Fifty Days

The Greek word Pentecost means fiftieth.

Speaking The Power Of God’s Word

As Israel entered the Promised Land, they faced the walled city of Jericho, which looked to be impossible to penetrate and conquer.

The Power Of Love In God’s Word

The written word, the Logos, enjoins us to love each other. As far back as Leviticus 19:18, God said, “you shall love your neighbor as yourself”.

Extreme Praise
