The Generation of Dry Bones

Recently at a worship service the Lord began speaking to me about the calling He has for this generation. While there are many problems and issues to be faced, that doesn't mean God doesn't want and isn't planning to use those who are so often referred to as lazy and unmotivated. Just the opposite. Over and over again in scripture He does some of His greatest work through the least likely sources.

I share this word as a calling out to those who need to be stirred up. I share it as encouragement to those who feel like they're unworthy. I share it as the cry of my heart and, I believe, the cry of God's heart as well.

Closer to the void, eternity approaches. Time itself runs low, like a video tape coming to an end.
 
The urgency increases. The work to be done is still great. The generations that remain are few. But so much is left to do.
 
Multitudes stand in the valley of decision. Daily many step into the vastness of eternity--hopeless and lost. To what end? It is because My Bride is not prepared. She has not readied herself for the coming of her Beloved. Even so, the Bridegroom moves, ready to take possession of that which He has long awaited, and long desired.
 
Generation of dry bones, rise again and live! I call you forth. I sent you as fresh and alive into the world with My light within you. Somehow you have squandered the oil of My anointing seeking after comfort and pleasure...calling it faith. Yet it is not faith in Me or faith that comes from Me. My faith is in the great day when I will be able to behold my Bride, full and complete and ready to receive Me. You have become lifeless and dead, just as the dead bones Ezekiel saw. Yet I call you back to life, for there is work to be done. The end has not yet arrived, and there are those who have not stepped into eternity who I desire. Yes, a great many.
 
So I call forth this generation to be the Great Generation. The Game-changing Generation. The Generation to Fulfill the purposes others have fallen short of fulfilling. Arise, you who are My chosen. Arise you who are my Beloved. Arise you who are My appointed. For now is the time of your fulfilling destiny.

You have wondered at your purpose. You have said 'Maybe the Lord wants this of me' or 'Maybe I will do this to serve Him.'
Now is the appointed time to arise in new faith. Focused faith. Determined faith. For as the time grows ever shorter the resistance increases all the more.
 
But do not lose hope. hold fast to the confession of your faith and arise in My power and for the glory of My name. Arise, that which has been dead and dormant and be alive and filled with the freshness of the latter rain of My Spirit.
 
Arise and go forth. Stand at the edge of the void and declare with boldness the way of Truth. For there is only one way.
 
And receive with me the fulfillment of the Promise of the Father, who has appointed you to the Kingdom for such a time as this.

5 Fights Couples Have When Buying a House

When my wife and I bought our home in the Northern Kentucky area, it was quite an experience. We had a great Realtor® with whom I am now privileged to work. I can only imagine the things he must have thought about us, showing up to look at houses with our two young boys, talking about if a room was big enough...what was that smell...why would they put the switch over here...

Ah, those were the days!

Thankfully, we didn't actually fight (that I remember) about anything considering a house. We both had a concept together of what we wanted, and a price range. And outside of those things, I didn't care as long as she was happy. No really, I didn't! As long as I could have air conditioning and hot water, I was good!

However, that is not the experience everyone has.

Today, I am actually going to share a link that will take you to Realtor.com. The article was written earlier this year by Stephanie Barth, a writer, and contributor to several publications. She took this concept of…

When The Neighbors Don't Care

A home that isn't being maintained like others in the neighborhood can negatively affect your visual sense of appeal and in some extreme cases, even affect property values. It might be an overgrown yard, a fence in need of repair, excessive noise, unruly pets, paint peeling on the home or even a car or boat parked in front of the home that hasn't moved in weeks.

Most people want to be good neighbors and may be willing to correct an issue once it is brought to their attention. A practical, but possibly confrontational, solution is to contact the responsible person and describe your perception of the issue. However, they may not always agree with the same urgency and it might be necessary to seek other remedies.


An owner-occupant may be more sympathetic to the neighbors and willing to correct the issue. If you think the home might be a rental property, check with the county tax records to identify the owner. They may be unaware of the situation and welcome the…

Actually, thats not in the Bible

I don't often have much use for CNN as a news source, but this story by John Blake is so dead on in its point on Bible illiteracy, that I can't not share it! Its a bit long, but worth every moment it takes to read and consider! DK
By John Blake, CNN

(CNN) – NFL legend Mike Ditka was giving a news conference one day after being fired as the coach of the Chicago Bears when he decided to quote the Bible.
“Scripture tells you that all things shall pass,” a choked-up Ditka said after leading his team to only five wins during the previous season.  “This, too, shall pass.”
Ditka fumbled his biblical citation, though. The phrase “This, too, shall pass” doesn’t appear in the Bible. Ditka was quoting a phantom scripture that sounds like it belongs in the Bible, but look closer and it’s not there.

Ditka’s biblical blunder is as common as preachers delivering long-winded public prayers. The Bible may be the most revered book in America, but it’s also one of the most misquoted. Politicians…
