26 – ENGAGING THE POWERS OF THE KINGDOM –THE POWER OF THE WORD

26 – ENGAGING THE POWERS OF THE KINGDOM –THE POWER OF THE WORD It is fitting that we should conclude our studies on the powers of the kingdom, at least for a while, with a closer look at what the Bible has to say about itself.

THE BOOK OF ACTS – JESUS, CORNERSTONE

JESUS, CORNERSTONE “With that, Peter,  full of the Holy Spirit, let loose: ‘Rulers and leaders of the people, if we have been brought to trial today for helping a sick man, put under investigation regarding this healing, I’ll be completely frank with you — we have nothing to hide.

WHICH WAY?

Psalm 86:11 has been my prayer since 2008. It’s a prayer and a response. Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth. The rest of the verse is also a prayer and a response.

HONESTY IS THE KEY If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us.

No Darkness In God

NO DARKNESS IN GOD This is the message we have heard from Him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness we lie and do not live by the truth. (1 John 1: 6-7) John did not mess around with …Continue reading →

Jesus Did Not Say That The Truth Will Set You Free

JESUS DID NOT SAY THAT THE TRUTH WILL SET YOU FREE “O yes He did!” you might vehemently protest, and I will just as vehemently protest that He did not, at least that is not what He meant. Let’s read what He said, in context, of course. To the Jews who believed Him, Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my …Continue reading →

A Serious Warning

A SERIOUS WARNING If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God. Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses, …Continue reading →
