Who Is Responsible? Ezekiel 3:20 – NIV “Again, when a righteous person turns from their righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling-block before them, they will die. Since you did not warn them, they will die for their sin. The righteous things that person did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.” “Who Is Responsible” by Wynn Cameron Thompson Seems like the more I hear many people talk the more I hear excuses.  I…

What IS real repentance? 2 Kings 22-23:25 22:11 “When the king heard what was written in the book, God’s Revelation, he ripped his robes in dismay.” (Message)  “The impressions which the reading of the law made upon Josiah were that he rent his clothes, as one ashamed of the sin of his people and afraid of the wrath of God; he had long thought his kingdom was in a bad state, by reason of the idolatries and impieties that had…

Sin, Grace and Sincerity by Jason Caywood Recently I heard a story of a family friend who was a believer and is now in the Lord’s Presence due to the passing of death. At one point in his life he realized that he needed the Lord Jesus to save him. He told a friend, “My heart is black and full of sin.” He knew that he needed the grace the Gospel proclaims and did embrace the Lord Jesus and he…

RW Blog February 2019 a reminder “Fix Your Focus on the Cloud”

“Fix your focus on the Cloud” Numbers 9:18-23 – NKJ 23 “At the command of the LORD they remained encamped, and at the command of the LORD they journeyed; they kept the charge of the LORD, at the command of the LORD by the hand of Moses.” One of the hardest times in our walk with Christ is when we find ourselves in the wilderness. Many of us have heard of these experiences before actually experiencing them. Some of us…

SNOOZING AWAY OPPORTUNITIES… BLOG by Judi Thompson Wow….I can’t believe it’s already December. Another year has quickly passed. In the stores it seemed as if Thanksgiving was ignored and Christmas took over. There were a few sales on pumpkins and turkeys and of course limited areas on the store isles to display all the things one “must have” to be able to celebrate Thanksgiving. But almost simultaneously the multiple rows of Christmas decorations sadly overshadowed Thanksgiving. Such a reflection on…

It wasn’t until I was introduced to Restoring Wholeness ministries back in 2010 that I came to understand much of my life I had been living in fear, fear of rejection, fear of failure, and fear of abandonment just to name a few. My only coping mechanisms for dealing with these cruel feelings were ones I was deeply ashamed of, keeping in great secret. Growing up in a home with pretty much no reverence for God and all reverence for…

WHY DO WE LACK STRENGTH FROM TIME TO TIME? “Then he said to them, “Go your way. Eat the fat and drink sweet wine and send portions to anyone who has nothing ready, for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be grieved, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10 I’ve been thinking – “why do so many Christians lack strength in their daily walk with the Lord?” We know God is our strength…

Message from the heart by Judi A. Thompson I recently walked through a courtyard that was beautiful and pristine. I didn’t linger but had taken notice how everything seems so clean and in order.  Later in the day I went back through the same area after the winds picked up. I was taken back with the condition and visual impact the wind left on the courtyard. Leaves had been released from the trees and swirled into random piles all over the…

I’d like to share a thought I believe the Lord gave me regarding entitlement and the ongoing struggle that so many Christians have when they lose sight of the awesome privilege of God’s grace. I can best illustrate this concept with a story. An adult son visits his parents at their home for a two-week stay. He is very close to them, but has been living in another country for some time. During his visit, he falls into his old habits of…

RWM Blog April 2017 – “Fake News”

Fake news – by Judith A. Thompson (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) Fake news websites (also referred to as hoax news[1][2]) deliberately publish hoaxes, propaganda, and disinformation purporting to be real news—often using social media to drive web traffic and amplify their effect.[3][4][5] Unlike news satire, fake news websites seek to mislead rather than entertain readers, often for financial or political gain.[6][4] Such sites have promoted political falsehoods in Germany,[7][8] Indonesia and the Philippines,[9] Sweden,[10][11] Myanmar,[12] and the United States.[13][14][15] Many sites originate, or are promoted, from Russia,[3][13][16] Macedonia,[17][18] Romania,[19] and the United States.[20][21] Yesterday I noticed a post on Facebook from…
