Fly’n With Jesus

Have you ever thought about the childhood of our Lord and Savior? The Book of Luke tells us that at twelve, Jesus became separated from Joseph and Mary. They found Him in the temple courts, sitting among the teachers, and contributing to the conversation about His Father. Jesus knew from his mother, I’m sure, that He was the great Messiah. As He grew, I wonder what He learned about His power and God?

I can imagine Jesus as a small child, sitting at a table, and praying to His Father. I envision Him moving the Old Testament back and forth with His little finger. Now you can laugh at me, but if you had supernatural powers as a small child, what else would you do?

As my thoughts grow, I come to understand what life would be like fly’n with Jesus. Visualize where you are at this moment, and in an instant, you’re in some other place. Your spirit would be fully cognizant as you transform into the Holy Spirit of God. Suddenly, a line of sinners stands before you, waiting to receive your judgment. I couldn’t think of a heavier weight to carry than to decide who is worthy of God’s blessings and the heavenly gates!

Who knows what’s going on upstairs above the radiant blue? A lot of unexpected deaths in 2020 occurred so far. Little babies were cast to the wind, and children too young to know the difference joined authors, musicians, and other legends. They now sit on the wings of Christ. Don’t you think it would be a blessing of a miracle if you could fly with Jesus to save those who are truly worthy of His eternal life?

In a dream, we’re on the wings of Jesus, and in a wink hither and yon. It’s important to understand materialistic fame is not conceived by our Heavenly Father. In a split second, it will be gone when we jump on the wings of Jesus, so make it right, today, with our Lord!

And for those who look at our future as a stepping stone, the wings of Jesus will soon sweep down. We will all soon be with Jesus. I pray God will reserve a spot for those who see and believe in the Holy Spirit’s magic, resting with our brother in heaven, Jesus.

The Lord abounds! His presence is never-ending, and in these sad times of disillusion and isolation, hope in this dream is all we have – the thoughts of being on wings, someday… fly’n with Jesus!

Do You Fear God or Fear the World?

I wrote about the fear of God recently and what this concept should mean to Christians. The quote I said was, “He wants us to understand we should run to Him when the enemy approaches us.” So, today, I would like all my readers to take a closer look at your environment. Do you observe fear in many people’s eyes? It’s prevalent, too, in Christians who are supposed to be a model of God’s being.

Satan and the antichrist have joined forces to create havoc in the world, so we are submissive and live in fear, just as Satan likes us to do. Hiding in our homes, we stripped ourselves of freedom, isolated from society. Spiritually disconnected congregations are not fearing God and His promise to protect us. Instead, we’ve converted to the dictionary meaning of “an unpleasant often strong emotion caused by anticipation or awareness of danger.” This kind of fear is the opposite of faith!

I must ask, how much faith do you have in God’s power? Are you afraid to be in public or do you show anxiety walking outside your home? Are you scared to live by yourself? Do you fear losing a job, your home, or a loved one? Why live in fear?

When we truly know God’s love, our life is transformed, and fear is nonexistent. We must understand that mankind does not have control over any circumstances, for only the Lord develops our future. The love He instills in us is not weak. He does not want us to walk through life full of fear, worry, and anxiety.

The dictionary word fear begins with a thought, and where the mind goes, man will surely follow. For this reason, studying the Bible and meditating on its words is crucial for Christians. Fearing only God will give Him the respect He deserves, and in return, He will protect you from harm.

If God is on your side, what can man do to you? We must trust Him that all things will work together for His glory. You can’t fear God and fear the world at the same time. You are peaceful or fearful, but you can’t have both states of mind.

Today, stand against the evil forces at every corner and fear the God who keeps you whole, undivided, and safe. Have faith in His words! Be vigilante in prayer and prepare yourself for His second coming, not on the fears of this world.

Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil” Ecclesiastes 12:13–14.

A Message to All Christians

Today I write to you that my words may spread through every crack and crevice on God’s green earth. It is time for every man who calls themselves Christians, to rise against the satanic acts of our government. If you acknowledge and accept that government is above God’s laws, then you grouped yourself in with the sinners.

To those who carry the title of “minister,” get out of your homes, quit hiding in your houses. OPEN YOUR CHURCHES, ye of such little faith! You have limited respect and trust in God’s power. In fact, you support the law of the land and decriminalize that for which you stand. I beg all parishioners, worship in prayer for God’s Holy forgiveness. OPEN the CHURCHES and let faith be your insurance.

Again, I say this to the ministers who leave the seminary and go into ministry: If you are black and went to a black college, or white and went to a white college, CONGRATULATIONS! You committed your first sin! Jesus died to save souls, not the colors of skin tones. Here is your racism! Segregate your Houses of Prayer. To you who have accepted Christ Jesus as our personal Savior, may I ask? Is your Bible racist?? Did God print one for black congregations and one for white? Stop the sin!! Segregation began at home – in God’s house! Open the CHURCHES NOW!

