Jesus taught using many parables or other analogies to get His point across. In this study series we will look at some of them. The first is a discussion with Nicodemus one night where Jesus teaches Him about true salvation, not through a parable, but He uses several analogies. This may be one of the most important and most well known scripture in the Bible.Continue reading “Born Again”
Jesus tells us that He will return. When He does, He will make all things new. One day He will take us home and we who follow Him will be in heaven for all eternity. What is here now will be gone. What is to come will be so much better for those who accept Christ’s gift of eternal salvation. He died for us so that we can be part of His kingdom forever. His desire is that all would turn to Him. Please don’t wait until it is too late. Continue reading “God’s Promise: All Things Will Be New”
With all the things going on the world and this country, I think it is important we see what God’s word says about the last days. But, in this series, I want to focus more on Jesus’ return and how we should be preparing for it. There is so much out there on the signs of the end times and how today’s events point to it. There are a lot of theories and it takes a lot of time to weed through them and discern what may be true. Most of it is someone’s opinions that may make sense, but, do we really know? In this series I will go into a little of that (less on today’s daily events and more on what God’s word says), but you can read Revelation about the seals, trumpets and bowls, Matthew 24, Daniel (especially chapters 9 and 12), Joel, Zechariah, Ezekiel about the signs of things to come as we draw nearer to the end times and the Day of the Lord. This is a time that can be both scary and exciting and I believe it is getting close. I am not sure exactly what direction to go, but I pray the Lord will lead me in this and it will be clear to you and it will be a blessing.
What is the Day of the Lord? What can we expect? What should we be doing? What should we look for? As we study God’s word we can answer these questions and learn together. Continue reading “The Day of the Lord”
As a follower of Jesus Christ, I am grateful for God’s promises. He always keeps His promises and I am especially thankful that He promised me eternal life. He promised that He will never leave me or forsake me. He promised me that the Holy Spirit indwells in me to guide me, convict me and pray for me. He promised to work in me to grow. He promised me understanding of God’s Word. He promised me that He would answer my prayers and provide my needs. As we read through the Bible, it is full of promises from God. There are many words of encouragement for the believer. We can learn of God’s character and who we are in Christ. We can learn how to live. I hope these scriptures give you encouragement this day and I hope you will be strengthened and inspired to follow Him wherever He leads you and to overcome any doubt or distraction, weakness or temptation that comes to you.

“Holy, holy, holy,
Lord God Almighty,
Who was and is and is to come!”…
“You are worthy, O Lord,
To receive glory and honor and power;
For You created all things,
And by Your will they exist and were created.” Revelation 4:8, 11
Who is God? What is His character and attributes? There are scriptures throughout the Bible that describe Him and who He is. For this post, I will use the Book of Revelation to try to share who God is. He is the great, almighty God who is worthy to receive all of our blessings and worship. He has given us everything. He created us and He loves us.
