PRAISE AND POWER                   WAIT AND TRUST               September 17, 2018
“Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.” (Psalm 27:14) God tells us to wait on Him. Instead, we often want to do things according to our timing. We live in an “instant generation.” We want it and we want it NOW. We have instant potatoes, instant pudding, microwaves, and e-mail. We are an impatient people, and yet God instructs us...

PRAISE AND POWER               ANSWERING TEMPTATION           August 31, 2018
“Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: …” (James 1:13) God does not tempt. We are never tempted of God. I Corinthians 10:13 tells us more about temptation. “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer [allow] you...

PRAISE AND POWER                        JESUS CHRIST, THE LIFE                   August 25, 2018
One of the great statements Jesus Christ made about himself is found in John 10:10: “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I [Jesus Christ] am come that they [believers] might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” Jesus Christ was and is all about life. Another account records: “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,...

PRAISE AND POWER                       TWO KINDS OF WISDOM                  August 8, 2018
We live in the information age. We can choose from a number of sources to acquire wisdom. Although what is considered in this article focuses on wisdom, it could just as easily be applied to knowledge, learning, believing and practice. There are two kinds of wisdom. “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally [generously], and upbraideth not [without insulting];...

Psalm 107:20 says: “He [God] sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.” God sent His Word out to His people and as they believed that Word, He healed them. There are many sections in the Scriptures which illustrates this truth. One of the great ones related how Jesus spoke God’s Word to a centurion, who believed and received deliverance for one of...

PRAISE AND POWER             GOD’S WORD IN OUR HEART          July 18, 2018
Psalm 119:11 says: “Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” One of the benefits of knowing God’s Word is knowing His will. For the born from above believer, sin is breaking fellowship with God by disobedience to His Word. If we know His Word “by heart” meaning we have memorized God’s Word, that will help us not to break fellowship...

PRAISE AND POWER                          THE CHRISTIAN BASICS                            July 11, 2018
We find the Christian basics listed in Acts. On the day of Pentecost, which followed the ascension of Jesus Christ, believers were first born again and received the new birth gift of holy spirit. Jesus had been with his disciples and had instructed them about many things. On that day they spoke in tongues. Also, other things which they did following that Pentecost, is a direct reflection of instructions which they...

PRAISE AND POWER                                   GOD DELIVERS                                 July 5, 2018
Most of us have never suffered the type of persecution the apostle Paul experienced. However, in some locations around the world, Christians face great peril because the Adversary and unbelievers want to do harm and hinder God’s people. Let’s look at II Corinthians 1:8: “For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure [exceedingly weighted...

PRAISE AND POWER                    ACCORDING TO GOD’S WILL                   June 28, 2018
Often people attempt to determine what God’s will regarding a situation or circumstance may be, The best place to go to find God’s will is His Word. Ephesians 1:5 speaks of God’s will: “Having predestinated us [determined before hand]  unto the adoption of children [sonship]  by Jesus Christ to himself [God], according to the good pleasure of his [God’s] will, …” God chose us in Jesus Christ as sons...

Every year in June, in the USA, we celebrate something called Father’s Day. Most people think of this as a day to recognize earthly fathers like we do for mothers on Mother’s Day in May. It is good to honor parents as Ephesians 6:2, 3 says: “Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;) That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the...

PRAISE AND POWER                      COMPLETE IS COMPLETE            June 11, 2018
At times in our publications we talk about certain Greek words that are found in the manuscripts from which the English versions of the Bible are translated. Most scholars agree that Jesus Christ did not speak Greek. He spoke Aramaic. Because of this the Aramaic manuscripts of the New Testament are significant. In this edition we are going to look at a particular rarely used Aramaic form.
This form is called...

PRAISE AND POWER                          WHAT A GAIN                                  May 31, 2018
Perhaps the greatest offer for personal gain occurred when Jesus Christ was tempted in the wilderness by the devil, this temptation dealt with all the kingdoms of the world as recorded in Matthew 4:8 – 10: "Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding highmountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of theworld, and the glory of them;  And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” He answered the temptation with what God’s Word said....
