Please reply with your experiences as black members of the Christian church! Experiences with racism, microaggressions, being used as the ‘diversity’ member, experience attending an all-black church, experience attending a majority-white church, anything at all! My friend and I started an...
Stanley Meyer's water fuel cell - The water fuel cell is a technical design
of a "perpetual motion machine" created by American Stanley Allen Meyer
(August 24, 1940 – March 20, 1998). Meyer claimed that an automobile
retrofitted with the device could use water as fuel instead of gasoline...
Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, "Lazarus, come forth!" And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, "Loose him, and let him go." John 11:43-44
This familiar story is often told from...
“Whether Paul or Apollos, or Cephas, or the World, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s”—1 Corinthians 3:22-23
Christians are on polar, erroneous extremes concerning the gifts of God to his children – the Church. Hence...
THIS IS ALL ABOUT SURRENDERED LOVE TO HIM!
You become so completely in love with the Lord causing you to trust your whole being to
Him including all your circumstances!

Time is ticking;
Where is your faith?
Do you doubt?
What’s your practice?
Where’s your life?
Who’s your idol

Blow your trumpets.
Clang your gongs.
Throw your parties.
Chat with friends.
The Things Above
Colossians 3:1-4 ESV
If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in...
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh...
This is the will of God, your sanctification… —1 Thessalonians 4:3
The Death Side. In sanctification God has to deal with us on the death side as well as on the life side. Sanctification requires our coming to the place of death, but many of us spend so much time there that we become morbid...
Some months ago I learnt a different way about doing something. I have actually learnt a few things of late and in time would like to share them, but for now, here is a simple video which shows how to peel a banana.
Apparently this is the way that monkeys go at it
So often we think...
forgive me please if the expression, "at the foot of the Cross" bugs you in any way as being not Scriptural, but please bear with me as i attempt to 'paint a picture' for your consideration. Thank you in advance.
Christ and Him crucified. The foot of the Cross, one of the many cruel...
Monday, July 24, 2017, 7:23 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Unless You Are Born Again.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Romans 6 (ESV).
Newness of Life (vv. 1-11)
What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died...
I keep having the same problem over and over and it is so caustic and traumatic. I feel very alone. I have a mother that abuses me, lies, fabricates, mocks, and berates me often. But, I don't have any other family and no one to turn to. Although I feel she loves me and I was born out of her, she...
Wednesday, March 1, 2017, 10:00 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “I Sing of His Mercy.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read 1 John 5 (Select vv. NASB).
Born of God (vv. 1-4)
Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and whoever loves the Father loves the child...
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! (Note : call…: Heb. say concerning evil, It is good, etc)
As the thread title suggests, the question we can look at...
Thursday, December 15, 2016, 7:30 a.m. – The Lord Jesus put in mind the song “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.” Speak, Lord, your words to my heart. I read Romans 8:1-17 (ESV).

There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the...
Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for He is faithful that promised; )
What IS Believing?
this question has been asked recently so let us have a look at it in more detail, but at the same time keeping it simple!
To give something to work...
For our God is a consuming fire.
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
And the sight of the glory of the LORD was like devouring fire on the top of the mount in the eyes of the children of Israel.
a short question which is open for long answers!
Does eternal life mean there must be eternal death? (like the fire that burns forever).
If we die to sin, then surely we die to it permanently, or else it is not dead and dead is dead, which is forever., otherwise it is not really...
