Prayer

God Says: “We Need to Talk.” Before I invited Jesus to take up permanent residence in my life at age eighteen, I had very little understanding of church, religion, the Bible, God . . . .   But somehow I knew that since I had recently invited Jesus to come to live inside me, I should attend aContinue reading “Prayer”

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.” Neither of the two teachings will make full sense to you unless youContinue 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”

Husbands and Wives

Does the Bible really teach that a Jesus-believer husband is ruler over his wife? The head of the household? The Lord of the manor? Must a Jesus-believer wife really be wholly, docilely, meekly subservient to her husband? This teaching will very briefly summarize some interesting biblical scholarship about the subject of the roles of Jesus-believerContinue reading “Husbands and Wives”

The Glory of God

NOTE:  February 2022. The following teaching was originally written and published by Ms. Carmen Benson in 1968 in a little pamphlet published by Logos International, Plainfield, New Jersey. The pamphlet is out of print and Logos International is no longer in business.  To my thinking, Ms Benson’s teaching is so important that I wanted to reproduceContinue reading “The Glory of God”

Gifts of the Holy Spirit

Although this teaching will, in general, examine all the supernatural gifts of Holy Spirit mentioned in the New Testament, specifically, I will address the matter of speaking in tongues in more detail—because that is what I have been asked by some of my readers to do: focus some teaching about the supernatural gift of speakingContinue reading “Gifts of the Holy Spirit”

Forgive!

Anything in your life you need forgiveness for? Anyone you need to forgive? Anything in your own life you need to forgive yourself for? Some people don’t even believe in forgiveness, feeling it’s a sign of moral and emotional weakness. Some people feel if someone else has done something to harm them, they need toContinue reading “Forgive!”

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 followers of Jesus, the concept of fire in the life of the believer goes something like this: God uses fire (“spiritual” fire, not literal fire)Continue reading “Fire!”

Faith

Beyond our five senses, beyond our mind, beyond our own thoughts, beyond our consciousness or subconsciousness . . . lies an inner, limitless expanse of faith “residing” in our human spirits. What is faith? How many definitions of faith have you read or heard in your life? Confusing, isn’t it? I’m not going to springContinue reading “Faith”
