Proof of God Denied

In Acts chapters 3 and 4, we are presented with a complete demonstration of the power of God in the new covenant age – the power of the name, Yeshua Messiah. Peter and John commanded healing to a man born lame, who was now over forty years old. This miracle of healing was beyond dispute […]

Carrying Our Rocks

“In the days of his flesh, Jesus offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears, to him who was able to save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverence.  Although he was a son, he learned obedience through what he suffered. And being made perfect, he became the source […]

How Yeshua Looked

There are no images or specific description of Yeshua, but the Bible tells us something about His countenance. “He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. […]

Helping God Get It Done

If this were possible, has it actually been attempted?  In the Bible there are several examples: ▪ Sarah gave her servant to Abraham has a means of fulfilling God’s promise that he would have descendants. (Gen 16: 1-4). ▪ Moses killed an abusive Egyptian when he joined his Hebrew people’s struggle for freedom considering his […]

Mind Your Own Business

I was an adolescent when I was listening to my Mother and Father commending a practice seen in our friend and pastor. They agreed that he never spoke about a third party and this way avoided gossip, inappropriate disclosure, and presumption.  Somehow, hearing that conversation impacted me deeply, so I decided to implement this practice. […]

Disappointment

This is the most crushing weight of emotion, to be let down, frustrated from things that seem vital.  It could be an appointment or a promise or an event associated with much preparation or anticipation.  There is quite a lot of it about in life.  Regarding property, we take measures to avoid it with warranties […]

Living in Yeshua

“This is how we know that we live in him and he in us: He has given us of his Spirit.” (1 John 4: 13). This is an answer to a commonly asked question, that arises again and again, though we may know it at some level.  David, begged the Lord, “Do not cast me […]

Actual Historical Events

I just clicked open my Bible App and started reading: Peter was arrested and put under the guard of twelve soldiers, bound with two chains, behind a locked iron gate.  An angel appeared and led Peter out of his cell, chains dropped off, guards saw nothing, and the iron gate opened by itself.  I believe […]

Believers Driving Cabs

The skies were sunny amid a light warm breeze as we disembarked our cruise ship.  At port in Roatan we caught a cab to the West End beach.  Our driver was very friendly and shared with us how many believers were on the island in various churches. As we drove by the small houses most […]

That’s Hard to Believe

This is a phrase we have all uttered upon hearing certain tales.  My wife and I have discovered that movies based on true stories are usually our favorites because truth is stranger than fiction.  Men may be particularly interested in hearing and telling stories that make credibility difficult to attain, but I’m not talking about […]

True Confession

The Bible teaches and proves that nothing is impossible with God. (Mark 10:27). Evolutionists believe anything is possible with enough time and chance.  Flying enough flags for long enough will cause the threads of a flag to unravel and re-weave itself into a three-piece suit.  Given enough time a sunken ship will dissolve and rust down […]

The Gift of Discerning of Spirits

“For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish […]

Feelings Show Our Beliefs

  When we examine our feelings, or we cry out in emotion overflowing from feelings of hurt, anguish, disappointment, loss, etc., we are expressing what we believe to be true.  However, all we feel and believe is not necessarily true.  I may feel defeated in my walk with Yeshua, or deserted and ignored because I […]
