Hope In Ancient Greek

I became a believer in Jesus many years ago, and have been one of his followers ever since.  One of the first things I did after becoming a believer in Jesus was to purchase my first Bible; before that, I had never owned a Bible, nor had I ever read anything from the Bible.  IContinue reading “Hope In Ancient Greek”

Hope In Judgment

At the outset of this teaching, I want to point out that both judgment and justice in the Bible are topics and concepts that are inseparably related—but also much different in many respects and in many aspects.                 In a perfect world here on planet earth, a courtroom judge would weigh very carefully a caseContinue reading “Hope In Judgment”

Hope In Justice

The book, Hope For All, by my friend Gerry Beauchemin, lists 10 Anchors or 10 reasons why God’s infinite and eternal love ultimately draws everything and everyone to Himself.  To me, this book, along with its companion book, Hope Beyond Hell, studied together, is the clearest introduction available on the market today about the subjectContinue reading “Hope In Justice”

Hope in Fire

The book, Hope For All, by my friend Gerry Beauchemin, lists 10 Anchors or 10 reasons why God’s infinite and eternal love ultimately draws everything and everyone to Himself.  To me, this book, along with its companion book, Hope Beyond Hell, studied together, is the clearest introduction available on the market today about the subjectContinue reading “Hope in Fire”

Rewards

I became a believer in Jesus many years ago. Details of that awesome experience are written in my autobiography,  Him ‘n me (available on amazon.com). Immediately after I became a believer in Jesus, I began voraciously reading the Bible—and haven’t stopped since, reading it completely through a minimum of once a year—sometimes more. In additionContinue reading “Rewards”

Restoration

In Romans 8: 18 in the New Testament portion of the Bible, the writer of the letter to the Romans, Paul, made an outrageous statement: He says that all human sufferings are “not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Romans 8: 18) The human race has experienced unspeakable amounts ofContinue reading “Restoration”

Miracles, Signs, and Wonders

NOTE: This teaching was originally a lengthy thesis for one of my master’s degrees I earned at Oral Roberts University graduate school in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This teaching is a shortened, simplified, more readable version of that thesis. The thesis had numerous footnotes, endnotes, and other scholarly types of information, but we deleted all of those fromContinue reading “Miracles, Signs, and Wonders”

The Kingdom of God

NOTE:  The Kingdom of God and miracles, signs, and wonders have a “divine connection.”  We can’t understand either of those subjects without understanding that connection.  Along with studying this teaching, please study our other teaching on this website entitled “Miracles, Signs, and Wonders.” Matthew 6: 33: “Seek God’s Kingdom first—aim right at it and focus onContinue reading “The Kingdom of God”

Judgment and Justice

Ask most people what they think about God’s judgments(s), and the response will be something like this: “There is coming a time when God will judge every human, and, as a result, some will go to heaven to live forever with God and some will be cast into hell to burn there forever with Satan.” That’s generallyContinue reading “Judgment and Justice”

Fire!

I find a very serious and disturbing incongruity among most Jesus-believers when it comes to the subject of fire as taught in the Bible. Here’s why… If people are Bible-believing Jesus believers, the concept of fire in the life of the believer goes something like this: God uses fire (“spiritual” fire, not literal fire) inContinue reading “Fire!”
