THE “BE” ATTITUDES Matthew 5: 1-12 Part Five

Continued from Part Four… After talking with His disciples about hungering and thirsting for righteousness, Jesus went on to say: Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Verse 7 Like with many of the teachings of Jesus, the way He has taught His followers to live seems totally backward to our way of thinking. Merciful people in today’s […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 3/21/2016

A second century Church father was quoted as saying this: “The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the Church.” From the time that Stephen, the first official Christian martyr, was stoned to death in AD 36, Christians have been laying down their lives for the One who gave His life for them. I believe God has a special […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 12/20/2015

Many times Jesus said things that caused His listeners to wonder if they had heard right. One of these times was when He made this statement: “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.

THE BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 7

Earlier in this study we read a Scripture that undoubtedly offended the people He was teaching, especially the Scribes and Pharisees, more than anything else He said. I would like to take another look at it at this time. It is found in John 6:53-59: Then Jesus said unto them: “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the […]

THE BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 6

We read in Scripture many things that man, in his limited capacity to understand, will find difficult to accept as truth. One of the most common is the birth of Messiah Jesus to a young Jewish virgin named Mary. Many see this as nothing more than a religious fantasy or fairy tale. Others throughout the centuries have said that this […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, 8/10/2015

It has been a bit longer than normal since the last update and there is much to tell. As previous updates clearly recounted, the Muslim month of Ramadan ended with many thousands of people having become followers of Jesus, the true Messiah. Among multitudes of Muslim people today there is a great craving to know the real truth. In the […]

THE BLOOD OF JESUS, Part 4

(Note: All Scriptures are in the New King James Version unless indicated differently) We have come to the place in this study where we will look at how the symbolism of the sacrificial system in the Old Testament is fulfilled in the New Testament in the blood of Jesus. The Old Testament sacrificial system that God set up with the […]

MIDEAST UPDATE, May 25, 2015

As readers of these Mideast Updates will know, the last couple updates brought to our attention difficult events that required serious prayer because only intervention from God would spare Pastor R*****, at the very least, the loss of his legs, and the possibility of death from shrapnel wounds. As you remember, our pastor friend was seriously injured when a bomb […]

WHY JESUS? Part 4, (Final)

There have been hundreds of so-called prophets and false messiahs in the almost 2000 years since Jesus ascended back to the throne of God. All of them eventually die, and NONE of them have ever come back from the dead! Jesus was very specific in His warning for us not to be deceived by any of the many frauds that […]

How To Walk In Intimacy With God, Part 13 (Final)

There is a vast difference between knowing about God, and “knowing” God. Our churches, Bible colleges and seminaries, are full of people who have accumulated a great deal of knowledge “about” God. Some a doctorate in theology and received high marks for their thesis, yet they do not “know” God!  We have evangelists who are in great demand to speak […]
