“5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down; for it is written, ‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and ‘On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.’” 7 Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘Do not…"Temptation: Do Not Put the Lord your God to the Test"
“If God is your King you are a Queen”"Good News: Troubles Trials and Tribulations are Temporary"
“Then the king asked her, ‘What do you want, Queen Esther? What is your request? I will give it to you, even if it is half the kingdom!’” Esther 5:3 We can learn valuable lessons from godly women mentioned in the bible. Queen Esther is one of those women. She was so much more than a wise, beautiful powerful woman. She was favored by the Lord; set aside to carry out His divine will of…"THE ESSENCE OF QUEEN ESTHER: MORE THAN A PAIR OF BREAST"
Like it or not, teens having sex is here to stay. Although I don’t condone, I understand it and recognize the nature and seriousness of the issue. Additionally, since I like to keep it real, and since I married at 18 and had my first child at almost 19, I know a little about this subject. Kids raising kids is no joke. Abandoning them or ridiculing young people is not the answer either. I was…"Teen Sex: Sin and Saving Our Children"
Sometime between A.D. 60 – A.D. 100 Apostle John wrote to seven church congregations in the Roman province of Asia, known today as (southwestern Turkey) to discuss the spiritual status of the church in addition to their relationship with each other. The seven letters of Revelation are penned to real flocks who labored as Christians, endured, experienced human trials and tribulations inclusive of spiritual divide. At least two of the seven churches targeted in…"Apostle John Seven Letters of Revelation"
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16 My previous experience and common method of bible study involve reading bible scriptures coupled with other bible reference material when a further explanation was desired. Recently I started reading one of my late mom’s bible’s, (The Daily Bible, NIV by Harvest House Publishers), the New International Version), along…"BIBLE STUDY: WHAT WORKS FOR YOU?"
Jesus assured us that He will bring to full completion the work He began. Knowing this, we should acknowledge that personal holiness can only be realized when one incorporates discipline into his or her life for the sole purpose of engaging in the study of becoming more like Jesus. The bible teaches how to be more like Jesus. Leading a spiritually disciplined life leads to a personal holy life. According, to Pastor John Russell, the…"Distinguishing Between Holiness and Hollowness"
The focal point of this writing is to connect the “being” to the “doing” of a Christian life. Additionally, understanding what is required to serve God, and how to grow in Christ so we can glorify Him, throughout our lifetime is addressed. Simply put, “to live a Christian life one must be a Christian, and “being” and “claiming” to be a Christian are two different things. Furthermore, to do good deeds, worthy of Jesus Christ’s…"JESUS CHRIST’S CALL"
A few days ago I starting giving some thought to what kind of work-at-home career I can have when my unemployment runs out in a couple of months. Even though I’ve applied for jobs as required to receive unemployment benefits, nothing’s panning out. So what I’m doing is being pro-active! I’m not waiting until I get that last check. And actually I love blogging, so I’ve even considered making that a career instead of a…"IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE A CHRISTIAN AND A PSYCHIC?"
In my opinion, the church failed youth and elderly people, both populations are negatively affected by this “new school thought” on Christianity. Mature Christians are in many cases a big part of worldly, family and spiritual problems. Many youths find themselves struggling to find their footing because too many mature adults show hypocritical behavior, eventually causing young people to stumble. The days of “do as I say and not as I do” are long…"In My Opinion the Contemporary Church Failed Youth and Elderly People"
