A Call to Grief

A CONSPIRACY OF INTERRUPTIONS
All hell quakes at the effectual, fervent prayer of a single believer. The powerful praying of just one intercessor sounds like raging thunder in the caverns of the damned. Not one inch of space in hell remains unaffected by a believer who denies himself, ... read more

A CONTRITE SPIRIT

A LESSON ON LISTENING
God had to teach Elijah a lesson on listening so he took him to the top of Mr. Horeb and gave him an illustrated sermon.

A LIFE OF COMMUNION
Multitudes of Gods offspring know little or nothing of a life of communion with him. Why is this so?

A Message for Christians Who Have Bad Days!
