Thank you Lord Jesus

Thank you for everything, every day!

  • Thank you for what you did on the cross for all humanity.
  • Thank you for Eternal Life, that you gave as a gift to all who believe in you and what you have done for them.
  • Thank you for truth, and keeping it simple.

       (...not 'complicated', like 90% of Christianity makes it out to be)

  • Thank you for your providence, that extends to everyone, and not just to those who love and believe in you.
  • Thank you for putting up with all my bullcrap, and for being patient with all of us.
  • Thank you for watching over and protecting me, even when I strayed and ran far away from you and made some 'really extremely very bad stupid' decisions in the course of my life.  I should be dead right now, but for some reason, ...I'm still alive.
  • Thank you for IMVU, and all my friends and family in there.
  • Thank you for this radio station, another day, and another opportunity to rest in who you are, and to live....





....this has nothing to with being "religious".   When I was young, I had a very bad experience (2 years) in a very strict militant 'so-called' "church and christian school", and it screwed me up in the head for most of my life.  Sadly, the simple truth of our Creator, Jesus, and the "good news" has been subtly and severely "distorted" to point that I'd say most people think Christianity is a big joke, a cult, a culture-shock, and a threat to freedom-of-choice and modern society.  You don't want to know the abuse I've been through and experienced.

Why do I feel like this?    Because the majority of those who claim to be Christian, ...don't really believe in His name or solely trust on what HE did on the cross.  They have been brainwashed into believing that eternal life and peace or reconcillience with their Maker can only come from themselves or their "own" efforts ('Jesus + this', ...'Jesus + that').  No thanks to false teachers, the Good News has been turned into "bad news", with no hope, doubt, and uncertainty, causing people to become self-righteous, or live in perpetual fear, stress and anxiety, or ...walk away entirely, or "escape" using various means, or (worse) ...choosing to end their own lives.  I'm not exaggerating here, and I've endured first-hand experience and am a witness-to and a victim of all this.


The terms 'Grace' and 'Faith' have been re-defined by the world to mean what "they" want it to mean, where Eternal Life is no longer a "Gift" by Grace through faith (believing), but by faith in-and-of it's own self ...'faith in Jesus PLUS your performance' with the true meaning and concept of God's "grace" basically thrown into the toilet by most churches and ministries.

The whole world teaches morality and a "law", ...whether Christian, Muslim, Pagan, Luciferian, by Nation and Culture.  That's not the issue.  Should each of us do what is right out of selfless love, and to protect and preserve?  Of course we should.  We also know that every decision we make and choose has 'consequences', not for only ourselves, but others.  We also know (in a bigger-picture sense), the same rain falls on the both the just and the unjust, both good and bad stuff.  Some of it is really bad.  Some things there are seemingly no answers for.  Bottom line, the law is in effect right now in this world.  We sow what we reap, whether back on our own selves or by affecting others around us.  No one can dispute that.


What I do see, however, is the subtle way the world has either changed the "character" and person of God into a mean, stern, indifferent, uncaring, controlling power-monger genocidal megalomaniac that everyone either hates, is afraid of or runs away from, or they've convinced  people that He really doesn't exist.

...but Jesus said "I and my Father are One", "if you have seen Me, you have seen the Father".  We see the character and person of God by looking at Jesus Himself, who when asked and questioned whether He was the messiah the Son of God by His accusers, He replied, .........."I AM" (the name of God) ...and He was put to death for it.

The END GAME of the enemy is to get people to either hate, reject, deny, run-away or flee from God their Creator.  It not about morality, how good you think you supposedly are or think you have to be.  It's "always" been about your relationship and connection with Him, whether you accept or reject Him and ...what He has done for you to reconcile you to Himself.


..but the best news of the good news is that:


...and was seen by over 500 witnesses, before He ascended back to Heaven, ...and scripture also declares He's coming back.


Everyone has a "belief" in something (a god, a philosophy, scientism, an ideology, etc.), along with it's corresponding doctrine or way-of-thought, and ultimately affects your decisions, what you think, and what you do in life.  Everyone has the "freedom" to choose what they want to believe.  From my standpoint, it's your God-given right, and He gives everyone that freedom and choice, He never wanted a bunch of "robots".  Freedom is a gift too, you know.

However, for myself, I choose to believe the simplicity of what is called the "Good News", the evidence of my own eyes, senses, simplicity, research, the consistency & consilience of the scriptural & historical record,  and what my heart tells me.  Could it be that, maybe ...the true 'intelligent designer' of all things has already revealed Himself and who He really is?
