My First Tagging!

Bro. Ender over at his blog, Absolutely Free Grace has tagged me to tell 7 things about myself that hardly anyone knows, That should be exceedingly easy since not too many folk in the blogosphere knows me anyhow! But for the sake of fun & good cheer, here goes!

1) My sweet wife & I got married exactly 2 years to the minute from when we first met!

2) I barely know how to drive a manual transmissioned car, & would be fearful of driving one, especially in the mountains!

3) I cannot swim. In fact, I have a terrible fear of water!

4) I used to chew tobacco (MANY years ago! The Lord helped me quit that disgusting habit, though!)

5) I enjoy whistling!

6) I've never torn a car down, & then taken the parts & rebuilt it inside of a building!

7) I despise mathematics & am teriible at it!

OK, Hallelujah, 'Tis Done!

Now I'm tagging these distinguished bloggers: (sorry, I don't know how to link to these!)

1) Jack, or ExPreacherman over at

2) TJ, or Liver & Onions, over at

3) John, or The Earnest Contender, over at

This is fun! God Bless.

Moving Heaven & Earth

It is evident that God wants people to be saved. He literally moved Heaven & earth to get everyone in place for His Son's coming into the world to be the Savior. He moved Heaven by creating a special star to point anyone interested to follow it to the Savior Himself! (Mt.2:1-12) Only some wise men took Him up on it, as far as we know. But it was there for all to see & follow anyway.
He moved the earth by having Caesar Augustus to force everyone to the place of their birth to register for a tax (Lk.2:1ff) This of course brought Mary & Joseph to Bethlehem Ephratra so Jesus could be born at the correct place according to ancient prophecy (Mi.5:2). He still does the same thing today. Those of us who are saved, He was willing to bring about some amazing occurrences to get the Gospel to us so that we could hear it, believe it & be saved! If you are not saved today, consider what God has done to save you. It is truly amazing. If you will just consider the evidence, you will begin to see just how God loves you & wants to save, not just a mass of people, but you, personally. Those of us who are saved, let's never lose the wonder of it all. God Bless & Merry CHRISTmas!

Who are the Fearful?

Revelation 21:8 in the KJV says, "But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death."

My question is, who is "the fearful" at the beginning of the verse referring to? I don't think I've ever heard any Bible teachers comment on this. I know most modern translations render this as "cowards" or the "cowardly." Dr. Bob Wilkin I think does a great job of dealing with this awesome verse at the GES web site here:
But I'd still like to hear what my brothers & sisters in Christ here have to say about this. Thank you for any insight. May the Lord bless you!
