We praise God for those family and friends who have stood by our side! Through these hard times if it were not for them, near and far, in the free world and those behind prison walls, in the North, South, East and West, some on social media, many old friends and some new ones we would have surely perished financially and been homeless, hungry and destitute. God is good, and He blessed us with these precious saints, family and friends over the years unbeknownst to us that would be there through the storm and the rain.
The ministry has suffered too. I virtually stop teaching and preaching for well over a year. In latter part of 2012 I preached/taught at a church in Georgia about 3 times and since moving to Texas my family and I haven't attended one church service, Bible study, etc. I've been involved in two online/conference call Bible stduies, but generally Sunday is spent at home with family. To be quite frank, I don't miss church and all of the religious hoopla and hypocrisy.
I say, a New Beginning, but by no means am I saying we are out of the woods yet. Beginning October 1 I will be doing the radio broadcast again on Blog Talk Radio. Because of how I work I will have to get up at 2:30 A.M. to do a 3 A.M. show, then prepare for work. I'm up most nights anyway; can't sleep. I have became a volunteer in the Texas prison system also; prison ministry is a passion I thank God I receieved and still have. This blog post is my first in a very long time, but hopefully this will pick up too.
Pray for this old preacher!
So, here's to a New Beginning!

With the passing of many of the old Church Fathers in 2012 are we as the Church Unversial on the doorsteps of the apostate church described in Revelation 3?
Laodicea was described by Christ as being lukewarm, and thus useless to used by Him, even though it would seem to have its act together as far as the world and superficial Christians could see.
They said of themselves, we are rich, increased in goods and had need of nothing. He, whose eyesight is far better than ours said, they were miserable, poor, blind and naked. When the Church and the believer looks good to or in the world, our condition before God is far worse.
As God calls some and allows others to graduate to glory this writer submits that we are on the edge of a Christian, a Church, and a Christianity that will seem spiritual, be well off financially, be lacking evangelization, will be powerfully influence by the world system, and lastly be judged along with the Antichrist and his False Prophet.
The admonishment of the old Apostle still rings true...come out from her and be separate! Amen.

As a Christian, husband, father and minister I have admittedly been "miss in action" for the closing months of 2012. Confess is good for the soul, goes an old saying, so I confess I have fallen short, way short of being all of who I am and "Whose" I am. I let things, people and circumstances rule and super-rule over me most of 2012 and have come to this the closing month of the year reflecting. What does 2013 hold for me, only time will tell but am I ready even for it?
I begin this my first blog under this account in this time of reflection and repentance. I can and must do better. With the help of the Lord and staying faithful to His Word my "new year" can be different, better and more prosperous than 2012 and all the years previous. Out with the old, in with the new! This begins today, days before 1/1/2013 in and with me.
