Druids, Celts, and Jesus

Here’s a story about God and the Celts that’s been passed down by word-of-mouth for centuries.                  “Clouds boiled up to cover the sky and the sound of a mighty wind filled all the world.  And though it was bright midday, the heavens grew dark as twilight after the sun has set.  Not the slightest breathContinue reading “Druids, Celts, and Jesus”

City of Mystery

Allegory:  noun.  “a story used for teaching, in which people, things, and happenings have a hidden or symbolic meaning.” In a faraway land laden with abundant peace and joy, and cloaked in wondrous mystery, a fair and lovely city nestles serenely and securely among the foothills of a nearby high and lofty mountain.  This cityContinue reading “City of Mystery”

Angel Visit

NOTE: Recently, the following report appeared on my home-office FAX machine. Obviously, it appeared there by mistake; we have been unable to trace its source, and our FAX machine was not malfunctioning at the time. Doubtless the mysterious report was not intended for human eyes, but because of its startling contents, I am reproducing itContinue reading “Angel Visit”

Acres of Diamonds

The year was 1870. In Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Russell Conwell, pastor of Grace Baptist Church, presented a lecture he titled “Acres of Diamonds.” It struck a responsive chord in the hearts of his audience, and in years to come he presented the same lecture over 6,000 more times in scores of different settings, ranging from smallContinue reading “Acres of Diamonds”

After all, haven’t his children prayed for centuries for his will to be done on earth as it is in heaven? Yes, this is a glorious time in which he is working in the Church asContinue reading “The Harness of the Lord”

Hidden Scroll

The sun began to slip below the far horizon, it’s many-hued rays fanned out across the darkening sky. Turning and gazing back from the high, wind-swept, rocky promontory where they paused momentarily, the six dust-covered, weary travelers could see myriads of scattered spots of refracted sunlight sparkling like liquid diamonds on the waves of theContinue reading “Hidden Scroll”

Imagine That

I’m going to teach you a quick lesson in human makeup. God created humans as three-part beings, somewhat fashioned after his three-part being–The Trinity, Father, Son and Spirit–3 persons, yet one God; one God, yet 3 persons. Humans are created with a spirit, a soul, and a body. Think of a bullseye or a targetContinue reading “Imagine That”

Religious Dogma

This teaching is simply some very basic information from various extra-biblical (but not non-biblical, or anti-biblical!) resources for those people who believe the biblical concept of apokatastasis (as defined a few paragraphs later).  Believe it or not, this lengthy writing really is a simple listing of only about 25 resources, BUT God has asked meContinue reading “Religious Dogma”
