Micah 7:8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
The image given to us by society is that we ought to build us a happiness-pyramid in life. Salamon was one, who was able to do it, and did it too. Building that pyramid lead him to this conclusion: “I hated life”. Start off in the other direction! „Remember thy creator in the days of…
The Enemy would always wish to “talk into” the faith of the believer. Jesus Christ is the same, Who he was on the cross, and He is not about to change, Why would we then?
When you can keep running the race despite all the reasons in the world to quit it, it is greater grace. When you stay on course, God can give you a new meaning to all things, and show stuff, you didn’t even know existed.
(Eph 2:1-7, 1Cor 13:4-8)
God wishes to make much out of man. Much more than anything else.
He has no methods, but people.
(Psa 8:3-5; Acts 14:17, 17:28; 1Cor 13:11-13; Eph 4:13; Heb 2:5,16)
This discussion was held in connection with the message The Power of The Inner Room And The Mutual Faith.

It is possible to think of abundance by someone having a lot of money or cars and everything goes well in their lives. But the abundant life Jesus was speaking about has nothing to do with this world or our circumstances. Do not be satisfied with the manna!
(Jn 10:10b; Deut 8:2-3)
What does define spirituality? Who is spiritual? What do we know about the commandments?
(Gal 5.; 1Cor 12:31; Jn 13:34-35)
There is a river that is unseen but it can be found. It is not only able to turn your attention away from the circumstances but also able to save your spiritual life.
We love those stories with happy endings in our lives when we know that I had nothing to do with it. But we know well: Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it. What was Paul’s prayer that was so important for the Holy Spirit? Could it be our prayer as well?
(Luk 5:12-13; Phili 1:8-11)
What happened with the consciousness of people? Our desire is to have peace with God. How were we in fellowship with Him in the different dispensations? Now we live under grace that says – be perfect! Is it possible?
(Prov 6:16-19; Psalm 85:7,10; Isa 59:7,11-14; Rom 5:1)
The work of God is constant even when there is no special visible effect. This is because hhis work is in the hearts. (Col 4:9, Phil 1:12, 4:22) Evil is real in this world. Goodness is just not enough to stop evil. If good people become evil to fight evil, then evil has conquered them.…
Evil is not just a tragic event, but much more. Due of the presence of the Spirit of God, the evil one especially focuses on the believer. He always questions the character of God before the believer. Christians must know what evil is, and must be able to call it what it is. What Gospel…
Man is not simply one of the many animals. God’s made us for more, for fellowship with Him, for relationships, for activity. Then we attempt to stand on just two of these three. Freedom or liberty? – society is like a drunken rider. Don’t be satisfied with just the good, press on, seek the Groom,…
Our study is in Daniel. Our topic: the end times. Revelation and Daniel are so closely interconnected, that Revelation practically gives no new information, just orders what we already could know from the Old Testament.
Some have asked me about how conflict may be in unity. True, within unity there is no conflict, that is easy to concede. It is a place of no arguments, of agreement, small differences in thinking, but the foundations one. However, there is the principle of the “one hundred pianos”, there may be a conflict…
Conscience doesn’t lie. How are our decisions made, by what process do we get to them? Sin may block the flow of truth. (Col 1:10) The world has a faulty concept of sin. Yet sin is so real, it robs me and I must learn to deal with it. For that, I need to learn…
Are you offended by Jesus? Do you rather choose your own life? The ruler of this world is the Enemy. there will be no peace there. We believe the Scriptures, the testimony therein. (Mt 10:8,11-16,32-40, 11:6, Jo 20:29) A door of faith is opened – not ready-made things, but opportunities. Countless opportunity, like the possibility…
