Earl Allen’s book, Sign of the Star, relates the Suffering Servant to the Christmas story. Allen wrote: “Near the cradle of Bethlehem stands the cross, God’s Christmas tree—you can’t make anything else out of it. The blood of Jesus Christ has been the red ribbon strung from that first coat of skins

Clayton Bell once said: There are two big lies that Satan has been perpetrating ever since the Garden of Eden. The first is that God is mean, vindictive, a spoilsport whose main role in life is to keep us from being fulfilled and happy--when we step out of bounds, he takes delight in making us pay.
Adam and Eve were living the kind of life people can only dream about…
I think that’s the kind of dream that makes a show like “Deal or No Deal” so popular. (In case you haven’t seen it, the TV show has 26 suitcases up on stage … and the Contestant must choose the ONE they think is worth a

What God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit endeavored to do in the Garden of Eden has come full circle.

Misdirection in a football game is fun. Misdirection from Satan is deadly. He has been doing it for thousands of years, from the time in the Garden of Eden when he got Eve to believe that God was holding out on her and Adam, to Exodus when he got the Israelites focused on hating Moses, to the time

Paradise originates from the Persian language which means a beautiful garden but the ideal paradise is the King’s garden. Kings had beautiful gardens with exotic animals you wouldn’t see in that part of the world. It had flowing water and trees and was a place of serenity or peace. And when someone

There are many heresies among us; all of them detract from the eternal truths of God. The most dangerous one is the one we hear as the new theme of political speeches and commencement addresses. This heresy is rooted in academia and thrives in prideful minds. This heresy is very evident in popular
Consider Adam and Eve’s situation in the garden before the fall. So far everything’s perfect. The earth and the inhabitants of that earth have the perfect environment, the perfect provision, the perfect jobs to do, the perfect companionship everything is flawless. So what is going to come along

ON THE ENEMY: BE ENCOURAGED
1. When the devil brings up your past, bring up his future.
2. The man who is fully surrendered to the Lord will never deliberately surrender to the Enemy.

4. The devil is an equal

The home should be the place where our spiritual life and everyday life meet. Recover the sacredness of the family table. Throughout history, mealtime, especially the dinner meal, has been considered a sacred time. Remember when the disciples shared a meal with the risen Christ? It was at the meal
