This is a true story:
There was a pastor who pastored in another country. He was in his office at his church, alone, sitting at his desk. A man, that he had never seen before, walked in to his office.
The pastor stood to his feet and said, "Can I help you?"
The man was dressed nice. He looked normal. Looked no different than anyone else. He nodded and said, "No. I've come to bless you."
The pastor replied, "Please. Take a…Continue

Good news from the Graveyard
Graveyards are not usually fill with joy and hope if you are
Depressed and felling bad, one of the least likely places in
Which you would consider finding relief and release is a…Continue

This article is written in the spirit of love. It is not meant to be argumentative or arrogant. Its purpose is to raise the question to those that think they are in the faith to examine their hearts and know they are truly in the faith. We all must search our hearts and know that we truly are saved by the blood of Christ. If the blood of Christ covers our sins the results of that faith will be a new life that produces good fruit and shows witness to…Continue

" The righteous will flourish like a palm tree., they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green proclaiming, 'The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him' " (Psalm 92:12-15).
As people grow old, they cannot…Continue
“We would never learn to be brave and patient if there were only joy in the world,” wrote Helen Keller. How I wish she were wrong. Disappointments leave us with the unpleasant task of squashing, crushing, and pinching life’s lemons to extract anything to transform into lemonade
Newspaper columnist Ann Landers once wrote, “Expect trouble as an inevitable part of life, and when it comes, hold your head high. Look it squarely in the eye, and say, "I…Continue

Would you know it was Jesus?
Who else saw Jesus see after he had shed his burial clothes?
Now that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaeus, about seven miles from Jerusalem. (Luke 24) They were talking with each other about everything that had happened. As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them, but they were kept from recognizing him. This I do not understand--somehow, his…Continue

HISTORY OF CALVINISM
The history section of the book has two parts: the biography of John Calvin himself and the development of Calvinism beginning from 16th century until the 20th century. The summary of life’s story of Calvin was divided into two stages: his period of development both as a person and as a thinker and his period of ministry.

The Epicenter of Christianity. Today's Scripture from Luke 24 and John 20
So Peter and the other disciple started for the tomb. Both were running, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. He bent over and looked in at the strips of linen lying there but did not go in. Then Simon Peter, who was behind him, arrived and went into the tomb. He saw the strips of linen lying there, as well as the burial cloth that had been around Jesus' head. The cloth was…Continue

Christ is risen . . . He has risen indeed! Did you say that at church yesterday? This year, my Easter celebration was uniquely punctuated by sunset at the beach. I’ll get back to that, but for now, how blessed are we to go to church two thousand years after the resurrection and celebrate what took place on that Sunday so long ago?!
Remember? “On the first day of the week, at early dawn, they [the women] went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the…Continue

Matthew 28:1-20 (Good News Translation)
God’s Word Goes Forth: Trust in God’s Promises
Matthew 28:1-20: An angel rolls the stone from the tomb, revealing that Jesus has been raised! The women rush to tell the disciples, and on the way, they encounter the risen Christ. Later, Christ appears to the disciples on a mountain in Galilee, calling them to go forth and make disciples of all people.
Today’s Scripture: Matthew 28:5, 6

Recently, there has been a lot of talk here on AAG about Salvation; the nature of our redemption and whether we can keep this gift, lose it, throw it away or have it somehow tricked away from us.
One of the things I am convicted of is that we fail to recognize the depth of our need. When we begin to think that we can produce something to offer God, apart from his Spirit, we fool ourselves. Our only offering is to empty ourselves, to die to self, and take on Christ. There is…Continue
ne of the most telling indicators that the rapture is near is the number of people who write fearing that because of their behavior they're going to be left behind. People didn't worry so much about that when they thought the rapture was off in the distant future.
I'm sure some of this is due to the normal conviction of the Holy Spirit and in that case it's not a rapture issue because as we'll see born again believers can't be excluded from the Rapture for any reason. …

Crucified, buried . . . Finally, the procession reaches the top of Mount Calvary--Jesus and two criminals are to be crucified. Jesus is stripped naked, his bruised and bloodied arms outstretched on the rough wood--a five-inch long, three-eighths-inch square nail is driven through each of his hands--actually, more the wrists. Crucifixion is meant to be humiliating beyond compare, excruciating without any other equal, as each painful hour drags by before death by suffocation eventually…Continue
