AUTHOR and FINISHER…MESSIAH Part Six

The Compromising Church   In this critical hour of history, one thing that is sadly missing in many churches today is a message of real spiritual substance.

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.
