THE GOOD NEWS!
I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.”Gen. 3:15
There is nothing but a MASSIVE amount of Good News with the first coming of Christ, which we celebrate at Christmas. It is not too early to start talking about this as we come into this Christmas season.
This is a 7-part series to magnify many of the events and the many astounding pieces of what went on around Jesus’ birth. Most of us have not spent time treating this story as the Word of God, meditating on it like we would other verses in the Bible. Continue Reading….
THE HOW TO’S OF FAITH
FAITH PART II
For the earth bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear. Mark 4:28
Faith that gets actual results is not passively dropped into our spirit beings. We are all given a measure of faith, and the same measure of faith, when we are born again. But our faith must be developed. It is a process. Not an overnight sensation. And because God created everything to grow and work by Seed and the Word of God is Seed, our Faith is quickened and energized and made effective by the Word (Gen. 8:22, Luke 8:11a, Rom. 10:17).

THE SHEER IMPORTANCE OF FAITH
And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him. Heb. 11:6a
Faith and Love are the two most important things in the Christian life that we must walk in. I have been teaching and preaching these two things for years now. Growing us up into strong believers, into believing Believers, into manifested sons and daughters of God, that get things done, is my purpose in life. Today we will talk about faith. Part I in this article is WHY is Faith so especially important to God? Continue Reading….
A CHRISTMAS REJOICING
“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Matt. 1:21
Let’s clear up something, before we remember together the reason of Christmas. Jesus was born in a manger and it wasn’t because his family was poor. Caesar Augustus, Roman Emperor, decreed EVERYONE pay taxes. Continue Reading….
GOD’S CHRISTMAS STORY
And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen. (Luke 2:20)
There is nothing but a whole lot of Good News in the Christmas Story. This Story is found primarily in Matthew 1 & 2 and Luke 1 & 2. This was Major, Major, Major. In the story of God and Man, this was the appointed time for God to send His Son and buy Man back. Redemption. Continue Reading….
THE LOVE OF CHRIST JESUS IN ACTION
“This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.” – 1 John 4:17.
Plain as it can be, there is nothing more important in life for the Christian to realize and walk in than the Love of God. Both of the two great commandments are all about Love.
Sounds so basic, doesn’t it. Except, too many Christians don’t realize it and it becomes a distant concept. Our revelation of it can be limited and it’s not in our experience near where it should be.I am not trying to make anyone feel bad. Continue Reading..
THE WORD IS WORKING MIGHTILY IN ME
The Word of God is the most important thing in the Christian’s life -(John 1:1; Rev. 19:13)
That title is not this author speaking just towards himself. This author wants YOU to be saying and declaring this for yourself, for this to be your own personal experience. This can be your actual experience. Continue Reading….
