I am so thankful for Parents that loved the Lord and showed it by attending the Church every time the Church doors were open. They wanted the best for their children as they taught us the Biblical Principles that we could achieve our potential. They knew Deuteronomy 6:7  You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. They trained us up as Proverbs 22:6 states Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it. Ellis, Lowell, Anna Lee and I many times had to be reminded to obey our Parents or we got the rod of correction that bought us back to reality we could not disobey but needed to know how to love to please and bless our parents and those in authority over us. 
Our Parents knew how to provide for us as 2 Corinthians 12:14 says, Behold the third time I am ready to come to you, and I will not be burdensome to you, for I seek not yours, but you; for the Children ought to not lay up for the Parents, but the Parents for the Children. Our Dad during the second world war when to work in the Ship Yards in Bremerton, WA. and Portland Oregon with his brother Archie.  He always bought us all a gift and it was a delightful time. 
We know what it was like to have rationing and got our own name on the amount we could have. So we learned to restrain ourselves and not steal. We learn now to share and be polite to one another at all time regardless of the circumstances.
Our Parents knew how to nurture us as Ephesians 6:4 tells us And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. We know what it was to be persuaded to do what was right by a rod of correction not an Iron rod or a 2x4 but small switch or belt, even by hand on the bottom, never leaving a mark but a love of being disciplined by loving parents. Today we are not seeing discipline in the homes, Schools or business.Then we had Parents that were in Control of our behavior and attitudes as 2 Timothy 3:1-7 This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a [a]bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behavior, hospitable, able to teach; not [b]given to wine, not violent, [c]not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not [d]covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how will he take care of the church of God?); not a [e]novice, lest being puffed up with pride he fall into the same condemnation as the devil. Moreover he must have a good testimony among those who are outside, lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
Our Parents were not Bishops or preachers, but in control of their home and we enjoyed what we had and where able to do. We were not rich, but had everything we needed to enjoy life for we knew the Lord personally at a very young age, learning to be content in whatsoever we had.
Our home was a home full of love that not only we felt, but all who came into our Home felt as well. Relatives stopped in many times and enjoyed mom’s cooking and Hospitality. Mom was a Mother that loved the Lord and had an, open clothes closet and coming home from School many times she would be in the Closet praying. We have prayers before meals and before bed time and grew up around prayer.

Retirement; Now What!

I am so thankful for what has happened in my life as I have never had to ask for a job, it was offered to me and I did the best I could to please those I worked for and with. This is the first time in my life I have not had to report to work at White Swan Lumber which I did for 10 years. 
Then farming required I worked at sowing and reaping every day for 13 years. Then helping start in 1980 a Christian School in Harrah was a blessing working with other Christians on our Board. 
Then being a minister in Onalaska for 3 years working as a Security officer at Green Hill in Centralia, WA for 2 years dealing with the most server teenagers in Washington State. Then going to California in LA working for Hollygrove Orphanage for 10 years licensed for 6 teenage boys who many did not know their father, and they saw the state take them away from their mothers.  This was very difficult on my wife Ginny the first couple Months they did not even like her cooking. They soon wanted to shop with her for Groceries. This required work 24-7, for we lived with the boys. 
Then working for the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department as a Chaplain for 3 years in the largest Jails and Prisons in LA Country required work. Then coming back to Yakima with my wife taking care of my Mother-in-Law and working as a Chaplain for the Yakima Sheriffs for 10 years starting out with Mandatory Classes at the Restitution Center in Union Gap for 2 years.  Then they made me stop and just be available to be present to have volunteer Classes. Then also Speaking at the God Pod in Yakima every Thursday from 1 to 2 PM. Then we accepted the Pastorate at Harrah Assembly of God in 2019 and were there for 13 years and now retired, living in Yakima. I find work is still needed for me as an Ambassador in the Kingdom of God. 
Now I am using the internet, for it is a tool that gives one the opportunity to give good news Jesus saves. I have a web site on www.2forgive.orgthat has over 6 thousand hits a week for I record my messages and my thoughts which I get from studying the Biblical Principles for the game of life every Friday. So, my day is reading the Bible, devotionals, prayer and reading articles on the news and Charisma Magazine and other books that build up my image. I find that if you remember who you are and that is a sheep, or a Child of the Lords, He knows what you need to stay out of the addiction of lusting for evils pleasures in a den of thieves and liars in this word of sinners.
I know God has given us a body with five senses of eyes, ears, mouth,nose and feeling and they need to be trained and taught to do what is right, so our bodies 5 senses are controlled by our brain.  Then we have a soul with five senses of Consequence which lets us know when we are wrong and need to confess and say I’m sorry, when we are Ridden with guilt and feeling bad. Our Conscience is what is needed to have peace and good will. Then we have an imagination that is running wild to day and innocent people are getting hurt. Look at the Movie Industry spending lots of money on spectacular scenes and upon getting you to lust for Sexuality. Then the Churches are gearing up for spectacular lighting and sounds in music that is entertaining and it needs to be loud.

Pentecost Provides Our Freedom

Pentecost Provides Our Freedom

The Cross, with the shed blood, procured our freedom; whereas, Pentecost activated our freedom after the resurrection and ascension of Christ. The Spirit of our ascended High Priest was made available to humanity to free us from slavery to our impulses. We can now be carriers of His rest. The Holy Spirit contains all of the essentials for overcoming the law of sin.[1] It enables us to be a habitation for God's agape love which is the fruit of the Spirit, with its elements of peace and strength to deal with our sin nature. This love can't be in us if we are attached to the things of the world by lust.[2]

Without the resurrection and ascension, there would be no Spirit of Jesus Christ to inhabit us and to be the conduit for God's love to flow into us. A dead Christ wouldn't do us any good. Christ became a life-giving Spirit.[3] He revives us in this life as well as in the next. We are told that "Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life".[4] This starts while we are still alive on this earth.

What does this newness of life look like for us? Because of the law of sin, we are all born with a weakened willpower. This is what makes us prone to doing the things that we don't want to do, and to not do the things that we should. [5] The old life is a life of slavery to the law of sin within us which saps our strength and ensures that we don't have the strength or willpower to overcome our proneness to excesses. The fruit of the Spirit lifts us to a place of peace and strength to overcome the law of sin. Without the Holy Spirit, this is not possible. It is important for us to understand that our own willpower, without the Spirit, is not sufficient; therefore, we yield to the Spirit in order for its fruit to be activated in our lives.

Unconditional trust in God is what moves us from self-reliance to reliance on God. When we realize that our own strength is insufficient, we need to stop trying to use it for overcoming excesses, and humble ourselves before God because this is how we receive the graces of God. We are required to cast all of our care on Him;[6] then we are able to make choices from a position of strength. God does not reject a humble and contrite heart.[7] The principle is simple: A humble and contrite heart is required; and then we can proceed with our other religious activities.

The man Christ Jesus, our High Priest intercessor and mediator, is meek and humble towards His Father.[8] Because of this humility, Jesus can tell us to come unto Him and He will give us the rest that He has from His own humility. He shares His rest with us when we have His Spirit within us. This is the same rest that is called the peace that passes all understanding.[9] It is also the fruit of the Spirit peace.[10]
