  • COLUMN: Things will get worse in the last days

    These are the last days before Christ comes back and calls a halt to this sinful world. Jesus speaks of the end time in Matthew 24. Paul describes the last days in his second letter to Timothy (3:1-5). He characterizes them as being  “terrible times.”

  • COLUMN: God is with us, 24-7

    Every hour of every day, or as many say 24-7, was the experience of Enoch.  Enoch walked with God (Genesis 5:21-24). He was always with God. In Psalm 73:23 the Psalmist speaks of always being in God’s presence. He believed, “It is good to be near God.”

    How do we walk with God continually through the day? We must invite God into our lives 24-7.

    To always be with God means we are held in God’s hands.  

  • COLUMN: 'Holy anger' is not the same as hatred

    What causes hatred?  

    Hatred comes from following our own sinful desires (Galatians 5:19-23).

    Is hating ever appropriate for God’s people? We see throughout Scripture that numerous situations elicited God’s hatred: idolatry among his people, injustice, oppression of the weak and poor, abuse of the marriage covenant and the dishonoring of his own name.  

  • COLUMN: God is with us all the way

    God gives many wonderful promises in his word.  There is God’s promise of love (John 3:16), forgiveness (1 John 1:9), salvation (Ephesians 2:8), everlasting life (John 10:28), answered prayer (1 John 5:14-15), and many, many others – about 7,000 promises. Many of those promises guide and encourage us. While the world and circumstances may change, God’s word never changes.
