Unquestioned Revelation

May 28 Daily Devotional

Unquestioned Revelation

In that day you will ask Me nothing.  JOHN 16:23

When is “that day”? It is when the ascended Lord makes you one with the Father. “In that day” you will be one with the Father just as Jesus is, and He said, “In that day you will ask Me nothing.” Until the resurrection life of Jesus is fully exhibited in you, you have questions about many things. Then after a while you find that all your questions are gone— you don’t seem to have any left to ask. You have come to the point of total reliance on the resurrection life of Jesus, which brings you into complete oneness with the purpose of God. Are you living that life now? If not, why aren’t you?

“In that day” there may be any number of things still hidden to your understanding, but they will not come between your heart and God. “In that day you will ask Me nothing”— you will not need to ask, because you will be certain that God will reveal things in accordance with His will. The faith and peace of John 14:1 has become the real attitude of your heart, and there are no more questions to be asked. If anything is a mystery to you and is coming between you and God, never look for the explanation in your mind, but look for it in your spirit, your true inner nature— that is where the problem is. Once your inner spiritual nature is willing to submit to the life of Jesus, your understanding will be perfectly clear, and you will come to the place where there is no distance between the Father and you, His child, because the Lord has made you one. “In that day you will ask Me nothing.”

From My Utmost for His Highest Updated Edition


This is very special to me; you see when I was dead briefly (looking down upon my own ambulance) I had a “knowing” that anything which I needed to know, was plainly there for the asking!             

It had nothing to do with me knowing everything, it was just a spiritual presence of an all knowing God and truth…
We who know Him, are immediately with him when our hearts stop, simply because he is already with us now!

The Changing Culture

For God and Country

I was watching CBS NEWS last evening on the new diversity of West Point, I thought it a pretty fair interview from a progressive standpoint, but I still struggle with merit promotions standards verses being all inclusive.

I ask myself, why can’t we have both, being that all peoples are seen as equal, even despite their physical make up (gender) or ethnic origin? When I started in my military career in the U.S.C.G. we all had to learn how to swim effectively involving the rescue of others and ourselves. These were the so-called standards at the time. Yet I have noticed over the years that politically correct diversity has taken center stage. When I worked in Army watercraft (across from the Coast Guard Yard) in Baltimore, I read a pamphlet stating that the Coast Guard was no longer focused upon the “old” level of training they once provided, but rather diversification in the ranks.

This troubled me, as again I thought; “why can’t they make sure that the newer more diversified Coat Guard do both”? Would we pay a “substandard” surgeon to operate on us, or would we expect that surgeon to have the best skills and training required?

The answer should be obvious to anyone with a grain of common sense! Yet I have noticed that the progressive movement likes to use semanticist phrases; like we need to change the standards, but not lower them. Short of technological advancements in lieu of human strength, that makes little sense to me. Specifically, what does that mean?

It all gets down to performance in any given task, does it not? Or, in simplified terms, can you do the job or not? If the quality of “all types of peoples” are all up to speed so to speak, then why do we need to focus on being diversified; it should be like the blind justice symbol in weighing the actions of the individual, should it not?

Changing a standard verse keeping a standard are at odds with each other, and to say we are changing the standards, yet not lowering them are nonsensical. It really gets down to what are the standards for all peoples involved. As you cannot have one set of standards for one group, and a different set of standards for another; and if you do we call that injustice, which no free society can enforce and expect to remain healthy.

It is my belief that everything will fall to the lowest common denominator, and a level of degradation will be the result for all: should we not expect the highest performance and ethical levels out of all people. It is much easier to spiral downwards and fall behind as a nation in the interest of all being equal; than it is to expect everyone to carry their portion of responsibility as a united people.

So, a clear-cut standard should exist for all to attempt to uphold, and should one fall short of doing so, then others can help that individual be lifted up, rather than us all spiraling downward. The freedom to excel is what makes a nation collectively strong, but sluggishness in the interest of “being fair” will only lead to ruin!

The big question to me is: how can we have pure multiculturalism, yet expect to keep the same standards for all our citizens?

Happy Memorial Day!

Not by word, but by power

Published on May 10, 2019

1 Corinthians 4: 19-21
19 But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. 20 For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. 21 What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?
1 Corinthians 2:4
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power:

The Scapegoat

Published on May 8, 2019

It seems to me very significant spiritually, that Satan has adopted the goat as his symbol. The Bible is normally geared towards the disciple of Jesus Christ, yet it is used by the world and his wife often to justify themselves before an all-knowing God. Matthew 10 : 30-40 speaks volumes about the “sufferings of Christ” found in those whom the Lord has chosen to do a work within. This is a spiritual work, and it is often hidden on a conscious level from those around us. Yet the actual child of God will feel it, and suffer it, unlike anyone else around them! I think that the scapegoat is normally of strong moral courage, and that’s why they are perhaps picked, they are a type of Christ, but the blows to them are no less painful.

Different God’s

Published on Apr 30, 2019

The “New Age” seeks a different god, than the God of the Bible: and the world will worship him, yet reject the other(s), in now the end of the age… I examine Alan Watts ~ Society Is A Hoax , Take Control Of Your Life – video, and what I know of the Bible, and “so called” 19th century thinking, all now considered antiquated! Now we are in the NEW AGE when science is god, and all-knowing man is supreme… It won’t be long now brethren!

The steps of the righteous…

Published on Apr 23, 2019

Are, Ordained of God. If the Lord is with you no one can be against you! I decided tonight to tell a little story about how the Lord “showed up those” who wanted to “show us up” as inferior… But some times, it is the righteous who are allowed to rise to the occasion and be on top, but it usually takes some testing of our faith first!
