Welcome to my blog. I am an Internet Pastor and prophet of Jehovah, God of the Bible.
As an Internet Pastor I do whatever stuff any pastor might do with his parishioners when contacting them via the Net. I do pastor a house church, but most of my congregation is actually geographically remote. I’ll offer the same services as much as possible, but my virtual congregation don’t belong to any organized religion, simply because I don’t either. I am legally ordained, but that’s another matter. None of my parishioners needs membership in anything; they aren’t even required to be Christians or religious at all. But they know I am and know what to expect from me. You may be able to extrapolate what an Internet Pastor might do. Chances are you harbor a vast wealth of misunderstanding about what a prophet is or does. Maybe I do, as well, but I am possessed of an undeniable certainty that drives my writing here on this blog. So the best I can do is make my case and let God work it out with you.
My primary calling is to prophesy against the sins of the US, both institutions and the people in them. In a broader sense I am called to prophesy against Western Civilization as a whole, because it is fundamentally hostile to God’s revelation. There’s more about that on my Philosophy page linked to one of the tabs displayed above.
It’s all about the message. It’s possible some of my work will entertain you, but that’s not the objective. I’m not much concerned about copyright and digital rights as commonly conceived in our world. If you read this stuff and it speaks to you, make it your own message. If you sense the need to use my particular string of words, do so. If you do, I want you to link to the source so people will know where you got it; they need the option of seeing for themselves if God speaks to them through this stuff, as well. If you make money from my words, God Himself would probably require you to make a donation to my ministry. There’s a tab for donations, too. This is all about God’s message, so He is the enforcer. It’s wholly unlikely I’ll come after you in any way.
I’ve left the original “About” page information below, simply for the sake of continuity and answering more mundane questions of who or what I am. Thanks for coming by.
You can call me Ed Hurst. Born in 1956, I am a disabled veteran, no fan of the US federal government under which I live, and passionately married to my one and only (Veloyce) since 1978. I am semi-retired, living on my Veterans’ Disability. I am no longer part of any crusade regarding computer operating systems — they all stink. At the moment, my only claim to fame is I write for Open for Business, an online magazine of sorts. Depending on what you seek to know about me, the best answer is perhaps to read my introductory first post. While I only hint at my theology there, a fuller explanation can be found here. For a more conventional explanation, perhaps a look at my resume will serve your purpose.
