A quick note: 3 million views

Thank you readers! I am so grateful for the readership and the comments here. Last night this blog passed 3 million views. That means in some way or another 3 million people came in contact with the themes of Jesus, His name, of the concepts of redemption, holiness, the Spirit, lawlessness, or salvation. It is also a lot to be accountable to Jesus for in me handling the Word...

I began a secular blog in 2006, because that was the thing to do back then. It is called The Quiet Life, based on the verse from 1 Thessalonians 4:11-12. As I went along though, my new position of justified before Christ and increasingly sanctified in Him prompted me to discuss more of Him. I also felt a burden for being a witness to the last days and the fervor and discernment that comes along with that.

So in 2009 I started this blog, devoted exclusively to encouraging the saints, teaching how to discern, and warning of the last moments of the last days. For Christians, I hope that the writing here would accomplish those goals, and that we would all strive to live a higher standard of living for Christ, including myself! For non-Christians I pray that the words here and the links here and the comments in discussions here would shed light on your sins and your need for Jesus. I won't know the level of my obedience or disobedience until I get there, or what the Spirit has done through me, but in any case, I try to work for Christ all day, all the time.

Speaking of work for Christ, I am working at the County Fair tonight in our church's Snack Shack booth. The Fair is huge around here so it will be crowded even if it rains (which it is supposed to). If you think of it, would you kindly pray for hearts to be prepared ahead of them coming the booth? I'll be saying James 5:8 a lot as well as Mark 1:15. I guess I am not a believer in 'relational evangelism'. If 'Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand' was the very first ministry words Jesus our King said, (Mt 4:17) and good enough for John the Baptist, the greatest man who ever lived, (Matthew 11:11) then those verses are good enough for me to open with. But I am not bold so I'll need prayers to help me. :)

Thank you for reading and your comments and encouraging me through your talents and time and prayers. I'll be writing here until the Spirit says stop, I die, or we are raptured!

  3. I'm glad I found you! I have been reading some of your archives and have found encouragement and truth. I will pray for boldness for you tonight. I understand about that, I am not bold, really quite an introvert, but lately have been trying to reach out with the Gospel more often. It gets easier.

    Keep writing!

  4. Thank YOU for all that you write here - bringing the true Word of God to our attention. I thoroughly appreciate all the time you take to write what you do and if 3 million people are reading along too, then that's a whole bunch of people deepening their knowledge of and relationship with the Lord. Thank you again.
