God’s Grace Revealed


Forgiveness of Sins

Leviticus 4:35- He shall remove all the fat, just as the fat is removed from the lamb of the fellowship offering,  the priest shall burn it on the alter on top of the offerings made to the Lord by fire. In this way the priest will make atonement for the sin he has committed, and he will be forgiven.

Leviticus 5:10- The priest shall then offer the other as a burnt offering in the prescribed way and make atonement for him for the sin he has committed, and he will be forgiven.


In the Old Testament animal sacrifices were required for the covering of sins. God was very specific about the atoning sacrifice. Leviticus 1, 6:8-13, 8:18-21, 16:24. Lev. 2, Lev 3, 4 and 5 all have scriptures describing God’s requirements for animal sacrifices before He will forgive sins.

Atoning for sin and receiving God’s forgiveness was just as crucial under the Old Testament as it is today. In those days, just as today, without the forgiveness of sins, God will remove his protection from our lives. He will do this however he chooses. The consequences will be whatever He chooses. His ultimate purpose is to bring us to repentance, and draw us back to Him, and back to His will.


Hebrews 10:4-12- For it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. 5-Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: “Sacrifice and offerings you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me; 6- with burnt offerings and sin offerings you were not pleased.” 7- Then I said, “Here I am—it is written about me in the scroll—I have come to do your will, O God. 8- First he said, “Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings you did not desire, nor were you pleased with them” (although the law requires them to be made). 9- Then he said, “Here I am, I have come to do your will.” He sets aside the first to establish the second. 10- And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11-Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins. 12- But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God.


In the New Testament we learn from Jesus that animal sacrifices never took away sins. That such sacrifices did not please God. The law required this sacrament for the forgiveness of sins, but sins were not gone, they were covered until later, waiting for the perfect sacrifice sent by God himself.


1 Corinthians 15:13-15- If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. 14- And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 15- More than that, we are then found to be false witnesses about God, for we testified about God that he raised Christ from the dead. But he did not raise him if in fact the dead are not raised.


Christ’s resurrection is the basis for our faith. The empty tomb was there for all the world to see. Jesus didn’t have to die on that horrible cross. He choose to. He was the final sin sacrifice for Lutherans, Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Muslim’s, etc, Chinese, Russians, Japanese, Africans, Asians, Americans, the entire world.

This life is not all there is. Everyone who has ever lived, and will ever live, is born into eternity. Death was not the end for Jesus and it will not be the end for us. Just as God raised Jesus from the grave, He will raise us up on the last day to live with Him in heaven for all eternity; believers in Christ.


2 Corinthians 4:14-15- Because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you in his presence. 15- All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.


The certainty we have in the resurrection is in God’s Word (Holy Bible). Also He raised Jesus from the grave just as Jesus said. If Jesus is your Lord and Savior, God will raise you on the last day as well.

If you are not absolutely certain of your salvation, that Jesus is your Lord and Savior, and Jesus lives in your heart, please pray with your whole heart the Believer’s Prayer above this article.

Praise God the tomb was empty,

Harness God’s Protection


Armor of God-1

Ephesians 6:13-18- Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.


If you are called by the Lord to read or study the gospel of Job you are being tested.

Satan petitioned God at His throne in heaven to test you. And God allowed Satan to do so for a reason. That’s right. Satan and God had a conversation at the throne of God in heaven and they discussed you. In time, God will reveal to you why He allowed Satan to test you.

During his testing, Satan attacks your emotions; agonizing fear and terror. Deep loss and depression. Uncontrollable crying. No appetite (food repulses you) and more. All to the point of near or possible death. He will cause you to lose your church, job, home, children, spouse, family, everything, life. He can only do what God allows him to do.

Job 1:12 The Lord said to Satan, “Very well then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.”

Job 2:6 The Lord said to Satan, “Very well then, he is in your hands, but you must spare his life.”

Satan will study you, look for your weakness, then use someone or something to attack you. If you are married, he will study your spouse as well. He will attack whichever of you two he feels is the easier target for him to destroy you and your spouse. His goal is to destroy your life—completely and totally.

Satan will use someone from your church, family, job, neighborhood, close friend, etc to betray you and his testing will begin. This person will behave demon-like. They will terrify you to the point of almost death. Remember Satan will manipulate your emotions. You will feel deep emotions that you would not normally feel. His testing may go on for years. You could be reduced to skin and bones while struggling to sleep or eat. You may be barely able to function in life as you attempt to keep your family together as you deal with whatever outside crisis Satan has brought into your life via this person or thing or circumstance he is using (his tool to torment you). This can go on until you are nearly to the point of death or your family is broken apart. You may lose your job, your home, lose everything.

