Relationship and fellowship

Relationship and fellowship

God is responsible for your relationship with Him. The moment you put your trust in Jesus Christ His Son, you are a fully accepted family member. But you are responsible for your fellowship with God. The Bible says, ‘If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth.’ Stop and think about the last […]

The three Ts

The three Ts

Somebody said, ‘When the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.’ Let’s face it, because of our strong personalities some of us are inclined to use a hammer when a gentler approach would do the job better. If that’s your problem, remember the three Ts: 1) Temper. When you’re upset you’re more likely to make a […]

Pray for God’s favor

Pray for God’s favor

One moment of God’s favor will do more for you than a lifetime of striving. Through the favor of God, Ruth went from being a penniless widow to becoming the wife of Boaz, a wealthy man. It’s what made Esther a queen and positioned her to save the Jewish nation. As you begin to walk in God’s favor, doors of opportunity open, the right people […]

God still has a plan for you

God still has a plan for you

The people of Israel ended up living as slaves in Babylon because they disobeyed God and decided to do their own thing. And they paid a high price for it. They lost their homes, their jobs, their freedom, and their self-respect. Has that happened to you? Well, there’s good news. God says: ‘The plans I have for you…are plans for good and not for disaster, […]

Do You Love God’s Word?

Do You Love God’s Word?

One of the first books to come off the printing press when it was invented was the Bible. And it’s still the world’s best-selling book. An anonymous author has written: ‘It contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the fate of sinners, and the happiness of believers. It is a light to direct you, food to nourish you, and […]

The Bible detailed the original blueprint for shipbuilding. In Genesis, God told Noah to build a 1.5-million-cubic-foot ship and fill it with enough people and animals to repopulate the earth. And the specific dimensions God gave Noah turned out to be significant. In 1609 in Hoorn, Holland, a ship was built in the same proportions and it revolutionized shipbuilding. According to Lloyd’s Register of Shipping […]

Science and the Bible (5)

The Bible addresses the first law of thermodynamics (known as the Law of Conservation of Energy), which states that while energy can be changed from one form to another, it can’t be created or destroyed. This law disproves Sir Fred Hoyle’s ‘steady state’ or ‘continuous creation’ theory, which has been discarded by scientists. Hoyle stated that at points in the universe called ‘Irtrons’, matter (or […]

The Bible talks about the water cycle. ‘All the rivers run into the sea, yet the sea is not full; to the place from which the rivers come, there they return again.’ Every day the Mississippi River dumps approximately 420 billion gallons of water into the Gulf of Mexico. And when you think about the Thames, the Nile, and the Amazon, every day the same […]

The Bible predicted modern telecommunications. Does that sound incredible to you? If so, consider this verse: ‘Can you send out lightnings, that they may go, and say to you, “Here we are!”?’ Fifteen hundred years before Christ, in the book of Job, God said light could be sent, and manifest itself in speech. And along those same lines, did you know that all electromagnetic radiation […]

The Bible tells us the earth is round. ‘It is He who sits above the circle of the earth.’ The word circle comes from a Hebrew word which can also be translated as ‘circuit’. The book of Isaiah was written about seven hundred years before the birth of Christ. That’’s at least three hundred years before Aristotle suggested in his book On the Heavens that […]
