 Isaiah 66:8 “Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Shall the earth be made to give birth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion was in labor, she gave birth to her children.” This prophecy is three thousand years old and it is remarkable, sobering and altogether awesome. The prophet spoke of the nation of Israel in the latter days of human history. The LORD, through Isaiah, predicted a never before seen event that would take place before all of the world – an event that would start Israel’s prophetic time clock tickingRead More →

John 20:29 “Jesus said to him, ‘Thomas, because you have seen Me, you have believed. Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.’”  This scripture reminds me that faith is a much more common, useful reality of our lives than we often think. There is perhaps nothing that we can engage in or embark upon without the exercising of faith. It is by faith that I believe when I awake in the morning that a fresh start is before me. By faith, I believe that the engine of my car will start when I turn the key. Also, it is by faithRead More →

 Philippians 3:13-14 “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” In Arizona, there is a river whose bed is filled with quicksand. You may walk safely into the riverbed as long as you keep moving forward. The moment you stop though, the treacherous quicksand will begin to pull you down.  How similar the world is to that river. We are encouraged to go forward in our ChristianRead More →

Isaiah 43:19 “For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create streams in the desert.” The human soul requires refreshment, of this I am certain. Each and every one of us has been created in such a way that recreation and relaxation is a key pursuit. I can confess that when I push back from the demands of life and my hectic schedule, I experience a sense of excitement. This excitement is based on several things; the first being that the cycle of demand andRead More →

Believe Ephesians 6:12 “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” How much of the Bible do you believe? Are you somewhat selective as to what is true and what is not? If so, you are a pitiful soul at best. You have no assurance of anything, but doubt and fear. If you do not believe the words of scripture that warn us that we battle against alien forces from a spiritual realm, then you are already deceived and have beenRead More →
