  For they [God’s people] did not gain possession of the land by their own sword, nor did their own arm save them; but it was Your right hand, Your arm, and the light of Your countenance, because You favored them. - Psalm 44:3 Did you know that you are favored by God?

Modern Science Proves Laws of Health in Leviticus.

Authored by samkadya on Tue, Oct 13 2015 - 02:02 AM

The laws of health recorded in Leviticus are another point reflecting the divine authorship of that book. While Moses resided in Egypt and there received the education given to all the princes of the court, he no doubt also encountered the arts of healing practiced by the priests of his day. A comparison of the medical arts of Egypt in the ...

Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes. - Song of Solomon 2:15 (KJV). Are we too caught up in the small things that we miss the important things?  Are we too caught up in our way of thinking as the right and only way that we don't see other people's perspective? I find that it is the ...

The Bible and Health

Authored by samkadya on Thu, Oct 08 2015 - 02:59 PM

Although health plays such a vital part, literally, in everyone's life, although it has profound effects on spiritual well-being, and although it receives significant attention in the Bible, the topic gets little notice form the majority of Christian churches. Only a few Christians afford it a prominent and honored place in their teachings. This ...

"We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life ... But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God." 2 Corinthians 1:8-9 Think about this Scripture for a moment.   How many times have you been under great pressure?  Felt like you were going through something far ...

“Then the LORD said to him, ‘What is that in your hand?’...” - Exodus 4:2 (NIV). We all have a destiny, a reason we are on this Earth, an assignment we are supposed to accomplish. We wait, thinking that God needs to equip us. Only God has already given us all things that pertain to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). We ...
