    Parables of Jesus

    Jesus' parables are short stories that teach a moral or spiritual lesson by analogy or similarity. They are often stories based on the agricultural life that was intimately familiar to His original first century audience.

    Some aspect of an unfamiliar concept, such as the kingdom of God, was compared to something from everyday life that could easily be understood.

    There is a lot of noise, lots of "religions" and beliefs out there to confuse anyone. But, Jesus is real. He loves you, He's ready to forgive you for all your sins and make your heart His dwelling place. Read about God's characteristics and attributes and get to know the real Jesus today.

    Understanding Inadequacy

    Poor self-image. Past failures. Weak faith. We all feel inadequate in different areas of our lives. No one is adequate within themselves to be saved or to serve God effectively. We must respond to God’s call and rely on the Holy Spirit.

    Obsession

    But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.
    Daniel 12:13

    Daniel 12:9

    Perfumes in the 1980s became stronger than those of earlier times as designers tried to satisfy the demands of sensory-oriented Yuppies. It began with "Giorgio" by Giorgio of Beverly Hills. Then Christian Dior introduced "Poison," which had such a strong floral fragrance that some New York restaurants banned it. Paris-based Guerlain introduced its sandalwood-rich "Samsara;" and in 1985, Calvin Klein debuted his "Obsession."

    The word "obsession" often has a negative connotation, implying neurotic preoccupation; but it's an appropriate word for the way many people live. We're obsessed with pleasure, with sports, with hobbies, with goals, with entertainment.


    Some believers grow obsessed with current trends, biblical prophecy, and the signs of the times. A healthy interest in those subjects is good, but God doesn't want us to be consumed by them. He told Daniel to go away and occupy himself with the work while awaiting the fulfillment of prophecy. That's what we're to do as well. Study the prophecies of the Last Days, but don't neglect the work of today.

    Bible prophecy helps us to better understand the future and realize the urgent need to spread the Gospel. It motivates us to personal purity and gives us hope in a hopeless age.
