One Word Two Manifestations

One Word Two Manifestations

“Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled (Hebrew stationed, i.e. stands firm) in heaven”, Psalm 119:89. What a wonderful word that we can count on as being sure and steadfast. It is first a cleansing word, “Wherewithal shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed thereto according to thy word”, Psalm 119:9 KJV. […]

On Sowing And Reaping

On Sowing And Reaping

On numerous occasions the Bible speaks of, or alludes to, seed sowing and harvest. Often, especially in the Old Testament, these are connected to promises made by God to His people concerning His blessing upon the harvest from their land. But in His wisdom and foresight there is usually an underlying spiritual concept that applies […]

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 […]

Thankful Delight For God’s Powerful Word

Psalm 119 is largely about the word of God, and its author utilizes several related terms such as law, commandments, precepts, statutes, and judgments, which are employed well over 125 times in this one Psalm alone (in the King James Version)!

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).

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.
