This excerpt is from The Puritan Classic The Christian in Complete Armour Volume 2 by William Gurnall We have the truth at a cheap rate now; but how soon the market may rise we do not know. Truth is not always available at the same market price. We must buy it at any cost but …
Is This How We Pray for Others?
I am in the middle of writing a bible study on Colossians. I have been studying Paul's prayer for the Colossians. The first sentence of his prayer says it all — “For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you...." Okay. So, Paul first hears about the …
Give Me Self-discipline, Lord!
A well quoted verse is 2 Timothy 1:7. The well known part of the verse is this: "For God has not given us a spirit of fear!" I have quoted this to myself and others for years — even decades. But, today it came to me with fresh eyes and revelation. Let's look at the …
Judge Not? What Did Jesus Mean?
No one likes that feeling of being judged. It feels terrible to know that someone doesn't like you based on a decision or even just based on hearsay and gossip. Just not wanting to be judged is enough to make me not want to make anyone else feel that way! But, what did Jesus actually mean by judge not, lest you be judged? Well, as with anything we hear anyone say, we need to take it within the context of what he was saying at the time, as well as with what he taught consistently throughout his ministry. We also need to read it in the context of the full counsel of the Word of God.
Can One Prophet Save the Nation?
So, I am kind of free-thought writing this tonight. I have a lot of thoughts and feelings on what is happening in our nation. For my international readers- that would be the USA.

"I feel I have a divine mandate to go and tell the people of this world that it is possible to be strong in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Corrie Ten Boom
40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 39 – Stay the Course- Finding Truth in the Middle of Chaos
Paul tells the people that the rapture or the catching away of the church will not happen until the rebellion occurs and the Man of Lawlessness is revealed. I believe we have been in the middle of a the great falling away for several years now. Left and right people are experiencing what they call "deconstruction of faith." Soon, I believe we will see the unveiling of the Man of Lawlessness. The church will see it.

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 33 – God is Just
Let's talk about Lot. I've been feeling a lot like Lot recently. Now, there are a lot of unsavory things about Lot in Genesis- if you don't know who he is, he is the nephew of Abraham who moved to Sodom and Gomorrah because it was located in a beautiful, lush valley. Yet, we read …

40 Days of Prayer and Fasting – Day 32 – Fearless
We fast because we are fixing our eyes on the one who loves us. We fast because we do not want to walk in fear. We fast, because we are asking the Lord to deliver us in our weaknesses. We fast, because we believe the Lord when he promises us to answer us and to give us breakthroughs. We fast, because God calls us to fast. We trust he knows what is best.
