Being Purposed in Return Part 2     As a refresher from last week, let's start with a few of those details. King Nebuchadnezzar knew the history of Israel well. He knew of their slavery in Egypt. What he did was a smart move on his part. He took them from their physical dwelling, those touches of their homeland–the...
Being Purposed in Return In the book of Daniel we see the same thing that happened there happening today– the same situations as Daniel and the three Hebrew children faced.

The Opposite–What’s Good About the Lake of Fire What is good about the lake of fire? It's an awful, terrible nightmare so much so that we can't grasp it.

Rowing Hard and Getting Nowhere You've got to hand it to the seamen on board the ship with Jonah. They tried everything to get out of that storm. It was Jonah who got them into this mess.

My Prayer It's so familiar. We can quote it. Generally it's called the Lord's Prayer, but it is really our prayer. It's the most necessary, of utmost necessity for us to pray. It's communication with God and is not like our communication with each other. We get out of touch. God is...
