The Bright and Morning Star

main image

As we draw closer to the day in which we celebrate God's greatest gift to the world, let's reflect on the true reason for the season, Jesus the Christ. Jesus is our Bright and Morning Star. He is the Star of the entire creation and redemption process.  No other Star is greater than Jesus Christ. Why?! Because “There is no salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”  Just as the wise men looked  up to a star to guide them to baby Jesus, we too need to look up and see our Bright and Morning Star sitting at the right hand of Power.  All we have to do is look up. Stars can only be seen by looking up.  Whatever we need in life, look up to the Bright and Morning Star as our guide, because wherever he guides he provides.

“After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen when it rose went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.” Matthew 2;9-10 NIV

Watch Out the Devil is Mad

The Book of Revelation is an apocalyptic book wrapped in mystery. It is a vivid account of  the war in Heaven between angels  led by the Archangel Michael against the angels led by "the dragon" or the devil. The Bible warns us about seducing spirits in the world, especially in the church.  Any doctrine that contradicts the Word of God, as believers we must reject it. The seducing doctrine of demons has heavily penetrated our culture. It is with great sadness that this doctrine appears to be penetrating some local, state, and national branches of government.

The talk of nationalism has fanned the flames of white supremacy and divisiveness. Instead of being the United States of America, we are becoming the Divided States of America. Our secular and sacred leaders should be on alert for all enemies, both foreign and domestic, who pose a threat to our national and individual security. What greater threat can there be than an enemy who divides us? The demons of hell are crafty and cunning. The hatred, vitriol, and acts of violence are the direct results of the  demons doctrine. Please note that these demons are angry (Revelation 12:12) because humans have replaced them as God's caretakers of the earth and they know that their time is limited.

Unless we study and understand who they are and their goals, we will be victims of the deception in the nation and the postmodern church. As believers, Our methods of counter attack should be to draw near to God and he will draw near to us, study God’s word to build up our inner man, and finally put on the whole armour of God so that you will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11-18),  If we do this, we too will have the victory over the devil and his angels.

What do you think about demons in our land? Can they be dislodged? If so, how do we evict them from our own lives and our nation?

A Community United in Faith

The Williamsburg community came together as one on Monday October 29th, at the Williamsburg Unitarian Universalists Church to remember the eleven (11) victims who lost their lives in a mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue in Squirrel Hill, Pennsylvania. People of all genders, races, backgrounds, political orientation, and walks of life listened attentively and emotionally as Reverend Reginald F. Davis spoke words of comfort. He stated "Brothers and sisters let us not despair. The God we serve is still on the throne. Evil and hatred have within them the seed of their own destruction. Anti-Semitism won't overrule the Fatherhood of God and the brotherhood and sisterhood of mankind."

The one thing that each of the attendees had in common was "A Strong Faith". Reverend Davis assured them that "Darkness will not triumph over the light and evil will not triumph over good. God is with us". Finally he reminded the congregation of the promises, rewards and challenges of Faith as written in the first nine verses of the 37th Psalms. "Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away. Trust in the Lord and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this: He will make your righteous reward shine like the dawn, your vindication like the noonday sun. Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; do not fret when people succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes. Refrain from anger and turn from wrath; do not fret-it leads only to evil. For those who are evil will be destroyed, but those who hope in the Lord will inherit the land."

Let us pursue Love not Hate. Remember God is Love.
