Whenever Israel followed God, they were victorious; and whenever they tried to fight the enemy their own way, while not being faithful to God, they were defeated.  This is also true in the spiritual sense, concerning our fight against sin. Satan is far smarter and stronger than we are; and whenever we try to fight […]

Honor Thy Father

The Work of the Ekklesia

No wonder it was the gift that Solomon […]

The True Gospel

Laborers for the Harvest

But when he saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd.  Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers […]

Great is God’s Faithfulness

God is a faithful God!  We are told of His faithfulness in very many places in Scripture. One of my favorite turn-to’s when facing challenges is in Lamentations 3. Lamentations 3:22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 3:23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. God in His […]

Ongoing UCG Doctrinal Changes
