Nothing Really

So I'm here cause I'm not sure what to write about. I was looking for a Rick Joyner video I was going to post on my prophetic blog but was unable to find the particular video, so I was stumped. Bumped rhymes with stumped but then can't move beyond that. I have been reading a book on poetry so that is where my mind is creative expression. Let's see if I can't just flow a little:

No I can't do it, just don't have it in me at the moment. Sorry. Anyway, I am going to wish you a good night and that the blessing of the Lord be upon you.

The Birth of Christ

I can write here right now because I am not really sure what I want to write about. What? The holidays are here: Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. In fact Thanksgiving just passed and today is the day after Black Friday. Yes, it's Saturday, evening and here I am at home sharing a little bit. But what? Christmas is coming? Or should I write like this: Christmas is coming!

Speaking of Christmas...interesting to note I have been reading one of my textbooks from a class I took last year or so (haha no I didn't really read it then, for after all I wasn't taking the class for credit) and for the past few days have been covering the date Jesus was born. When was Jesus born?

This being a book of tradition (The Words and Works of Jesus Christ by J. Dwight Pentecost), it argues in favor of a mid-winter birth in either 4 BC or 5 BC. It has been quite awhile since I started to believe Jesus was probably born on the Feast of Tabernacles (and not in 1 AD), but I find their reasoning interesting if even I am not persuaded. To me history is interesting, it keeps my attention, and the birth of Christ is not only historical but a great spiritual event.

Much has been written and taught about the Feasts of the Lord these days, and their significance to Christianity, so I don't suppose writing that Jesus may have born on the Feast of Tabernacles to be a surprise to everyone. One book I particularly like that argues in favor of this point is A Prophetic Calendar: The Feasts of Israel by Jill Shannon.

Though Pentecost's book shows why the shepherds may have been out tending to their sheep on a mid-winter night, if offers no contradiction to Zechariah conducting his priestly service in "late June or July" after which John the Baptist would have been conceived, and Jesus conceived six months after that. That all said, I will simply leave you with John 1:14:

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

God's Good Plans

We serve a good God! From the rising of the sun to its going down, the name of the Lord is to be praised! Amen? Amen!

Praise be to God, the one and only true God who from the foundation of the world existed:

In the beginning of the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

I don't know what you might be going through at this moment, but I know God is a good God and He has good plans for you:

I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11

God has good plans for us and thinks good thoughts for us, for if we understand "expected end" correctly is is a "hope and future." God wants to give us a hope and a future. Those are the thoughts that He thinks toward us, good plans, blessed plans, a blessed life.

Delight thyself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart. Psalms 37:4

Yes, goodness awaits God's people, the desires of your heart are just waiting to be given to you as you delight yourself in the Lord.

My Church Streaming

Since I don't really post on this blog very much anymore, I thought why not share the latest with my church's streaming widget:
