    IT’S NOT MAGIC, IT’S SUPERNATURAL!

    “Now for some time a man named Simon had practiced sorcery in the city and amazed all the people of Samaria. He boasted that he was someone great, and all the people, both high and low, gave him their attention and exclaimed, “This man is rightly called the Great Power of God.” They followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his sorcery. But when they believed Philip as he proclaimed the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women. Simon himself believed and was baptized. And he followed Philip everywhere, astonished by the…

    WHO ME?

    “One day the angel of GOD came and sat down under the oak in Ophrah that belonged to Joash the Abiezrite, whose son Gideon was threshing wheat in the winepress, out of sight of the Midianites. The angel of GOD appeared to him and said, “ GOD is with you, O mighty warrior!” Gideon replied, “With me, my master? If GOD is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all the miracle-wonders our parents and grandparents told us about, telling us, ‘Didn’t GOD deliver us from Egypt?’ The fact is, GOD has nothing to do with us—he has turned us over to Midian.” But GOD faced…

    THE GOD WHO HOLDS YOUR FAITH, HOLDS YOUR MIRACLE.

    We unknowingly and knowingly place our faith in a lot of things and people every day, without a thought of how it will eventually work out. Take for example the chairs we sit on. We just plop down trusting it’s gonna support our weight. We drive through tunnels, over bridges and highways with no thought of them ever collapsing, we get on airplanes and fly for hours expecting a pilot we never met to get us safely to our destination. We trust the words of doctors simply because they went to college and studied medicine. We trust the meteorologist for the weather, we eat at restaurants but never saw the…

    FAITHFUL !

    “For the LORD, your Redeemer, and He who formed you from the womb says this, “I am the LORD, Maker of all things, Who alone stretches out the heavens, Who spreads out the earth by Myself, Frustrating the signs and confounding the omens of boasters (false prophets), Making fools out of fortune-tellers, Counteracting the wise And making their knowledge ridiculous, Confirming the word of His servant And carrying out the plan of His messengers. It is I who says of Jerusalem, ‘She shall [again] be inhabited!’ And of the cities of Judah, ‘They shall [again] be built.’ And I will raise up and restore her ruins. It is I who…

    DON’T MISS OUT ON WHAT YOU ARE WAITING FOR.

    “In the beginning [before all time] was the Word ( Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God. All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being. In Him was life [and the power to bestow life], and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness did not understand it or overpower it or appropriate it or absorb it [and is unreceptive to it]. There it was—the true Light [the genuine,…

    PRESENT but ABSENT

    Have you ever been in deep conversation with someone and realize after a few minutes that they have checked out? Or you notice that they’re looking at you but their eyes are glazing over? Lol then you ask, what did I just say? What is always the rote response? I hear you! I’ve been listening! Then they say something totally off topic. Yup. They had checked out. Jesus had that problem with the scribes and Pharisees, He also had it with the folks who just came for the natural bread. (John 6:26)The spectators. Present but absent. Ask a school teacher or college professor, how often they’re faced with this problem,…

    SPLITTING HAIRS to AVOID the TRUTH

    Have you ever had the pleasure of speaking with a Jehovah’s Witness? I have on multiple occasions, but after a few minutes they always run off, even though I beg them to stay. Their main question is always, “why do you think we’re having so much trouble in the world?” My response remains the same “Sin” man’s inability to transform his life by doing good deeds. At this time is when they start checking out.  They’re big on performance. But I must hand it to them. Even though they’re serving a mixture of truth and falsehood, they’re hitting the pavement with those magazines trying to make converts to their organization.…

    DEFLECTION and DISTRACTION

    “How horrible it will be for you, experts in Moses’ Teachings and Pharisees! You hypocrites! You lock people out of the kingdom of heaven. You don’t enter it yourselves, and you don’t permit others to enter when they try. “How horrible it will be for you, experts in Moses’ Teachings and Pharisees! You hypocrites! You cross land and sea to recruit a single follower, and when you do, you make that person twice as fit for hell as you are. “How horrible it will be for you, you blind guides! You say, ‘To swear an oath by the temple doesn’t mean a thing. But to swear an oath by the…

    WHAT DO YOU REALLY REALLY WANT?

    “What leads to [the unending] quarrels and conflicts among you? Do they not come from your [hedonistic] desires that wage war in your [bodily] members [fighting for control over you]? You are jealous and covet [what others have] and your lust goes unfulfilled; so you murder. You are envious and cannot obtain [the object of your envy]; so you fight and battle. You do not have because you do not ask [it of God]. You ask [God for something] and do not receive it, because you ask with wrong motives [out of selfishness or with an unrighteous agenda], so that [when you get what you want] you may spend it…

    TURNING PRESSURE INTO PRAISE.

    “The crowd also joined in the attack against them, and the chief magistrates tore their robes off them and ordered that Paul and Silas be beaten with rods. After striking them many times [with the rods], they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to guard them securely. He, having received such a [strict] command, threw them into the inner prison (dungeon) and fastened their feet in the stocks [in an agonizing position]. But about midnight when Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; suddenly there was a great earthquake, so [powerful] that the very foundations of the…
