  • Yeshua’s Mission In A Few Words

  • True Confession

    Good works have been prepared in advance for believers to do. (Eph. 2:10).  No amount of good works will save a man.  “If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God.  What does… Read More ›

  • Made In The Image Of God

    God is a three-part person, one God of three inseparable, yet distinct parts.  We are made in God’s image, we look like Him, and that image encompasses the trinity. (Gen. 1: 26-27; Gen 5:1; Gen. 9:6).  It might be that… Read More ›

  • God Can Be Inconvenienced

      I have wondered about Yeshua’s reply to His mother, “My hour has not yet come.” (John 2:4). Yes, God is perfect and His timing is perfect, but He is also forbearing, patient, and compassionate.  His forbearance is seen everyday… Read More ›

  • When Yeshua Enters

    As parents we have to discipline our children and it is not a pleasant task, but we know it is necessary, at least generally.  There are times when we can be deceived or mislead to a different conclusion.  As a… Read More ›

  • Repentance

  • Holy Spirit Basics, Part II

    The gift of speaking in tongues is a lesser gift, (1 Cor. 14:5) but it seems to create more debate than any.  Nevertheless scripture says, “…do not forbid speaking in tongues.” (1 Cor. 14:39).  Also, “If anyone speaks in a… Read More ›
