KEEPING POWER

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

God is so faithful.  When I sit and look back over my life and even look at just yesterday, I marvel at how God continues to keep me.  The meaning of keep : preserve, maintain, to watch over and defend> keep us from harm> to take care of> tend> support: to maintain in a good, fitting, or orderly condition.  In this hour,  it is vital that we notice and thank God for keeping us each and everyday.  If God didn't keep us, it would blow our minds what our lives would look like.

In the word God says "I will never leave you nor forsake you."  When Noah was in the ark and it looked as if he was doomed, God kept him. When Lot was in the midst of Sodom and Gomorrah filled with sin and disaster, God kept him. When Joseph was in a pit, God kept him.  Paul on a ship that was about to go under, God kept him.  When Peter denied Jesus and he felt it was over, God kept him. Now I ask,  what are you going through?  Whether you feel it or see it God is keeping you.  You ask, oh really? John 17:15 Jesus prayed for us.  He said "I'm not asking that you take them out of the world, but to "KEEP" them safe from the evil one.  Jesus said that we would have trials and troubles but be of good cheer because He has overcome the world.  I ask you to look back from yesterday and throughout your life and just think about how God has kept and is keeping you.  Take notice and give credit where credit is due which is to the one true God who is the same yesterday, today and forever.

DO YOU WANT THE GLORY?

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

Among those who call themselves Christians, there are disciples and there are the saved and there are the pretenders and the deluded. Jesus made this clear in many of his teachings in His time on earth. Thankfully, anybody in the non disciple ranks can move up by becoming obedient- or as Jesus presented the opportunity, "follow Me ; drop all that encumbers you and follow Me trusting that I will protect you, provide for you and guide you AND take care of all that you abandoned and left undone"

YOU ARE VALUABLE

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

Luke 12:6-7

Are not five sparrows sold for two cents? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God. 7"Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows.

God knows you better than you know yourself.  Do you know the number of hairs on your head?  I am continually humbled by God's love and watchful care over each one of us.  You are not forgotten and the word says do not fear because we are very valuable to God.  He has a plan and a purpose for each one of us and it is His hope that we fulfill that purpose that only you can fulfill.

One True God - Part 2

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

In part 1, we laid out God's process of identifying Himself through a people born of His friend, Abraham, delivered by His servant Moses, giving human origin to His Son, Jesus. Largely rejected, Jesus nonetheless purchased the redemption of that people with His body and blood; a service that was largely ignored by Abraham's descendants. So now, because of the mandate given to the apostle Paul, the good news of the heavenly kingdom coming to earth could be preached to the Gentiles.

One True God - Part 1

Written by Phyllis. Posted in Articles

If there is only one true God, why is there so much activity and propaganda to the contrary? Allah, who is obviously a different person than the Christian God , claims the allegiance of millions and has for centuries. Even the God of the Jews cannot be the Christian God, as He denies the Messiahship of Jesus! And this is just the big three; it would take volumes to account for and describe the hundreds if not thousands of " one true gods" worshipped throughout the earth! If we just narrow our focus to the God of Abraham when Jesus walked the earth as an adult, we begin to understand the plethora of gods. They arise from the imaginations of stubborn humans.
