  • Mourning The Loss Of a Loved One

    03/01/2024 11:47:00 AM PST · by OneVike · 16 replies
    Today I received a letter from a good friend who just lost a loved one. Let me predicate all this by stating my friend knows that her loved one is with our Lord, because my friend's loved one was a follower of Christ Jesus like herself. All who put their faith in Jesus know the promise that to be absent from the body means we are Present with our Lord. (2Corinthians 5:-10) I do understand her mourning, because she misses her loved one dearly. For those confronted with the loss of a loved one, I often times use the following...

    The Reason For My Faith ^ | 2/19/24 | Chuck Ness
    So many times we all wish we had a gift to peer into the future. All men desire that gift so they can live their life accordingly. We say that we would then be able to avoid the pitfalls, and be more prepared when we do catch up to our future. We claim this gift would help us make the right choices now. Truth is, if GOD gave us a gift to see the future outright, then we would inevitably take things into our own hands instead of calling upon Him to help guide us. If we knew the...

    "I remember asking myself questions. I'm trying to be a better man, I'm trying to be a good man. And I remember asking myself the question, what is a good man, and I was dwelling on it for weeks. I pride myself on being a good man. But really what is that? I'm sitting in my prayer time, my quiet time, God started speaking to me, telling me a good man is a dead man. And at first I heard that and I was like, I don't really know what that means. I want to live. But then he revealed...

    + + + In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. + + + Where to start when it comes to this fallen world and its inability clearly to make use of words? To define things and keep the definitions straight? To call a thing simply what it is and leave it at that? The first time a question mark was ever used as punctuation in Sacred Scripture, it was the devil speaking, “Did God say?” And because Eve entertained that doubt and acted upon it, you now live in a world where...

    Got Questions ^ | 23 Feb 2022
    The "Jesus Only" movement, also known as Oneness Pentecostalism or oneness theology, teaches that there is only one God, but denies the tri-unity of God. In other words, oneness theology does not recognize the distinct persons of the Godhead: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It has various forms / modes / manifestations—some see Jesus Christ as the one God, who sometimes manifests Himself as the Father or the Holy Spirit. The core doctrine of Oneness Pentecostal / Jesus Only is that Jesus is the Father and Jesus is the Spirit. There is one God who reveals Himself in different "modes."...

    The son of a felon and a rookie quarterback for the Houston Texans, CJ Stroud has been making waves in the NFL not just for his amazing story but because he has been incredibly humble when asked about his success, giving the glory to God rather than focusing on himself. Such could be seen when Stroud helped lead his team to victory over the Indianapolis Colts and secure a spot in the NFL playoffs. After that 23-19 victory, Stroud spoke about the game and the opportunity to enter the playoffs in his rookie year. Rather than focusing on his own...

    Rabbis since the Middle Ages onwards have sought to prove the validity of the Torah and our belief in G-d from the story of G-d’s revelation to the whole Jewish people at Mount Sinai. As explained by Rabbi Judah Halevi in the Kuzari, the logic goes like this: If G-d had not actually appeared to all the Jewish people, then it would have been impossible for someone to write a book that would be adopted as truth by those people. Because Jews of previous generations accepted the Torah as truth and passed it down to subsequent generations, and ultimately to...

    The Dumbing Down of America is a bold and provocative message from the late Dr. D. James Kennedy revealing the threats to education in our nation. Scripture Reference: Hebrews 2:1-9 Feature Description: The Bible’s clear that ônly fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.ö But God has largely been removed from public education. Educational leaders are pushing an agenda that’s turning our children from faith in God and His purpose for their lives. Let’s take a look at what that agenda is and the solutions put and to it.

    There were people who warned that this kind of thing would start happening in America. They were vilified, marginalized, and deplatformed as “Islamophobes.” But like so many who were dismissed in recent years as “hatemongers” and “conspiracy theorists,” they were right all along. Nashville’s WZTV reported that a Muslim family was arrested Tuesday on assault charges. Nick Kadum, his wife Rawaa Khawaji, and their son John Kadum are all accused of participating in the beating and abuse of another son for the crime of converting to Christianity.The young man, unnamed in media reports, was discovered when Nashville police “responded to...

    Lighthouses shine the brightest and are the most needed in the darkness of the storms of life to point to safety and preserve life. Thus are we to be Christ's lighthouse and a beacon of TRUTH, LIGHT and ETERNAL SAFTEY in such times to point all mankind to the Savior of their souls (Psalm 27:1, Matt. 5:16, John 8:12, Eph.5:22-23; Thess. 5:5, James 1:17, 1 Peter 2:9). Are we - as Almighty God's blood brought children - looking subjectively at our fallen world with all its innumerable crises and fears or are we seeing things objectively from Almighty God's ETERNAL...

    Israel is a nation in trauma. Shockwaves reverberated throughout the world when Hamas attacked civilian communities in southern Israel on Oct. 7, slaughtering people of all ages and taking more than 200 hostages. Entire villages now lie empty as the survivors have been forced to flee their homes. With the growing threat of violence in the north, many more have fled. Hundreds of thousands of people are now internally displaced, having lost everything. One kibbutz that is now abandoned is Be’eri. Hamas terrorists breached the “Iron Wall” fence that separates Israel and Gaza, and overran the small agricultural neighborhood at...
