  • THE CONVERSION OF DEVIL BILL JONES

    THE CONVERSION OF DEVIL BILL JONES

    I'm telling this story, passed down from my great-grandfather, the way he told it. (I love writing in Old Southern dialect. This is my fun way to write. The way folks used to talk.) Uncle Tom Barker was much of a man. He had been wild and reckless and feared not God nor regarded man, but one day at a camp meeting, while Bishop Gaston as shaking up the sinners and scorching them over the infernal pit, Tom got alarmed, and before the meeting was over he professed religion and became a ze...

  • A Lesson from Christmas paper

    A Lesson from Christmas paper

    Each Christmas, we exchange gifts with our family and friends to commemorate Godís Gift of Salvation through the death, burial and resurrection of His Son. Traditionally, each gift is neatly wrapped in colorful, attractive paper, decorated with ribbons and bows, and placed under the tree until Christmas Day. Yet, when weíre handed a gift, we immediately rip off all that lovely packaging and throw it in the trash. (Okay, except maybe the bow). Why? Because the paper is just a temporary covering th...

    Bible Reading: Gen 9:18-29

    A Picture Of Noah's Family

    Noah is the father, the patriarch. He has 3 sons, Japheth, Shem, and Ham. His grandson, Canaan, is also mentioned. Looking at Gen 9:24, Ham is the third son in birth order. Gen 10:21 indicates that Shem is the younger brother to Japheth. So Japheth is the oldest, Shem is second, and Ham is third. My translation implies that Canaan is not yet born in this story. This relates well to Gen 3 where God punishes...

    Courier's Log- 10-1-84

    Sunday, pm Exhausted, but grateful for being alive and free. Should be a relatively minor hitch from here: hop a freight towards Portland, catch-up with friends, get some rest- sounds like a plan. Some vacation! Travelling up the coast highway from Central California the hard way. Now going on seven days and have only gotten to Roseburg, Oregon, hitchhiking, jumping freights and marching up the endless beaches and country roads. Itís not like the old days (Pre-Christian)- drugs and partying, wan...

    Bruised Grass and a Smouldering Wick

    Isaiah 42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
    2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
    3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
    Eric wasn't a newborn but he was a very young believer in the Lord. Saved only a short while, Eric was seduced by a hereti...

  • Bobby's Story

    Bobby's Story

    Bobby was a 17 year old handsome young man who loved the Lord and served him willingly and faithfully. He was always eager to attend church, youth events and always ready to share the reason for the hope that others saw in him, even at the High School where he attended. He carried his Bible along with his text books and would read it in Study Hall. It was not unusual to see Bobby talking to his peers, smiling, inviting them to church and talking to them about the lives they were living while heading...

  • Another dream combined with more miracles
    by miepie
    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream". I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring. I also dreamed that we we...

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...

  • Freedom
    by brakelite
    Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:6,7) The principles and concepts that under-gird promises such as quoted above echo across the pages of the Holy Bible from the first book, Genesis, to the final pages of Revelation. They reveal a Creator God who, despite being despi...

  • What is Being "Christlike?"
    by Sojourner
    Someone recently asked if remaining silent about things like homosexuality and atheism is not more "Christlike" than speaking out against them--just love them, and be silent about what is displeasing to God. In that regard, we might ask if Jesus Himself--the very embodiment of God's love--was silent about the dangers of hell. Did His message not declare eternal judgment the final estate of those failing to repent and seek after the kingdom of God? Did He not warn His hearers that they would perish...

  • A Pearl of Wisdom
    by Sojourner
    As most people know, pearls, unlike most precious gems formed by geological forces, are the result of a biological process that occurs within various mollusks, including the oyster. Different species of mollusks produce pearls in a wide variety of shapes and colors, varying in beauty and value. A perfectly round pearl with just the right size, color, texture and iridescence is very rare, making such specimens highly prized and valuable. Whether pearls are produced naturally in the wild or met...
