Greetings to you my friends -

Yesterday in our Sunday Services here at Applegate, I shared a message from Romans 5:1-5 entitled Perfect Peace.

At the end of the message, I shared some challenging news with the congregation relating to my family, particularly my son Peter-John.

I am providing that particular section of the sermon in the video clip above.

If you would like, you can hear the complete teaching by going to Most Recent Teachings in the Teachings section.

We so appreciate your prayers for Peter, his sweet family and our entire clan.

Abundant Shalom in Jesus Name,


Daily Devotional

And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah ...
Revelation 5:5
The ‘Lion of the tribe of Judah’ takes us back to Genesis 49, where Jacob calls his twelve sons together to pronounce a blessing upon them. As he comes to Judah, Jacob likens him to a lion’s whelp, and then says that power and authority would be his until the coming of Messiah ...

The year is AD 12. In the springtime, the Romans issue a decree declaring that the Jewish people would no longer be able to carry out capital punishment. The rabbis’ response to the decree was immediate because they believed capital punishment was the cornerstone of government as defined in the Noahic Covenant. When they were denied this fundamental aspect of government, and thereby rendered powerless as a nation, the rabbis rushed into the streets of Jerusalem, rending their clothes and smiting their breasts.

In fact, we are told the whole city was filled with the wailing of rabbis who understood that something terrible was happening. The scepter had departed; the authority was gone; and Messiah had not come — or so they thought. For on that very day, guess Who was sitting in the Temple in Jerusalem as a twelve-year-old young Man, confounding the scribes and thinkers on the scene: The Lion of the Tribe of Judah — Jesus Christ.

So too, how often we throw dirt in the air and wail and moan, ripping our clothes and crying, ‘Where are You, Lord?’ — when He’s right in our midst, working everything out perfectly.
