CONFESSING THE NAME OF CHRIST “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” (Philippians 2:9-11 KJV) Paul clearly taught that every human being should bow to the authority of Christ.…

TIME Time may be considered an enemy or a friend depending on one’s perspective. On one hand it is precise and reliable. On the other hand, it is finite and fleeting.

A SUMMARY OF THE BIBLE There are some things one needs to carefully consider as one engages in the study of the Bible. This book which we are studying is no ordinary book.

TRIALS Trials are essentially a test. Clinical trials test new medications to determine their safety and effectiveness. Civil and criminal trials test evidence to determine guilt or innocence. Students are tested to quantify the effectiveness of their education. Mankind is constantly tested. The same holds true in spiritual matters. The Israelites were tested. “Did any people ever hear the voice of God speaking out of the midst of the fire, as you have heard, and live? “Or did God ever…

the good fight John Paul Jones was handsome, Scottish, and completely insane. During the American Revolution, Jones led a campaign to invade England knowing full well that the British Royal Navy was the largest and most powerful navy on the planet, and he had less than 100 converted merchant ships. The way he managed to achieve this, without an early visit to Davy Jones’ Locker, was by using pirate tactics. First, he captured a British vessel off the coast of…
