I Am He Who Searches Minds and Hearts!

Posted onFebruary 2, 2024 | by: Rob Benson | 0 comments

"I am He who searches Minds and Hearts!" Wow! What a bold, and cutting statement from the mouth of Christ to the churches. It's a wake up call directing us ALL to repentance. Though some us may bring God's love, live in faith, serve others, persevere through and even have greater works than we had at first; these do NOT amount to anything if we continue in rebellion, lusting after and indulging in sexual immorality according to God's TRUTH. ...Keep Reading

The Fire-Storms of life happen, they are inevitable! How do you withstand them in a world where humanity is quickly, but surely losing its moorings: truth, character, dignity, morality and values no longer matter. "Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods... ," as a song from my youth once put it... In a world where it's all about "Me" we've lost the strength of community that aids in facing the Fire-Storms of daily life. "The street wise hercules," often only found in video games, marvel movies, grid-iron gladiators and books, there demand begs a question, why are we crave a virtual or alternate reality world where we embody the spirit of heroic, non-existent beings?...Keep Reading

No, following Jesus as He encounters folks that are utterly hopeless, just might change how you look at change. Change = A supernaturally powered life long journey of becoming who you were always designed to "Be."...Keep Reading
