KING DAVID'S ERRORS
2 Sam 11:1-3 (KJV) And it came to pass, after the year was expired,
at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and
his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the
children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried still at
Jerusalem. And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose
from off his bed, and walked upon the roof of the king's house: and
from the roof he saw a woman washing herself; and the woman was very
beautiful to look upon. And David sent and inquired after the
Here we see the beginning account of David's fall to lust. Reading
closely, one can see why. His mistake has five areas of error.
HIS FIRST AREA OF ERROR:
1) ~David let others fight his battles for him.
"David sent Joab, and his servants" (v. 1)
It was the time when kings go forth to battle and that meant David.
But what did David do? He sent others, Joab and his servants, to do
his fighting. He held back from his responsibility and calling to be
Israel's leader. He held himself in reserve instead of "laying it all
on the line!"
We all have had times of temptations to ease up. We all have also
experienced the naked sins of our past.
But if you recall when such
times did occur it was probably at a time when you were idle, or when
you had taken yourself out of the fight!
The fight of faith! You were
laying out, (spiritually), on a bed of ease letting others fight the
war that YOU were meant to go forth and battle!
Instead, you sent out requests to others to destroy the enemy and
besiege the gates of Hell! You asked for others to pray when you
yourself were NOT praying!
HIS SECOND AREA OF ERROR:
2) ~He became idle.
"David tarried still at Jerusalem" (v. 1)
Now the words "tarried still" do not mean "still" as in, 'At the
present time; for the present: For ex:
"But David for the present was
still at Jerusalem...." No, that's not what it's saying.
"Tarried still" means "Not in motion or moving".
"Tarried still" is the Hebrew word yashab (yaw-shab'). It means
properly, to sit down (specifically in quiet); by implication, to
dwell or to remain free from disturbance, agitation, or commotion.
Tarried still implies lack of motion or disturbance and connotes rest
or tranquillity, like a man with too much leisure time on his hands.
While his men and servants were sent to fight, he chose to lay back
on a bed of ease literally.
"And it came to pass in an eveningtide, that David arose from off his
bed,"..... (2 Sam 11:2)
David had taken himself out of the fight. He had become idle.
It seems he had nothing better to do than walk upon the roof of the
king's house.... (v. 2)
It was during this time when from the roof he saw a woman washing
herself. Apparently he got his eyes full and didn't resist but
continually looked upon her nudity because scripture lets us know
that "the woman was very beautiful to look upon" .
At first glance this may appear to only be stating how beautiful the
woman was. Not so.
The words, "to look upon", is the single Hebrew word mar'eh (mar-eh')
that comes from the primitive root word ra'ah (raw-aw'); meaning not
only to "see" as if by accident, but "to inspect, to observe, to
watch, to consider, or simply....to GAZE AT! It is a word used to
mean: "to cause to look intently at, to behold, to cause to gaze at".
So David was getting an eye full and wasn't holding himself back
because he immediately... "sent and inquired after the woman. (v. 2)
He wanted more than a look and that was David's third area of error.
Because the lust of the eye only feeds and leads to the lust of the
HIS THIRD AREA OF ERROR:
3) ~He acted on a fantasy.
"And David sent messengers, and took her; and she came in unto him,
and he lay with her;.." (2 Sam 11:4)
He acted out his fantasy and made it into a reality. That
materialized fantasy cost him dearly.
Afterwards Bathsheba was with child, which God later caused to be
sickly and took from them as a judgement. David fasted and prayed
devotedly before the child's death, but it didn't stop the
consequence of his sin. The child died anyway. Afterwards David
arose, washed himself and put on clean clothes and began eating.
People asked, "The child is dead. Aren't you going to fast and
mourn?" David simply replied that the judgement had passed and
nothing could change the results. Nothing could bring the child back.
He knew the time to fast, pray and mourn was before the child's
death......for it would be during that time that any pending
judgement might change with grace.
But actually, in truth, the time to fast, pray and mourn should have
been before the sin had occurred! But he was idle and laying around
on his bed of ease while his brothers were putting their lives on the
line in warfare!
HIS FOUTH AREA OF ERROR:
4) ~He tried to cover his sin.
"And David said to Uriah, Go down to thy house..." (v. 8)
After knowing he had made pregnant another man's wife, he tried to
cover his sin by calling the woman's husband from the field and
having him lay with her so the child would be thought to be Uriah's.
Uriah was a devoted warrior and would not allow his own pleasure in
light of what his fellow warriors were suffering. This led to the
death of the man when David ordered him to the forefront of the
hottest battle so that he would die.
HIS FIFTH AREA OF ERROR:
5) ~He thought he could get away with his sins.
"For thou didst it secretly:..." (2 Sam 12:12)
Afterwards as part of the judgement of God for the depth that David
had allowed his sin to take him, there was big trouble in his family!
"Thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil against thee out
of thine own house,..." (12:11)
One of his daughters was raped by her step brother. Her brother later
killed that step brother, and had to flee leaving David with the loss
of one son and dearly missing the other for years. Eventually the son
on the run was killed by a devoted officer of David because he had
killed one of the king's other sons.
David went into a deep mourning afterwards that lead to signs of
depression. If you read his psalms that were written during that time
you will see clearly that he had most the symptoms known today with
what could be called Major Depression or Manic Depression!
Times of crying spells, suicide thoughts, anger against his enemies
or supposed, imagined enemies, that he wanted vengeance over. He had
trouble sleeping and had lost the desire to eat or to drink. His
countenance had fallen, etc...
I once did a close study on all the "depression psalms" of David and
they all have one thing in common. He was in grief. Simply put-Lust
results in grief and family problems!
But David always clung to the grace and mercy of the Lord and gave
him the praise and thanks due!
We can learn not to follow the same areas of errors that David did.

Truth and Love
So what does the Bible say about how truth and love relate to each other? There are at least four ways of talking about this relationship.
1. Truth aims at love.
"The goal of our instruction is love from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith" (1 Timothy 1:5). Note:
instruction is not the goal, love is. Instruction is the means. It is subordinate. Truth serves love. Education serves relationships - mainly the relationship between us and God, but also between Christian and Christian, and between
us and unbelievers. The "goal" of all our education is love.
"Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful; and let us consider one another how to stir up to love and good deeds, . . . encouraging one another" (Hebrews 10:23-25, literal translation). The! aim of our "considering one another" and
"encouraging one another" is that we stir up love. We mingle insight into "the confession of our hope" with insight into "each other," and the effect is stirring each other to love. The truth of doctrine and truth of people-watching unite to aim at love.
