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets.”  Matthew 7:12   The other day I happened upon a film regarding a hero in World War 2 and the battle of Normandy.  While I didn’t have sufficient time to complete the film, just the fifteen minutes or so that I was able to watch was enough to remind myself of our role in world politics and conflicts as a nation.   Watching the young men training to be sent off to a parachute squadron and knowing that generation well, certainly the morals of our young soldiers and our current generation is not anywhere comparable to what our nation was like during the 1930’s and 40’s.  This is not to say that our nation was a Christian nation back then, but rather our laws, education system, leaders and military followed much of the God fearing morality that one would expect of a moral nation.   American soldiers liberated much of Europe and conquered the Japanese in the south Pacific.  While one can always find stories to the contrary, by and large our troops were well respected in the countries to which they invaded enemy territory.  Back then, in contrast to the Soviet troops who often were rampant in their behavior.  In...

The End is Coming

“Come near, you nations, to hear; and you people, pay attention; let the earth hear, and its fullness; the world, and all its offspring.  For the wrath of Jehovah is upon all nations, and His fury upon all their armies. He has utterly destroyed them, He has delivered them to the slaughter.  Also their slain shall be thrown out, and their stench shall come up out of their corpses, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.  And all the host of the heavens shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled up like a scroll; and all their host shall wither, as a leaf withers off the vine, and as fruit falling from the fig tree.  For My sword is drenched in the heavens. Behold, it shall come down upon Edom, and upon the people of My curse, for judgment.  The sword of Jehovah is filled with blood; it is made fat with fatness, with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams; for Jehovah has a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.  And the oryx shall come down with them, and the young bulls with the mighty; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.  For it is the day of Jehovah’s vengeance, the year of retribution for the strife against Zion.  And its streams shall be turned into pitch, and its dust into brimstone, and its land shall become burning pitch.  It shall not be quenched night or day; its smoke shall ascend forever.  From...
