    What is Marriage?

    Sun, May 31, 2015
    I am sure that you know about the recent vote in Ireland regarding same sex marriage. Also, I know that you are aware that the Supreme Court is also considering the definition of marriage. Maybe someone should alert them that Jesus has already made a ruling. Matthew 19:3-5 (KJV) 3 The Pharisees also came unto him, tempting him, and ...
     

    Memorial Day

    Sat, May 23, 2015
    Pentecost Sunday, and memorial day normally occur weeks apart. However, this weekend two important days overlap. Pentecost Sunday is a religious holiday which means, one thing for the Jews and another for Christians. Memorial day is a holiday where America remembers its war dead and the incredible price of freedom. For us, Pentecost Sunday is the ultimate memorial day. Pentecost ...
     

    Mothers Day

    Sun, May 10, 2015
    Proverbs 31:10-31 (KJV) 10 Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. 11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil. 12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life. 13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh ...
     

    Miracles Happen

    Sat, Apr 25, 2015
    For today’s WFTJ, I just have a simple message, “Miracles Happen”. I’m talking about real miracles, “the lame walking, deaf hearing, blind eyes opening miracles.”. Think about it, God is a God of miracles. From the beginning of the Bible, “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth.” I would call that a miracle, wouldn’t ...
     

    Making Bitter Things Better

    Sun, Apr 19, 2015
    Yesterday, we spent the day with Bro. and Sis. Zimmerman, and of course Josiah. It was a day of fellowship, shopping, of course eating, and we had to give Josiah some play time. So we took the Zimmerman’s to Coonskin Park in Charleston. It was a lot of fun. I remember going to Coonskin and taking my ...
     

    But For This Cause

    Sun, Apr 5, 2015
    When addressing Pilate Jesus made this statement “…but for this cause came I unto this hour.” An accurate statement would be that Jesus was born to die. Have you considered everyone that was involved and necessary for the crucifixion to happen? There needed to be a Judas, a denier, liars and accusers, others that would not betroubled, ...
     

    I Do Not Understand

    Sun, Mar 22, 2015
    I admit that there are somethings that I do not understand. Splitting atoms is above my pay grade. The balance of the universe is more than I can handle, and the why teenagers act the way they do totally baffles me. There are a couple of more things that confound me. I know that Jesus loves me, ...
     

    Problem Solved

    Mon, Mar 16, 2015
    My name is David Johnston and I am dependent on my computer. There I said it. Confession is good for the soul. All is great with my computer as long as it working well. However, when the beeping starts, or it freezes, or some other unexplainable event happens, then it drives me crazy. Not long ago, ...
     

    Valentine Love

    Sun, Feb 15, 2015
    Do you remember celebrating Valentine’s Day in grade school? Shoeboxes became “mailboxes” covered with construction paper, with a pipe cleaner shaped into a heart. A big oval slit cut in the top waiting for all those envelopes to be stuffed in. We would go to Cheds (a local department store) to pick out a package of Valentines. The teacher sent a ...
     

    Framed Together

    Sun, Feb 8, 2015
    This is being written before I left for Israel, but in anticipation of the trip, I am writing about one of the sights in Israel. I don’t know if I will see it or not, but it would be real interesting. One of the many places that I hope to see is Solomon’s quarries – also known as Zedekiah’s cave. ...
