In The Aftermath Of Mount Carmel

Aimless Seemingly
Led Yet Dry & Hungry

Provoked & Challenged
Loved Yet Drawn

Abandoned Seemingly
Never Forsaken Yet Sequestered

Encouraged Yet Lonely

Worn Out Seemingly
Fruitful Yet Lacking

The Weight Of The Hand Of God

(Song Of Solomon 1:5-7 & 8:5; 1 Kings 19:9-18; 1 Corinthians 13:4-13)

In A Dry & Weary Land

Common & Normal, Natural
Day In & Day Out, Ordinary
Bone Dry, Empty
Weary, Hungry

Not Enough! Desperate!


Religious Fervor, DEATH!

Uncommon & Paranormal, Supernatural
Adventurous Journey, Extraordinary
Soaked, Overflowing
Refreshed, Filled

Superabundant! Joyful!


Shalom! Holiness Unto The Lord!




(Deuteronomy 8:1-5; Matthew 4:1-4; Psalm 63:1-8)

Questions Of Fatherhood

Question: What is my role as a father in this life?

Answer: Lover, Teacher, Guide, Mentor, A Pointer To The Truth, A Resource Of Truth, & A Shepherd. I want to encourage my children's search for the answer to the question 'What Is Truth?' while all the time pointing them to Jesus as the answer to that question. I want to speak God's destiny and identity into their lives as much and as often as possible. I want to encourage my children to know God's Word from as young an age as possible. I want to instill a love of the truth in my children. I want to be a refuge for my children.

Question: What is my goal as a father in this life?

Answer: That my children would learn and grow in the knowledge of God, trust Him with all of their lives, and become conformed into the very image of Jesus even when the world is shaking apart and unbelievers hate them and would try to have them killed.

(Psalm 1:1-3; Luke 1:17, 74-79; 2 Timothy 1:6-7)

Patterns - Didn't Follow

Covenant - Didn't Trust Me, Didn't Trust The Pattern

Renewed (New) Covenant - The Law In Their Minds, The Law On Their Hearts

I AM their God!

They are MY PEOPLE!

None will teach saying 'KNOW GOD'.


'Small' AND 'Great' Will Know ME!

Mercy To The Wicked! Forgetful Of Their Sin!

(Hebrews 8:8-12 Complete Jewish Bible)

Isaiah 59

Arm Not To Short To Save
Ear Not To Dull To Hear
Sin Separated Us
SIn Hid Us
Our Hands Stained With Blood
Our Fingers Crusted With Guilt
Our Lips Speak Lies
Our Tongues Utter Wicked, Evil Things
No Justice!
No Integrity!

Our Deeds Are Evil
We Act Violently
Truth Can't Be Found
Upright Men Torn Apart
Justice Far Away, Righteousness Gone!
No Man Intervenes
Therefore God Does!

His Arm Works Righteousness!
His Arm Works Salvation!
He Clothes Himself For Battle!
He Wraps Himself With Zeal!
In Vengeance He Repays!
Everywhere, Men FEAR HIM!
Everywhere, Men REVERE HIM!
Redeemer Comes To Zion
To Jacob Who Repents


Spirit In You, Won't Depart
My Words In You, Won't Depart
Your Children Will Know Them
Their Children Will Know Them
All Your Descendants Will Know Them
