Teachings

Consider the Source

“For a time is coming when people will no longer listen to right teaching. They will follow their own desires and will look for teachers who will tell them whatever they want to hear.” – 2 Tim 4:3 In the book of Titus and throughout the New Testament, the Word of God stresses the close connection…

The Unpopular Message of Jesus

Many people believe Jesus taught love and acceptance. No. He peached repentance and obedience (Matt. 12:50; Luke 8:21; 13:3).  The very first word out of the mouth of Jesus is “Repent,” in Matthew 4:17. Repentance means to turn from our sin, change our ways and follow Jesus. The first thing John the Baptist preached was, “Repent…

Order Out of Chaos

How often have we been convinced about a thing, and then discovered we were in error? Scientists have declared many things to be fact, only to discover they were wrong as they gained more knowledge. In looking at the design of the universe and creation we should recognize that there must be a designer (Rom….

Matthew 7:24-27 (NKJV) Jesus speaking… “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, and it did not fall, for it was founded…

Love Speaks Louder Than Words

As I have shared over the years, prior to the 23 Minutes in Hell experience, I had been a real estate agent for 35 years. During my career, the Lord presented many opportunities to develop my character and observe what was in my heart. Looking back now, I can see that the Lord used this…
