God Came

On Habakkuk chapter 3, with consideration of Habakkuk 2:4:

"Has the prophet departed from the realm of prayer by turning to this description of the coming of God in all his glory? No, for the reality of God's coming in past and future provides the basis for faith that assures life as he prays and waits. Rather than leaving his petition barely uttered, the prophet provides a framework of faith which will sustain him as well as all those supplicants that would join him through the ages. The Lord has come, and the Lord is coming. Therefore all who wait patiently for him shall live." -page 220 of The Books of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah by O. Palmer Robertson. Grand Rapids, MI: William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company, 1990.

The Lord has come. (Habakkuk 3:3)
And the Lord is coming. (Revelation 3:11, 22:7, 22:12, 22:20)

Field Day 2011 - WA4MM

ARRL Field Day was this past weekend and I had a lovely time. I operated with my friends from the NoVA QRP club in Virginia using the club call WA4MM. My neighbor kindly gave me a ride to and from the event. On the drive over, I munched on a sausage & egg muffin and then armed myself with sunscreen. Before I knew it, we had arrived! Collapse )

Living under the King

"So I want to say to you this morning, that if you're not a Christian and you dismiss Christianity as nothing more than pious fire-insurance or bland moralism, then, friend, you've not understood Christianity. For being a Christian is all about living a life right now whose purpose, whose direction, whose meaning is rooted in being in a relationship, living under the authority of the crucified and living Lord Jesus Christ." -Aug 2004 sermon on Colossians 3:1-17
