In depth Bible study of the meaning of God’s Word.

Following the Manufacturer’s Warnings

God's Majestic Sky

Just read Psalm 19. WOW it’s beautiful. It is telling us that God’s laws, precepts, and decrees are beautiful and designed by a loving God to keep us safe and bless us. The Psalmist writes of the dependability, beauty, and warmth of the sky and sun as a metaphor for God’s creation of His laws.

As I got to the end of this Psalm, I heard on the background news that Aaron Hernandez was found guilty of 1st degree murder of his friend, Oden Lloyd. It struck me as such a stark reminder of the TRUTH of this Psalm.

Aaron Hernandez was a handsome young NFL $40mil/year star. He had all the blessings that anyone could imagine. But he decided he could leave the laws of God behind. The result is that he will now spend the rest of his life in prison.

We are always at risk when we step outside of God’s laws, yet people who keep them are often the target of scoffers. We’ve all heard how narrow minded and “square ” Christians are. We’ve heard we should loosen up and have more fun!

When a pilot gets into a plane there’s a manufacturer’s warning that says not to climb to steeply or fast or the aircraft will stall out and crash. The pilot, thinks,”Good to know!” He/she does not think, “Oh that boring ol’ manufacturer just wants to keep me from having fun! What a buzzkill!”

But when it comes to life, some people want to take the place of the manufacturer and be their own Gods, leaving the manufacturers warnings behind. Our prisons are not full because too many people follow the laws of God. Many only learn this hard lesson after they have tried to be their own God and make up their own rules. By that time, the may lose their freedom for life…just like Aaron Hernandez, and so many like him.

God has given us rules because He loves each and every one of us and wants to keep us safe. His words are the Manufacturer’s Warnings so our lives don’t stall out and crash.

May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart
be pleasing in your sight,
Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

#RevOnTheStreets Pastor Rick Cole goes homeless to raise awareness, understanding and funds to bring the homeless into warmth this winter.
#RevOnTheStreets Pastor Rick Cole goes homeless to raise awareness, understanding and funds to bring the homeless into warmth this winter.

I’m so proud of my Pastor Rick Cole. He is a great leader for compassion in Sacramento. This week he has gone to live on the streets with the homeless to get to understand their needs better and to raise funds for transporting them to churches for warmth and fellowship on cold winter nights. He is raising awareness for the  when local churches will host the homeless as our guests.

So I was delighted to go down to interview  Pastor Rick on the streets today. As you can see in the picture , a few more folks had the same idea.

He also was visited by Pastor Ray Johnston @RayJohnston of Bayside Church in Granite Bay. Pastor Johnston said he came because “Pastor Rick called him out yesterday. And he continued,”Pastor Rick, his father, and Capital Christian Church have always led the unleashing of compassion in Sacramento”,and he needed to support him.

Then Pastor Johnston presented Pastor Rick with a check for $13,000 for the THEN….He challenged pastors across this region to take the ICE BUCKET challenge, or give $1-$5 per church congregation member to the cause ‪#‎RevOnTheStreets‬.

Pastor Rick’s last 7 days and 6 nights on the streets among the Sacramento homeless have brought in donations of over $80,000 for bringing people in out of the cold this winter.

It is important to note that the funds are for transportation and security. The participating churches for all donate sleeping space, dinners, breakfasts, snacks, and great fellowship to these guests at no charge.

God bless Pastor Rick for putting himself in this position to become more sensitive to the needs of the people he described as, “precious people who are in a tough spot”. He is also raising the nations awareness of this problem by making such a powerful stand for compassion toward the homeless!

Pastor Rick says he is thinking about staying on the streets for the full 2 weeks, even if he reaches the fundraising goals. He wants to learn of the pain and circumstances first hand, by living among it

. Please keep him in prayer!!

End Times Bible Prophecies & Today’s World : #2

Boundaries of Bible Promise Land compared to today’s tiny Israel

Gods Relationship With Israel

To see why Israel, a tiny nation no bigger than the state of New Jersey, one 19th the size of California, is always on the front page of the news and central to #EndTimes prophecy, we must look at God’s relationship with Israel. If we just look at the proportion of the book of Genesis devoted to this relationship, we can see it is of utmost importance to God. Only two chapters of that book are devoted to the whole creation of the world. One chapter covers the fall of man. Eight chapters cover thousands of years from creation to the time of Abraham. Thirty-eight chapters deal with God’s relationship with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the progenitors of the Jewish nation. God doesn’t waste any words in the Bible. He emphasizes what is important to Him.

Clearly Abraham had a beautiful love relationship with God, and trusted Him totally. God found Abraham utterly obedient and faithful. For this reason He made an amazing promise to him. Genesis 15-17 documents God’s covenant which changed his name from Abram to Abraham, meaning the father of many nations. God promised Abraham the possession of the land he was on and much more. He also promised the continuation of his covenant to Abrahams descendants and their descendants, and that they would be His children into eternity.

