     | 395 views

    Who are the faithful? What does it mean to be faithful? Looking at the Biblical message of this great Christmas hymn.

  • When Jesus Is The Adversary

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on May 23, 2017
     | 726 views

    A look at a challenging passage that indicates that when we refuse Jesus as Savior He will become our Adversary at judgment.

    - These verses seem out of place. Why would Jesus end what He was saying here with talk about going to court? It doesn’t really seem to have much to do with the points He’s just made. - When that happens (and it happens at multiple places in the gospels), the temptation is to either presume ...read more

     | 701 views

    A look at how knowing more about God without accepting Him worsens your Judgment Day.

    AN INITIAL CONFUSION: What do the “many blows” mean for a Christian? Answer: This is for non-believers. - Luke 12:47-48. - For me, one of the first places that my mind drifted in thinking about this passage was the idea of purgatory. After all, where else do you get the idea of a believer ...read more

  • Before It’s Too Late

    Contributed by Mark Aarssen on Feb 22, 2017
     | 1,669 views

    We can easily forget the importance of time in our lives and how a single moment in time can change our lives for eternity. We can become overwhelmed by the fast pace of our lives and the world forgetting that the next world is just a breath away.

    Before it’s too Late Luke 12:54-59 New International Version (NIV) 54 He said to the crowd: “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘It’s going to rain,’ and it does. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how ...read more

  • Being Transformed Into Glory Is Not Pleasant, But It Is Necessary.

    Contributed by Gordon Mcculloch on Dec 12, 2016
     | 1,165 views

    We agree that we are being transformed into the likeness of Jesus, but this is not easy, nor is it painless. God therefore will use any means to achieve this, even our own families to agitate and root out an imperfection in us.

    Contributed by Clarence Eisberg on Aug 17, 2016
     | 1,346 views

    The world wants peace... remember the Coca Cola song? Jesus notes that his peace is different ant this text is about "judgment" in regards to his Messiah ship. There is evil in the world... our own selfish nature would desire that we build bigger barns.

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Jun 1, 2016
    based on 4 ratings

    Division: a declaration of how things will be, rather than an imperative of how they should be.

    FIRE! BAPTISM! DISCERNING THIS TIME Luke 12:49-56 There is a measure of dissonance as this passage comes crashing through Jesus’ symphony of peace. “Fire!” begins the Greek of Luke 12:49. “Fire I came to cast into the earth, and what will I if it be already ...read more
