“But let your ‘Yes,’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” (Matthew 5:37, NKJV) The choices we face … daily … the situations we find ourselves in … daily … whether by our own making or by someone else’s making … range from the smallest […]

Will We Stand Or Bow?

“If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king.  But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image […]

“But God Said …”

“The words of the Lord are pure words, Like silver tried in a furnace of earth, Purified seven times.  You shall keep them, O Lord, You shall preserve them from this generation forever.  The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.” (Psalm 12:6-8, NKJV) The thought of unearthing […]