2. Love aims at truth.
"Love does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth" (1 Corinthians 13:6). Love is glad when truth is spoken. Therefore love aims at truth. It supports truth.
"Out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote to you with many tears; not so that you would be made sorrowful, but that you might know the love which I have especially for you" (2 Corinthians 2:4). Here is an example of how love aims at truth. Paul is filled with love and it compels him to write a letter that was hard, and caused sorrow in him
and in the Corinthians. But it needed to be said. So love said it. Love speaks the truth personally and doctrin! ally.
3. Love shapes how to speak the truth.
"Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ" (Ephesians 4:15).
There is an unloving way to speak the truth. That kind of truth-speaking we should repudiate. But there is a way to speak the truth in love, and that we should seek.
It is not always a soft way to speak, or Jesus would have to be accused of lack of love in dealing with some folks in the Gospels. But it does ask about what is the most helpful thing to say when everything is considered. Sometimes what would have been a hard word to one group is a needed act of love to another group, and not a wrong to the group addressed. But in general, love shapes truth into words and ways that are
patient and gentle (2 Timothy 2:24-25).
4. Truth shapes how to show love.
"By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and observe His commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not burdens! ome" (1 John 5:2). It is not always obvious which acts are loving.
So John tells us some truth will help us know if our acts are loving. One truth test for our love
is whether we are keeping the commandments of God toward people, In other words, love cannot be cut loose from the truth of God's will. Truth shapes how to show love.
Let us pray that God will cause his love and truth to abound and mingle in us in all these ways for the glory of his truth-filled love and love-filled truth.
EMPTY INSIDE I feel so empty inside --
I feel so all alone, as I sit here in this prison cell;
I feel as though the world has passed me by,
I feel as if I'm aging before my very eyes.
I feel like yelling!!!
But I know that wouldn't do any good,
For no one would hear my cry --
Cause this cell is so thick!
I reached out to call a friend from my past,
But no one would take my call.
Why? Oh why, must I feel so empty inside --
Visiting days come and go,
But for me, it's just another day;
Cause it seems like no one comes to sees me anymore.
I don't mind not knowing what the future holds for me,
But must I be so all alone in the cold prison cell?
Is there anyone out there who cares for me?
For who I am?

Futuristic Juke Box
There was a time I was into whiskey binges and drugs really heavy. I carried an automatic piece in the front pocket of my leather jacket, with a .44 revolver in my belt.
I kept the .357 magnum in the trunk of the family car for backup. I also had an illegal sawed-off, hand-held, twelve-gauge shotgun behind my truck seat.
Another rifle, shotgun, and other loaded black powder handguns were at the house in various places, usually near the entrances of my home.
It was my intention not to go quietly. My mind was constantly geared on death, simply because I was depressed and really believed my life was at it's end.
One night I stumbled into a biker bar after a gunfight outside another bar. It wasn't much of a fight. The other guy went for his gun, but before he could pull it, I had cleared the belt with my .44 and he ran.
Perhaps it was it's 12-inch barrow that scared him, but I now see it was the Lord that kept me from killing him. He knew I couldn't shoot a man in the back.
My future looked bleak. That was my 12th fight in three years that involved gunplay. The unlucky number 13 kept coming to mind. The next gun fight might be your last. I thought.
The biker bar was rowdy as they waited for the band to play and I for a drink. I checked the jukebox for some ZZ Top.
As I stood in my leather long coat and beaver hat I noticed something strange about the titles of each song. Starting from the left, reading down, I noticed a pattern. It was as if I was reading my life in the order of the songs displayed!
I continued to read each row and envisions of past major life events began to happen in my mind's sight. They were in perfect time sequence according to the titles!
I stopped short! I wasn't even buzzed on the whiskey yet and I questioned to myself "I know I'm not stoned!"
I covered the titles with my hand. I was half way through the list. I began to sense God's Spirit upon me. It rushed over my head until I felt flushed all over!
"Lord, Why? Why me? What have I ever done that is deserving of you? Why won't you just leave me alone!" I whispered.
I paid the waitress for the drink I had ordered and downed it instantly, ordering another. I kept my back turned to the jukebox. Waiting. Waiting for another shot of liquid delusion. I downed my second whiskey.
The bourbon and the noise of the bar drowned my thoughts for a moment.
The crowd was expecting me to jam out some blues in the band, but I felt more like jamming someone's head with a hammer fist.
I became very aggravated at my surroundings from the loud mouths and wannabes I heard and saw.
I started to leave but as I stood in the doorway I knew I had to read to that final song!
Facing the box, I forced myself to read the next title! It read, "Why Me Lord?"
The title sequences were now in the present!
The awesome reality hit me that my future may be displayed! God was dealing with me, strangely, through a futuristic jukebox!
I realized at that moment I was only running from the walk. The walk with God he wanted me to run! I was a backslid, gun-toting preacher.
However hard I tried to deny it in my crazy life, the calling only got stronger.
The courage came over me to face the fears of my troubled life and I read all the titles to the end. They all were love songs, except for the last one!
I was encouraged to step up higher with Him and I made my first step by leaving the bar.
What did the last song read?
The last song title was,
"Stair Way To Heaven".

Subject: ~FALLING OATMEAL BOXES
In the 70s, a few ladies at the church I attended sported buns wrapped around oatmeal boxes!
I sat behind oatmeal boxes on numerous occasions.
Most of these ladies were very dignified with stiff neck movements, I assumed from being afraid that the boxes would be shaken loose.
I started secretly praying for this bunch. I prayed that they'd lose the boxed tradition and get real.
Not that I really cared what box they wore on their heads. They weren't embarrassing me with their traditional styles. If a sister felt cool in an oatmeal box, that was fine with me! Wear one sister! was my attitude.
I was just concerned that their worrying about a hair being out of place might keep them from a much needed break through, and because some of those ol' boys that followed me to worship service were into LSD.
I loved everybody in the Lord, but I thought..."Lord Jesus, please don't let the last vacant seats in the house be behind them if any friends on drugs are with me?"
One Wednesday night I brought some old drug buddies to church with me.
The usher guided us to the only vacant seats and sure enough, wouldn't you know it, they were behind the, "How high can you get yours?" sisters!
When we moved, they moved. When we scooted and moved again, they scooted and moved! Right, then left, back and forth in-sink.
Suddenly one of the more zealous ones let out a whoop as her hand went in the air and her head jerked. A bobbi pin, duck tape, or something...what ever it was that held it up...fell! A lob of hair dislodged causing a huge gap!
One of the two visiting friends started snorting; coughing; snickering; until finally I thought he was calling on God because he suddendly let out short, loud bursts of, "OH my god! Oh my god!"
