  • One Nation Under Man

    A house divided cannot stand. It’s like a castle in the sand. It’s like a palace on the shore With a storm coming to its door. A house divided cannot live. It won’t repent and won’t forgive. It sharpens swords that it has made Against itself, which blunts its blade.

  • A New Song

    Come and sing God a new song. Come worship! Come join the throng. Let’s dance like David in the street And touch the lives of all we meet. Come, let us climb the mountain peak To shout His name. Come mild and meek!

  • The Day of the Lord

    The Day of the Lord is a day of clouds and darkness, earthquakes and rumblings, a blood moon and falling stars, fire and flashes of light, drought and curses, judgment and salvation. In this post, I explain not only the Day of the Lord coming, but the ones that have already happened too.

  • How Can Man See God and Live?

    Three thousand five hundred years ago, Moses asked God to show him His glory. God answered, “you cannot see my face, for man shall not see me and live.” In my poem and post “How Can Man See God and Live,” I explain how people already have seen God, and how we get to see His glory.

  • The Ladder to Heaven

    You may remember from Sunday school the story of Jacob’s ladder. That’s an Old Testament story that I never really considered that important. In “The Ladder to Heaven,” I show you a deeper significance to this story and how it is actually completed in the New Testament.
