  • Congratulations to local author Steven L. Wright, who has added a fifth volume to his reference books on Kentucky and the Civil War. This is quite an achievement and represents an unimaginable amount of work, but Wright is a dedicated, focused researcher.

  • The man who limits God simply does not know God. Do you think anything is too hard for God? If your answer is yes, you need to revise your thinking. The Bible says “with God all things are possible.”

    Sennacherib and his mighty army came against Hezekiah, the King of Judah. He wrote an insulting letter to Hezekiah. Hezekiah went to God’s house and spread the letter out before God and asked God to save Judah.

  • Therefore comfort one another with these words. (I Thessalonians 4:15-18)

    This is one of the best-known passages about the Lord’s second coming, and it is also one of the most detailed. We are told that there will be a threefold announcement of his coming: a shout, the voice of an archangel and the trumpet of God, verse 16. In addition there is a three-fold promise to believers: the dead in Christ shall rise; we who are alive will be caught away with them; and we shall always be with the Lord v.16-17.
