Jesus is my “treasure” in Heaven and He is my way to Heaven. I can only reach my treasure in Heaven by putting my full and complete trust in Him. It cannot be Christ plus something else. It can only be Christ plus nothing … period.

With every pound of the nail, the leprosy of our sins disappeared. With every drop of his blood our spirits became whiter and cleaner and brighter. When He walked away from the empty tomb we were spiritually new creations with hearts and souls as pure and clean as the day that we were born, amen?
Hello … my name is Joram. I was born and raised in the sleepy little Samaritan town of Shiloh. Never heard of it? I’m not surprised. It’s about a 100 miles south of nowhere. The only people who know about Shiloh are the people like me who live there or the occasional stranger who is lost or ...read more

Why is spiritual birth necessary? God’s Word says that unless a person be born again, they cannot see the Kingdom of God. So, the question before us today is this: How can you tell if you have been spiritually born again from above?

Jesus stands before Pilate. It seems that Jesus is being swept away by the events surrounding Him but the TRUTH is that Jesus is the only one in control. It is Pilate and the Jewish leaders who are being swept up in a battle that they cannot see or control.
Governor Pilate stood on the balcony of the praetorium, his headquarters, and looked down at the mobs milling around in the streets below. “Ugh!” he thought. Jewish pilgrims, priests, vendors, thieves, rebels, beggars, prostitutes … rabble! … all crammed into Jerusalem’s narrow streets … and it ...read more

The three men struggle as they carry their cross beams through the Jerusalem streets. Two of them wear signs around their necks that say “kakourgos” (kaw-coor-gos).

Saul’s conversion into Paul is an example of the fact that no one is too far from God or too far beyond God’s reach or God’s power to save, to transform a person, and give them a new heart … a heart for Him alone.
Today, doctors can literally give you a new heart … well, new to you at least. It once belonged to someone else.
