Manifesto For The United States of America

(NOTE: Unlike many contemporary “doomsday deceivers” and false prophets prophesying imminent doom for the USA, I wrote this positive manifesto to give hope and promise for a bright future for this “land that I love…) I solemnly proclaim and declare to all who have ears to hear, eyes to see, and understanding to comprehend thatContinue reading “Manifesto For The United States of America”

Emmanuel…God With You!

Emmanuel… To me, it’s a musical-sounding word that evokes many memories around Christmas time each year.  Emmanuel is a word used often during the Christmas season—in sermons and in music.  It’s a popular name for churches, too; my wife and I attended Emmanuel Church for a few years.  In some areas of the world, parentsContinue reading “Emmanuel…God With You!”

Joy Unspeakable!

Some people just never seem to have any authentic joy in their lives.  Oh, they might experience happiness, but joy and happiness aren’t the same.  Some people just seem to fret all the time about the negative, “dark” aspects of life, and never seem to find God’s true joy for their lives.  Are YOU oneContinue reading “Joy Unspeakable!”

Eternity In My Heart

The Bible teaches that God has “placed eternity” in the heart of every human being!  That sounds like a nice religious sentiment—even sort of poetic, but what does it really mean?  A good place to begin in answering that question is to define some words and terms:  God, eternity, heart, etc. Here we go…  OfContinue reading “Eternity In My Heart”

The Christmas Story

          The following is a contemporary English version of the Bible’s Christmas story, designed to be read aloud (serially or at one sitting) to children of all ages during the Christmas season.

4 Views: Who Has the Final Word?

You may not want to hear it. You may not believe me. But I want to tell you an astonishing truth right up front: not all Jesus believers on this planet believe exactly the same as you do, but they’re still believers in Jesus! I know, I know . . . that’s a real shockContinue reading “4 Views: Who Has the Final Word?”

Salvation

Salvation is a concept many people don’t understand. It’s a word that remains a mystery to many. For many people, it’s an old-fashioned term—this thing known as “salvation” or being “saved.” Why salvation at all? What do people need saved from? Obviously no one needs saved unless they’re in some kind of peril. Many wouldContinue reading “Salvation”

“Good” Good News vs “Bad” Good News

We’ve all seen little religious leaflets someone leaves at our front doors or in restaurant bathrooms; or, from time to time we see them being blown about on downtown sidewalks on a windy day. Sure you’ve seen them: the kind a zealous religious person hands to you as you round a street corner or youContinue reading ““Good” Good News vs “Bad” Good News”

Shang Ti and Sinim

During my childhood years, my family lived in one of the three “Atomic Bomb Cities” in the United States during World War II. It was a lazy summer afternoon in one of those cities, Oak Ridge, Tennessee. I was 5 or 6 years old, digging a hole in our back yard with a little shovel,Continue reading “Shang Ti and Sinim”

My Visit To Heaven

This is not one of my teachings.  Its an advertisement for one of my books. On March 6, 2018, I was invited to visit Heaven.  I wrote about that in a book titled Heaven:  Our Home Sweet Homeland. You can purchase my book at billsbooks.org or at amazon.com as an e-book, or in softcover, or hardcover. Here’s what God askedContinue reading “My Visit To Heaven”
