I am generally a skeptic when it comes to people’s dreams and visions. But the Lord is showing me tonight that there are genuinely real ones with real messages. This one has me weeping and repenting. If you do nothing else, PLEASE, watch this one to the end.
Often the question is asked, “How could a God of love permit such a place as hell to exist, let alone send people there?”
Asking a question like this reveals a lack of understanding of the love of God or the wickedness of sin. God’s love is a holy love, not a shallow sentiment. The Scriptures tell us that “God is light and in Him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5 NKJV). Sin is rebellion against God, and the Bible says we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory (see Romans 3:23). God does not send people to hell; people send themselves there by refusing to heed God’s call and believe in his son. These are people who have made a deliberate choice to not believe. —Greg Laurie

Interesting perspective on the half hour of silence in heaven as stated in Revelation 8.
(Link has been fixed.)
I came across the following editorial on The Christian Post and thought I would share it here.
I’ve been reading different blogs about the death of David Wilkerson and came across a comment by a blogger that I thought very relevant. The blogger said that he felt that David Wilkerson was probably the last giant of God on earth.
I have to say that I feel the same way. This man, David Wilkerson, who was rock solid in his faith, was a mighty man of God. He touched countless lives and through his servitude many were saved. He was an obedient and faithful servant, and I have no doubt his reward in heaven is great. There is no comparison between this man and other “renowned” pastors who seem more interested in the number of people they can put in their pews rather than preaching the pure, unadulterated gospel.
David Wilkerson was truly a giant of God, and I fear that the world has seen the last of his kind. I’m not saying that there aren’t any good ministers still around. But there are few like Rev. Wilkerson who never compromised the gospel for their own gain. He taught strictly from the Bible and with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. All one has to do is read his blogs and listen to his sermons to know that is the truth.
His death really hit hard for some reason. I don’t know how to explain it other than perhaps his departure is like the last vestige of almost everything good and holy being removed from this earth. And in these end times when evil is running so blatantly rampant, it’s a sorrowful blow to the remnant that remain. But perhaps it is Jesus’ way of forcing us to take our eyes off man, and focusing our attention on him. He’s the only one who will be able to get us through the days to come, and we must place our dependence on him and stand firm in our faith if we are going to persevere to the end.