The freaked out friend could not contain himself and it caused every head to turn! He was quickly escorted by two ushers from the sanctuary because he couldn't stop laughing and snorting.
I followed as he kept repeating, "Tell me Scotty, that she doesn't have an oatmeal box on her head? Tell me! TELL ME the Quaker Oats Man wasn't smiling at ME! TELL ME MAN! Please tell me! Please! SOMEBODY HELP ME!" he screamed!
I mean, I've seen a picture of a chicken come alive on the wall, scratching, clucking, pecking, and eventually flying, that I didn't remember hanging, only to discover later..."Mmmmm, there are no chicken pictures on my wall!"
So I can identify how the thought of seeing an oatmeal box pop out of a bun with the Quaker Oats Man's face smiling back at ya can feel, when paper acid is going through the blood stream! He can be frightening!
"Ok Lord. Enough! Please rattle and shake this place with a move of God!" became my prayer!
Not many days later, it happened. Brother Echoes broke out in a run! "Yes Lord! Yes!" I thought. When Brother Echoes ran, something always broke in the move of the Spirit!
Sometimes it'd be tongues and interpretations; sometimes prophesy; sometimes a sinner would repent on the spot, or bondage might be broken off a brother struggling with lust! Sometimes a victory march occurred!
But something ALWAYS happened when Brother Echoes ran!
This time oatmeal boxes shook!
Brother Echoes jumped on a pew near the front entrance, straddled the tops and ran across the tops of the pews towards the pulpit!!!
His path just happened to get tripped up between the breakfast-brunch club!
His left leg went up in the air as his hands circled like windmill blades clockwise.
It came back and the right leg went up as his hands circled counter clockwise, all the while speaking in tongues.
Suddenly he blurted out in English, "Father God break the spirit of traditional pride! In Jesus name!"
He let out a yelp and then finished running the remaining 120 pew tops!
At the whisk of his passing, people started weeping, shouting, dropping to their knees and leaving.
A few started running too.
I was one of them.
My brother "Baby Rock" Mark was another.
Danny Rolling, the future Gainesville Florida mass murderer was also one that ran, (but that's another story. ~'Holy Rollin' With Danny Rolling')
Within a few minutes after the Holy Spirit fell, the brunch sisters came unglued as they began to quake, squall, and dance until their hairdos came down and the oatmeal boxes fell.
I actually did see the "Quaker Oats Man"!
There wasn't a generic box among them!
For some reason the thought of, "Piggly Wiggly One Minute Oats" ...came to mind. "Why did they feel the need to use Quaker Oats?" I thought.
"Was that brand considered more holy among the sisters...being Quaker's?"

LIFE IN THE BIG CITY....... Today as I walked through the big and lonely city, I saw many sad things. It's really sad to see so many people with problems. All in one day I saw so many hurting people. There are so many homeless people and what is even sadder than that, is that there are so many children without homes. It made me feel so bad, I wish I could take every person and help them but it's really not possible to help every person; and, some of them don't even want to be helped. Even so, we should never stop trying.
If this world survives until I get older, I hope it is allot different by then. I hope if I have kids they won't have to live where they'll always be scared of being hurt or the Ozone but unfortunately, they probably will. Maybe they will be more responsible towards the world than we are. If not, our word will be destroyed.
I pray that all the young people growing up today would wake up and see that we have to be more concerned than were past generations for the sake of our futures as well as for the many unborn children being murdered everyday by abortion.
We have to change or be destroyed forever!

CHRISTIAN BIKER'S LAST WILL
Bury me cheerfully in God's green earth
from out of a pick up instead of a hearse. Save the expense of roses and reefs
and spend the money for someone to eat.
Wrap me in a blanket instead of a box
so in my passing a tree will keep.
Bury me barefoot without any socks
and give my boots for another one's feet.
Pastor, save your sermon
you might speak over me,
and in love, deliver it instead
to those on the street!
Shed a tear if your heart affords
if that will bring you peace,
but I'd rather you rejoice in the Lord
that my soul has been released!
Rev up your engines
let them be heard,
but ride safely in Him
to spread God's word!
Check on my family from time to time.
Please be generous and kind?
And may His mercies be with each of you, until it's your time!

Wow, Praise God!
I posted this short study tonight that the Lord showed me 2 years ago, and it holds a classic awesome message!
blessings to you and yours,
~AGAN, AGAN and AGAN
A scribe came to Jesus and asked, "What is the first, (or greatest), commandment of all?"**
Jesus replied that the Lord is one and that we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. (In this order), and namely to love our neighbor as ourselves.
The scribe repeated what he heard as he had preceived it saying, "And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the soul and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings, etc.
He had it out of order to which Jesus seeing that he had perceived by reason of intellectual understanding, or by reason in the narrower sense, replied, "Thou art not far from the kingdom of God." Which means he was still a ways off! Howso?
The word Jesus used for 'mind' was, "dianoia, "(dee-an-oy-ah), which is the exercise of the faculty or disposition by the spirit. It is from a primary preposition denoting the channel of an act with the grounds of understanding in the spirit, good or bad.
The scribe used the word, 'understanding', which is the Greek word, "sunesis", (soon-es-is). It means: A mental putting together; To put the perception with the the thing perceived, that is, the man of understanding: To act piously!
It comes from a word that means: To set or bring together in a hostile sense, used of combatants!
So, not only did he have the order out of place but, his perception of what Jesus meant by the term 'mind' was totally different!
Jesus spoke of a higher realm of understanding. He placed the heart and soul first, then the mind and strength!
Man places the heart and mind first, then the soul and strength! The trouble with this is: heart and mind first leaves a question and room for doubt in the soul! If there is a question in our soul we hesitate to act with our strength!
There are too many believers in Christ living only in the realm of heart and mind when Jesus calls his own to live with heart and soul, knowing this opens the right understanding for us to act!
Others, (gasping for moral understanding), struggle- wandering out of the way in error because they live in the mind and strength realm!
There are some, a few...that live in the heart, soul, mind and strength realm! They give it all in the proper understanding and they are true worshippers of God, knowing the scriptures and the power of God, but many seclude themselves from their neighbors!
There is yet another group: Those living in the soul and strength realm!
Six represents the number of man, thus there are six types, levels or realms of "religious" people on this planet! Jesus wants to bring believers to the 7th level!
