  • Fire! Fire! Fire!

    Contributed by Craig Condon on Mar 13, 2015
     | 6,034 views

    God wants for us the fullest, richest and deepest life we can have because he loves us. In return, he expects us to do Christ's work in this place, and in our own generation. In his name and by his power, we are to confront the world of evil.

    Three men died and were waiting to receive entrance through the Pearly Gates. The first man said to St. Peter, "I was a preacher of the gospel, serving faithfully for over 50 years". Peter told him to step aside for further consideration. The second man said, "I was also a preacher of the gospel; I ...read more

  • Before It’s Too Late

    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

    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.

    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.

  • When Jesus Is The Adversary

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on May 19, 2017
     | 2,222 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

    A study of Jesus' teaching that He did not come to bring peace to the earth and how we need to "fire it up" instead of "watering it down."

There is a sense in which the truth of Christ is going to bring fire to the earth. - Fire burns down what already exists. - The ...read more

     | 4,072 views

    As a spiritual people it is important for us to realize the spiritual signs of the times that we are living in. By the time that Jesus arrived the Jews fell into a kind of spiritual numbness that led to complacency. For them it was just another day.

    Before it’s too Late Luke 12:54-59 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.

  • Fire Of God

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Apr 22, 2012
     | 6,622 views

    If the fire of judgment is early kindled in us, we, as Christ, die to sin but live to God.

    Fire is full of symbolic meaning in Scripture. Fire is used as a sign of God’s presence and as a sign of judgment, both of acceptance and rejection. Fire is a sign of theophany, which is just a fancy way of saying a revelation of God, God’s presence. When God made His covenant with ...read more

     | 2,081 views

    We should understand that the fire Jesus wanted on the earth both purifies and activates Christians for mission.

    Twentieth Sunday in Course 2013 Fire on the Earth Fire on the earth, a baptism with which to be baptized, a shameful cross to be endured–those were the destinies that drove Jesus on as He fulfilled the Father’s will. Moreover, in our own ways those are the destinies that beckon us ...read more
