Exactly what is a moment? Does it translate into approximately a minute? Or is there really any definite period of time assigned to this word? After duly researching this, the conclusion is that the ‘moment’ known today does not have a definite fixed duration, other than being very brief (kind of disappointing, right?). But the…

The Miracle of Life in the Precious Blood

The primary element that a human organism comes from is the life’s blood. Our soul uses the heart as a pump, and it’s our blood that carries the life elements which send energy and nourishment to all areas of our body. The blood lives and is fed by itself, not by any other part of…

Looking for a Better City to Call Home

The Lord made an ultimate promise to the heart of Abraham, of eternal rest in the heavenly city. “By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles [tents] with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise: for he looked for a city which…

This is No Time to Sleep

At one point in His ministry here on Earth, Jesus turned to His disciples and told them to “…watch ye therefore and pray…” (Luke 21:36). The Apostle Paul followed with this same advice later, saying: “…let us watch and be sober” (1 Thessalonians 5:6). The true disciples of God must not be caught in spiritual…

He Was Alone, Yet Among Many Others

The summit always seemed completely out of reach as the small group of climbers continued their slow and arduous ascent. Marcus, the self-appointed leader of the group, felt that, if they were to reach one of the many plateaus on this side of the mountain range before sunset, they would all have to pick up…

A Place Free From Oppression

Thousands of years ago, the children of Israel were living in the land of Egypt. Yet the longer they resided there, the worse things got for them. They had been in bondage and slavery to the Egyptians, having no hope or real future, and not a lot of faith in God. Then, at some point…

The Fourteenth Street Bridge

It is January, 1982. A heavy blanket of wet snow covers Washington, D.C. The snow has slowed down everything in its path. Businesses and the government have closed down early. The roads and the bridges crossing the frozen Potomac River are jammed. Seventy-five cities have reported record-breaking cold temperatures. For a moment the weather breaks…
