The Destruction of Presumption

Number 14:44; 44 “Nevertheless, in their presumption they went up toward the highest point in the hill country, though neither Moses nor the ark of the Lord’s covenant moved from the camp” (NIV)

“…in their PRESUMPTION…” Another well-intentioned, man-made plan produces failure, and in cases like this, death.

There is a fine line between living by FAITH, and acting on PRESUMPTION. Both look the same to any observer, but God looks on the heart and it’s motivations. How many failures of faith have you heard about, when the cause was, presumption.

I’ve had multiple failures, and many of them painful and destructive, and all of them based on presumption, while calling it “living by faith”. Looking back I can see many consistencies in those failures. The most common was arrogance, not humility. God will NEVER bless arrogance.

The next time you are alone with God , ask Him, “Please show me where I am living by faith, and where I am acting on presumption. In Jesus Name, Amen.” Then be honest enough to repent where necessary and make the changes necessary to cut presumption from every part of your life.


Know This. Your Sins Will Catch You

Numbers 32:23 “But if you fail to do this, you will be sinning against the Lord; and you may be sure that your sin will find you out.” (NIV)

No possible escape. It’s repentance or nothing. It’s the cleansing power of the Blood of Jesus or you will die with your sins identifying you as one who refused the saving Grace of God.

There is no “excusing” with God. Over the last 60 years our society has been bombarded with excuses for people’s behavior. Remember the famous “Sneakers” defense? For those that are 30 years or younger, a defendant on trial for multiple murders came up with the defense that his mother ate too many Sneakers while pregnant, and some chemical in the candy bars affect him and that why he murdered all those people. That was the beginning of all the idiotic defenses attorneys conjure up to get their guilty clients off. It has become so common place, that excuses have become so much a part of our society as trends in fashion. Every one has an excuse; there is no personal responsibility any more.

Not with God. Sin is sin. Black and white. Society (and the 9th Circuit Court) will let you get away with your excuses, but not the Eternal God. Judgement is unavoidable without the cleansing, saving Grace of God through Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and that only by genuine repentance. Any by the way, only HE can decide whether your repentance is genuine. There is no other escape.


I would like to speak to you face to face. I’m on Skype now and my address is Jerry.Jill1. Give a video call and lets get to know one another.

What Happenes When Any Nation Thinks They Can Steal from God?

I know that I am not the only one who knows he history of the Middle East, especially that history around Israel. All this talk about the Palestinians becoming its own State, irritates me to no end.

Let’s look at what God has already said about that land. Leviticus 25:23 (NIV), “‘The land must not be sold permanently, because the land is mine and you reside in my land as foreigners and strangers.”


Do we really need to review what has happened in history when any nation thought they could take from God? Do you really need to be warned about the catastrophes waiting for any nation, or group of nations, that think they can steal from God, and His people, and get away with it?

“Mr. President. Who do you think you are to approve rapping of any nation by another. These squatters have taken what does not belong to them, and you say it’s okay, and Israel make peace with them. I suppose that makes sense to you based on your positions on giving ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT squatters the same right as native-born citizens. Does sovereignty mean anything to you and your Socialist Party? Stop supporting law breaking, known-terrorist organizations like Hamas, Palestine and Hezbollah from taking what is not theirs.  God said He would bless those the bless Israel, and curse those that didn’t. Please, Mr.President, BLESS ISRAEL, and tell Hamas, Palestine and Hezbollah to go somewhere else. Yes, they will threaten war, and they are stupid enough to think that they are tougher than God and His people, Israel. Notice, Israel is not impressed with their threats?’

“Mr. President, please stop being the enabler of Hamas, Palestine and Hezbollah. Let the war happen. Support Israel, and what God’s blessings return to America.”
