Jesus’ Answer to Perilous Times

I’m grateful to Dr. Michael Brown and the messages he brought us Sunday morning and Sunday night. He gave us, like the son’s of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32), tremendous insight into our times so we can respond from wisdom.

Interceding for the Persecuted

There’s a Crazy Battle Going On

In Ephesians 6:10-12 and then verse 16 (a great warfare passage of Scripture). The Apostle Paul says, Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do […] Continue reading…
