God On The Move

God On The Move

Today from Jeremiah 32:21 Rose introduces another of the prophetic writings God has inspired her with. Keep in mind that when God makes a prophetic statement, proclamation, or promise it is usually contingent on the response of those to whom He has spoken. Yes His word and promise will ultimately be fulfilled but by an […]

The Reward Of Listening

The Reward Of Listening

Throughout the Bible God has promised peace to His people. In Leviticus 26:6 He promised Israel that terrorists, wild beasts, and invading armies would be held at bay, and they would live in peace. In John 14:27 Jesus promised His followers, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you”. Digging deeper into […]

Be Ready

Be Ready

In Matthew 25:1-13 Jesus teaches us about His return, likening it to a Hebrew marriage. The betrothal had been made, then during the engagement period the bride stayed at home with her parents and prepared her trousseau while the groom went to prepare a home for them. Jewish weddings usually took place at night, beginning […]

There Is Hope In God

There Is Hope In God

In a world filled with suffering, disappointments, broken promises, abuse, terrorism, addictions, bullying, immorality, bloodshed, and every other vice and evil, when life’s storms are raging high and it appears that all hope is gone, and we like Paul and those on board a ship with him in a violent storm at sea in Acts […]

The Certainty Of God’s Promises

The Certainty Of God’s Promises

In 2 Corinthians 1:20 we are told, “For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen to the glory of God through us.” When God makes a promise you can rest assured of its fulfillment, whether it be that of blessing for the obedient or judgment for the disobedient. In […]

Faith Or Hope?

Faith Or Hope?

Faith and hope are so intertwined that it may be difficult to separate them. It appears that one cannot operate without the other as its companion; without faith hope has no certainty, without hope faith has no object to believe for, or entity to believe in, no aim, goal, or target if you will. Romans […]

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 […]

Our Confession Of God’s Word

Our Confession Of God’s Word

When beginning his leadership role in Israel, God said to Joshua, “This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night …” (Joshua 1:8). The “law” refers to the precepts or statutes of God, and “depart”, in the Hebrew, means receding by contact, or to […]

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) […]

Promised Rest

Promised Rest

Hebrews 4:9 states “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God”. This verse from the Bible uses as a backdrop the unbelieving Israelites who failed to enter the “promised land” rest in Numbers 14, and it also brings us to view God’s rest following His creation in Genesis 2:1-3. The historical event of […]
