Discerning the Voice of the Lord

We are often asked, “How can I tell whether it is God speaking to me or the devil.” Now anyone who tells you it is easy is a novice. It is not easy because the enemy is subtle, and he knows us well. He is a master at deceit. There are no few quick tricks you can learn that will assure you that you w... Read More

Go To Church Or Go To Hell

People who do not go to church go to hell. Shocking statement? Unquestionably! But can it be proven? Only to those who believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God.

The Lord Will Guide Those Who Fear Him

“What man is he that feareth the LORD? Him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed shall inherit the earth.” (Psalm 25:12-13) There was a time not too many years ago when a believer was described simply as a “God-fearing man.” That was before modern...

Whom Shall I Fear? The Lord is My Light

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
