Is Omniscience Practical?

Almighty God has many characteristics that we as humans share such as being alive, compassion, anger, understanding, joy, sadness and others, although He never sins; let’s make that absolutely clear. 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? […]

Take Hold of it!

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. […]

Boston Weak, God Strong!

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.

MERCY: Compassion or forgiveness shown towards someone whom it is within one’s power to punish or harm

Have you ever felt like you’ve done something that you couldn’t be forgiven for? How has that molded your thoughts, actions, character and disposition towards others or even yourself since that time?

“BECAUSE OF LOVE”

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!
