How wonderful it is that God reveals His Word to those that diligently seek Him, to understand what He is speaking to us in these last days.  It amazes me how the Word of God from Genesis to Revelation is written and woven together in a cohesive whole.

Here is an example of two scriptures from Isaiah 60:1-2.  It took me a long while to figure out that although they are written in this order, verse 2 occurs before verse 1.  This means that the earth will be undergoing judgment and evil and wickedness will prevail- BEFORE the coming of the LORD.  Read the two verses, 1 and then 2; then read them again verse 2 first, then verse 1.  This chapter is a Millennial prophecy to be fulfilled with the return of Christ who will rule and reign over the nations in ‘The Zion of the Holy One of Israel’, in Jerusalem.  PTL!  MARANATHA, THE LORD COMETH!

Isa 60:1-2 (KJV)

60 Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.

For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.

The Glory of Zion  (NIV)

60 “Arise, shine, for your light has come,
    and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.
See, darkness covers the earth
    and thick darkness is over the peoples,
but the Lord rises upon you
    and his glory appears over you.



GOD’S PROMISES of PROVISIONS for us are LIMITLESS and can be found everywhere in His Word.

When we LOVE GOD, He will comfort us and deliver us from adverse situations; He will answer our prayers; He will honor us with recognition and respect.   God will assure us of long life and reveal more of Himself to us.

Do you want to be the head and not the tail, on top and not on the bottom, esteemed rather than out of God’s favor?  We can have God’s good favor by being on good terms with Him!

Psalm 91:14-16

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.


Dear Friends,

I have not forgotten my blog!  I am taking a short hiatus to work on a protracted art project- an oil painting of an Italian street scene.  What a challenge, not having painted buildings and figures ever before!  I study art online and am currently on the 8th of 13 lessons.  There are also my other activities and in addition, I am working on a Bible study on Nehemiah for the women’s group at my church.  I’ll be posting on the study later.  God bless you all!  ~Liz

Know Who God Is

God, My Father1To you it was shown, that you might know that the Lord is God; there is no other besides Him (Deuteronomy 4:35). If we Know Jesus, we know God, because God is in His Son. Jesus told Philip this, and it puzzled Him. Do you know who God is? God is Spirit, He can do whatever He wants, and He chooses whoever He wants, to do His work. He answers to No one, and none is like Him. He is the only Living God, and besides Him, there is none other. God is in Heaven and He is in full control of heaven and earth. He uses anyone He wishes to represent Him, but now, He only speaks through His Son, there is no doubt who this is. He showed this by raising Him from the dead to sit at His right hand side. No one can have that position but…

US elementary school does away with gendered bathrooms


LET’S GET REAL, FOLKS! Satisfying our bathroom needs is a necessity for EVERYONE, young and old of all sexes. Maybe some people have not seen widespread homelessness with no toilet facilities to speak of. Or been out in mission fields where one would be happy to find and/or share toilet areas for mixed sexes, places with no flush toilets and with primitive standards of sanitation. Let’s be as accommodating as we can to provide clean and safe bathroom facilities for everyone, everywhere, even if we have to share them and take our turns when nature calls. JUST WORK IT OUT; NO BIG DEAL!

God has spoken – and He’s still speaking.


Hebrews 4:7b says, ‘Today, if you would hear His voice and when you hear it, do not harden your hearts.’ (AMP BIBLE)

“The Lord, the only true God, has spoken” (Psalm 50:1).

In today’s world, there are many voices that demand to be heard. There is one voice that we really need to hear – and keep on hearing. It’s the voice of the Lord, our God. He has so much to say to us. What He says really matters. Are we listening to Him? Will we keep on listening to Him – when so many other voices are threatening to drown out His voice?

America in Crisis: A Battle of “Princes and Principalities” (A KJ Op Ed)


We are in a BATTLE of NOT FLESH AND BLOOD, but a SPIRITUAL BATTLE of the forces of GOOD AND EVIL, between GOD and SATAN for the souls of men.

American Christianity 2Last night, my bride and I attended a once-a month get-together with Christian Friends , with whom we used to meet weekly in a church-sponsored small group, in someone’s home on a weeknight.

Being Southern Baptists, rest assured that there was plenty of food and fellowship.

After the meal, we began to talk about what it going on around us, in this nation, once referred to as “The Shining City Upon the Hill”.

The topics of Racial Division and the murders of 9 American Law Enforcement Offices in 9 days, the rapidly deteriorating American Work Force, The potentially-catastrophic Iran Deal, the arrest of American Christian, Kim Davis, while others in power, such as Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama, laugh in the face of our laws, and the vulgarity, and oblivious self-centered nature of Americans Pop Culture.

The conclusion that that the 11 of us came to, was the fact that America is…

“I make all things new.” 9/02/2015 by Pastor Rob Barkman

The reason for the shaking of all things is for God to bring forth the new.  The old order must pass away so that God’s New World Order can come forth.

A Time of Shaking!

Source: A Time of Shaking!


No kidding, TRUE story!!!  (See video below)

AN ABOMINATION IN THE ‘HOUSE OF GOD’.  The minister and the members stood and applauded when a young gay man proposed to his boyfriend from the pulpit.  The minister shook their hands and the congregation gave them a standing ovation!

At first I thought it was a comical skit!   Well, because I couldn’t hear too clearly what the young man was saying!

Satan is busiest in churches among so-called ‘believers’.  His main goal is to destroy the faith of believers and the church en masse.  The unimaginable is taking place in some churches! Some pastors have been exposed and caught in adultery and fornication, pornography, pedophilia, etc. It should come as no surprise that their members may do the same things, too.   Same sex marriages have become the rage in society.  In Hawaii, as soon as same sex marriage was legalized, a minister and his partner were among the first to ‘get married’!   Since then there have been a few hundred of these unions in paradise.

Today many churches are doing what is ‘politically correct’ and ‘going with the flow’; evil is good and good is evil; there is no right way or wrong way, but ‘do whatever makes you feel good’ is the way to go. Compromise is the order of the day with a casual attitude toward God and His Word.

The apostasy of the churches is gaining momentum because the whole counsel of God’s Word is not preached- salvation and repentance from sin, holiness and purity, eternal life with God and eternal punishment in hell, obedience and blessings, disobedience and curses and judgment, etc. God is in the back seat and no longer the driver. The Bible is not believed or respected, therefore there is no moral compass to follow. God is not honored, but instead He is forsaken, rejected, grieved and provoked to anger and wrath. The signs of His judgment are already upon us and in the world.

Returning to this video- The practice of homosexuality is an ABOMINATION to God. (Lev 18:22). No if’s or but’s about it. UNNATURAL SEX IS AN ABOMINATION!  It is such a serious sin that nations are defiled’ that allow this behavior. THE BIBLE SAYS THAT ANYONE WHO ADDS OR TAKES AWAY FROM GOD’S WORD IS IN DANGER OF HELL FIRE AND ETERNAL DAMNATION!  (Revelation 22:18-19)

Today I’m zeroing in on Sounding the Shofar Group members who are pastors, church leaders and Bible School students.  That doesn’t apply to you?  It certainly does if you pick and choose what you think won’t offend anyone, rock the boat, or cause some people to leave your church and not come back. It would be better if YOU, pack up and leave yourself, than to be impersonating a man or woman of God who speaks ‘another’ gospel.  I challenge you to deal with homosexuality and fornication in your churches and Bible Schools by teaching and preaching God’s Word on these and other sin issues. If you don’t, the sinners’ blood will be on your hands. (Ezekiel 33:1-20) Read my post-…/repent-return-and-remain-wit…/
