Putting the Spiritual Cart Before the Horse

Righteousness and judgement are vital and eternally entwined in the perfect character of God. He is both a righteous God as well as a God who must judge sin. Making godly decisions, having a direction based upon God’s commandments and precepts, and offer willing sacrifices are all important as the man and woman of God mature and ... Continue Reading →

A Power Packed Eternal Punch!

God’s Inexhaustible Love Is Always Bigger Than Our Past!
Titus 3:3-7 (KJB) For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another. 4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy ...

Wrestling of Wills
Genesis 32:24 (KJB) And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
Jacob wrestled with a man all night. This was not just any man but a physical manifestation of God.

An amazing Answer to Prayer
Acts 12:15-16 (KJB) And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel. 16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
