Love one another as Jesus has loved us.


The inherent desire for justice is primal. Assuring us that the human race will not join the dinosaurs, the Barbary lion or the dodo bird.


Justice is the gatekeeper of the greater good. Preventing the proliferation of evil. Evil that…

Betrays trust.

Enslaves the downtrodden.

Preys upon the innocent.

Victimizes the vulnerable.

Proclaims the guilty innocent and the innocent guilty.

Like much that was once great about America. We have abandoned the greater good for the greater me.

The statistics are staggering.

80% of the world population lives on less than $10 a day. More than 3 billion people live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live on less than $1.25 a day.

1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. An estimated 22,000 children die each day as a result.

805 million people worldwide do not have enough food to eat.

165 million children under the age of 5 have a reduced rate of growth and development due to chronic malnutrition.

Hunger is the number one cause of death in the world. Killing more than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined.

It is estimated that $60 billion annually is needed to end extreme global poverty. That is less than 25% of the income of the top 100 richest billionaires.

More than 750 million people do not have access to clean drinking water. Inadequate drinking water, sanitation and hand hygiene contribute to diarrhea. Which kills an estimated 2,300 people per day.

Because they are too poor to afford proper treatment. 2 million children each year die of preventable diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia.

21.8 million children under 1 year of age worldwide have not received the three recommended doses of the diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis vaccine.

Approximately 1.6 billion people live without electricity. (11 Facts About Global Poverty)

We can do better!

We can change lives by obeying God and His truth. Truth that is just and without prejudice.

Do not be deceived! God rights all wrongs. Dispenses mercy when needed, and discipline when deserved.


Israel in eighth century B.C. was an economic, political and military giant. Misjudging the reason for their prosperity and God’s attitude about disobedience and apostasy. Both the nation and her inhabitants were shamelessly disobedient.

Angered by their wickedness. The Lord used the prophet Amos to reprimand His disobedient children. Commanding them to repent. So they would once again let justice run down like waters and righteousness as a mighty and ever-flowing stream. Amos 5:24

No longer would the Lord be pacified by sacred assemblies or religious rituals. Unless the Hebrews shared their wealth with those less fortunate. They would be disciplined.

The Lord’s counsel fell upon deaf ears. Self-gratification had replaced giving food and clothing to the poor and the foreigners. Doing justice for the fatherless and the oppressed. So men of the earth may terrify them no more. Psalm 10:18 

Sadly, the same can be said for many today who call themselves Christians. Refusing to acknowledge they are held to a higher moral standard than non-believers.

Yes, their sin has been forgiven. Their eternal passports stamped. Even so, there are always consequences for sin.

Sin that unashamedly declares. Evil is good, and good is evil. That dark is light, and light is dark. That bitter is sweet, and sweet is bitter. What sorrow for those who are wise in their own eyes and think themselves so clever. Isaiah 5:20-21

Sin mocks God’s holiness. It scorns His justice by thumbing its nose at abolishing corruption and immorality. Punishing those found guilty of peddling evil.

It is the Lord’s truth that brings moral order to the world. When His truth reigns.

Justice prevails.

Relationships honored.

Mercy extended.

Wrongs rectified.

Anger, hostility and violence eradicated.

Peace rules.

The Lord scattered everywhere. He gave to the needy. His righteousness remains forever.
The One who supplies seed for planting and bread for eating. Will supply and multiply your seed and will increase your crop. Which is righteousness.

You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous in every way. Such generosity produces thanksgiving to God through us. 2 Corinthians 9:9-11 

Stop worrying about everyday life. Whether you have enough food and drink or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food and your body more than clothing?

Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns. For your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to Him than they are?

Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?

And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field, and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing. Yet, Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are.

And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers. That are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow. He will certainly care for you.

Why do you have so little faith? Don’t worry about these things. These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers.

But your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else and live righteously, and He will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:25-33 



God’s justice is eternal. It never veers to the right or left because its foundation is God’s truth— His principles for life. Truth that surpasses politically correct doctrines and the religious traditions of man.

List 3 things that hinder God’s justice reigning on the earth.

Creative Hands

If you are to fulfill your Kingdom destiny, anything that can cause you to stumble and fail has to be eliminated. Removing heart issues that…

Silence Papa’s voice.

Nullify Papa’s glory in your life.

Weaken your ability to defend yourself against satan’s destructive schemes.

Damage your witness as a disciple of Christ.

Sadly, instead of allowing Papa to remove unrighteous behaviors and paradigms, many make contingency plans.

“If I am emotionally stronger, my heart will heal, and the pain will vanish.

And if that does not work, I will bury the pain so deep. That it is erased from my memory.

And if that does not work, I will numb it with alcohol, drugs, food, sex, shopping. Whatever it takes.

And if that does not work, I will be more rational and logical. Deadening my emotions so pain can no longer wrap its barbed arms around me.”

Sadly, these “if that does not work” strategies slowly nail the lids shut on their coffins. Slowly dying. They join the multitude that has lamented, “If only I had never been born!”

Thankfully, the Great Physician, Jesus is on call and will do whatever is necessary to heal you. His medicine may leave a bitter taste in you mouth, but it is for your own good.

I had only heard about you before, but now I have seen you with my own eyes.

Less Is More

All have an innate hunger for the divine— the supernatural. For Moses this hunger was so intense that a life without God’s glory was not a life worth living.

