He Will Make a Way

by Francis Frangipane Taxes, threat of terror attacks, illness and aging, finances, political conflicts, family relationships, church struggles, fears, insurance issues, air travel impositions, job loss, gasoline prices, war, injustice, death – these are just a few of the enemies most of us face daily.

When You Hurt

by David Wilkerson Dearly Beloved: WHEN YOU HURT – GO TO YOUR SECRET CLOSET AND WEEP OUT ALL YOUR DESPAIR! Jesus wept. Peter wept – bitterly! Peter carried with him the hurt of having denied the very Son of God. Yet those bitter tears worked in him a sweet miracle. He came back to shake…

by David Wilkerson I will never forget the pain I endured when one of my teenage children came to me and confessed, “Dad, I’ve never once felt as if I’ve pleased you. I’ve never felt worthy of your love. I feel like I’ve let you down my whole life. You must be really disappointed in…

The Ministry of Elijah and the Ministry of the Church

by Gabriel Williams The last words of the Old Testament were recorded by the prophet Malachi saying: “Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord” (Malachi 4:5). Now, the angel Gabriel prophesied that John the Baptist would come in the power…

Approved in Christ

by Gabriel Williams One of the more encouraging passages in Scripture is a passage that tends to be overlooked by believers. In Romans 16, Paul takes the time to give a list of various men and women who have been very helpful to him in his ministry and in his own spiritual life. The mere…
