Right Now VS. After This

Jeff Heaven, Hope, Prophecy Leave a Comment

Every human soul has an immeasurable state of existence awaiting.  Ever since I was a young boy I have allowed my mind to occasionally ponder the concept of forever.  As a grade-schooler I remember telling my father in a sense of frustration that I simply couldn’t get my brain wrapped around it.  I confess today that it is no easier …

Blowing The Mind Of An Intellectual

Jeff FAITH, Heaven, Humility, Spiritual Growth

It would seem that, out of all the Apostles of Jesus Christ, only one of the men could be classified as an intellectual.  Granted, all of them were endowed with great spiritual wisdom during their lives but only Paul was formally trained and groomed theologically for the calling that ultimately found him.  The man was analytically brilliant, top of his …

Love & Truth

It’s Sunday morning and I find myself in the middle of the minister’s weekly dilemma.  The Lord’s Day is the time when God’s children gather together for the express purpose of worshiping Jesus Christ.  The ideal manifestation of this purpose would be for every single believer in a local assembly to arrive at the church house prayed up, full of …

In Case We Forget Where We’re Heading…

Jeff General, Hope

My friend, Paul, linked this incredibly encouraging piece to one of his recent twitter comments.  I highly recommend that you take 5 minutes, make sure all around you is quiet, and welcome the Holy Spirit to calm your heart, soothe any fears you might be holding and breathe just a little bit of the glorious air which will be ours …
