  • Trampling The Winepress

    Contributed by T.j. Conwell on Apr 24, 2014

    The authority God has given Jesus Christ to literally (and physically) judge and punish those who turn away from the Father now begins to show. Jesus is no longer the sacrificial lamb, but acts in righteousness with unmerciful authority.

  • Put Down Your Bullhorn Series

    Contributed by Derrick Tuper on Jun 8, 2015

    There were times where Jesus started out a sentence by saying, “I tell you the truth”. It was a declaration of affirmation where he was placing a strong emphasis on what followed. Today we'll look at his use of it in Matt. 6:1-4.

    Contributed by Ron Tuit on Jan 6, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    Many people are "into" restoration of antiques and artifacts, but restoration of human relationships and human beings is much more difficult. Christ not only "restores" but makes sinFULL human beings better than new.

    based on 4 ratings

    Understanding the link between the Word of God, the promises of God and the hand of God.

    One of the ways young children communicate with their parents and other adults before they can talk properly is by using their hands. A child can hold you by the hand and get you to do what he or she wants. For instance, my two year old daughter when she wants to drink water takes me by the hand to ...read more
