We Need Comfort (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4…

Our Hope of Heaven (Romans 8:24-25)

For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience. Romans 8:24-25 Christians should take time to think about heaven every day.  I’m not talking about a…

Are You Part of the 144,000?

And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel. Revelation 7:4 Chapter 7 is one of the more misunderstood chapters of Revelation.  Even though the book says it is “signified” (Revelation 1:1), many take what is written in the book literally instead of figuratively.  For example,…

Stressed? Change Your Perspective! (Psalm 37:1)

The Four Horsemen of Revelation (Rev. 6:1-8)

And I looked, and behold, a white horse! And its rider had a bow, and a crown was given to him, and he came out conquering, and to conquer. Revelation 6:2 You might have heard of “the four horsemen of the Apocalypse” mentioned in Revelation.  Yet do you know what that vision is talking about?…

Divine Corroborating Evidence

The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs – heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ…. Romans 8:16-17a How do you know that you are a child of God?  How do you know that you’re going to heaven? Perhaps you “just know.”  I’ve…

A Lost Religious Man
