Show me the one, show me the way, help me to know just how to share the love You gave.

Look around you! There is probably someone who could use some love! All too often, we find ourselves surrounded by people who are going through some difficult times. Perhaps you are! Whether it's unemployment, family problems, health problems, depression, loneliness, or whatever, all of us would like some relief from what we are going through. We need to see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel!

And there is! The Light of Lights, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, is willing and more than able to lift us from our darkness, into His pure and safe haven of light. He promises His love and presence to heal and deliver, to strengthen and help, all those who call on Him.

Like the beam from the mighty lighthouse, that directs ships safely back to harbor, His Light is there to show us the way to Him, for Jesus is truly the Way, the Truth and the Life.

It is my prayer that this site encourages you to reflect His light to those around you who need to know Him. Let Him use you to share His love. And as you embark on this remarkable journey, please share your experiences so that all of us can grow together in our quest to reach all the world, lest anyone should perish.

May God richly bless you!

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16

Coming To A Movie House Near You

Last week we all learned of the massacre in a movie theatre in Colorado. The shooting at the midnight screening of the latest Batman film 'The Dark Knight Rises', resulted in twelve people killed and fifty-nine wounded. Police say that the suspect, James Holmes, acted alone and had no prior criminal record or ties to terrorism.

People are asking 'Why?' If we could just find the answer, then maybe another incident like this can be prevented, right? Then, we could relax, knowing our towns would be safer, and that we wouldn't have to go through a metal detector the next time we want to go see a movie...or a ball game....or fly........

As long as Satan is roaming the earth, with his huge army of demons that have a way of influencing people, then this type of crime will continue, and with intensity as the end times grow nearer. Which we are already in. At the present time, the efforts of Satan on earth are somewhat restrained and frustrated by the operation of the divine Restrainer (God). But with the removal of the restraint, which will occur when the true believers who have the Holy Spirit in them, are raptured into the presence of Christ, Satan will be able to achieve the full outburst of evil in the manifestation of the man of lawlessness, the Antichrist. (2 Thessalonians 2:7-8) Then all hell will break loose. Our streets will be unsafe. Unthinkable things will be forced upon us. Satan and his demons will have their heyday and wreak havoc on the innocent.

Is there anything that can be done to protect us from this doom? Yes. Believe in Jesus. Trust in Him. He, being the Son of God, shed His innocent blood on the cross to restore us from the damage that Satan caused on mankind. God, being Holy, hates sin. Jesus' death on the cross was necessary to pay the price of our sin. We were redeemed.

For God so loved the world
that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him
shall not perish but have
eternal life.
                                           - John 3:16

When you put your trust in Jesus as your Savior, you are given the Holy Spirit to be your helper. You are never alone to live your life of following Him.

For the Lord Himself goes before you
and will be with you;
He will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.
                                 - Deuteronomy 31:8

We are in the end times, and are witnessing countless forms of evil things in our culture. Families are being stricken, government officials are being corrupt and making laws that contradict God's, and even our Churches are being attacked. But we, as followers of Christ, are told to stand firm to the end.

You, dear children,
are from God and overcome ...,
because the one who is in you
is greater than
the one who is in the world.
                            - 1 John 4:4

Jesus tells us He is coming soon. (Revelation 3:11) And because we are assured of our eternal destiny by placing our trust in Him, then we can be comforted knowing He is always beside us. Through anything.

Even a movie....
