The Hope Dimension

Everyone has seen a “cube” drawn on a piece of paper.  The drawing is a two-dimensional representation (flat paper with two directions say x and y) but you can “see” the third dimension.  The picture is the projection of the cube onto another “dimension” of space.  Can you hear the Twilight Zone music playing right…

What is our death, really?

Gal 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (KJV) So my “death” is liberating but in a…

200 Proof Grace

I think Hollywood has perfected the “mind altered” movies.  You know the ones.  The dad breathes in a gas that makes him want to attack his kids which is completely out of character with his normal mode.  Or the whole town gets infected with a virus where they all start fighting with each other.  In…

Steadfast Love

Psalms 118:1 Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever! (ESV) I really feel like we have missed it.  We have spun around and around in circles looking for something that has been there all along.  We have turned to religion and found condemnation.  We have turned…

Spoons and Steaks

Gal 2:16 yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will…

It is time for freedom

Rom 3:20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin. (ESVST) The law cannot make anyone right with God. We need to understand that He is right with us period. All he wants is our love. All he wants is…