The heart itself cannot truly embrace any belief without the aid of at least one of the other factors of soul, mind or strength. Considering this, observe below:
1)Heart + Soul believers- Earnest intent, new converts needing understanding and active experience. (unbalanced)
2)Heart + Mind believers- Zealous but leaning to own understanding, sometimes acting piously. (unbalanced)
3)Mind + Strength believers- Humanistic; Religious works. (unbalanced)
4)Soul + Strength believers- Spiritualists, psychics, new wave cults. (unbalanced)
5) Heart + Soul + Mind + Strength believers- True worshipers, productive in power and truth but secluded, or excluded from their neighbors! (unbalanced)
6) Soul + Mind believers- Complaisant, lazy faith, without works. (unbalanced)
What Jesus is concerned in doing is bringing his church into a true balance in the seventh realm of believing trust; a perfected church without spot or blimish. It is simply to love God with whole heart, soul, mind, strength, AND to love thy neighbor as thyself, just as he said!
We must not forget the second principal of the greatest commandment. Thou shalt love thy neighbor means, "To love in a social or moral sense. To welcome, to entertain- to be fond of - to love dearly, contented at or with. It is the Greek word, "Agapao", a kin to another word, "Phileo" which means, "Friend." Agapao is from the word, "Agan", meaning "MUCH!"
How are we to love? "Agan, agan and agan."

CIRCLES OF TIME......... If you've ever sat and drawn circles on a piece of paper, you'll
find it easy to relate to what I'm about to say....
Looking back over my life, it seems as though thus far, time has
been a maze of circles running over and over one another....
Childhood and the lack of patience over "growing up" that
Adolecence and the "feeling all grown up" but actually being just
a little girl.....
Womanhood and all that comes with it.....marraige, kids,
responsibility, work, end of marraige, raising the kids alone, more responsibility and more work........
Kids are growing now and they too are impatient to "grow up".....
Yet, they still chase you around the house -- everyone shouting at
once and, of course, all calling your name!.....
Seems the longer I'm alive, the more circles there are in my life
all running over and through one another until you want to shout at
the guy holding the pencil of your life........TIME OUT!!!!!!
Now there's a man in my life once again and it's good to feel
secure and loved, to feel like a woman once more. But even this
wonderful turn of events will bring with it it's own circles....
I'd like to find a quiet place in the woods to sit by a big old
tree and just sit and sit until I feel like getting on with things
but then a really terrible thought........if you cut a tree down,
and look inside, you'll see it's life is told by the circles in the
trunk..........................................oh well round and
round we go and where we stop nbody knows (except the pencil

MY RECEIVING OF MY LORD JESUS CHRIST This is what it took to open my eyes:
I was just arrested for 5 armed robberies --
I now face life in prison!
I am now thrown into a world I don't quite understand.
It's a world where I must fight to survive.
It's six months now that I've been locked in this cage!
It's starting to hit me,
I'm not going anywhere, the drugs are out of my system now...
I now have to face the reality of where "my life" is going --
It did hit me!!
"I'M GOING TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE IN PRISON!!"
Every day here in this county jail, I have to fight for
one thing or another...
One day for my food, one day for my shoes,
the next for the color of my skin!
I'M TIRED OF ALL THIS VIOLENCE AROUND ME,
WHERE DO I TURN?
I was going to Chapel in that jail once in a while,
I didn't understand what the Lord was all about --
I thought the Lord was just a household word.
(HOW WRONG I CAME TO BE)
I truly didn't understand what the Lord was all about --
That is until I started going to Bible Study Classes
being held in the Chapel.
But even then, I didn't get the full extent of my
I remember this one guy who came around the cell block and
shared what Jesus had done for his life --
his name was Mark --
every time he came around he would talk with me awhile...
He'd been into drugs too, and the Lord had brought
him out of that!
This is how I came to know
MY LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS...
It had to be the lowest day of my life in the jail.
This guy -- 24 years old, I think, was trying
to kill himself...
He took one of the blades out of the razor and
started cutting his arms up and down --
BLOOD WAS EVERYWHERE!
Then as he was going to swallow the blade...
I was lucky, I was able to talk him out of it...
I got the wing cop to take him out to the hospital.
THANK YOU JESUS...HE MADE IT!
About an hour after that, I got myself into another fight...
this time over helping that guy and my nose was
broken once again.
I WAS AT THE LOWEST POINT OF MY LIFE, I FELT SO ALL ALONE!
After all that, it hit me...
The cell doors are locked down for the night...
The usual loudmouths are yelling up and down
all the cell blocks...
It was right then that I got down on my knees and asked
to come into my life...
"I don't want to live like this anymore...
I don't want this noise around me!
I want you JESUS, as LORD over m life,
You are my SAVIOR, JESUS, I know you died for me.
I want you peace in my life."
You know right then everything got so quiet.
I felt the LORD strongly that night on 2N left.
And from that day on I found peace in my life,
even though I am still in prison,
I have more FREEDOM than most people who do
their own thing.
IS THAT PEACE AND FREEDOM!

September 1991 STANDING BEFORE THE JUDGE....
I had been sitting in the Superior Court for four hours anxiously awaiting a "change of custody" motion which had been set before the Judge some months before. Many people had come and gone, most simply having trial dates set, others being informed of their rights to counsel and having their hearing postponed for a couple more weeks. It was almost 12:00 noon and I was beginning to wonder what had gone wrong when I heard the Judge say, "Mulligan, well he asked for this hearing so let's bring him in."
Just then, Iooked up and saw him coming through the door which led into the courtroom from the holding tank. He was handcuffed and chained around is waist with chains running down his legs to the shackles that kept him bound at the ankles. If I didn't know any better, I would have thought this was a very dangerous person, why else would he be chained up like this? Other prisoners had been brought before the Judge that morning but none of them were even handcuffed. What was the difference? Why such harsh and unfair treatment of a man who had achieved "Full Maximum Status" within the system. A man who had started out a "Maximum Security Prisoner" and who was now being treated as though he had not changed over the last six years.
As I looked into is face, I saw the hurt and pain he was feeling which was so evident in his eyes. The usually smiling face of the man I have grown to love with my whole heart over the last year was somber. As the proceedings continued, I watched as a simple change of custody motion became an opportunity for the Judge to vent his own opinions about a man he knew absolutely nothing about except what he read on a piece of paper which told os the events leading to Harley's incarceration six years ago. Six years of remorse, filled with great pain and loneliness. Years in which the horrors of prison life had become real to Harley's life.
After witnessing several suicides and still another attempted suicide, he was driven to his knees, calling out to the Lord Jesus Christ who mercifully saves those who call upon his name. That was five years ago and Harley has grown beautifully in the Lord ever since and yet, here he was being treated as though he had not changed at all. We, as children of God know that this world and all that is connected to it is ultimately unfair and unjust. There is onl one who judges righteously and he is the one who has been given authority over the heavens and the earth -- Jesus Christ!
