Doctrine is designed to handle the pressures of life. Our job is to follow Him. John 11:1-7

John 11:1 Now a certain man was sick, Lazarus of Bethany, the village of Mary and her sister Martha.   It is very interesting that all the way through we always forget about Lazarus. Lazarus means God is my help.   Lazarus never complained. So the real hero is the one who isn’t...

Predestination - the boundaries God has given you so that you may receive God's highest and best.

Eph 1:5 In love, He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself [that’s the environment of royalty], according to the kind intention of His will,   /“having predestinated” is the aorist active participle of the compound verb proorizo which means to predesign or to...
