The Death of the Vision (1975)

Post Views: 20 From the early times of the Lord drawing our little band of believers together to reach our city with the Good News three things seemed to repeat in our burdens of prayer.

This Means War!

Post Views: 41 Obviously no one knows the future, but I wish I did. I had no idea what God was up to in our city, nor how much the devil and his allies would fight back.

God Tells The Church What Is Valuable To Him and What We Must Practice!

Post Views: 69 It is imperative that every true Christ follower understands what is important to God. Then alter their lifestyle to practice what God Almighty specifies is the way to focus and fulfill His will. From the very first day the church was formed God was clear. And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. Then fear came upon[…]

The Narrow Way Part 4: Very Few Will Actually Enter the Narrow Way and Heaven

Post Views: 418 Matthew chapter seven has haunted me for years. My heart aches for the multitude of people who have had or are having regular contact with the church but will blindly end up in hell despite the best effort of the saints. In spite of the loving efforts of Christians to share the GOOD NEWS with their family, friends, and neighbors Americans in this generation have hardened their[…]
