Suddenly[823. atomos], in a moment, an instant, a flash, the blink of an eye, the twinkling of an eye, faster than an eye can blink, a split second, we will be changed, we will be transformed, for our mortal, decaying, dying, perishable, corruptible bodies must put on immortal, imperishable, incorruptible, indestructible bodies that cannot decay, bodies that will never die, bodies that will live forever. (1 Corinthians 15:52-53) And, so shall we ever be with the Lord. (1 Thessalonians 4:17) Continue reading In the twinkling of an eye … we will be changed
1) Prayers are hindered by lack of love All the virtue that is saving, and that distinguishes true Christians from others, is summed up in Christian love. When that love is missing or corrupted, then our prayers are hindered. Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full–pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” (Luke 6:38) Continue reading 10 Ways Prayers are Hindered (#5 is Shocking)
Based on the best selling book The Case For Christ, this movie reveals the story behind the search for truth. A powerful journey within a beautiful love story. This should resonate with everyone who has ever wondered about Christianity. It is a great opportunity to “Frangelize” — evangelize to friends and family. The Case For Christ by Lee Strobel — Is there credible evidence that Jesus of Nazareth really is the Son of God? Retracing his own spiritual journey from atheism to Continue reading The Case for Christ by Lee Strobel
The Bible teaches there are only 2 religions, which are grace and debt (Romans 4). Grace is the undeserved goodness of God offered to everyone who believes, it cannot be of works. Debt is owed by God because of good works, it cannot be of faith. These 2 religions are in stark contrast to each other. Grace teaches there is nothing you can do to earn salvation. Debt teaches you have to do everything to earn salvation. They cannot be Continue reading The 2 religions of the world as illustrated by Invictus versus My Captain
Many amateur Bible students and cult-like groups have seized on the title of Jesus Christ as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah to justify their angry, aggressive, warlike doctrine and behavior. This is the opposite of the truth. I have been meditating on this subject for several years and have finally decided it is time to write this post. Please pray for me to be careful to let the Holy Spirit guide me to be accurate. Please pray that Continue reading Jesus Christ: The Lamb of God versus the Lion of the Tribe of Judah
Does the Bible prophesy or deny aliens? The consistent message of sin, judgment, death, sacrifice, salvation, redemption, and life in the Bible has been given for thousands of years from Adam & Eve until today and from now on to forever. This message records the history of mankind. This message records the creation of the Earth. This message describes Adam & Eve’s sin in the garden of Eden. This message prophecies God’s promise of a redeemer to them. This message Continue reading What does the Bible say about aliens?
Now at the intersection of three lifelines: the scriptures point to Jesus Christ (John 5:39), the Son of God, the great I AM (Exodus 3:14) who is the root and offspring of the Patriarch King David through whom the savior has come to rescue you. It always has been about you, it always is about you, and it always will be about you.
“Knocking on the door” is a nearly universal request for entrance. The verb “to knock” is an active action, not a passive position, like waiting around for you to come outside. The verb “to knock” is a respectful request, not a fearful force, like breaking down the door and barging in. This request for entrance into the center of your life is part of the universal call of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Surely you agree that all one must do in order to be saved is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31) But, of course, this is not just a mental assent to the fact that Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day.
