Satan’s Favorite Christians Are The Ones Who Deny That He Exists

THIS IS WAR

We spend so much time focusing on ourselves and our shortcomings and wallowing in our self-doubt that we effectively remove ourselves from the fight.  That is exactly what the enemy wants.  Once you realize that Christ has completely eliminated the penalty for your sin  and all you must do is believe then you are freed and empowered to help others.  Those stuck in works-righteousness can never see … Continue reading THIS IS WAR

Rapture and Pre-tribulation Rapture Made Simple!

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!

We have another reader contribution to share with you.  This one is from SilentKnight (thank you, brother!).  I have to say that I find this Scripturally/exegetically convincing for a number of reasons, but time does not permit me to unpack that all myself.  In short, I think that Isaiah 7:14, like Revelation 12:5, speaks both of Christ and His Church.  Both are necessary parts in the fulfillment … Continue reading O Come, O Come, Emmanuel!

Scientists use mathematical calculations to PROVE the existence of God

Dr Gödel’s model uses mathematical equations that are extremely complicated, … Continue reading Scientists use mathematical calculations to PROVE the existence of God
