The Word of God has power, but we need to tap that power in order to fight lust, so here are Bible verses that can help you defeat it when you meet it. Wicked Hearts The Bible teaches that the human heart is wicked, and even after the Spirit comes to live in the believer, there is still a tendency to sin (Rom 7), so even though they still sin, over time, they do sin less thanks to the work… Read more

Sometimes, patience is the last thing you have in this fast-paced, frantic world, so here’s how you can remain patient when everyone else seems to be losing theirs. What is Patience? The dictionary defines patience as: the ability or capacity to remain patient; the state of endurance under difficult circumstances; and/or persevering in the face of delay or provocation without acting upon it. That sounds a lot like Job. In the context of being persecuted for being Christ’s witness, Jesus… Read more

If you love animals, I hope you’ll read what God thinks about animals and the care they should receive. Laws for Animal Care “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Gen 1:1), but later, “God created the great sea creatures and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good” (Gen 1:21). Since what God created was… Read more

Have you ever been betrayed by a close friend or family member? Many of us have, but you’re not alone. Here are several examples about betrayal. Jesus’ Betrayal When David wrote some of the Messianic Psalms, he include in Psalm 41 a prophecy about Jesus Christ’s betrayal, writing, “Even my close friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me” (Psalm 41:9), and exactly as prophesied, the Bible says that Judas “sought an opportunity… Read more

Psalm 103 perfectly captures the essence of God’s fatherly nature. Forgiveness King David must have been feeling blessed, because twice in two verses he says, “Bless the Lord, O my soul” (Psalm 103:1-2), and blessed he was, and so are those who have trusted in Christ. The psalmist reminds us to “forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases” (Psalm 103:2c-3). Through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, David writes that it is… Read more

Jesus said we are to enter by the narrow gate, so why it is so narrow and why are so few are finding it? I AM the Door Jesus referred to Himself as the Good Shepherd (John 10:11), and the door by which all the sheep must go in and come out (John 10:9). He says, “I am the door of the sheep” (John 10:7b), so it is only “To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and… Read more

The Christian needs the armor of God more today than ever, but God offers Himself as a shield to those who trust in Him. Awareness The Bible tells us that we have an enemy and one that’s more dangerous because he’s invisible. The Apostle Paul wants us to be prepared and so writes in Ephesians 6:10-11 to “be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be… Read more

The Apostle Paul knew he was about to die, so he left Timothy, and all of us, his last will and testament. Paul’s Purpose With the Apostle Paul’s departure, he knew that soon enough, wolves in sheep’s clothing would subtly move in and try and fill the vacuum, but instead of focusing on Christ and repentance and faith, they would “devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith”… Read more

There is a misconception about the fear of God, but that’s where true wisdom begins. Fearing God Fear is not always bad. It keeps us alive, it keeps us from hurting ourselves, it keeps us from hurting others, fear makes us take our children or ourselves to the doctor, and it can even keep us from getting food poisoning if something doesn’t smell right. Fear keeps former alcoholics away from social gatherings where alcohol may be served, so fear has… Read more

Where evangelists can’t go, God’s Spirit can, but God is also reaching Muslims by dreams. Read about some of these accounts. Joel’s Prophecy One of the most well know prophecies in the Bible is found in Joel 2 where Joel the Prophet wrote that “it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, and your young men shall see visions”… Read more