The person Satan uses is always someone who is not saved but who is faking Christianity. If you remember back through history with this person, there were lots of red flags. And you did not know what to do with the warning signs so you ignored them. God tries to warn us to stay away from these people, but we must heed His warnings. Someone who is very loud, always drawing attention to themselves, is someone to keep an eye on. God loves the humble and meek. Learn to be a good fruit inspector. If God shows you the red flags, you don’t need to understand. Obey the Lord and keep your distance, you’ll be glad you did.

Galatians 5:22- 23a- But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Satan petitions God night and day to test the Lord’s people. To protect yourself against Satan’s testing, don’t tell lies, don’t gossip, don’t steal, pray continually, live a righteous life, live a Christ-like life. Be honest, good, humble, and fair. Do not have any unconfessed sin in your life. Read and study the bible (Word of God). Make sure your faith is sure and steady. Believe God keeps his promises. Make certain you are saved. That Jesus Christ is your Lord and Savior and the Holy Spirit dwells within you. Then pray in the Spirit for all the saints. And attend church.

Pray for wisdom. Pray for the Lord to draw you close to Him.

Psalms 91:11- For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways.

Pray for God’s hedge of protection. He will send His angles to protect you.

Pray that God will increase your faith; use you for His glory in this world.

When Satan is finished with you and your testing comes to an end, if your family is still intact, and you still have your job and home, you have fared better than most.

Know this, Satan always betrays the person he used to betray and test you (his tool). After Satan is finished with you and your family, he betrays that person and goes after them, but much, much worse. If you thought you got it bad, what you got was child’s play compared to what that person got from Satan.

Final note: The Lord (via my wife) asked me to write this article. The information I am giving you about testing and Satan, except for the scriptures, is from my own experiences.

Put on the Full Armor of God,

Born Into Eternity



Psalm 139:13-16 For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother‘s womb. 14- I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15- My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, 16- your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.

Job 33:4 The spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life.

John 5: 24 Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, whoever hears my word and believes Him who sent me has eternal life and will not be condemned; he has crossed over from death to life.”


We were all formed by the Lord in our mother’s womb. God breathed life into us, bringing us into eternity. That means, from that moment, the person we are (our soul) lives throughout eternity.

As everyone knows, one of the grim facts of life is that everyone dies in the Lord’s good time. If we consider that we are all born into eternity, then only our body ceases to function. We are still alive for all eternity.


Acts 7: 56 + 59 (The stoning of Stephen) “Look”, he said, “I see heaven open and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.” 59- Then he fell to his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.


For believers in Jesus Christ, heaven opens up and Jesus descends to escort us (soul) to the throne of God, at the moment of our bodies death.

For the unbeliever, Satan claims that person (soul) for all eternity.

Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior? Are you prepared for the next step in eternity? When we die. Are you going to spend eternity in heaven or hell? It’s your choice. The choice is very real.

Repent of your sins and ask Jesus into your heart and you will live for all eternity with the Father and Jesus, and every Christian.

There is a believer’s prayer above. Sincerely pray with a repentant heart and repent of your sins like a child before the Father in Heaven and experience Jesus’s forgiveness. Jesus will save you and become your Lord and Savior. This will insure your name is written in God’s book of life. You will have eternal life in heaven. You will be a Christian.

May God lead you to His salvation,

The Rider Appears!

Nadya and Danny are overtaken on the highway by Carrigan and ran off the road. Carrigan and his friends are the guys after Danny.

Johnny wakes in the hospital in Romania. After stealing painkillers, he flees. Nadya is there.

Carrigan calls his boss, Roarke, demands more money for Danny, due to the Rider. The devil is not happy. He speaks to Danny over the cell phone in a foreign language. Danny screams and passes out. The Rider will no longer be able to track Danny, a firewall of sorts. He can still track Carrigan.



Nadya also made a deal with Roarke, when dying years ago, she agreed to give him a baby to save her life. Danny, her son is also the devil’s son. That’s why he wants the boy so bad.

On Earth, the devil uses the Deal to achieve his dirty work.

Danny causes the car to crash and escapes from Carrigan and his guys.

johnny-fights-to-keep-the-rider-inAs Johnny fights to keep the Rider inside, he and Nadya interrogate to discover Danny’s whereabouts. An underground fight with gambling.

Danny is being held at the quarry by Carrigan and a lot of men with a lot of guns, an army. Nadya knows where the quarry is.

At the quarry, Carrigan’s army prepares for the Rider. They open the FGM- 148 Javelin. American bunker buster. Two-stage detonation. The seller is there. Carrigan wants four of them to battle the Rider.

