A Million Questions


The ground shook violently when the four angels landed. The sound reverberated throughout the entire distracted world. You heard it clear as day. Well, as clear as days used to be. It made you ask what was real and what was not. Question number one. There would be more to follow.

A man appeared on stage. He was well-lit, perfectly lit, and convincing. His words were eloquent. They moved the audience to nowhere, but they moved towards it with great purpose. Now they were all well-lit. A band played. People worshiped. Was it right? Another question.

The sun shone on the just and the unjust. It darted around the sky. First yellow, then red, a brilliant red. How long had the sun burned us like this? Another question.

Too much coffee raises the blood. It makes you hungry. Thirsty. It makes you strong, for a moment, then weak. How long have I been a glutton?

Those books sat on your shelf, and one was hidden away, both gone now by the order of the Lord. He told you to toss them, though you had not expected it. But they were good, weren’t they? No. How much disobedience do I have?

These questions. One more, then another. All will be answered. Each on its own and then all of them together. Psst. There is only one answer.

The times changed while you watched. People, my fellow wardens of the Earth, are reaching out to phantoms. What do they see? Why do they create such destruction? That’s two questions. What is going on here? A third.

That’s how many angels fell to the Earth, a third of them. Are they what is vexing mankind?

So many questions.

Do you know the answer, my friends?

“…for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

We need a Savior. See? One answer.

A prayer for Kim Jong-Un




God is real. The Gospel is true.

In the early 1900's, just over one hundred years ago, Pyongyang, North Korea was called the Jerusalem of the East. Kim Jong-Un's great-grandparents were devout Christians. When communism swept that country the leaders hid that fact and painted them as good communists.

So a prayer for Kim Jong-Un:

The Lord bless you and keep you.

The Lord open your eyes and water your gardens.

The Lord rescue and help you.

The Lord change the ground beneath your feet.

The Lord take your heart in His hands and give you peace.

I am just an ordinary person, but I believe you can change the whole world with a prayer.

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. 

Romans 1:16

Simcha stood at his easel painting the new world. It came on the tailwind of the old world. Blowing like a breeze, it was a fire, the old tore down, but the new rebuilt. Slowly, then all at once, the new replaced the old. It carried out rotted wood. It shoveled out this, that, all of it. It restored one brick at a time, a blade of grass and then another, a song, a verse, all of it poured out of the new and watered the Earth.

The old man wondered if he too would be replaced. He was nearly 800 or a thousand. He couldn’t remember and didn’t feel like adding it up. All his days, though, were a drop in the bucket of this great triumphant world of man. He was a mere human but could see the truth as plain as day. The new world was emerging as the old was vanquished. He hadn’t thought it could change so quickly, but it did.

The birds sang a new song, loudly and boldly. The sky was bluer. The grass was greener. It had not been like this before even during the time of Eden. Somehow, the redemption of God made it better than it was even at the beginning of His perfect creation. He had restored it completely.


Look at the nations and watch—

and be utterly amazed.

For I am going to do something in your days

that you would not believe,

even if you were told.


Habakkuk 1:5

John 4:22


You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, 
for salvation is from the Jews.

Lest you be wise in your own sight, I do not want you to be unaware of this mystery, brothers: a partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written,

“The Deliverer will come from Zion,
    he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”;

“and this will be my covenant with them
    when I take away their sins.”

Romans 11:25-27

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;

 and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you.  

Genesis 12:3



He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation, and not only for that nation but also for the scattered children of God, to bring them together and make them one.

John 11:51-52
