I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

The Gates of Hell Shall Not Prevail

Hi -

Scriptures are from the King James Holy Bible.

I’m known in my community…for being on fire for our Lord.  That deeply disturbs some folks. I'm in the best company, though, with Jesus who was hated for His holiness. 

John 15:18
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

Today I got confirmation from the devil that I abide in GOD.  I went on a lengthy walk and as soon as I reached precisely in front of a particular house’s front yard, the devil’s messenger came out of the house and turned on the yard’s water sprinkler.  It wasn’t in the messenger’s hand but situated on the ground in the yard.  The messenger waited for me to get right there and then bent over and turned the sprinkler on to wet me.

What did I do?  I refused to even look at the messenger - likely that was the messenger's desire.  I stopped, stood there, turned around and, out loud, in certain ear shot of the messenger, praised our Lord for the water that He gave the devil to wet me with.  I praised the Lord and proclaimed, “Lord, thank You for the rain from Your heaven where the devil ain’t going.”  I stood there a few minutes and deliberately got wet some more as I praised most High GOD for His water, etc.

I had left home today in my army camouflage hat and pants.  Dressed for war - yes indeed.  And the devil brought war to me - but he didn’t get the victory.  The Holy Ghost within me prevailed. 

The sprinkle praise dance resulted in my pants getting pretty wet.  I had numerous more blocks to walk. By the time that I got home our Lord’s SON/sun had dried my pants.

P.S. And when I finished my praise in front of that yard, I closed the gate there and loudly proclaimed, “The gates of hell shall not prevail.”


I seize this opportunity to go on public record to thank the devil for inspiring me to write this watery piece.

Jeremiah 17:13 
…the Lord, the fountain of living waters.

Deuteronomy 23:5 
..but the Lord thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the Lord thy God loved thee.

Jeremiah 1:19 
And they shall fight against thee: but they shall not prevail against thee, for I am with thee, saith the Lord to deliver thee.
