  • NEVER STOP PRAYING

    As we celebrated Thanksgiving, I thought of friends and family members who were not at our table mainly because they do not know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.   Over the years they’ve accepted that there is a marked difference in the way we as Christians celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas, in that it’s always in the context of our joyful relationship with God.  At times like the holiday seasons, their refusal to accept salvation in Christ is sad and at times very frustrating to me.  I blame their stubbornness for our not getting together.  But then the Lord convicted me, that I partially share the blame.  He reminded me that I’ve stopped praying for lost friends and family members.  You see, I’ve gotten comfortable in celebrating the holidays with only Christians.  I’ve allowed my disappointments to lull me into a comfortable acceptance of their absence.  Sometimes it’s easier to vent our frustrations about the unsaved to other believers, but are we taking them to God?  James says that anyone who is having troubles should pray (James 5:13).  Praying for those that don’t know Christ takes persistence as it’s still God’s work to bring souls to the understanding of their need of His saving.  So remember, we’re God’s ear and voice to the world, praying is part of His work through us, and therefore  “let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart”  (Galatians 6:9).

  • THE SUPERIORITY OF THE LIFE IN CHRIST

    “...It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.” (Romans 8:34)

    In Hebrews 10:19­13:25, the writer speaks of the life we should live because of Christ’s work for us as High Priest.  After a person has accepted Christ as Savior, there are “levels” of Christian living.  Some choose to experience Christianity in the basement,  living just inside the building where it can be dark, dismal and gloomy.  There are other Christians who leave the first foundations and go on, living on the ground floor.  Some sunlight enters there but they continue to live close to the world and their outlook is dependent upon the circumstances around them.  Still others choose to live higher where sunlight and warmth flood the rooms.   The air is pure and the noise and attractions of the worldly street do not disturb them.  These Christians live above the world, hidden with Christ in God.  It is in this realm that God desires us all to live continuously, as those men and women of faith spoken of in Hebrews 11.  The Holy Spirit encourages us each to live a life of faith, fully relying on our Faithful God!

  • LARGER THAN LIFE

    Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father – the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.”  And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God. – Exodus 3:6

    When God calls us to get involved in His work, He doesn’t speak to us in the context of our credentials and what we can do for Him; instead, He speaks to us in the context of what He has done in the lives of those who have gone before us.  The same God that called Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Moses is now calling us to get involved in His work.  Do we see the significance of who is asking?  This is the God who created all things – maker of Heaven and Earth and everything in between.  And yet He saw fit to include us in His important work of salvation towards humanity.  He chose to involve insignificant people like you and me.  The task that God is asking us to do is larger than this life has to offer – it has eternal outcome.  When Moses came face to face with the same God who had guided his forefathers, he was deeply humbled.  How much more should we?

  • THINGS ARE NOT WHAT THEY SEEM

    “Simon Peter, who had a sword, pulled it out and struck the servant of the high priest, cutting off his right ear...Jesus said to Peter, ‘Put your sword back.  Shouldn’t I drink the cup the Father gave me?’”  (John 18:10­11 NCV)

    I confess I have a lot in common with Peter.  Like him, I believe in Jesus but would like  Jesus’ purposes to align to mine.  I also have my own sword that I sometimes use to “cut ears off.”  Shall I raise it now and try like Peter to keep things the way I perceive they should be or is there a greater plan in these troubling times?  Fast forward a number of days in Peter’s time.  Jesus suffered much more than just the arrest that night so that sin­stained souls could find redemption in His sacrifice.  Things weren’t what they seemed to be.   Freedom has come to you and me in His awful suffering, death and resurrection.  Shouldn’t we by His Spirit deny ourselves and in these perilous days plead all the more for the souls that remain to be released into God’s kingdom?   I encourage you to sheath your sword and open your heart to the lost among us.  “The Lord isn’t really being slow about His promise, as some people think...He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent” (2 Peter 3:9 NLT).  Come on, we still have work to do!

