The power that human governments have over us were given to them by God. But what happens if these authorities pressure us to obey laws that are contrary to God's law? In the beginning of this new series on the Book of Exodus, we meet two women who face this dilemma and we will learn how they overcame it.
True biblical faith is built on God’s infallible and immutable Word. Our faith in God is simply our response to God’s word. As powerful a spiritual tool as faith can be, God’s Word teaches us that there are a lot of things that could be inimical to it, thereby making it ineffective. This is the focus of today’s post. One of such destroyers of faith is A misunderstanding of what the Bible Teaches about Righteousness:
The Good News for Modern Man rendition of 2 Corinthians 5:21 put it even clearer: “Christ was without sin, but God made him share our sin in order that we, in union with him, might share the RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD”.
The Kingdom of God to which we belong is not meet and drink, but peace, righteousness and joy in the Holy Ghost. What this means is that the Kingdom of God can’t…

Having the opportunity to see different places in this great country, I know there is a God (The World Around Me). How can anyone see majestic mountains and crashing waves and not know there is a creator. Romans 1:20 reminds me, “For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.” I am without excuse to know his name! God has left his Word for us in all that he has created here on Earth so that all would know His Name and His Glory.
My husband and I are once again moving our daughter. As we traveled North to Syracuse, New York, we spend the entire day with a view of majestic mountains and beautiful valleys. Moving through CNY (Central New York), I was amazed…

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. ~~ I Corinthians 2:9 (KJV)
Omniscient is a wonderful word – one of three omni words used to describe our God.
We’ll look at the others later, but today I want to focus on “omniscient.” This is a compound word made up of a prefix meaning “all” and a verb meaning “to know”. So omniscient is “to know all” – everything. Past, present, future, nothing is hidden from God. He knows it all.
He can know it all because He is infinite. With Him there is no beginning and no end. There just IS.
I don’t remember the comic strip – whether Dennis, the Menace, or Family Circus – that had a Christmas panel. The room…

“The Lord will fulfill His purpose for me; your steadfast love, O Lord, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.”Psalm 138: 8
You are a child of the King, His blood flows in you. His DNA is yours, you are above, not below at all.
You have a purpose and a destiny to fulfill for humanity. You do not live unto yourself, you are part of a greater picture.
Realize today that you must be quick to obey.
You must do what you have to do to fulfill your vision and walk in your true identity.
There is no time to delay. There is no time to waste. God is depending on you to respond to the call He has for you.
Your purpose must be fulfilled no matter the cost. Turn away from all sin, get rid of all limiting…

When Jesus ascended into heaven, He gave us His final command, to proclaim His Gospel to all nations. But what does that look like and how do we accomplish such a challenging task? In this final chapter in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus maps out for us how we are to proclaim His Message.
Fear and the pit and the snare
Are upon you, O inhabitant of the earth.
18 And it shall be
That he who flees from the noise of the fear
Shall fall into the pit,
And he who comes up from the midst of the pit
Shall be caught in the snare;
For the windows from on high are open,
And the foundations of the earth are shaken. (Isaiah 24:17-18 NKJV)
This chapter is purely on what happens during the Great Tribulation. I know we talked a little about the tribulation but now I wanna talk about us and the Great Tribulation.
The Book of Revelation, writing of this time of Great Tribulation, makes constant reference to those who dwell on the earth (Revelation 3:10, 6:10, 11:10, 13:12, 13:14). This is in contrast to those who dwell in heaven (Revelation 13:6)……
