Don’t say I didn’t warn you: prophetic words of love

As the Lord Jesus drew his ministry on Earth to a close with anticipation of his brutal death, burial, and resurrection, he shared as many important prophecies as he could with his disciples. Why? He discloses the answers as to why in the opening verses of John 16. The context of the chapter is Christ… Continue reading Don’t say I didn’t warn you: prophetic words of love

Bible clues telling us when Jesus was born

Based on the details given in the Bible, we can draw accurate conclusions about when the Lord Jesus Christ was born.

It’s okay to have doubts as long as we look to God for validation

John the Baptist was a great man of God who knew he had a great calling and anointing on his life from the Lord.

Escalating a desire to increase and not decrease

Although the meaning of the Lord's teachings don't change, how we apply his teachings to life's situations can be different. For example, he taught against stealing so the meaning of that will never change, but 100 years ago the idea of not stealing did not apply to electronic piracy since there was no Internet or… Continue reading Escalating a desire to increase and not decrease

I pray not to fall prey: judging good fruit from the bad

In Christian circles, it is easy to get caught up in outward appearances. False prophets and teachers are everywhere in these last days. If there’s a sucker born every minute who will fall for them, we must pray not to become their prey.

Avoiding covetous distractions

I'll admit that there have been a good number of times when I walked into a church gathering to hear from the Lord where I was more focused on how to work out a financial situation in my life for my self-serving benefit. So focused, in fact, that I missed out on the full impact… Continue reading Avoiding covetous distractions

Jesus said-- 6 ...A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. 7 Then… Continue reading The Father’s fair warning from a fruitless fig tree
