Fear of Death

Death awaits us all, but we relish life and focus on its blessings. The Earth is synonymous, filled with stunning beauty and renewal each day. However, it will one day be destroyed by fire and with age it is diminishing in splendor. Some people want to blame mankind instead of science’s fourth law of thermodynamics. […]

A Day as a Thousand Years

Scripture says, “By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly. But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” (2 […]

The Intercession of God

“Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat, but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” Luke 22:31-32.  “Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit […]

To Be Remembered

“Then one of the criminals who were hanged blasphemed Him, saying, ‘If You are the Christ, save Yourself and us.’   But the other, answering, rebuked him, saying, ‘Do you not even fear God, seeing you are under the same condemnation?  And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this […]

Fear Not

Psalm 118:6-7 “The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.  What can man do to me?  The Lord is with me; he is my helper.” Psalm 34:4 “I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me.  He freed me from all my fears.” Philippians 4:6-7 “Do not be anxious about anything, but in […]

“And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.  But rather fear him who is able to destroy both soul and body in Hell.” Matthew 10:28. We are not to fear persons who can only kill our temporal body but Christ who has the power over both eternal life and […]