  • MUD COOKIES

    “I have food to eat of which you do not know… My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me…”   (John 4:32­34)

    Food is essential to sustain life.  The poor of Haiti know this more than most.  They eat what are called, “Mud Cookies.”  These cookies, made of dirt, butter and salt, hold little nutritional value, but manage to keep them barely alive.  The great need of Haiti’s poor touches our heart but there is a greater need.  It’s not physical food but spiritual food that’s essential for spiritual life.  Jesus spoke of it when He said, “I have food to eat of which you do not know… My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me….”  In a manner of speaking, Jesus is saying, stop eating ‘Mud Cookies’ for you must be sustained by My strength and blessed with My blessedness, for I have no other to give you.  It’s been said that, God gives what He has, not what He doesn’t have.  So if we will not learn to eat the only food that will truly sustain us, then we must starve eternally.  Anything else is, in effect, “Mud Cookies.”

  • TRUE PEACE

    “Pursue peace with all people and holiness...” (Hebrews 12:14)

    The scripture exhorts us to pursue peace with all people, and holiness.  Notice that “peace and holiness” are linked together.  In other words to be at peace with others the things that have caused the conflict must be made right.  Put another way, sinful people cannot create peace   either within themselves or among themselves, for sin can only produce strife and conflict. “For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there” (James 3:16).  The best that sinful man can hope for is a truce, which is merely a cessation of hostilities.  Whether on an international scale or an individual scale, a truce is really just a cold war.  So until the disagreements are resolved and things made right, the conflicts merely go underground, just  below the surface.  There they fester and then ultimately break out again.  Are you experiencing true peace or just a cessation of hostilities?  Don’t settle for a mere truce.  Instead, deal with the wrong that’s in you or between you and others. But make sure you first, “...remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye” (Matthew 7:5).

  • STAND FAST IN THE TRUTH

    “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.."  (Galatians 1:8)

    The other day, at the most inopportune time, the doorbell rang.  I opened the door to find a very friendly young man asking if I believe in God the Father?  “Of course,” I replied.  He went on to say that I must also believe in God the Mother.  He proudly proclaimed that he was a member of the Church of God and that they believe that Gen. 1:26–27 proves the existence of God the Mother.  He read, “Then God said, "Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness...”  So God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”  His explanation was simply that if Jesus is the Son of God, and God is the father of Jesus, then there must be a mother of Jesus.  I replied, “there is, her name is Mary,” and I bid him good day.  We must be in God’s Word daily so we are able to recognize errors and untruths.  The cults are out there, so stand fast in the TRUTH!

  • WASTED OPPORTUNITY?

    “Whether therefore you eat or drink or whatsoever you do, do all to the glory of God.”  (1 Corinthians 10:31)

    I learned this verse when I was at a private elementary school that stressed scripture  memorization.  This particular verse left a lasting impression upon me, because it states that no matter what we do, we’re to do ALL to the glory of God.  The other day, my son was going through high school basketball tryouts.  On his first day, he tried out for the JV 1 team.  At the end of the practice, he and six of his classmates were asked to attend the JV 2 team tryouts the following day.  They were bummed and said they had just wasted their time    because the coach didn’t even look at them.  I told them that nothing we do is ever a wasted opportunity.  We must put it in perspective and remember that in everything we do, someone is watching.  How important it is for us to remember this verse.  Why?  Because in everything we do regardless who we think is watching, we must do all to the glory of God.  Remember, God is watching.

  • JUST LIKE JESUS

    ...“This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased. Hear Him!” (Matthew 17:5)

    When God the Father spoke on that mountain, He proclaimed that Jesus was indeed the Son of God, that He was pleasing to God and we are to hear Him.  What are we to hear?  That He came to reveal the Father’s love and to die for the sins of the world (John 3:16), the    ultimate expression of love.  Everything Jesus did pleased the Father, leaving us an example to follow.  That begs the question, are we pleasing to God?  We can be by faith.  “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that he rewards those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6).  The best way to diligently seek Him is to be just like Jesus.  Jesus said, “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12).  To love like Jesus is to have a heart for God and for people – especially the lost.  Is that your heart?  Do you seek to be just like Jesus?  May you not only “Hear Him”, but also proclaim Him and His glorious plan of salvation!

