Sorry, I Can’t Give You Final Victory — Lee Duigon

The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit Thou at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool.

– Psalm 110:1

“Final victory can only be achieved, and will be achieved, by Jesus Christ.”-Lee Duigon


 

The Lord of the Rings ends with all the bad guys destroyed and only good guys left. Why can’t my Bell Mountain series end that way? At least one reader has called for me to stop the series and cap it with some kind of “final victory.” Sorry, but I just can’t do it. My […]

Questions from Elisha McFarland:

1: What (or who) inspires you?

My father, mother, and brother inspire me! The Bible inspires me most of all!

2: What is your favorite blog to read?

Lee Duigon’s blog, and many more, of course!

3: Do you enjoy writing?

Yes, I do! I write in my diary every day (since 2015, and I’ve written a few entries when I was younger before the year 2015).

4: Do you have a specific goal for your blog?

My goal is that God will use this blog to reach even one of His elect.

5: What is your favorite conversation topic?

I like to talk about my favorite movies.

6: Do you write about this topic?

I mentioned movies before and I’m posting some on my blog, but I don’t get into detail about movies. So, the answer is close to “No, I don’t.”

7: Do you like coffee?

YEEEEEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!! No morning passes by without a cup o’ coffee in my mouth! (Except when I oversleep, that is… 😅)

8: Do you, like me, have a specific snack you eat while blogging?

I don’t eat snacks when I blog. (I don’t spend too much time on my blog, and most of the stuff I post here are just videos, so I don’t really have to spend too much time.) BUT! As I’m writing this post, I declare I’m eating an éclair! 😅

9: Who taught you how to write?

My dad and mom taught me how to write.

10: What is your strongest conviction?

My strongest conviction is that Christ died for my sins, paid the price of my sins, and secured my salvation. By the everlasting grace and mercy of God, I am convinced that I will go to Heaven when Jesus comes back or when I die, not because of what I have done, but by the merits of Jesus Christ alone!

11: Do you have vision for the future? If so, explain.

My vision for the future is… well, there’re quite a few clouds covering up my future (’cause I don’t have the ability to see through the future, obviously 😅), so I can’t really see well, but I’m hoping, if the Lord wills it, that I will get a good job, become a teacher and/or translator and/or evangelist, get married, etc.

12: What activities (besides writing) do you enjoy?

I really enjoy reading, teaching English, translating, Instagramming (if that’s even a word 😅) etc.

13: Do you think social media is good or helpful?

I think it’s helpful, especially when trying to spread the gospel, but it’s not that good in that it takes a lot of time away from the individual, when more time should be spent with family members.

14: What is your greatest wish?

My greatest wish is that Jesus Christ will come back soon and rule!

<><><><><><><>

Questions from Lydia Potter:

1: What is the most important part of each day to you?

The times when I pray to my Heavenly Father in Heaven!

2: What is your favorite way to exercise/work out?

I like to exercise with dumbbells. Do I use them often? No. Period. 😅

3: What is a food you could never get tired of eating?

Oh, I’ll never get tired of eating… POTATO CHIPS!!! I have to confess unto you all… I’m quite fond of junk food… 😅

4: What is your birthday month?

Good question! My birthday month is January. Coincidentally, the numbers in my birthday are the same numbers as the age when the Biblical Joshua died. (Egyptian Prime Minister Joseph also died at the same age.)

5: What is the scariest thing you’ve ever done?

The scariest thing I’ve ever done was teaching a class all by myself for the first time.

6: How often do you get a headache and how do you get rid of it?

I used to get a lot of headaches when I was younger, but recently I haven’t gotten very many, thanks to the Lord. When I want to get rid of it, I pull some of the hairs on my head upward to let the blood flow more freely inside. That way the headaches subside a little, if not altogether.

7: Have you ever told a joke to a bunch of people, but you were the only one that thought it was funny?

Almost all my jokes are only understandable by my brother, Jeremy, and I don’t really joke around other people other than my brother. Oh, I just though of something that is a little relevant to this question: I once said to a friend, “What do you spell with the letters, S-H-O-P?” My friend said “Shop.” Then I said, “What do you do when it’s a green light?” And then my friend said, “Go”… YOU’RE SUPPOSSED TO SAY “STOP!!!” Auuughhhhh!!!!

