Just wanted to take some time to wish all the readers a Happy Thanksgiving! Whether you are actually celebrating the US holiday or not, I would like to encourage you to take some time today and thank God for all that you have. While I realize that some may not think that they have much worth being thankful for, I am sure that everyone has at least one thing. Today, thank God for that one thing and praise Him because He’s worthy!

What’s happening with the blog?

For the two of you that still read this blog (thank you!), I wanted to let you know that starting next week there will be some changes. All of this is what I hope to do and may be subject to change depending on what is going on in my personal life.

Starting next week, Mondays we will be posting a Bible study that you can follow along with. We will be going “line by line” through different books of the Bible. As would be appropriate, we are going to start in Genesis! 🙂 This will be done by myself and the divisions of scripture will be dependent on what I can get done with proper study and prayer. Because designs have become sporadic lately, we are going to make Wednesdays the potpurri day. This will be a mix of designs, events, and other blogs that I have been studying for. Fridays will hopefully be a day of focus on what is happening to Christians around the world. We have been troubled by what happens to Christians outside of America and hope to provide a short glimpse of the trials, tribulations, and death that they face on a daily basis just for calling themselves Christian. Sundays will still be for newslinks and will still offer a mix of Christian stories to keep you up on the latest happenings from a Christian viewpoint.

We hope to be more diligent about getting things posted on time and appreciate your time and patience in reading this blog. We would be extremely grateful if you would add us to your blog roll, pass along the link to both the blog and our shop, and find our page on FB. Our main desire is to glorify God and see the lost find the gift of salvation in Jesus Christ, and we would like to thank you for reading this blog and hope to have much more interaction as the blog grows!

We are on Facebook now!

At Ease Tees now has a Facebook fan page. We keep updates on our blogs, our designs, and all of the other events we are involved in on that page. We have also started posting discussion threads on our page so that our fans can join in some invigorating discussion about Biblical topics. The only thing that we ask is that the discussions are civil and with the understanding that there are children reading.  We hope that you will become involved with our discussions and our page and give us ideas on how we can make our ministry better!

Since I’ve upgraded to Windows 7 and IE8, I’ve been unable to paste links into my blog. Until I can do this, I won’t have the ability to post newslinks. I haven’t tried FireFox yet but will do that later today. Hopefully I’ll be able to get this back on track!

Thanks for your patience!

Over the past few weeks, there have been tragic stories in the American news outlets that have shown me some saddening things. While some of the saddening things are the stories themselves, others are the reactions of those who have watched the stories unfold. Continue Reading Hero Worship…

Claiming honor in the presence of the king

Many Christians today talk about the freedom, power, and authority they have. They talk about being bold and aggressive in their prayers. They demand things from God as they pray and command everything to obey them from the human body to the weather to demons and evil spirits.

Not only that, they talk about how they’re “anointed”, “called”, or “gifted” for the “ministry” they are doing. They use this prestige and “anointing” to lead people “into the throne room of God”, “storming the gates of heaven” to get their “vision” accomplished. They shout, yell, whoop, holler, and get red-faced when they preach or pray. Many of them strive to pack “megachurches” with thousands of seats. They preach whatever is necessary to keep people there and love to be looked on as leaders. They are happy to be sought out for advice and always have an opinion to give. They maneuver themselves into places of “power” and gain greater degrees of fame as their notoriety grows. But is this biblical? Is it right?
