As you may have noticed I haven’t been able to post nearly as often as I’d like to recently and this is because of the accelerated production schedule we’ve been able to enter on the Christian Film The Thief in The Night. Thanks to God’s miraculous provision thanks to the dedicated intercessory prayers of you and the films followers on Facebook The Thief in the Night on Facebook! and on Twitter The Thief in the Night on Twitter!

Tonight I thought I’d share the two latest posters.

The first features an atmospheric shot of Christina Flemming as Grace.

God Bless,

Ross

My friend writer/director Daniel Medina asked me to become part of the cast for The Thief in The Night (TTiTN) around last October and it has been a long struggle to get the film out of pre-production and into Production. The main problem was with casting which is difficult on a good day and sometimes things just happen that are unexpected- such as people having to drop out for totally legitimate reasons. Such is film making.

Daniel had begged me not to cut my hair before production this was in December, I agreed and it was growing strong until three days ago.

Recently casting calls went out to local college campuses and the final parts on the cast were filled.

Well to cut a long story short we’re starting to film tomorrow and in this post I’m including two Behind the Scenes pictures of myself before and after my transformation into my final look.

Check them out after the break!

Hello everyone, I’m sorry this took so long to get online but I’ve been putting it off to be honest because I wanted to be sure to get it right. Just today I realized that I should simply get it up, as God has already prepared the hearts of those who are going to read it and find perhaps some more clarity and depth to the Word than they realized. I hope this ongoing study blesses you as much as it does me.

How I’ll Break Up Each Study

A short word is needed to clarify how I’ll arrange each study even though it might in the end seem exceedingly obvious. Basically I’ll take a section of scripture generally no longer than 7 verses and I’ll put the whole scripture at the top of the study. After this I’ll then break it down one verse at a time with the notes following each individual verse. Finally I’ll do a recap of the most important things we’ve learned from the study of this section of scripture.

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 He was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

(All scripture quotations are from the ESV- English Standard Version of the Bible).

So let’s get to it! Follow me after the break!

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,

Ross

P.S. More Awesome “God Shots” coming soon!

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!

Yeah this has been one that’s for certain.

I’d like to apologize to my readers for being so very silent and only posting new videos when I have updated the blog. This was

certainly not intentional, I simply have been swamped with a million projects and am almost constantly working on one thing or another.

I will be returning to a more active blogging schedule soon.

Praise God of the gift of His Son.

This is the time of year when we need to remember our Lord and Savior, the Messiah, Jesus Christ.

Inspirational Bible Verses

I thought it high time that I finally share some more of my poetry on here on the BibleRunner and I can think of no better reason to write my first poetry post, in a long time, then about Psalm 23.

I wrote this verse on Psalm 23 for a book that my Mum is putting together, since we are working on a different edit of the verse for that publication, one that I feel differs significantly from the original you are about to see I have chosen to post the original here. The story behind this verse is that I was asked to write the 23rd Psalm from the perspective of my time being homeless and living on the street by Grace through Faith.  (Technically I am still homeless in that I am living with a Brother in Christ in his place by his grace).

So last week I sat down to finally take a good long look at the 6 verses of the 23rd Psalm to break it down, and I wrote the first of many drafts. Yesterday God brought me back to it again with the unconventional, and daunting proposal, of writing it more as a traditional Psalm than a poem.  I’m humbled to share that psalm/poem with you today.

I’ve numbered the verses of my poem so that you can tell where each verse of the original Psalm is broken down. I hope you find peace as I share with you: When I’m Walking the Streets.
