He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. (Matthew 28:6)
He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. (Matthew 28:6)
Do YOU believe it? Do YOU believe what God says? The Bible foretold of our Saviour Jesus way back in Genesis 3:15.
Do YOU believe it… Just as He said? There is a sad, growing trend, to dismiss Genesis as fact, even in many our our Bible preaching churches. We have decided to believe fallible man’s opinion rather than infallible God’s Word. If you don’t believe what He said about our Saviour in Genesis, why would you believe it in Matthew?
So, do YOU believe it? Just as He said? He is not here; He has risen!
Happy Resurrection Day. It happened JUST AS HE SAID, starting from Genesis.

I’m getting excited about this film.Courageous is being made by a church in Albany, Georgia. This will be their fourth movie, the latest being Fireproof. Our family loves and has each of their previous movies. Check out Courageous’ web site HERE, and find their older films HERE. These are GREAT FAMILY MOVIES!
Our church had the Montana Mens’ Encounter in late February.Reggie Dabbs was our main speaker. Reggie has a powerful ministry to youth and the testimony of what God has done in his life is awesome! He also plays a mean saxophone. I took a short video, and here it is…
It is amazing! Performers can come out at half time and disrobe, and there is hardly a whisper heard about it. Talk about a mothers love for her son (before and after he is born), and all hell breaks loose… literally. Hell does not like messages of hope and life, and it is showing in the media, in the feminists, and the liberal left. All these people who are crying out against it have not even seen it yet! We have to remember though, that they are not the enemy. For our war is not against flesh and blood, and these poor souls are confused and deceived. Lord, open their eyes to see The Truth, and The Truth will set them free!
All the controversy is around a commercial by Focus On The Family. Some information from Focus is below. The actual commercial won’t be available until it airs during the Super Bowl. A handful of private individuals put up the money for the ad, and Focus’ general fund was not tapped. God bless you Focus, and God bless America!
Focus Action Update™ Feb. 5, 2010
This week: The whole country is talking about the sanctity of life, thanks to an upcoming Super Bowl ad featuring star quarterback Tim Tebow and his mom.
By now you’ve likely heard about what’s been called the most controversial ad to appear in the Super Bowl in many years–a Focus on the Family® spot featuring Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Tim Tebow and his mother, sharing a message of “celebrate family, celebrate life.”
For the past two weeks, major television networks, news outlets and even Saturday Night Live have jumped into the dialogue. We’ve been accused by a few organizations of being anti-woman, intolerant, divisive, and spewing hate. But what’s most amazing about these charges is that they’re based entirely on conjecture–none of our critics has yet seen the ad! (Beginning on Sunday, after the game, you can access the ad on FocusOnTheFamily.com.)
In responding to these charges, Focus President Jim Daly has had the chance to share the true message of this ad in interview after national interview–and the sheer volume of coverage for our message of celebrating family and life has been worth far more than the cost of the ad itself.
Besides that, the media, in covering the controversy, has conveyed many more details about the difficulties surrounding Tim’s birth than we’ve been able to put in one 30-second ad. From the beginning, our goal has been to stimulate a discussion about the beauty of life and a mother’s determination to bear that life. Wow, is that conversation ever happening.
A “win-win” already!
The Super Bowl is the single biggest TV attraction of the year. What better way to reach what many estimate could be 100 million people with a life and family-affirming message? People seeking help with their marriages or children will see a message of hope during one of the biggest family gatherings of the year.
Please join us in prayer this Sunday during the Super Bowl that those people who need help with their families will contact Focus via our toll-free phone number, (800) A-FAMILY (232-6459) or visit FocusOnTheFamily.com. I also hope you’ll forward this message on to your friends so that they’ll know to watch for the ad and know why we aired it.
For faith and family,
Senior Vice President, Government & Public Policy

I travel around the beautiful state of Montana for on my job. I enjoy taking pictures of beautiful or unusual things along the way. At one of my stops, there were quite a few bushes around covered with small ripe plumbs.
I spotted this one off in an area by itself. When I saw this little bush, I though it had a very spiritual concept behind it.
Its job is to bear fruit. Not to look pretty, or hang around other bushes that are bearing fruit, but to do what it was created to do… Bear Fruit!
In our walk with the Lord, do we bear fruit? Is it our life purpose to bear fruit for the kingdom? Or, do we like to look pretty, hang around those that also look pretty… even in church?!
15“Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. 16By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? 17Likewise every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
Matthew 7:15-20 (NIV)
What kind of fruit are we producing? Do we live our lives like the false prophets, full of show, but inwardly dead? Or are we bearing good fruit for the kindom? Are we the real thing? Or when it is all over, will be be thrown into the fire?
