Noah, Daniel, and Job

Pop quiz: What do these three biblical figures have in common?

Answer: According to the Word, they are the most likely candidates to save an unrepentant city from the wrath of God. According to the Word, they are also solidly incapable of doing it.

Before we wave this off as an intriguing (if morbid) bit of biblical trivia, we need to see what the prophet Ezekiel had to say about this trio.

Takeaway Points from onething

In the post-conference aftermath as I’m crashed on my couch and fighting off a cold, I’ve been musing over the past few days. I thought I’d share some of my thoughts with you all. In no particular order, they are: Read the rest of this entry »

Zechariah 8:6 – A Quick Thought

I hope to write the overdue Word of Life update tomorrow (today?) but for now, I will leave you with my latest favorite verse out of Zechariah:

“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘If it is marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, will it also be marvelous in My eyes?’ says the LORD of hosts” (Zech 8:6).

God says this while in the middle of unpacking the glorious Millennial future of Jerusalem. In other words, “If this is mind-blowing and astonishing to you, do you really think that I am surprised by it, too?” Read the rest of this entry »

Various Thoughts on Health and Healing

Going to the prayer room is good. Breathing is also good. Unfortunately, my dysfunction with the latter is interfering with my ability to do the former. After getting fevery, but not much else on Wednesday, recovering well on Thursday and going into IHOP feeling much better on Friday, I woke up Saturday unsure about where oxygen and I stood with each other.

Now, a dose of Mucinex and about three bajillion Kleenex later, I am again sitting at home, knowing my worship team is about to rock it out at the 4:00am set. And I am sitting at home. Gosh, I’m going to be glad when Jesus is on the earth and this whole silly sickness thing is over with.

Lest I devolve completely into juvenile whining — as tempting as that sounds right now — I want to quickly own that these past few days have been anything but a total loss. Read the rest of this entry »

Voting for Righteousness

So Mike Huckabee has been taking off in the polls lately, seemingly out of nowhere. I still don’t know a tremendous amount about this candidate, but so far, I like what I hear. I am much less scared of him than I am some of the other front-runners, let’s just say that much. Let me also qualify that it is not my intention to endorse him here. You know, ‘cuz… with my huge reader base and all, I’d better be pretty impartial. Okay. So it probably doesn’t matter. But I want to state right off the bat that my intention is not to say who to vote for. I just want to say that I think this post will be relevant to you no matter who you like the looks of at the moment. I think it’s terribly relevant to this election.

The reason I am inspired to write yet another political post (gasp… I know), is because of some headlines I’ve been seeing lately. Windows Vista comes with a sidebar that runs different news headlines, which is actually pretty helpful for me. (By the way, yes, I did just say “Vista”… all you Mac or XP fans can keep your comments to yourself. ;)) I’m generally really bad at keeping up with the news, and this way I at least can see if something important is going on.

ANYWAY, I’ve been seeing articles lately of influential Republicans commenting on Mike Huckabee. He’s starting to actually dominate in some states. The word from these folks? “Whatever you do, don’t nominate him!” One person predicted that he would “implode”. The other one insisted that the Democratic party would pretty much eat him for lunch. So the basic gist of the situation is this: A lot of Republican voters are loving what Huckabee stands for. Bigwigs in the Republican party are saying that that doesn’t matter, because he might lose the election to a Democrat.

I can understand how this would be a bit of a professional conundrum. After all, you want to nominate someone who will actually win. But if the person you nominate is so far from his party’s value system that a large percentage of the people don’t want to vote for him, that’s a problem. And from a Christian perspective, if the candidate compromises on key moral issues, then that’s a big problem.

I want to share a dream I had a little over two years ago. It seemed really random at the time, but it’s feeling more and more relevant to me now than ever. I feel like I want to share it with you all for what it may be worth to you. Read the rest of this entry »
