High Waters
Wednesday / April 22, 2009
"Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh" (Matthew 24:44).

We had seen the dark cloud in the distance. Knowing we were in for another soaker, our family prepared for a torrential downpour. Just as we completed our preparations, however, it seemed like some invisible hand reached out and moved the cloud. After not even receiving a drop of rain, the sun came out and we thought the storm was over, until we heard a flash flood alert on the radio. Apparently, eight inches of rain had fallen in the neighboring town, and a three-foot wall of water was headed our way.
Looking out the window, I saw our neighbor working in his low-lying pasture. Knowing he was unaware of the strange events taking place, I sent my son on his bicycle to warn him. Having recently moved his herd of cows and newborn calves to the fresh green grass near the dry riverbed's edge, we knew they were right in the flood's path. As I continued to homeschool my other children, my son soon returned and said, "Mom, I tried to tell him, but he wouldn't listen." Thinking we were overreacting, our neighbor ignored my son's warning and went about his business repairing the pasture fences.A few minutes later, we watched as the fast-moving flood waters approached. From our ranch's hill-top view, we saw the wall of water etch its way toward our neighbor's cattle. Frightened and running in all directions, most of the cattle barely escaped as they ran to higher ground. However, several calves became disoriented in the confusion and found themselves being carried away in the water's swift current. Saddened by the scene, my son turned to me and asked, "Mom, why wouldn't he listen?""I don't know," I replied. "But this reminds me of what it will be like when Christ returns."Someday Christ will bring judgment on today's sinful world. Those who have ignored the message of salvation are in great danger. Like the people in Noah's day, they go about their business and assume they have everything under control until it's too late. Are your loved ones ready for the day when Christ returns as King of Kings and Lord of Lords? "For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be" (Matthew 24:38-39).

Lord, someday You will return as King. Please use our homeschooling family to share the good news of Your forgiveness with as many people as possible before that day comes. In Jesus' name, Amen.

I as I was reading this tonight in my email box, I thought I had to share this on my blog. It's a great visual for me. How even I sometimes don't see or listen to those warning signs. But it is also true for my unsaved and backsliden family members. It is sad to know that one day they will be the ones that are left behind. We need to pray fervently for our unsaved family and friends. I pray that you all have a blessed day!! In the name of Jesus Christ!

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
