"You Killed the Author of Life, BUT…"

i absolutely love Acts 3:14-15, where we can hear Peter preaching at Pentecost on the Southern Steps of the Temple Staircase to those in Jerusalem: "You rejected Jesus… You killed the Author of Life, BUT God raised Him to life. And we are witnesses of this fact!"

Hallelujah! He’s Alive, again! 

Pastor Kerry Willis 

"The Lord Knows Who His People Are" [Those who turn from sin.]

"i know of nothing more horrific to the human race or more damning to the eternal soul than for church leaders to say that Holy God can bless sin and/or that sin is no longer sin. If we repent, Holy God will forgive our sins, even purify us from all our sin, nevertheless, He will not tolerate sin in the lives of those who profess to be His." -kww 

"But the foundation God has laid is solid. On it is written, "The Lord knows who His people are. So everyone who worships the Lord must turn away from evil." 2 Timothy‬ ‭2‬:‭19‬ ‭CEV‬‬

"Let us turn from sin and turn to Him. Amen."

 Please Love Jesus Passionately!

Healing that Ushers in Joy

I awoke early this morning with this prophetic verse of healing that ushers in joy clearly lifting my heart: 

"But for you who fear My name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in His wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture." ‭‭Malachi‬ ‭4‬:‭2‬ NLT

Thank you, Jesus.

New Mercy Every Single Day 

Dearest Abba Father, please help me to take just one day at a time and to remember moment-by-moment that You are totally trustworthy. Cause me to know that You will see to it that Your new mercy surely renews every single day for the rest of my life. Be my Life, Lord. i love You and i need You, for forever and today. Amen. -kww

"The Lord's kindness never fails! If He had not been merciful, we would have been destroyed. The Lord can always be trusted to show mercy each morning. Deep in my heart I say, "The Lord is all I need; I can depend on Him!"Lamentations‬ ‭3‬:‭22‬-‭24‬ ‭CEV‬‬

Lord have mercy.

Been in the Holy Land 

Sorry i haven’t posted on a more regular basis lately but i have been in the Holy Land leading a discipleship journey for the past 9 days or so. If you follow me on Facebook you have likely been inundated with inspiration and information and images. 

Anyway, today was our last day in Israel, and we were at the battlefield where David killed Goliath, 1 Samuel 17. We were also at Emmaus, Luke 24 and then at the Joppa Seaport. Read Jonah 1. 

Hope to be back in rhythm with my blog-posting in a few days. 

Live Antcipating!

At EnGedi Today, along the Dead Sea 

i wept publicly, nevertheless, unashamedly, today, as i read aloud 1 Samuel 24:1-22 and then from 2 Samuel 9:1-13 to our #HeartsAflame #DiscipleshipJourneys’ group at EnGedi — “the rocks of the wild goats” — the cliffs along the Dead Sea where David hid from King Saul. David’s loving-kindness expressed for even King Saul, who wanted to kill him, but especially for Jonathan and later Jonathan’s crippled son, Mephiboshet, moved me as deeply as i have ever been moved. Just sayin’…. i am so Grateful for the kindness of the Lord’s Presence in my life.

i am a debtor.
