ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

The Jordan River’s Ready

 
Asked if I am certain
 Christ Jesus will return…
I become much more convinced
With each new day concern.
 
Has anyone not noticed
The shape this world is in?
Am I the only one to see
It wink its eyes at sin?
 
Not only has the government
Kicked Jesus in the pants…
But men who preach the gospel
Seem to grasp at every chance.
 
The pulpit, once a reverenced place,
Where Godly preachers stood
Is becoming just a sounding board
For a one world brotherhood.
 
Yes, we hear sermons but they all
Encourage us to merge
With other world religions and
There seems to be an urge
 
To discourage Christianity
In its pure and simple form…
For it’s been pointed out that it
Will cause our children harm.
 
Not everyone’s a Christian
Is the argument these days…
And we’re offending others
With our Ten Commandment ways.
 
So schools become a shooting zone
But that’s the new routine…
For teaching kids “Thou shalt not kill”
Is politically obscene.
 
World News will show the Middle East
In its usual upheaval…
The hate and envy doesn’t cease
And the skies explode with evil.
 
The first blood moon is due this year…
Is this a sign for certain?
Will the sky split open like a scroll
As God rolls back the curtain?
 
I don’t have all the answers…
But this one thing I know…
Jesus Christ will soon return….
Because my Bible tells me so.
 
The Jordan River’s ready…
It’s shores are strewn with clover…
It’s time for making plans to leave…
It’s time for crossing over.

Joshua 3:17
The priests who carried the ark of the covenant
 of the Lord stopped in the middle of the Jordan
 and stood on dry ground, while all Israel passed
 by until the whole nation had completed the
 crossing on dry ground.
 
Hebrews 13:6
"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid."

1 John 5:11
  - And this is the record, that God hath given
 to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
