I like to rock out

Luke 18:35-43

As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind man was sitting by the roadside begging. When he heard the crowd going by, he asked what was happening.

They told him, “Jesus of Nazareth is passing by.” He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Those who led the way rebuked him and told him to be quiet, but he shouted all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” “Lord, I want to see,” he replied.

Jesus said to him, “Receive your sight; your faith has healed you.”

Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus, praising God.

When all the people saw it, they also praised God.


Jesus referred to blind man’s faith.

Blind man did not say, ‘Thank you, Jesus, for healing me.”

Blind man said, “Heal me! Have mercy on me!”

Blind man called Jesus, “Son of David”.

Blind man asked to be healed.

Blind man kept asking.

Jesus said blind man had faith.

Blind man’s actions as recorded, from which we infer must have contained an expression of faith, mainly were asking.

Asking is an act of faith.

Keeping on asking is an act of faith.

Jesus healed the man who kept asking.

Jesus healed the man who said, “Have mercy on me”.

Jesus healed the man who said, “I have a problem, and You can fix it. Please fix it.”

Took 1000 mgs of niacin (B3) and now I’m all itchy and flushed all over. I guess my blood is really flowing thru the pipes.

I had posted a version of this song years ago, but I see the link is down. Here is a new one, a live version, of Ralf and Florian, AKA, Kraftwerk, doing ‘Tanzmusik’.

The very fact that you are using an overlay to ask for my email address is probably a good sign that you won’t be a good steward of my email address.

First try on jalapeno poppers

The peppers are too thick, probably should have been blanched or something, since they didn’t cook and were pretty raw tasting. Next time.

Perpetual Tone Amplifier

If I play thru the Vibrato channel of my Fender Twin, and then mic it, running thru the Clean channel, theoretically, a single note should play until eternity is over, given enough power. This is SCIENCE, and SCIENCE does not lie!

I will tell people this is the secret of my tone.