  • WORD OF GOD SPEAK

    “But what about you?” he asked.  “Who do you say I am?”  Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”  Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.”  (Matthew 16:15-17 NIV)

    What a great truth made available to us in these verses.  Do you know Christ today?  It may be that you know of Christ because someone handed you a simple tract or shared a personal experience of what Christ has done in their life.  Maybe you were invited to church and the worship or preaching caught your interest, or maybe the witness of someone’s lifestyle attracted you.  As Jesus proclaims in verse 17, neither the words nor the actions of man will reveal who Christ is.  You will only come to know Christ through the work of the Father in heaven and this revelation will come through His Spirit and the study of His Word.  Please set aside time to let the living Word of God speak to you that you would not just know of Jesus but come to know Him as the one and only Son of the living God, your personal Savior, redeeming you from the grip of hell.

  • THE FIRST PROPHECY

    “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”  (Genesis 3:15)

    This is what God foretold to Satan after Satan had deceived the woman into eating the fruit.  I recently found out that when one is crucified they leave enough space between the feet and the crucifix to allow one to push up on the heels in an attempt to relieve the pressure of hanging on the cross.  This causes a severe bruising on the heel.  Jesus, hanging on the cross and being the blood sacrifice for our sins, bruised his heel and in doing so crushed the serpent’s head – defeating death and reconnecting us with God once and for all.

  • A LITTLE SWEETHEART NAMED “GRACIE”

    A typical day at preschool has everyone excited.  The children are back from a long weekend with their families and trying to get back in the groove.  The toddlers are pulling their parents and the parents are pulling their toddlers.  Preschoolers are showing off their new shoes that light up when they walk and the pre–kindergarteners can’t wait to tell about a trip they’ve been on or about their Saturday at the water park.  But Gracie comes in on her own and really doesn’t need to tell us about her weekend with her family because her happy, loving smile tells it all.  You see, Gracie has Down’s Syndrome which limits her communication skills.  Each of us comes to Jesus at a different level of spiritual understanding, and he extends his welcome to all who respond.  Mark 10:14 says, “...Let the little children come to me...” which applies to all children.  The gospel is simple, the Savior is approachable and His invitation is open to everyone, especially all the little Gracies in the world.

  • HOW ARE YOU BUILDING YOUR HOUSE?

    “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”  (Romans 10:17)

    Growing up in the Midwest, I can vividly remember living through many tornadoes.  When the sirens would start to blare, we would run for cover to escape the danger.  The safest places would be in cellars or somewhere protected by the foundation of the house.  It seemed the houses destroyed most frequently were mobile or prefabricated homes.  The safest were those built with a strong foundation and solid construction.  In Matthew 7:24–27, Jesus tells the parable of the builders.  Of interesting note, the parable says, “…the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house…”  It didn’t say “if” these things happened, they did happen.  Trials come that challenge the strength of our house (life)…it’s inevitable.  What protects us during the storms is the foundation our life is built upon.  Also, when we’ve been constructed solidly (through faith), we are more secure in the storms.  God bless and build wisely.

