Bless the Lord O My Soul

Bless the Lord !

Bless the Lord !

O Lord You are my God

I will exalt You,

I will praise You name,

For You have done wonderful things;

Your counsels of old are faithfulness and truth.

For You have made a city a ruin,

A fortified city a ruin,

A palace of foreigners to be a city no more;

It will never be rebuilt,

Therefore the strong people will glorify You;

The city of the terrible nations will fear You.

For You have been a strength to the poor,

A strength to the needy in his distress,

A refuge from the storm,

A shade from the heat;

For the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against a wall.      Isaiah 25: 1-5     NKJV

The Lord God allowed His servant, the Prophet Isaiah to see in progression, a view to the ‘End of the age’ with it’s destructions and disobedience of humanity in addition to the mighty hand of God’s wrath in response.

Even in the midst of overwhelming visions of things to come, Isaiah knows that God Almighty still makes a refuge for those who love and reverentially fear Him.

I believe this declaration of loving, worshipful praise broke free from the heart of Isaiah just as it did to his predecessor, King David within Psalm 103 (ref. verse 1).

How can we not ‘Bless the Lord’ from the bottom of hearts, from the depths of our soul?

Let us: Magnify the Lord, exalt His name. Our God sits high and looks low, blessing those who love Him with their whole heart. If you don’t know the Lord, you can stop right where you are and ask Him into your heart today.

Let’s Pray:  “Lord Jesus, I ask Your forgiveness. Only You can forgive my sin. I believe you died on the cross for me. Please come into my heart today.” Amen

If you prayed that prayer today, please contact us through the comment line.

‘And as always’… Be Blessed!   The Lightkeeper

I'm Adopted

Look at those children over there:  America, Africa, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Worldwide.

They are being abused, neglected, brainwashed and tortured. These are criminal acts. The perpetrator must be brought to justice. This madman has been getting away with these crimes against humanity for years and it seems that everyone is powerless to stop him.

In fact, whenever an investigation is called for; the investigators become victims of this cunning criminal; played for fools. Someone has to stand up for these innocent children without surrendering to bribes, threats, or scare tactics; although this thug is known to carry out his threats; even murder.

In the past, many investigators that have sought this Master Criminal for the cause of justice has come back as his paid speaker even defending his heinous actions while using positions of authority to gain support for their corrupted views.

Meanwhile, it is the children who are being slaughtered; enlisted as unwitting puppets against themselves; forced to carry out their own hideous genocide. Due to lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6), some of these victims have sided with their abusers [aka: Stockholm syndrome] and fought against those who would champion their cause.

Diabolical Scheme:

If all of the children of the world hate one another; if all of the officials accept bribes and if people outside the direct zones of attack are made to believe that the perpetrator of these crimes does not exist; then you have a basic outline for the chaos that moves unperceived across the earth by the hand of Satan and his demonic minions.

Dateline Israel:

On a hill far away, was an old rugged cross. This hill was Golgotha; the ‘Place of the Skull.’ This was the skull of Goliath (Yes, “that” Goliath); the inbred evil giant who tried to beat up a little kid named David and usurp the power of the nation of Israel.

When the Israelites buried Goliaths head outside the city walls, the head was so large that the burial site had to be mounded very high; it was a hill. The city gate used to exit toward this hill was where sheep (sorry, but sheep do smell awful) were led in and out of the city. This was known as, The Sheep Gate. Also it was the city dump, just outside of this gate, leading to Golgotha, where you-know-who’s head was buried.

You see, the Israelites were glad Goliath was dead and they were glad that David (who later became King) had killed him; however, there was no way they were going to bury this guy’s head in a place to be venerated. After all, he’d tried to kill the whole town, overthrow the whole army and take over all of Israel as a paid assassin. So, the city dump was where Goliath was memorialized. Additionally, sheep parts were dumped there after religious sacrifices and routine market-slaughter as well as typical city refuses (trash).

