Good Morning World! Doubt doesn't negate the truth, only our ability to apply it to our lives. That in which we cannot believe, we cannot walk. Believing in temporal, fallible things is the equivalent of unbelief. God's Word is eternal & infallible, everything else is untrustworthy. Friends, family, jobs, markets, health & strength will absolutely fail us, no exceptions. What (Who) do you believe? Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Jealousy & envy are two of the most dangerous emotions on earth. How many people have had their character & reputation damaged or been physically injured or killed by a jealous person? When the spirit of gossip appears, we should ask ourselves what do they have that we want? Do you smile in someone's face & really hate them behind their back? Repent & love them. Have a great day!
For jealousy is the rage of a man: therefore he will not spare in the… Continue

Good Morning World! Romanticizing yesterday will keep us there. There is nothing & no one that is so special that we should fall so in love with a past encounter or experience that we fail to see the beauty of today and promise of tomorrow. We were not the best we were going to be on yesterday. First step: good or bad, let go of the past, it's over. Fall in love with your future. Have a great day!

The Institution of the Lord's Supper.
Q: Do you think that it is general knowledge that Jesus celebrated the Passover Seder? EDB: Readers of the New Testament should not miss this fact in the history of Jesus' Last Supper. We began this talk by quoting the Synoptic Gospels. Mark, as an example, in chapter 14, verse 12, reads:
Now on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, when it was customary to sacrifice the Passover lamb, Jesus' disciples asked Him, "Where do you want… Continue

Good Morning World! Unfortunately, it often takes tribulation to bring about repentance. We are living in what some say is the worse economic crisis in nearly 100 years. Yet, if the gauge for measuring this famine is repentance we still have a very long way to go. Until tribulation hits home, God often remains an afterthought, not a position that He takes very well. Where is He in your life? Have a great day!
And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Matthew… Continue

The festival of Passover calls for early and elaborate preparations to make the Jewish home fitting for the great festival. It is not physical preparedness alone that is required of us, but also spiritual preparedness—for in the life of the Jew the physical and spiritual are closely linked together, especially in the celebration of our Sabbath and festivals.
On Passover we celebrate the liberation of the Jewish people from Egyptian slavery and, together with it, the liberation from,… Continue

Good Morning World! We're born but we're not buried. As long as we live, we will face trials. We don't know how we'll face them. We are snared by our own words. Often the problem that we see in others is the very thing that needs to change in us. If we can recognize another's fault, we are accountable for being able to recognize it in ourselves. See something wrong with someone? Examine yourself. Have a great day!
Judge not, that ye be not judged. Matthew 7:1

Good Morning World! It is a wasted breath that is blown with every fleeting wind of public opinion. Living for the approval of others is like a life spent waiting for the next current to take us out to sea. One wave may take us a little way out, another will come & wash us right back to the beach. We must know what we believe why we believe it & resolve to stand by that truth. What popularity? What do you believe?
When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will… Continue

The Pesach Seder
And if your son asks you in the future, saying, What are the testimonies, and the statutes, and the judgments, that the L-RD our G-d commanded you? You will say to your son, We were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt; and the L-RD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand. The L-RD gave signs and wonders, great and harmful, against Egypt, against Pharaoh, and against all his household, before our eyes: And he brought us out of there to bring us in, to give us the land… Continue

Today is the 10th day of Nissan. On this day, each year the people of God were instructed to secure a lamb without blemish of the first year and bring him into their homes. Also, symbolic of a day that was to come, they were to live with the lamb (symbolically hide it) for four days until the Passover when they were then to present it to the Priest, season it with bitter herbs, roast it and eat it garbed in their best garments but appearing to be ready for departure at all times. As it has been… Continue

Message of Apology from a Kingdom Brunch Viewer 03.24.10: Forsaking all.
AvaGabrielle, I would like to appologise for my comment on your video (attached here) a few weeks ago. I have to explain that I was raised a Jehovah's Witness and after leaving it many years ago, I see how they used that very sermon to milk the members of more money and devotion for itself. I did not mean to come accross as judging you in this way but there are still some things I was taught over those years… Continue

As Christians, we are entering into one of the most life-changing, miracle-working seasons the entire year – the season of Passover, Easter and the Resurrection. The season of Passover—one of the most biblically significant events of the year – is a vital part of our Christian heritage.
Some might say, “But Paula, if Passover is Old Testament, Old Covenant, why should New Testament, New Covenant believers in Christ honor this tradition?” In fact, there are several reasons we should… Continue

Good Morning World! The fullness of time. God works in appointed times. We all have appointed times in our individual lives for certain things to happen. Yet, in the family of God, there are also appointed times during which He declares certain things to be accomplished for His people. If it's important enough to Him to set eternal appointments with us, shouldn't it be important for us to show up for those appointments the right way and on time? We are entering into the final week before… Continue

Good Morning World! Nothing happens by chance. Everything is a result of destiny or reaping a harvest, which can ultimately lead back to destiny. God created this world through time, seasons & eras. With that kind of precision, chance is not possible. Yet, if we don't have access to His plan for our lives it all seems like chance. There's no way to know you without knowing Him. Seek His face today. Have a great day!
And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven… Continue

Good Morning World! It's never too late to live a life of integrity. Mistakes we may have made yesterday can remain there. Today presents a new opportunity to love others as Christ has loved us, which is the beginning of a life of integrity. In love we find honesty, generosity, trust, honor, forgiveness, patience & humility. Each day that we live out those principles, integrity is strengthened. Have a great day!

Good Morning World! Sometimes there's nowhere to go but forward. The person is gone, the job is gone the season has changed and there's no going back. The road ahead looks hard, promising pain, tears and hurt. Yet, it's in those times that we must realize that we must GO THROUGH those seasons. The Word of God often spoke of people girding up their loins and going forth. That means that they mustered up whatever strength they had, faced the certainty of the uncertainty that lie ahead went… Continue

Good Morning World! While we are making plans, God is planning destiny. As we are planning goals for life we often do so with the expectation of success measured in the things that we accumulate or the recognition that we receive. Yet, when we pursue the place whose Builder & Maker is God, we do so with more lasting expectations. We hope to leave a legacy, not just things. What will your legacy say about you?

Good Morning World! It's easy to hope for things that seem to be achievable. Often we put away the things that we think cannot be done, giving up on the dreams that we hold most dear, leaving us emotionally depleted. Yet, we claim to be walking by faith, believing for things that we really know can be accomplished. Want to prove God? Believe Him for the most impossible thing that you can imagine. Have a great day!
For with God nothing shall be impossible. Luke 1:37

Good Morning World! The City lie in ruins, the people were in dire straits. One courageous man with vision stood up and said, "we will rebuild our city and our lives." When the enemy plotted to attack them as they went to work, he told the people, "stand up and fight for your families, your wives, your daughters and your homes!" The men took up their weapons, putting one hand to work to rebuild the City of the Lord, while keeping the other on their weapon ever-ready to go to battle against the… Continue

Good Morning World! There is one thing worse than not walking through the open door of opportunity, being stuck where the door has slammed shut before we walk through. A life of missed opportunities is misery as it leads to more bitterness & regret with each passing day. How do we know when opportunity is knocking? Is the dream bigger than you can imagine? Do you see it in your sleep? Go for it! Have a great day!
