In everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. [1Thessalonians 5:18]


Blessings to you all, my friends, each and every one of you, going back twelve years, Thanks for reading and all your support.

Some of you may have noticed my absence and that I haven’t posted for several weeks. I do miss all of you and have tried to keep up with your posts but can no longer do so. Changes are afoot. Toward the end of March I experienced a circumstance which disallows me from writing as I once did. I have therefore made the necessary effort to write today’s post, since the anniversary is important, though it will likely be my final post until circumstances change for the better, and they will. I would appreciate your prayers until then. Such circumstances must involve the Miracle Realm but this is not a problem because I believe in miracles. Miracles are the Lord’s promise. He came to give us abundant life and that includes blessing us with miracles.

We must always be cognizant of the fact that the Word of God clearly states the existence of both a natural world and an unseen spiritual world. The spiritual world came first. The Lord worked from the spiritual world to create the natural world. The natural world is extremely limited, but in the spiritual world, with God, ALL things are possible.

Nevertheless, most people, including most Christians, only believe and/or pay attention to what they can experience though the five senses. They are overwhelmed by the natural world and fill their lives with it. They simply do not understand or honor the fact that each person has a spirit in seed form which can and must be activated and which facilitates the mandatory born-again process the Lord Jesus revealed. Without a born-again experience a person is doomed to live out his or her life purely in the natural and will know nothing else. All the promises and benefits of the spiritual world are thus not available to them by their choice.

In my time away I have noticed much more than before the deficiencies of gaining fellowship and having true spiritual communication through this digital medium. As much as I appreciate you all, you are all essentially and effectively a million miles away. I greatly value our communication, your insightful and heartfelt comments, and my ability to reply. I love that process. As a teacher, it gives me a great opportunity to share what I have come to know, hopefully, for your benefit, just as you all benefit from the support and interaction of others regarding your work.

But now that I can no longer write or engage in my research at present, it has been somewhat problematic to maintain the spiritual zeal required for my calling, but I have since made the required adjustments. In case you’re wondering, the Lord allowed the aforesaid circumstance to happen though I do not believe He is the author of it. Regardless, I must thank Him for it. We must be thankful in all things and I am thus thankful that I can no longer engage in my labor of love as I once did. I honor the Lord always. He went to the cross, died for my sins, and saved my soul a lifetime ago and I am forever appreciative and eternally grateful. He expressed the greatest love for all of us. He is the greatest.

I have been taking up the slack by spending more time in prayer. I have also been fasting more. As a result, the Lord has been revealing things to me that I likely would not have received and seen otherwise. For a man who spends so much time reading, writing, studying, doing research, teaching, and engaging in spiritual communication with you all though through a limited medium, it is a drag to have to stop all this until the miracle arrives, and it will.

I appreciate those of you who continue to check in and read my past articles. My hope for each of you is that you be blessed of the Lord beyond measure and continue growing ever closer to Him and to the doing of His will in your lives.

Our Lord Jesus is worth everything. He gave everything. He became last in all things so He could be first in all things. All glory, honor, and praise to Him. He is our conquering Hero who defeated all enemies for all time. He proves this every day. May He prove it to the fullness in each of your lives. Don’t ever stop believing in miracles.

Thanks again. It’s been a great twelve years.

With love and appreciation,



16 Be happy [in your faith] and rejoice and be glad-hearted continually—always.

17 Be unceasing in prayer—praying perseveringly.

18 Thank [God] in everything—no matter what the circumstances may be, be thankful and give thanks; for this is the will of God for you [who are] in Christ Jesus [the Revealer and Mediator of that will].

19 Do not quench (suppress or subdue) the (Holy) Spirit.

20 Do not spurn the gifts and utterances of the prophets—do not depreciate prophetic revelations nor despise inspired instruction or exhortation or warning.

21 But test and prove all things [until you can recognize] what is good; [to that] hold fast.

22 Abstain from evil—shrink from it and keep aloof from it—in whatever form or whatever kind it may be.

23 And may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through—that is, separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God—and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah.

24 Faithful is He who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [that is, fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you].