What happened in that courtroom simply underscored the battle that we face everyday as Soldiers in the King's army. The enemy will continue to single us out and attempt to defeat us -- hitting us where we are most vulnerable and at our weakest moments but praise God that the strength of our precious Lord is made perfect in our weakness, so that we may continue the fight until that day which is ever so near when Jesus comes again!
I praise the holy name of Jesus as I reflect upon the fact that on the day that Harley stands before the "Righteous Judge" he will be told "Well done my good and faithful servant,enter into my rest."
Isn't it wonderful to know that we have passed from death to life by virtue of the blood of Jesus which covers our lives!
I love you Harley......
OCTOBER 1991 ALL CLOSED IN That is the way it is when you live "my life" inside this prison.
You know it may sound funny, I thought of myself as a tough man but I can't seem to stand the pain anymore!
The pain of living on the edge, you just don't know what's going to set the next man off, or how far he will push you -- pressure from all sides!!
What's your limit? How much can you put up with? For each has his own breaking point, that's a fact!
I truly believe that many times I have passed mine; and, the only answer that I have is that my Savior Jesus Christ is holding me together...Cause on my own, I am nothing.
I know this to be true, cause when I was lost, without my Savior, I was put so deep in this prison system, I had to look up to see the floor!
Prison was all I knew, at one point I had a 71 year sentence. No one even knew this! For what is left of my family, they don't really understand; for what I am feeling, you have to live it to feel it......
For when I do call my family, right from the beginning of my time, all I hear is "When you come home you have to stay out of trouble, you can't do this or that!"
I've learned my lesson a long time ago, you can believe that!!
Why in the world do these people want to keep chains on me?
Why must I be closed in like this?
When will my dues be paid? It seems like everyone wants me to be what they want me to be.
Well I know I'm leaving here, I just don't know when..
All my friends I once knew have passed away, nothing I can do about that!
I spent one thousand eight hundred and twenty five days in max custody, in a prison cell no bigger than aa small walk in closet! The past year I've spent in dorms where radios play - 15 or 20 at a time - with all different music...........
The loudness can drive a man mad!
But again my Savior has kept me together..........Now, my Savior has put a special lady in my life.
At times, I feel I can't do anymore time ....
I know I've begged, stole, and borrowed in my lifetime but I also know that I've been forgiven for it!..
But can you answer...Why in the world would anyone close me in and put chains on me?
Babe I just want to be free to do the things that the other people do......
I want to be free to know that what I do is alright...
I want to be with you so I can be easy, just like on a Sunday morning.......
Subject: [Christian-Bikers] MORAL EVIL (the most important message I may ever write)
This is important for all believers.
I seldom ever send out Special Notice posts. Please read.
"MORAL EVIL", by Chaplain Scott
Thursday Nov. 13, 2003 5:06 AM CST.
We all have been exposed to the immoral evil and the ways of the
world to some degree or another, yet when many first come to the
saving knowledge of Christ with true understanding and acceptance
many become dismayed or at least a little disturbed with the moral
evil they begin to be exposed to.
Moral evil? I thought all evil is immoral?
Is there such a thing as
a "moral evil?" You bet there is!
It involves a deception surrounding the idea of moral activities
going on "in the name of Christ" where the misguided people of God,
(whom should be seeking moral ways), become caught up in traditions
that were not established by the Lord but by men whom become esteemed
in the eyes of God's people because of their personalities or talents-
or whatever! Many of the people of God like such when they are
hearing and receiving certain matters that actually can fall
under "delusions", for although many mean well, many whom are caught
up in "moral evil" are receiving natural benefits they find hard to
In such forms of apparent godliness they are actually denying the
power of God, and thus it pampers to the "flesh" and to the things
that entertain the flesh and human spirit, which God's people can
grow to like!; as you will see, as is recorded in
"and my people love to have it so:" (Jer 5:31 KJV)
These moral evils involve preaching, teaching and prophesying from
the human spirit, and not necessarily from God's Spirit, saying "Thus
saith the Lord when God in fact has not said thus.
Jer 5:12-13 records: They have belied the LORD, and said,
" It is not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see
sword nor famine:" And the prophets shall become wind, and the word
is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them. ( KJV)
That word, "belied" is kachash (kaw-khash'); and means 'to be untrue,
in word or deed, (to lie, feign, disown) or to disappoint, fail,
cringe: dissemble, fail, deal falsely, be found liars'.
Such are submitting themselves in a lie.
They cringe behind their
"Christian" smile with all that is required of them in order for them
to keep up their front; their feign ness of appearance that they are
Christians; or pastors; or youth leaders; or teachers -supposedly of
truth and morality; when in fact they are actually big bags of wind,
and the word is not in them! Yet they themselves say:
"God's prophets," they say, "are windbags full of words with no
divine authority. Their claims of doom will fall upon themselves, not
us!" (Jer. 5:13 TLB)
These involved in moral evil are many and Jesus warned His disciples
of this day saying:
"For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall
deceive many. (Matt 24:5 KJV)
In this He did not imply to mean many would come saying "they" were
actually Christ, (though some have done just that), but that many
would be saying, "Jesus is Lord, and Jesus is Christ" and they
present such in the name of the Lord Jesus but they are actually
For starters, they will act exactly as Jer. 5:13 states. They will
deny the divine authority behind the true office of the prophets in
the five fold ministry, which by doing such they in essence are
denying the power of God in their disallowance to believe God will
and can continue His hand in such, when in fact scripture bears out
that He will!
As well, they will deny the power of God's anointing upon such
office, that such signs of the communication of the Spirit
in God's ability to allow consecrated bearers real divine revelation,
and they will argue against such, and even say that any whom are
truly called, exercising this anointing, are in heresy or worse!
They will group any whom may claim such office into a heep with
false prophets. They don't deny the existance of the false ones, but
they do deny any true ones! Go figure?
They are walking and talking
contradictions to God's own word and are blow hards! Many even
believe that the anointing in reference to "Touch not mine anointed"
only refers to one ordained as a king over Israel, when in truth here
is NOT what i have to say but what Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown
Commentary has to say on the matter:
[The anointing is the sign of the communication of the Spirit. "Mine
anointed" are therefore those vessels of honour whom God fills with
His Spirit: the consecrated bearers of God's revelation, "in whom the
Spirit of God is," as Pharaoh said of Joseph . As the
three classes, prophets, priests, and kings, used in later times to
be anointed, so the patriarchs, to whom God revealed Himself, bare
all three offices combined, and so are termed "mine anointed." So it
shall be again in the last days (
4:14>, "the two anointed ones;" ]
(from Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown Commentary)
And even Matthew Henry made the statement: "Lastly, God's anointed
prophets are dearer to him than anointed kings themselves."
