An Inconvenient Truth
"A Prophet In The Making"

Take Me To Post Comment Form


I'm awakened at 4:30 in the morning with the Holy Spirit whispering the following words in my ear, "If a man ask thee to walk a mile with him, walk two." I quickly set up in the bed, and reached for my Bible. Sweetly nuzzled within THE BEATITUDES, is a verse overlooked, or maybe misunderstood. It's in the book of Matthew 5: 38-42, entitled: "Jesus Teaches About Revenge".

I want to focus of verse 41, "If a soldier demands that you carry his gear for a mile, carry it two miles." In Roman times a man could have worked all day, his family waiting for him to come home, and suddenly be seized by a Roman soldier to carry a heavy load. Recall the man of Cyrene, Simon who was compelled by the Romans to carry the cross of Jesus? (Matthew27:32)

No one likes to be made to do someone else's work, in addition to their very own! However, according to God's word, we're to do it, and with a cheerful attitude! Yikes! Proverbs 25: 21-22, says, "If your enemy is hungry, give him bread to eat, thirsty-drink, for you will heap coals of fire on his head, and the Lord will reward you." I realize that's easier said, than done!

As Christians, we must be willing to go "above and beyond" the call of duty, for the sake of Christ. God's laws of retaliation are very different than man's laws of retaliation. An inconvenient truth, I know...yield to the Holy Spirit today and witness for yourself what He can do!!

Naked Lady!!

Giving birth is no easy task, I know. Its labor intensive pushing leaves one frustrated, exhausted, sore, and drained! God impregnates each of us with our purpose in life, and it's up to us to "birth" it through PRAYER. However, Satan has attempted to abort what God has implanted by ...

Magical Diet Pill

I chuckled this morning, as I listened to the advertisement on the television. The ad suggested that the consumer could take a pill to lose weight. They go a step further and claim that a "CHANGE OF LIFESTYLE" is not necessary for one to reach their desired goal! Are you ...

Government Cover-Up?

deWayne did his best to comfort me, as I was visibly shakened by the nightmare that left me sobbing. This dream was different. A dream with no color, only black and white. A dream that felt so cold, it still gives me chills when I think about it. I thought ...
