The Principle of Preparing

For the Church to see “the rapture” as the finish line of our faith is to be like a near-sighted runner in a race that stops 10 yards short of the finish line. (See Mike’s detailed teaching about this on our “Prepare” page of our website)   The generation of the faithful in Christ that… Read more »

Letter to our President and Vice-President

Dear President Trump and Vice President Pence,   This letter is full of praise unto our God and is why we want to:   Thank you for your personal sacrifices on behalf of true Americans; legal law-abiding patriots; those who love and uphold our good Constitution and who live here as Americans.

Self-Respect

Self-respect has been lost in America (for most); personally and nationally. Personally: self-respect is understanding your worth and having the self-control and wisdom to develop that worth for ‘good’ not ‘evil’ – the personal worth that God put in us as He formed us in the womb.

Feelings and emotions are a bottomless pit. Truth is a rock-solid foundation.   What we have been seeing in America is the moving away from truth by the lifting up of “feelings and emotions” over the truth. Truth comes from God and leads the way to the life that is truly LIFE.   Feelings and… Read more »

Brilliant Minds

We went to see the movie Hidden Figures and what an excellent movie it was.   In the movie we saw how ‘prejudice’ stands in the way of people with brilliant minds doing great things for the common good. Clearly God has given each baby in the womb the potential of genius and excellence.  … Read more »

The Mind

The mind that God gave us is a powerful thing; it can work for us or against us.   Watching the series ALONE I saw one contestant who let his mind work against him, instead of for him. He was quick to think the worse about his situation each day, and quick to become angry… Read more »
