No Compromise

I read an article in CBN News and I have to share it with you, as a warning, and for encouragement to finish the race that is laid out before us. “A United Methodist Church pastor has caused controversy after stating that Christians can support the marital union of homosexuals without betraying the word of […]

Hosea: Then & Now

Many of the prophesies given to Hosea have been fulfilled. The removal of Israel as a nation and it’s restoration. The removal of Baal from the lips of Jewish people, a name now forgotten among them, and the grafting in of the Gentiles into faith.    Eloquently, Hosea reveals the valley of troubles needed for […]

The Tomb is Empty! Death is defeated!

    Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw the stone [already] removed from the [groove across the entrance of the] tomb.  So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple (John), whom Jesus loved (esteemed), and said […]

In Light of Eternity

I will lift up my eyes to the hills [of Jerusalem]— From where shall my help come?  My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. Jesus emptied Himself for us. Yet, we keep trying to get more. More stuff, more stuff, more stuff… When we take our focus off the world, then […]

Does God Know You?

There are many who claim they know God. Jesus, Himself, said in Matthew 7  “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day [when I judge them], ‘Lord, Lord, have […]

For such a time as this

There is a reason we do not die and immediately go to Heaven when we accept Christ. There is a reason why we, as Believers, are here on this earth, in all this craziness. There is a reason why you have been born into the family you have been born into, why you live where […]
