Friday's Mad Mad World!


Happy Mad Friday Saints! Here's the latest and greatest end time news. Beware, it isn't pretty!

Things that stood out to me
  • Volcanoes, Earthquakes, and Fires, oh my!
  • The Middle East is on the brink of war. (Can anyone say Gog-Magog?)
  • Socialism, seriously?
  • A skull shaped asteroid is heading our way! Huh?
  • China is going after Christians big time
  • First Transgender nominee for Governor, and she hates Christians. Go figure
  • Drag Queens, Gays in Children's movies, and why not let our kids share a bathroom? 

Get on your knees and pray. This world is fast slipping into the devil's hands. His time to rule is fast approaching and it isn't going to be pretty. Put your trust in Jesus and cling to Him so that you will be found worthy to escape the things coming on this earth.

When the storms of life come, the wicked are whirled away, but the godly have a lasting foundation.

Proverbs 10:25 




Monday, August 13, 2018

Let us cross over to the other side!



On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.” Mark 4:35

Do you know Jesus is saying the same thing to you and me today? If you are a committed follower of Jesus, the moment you repented and gave your life to him is the moment He held out His hand and said to you, "Let us cross over to the other side."

What other side?  In the story in Mark, it was the other side of the Sea of Galilee. Jesus had just completed many long days of preaching and healing to the multitudes and He was tired! In fact, it was very difficult for Him to find any time alone or any time of peace. So, He got in the boat with His disciples and said, "Let's go to the other side."

But what is our other side?  Honestly, this became very clear to me last week when I seemed to be drowning in earthly problems. Have you ever had seasons where it seems one problem after another keeps coming your way and you wonder when it will end?  Well, that's been me lately.  During these times the devil likes to whisper in your ear things like:
  • God doesn't love you
  • God doesn't care
  • You've done something wrong and God's punishing you
  • See, God's promises aren't real... His power doesn't work
  • Your prayers are never going to get answered
  • Did God really say...?

Sound familiar? Our enemy has not changed his tactics in over 6000 years. However, sometimes I admit to wondering what is going on!  Then the Lord brought me to the story above in Mark and He reminded me that this life here on earth is just a journey.... a short boat ride to the other side.

And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow.  

A storm arose suddenly! Imagine that. A problem, a struggle in this fallen world? I laugh because that's what this life really is... a series of problems and struggles and let's face it, storms!  Why are we so shocked! Why do we think just because we are followers of Jesus that we won't face storms?  Some pastors may tell you that... they may twist Scripture to say that you'll have your best life here and now. Let me tell you something, if that's the case, if this is my best life and heaven is no better than this, I'm in real trouble.

Let us cross over to the other side,  Jesus says with a smile as He extends His hand.

And when the storm rose, He was fast asleep in the boat. It even mentions that he had a pillow!  That always makes me laugh. I have such a hard time sleeping in my own bed... and here Jesus was so calm and at peace, He could sleep on a ship in a storm!  But there's much to be learned from that.

  • Jesus is with you in the storm
  • Jesus is not concerned one bit about the storm 

The truth is neither should we be concerned one bit about the story. Why? Because Jesus said

Let us cross to the other side.

That means that you WILL cross to the other side. He never lies. He never exaggerates. His Words never return to Him void.

And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” (Don't you care about my problems? Don't you hear my prayers?)  Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace,be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”

Jesus had told them they were going to the other side. Hence, they should not have been worried about the storm. They should have believed Him... that they would make it to the other side.

What about us? Do we believe Jesus that we will make it to heaven, that He's with us every step of the way. That if He desires, He can calm the storm?

Equally important and the lesson I believe the Lord was teaching me. Why are you even looking at the storm? Why you concentrating on the problem? Look ahead at the shore on the other side. That's your destiny. That's where you're going. These storms? They are nothing in comparison to where you're going. They can't hurt you if I'm with you. They can't stop you from your eternal destiny as long as you stay in the boat and with me. In other words, rise above the storm, walk on the water with me, and together, hand in hand, we will reach those glorious shores together!

