The Parables of Jesus: Building on Rock and Sand (Part 1)

17 And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases; 18 And they that were vexedContinue reading “The Parables of Jesus: Building on Rock and Sand (Part 1)”

Considering Proverbs 10:13-14

13 In the lips of him that hath understanding wisdom is found: but a rod is for the back of him that is void of understanding. 14 Wise men lay up knowledge: but the mouth of the foolish is near destruction. When I read these verses, I’m thankful that we serve a patient God. How often haveContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:13-14”

The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged

How long has it been since our Lord, Jesus, ascended into heaven? How many men since that time have made judgements concerning the teachings of Jesus and the way a Christian aught to live out their faith? Many men—in Christ there is no male or female, so for simplicity’s sake, I say men—have made judgements.Continue reading “The Judgements We Have Judged Will Be Judged”

What Happens When a Christian Dies and How This Teaching Affects Our View of The Resurrection

What Happens When a Christian Dies? Originally Posted on January 31, 2019 by Amanda at kindlingtruth.com Side note: This article is a good explanation of the resurrection in terms of what we experience as Christians pertaining to the resurrection bodily.

It is the Father’s Good Pleasure to Give You the Kingdom

When we receive from God, either from our brethren or from the Spirit of God, it feels like robbery. We know that we do not deserve it. Sometimes we might feel ashamed, or maybe even a bit afraid when the Lord has given us more than we feel able to be faithful towards. I don’tContinue reading “It is the Father’s Good Pleasure to Give You the Kingdom”

Thankful for Small Ministries

I want to offer some encouragement for small ministries. Whether you have a blog, some other form of online ministry, or a church, I know that being small can be discouraging at times. Yet, it is good. A lot can be accomplished from small ministry, and there are benefits for those who have them. IContinue reading “Thankful for Small Ministries”

The Challenges of Being an Outlier Christian (Part 2)

There are reasons why many believers find it difficult, if not impossible, to find a home church. I have had difficulty also, and I don’t think I will ever find one. I know that it is true that many do not join a church because they do not want to live for the Lord. GoingContinue reading “The Challenges of Being an Outlier Christian (Part 2)”

Considering Proverbs 10:12

12 Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins. When we are full of hatred we will fight one another. Without a doubt. Is this not the curse of Man? “He wounded me so I killed him.” From the jealousy of Cain onward to now, the hatred and envy of man leads to murder. WeContinue reading “Considering Proverbs 10:12”

From the Mouth of Babes: You Can’t Serve God and Money

I want to share something that one of my sons shared with me, because I do believe this to be from the Lord, Jesus. I’ll be the first to admit to feeling appalled when I see people putting their kids on display for their so-called religious encounters. Some seem—based on the content alone–to be highlyContinue reading “From the Mouth of Babes: You Can’t Serve God and Money”
