In the Hands of Experts

In the Hands of Experts “Don’t put your life in the hands of experts…” (Psalm 146:3, The Message).

The Word Became Flesh

The Word Became Flesh “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14).

Never Under-estimate the Power of a Personal Word from God

Never Under-estimate the Power of a Personal Word from God “With God nothing shall be impossible.” (Luke 1:37) Sometimes important things can be lost in translation.

The Power of Prayer

The Power of Prayer “The weapons we use in our fight are not the world’s weapons but God’s powerful weapons, which we use to destroy strongholds.” (2 Corinthians 10:4, Good New Bible). We have an arsenal not made by human hands, but is stocked full with the powerful weapons fashioned by God Himself. They aren’t for marketing or manipulation of… (more…)

The Purpose of Prayer (Part 2)

The Purpose of Prayer (Part 2) “Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth as in heaven.” (Luke 11:2). Three things happen as we pray. First, which we looked at yesterday, is that we have fellowship with God. The second thing that happens is that we cooperate in bringing God’s Kingdom to Earth. What exactly does this mean? Simply… (more…)
