It's resurrection time again!

"Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matthew 12:38-40

If we listen to the “big preachers,” the “popular ministries” or the “accepted by the scholars” modern day preaching, we get the idea that every dedicated, “sold out for God” Christian will be a financial and personal success. It seems the only thing standing between us and God’s abundant blessings is our lack of faith. If only we would really mean business with God He would pour out more blessings than we could imagine; poverty would vanish, illness would disappear and everyone would “live happily ever after.”

A pastor friend of mine related this story. On their way home from church one Sunday, his ten year old daughter quizzed him. She said, “Daddy, that story you told today…was that really true or was it just preaching?” A little girl, wise beyond her years; for so much of what we hear as preaching may be just that…preaching, not truth!

ZIonica News came out with some interesting statistics regarding churches in America in their April 24, 2012 issue. Their figures revealed that over 85% of the churches are declining; when measuring church growth with population growth, only 4% of our churches are growing. One startling statistic was that no one county in the United States has more attending church today than it did ten years ago. The study showed that atheism, Mormonism and New Age groups are growing.

The following is an excerpt from an article by Joseph A. Califano, Jr. in Americanmagazine.org, May 24, 2010. It contains some very valuable information and statistics.

Many years ago I was invited to conduct a weekly "spiritual hour" at one of the drug/alcohol rehab facilities in our town.  Realizing that the term "spiritual hour" could take on many different definitions and be very ambiguous, I wanted to clarify with the director of the facility what he could expect from me.  We both agreed that "spiritual hour" at his facility would simply be "Jesus Christ and the Bible."  It would not include a specific church, denomination or religion.  I can thank the inmates in the Big Spring Federal Prison who attended my Bible class for making me aware of clarifyi

The debates continue to rage in regard to evolution and creation in our schools. What is interesting is that the evolutionist does not tolerate both sides being presented…this coming from the liberals who are always talking about tolerance! This group has already gotten the Bible out of schools. This group fears the Bible more than anything. They would rather give our children condoms, aid them in abortions and embrace homosexual perversion rather than let the Bible be free in the classroom. You talk about Bible phobia!

Super Bowl 50 has come and gone. It was a great defensive football game which thrilled the real aficionados of the game and was boring to those who just want see touchdowns. As usual, there were private celebrations after every big play with either the offensive or defensive player drawing great attention to himself as if he won the game. This game also revealed that some who can celebrate their wins cannot handle their losses too well. Grown men drawing millions of dollars, pouting, whining and blaming others. This attitude has marked the biggest change in sports in my lifetime.

I wonder if man has outsmarted himself. With technology continuing to improve, the world-wide web, Facebook and Twitter; tablets and exquisite cell phones, interplanetary travel, the ability of friend or foe to know where you are and what you are doing at all times, can the mark of the beast be far behind?

"Thou answeredst them, O LORD our God: thou wast a God that forgavest them, though thou tookest vengeance of their INVENTIONS" Psalms 99:8 (caps mine) "Thus they provoked him to anger with their INVENTIONS and the plague brake in upon them." Psalms 106:29 (caps mine)

"Thus were they defiled with their own works, and went a whoring with their own INVENTIONS." Psalms 106:39 (caps mine)

"Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many INVENTIONS." Ecclesiastes 7:29 (caps mine)

Every month I promise myself that I will just write about good things, try not to be controversial and be positive like the popular preachers are. Something always jars me back to reality and the seriousness of God’s calling. Five years ago doctors diagnosed me with a rapid growing lung cancer and gave me a year to live. God Almighty changed that, gave me additional duties and this year the doctors announced me cancer free. Seven times each week God lets me stand before different classes and tell them about His Son. I get to serve as a jail chaplain and a police/fire chaplain.
