The Coming of the Lord

While most Christians believe the that Lord will return, the debate of how and when it will happen is not settled. Views vary, each with their own Scriptural interpretation. The Bible does not give us a clear outline in a single passage to explain this event, or events, as it appears to be, so we […]

The Imminence of the Lord’s Return

More and more Christians begin to talk about the last days, prophecies about to be fulfilled, the rapture, the tribulation, and the Lord’s glorious return. Questions abound, various points of view are put forward, yet uncertainty remains. The various versions of how the last days will unfold are all supported by good arguments, making it […]

Recognizing Our Times

We have a natural tendency to think that times don’t change, but they do. Next year will not be like this year, just as this year is not like last year. Everything around us is changing all the time because time doesn’t stand still. Challenges arise as time moves on. Smart people know to take […]

Reverence Required

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lifted up, and the train of His robe filled the temple. Above it stood seraphim; each one had six wings: with two he covered his face, with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. And […]

Taking WordWise to Malawi

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen. Matthew 28:19-20 It […]

From tents to buildings

For we know that if our earthly house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens. 2 Corinthians 5:1 The first human body came right out of the dust of the earth. After the fall of Adam the curse that God announced on […]

Becoming Imitators

Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” John 8:31,32 The verses above contain some of the most profound words of Jesus. He spoke to people who believed in Him, […]

“Pray for me”

“Please pray for me.” The Bible teaches us to pray for one another, that we should bear each others’ burdens, and that we should care for one another. We all need prayer at some time in our walk, and we all had someone ask us to pray for them. We believe God answers our prayers. […]

The Wind of the Holy Spirit

Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” John 3:7,8 The new birth is the great theme […]

Sons of God

For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. Galatians 3:26 The first man, Adam, is called a “son of God” because he had no natural parents like we have. He came from God as a direct creation by God. God is Spirit, Jesus said in John 4:24, and because Adam was […]
