A Testimony

A Testimony

This week we are featuring the testimony of a person that has become very close to us. This testimony brings out in real life the fact that we cooperate with God in bringing about what He does in our life. There are things we cannot conqueror and addictions we cannot break, but God does not […]

A New Thing

A New Thing

When God says, “I will do a new thing” in Isaiah 43:19, He does not mean that the old standards are no longer valid or not to be adhered to. Indeed, in Jeremiah 6:16 He says, “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk […]

God’s Transplant Center

God’s Transplant Center

Rebellion has been at the heart of sin and evil ever since its inception beginning with Satan who rose up against God and was cast down from his position of leadership in the heavenlies (Isaiah 14:12-14); he then incited man, God’s chief creation on earth, to rebel resulting in death and expulsion from the garden […]

His Name Shall Be Called

His Name Shall Be Called

In Isaiah 9:6 we are given five titles describing the character of Jesus. Before we look at these characteristics we ask to whom would He be manifest in these roles? Isaiah said it is “unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given”. Unto who, the Jewish race? Yes, because it was […]

When Jesus Prayed

When Jesus Prayed

In Luke “the Lord said, Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat.” Repetition of a name was considered an expression of love, and I suspect that it would also spark attention to the importance of the message that would follow. Jesus spoke directly to Simon, possibly because […]

God Of Mercy And Restoration

God Of Mercy And Restoration

Jeremiah had been put in prison for proclaiming the word of the Lord (Jeremiah 32:2-3), and he had made it clear, that because of sin, Jerusalem would be overrun and the nation would be carried captive into a foreign land.  This was what some would call “redemptive judgment” because, while it would punish sin, it would […]

Habakkuk’s Secret

Habakkuk’s Secret

The book of Habakkuk begins on a note of despair as the prophet views the conditions around him, and dialogues with God. Then in the middle part of the book God brings him to discover the truth that “the just shall live by his faith” (Habakkuk 2:4). I believe this truth must have revolutionized the […]

The Secret Place

The Secret Place

Just reading causally, you may not recognize the significance and impact that psalm 91 should have upon us. In the first two verses, God is revealed not only by His Jewish National name, LORD (Yehhovaw or Yahwah, meaning Jehovah the self existent one), but also by three other titles; MOST HIGH (Elyone or Elyon showing […]

We Have A Mighty God

We Have A Mighty God

Isaiah 40 transitions from the declarations of judgment against Israel, Judah, and pagan Nations (brought on by sin and disobedience) in the first 39 chapters, to the return of Judah and Israel from captivity, speaking words of comfort and peace, the ultimate of which would be experienced under the reign of Messiah, with the rest […]

We’ve Been Given A Living Hope

We’ve Been Given A Living Hope

In 1 Peter 1:3-7, Peter addresses Christians with praise to “the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope…” Why is it a living hope? First, because it is established in a living person, “…through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from […]
