    What comes down from the heavens has a big effect on the values of real estate. Take what happened in Stillwater in 1852 for example.

    Nobody in the family but Joseph knew what was going on, and how God had made the salvation of Jacob's family possible by the position God had lead him to possess. Joseph did not need faith at this point, for he had knowledge, but Jacob needed faith, and that is where he was weak.

    If the strong-willed child is the greatest challenge for parents, the strong-willed adult is the greatest challenge for God.

    I have enjoyed war stories and war heroes since I was a small boy watching the news on the movies screen in the local theater. I never realized, however, that not all of the heroes were men.

    Assassins are never heroes in the history of Americans, for they are always those who seek to kill our presidents whom we admire. This is not always the case in other nations. The Jews, for example, have some assassins who are heroes in their history. Two of them are Hakim and Bet Zuri. They were ...read more

    The story of Samson and Delilah have always been fascinating to many, and that is why it is a popular theme for Hollywood to develop. You can't ask for a more appealing theme, for it has love, sex, violence, and all of it revolving around the exciting story of probing for a secret.

    Charles Steinmetz was a puny little man less than five feet tall and a hunchback. He was not very impressive to look at, but he was a giant in intellect.

For about 50 years devotion to God had been decreasing. Ahab was now king in Israel, and he was more wicked than all who had gone before him. He married ...read more
