Treasure

The faithfulness of God overrules the damnation of any soul without an opportunity at repentance. The mercies of God guarantees that no matter how deeply wounded and sunk-in-sin anyone is, he or she will find help, when the LORD is sought. So, why is help so far from people who really need them? Why are…

First Response

A couple of years ago, I met a very high-ranking clergy. I had the opportunity to meet him for a matter and in the middle of our conversations, Life By The Word, a Bible contemplation piece that I had written, came to the fore in our discussions. He asked me a question and said: “What…

The LORD Speaks…

The LORD speaks, His voice is very distinct and clear. When the gentle breeze blows over the waters and the tempest roars in the seas, He speaks… When the way is clear and the pathway is obscured,He speaks… When knowledge is abundant and the understanding is rare,He speaks… When the trees bear much fruits and…

Past Laws, Present Revelations, Future Insight
