Valiant for Truth

For most of this year there has been non-stop talk about the “Pandemic” that has gripped much of the world’s population with FEAR. As you may know, FEAR shuts down one’s ability to think clearly and make sound decisions, thus rendering him easily manipulated and controlled. Given the fact that such fear has done far more damage than the virus …

GOD vs GOV

This November 3, we here in the USA will hold a national election, with the Presidential race being perhaps the most polarized, most vitriolic, and most sensational ever. As Christians, we should base our political ideas and involvement upon what the Word of God says. After all, civil government was His idea. Actually, He intended it to be a lot more civil than it is. …

How Do We Love in Truth?

1 John 3:18 says, “Little children, we must not love [only] with word or speech, but with truth and action.” Of course, both words and deeds are part of our Christian witness. It may be our behavior that gets people’s attention, but we must then be able to articulate our faith so that they too can understand the Word and …

“FEAR NOT!”

Dear Freedom Fighter, Greetings in The Name above all names, our Lord Jesus Christ, before whom every knee will one day bow and every person who never did so in this life will acknowledge him as Lord. And, as part of our Hope, we will get to watch that, as well as the judgment and the ultimate death penalty (as …

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. At the bottom line, freedom means the right to live according to God’s purposes. Primarily, these liberties include freedom to …

Did Jesus Come to Unify or to Divide People?

Did Jesus Come to Unify or to Divide People? The answer is… BOTH. And everybody said: “Amen!” No, most would probably say, “HUH? How could that be?” Stay tuned, that is, keep reading. In our “Postmodern” culture today, where TRUTH is no longer considered an absolute, but merely an opinion, those committed to working for God’s Adversary continually do all …

The Darker it Becomes – The Brighter the Light Appears

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 more we get to know our Heavenly …

What is God’s Address?

As you probably know, something unique happened on the particular Pentecost holiday recorded in Acts 2, fifty days after the Jewish Passover. That’s when God chose to birth the ekklesia, the “Body of Christ,” the first human beings ever “born again of incorruptible seed”—permanently! What a celebration that was in God’s Maternity Ward when Jesus’ mother and his disciples were …

Following Our Savior Into Harm’s Way

Dear Companion of Christ, Some destinations are not worth what the journey entails. No doubt you have experienced such disappointment. Perhaps that prompted you to more carefully count the cost of your next sojourn compared to the expected benefits, which are not always guaranteed when you get there. When it comes to following (walking in the steps of) our Lord …

God is Always “In the Moment” With You

Perhaps you’ve heard the saying: “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift; that’s why it’s called the “present.” With all the distractive elements intruding upon our busy lives these days, it is challenging to mentally set them aside and be present, in the moment, even with those you love the most. Jesus Christ is certainly the …