Yes, that joke was made up by Ray Comfort. Those who have watched his videos at Living Waters would have known that probably.

‘Be Thou My Vision’ — Lee Duigon

 

“2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” – Hebrews 12:2 KJV 

This is my favorite hymn! This post is from Lee Duigon’s blog.


This is probably the oldest hymn on our list, dating back to the 8th century and still beloved today–Be Thou My Vision, from Ireland. Sung by the Lebanon Youth Chorus.

Be of Good Courage — Lee Duigon

33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

(John 16:33)

This is an encouraging post by Lee Duigon. I highly recommend his blog!

“Pray harder, sing louder, and proclaim the truth. Christ already has the victory, and we are His people. Ooh-rah!” – Lee Duigon


There’s too much defeatism out there. Too many Christians carrying on like the battle’s lost already, bad guys win, nothing we can do about it, etc. 347 more words

The Church during the days of Corona Virus: Pray people don’t get sick with the virus at Church — The Domain for Truth

Please pray that the coronavirus won’t spread in the church and that God will heal those who have gotten it. Also, more importantly, please pray that the closed churches around the world will open again! To God be the glory in these hard times and forever!


Our “This Sunday” series will be another a Corona Virus edition. For this Sunday here’s what you can do: Pray people don’t get sick with the virus at Church

The Lure of the Prequel — Lee Duigon

I highly recommend the Christian adventure series, Bell Mountain, written by Lee Duigon! Please check out his website here and his books here!


I’ve been chewing over this idea for years now, and a few readers have encouraged me in it. Why not write a Bell Mountain book about things that happened before the events so far related in the series? 194 more words

A Prayer for China — Lee Duigon

Please pray that the big dam in China won’t collapse.

From Lee Duigon’s blog.


You probably haven’t heard this story; but as you read this, China’s Three Gorges Dam, the biggest dam in the world, is heavily stressed by monsoon flooding–and tens of millions of human lives, millions of acres of farmland, and millions of tons of food could be lost (https://www.nationalreview.com/corner/the-risks-of-chinas-three-gorges-dams-flooding/). It could be the worst single natural […]

HOW TO IDENTIFY A TRUE CHRIST FOLLOWER… — Kirk’s Journal

This post is from Kirk’s Journal. I found Kirk’s blog just recently and I want to recommend it to you! In this post, Kirk L. Zehnder talks about a very important topic.


MATTHEW 7:21-23: “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in […]

Quick Devotional from Matthew 5:18 (Observation from the Greek) – The Domain For Truth

The Domain for Truth

This is from my daily Greek exercise of sight reading some time ago, courtesy of Vincent S Artale Jr.

Our text is from the Greek translation of Matthew 5:18.  Here is my translation:

“ἀμὴν γὰρ λέγω ὑμῖν· ἕως ἂν παρέλθῃ ὁ οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ γῆ, ἰῶτα ἓν ἢ μία κεραία οὐ μὴ
Truly I say to you until the heaven and the earth will go away, not an iota nor one stroke

παρέλθῃ ἀπὸ τοῦ νόμου , ἕως ἂν πάντα γένηται. ”
will go away from the law, until everything is fulfilled

The Spirit of Caleb — Lee Duigon

Caleb was a man who trusted in God in spite of the odds that met him and the Israelites when approaching the Promised Land (Numbers 13). We need more people like Caleb who will stand up for the Lord in the cause of Jesus Christ!

Read this post by author Lee Duigon! Please pray that our faith in Christ will grow more and more each day through the help of the Holy Spirit!

It’s not too late to put our trust in God and get to work like we mean it. Repent of our sins and get busy! – Lee Duigon


Are we really just grasshoppers? You’ll remember from the Bible how the children of Israel, having reached the border of the Promised Land, sent spies to find out what it was like (Numbers, Chapter 13). The spies came back loaded with fruit and other good things. It’s a land flowing with milk and honey, all […]
