Today is a historic day in my mind. End Starvation Foundation has its first donor pledge $30 per month to fund the operation of the foundation. I am grateful to God and to the donor, whose name I withhold for reasons of privacy, but I can say that he is a Christian man from Texas.. This is very encouraging. With $1.5 billion per day, starvation can be eradicated, potable water provided, and orphans and widows cared for around the world. $30 a month from 1.5 billion donors will end starvation. The silver bullet, the cure, is to care.
There is no way to know why we sometimes have to wait a long time for certain things or answers….but remember that eternity is a long time, and what to us seems a long time is, to God, a moment. He is in control and He knows why He does what He does when He does it. It is our job to do as He says. We already know the final outcome.
The latest poem:
Mighty as broken eggshells
Strewn along the road
Something tells me that most of us
Bear less than half the load
Of their responsibility
Within the church of God
As capable ambassadors
Of the only One who’s good.
I’m starting now to understand
That this is partly due to
That few of those who teach of Him
Are teaching what is true
To those who need to know about
How they must be saved
And so they walk in ignorance and
Unwisely have behaved.
Open up your Bible and
Compare it to the word
Of the preacher on the pulpit
Who too often seems absurd
Then read God’s word in prayerfulness
And often you will find
That the pedants who now speak of Him
Are functionally blind
As though their fleshly eyes could see
While they’ve lost their Christly mind.
Don’t follow shallow teachers
Who pretend to speak for Christ
Whose teachings don’t compare to his
Whose message is not spiced
With the message of the gospel
That divides us like a knife
Sending goats away who won’t obey
The words that offer life.
Don’t waste your time with preachers
Who won’t preach what God requires
For only will he find the truth
Who after truth inquires.
What is truth, someone might ask
And I will answer in a trice:
Those words lack truth that don’t agree
With the doctrine of Jesus Christ.
The anthology is now available online, on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Google, and will soon be available on this site’s webstore. Poems & Songs for Christ.
I am working on the second anthology now, which may be done within the year. And I have typed up my three short stories, titled Trio of Short Stories for Christ.
Kyle Ingalsbe is setting up the site to take your payments and donations. Hope to be up and running soon.
So far, no positive responses from billionaires. Maybe soon.
Here is the latest poem:
Seek First the Kingdom
There is nothing, nothing at all,
Nothing at all that Christ cannot do.
He is through whom God created life,
So, why can’t He give life to you?
Everything the Father has given
To the Son to reign as our king,
And raised Him up as proof of his power
To give us life and everything.
From the East and from the West
They will come to sit at his table,
All whom the Lord of life resurrects,
He to fulfill his promise is able.
There is nothing, nothing at all,
Nothing at all his people will lack.
Rejoice now and trust in his promise:
Jesus Christ is soon coming back.
So remember, do not forget,
He’s returning on Judgment Day
To reward those who do his will,
But to destroy those who don’t obey.
Serve the king and you will lack nothing –
He has great riches waiting for you,
Real life in union with the great Spirit
Of the One who’s returning for you.
