Jesus taught us many things and often spoke in parables to hide their true meaning. One of the few parables he explained was the Parable of the Wheat and the Tares. He predicted that the gospel message would be corrupted as time moved further away from when he and his Apostles died. We are grateful for this warning because, by expecting this to occur, we can begin to understand what we need to watch out for. It reinforces just how crafty Satan is and how wee can be deceived if we are not diligent. Watch this 2-minute vlog and then listen to the entire podcast of the same name.
This short video answers this most poignant of all questions. This world is so troubled and every generation of mankind has faced horrible evil before going into the grave. There must be some hope, some reason for all this pain. If an all-loving God exists, when will He do something? Where is He with all of this mess? Why isn't He fixing everything NOW? Watch and be strengthened in your faith!
Good and Evil. Throughout history there has always been a battle between the two and for many who hold a religion as sacred, this battle has its leaders. As Christians, we embrace God Almighty as the unequivocal Creator and Leader of all that is good and righteous, and we see Satan as the captain of all the dark forces that stand against God. So, just who is Satan? Is he a real being, and if so, how did he get to be so evil? If God created all that is good, then how could God have created Satan, the father of darkness? Does Satan come from someplace else? Did God make a mistake?
Demons – what are they – who are they? Are they associated with Satan or are they figments of very fertile imaginations, brought to life through very real special effects and computer technology? Demons are real and are the minions of Satan – but when we think of minions, what do we think of? Believe it or not, we have become comfortable with demons being among us, because they are so often portrayed as misunderstood and even likable beings. Are we in trouble? Yes!
Where is God when our loved ones die? When there are school shootings and natural disasters? In under three minutes, start learning about why God allows bad things to happen now and about His plan to eventually do away with all sin, sickness and pain.
"Resurrection on Earth” is the second part of the two-part series, preceded by “Resurrection in Heaven.” In God’s kingdom, all mankind will be resurrected. Those who were followers of Christ will have a special heavenly reward, but what about everyone else? Watch to find out about the resurrection of all mankind to a perfect earth!
Ours is a day of openness, availability and communication – sort of. We can stay in touch with friends and family on a moment by moment basis, follow news as it happens and even tap into the spirit world pretty much at will. Wait a minute…what? Tapping into the spirit world – is that something good or could it be horribly evil, even though it might look good? Stay with us as we look into a dimension beyond our own to find out what is really happening out there…
Several weeks ago we talked about demons and their influence in our world. We looked at how devious they can be as satanic influence infiltrates our media and our lives. Well, what about angels? Where do they fit in this present age? Are there really guardian angels to watch over us? Can or should we try and communicate with angels? Are angels ever at our disposal to help us make decisions and do they sometimes literally talk us through our most traumatic experiences? Stay with us as we look into the Godly world of angels and what the Bible says their role is in our lives.
We live in a world of battles and contradictions. We have political battles, philosophical battles and moral battles. We have battles between nations, peoples and religions. We battle disease, cold and hunger. We battle ourselves. And we battle against evil. We battle against the dark, treacherous and sin-filled paths of evil. And if that isn’t enough, that battle also takes place with powers that we can only imagine, both for good and evil. We will look at the powers of darkness – the powers of evil as expressed through the demons who inhabit our atmosphere.
