Keeping the Sabbath

Recently, a number of books, articles and videos have been published that discuss the Sabbath’s place in the life of a Born-again Christian. The books and tapes that I was shown all take a very one-sided stand and do not discuss the New Testament’s view of the Sabbath at all. The basic premise that these…

Spiritual Stewardship

We’ve all heard the word “Stewardship” linked with the word “Money” in a Christian setting, and most of us understand that the money that we have has been given to us by our Father in heaven.

Something to Consider

Christians are often compared to sheep in God’s word, but just how similar are sheep and Christians, anyway? If we look beyond their docile nature, food value, and the fact that they grow really great raw material for sweaters and suits, they have some other unique qualities that are worth discussing.

God Loves A Giver

Wednesday of last week, a disheveled man came to our church and started wandering the halls. One of our men intercepted him in the hall and took him to meet our assistant Pastor. He then returned with the man in tow and asked several of us to pray for his needs. The four of us…

It’s Not About Me

The Lord has just done another work in me. As many of us do, I constantly pray that He will show me His ways. This morning, in answer to that prayer, He gave me some insight into how I have to change my behavior so I can be in line with Him. A sudden awareness…

Innocent Blood

In my last article, I stated my feelings regarding the impending judgement against the US and other countries although I didn’t name them. Since then I have been bombarded with Spiritual reinforcement through God’s word, other pastors, a book and a video. All of the pieces fit neatly together providing confirmation. This article is based…

The Truth of The Word

There are three portions of scripture that I believe should be forever linked together in our minds, forming a complete and powerful thought. Some readers will have already seen them together. The scriptures are: Hebrews 4:12, Second Timothy 3:16-17 and Second Timothy 2:15. Here they are spliced together: ‘For the word of God is quick…
