This incredible video displays the Glory of Creator God in our amazingly designed world.
Psalm 19 declares,
“The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
Theres is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.”

It is simply incredible how the Lord has used evangelist Reinhard Bonnke to literally save millions in Africa. Today truly is the day of salvation. John the baptist said of Jesus, “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” Jesus said himself, “I came to seek and save the lost!” Jesus truly ment, “Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation.” Amen!

A great quick lecture on having Gods perspective for our world

If it was not for the steady 90 year drumbeat of radical abolitionist, slavery in America would not have been abolished. On January 31st, 1865 the House of Representatives answered their cry by passing the 13th amendment, doing away with slavery once and for all.

The same steady drumbeat for abolition is going on today ever since Roe v. Wade was passed in January 1973. This drum beat for life is growing louder now that nearly 54 million innocent children have been killed. The saying is intense but it truly has become “the silent holocaust.” Wherever you stand on the issue, 54 million is the shear fact of the matter and it should give you pause. On that note, I maintain that it is a travesty that in our day it is even a debate–“are you for the possibility of life or against it?” “are you pro-life or pro-choice?” And that this stance has lead to which political party you are affiliated with is simply, unacceptable. We need to shed the politics of the issue and look at it with a fresh perspective.

The book of Jeremiah opens with that perspective, “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.” If you lived in a cultural vacuum and read that you would conclude that God cherishes life and does not look at it as finite as we do. We need an elevated perspective, a God perspective, one that looks at life from beginning to end. The Gospel of Jesus Christ was the driving force behind the abolition of the trans atlantic slave trade, U.S. slavery, the civil rights movement, and now in our day Jesus is fueling the fire of abolishing the current sex trafficking industry and abortion. The liberating drum beat of the Gospel will not be stopped.

Jesus came, “to set the captives free and bind up the brokenhearted.” He had piercing words concerning the protection of innocent children, “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea”-Matthew 18:5-6. Imagine what Jesus would have to say about the innocent unborn children! Why is the issue of abortion linked to slavery? Because abortion is inherently tied to the issue of life and liberty. We live in a land that was founded on the right to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” If we protect this right for the born, how can we deny it to the unborn? We are created in the image of God and the Founders knew this. They did not act on this truth in their day (in regards to slavery) others would pick up where they left off. Therefore, life is sacred and must be protected in and out of the womb in our land and in our day. Psalm 49:7-8 says, “Truly no man can ransom another, or give to God the price of his life, for the ransom of their life is costly and can never suffice.”

A recent time magazine cover speaks to the advancing pro-life drumbeat in America, “40 years ago, abortion-rights activists won an epic victory with Roe v. Wade, they’ve been loosing ever since.” The tide is turning, the cause of LIFE is advancing. No one is an accident. The God of eternity past, present and future says, “before I formed you in the womb I knew you.” The House of Representatives will one day agree with this truth and do away with abortion once and for all.

On October 31st 1517, Martin Luther posted his revolutionary 95 theses. This dismantled hundreds of years of ungodly religious oppression. After his life, an army of Reformers and Revolutionaries soon emerged. Foremost among them was John Calvin. Calvin brought forth what is known today as Reformed Theology. Its by Grace We have been saved NOT by works! Calvin’s phrase was, “Post Tenebras Lux”—“After Darkness… Light.” Praise God for reformers and spiritual revolutionaries.

This late summer and fall have been incredible! In mid August I felt the Lord calling me down to Kansas City, Missouri for The School of the Circuit Rider. I didn’t think I would be able to get away from work and have the funds to pay for the two weeks but the Lord provided! 300 or so Jesus lovin fiery eyed revivalist descended on KC for two incredible weeks of salvation and the Lord imparting crucial truths of the hour. Fear, passivity, unbelief, were all stripped away as we repented and embraced His boldness!–“without faith it is impossible to please God.”The Lord is raising the level of faith and affirming he really is the God of the Bible! We can trust him for the impossible. He is the God who works in impossibility–“The kingdom of God does not come with talk but in power!” The call of the Circuit Rider is to, save the lost, revive the saved, and train them all. The original Circuit Riders were a mobile band of preachers that spread across the american frontier in the early 1800’s. Most of them did not live past the age of 30 but they lived passion filled lives consumed with seeing the lost saved and revived. My favorite Circuit Rider, Peter Cartwright said, “a man must be singular in his focus and purpose.” The Lord is releasing the Circuit Riders again! This is a time of walking in the ancient paths and ancient wells! I feel called to preach the Gospel in the highways and the byways. The Lord is shattering the lie that we are not equipped enough to preach the Gospel. Maybe in a year or two we will be ready, No! He has given us everything we need through the Holy Spirit to move out in power and preach the Good News! Today is the day of Salvation!! not in a month, not in a year but now!!!–“Today if you hear His voice do not harden your hearts.”–“Awake O sleeper and rise from the dead so Christ can shine on you!” Following Jesus always takes place in the ever-present now!–“Immediately they left their nets and followed Him.” The disciples learned on the way and thats what we are called to do. We had four days of street evangelism and saw over 200 salvations and 70 healings!!! The anointing comes in the going. When you step out in faith, things happen! It was an incredible two weeks and I will never be the same.

After Kansas City, we had an old fashioned camp meeting at my parents lake house! About 20 of us from Cleveland showed up to pray and worship for 24 hours. It was an incredible time of sharing around the camp fire and encouraging each other towards Faith Hope and Love. After the camp meeting Chelsey and I went down to Washington D.C. for some more tent meeting Holy Spirit awesome worship. God loves tents! Hes not crazy about temples built with human hands but loves to keep us mobile in His creation. We lead 3 two hour worship sets at Davids Tent a couple at night and one during the day. Davids Tent is going for it!! with 40 days of 24/7 worship to Jesus!!! no man will be exalted this november just Jesus the eternal One!! Revival is Now! There is another Jesus People Movement sweeping the nation and we will not stop till everyone knows about The Hope that is in Jesus!

I made this curly cherry coffe table for my buddys dad, Bill Sr! love the amazing grain pattern of curly cherry…..wow.

 

Renovating our kitchen has been a long and drawn out process. What’s the hurry I say, I’m not keeping up with the Joneses!!!!! After painting the old cabinets and ripping out the old nasty countertops it changed the whole feel of the place. I choose sycamore for the countertops because of its warm glow and quarter swan grain pattern. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out!

Its late February and this winter has been lame! There has hardly been any snow and not much weather where you really need to start a fire. Right now I am finishing up a floor sanding job at my friend Steves new home. He and his wife are moving into a community house that used to be a catholic parish. Countless hours of volunteers and other craftsman have worked renovating the place. The community house will be a place of prayer and a wide open door to offer the name of Jesus to anyone in the neighborhood. It has been great to be able to once again bring some great floors back to the original instead of being covered up by carpet!
I also went official with starting my own woodworking business offering furniture design and floor refinishing. If you have a reverence for wood, were in business!
