LIVING IN INSANE TIMES Part 6 Rayola Kelley

For the past five months we have been considering the times we live in. They are insane but the truth is insanity reigns when you consider that one of the meanings of it is failing to deal in and with the real world around you. We, in America, have been conditioned by the world to […]

THE INCONVENIENT FACTOR

By Jeannette Haley Inconveniences are just part of life no matter how much time, money, and energy we expend trying to eradicate them from our own personal environment. Let’s face it, we all love having things convenient for our use whether it’s indoors or out. When you think about the details of your daily life, […]

WHERE ARE YOU PLANTED?

By Jeannette Haley “The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon. Those that be planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They shall still bring forth fruit in old age; they shall be fat and flourishing.” –Psalm 92:12-14        […]

LIVING IN INSANE TIMES Part 4 By Rayola Kelley

For the last couple of months, I have been considering what it means to survive the times we live in. I do not think the question for a believer is how do I survive these times but how do I stand in these times, withstand them, and continue to stand. There is a difference between […]

VISION OR IMAGINATION?

By Jeannette Haley “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” – Proverbs 29:19a What does it mean that people perish if there is no vision? The Hebrew word for “vision” in this Scripture is “chazown” which means “a sight” (mentally) i.e. a dream, revelation or oracle. The idea here is that if the people […]

HATH GOD SAID?

By Jeannette Haley “Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of  every tree of the garden?” – Genesis 3:1b The unmistakable hiss of that old serpent, Satan, can still be heard covering the whole earth, yet every generation of mankind automatically listens to his flood of unceasing lies. Few ever stop to think, discern […]
