Last year I posted about a stunning sunset and how “…God is not far from anyone of us.” The same is just as true this year as last. I was not able to get a photograph of the sunset that preceded these blood red clouds but I have seen some. It was another phenomenal display of how awesome God is.

Following is a short youtube video I shot of the red clouds and a couple of digital stills.

God willingly crushed Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior on the Cross and His spilled blood is the New Covenant. There is no other way to gain salvation, period.

 

In Christ,

mystudies. I’ve recently been reading through the Gospel of John, I read Chapter Chapter 7 today so I’ll be backing up a little bit and starting over. I’m hoping that others will also do Inductive Studies of the Gospel of John for themselves, and please do feel free to comment and question in the comments section below the posts if ou have questions and I will as always endeavor to answer them for you.

See you in the near future with a study of approximately the first 5 verses of the Gospel of John.

In Christ,

Ross

I just added a new page on Inductive Bible Study the method of Bible Study that I wholeheartedly recommend!

Please check it out as this is the type of Bible Study that will not only help bring the Bible to life like never before for you but it will also help you understand the verse by verse Bible Study breakdowns I’ll be doing more of in the near future.

Here’s the link or you can access it through the menu system.

I’ve just read a very interesting article that can be found at a link at the bottom of this post in which scientists erased TIME!

That’s right some scientists at Cornell University actually erased time for 40 Trillionths of a second!

If you think that sounds like a short amount of time it is- it is an incredibly fractional amount of time. However there is one person who can hide time if you will for an even shorter period, and He promised to do that for His Bride. This person is God and that promise is known as the Rapture (Greek: Harpazo) which means to be snatched out by force. The event is described in fantastic detail in 1st Thessalonians 4:13-18– but there’s another passage that discusses just how FAST this Rapture is going to take.

1st Corinthians 15:51-53

51 Behold! I tell you a mystery.  We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.
53 For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and w this mortal body must put on immortality.

What exactly is the Twinkling of an eye? How fast is that?

I’m not able to participate in Market Night (Thursday Night downtown in Redlands California) as much anymore seeing as the Lord called me to participate in a Bible Study group that meets on Thursday nights- but I still take the time to help when I can. Last night was one of those nights I had a very enjoyable time sharing God’s Grace with those who came by the booth.

On the Aeropagus banner across the top of the booth are the words Origins-Meaning-Purpose-Destiny, I’ve found that sharing using those four words as a basis to be quite helpful. Discussing these four words objectively can help make sharing your faith a lot easier than it sometimes seems, and let’s be honest sharing ones faith can be very intimidating.

After the break I’ll take each word and break it down into a way to open the way of communication, hopefully you’ll find this post helpful and it will enable you to feel more confident in sharing your faith!