"Touch not mine anointed", (1 Chronicles 16:22 and Ps. 105:15),
involves all three classes, prophets, priests, and kings, and can
even be applied to the nation of Israel itself.
The subject of "Touch not mine anointed" did not originate with King
David. It goes way back to Genesis, with the patriarch of faith
Abraham, before David was even born, as can be seen having it's
effect in the account of ; and <20:3>; and of Jacob,
, and <34:26>, and <35:5>.
As J, F and Brown also noted:
Isaac is termed by God "a prophet."
Abraham received communications
from God in the two forms usual in prophecy, vision and dream,
15> and as Adam Clarke notes: "the title may be applied to all the
Jewish people, who were the anointed, as they were the elect and
peculiar people of God. "
And this spiritual truth is still in effect today: or else what are
we to do with the upcoming , "two anointed ones;" , whom
will have the anointing of God to even have fire come forth from
their breath.... kill them?
Yes, I'm afraid that is exactly what will occur from those heeding to
moral evil, for after their deaths they will even give gifts to one
another as if it is Christmas time! Oh such pious moral devotion!;
such brotherly love!
"Let us now give each other gifts and call it a holiday, yahooo,
we've finally killed those prophets!"
It was in God's perfect will that Israel NOT be lead by "kings" but
by the Lord God Himself, through the means of His prophets as His
voice piece, as He did when He brought them out of Egypt with Moses
being the mouth piece of God, and the presenter of God's laws, but in
time the people rose up and wouldn't have it, so God ended up making
some allowances such as was the case with Saul, and then David.
The scripture of: "Saying, Touch not mine anointed, and do my
prophets no harm" is found in 1 Chronicles 16:22 and Ps. 105:15.
"Mine anointed" is plural in the Hebrew, and is explained
by "prophets" in the next clause.
No men were to be allowed to wrong them, and even those that hated
them and would have gladly done them mischief had their hands tied!
In Gen. 35:5, we find that the terror of God was upon the cities that
were round about them, so that, though provoked, they did not pursue
after the sons of Jacob. Even crowned heads, that did offer to wrong
them, were not only checked and chidden for it, but controlled and
baffled: He reproved kings for their sakes in dreams and visions,
saying, "Touch not my anointed; it is at your peril if you do, nay,
it shall not be in your power to do it; do my prophets no harm."
Pharaoh king of Egypt was plagued and Abimelech king of
Gerar was sharply rebuked for doing wrong to Abraham.
Even kings themselves (as David himself experienced) were liable to
God's rebuke through the use of a prophet, if they did wrong.
God's prophets are his anointed, for they have the unction of the
Spirit, that oil of gladness, <1 Jn. 2:27>.
Those that offer to touch God's prophets, with design to harm them,
may expect to hear of it one way or other.
God is jealous for his
prophets; whoso touches them touches the apple of HIS eye. Even
those that touch the prophets, nay that kill the prophets (as many
did), cannot do them any harm, any real harm. Lastly, God's anointed
prophets are dearer to him than anointed kings themselves. Jeroboam's
hand was withered when it was stretched out against a prophet.
2. They were wonderfully provided for and supplied. And here
(1.) They were reduced to great extremity.
(taken from Matthew Henry's Commentary)
As those whom are caught up in moral evil speak of what will happen
to the "sinner"; to the fornicator; to the thief and murderer... such
will come upon them!
While they claim, "Your iniquities have turned away these things, and
your sins have withholden good things from you",
to others... this is exactly what will happen to THEM!
(Jer 5:25 KJV)
Those words, "Your iniquities" come from the one Hebrew word, AVON.
`Avon (aw-vone´); or `avown (2 Kings 7:9; Psalm 51:5 ) , is a
perversity, i.e. (moral) evil: that covers more ground than the wrong
found in immorality!
It is a fault or mischief based on perversity and depravity that
covers sins done in the name of morality, as well as
immoral sins, and such carries a grave consequence of judgement!
Notice that verse 27 of Jer. 5 is speaking of: "Now they are great
and rich," (TLB) in regards to the "people of God" whom are caught up
in moral evil.
The Living Bible states it this way:
28 they are well fed and well groomed, and there is no limit to
their wicked deeds. They refuse justice to orphans and the rights of
29 Should I sit back and act as though nothing is going on?" the
Lord God asks. "Shouldn't I punish a nation such as this?
30 "A horrible thing has happened in this land--
31 the priests are ruled by false prophets, and my people like
it so! But your doom is certain. (TLB)
The King James version states verse 28 as: "They are waxen fat, they
Their dresses may be long below the knee, with their hair high upon
their heads, and the men's faces may be clean shavened with white
walls around their ears, but IF in their outward appearances of
holiness they promote moral evil in perverseness -their punishment
from God will be a "horrible thing" because of the horribleness they
have helped to bring about in the earth to pervert the true gospel of
While they cry "Sinner beware!" they themselves need take heed to
what I am saying today!
I have written on many subjects, but this is perhaps the most
important and most sober message I may ever give!
A message that did not come easily, for "I" had to do some heeding
What I am speaking on is NOT concerning the unredeemed or non
believer, but it is referring to pastors, priests, true and false
prophets, teachers, decons, evangelists, missionaries and "HIS
Because say what you may, this message did not come by my willingness
to loose days of sleep, with the energy exerted that was needed to
type such, until the cramps in my shoulders ached, while half of my
own house's roof still lays bear of the shingles needed to keep the
rain from doing any more inside ceiling and floor damage BUT I cried
out to the Lord that if He wanted this said even if my own natural
house floods away with the rains, I'd say it and send it via Special
Notice, because I don't want the spiritual temple of my soul to be
caught up in any delusion, nor would I want yours to be, so I kept
asking in prayer and in thought for days, seeking God over this with
how some of you might take it.
Take it or not, He kept showing me this:
"and my people like it so!" (TLB)
The KJV reads: "and my people love to have it so:" (Jer 5:31 KJV)
"and my people love to have it so:"
"and my people love to have it so:"
"and my people love to have it so:"
"and what will ye do in the end thereof?"
(Jer 5:31 KJV).
The materialism spirit of getting worldly gain through spiritual means
has dulled many's hearing, and blinded many's eyes -of the people of
God- to pervert many away from what is
really most important.
What is really sad is that in the famous scripture reference of:
"Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth without
measure:"... it is actually speaking of hell enlarging due to
ignorant and stupid PEOPLE OF GOD!