  • THOUGHTS OF THANKSGIVING

    “How we praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we belong to Christ.”  Ephesians 1:3 NLT

    I can be pessimistic, and no I’m not always thankful.  Now you know—I’m not perfect.   But God is, and He loves us in a way we can’t imagine.  The cross is the symbol of God’s love.  He loved His son and gave Him for undeserving sinners.  While trudging through my resume this week, I saw all the things God had allowed me to do while here in Hawaii.  I shouted out praise to God!  He was using my resume to remind me of how blessed I really am and how much He is woven into the details of my life.  Sometimes we get so focused on our struggles that we forget all God has done for us thus far and just how faithful He really is.  Paul said in Philippians 4:4 NLT, “Always be full of joy in the Lord.”  Impossible you may say.  When you accepted new life in Christ, you also received all of God’s promises.  He promised to never leave you nor forsake you (Hebrews 13:5).  He also said He is the author and     finisher of your faith (Hebrews 12:2) and promised to take you to the place he prepared for you (John 14:3).  If you’re weak, thank Him.  It’s just another chance for God to be glorified through the finished work of His Son.  So Rejoice!

  • YouTubeHD Encoding Guide

    HD Video Encoding Tutorial: Encoder settings for YouTubeHD using Sony Vegas Pro 9.0

    This tutorial will show how to optimize your HD video output for uploading to YouTube, or any other video hosting. These settings will provide the best output quality while keeping the file size as small as possible.

    The screenshots are taken from Sony Vegas 9; however, the same settings can be applied on your video editing/encoding software of choice, given the settings are customizable.


    The Settings

    After you have completed the editing on your video and you're ready to render your output, first check to see your project settings.
     
     
    Set the project properties for 1080p progressive video. Note that setting the pixel format to 32-bit floating point (full range) is important to get accurate color representation. Using 8-bit usually results in a darker output, which leads to further darkening when uploaded and played on YouTube.
     
    After checking your project properties, go to 'File' on the menu, then select 'Render As' to select and set your final output settings.
     
     
    Select 'Mainconcept AVC/AAC' (which is the same as h.264), then click on 'Custom...' to customize the settings.
     

    Select the 'Main' Profile, as well as your desired frame rate. The frame rate setting would depend on your source video.

    Set the reference frames to 3 since the video is mostly full motion, meaning there is little benefit in using lots of reference frames, which will only greatly lengthen the encoding time (though Sony Vegas may sometimes change this automatically). If your source video is animation, however, (or any video with repetitive motion) using more reference frames may help reduce your output file size and/or improve quality.

    And as seen on the image, set the average bit rate to 3.8 Mbps (which I will later explain why). The maximum 135 Mbps is just a ceiling based on the maximum Main profile bit rate for level 5 AVC/h.264. It doesn't have to be this high, but it doesn't really impact the output file size. You can adjust this if you want, but don't set this too close to the average value, as the encoder will limit the bit rate in a certain scene that may require a higher value.



    Set the sample rate to 48 KHz and the bit rate to 128 Kbps.


    Project settings, set to Best.

    Then simply proceed with your render and you're done!
  • HOW IMPORTANT IS PRAYER?

    I am still troubled by a statement made years ago back in Oregon.  I was going through a trial and a friend said to me, “I’m sorry, but all I can do for you is pray.”  It was as if his first choice would have been to solve my problem.  But that not being possible, his last choice, his default solution, was to pray for my situation.  So how important is prayer?  The disciples witnessed Jesus raise the dead, heal the sick, feed the multitude, cast out demons and preach the word, but they didn’t ask to be taught to do any of those things.  The one thing they observed Jesus do that they asked Him to teach them is found in Luke 11:1, “Lord, teach us to pray…”  And, Jesus said in Matthew 21:13, Mark 11:17 and Luke 19:46, “My house shall be called a house of prayer…”  So, is prayer important?  Does it work?  Ask the little girl who attended the “Pray for Rain” service at her little church in a drought-stricken, Mid-Western community—she’s the only one that brought the umbrella.

  • Give Thanks

    In Luke 17:12-16, the bible talks about the ten lepers that Jesus healed.  One of them, when he saw that he was healed, returned, and with a loud voice he glorified God and fell down at His feet, giving Him thanks.  He was a Samaritan and a leper which is considered a social outcast.  We also were considered as outcasts which at that time we were without Christ,  being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.  But now in Christ Jesus, we who once were afar off have been brought near by the blood of Christ (Ephesians 2).  And like the Samaritan who came and gave thanks because he was no longer an outcast; we, in the same manner should also come and give thanks because we are no longer an outcast from God.  So by God’s grace let us always be that one who comes back and give thanks for our salvation that is only found in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  PRAISE JESUS!

