When it feels like you cannot see or hear God – Ezekiel 12, Part 1

I love learning about humanity’s attempts to travel into space, and one of the common elements of space travel is…delays.  The astronauts go through all kinds of training, and then NASA sets the launch day.  They say goodbye to their family, get suited up, excitedly enter the spacecraft, and then NASA scrubs the launch.  TheContinue reading “When it feels like you cannot see or hear God – Ezekiel 12, Part 1”

When money is worthless – Ezekiel 7, Part 3

My wife, Michelle, and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary by going out for dinner. As a bonus, we had a gift card!  We made a reservation, arrived a few minutes early, and sat down in the lobby, waiting for the hostess to call us for our table.  I pulled out my phone to checkContinue reading “When money is worthless – Ezekiel 7, Part 3”

A prophetic play date? – Ezekiel 4 & 5, Part 1

Have you ever heard of a prophetic play date?  Imagine God telling you, “Go into your attic or your kids’ room, get out their Legos, build a mini-model of your town or city, and then build fighter jets from a foreign country dropping bombs all over it.  This will be a sign to the peopleContinue reading “A prophetic play date? – Ezekiel 4 & 5, Part 1”