And their once "glory" and pomp
and their once joy with rejoicement shall eventually descend into
13 Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they
have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their
multitude dried up with thirst.
14 Therefore hell hath enlarged herself, and opened her mouth
without measure: and their glory, and their multitude, and their
pomp, and he that rejoiceth, shall descend into it. (KJV)
Many a church has let THE AVON LADY in!; with the sale of God's
anointing and all the other junk that goes on!
They have "kachash-ed in on the Lord's glory", while dissembling many
from wanting to ever set foot into a church again- because of their
false obedience that causes so many to fail and to be disappointed
with even trying to attempt to live a Christian life! And so why
does the heathren rage? Crying "Hell yes!", refusing heaven?
Because of the CASHING IN ON THE GLORY OF THE LORD.... while a
multitude of backsliders are dismayed on a road to HELL!; not really
wanting to go, but heading there just the same!!
It is not the lure of the bars or the night life and the ladies of
the night, or the drugs and the alcohol and the cigarettes and the
want of wealth that has done the most damage in causing so many to be
discouraged towards Christ! NO, it is not the immoral evils so many
get burned out on, that are sending souls to HELL, BUT it is the
MORAL EVIL behind many churches -that has turned more towards sin in
this time and age, than sin itself has!
Dear God wake us up and may we shake ourselves!
For sin can only play itself out for so long - before a seeker,
desiring something better for their souls, comes to a place where
they are willing to turn to God, but when one is made to believe they
ARE turning to God, only to be slapped in the face with such feign
ness, lies and untruths, such is devastating in great disappoint to
the soul of man, in which many do not recover. And which gives others
fuel for debate and reasons they believe are justified for turning
away from God or even against God!
And instead these people begin having a revolting and a rebellious
heart; they are revolted and gone.
Gone, never to turn to God again! Gone and lost; lost to die and face
God in judgement because of false pastors; false deacons; false
Sunday school teachers; false evangelists, false apostle missionaries
AND false prophets! False prophets aren't the only ones doing the
These ones whom these "moral" leaders have turned away will
eventually loose the fear of God:
These "moral" immoral leaders AMONG GOD'S PEOPLE are CATCHING MEN!
In their traps they have snared SOULS!
24 Neither say they in their heart, Let us now fear the LORD our
God, that giveth rain, both the former and the latter, in his season:
he reserveth unto us the appointed weeks of the harvest.
25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins
have withholden good things from you.
26 For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as
he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.
27 As a cage is full of birds, so are their houses full of
deceit: therefore they are become great, and waxen rich.
28 They are waxen fat, they shine: yea, they overpass the deeds
of the wicked: they judge not the cause, the cause of the fatherless,
yet they prosper; and the right of the needy do they not judge.
29 Shall I not visit for these things?
saith the LORD: shall not
my soul be avenged on such a nation as this?
30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;
31 The prophets prophesy falsely, and the priests bear rule by
their means; and my people love to have it so: and what will ye do in
the end thereof?
(Jer 5:24-31 KJV)
The Living Bible version of Jer 5:23 lays it out pretty clear how
this process of losing the fear of God proceeds:
23 "But 'my people' have rebellious hearts; they have turned
against me and gone off into idolatry.
Though I am the one who gives
them rain each year in spring and fall and sends the harvesttimes,
yet they have no respect or fear for me.
1) First there is the rebellious heart,
2) Secondly the anger and the turning against God,
3) Thirdly, since there is no where else they can go, idolatry takes
4) until fourthly, they loose the fear of God, with disrespect!
Because the Holy Spirit, once received, is leading new converts into
truth, such delusions as bartering for prayer by carnal means,
ie, "Become our partner and we will pray for you everyday for only
fifty dollars a month, and we can guarantee you will receive at least
one miracle a month, three if you believe!" ;
and the selling of carnal merchandise for over inflated rates, in the
name of the church or in the name of Christ, or in the name of
someone's ministry, when in fact it is NOT their ministry in God BUT
God's ministry in them!
If one truly believes God is faithful when they say:
"God is faithful!...if you sow a seed into our ministry, God will
begin to meet all your needs in Christ Jesus according to His riches
in glory! Glory to God send in your payment today and start
receiving, as we have been blessed! Look at us... how wealthy we are.
We even have our own jet so we don't have to sit next to sinners
who smoke!" ...
then why pray tell can't THEY act on their OWN words that "God is
faithful" and simply trust "HIM" for their every need and stop
pleading for the offerings of poor or working class people!; whom
they are pleading to and not to GOD, while they get RICH and fat and
Such things naturally grieve the heart of a Christian seeking and
desiring to know the deeper things of God. And because many are not
aware, or on guard to even think there is such a thing as "moral
evil", they are prone to follow the pack of sheep that are being lead
by a wolf, who themselves think they are sheep! They themselves are
deceived in this delusion and end up preaching "another gospel" "in
the name of Christ", claiming Jesus as the Christ or as savior.
I thought there was only one gospel?
Is there another gospel?
You bet there is! Paul wrote about such!
But it is not
actually "another" gospel but it is a "perverted" gospel.
Perverted like some of God's people are!
Gal 1:6-7- I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called
you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and
would pervert the gospel of Christ. (KJV)
The true Gospel involves such: Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living
God; the message in His life and living words; His death; His burial
and His resurrection with faith in Christ as the only door path to
God the Father! Anything other than that is side stepping the true
gospel and the faith!
Romans 1 covers the gospel of Christ in how it is the power of God
unto salvation, based strictly on faith to any, Jew or Greek, who
will believe. In this true gospel is the righteousness of God
revealed- from faith to faith, based on the premise that any
receiving justification by the gospel shall live by faith.
It speaks clearly concerning the wrath of God being upon any who hold
the truth in unrighteousness. Because when the truth of God was made
known to such- with God having showed it unto them- in which they
understood, so then are they without any excuses for changing the
glory of the incorruptible God into such images as Paul describes
as: "image(s) made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and
fourfooted beasts, and creeping things",...
and without adding to his words-such could also include any images of
corruptible things made by man, whether they be nice "crystal glass
what-nots" or fancy jeweled crosses, (for although many esteem the
symbol of the cross itself as holy, for He who is the holy one who
died on it- the cross was really a means of man's inventiveness for
the use of cruel executions, and by no way is it actually "holy", for
it was a curse for any to die upon such!)
Such AVON selling of the gospel in barter exchanges such as,
"for an offering of $100.00 we will send you this small but
elegantly "glass" jeweled, gold "colored" cross for you to hang from
the mirror of your car so you can "show" everyone you are
a "Christian".... is out right perverting God's glory for CASH!
