TITUS 1:2 NKJ
2 in hope of eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised
before time began,

It's not just that God has decided He will not lie — He CANNOT
lie.

God only speaks truth!

JOHN 17:17 NKJ
17 “Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.

Whatever God says comes to pass. God cannot lie, because
anything He says will come into being — even if it did not
exist before He said it.

GENESIS 1:3 NKJ
3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

So God's Wo..

The fire was a “shock” because they were sleeping, the pastor said, but they were not physically injured.

A trash bin was placed in front of the building and set on fire. The firefighters arrived in time to stop the fire propagating to the rest of the b..

Central Asia (Mission Network News) — A young Deaf girl in Central Asia who we’ll call Saida was recently hospitalized after her family learned about her Christian faith and beat her.

Rob Myers with DOOR International shares what happened: “The screams she emitted caused the neighbors to call the police. When the police came, the police saw it was her family beating her and they said, ‘Well, this is a family issue, so we won’t get involved.’ The family then realized they kind of had immunity to..

An American pastor who has been imprisoned in Turkey since last October is pleading for President Trump and his administration to work more fervently for his release.

“I plead with my government—with the Trump administration—to fight for me. I ask the State Department to impose sanctions. I appeal to President Trump: Please help me. Let the Turkish government know that you will not cooperate with them in any way until they release me,” Andrew Munson wrote in a statement released by the American..

Passage1 Corinthians 6:1-11
PrayerDear Father, eternal and just judge of all,Help me never to shame you or your saints before the world. How could I dare seek arbitration with a brother before a judge who does not even know about Christ's way? If believers are someday to judge the world, and even angels, surely we can settle matters between ourselves. Help me, Father, to willingly suffer wrong rather than to quarrel with members of your family before the world and thereby invite their ridic..

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face.”
The Apostle Paul
I love the writings of Paul. Just think about what he was saying, “we now see through a mirror dimly”? Paul was talking about his own experience, you know, seeing Jesus on the Damascus Road, multiple visitations by Jesus to Paul, visions, trances, countless miracles. All of that is through a mirror dimly? Really? If that is true, heaven is going to be beyond our greatest hopes and dreams. We will see Jesus on the other s..

If you spend any time talking to me about the Trinity, you’ll know that I’m quick to recommend Matthew Bates’s book, The Birth of the Trinity. This book received wide acclaim from various tribes, and it’s on many people’s lists of go-to works on the Trinity and the early church. His new book, however, is getting a little more heat. I was provided a review copy of the book, and it’s certainly worth dealing with—whether one ends up agreeing with Bates’s proposal or not.

How He Longs for You

It is truly one of the most heartbreaking moments in all of Scripture.

In Matthew 23:37, we see Jesus’ heart for Israel, His wandering people: “Jerusalem, Jerusalem, you who kill the prophets and stone those sent to you, how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were not willing.”

Jesus spoke these words to the Jews, but His divine words tell us a lot about the heart of God for all His people. Our heaven..

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
Colossians 3:2
Morning
Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. § Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and stea..
