An unsound state of the body; weakness; feebleness.
Defect; imperfection; weakness.
“A friend should bear a friend's infirmities.”Webster.”
In this life we are surrounded by many infirmities, not only of the body but with the spirit also.
We are made strong by our acceptance of our limitations and our instability.
No one man knows all about the scriptures, if so then that man would be perfect, and as we know, there is none perfect, no, not one.… Continue

If Tomorrow Never Comes.
If Tomorrow Never Comes, will the Lord remember how much I loved Him, how much I have depended upon Him?
If Tomorrow Never Comes, will the Lord remember the pain I have suffered in the name of His Son, how much trials, tribulations, and temptations that I have went threw?
If Tomorrow Never Comes, will the Lord remember the time of my salvation, my works for the gospel; will He remember the times I spent crying for His presence, will He… Continue

It is said that if you laugh the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone. Jesus told us of these days to come, a world in turmoil, a world of greed and intolerance for the righteous believers in Christ.
We are a people set apart from the rest of the world.
We will not be forsaken in our time of need.
Our bellies shall be filled, our backs shall be clothed and our spirit lifted. In the time of fire and brimstone, we shall be covered by His… Continue

“Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, (“Verily, verily,.” (Of a truth), signifying that what ever Jesus was stating was the absolute truth.)
“The Son can do nothing of himself,(This stating that Jesus could do nothing without the Fathers power and blessings.) but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. (We also can only do what we have seen Jesus do, as He,… Continue

A Confederacy of Evil.
(“Thou shouldest not have entered into the gate.”)
As the heathen rage over the land and people, of Israel, we look at the prophecy's of the Lord concerning the end days and Israel.
We have seen great persecution of Israel sense 1945, and it continues today. Many say that the land that Israel sits upon belongs to others, the Palestinians, and the Islamic Nations that surround her, but this is all misguided… Continue

But if the watchman sees the sword coming.
There are many today that are arguing that, the Christian religion has taken on the part of the aggressor, and not the taim religion, that many believe it is. Christianity has become the most hated religion in the world second only to Judaism. The Jews and Christians are intertwined together, one cannot be separated from the other, for we are both brothers and sisters in Christ, we as believers in Jesus as the Messiah, and the Jews, waiting… Continue

The Fall of Gold Prices.
The Bible tells us that in the end days gold and silver prices shall drop to the point that they are worthless materials. What would cause such a drastic change in these values where by all financial institutions use them as an indicator of what paper currency is worth?
I have noticed a great assurgence in the buying and selling of Gold and silver, but just as the diamond prices are regulated by a few, Gold and silver is also regulated to a certain… Continue

Vanity of the sinner.
“For he knoweth not that which shall be: for who can tell him when it shall be?
There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.”
Death comes to all the wicked and the righteous. As we look threw Ecclesiastes we see that this date of our demise is… Continue

Dear Lord, we know that those that hasten to be by your side, know and the end is near. We know Lord that your name shall last forever.
The days are growing shorter, and the end is near.
Please keep your children safe, with power in the Holy Ghost, with faith, hope, and endurance, for the things that will be coming down upon this earth.
Let every creature that has breath, praise you for your excellent greatness, for as your word states;
"Many shall be purified, and… Continue

To Keep Them Alive in Famine.
'To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine." "They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied."
There are two types of famine in this world today, the first a famine for food and the second a famine for the word of God. Many countries are seeking aid from the richer countries to help them in their need for food, but this is not the cause of this type of famine.… Continue

Is Jesus God?
Many are asking this question, trying to find an answer.
Some say yes, some say no, and some are not sure. So then how can we find out who this Great Messiah is, God or Christ? First lets look at a little contention in the preaching of the Gospel. Many Churches today, and in the past, are preaching Jesus only, some God only and even some, God and Jesus only, without the Holy Spirit. All three of these are wrong. We shall show you why.
In Matthew 29, We… Continue

Bang, Bang,Your Dead.
Preaching the Gospel is an exciting adventure into the past, present and future. Many believe that humanity will continue at its present rate and eventually come together in peace and love. I’m sorry to say that this is just another lie from the father of all lies, Satan. Man is destined to die, no matter what, age, race, color, weather they be rich or poor. Death will not be denighed. As a child, I… Continue

Hope, Enduring, and Sustained.
The Hope that believers have is enduring, and sustained, by our trust in the Lord.
The hope that lies within us is, the hope of a resurrection from the dead, being promised by Jesus. We believe in hope because we are told that, the same spirit that raised Jesus from the dead shall also quicken our mortal bodies.
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken… Continue

Men and The Bible. pt.2.
Their Responsibility to his Wife.
If the men of today would read and understand the scriptures, we would see less spousial abuse, for a woman was not put into this life to be beat upon or abused, this action constitutes sin.
Let us read a little and understand the importance of a wife among men.
"And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?"

"I hold these truths to be self evident."
"Verily, verily, I say unto thee, We speak that we do know, and testify that we have seen; and ye receive not our witness."
We, as believers in Christ have seen, heard, and have witnessed many things, that this world will not believe.
Jesus testified of a truth that was well known to Him. He came from the Father and to the Father He returned. All ministers must also testify of the things that were made known to… Continue

Belief; the assent of the mind to the truth of what is declared by another, resting on his authority and veracity, without other evidence; the judgment that what another states or testifies is the truth.
We, who believe in God, have no need of physical proof, for His Spirit dwells within us. We see things that others can not see, hear things that others can not hear, and speak things that can only come from the Holy Spirit of… Continue

The quality of an action which renders it good; the conformity of an act to the divine law, or to the principles of rectitude. This conformity implies that the act must be performed by a free agent, and from a motive of obedience to the divine will. This is the strict theological and scriptural sense of morality.
Morality cannot be forced on any one, this is contrary to scripture. Mankind has a choice, to live a moral life, or to ignore just, and moral ways, to become… Continue

The Significance of Jesus Christ.
As the breakaway Presbyterian Churches accept homosexuality as a good life style, they are also considering the Significance of Jesus Christ and His word.
As far as prophecy goes, is this significant, or a look into the future of all churches?
This is not a message about homosexuality, but rather a study on the end of the righteousness of many churches.
First we must ask ourselves a few questions and find… Continue
