Faith and Virtue

In Mark 5:25-34 a certain woman had an issue of blood for twelve years. We are all individuals in the eyes of God.

She had a problem. She was trying to stay alive. What made this even worse was in her physical dilemma she was also wandering around in discouragement because no Doctor could help her, and she spent all of her money. Physically ill, broke ( no money) and discouraged. I know what it is like to be so sick and helpless. Thank the Good Lord that we serve a God that deeply cares for us.

She had no control over her issues. Sound familiar? What do we do when we have to sit in a hopeless dilemma? Stay discouraged or have faith in Jesus Christ. God puts us in these dilemmas on purpose. We are then forced to make a decision.

Since we are so close to the rapture, this particular scenario has been taking place at an increasing rate because Jesus Christ does not have much time to do what He wants to accomplish with His children.

After twelve years Jesus Christ was walking through her hom…

tHE HOLY SPIRIT IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament

I believe that we all have to come to God through Christ, but God deals with the OT elect

differently then He does the NT Bride of Christ. There are numerous verses in the OT,

though none in the NT, that show The Holy Spirit being removed from the faithful and

sometimes coming upon the faithful more then once. Here are a few.

Num 11:17 & Num 11:25 Show us the Lord removing part of His spirit from Moses and

placing Him on others.

Num 11:17 And I will come down and talk with thee there: and I will take of the spirit

which is upon thee, and will put it upon them; and they shall bear the burden of the

people with thee, that thou bear it not thyself alone

Num 11:25 And the LORD came down in a cloud, and spake unto him, and took of the

spirit that was upon him, and gave it unto the seventy elders: and it came to pass, that,

when the spirit rested upon them, they prophesied, and did not cease.

In Judges 11:25 we have the Holy Spirit coming upon Samson three times.…

Betrayal and Offense

Betrayal and offense

The Bible unfortunately says in the future seven year tribulation period which I believe is very close, that betrayal and offense will be rampant around the world." And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another." Matthew 24:10.

Betrayal is one thing. Betrayal with offense is something entirely different.If we are betrayed without offense, we can just brush it off and not take it personal.If we are betrayed with offense, that is a deep seated emotion which goes through our spirit. Notice in the last part of Matthew 24:10..." And shall hate one another." Satan will set up three horrible emotions combined into one for the purpose of hurting people---(1) offense (2) betrayal (3) hatred.

There are many different situations around the world. Divorce, war, brothers, sisters, a friend or system may have offended you. It could be almost anything.

It's a shame adults are not like children. If you look at them…

WHY A JUDGMENT

Why a Judgment?

Why does God have to judge the world? The heart of God was grieved when He looked into the hearts of men. In Genesis 6:5 the Bible says,"The wickedness of men was great on earth,and that every imagination of the thoughts of the heart was only evil continually." In Genesis 6:6 the Bible says..."And it grieved Him at His heart."Genesis 6:6.

The Holy Spirit gets more specific about the fruit of the heart of man in Genesis 6:11."The earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence." God saw that excessive sin in the world leads to violence. The violence is spoken of in verse 11 because these two are synonymous with one another.God can only look at so much evil before He intervenes.

At that particular time God gave Noah the Revelation about destroying the world with a flood, He was still willing to give the world 120 years even though the heart of God was grieved. He was reluctant to judge right away.

The Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus Christ

John 20:1-21
1 The first day of the week cometh Mary Magdalene early,
when it was yet dark, unto the sepulchre, and seeth the stone taken away from the sepulchre. 2 Then she runneth, and cometh to Simon Peter, and to the other disciple, whom Jesus loved, and saith unto them, They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him. 3 Peter therefore went forth, and that other disciple, and came to the sepulchre. 4 So they ran both together: and the other disciple did outrun Peter, and came first to the sepulchre.5 And he
stooping down, and looking in, saw the linen clothes lying;
yet went he not in. 6 Then cometh Simon Peter following him, and went into the sepulchre, and seeth the linen clothes lie, 7 And the napkin, that was about his head, not lying with the linen clothes, but wrapped together in a place by itself. 8 Then went in also that other disciple, whi…
