I submit this for your review and comments:
1) He makes wise decisions
- Only a man who is able to seek the rich counsel of the Lord for insight can lead his loved ones wisely.
2) He bears the consequences of his mistakes
- His spirit is not crushed by adversity, and he doesn’t blame others for his problems. He simply takes responsibility and finds a solution.
3) A praying man is a powerful man.
- Only through prayer will a man fully know how… Continue

With love in his eyes, Christ looked upon me
And called me to be his bride.
He knew my life had been full of sin,
Yet he refused to be denied.
He carried me into the marriage tent.
The Father waited outside
To recover the sheet that was upon the bed,
Then judgment He would decide.
Blood, He sought as evidence
Of my purity;
If none, eternal death for me
Was a surety.
Christ took a knife and pierced himself,
For me… Continue

Precious memories of my youth
Will surely last forever,
There in the pages of my mind.
You and I together.
Everything we do
Shall be written down.
Love’s first kiss or love’s first heartache
In its pages shall be found.
So let us carefully choose
The actions we will take,
Because what we do today
Are memories we create.

Calvin's words were prophetic, regarding the progression of immodesty among Christian women:
John Calvin (1509-1564)
John Calvin (cited in Men, Women, and Order in the Church: 3 Sermons by John Calvin, by Seth Skolnitzky. Presbyterian Heritage Pub.):
"So if women are thus permitted to have their heads uncovered and to show their hair, they will eventually be allowed to expose their entire breasts
, and they will come to make their exhibitions… Continue

1 John 4:20-21
20 If anyone says, I love God, and hates (detests, abominates) his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, Whom he has not seen.
21 And this command (charge, order, injunction) we have from Him: that he who loves God shall love his brother also.-

There are people who can walk away from you.
And hear me when I tell you this! When people can walk away from you:
let them walk. I don't want you to try to talk another person into staying
with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to see you,
staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.
When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is
never tied to anybody that left.
The bible said that, they came out… Continue

When was the last time your faith took the witness stand? I think about the centurion in Matthew 8:5-13 Capernaum who came to Jesus pleading with him for his servant who was sick of the palsy, grieviously tormented. After he presented his case, Jesus said to him I will come and heal him. The centurion was not a church goer and he had no status as being a member of Jesus disciples,nor did he sat on any boards and certainly wasn't apart of the sanhedrin sect, but he understood one thing, the… Continue

There are countless people that have been laboring for many a season to overcome some of the harsh words that have been spoken over their lives. It has been said that sticks and stones will break my bones, but talking or words will never hurt me. This has been one of the greatest fallacies in history. There are people that are still fighting to overcome some of the negative words that were spoken over their lives back 2 or 3 decades back. The pains of being called fat, ugly, dumb, and any of a… Continue

When we say we walk by "Faith And Not By Sight" do we really mean that? If we saw the path that God has prepared for us, how many of would keep going?
We walk by faith, does not mean we are walking into good times and good things all the time. Sometimes bad things happen in your walk do you stop or do you keep going?
I lost my apartment, I lost my car, I lost my family, friends, I lost everything, I was down to just the clothes on my back and a bag, I kept walking, the… Continue

As the year 2009 began, many of us engaged in a time of fasting and praying, decided to eat nothing but the Word and communion with God. We deliberately walked into the wilderness to formed into overcomers!
Having gone through the wilderness of fast and prayer, where scorpions, serpents and dangerous creatures are, where demons dance in the moonlight, a thirsty and dry place where there is no water, a place devoid of vegetation and hunger abounds, where Satan himself showed up, a… Continue

2 Corinthians 12:9: "And He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness." Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me."
Humility is the genuine acknowledgment of one's weakness, limitation, and inability to please God in any way. But while humility is the recognition of one's weak and helpless condition that makes it impossible for one to please… Continue

Do the righteous go to heaven when they die?
Is heaven the reward of the saved?
I'm not going to Heaven when I die. No one has so far, and the Scriptures are plain that the earth, not Heaven, is the abode of the saved. Notice Matthew 5:5,
"the meek shall inherit the earth";
"the heavens are the LORD'S, but the earth He has given to men";
"no man hath ascended up to Heaven";
and Acts… Continue

Does the New Testament Teach All Ten Commandments?
Did Christ come to do away with or replace the Ten Commandments? Are all Ten Commandments taught and enforced in the New Testament? Did Paul teach them to the Gentiles? What about the book of James?
Most who profess to follow Christ believe that all of the Ten Commandments were abolished by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. They believe that Christ came to “do away” with those “harsh” commandments. Some believe He… Continue
