Thought for the day: I hear so many of you complaining or commenting about how dark it's getting in this world, and rightfully so, or even how much Satan is attacking you, how life is the pits, things are getting bad, etc. We all know that God uses trials to draw us closer to Him, and to loosen ...

|Jesus and the Daydream
Friday, May 20th, 2016 9:28pm
Over the years, from time to time, I have spoken to a number of people who've told me of different ways in which the Lord has uniquely interacted with them at various points in their daily life. However, I never expected it to happen to me. At least not until I had one of them happen to myself. ... View More
|Thought for the Day: Forgiveness
Wednesday, April 13th, 2016 4:27pm
Thought for the day: In the same way that true repentance is more than simply saying, "I repent of" or "I turn away from" this sin or that sin, but also involves an actual physical turning away and total abandonment of that sin, true forgiveness requires this two part effor ... View More

|God's Divine Absence of Information
Friday, September 25th, 2015 10:28am
Thought for the day. Have you ever wondered why God tells us about some future events in the bible, but never gives us the details? Why would He tell us, for example, that a wicked king was coming, but never give the who, when, why, what, and where in regards to it? Especially when ... View More