To all those who fight for the goodness of God, praise His name in Christ Jesus! Experience fellowship in unity. Satan is trying to destroy this land, but be not afraid!

God spoke to me through 1 Thessalonians 2: 4-5. You don’t have to look it up, but here is what it says:

“On the contrary, we speak as those approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please people but God, who tests our hearts. You know we never used flattery, nor did we put on a mask to cover up greed-God is our witness.”

Need I say more!! Ministers, you have little faith in God, but pockets full of greed! 

Christians form your own congregations! Worship on the hillsides, by a lake, or in a meadow under the shade of a live oak. Join in unity and pray for salvation. Pray for the redemption of our holy land. 

Dear Lord, bring salvation to everyone. Blessed are the believers who repent against the isolation of our hearts and God’s holy laws. Forgive the pastors who will not shepherd their flock. God save the faithful, in Christ Jesus. Amen!    

The Lost Sheep

Let’s explore an imaginary scenario today. You own a large farm with a hundred sheep milling about the fields. One morning, as you rounded up the sheep and returned them to their stalls, you noticed one was missing. What would you do? Would you say, “Oh well,” and mark it off as lost or dead? Or out of compassion and concern, would you seek help to find the missing animal?

Last month, my wife wrote a story about the Mustard Seed parable. In the theme of Jesus’ ministry, my story, today, tells of the Parable of the Lost Sheep:

1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” 3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.  Luke 15:1-7

Many people are reserved when sharing their faith with others, but Jesus claimed Christians are to reach the lost with the hope of Christ. As the parable describes, Jesus spoke to the tax collectors and sinners despite the hissing Pharisees mocking Him. God focuses on the lost, not just believers.

The work of salvation was not intended to end with Christians, but to go out to the other “sheep.” All believers are His chosen ambassadors. Jesus no longer walks on the earth, so He asks us to speak on His behalf, for we have a ministry of reconciliation. He requires us to leave our comfort zones and selfish desires behind and seek the lost sheep in the field, and believe me, many have vanished from their Christian beliefs today.

What causes a Christian to lose their faith? Perhaps their faith was shallow from the start, or they doubt the Bible. Sometimes lost men feel they cannot compare to holier people, creating a weak soul. The negative news and social media can persuade fragile minds. This is the reason Christians need to study the Bible continually and memorize its words.

It is important to tell all sinners Jesus Christ will forgive their sins. Spend your time with them, just as Jesus spent time with the lost. Answer their questions and concerns of faith. Be an example of the goodness and mercy His forgiveness can bestow on their life. Never close the door on a friendship with a floundering soul, for you are subtly (re)planting the seed.

Now, go find that one lost sheep and hoist him upon your shoulders. Carry him back to the Lord’s arms with unconditional and non-judgmental love. Will you seek to follow Jesus’ example?

The Secret to Salvation

Steeped in my mind are the slender memories of Vietnam. Today, we witness the same violence on our own stomping grounds. I cannot help but seek peace with God, for it seems to be humanity’s only hope. The noise and chaotic atmosphere of gunfire and pepper spray capture the illusion that war is agony on earth.

Our unruly citizens battle for a belief they do not truly comprehend, but they still seek the opposition. Taking up arms to fight to the death, they create a hell in their own mind. A peaceful protest turns into another violent sunset, like an afternoon thunderstorm. Do we know what or who they are worshipping? What will be their secret to salvation?

Satan has deceived most of humanity to believe they have an immortal soul. It is only him who will laugh in the night air as the wounded lie in desperation and lawlessness settles in like a heavy dew. God’s willingness to grant us the freedom to make our own choices allows for the moral and physical evil.  Combatants will not escape the penalty for disobedience to the Lord, which is death, for the only thing that thrives in hatred is hate itself, not salvation.

A solid Christian will quickly recognize evildoers. Nonbelievers do not know the Bible in any capacity, nor do they lead a life according to God’s rules. Only goodness and love develops from faithfulness. Violent and self-destructive humans do not possess these characteristics because bitterness consumes their souls. They display traits of abusiveness, chaos, misstating truths, and rejecting reality.

Pope Francis was once asked in an interview if we should try to convert evil people, and his response was, “NEVER!” He pursued his comment by saying Christians should live by example and our testimony of the true faith in God.

If we analyze this theory, we quickly note that righteousness begins at home. When we raise our children to know God, the Ten Commandments, and the Bible, they will always remember this love, despite their choices later in life. That is a Christian parent’s duty, especially if we baptized the child in the church. Unless victims of brainwashing, our offspring will eventually realize this is their only way to salvation through Jesus Christ.

