Authored by stephen0porter on Fri, Nov 09 2018 - 03:34 PM
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. God created a perfect world for mankind to live in and for us to fellowship with God EVERY DAY. WE, in Adam, HAD IT MADE. Eve was created to be a helpmate, or companion, for Adam. We have to remember that God told Adam not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. ...Read Blog »

James 4:2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts. The Bible says that we don’t have because we do not ask, so, why do we not have WHEN ...Read Blog »

Matthew 6:34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. We spend a great deal of time dreaming of travelling to the stars and imagining what wonders will be created in the future. The trouble with that is that we are losing time ...Read Blog »

Luke 2:52 And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favour with God and man. Today, Jesus would be considered to be a nerd. He did what His parents told Him to do.

Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

Romans 1:17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
