The New Priest

Freepik Image Cassandra Brown stared at the priest who was standing there, praying. She hadn't heard him come in. She had been kneeling in one of the pews, praying the Rosary. He must be new. She had never seen him before and she had been coming to church every Sunday since she moved into the …

An Unlikely Warrior

I have been doing topical Bible Studies and currently, I'm studying about Angels. What fascinating and exciting encounters different people had with angels but the most special ones of all was when they were visited by the Angel of the LORD, the preincarnate Christ. One such experience was Gideon's. Gideon was threshing the wheat in …

Preach the Word

Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching.  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they …

The Abandoned Barn

Love Compels Us

Because we understand our fearful responsibility to the Lord, we work hard to persuade others. God knows we are sincere, and I hope you know this, too.  Are we commending ourselves to you again?

Huldah

It's interesting that when Huldah is mentioned in the Bible, she is introduced first as a prophetess and then as Shallum's wife. Her relationship and ministry to God clearly took precedence over her marriage. It was the same for Deborah who was a judge of Israel and a prophetess (Judges 4:4) Huldah's husband was the …

The Love Challenge

Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God – 1 John 4:7, NKJV Do you find it a challenge to love some people, even those in church? How do you reconcile that with what John exhorts us to do? He tells …
