Two Offerings and Two Motives Yield the First Murder

Enjoying True Riches Forever

Money itself is not evil, nor is it good. It all depends on what our attitude is toward it. How people spend or use money is the problem with the world. Evil concerning money all comes back to the love of money, which is greed. And greed is the reason the world is such a mess…

The Steps to Take on Our Way to God

All roads lead to the same God, the world tells us. But the truth is that there’s only one road, only one right path leading to the one, true God. How can we know what path to take to get there? “Ask for the old paths,” the Bible says. The “old path” is the blood…

Who Designs Our Destiny?

Gethsemane is where we see the agony that Jesus, the Son of God, went through as He fulfilled His destiny to be the Savior of the world. God pulled the veil aside so that we could see what a great price had to be paid to make it possible for us become His sons and…

Remembrance of the Gift of Life

Throughout the Old Testament, images like a refuge, a shield, and a fortress are used to represent God. They describe how perfectly secure all the ones who live in Him are. The word “kept” is sometimes used as a military word in the Bible to indicate protection, as in a fortress. God is able to…

Satisfying the Human Heart

Today, it seems like it’s all about me, what’s mine, what will satisfy me. Whatever is ‘new’ always appeals to us, because our heart is never satisfied. We are so inclined to look for satisfaction in ourselves! Yet, the moment we do, we have chosen the path to ruin. The things of this world will…

A Power Greater Than the Devil

Whenever we purposely stop depending on God’s Holy Spirit to help us stand against being tempted to sin, and then turn around and deliberately make plans to sin, we leave ourselves exposed to possible attacks, or even control, by Satan. It is not just our actions that he attacks—our motivation is under attack as well….

The Truth Must Hold Us

Whenever God’s Word has been put to the test, it has been found every time to be as true as the purest gold and worthy of our trust. It is God’s truth alone that protects us from evil and sets us free. But when experience alone dominates our life instead, the truth of God is…
