The Case is Closed!

The Case is Closed!

Romans 8:33 (KJB) Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.

Harsh accusations fly with a vengeance in this world.  Certainly, those who profess to personally know Christ are common targets for finger pointing and condemnation by satan and his band of dark minions.  He loves to poke, pester, and persecute any person who claims to have a fellowship with Christ.  He tries to rattle their thinking and ...

Paul Was Spiritually at Ease

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. (2 Corinthians 4:8-10 KJV)

Trouble looms all around us.  It is easy to lose hope shifting our view to peer intently upon dark storm clouds ...
