Solomon’s Porch: Preamble

He was not one given to the overly dramatic except that one time when instead of castigating the woman caught in adultery he bowed his head and scribbled in the sand like a child or that other time when he spat into mud and used the mix to restore a blind man’s sight. Disclaimer: I am not an authority on these issues. I am operating with the mind of Christ and despite my own fickle and fragmental knowledge at times I trust that the Spirit of Christ will reveal to you the substance in this shadowy post. Please allow Grace to express itself in you. Special thanks to JMD for spurring me to write, to Tomi of Arike’s Art for speaking up and TJ for just being TJ. John 17 – New King James Version (NKJV): Jesus Prays for Himself 1. Jesus spoke these words, lifted up His eyes to heaven, and said: “Father, the hour has come. Glorify Your

HAVE YOU READ MY BOOK? COOKIES WITH CHRIST! CLICK THE LINK http://goo.gl/OyMvAm Enjoy the piece… It blows my mind that we who were once puny worms in the devil’s trophy case have been translated majestically to the place of dominion where our garish rags of self-righteousness are torn away and we are clothed with the righteousness COMMENTARY ON PSALM 132:9 and ISAIAH 51:6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens, look at the earth beneath; the heavens will vanish like smoke, the earth will wear out like a garment and its inhabitants die like flies. But my salvation will last forever, my righteousness will never fail. There are fabrics in heaven. Unlike the earthly attires which are susceptible to rot, wear and tear, these garments have eternal value. They are sewn from the blood of the lamb. These are the fabrics of faith, love and hope. They are the ones that Christ weaved on the cross at Calvary. God makes bold

Random #1

I have never really done a random post before. Let me try my hand on this Why I write? Well I want to become famous. I want people to ‘quote’ me. I want to walk down the street and get chased by adoring ‘female’ fans. I would be lying if I said I didn’t want all that. My ‘flesh’ has desires of its own but gladly the ME in me wants more. He longs to see lives changed. He longs to see light break out on the inside of you my dear reader. There are certain expressions that I have come to see are unique to me and I pray every day that those expressions evoke a desire and stir a longing to return to the wholeness of the Word and Wisdom of God in you. Perhaps along the way I will write that book or a series of songs that will eventually make me world-famous. Why Grace? I once

The Traveler

When I first put my hand down to write I imagined that He would speak to me softly: in soft tones and gentle timbres discharging the words like the slow trickle of a quiet stream. Picking my pen and dusting the cobwebs that had gathered in my mind, I conceived a number of stories that would delight you and take you on that long-awaited journey through vistas replete with a myriad of beautiful creatures and adventure. I imagined as a writer is wont to that every tale would give off a graceful vibe that would entertain the mind and quiet the raging of your soul. But He rejected them refusing to allow me venture on a quest to impress you. Then He spoke. His words raged like the wind with fiery outbursts interspersed within. Just as thunder His voice boomed large and loud from within me quizzing my every move. He riddled me with a barrage of questions. You would

Confession, Conviction, Confusion!

Originally posted on Escape to Reality:
Did Jesus sneak out of heaven against His Father’s wishes to come and die for our sins? Did He distract the Holy Spirit then slip away on His own initiative to shed His blood for our forgiveness? Of course not! Yet judging by some of the comments I get on this site, it’s clear that some think that God the Son and God the Father are playing a good cop-bad cop routine with humanity. God the Father is angry with us on account of our sin, but Jesus stands between us protecting us from His Father’s wrath. What’s wrong with this picture? Everything! It suggests that God the Son and God the Father have different natures, that One loves us unconditionally, but the other can’t see past our sin. Even if you don’t know your Bible you can probably see how ridiculous this is. Hebrews 1:3 tells us that Jesus is the “exact representation”…
