Common Sense, Prophecy and Blood Red Moons

Posted by on Apr 18, 2014 in Theology | 0 comments

While it may be popular to look for esoteric signs and wonders, Jesus had a very different attitude. He condemned the Pharisees for wanting dramatic signs and told His disciples to use their ability to observe and common sense to deduce what was about to happen. “You know how to interpret the weather signs in the sky but you don’t know how to interpret the signs of the times.” (Matt. 16:3).” …you can know without being told that summer is near. Just so, when you see the events I’ve described beginning to happen, you can know his return is very...

The Real Age of One’s Spirit

Posted by on Dec 15, 2012 in Theology | 0 comments

Hypothesis It is assumed that a person’s spirit has the same age or development as their physical age or their mental age. That isn’t necessarily so. There is no question that a person is created by the 3 way fusion of sperm, egg and spirit at the time of conception. God zaps a full spirit into a zygote. Is that spirit also just forming or is that spirit fully developed? There are many observations that babies’ spirits are older than the earthly age would indicate. They watch adults very carefully and have wise comments, even if their vocabulary is limited. Jesus attributes...

Your Heart is Your Subconscious

Introduction “Heart” is a word everyone uses often but although it is used and generally understood, it seems no one is sure what they are talking about There are many possible ways heart is used but I think it is about time we had a reasonably few definitions. We really know that the heart of a human does not have all the functions, thoughts and feelings ascribed to it. It is an amazing organ that pumps blood around the body. When it stops, so do we. There are sensations that seem center in the area of the heart, but think and feel it cannot. It is a muscle. Ways...

Reality and Truth

Posted by on Apr 9, 2012 in Theology | 0 comments

Reality is: permanence, nothing changing or fading. God states, “I am”, “My words will never pass away” Any object or concept is real to the extent it is permanent. God’s word is indestructible. But “The elements will melt….” Reality lies behind what we now discern. “We see thru a glass darkly….” Our God given, inborn curiosity drives us to keep seeking reality. Truth is: Jesus, God’s Word who is the Way leading us to God, The Truth, granting us knowledge and wisdom, The Life, giving us permanence. Truth is unitary. Scripture and...

Recognizing Truth at Christmas

“That’s it”. “Now I remember.” “It all comes together.” “Now it really makes sense.” He had sat there almost all day. Frowning, almost as if in pain. Then somebody mentioned something, and suddenly he jumped to his feet and danced about shouting. “I get it. Don’t you see? There was no other way” His astonished friends replied, “We have no idea what you’re talking about” “You ninnies. It’s as obvious as the nose on your face if you just take a moment and think about it” “Think about what?” We were just listening to some old Christmas carols. What has...

Philip Ney Difficult Decision making is maturing With greater frequency I hear people who have been trying to make a difficult decision, give a sigh and say, “I feel good now I’ve made this decision so it must be God’s will for my life. This sounds like the hedonistic philosophy of a few decades ago, “If it feels good, do it”. It is very similar and it isn’t God’s way. The reason’s you can know it isn’t God’s way of either indicating His way and/or confirming your recent decision are: a) Having struggled and become tense in trying to make a difficult decision, you are...
