THE IMPORTANCE OF REPENTANCE We repent by turning away from sin and surrendering our lives to God. Repentance begins with GOD'S calling, HIS opening our minds to correctly understand HIS Word. Then we must pray for HIS help and begin studying the Scriptures to find out what we need to change. We do this by comparing our beliefs, behavior, customs, traditions and thoughts to the Holy Bible. GOD'S Word is the only trustworthy standard by which we can measure our attitudes and behavior. This thorough self-examination process is essential if our repentance is to be genuine, and it may take a ...


WHAT DOES THE LORD GOD REQUIRE OF YOU? In Deuteronomy 10:12-13, Moses said, "And now, Israel, what does the LORD your God require of you, but to fear the LORD your God, to walk in all His ways and to love Him, too serve the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul, and to keep the commandments of the LORD and His statutes which I command you today for your good?" The heading in the New King James Version calls this "The Essence of the Law." We recognize that these words were spoken to the nation of Israel, not to us, and that the law which contained them is NOT God's law for u...

KEYS TO THE KINGDOM The only gospel that JESUS preached, was the gospel of the kingdom of GOD also recorded as the gospel of the kingdom of heaven. The descriptions of the kingdom, as ministered by JESUS, holds significant messages as they minister the character of GOD and the atmosphere of GOD’s sanctuary, these sermons become keys, carefully disguised in parable. PARABLE OF THE SOWER A farmer went out to sow his seed. As he was scattering the seed, some fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some fell on rocky places, where it did not have much soil. It sprang up quickly...

FOR MANY ARE CALLED BUT FEW ARE CHOSEN THE INADEQUACY OF SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS In Jewish society, the parents of the betrothed generally drew up the marriage contract. The bride and groom would meet, perhaps for the first time, when this contract was signed. The couple was considered married at this point, but they would separate until the actual time of the ceremony. The bride would remain with her parents, and the groom would leave to prepare their home. This could take quite a while. When the home was ready, the groom would return for his bride without notice. The marriage ceremony would the...


"Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord:"   - (Deuteronomy 6:4-9) WHO ARE YOU WALKING WITH? Forgetting who we were walking with, often in life we lose our way, no longer living with passion, or deep connection, as we allow distractions to GOD’s perfect will, to become interruptions to our divine connection (Revelation 2:4-5). With this connection severed, we become unable to appreciate the intangible things that really matter, like faithfulness and respect. Many develop deep emotional wounds inside, that contaminate and sabotage efforts to project and sustain godly love. Lacking...

EXAMINE YOURSELF - DO REPROBATE THOUGHTS CONTROL YOU? It is GOD’S gracious method to bear long with sinners, yet HE will not bear always; at length HE will come, and will not spare those who remain obstinate and impenitent. Christ at his crucifixion, appeared as only a weak and helpless man, but his resurrection and life showed his Divine power. So the apostles, how mean and contemptible soever they appeared to the world, yet, as instruments, they manifested the power of GOD. Let them prove their tempers, conduct, and experience, as gold is assayed or proved by the touchstone. If they could...


PASTORS STRUGGLING IN MINISTRY Many (anti-bodies) consider cooperation more like competition.  They worry that joining together with other parts of the body or ministries may cost them church members or donors. 1 Corinthians 12:4-10 reminds us, “Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to an...


HOLINESS IS LOVE'S REFLECTION  “Magic Mirror In My Hand, Who Is The Fairest In The Land?” Throughout the history of humans, in many different cultures, shiny surfaces have been experienced as being numinous. In other words, reflective surfaces have always held a fascination for humans because they seem to have some extraordinary qualities. A mirror symbolizes the threshold between consciousness and the unconscious, and by looking into it, one may look towards the depths of the unconscious. And, the image that a mirror produces is symbolic and can be made sense of in both the unconscio...

CLASSIFIEDS - HOLY WATCHMAN NEEDED! The Blind, Ignorant, Mute, Sinful, and Sleepy, NEED NOT APPLY!!!   The children of GOD have always had many enemies and historically we have maintained thick high walls around the entire kingdom of heaven. Our Watchman are guards, who stand upon the walls of the kingdom and in the towers and lookout upon the land, cautiously examining everything. The Hebrew word for Watchman is ‘tsaphah’ and it has the meaning ‘to lean forward, to peer into the distance; by implication means to observe, behold, spy out, wait for, keep the watch.’ ...


WHAT IS AN ABOMINATION? The words abomination and abominations appear in the New King James Version of the Bible 152 times. When we examine the Greek and Hebrew words translated "abomination" in Scripture, we see that these words have very definite implications. Abomination is used exclusively to describe things that are disgusting, loathsome and absolutely intolerable, things that are unacceptable to God. Christians would do well to take note of what God labels abominations. Such things, be they actions, attitudes or objects, have no place in the life of a follower of Jesus Christ. Some of ...
