Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not swear falsely, but shall perform your oaths to the Lord.’ 34 But I say to you, do not swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is God’s throne; 35 nor by the earth, for it is His footstool; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the … Continue reading The Matter of Oaths and Swearing – What Does Jesus Say?

I was brought up in a church where every Wednesday evening there was a Prayer and Testimony service. People would stand and tell how God had blessed them that week. And when my husband worked for the Sheriff's department, one of his assignments was to be a bailiff at the courthouse. He daily stood in … Continue reading The Word Testimonies is More Than You Think
Holy Spirit has me on a learning curve about the meaning of words. They appear often in the Bible, yet, are rarely used in our society today. 'Statutes' is one of those words. If you read the Bible like most people, you often see this word and pass right over it. You may see it … Continue reading The Bible Speaks About Statutes. What Are They?

This past Sunday, our pastor preached a message out of Exodus 17, entitled, 'God Can Be Trusted?' One of the verses he highlighted was verse 15, where Moses built an altar to celebrate the Israelite's victory over the Amalekites. Moses called the altar, 'The LORD is My Banner,' or Yehovah Nissi. Our pastor asked the … Continue reading The LORD is our Banner
