Abiding Faith

The purpose of a vine, particularly a grape vine, is to bear fruit; but in order to bear fruit, the branch must stay connected to the vine, as we see in John 15:3, where Jesus uses a vine and its branches to illustrate Himself and our relationship with Him. Now, the question is, how do […]

Resting Faith

Resting Faith

The fourth chapter of the book of Hebrews speaks about entering the place of God’s rest, using as a backdrop the Israelites, to whom He had promised to give the land of Canaan, “a land flowing with milk and honey” (meaning a land of abundant provision and blessings) (Exodus 3:8, 17; 13:5). God had promised […]

Claim God’s Promises

Claim God’s Promises

The Bible says, “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us.” (2 Corinthians 1:20). Yes means yes, and Amen in the New Testament means firm or trustworthy, as when we so often say, “Surely!” or, “So be it!” Brother Peter tells us […]

The Power Of Healing Through God’s Word

“He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions” (Psalm 107:20); healed in the original language means to mend or cure, and delivered means He released, rescued, and/or made an escape out of their pitfalls, which can have a wide range of applications. Perhaps one of the biggest battles we fight […]

Conquering Fear By God’s Word

Conquering Fear By God’s Word

Fear and faith are at opposite ends of the spectrum. As the Bible says, “fear involves torment” (1 John 4:18). The fear we speak of (not to be confused with the awesome, reverential fear called the “fear of the Lord”) is designed by the enemy to bring us under bondage to worry, anxiety, agitation, stress, […]

The Power Of God’s Word (Knowing Christ-Part 1)

We read in Hebrews 4:12, “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword …” and this tells us that the word of God is energetic, active, effective, and working. It is something that is said – the thought, topic, reasoning, motive, and expression – specifically the divine expression […]

Better… (Part 3)

Better… (Part 3)

In what is probably the most well-known “faith” chapter in the Bible, Hebrews 11, we are given a glimpse into the life of Abraham when God called him to leave his homeland to go to another country. By faith he began his journey even though he did not know where he was going, simply following […]

Fear Not

Fear Not

One of the greatest anti-fear verses in the Bible is found in Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” As Abraham’s seed through Christ we have the […]

Have Faith

Have Faith

Faith is unquestionable belief; from a Biblical standpoint it is unquestionable belief in God; it is complete trust and confidence. It is persuasion or credence in the truthfulness, will, and power of God to bring about that which is not perceived by the senses. This faith is a gift from God who “has dealt to […]
