The Messianic Refuge is a safe haven, a port in the storm, and a place of rest for all, accepting every individual with the sincere love and compassion of Christ. There is special emphasize on expression, communication, compassion, acceptance, and anything that furthers the cause of Christ.
My inspiration and motivation for, The Messianic Refuge, is drawn from a long line of abandonment, betrayal, pain, and rejection. Since I was a child, I was always "different." It was never something I strived to be, it just was always something I was from the INSIDE out. I've spent an entire life time being misunderstood, a true misfit from the normal society, and endlessly used for my selflessness. I am a Christian, a blood bought child of God, and my one True Best Friend has always been my Saviour, Jesus Christ. My gracious Father God enlightened me to the Truth, THERE ARE NO MISFITS IN HEAVEN!!!
The Messianic Refuge, is the result of my own quest to find a place of acceptance. To find a place where Christians can unite in support and fellowship, shining with the sincere compassion and love of Christ Jesus; and a place where unbelievers can be exposed to the true love of Christ, without judgement, have their questions answered, and be unconditionally accepted. I want TMR (The Messianic Refuge) to be a refuge for everyone. A place where everyone will be accepted, unconditionally loved, free from judgement, and treated with respect. I want TMR to be a safe place.
I have alot of experience from both sides of the fence. I am the Christian who doesn't fit in wih the world, because I've been called out of it by GOD. I am the Christian who has been rejected by other Christians, no matter how hard I tried to be their friend. I am the Christian who has been persecuted by the diversity of many. I am the Christian who has seen unbelievers turned off to the truth of Christ because of the sinfulness of man. I am the Christian who has seen the elect stray into satanism. And it is for everyone who has every felt this way, or seen these things that I built this site for. I want there to be a place where unbelievers can see Christianity is not hypocrisy; that true Christianity is a belief in a compassionate Saviour, who does not judge, but loves instead. I want the world to see that true Christians live and shine with love of Christ, JOHN 13:35 "Your love for one another will prove to the world that you are my disciples," not judgements, damnations, and condemnations. I want believers of all walks of life, the gothic angels, the Christian Misfits, the outcast, the punks, the metalheads, and every other Christian to have a place where they are accepted and loved for who they are, without judgement, as well.
We can make a difference, and turn this world around. Love does move mountains; for God has commanded us to love, and if you have faith enough and tell this mountain to move, it must do so. Be Blessed by God in all that you do, and let compassion rule your heart.
Love always in Jesus Precious Name,
"The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble."
"Then JESUS said, 'Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest."
"For God so loved the world that HE gave HIS only SON, so that everyone who believes in HIM will not perish but have eternal life."+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++ The Messianic Refuge is meant to be an interactive experience of expression, communications, prayer, support, encouragement, wisdom, inspiration, and knowledge.

The LORD is my light and my salvation-so why should I be afraid? The LORD protects me from danger-so why should I tremble?
When evil people come to destroy me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will know no fear. Even if they attack me, I remain confident.
The one thing I ask of the Lord-the thing I seek the most-is to live in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, delighting in the LORD's perfections and meditating in HIS temple. For HE will conceal me when troubles come; he will hide me in HIS sanctuary. HE will place me out of reach on a high rock. Then I will hold my head up high, above my enemies who surround me. At HIS Tabernacle I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy, singing and praising the LORD with music.
Listen to my pleading, O LORD. Be merciful and answer me! My heart has heard You say, "Come and talk with ME." And my heart responds, "LORD, I am coming." Do not hide Yourself from me. Do not reject your servant in anger. You have always been my helper. Don't leave me now; don't abandon me, O GOD of my Salvation! Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.
Teach me how to live, O LORD. Lead me along the path of honesty, for my enemies are waiting for me to fall. Do not let me fall into their hands. For they accuse me of things I've never done and breathe out violence against me. Yet I am confident that I will see the LORD's goodness while I am here in the land of the living.
Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ +++
