I heard something good about Samaritan Ministries, the homeless shelter for men in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I met with a man named Marty today, and he said he came out of jail with nothing. He wants to stay sober so he is avoiding the old crowds on the streets. Samaritan Ministries is giving him a temporary place to sleep. He said they are feeding him good food and he has chapel every night with some good preaching. He hopes he can get work soon and says he is trusting the Lord.
Some homeless men I talk with don’t want to stay at the shelter. When I ask them why, no one has ever given me a substantial complaint. For example, one homeless man said he doesn’t want to be at the shelter because the other men “fart and burp”. I understand the shelter is not an ideal place to live, but as a temporary shelter, isn’t it better than sleeping outside on the streets? It was good to hear something positive today from Marty about Samaritan Ministries.
Please pray that God would continue to guide our homeless people into a better way of life. Jesus is our Shepherd. And we all, like sheep, have gone astray and gone our own way. We need our Shepherd’s guidance daily. May God also bless Samaritan Ministries for caring for our poor brothers.
A family going through a recent divorce left the mother and children with no car. The 14-year-old son set up a lemonade stand to raise money to buy a bicycle so he could make trips from home to the grocery store. Within a few hours, the love of God moved, and Kaleb Hayes received two bicycles donated at no cost to him!
The father and son are adults. Why do they not release their names and identities?
There were different people involved in making other bomb threats. But Israel Police have dubbed this Case 801. I pray that God would cast more light on this case and reveal who funded this terrorism, and who else was involved, as well as the motive for spreading fear to Jewish communities around the world.
An article on a local news website described a man assaulting another man inside of a locked car. The victim was bleeding profusely from the back of his head with severe trauma to his face. What led to such a brutal attack?
The spiritual war is real. The demons are out to possess men and to hunt for your soul.
McJunkins became unruly, shouting about being “Jesus Christ,” “Jehovah” and “the One.”
The evil spirits like to pretend that they are the Lord, but they are nothing compared to him.
Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble. [Holy Bible, James 2:19 KJV]
McJunkins had allegedly admitted several times to “beating the s – - – ” out of the victim. He also said he had struck the victim with a flashlight inside of the vehicle. He also had several conversations with himself, referring to “the demon,” who would speak for him at different times.
If you encounter anyone possessed, do not fear, but call on the name of the Lord and be saved. His name is Jesus Christ.
Weather websites I visit would in the past show me the record high and record low temperatures for today’s date. But I don’t see that information any more, at least on the websites I visit.
My observation shows me that the weather is often breaking the records in both directions, meaning some days are hotter than ever, but ironically other days are colder than ever. Is that global warming or global cooling? Perhaps we should say neither of these phrases, but the world is being judged, and we could call it tribulation.
When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice;
(For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) he will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.
Deuteronomy 4:30-31 KJV

At the end of our life, we will have regrets. We will see our life played back and we will be sorry for how we used our time, and we will have to give account to the Judge.
So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God. [Romans 14:12]
Let us make good use of what time we have left. Flee from sin. Do not covet what your brother has. Love your brother as yourself. Do violence to no man. Look to the Lord Jesus Christ for the perfect example we men should follow, and be blessed.
We were born of a woman.
And the first woman came from a man. [ Genesis 2:21-23 ]
Pray that man would defend the rights of innocent children yet to be born on this earth, as we were.
Pray that Trump would work to reverse the evil choices of our previous leaders. And pray that mothers would love their children. [ Titus 2:4 ] There is power in words. Use them in a prayer asking God for his mercy on the United States and the for rest of the world. We have sinned by killing the innocent and our nation will be judged. Pray for forgiveness and mercy.
Ironically, when I was younger I thought abortion was acceptable because I believed in the lie of evolution. I was wrong. Each baby is a soul created by God. It is sin to kill the innocent. If women don’t want their babies, God will send loving parents to adopt those babies. Many will die in our nation in the coming judgement because they chose death and supported the killing of others. A man reaps what he sows. Choose life, not death.
The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness…. Zephaniah 1:14-15
Jesus is the Light, as He said:
I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. John 12:46
