Just How Ready Are You?

When I went into the Service.

When I was a boy, I played baseball every year. One thing I learned at an early age, it was difficult to play very much baseball by yourself. There were two essential items besides a ball and bat. These are teammates and the enemy… aka the other team. To make this happen, teams were formed…

Harvest Starts With Seed

If you have ever been around farmers, especially crop growing farmers, you know some really patient people. They have a very strict schedule, though it seems not.

Luke 8:45-46 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?  And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me. There are many instances in…

The End of an Era?

Has the Church Age come and gone? In the book of Revelation, Jesus reveals to John a view of 7 churches. These were 7 churches located in what is now called Turkey. Jesus speaks to John and tells of their positive and negative traits. Most scholars agree that not only are these real churches at…

Has the world gone mad?

To the Believers in The Way (that is what the original church was called), it would seem so. The world is turning so unGodly, they are barely tolerable. It is getting harder and harder for a true believer to deal with the things of this world. But this we were promised.  2 Timothy 3:10-13 English…
