Hearer verses doer. Jesus replied, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by His own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

.. that word alone to many people has kind of a negative feel to it, but that’s not always the case. Risks can be so good at times. I know many people have been been burned before with risk-taking. You know there are wise risks and unwise risks. I dare you to inquire of the Lord first and then to take the good risks He leads you to take!
There are plenty of times when taking a risk can be such a good thing. #prov3/5-6 (Blog) http://ow.ly/7s57301Gc7v Kurtwvs.Tumblr.comA photo posted by Kurt von Schleicher (@kurtwvs) on

Too many I meet are fatalistic or distracted. Too many have lost hope. But we can rejoice in a living hope and over every little victory. We can trust Christ with His church and continue to fight right.. in the light, and in faith for His glory!
"The church is a colony of heaven in a country of death." ~ Eugene Peterson
Be encouraged today to be apart of the Kingdom of light, and life. Be blessed to be apart of the Church, to be greatly loved by the very King of life, the Chief Shepherd of the flock.
It's fun to study His Book for they contain words of life.. the Bible. It's the word of God--powerful to change lives.
It's is so edifying and encouraging, a Book like none other.
My wife Liney... we both have ...a dear Christian friend younger than us in her 50s who has been dying of Cancer. Please pray for Nita who has known Liney since they were both in Kindergarten together.. and also pray for her husband, Mike Murphy. Nita has been in a lot of pain.
Been getting ready to teach in Dallas Texas tomorrow. I pray that the people there will be uplifted and challenged... will be practically helped, inspired, motivated and blessed in the Lord.
Lord, together we will look to You alone for biblical revival in Your Church here, and for great awakening in our nation. Don't want to strive or fight in the flesh. We do want to reach out to those of other Lands as well who have been displaced or even been abandoned in their homeland. Thank you for liberty. We don't care how or who you opt to use for this awakening really. Have Your way as You like. Would like to be involved with You however where we can--please pour out Your Spirit again! Please use us in some way that you deem fitting.. as we exalt the Name above every other Name--Jesus! Thank you God. In Jesus' Name we ask. Amen!
Do watch and earnestly pray. Do you feel a sense of urgency when you intercede for lost people? Clearly spreading the Gospel in the love of Christ is FAR MORE IMPORTANT than every other good or great cause that we believers may feel emotional about. Our time here is so limited.
"While it is daytime, we must do the work of Him who sent Me. Night is coming, when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world." ~ Jesus
I say we continue to watch, to pray expectantly.. and give a flip about the people we meet cuz all of them have great value. "Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong." ~ Paul, 1 Corinthians 16:13

I will lift up my eyes to the mountains; from where shall my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1

You can be changed and God can use you to change others. You can fish for peeps with JOY, and be used of Him to reel in others that seek to be, and need to be caught by the Fisherman!
I don't care what your parents did, you did, your kids did, your uncle did, or your friends did. I don't even care where you've been or who you've been hanging with. You can be changed if you want to be.. even if you've tried to change yourself multiple times via sheer willpower and it didn't work. God can change you. #DareToBelieve facebook.com/shareJesus

How are you and how’s your Father’s Day? You’re not alone dads. What kind of Father is God? He's a good good Father... it's who He is.
Physiologists tell us that so many people have a strong fatherhood-hunger cuz they've had such bad bad fathers. It's a perfect-love hunger.
But Orlando Kurt? How could God be good after allowing all that to happen? Let me tell you it breaks God's heart. Those were not His choices that were made to destroy down there. Hey, didn't He warn us in advance about people and systems like that, and what can come from such? Sure.
How Good? Listen; what God would choose for you is exactly what you would choose for yourself if you always had the good sense to see it as it really is. But I've personally been such an erroring, finite father with whacked judgment and blown it with wrong-doin's and weird balance at times.

We can lead the thirsty to the living water, but we can't make em drink. Time is short, have a sense of urgency. Pray earnestly. We can lead em to Christ even if they can't yet see the incredible beauty. Hear em. Preach the word non-preachy.
"The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and sober, so you can pray. Above all, love one another deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins." 1 Peter 4:7
The people of Noah's time had opportunity to turn away from their sin and go to God ..as Noah slowly obeyed building that YUGE ark. Man, he wished all would take heed to the truth he was telling them about what was ahead. We can't make em enter safety. Today Jesus Christ is the ultimate solution and ark of safety so to speak.
Can pray, warn, persuade, explain, plead with, hear, motivate, reason with, hook with good bait, reel in and encourage some more. Sad.. some preferred to swim.
"The Lord is not slow to fulfill His promise as some understand slowness, but is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance." 2 Peter 3:9 knowGod.org
Be still and enter His rest. Sure, He holds the universe! Be still.. kinda chill with Him.. be attentive, be strong in Him.. take heart for the Lord fights for us. Not cold or luke, but hot not a snot. He will never abandon you.. never ever leave us. Fear not.. not even a little.. God is with So us. The truth is a sword, the battle is the Lord's–He ain't bored ..but is faithful to deliver.. and mighty save! So be brave! Give Him what you crave.
Sunday's comin'. Am preparing today to teach from Daniel. Lord, it's about You and I pray that all who hear the Scriptures will be encouraged and grow spiritually. I feel enthusiastic. Please bless and minister to each one in Jesus' Name. Thanks! #enjoyable #edifying
Why should each of us study Bible Prophecy by prayerfully first gettin' in the Bible instead of other books? It sure beats studying other books "of prophecy."
Studying Bible Prophecy directly, Christian ..not what some whacko money-grubbin' prophecy TV or say Podcast teacher says.. it radically motivates us to biblically live more Godly lives.
It unlocks the mystery of history.
The Bible predicts the future here with 100% accuracy. Always has, and while people are here.. always will. Not hit and miss predicts it.

Have you suffered some loss and are still really feelin' it? What do your own ears hear your mouth and thoughts dwell on the most?
Been workin' on different projects with some great guys, but one of them is struggling and lonely as a single again and wants to talk about his disloyal ex non-stop. The men don't really want to hear it anymore (you know how we can be).
I told him to limit his thoughts and conversation about her, cuz she's history now out there in the world with her new boyfriend. Snap out of it–God hasn't and won't ditch you. He's a believer, so I gave him some passages to meditate upon that I know will help him. Why rehearse and meditate upon the problem rather than the Solution. That was then and this is now. Forgetting what lies behind let's press on going forward with the Lord.
"Whoso offereth praise glorifieth me: and to him that ordereth his conversation aright will I shew the salvation of God." Psalm 50:23
"To the praise of the glory of His grace, wherein He hath made us accepted in His Beloved." Ephesians 1:6
Have you suffered loss or some rejection? So sorry about that. It's really too early to give up and quit. Your God–your first love relationship–won't bail out on you. I dare you to believe again, to hope again.
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee." Isaiah 26:3
"With Your counsel You will guide me, And afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desirenothing on earth. My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Psalm 73:24-26
God is love, He has a good plan of grace and of selfless-agape-love regarding you. He will comfort you. Don't fret, Romans 8:28 and 29 are still in the Bible! He wasn't surprised or caught off guard by what happened to you, and fear of always remaining single or lacking sure ain't of God. Brush it off Buckeroo, He can give you lasting peace and joy again.
"Such Love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear." 1 John 4:18
When others walk out, He walks in, "to comfort all who mourn, to grant those who mourn in Zion, giving them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting. So they will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified." Isaiah 61:2-3