We cannot deal with evil on our own – this is a misconception. Christians must pray to our Heavenly Father and ask for deliverance. Give the wickedness of the world to God and let Him handle it. This is the secret to salvation!

These are horrible times of no direction or leadership, and God is our only miracle. Placing trust in Him will be the only peace you will receive in the concrete’s dirty gutters. Seek our Almighty Lord for vengeance, for it is His, not yours.

Thank you, Lord, for being there for us and allowing us to cry out to You in our times of need. God, there are things happening around us right now that we do not understand. Some of these things make us feel weak, helpless and afraid. Even in the midst of this, we know that You are the Lord.

We know that the situation is in Your hand, and we trust You. We beseech you for strength and for wisdom that we would be able to endure this situation and be able to handle it in a way that would bring glory to Your name.

In Jesus name. Amen.

Has your church opened its doors yet? If not, listen to Dana Bicks speak about conviction:

Faith in Failure

Failure is a word most, or many would just assume skirt around. How many times must we fail? There may be a job and home losses, relationships gone awry, wars, or even deaths of loved ones. God didn’t prepare us for such horrible conditions, as satisfaction had its limits. Only now do we turn to God with outstretched arms and give it all to Him. Don’t you know, in those unsuspected times of remorse, God loves using failures for His glory? Yes! It is time to watch and listen for His message. Have faith in failure!

“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.”  2 Corinthians 12:9

Our Father chooses those who are NOT perfectly polished and prepared for a purpose. The people you least suspect will be His chosen ones. A perfect biblical example was the Jew called Saul of Tarsus. Saul murdered and tortured Christians, yet as he walked to Damascus, God blinded him with a light, and Jesus appeared before him. Saul converted to Christianity and ultimately became an apostle.

Many people walk the earth today with a torrid past, yet they turn their lives over to God. I am one such example. I went to bed a carpenter and was awakened and told to write His messages to the world. It did not behoove me to argue with the Lord despite being dyslexic. For being a faithful servant, God has adorned me with countless blessings – it was my faith in failure.

Never give up on your faith… this is my best advice. What if the Wright brothers gave up, or Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, and Henry Ford? Sam Walton filed bankruptcy three times before he started Walmart. Look how their faith amidst catastrophes made them successful. As their failures came, their faith drove their power.

Humanity is born to fail, and it is only by faith that we learn we can do anything our heart desires. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off, pray for answers, and wait for God’s whisper. Adverse events can bring such love if you receive the confidence from our Almighty Father. We can either believe in the lies we are not good enough, or draw closer to God.

Let the Lord fill us with thankfulness and humility. As long as we fail, we know God is in control of our destiny. Stand against the tide in the turmoil of life and watch faith in failure grow more robust than ever.

The Quality of Life

What is the value of your quality of life? Perhaps as Christians, it’s understanding we do not do spontaneous things without putting God first into the equation. Does your quality of life reflect the image of our Holy God? Can we have a good quality of life if we are living in constant sin?

In my childhood years, I thought the quality of life only depended on attending church. We dressed in our finest apparel and polished loafers. Socializing with other members of the church created encouragement and acceptance. But was that ‘quality,’ or was it just an hour of mingling?

Christian living isn’t easy, but challenges and difficulties of life help us grow to have Jesus Christ’s mind and the character of God. He gave us the Bible to teach us the best way to live. However, very few Christians rarely make time to comprehend it. It is a wealth of information on the quality of life because it addresses fruitfulness, success, happiness, joy, purpose, and blessings. So, allow me to highlight some points on today’s topic.

In the New Testament, God relates the quality of life to an assurance of His favor and a sense of doing His will. In some circumstances, material blessings imply much, but the focus is not on physical possessions. Personal greed, lust, and pride are explicitly mentioned as the adversaries of a quality of life, for they create selfishness.

“And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”  Luke 12:15

So, what is a real quality of life for Christians? It is spending our days in the expectation and hope of eternal life in God’s kingdom. We can start by abiding by the Ten Commandments, which is a firm guideline for morals. Let’s add unity, harmony, and peace with the Lord and others into the equation. It is loving all God’s children, and sometimes using ‘tough love’ in His image. We should remain in constant prayer and often praise His Holy name.

I ask, is there peace inside your heart, soul, and mind? It’s about time that all Christians get off the fence and plow their ground. Respect the written Word of God, for your salvation is at risk. Do not attempt to minimize or change the Laws of God to suit your own needs.

Take this moment to ask God to come and enter your body of flesh and heal your spirit. It’s a temple, so dust off your soul, vacuum your spirit, and cleanse the ungodly thoughts. Now you will begin to find the Christian quality of life.

God bless you!