One day Moses said to the Lord, “You have been telling me.”

‘Take these people up to the Promised Land.’

“But You haven’t told me whom You will send with me. You have told me.”

‘I know you by name, and I look favorably on you.’

“If it is true that you look favorably on me. Let me know Your ways. So I may understand You more fully and continue to enjoy Your favor.”

The Lord replied, “I will personally go with you Moses, and I will give you rest. Everything will be fine for you.”

Then Moses said, “If You don’t personally go with us, don’t make us leave this place. How will anyone know that You look favorably on me and on Your people? If You don’t go with us? For Your presence among us sets Your people and me apart from all other people on the earth.”

The Lord replied to Moses, “I will indeed do what you have asked. For I look favorably on you, and I know you by name.”

Moses responded, “Then show me your glorious presence.” Exodus 33:12-18 

So it is today for a growing number of Christians. Weary of the Gospel devoid of the supernatural— God’s glory. They are hungrily seeking His glory.

Why is God’s glory absent in many American churches?

Man’s wisdom, not the Lord’s is honored.

Humanistic philosophies are firmly entrenched in the American version of Christ’s Gospel. These philosophies extol man’s wisdom and encourage personal willpower and introspection.

YOU have the ability to reach your full potential— self-actualization. Focusing on the improvement of self should be the dominating force in your life.

The self-actualized YOU is independent, autonomous and resistant to societal pressures. Possessing the ability to transcend the adversities of life.

Humanistic philosophies believe all knowledge needed for transformation is available to YOU.

Humanism refuses to acknowledge there is a transcendent, sovereign God who has declared.

“My thoughts are not your thoughts. Nor are your ways My ways. For as the heavens are higher than the earth. So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9

God’s wisdom does not belong to this world or to the rulers of this world. Who are in power today and gone tomorrow. It is a wisdom that has been hidden. Which God had planned for our glory before the world began.

Not one of the rulers of this world has known it. If they had, they wouldn’t have crucified the Lord of glory. But as Scripture says. No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined the things that God has prepared for those who love Him. 1 Corinthians 2:6-9 

God violates or transcends natural laws so He and His Kingdom are glorified. In doing so all mankind shall see— behold and understand and at last acknowledge the salvation of God. The deliverance from eternal death decreed by God. Luke 3:6 

Perhaps the absence of divine supernatural power in the lives of many Christians today is because their hearts have posted a “No Trespassing” sign. Refusing to believe whatever has been born of God conquers the world.

This is the victory that has conquered the world— our faith. And who is the one who conquers the world? The one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5:4-5 

By believing in Him you will have life by the power of His name. John 20:31  Power that guarantees whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living has disappeared. A new way of living has come into existence 2 Corinthians 5:17 — becoming Christ-like.

Disciples of Christ unashamedly admit, “I have not yet reached my goal, and I am not perfect. But Christ has taken hold of me. So I keep on running and struggling to take hold of the prize.

My friends, I don’t feel that I have already arrived. But I forget what is behind, and I struggle for what is ahead. I run toward the goal. So that I can win the prize of being called to heaven. This is the prize that God offers because of what Christ Jesus has done.

All of us who are mature should think in this same way. And if any of you think differently, God will make it clear to you. But we must keep going in the direction that we are now headed.” Philippians 3:12-16 

By not trusting God’s wisdom. Christ’s Gospel has been stripped of His supernatural power. Which is the prerequisite for both personal and cultural transformation.

Until the Church and Christians return to the literal interpretation of Scripture. Acknowledge that the earth and the supernatural realm are not two separate, alien worlds. But different expressions of the Lord’s spiritual reality. Her followers will never experience the fullness of the Lord’s glory.

Like Moses you must trust God to do what only God can do. With a word make something out of nothing.

When everything is hopeless. You must believe anyway. Decide to live not on the basis of what you know you cannot do, but on what God said He will do!


Many Christians lives are ones of quiet despair. Attempting to live a holy, sinless life without God’s supernatural power— His glory.

They are stuck in no man’s land. Caught between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness. Standing alongside them in no man’s land are hopelessness, failure, shame and guilt.

Was there a time when you felt caught between the Kingdom of Light and the kingdom of darkness?

What did you do to cope during this time?

Faith Building Blocks.png

Life is on cruise control. Yes, there are dips and potholes on the road forcing you to slow down. But you are confident your destiny is up ahead. Spiritually, you are doing everything you know to do. In fact, your relationship with Papa has never been better.

Then one day, death erects a roadblock.



Pink slip

Natural disaster



Equilibrium vanishes. No longer thinking coherently. Your brain is a video game. Bombarded with thoughts at record speed, many illogical. Ramming you into walls. Leaving you dazed and confused. Your soul eventually malfunctions and screams, “Game over!”

What is the strategy that will make you a winner in this game called life?


Christ reminds us if we will persevere— overcome— conquer. There are promises— blessings awaiting us here on earth and in eternity.


There is not a single scenario of circumstances that have not been foreseen by Papa. It is impossible for Him to devise a plan that will fail. After all, He knows everything before it happens.

Do not raise the white flag and surrender before you reach the finish line. Papa is running beside you. Cheering you on to victory.

The person who continues to study God’s perfect teachings that make people free, and who remains committed to them will be blessed. People like that don’t merely listen and forget. They actually do what God’s teachings say.
