    Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, 'Go and wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall come again to you, and you shall be clean.' But Naaman was angry, and went away and said, 'Behold, I thought, 'He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of Yahweh his God, and wa...

    Sanballat and Geshem sent to me, saying, 'Come! Let's meet together in the villages in the plain of Ono.' But they intended to harm me. I sent messengers to them, saying, 'I am doing a great work, so that I can't come down. Why should the work cease while I leave it and come down to you?' Nehemiah 6...

    Simon Peter said to them, "I'm going fishing." They told him, "We are also coming with you." They immediately went out, and entered into the boat. That night, they caught nothing. But when day had already come, Jesus stood on the beach, yet the disciples didn't know that it was Jesus. John 21:3'4 WE...

Website Migration:

Notice: We will be migrating to our new website over the next week, and hopefully things like email delivery will improve. During the transition, no emails will be sent. The latest devotional is always posted at the top of the devotional list. So bookmark it, create a shortcut, make it your homepage, or write the URL down on a napkin so you can find it later :)


Notice 4/9/24: The new RHM website is live and ready for testing! We are still working on adding content and functionality, but if you'd like to help kick it around and test it, we'd be happy to see you there :)! Here is the link to getting started. Thank you for your patience and prayers!

Opinion ...

  • Very often in my life I have absolutely and undeniably 'heard from God'. Not in a diluted, mutilated, twice-used, or pre-chewed manner, but as the genuine article. I would have readily guaranteed such a 'word' or exhortation ... with my Life.

    Believe me ... there is nothing braggadocio about such a statement. I am not the 'only one' who hears His Voice. In fact ... multiple MILLIONS around the World - on a Daily Basis - are the recipients of such a regenerative relationship with God.

    When the culture of Man establishes a 'God is Dead' socially-accepted intelligence, people become very critical concerning such a thing as the existence of God, let alone a personal relationship with Him. But ... Jesus clearly said: "My Sheep HEAR My Voice and they do not follow the Voice of a Stranger."

    I have known Catholics, Jews, and Protestants of every possible stripe and flavor, who absolutely Knew their Master's Voice. And even in the midst of a cacophony of diverse sound and noise ... they could discern God speaking inwardly to them.

    And If I were to put into print something that I knew God had spoken to me ... I would not dare claim it as my own. I would boldly sign His Name to certify it. And it would not matter to me ... how anyone responded. When I Hear ... I Obey ... there is no other response possible.

    But when I offer something as an Opinion ... it is Just That and very possibly no more than just that. 'Just That' means that it can be an exceptional thought or theory that very well may be the way something is .. or shall be.

    I have an 'Opinion' about the Times in which we live. But underlining that 'Opinion' are absolutes, inspired by Prophecy, which is Certain and Definite. These are Irreproachable and Irretractable. Here is my honest opinion.

    Today I enjoyed a conversation with a friend who has a balanced and rational understanding concerning the things that are happening both in our country and in our world. The many distractions in life have not blinded him concerning his sense or reason.

    He knows that our World is headed for 'real trouble' because of the evidence that is undeniably before us. Only a fool would disagree ... (I happen to agree.)

    Our conversation moved into End Time Thought. My opinion was asked. And I thought it might be worthwhile sharing with you. People on my list are from many different nations in our world. So ... here is my 'Opinion'.

    First of all, let me say that everything the Scripture 'genuinely teaches us' will come to pass precisely as it states. Timing is very relevant concerning Prophecy. 'Angels desire to look into such matters'.

    God created the Cosmos in 6 Days and Rested on the 7th Day.

    God also has appointed that His Son must reign and rule (with a Rod of Iron) on the Earth for 1,000 years. After which there will occur one Final Battle. (Not Armageddon)

    According to the Jewish Calendar which begins a record of History with either the Creation of Adam ... or two 24 hour periods prior, (with the creation of the Luminaries) and we now find ourselves in the Year 5777. (Since Creation)

    It is my 'Opinion' that God, Who is a God of Order - will allow for the completion of Six Millenniums. Prior to this Completion the Last Seven Years of these Six Millennium's, will involve the 'Ministry of the Two Witnesses' and then the 'Reign of the Beast'. It will culminate with the Return of Christ Jesus Who will defeat the Armies of the Beast and cast him into the Lake of Fire that burns with Brimstone.

    Satan is at this time 'bound' for a period of 1,000 years ... or ... the entire Seventh Millennium. At the end of this time, Satan will be released and he will go into the Four Corners of the Earth and gather 'Gog & Magog' who will wage War against the Camp of the Saints and the New Jerusalem. This battle may actually continue for 7 years ... for we are told by Ezekiel the Prophet that the weapons of the enemies warfare will be burned for 7 years.

    For this reason, even in our day, Satan MUST do everything he can to seek to destroy Jerusalem. For if Jerusalem no longer is in existence ... that Prophecy would be 'broken'. (It is also for this very Reason why Islam has been raised. For from its' inception it has sought to destroy the Jews possession of Jerusalem, and or Jerusalem itself.) But this is an IMPOSSIBILITY. The plan of God cannot by any Man - or Measure - or Beast - or Power ... be thwarted, overturned, overruled ... or changed.

    My Opinion is that we have a little over 200 years left before the Reign of Christ is established. During this time the World will Wax Worse and evil men and seducers will abound. The World will be filled with Tyrants. It will also become as it was in the Days of Lot, the nephew of Abraham. As Sodom was ... so will be the World. And as it was in the Days of Noah .. so it shall yet be again.

    Another such time must yet come ... and the 'Man of Sin' must yet appear BEFORE Christ Jesus returns. And now you know what is lacking. Satan's job is to make a straight path for the entrance of the Anti-Christ. He will do this by introducing the False Prophet who comes as though he were the Christ. Except he possesses horns which betray his nature.

    I am going to say something that may cause you to shake your head. It should strengthen you and sober all thought. The shape the World is in at present is NOTHING compared to what it will be in the next two Centuries.

    I will tell you one more thing and you can deny it if you like.

    The Day is coming soon when to openly confess Jesus will be a War Crime. In that Day ... no Man will claim he is a Catholic or a Protestant .. all Men who love God will claim only that they are Followers of Christ. All carnality will flee away out of fear. And in that Day .. shall the light of a 'Believer' shine as the Sun at Noon!

    Again .. the Prophecies are Sure and they will come to pass precisely as God has forewarned. The Timing is the only 'Unknown'. My consideration that God will complete Man's Dominance in the Physical Creation with the completion of the Sixth Millennium ... is My Opinion. If it is also the Lord's ... Only Time will Tell.
