God’s Kingdom – How it Began

by R. Prabahar The gospel of God was proclaimed by the Lord Jesus Christ as the kingdom of God. But it was John the Baptist who was the first to proclaim this kingdom. Jesus then laid the foundation for it through His death and resurrection and finally established it through the Holy Spirit on the…

The Reward of Living a Disciplined Life

by Raymond Wanner The Lord has been reminding me again recently that who we are and what we do determines our destiny. I see this from verses like: “The foolishness of man ruins his way” (Proverbs 19:23) and, “The integrity of the upright will guide them, but the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them”…

Experiencing The Depths Of Jesus Christ

by Madame Guyon Dear Reader, It is by the Lord gaining your heart, and no other way, that all your sins can be put away. If the heart can be gained, Jesus Christ would reign in peace, and the whole Church would be renewed. In fact, we are discussing the very thing that caused the…

A Message to Overwhelmed Believers

by David Wilkerson I speak now to those believers who are overwhelmed by accumulating afflictions.

His Excellent Greatness

by T.

One basic passage of tremendous implication is that which came from His own lips:….”no one knoweth the Son, save the Father…..” That is a…

Perfectly Weak

by Francis Frangipane According to the Scriptures, Moses was “educated in all the learning of the Egyptians.” Indeed, as a prince in Egypt, Moses had grown to be a “man of power in words and deeds” (Acts 7:22).

I Can’t Talk to You… Unless!

by David Wilkerson Sadly, great numbers of Christians do not know God’s voice. Some can go for months, even years, without ever receiving an intimate word from the Lord in their inner man. Oh, God did speak to them at one time. But over the years, they’ve learned to silence his voice in their hearts….

And When I Saw Him

by Oswald Chambers (1917) “And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as one dead.” ( Revelation 1:17 ) These words were uttered by the disciple who knew Jesus most intimately, the one who laid his head on Jesus’ bosom, the disciple “whom Jesus loved” – when he saw Him in His unveiled…
