If God Were To Ask You…

If God were to ask you, "Why should I let you into heaven?" What would your answer be? The thought of standing before God brings different responses to different people. Some find the idea terrifying, or at least a bit scary. Others have no fear of appearing before God because they believe that eternal bliss … Continue reading If God Were To Ask You…

Five Red Heifers

What possibly could be the third most significant headline regarding prophecy in roughly two thousand years may have occurred last week. Five red heifers arrived in Israel on Thursday, September 15, 2022. You are probably thinking, "There must be livestock in transport every moment of every day someplace in the world. What makes these five … Continue reading Five Red Heifers

Are There Tears In Heaven?

There are a lot of things that are yet to happen, according to the Bible. Most of the attention is on the rapture, the coming seven-year Tribulation Period, and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. There is little discussion about the events after the Tribulation and the Second Coming. Revelation 20-22 describes the events after … Continue reading Are There Tears In Heaven?

Through The Spirit

Christian, are you dead to sin? Romans 8:13, "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live." A lot is going on in this one verse.  There is a duty prescribed - mortify the deeds of the body. … Continue reading Through The Spirit

The Monster In The Closet

Division shows up everywhere, in marriages, churches, on the job, in politics, and about everywhere else in life. Division can be small - a minor disagreement between two people who eventually decide it is okay to disagree, and nothing ever comes of it. Divisions can also be huge by starting a war that kills millions. … Continue reading The Monster In The Closet

End Times – Really?

Are we in the end times? I reckon the answer may depend more on someone's definition of "end times" than on what is happening in the world. But this column will look at Bible prophecies and current events. In Acts 2, Peter announces the fulfillment of a prophecy from the book of Joel. The prophecy … Continue reading End Times – Really?

Character Transformation

"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." - 2 Corinthians 5:17. It scares me when someone tells me they are a Christian, but there has never been evidence of a change in who they are. Christians are not broken … Continue reading Character Transformation

Feelings VS Faith

Christian, what guides you, your feelings or your beliefs? Christians have told me, "What a Spirit-filled service we had Sunday! I could just feel the Spirit move!" I ask, "Was your faith increased?" Blank stares are the standard response. People will talk to me about a situation in their lives. More often than not, the … Continue reading Feelings VS Faith

It’s The Little Things

There is a man in our church that grew up on a farm. He drove a tractor at age eight. Driving down the road with him is like listening to a farm encyclopedia. Every piece of farm machinery we pass, he talks all about it. There is no doubt that this man knew more about … Continue reading It’s The Little Things