Friday's (Saturday's) Mad Mad World!

Greetings Warrior Bride of Christ. The above is how I picture myself dashing toward Jesus when I first see Him. You too?  (Even if you're a guy, that's okay)  I believe this picture will come true sooner than we think!  Hence, I don't list all these signs to depress you, but to get you excited about the coming of our King. And also to pray for the Lost and spread the Gospel in any way the Lord leads. Time is short!

Have a Blessed Weekend and don't forget to look up and keep your thoughts on heaven!

The Reckless Release day Celebration!

(My normal Friday's Mad Mad World will be posted tomorrow on Saturday!)

Hi everyone, I'm very excited to announce that the next addition to my Legacy of the King's Pirates series, The Reckless, is finally here!  Although this is volume 6, you don't have to read the first 5 books to enjoy this one. However if you do enjoy this one, you might want to go back and check out the others. The Redemption is the first book in the series and the Ebook is only 99 cents!

 In honor of this momentous occasion, I'm giving away three signed paperbacks!

The Reckless
She wanted to live forever young
He wanted to preach the Gospel to the poor


Together they face mutinies, deserted islands, battles, and villains as they sail on a tsunami of adventure throughout the Caribbean in search of the Fountain of Youth!


Captain Reena Charlisse Hyde always gets what she wants. She wanted to be the best female pirate on the Caribbean and she is. She wants to find the mythical Fountain of Youth and she knows the location of the map. And now after searching across the Caribbean for the man she intends to marry, she has found him. There are only two problems. He doesn't want to be found, and he's on board a Royal Navy frigate—the last place a pirate should venture.


Frederick Carlton thought he was finally safe from the woman who held his heart. But her attempt to rescue him labels him a deserter from the Royal Navy. He’s turned his life over to God and plans on being a preacher, but every moment he spends with Reena drives him deeper into a past he longs to forget.


Mutinies, deserted islands, treasure maps, battles, traitors, and villains send the couple sailing on a tsunami of adventure throughout the Caribbean in search of the Fountain of Youth. Frederick longs to escape the lure of the woman he loves. Reena longs for Frederick to love her again. But in the end, they will both have to choose between eternal youth or the lives of everyone they love.


The Hero
Frederick Carlton

Frederick is the son of Captain Kent Carlton, an infamous and once-evil pirate who plagued the Caribbean. Born out of a violent act and illegitimacy, Frederick battles self-worth and the ability to do anything good with his life. Pirate blood flows strong in his veins, and he spent several years adhering its call with his lady love, Reena Hyde, by his side. Together they raided ships, acquired treasure, battled enemies, and loved each other immensely. But God's call on Frederick's life to preach the Gospel finally overcame the lure of sin, and Frederick left the life of a pirate, rededicated his life to God, and ran as far away from Reena as he could.






The Heroine
Reena Charlisse Hyde

Captain Reena Charlisse Hyde will never give up on finding her one true love, Freddy. Even when the stubborn man has been hiding from her for over a year in the Caribbean. In truth, she intends to marry him, and she knows, despite his current disposition, he feels the same way. How could he not after the years of love and adventure they'd spend together pirating the seas!  As soon as she found him and they were together again, he'd give up his fool notion to become a preacher! Bah! What fun is there in a life of poverty and servitude? She'd seen her parents suffer all their lives under the strict hand of God. Nay, Freddy would see reason. Especially since she knew exactly where they could find the one and only map to the Fountain of Youth! Then they could sail these seas from one adventure to another, loving each other forever!

Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house (ship) upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Matthew 7:24-25

Don't forget who you are!!!


One of the enemy's biggest lies to those of us who are followers of Christ is that we are powerless, that we live "under the circumstances", that we are barely slogging through life clinging to Jesus's robe, inundated with struggles and trials that are just a normal part of life.

Yet when I read through the Bible, I get a different vision of believers. I get a vision of a victorious people, a strong, courageous people, of rulers and priests, of the wise and discerning, of people who possess the power to walk on water.