The Little Floating Seed

Written by Anne Bicks, Editor of Bicks Books LLC

As an inquisitive adolescent girl, I used to play in my Mother’s jewelry box. One day, she sat me down on her bed and showed me a beautiful pin. Its beauty mesmerized me because it had a little floating seed in a bubble. My mom was a dedicated Christian, so when she told me this seed had a story in the Bible, I was not surprised by her claim. My Grandmother, who also was a strong Christian, handed it down to her.

After my Mother died, I gently pulled the pin out of her jewelry box. Besides the deep, personal meaning it had to me, I wanted to learn more about the “Mustard Seed” parable.

The Bible tells that Jesus taught his followers the Laws of His Father in parables. You may ask, “What is a parable?” A parable is a story used to illustrate a moral lesson. Jesus spoke them to discover who would seek further understanding of their meaning, or who would try to find a higher interpretation of the Kingdom of God.

Here is The Mustard Seed parable as written in the Bible:

“He told them another parable: “The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field. Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.”  Matthew 13:31-32

This parable was first told while Jesus preached from a ship to a large crowd of people on the shore. The second time it was recorded took place late in 29 A.D. He was making his way toward Jerusalem for Hanukkah.

Mustard seed in the field can be outsized by many plants – that is until grows. It is then considered the most vigorous plants to live on earth. This parable compares the Kingdom of God to the mustard seed.

Though Jesus believed heaven will start out small, it will eventually grow in large numbers with those who have a strong faith. So, what was the deeper meaning of my mother telling me about the mustard seed at a young age?

It was to say when children (or even adult new believers) begin to love Jesus, their love is like the tiny mustard seed. Our love for God and the church will grow bigger, eventually growing into a strong tree. The tree will be large enough to have birds come sit on its branches. Let me point out who the birds represent in the parable. They denote the demons of Satan, who continuously try to infiltrate the church.

The underlying message of this parable is this:

Love the Lord our God and have powerful faith. Praise His name so the church will grow His Kingdom of heaven. The greatest things start from the smallest beginnings, so always plant those seeds. Do not allow the vultures to sit on your branches… let God’s Kingdom prevail!

Virus and Violence to Victory

Rampant corruption runs deep in our country. We hide in our homes and pray things will get better. Virus, violence, and victory… which one do you stand for?

Corruption and undermining good intentions have progressed as long as life has existed. We can start with Cain and Abel, where hate and greed dominated the soul of a brother. But bigger than this was the man who walked with Jesus named Judas. He betrayed Jesus and sold His soul for thirty pieces of silver.

What’s new today is not new at all because it’s just another viral wave of interruptions. Many people try to ward off the godly intentions of men. Through the course of history, our founding fathers fought feverishly for our freedom. A hundred years later, civil wars brought unrest, and thousands died at the hands of the enemy. Years later, we fought to protect what man deemed worthy of God’s protection.

Today, we watch another wave of hatred. It is still the men who give their sweat defending humanity’s rights from viruses and violence, so we may once again live in victory. Every war had viruses that plagued soldiers. “Agent Orange,” I remember, was the disease that killed so many of my friends who served in Vietnam. Now, COVID 19 is as viral as any war ever seen on our land. It can be said the virus and violence running through the veins of our precious country is just another attack to hinder our sweat equity.

Victory is the vibrant whispers of standing together, believing in one God, and going home to a place of peace, as our Lord Jesus promises us. No viruses or violence will be… just the sweet triumph of living where evil is not permitted behind the gates of Heaven.

I lost a talented friend and follower this week. He stood for the men who wore their sweat on their brow and was the greatest fiddle player in the world, Charlie Daniels. He gave his life to be with Christ while hoping he made this world a better home for America. I hope a comrade, a soldier, or a statue will stand in honor of this good man’s memory. God graced us with his presence. We should all be blessed to call him “friend.”

From virus to victory and all the violence we’ve endured, let us praise God for our strength, for we are stronger in numbers. No virus can claim where eternity prevails! Jesus paid our debt to be free from the sins of the world and non- believers. Rise, my friends! Our Redeemer lives graciously in our hearts and homes.

Virus and violence (is there a difference??) have no home in our hearts or home when we live in victory with Jesus. Praise God, won’t you? For it is He glowing our bright light. Listen to the lyrics, the sweet sounds of victory for God is about to bring us all home.

A Psalm of David (Psalm 108: 1-6; 12-13)

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make melody.

    Awake, my soul!

Awake, O harp and lyre! I will awake the dawn.

I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples, and I will sing praises to you among the nations.

For your steadfast love is higher than the heavens, and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, and let your glory be over all the earth.

Give victory with your right hand, and answer me, so that those whom you love may be rescued.

O grant us help against the foe, for human help is worthless. With God we shall do valiantly; it is he who will tread down our foes.
