slow

My dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both letters to stir up your sincere understanding with a reminder. 2 I want you to recall what the holy prophets foretold as well as what the Lord and savior commanded through your apostles. 3 Most important, know this: in the last days scoffers willContinue reading “slow”

Slow

8 Don’t let it escape your notice, dear friends, that with the Lord a single day is like a thousand years and a thousand years are like a single day. 9 The Lord isn’t slow to keep his promise, as some think of slowness, but he is patient toward you, not wanting anyone to perish but all toContinue reading “Slow”

Songs in the Temple

25Now there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; this man was righteous and devout, looking forward to the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit rested on him. 26It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. 27Guided by theContinue reading “Songs in the Temple”

Alle…

Alle… Oops. Hold on… As you are reading this article it is still Lent. But it is April and Spring and it should be Easter! And yes that celebration is coming. This year Easter is almost as late as it can be. The latest Easter can be is April 25. We are in that alreadyContinue reading “Alle…”

Waiting and watching

The oracle that the prophet Habakkuk saw. O Lord, how long shall I cry for help, and you will not listen? Or cry to you “Violence!” and you will not save? Why do you make me see wrong-doing and look at trouble? Destruction and violence are before me; strife and contention arise. So the law becomes slack and justiceContinue reading “Waiting and watching”

Return

Blow the trumpet in Zion; sound the alarm on my holy mountain! Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble, for the day of the LORD is coming, it is near—a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness! Like blackness spread upon the mountains a great and powerful army comes;Continue reading “Return”

While I’m Waiting

I have been waiting on something to happen for quite a while now. And it seems like I have done everything right and just still nothing happens. We get close to being able to move on, but something happens and we start over again. In times like these it would be real easy to giveContinue reading “While I’m Waiting”

Scattered

Now on that day a great persecution began against the church in Jerusalem, and all except the apostles were forced to scatter throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria. Some devout men buried Stephen and made loud lamentation over him. But Saul was trying to destroy the church; entering one house after another, he draggedContinue reading “Scattered”