What a place. In the words of the late great Bette Davis: “What a dump!” Agreed, however, this is a very special place. It is the exact spot where we (the children of earth) were ADOPTED over two thousand years ago.


Covenants, like contracts and oaths were made on top of something practical (surety) and/or meaningful (symbolic) for both parties to the contract. Hang in there, this isn’t old world ‘legalese’ since it’s no different from what we do in the 21st Century, i.e., put up your car’s Pink Slip to get a cash loan; to ‘give your hand’ in marriage; or to “swear on your mother’s grave,” etc.

So, on top of this meaningful place (Golgotha), the blood-shedding guarantee was performed and vows were exchanged to detail the ‘terms and conditions’ of the promise [covenant, oath]; the contract was set: One perfect (sinless) human life is taken in exchange, so all other parties, now and forever, can go free from the damnation of Satan. That’s it. That is the deal.

The Adoption:

How come so many do not understand what Jesus came to do for humanity, but we fully understand the fine print and principles of those handy Pay-Day-Loans? Okay, moving right along: Back to Golgotha; to buy-back all the children of earth (virtual orphans), so they’d never have to submit to this supernatural mass-murderer’s rampage; we were adopted, and then signed on as Heirs in Jesus’ Last Will and Testament.

Our adoption took place on a Friday with many witnesses. Only one person (the Testator-Jesus) who had absolutely no contributing factors of guilt, stood as representative for the many at trial. His self representation was accepted; although he didn’t offer a self-defense and no one testified on his behalf. The deal was set and He was declared “Guilty.” They led the condemned Jesus (the perfect Lamb of sacrifice) outside of the city walls by way of the Sheep Gate.

When Jesus, the condemned representative for the whole human race arrived at the place of execution [Golgotha], a different type of execution simultaneously took place. The terms of a Divine contract was executed. The accused agreed to take all of the: Punishment, neglect, abuse, pain, suffering, sorrow, sickness, diseases and even death; upon Himself on behalf of the children of earth. In exchange, the perpetrator [Satan] must let the children of earth go free [now and eternally].

Terms and Conditions

Most contracts are executed on paper and sealed in ink. This Divine contract was a very special, irrevocable adoption contract; whose instrument was the live body of the man, Jesus (not paper); the seal was not a raised stamp, but nails pounded into His hands and feet; while the signature was not ink, but His very own blood.

Beneficiary Rights and Responsibilities:

So, from henceforth and forever until He comes: If we believe (with our heart) and confess (with our mouth) that Jesus is Lord; you are saved (Adopted). The terms of your adoption and inheritance as heirs to the covenant (contract), along with all its’ rights, privileges and responsibilities were set for eternity at Calvary [aka: “Skull”, aka “Golgotha”]. These rights are spelled out throughout the Holy Bible.


Just one little shepherd boy, David, demonstrated for all time; the catalyst and attraction of the Power of God to come to our rescue. The catalyst and attraction of the Most High is the same today as it was for David and as it was for our Lord and Savior Jesus, the Christ: It is by FAITH (Ephesians 2:8).

Be Blessed!

Scriptures: I Samuel, chapter 17, Matthew, chapters 26-28 and Romans, chapter 10, verses 8-13

Five Smooth Stones

30 01 2012

Five Smooth Stones

Prayer, Love, Courage, Humility and Effort. These are the five smooth stones Believer’s in Christ Jesus must hold ready to defeat the giants in their life today.The account of David the shepherd boy defeating the giant Goliath with a stone and a slingshot is legendary. You can read all about it in I Samuel 17: 1-58.

Why did David need five stones? Goliath had four other brothers! Why ‘smooth’ stones? Those stones came from the brook called Kedron. They had been smoothed by the water flowing over them for many years.

Today, we need smooth stones to defeat the giants in our lifetime. Those stones are found in the word of God; polished smooth in our hand as weapon to defeat the enemy of our soul on a day-to-day basis. The victory was in David’s confession of faith to what God could do through him. That’s the same confident confession we can claim today. Read about David and Goliath again and let the word of God polish your stones. Be Blessed
