The Messiah's Imminent Return: Are You Ready?
Throughout both the Old and New Testament there are numerous prophecies pointing to the return of the Messiah in power and glory. The knowledge that the Messiah would someday return and deliver Israel and the saints from the evils of this world has been a tremendous source of encouragement over the ages. The questions have been and continue to be . . . When will Jesus return? Have the signs of his return been fulfilled? Is the Messiah’s return imminent? In this book, we will explore the scriptures that outline the signs that will precede the return of Jesus Christ in power and glory. In addition to looking at scriptures on the topic, we will look at current and historical events that may be significant. Finally, we will ask how this impacts Christians and how we should respond. In Matthew 25, Jesus tells a parable of a bridegroom and ten virgins. The bridegroom’s return was delayed so that the wedding party became drowsy and fell asleep. When he returned late in the night, only those who were ready went with him to the wedding feast. The others were left behind. As Christians, we need to be ready for Jesus’ return. Come prepared to dig deep into scriptures and look forward to Jesus’ return!
In Search of Truth
There is a surge of 'Fake' news overtaking media outlets in the 21st century. Fake news stands in stark contrast to the unbiased objective truth. As integrity and truth become secondary to the desire to sensationalize and sway opinions, we ask ourselves--What is truth? In this devotion series, we explore the scriptures to find out what God says about truth. Further, we explore how we can become agents of truth ourselves and to better discern truth and deception in others.
Your Family Legacy
Have you ever considered what your legacy will be? All of us face death at some point in our lives. We hope that people will remember us and maybe miss us. If we are fortunate, we may even leave something behind--perhaps a financial inheritance or smart gifted grandchildren. While I certainly hope that my children know they are loved, leaving a legacy is more than an assurance of affection, furniture or cash. A legacy also involves passing on beliefs, common traits and values, and a strong sense of priorities. And if you are a Christian, a legacy includes showing the way to eternal life and planting the seed of faith in the hearts of future generations. This devotion series is intended to encourage and re-focus our thinking about leaving an intentional legacy, one that will endure and be built on a firm foundation. A legacy that will endure and please God.
