Has God Predetermined Every Detail in the Universe?

33 The lot is cast into the lap; but the whole disposing thereof is of the LORD. (Proverbs 16:33)

 For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s. (Romans 14:7-8)

Listen to Him

7 And there was a cloud that overshadowed them: and a voice came out of the cloud, saying, This is My beloved Son: hear Him.

– Mark 9:7

– Lyrics –


Peter went with James and John
Jesus led them to a mountain
A voice from heaven said
A voice from heaven said to them
“Listen to Him”

You gotta listen to Him
Listen to Him

His shining face like the sun
His shining face shone to everyone
His clothes became as white
His clothes became as white as light
Listen to Him

You gotta listen to Him (listen to Him)
You gotta listen to Him (listen to Him)

Moses and Elijah talking there with Jesus
A cloud enveloped them
Terrified, the disciples face down to the ground
Looked up and the only one they found was Jesus
Glorified, Glorified

This is My Son whom I love
This is My Son whom I love
With Him I am well pleased
With Him I am well pleased
Listen to Him

You better listen to Him (listen to Him)
Wo listen to Him (listen to Him)
Listen, listen, listen because:

This is My Son whom I love
This is My Son whom I love
With Him I am well pleased
With Him I am well pleased
Listen to Him

Listen to Him

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

Is it Really Blasphemy to Say “OMG”?

The third commandment of the Lord teaches us: “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.” (Exodus 20:7) Is saying “OMG” breaking the third commandment? Ray Comfort explains it in the video and evangelizes to a couple at Huntington Beach in California.

Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb?

29 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. (John 1:29)

– Lyrics –


Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing pow’r?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Refrain:
Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for the mansions bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
Oh, be washed in the blood of the Lamb!

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

Here are some observations:

Monday Q&A 6: God and Man — Elisha McFarland

In this post, Elisha McFarland explains the center of Christianity: God and man.

“In dying for the scum of the universe, Jesus bridged the gap between holiness and evil and brought us back into the company of His Father.” – Elisha McFarland


In our past three Q&A’s, we have discussed three highly important topics: the character of God, foundations of Christianity, and Scripture. Yet so far, none of these topics have been as important as the one to be discussed today. God and man. Deo et hominibus. Theós kai ánthropos. The center of Christianity.

An Interesting Interview

This is a story of a man who, by the grace of God alone, converted from Islam to Christianity. To God alone be the glory!

(Description from YouTube)

Nabeel Qureshi (April 13, 1983 – September 16, 2017) was a Pakistani-American Christian apologist, author, speaker, and convert from the Ahmadiyya movement of Islam. Ahmadi Muslims worldwide are estimated to be around 10-20 million. The Ahmadiyya’s beliefs are more closely related to those of the Sunni Muslims than the Shi’a Muslims. The Ahmadis are guided by the Five Pillars of Islam and believe in the 6 Articles of Faith. They also accept the Quran as their holy book and pray five times a day while facing the Kaaba. Ahmadis practice Sunnah and accept the Authority of the Hadiths. However, their distinguishing characteristic is their belief in Mizra as the Promised Messiah and redeemer as was promised by the Islamic Prophet Muhammad. Mizra’s aim was to propagate Islam throughout the world through peaceful means and to revive the forgotten Islamic values such as peace, sympathy, and forgiveness.

The 34-year-old Nabeel was an itinerant speaker with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM). This interview was recorded in February 2014 with Canadian Pastor Robbie Symons.

The Great God

AMEN!! Hallelujah to our great KING JESUS!

Looking to God

There is no other God than God. He is the Great God. He is ruler of the heavens, creator of all things and the high judge. He is all-merciful, kind to the brokenhearted and always forgiving. His love is greater than all the love we could ever have for anyone. His joy is endless.

“Clap your hands, all peoples! Shout to God with loud songs of joy! For the Lord, the Most High, is to be feared, a great king over all the earth.” (Psalms 47:1-2)

The greatness of His grace is beyond measure, for He gave His son Jesus as a sacrifice to pay for all our sins. As true as the sun rises and the sun sets, so is God’s love for His children. His love for us never fails. From age to age, His deeds are witness to His greatness. The oceans came together by His…
