That They May Be One
“And now I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them in your name that you have given me, so that they may be one, as we are one.”Room For Everybody
Yes, it’s the Feast of Pentecost again, the birthday of the church – the day we remember that very significant event that took place in Jerusalem that started with wind and fire and so much chaos, and concluded with the Apostle Peter standing up and explaining, “No, we are not drunk. It’s only 9am in the morning” (the implication being, of course, that had it been a little later in the day, well…).Faith Is Passion
I am telling the truth in union with Christ-I am not lying, for my conscience, confirms it in the Holy Spirit. I have deep sorrow and unceasing anguish in my heart, for I could wish that I myself were condemned and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, my relatives according to the flesh. They are Israelites. To them belong the adoption, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises. To them belong the patriarchs, and from them, according to the flesh, Christ descended, who is God over all, blessed forever. Amen.Examining the Seven-Day Adventist Belief on the Mark of the Beast Issue, Sabbath and Sunday
As a prophecy student who has been studying the beliefs of the Seven-day Adventist church for more than two decades, I think that I am in a position to give an unbiased review about the tenets of their faith. For the purpose of this article, I will not give a review of their entire belief system; I will only confine my comments to their prophecy position as it relates to the mark of the beast. The Adventists must be recognized for their contribution to theology in the area of Bible prophecy.The Iran War Against Israel Has Begun
An attack against Israelis in southern Israel is connected with a barrage of more than 90 missiles launched from Gaza against Israel. It turns out that Iran is behind both of these assaults as it has begun war with Israel. But God will use this war to fulfill end-times Bible prophecy. See how in this article.How Then Should We Worship?
Uplifted hands? On our faces? Loud voices? Hushed? You might be surprised at what God says about His worship requirements through brother James in your New Testament.Gifts Or No Gifts
It is the faith of most Christians that in the first century A.D. God poured out His Spirit on the infant church and blessed individual members with graces or gifts. For many years now a controversy has raged around what was meant to be a blessing to us. Do the gifts exist today? All or some? Miraculous or not? And on and on. Here’s a brief summary of what the professing and possessing church believes.The Galilean Prophet Who Became The Messiah
Jesus’ ministry did not stop, or even halt, at his death. This Prophet became also an everlasting Priest and the King of all ages. The Ministry of Jesus continues on through the Holy Spirit. And this ministry will not be stopped at arrogant intercessions of Pharisaic individuals. This Jesus Ministry is one on the rise, more and more. It will never stop growing.Gabrieli: Israel’s Handwoven Tallit Dynasty
Israel boasts dozens of handmade tallit makers, but only a few weave their tallits on a hand loom. With sales from Los Angeles to New York, South America to South Africa, Jerusalem to London – and all stops in between – Gabrieli Hand Weaving has taken its place as the world’s leading handwoven tallit maker.Being Jesus in Oslo, Being Jesus in Nashville
How many more Oslos will there have to be before we finally get, “when you push the demonization of populations, you often end up with violence,” as Heidi Beirich, the research director of the Southern Poverty Law Center said of the tragedy. And what happens when the pusher is Christianity…in the name of some abstract idea of Christ? Oslo gives us a vivid example.How to Start a Church – The Primary Key to Building a Strong and Healthy Church Community
I wholeheartedly believe that the church’s long standing ideas about helping to grow the church of Christ are quite misguided. As Christians, we have consumed way too much time looking to find people’s limitations, and far too little time on designing the kind of environment that would enable them to grow. If Christians form the type of environment for people to flourish, God Almighty will create his church.How to Buy Rosary Beads
