But how does that pertain to knowledge? The word omniscience is comprised of two Latin parts meaning “all-knowing.” And why is this important and applicable? […]Read More Is Omniscience Practical?
That is the telling question and the observable fruit. If the answer is “No,” you will die in your sins as of this moment. AM I SAVED OR UNSAVED? There are several examples in the Bible where the Lord Jesus is telling us that a person can have a desire for God, may be trying […]Read More Was I Ever Really Saved? How Can I Know?
Let’s put this mercy in perspective so that we can fully appreciate it and respond to it. First of all, the Bible says in Proverbs 1:7 that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Just the beginning. What is the opposite of wisdom? Folly or, as we would call it today, foolishness. […]Read More Take Hold of it!
With no disrespect or lack of compassion towards the people, victims and families of Boston, the cry of their hearts should not be one of self-reliance, resilience and pride but one of humility and dependence…upon Almighty God.

While I was at work this week and performing a relatively mundane task that didn’t involve much thought, the Holy Spirit guided my mind Heavenward (Philippians 4:8, Colossians 3:1-4). Hallelujah! What He revealed seemed, at first, vague or even perhaps a bit jovial to some. But it is absolutely true and needs to be illuminated […]Read More “BECAUSE OF LOVE”
