What characteristics do you think of when you consider someone or something successful? Perhaps you think of a charismatic leader with great power and wealth. Or maybe a well-traveled, scholarly aristocrat. Could a commoner, a tradesman, an average Joe with no credentials hold your esteem as successful? On earth, Jesus appeared to be the definition of absolute failure. But then the third day… The Champion of the Cross arose from the grave to declare to the world that there was freedom from the power of sin. Because He lives, we shall also live!Read More

After creating heaven and earth, God sought a man who would obey His commandments and be loyal to His authority; God created Adam. Promptly after, Adam and Eve had a counseling session with a snake in the Garden of Eden. The snake seduced him into disobeying the command of God to not eat the fruit of the forbidden tree of life. The angels with flaming swords drove Adam and Eve from the Garden. He tried again in Noah’s generation and God then regretted ever creating man. He then extended a third chance in creating a righteous generation on earth to Abraham who obeyed God completely. To the point where he was even willing to sacrifice his own son, Isaac. God, in return, gave Abraham and all the Jewish people the land of Israel which extends far greater than the state of Israel is today.
Today the ownership of Israel is a controversy that headlines news stories. As followers of Christ, we must speak in support of our Jewish brothers and sisters, defending their right of the land and encourage other Christians to do the same.
God teaches us through storms that He is all-powerful, mighty, and that He alone is in control of planet earth. When humanity begins to feel invincible, He demonstrates His absolute control of the world and our lives through the storms He sends and the storms He conquers. God uses storms to shake us out of our comfort zone and places us in a position of complete surrender to Him for our survival. If we never had problems, how would we know God could solve them? He shows us through our heartache, betrayal, and foolish choices. Through our sobbing voices, rage and unforgiveness we may feel the storm of failure. But remember that the God we serve is The Master of Wind and Waves, The Way Maker, The Prince of Peace, and Heavens Hope.Read More
