National Day of Prayer and Fasting

The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman. This year the 59th Annual Observance falls on Thursday, May 6, 2010.

It exists to communicate with every individual the need for personal repentance and prayer, and to mobilize the Christian community to intercede for America's leaders and its families. It represents a Judeo Christian expression of the national observance, based on our understanding that this country was birthed in prayer and in reverence for the God of the Bible.

Do the Ten Commandments still apply today?



Every year at this time we make a point of watching the Cecil B. De Mille movie, "The Ten Commandments" but just how much do we know about them? When were the Ten Commandments first applied? Did they start with Moses at Mt. Sinai or does the bible show someone before Moses obeyed them? Do you only have to obey some of them or all of them? Do they apply to Christians today?












(1) And God spake all these words, saying,
(2) I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.
(3) Thou shalt have no other gods before me.



(4) Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth:

(5) Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;
(6) And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.


(7) Thou shalt not take the name of the LORD thy God in vain; for the LORD will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.


(8) Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.
(9) Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

(10) But the seventh day is the sabbath of the LORD thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:
(11) For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.



(12) Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.



(13) Thou shalt not kill.



(14) Thou shalt not commit adultery.


(15) Thou shalt not steal.



(16) Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.



(17) Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour's wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour's.

If The Dollar Fell From Grace


What would happen if the U.S. dollar was no longer the world’s reserve currency?

We've heard talk of that lately but what would happen if the reserve currency was changed to the Euro, the Yen or a new single world currency?






1. Everything we import would cost more.
2. The credit market would collapse.
3. The Fed would print more money to combat the credit squeeze and the likely result would be hyper inflation.
4. American power and influence in the world would seriously decline.

Passion of the Christ - Grace Like Rain

As we prepare for this Passover season remember our Lord Jesus Christ gave all for our sins. All He asks in return is to obey Him that we might have life and that we might have it more abundantly.


By grace we are saved as a gift from God through faith in Jesus Christ. We prove our faith by our actions as He proved His when He laid down His life for us.

(22) Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect? (23) And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God. (24) Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only.
John 10:10 ... I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Bunnies, Colored Eggs, and Counting to Three

When was Jesus Christ crucified and resurrected? Did He really die on Good Friday and come back to life on Easter Sunday?



Jesus Christ said He would be in the grave for three days and three nights. How can you get 3 days & 3 nights between Good Friday afternoon to Easter Sunday morning?

What is the true origin of Easter? What do chocolate rabbits, colored eggs, hot cross buns, and new clothes have to do with the resurrection of our Lord? How could this have anything to do with Jesus Christ when this custom seems to predate Christ’s birth?







The Chronology of Christ's Crucifixion and Resurrection



Tuesday: Jesus Christ ate an early-evening Passover meal with His disciples (at the beginning of Nisan 14, the first month of the Hebrew calendar) and instituted the New Covenant symbols (Matthew 26:26-28). Jesus was then betrayed by Judas, arrested and during the night brought before the high priest.



Wednesday: Jesus was crucified and died around 3 p.m. (Matthew 27:46-50). This was the preparation day for the annual, not weekly, Sabbath, which began that evening (Mark 15:42; Luke 23:54; John 19:31). Jesus' body was placed in the tomb at twilight (Matthew 27:57-60).


Thursday: This was the high-day Sabbath, the first day of Unleavened Bread (John 19:31; Leviticus 23:4-7). It is described as the day after the Day of Preparation (Matthew 27:62).


Friday: The high-day Sabbath now past, the women bought and prepared spices for anointing Jesus' body before resting on the weekly Sabbath day, which began at sunset (Mark 16:1; Luke 23:56).


Saturday: The women rested on the weekly Sabbath, according to the Fourth Commandment (Luke 23:56; Exodus 20:8-11). Jesus rose around sunset, exactly three days and three nights (72 hours) after burial, fulfilling the sign of Jonah and authenticating Jesus' Messiahship.


Sunday: The women brought the prepared spices early in the morning while it was still dark (Luke 24:1; John 20:1). Jesus had already risen (Matthew 28:1-6; Mark 16:2-6; Luke 24:2-3; John 20:1). He did not rise on Sunday morning, but at sunset the day before.

eHarmony Launches Homosexual Offering


I have put off posting about this topic long enough! I am not homophobic, I'm not afraid of them, I am just disgusted by their abominable behavior. I'm tired of seeing their "lifestyle" shoved in front of my face as if to say, "See! Look at me! The media says I'm 'normal', so now you have to deal with it!" Now they've been allowed to force a business with Christian foundations to accept them despite the existence of thousands of homosexual dating sites already on the web.

It's time real men stood up and called a sissy a sissy! We can't stand by and allow this behavior to continue as if we don't see it, as if we're not disgusted by it, as if we value political correctness above what we innately know deep inside of us is outrageously wrong! Everything inside a man that makes a man a man screams out, this behavior is WRONG! We cannot continue to stand idly by while they force their agenda further into our businesses, churches, schools and government policies.

We're not afraid of it, our personal manhood isn't threatened by it, we're just seething with righteous indignation over it! Enough already!

Jeremiah 8:12 (KJV) Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fall: in the time of their visitation they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.

Jude 1:7 (KJV) Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

1 Cor. 6:9-10 KJV) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

Debaptise Yourself?!

Being non-religious apparently is no longer good enough. Now to be truly ungodly, one has to de-baptise oneself! No wonder God has about had it with us!




The certficate declares:
"I ________ having been subjected to the Rite of Christian Baptism in infancy (before reaching an age of consent), hereby publicly revoke any implications of that Rite and renounce the Church that carried it out. In the name of human reason, I reject all its Creeds and all other such superstition in particular, the perfidious belief that any baby needs to be cleansed by Baptism of alleged ORIGINAL SIN, and the evil power of supposed demons. I wish to be excluded henceforth from enhanced claims of church membership numbers based on past baptismal statistics used, for example, for the purpose of securing legislative privilege.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Hebrews 6:6 (KJV) If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.

Rev 20:11-15 (KJV) And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. (12) And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (13) And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works. (14) And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. (15) And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

Who Am I

My photo
I strive to be as the Bereans spoken of in Acts 17:10-11 receiving the word with all readiness of mind, and searching the scriptures daily, whether those things are so. Check up on me in your own bible. Should you find me in error please let me know immediately. We must prove all things (1Thes 5:21) and rightly divide the word of truth (2Tim 2:15) together lest we be deceived. (Matt 24:24)