The Rider arrives. Carrigan fires the first bunker buster. Direct hit, no effect.

Using his chain, the Rider begins disintegrating Carrigan’s men one-by-one.

A grenade explodes next to the Rider sending him spinning in the air. He quickly recovers and attacks.

the-rider-on-the-craneTheir weapons are having little effect as the Rider climbs aboard the giant crane. Operating it, he destroys the camp in a blaze of fire, all while laughing.

Carrigan prepares to shoot Danny. The Rider whips his chain and catches Carrigan’s foot stopping him.

Johnny’s time as the Rider has left him extremely thirsty. He’s drinking ice water by the pitcher. They must move fast to stay ahead of Carrigan and his gang.


No excuses this time!

Back at the quarry, Carrigan lies under a giant slab of cement and dies in the presence of Roarke without fulfilling his agreement to bring Danny to him. Roarke brings Carrigan back to life again, removes the slab of concrete. Now a zombie, with the power of decay.

Carrigan tests his powers on a nearby ambulance driver. Touching the paramedic’s face. He withered and decayed to death immediately.

Roarke wants Danny, no excuses this time!

Moreau arrives on his cycle. Takes them to his happy place. Monks live there.


The monastery

Moreau explains to Johnny, Zarathos was an angel, a spirit of justice, sent to protect the world of men. But he was tricked, captured, brought down to hell, corrupted. Driven in sane. His mission to protect the innocent was perverted into a lust to punish the guilty. He became the Spirit of Vengeance.

The angel, the Spirit of Justice, he is alive in there, somewhere, in Johnny Blaze. He could be?


Moreau and Benedict

Moreau serves Johnny communion. John falls into a deep, spirit-filled sleep and the demon flees his body. When he wakes, the monks are preparing to kill Danny, saying he must be destroyed, the son of Lucifer.



As the monks begin to behead Danny, Carrigan arrives and kills all the monks by touching them. They decay into dead masses like statues.

Danny is on his way to Roarke. A day of prophecy. Like the day Danny was conceived. The child must be in his 13th year before the rite can be performed. No more Danny only Roarke, Roarke’s essence go into Danny, his soul.  At the dawn of a new day in winter.

Johnny, Moreau, and Nadya go after Danny.

Uzak Gokten, Turkey – Carrigan delivers Danny to Roarke in the ambulance. He’s strapped to a gurney in the back so he will not escape. Danny meets his Father face-to-face, the devil.

danny-meets-his-fatherUzak Gokten, Turkey – The farthest point from heaven. That is where the ritual is to take place, according to the prophecy. Without the Rider they are helpless against Roarke.

Politicians, murderers, people of unspeakable power arrive from all over the world for the ceremony to greet their new king, the new devil. The most powerful devil the world has ever known, a shadow will fall upon the earth.

Danny has been tranquilized for the ceremony. His soul will be lost forever at the break of dawn. Roarke is now at his weakest point as the ceremony begins. The guests are clothed with black cloches with hoods as they watch the ceremony, nearly 300 people.


The witnesses and Carrigan, the zombie

Moreau and Johnny invade the ceremony. Moreau is killed by Carrigan.

Johnny regrets giving up his powers. Now the Rider is needed.

Carrigan begins to kill Johnny Blaze. Danny’s powers are the same as his dad’s, the devil. He gave Johnny back his powers, blowing fire into him. Johnny becomes the Rider again.

Roarke flees with Danny in a car to escape the Rider.


The Rider quickly catches the five-car-caravan and begins his assault. He and Carrigan battle. The Rider sucks out Carrigan’s soul, killing him. “Road kill.”


The Rider crashed Roarke’s car, then sends the devil back to hell.



The Rider delivers Danny to Nadya, his mom, and changes back to Johnny blaze.  Now Johnny is able to control the Rider.

Thor – The Dark World – Movie Review


Thor  The Dark World

Odin, “Long before the birth of light, there was darkness. And from that darkness came the Dark Elves, a millennium ago, the most ruthless of their kind, Malekith sought to transform our universe back into one of eternal night. Such evil was possible through the power of the Aether, an ancient force of infinite destruction.

The noble armies of Asguard, led by my father, King Bor, waged a mighty war against these creatures.

Dark Elves Ships' Graveyard From Wars

Dark Elves Ship Graveyard

As the nine worlds converged above him, Malekith could at last unleash the Aether. But Asguard ripped the weapon from his grasp. Without it, the Dark Elves fell.

With the battle all but lost, Malekith sacrificed his own people in a desperate attempt to lay waste to Asguard’s army. Malekith was vanished and the Aether was no more or so we were led to believe.

The Aether is buried deep were no one would ever find it.”

