And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, to the only wise God our Savior, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.  ~ Jude:22-25 ~

Portrait 1984 001 (580x800)

Not born of this country, but shaped by the Founding Fathers and the biblical principles upon which the Constitutional Republic of the United States of America was brought forth. Not a monarchy nor a dictatorship. No religion to be in submission to. No government to be subservient to. A Constitutional Republic with liberty, justice, and freedom for all, where We the People rule. I am neither an annotated citizen, nor an illegal alien. I am totally and completely American. In nature, thought, word and deed. Willing and selfless contributor with God’s blessing, towards the support and defense of this great nation when asked without prompting. Upholder, protector and defender of the Constitution of the United States, so help me God. I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands; one nation under God; indivisible; with liberty and justice for all. Daily I pray a covering over this nation: Our fathers’ God, to thee, author of liberty, to thee we sing. Long may our land be bright with freedom’s Holy light; protect us by thy might, great God, our King!

So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom ~ Psalm 90:12 ~


Prior to the above, I was born and raised in England, graduating engineering college while playing professional soccer. As a young man my yearning to see more of the world took me first to the beautiful country of Switzerland and then on to Jamaica, where I spent two wonderful years with VSO, the English equivalent of America’s Peace Corps. In the years since, I’ve traveled extensively as sportsman, businessman and part-time interested spectator. My life took a dramatic turn in 1996 following an encounter with Jesus Christ and I now try to live as full of a life with Him as I can, with Psalm 90 verse 12 as my moniker – see header above. An avid writer and blogger I have authored America on the Cusp of God’s Grace and the auto-biographical Cloud By Day/Fire By Night. Currently I am working diligently on the two follow-ups to Cloud By Day/Fire By Night, The Revelation and Journey Without End. The father of three sons, I presently reside in the greater Dallas area, splitting my time somewhat intermittently between the United States, Canada and the UK.

  1. Hello Mr. Hurst,
    Having known you back in the mid seventies I can’t begin to tell you how happy I was to hear that you ended up on the same road that I did. God is faithful. Who knew? I just ordered your book and am looking forward to reading it this weekend. God bless,

    • “Angelsunseen” … thanks so much for your note to my website .. it is always a pleasure to hear back from my readers, especially-so from those who can recall events from some 40-years distant! I would be most interested in hearing back from you and on what occasion it was that we became acquainted … God indeed, “moves in mysterious ways His wonders to perform” … Looking forward to your response … Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Amen. Maranatha! .. In Him .. DeeGee .. 😉 ♥

    • Well thank you very much, Joshua … You have a great family name(!) Blessings on you and your family … 😉 <3

  2. FROM” AMERICAN THINKER.COM “Our Significant Insignificance: The Universe and Us”

    Davathm: Wrote a month ago

    ” The physical universe is God’s barrier. I call this life God’s “petri dish”. Jesus Christ taught Us to look beyond this life, to prepare Us for eternity. Weather We spend it in torment or ecstasy is entirely up to Us.

    As far as traveling to the stars, in vessels able to overcome “local physical” limitations; Man may in the future do just that but He will still be in a “universe” created with quantifiable limitations.”

    Mr. Hurst, When you use/plagiarize some one please have the courtesy to at least give citation as to where you got your quote.

    • Excuse me, sir, but there are numerous links posted at the end of any and every articles/reviews/studies that are of compatible information that I use and incorporate into any one of my own studies … Generally there’s either a banner containing the appropriate link to, for instance AT, or FrontPageMag, or PJ Media, American Spectator or any other journal of influence I may link to on a similar topic, or I simply imprint the logo with article attachment within the banner of the publication in question. The fact that some references are not suitably personally cited within the body of content I use, is hardly up to me to find out to whom the original source belongs… I’ve been at this for a number of years now, and I know the difference between ‘research journalism’ and the plagiarism you accuse me of … Best wishes and may you prosper abundantly … Get on with life, it’s a very short tenure .. Peace.

      • Stripping thoughts and conversations from various website comment sections and doctoring them up to call your own for financial gain, is a vile form of flattery and exposes one’s true moral character. Cloaking yourself in the robes of a Christian makes what you do even more despicable.

        Don’t try and preach to me about getting along with my life, when hypocrites like you claim the banner of Christ while living the sin of Avarice. I’ll call out people like you every chance I get you PHONY.

        • Unfortunately, comments are comments, and are generally used to convey a reaction to something already read and published which has been through the plagiarism checker and been given a green light, unlike using an already-published piece without giving it due recognition. Verbal comments heard in the surroundings of public places are very similar … I often overhear certain gems of wisdom, which I then write down or record and preserve for future use … Does that label me a plagiarist? Occasionally I’ll place something like “culled from various comment threads” into a paragraph or two as it warrants, would that make you feel better? … but generally any publisher will concur that comments are open and free game… Sorry if it upsets you, but please accept my apologies in the meantime…

          • Then rest assured that I don’t make any money from my writing other than my books … As you will see around me there are a few carefully-chosen American entreprenurial enterprises who I try to help in any way I can on a royalty basis … Albeit in this day and age for some reason, it’s ever more difficult to get people to “buy American” … President Trump is the champion of Making America Great Again … I’m simply trying to play my part in that endeavor … One thing I’ve learned over my varied lifespan is “never judge a person by his/her cover” .. everyone has a different story to tell, some of which you’d hardly believe… So you can tuck that “making a buck” meme away somewhere in your imagination … Problem solved.

            Take care… Jeremiah 29:11

  3. Hi Dennis G Hurst and hope these words find the not so gentle muse just as what it means. That is pretty open-ended for this ex 1968/69/70’s Washington Post Employee. Much much older now and experience will never keep pace with the power of media then and now! One thing is for sure is the Washington DC Trust Fund LIVES! Dennis the difference is back then this Washington DC Sexual Hush Fund would live in the minds of more decent if that is possible Politicians who would want to expose the over 200 paid in my eyes Bribes from our Treasury Dept to SHUT UP VICTIMS! Right now you have more access to make this Scandal an American game changer for the Family Morals and Values since the Supreme Court Clinton Oral Sex Is Not Sex Ruling which since that day has changed this country’s common decency forever! Please make this stick in all our eyes so all the names and dollars become not a left or right winner but a way to put real Value back in Govt. Trust! Or is the Dennis G Hurst really a GENTLE MUSE, sorry just kidding you are and have made the ride through time now use you experience we will be with you!

    • Thanks for those kind words of wisdom, William, they already resonate … Took me a while when I began to write, but God has been more than kind to me in the interim, especially when he demands for me to ‘dig deep’, always dig deep…

      Blessings to you and yours and may this Not So Gentle Muse continue to follow God’s leading until he’s called home … Even so, come, Lord Jesus. Amen. Maranatha. In Him !!
