  • Jesus Christ and the Rapture

    Someday soon Jesus Christ is going to return for His bride – the church. To clarify the church represents all believers who are otherwise called Christians. Imagine how dark this world is going to be when all the lights of the world leave. It’s a scary thought, so we need to focus on sharing the love of Jesus before time runs out. We are not given the exact date of God’s return, but many places are found in the Bible that give us signs indicating that it is imminent. Directly after Jesus Christ returns for His church...
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed

    I thought that would be an appropriate title to today’s thought of the day. From personal experience I can testify that this is more then true. Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart. Remember the movie Aladdin with Robin Williams playing the Genie? That movie came out in 1992 and I found myself imagining what I would do with 3 wishes over the years. Obviously there are no Genie’s in life, which is a good thing.

This is another big story that the main stream media refuses to cover and most politicians are too afraid to take on.
  • 4 Points to Prayer

    Keep in mind there is no perfect formula to praying to God. But there are helpful tools to help us focus and not leave out important parts of talking to God. The acronym to help simplify this is ACTS. (A) Adoration – Praising God For who He is. (C) Confession – Any bad attitudes, language, thoughts, etc.
  • What's on your mind?

    There is no denying that TV has drastically changed in the last decade. The majority of the latest stream of TV shows base themselves around the crime world. They take you into the evil minds of people that commit horrible acts of violence to the young and the old. Little is left to the imagination on these crime scene shows. Why subject yourself to these types of programs all in the name of entertainment? Seeing these kinds of destructive
