Isaiah 6:1-5 (KJV)
1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
3 And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
4 And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
5 Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.



Sometimes I feel that the greatest enemy is experience. It allows me to get lazy in my service. Instead of seeking God’s leadership, I tend to do it the way I have always done.

As I sought today for His guidance, He brought me to this passage. As I turned through His great living Word, the quiet praise music sang these words, “I touched the sky when my knees hit the ground” (Hillsong). Isaiah “saw the Lord,” he heard “Holy,Holy, Holy is the Lord;” he was broken “Woe is me for I am undone for I have seen the King, the Lord of Host.” God uses broken things! He repairs broken lives and the scars declare His grace. God show me your way through the difficulties that come. Give me a vision of your desire for my life and ministry today! Give me confidence to do as you lead. Help me to seek you and not just pray for stuff and people. This I will do, but I need to see you. First things first!

I don’t want to rely on experience. I want the best. Touch me with the coal from your alter that my life will shine your glory. Help me Lord not to miss the greatest opportunity to behold your glory. As I behold the child in the manger, King of Kings and Lord of Lords.


We are Blessed!

John 1:39 (KJV)
39 He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.

Jesus’ words, “come and see”, was an invitation to Andrew and the other disciple, name unknown, to come to His house and see. It was there that the two were convinced that Jesus was the Christ. Andrew went and found his brother Simon and brought him to Jesus where he was convinced that Jesus was the one, the Christ. Convinced, Consumed, Changed, Commissioned to the work; his name was changed to Peter and that was just the beginning. Jesus saw in Simon more than that which was present. Jesus looked past Simon’s faults, fears and failures, and saw the outstanding leader of the church. Jesus looked at people for what they could become not what they were. He was not myopic in His vision but looked with eyes that saw beyond what was just in front of Him.

I have had the pleasure, and great blessing, of seeing young people make decisions about Christian service that I had reservation about, but still saw some greatness deep in their heart. Some have became good faithful members of their local church while two are active on the mission field, one in Africa and the other here in Oklahoma as a director of missions. Not to just see them saved, but grow in their Christian life. I have to constantly pray for patience, because those who are being saved and serving make mistakes and sometimes crash and burn. But patience with wisdom teaches me to look at what they can be and not who they are or what they have done. Jesus saw Simon and saw him as the rock, the one who will lead the first church through Pentecost and through the growth of the early church.

My heart still breaks when those who have committed to serve fall away, sometimes overwhelmed by the task others by love of this present world. But I am reminded of the promise of the prodigal son. Luke 15:17-18 (KJV)
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,.
I will continue to pray for each one until they all come back to the father. We must remain faithful. We are blessed.

Matthew 8:1 (KJV)
1 When he was come down from the mountain,


We always have to come down from the mountain. God gives us mountains so we can be refueled for the work ahead. A mountain can be any place at any time. It isn’t a high place but a meeting place away from all the distractions. A place where we meet Jesus through the Spirit, not to be filled, but rather to surrender more of ourselves to Him and His power. John 15:5 (KJV) 5 “…for without me (Jesus) ye can do nothing “.

There have been many mountains in my life. Every year I have the great opportunity to take students to Falls Creek Baptist assembly. This place tucked away in the hills of Oklahoma is a mountain for me. So many lives have been changed in this place that it seems that the presence of the Spirit still abides like an afterglow. I was able to this year at children’s camp to take a sponsor for his first time. His testimony was that when he entered the tabernacle he could feel the presence of God.

These mountains are places that we can come to be restored over and over again. I call them footholds of faith. Bethel was a place for Jacob. (Gen 28:18-22). Moses had the mountain of God, Horeb. (Ex 3:1). To some it is an alter in some small church, to others it is a place of peace where they have had a personal encounter with God. No matter where that place is we must come down to service. The work is down the mountain.

My prayer is that the alter at your church will become a mountain that you will visit over and over again. That you will be refreshed, restored and refueled for the work. We are blessed.

Matthew 7:15-16 (KJV)
15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?


This warning is extremely important to take heed! Not all “Christians” are what they proclaim to be. Their goal is not the encouragement not the empowerment of the Body of Christ but rather their own self interests whatever they will be. They are not good for the church.

There is always a “new” thing that we just need to have or do. This wolf is at the door. I have always been a Baptist, Southern Baptist. At that time it was because that is where I got saved. I knew nothing else. New things were everywhere and I would hang between two conflicting things. One day a lady who cut my hair was telling me about her new experience, that she was moving further from her Baptist roots and challenged me to study the bible with an open mind. She didn’t know but I was moving in the same direction. So I studied! Now I am a Baptist, Southern Baptist because of biblical conviction.

The mission mind of Southern Baptist saw a need in my home town, Imperial California, and began a new work there. That new work became the First Southern Baptist Church, where years later I came to Christ, was taught His word and surrendered my life to Gospel ministry.

You shall know them by their fruits. We should always want to know more about teachers and workers. We are not to judge but we can inspect fruit. The wolf is in this for himself, doesn’t care about you. Check your internet teachers. Some are not all they say.  Our enemy will use distraction as a great weapon against us. We get so busy about being blessed that we forget to be a blessing. Serving our Lord is one of the greatest privileges in the world. Serve Him with gladness. We are blessed.

Matthew 7:13-14 (KJV)
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Sometimes the words of Jesus are hard to swallow. Jesus ends the Sermon On The Mount with a series of contrast. These contrast help us to understand more about the true kingdom man or woman.

Jesus speaks of two roads, one straight and narrow and the other wide and broad. I have listened to many people of “influence” speak about all roads leading to heaven. That everybody gets there. I have done many funerals for people who professed a salvation experience but showed zero evidence, no sign of conversion. They used this profession as a form of “fire insurance” to protect them against that day. This leads me to a question, can you invite Jesus into your heart and not surrender your life to His lordship? Throughout the growth of the church in the book of Acts, changed lives is the mark of salvation.

I do believe that there are many believers who came to saving knowledge of Christ, Jesus changed them, and they walked with Him in control. Who have since fallen away and are out of fellowship with the Father. I hope that the promise of the prodigal will help in understanding. He was brought up in the father’s house, drew his life from the father’s provision and worked for the father. When he left the father there was never a time when he was not a son, never a time when he was not loved and never a time when he would not welcomed back.

Gods desire is for us not to sin. 1 John 2:1 (KJV) 1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.  God has given us everything we need to live a life for Him. 1 John 2:1 (KJV) 1 … And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: He knew us! He provided a way for regaining lost fellowship. JESUS! We are blessed.
