Turning The World Upside Down

This month, here in the USA, we celebrate our Independence Day. “The Fourth of July” generally has been a day of flags and fireworks and flyovers (and baseball) when we rejoice in the FREEDOM we citizens are supposed to enjoy.

Amidst God’s most specific explanation of the Secret, Ephesians 3:10 says, “His intent was that now, through the church [ekklesia], the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.” The Greek word translated “manifold” means “infinitely diversified,” and this is its only use in Scripture.

The Christian’s True Hope

Gary Lee Corns, one of our TLTF Elders, will teach “The Scope of our Hope.” Looking at God’s Word from a “30,000-foot view of Scripture,” we see that it has ALWAYS been God’s plan to redeem mankind from his foolish mistake of turning his back on God.
