Devotion for Week of September 9, 2012 - WHEN GOOD MEN STAND IN GOD’S WAY

WHEN GOOD MEN STAND IN GOD’S WAY

Psalm 119:5, “O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes!”    

During the War Between the States there were godly Christians fighting on both sides.  When the North and South would pray for God’s guidance and for victory, how could God answer the prayers of both?  Was God for the North, or was God for the South?  

Devotion for the Week of August 26, 2013 - THE MORE THINGS CHANGE; THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME!

THE MORE THINGS CHANGE;
THE MORE THEY STAY THE SAME!

Matthew 5:34-36, “But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is God's throne: [35] Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King. [36] Neither shalt thou swear by thy head, because thou canst not make one hair white or black.”

Devotion for the Week of August 5, 2013 - TWO MEN WHO STOOD IN THE GAP

TWO MEN WHO STOOD IN THE GAP

Ezekiel 22:30, “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”

Throughout history, God has been looking for those who are willing to stand for truth and stay His hand of judgment.  After the War Between the States, God found such a leader in the person of Dwight L. Moody.  D. L. Moody was brought to Christ by his Sunday school teacher Edward Kimbell in 1856. 

Devotion for the Week of July 22, 2013 - THE LAST STRAW

THE LAST STRAW

Proverbs 14:34, “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”

Most are familiar with the old phrases; “ The last straw” or “The straw that broke the camel’s back”  The idea is that a long period of patiently waiting for change and not seeing any finally brings that patience to an end with one last action.

Devotion for the Week of July 15, 2013 - THE GREAT COMPROMISER

THE GREAT COMPROMISER

Matthew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”  

The issue of slavery was always lurking in America’s history, ready to divide and destroy the Union of our nation.  During the 1820 to 1850 period, one man helped put off the inevitable clash with his compromises.  That man was Henry Clay, who was known as the great compromiser.

REPORT FROM THE 150TH COMMEMORATION OF THE BATTLE OF GETTYSBURG

Here is our report from this past weekend at the 150th commemoration of the Battle of Gettysburg.  At the outset let me say this was my 28th Gettysburg re-enactment in 34 years of re-enacting.  I think I can say this was the best and most awesome re-enactment I have ever attended.  BTW, this will not be a short report.
