THE GOSPEL OF LUKE – WHEN YOU PRAY, SAY…

WHEN YOU PRAY, SAY… Then He said to them, “When you pray, say, ‘Father, hallowed be your name; your kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. Forgive us our sins for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’” Luke 11:2-4. I wonder how well the disciples understood what Jesus was teaching …Continue reading →

THE GOSPEL OF LUKE – SELECTIVE DEAFNESS

SELECTIVE DEAFNESS “John spoke up, ‘Master, we saw a man using your name to expel demons and we stopped Him because he wasn’t of our group.’  Jesus said, ‘Don’t stop him. If he’s not an enemy, he’s an ally.’ “When it came close to the time for His Ascension, He gathered up His courage and steeled Himself for the journey …Continue reading →

THE BOOK OF ACTS – JOINED TO CHRIST

JOINED TO CHRIST “Putting out from the harbour at Troas, we made a straight run for Samothrace. The next day we tied up at New City and walked from there to Philippi, the main city in that part of Macedonia and, even more importantly, a Roman colony. We lingered there several days. “On the Sabbath we left the city and …Continue reading →

Did You Know (13)?

DID YOU KNOW (13) …That the theory of evolution is a lie? If evolution, and not the Bible is the truth, there are many implications for the human race and many unanswered questions. I cannot raise them all here and I cannot raise them in sequence but let’s get going. Why is there death in the world? From where did …Continue reading →

Did You Know (12)

DID YOU KNOW (12) …That the theory of evolution is one of the biggest lies the devil has ever perpetrated on the human race? Now that will get some of your heckles up!

Did you know (9)?

DID YOU KNOW (9)? …That revelation follows generosity. Yesterday we began to explore the concept that God’s instructions for the way His people were to use their wealth, is not “law” in the sense of a military command. It is His ageless wisdom which helps us to break out of our greed and selfishness to take responsibility for four groups of …Continue reading →

Did You Know (8)?

DID YOU KNOW (8) …That revelation follows generosity. Generosity is one of the major themes of the Bible. Jesus spoke more about money than He did about any other so-called “spiritual” topic such as prayer, faith, or salvation. Why was that? I cannot speak for Him but it seems to me that, since money plays such a major part in …Continue reading →

Did You Know (6)?

DID YOU KNOW (6) …That you choose the measure of your gain or loss. Human beings have this crazy idea that it is okay to have two standards of judgment, one for ourselves which is lenient and another for other people which is based on the standard we set for ourselves but is very strict. We let ourselves off on …Continue reading →

Did You Know (7)

DID YOU KNOW (7) …That God always works through His Word. According to Hebrew thought, God’s Word is a manifestation of Himself in another form. God and His Word are inseparable. He reveals Himself to us through what He has said and what He did and does. However, we cannot know or understands His works unless He reveals their meaning …Continue reading →

Did You Know (5)?

DID YOU KNOW (5) …That Jesus offers us rest, not religion. People, and especially ignorant people, often speak of Christianity as one of the world’s great religions. That is simply not true. Christianity is not a religion; it is a restoration of God’s estranged sons and daughters to fellowship with Himself. If Jesus came to set up a new religion, …Continue reading →
