My Dream: Sunday, October 02, 2016 (5:30AM)
For several months, I have been in a health crisis, which I will share about in the future. During this time, I have experienced a rare spirit of peace that I can only describe as supernatural. This morning I had a visitation from the Lord that I can sum up in one word: Ecstacy!
The first half of the dream is still unclear to me. I was in a rural area that I understood to be a vacation/camping destination. It was a scenic landscape of green hills and valleys, with a large pond between two hills, where I was standing. On my left, I saw many RVs and campers parked up on a hill overlooking the pond. It was very serene, and I was strongly impressed that it was a place where people came to get away from the stress of everyday life in the cities. I was with a group of people, but I did not see anyone’s facial features. Continue reading Portal of Glory
The Rio 2016 Olympics was a golden success, especially for the United States. A total of 207 nations, consisting of 11,303 athletes, competed in 28 Summer sports, in which 306 sets of medals, 918 in all, were awarded. Olympic history was made by several, including Maryland swimmer Michael Phelps and runner Usain Bolt of Jamaica.
But two outstanding Olympians did not get one of those 918 medals. Instead, American runner, Abbey D’Agnostino, was awarded the prestigious Pierre de Coubertin Medal. A New Zealand runner, Nikki Hamblin, was also awarded this medal. It has only been awarded 17 times in all previous Olympic Games. It is awarded to those who display an extraordinary act of sportsmanship. Continue reading The Amazing Race
“When you come into the land of Canaan, which I give to you for a possession, and I put the plague of leprosy in a house of the land of your possession, and he that owns the house shall come and tell the priest, saying, It seems to me there is a plague in the house. Then the priest shall command that they empty the house before the priest go into it to see the plague… ” (Leviticus 14:34-35).
In Scripture, leprosy is always symbolic of sin and evil. It was a terrible plague in those days. Lepers were totally cut off from all society, families, and loved ones; nor could they go to the tabernacle to worship God. Lepers were cast outside of the city in camps, and a leper could not return to his family until he was cured, which only the priest could pronounce. But could a house have leprosy? Because the same rituals and commandments that a recovered leper had to follow to be reinstated to society, God also commanded to be applied to a house determined to have leprosy.

“To burn or not to burn?”
The question asked by countless Americans over the past hundred years, addressed by State legislatures enacting laws to protect the flag from desecration such as burning, the U.S. Congress who approved the Federal Flag Desecration Law in 1968 to protect it from this and other acts of contempt, and ultimately answered by the Supreme Court of the United States in June 1990.

It was the third day the disciples were with their new teacher, Jesus. He was invited to a marriage celebration at Cana, located on the picturesque Sea of Galilee, and they were also invited. It was probably the marriage of a family member or very close friend, as His mother Mary seemed to know the family of the bridegroom very well.
