Dear God, Thank You!

http://gratisography.com/pictures/86_1.jpgPsalm 95:1-3  Oh come, let us sing to the Lord!  Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.  Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving;  Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms.  For the Lord is the great God, And the great King above all gods.”

Dear Readers,  Grace, love, peace and joy unto you, my beautiful brothers and sisters.  To all my American readers, Happy Thanksgiving.  Though I am serving an unjust life sentence for crimes that I did not commit, and though I have been in solitary confinement for four months now; I am never-the-less thankful.  I have so much to be grateful for… my salvation, my family, my peace, my joy, et cetera, et cetera.  This year, I am especially thankful for two of my very best friends, Tom and Terry Shuford.  They are both amazing people, though they are too humble to realize that themselves.  God has done so much for me, not the least of which was putting Tom and Terry in my life.  I am so thankful for them, Father.  Praise Your Name, Lord!

I first met my buddy, Tom, in April of 2014, just before my trial started.  Terry wrote me letters back then and she began visiting me a few months later.  That was a very stressful time in my life.  If it were not for the Lord blessing me with Tom and Terry, as well as my good friend, Deborah, I don’t know how I would have made it this far.  The Lord did most of the work, but their support was and is crucial to my stability.   (more…)

The Comforter Of The Lord

https://www.pexels.com/photo/light-man-hope-looking-up-6842/John 14:25-26  “These things I have spoken to you while being present with you.  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.”

Dear Readers,  Peace, love and joy unto you, my brothers and sisters.  I want to talk to you about a ghost.  I’m not talking about haunted houses or Poltergeist.  Nor am I referring to Casper the friendly ghost.  I am talking about the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth, the Holy Ghost.  It is that Spirit which leads us and guides us.  It is that Spirit that helps us unravel the meaning of the scriptures and reveals the truth to us.  That is, if we are receptive to it.  It is then and only then that the Spirit can do God’s work in and through us.  There are times when I read the scriptures and suddenly warm tingly shivers run through my body, as if an electrical current were flowing in me.  That is the Spirit.  Your conscience is a manifestation of the Spirit.  Your joy, your peace, the true love you feel are all manifestations of the Spirit.  I love the feeling of the Spirit.  It courses through my veins and electrifies my soul.  I feel so in tune with God, nature and my fellow Christians.  The sense of peace and joy I get is unexplainable.

Wage Peace, Not War

https://www.pexels.com/photo/german-love-padlock-4662/Luke 1:77-79  To give knowledge of salvation to His people by the remission of their sins, through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Dayspring from on high has visited us; To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.”

Dear Readers, May the peace of Christ be ever upon you.  I want to tell all of you, everyone who reads my posts, that I love you in the name of Jesus.  Praise His Name!  Shout Hallelujah!  When I say, “everyone”, I mean even those who hate and despise me.  Even those who return evil for good, and especially those who mean me harm, the ones who think of me as  their enemy and wish to take down this site.  I want you to know that I love you most of all.  Even the M.D.O.C. and the prison administration, who have begun to threaten me weekly, and who only last Friday told me that I will remain in solitary confinement until I stop writing.  I love you!  That love has been hard won within my spirit.  Like any normal human being, my first thoughts upon being attacked are often those of indignation.  But, like any true Christian, the love of my Lord Jesus Christ and His Spirit which dwells within me has led me to the ways of peace and forgiveness.

Not Of This World

https://www.pexels.com/photo/sky-lights-space-dark-2154/I Corinthians 2:12   Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.”

Dear Readers,  Greetings, blessings and grace to you, my brothers and sisters.  I would like to speak to you about things and people which are not of this world.  Now, I’m not talking about little green men or martians with ray guns; Nor am I speaking of alien abductions.  This is not about close encounters.  No, sir.  I want to talk to you about things which are supernatural.  Things like the love of Christ, the grace of God, true salvation and the Holy Spirit.  I want to talk about joy, peace and love – the kind which is completely out of the realm of understanding to an unsaved person.  Romans 12:2 says, “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”  Now, it is important to note in this verse, that Paul [the author] is not speaking of our beautiful planet earth per se; Nor is he suggesting that we not get along with the people on it.  What he is talking about is the sinful nature of this world; the corruption which has taken over the vast majority of this world.  It is the evil, greedy, lustful temptations of this world that lead men and women to darkness.  The sinful nature of this world has become as a bottomless pit, a black hole, an evil abyss which swallows non-believers whole.  Be you not conformed to it.  Be not given to its temptations.  Beware the sinful wishes of this world; For they will devour you.
