D.E.A.D!

The major focus in so much of what is called Christianity today (The magazine is indeed a correct representative of Christianity Today) is focused on me, myself, and I, rather than on Christ Jesus.  One of the most popular teachers / authors is Joel Osteen, whose bestselling book, “Your Best Life Now” continues to be ...

Satan vs. God

After the temptation in the garden of Eden and the fall of mankind into sin, you have this fascinating back-and-forth in a spiritual warfare between God and Satan.

The Kingdom Offer & Conditional Wrath

Question: I’ve done some looking at the idea that Peter was offering the kingdom to Israel at Acts 3: 19-21. As I read this, I think if anywhere there was an offer of the kingdom, it would be here, but I’m still not sure that is what is being offered. Peter does say that God ...

The WORD

I wanted to try something a little different with this article. I have recently began learning how to create videos with the goal of using them as a tool for sharing the Word of God. I recently completed my first one entitled “The WORD”. I used stock footage and music in an effort to convey ...

Character and the Believer

People often imagine that God is manipulating circumstances in their life to mature, or direct them. God doesn’t use circumstances to create character in the life of believers – He uses the life of His Son in the believer to accomplish this (see Galatians 2:20; Romans 5:1-5; Romans 8:6-11). Notice in Romans 5 it says ...

7 Principles of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is a timeless principle across all ages. You might remember the story of Esau forgiving Jacob after he stole his birthright.

Jacob Have I Loved

Text: Romans 9:9-13 It is important to note, by way of context, that Romans 9 through 11 deals with the spiritual condition of unbelieving Israel, who had rejected their Messiah.
