  • Before It’s Too Late

    Contributed by Mark Aarssen on Jun 19, 2018
     | 697 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. And when the south wind blows, you say, ‘It’s going to be hot,’ and it is. Hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of ...read more

  • When Jesus Is The Adversary

    Contributed by Jim Butcher on May 19, 2017
     | 1,146 views

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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

    Jesus is quoted saying, "I came to...divide," and in another place He said, "I came to bring peace." Which is it? What would cause division in families? Division began very quickly after He physically left us. Has this division led to war?

    August 18, 2013 Refine or Destroy A bank robber in Virginia Beach got a nasty surprise when a dye pack designed to mark stolen money exploded in his Fruit-of-the-Looms. The robber apparently stuffed the loot down the front of his pants as he was running out the door. “He was seen ...read more
