A powerful prayer This is a high energy passage that I will be going over with you for your encouragement. From the very day the leaders heard about the Colossians or had direct dealings with these Christians they did not cease to pray for them. The very first truth that they prayed for was that they would be filled with the knowledge of His will but with all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Only God can impart these gifts to us so this does take much intercession before God because it is not going to be granted the average person if they just stay natural. They prayed that they might walk worthy to the Lord and please Him and one of the ways we do this is to be fruitful in every good work but we have to be reading the Bible on a regular basis because increasing in the knowledge of God is usually when the Holy Spirit speaks to us in our minds and hearts. By the way we can also pray this prayer for ourselves because most people reading this article would lack in a couple of


So many blessings that only God could count them Paul states his position before God that he is an Apostle of Jesus Christ but only by the will of God. If we have a position in the kingdom of God it better be sanctioned by the Triune Godhead. Paul does not forget Timothy his brother in Christ. They had a very close relationship with each other and their bond has always been very positive in a warm way, unlike Mark who Paul seemed to have some fundamental problems with as a person. If we have a special bond with a Christian please do not take it for granted. Tell that brother or sister that you appreciate him or her. Paul acknowledges to the Christians and all the faithful brethren of Christ in Colosse and he gives the most gracious response by saying ... "Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ." They were obedient to God so he blessed them which is just one more addition to the warmness of God if we desire to follow His Son, J


Encouragement for you There are only four more verses in the book of 1 John. In the second Epistle of John there are only thirteen verses in the whole book. Most of these verses are saying the same truths that John reviewed in 1 John; however, some are unique. I would like to go over the last four verses in 1 John and select some uplifting verses in the book of 2nd John because I do not wish to go over the same biblical content with you that was already reviewed in previous articles.  If we are truly born again we really do not want to sin. Wise Christians will keep themselves so the devil will not be able to touch them. If we are in reach of demons sin is the next stumbling block that will confuse our minds and hurt our hearts. I will explain as the article progress what ... "But he that is begotten of God keepeth himself " ... because we should be on guard. If we leave our guard down then that is when the problems start in our life. We are children of God through His


Eternal life, requests and how to pray for Christians   This is a very interesting study because the Apostle John says so much in a small group of verses. If we truly believe in the Person of Jesus Christ we have the Holy Spirit as a witness inside our spirit. If a person does not believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God then this individual is calling God The Father a liar according to 1 John 5:10. This person does not believe the record that God gave of His Son. I find the word "Record" a very interesting choice of words. Did you know that everything gets recorded from heaven on this earth? Everything we do from beginning to end is being taped along with our thoughts and attitudes. John uses the word "Record" again in verse eleven to reiterate his point and assures us we have eternal life through Jesus Christ. Most denominations are false brands of true Christianity and many think they have the Son of God living in their hearts but half truth and half l
