Pearls of Wisdom

Read about what God is saying to His people in these last days. Let Him stir your heart and challenge you to live according to His will.

A Lower Level

O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Psalm 71:17 There are leaders and there are churches within the Christianity of our day who will surely answer for their failure to apply the disciplines of the New Testament to the present generation of young people. Much…

Meekness And Rest

Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.Matthew 5:5 Jesus calls us to His rest, and meekness is His method! But, we may be assured, the meek man is not a human mouse afflicted with a sense of his own inferiority. Rather, he may be in his moral life as bold as a…

Be Thou Exalted

Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.Psalm 57:5 Essentially, God’s gracious plan of salvation was wrought to bring about the restoration of a right relationship between men and women and their Creator.

Preparing Now for Then

. . . the Lord may soon return. I realize there is a lot that we do not know about prophecy, but most Christians are looking for the second coming of the Lord. They expect Him to come. They do not know when He will come, and the ones who claim they do, do not….
