I, Daniel, understood from the Scriptures. . . . So I turned to the Lord God and pleaded with him in prayer and petition. Daniel 9:2-3 A family’s prayer time ended with a surprising announcement one morning. As soon as Dad said, “Amen,” five-year-old Kaitlyn proclaimed, “And I prayed for Logan, because he had his eyes open during prayer.” I’m pretty […]

Our whole being is dried up; there is nothing at all except this manna before our eyes! —Numbers 11:6 Many of our recurring complaints focus not on what we don’t have, but on what we do have and find uninteresting. Whether it’s our work, our church, our house, or our spouse, boredom grumbles that it’s not what we want or […]

Most Americans are partying instead of Preparing

on March 7, 2021, 6:00 AM / in Opinion, Religion

Recently one of the pastors I listen to each day brought up the Trojan Horse story – related to how so many denominations have allowed false teachers into their denominations.  It really caught my attention as I immediately connected it to the situation here in America today, to the ENEMIES WITHIN, and how we let that Trojan Horse enter our […]

Those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary. —1 Corinthians 12:22 Many years ago an accomplished organist was giving a concert.

The Plantings Of Grace

on March 5, 2021, 6:00 AM / in Religion

Instead of the thorn shall come up the cypress tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree. —Isaiah 55:13 Today’s text states that God causes the cypress tree and the myrtle tree to flourish where once thorns and briers encumbered the ground.

By  Rob Pue “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?  And what communion hath light with darkness?  And what concord hath Christ with Belial?  Or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? “And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?  For ye are the temple of the living God; […]

The Final Battle

on March 4, 2021, 6:00 AM / in Religion

There are many folks who regularly attend the meetings of Christians Anonymous.  I call them Professing Christians as opposed to CONFESSING CHRISTians.  Wearing a cross around your neck for all to see does not provide SALVATION to the wearer.  Salvation is only for those who sincerely ask Jesus Christ into their hearts and are Born Again. It matters not how […]

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer . . . let your requests be made known to God. —Philippians 4:6 You may have played the game when you were a child.

The Lord himself goes before you. Deuteronomy 31:8 While I was clearing out the garden in preparation for spring planting, I pulled up a large clump of winter weeds . . . and leapt into the air! A venomous copperhead snake lay hidden in the undergrowth just below my hand—an inch lower and I would have grabbed it by mistake. I […]

Let us run . . . , looking unto Jesus. —Hebrews 12:1-2 Let’s see. What is the crisis of the day? It could be terrorism and its random threat.

Safe and Still

on March 2, 2021, 6:26 AM / in Religion

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Psalm 91:1 As a full-of-energy preschooler, my son Xavier avoided afternoon quiet time. Being still often resulted in an unwanted, though much-needed, nap. So, he’d wiggle in his seat, slide off the sofa, scoot across the hardwood floor, and even roll across the […]