After that covenant, the Children of Israel (COI) had times of devotion alternating with great times of rebellion against God. Through the prophet Ezekiel (37) God told the Jewish nation they would be disciplined for 430 years. They were to be scattered and suffer at the hands of others throughout the world. Soon they were conquered by the Babylon (which is Baghdad today) and taken as servants. For 70 years they were held . When they were released, many wanted to stay.

The continued rebellion against God caused the exile to be multiplied by 7. Bible scholars have done the math for centuries and come up with the year 1948. On May 14, 1948 the UN dissolved the British hold over the land that is Israel, the United States recognized Israel as a sovereign state, and on May 15, 1948 Israel declared independence. With this restoration of the Jewish state, many prophecies were fulfilled in a 24 hour timeframe, which scripture said would be done in 1 day.

Studying prophecy is amazing when you realize thousands, if not millions, of people cooperate to make it happen, most who have never read the Bible. God gave us free will to either choose or reject him, because He wants a real love relationship with His children. He is patient, wanting all to be saved. But regardless of what we do, God will bring His prophecies into being, as they foretell of His ultimate victory over evil and his eternal love for His children.

The redemptive sacrifice of Christ on the cross, grafted all believers into the same family of God. This is why Christians who know this will always support their brothers and sisters in Israel. Paul tells us in Romans 15:27 “For if the Gentiles have shared in their (the Jews) spiritual things, they are indebted to minister to them also in material things.” As far back as Genesis 12:3, God says, “I will bless them that bless you (the Jews) and curse him that curse you; and in thee shall all nations of the earth be blessed.”

Tomorrow we will look at a BIG picture prophecy from Daniel that is also an amazing view of the accuracy of #EndTimes prophecies. God bless!! HUGS!

Please continuing praying for this series. Many people would like to distract me!!

End Times Bible Prophecies & Today’s World: #1



Hearing of the massacre of Christians in Iraq, I had to go to google and look. I don’t dare post the atrocities I saw, the worst of which was a distraught father holding his headless daughter, still in her little flowered puff sleeve dress. There are not words bad enough to describe our reactions and feelings about such evil. How can any human being commit such horror against another innocent human being?

The truth is, we are seeing the revving up of the evil God’s Word tells us about that will happen in Satans last ditch effort to rule the world forever. There has been a spiritual war waging around us in this world since Satan declared war on God. As we see the spread of all types of unspeakable sin and evil in the world, nothing can come close to what ISIS is doing in Syria and IRAQ. ISIS has surpasses the brutality of Hitler and stepped up evil in a game changing way!

It is time for us all to dig into scripture. End times prophecy is the only HOPE for mankind when we see these evil signs. We study these prophecies to be well informed and standing watch, to teach our loved ones, and to have hope in our own hearts for the future. We still fight evil where we see it, but we know its days are numbered.

This is not an easy topic to discuss because it is fraught with controversy. Even Christian Scholars disagree on what is meant by certain scriptures. However there is plenty known and clear to bring great comfort at times like this. I will not be engaging in argument here, just putting out the facts that are clear and explaining as much as possible, the areas that are controversial.

The fact is, God purposely made these scriptures obscure. Everyone tries upsidedown and backwards to calculate scriptural time indicators for Jesus’ return. But Jesus, himself , told us,  “About that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.”(Matthew 24:36)Bible scholars who have gotten carried away with their own brilliance and spiritual superiority have occasionally publicized a date for the End. Well we are all still here and they have discredited themselves by ignoring clear scripture.

I have always avoided this subject to avoid the controversy. But this week I thought of Queen Esther. She was reluctant to go to King Xerses when her cousin Mordecai told her that the king’s best friend Haman was evil and was plotting to annihilate the the entire Jewish population. It could mean Esther’s life to speak to her King without being invited, and she would have to divulge her hidden Jewish heritage.

As she hesitated, Mordecai said these most power words, “If you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther4:13) The result was that through prayer, fasting, and courage, Esther saved the Jewish nation and is still celebrated for it today.

As we sit warm and comfortable in our safe homes, the words of Mordecai ring true to me today. God has placed us in a position to make the truth be known as we see these signs, even if there is a risk in our PC world for telling God’s truths.

So, like Queen Esther, I asked my friends to fast and pray for three days before I began to dig into Bible Prophecy for my morning devotions on Twitter. I will put daily thoughts from those devotions here on too. Feel free to send me comments or questions here or on my facebook page. Please register on this blog, so I can email you for clarification when needed. I use those comments to help me research and plan.

For today I will just define End Times as the time God says he will end evil on Earth once and for all. It is not the end of the world , as Hollywood likes to portray it. It the end of evil, which will bring an end to the world as we know it because it will end the spiritual battle. God will usher in a new word that is defined by His precepts, goodness and love.

The End of evil will be marked powerfully by the return of Jesus. Interesting to note is that the Bible has three times more prophecies about the second coming of Christ than it had about His first arrival in Bethlehem. A large part of the Bible is written prophecy. Many times people read it as though it were history, but it was written hundreds and thousands of years before the event actually happened. Next Christmas when you hear the story of the Christ child from Isaiah, remember he wrote it hundreds of years before the event.

