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...

PRAISE AND POWER                         ENTER INTO HIS GATES                            June 20, 2018
Psalm 100 is a familiar Scripture passage for many. Verse 1 says: “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all ye lands.” The people of the lands of Israel were to make a joyful noise unto the Lord, and those of all lands everywhere were to do so. This joyful noise included all the Gentile nations. The full understanding of the reason the people of all the lands were to...

PRAISE AND POWER                             OUR FATHER                               June 16, 2018
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....

In Acts 3:6 Peter said to the lame man; “… such as I have give I thee …” What did Peter have. Peter had physical and spiritual wholeness which he had received at the time of the new birth. With the new birth comes the fulfillment of what the remembrance of the bread and wine of communion represent for all Christians. When we observe the remembrance of the broken body...

PRAISE AND POWER                                  DEAD OR ALIVE                              May 16, 2018
Most all of us have heard about what are called “life or death situations.” Often a person has been called upon to make a split-second decision to put themselves in danger in order to save another. Sometimes people don’t act because they fear the possibility of dying. Many people do not realize what Christ has accomplished regarding life and death. Speaking of this in light of Jesus Christ,...

PRAISE AND POWER                         GO TO THE LIGHT                         May 10, 2018
There is a lesson we can learn from insects. At night as soon as a porch light is turned on, insects are drawn to the light. When we walk out of our door at night during the warmer months we are greeted by the buzz of insects that are around the light. We live in a world, which when compared with God’s Word, is full of darkness. At times worldly...

How much do we really trust God? Do we trust Him in the small as well as the big challenges in our lives? Even when tragic events occur whether in our lives or reported on TV and in the newspapers; we can have inner peace because we trust God. He wants to care for us day by day, all day long, just as an earthly father wants to care for...

“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...

In the Bowens’ kitchen, on their refrigerator was a magnet plaque that said, "Father, what can I do for you today?" There is also a song that says, "Good Morning Lord. What can I do for you today? Where can I start to do my part to help someone along the way?"
There is lots of instruction in God’s Word regarding our daily walk with God. To know God's will we...

In Exodus 14 and 15, we find the children of Israel released from captivity in Egypt, and traveling toward the land God had promised them. God was leading them with a pillar of a cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. The Egyptians had hardened their hearts against Israel, and pursued them with an army. As this army was coming upon the impassable Red Sea the children of...

PRAISE AND POWER               RESURRECTION AND SALVATION                March 29, 2018
“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.” (Romans 10:9) This is an important truth for all. Without believing that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead there is no salvation.
Early in his ministry, Jesus preached things concerning the kingdom of God. But at a certain point his preaching...
