  • Praising God in trials

    Praising God in trials

    I have been pondering this question for the last few nights... Should one praise God only when it's going well with you? Or is it equally important while you're not doing so great? Maybe it is even more important to praise Him while you're going through a rough patch... I have been in so much pain lately that it's difficult for me right now. Sleepless nights, lack of appetite and more of those things that pain can do to you. So at night, when my husband Charles is asleep, I tend to think about...

  • Rejoicing Essential part one

    Rejoicing Essential part one

    In order to lay a good foundation for several different points about joy I must first undo a teaching that is just slightly off. Have you ever heard someone say “There is nothing you can do to please God” ? What they really mean is there is no way you can ever earn Heaven. You can never be good enough to be worthy of Heaven. This part is true. You are not good enough and hands down salvation and entrance into Heaven is only through the Cross. But the error is when a Christian, who is not relying...

  • Smokey Bear

    Smokey Bear

    In 1941 the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour in Hawaii. In the spring of the following year a Japanese submarine surfaced off the coast of California and lobbed a number of shells into an oil field near Santa Barbara and immediately adjacent to the Los Padres national forest. Very shortly thereafter, on the back of public concern for the integrity of their forests and national fervour in the wake of that attack upon their homeland, there began a public service advertising campaign promoting fire...

  • The Beam and Nail

    The Beam and Nail

    I recently did a couple of sculptures for my church, Gateway Assembly. One of them was simply 3 hand forged nails that were made into a cross. One large one about 12” tall and 2 smaller ones about 6” long each, crossed over each other and wrapped with wire to form the crossbeam. These were then embedded into a stone. This was a very nice sculpture, although it is something that has been done before in various versions. The other piece was a bit different.. I thought about it quite a bit before ...

  • God: The New Testament Perspective

    God: The New Testament Perspective

    One thing I have observed is that before salvation the question arises, "How far can a man fall before it is impossible for God to save him?" Among those who are saved the same question arises, "How far can a believer fall before it is impossible for God to save him?" The question is always the same just as eternal security is always on the minds of the insecure. What's it going to take to make God angry so that he throws his hands up and leaves? These questions come from an immature, underdevelo...

  • I Don't Even Know His Last Name...

    I Don't Even Know His Last Name...

    My daughter and her husband Tom met him first. My daughter told me one day in May, "You should see what they are doing in the Children's Church room." She went on to say there was a homeless man that had started attending their church and he had volunteered to help her husband brighten up the large room. "He can really paint," she said. My daughter and her husband live next door to us, and I noticed that her husband was going almost every day after work to help the man paint and spruce up t...

  • Miracle.

    Miracle.

    Miracle I must admit, until about 2 months ago, I didn't believe that much in miracles. For everyone else, yeah sure, but for me? Nah! I knew that Daddy answered prayers, as He has done so many times for me, taking away pain and anguish or fear, but a miracle of healing? Not for me! I was dreaming about it sometimes, how it would change my life, and what it would mean to Charles, my husband, if I would heal again. Maybe I'd have to find a job, while I enjoy so much being together with him 24 hour...

  • WHY SIT WE HERE UNTIL WE DIE?

    WHY SIT WE HERE UNTIL WE DIE?

    Tomorrow, About This Time...

    Background for our story

    After the death of King Solomon the promised land was divided into two kingdoms..Judah in the south and Israel to the north. The capital of Israel was Samaria. The prophet Elisha lived in the city of Samaria.

    Elisha and the Enemy King

    It appears that everyone took heed to Elisha -- from the lowest of servants and maids to the kings. (See 2 Kings 5:2-3) God revealed things to Elijah and

  • Bible Study Brief for Matthew 6:5-8

    Bible Study Brief for Matthew 6:5-8

    This passage comes from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount at this point Jesus is giving teachings on proper living, such as how to give alms, how to fast; he is giving teachings on oaths, divorce, adultery, etc. At this point he gives a teaching on how to pray and in the verse after this passage a sample prayer. In this section, concerning how to carry out the commands of God, 6:1-18, Jesus makes comparisons. He compares how one should do something with how the hypocrites perform the same action. In the...

  • How do I become a Christian?

    How do I become a Christian?

    Becoming a Christian is one of the simplest and yet one of the hardest things that anyone can do. It is easy because God does not ask us to do anything. In fact, he even asks us not to do anything - only believe! Perhaps this is what makes it so hard - the fact that it is so easy. Why isn't Christianity like every other religion? Shouldn't we have to try to please God by improving our act? Shouldn't we, at the very least, have to go through some kind of ceremony or join a particular church? No...

  • Another dream combined with more miracles
    by miepie
    This is the sequence to my previous article "Miracles and a dream". I had another dream a few nights ago. It was about Charles and I taking a day's trip on the train. We went all the way down south to see as much of the country as possible. Train cards are available at local stores that are less expensive in the summer and fall. Two people can then travel across the whole country cheaper than the price of a single fair from the train station in winter or spring. I also dreamed that we we...

  • Two spirits, one space
    by Senormac
    When I moved to this area of Oregon from Southern California, I was keenly aware of the different "spirits" that were here. People are friendly but also people are into a lot of weird occult, lifestyle, and earth energy practices. The tree huggers shop at the same organic grocery stores that the Buddists shop at and the Amazonian mystism followers ride their bicycles on the same path as cannabis growers. In the yearly city celebration parade a more eclectic group of folks you will not see, from...

  • A time to pray
    by Graham Hickey
    Is it a time to pray?

    Very often as I journey through the day I hear of groups that are setting up against the Christian faith, or I see other faiths doing things really well. This screams out at me. As a Christian church these things can be missing in our worship and life, and perhaps through highlighting other faiths. Is God is trying to compel us to act? Jesus prayed before he started his earthly ministry (before he was baptised), and before he was arrested to be crucified. ...

  • Freedom
    by brakelite
    Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. (Isaiah 55:6,7) The principles and concepts that under-gird promises such as quoted above echo across the pages of the Holy Bible from the first book, Genesis, to the final pages of Revelation. They reveal a Creator God who, despite being despi...

  • What is Being "Christlike?"
    by Sojourner
    Someone recently asked if remaining silent about things like homosexuality and atheism is not more "Christlike" than speaking out against them--just love them, and be silent about what is displeasing to God. In that regard, we might ask if Jesus Himself--the very embodiment of God's love--was silent about the dangers of hell. Did His message not declare eternal judgment the final estate of those failing to repent and seek after the kingdom of God? Did He not warn His hearers that they would perish...

  • A Pearl of Wisdom
    by Sojourner
    As most people know, pearls, unlike most precious gems formed by geological forces, are the result of a biological process that occurs within various mollusks, including the oyster. Different species of mollusks produce pearls in a wide variety of shapes and colors, varying in beauty and value. A perfectly round pearl with just the right size, color, texture and iridescence is very rare, making such specimens highly prized and valuable. Whether pearls are produced naturally in the wild or met...
