Harmony isn’t just a “Dating site”


What is harmony?  Peace, unity, order, a pleasing combination of elements in a whole.
An agreement made or balance of a suitable arrangement.
It is a working together in friendship or cooperation. linus

What is disharmony besides the opposite of harmony? It is the state of being deranged or lacking in orderliness. It is also conflict, strife, warfare,disunity or dissension.

If Heaven has only harmony, then could it be much of man’s difficulties come from disharmony?

We have constant disconnects, confusion, and cry over lack as if there is no abundance when God makes it clear he has plenty of everything to go around. (Philippians 4:19) He created the earth with more provisions than man would ever need for every person who will ever inhabit it until the end of the age.  That being said, man in his selfish habits and greed once again manage to “muck it all up.”

You may argue the point there is an evil enemy who lurks around like a roaring lion wishing to devour any and all of us. (1 Peter 5:8) However, if we humans would have figured out from the start and by that I mean Adam and Eve we could have extinguished, eradicated, slaughtered and completely wiped him out; yeah. It would have worked. But we didn’t.  So to make it easier on ourselves we will just blame Adam and Eve especially since they are no longer around to defend themselves.  

God keeps his promises which give us no way out of this mess except through him.  As common sensed as that sounds, many have no clue to pursue him. 

Why does he tell us to seek him?

Could it be if we did we would find an inner understanding and knowledge from God to explain in simple terms how to deal with life’s troubles and problems?  (Matthew 11: 28-30)

If we will allow God to reveal his processes by going to him first, he will walk us through every moment in perfect harmony.

Isn’t that “Heaven on Earth?”

Resurrection Day: A Coming Together


For the one who seeks, searches and yearns to get to know the Savior, there is one moment in time unlike any other.

This flash of revelation makes sense of everything.

The why, what, who, when and where of life is answered in an instant.

It is a “coming together” of the spirit, soul and mind centered on Jesus.

Questioning how a person can be the solution to every problem that has ever existed seems impossible, but it is what it is.

In the blink of an eye God will reveal truth; pure, unadulterated truth in the form of his son. Genuine life given to all mankind out of the simple love of God for his children.

Beginning this journey can come in the humor of God’s character even for the seriousness it represents.

God is God and he can do what he wants, when he wants. He has a wild imagination when it comes to saving souls; even to the inspired use of props unlikely fitting for his purpose. But it works.

Whatever he uses, be it a friend, book or movie the end result confirms the death and Resurrection. Somehow it leads to that hill of death.

As the horror sets in of the Cross of Christ, that moment in time places the searching soul at his bloody, pierced feet and nailed hands. Noticing the beaten and bruised body, and the disfigurement of hatred the reality that the lost soul had as much to do with Jesus crucifixion as the Roman soldiers did who physically hung him.

Understanding his misery, pain and agony is the stepping stone of why he went through the worst death in history. Every sin is re-posted on that cross but his blood shed cleared the defendants who committed them.

The repentant sinner’s heart is cleansed, purified and saved from eternity away from the Father. He has opened the gate and let us in.

There really is no comparable to match this outcome.

The “coming together” lends itself to total redemption for humans that don’t deserve anything good. If that doesn’t change a person, they haven’t truly been to the cross.

Folks this is no movie.

The hill of death may be today,

But as Jesus hung as “The King of the Jews” on Friday, his love for us looked past the pain.

Jesus was looking at Sunday.
