1 Corinthians 11:12  For as the woman originates from the man, so also the man has his birth through the woman; and all things originate from God.

I was sitting on the bus a little while ago and as I traveled home, I was looking at the faces of all the people that surrounded me. I had the thought that I just wanted to share; every person on this planet looks different than every other person on this planet, even twins will have some small insignificant difference that may not be noticeable. It is much like snowflakes, as they fall from the sky, they all look pretty much the same but when put to the test, they are all different yet the same. It is the design of the designer who has a mind that outshines even the best of us. This Creator Designer is beyond awesome. And then you take these seven billion people and if you examined their lives and what they think, you would find seventy times seventy billion differences.

Every person on this planet is unique, and the God of creation has designed each one for a different purpose. Because He, the Designer, has given each one free will, we do not see a perfect world. There are billions who have decided to follow the broad road of self-determination that leads to destruction. It is a bit like building a house without looking at the blueprint.

The Creator wants all of us to enjoy what He has in store for us in His Kingdom but along the way, we must follow the road laid out that leads there. There is only one road that leads across the great divide and on all other roads, the bridge is out. Yeshua (Jesus) is the only way, He said so Himself when He came to earth to instruct and save us; John 14:6 “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”  The Bible has made it quite clear that He wants all of us to come to Him for that peace, love and eternal rest.

“To Open Blind Eyes”

A Blooming Rose

Isaiah 35:5 Then the eyes of the blind will be opened and the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.

 I have to say at the beginning of this journal entry, it is not my desire to cause Jewish people to become Christian, but to cause Jewish people to see their Messiah. It is also my desire that all races should come to know and accept Yeshua/Jesus into their lives and hearts. I discovered Him (the Creator God) some 55 years ago while serving in the U.S. Air Force. I met Him in a small church in Maple Valley, Washington. I was there looking for a nice girl but when the alter call came, the God of Creation spoke clearly to me that I would not get another chance to receive Him. Since that time, I have come many times close to death but eluded the enemy of my soul because God has called me to be a witness for Him, not so much with pen and parchment but with a camera. (This is why I always include a photo with anything God has for me to say).

Thus, I am trusting that in the year 2019, I will have much to say to glorify my Savior and relate anything else He may have to impress me with. So, “Good-By 2018” and I look forward to an eventful 2019 with Him. Blessings to all who follow this post and may you all have a fruitful New Year.

“First Born Son, Yeshua”


Luke 2:7 And she brought forth her firstborn Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

The Son of God, who came to set us free is Himself humbly born through a young girl and His bed is a feeding troth for sheep. He cannot feed Himself, He cannot wipe His own bottom, He is completely helpless as are all newborn children. Miriam must change and wash Him as she would any child because He is utterly helpless to fend for Himself. The Son of God has placed Himself at the mercy of mortal man from the beginning. This is a King, a Priest of Royal lineage even here. What shall we say, how can we fathom the event. This is such an awesome event in the history of mankind. And Miriam had been asked, “Are you willing?”

From the very beginning, we are given free will and it continues even to this very day, “Are you willing to give Yeshua a birthplace in your heart?” He was willing to be dependent on us, are we willing to be dependent on Him? Really, there is nothing to lose and everything to gain.
