"Pastor Burris, I have never thought of the cross in the way you describe.  I simply have viewed it (possibly mistakenly but I think not) as the effect my sins had on JESUS.  I can't speak for any others' sins, only mine and the cross signifies my shame.  I can only fall on my knees and beg HIS forgiveness for the weakling that I am.  I strive every day to be as JESUS would have me be, but I know at times I stumble and fall, but because of HIS Grace I am saved.  My thoughts have always been on what kind of person I need to be and that answer I believe is for me anyway as close to the type of person JESUS was and is, in my mind.  I'm sorry if I simplify things in such a way, but that's the way I have always thought, until today when I read your study and Brother Derek's blog about the torture JESUS endured while on that Cross.  I must now think on just exactly what it took to provide me with HIS GRACE.  It most certainly in my case is an eye opener.  Thank you for that.  I need those of…"

He was pierced for our transgressionsAnd bruised for our iniquitiesAnd to bring us peace He was punishedAnd by His stripes we are healedHe was led like a lamb to the slaughterAlthough He was innocent of crimeAnd cut off from the land of the livingHe paid for the guilt that was mineWe like sheep have gone astrayTurned each one to his own wayAnd the Lord has laid on HimThe iniquity of us allLike a lamb, like a lambTo the slaughter He cameAnd the Lord laid on HimThe iniquity of us all"

Minister Burris’ recent Bible Study ‘The Shadow of the Cross’ started me thinking about Jesus’ sacrifice, not only of His death, but about the suffering that Jesus endured for our sake.  Jesus Himself said that there was no greater sacrifice than one human giving his life for his friend, but how much greater a sacrifice was giving your life and suffering for people, that as a fully human man, he never knew or who would stand against Him?
The mental torture that came to Jesus when He and His disciples were in the Garden of Gethsemane, just before His arrest, was evident from the prayers He prayed to His Father.  “Let this cup be taken from Me, Father,” He prayed, in modern language, “Do I have to go through with this Dad?”. You can almost hear the desperation in His words, but after at least two appeals to His Father He finally said, “Let your will be done,” and accepted the fate that He already knew. Luke writes in his Gospel “And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly; and his sw…

   This is a subject that some preachers will not talk about. A lot of people do not want to hear a message about the Cross. This is what I have noticed, and I asked the Lord to help me understand this. And this is what He showed me.   What does the Cross mean to the world? Answer #1---The world is offended by the Cross. "But we preach Christ crucified:a stumbling block to the Jews and foolishness to Gentiles" (1 Corinthians 1:23). The Jews 'stumbled' at the Cross because most of them were looking for a political leader who would deliver them from the heel of the Roman Empire. Jesus dealt with this misunderstanding many times in His ministry. Which is why He repeatedly told people not to spread the news of miracles. He didn't want to start a political movement that would overthrow Rome. He intended to start a spiritual revolution that would overthrow Satan's power. At one point a group of people came to Him and attempted to make Him King by acclamation. He sent them away because He ha…

Can I just recommend, to all our members, Pastor Burris' Bible Study of 'In the Shadow of the Cross' that they make a concerted effort to read this amazing, God given message, it is truly worth the few minutes taken to read it, and to even read it again and again.

"Just some thoughts from me Michael, things that struck me as I read this study.  (1) Crowning Jesus King of the Jews would not be s much a distraction as futile, Jesus was fully human but also fully God, why crown Him as King of just a part of which He was already King?
A medical physician, Dr. C Trueman Davis tells us this about the effect of crucifixion on Jesus:

"As Jesus slowly sagged down with more weight on the nails in the wrists, excruciating, fiery pain shot along the fingers and up the arms to explode in the brain. The nails in the wrists were putting pressure on the median nerve, large nerve trunks which traverse the mid-wrist and hand. As He pushed himself upward to avoid this stretching torment, He placed His full weight on the nail through His feet. Again there was searing agony as the nail tore through the nerves between the metatarsal bones of this feet.
At this point, another phenomenon occurred. As the arms fatigued, great waves of cramps swept over the muscles, kno…"

"WOW! This is about the deepest study of the Cross and our relationship to it I've ever read. I learned a lot here, Pastor Burris I expect anyone taking the time to read this. And how much time should we give our Lord today? He's got me 24/7 so of course I had the time, and I believe all who do, and read this will be Blessed. Thanks, Pastor!"

This was the headline that greeted me this morning, I had already seen the TV News broadcast last night, so I had time to think about how this amazing discovery affects our belief.  However, first we have to answer the question; what are Gravitational Waves?
It has been generally accepted for a long time that space is not empty, when I say there is a vacuum out there that does not mean that it is empty.  There is a ‘fabric’ to space; we know this because of observations of astronomy and the application of known physics.  This universe and this galaxy is dynamic, it is always changing and in motion, and because of that stars move around on their various orbits, so very often one star passes another (from our point of view).  When a star, whose precise position is known, passes behind a very large star, the light from that star is bent, so it looks at if its position has changed slightly.  A well proven physical law states that light (photons) always travel in exactly straight lines thr…

Spiritual discernment is so vital for the us into today world. Remember when a damsel followed the Apostle Paul around declaring "these men are the servants of the Most High God that show us the way of salvation?" What she was saying was true, but something did not seem right to Paul. After a few days of listening to her, Paul was grieved in his spirit and commanded a spirit to come out of her. This demon spirit was following the apostolic team, but spiritual discernment stopped the demonic plan. The glory was to men and not to God' so it was false praise by a false spirit. That why God don't want us going to palm readers going by our horoscopes to see our future.
Scripture says, "Believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God because many false prophets are gone out into the world" (1 John 4:1). We could say it another way, there are many demonic teaching spirits you will need discernment to identify what is God Spirit and what demonic spirits.
  • Christine Stefanko Love what you posted!! Discernment is so very important. We must beware of the wolf in sheep's clothing. Those who come in the name of God, only to try and twist and manipulate scripture to their benefit.

    God will smite them. I pray I always have my armor on and the the word of the Lord prevails!

  • Pastor Rolf Anderson We must all be careful with discerning evil spirits from God's. There's a battle going on.We know the outcome, and can know the general outline of the battle. We just can't know the specifics and the timeline (Come quickly, Lord Jesus!).

With a very heavy heart I have to ask for prayer for myself and family. My mother just passed on. She seemed to have passed while sleeping in her main chair. Her health had declined in the last few years. She was a very blessed and Godly lady. No man is poor that has had a Godly mother.
  • Zomok, steve An Obituary for my mother Judy Zomok--
    With sad hearts we found that our dear mother Judy passed on to be with the Lord (Feb. 10). She, although seemingly younger than her age, has had failing health in the last few year, but she has lived a full life.
    Judy Lavonne Zomok was born in Pierre S. Dakota, on April 24th, 1941, to her parents George Marvin Knudtson & Ruby Bessie Burger. She, with three older brothers, and her parents, relocated to the Seattle area in 1942. This was the area that the rest of her siblings were born.
    Her mother Ruby, in the very early 1950s, purchased some property near Gold Bar, Washington, and this is where my parents first met several years later. My dear mother married Steve Zomok, Jr., in Everett Washington, on November 16, 1957. The young couple quickly grew into a family of two boys: Steve (me), and Shawn, and later a daughter: Judy, and lastly another son: John. My parents, Judy and Steve Z., stayed together 34 years, until my father passed away in Augu…