In order to list just a "sample" of these truths, I did a search through the New Testament for the words "In Christ" and "In Him" and here's what I found.

In Christ you


  • Have redemption - deliverance, rescue, atonement for all sins  (Romans 3:24)
  • Are dead to sin, alive to God (Romans 6:11)
  • Under NO condemnation (Romans 8:1)
  • Are free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:2)
  • Can never be separated from the Love of God (Romans 8:38-39)
  • Together with other believers form one body (Romans 12:5)
  • Have wisdom, righteousness, and sanctification (1 Corinthians 1:30)
  • Are made alive (1 Corinthians 15:22)
  • Know that all of God's promises are "Yes" and "Amen" (2 Corinthians 1:20)
  • Are led forth in triumph (2 Corinthians 2:14)
  • No longer have a veil over your eyes (2 Cor 3:14)
  • Are a new creation (2 Cor 5:14)
  • Have liberty (Galatians 2:4)
  • Are justified by faith (Galatians 2:16)
  • Have the blessing of Abraham (Galatians 3:14)
  • Are daughters and sons of God (Galatians 3:26)
  • Are ONE people, one family (Galatians 3:28)
  • Are blessed with every spiritual blessing in Heavenly places (Ephesians 1:3)
  • Know the mystery of His will (Ephesians 1:9)
  • Are raised up and sit in heavenly places (Right now!)  (Ephesians 2:6)
  • Receive ALL of God's grace, riches, and kindness (Ephesians 2:7)
  • Are God's masterpiece, created for good works (Ephesians 2:10)
  • Have been brought near to God (Ephesians 2:13)
  • Are a partaker of the promise (Ephesians 3:6)
  • Have the mind of Christ (Philippians 2:5)
  • Have a prize of an upward call (Philippians 3:14)
  • Have a peace that guards your heart and mind (Philippians 4:7)
  • Have all your needs met by God's riches (Philippians 4:19)
  • Have been brought to the fullness of God and your flesh was crucified (Colossians 2:9-11)
  • Will be raised from the dead at the rapture (1 Thess 4:16)
  • Have a promise of life (2 Tim 1:1)
  • Are saved and called with a holy calling (2 Tim 1:9)
  • Have faith and love (2 Tim 1:13)
  • Are called to eternal glory  (1 Peter 5:10)
  • Are a fountain of living water (John 4:14)
  • Will not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16)_
  • Live and move and have your being (Acts 17:28)
  • Have been enriched in every way with all kinds of speech and knowledge (1 Cor 4:4-5
  • Are the righteousness of God (2 Cor 5:21)
  • Were chosen before the foundation of the world ( Ephesians 1:4)
  • Have redemption and forgiveness of sin (Ephesians 1:7)
  • Have obtained an inheritance (Ephesians 1:11)
  • Are being built with others into one house where God dwells (Ephesians 2:22)
  • Can approach the throne of God with boldness (Ephesians 3:12)
  • Are complete (Colossians 2:10)
  • Will never be put to shame (1 Peter 2:6)
  • Will have confidence and not be ashamed at His coming (1 John 2:28)
  • Have God's Spirit living within you. (1 John 4:13)
  • Can ask anything according to His will and He hears you (1 John 54:14)

Pretty incredible, isn't it? And this is only a list from the phrase "In Him". There are so many other descriptions of God's people.

The truth of the matter is, you are a child of the Living God who has access at any time to approach God with any issue or problem. You are already seated in heaven, already seated above all earthly problems and trials. You have God's Spirit living within you and the mind of Christ in your head. Nothing is impossible with you. You are a king and a priest and are called to a holy calling. All your needs are met and you have been given everything you need to complete God's will for your life.

I encourage you to print off this list and keep it close at hand to remind yourself just who you are in Jesus. I guarantee the enemy will come at you declaring the opposite to be true. He won't give up. Why? Because when you truly, I mean truly believe in who you ARE, your faith will grow by leaps and bounds and you will be a powerful warrior for the Lord and drive back the darkness wherever you go!
