    Contributed by Richard Tow on Apr 19, 2021

    Prophetic messages on the Internet are abundant posing new challenges as well as possible benefits. Pastors must equip their congregations to test these messages using biblical principles. This series teaches principles for doing that. This message uses lessons from the story in 1 Kings 13.

    Intro Last week we taught on the subject of testing prophecy. How do we know that a dream, a vision, a word that someone is sharing is truly from the Lord?

  • Hindered But Not Hopeless Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Nov 11, 2020