25 Brethren, pray for us.

26 Greet all the brethren with a sacred kiss.

27 I solemnly charge you [in the name of] the Lord to have this letter read before all the brethren.

28 The grace (the unmerited favor and blessings) of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, be with you all. Amen, so be it. [1Thessalonians 5:16-28] [1]

  4. Sorry to hear about your struggles, RJ. I will pray for you- that the Lord would keep you strong in the faith. Persevere, my friend. God bless your break and this time of rest.


  5. Dear RJ, these are the only two letters I know you by and I have been checking daily wondering where you have been. But yet knowing that your connection with our Father may have taken you down another path. Early this morning I wrote a post on my site, stating that I went for a walk this morning and felt a strong push that I must leave the World Wide Web for awhile. He spoke to me, that as much as I love sharing my photos here, that I need to step away from it for a time and reconnect with Him. I was sitting on a bench by myself and there was nothing but silence, no bright lights from the computer, no beeps on a phone of notifications and I felt so much peace and oneness with Him. As if He said, ” Come to me and sit for awhile”. So that is what I am going to do. I had to check one more time on my computer to see if you were still here and I read this page of yours. How He touches us is amazing, He can bring us to Him, you and I and so many others no matter where we are in the world. If we will just listen to Him. I pray that you will be better soon, you are His son, I am His daughter. He has plans for us and we need to heed His callings. I will think of you often dear RJ and look forward to hearing from you again one day, as I walk away from the internet for a short time as well. Blessings to you Sir and friend, may He hold you in His embrace and give you strength and healing to continue His work.


    • Thanks Sandra. I greatly appreciate your response and the fact that you have been checking my site for posts and also checking on me.

      Goodbyes are rough. I will miss y’all. I will need to catch up on your latest posts before you go.

      I am not stepping away from writing and posting by choice. A serious unfortunate circumstance occurred. Yet, the Lord had allowed it. He then began turning it into good. There is a new spiritual process occurring in my life now and I must proceed forward.

      I feel I was right in the middle of things with a strong desire to keep doing what I had been doing for so long and even more but now cannot. I also know that staying away on WP means eventually losing contact with my readers, an unfortunate reality, which is par for the course with this medium. I have already apparently lost contact with many. I am very thankful this has not occurred with you.

      On the one hand, it is sad to see that you are stepping away. You have been so wonderfully faithful, posting exceptional content daily for years. You have created a great site along with your other many ventures and have a very large family of readers who love and appreciate you and your work. But we must obey the Lord. For now, He has something better. It could be a time of growing closer.

      I hope we do not lose contact. Thank you for all your faithful support of my site and the many great comments you have made here. They are a treasure to me. And thank you for your prayers. I will be praying for y’all.

      Onward with the Lord. Blessings to you my good friend

      • Thank you RJ, for your kind words. I am only taking a short break. I feel our Father has given me the gift of Photography and I will share them with others for as long as I can. I appreciate all the lessons you have shared and am so blessed to have met you. 😊

  6. Thank you for letting us know and giving us, your readers, the privilege to pray for you. I know God does miracles and I’m certain He will continue to do them. May you be encouraged as you wait upon the Lord and be blessed by this new season of not writing. I love how God does things we don’t expect and uses those things we see as set backs or problems. May your walk with the Lord Jesus become even more precious. God bless and keep you, causing His face to shine upon you and give you peace. 🙏


    • Thank you very much, Hope, for your encouraging comment. I greatly appreciate it. More good continues to come from this. The Lord is great in all His ways. Thank you for your prayers. I miss reading your posts. You are exceptionally consistent putting forth good content every day and your readers are blessed. May the Lord increase His blessings to you and your family accordingly and may you all be in excellent health. All glory to our Lord Jesus. Amen.

      • Amen. RJ, your comment really blessed me and all glory goes to God. My health has been a trial of late, but I’m learning to rest in the limitations my body requires and to thank God. I find my relationship with the Lord always deepens when my health restricts my activity. It’s well worth the discomfort. I’ll continue to pray as the Lord leads and I thank God for you and what He is doing in and through your life. God is truly great in all His ways. May He carry you in His arms through this season of change and bless you abundantly.

  7. Bye for now, RJ, will miss your writings and your presence on WP. May God be with you and see you through. I’m praying for you. You had been on my mind. Now I know there was reason.