  • HAVE YOU CONSIDERED SERVING THE LORD?

    HAVE YOU CONSIDERED SERVING THE LORD?
     
    God can’t use a person like me, right?  People who serve the Lord are righteous and good, right?  Well, let’s consider the Biblical evidence.  Consider Noah, a former preacher of 120 years with not even one convert.  Then there is Joseph, the big dreamer with a prison record.  Next, we have Moses, a poor communicator with a bad temper.  He fled his country because he murdered an Egyptian.  Even the great King David committed adultery with Bathsheba and then conspired and had her husband killed.  And John, who said that he’s a Baptist, but definitely didn’t dress like one.  He slept outdoors, eating grasshoppers and provoking religious leaders.  Even today, many servants look weird to the world and other believers.  If we could be good then Jesus did not need to die on His cross for us (me).  In Mark 10:18, Jesus said unto him, “Why callest thou me good? There is none good but one, that is, God.”  We desperately need a Savior and Redeemer.  Jesus wants our fellowship.  Consider serving our Lord Jesus Christ in some way and long to that time when He will say to you, “Well done good and faithful servant.”

  • Kahiau or Ku'aku'ai

    Kahiau  -OR- Ku'aku'ai

    Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver. – 2 Corinthians 9:7 KJV

     

    Kahiau is a Hawaiian word which means to give freely without expecting anything in return.  Ku'aku'ai is another Hawaiian word for giving, but it means to give for the sake of receiving something in return.

     

    This comparison of giving reminds me of the story found in Luke 10:25-37 about the Good Samaritan.  Two men of high status both with the same ethnic background as the badly injured male chose to pass the victim and not offer any assistance.  However, a man of Samaritan descent who came from a group of people who were not well liked by the Israelites was the only passerby that stopped.  He could have easily given monies with an expectation of receiving payment in return.  Instead, he extended his assistance beyond just giving him a ride to his destination.  The Samaritan tended to his wounds, gave him food and drink to regain his health, clothed him, and housed the victim.  In verse 35, the Samaritan man pays the innkeeper monies to cover the cost of the Israelite’s room and board, but also assured the innkeeper that he would insure any additional expenses.  The Samaritan was a witness by not securing a way of being paid back.  He didn’t give with the spirit of Ku'aku'ai, but instead he gave with the spirit of Kahiau.  He gave with the expectation of never receiving anything in return.  What a great attitude for us to mimic … one that we should remember during this season of Thanksgiving: Give thankfully, give cheerfully, and give with no expectations of receiving something in return.”                                                                                     ̴ Kalani Fronda

  • Walk this way

    WALK THIS WAY

    Want your kids to be more than just kids raised in a church?  Want your kids to have a living, active relationship with Christ?   Well, don’t just “talk the talk,” you need to “walk the walk.”  Proverbs 20:7 NLT says, “The godly WALK with integrity; blessed are their children after them.”  I’ve been attending church a long time.  Even though I tried to be the same at home as I am at church - I’m still putting  on a front.  We can’t do that with our kids.  They see us at church AND at home. They don’t buy into the “do as I say not as I do” philosophy.  My kids know after twelve hours of “wakey-wakey” I am “grumpy-grumpy.”  Sometimes I have to repent for snapping at my kids (and wife).  This is where the gospel power in our heart meets the path of our life.  In 1 Corinthians 4:16 NLT Paul states, “...follow my example and do as I do.”  We must succeed in letting Christ live in our hearts and through our lives.  We must die to ourselves each and every day.  We must decrease and He must increase.  Our children (not to mention the rest of the world) are watching.  Walk worthy of your calling.                                                                                                        ̴  Kip Brumm
