Our mission is to provide support and encouragement to people across the globe while we bring Honor and Glory to God through His son Jesus Christ.
The goal is to win as many souls as possible by lifting up the name of Jesus.
I know that many of us wonder why the righteous suffer while the wicked prosper. The Hebrews of the Old Testament wondered the same thing. They did not know of a time that would come when the righteous in God would be taken up into heaven and live with Him in paradise for eternity. Although it may seem at times that there is no vindication in this world, we have the blessed assurance of spending eternity with Jesus. I believe that when we have a better understanding of this principle, we can find peace in our time of suffering on earth. I urge you, brothers and sisters, to read this, gain understanding about it, and share this knowledge with those whom you know are suffering. In Joshua, God says, "I will never leave you nor forsake you" (Joshua 1:5, NIV). God has a purpose and His plan is above our thoughts and earthly perception. No matter what you may be going through, know that God is in charge and His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts (Isaiah 55…
Inthe era of Postmodernity, no
one facet of the humanized culture has been more accepted, more revered, and
yet has caused more damage than the quest for human control. The human mind
desires to be in control of everything, from creation and sustenance, to
degradation and death. The quest for control has driven many a man to his wits
end and several to an early grave. “Perhaps nowhere is this sense of human
control more evident than in reproductive technologies” (Hollinger p. 96). The influence
and implications for Christian ethics that man’s need for control is having is
the reduction of God as the world’s Sovereign. If one desires to have children
and cannot, they hurry off to a fertility clinic. Likewise, if one is pregnant and
desires not to be, they hurry off to an abortion clinic. No one trusts God’s
will and His plan for their lives. We live in this era of Postmodernity as if God
has somehow lost control over the world and the people in it. A positive
feature to man’s determinat…
John 19:32-35: "The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. But when they came to Jesus and found that he was already dead, they did not break his legs. Instead, one of the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear, bringing a sudden flow of blood and water. The man who saw it has given testimony, and his testimony is true. He knows that he tells the truth, and he testifies so that you also may believe" (NIV).
As part of our decision to remember all that Jesus accomplished on our behalf, as we approach Resurrection Sunday, my family and I discussed this passage of Scripture last night. We wondered why God put this piece of information in the Bible. Was it just to fulfill Scripture? Or, could there be more to it? This passage contains some pretty gross, descriptive language. The writer could have stopped by stating "the soldiers pierced Jesus' side with a spear". Why did he g…
