Why

Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump.... For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this...

Him shall He Teach in the way that He shall choose

What man is he that feareth the LORD? HIM SHALL HE TEACH IN THE WAY THAT HE SHALL CHOOSE. (Psa 25:12)                     Very interesting when you think about how each one of us learn by the Word, by our own personal experiences, as well as the...

When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. (Psa 56:9) What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how...
