Conspiracy Not Just a Theory: It's Revealed in the Bible

God told Habakkuk that He would do a work that people would not believe, though it be told to them. Colonel Ammerman (under General Schwarzkopf) cited unclassified information to say there were a million UN troops in N America, mostly on closed military bases. But with evening news like a lullaby, most people have no clue and wouldn't believe that government could be moving toward surveillance and tyranny.

How Do You Become a Christian? Through the Sinner's Prayer or the Great Commission?

Is the "sinner's prayer" compatible with the great commission given by Jesus?

Many Protestant church organizations lead people in a sinner's prayer to initiate them into Christianity. Various evangelists like Billy Graham and Campus Crusade for Christ have used the this type of prayer for many years. Perhaps the first to popularize it in modern times was Dwight L. Moody.

Finding the Will of God

Finding the will of God for our lives has been a journey of explorations. Many of those exploits have been runs of trial and error. Doors have been rattled, windows lifted, and streets traveled, all in pursuit of finding God's will for our lives. Caution lights have been neglected, even red lights ignored, all with a careless abandon to find God's direction for lives. In our endeavor to seek His elusive will, we have even attempted to help God by making suggestions. How long will it take for us to realize that the way to understanding the will of God is to open His Word and let Him speak to us? It is not simply reading the Word, but seeing it as a "burning bush" that will draw us into the presence of God. So many Believers wander aimlessly in the wilderness of life thinking about their past victories and mistakes. I can just see Moses reliving his riches to rags story over and over again! It was only when he was drawn to the fire retardant bush that his depressive life would not only change, but he would affect the lives of generations to come.

Do You Have Any Chains That Are Holding You Down?

Those who do not move do not notice their chains.

-Rosa Luxemburg-

There are many different forms of living in bondage other than being confined behind bars of iron in a prison cell serving out a sentence of several years.

Door Jam

Occasionally my husband has been asked to teach a Bible study at the United Nations in Vienna, Austria. As might be expected, the facility is very secure. It takes special permission to get in. There are security guards when you leave.

Giants Do Come Down

I Samuel 17: 38-51

In the book of I Samuel the Philistines had a giant in their army whose name was Goliath. This giant was a mighty warrior in the Philistines army and he came against the children of Israel. David went up and fought against Goliath and he defeated him. How was the giant Goliath defeated? He was defeated not using man's armor but through faith in God. David believed God, he trusted God. He did not stand around patting his feet saying God will defeat the giant. He did something, he fought. The scripture says, faith without works is dead. When David came against Goliath he took off the armor of man, he took off Saul's armor and he put on the armor of God. He took off the natural and put on the spiritual.

How Could God Have a Mother?

It would seem that many have a naïve view of the great Creator that defies belief. The perception that God has a mother is a claim that before God there was a woman who gave birth to 'him'. That takes some getting the head around. It also challenges scientific evidence that the creation we see everywhere around us has virtually no limit in age related terms. We don't know how old it is or how it came about but there are many guesses with no conclusions and many denials without evidence.