The more you really study prophecy, the more you become convinced of the precision of the Bible. God wanted us to see the accuracy of things only He could bring about. That’s why He created a network of prophecies that describe the entire history of God’s relationship to man from the beginning of time through eternity. Today we find ourselves way down God’s historical timeline. 90%+ of Gods prophecies have come to pass just as written. These devotions will give us a chance to take a look at the #EndTimes prophecies so we can look up in expectation of our savior’s return to end the growing evil we see spreading across our world. Our faith will be strengthened! HALLELUJAH!

I AM the Vine!

More messages of God’s design for UNITY….We Are ONE!

The vine

am the vineyou are the branches. Whoever abides in me andI in him, he iis that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:4-6

What does it mean to “abide”? Many of us are more familiar with the word “abode”. We retire to our abode. It cannotes a place of cozy comfort and safety where we can sleep in peace and safety.

When Jesus invites us to abide with Him, He us using a form of the same word. He invites us to find refuge, comfort, peace, safety, and rest IN him. What a wonderful invitation.  We need only say,”YesLord” to abide IN Him! HALLELUJAH!

We Are ONE: God’s Design for Unity

Tuesday Study #GodsLOveChats 5pmPDT/8pmEDT
Tuesday Study #GodsLOveChats 5pmPDT/8pmEDT

Well here is a concept that God keeps bringing back to me. It is the idea that we are ONE IN GOD! That is a really powerful concept when you start sorting it out.

It occurred to me a few months ago that we keep asking God to fill us? At the same time we wonder if he knows where we are. We also wonder how He could know what is happening with all the millions of believers all over the world.

My conclusion…He doesn’t come INTO us…we enable ourselves to become a part of HIM through our faith in Jesus. The more I have thought about this the more right it seems.

God gives us examples to learn and become more understanding children . The examples are so close we don’t see them. A big one…The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are ONE. We can separate their unique ministries, but we cannot separate THEM.  Because they are ONE.

Jesus tells us in John 3:7 that we are born again in Spirit. We are spirit beings, but we learn and judge by the physical reality of this world. So look at our bodies. They are made of millions of cells. If one of those cells goes bad and begins to infect others …we know it! We find it! Could it be that we are somehow like a cell in the body of God the Father? That would explain how He always knows. He has sensors that alert him…by design… of every need of the millions of us.

I will begin a chat on this topic on Twitter tonight and see what scriptures my learned Bible friends can come up with either to support or contradict this premise.

What do you think? What scriptures come to mind.  I will be back to share what they say #GodsLoveChats Tuesday, 5pmPDT/8pmEDT Join us!!

Happy Mothers Day !!!

Mothers Day 2014


A Woman of Noble Character: A Woman of  God!

Proverbs 31 -Gods Shoutout to Busy Moms

She speaks with wisdom,
    and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27 She watches over the affairs of her household
    and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28 Her children arise and call her blessed;
    her husband also, and he praises her:
29 “Many women do noble things,
    but you surpass them all.”
30 Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
    but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
31 Honor her for all that her hands have done,
    and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Jesus on the 1st Holy Week: The Fig Tree

Did you know that Jesus withered a fig tree during the first Holy Week? Matt21

He saw that the tree had leaves but no fruit and He said,” Never again will you bare fruit!” and immediately the tree wither.

Astounded & amazed, the disciples asked, “How did the fig tree wither so quickly?”

Jesus answered, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only can you do what was done to the fig tree, but also you can say to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and it will be done. If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.” Matt21

WOW! What a message straight from the mouth of Jesus on the very first Holy Week. Many authors write of this event in the New Testament. That is to show us that many witnessed it. In fact thousands witnessed the miracles of Jesus! It is history, not fairy tales.

So why did Jesus do this on Holy Week. He never wasted His time? 1st it was the exact fulfillment of prophecy spoken by Jeremiah hundreds of years before. Jesus was the fulfillment of prophecies of the Old Testament.

2nd Jesus taught by powerful natural examples that would not be forgotten.
The lessons?

It is useless to not bear fruit when one has been designed to bear fruit. Our lives wither too when we give ourselves to uselessness. We miss our purpose. Through faith in Jesus and His Holy Spirit we bare the fruit in our lives we were born for!

The most important lesson…Believe in the power of your prayers IN JESUS name! He is the strength. Do not doubt! Just speak for Jesus! He delegated that power to us just days before He knew he would die!

Sacramentans will know the name of Frank Corti of Corti Brothers. Years ago he gave me the best business advice I ever received as a young entrepreneur. Frank said, “I tell my brother Gino, people think we are richer than we are, more powerful than we are, and smarter than we are. So I say,’Gino…YOU ACT LIKE IT!'” In business I have followed this advice to success for over 25 years.

Jesus during Holy week said almost the same thing to us. The difference is that through Him we really are richer, more powerful, and smarter! He is the source within us! Have confidence and claim it without doubting. That’s what He wanted to be sure of 2 days before He knew he would die on the cross. His power is delegated to believers. Handle with prayer!!
