A Spiritual Awakening

Reading Daniel 7 - 9 today I once again noticed the prayer of Daniel.  A prayer of repentance; a prayer of recognition of the holiness and righteousness of God.  Though the prayer is for the sins of Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem it seems very powerful even for the Christian of 2018. I share Daniel's prayer … Continue reading A Spiritual Awakening

When Mourning for Sin Does Not Come

"Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy tears run down. Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead, bind the tire of thine head upon thee, … Continue reading When Mourning for Sin Does Not Come

God is not our spare tire. Hear the word of the LORD... "And it came to pass … Continue reading I Will Not Be Enquired of by You