Such have belied the LORD! They are "kachash-ing in" by changing the
glory of the uncorruptible God with untrue means, and this dissembles
and perverts the true purpose of the gospel!
If one has a gifted "work" they have labored on that is presented
righteously, with integrality ie, such as a book that took research,
time, labor and costs- that promotes faith and not vanity - and such
is presented in honesty and fairness as an aid to help others towards
having true faith in God, with such item offered without pressure to
any desiring such - in fair cost- to aid one who is gifted towards
more gifted works, and since it is not an over priced gimmick, but a
work of the workman, or servant of God, it should not be frowned upon
that such a one should be considered unworthy of it's true modest
value. Because the ox that grinds the corn should also eat of the
corn, and it should NOT be muzzled -simply because it is an ox!
Because one is a true laborer of God, presenting true works of worth,
does not mean they should be muzzled from receiving a fair reward for
such, simply because they are a laborer!
Does someone punching a clock, working a secular job for their own
needs, expect to be paid or do they labor for nothing?
Should one working against the eternal clock for souls, wherein they
are called or gifted, expect to labor for nothing, simply because
their labor is for heaven's gain and not self?
IF it is ONLY fair that the natural laborer be paid, how unfair is it
for the spiritual laborer to expect the same when the same law of the
curse has it's effect on both- that if a man does not work, he shall
For one is simply working for self towards the natural rewards, while
the other is working for God and others towards the spiritual
rewards. In God's eyes whom do you suppose would actually be MORE
worthy of his pay?
They whom work for self or they whom work for God?
Which is a more righteous cause? Which is more worthy of it's pay?
For there is a big difference between a true work of spiritual worth
that takes natural support to produce -and an over priced gimmick
that costs one barely nothing, with little or no personal work effort
involved, except for buying such in bulk with the mind to market such
for a huge profit!
Every good truth of God that holds a powerful influence on people has
been copied with a counterfeit that can be so close to the truth many
do not see any difference in the two.
God had a well He lead the children of Israel to, where they were
refreshed and were delighted and danced before the Lord after merely
drinking the water there, and the name of that well meant "The Waters
of God". So the evil one behind immoral evil sought to imitate and
copy the recipe and presented to the world his counterfeit drink and
called it by the same name that the Waters of God's well was named:
When the people of the world sought for something stronger to
influence their lives, and to give them a delight, some began
considering the Holy Spirit of the living God when they saw how
righteously drunk the people of God could become by God's Spirit and
so the evil one had to act quickly to copy and produce a counterfeit
for that. He began brewing up liquor and called it "spirits".
When the forces of evil see that they can not bind a believer up in
the immoral evil issues of the fleshly desires, they turn to the
power of deception by moral means, or in the name of morality; the
church; or Jesus Christ; or the Reverend "so-and-so", and begin
misleading whom they will and can....

"A recently converted 'Special Ed.' drug dealing club leader dies and finds himself standing in a line at the Throne Room of God. He struggles with his thoughts that are "heard louder than spoken words" by a mass of holy witnesses...
'Oh God! Not another line!'
'Shut-up man! This isn't high school!'
'Sorry man. I mean God. You are God right?
Or do you just work here?'...
until he bows at the feet of Jesus where self forgiveness, sanity and true life find a resting place!"

Blessed is the man whose sin the Lord will never count against him." <><
Subject: The Miracle posts at Christian-Bikers egroup
Here are the post threads, with some pictures concerning the recent miracles at Christian-Bikers that I spoke to you about. More links will be attached to this page in time, showing Art's miracle tumor healing, Kristina's deliverance from alcohol addiction and Pat's deliverance from anxiety attacks,...
whenever I can have the time to create more web pages. Wheewwww, God's healings and wonders are keeping me busy with the building of extra web pages!
Will you please share this post with this link with Mark and all the others at AoLF?
"THANKS" from my heart!

Subject: Taking the Good With the Bad
this is one of the Pastors (Cathy) that was healed in her legs last week after a prophetic word and prayer was offered!
She's being used of the Lord to organize a big Biker Rally for Christ in Bakersville CA.
Just thought I'd share this, and ask that you remember this event in prayer?
My Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This message is to all who are interested in our project for the Lord, Run for Jesus 03. I thank God for you all daily, as your prayers and interest have made this grow from a couple of folks talking on the net, to a huge and blessed event. Healings, my own among others, have blessed us, miracles have happened (my letter with all my info showing up in the guestbook of the Brothers of the Cross without my sending it, among others), and the Anointing of the Lord is flowing freely.
All Praise and Glory to our Holy Father and our Lord, Jesus Christ!!!!!
Brother Buzzsaw from BOTC in San Antonio has our route mapped out, and our travel plans laid. We are still in need of a truck or van to follow us in case of the unexpected breakdown, etc. and more riders from this part of the country, and more to join us along the way, but I have no doubt the Lord will provide whatever it is in His will for us to have.
Our Brothers in Bakersfield have been extremely busy and extremely blessed!
They have all sorts of wonderful things in store for us. They have asked for this to be a T-N-T run. That means for everyone to bring a new toy or a new pair of tennies for distribution to those less fortunate.
I will be happy to provide the details of our route from Texas, if anyone is interested in joining us along the way.
We will be meeting our California brothers at the Frazier Park Church off the Airport Rd. at 5:00 PM on October 3, 2003. We will continue on to our final destination, with the California brothers riding in with us. Oct.4th will be a day of bike games and a bike show, fellowship, and music, and perhaps testimony.
October 5th will be a day of worship and praise to Our Lord.
Folks, this thing is not just another rally!
As I have said before, the Lord is working here, and something big is going to happen! I have no doubt whatsoever that His mighty hand is on us, and His Presence will be known at this event.
God is Awesome!
I ask you all to search your hearts to see if the Lord is leading you to attend this event, to pray for the continued success of the organization of it, and to support it in anyway you can.
Anyone who needs more details is welcome to e-mail me.
In Christ's Love,
Subject: BLOOD OF THE SON
With skies darkened overhead,
stretching far unto the horizon,
the earth quaked her sorrowed
heart from the blood of the Son
and bowed her heavy head to cry
as the graves opened, one by one
at her nod with what was done:
the Son of God crucified!
Soldiers ran; women screamed;
some ignited torches for light.
In prayer others wept hoping God
might hear, to lift the daylight's night.
Spiders stopped weaving upon the web
within humble homes and wild lands;
hatchings grew still within the nest
from the blood of the Son of Man!
The earth quaked her sorrowed
heart in a nod with what was done;
and bowed her heavy head to God
from the blood of the Son!
