Use me today!

And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness, in fear, and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Cor 2:1-5

Pastor Rick Russell delivered another powerful message last night. His style, his manner, and his words were quite different from the previous night. Continue reading

The Blood

And he came near and kissed him; and he smelled the smell of his clothing, and blessed him and said: “Surely, the smell of my son is like the smell of a field which the Lord has blessed.” Gen 27:27

Now you see!

Now they came to Jericho. As He went out of Jericho with His disciples and a great multitude, blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, sat by the road begging. And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” Mark 10:46-47

Most people believed Jesus was a Galilean from Nazareth (cf. Matt 21:11). Continue reading

And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many. Matt 27:52-53

This scripture has always held a special interest to me. Continue reading

I want revival! Continue reading

Thank you to my church family!

Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those who labor in the word and doctrine. 1 Tim 5:17

Belief based on Scripture

And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem said, “He has Beelzebub,” and, “By the ruler of the demons He casts out demons.”
So He called them to Himself and said to them in parables: “How can Satan cast out Satan? If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.” Mark 3:22-25

Deceived – Part 3

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Cor 6:9-11

As I said yesterday, so many create their own god. With it comes a belief of right and wrong not agreeing with the word of God. Continue reading
