The BAD GUY


The "bad guy"



The "bad guy" isn't the other guy

Our enemy isn't the "rich guy" or the minority that "looks different" or "lives different"! It is not the left or right! Our enemies aren't the protestant or Catholic or even the "Muslim."

With shootings like the most recant night cub shutting, evil raises it's or “his” ugly head. I to try to make sense of all of it, the truth is we can't make sense of “evil”!

In an effort to make sense of it some blame God, in the case of the shootings others blame “guns” (If there wasn't any guns, there couldn't be killings by guns) Sadly before guns were invented mankind found even more heinous way to maim and kill one another.

If you take one step, God will take two


God will take Two

If you will take one step, God will take Two

In St. Luke 19 we see Zacchaeus just out of curiosity climbed a tree to see this man Jesus of Nazareth some call Christ , the Messiah or Savior. Let me point out the Scripture tells us that Zacchaeus was short (Vrs.3) so it took him some effort to get through the crowd and then some struggle to climb the tree. Jesus passing by looked up and said “I must stay at your house” knowing that Zacchaeus was only curios yet put out much effort Jesus made Himself part of his life.

Why do the heathen rage


“Why do the heathen rage”

1. Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
    The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed . . . Psalm 2 King James Version (KJV)

    BREAKING NEWS:

    A shooting during a gaming event at a popular shopping center in Jacksonville, Fla., killed two people and wounded several others before the gunman killed himself, investigators confirmed.
    11 people were transported to hospitals with injuries, including nine with gunshot wounds.

    Passion Week: "it is finished"

    Day Seven

    Every thing is quiet behind the stone in front of the tomb, Jesus must be confined securely, death is assured ! ! !

    Lots of stuff died on the cross, “Faith”, “hope”, “son” and “savior”   like Jesus said, “it's over!”


    Yours in the Life and Death of Jesus,

    The Passion: Day Six

    Day six
             * looking beyond * the “CROSS”

         Remember Jesus has been in custody now for all night, 1 trial before Caiaphas, Jesus is held over for trial. The whole Sanhedrin is gathered before sun up for a second trail, so the full Sanhedrin declares Jesus of Nazareth a Blasphemer! (Matt.26:65)
    Peter denies “he knows Jesus”!
    A third trial at sun-up Jesus is declared guilty of Blasphemy worthy of death.
    Jesus sent to Pilate a “forth” trial.

    Passion week: day Five

    Day Five Thur
    Staring down the Old Rugged Cross.

    The Plot thickens - Passover is ready

    Like Jesus we shouldn't get distracted with time lines or days for feasts but keep our eyes on the “Cross.” What is important here is God's Plan!
    It included the betrayal, the institution of Christ Communion, the Cross and the coming Resurrection!
    This is also the time Jesus washed the disciples feet, the prayer of agony in Gethsemane and His ultimate arrest.

    You God, we glorify; Have mercy on us, according to your unfailing love.

    Preparing for the Cross

    day four 

        All Israel prepares a paschal lamb or a kid of a year old, Exo. 12:5 says it must be “an unblemished Male” on the tenth day of the month until the 14th day. Our pastor just preached on this, Jewish tradition says they would bring the lamb into their homes, clean it up, keep it till the day of the “Sacrifice.” It was special to them, it was the best they had!

    Not much is said in the New Testament about Jesus and the disciples activities on this day. But we do know that in this silence in scripture, Gods plan was still in action!

    Looking toward Via Dolorosa

    Tuesday – day three

    Looking toward Via Dolorosa

    Departing Bethany again on the 3 day they pass by the orchard on the way to the temple; And Peter remembered and said to him, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered." (Mark 11:21) Jesus used the teachable moment to encourage the disciples faith. While at the temple the scribes and elders challenge Jesus' authority. Leaving the temple Jesus taught with many “parables” as they returned again to Bethany.
    The betrayal begins: Then Judas Iscariot, who was one of the twelve, went off to the chief priests in order to betray Him to them.
