Isaiah 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.
Job 22:21 "Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you.
These aren’t just for you, I need to be reminded every day…
The main question being “WHAT is going on!?” … we know the answer of course, there is warring for souls in the heavenlies and all around us, but the question still begs to be asked.
The recent news of the man who killed his wife and 5 children in LA has been weighing on me all day…even though it’s no longer ‘news’.
Money problems are causing people to do insane things lately… it’s tragic, and I’m afraid it’s just the beginning. Tens of thousands of people were laid off just yesterday by Seattle headquartered companies; Boeing 20,000, Starbucks 6,000 , Microsoft 5,000,
For far too long too many people have focused all of their attention on chasing money instead of on chasing God, and when the money is gone their foundation is gone so their perception of the world falls apart, leaving nothing for them to stand on…hopeless and falling.
But our foundation is the Rock who never changes.
The word “FOUNDATION” is now stuck in my mind, compelling a concordance search of course…
In the LORD I take refuge. How then can you say to me: "Flee like a bird to your mountain.
For look, the wicked bend their bows; they set their arrows against the strings to shoot from the shadows at the upright in heart.
When the foundations are being destroyed, what can the righteous do?"
The LORD is in his holy temple; the LORD is on his heavenly throne. He observes the sons of men; his eyes examine them.
The LORD examines the righteous, but the wicked and those who love violence his soul hates.
On the wicked he will rain fiery coals and burning sulfur; a scorching wind will be their lot.
For the LORD is righteous, he loves justice; upright men will see his face.
Isaiah 28:16 So this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "See, I lay a stone in Zion, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed.
Isaiah 33 (wow…what an amazing vision of things to come)
Isaiah 33:6 He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the LORD is the key to this treasure…Your eyes will see the king in his beauty and view a land that stretches afar…
Matthew 7:25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
1 Corinthians 3:11-15 For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If any man builds on this foundation using gold, silver, costly stones, wood, hay or straw, his work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each man's work. If what he has built survives, he will receive his reward. If it is burned up, he will suffer loss; he himself will be saved, but only as one escaping through the flames.
1 Timothy 6:17-19 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
2 Timothy 2:19 …God's solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: "The Lord knows those who are his, and, "Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness."
Revelation 21 Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. 3And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them…The wall of the city had twelve foundations, and on them were the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb…
America mourns for the 7 brave Space Shuttle Columbia astronauts who died this morning, 40 miles high in the skies over Texas. Even the national news has mentioned that the Internet is already buzzing with conspiracy theories of terrorism since this particular flight included Israel’s first astronaut ever, Ilan Ramon. I don’t have any conspiracy theory to offer, but if there is any prophetic significance to this tragedy, I’d have to say that it might be ‘The USA and Israel are going down in flames over Palestine‘. Why would I say something like that? It may be too much for coincidence that this happened over Palestine, Texas. The city which is reported to have been hit by most of the debris is Nacodoches, but debris is falling in Palestine Texas as well, only 67 miles from Nacodoches. Just last Tuesday night, President Bush said during his State of the Union Address, “In the Middle East, we will continue to seek peace between a secure Israel and a democratic Palestine.” This may sound like a noble cause, but giving away the Promised Land to Israel’s murderous enemies is not part of God’s plan. All efforts by the United States to help establish a Palestinian State within Israel should be abandoned immediately. Regardless of the United State’s role in the upcoming Peace Treaty offered by the coming Antichrist, God’s Will will be done.

The sun is setting as I take advantage of a quiet Sunday to make some long overdue updates to the front page. It seems that the sun is setting on this era as well, that is, the age of the Church is drawing to a close. There’s so much on my mind. Its the warmest January that I can remember, yet in Florida the oranges are freezing. In recent weeks thousands of sailors and soldiers have left port, headed for Iraq. The liberal media rants on about how unpopular the idea of war is, that President Bush’s poll ratings are dropping, that many foreign governments will not join the United States led coalition. The Bible says that God appoints our nation’s leaders. So nobody should question that President Bush has been appointed as leader of the United States for a time such as this. Saddam Hussein is going to be dealt with for the last time. I really can’t bring myself to believe that the reasons behind the President’s decision are as shallow as some say. He hardly seems the type who feels the United States must use force to make a point or demonstrate our power. No, its more likely that his reasons run much deeper. Do any of the liberals ever consider that our country’s leaders have access to intelligence about Iraq (and other countries) that could not possibly be shared with the public? Has anyone considered that we might also be honoring a treaty to protect Israel from those who hate God and abhor peace? I’m not the least bit excited about this upcoming war, but I’m not the least bit opposed to it either. If Saddam Hussein is close to obtaining or creating a nuclear weapon, then he has to be stopped now, end of story.
The number of incoming questions and remarks from this web site has been increasing lately. This suggests to me that people are looking for answers. Some people might be experiencing dread that a world war could result from our foray into the Middle East, after all, Armageddon is the valley of Meggido in Israel. Put your trust in God, that despite what happens, He is still in control.
As if the problem in Iraq wasn’t enough, North Korea is becoming rather belligerent. I’ve wondered if Kim Jong II might be planning to invade South Korea when the United States is in the thick of it with Iraq.
Well, as of a few days ago its been reported that President Bush has made it clear that under two specific scenarios the United States will use nuclear weapons in Iraq if need be. The first being if we are attacked with chemical or biological agents, the second being if we need to destroy an undergound fortifed target that conventional weapons would be useless against.