Snow White and the Huntsman – Movie Review


Snow White and the Huntsman

Once upon a time, in deep winter, a queen was admiring the falling snow when she saw a rose blooming in defiance of the cold. Reaching for it, she pricked her finger and three drops of blood fell. And because the red seemed so alive against the white she thought, “If only I had a child as white as snow, lips as red as blood, hair as black as a raven’s wings and all with the strength of that rose.”

Soon after, a daughter was born to the queen, named Snow White—beautiful and defiant.

As a young teen girl, William is her friend.

Also while young, the queen dies. During the King’s grief, an army attacks the kingdom. The dark army of non-humans is defeated.

Queen Ravenna

Queen Ravenna

During the battle, Ravenna, their leader, was captured. The king was immediately enchanted by her beauty. The next day he married her. After the ceremony, in the king’s bedroom, she kills him—a dagger to the heart.

Ravenna is now Queen of the kingdom with her own real army, not a phantom army.

Snow White is captured. William escapes with his father.

Ravenna’s kingdom slowly died because she’s so evil.

Snow in the tower

Snow White locked in the tower

Snow White remained locked in the North Tower, now a woman. She meets Greta, also caged in the high dungeon. She was captured while trying to reach Duke Hammond’s Castle.

To regain her youth, the queen sucks the life out of girls, thus killing them. She is impervious to dying by a sword.

On this day, the Queen’s magic mirror tells her the reason why her powers wane. Snow White is the fairest in the kingdom, not her. Only with Snow’s heart, the queen need not consume girl’s for youth, never to weaken or age again.

Finn in Snow's room

Finn in Snow’s room in the tower

Immortality, she needs Snow’s heart. “Finn!” she screams. “Bring me the king’s daughter!” Her brother obeys.

In the tower, Finn tries to have his way with Snow White, in her room. Snow escapes and runs into the tunnels and caverns then jumps into the sea.

Later on shore, Snow boards a white stallion as the guards pursue.  She escapes in the Dark Forest, an enchanted swamp.

Ravenna is furious with her brother Finn. They fight in her chamber. She summons and tricks a huntsman into going into the Dark Forest. “Bring back the girl and I will bring back your wife, a life for a life.”

The huntsman


The huntsman, Finn, and several of the queen’s soldiers go into the Dark Forest after Snow White. The huntsman soon finds Snow. She tells his he’s been double crossed by the queen, he sets Snow free. Fights the soldiers and Finn.

For a hundred gold pieces he will help Snow back to her castle. They do a spit-shake to seal the deal.

At the castle, William receives word that Snow has been locked in the queen’s high tower all these years, alive, now in the Dark Forest. He rides after her into the Dark Forest.

Troll attacks SnowA troll attacks in the Dark Forest, they fight off the attack.

Finn and the soldiers burn the village where Snow and the huntsman are staying.

The queen’s beauty is fading, thus her life is fading. She needs Snow’s heart or she will die.

White Deer

In Sanctuary, the magical white deer bows to Snow White

They meet dwarfs. They’re in a magical land, the Sanctuary, home of the fairies. A magical white deer with giant antlers enters Sanctuary. It bows to Snow.

Finn and his soldiers attack.

Huntsman kills Finn, he falls into the enchanted swamp. By the action, the queen sustains a serious injury, she later recovers.

Gus, a dwarf, takes an arrow while saving Snow, he dies. They cremate him.



Later, William gives Snow an apple. She takes a bite. The apple is poison. William is the evil queen, she turns into crows and flies away to her castle. Snow falls into a deep coma.

Through the town square, Snow is carried to the castle on a gurney. Laid in a large chamber in the castle.

The huntsman’s wife’s name was Sara. Snow reminds him of her, in heart and spirit. With streaming tears, he kisses her.

Show wakes and walks into the courtyard, dressed in the white dress of burial. She wants to ride into war against the queen. “Who will ride with me this day? Who will be my brothers?” Snow and her army rides!

The dwarfs attack the queen’s castle from the sewers.

Queen's castleThe queen’s army attacks over the castle walls as Snow’s army approaches.

The dwarfs raise the gate letting Snow’s depleted army into the castle. Hand-to-hand sword fighting ensues.

Snow goes after the queen as her men fight. During the fight between the queen and Snow, a fight that the queen is winning, Snow stabs the queen in the stomach with a dagger. “…and only by fairest blood is it undone.”

The queen died and turned very old.

Queen Snow WhiteLater Snow receives her crown, the queen.

Hail to the Queen!

The End

This was an enchanting remake. Very well done. It’s interesting how the character of Snow has changed from the original.

The dwarfs were only a minor part in this rewrite.
