The Promise

The Promise

Heaven; a place many people talk about, but relatively few are preparing to go to! It is a place of indescribable beauty, splendor, abundance, and tranquility from the description of its capitol city given in Revelation 21:1-22. In John 1, Jesus tells His disciples (who were probably troubled because of His impending departure from them) […]

Better… (Part 1)

Better… (Part 1)

There is much in the Bible about the better things God has planned for those who love Him. Today we bring to you the first in a six part series of meditations on a few of those things. In the early verses of Hebrews chapter six, the Apostle lays out the case and peril of […]

A Prepared Place

A Prepared Place

In Acts 1:11 Jesus had just been taken up from His followers when two men (we believe angels) brought this re-assurance, “This same Jesus who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” And when He so returns, 1 Thessalonians 4:17 assures us, […]

A Place Prepared

A Place Prepared

In John 14:2-3 Jesus promised “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” This promise receives its richness from the Hebrew marriage customs in which the time […]

Why Pray?

Why Pray?

“I exhort (admonish, urge) first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men” 1 Timothy 2:1. Why is prayer needful, doesn’t God already know the needs, and can’t He move to address them sovereignly? First of all, prayer is a part of our relationship with God, through which […]

God Promises You Rest

God Promises You Rest

God is a God of rest to those who follow after Him. God’s rest is threefold: there is rest for everyday life amidst the turmoil, strife, and difficulties of this present world; there is rest for that spiritual quest that is within us that cries for a relationship with Him; and there is an eternal […]

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 2

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 2

Today we are thinking about the glory of God’s kingdom as revealed in Jesus when He came into the world through human birth. John 1:14 says it like this, “…the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” […]

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 1

Glory In The Kingdom: Part 1

Psalm 145:11 “They [the saints] shall speak of the glory of your kingdom, and talk of Your power.” The word glory (depending on its context) can have an array of definitions; here it speaks of the splendor and copiousness of the manifestation of God in His kingdom. And since presently His kingdom is established in […]

Fellowship In The Kingdom

Fellowship In The Kingdom

King Darius had it right when he said “…His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure to the end” Daniel 6:26. Truths about the kingdom are woven like a cord throughout the Scriptures, so don’t be surprised if from time to time you see kingdom truths come up […]

God Promises To Protect You

God Promises To Protect You

Psalm 91, where Rose’s poetry rhyme for today is based, is a Psalm outlining the safety of abiding in the presence of God. No, it does not promise exemption from the storms and difficulties of life; neither does it promise exemption from the attacks, snares, and solicitations of our enemy, Satan, and his evil forces […]
