  1. Are your thoughts what you think they are?

    Does what other people think matter? So often in our lives we get trapped into someone elses issues of what matters to them. Why is it that we can so easily get caught up in what others are doing?

    For the most part we live our lives according to a set of standards that we have compiled for ourselves. When other people do things that we find offensive than we immediately throw up a wall in order to protect our values.

  5. . . . apropos the VISION verses of Revelation 20:4:6 . . .



    Well, perhaps it is time finally to explain what I mean when I indicate that Rev. 20:4-6 are VISION verses:

    Rev. 20
    4And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ
