Revelation three applies to us today for we are rich

been said: “Destiny has two ways of crushing us -- by
refusing our wishes and by fulfilling them.” pdf

in the Word of God. Sermon on worldliness are rare these
days. The new word is secularism pdf
Glory of Motherhood
word, Mother is one of the most beautiful words in any
language. It is one of the first words that we learn
to say as a babe. There is power in this dear word.
I once read the story of a burglar who returned a stolen
watch to the owner because he could not stand to see
on the back of the watch the words, “To my son, from
Mother, on his birthday!” Thank God for what consecrated,
praying, Christian mothers have meant to the world.

study of Eph. 2: 1-10. Three great things I see in this
passage are Man's great need, God's wonderful provision
and Salvation's wondrous result. Ninety two times the
word saved is used in the New Testament. Do we truly
understand God's salvation? pdf
You have Strongholds?

the suffering that God allows to come to our lives? pdf
No matter how much we pray; how much you give, do, serve, or are busy in activities for the Lord, if we are not in His will it avails but very little.

you study the book of Acts you will naturally note the
work of the Holy Spirit. He is spoken of over sixty times
in the Book of Acts. I am afraid that many Christians
are even afraid of the personal and work of the Holy Spirit.
Do you know Him? Do you know the Holy Spirit?
knew that the fiery trial was about to take place. (I
Pet. 1:12) He wanted the entire church family to be prepared
to endure suffering. Suffering. . . that is the norm of
the Christian life. The main subject in I Peter is suffering
-- suffering because of our faith, suffering as a means
of purifying, and suffering in the will of God as a testimony
of God’s grace.
places a premium on the home, and we need to remember
that society cannot rise higher than the home. In fact,
the home is the very foundation of civilization! Many
have a house but they have never built a home. What about
15 gives us three tremendous pictures of the heart of
God, the Father. In these stories we witness the concern
in heaven over every lost person. We have the story of
the lost sheep.... and the lost coin... and the lost son...
the prodigal son who spent all in riotous living who had
left father and home to do as he pleased. But what about
the prodigal's brother? What do we read about him?
learn from the Word of God that all Christians must appear
before the Judgement Seat of Christ that we might receive
a reward for the deeds done in the body, or there we will
suffer the loss of rewards. What does God say about rewards?

that God’s very character is revealed through His providential
workings. God desires that we would see, know, consider,
and understand His greatness, reality, and majesty through
the acts of His providence.
does the Word of God mean when God says... "Where there
is NO vision, the people perish?" See Proverbs 29:18.
What does the word VISION mean?? In Spiritual terminology
to have vision means having "Divine perspective," Divine
wisdom, "Divine insight or illumination," and "vision"
are roughly equivalent terms. The text shows us negatively
how important vision is! An individual's sight depends
on the lens he looks through, his hearing depends upon
the filter he listens through. So, what is the value
the substitutionary vicarious death of Christ scriptural?
Yes! It is entirely in line with all human experience
and historic evidence. All human progress is built upon
sacrifice, upon the lose of human blood, of the price
of life itself.
