Having seen [the promises] afar off [they] were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

One determines … Continue reading

It is the law of “diplomatic immunity,” and in essence it says, “Where … Continue reading

Since that time the kingdom of God has been preached and everyone is pressing into it.

Kingdom Keys—Part 1

And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 16:19 Keys represent privilege, trust and authority.

Growth, preparedness, training and trust converge in the release of this expensive vehicle unto the care and use … Continue reading

Learning To Yield

Daniel 3:17, 18 Nebuchadnezzar felt that his kingdom was threatened. Loss of unity in the kingdom seemed to threaten all that he … Continue reading
