Unseen Reality

October 1st, 2017

Rande Greene

“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.”
– Ephesians 6:12

We cannot avoid the arena of spiritual realities. Just because we cannot see the realm of the spirit does not mean it is not there or inactive. The dimension of the spirit is the only answer for the depravity of human evil.

The Glory of Going On

September 24th, 2017

David Fuller

And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God.
– Mark 12:34 [excerpt]

After 6 grueling months of mining beneath a mountain, a man, discouraged by minimal yields,
buries his pick, candles, and dynamite a mere 6 inches from one of the richest gold deposits ever discovered. When we choose to go on despite the circumstances, we are witnesses to His glory.

Which Things the Angels Desire to Look Into

September 24th, 2017

David Fuller

“Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently, who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you: Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.”
– 1 Peter 1:10:12

Entering His Rest

September 17th, 2017

Rande Greene

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.”
– Revelation 3:20

Revival and Rejoicing

August 27th, 2017

Rande Greene

“Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?”
– Psalms 85:6

The connection here between spiritual revival and rejoicing is obvious and must not be overlooked. Spiritual revival will cause rejoicing in the Lord. Revival is in the simplest definition a renewed awareness of God; a fresh awareness of His presence.

Confess Him Plainly

August 20th, 2017

Rande Greene

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.”

Prov 18:21

“Therefore whoever confesses Me before men, him I will also confess before My Father who is in heaven.”

Matt 10:32

While We Were Yet

August 13th, 2017

Rande Greene

Christ died for us while we were yet sinners. We were helpless and dead in trespasses and sins. We were not able to raise ourselves to life. God in Christ Jesus came to raise us when we were yet in our sinful state and were without strength.

He met us were we were and not where we should have been.

Living Hope

August 6th, 2017

Rande Greene

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.”

– 1 Peter 1:3-5

Tough-Minded and Tender-Hearted

July 30th, 2017

Rande Greene

Jesus knew he would be betrayed and forsaken yet he was not bitter and hardened by it. He was tender hearted. One must be tough-minded to be tender-hearted in a world of betrayal.

Our Lord’s Return

July 23rd, 2017

Rande Greene

“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.”
– 1 Thess 4:16-17

The answer for the beleaguered Thessalonian church is this, “Jesus is coming back. Jesus himself will return. We will see him. We will be with him forever, for eternity.”
