Having read this I thought it was really enlightening. I appreciate you spending some time and energy to put this short article together. I once again find myself spending way too much time both reading and posting comments. But so what, it was still worth it!
Walkig in the presence of giants here. Cool thinking all around!
You’ve got excellent perception and I’ll definitely be studying your other Blogs!
“A Ray of Hope…” is a timely reminder of God’s mercy, goodness and sovereignty in the midst of our current human perspective under these extremely disappointing circumstances. Thanks, Jim. We needed that reminder. Especially in His own words,
Appreciate your Blog.
If only as a nation we could turn our eyes toward God.
Thanks for your so well expressed words of wisdom and truth.
Good to hear from you, Bob. I’m grateful for you and Maureen boldly speaking out for the truth.
Just wanted to say hi from an old friend…..God bless, Mike
Hi Mike! I would love to hear what you are doing these days. Feel free to write or call me sometime: 704-770-5200.
Thank you for sharing the insight on your recent post regarding the U.S. being enroute to their own Damascus road. It is so in line with what Word says prophetically about both Israel and the Church. As a corporate body we (the Church) have not wanted to be made holy as He is holy…entering into the covenant of salvation, yet choosing to ignore the example Yeshua gave. We say we love Him, but ignore John 15 and John 16.
We have a leader that illustrates the level of corruption and wickedness that has infiltrated the Body of the Messiah. I’m praying that the sons and daughters of the covenant of salvation will come to the place of godly sorrow that yields repentance, that the LORD will hear us, and heal our land.
Our current president reminds me of when the children of Israel did not want GOD to rule over them, but asked for a king like the other nations around them – nations that worshipped idols and false gods; and the LORD gave them Saul…and we know how that turned out. Selah.
Where is the call to prayers for forgiveness and repentance?
May God have mercy on His people and on America. We live in perilous times indeed.
I found your website with the help of Google after reading your evaluation of Michael Hyatt’s book, Platform… What you said is so on target with how I have been thinking about how to approach promoting my books. I wish I could discuss this further in an email. Feel free to check out my website and books before deciding to contact me or not.
Thanks for your feedback, Janice. I took a lot of heat for my review of Michael’s “Platform” book. Feel free to write to me anytime.
